Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Excluded Children (27 Apr 2009)

Lynda Waltho: What recent discussions he has had with local authorities on proposals to abolish appeals panels for excluded children.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Excluded Children (27 Apr 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer. I am particularly concerned about talk, especially from the Opposition Benches, about stopping these panels. They are a particular safeguard for children with special needs, who we know are three times more likely to be excluded. Will she assure me, the Council for Disabled Children and the National Children's Bureau that this Government and the...

Written Answers — Health: Fertility: Medical Treatments (27 Apr 2009)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what counselling services are available on the NHS for couples seeking NHS-funded infertility treatment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Lap-dancing Clubs (20 Apr 2009)

Lynda Waltho: How many times temporary event notices have been issued for events organised by lap-dancing clubs in the past 12 months; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Lap-dancing Clubs (20 Apr 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer, although I am disappointed by it. He may or may not be aware that local councils' licensing offices are getting more and more concerned about temporary event notices because they are being used increasingly by lap-dancing clubs, and also bars and pubs; one notice can be applied for per month. One owner of a lap-dancing club told me that the notices...

Building Colleges for the Future (25 Mar 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I accept everything that my hon. Friend the Minister says. However, many principals feel insulted. I, and they, accept and are grateful for everything that has been done already, as underlined in constant press releases, but many principals feel that they have been treated with disrespect. My hon. Friend is not a disrespectful person, but to constantly go over what we have done already is not...

Written Answers — International Development: Gaza (25 Mar 2009)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what recent assessment he has made of the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (2 Mar 2009)

Lynda Waltho: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (2 Mar 2009)

Lynda Waltho: My right hon. Friend will be aware of the world-renowned Stourbridge glass collection, based at Broadfield House in Dudley, but he might not be aware that at a meeting tonight, the Tory council will propose the disposal of the site. What can he do to protect this national treasure and my constituents from the philistines who run the council and threaten our black country heritage?

Written Answers — Treasury: Banking Industry (12 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the effect on bank lending policies of his recapitalisation of the banks.

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 25 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I believe that a consultation was held during the summer, and that contact was made with local authorities. What was the result? I understand that the overwhelming result was that local authorities wanted that ability. Are there statistics to say otherwise?

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 25 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: First of all, I thank the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats for their support—we have received cross-party support throughout, stuttering now and again, but generally it has been great. I am grateful for the clarification of the position on facial expressions. However, that indicates that hon. Members and Ministers sometimes do not appreciate what it is like on the streets or in...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 25 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The issue is not with foreseeing whether our concerns will arise. Such things are happening now. They are certainly happening to a greater extent in Durham. We know from experience that if people get away with something in one area, it will proliferate before we know it. There is quite a tight and connected community and dancers are shared.

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 25 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I beg to move amendment 78, in clause 25, page 20, line 1, leave out paragraph (b). May I say that your voice, Sir Nicholas, has taken on a completely different quality this afternoon, which I find quite interesting and stimulating? As I am sure  most members of the Committee are aware, since the Licensing Act 2003 came into force lap-dancing clubs have been licensed in the same way as...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 25 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: If we look at Stourbridge, for example, one of the clubs is directly opposite a sixth-form college. Young women walk backwards and forwards from the bus stop and the bus and train stations. At one of my surgeries, young women complained of being cat-called and harassed when they were leaving the college after evening events. That is a situation in which I envisage the duty being implemented....

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 20 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I do not recognise the description that the hon. Lady is giving. She has almost made brothels sound like homely, inviting places to go. That may be the case in the brothels that she has visited in Soho or wherever, but in Walsall or Wolverhampton and the area that I represent, we are talking about seedy places that are sometimes just as dangerous as the streets. They are sometimes in...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 20 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The hon. Lady does not have a monopoly on council estate upbringing—I was brought up on a council estate in Bermondsey, and I know exactly the type of area that she is talking about. Those places can be as dangerous as the streets. Women get attacked and are subject to all sorts of violent approaches. She was describing what sounded like a homely environment, but the flats I am talking...

School Buildings (Dudley) (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for his comments. I agree wholeheartedly, but what can we in Dudley do if the council does not go for the opportunities? Where will we be when Wolverhampton and the surrounding authorities get their money and continue developing as they already are? What prospects are there for children like my son and his friends and for my former teaching colleagues? In...

School Buildings (Dudley) (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: Building Schools for the Future—BSF—is the largest single schools capital investment programme for more than 50 years. It aims to rebuild or renew England's state secondary school estate during its lifetime. It is generally welcomed by teachers, head teachers, governors and parents, and, at this point, I must declare several interests, being not just the local MP, or MP within the borough...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 15 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The hon. Gentleman refers to the New Zealand example and the legislation, which is interesting and relevant. However, the evidence—or opinions—that I referred to earlier from Debbie Baker, stated that after five years of decriminalisation “it hasn't really made a difference to the average girl out on the street, except there is more competition and the prices have gone down....
