[Mr. Mike Hancock in the Chair] — Poppy Crops (Afghanistan) (11 Jul 2007)

John Barrett: That point is very well made. I feel that I am eating into the time that I have for my speech, so I shall not respond in detail, but the points that hon. Gentlemen have raised are all well made. The issue is complicated, and hon. Members have helped this morning to open up questions that I hope the Minister will answer. Another crucial issue to consider before attending to any proposals to...

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Occupied Palestinian Territories (5 Jul 2007)

John Barrett: The biggest problem in relation to a two-state solution is the violation of the property rights of the Palestinians in the west bank. To have lost one's land and then be told, "Let's discuss potential compensation," is similar to how it would be for the Minister if someone took his house from him, against his will, and then said, "Let's discuss a price." Does he agree that the settlements on...

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Occupied Palestinian Territories (5 Jul 2007)

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Occupied Palestinian Territories (5 Jul 2007)

John Barrett: The right hon. Gentleman makes an important point. The process is long drawn out. It has taken many years to get to the present stage, and clearly it will be many years before anything like a solution is found, but steps along the way—even small steps—are important. In the end, if development assistance to the occupied territories becomes a thing of the past—that is what we all...

deferred division: Child Maintenance and Other Payments Bill (4 Jul 2007)

John Barrett: This is a very serious debate. Many people have waited far too long to discover what is to replace the Child Support Agency. We have heard today about individual and more general cases involving the CSA from every Member who has spoken today—from Members in all parts of the House. We all agree that the reduction of child poverty is a key issue, but even in relatively affluent constituencies...

[Mr. Eric Illsley in the Chair] — Social Mobility (26 Jun 2007)

John Barrett: An issue that the right hon. Member for Darlington touched on was access to education. When my hon. Friend discusses the importance of education, will he touch on the barrier that high tuition fees present to those who are from less affluent backgrounds?

[Mr. Eric Illsley in the Chair] — Social Mobility (26 Jun 2007)

John Barrett: I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman will deal later with the fact that education is the key. It is the single most important factor in determining income later in life, but income later in life is probably also the most important factor in determining the education of the children of high earners.
