Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Credits (12 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Have not tax credits proved a valuable way of taking families, and particularly children, out of poverty? Will they not prove to be more effective than, say, offering £20 a week for couples to get married and stay married?

Flood Prevention and Defence (11 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Villages in the Trent valley have been badly hit—small, rural communities. Is it not wrong that big urban areas should score on the point system while small local communities lose out? Ought we not to change the criteria for allocation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Flooding (England) (9 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Wherever flooding occurs, it disrupts lives and homes. Will the Secretary of State particularly consider rural communities such as Lowdham, Woodborough and Lambley in Nottinghamshire to ensure not only that they get their fair share of resources for the immediate clear-up but that, in the longer term, they are given priority when it comes to allocating resources for flood defence measures?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Nuclear Power (5 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Replacement nuclear power will require considerable investment over a long period of time. Does the Secretary of State recognise that that investment will not be forthcoming if nuclear power is seen as a last resort? Should not we encourage investment by having a high carbon price that is sustainable through a new, revised and robust European emissions trading scheme?

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Floods (England) (2 Jul 2007)

Paddy Tipping: When the present crisis is over, will my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State look at how resources are allocated to rural areas? Villages in Nottinghamshire, such as Lowdham, Lambley and Woodborough, have been badly flooded, but on the present cost-benefit analysis look unlikely ever to receive any protection. Should not people be safe and secure in both urban and rural areas?

[Mr. Eric Illsley in the Chair] — Social Mobility (26 Jun 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I begin by congratulating my right hon. Friend the Member for Darlington (Mr. Milburn) on his robust speech, which was designed to provoke and to bring about change and action. I have had the benefit of reading the speeches that he has been making for a couple of years now, including the Deborah Leon memorial lecture of November 2003 and last month's 2020 vision for British Government...

Points of Order (18 Jun 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. You will recall that my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House gave an undertaking that he would raise the matter with colleagues in the Ministry of Justice. He, in fact, did so, and he is concerned about the situation described by my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton, North (Ms Keeble). He intends to pursue the matter further with...

Paddy Tipping: I beg to move, That the Chairman do now report to the House that the Committee recommends that the Parliament (Joint Departments) Bill [Lords] ought to be read a Second time. I welcome you to the Chair, Mr. Weir, and congratulate you on taking forward our discussions on a rather unusual parliamentary procedure. This is only the second routine Bill that has been the subject of a Second...

Public Bill Committee: Parliament (Joint Departments) Bill (7 Jun 2007)

Paddy Tipping: Let me reply very briefly. I should like to thank all the Members who have spoken in support of the Bill. I also thank the Administration Committee for its very useful report, and its hard work, diligence and enthusiasm. As I say, the Commission will seek to respond before the recess. I should also like to thank the staff of PICT; this has been a period of great change for them. As my hon....

Business of the House: Whitsun Adjournment (24 May 2007)

Paddy Tipping: May I begin by reinforcing the point that the hon. Member for North-West Cambridgeshire (Mr. Vara) made about Lord David Renton? He had a distinguished career, both in this House and the other place, and that was preceded by a fine career at the Bar. He was a man who had bottom, as Denis Healey would say. He had interests outside this place, and he was extremely interested in cricket; that...

Business of the House: Whitsun Adjournment (24 May 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I am glad the hon. Gentleman has reminded me that the Post Office is losing £4 million a week. There are 4 million fewer customers a week than there were this time last year. The hon. Gentleman is right to point out that there will be post offices that do very little business. I believe that the 100 least used post offices have fewer than 30 customers a week—four or five a day at best....

Business of the House: Whitsun Adjournment (24 May 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I had the keys. I could leave when I wanted to. What the hon. Member for West Chelmsford said about the prison population was exactly right, and he was right to quote the Prime Minister's words "Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime". The mentoring scheme that he described really is important. The Government recognise the importance of not just working with prisoners in prison, but...

Business of the House: Whitsun Adjournment (24 May 2007)

Paddy Tipping: I thought that I had just given that commitment. Let me just say that there are different forces working in Europe and it is important to be at the heart of Europe to try and influence those discussions so that we get an outcome that is in the best interest of the UK people. My hon. Friend the Member for Pendle talked not only about the Ministry of Justice, but about reorganisation and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Early-day Motions (23 Apr 2007)

Paddy Tipping: My right hon. Friend the Leader of the House—who, unfortunately, is abroad today—is aware of both possible advantages and possible problems associated with e-tabling of and signatures to early-day motions. The Procedure Committee is examining the matter, and I understand that it is due to consider a report in the near future. The Government will pay close attention to any recommendations...
