[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Biofuels (5 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I am sorry, but I am far too old to accept experts per se. The hon. Lady said what she did with serious integrity, and I respect that absolutely, but I am far too old—I will not say how old I am—to be taken in. Over the past 40 years, I have seen many expert reports that have been shelved. I do, of course, take note, but I am not absolutely convinced. To conclude, I cannot support the...

Written Answers — Transport: Driving Tuition (3 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to the written ministerial statement of 7 May 2008, Official Report, columns 34-36WS, on learning to drive, what estimate her Department has made of the change in costs for learner drivers arising from the implementation of her proposals on driver training and testing.

Orders of the Day: Clause 14 — Conditions of licences for treatment (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: This is obviously a passionate debate and people have serious concerns about the outcome of the vote tonight. I was delighted when the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr. Duncan Smith) said that there were only a few studies that were up to date. That was a very important statement for all of us, because it told us that what we are attempting to assess is new and...

Orders of the Day: Clause 14 — Conditions of licences for treatment (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: It might not surprise my right hon. Friend to learn that I do not agree with him. That which is appropriate for children who are adopted or fostered is equally appropriate for any who are produced by IVF; I see no difference at all, because parenting is parenting. I wish to put on record some of my concerns about this debate. The debate is not just about whether every child needs a father or...

Orders of the Day: Clause 14 — Conditions of licences for treatment (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: That is the whole point. The hon. Gentleman makes a good point, because how would we take account of these things? There would have to be a process by which people make a judgment. I am trying to say to the House that medics have a seriously difficult situation to handle, that we would be adding one more part to that and that that would be very problematic for them. I chair the all-party...

Orders of the Day: Clause 14 — Conditions of licences for treatment (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: This is an important point, and I wish to turn it around. I have asked such infertile women and couples time and again to write to their Member of Parliament and to speak loudly about the fact that they are discriminated against. On the whole, they will not do so. They are very shy, and they are seriously concerned. As they do not wish to express that publicly, the fact that they do not...

Orders of the Day: Clause 14 — Conditions of licences for treatment (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: We are all seriously passionate about getting the matter right. We want to get it right because the welfare of the child is crucial to us all. However, the research has been repeated time and again, and I cannot understand why the Committee is so unprepared to hear what MacCallum and Golombok are saying. The conclusions of their research, "Children raised in fatherless families from infancy:...

Orders of the Day: Clause 14 — Conditions of licences for treatment (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Overcrowded Accommodation (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: What assessment she has made of the capacity of the private rented sector to contribute to a reduction in the number of families in overcrowded accommodation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Overcrowded Accommodation (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: I am very pleased to hear my right hon. Friend's response. Will she outline the review of the private rented sector that Julie Rugg is undertaking and will she also tell the House when we will receive information on how she sees larger houses being utilised to manage overcrowding?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: Does my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State accept that it is time that the Cabinet met outside London? I suggest that their first such meeting should be held in Stockton-on-Tees. That would give Cabinet members the opportunity to listen to, and gain experience from, local people, and to hear about the wide range of delivery of Government service.

North East Ambulance Service (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: Does my hon. Friend accept that Cleveland police has offered greater space to the ambulance service should it require it. Frankly, I do not think that the greater space has been considered.

North East Ambulance Service (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: I wish to put on record the point that if staff from the Tees are moved to the Tyne, they will be asked to increase their day by at least two hours, without pay. That is a totally unacceptable request.

North East Ambulance Service (20 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: On the point of local knowledge, will my hon. Friend accept that, to date, the consultation with users and staff has been abysmal, and that the consultation with the local authority scrutiny committees has been lamentable? I have asked a series of questions about the problems that we would face on Teesside should the move take place, and they have not been answered. My hon. Friend is...

Written Answers — Home Department: Crime: Schools (15 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent steps she has taken to reduce crime in and around schools in (a) England and (b) Stockton.

Orders of the Day: Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (12 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: The Bill is required. It is almost 20 years since the 1990 Act. The Bill ensures that the regulatory framework for assisted conception is brought up to date and its purpose clarified. The Bill's second function is to maintain public confidence. The subject of embryo research is complex and highly emotive and it is crucial that the public are kept on board. I speak as a female who is infertile...

Orders of the Day: Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (12 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: My hon. Friend is absolutely correct, and of course I agree. However, I should take my hon. Friend and the House a stage further and say that the regulatory licensing could seriously improve. This House and our Ministers should insist that the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence regulations be fully implemented. In 2004, we had a commitment that three full cycles of in vitro...

Orders of the Day: Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (12 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism Bill: Schedule 1 (6 May 2008)

Dari Taylor: The hon. Gentleman speaks a language that we all understand, of wanting—in fact, needing—to see compelling evidence. Would he accept a statement that is made in a lot of the literature on terrorism, that radicalisation has no visible progression? That makes it very difficult for us to see where it is, how it is developing and where it will act. Does he acknowledge that that is a problem...
