Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Older People (23 Jun 1999)

Claire Ward: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. Is he aware that Watford is one of the pilot projects and that there has been much success in setting up new services for older people and consulting them about what services they would like? Will he provide information to the House on how we can ensure that those projects and the benefits from them are available in the longer term to many more older people?

Eurostar Services (19 May 1999)

Claire Ward: As someone who much appreciates the opportunity to travel on Eurostar at any time, I am particularly enthused by the prospect that I can get on the service at Watford and end up in Paris three and a half hours later. The Select Committee has correctly identified that Watford is well placed to be an integrated transport hub. Indeed, the town is already on its way to becoming that. For...

Eurostar Services (19 May 1999)

Claire Ward: Hear, hear.

Claire Ward: If he will make a statement on the funding for the next three financial years of the British Council. [83514]

Oral Answers to Questions: British Council (18 May 1999)

Claire Ward: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. Does he agree that the British Council and the BBC World Service play an important part in representing Britain abroad and thus require stable and adequate funding for long-term planning? Is he also aware that, because the BBC World Service needs to be a quality service, it requires additional funding? Will he give an assurance that he will look into...

Oral Answers to Questions — Millennium Experience: Millennium Dome (Medical Facilities) (17 May 1999)

Claire Ward: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. What will be the ratio of medical staff to visitors? Does she share my concern that, because of the number of people attending the dome, there may be serious medical problems if many of them require medical assistance? Will she assure the House that she will be keeping the facilities under careful check?

Opposition Day: Industry and Employment (29 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day: Industry and Employment (29 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: With his reference to a level playing field, is the hon. Gentleman suggesting that there should be tax harmonisation across Europe?

Opposition Day: Industry and Employment (29 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: The hon. Gentleman mentioned golden eggs. Has he perhaps forgotten that the previous Government introduced the fuel duty escalator?

Claire Ward: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day: Road Haulage Industry (21 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day: Road Haulage Industry (21 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: The hon. Gentleman said that some hauliers are requesting information on how to register their trucks abroad. However, he did not say that, when they receive that information, they realise that, when all the costs are taken into account, the United Kingdom is comparatively much more competitive than other European countries. Hauliers may be requesting that information, but, once they receive...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: EU Enlargement (20 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: What progress is being made on the negotiations for the enlargement of the European Union. [79945]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: EU Enlargement (20 Apr 1999)

Claire Ward: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. Does she agree that the discussions in June on the size of the Commission and the voting weight of members must seriously deal with the prospect not of six new members, but of an even larger European Union? Does she agree that a cumbersome and bureaucratic Commission will do nothing to further partnership for all EU members?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Football (Disabled Supporters) (29 Mar 1999)

Claire Ward: Does my hon. Friend agree that some clubs have made considerable progress in opening up their grounds and making football accessible particularly to the disabled, but also to families and children? Does he also agree that the decision by Chelsea football club to keep open the job for Graham Rix after his conviction shows cynical disregard for the views of the family of the victim, and is a...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (10 Mar 1999)

Claire Ward: I, too, congratulate my right hon. Friend the Chancellor on an outstanding Budget, which will, without any doubt, introduce many measures that will benefit my constituents. That is in stark contrast to what we had from the previous Government. A Conservative Member referred earlier to some strange golden legacy. I do not remember a golden legacy when the Labour party came into office. Our...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (10 Mar 1999)

Claire Ward: I shall not give way because of the 10-minute limit on speeches. This is a positive Budget for all my constituents and for businesses that will gain from the tax changes and from the incentives to encourage employees by means of the new grant for information technology. There is no doubt that information technology and education are the way forward for Britain, not low incomes and poverty...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: After-school Clubs (1 Mar 1999)

Claire Ward: I am sure that my hon. Friend agrees that football and rugby clubs can play an important role in after-school clubs. What is he doing to ensure that such activities are promoted among football and rugby clubs? Will he make sure that clubs already undertaking those activities are recognised as leading the way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Dec 1998)

Claire Ward: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, in the first decade of the new millennium, for the first time in our history, the over-60s will begin to outnumber the under-18s? Does he agree that that will require a new policy approach to matters such as health, welfare, housing and work? Does he welcome the debate of the age campaign, which is holding an exhibition in the Upper Waiting Hall of the...
