Results 13641–13660 of 13740 for speaker:Rosie Winterton

Business of the House (13 Apr 2000)

Rosie Winterton: Will my right hon. Friend find time for the House to debate whether legislation is now necessary to make kerb crawling an arrestable offence? There are particular areas in my constituency where residents feel extremely threatened by the activities of kerb crawlers and are understandably worried about the safety of their children. Local police have made it clear to me that a change in the law...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Pensioner Incomes (6 Apr 2000)

Rosie Winterton: What estimate he has made of the impact which changes in savings limits will have on pensioner incomes. [116601]

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Pensioner Incomes (6 Apr 2000)

Rosie Winterton: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his changes have been widely welcomed in Yorkshire and Humberside? Thousands of pensioners will benefit from them. That is in stark contrast with the treatment of pensioners when the Tory party was in power. Will he assure me that the longer-term review that he announced will have at its heart a commitment to ensuring that pensioners who have saved a little...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Lottery Funding (27 Mar 2000)

Rosie Winterton: Will my right hon. Friend consider making representations to the distribution body about allocating funds to pigeon fanciers in my constituency? They cannot currently benefit from national lottery money because pigeon fancying is not considered a sport. Were my constituents to keep clay pigeons and shoot them, they would be eligible for the money. Will my right hon. Friend take action to show...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Jobseekers (Internet) (23 Mar 2000)

Rosie Winterton: As my right hon. Friend said, it is extremely important that access to the internet should be made as easy as possible. I hope that she will agree that that applies particularly to areas where there have long been high rates of unemployment. She mentioned various outlets where internet access could be found, but is there not also a role for schools—particularly schools that are applying...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2000)

Rosie Winterton: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in the debate. It is a Budget that will be welcomed in my constituency and in south Yorkshire not only because of the extra money that it puts into health and education, but because of the emphasis on full employment—what welcome words they are for my constituency—and on tackling social exclusion. One of the major challenges that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asylum Statistics (13 Mar 2000)

Rosie Winterton: My right hon. Friend has taken welcome action to relieve pressure on communities in Kent and London from those seeking asylum, but will he ensure that local authorities outside London receive information and advice as quickly as possible about the extra assistance that may be available to them, so that they can plan ahead carefully to receive asylum seekers?

Orders of the Day — Regulation of Investigatory Powers Bill (6 Mar 2000)

Rosie Winterton: My hon. Friend referred to a certain consensus of support in the House for the proposals. Is he also aware that the organisation Justice, which has suggested some changes to the Bill, broadly welcomes the provisions overall? The organisation is unhappy with the present legislative framework, or lack thereof, and strongly believes that the Human Rights Act 1998 should be incorporated in this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Mar 2000)

Rosie Winterton: I welcome the steps taken this week to boost volunteering, but will my right hon. Friend accept that, particularly in less prosperous areas such as South Yorkshire, the networks set up to support volunteering can be successful only if they are properly funded? Will he also assure me that employers will be encouraged to allow staff to do voluntary work without it affecting their pay or prospects?

Business of the House (17 Feb 2000)

Rosie Winterton: Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on the Government's announcement this week for clear targets to reduce car crime and burglary? The targets have been very much welcomed in my constituency because the audit carried out by the local police and local authority has identified those two problems as being of particular concern to my constituents. Would not such a debate provide an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: National Bus Company (Pensions) (8 Feb 2000)

Rosie Winterton: If he will make a statement on the latest position regarding the bus employees' superannuation trust scheme and the National Bus Company pension fund scheme. [107316]

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: National Bus Company (Pensions) (8 Feb 2000)

Rosie Winterton: I thank my hon. Friend for his reply, and the Government for taking steps to right the injustice that the previous Tory Administration inflicted on NBC pensioners. The initial payment is welcome, but those pensioners are again at the mercy of lawyers, who despite having all the evidence, have failed to return to the High Court to get the final go-ahead for paying pensioners what they are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Waiting Lists (Consultants) (1 Feb 2000)

Rosie Winterton: What can be done to overcome the problem of GPs referring patients constantly to one particular consultant, even though that consultant may have a longer waiting time than others within the same department? How can we ensure that patients have proper access to all the information about the waiting times and waiting lists of every consultant within a department, so that they can make an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Wheel Clamping (17 Jan 2000)

Rosie Winterton: What steps he is taking to regulate the activities of private wheel-clamping companies. [103970]

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Wheel Clamping (17 Jan 2000)

Rosie Winterton: As I am sure my right hon. Friend will be aware, his answer will delight thousands of motorists who have been the victims of the notorious clamp-and-deliver tactics of unscrupulous cowboy companies. Will he assure me, however, that he will consult not only the wheel-clamping industry, but motoring organisations, the police and local authorities to ensure that any regulation is strong enough...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Jan 2000)

Rosie Winterton: As my right hon. Friend will be aware, child poverty trebled under the previous Government. Is he also aware that the Child Poverty Action Group estimates that, within two years, 800,000 children will be lifted out of poverty as a result of this Government's initiatives? However, the Child Poverty Action Group warns that more may still need to be done to abolish child poverty altogether...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Buses (Yorkshire and Humberside) (11 Jan 2000)

Rosie Winterton: What steps he is taking to improve the quality of bus services in Yorkshire and Humberside area. [103251]

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Buses (Yorkshire and Humberside) (11 Jan 2000)

Rosie Winterton: I welcome the Bill, but I am sure that my right hon. Friend is aware that people in rural areas can feel physically isolated and socially excluded without access to good-quality bus services. The 1,800 new rural services have provided a lifeline to many of those people, but how many of those services are in the Yorkshire and Humberside area? What further action might be taken to improve rural...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill (20 Dec 1999)

Rosie Winterton: I am grateful to have an opportunity to speak, and glad to follow the hon. Member for Vale of York (Miss McIntosh), with whom I work on the RAC public policy committee. I do that in a voluntary capacity. This is a landmark Bill. As my hon. Friend the Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Mrs. Dunwoody) said, it is the first major transport Bill for 30 years. It will put right years of Tory neglect...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill (20 Dec 1999)

Rosie Winterton: I agree, although it was surprising to hear any proposals from the Conservatives: on the whole, they merely attacked ours without making any constructive ones of their own. The Bill contains radical forms of financing, including public-private partnership. Many comments were made about that by Government and Opposition Members and I am sure that the discussions will continue in Committee....
