Support for Women (Economic Downturn) (5 Mar 2009)

Dari Taylor: Madam Deputy Speaker, it is a pleasure to see you in the Chair this afternoon. Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that, although tax credits and the national minimum wage have lifted women's wages to a point that was not considered possible in the early 1990s, the pay gap still exists, especially for blue-collar workers? Is it not time that the salaries and wages paid by all...

Support for Women (Economic Downturn) (5 Mar 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend for giving way again. She is addressing the issue of the recession very positively, but will she comment on the statement made by one Opposition Member that recession can be good for us?

Bill Presented — Northern Ireland Bill: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill (23 Feb 2009)

Dari Taylor: If the hon. Gentleman is saying that pre-school support and nursery care are so important why are we left with the statement that "David Cameron has pledged to cut £200 million from the Sure Start budget every year—the equivalent of closing one in five Children's Centres across the country"? The absolute fact is that two centres in my constituency are now under threat, so I should...

Bill Presented — Northern Ireland Bill: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill (23 Feb 2009)

Dari Taylor: My right hon. Friend will know that the chemical process industry on Teesside will require 24,000 high-quality apprentices over the next 10 years. Those apprentices will need to have been taught physics, chemistry and maths separately. Will he reassure the House that those subjects will be taught separately in secondary schools, and not just as general science?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iran (Missile Development) (23 Feb 2009)

Dari Taylor: What attempts have the Government made to speak with Iran about the possibility of its signing, or at least seeing the value of, the nuclear non-proliferation treaty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Feb 2009)

Dari Taylor: My right hon. Friend knows that on Teesside the renewables and biofuels industry is both vibrant and growing. The Teesside Ensus plant alone will produce a third of the UK's bioethanol demand—the equivalent of taking 300,000 cars off the road—while using soy animal feed in a significant form, which will reduce deforestation. What are the Government—

Business of the House: Holocaust Memorial Day (29 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: The theme of Holocaust memorial day is "Stand up to hatred". With that in mind, I want to quote from an article about Carl Schmitt. If anyone is an exemplar of hatred, that man is. He was an anti-Semite; he made it very clear that he was a Nazi; and he was a "leading political thinker of his day". He "held that liberalism is too weak to sustain passion and conviction at times of crisis. For...

Business of the House (29 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: Wind farms are becoming increasingly central to the delivery of renewable energy. However, there is no factual knowledge that we can count on that defines the efficiency of the source of energy and there are no guidelines about the location of these wind farms. At present, Stockton and Sedgefield are facing planning requests for more than 90 turbines. This is, of course, a problem that the...

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Find Your Talent Initiative (19 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what progress has been made on the find your talent initiative; and if he will make a statement.

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for North-East Hampshire (Mr. Arbuthnot). I am pleased to say that he was as excellent as a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee as he is now, and he is of course much missed. We have heard some excellent contributions today. Both Front-Bench teams presented to the House a commonality of sentiment and a drive to persuade us that...

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: Before I give way, let me finish clarifying what General Sir Mike Jackson said, as he issued the statement that the military's and the soldier's job was done and it was time for civil and political action to take over.

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am sure the hon. Gentleman will know that I am bound to say that if we could all read a crystal ball, we might all have understood what the insurgency and the suicide bombings were actually going to throw at us. We might have made a much clearer assessment of al-Qaeda's involvement; we might have done—

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: No. The hon. Gentleman implies from a sedentary position that such an assessment had been made. Let me say to him quite frankly that I do not believe that that was the case. There was a debate in this House about the position there. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman and I should agree to disagree for the moment.

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: The hon. Gentleman and I will have to agree to disagree on that. I want to take the House one stage further and reference the statements made by the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki. He has made many calculations about the competence of Iraq's army and police force to deliver a secure Iraq in which all civil society can survive. Again, some of his words are quite clear. Although he...

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: Better than ours.

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am quite concerned, and would like to ask my right hon. Friend whether I have got this right. I listened to the debate about Operation Charge of the Knights, and I believed that the Chief of the Defence Staff made it quite clear to us that our forces' involvement in that episode was to help "to improve the conditions in the city and set the foundations for future progress". I would...

Bills Presented: Iraq: Future Strategic Relationship (14 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: I am hearing in the House today that British troops "eventually" got involved. As I understand it—and this was not just quoted in formal Ministry of Defence material I have read, but in an article in The Guardian on 18 December—it is clearly stated that the Iraqis drew up the plan with British prompting and help. I am sure that I have got this right, but I want it on the record. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Veterans (Homelessness) (12 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: What recent steps he has taken to provide support for veterans who become homeless.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Veterans (Homelessness) (12 Jan 2009)

Dari Taylor: In thanking my hon. Friend for that response, I ask him to reassure the House that the statistics held on the number of veterans who are seeking good housing are accurate. We are aware that London's figures have improved enormously, but what about the rest of the country and, in particular, the north-east? It is time that the MOD spoke to every local authority and housing association to...

Written Answers — Transport: Renewable Energy: Transport (18 Dec 2008)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport with reference to the written ministerial statement of 13 November 2008, Official Report, columns 66-7WS, on the Draft Renewable Transport Fuel Obligations (Amendment) Order 2009, (1) if he will reverse his plans to reduce the level of the obligation for the 2009-10 obligation period following the discovery of the drafting error in the 2007...
