[Robert Key in the Chair] — World Food Programme (21 May 2009)

John Barrett: When my right hon. Friend was making his opening speech, I was scoring out paragraphs in mine because he was pre-empting them, and he has just done that again, but I will read it anyway.

[John Bercow in the Chair] (19 May 2009)

Equitable Life Report (Government Response) (19 May 2009)

John Barrett: Does the right hon. Gentleman understand the anger of many of my constituents who have lost so much with Equitable Life about the fact that the Government have gone the extra mile for those who have lost money in the Icelandic banks or the nationalised banks, but they have not given the same treatment to those who have lost often greater amounts through Equitable Life?

[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — Children and HIV/AIDS (Developing Countries) (7 May 2009)

John Barrett: The hon. Gentleman clarified the point I was about to make: a reduced staffing level, when the budget is increasing, produces a unique problem, because without outsourcing DFID's functions, it will not be as effective as it would otherwise be.

[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — Children and HIV/AIDS (Developing Countries) (7 May 2009)

John Barrett: It is often the individual stories that stick in our memories. Although we speak about millions of children suffering, detailed accounts, such as that given by the hon.
