Written Answers — Education and Skills: Education and Skills White Paper (14 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what representations she has received on the Government's 14 to 19 White Paper.

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: Transparency is fundamental in ensuring that the finances are robustly controlled. Does my hon. Friend agree that a good way to create transparency is to allow scrutiny by Londoners and separate out the Olympic precept on council tax bills in the same way as the London Mayor's precept is spelt out?

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: The hon. Lady makes an excellent point that is linked to debates that we have held about vocational education. Does she agree that, if ever there were a trigger for focusing the House's attention on expanding our vocational education so that children in our schools today can benefit from the opportunities, it is the Olympics?

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: I shall begin by thanking the hon. Member for Loughborough (Mr. Reed) for allowing me time to make a brief contribution at the end of the debate. I apologise for not being present for the start, but I want to add my congratulations to the bid team, who did a superb job in winning the games for our capital city and our country. The Paralympics will be coming to this country as well as the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 4 — Commercial Flights Officer (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that what his and our amendments represent is certainty? For an airport operator who wants to expand or residents faced with the possibility of blight in the coming years, the amendments would provide some certainty within which all stakeholders could operate. At times, huge capital investments are made in the industry. Surely all concerned deserve a framework...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 4 — Commercial Flights Officer (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: I thank the hon. Gentleman for allowing me to intervene twice. He raises a valid point because my area of Putney has no noise monitoring in process, so the only way to monitor the amount of noise that we have to bear is by literally counting the number of planes overhead. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that what the Government propose in the Bill will take away the one control that we have and...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 4 — Commercial Flights Officer (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Surely, given the hon. Lady's words, it is vital that she support our amendments to provide the framework for resolving this ongoing debate. It is rather like a rugby team and a football team trying to play on the same pitch—people are debating in totally different ways, and we require a common set of rules. That is what our amendments seek to do. I therefore hope that the hon. Lady will...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 4 — Commercial Flights Officer (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Will the Minister give way?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 4 — Commercial Flights Officer (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Will the hon. Lady tell us how the Government define "medium to high noise"? What decibel levels are used?

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Household Waste (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what estimate she has made of the total UK household waste in each year between 1997 and 2005; what percentage was (a) discarded packaging material waste and (b) other waste; and if she will make a statement.

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Shopping Bags (10 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what estimate she has made of the number of free plastic shopping bags given away in England between 1997 and 2005; and if she will make a statement.

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that, given that the average life expectancy of a woman is now well over 75, changing the age limit of 75 in respect of the flexibility of annuities would help women even more than it would help men?

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: I thank the hon. Lady for giving way. It is clear from my constituency experience that one reason why many people have poor personal financial provision is that they do not understand the products on offer. However, does she not accept that the simplicity that the Bill would introduce to saving through the SaRA is at least a step forward compared with the current system? Perhaps it is just...

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: In my Putney constituency, the average voter age is 34, and I believe that the Bill would greatly help the 20-somethings and 30-somethings. In the context of what is being proposed, there is ample evidence in Britain that such people, who are trying to get on the property ladder, often prefer a mortgage product with a huge amount of flexibility to allow for stopping payments or drawing down...

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Are not the hon. Gentleman's concerns analogous to those that he may well have about the Chancellor's proposal for self-invested personal pensions, in which people can invest in a second home and put it into a pension vehicle where it will be tax-free?

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: The hon. Lady has moved on from the point on which I wished to intervene, so I do not intend to interrupt her flow any further.

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: I am grateful for the chance to speak in the debate. I shall start by expelling a few myths that seem to exist among those on the Labour Benches. My constituency, Putney, includes what may be Europe's largest council estate, the Alton estate in Roehampton. I have 12,000 people there, many of whom experience exactly the problems outlined by Labour Members. As their MP, I am determined to...

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: The hon. Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown) has discussed not jumping the gun, but we have waited a long time for it to be fired—it has been primed, but we are still waiting. Once the final Adair report is published on 30 November, I hope that the Government have the guts to consider introducing the proposals. Given the problems that Labour Members have outlined so eloquently, pensioners and...

Orders of the Day — Rights of Savers Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Children's Food Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: I am not a parent, but I am not sure that three and four-year-olds clamour for unhealthy food. We must be careful not to adopt sticking-plaster solutions, as the root cause of the problem is a lack of understanding among parents about a healthy diet. Surely, a junk food advertising ban is only a temporary solution, not a permanent one.
