Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Exchange Rate Movements (FCO) (21 Jan 2010)

Paul Goodman: As the Minister knows, some of the programmes in Pakistan are anti-radicalisation programmes; they are essentially extensions of the Prevent programme here. Has an assessment been made of the effectiveness of these programmes, and whether or not that is the case, will they be cut?

Petition — Sri Lanka (14 Jan 2010)

Paul Goodman: I rise to present a petition on behalf of 227 of my constituents in Wycombe. The petition states: The Petition of constituents of Mr Paul Goodman MP for Wycombe and others, Declares that following the end of hostilities in Sri Lanka as announced by President Mahinda Rajapakse, more than 280,000 Tamil civilians, including at least 50,000 children, remain detained indefinitely in cramped,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Yemen (5 Jan 2010)

Paul Goodman: Given that a significant proportion of terror offenders turn out to have been radicalised towards extremism here in Britain rather than in Yemen or elsewhere, should not the Prime Minister also consider calling a summit on the radicalisation towards extremism and terror that takes place here?

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Health Care (Buckinghamshire) (15 Dec 2009)

Paul Goodman: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Mrs. Gillan) on securing this debate. Despite her heavy commitments elsewhere, she has proved again this morning that she is a relentless and doughty champion of the health care and other interests of her constituents, as all of us in Buckinghamshire try to be. It is worth putting on the record once again that our colleague...

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Health Care (Buckinghamshire) (15 Dec 2009)

Paul Goodman: I agree. I will return to that point in a moment. As my hon. Friend the Member for Aylesbury rightly said, one effect of change being implemented is that transport has to take the strain, and that applies whether the ambulance service is involved, or whether poorer people are travelling who may not have access to their own private transport. I have touched on the implications of the change...

Petitions: Badman Report (Wycombe) (8 Dec 2009)

Paul Goodman: I rise to present a petition in the same terms on behalf of five of my constituents. Following is the full text of the petition: [The Petition of persons resident in the Wycombe parliamentary constituency, Declares that they are concerned about the recommendations of the Badman Report, which suggests closer monitoring of home educators, including a compulsory annual registration scheme and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Housing Transactions (8 Dec 2009)

Paul Goodman: The Minister is giving the House a lot of figures, so can we ask for one more? How many people to date have actually bought a home through the rent to homebuy scheme?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Housing Transactions (8 Dec 2009)

Paul Goodman: We are very grateful to the Minister for that answer. Perhaps he will be able to tell us in a moment exactly how much that cost per person, given that expenditure on the scheme was £115 million. The mortgage rescue scheme was meant to help up to 6,000 households at a cost of about £47,000 each. Since it has helped only 92 households to date, that works out at about £3 million per person...

Bills Presented: Education and Health (19 Nov 2009)

Paul Goodman: The Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families began his speech by saying "Hi". I will resist the temptation to say the same to you, Mr. Speaker, but I observe that he might have done better to begin by saying "Bye", because that is the message given by Labour Members this afternoon.

Bills Presented: Education and Health (19 Nov 2009)

Paul Goodman: Indeed. By the time the Front-Bench speakers had wound up, they had all gone, apart from the distinguished Chairman of the Children, Schools and Families Committee, of which my hon. Friend the Member for Beverley and Holderness (Mr. Stuart) is a distinguished member. At the moment, the lonely presence of the Health Secretary's Parliamentary Private Secretary, the hon. Member for Sedgefield...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Sheltered Accommodation (27 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: As the Minister has said, there was a useful debate on this matter last week in Westminster Hall. As well as paying tribute to the work of wardens, does he agree with Imogen Parry of ERoSH-the Essential Role of Sheltered Housing-who said: "Many residents are pleased with changes that have been made to their support services, including a move away from resident warden services,...

[Mr. Bill Olner in the Chair] — Wardens (Sheltered Housing) (20 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr. Olner. This has been an expert and calm debate that has been mercifully free of the party political rancour that sometimes disfigures these occasions. The reason for that lies in the contributions of all hon. Members to date, and in the fact that the tone was set from the start by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Torridge and West Devon...

Business of the House (15 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: The Government's Prevent programme has always been based on threats to public safety. It was expanded during the summer to take account of racist extremism as well as extremism claimed in the name of Islam. There can be no objection to that change in principle, but can the Leader of the House confirm that it was accompanied by a security assessment? If she cannot do that, can she tell us...

Parliamentary Elections (Recall and Primaries): New Clause 2 — Parish polls (13 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: It sounds as though the Minister may have made a rather important announcement. Can she confirm that, in effect, she is withdrawing parts 1, 2 and 3 of the Bill? Can she remind the House whether there was a commencement date for those parts and whether she is proposing to alter that date if it was in the Bill?

Parliamentary Elections (Recall and Primaries): New Clause 2 — Parish polls (13 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: I shall be very brief, Mr. Deputy Speaker, because I believe that I am able to speak not to the other new clauses and amendments in this group, but simply to new clause 2 alone. That is correct, is it not?

Parliamentary Elections (Recall and Primaries): New Clause 2 — Parish polls (13 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: In which case, I shall begin by responding to the hon. Member for Stroud (Mr. Drew) and new clause 2. In essence, he said that he wanted to update what happens at such polls in order to discourage any frivolous debate or vote. When wanting to update a proposal it is always worth asking the Minister about the law of unexpected consequences to see whether there would be any side-effect that...

Parliamentary Elections (Recall and Primaries): New Clause 2 — Parish polls (13 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: The hon. Lady makes a perfectly valid point and reminds me not to go through all the Departments' responses, which would take up a great deal of time. However, it is remarkable that if one types the word "petitions" into the website of, say, the Ministry of Justice, which must receive petitions, all one gets is references on to company windings-up and bankruptcy petition statistics, not a...

Parliamentary Elections (Recall and Primaries): New Clause 19 — Mutual insurance (13 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: I have a lot of sympathy with the point that the hon. Lady is making. Our intention was simply to dangle in front of Ministers a proposal that, as it would leave a power in the hands of Ministers, they might accept. Unfortunately, our offer is likely to be rejected.

Parliamentary Elections (Recall and Primaries): New Clause 19 — Mutual insurance (13 Oct 2009)

Paul Goodman: I rise to speak to our new clause 16, which would give local councils a power of general competence, as the Minister said, and our new clause 15, which seeks to delegate power to local authorities. As new clause 16 is related to Government new clauses 19 and 20 and Government amendments 28 and 29, as the Minister observed, I shall turn to them before dealing with our new clause 16, which goes...

Hydrofluorocarbons Limitation: Clause 5 — MPs' financial interests rules (30 Jun 2009)

Paul Goodman: Clearly, as I said yesterday, Members of the House are either elected representatives who are free to earn outside, or professional politicians who are not. It is with that thought that I shall address the clause and the amendments. As some hon. Members know, I have become convinced over a period that, unfortunately, the House is heading in the direction of professional politics. That, for...
