Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Acute Beds (26 Jun 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: Is the Minister aware that, of the 366 beds in the Royal Surrey county hospital, 41 are occupied by long-stay care patients who should be going on to nursing care? Does the Minister have any plans to increase the funding for social services to provide adequate care? Does she have any plans to lift the threats to community hospitals in Surrey?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (4 Jul 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to make my maiden speech today. I am conscious of the great honour that my constituents conferred on me in voting for me to be their Member. Some Members may have been slightly surprised at the result at Guildford, but it is important to remember that the people of Guildford are a thoughtful bunch with a wide range of backgrounds and...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Waste Disposal (15 Oct 2001)

Student Finance (25 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is rather more realistic to promise improvements in public services and help for students by accepting that taxes may have to rise, than by pretending that they will be cut?

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: I want to talk about roads and traffic, and the general mayhem in Surrey. The hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling) made a wide-ranging speech covering many issues affecting the south-east, but we need to think much harder about what should be done in Surrey. We have several difficulties. One is that there is a great deal of inward commuting into places such as Guildford, as well...

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: My understanding is that the proposal would receive support from Liberal Democrats across the county. I raise the case of Epsom not simply because it is the hon. Gentleman's constituency but also because it is one of those places on the boundary between county transport and commuting transport. There are many people in the area contributing to the congestion, but who would like late-night...

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: I reassure the hon. Gentleman that Liberal Democrats have reviewed those views and will not be voting in the same way again.

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: Indeed. It might be helpful to add that in the meeting to which the hon. Member for Fareham (Mr. Hoban) refers there were deputies present, and particular circumstances applied to the wording of the motion. Liberal Democrats do not vote in support of extra housing.

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: No. I have made the point that we do not support extra housing for the south-east other than affordable housing—not in Surrey, at any rate. I turn to the problems faced by elderly people who do not wish to drive, cannot drive, cannot afford a vehicle or should not be driving. Although there are transport schemes for such people, they need to know that buses will call regularly—that the...

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that point. One of the things that we in Guildford have done is to introduce cross-town buses and shuttle buses from the station. Regrettably, however, Conservative members of the council have voted against our having as many buses as we would like. As a result, the habit of catching the train and taking the bus up to the high street to go shopping will not be...

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: In making that statement it would have been more accurate if I had said that we oppose the additional housing numbers announced, not all new building.

Transport (South-East) (30 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: We accepted, with reluctance, the original figure of 35,000. We opposed the additional 13,000 for Surrey that was planned above that figure.

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Live Animal Exports (31 Oct 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (1) if she will propose changes to EU law to allow the banning of export of live animals; (2) if she will make a statement on the Government's policy in respect of the exporting of meat instead of live animals.

Coalition Against International Terrorism (1 Nov 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: I have supported the Government's action, to a certain extent with reluctance. That is true of many of us who do not want to see bombing and the loss of life. On 11 September we knew that a response would be necessary. The statement made on 10 October by al-Qaeda spokesman Sulayman Abu Gaith, suggesting his group had no intention of respecting the principle of distinction between civilians...

Coalition Against International Terrorism (1 Nov 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: No. I want to continue. If there were a break in the bombing or a significant scaling down of military action in the winter months, could bin Laden or the Taliban take advantage in a way that compromised our position? I would be interested to hear a response on that. Would air action also grind to a halt as the snows arrived? Could our aims be better progressed by that approach, because of...

Coalition Against International Terrorism (1 Nov 2001)

Ms Sue Doughty: I thank the Secretary of State. Herat was littered with unexploded bomblets, restricting the movement of local people, who will suffer not only now, but for years to come. Using cluster bombs is wrong, and doubly wrong when we criticise the Taliban for their humanitarian record. The Prime Minister said in his speech to the Welsh Assembly that we are doing all we can to limit civilian...
