Mr George Stevenson: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 1 — NHS Foundation Trusts (8 Jul 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: As my right hon. Friend suggests, this is an extremely important matter. Clause 15(1) says that an authorisation "may" restrict. As I understand it, that "may" was inserted in place of "must". How does that strengthen regulation?

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 43 - Air weapons: age limits (20 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. I was in the hon. Lady's constituency with my grandchildren at the weekend to watch the kite festival, and very nice it was too, but her intervention was just a little too long.

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 43 - Air weapons: age limits (20 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. The political topography of the country is not at issue.

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 43 - Air weapons: age limits (20 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Amendment No. 249, in clause 43, page 33, line 30, at end insert— '(3A) In section 23(2) add ( ) he is using the weapon or ammunition on private property with the consent of the occupier in an activity which would be lawful other than by virtue of his age.'. Amendment No. 250, in clause 43, page 33, line 30, at end insert—...

M6 (13 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: My right hon. Friend just mentioned the south of Stoke, which, of course, is consistent with the name of my constituency. Will he agree, however, that any consideration of measures to relieve congestion on the M6, particularly in relation to the MidMan study, would be conditional, in an important way, on the Strategic Rail Authority having the funds to ensure that any rail developments as a...

Fire Services Bill (8 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: I hope that I said that I was prepared to give the Bill the benefit of the doubt, when I made my speech.

Fire Services Bill (8 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham, South (Alan Simpson), and I am about to disappoint my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Mr. Drew), who said that all contributions by Labour Members will oppose the Bill. I want to put on the record the important reasons for my position. We have heard many claims about being in the Labour and trade union movements, all of...

Fire Services Bill (8 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Yes, they call me by my first name, the hon. Gentleman may be surprised to hear—there is no "Mr. Hammond" in my constituency. I pick up more cases in my local Tesco than in my surgery, but that is another matter. To be serious, we must justify the Bill. My constituents are asking me why, if the pottery workers have had to accept a nil increase in their pay, the FBU will not accept 16 per...

Fire Services Bill (8 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: That may well turn out to be the case, although we hope not. If the hon. Gentleman is patient with me, I shall deal with that issue in a moment. I submit that my general point is a valid one. When employers' organisations offer deals but do not know how they will be paid for, and then ask the Government to sign the cheque, is it not the Government's responsibility to turn around and say "Hang...

Fire Services Bill (8 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: We have heard from the Deputy Prime Minister, and it is not in the legislation as I understand it. So the Bill is probably irrelevant.

Fire Services Bill (8 May 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Exactly. The question was asked, and the response was, "Well, there ain't much we can do." That is why I use the word "irrelevant". However, for the Government to sit back and do nothing when a public interest issue is at stake would worry me almost as much. I view the Bill as a catalyst, no more, to show that the Government are serious about the public interest, which I recognise is an...
