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: 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?

Written Answers — Home Department: Pyramid Posters Ltd. (28 Oct 2005)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which prisons undertake work for the company Pyramid Posters Ltd. what the value of such contracts with each prison is; what the (a) start date and (b) duration of each contract is; and if he will make a statement.

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?

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: 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: 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: 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...

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 — 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 — 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: 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?

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.

Development (Basingstoke) (13 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: The Minister raises an interesting point. It is incumbent on all Governments, regardless of their political hue, to examine policies, such as that of Wandsworth borough council, which is called "Hidden Homes". It focuses on existing council housing stock, and addresses whether there is space within it to create fresh housing stock that is more cost-effective to build because there is no need...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 3 - Power for aerodromes to (5 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: This is a valuable amendment. One of the things that struck me in the debate about aircraft noise and how being close to airports impacts on people's day-to-day life is that there is a lot of scrutiny of the environment immediately around airports and that there is often good consultation   with local councils, as, in the case of Heathrow, in Hillingdon and Hounslow. However, my observation...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 3 - Power for aerodromes to (5 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: There are some conditions under which the term ''flight path'' is determined. However, the hon. Gentleman raises an excellent point, which is, at what stage do we set the scope? My proposal is that the scope be set more broadly, which would force that question to be properly answered. The hon. Gentleman raised a good point, which brings me back to my agreement with my hon. Friend the Member...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 3 - Power for aerodromes to (5 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: I do not disagree with my hon. Friend. I have concluded my speech.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 2 - Regulation by Secretary of State (5 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: I think that I can answer that question. It goes to the heart of why relying purely on the noise quota system is problematic: namely, that it is based on estimate noises. The hon. Gentleman is right. Currently, we have no mechanism to address the case of a landing plane that is significantly louder than its estimate. That is my fundamental concern about relying on the noise quota system; it...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 2 - Regulation by Secretary of State (5 Jul 2005)

Justine Greening: I will withdraw amendment No. 14, but I am not satisfied with the Minister's response. I understand that my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury will return to the subject on Report. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
