Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements (7 Apr 2010)

Derek Wyatt: It is alarming, although not surprising, that it took me a search of the internet to discover exactly what amendments had been tabled, rather than finding out through the Vote Office. I have raised my confusion about the Bill with the Secretary of State privately. I own the e-mail system that is predominantly used by my family-I sign it off. If one of member of my family was illegally file...

Business of the House: Digital Economy Bill [ Lords] (6 Apr 2010)

Derek Wyatt: It is a pleasure to follow my great friend, the hon. Member for Bath (Mr. Foster). Judging by what Opposition Front-Benchers said, I thought for one moment that he was going to be the MP for Bath and Munster, but perhaps not. I pay great thanks to the Under-Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Mr. Timms), who is on the...

Business of the House: Digital Economy Bill [ Lords] (6 Apr 2010)

Derek Wyatt: No, not yet. In January this year, Google had a problem in China, and it forgot to think about where it would take its problem. It decided then that it did not need to talk to the State Department in Washington, but it certainly is now, and the one good thing about Google's demise in China was a brilliant speech by Hillary Clinton about what the internet is and what it stands for. Her vision...

Business of the House: Digital Economy Bill [ Lords] (6 Apr 2010)

Derek Wyatt: One problem with the hon. Gentleman's proposal is that many big libraries photograph original photos out of copyright in order to claim a new copyright. Unfortunately, his suggestion would only increase such practice; it would not represent a solution.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Zimbabwe (6 Apr 2010)

Derek Wyatt: Will the Minister bring me up to speed on the extent to which the Financial Services Authority or his own Department have managed to determine the location of Mr. Mugabe's laundered money?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Participation in Sport (1 Mar 2010)

Derek Wyatt: What assessment he has made of his Department's progress in increasing the level of participation in sport since 1997.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Participation in Sport (1 Mar 2010)

Derek Wyatt: I thank the Secretary of State for those figures, which are impressive. However, does he think that we would have made even more progress if we had had a separate Department for sport and health?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Feb 2010)

Derek Wyatt: Kensley Larrier was convicted of rape in 2005, based on DNA held on the national database. Is it not the case that if storage were restricted to three years, he would be walking free?

BBC: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

BBC: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: Will the Minister tell us why there has been such a delay in implementing the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003?

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: I wish that it was paid for by the taxpayer.

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: May I congratulate the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Mr. Burstow) on prompting the stimulating discussion that we will have in the next 90 minutes? I should like to mention a little bit of history. In 1995, Netscape created a web presence that enabled people not only to read straight e-mails, as we had in those days, but to carry pictures and, inevitably, video. In the first internet...

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: As I have said, that case is a matter for the Audit Commission, and I am amazed that it has been allowed. Perhaps questions should be asked about that in another place in due course. My instincts are that newspapers have forgotten why they are there. My sense is that they should have a lesser presence on the weekly pages, but go to the net as fast as possible. They should be local social...

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: Can the hon. Gentleman enlighten us as to whether the accounts were then passed by the Audit Commission? Has he been in conversation or correspondence with the commission about that?

[Christopher Fraser in the Chair] — China (13 Jan 2010)

Derek Wyatt: I congratulate the hon. Member for Banbury (Tony Baldry) on introducing what is yet another debate about China. It always grieves me that these debates have to be in Westminster Hall. Yesterday we had a debate about the Goldstone report-a really critical debate about Palestine. Where was it? It was in Westminster Hall. There were so many hon. Members here that not everyone could be called to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Planning Policy Guidance (27 Oct 2009)

Derek Wyatt: What recent changes have been made by his Department to planning policy guidance affecting rural areas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Planning Policy Guidance (27 Oct 2009)

Derek Wyatt: May I bring to my hon. Friend's attention the fact that Kent science park has recently been allowed to extend on to green land? That was done with his Department's knowledge and before the transport analysis had been done in respect of exit 5 of the M2. Will his Department do some joined-up thinking, so that transport is taken into consideration before more is done on green land?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Broadcasting Bill (20 Jul 2009)

Derek Wyatt: What plans he has for pre-legislative scrutiny of the broadcasting Bill.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Broadcasting Bill (20 Jul 2009)

Derek Wyatt: I thank the Secretary of State for that answer, and I welcome him to his new position. I am sorry that that Bill will not be in the pre-legislative programme, because if it were there would have been something for us to do in October and November before the Queen's Speech. May I take it as read, however, that it will definitely be in the Queen's Speech?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Digital Britain (16 Jun 2009)

Derek Wyatt: I welcome our support for regional and local news, but my question is about mathematics. As I understand it, 95 per cent. of the nation has switched over to digital. Given the £600 million in the initial digital switchover fund, £560 million could be unspent. How much of that does my right hon. Friend intend to use for the measures that he announced today?
