Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Today’s Business of the House (26 Mar 2015)

Shaun Woodward: The office of Speaker in this House is the guardian of fairness. Will the right hon. Gentleman explain how the reputation of Parliament and the fairness of this House is enhanced by his not sharing even at the beginning of this week his intention to bring about this debate today? Across the country, people look at Parliament, whose reputation has not been enhanced by many of the actions taken...

Business of the House: Hallett Review (17 Jul 2014)

Shaun Woodward: I, too, thank the right hon. Lady for advance sight of the report, and join her in remembering not only the victims of the Hyde Park bombing, but all the people to whom the right hon. Member for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson) referred who lost their lives in the course of the troubles. I also thank Lady Justice Hallett for a very comprehensive report. As a former Secretary of State, I accept...

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: I am very grateful because the right hon. Gentleman gives me the chance to get on the record the fact that I deeply regret that the Secretary of State did not deal with the issue appropriately raised by the hon. Member for North Down (Lady Hermon). It is absolutely essential to continue the process in a bipartisan way. I think the right hon. Gentleman would also wish to raise this concern....

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: I wish to associate myself with the remarks made by all hon. Members about those who lost their lives in the Hyde park and Regent park bombings. They were terrible crimes on the day they were committed, and some decades later they remain terrible crimes. It is always difficult to follow Members from Northern Ireland because they speak from such extraordinary personal experience and from...

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: Dare I say that there is a fashion when former Secretaries of State, as it were, and sometimes even serving Ministers, can sometimes hide behind forms of words? I am not suggesting that to the hon. Lady for a moment. I am not aware that we discussed the words “Operation Rapid”, but it is more than possible that pieces of paper will be found on which that phrase will appear. I say simply...

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: It is always dangerous to extrapolate from one person’s words and somebody else’s conclusion. One talks about “an interest”, but the hon. Lady’s refers to it as a “pressure”. All I can say to her is that, if there were questions from the Northern Ireland Office, as far as I am concerned, they could only ever be questions about facts. They could not in any way be about trying to...

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 Mar 2014)

Shaun Woodward: Not for one moment. The hon. Member for Aldershot was kind and generous enough to say that when I was Secretary of State I always tried to deal with all these issues with impartiality. That does not mean to say that I do not think it is quite proper for right hon. and hon. Members eloquently to make cases on behalf of those they wish to represent. Whatever view Members may have, the House...
