Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General: Conviction Rates (Nottingham) (25 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Those are improving figures; congratulations to all involved.

In that context, will my hon. and learned Friend look at the case about which I have just written to her concerning a constituent in Edwinstowe who has had that very experience?

Opposition Day — [20th Allotted Day — First Part]: Foot and Mouth/Bluetongue (17 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: In his remarks at the start of the debate, the hon. Member for South-East Cambridgeshire (Mr. Paice) was, at best, rather dismissive of the £12.5 million package and the other measures that have been put in place. He implied that the Opposition would offer more in the way of compensation, but he was silent when I asked him directly who they intended would pay for it, and how much would be...

Opposition Day — [20th Allotted Day — First Part]: Foot and Mouth/Bluetongue (17 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I always listen carefully to the hon. Gentleman, because he commands great respect in the House on farming issues. He has talked about the Government paying the price and about the compensation that they have announced. In fairness, he has suggested that it should be used in alternative ways. Is he suggesting that there should be a greater compensation scheme, and, if so, to what amount and...

Midlands Engineering Industries Redeployment Group (16 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I join my hon. Friend in commending the work of MEIRG. It is an excellent, professional organisation. My hon. Friend has not mentioned the work that it does in schools to persuade students that engineering is a good profession. The paradox is that European funding is available, but unless the East Midlands Development Agency and Advantage West Midlands make decisions quickly, the project will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Coal Mining (11 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: The Minister might be aware that there has been discussion in the coal forum about an indicative figure for coal—a target figure for domestic coal of, say, 20 million tonnes per annum, split roughly between deep-mine coal and open-cast coal. What is his view on that? Does he support it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Pre-Budget Report and Comprehensive Spending Review (9 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Chancellor confirm that he can afford free health checks, better health and a better future for the many by resisting the temptation to go back to the past by offering unsustainable tax thresholds for inheritance tax for the very few?

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Foot and Mouth/Bluetongue (8 Oct 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I welcome the Secretary of State's comments about involving farmers and stakeholders in wider discussions about biosecurity and about the need to look at insurance-based risk policies. I congratulate him particularly on learning the lessons from the 2001 outbreak, by declining to close the countryside to visitors, because it is the value of people using our footpaths, pubs, shops, restaurants...

Paddy Tipping: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many fatal accidents where a medical condition was a contributory factor were recorded in each of the last five years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Flooding (24 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: In Nottinghamshire, much of the flooding was caused by localised torrential rainfall, which simply overran the surface water systems. The Secretary of State has already pointed out the diffuse responsibilities involved. May I press him to take early decisions about a lead agency and, in the review, to take account of new solutions such as sustainable urban drainage systems—SUDS—and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Patient Choice (24 Jul 2007)

[John Cummings in the Chair] — HMRC Offices (East Midlands) (18 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: My hon. Friend spoke movingly about the effects on staff at Burton. Does she agree that similar considerations apply to Mansfield? People will have to move from Mansfield to Nottingham and then deal with the consequences for their families. More importantly, should we not be focusing on customers—people who want tax advice—and is there not a real case to keep local offices open, so that...
