Milton Keynes/South Midlands Sub-region (13 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: My hon. Friend mentioned sustainability. Does he agree that for any community to be truly sustainable, it must have the support of local people? That is probably one of the key points that many of our constituents feel strongly about. They feel that housing is being imposed without any genuine local concerns being taken into account.

Mark Lancaster: rose—

Milton Keynes/South Midlands Sub-region (13 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: This is actually on the broader point, to be honest. The hon. Lady talked about being very keen to listen to her constituents' views. Will she take this opportunity to explain to her constituents and mine why she feels so strongly that they should not be trusted to help to deliver the future of Milton Keynes; why they should not be trusted to vote in local elections to allow Milton Keynes...

Written Answers — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Higher Education: Finance (14 Jan 2009)

Business of the House: Transport Infrastructure (15 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: Given the appalling service received by commuters in the very first week of the newly refurbished west coast main line, does the Secretary of State at least understand why they are slightly cynical about his promises and the impact of future investment in the railways? May I ask him to reassure them about the action that he will take to ensure that last week's events are not repeated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: West Coast Main Line (27 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: The refurbishment of the west coast main line should have been cause for great celebration, but in focusing almost solely on reducing long-distance journey times, it has been an unmitigated disaster for intermediate towns such as Milton Keynes and Rugby. I welcome the fact that we are trying to get people off aeroplanes, but will taking an extra five minutes simply to stop in Milton Keynes...

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Thames Valley Police (28 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: On internal churn, although all areas within Thames Valley police are suffering from the problem that my hon. Friend is so clearly explaining, it is especially bad in the north, including in Milton Keynes. Thames Valley police has in the past been forced to put an internal ban on officer movement from north to south to compensate for the outflow into the Met police. That means that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Student Finance (29 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: The decision to remove funding for ELQ students was a knee-jerk reaction and a mistake. As unemployment rises in the United Kingdom and people are desperate to retrain, the Government are beginning to look stupid on this issue. Can the Minister simply explain why the decision was taken, and will he at least begin to review it? People are desperate to retrain, and they cannot under this system.

Business of the House (29 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: I add my voice to those on both sides of the House who are calling for a debate on Sri Lanka. While events there have been overshadowed in recent weeks by events in Gaza, the death toll continues to rise every day with many thousands of civilians caught between the warring factions. I urge the Leader of the House to do all she can to encourage the Government to bring that war to an end.

Business of the House: Armed Forces Personnel (29 Jan 2009)

Mark Lancaster: Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that one way of meeting harmony guidelines would be to minimise the number of armed forces personnel on operations? He accepts that when Tornado replaces Harrier, the uplift for ground personnel will be some 50 per cent. more than at the moment. However, will he reassure the House that the decision to replace Tornado with Harrier will not be made until...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (3 Feb 2009)

Mark Lancaster: Why does the Secretary of State's Department refuse to engage with local communities when deciding on new locations for bail hostels?

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Skills and Further Education (3 Feb 2009)

Mark Lancaster: While the number of places has undoubtedly fallen, may I commend the proactive work of the Open university? It has recently introduced the Re-launch website which acts as a search engine to find both places and potential sources of finance?

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Skills and Further Education (3 Feb 2009)

Mark Lancaster: I hope that the Secretary of State will treat this as a genuine request for information. Given his commitment to getting people back to work, what assessment has he made of the potential cost of adding students currently on benefit to those who are exempt from his reversal of funding for equivalent or lower qualifications?

Mark Lancaster: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice with reference to his Department's procurement success review (1) how many roles within his Department will not be available via the redeployment pool; (2) how long employees of his Department will have in which to make decisions on their re-employment under the procurement success review proposals; (3) whether the new Director's post will be...

Business of the House (12 Feb 2009)

Mark Lancaster: May we have a debate on the future of the Brigade of Gurkhas? I should declare my interest as, I believe, the only Member of Parliament who has served in the brigade. Many comments have been made about the plight of the Gurkhas, most of which have been ill-informed. My personal fear is for the brigade's future. Given the Prime Minister's commitment to British jobs for British workers, does...
