Orders of the Day — Childcare Bill: New Clause 2 — Provision of Information About Young Children: England (9 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I concur with my hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton). The new clause is far too broad. The Government need to be far clearer about what they are trying to achieve with a measure that they seek to introduce at such a late stage in the consideration of the Bill. There is a real danger that parents throughout the country will be concerned about the level of...

Orders of the Day — Childcare Bill: New Clause 2 — Provision of Information About Young Children: England (9 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I understand how the information might be used by central Government, but it seems slightly contradictory that the Bill gives powers and duties to local authorities to make sure that child care provision is available locally. I have many young parents living in my constituency, Putney, and I question whether the level of detail is appropriate. Local authorities are being given powers and...

Orders of the Day — Childcare Bill: New Clause 6 — Best Value: Code of Practice (9 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I support the amendments tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Wycombe (Mr. Goodman). As hon. Members have already said, the market is mixed. That is one of the values of the market because it ensures that the provision of child care is diverse. An especially diverse group of people lives in my constituency, so the more diverse our provision, the better the choice for my local parents. It...

Orders of the Day — Childcare Bill: Clause 1 — General Duties of Local Authority in Relation to Well-being of Young Children (9 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: Action is more important than rhetoric. Under this Government, social mobility has dropped rather than increased. I am pleased that I am in my mid-30s, not my mid-teens, because the prospects for me now would be far bleaker than they were when I was 16.

Orders of the Day — Childcare Bill: Clause 1 — General Duties of Local Authority in Relation to Well-being of Young Children (9 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I hesitate to engage in such a debate again—the one in Committee was particularly heated—but I want to take this opportunity to reassure Labour Members of my own genuinely good intentions in supporting the amendment. All I want is the outcomes of the most disadvantaged children to improve, and stating that explicitly in the Bill would make it absolutely clear to local authorities. I fully...

Orders of the Day — Childcare Bill: Clause 41 — The Learning and Development Requirements (9 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I am grateful that the Minister recognises that there is confusion. Parents in Putney have expressed concern about the word "taught" and that should be borne in mind as the measure is rolled out in the wider world, to allay parents' fears that the framework is more rigid than the Minister intends.

Orders of the Day — Animal Welfare Bill: New Clause 2 — Sale of Animals on the Internet (14 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: Does the Minister agree that a 13-week maximum custodial sentence for the worst cases of animal cruelty is insubstantial and insufficient, and sends out exactly the wrong message to organised criminals who are engaging in offences such as cruelty and dog-fighting?

Water Shortages (West Sussex) (16 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Arundel and South Downs (Nick Herbert) on securing this very important debate. I also want to thank the Minister for allowing me to speak at short notice. We have had problems in Roehampton in my constituency that tie in with what has been said already in the debate. I want to give a view of the problem as it appears in a part of Greater London...

Water Shortages (West Sussex) (16 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I am extremely grateful for that clarification, because I looked into the matter, and my understanding is that under the Water Industry Act 1991, the uppermost limit was 10 m. My flats were above that level, and there was no statutory duty to supply to any level above 10 m. Perhaps the Minister will clarify that. If I am incorrect, I shall be delighted.

Justine Greening: If he will make a statement on the performance of rail services in Greater London.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Services (Greater London) (21 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: One aspect of performance that is often overlooked, although it is very important to my constituents who use Putney main line station, is ticketing. Pre-paid Oyster cards are now used regularly by my constituents who take the tube, but many who begin their journeys at Putney main line station want to be able to use flexible tickets there as well. Can the Secretary of State say whether the...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Bill: Schedule 3 — Olympic Symbol Protection (21 Mar 2006)

Justine Greening: I briefly wish to take the opportunity to add my support to the amendments. We all recognise that, although some people will get to watch the Olympics live, most people even in my constituency of Putney, which is close to where some of the events will take place, will watch the games on television in the same way that we now watch Wimbledon on television. To be able to iron out the concern...
