Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 93 (23 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: As Members of the House we have been subjected to a degree of innuendo that has been translated into an untruth by people out in the big wide world. What is to stop somebody taking the list for a given 12 months and using it for four or five years thereafter to create a situation of fear or of considerable embarrassment for  people, when that should not happen? Are there any remedies that a...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 49 (23 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: I am concerned about vulnerable people who could be approached by the Inland Revenue for information. Will the Bill give leeway to the Department, for example in a situation in which an 80-year-old mother is the third party? Will there be some compassion over the whole business of application? What guidelines will be given to achieve that?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 49 (23 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: May I press the Minister a little further?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 49 (23 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: What a pity.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 49 (23 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: No thank you, Mr. Atkinson.

Taxi Drivers (Assault) (24 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: The debate provides me with an opportunity— [Interruption.] After you have been congratulated again by the Members who are at the Chair, Mr. Speaker, the debate provides me with the opportunity to wish you well. I understand the congratulations, and I wish you well in your very difficult task and recognise the courage that you have displayed in taking it on. My job tonight, however, is to...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) - Clause 112 (25 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is a growing tax that is hated up and down the land? I have heard many people, many of them elderly ladies who derive great pleasure from this hobby, who feel really hard done by.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) - Clause 112 (25 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: Does my hon. Friend also accept that there is a very great social facet to this whole business? Many people go to the bingo clubs and are treated to subsidised lunches, which is a great boon because they do not have to cook for themselves. Have the Government taken that into account?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) - Clause 112 (25 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: I thought that I was invisible, but I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. Does he agree with me when I say that, in my experience, the clubs are very open and are more than happy to welcome Members of Parliament? That is certainly the case in my local club in Northampton, which I have visited on two occasions and hope to visit again shortly. The welcome that I receive there is...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) - Clause 112 (25 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: The Minister just said that she had no ability to influence or to seem to influence HMRC. Does that mean that HMRC can, on its own discretion, spend taxpayers’ money willy-nilly on an appeal that is so antisocial?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 113 (25 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: The clause causes me great concern. We have a casino in Northampton that offers the very facilities about which my hon. Friend is talking in perfectly well run, well ordered surroundings. I am concerned that if the measure drives the high-stakes gambling business underground again, that will help to feed crime and other the antisocial behaviours that casinos, in fact, attempt to prevent.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 113 (25 Jun 2009)

Brian Binley: It is well known that I am a keen supporter of the public house, which has been under immense pressure—many public houses are closing. As well as by entertaining customers and providing the traditional facilities, landlords are trying hard to find additional ways to bring in customers. Does my hon. Friend agree that the measure will accelerate the demise of public houses and will not...

Orders of the Day: Education and Skills Bill (14 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: rose—

Orders of the Day: Education and Skills Bill (14 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Secretary of State is clutching at straws when he uses the CBI's comments as an argument for industry and business in this country generally, because it represents a very small minority of businesses, mostly the very large businesses to which costs are proportionately less important than to small and medium-sized enterprises? The cost of policing will be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: Question 11, Mr. Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: I apologise, Mr. Speaker. There are times when I am on another planet; that was one of them. Will the Prime Minister assure us that Mr. Stephen Carter, his chosen nominee for Northern Rock, has no residual interest whatsoever in Brunswick Group?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Enterprise (17 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: Enterprise relies on new business, as the Secretary of State mentioned. What is he doing to help enterprising people who start up new businesses, given the credit squeeze, which is having such an impact on their cash flow? Will he ask the banks to be sensitive at this difficult time?

Sri Lanka (17 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: I had the good fortune to go to Sri Lanka two years ago, specifically to see how aid money was being spent. Although I recognise all the concerns that the hon. Gentleman has raised—he is absolutely right—equally I recognise how difficult it was, in a war zone, to rebuild and replenish the badly damaged area in the north around Jaffna. I got the impression that a Sri Lankan Government body...

Sri Lanka (17 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: indicated assent.

Sri Lanka (17 Jan 2008)

Brian Binley: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman agrees with me that there is another group of people who need to be represented and protected and whose lifestyles need to be massively improved. They are the 160,000 people who are the product of the series of wars, fighting actions and so on—the people of Puttalam, the forgotten people of Sri Lanka. I do not want them to be omitted from this debate or...
