Amendment of the Law (29 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: I am having some difficulty in following the logic of the hon. Lady's argument. Does she accept that although house building has fallen in the recession, if it were not for Government funding there would be no investment in housing at all? That is not related in the slightest to the planning system, which has not altered as we have gone into recession. Does she accept that during that period,...

Amendment of the Law (29 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: My right hon. Friend will be aware that when the Select Committee on Communities and Local Government had a one-off sitting on housing and the credit crunch, all the witnesses from the house building and housing association sectors clearly welcomed what the Government were doing and said that it was not enough. Can he think of anyone from the house building sector who thinks that the...

Points of Order (15 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. I absolutely take the point that the hon. Member for Christchurch (Mr. Chope) is a senior Member of this House and will be well aware of the convention relating to members of the Panel of Chairs. However, my understanding is that the other two Opposition Members who were present in the House, and who might equally have shouted "Object", are...

Phyllis Starkey: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Local Government (Devon, Norfolk and Suffolk) (9 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: Does my hon. Friend accept that the point that Opposition Members have made both to him and to my right hon. Friend the Member for Norwich, South (Mr. Clarke)-that the formation of a unitary authority in Norwich would somehow cost everybody else in the county much more money-can only really be true if the county council is taking considerably more income out of Norwich to subsidise services...

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Local Government (Devon, Norfolk and Suffolk) (9 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: I note, Madam Deputy Speaker, that Conservative Members appear to be challenging your ruling in calling me, and I sure that they did not intend to do that and would wish to rephrase their sedentary comments. When listening to the peroration of the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill), I felt that he had lost his knowledge of what had happened in the past on local government...

Opposition Day — [5th Allotted Day]: Local Government (Devon, Norfolk and Suffolk) (9 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman can tell me, but I am talking about Exeter. He is talking about a county council that is seeking to impose its views on the city. He is belittling the views, published in the local newspaper in Exeter, of two Conservative Members of Exeter city council. He is in danger of suggesting that those Conservative councillors are writing one thing in their local...

Phyllis Starkey: The hon. Gentleman talked about joint working and seemed to suggest that if councils had joint working arrangements, they should logically merge and cease to be separate councils. Is that the purport of what he is saying? Is he saying that every council that is in a partnership with another one should merge?

Phyllis Starkey: The Government have given Milton Keynes council funding to appoint an officer to start implementing the empty dwelling management order, because the Liberal Democrat-controlled council has done absolutely nothing on it for the past three years, despite the fact that I went to it with lists of empty properties that were prime candidates for the order. Does the Minister agree, however, that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: September Guarantee (8 Mar 2010)

Phyllis Starkey: I thank the Secretary of State for those additional places. He knows that the youth unemployment level in Milton Keynes has gone up quite considerably during the recession.
