South Asian Earthquake (11 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: I congratulate the hon. Member for Tooting (Mr. Khan). Many of my constituents have family and friends who have been affected by this event. Will the Minister assure us that the Government will press to ensure that the reconstruction plan that is being worked up at the moment is adequate to meet the long-term challenges?

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill — Order for Second Reading read. (11 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: My right hon. Friend makes the valid point that if we are to report on emissions, we need to be certain about what we are trying to achieve. A problem with noise monitoring near Heathrow, for instance, is deciding whether to measure average levels or peaks and troughs. We need to know what we want to understand from our information before we spend a lot of money on collecting it.

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill — Order for Second Reading read. (11 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: My right hon. Friend is pursuing a valid line. Our experience in London—for example, with local targets for recycling—has produced far more creativity in places such as Wandsworth, where we have one of the highest recycling rates in the country. Local targets start to allow some sort of competition and creativity to emerge, from which broader conclusions can be drawn about what will be...

Orders of the Day — Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill — Order for Second Reading read. (11 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: My right hon. Friend makes a valid point. Above all, we need consistency. On the one hand, we are constantly told about the need to reduce CO 2 emissions, but on the other, the Civil Aviation Bill will remove the cap on the number of flights landing at Heathrow, which is one of the main causes of the rise in CO 2 emissions. The main answer will come from individuals changing their own...

Written Answers — Education and Skills: Schools (Putney) (11 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which schools in Putney will receive funding as part of the Schools Access Initiative; and how much has been allocated to each school in (a) 2004–05 (b) 2005–06 (c) 2006–07 and (d) 2007–08.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Burundi (11 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the new government in Burundi regarding the killing of British citizen Charlotte Wilson in December 2000; and if he will press the Burundian Government to take action to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Written Answers — Education and Skills: Schools (10 Nov 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which schools in the Putney constituency are included in the Building Schools for the Future Programme; which wave of the programme each school will be in; what the agreed funding is for each school; and what stage each project already under way has reached.

Children's Food Bill (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: Can the Minister be a little more specific about which bits of the Bill the Government do not support?

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.

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

Justine Greening: Will the hon. Lady give way?

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: 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: 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: 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...
