Business of the House (26 Apr 2007)

Betty Williams: Leaving aside a particular case on which I have written to you, Mr. Speaker, and on which you have given me advice to refer the matter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, may I ask my right hon.

Orders of the Day: Clause 35 — Supply of information by rent officers (9 Jan 2007)

Betty Williams: As a long-time supporter of the campaign to end the single room rent—the SRR—restriction on housing benefit for young people, it would be an understatement if I did not express my disappointment that the Government did not grasp the opportunity to abolish it completely. In 2000 the Welsh Affairs Committee, of which my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff, North (Julie Morgan) and I were...

Orders of the Day: Clause 35 — Supply of information by rent officers (9 Jan 2007)

Betty Williams: Indeed. Without going into great detail, we took evidence from many people. In Bangor in my constituency, we were told that SRR was set at £35 a week, whereas the price charged for a one-bedroom flat was between £58 and £75 a week. Such evidence was the basis for our conclusion. The Bill offered a unique opportunity to do away with the discriminatory restriction placed on young people...

Later, while some of us were enjoying ourselves elsewhere, they worked extremely hard to compile the draft...

Children with Disabilities (12 Dec 2006)

Betty Williams: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention and totally agree with her. When the doctor came to our house, we had the impression that he was just ticking boxes on a form. My son had just had an operation and had plaster casts up to his knees on both legs. The doctor asked, "Does he wander away from home, Mrs. Williams?" I am not a violent person, but at that moment I could have slapped that...
