Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Convergence Funding (29 Nov 2006)

Betty Williams: Does my hon. Friend agree that the wise investment of the objective 1 funding in Wales has secured the future protection of both traditional and modern, 21st-century industries?

Welfare Reform Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Climate Change (12 Oct 2006)

Betty Williams: I want to latch on to the phrase that my right hon. Friend used about energy efficiency. I also raised this matter in business questions this morning. I am sure that he will have noticed how warm it is in the Palace of Westminster this week. Will he have urgent discussions with the House authorities on this? We should practise what we preach and do our bit here in the House of Commons.

Business of the House (12 Oct 2006)

Betty Williams: My right hon. Friend will have noticed this week how warm it is in the Palace of Westminster.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2006)

Betty Williams: My right hon. Friend will be aware of the strength of feeling on both sides of the House about climate change. I have written to him recently on behalf of many constituents to request the introduction of a climate change Bill. Am I likely to be satisfied and happy with the reply when I receive it from my right hon. Friend?

Orders of the Day: Adjournment (Summer Recess) (25 Jul 2006)

Betty Williams: Although health is a devolved issue in Wales, does my hon. Friend accept that such behaviour happens throughout the United Kingdom? What health trusts and local health boards call a consultation exercise is usually not that, and the scaremongering tactics by the press and others create fear in people's hearts. Can we not have proper consultation exercises, which ask the right questions?

Orders of the Day: Emergency Workers (Obstruction) Bill (14 Jul 2006)

Betty Williams: My hon. Friend has been most generous in giving way. Like other hon. Members, she has highlighted the seriousness of the situation and the need for this important Bill. However, does she agree that the examples that we have heard tend to under-represent the seriousness of the position? My hon. Friend the Member for Stourbridge (Lynda Waltho) spoke about how busy ambulance workers are, going...

Orders of the Day: Emergency Workers (Obstruction) Bill (14 Jul 2006)

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Post Offices (5 Jul 2006)

Betty Williams: Does my right hon. Friend share my concern that in some instances post offices close because the postholder is retiring and the property is no longer available? Will he discuss with his colleagues in the Department of Trade and Industry whether, when it is difficult to find a building to carry on a post office service, it would be possible to provide a mobile service so that our constituents...

Orders of the Day: Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Bill [ Lords] (19 Jun 2006)

Betty Williams: I am not sure whether my right hon. Friend is going to elaborate, but will she explain the rationale behind the need for one list for people working with children and a separate list for people working with vulnerable adults? I am not clear why we need two lists. It may be that I ought to declare an interest; I did not check beforehand. I have a 33-year-old son who has severe learning...

Orders of the Day: Commissioner for Older People (Wales) Bill [Lords] (15 Jun 2006)

Betty Williams: My right hon. Friend may be aware that the UK charity Counsel and Care has expressed concern that the Government's social exclusion agenda fails to address the needs of the elderly. I understand what the commissioner's role will be, as far as we know it before we debate it today, but will my right hon. Friend ensure that the role specifically includes assessing the needs of the elderly and...

Betty Williams: What more does my right hon. Friend think can be done by the UN, and what progress can be made in taking the matter to the International Criminal Court?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Agriculture (7 Jun 2006)

Betty Williams: Does my hon. Friend agree that the lifting of the beef exports ban will bring enormous benefits to Welsh farmers? Will he take it from me, as a Member of Parliament brought up on a Welsh smallholding many years ago, that Welsh beef is the best and will be a good ambassador for Wales?

Orders of the Day: New Clause 4 — Education of children with special educational needs in mainstream schools (24 May 2006)

Betty Williams: Does my hon. Friend agree that quite a number of the exclusions from schools and LEAs that involve pupils with special educational needs are caused by the delay in statementing those children? If the statement is not made at an early stage, all the members of staff will not be aware of that child's needs. That leads to more serious behaviour problems if it is not addressed very early in that...

Betty Williams: As my right hon. Friend will know, the only way to travel to and from the island of St. Helena is by sea. [ Interruption. ]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 May 2006)

Betty Williams: At a recent Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference in Malta, delegates from St. Helena expressed their gratitude for UK investment, which will enable them to open an airport by 2010, but there are infrastructure problems involving water, electricity and the health network. Is my right hon. Friend aware of any plans by the international community to help the residents of that remote...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Community Support Officers (3 May 2006)

Betty Williams: I shall try to stick to the question that was asked, Mr. Speaker. Is my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State aware of the excellent crime detection figures in the North Wales police area, especially in the western and central divisions covering my constituency? Will he join me in congratulating North Wales police on such excellent results? Does he agree that they are a direct result of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Alcohol-related Crime (22 Mar 2006)

Betty Williams: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Does he agree that the press speculation following the passing of the Licensing Act 2003 has proved incorrect? Indeed, the figures from North Wales police show a significant drop in alcohol-related crime. Is that the general pattern throughout Wales? Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating all the divisions of North Wales police on...
