Teesside Steel Industry (16 Dec 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am delighted that my hon. Friend has secured the debate; I am only sad that it lasts just 30 minutes. References have been made, and he is now making them, to the amounts of money that we require to ensure that we keep steel making on the Tees. Reference has also been made to the European globalisation adjustment fund, which we could tap into. That is a seriously large sum of money. In his...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Pre-Budget Report (9 Dec 2009)

Dari Taylor: I warmly welcome the Chancellor's announcement of the innovation investment fund for research into the development of the green economy, which is led significantly by Teesside's chemical process industry. Will One NorthEast administer that fund, giving local companies an easy opportunity to get advice and access to it? If not, which Department will administer the fund and from what date?

Energy and Climate Change: International Co-operation (5 Nov 2009)

Dari Taylor: I wish to remind my right hon. Friend of his very good visit to Ensus on Teesside, which related to some very complex scientific analysis. During that visit, he stated that his chief scientist would visit Ensus. When will that visit take place, because we seriously look forward to it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: European Council (2 Nov 2009)

Dari Taylor: I warmly support the Prime Minister's determination to achieve an ambitious Copenhagen conference on climate change. With that in mind, will the growth in the consumption of animal wheat be on the agenda, as it significantly adds to CO2 emissions? If it is not, will my right hon. Friend allow me to invite scientists from Teesside, who will prove to him that it is essential that the item is on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (2 Nov 2009)

Dari Taylor: The statement on helicopters last week suggested to the House that we are seriously looking at cutting expenditure-those were the reports in the press over the weekend-and that the MOD staff are not on top of the issue. I would like reassurances that those reports are nonsensical.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Social Enterprise (28 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: My hon. Friend will know that Community Ventures is a social enterprise that serves my constituency very well. Is her Department considering advising social enterprises to put social clauses into public contracting, so that training opportunities and employment regeneration are added to social contracts?

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Social Enterprise (28 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what assessment she has made of the contribution of social enterprise to the economy.

Opposition Day — [19th allotted day]: Climate Change (Political Response) (21 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: I have no problem with what the Government are doing. It is focused and it is delivering, and the 10:10 campaign is excellent. However, will my hon. Friend acknowledge that one of the major contributors to carbon dioxide emission is the growth of animal feed? Will she also acknowledge that using the renewable transport fuel obligation methodology generates a carbon saving of 70 per cent. in...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Higher Education (14 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Norwich, North (Chloe Smith). I warmly welcome her to the House, as do all hon. Members. It was a pleasure to listen to her speech, which was young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable-characteristics and qualities that are warmly welcome here. It is my belief that she will represent her constituents with care and professionalism. I congratulate her,...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Higher Education (14 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: Would my right hon. Friend also like to point out to the hon. Member for Havant (Mr. Willetts) that he is wrong when he states that old universities are letting students down?

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Higher Education (14 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: I had hoped that the hon. Member for Havant would give way on that point. Does my right hon. Friend acknowledge the veracity of the statement from vice-chancellors-perhaps not all, but certainly some-when they say: "If we are to have a further 10,000 places, is someone going to tell us where the classrooms and lecturers are coming from?" Those are very serious considerations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Cancer Services (13 Oct 2009)

Dari Taylor: In September, I had a breast cancer scare. Within five working days I was in the hospital and being screened-and everything was fine. I want the House to know that that was not because I am a Member of Parliament: when the staff contacted me by phone, they called me Mr. Taylor. I had to correct that quickly! I raise the matter here today because I received excellent service from the...

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Graduate Job Prospects (16 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what assessment he has made of job prospects for graduates in the current economic downturn.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Care and Support (Reform) (14 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: I warmly welcome and support my right hon. Friend's statement today, but I would say to him that this area of policy is seen by all as being incredibly complex. It is invariably individual in nature, and its complexity can leave families with the most crippling problems. Will he assure the House that everyone's contributions to the consultation-including those of organisations representing...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (9 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: Would it not be appropriate for this risk assessment process to include parliamentarians?

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (9 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am just about at explosion point. I am really very sorry to say this to the House, but when the hon. Gentleman tells us that if the Government put in a bit more oomph or the Home Office handled its work load with a bit more urgency so that intercepted material could be used as evidence today, it is obvious that he does not know what he is talking about. Chilcot and the rest of them have...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (9 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: The hon. Gentleman is generous in giving way. The subject is difficult and detailed and we all need to ensure that we are concentrating. I am listening carefully to the hon. Gentleman. There is a small but vocal ethnic group in my constituency and in Teesside. None of its members has spoken to me about pre-charge detention and none has criticised it or perceived it as problematic. Indeed,...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (9 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: Is my right hon. Friend going to announce to the House how many individuals have been put on pre-charge detention because there is concern about their activities?

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (9 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am most grateful to my right hon. Friend, who has indeed been generous. Will he acknowledge from the Dispatch Box that the Home Office is not communicating effectively? In the Yorkshire bomb factory episode, it was 14 days before officers could get into the factory to start the investigation. It is critical for all of us to feel that we have a sense of what is going on, so that we can...

Care Homes (Domestic Pets): Clause 20 — Bingo duty (8 Jul 2009)

Dari Taylor: I ask the Government to think again. The argument has been well presented three times in the Chamber that bingo is a pleasurable activity for many people, often the elderly and those on low incomes. It is clear that we all want the Government to reconsider. I support the amendments that my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley, Central (Mr. Illsley) has tabled, and if the Government give us no...
