Council Housing (29 Jun 2005)

Nia Griffith: There is an alternative. Carmarthenshire county council in Wales consulted its tenants on what future they wanted for their housing stock. The response was 90 per cent. in favour of keeping it in-house and keeping the county council as landlord. That was not because the tenant groups are compliant, as anyone who has been to their meetings will know. They are well aware of the shortcomings of...

Transport Innovation Fund (5 Jul 2005)

Nia Griffith: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the scheme would provide a genuine incentive for individuals to seek more environmentally friendly forms of transport and that it would also be of benefit to those pensioners who use their cars only once or twice a week and thus do not get value for money out of the present system?

Defence in the World (7 Jul 2005)

Nia Griffith: As we remember all those who have been personally affected by today's tragedy, the overriding message must be one of calm and of avoiding knee-jerk reactions. I say this as someone who lived in Italy in 1978, when terrorist acts included the kidnapping and murdering of the then Italian Prime Minister. I know that Members will agree that we must be determined not to give in to terrorism. As we...

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

Nia Griffith: Given the utter contempt that Leanne Wood is showing for constituents by describing casework that a Plaid Cymru regional Assembly Member did for 2,500 constituents as a waste of time, because canvassing returns showed that few of them were inclined to vote for Plaid Cymru, will the Secretary of State order a thorough investigation into the role of regional AMs, and seek to establish whether...

Armed Forces (Modernisation) (21 Jul 2005)

Nia Griffith: It is with dismay and incomprehension that I find myself asking the Minister to explain why we are facing job losses at Llangennech, where up-to-date, state-of-the-art equipment has recently been installed. Although unemployment levels have come down rapidly in that area in recent years, it is still very much harder to find alternative employment there than in many of the more prosperous...

Secondary Education Reform (15 Nov 2005)

Nia Griffith: Many, many state school pupils go on to have successful university careers and many students who start off by doing dual science end up doing separate science at A-level. The hon. Lady's blanket criticism is unnecessary.

Secondary Education Reform (15 Nov 2005)

Nia Griffith: Is my hon. Friend, like me, puzzled by the three-year limit on the admissions policy? It seems that the idea of having an admissions policy is washed away if, after three years, schools can do what they like. If some schools are scrabbling for the brightest pupils, that may leave other schools out in the cold. That would completely distort the balanced picture that the admissions policy is...

Climate Change (22 Nov 2005)

Nia Griffith: On Friday 11 November, time ran out for the Management of Energy in Buildings Bill precisely because of the determination of the right hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Mr. Forth), ably aided and abetted by the hon. Member for Forest of Dean (Mr. Harper), who did their utmost to talk out that Bill. I should like to ask the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Mr. Letwin) if he can...
