Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Occupational Pensions (17 Apr 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I am pleased to contribute to tonight's debate, not least to put some facts and figures on the record that have been ignored so far. I am glad that my hon. Friend the Member for Caerphilly (Mr. David) mentioned some of the positive effects that the Government have had on the lives of pensioners since coming to power in 1997, but he missed out a few that deserve a mention—not least the fact...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Occupational Pensions (17 Apr 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I do not share the hon. Lady's concerns because I believe that her analysis is incorrect. We cannot have it both ways. Either we analyse what happened in 1997 or compare it with how successful our economy is now. Pension fund assets rose by £270 billion between 1996 and 1999. Dividends, employer contributions, employees contributions and total income all rose in 1997 and all were higher in...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Occupational Pensions (17 Apr 2007)

Lynda Waltho: The Pensions Commission concluded that although employers should have been increasing contributions during the 1980s and 1990s, in fact they reduced them. Can the right hon. Gentleman explain that conclusion?

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Occupational Pensions (17 Apr 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I would like the hon. Gentleman to tell me whether he agrees with his colleague, the hon. Member for Eastbourne (Mr. Waterson), who today on "The Daily Politics" show led people to believe that the Tory party would look at bringing back the dividend tax credit. What would the hon. Gentleman's party do?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: 2012 Olympics (Lottery Costs) (16 Apr 2007)

Lynda Waltho: Although I welcome my right hon. Friend's assurances so far about current budgets, I received over the Easter recess several lobbies from grass-roots sports clubs, so the message is not getting through—something encouraged in some cases by what one might call mischievous local election candidates. Will she consider giving a written assurance or a co-ordinating body an assurance, so that...

Written Answers — Home Department: Domestic Violence (16 Apr 2007)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many domestic violence offenders have completed community rehabilitation orders without having (a) started and (b) completed the Integrated Domestic Abuse Programme that was a condition of their sentence.

Written Answers — Treasury: Employment (29 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proposals he has to increase employment.

[Mr. Eric Martlew in the Chair] — Inland Waterways (West Midlands) (27 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I am concerned about a particular group of volunteers. The hon. Lady will know the Bonded Warehouse, which is part of the Stourbridge regeneration. It is staffed by volunteers who spend most of their days there and who have helped to regenerate a whole part of Stourbridge and the Stourbridge arm. I am very concerned about the effect that the cuts will have on them, their futures and the...

[Mr. Eric Martlew in the Chair] — Inland Waterways (West Midlands) (27 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: The Netherton tunnel will determine whether the Stourbridge arm of the canal stays open. I visited the canal yesterday and the two towpaths are still closed, although the tunnel has been reopened to boats. There is a real fear among boaters and other users of the paths that the whole thing will be closed down, which would cut off Stourbridge from the rest of the network. That would be sad,...

Business of the House: Women, Justice and Gender Equality (8 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: First, may I apologise for leaving during the speech of the hon. Member for Epping Forest (Mrs. Laing)? That was no reflection on her speech, but I needed to attend a Committee sitting upstairs. Moreover, I apologise to hon. Members of all parties for missing what I am sure were important contributions. I am pleased to be called to speak on international women's day, especially as its theme...

Business of the House: Women, Justice and Gender Equality (8 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: The hon. Lady has touched on an important debate that is currently taking place between health professionals, educational professions and parents. Will she enlighten me on what point in the education cycle such education would be suitable? I am talking about not only what one might describe as sexual plumbing, but relationship education. That is certainly a hot issue in my constituency at the...

Business of the House: Women, Justice and Gender Equality (8 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I am slightly confused as to whether the hon. Lady is suggesting that flexible working should be available only for women. Would not many men also like to take care of their children and provide input into their lives?

Business of the House: Women, Justice and Gender Equality (8 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: The pressure that the hon. Lady describes came from not only Conservative Members, but Members of all parties. I remember a debate in which the hon. Member for Solihull (Lorely Burt) made the same demands. There has also been considerable pressure from my Labour colleagues—male and female. The hon. Lady should therefore reconsider her comment.

Business of the House: Women, Justice and Gender Equality (8 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I, too, have something to thank Baroness Thatcher for: the effect that she had on my life. Because of her, I knew that things had to change. She made me become political, join the Labour party and fight for change. I also remember marching to get my school milk back—one of my first political acts—for which I also have her to thank. The hon. Lady would struggle, however, to think of three...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: Along with hon. Friends, I applaud Monday's announcement of an extra £2 million to tackle domestic violence. Will my right hon. Friend assure me that the Government will remain focused on that important policy area, especially on supporting victims through the legal process to bring their attackers to justice?

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: British Sky Broadcasting: ITV Network (5 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he will make a decision on whether to exercise discretion under section 42 of the Enterprise Act 2002 to issue a public interest intervention notice in relation to BSkyB's acquisition of 17.9 per cent. of ITV.

Orders of the Day: Off-Road Vehicles (Registration) Bill (2 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Blackley (Graham Stringer) on his success on bringing the Bill to this debate, and I fully support his aims. I do not intend to speak for too long, as I am aware of the amount of interest in the Bill and I know that many Members wish to speak on the next Bill, as I do. As we have heard from hon. Friends throughout the country,...

Orders of the Day: Off-Road Vehicles (Registration) Bill (2 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I thought that my example was bad enough, but it seems that there is even more extreme behaviour in Stoke-on-Trent, South. Residents inform me that the vast majority of mini-moto users in their area race around on their bikes without wearing any kind of safety gear. Albeit that what they are doing is antisocial, there is the potential for horrendous accidents. There have already been some...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill: Clause 132 (1 Mar 2007)

Lynda Waltho: I seem to be one of the few members of the Committee who was not a councillor. [Interruption.] Oh, the hon. Member for Lichfield is in the minority with me. For my sins, I was regional officer for the Labour party. I was there to encourage councillors and to assist them during the election period. Has the Minister thought about the way in which publicity is used as a weapon? It is almost a...
