Communications Allowance — [Frank Cook in the Chair] (3 Mar 2010)

Bob Spink: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for giving way. I am grateful to him also for bringing this matter before the House. It is important to inform, engage and empower our constituents and any decent Member of Parliament will use and will have used the allowance to do just that-for example, to inform constituents about claiming pensions credit and changes to national insurance for carers...

[Frank Cook in the Chair] — Home Energy Efficiency (3 Mar 2010)

Bob Spink: On this important point, does the hon. Gentleman agree that the situation is even worse than has been stated because many energy companies forward-buy their oil or gas at a fixed rate? Therefore, when prices rise, they do not necessarily go up for the companies straight away; often it takes up to six months. However, they are quick to increase prices for the consumer. The regulators need to...

[Frank Cook in the Chair] — Home Energy Efficiency (3 Mar 2010)

Petitions: Anti-Social Behaviour (2 Mar 2010)

Bob Spink: I have a second petition, about antisocial behaviour, which we all know destroys the quality of life of decent, law-abiding residents. We should not tolerate it-we should seek to stop it, not excuse, explain or understand it. There is too much political correctness surrounding antisocial behaviour, and I thank Mr. and Mrs. Martin and those who have signed their petition for their efforts in...

Petitions: Carer Poverty (2 Mar 2010)

Bob Spink: I rise to present a petition that calls for a better deal for carers.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (2 Mar 2010)

Bob Spink: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on bringing this matter to the House. He is going through the disease processes, but does he acknowledge that one of the greatest risk factors after genetics is smoking? Will he therefore welcome no-smoking day on 10 March, which will be run in community halls, schools and shopping centres across the country? Will he try to get the NHS to get more people to...
