Rail Fare Increases (South-East) (20 Jan 2009)

Gregory Barker: I am extremely grateful for this debate on rail fare increases in the south-east, because it gives me the chance to put before the House an issue of real concern to my constituents, which is causing a great deal of anger among train passengers in my part of Sussex. My constituents in Bexhill and Battle are particularly appalled at the astronomical train fare hikes being imposed by...

Rail Fare Increases (South-East) (20 Jan 2009)

Gregory Barker: My right hon. Friend makes an excellent point about short-term rip-offs. Unfortunately, the combination that we have now is the worst of both worlds, as I shall explain a little later in my remarks. There is a total lack of long-term strategy and, as a result, short-term fare hikes are being made because of the failure to invest for the long term. Why have these huge national price increases...

Rail Fare Increases (South-East) (20 Jan 2009)

Gregory Barker: I am disappointed. I thought that the hon. Member for Hastings and Rye (Michael Jabez Foster) might have been here, given his constituency's significant interest in the debate. However, we know that Amber Rudd, who we hope will be his successor, is campaigning hard on these issues; I know that she will make the voice of Hastings heard on this issue. Can the Minister at least give the House...

Rail Fare Increases (South-East) (20 Jan 2009)

Energy and Climate Change: Carbon Dioxide Emissions (22 Jan 2009)

Gregory Barker: While our European competitors such as Germany are rolling out far larger energy-efficiency programmes, progress here is still too slow. Indeed, the Government have now cancelled the launch of their heat and energy-saving consultation for the second time. Given the sad failure to transform the energy-efficiency of our housing stock over the last decade, may I invite the Secretary of State to...

Equitable Life (27 Jan 2009)

Gregory Barker: What angers my constituents in particular is that the payment of compensation, as was made clear by the Committee, is not a matter of charity but a requirement of justice to redress a wrong, yet the Government have concluded that compensation will be paid on a means-tested basis. That is their whole remit. Can the hon. Gentleman think of any other case where justice has been dispensed on a...

Equitable Life (27 Jan 2009)

Gregory Barker: I made exactly that point earlier. My hon. Friend is very knowledgeable about these matters, so can he think of a similar case in recent history, whereby a matter of injustice or maladministration was resolved by a means test rather than in relation to the scale of the losses of those with a grievance?
