Bill Presented: Intelligence and Security Committee (17 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: It is pleasing to hear that the Government attach importance to the work of the ISC. The belief that the Committee provides independent and effective parliamentary oversight is gratifying. We spend hours and hours on that work: I make no complaint, but it is worth putting on record that we spend as much time as it takes, and more, if we think that the answers that we have been given are not...

Bill Presented: Intelligence and Security Committee (17 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: I feel that I should give way to my hon. Friend, if he has called me a poodle.

Bill Presented: Intelligence and Security Committee (17 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: I wish that there were an answer that would reassure us that there will never again be a 7/7, but sadly, as my hon. Friend knows, that answer cannot be given. Terrorists have to be right once; the agencies, and all of us, have to be right all the time if we are to protect ourselves. Frankly, the question was inappropriate.

Bill Presented: Intelligence and Security Committee (17 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: I will not give way at the moment, but I will shortly. In the 2006-07 report, many of the agencies commented that there was a level of satisfaction about the finances provided by the Government. The hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Grieve), who is not in his place, made the appropriate statement that a significant amount of money is being spent, which must be monitored at all...

Bill Presented: Intelligence and Security Committee (17 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: That was a very positive question about something that the Committee should consider in greater detail. In fact, we have done some work in this field, and it is a mistake that we have not referenced it. I will comment on that a little further in my speech if I have time. There is a positive response to the work load that the agencies face. People who have read the report will know that there...

Bill Presented: Intelligence and Security Committee (17 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: I hope that the hon. Gentleman will acknowledge that the Intelligence and Security Committee published its report in December 2007. It is now summer 2008. Since December 2007, much information has appeared in the public domain that was not previously available, so there is a time gap.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: My right hon. and learned Friend will know that this week we are celebrating 30 years of successful in vitro fertilisation. She will also know that the celebration is somewhat less than it should be, because National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines are not being put in place on fertility treatment. Only nine primary care trusts are putting them in place; shamefully,...

A1: Topical Questions (8 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

A1: Topical Questions (8 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: I was delighted to hear my right hon. Friend confirm in yesterday's statement that the Gallagher review has rejected a moratorium on biofuels development. Will she acknowledge and accept that by slowing down the rate of use of biofuels, which according to the targets set will be 5 per cent. by 2010-11, we will undermine investment and research in the world's leading biofuels company on Teesside?

Written Answers — Transport: Cycling (8 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what funding her Department has provided for (a) local authorities and (b) others to support the provision of training for cyclists in the last three years.

Petition: Immigration (John and Stella Park) (7 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: I have a petition from the residents of Teesside and others. The petitioners declare a serious concern about the possible deportation of John and Stella Park to the Republic of Korea with their mother. John and Stella Park are two young South Koreans who live with their mother in my constituency. They are being educated at Yarm School and are highly talented if not brilliant musicians. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Social Housing (1 Jul 2008)

Dari Taylor: What consideration is the Department giving to the CDS Co-operatives housing project, which provides social housing and allows people to buy or part-rent according to their income? The housing remains permanently in a community trust, and thus is an asset for everyone in the community.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Secondary School Standards (30 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: What plans he has to raise secondary school standards in Stockton, South constituency.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Secondary School Standards (30 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I am grateful for my right hon. Friend's confidence and for his statement about Thornaby community school. My right hon. Friend met the school's competent and professional head teacher and deputy head teacher. My concern is about how, and in what way, they will benefit from the challenge fund. Will parents be included in whatever support level we could see being delivered? Most particularly,...

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Sentencing Policy (17 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Will the hon. Gentleman agree and accept, on the Floor of the House tonight, that the number of convictions fell by a third under a previous Conservative Administration, and that more people are in prison under this Government than was ever the case then?

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Sentencing Policy (17 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Will my right hon. Friend add two more statistics to those that he has given? One is the number of convictions during the late '80s and early '90s. That fell by a third. The second statistic is that crime trebled in the same period.

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Sentencing Policy (17 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Not according to my notes.

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Sentencing Policy (17 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: The hon. Gentleman is making an appropriate statement to the House, and I totally agree with some of what he has said. Consultation with the local community has been rather thin on the ground, and it would have been infinitely better had it been more defined. However, he can take it from me that the relationship between that organisation and the police in my constituency has become very...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: The hon. Gentleman does not think so. In fact, of course, the problem is serious and I found the evidence quite compelling. Crucially, we also wanted to see how the civil libertarian argument could be supported. We held very clear sittings during which we took evidence from Justice and from Liberty. Our concern was to consider the alternatives to extending the 28-day period. Was it true, for...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: As the hon. Gentleman will guess, Lord Carlile did not make that statement to the Committee. However, he did make statements that many of us checked, including the statement that we are not the most anti-libertarian country at all. We compare very favourably with others. The other statement that I would make quite determinedly is that many of the countries that we compare ourselves with, such...
