Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: National Assembly (List Members) (20 Jul 2005)

Mark Tami: What plans he has to introduce legislation affecting the position of list Members in the National Assembly for Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: National Assembly (List Members) (20 Jul 2005)

Mark Tami: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. I am sure that he has seen the Leanne Wood guide to being a good Assembly list Member in today's Western Mail, in which she advocates avoiding casework but using the considerable budgets to employ staff only two to three days a week so that they can spend the rest of the time on political activity, and of course Leanne's golden rule: "On receipt...

Written Answers — Home Department: Vehicle Registration/Taxation (12 Sep 2005)

Written Answers — Transport: Road Safety (10 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what advice his Department provides for local authorities regarding the siting of (a) speed bumps and (b) chicanes.

Written Answers — Deputy Prime Minister: Fly-posting (11 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many prosecutions for fly-posting on motorway bridges in England and Wales there have been in each of the last five years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: I thank my right hon. Friend and the Government for the tremendous support that they have given the Airbus A350 project, which will create and safeguard thousands of jobs in north Wales and the UK. Will he give the same level of support to the European Trade Commissioner and his difficult but vital talks at the World Trade Organisation, which will shape the future of the civil aviation...

Clean Coal Technology (12 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: Is it not testament to the lack of a proper energy policy in this country that we are discussing the subject only now? We should be leading the world, with many plants using the technology.

Business of the House (13 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: Has my right hon. Friend read about the excellent "Stamp It Out" campaign launched by The Sun? It draws attention to the amount of cruelty to domestic animals in Britain—animals that are tortured and often killed. Is it not time we had a debate in which to discuss how that cruelty can be ended, and how it can be ensured that the penalty fits the crime?

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: Does my hon. Friend have further information on that case? Was the woman represented by a union, and was she able to pursue it through that means?

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend is making a good argument for workers joining a trade union. One of the most significant benefits of being a trade union member are the excellent legal services that unions provide. I defy anyone to get the same level of legal protection from a firm of lawyers for the same amount of money as they pay for trade union membership. We should encourage people to join and make access...

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: I worked for a trade union for 15 years and was involved in several tribunals. In my experience, it is rare that they even threaten to award costs. I am not aware of a case where that happened.

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: I want to make just one further point, concerning the community legal service. I have compared the terms of reference of the body that my hon. Friend seeks to create with those of the CLS, and there appears to be a lot of overlap. Does he accept that in effect, he will be duplicating the CLS's role, and if so, what, in his opinion, is the future of the CLS?

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: But surely to qualify in Scotland the case has to be complex, which is not the same as the provisions of my hon. Friend's Bill.

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: Does my hon. Friend accept that there must be a balance and we have to be careful that while giving the appropriate rights we do not legislate unions out of existence? In countries such as France, where perhaps the terms of such legislation would go much further, trade union membership is very low indeed, apart from in a few sections of the public sector.

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: Is that not the point? We should be concentrating on the very complex cases and not opening everything up. We should try to ensure that people do not get to that point and, through the work of trade union representatives and discussions with employers, we should try to resolve the issues before they reach the tribunal stage. That should not be the first port of call.

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: The hon. Member for Kettering (Mr. Hollobone) says that there are loads of hoops to go through, but there is nothing to stop anyone from going to a tribunal with any sort of case under any circumstances, although that does not necessarily mean that they will get anywhere with such cases. In my previous job, I was involved in a lot of tribunals in which the case reached the first stage before...

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Mark Tami: The hon. Gentleman may not be able to give the number, but can he at least give us a few examples? He is obviously sure of his ground, because he is saying that he knows of loads of cases from his area, so can he name just one?
