Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Communities in Control (9 Jul 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on her statement and the White Paper. The ideas on empowerment and holding councillors and officers to account will be welcomed in Stourbridge, where Tory-controlled Dudley council has closed leisure centres, schools and libraries with no consultation. This week, the council has cut services to the elderly and doubled the price of meals on wheels, also...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Young Persons Bill [Lords]: New Clause 6 (3 Jul 2008)

Lynda Waltho: Indeed, there are schools and residential homes that will not accept children unless they have looked-after status. The work done at Sunfield school in the constituency of the hon. Member for Bromsgrove—it  actually has a Stourbridge address, so I feel that it is partly in my constituency too—is absolutely fantastic. It is run by Barry Carpenter and his staff, and it will not accept...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Young Persons Bill [Lords]: New Clause 6 (3 Jul 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I rise to speak to new clauses 33 and 34 in my name and that of my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol, East. I am particularly keen to ensure that the Bill supports and protects disabled children who live away from home, many—as the hon. Gentleman said—of whom have profound communication difficulties. Those children are the least able to tell anybody how they feel—whether they are...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Young Persons Bill [Lords]: Clause 10 (26 Jun 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I welcome the “Staying Put” pilots, which were discussed on the Floor of the House when they were introduced. I would like the Minister to address further a point that I made then. There is evidence from similar schemes in Northern Ireland, which have been wonderful and successful. Given that evidence already exists, are we not hanging back a bit too much? I understand the need for...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Young Persons Bill [Lords]: Clause 10 (26 Jun 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I echo the comments of hon. Members in welcoming you to the Chair, Mr. Williams, for this most important Committee on a Bill that, once enacted, will transform the outcomes of looked-after children for many years to come. The new clause deals with accommodation—a matter on which a great stride is needed. As we know, many young people in care have experienced great disruption in their lives....

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will take steps to give increased powers to local authorities to regulate lap dancing clubs, in particular by (a) extending the category of sex encounter establishments across England and Wales and (b) removing the exemption for establishments that possess a premises licence.

Women and Equality: Lap-Dancing Clubs (Licensing) (19 Jun 2008)

Lynda Waltho: What recent representations she has received on the application of the gender equality duty to the licensing of lap-dancing clubs by local authorities. The Minister for Women and Equality (Ms Harriet Harman): Representations on lap-dancing clubs have been made, among other ways, through my hon. Friend's early-day motion and again yesterday through the private Member's Bill introduced by my...

Women and Equality: Lap-Dancing Clubs (Licensing) (19 Jun 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I know that my right hon. and learned Friend is aware of the concern about this issue up and down the country, demonstrated not least by yesterday's support for the private Member's Bill. Does she not agree that it is absolutely ridiculous in this day and age that one can object to a neighbour building a porch, but cannot object to a lap-dancing club opening up 200yd up the road? Will she...

Orders of the Day: Children and Young Persons Bill [Lords] (16 Jun 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I welcome all that the hon. Lady has said, but does she agree that the extension of looked-after status to disabled children is a trick that may have been missed? They are often in placements for 52 weeks a year. On the Children, Schools and Families Committee, we have both heard of stories in which the most vulnerable of vulnerable children do not receive their visits or anything until it is...

Orders of the Day: Children and Young Persons Bill [Lords] (16 Jun 2008)

Lynda Waltho: There is already ample evidence, particularly from Northern Ireland, of how successful these schemes can be. Foster carers from Dudley whom I have met are looking for a roll-out even sooner and wondering why the pilots are necessary, because there is ample evidence to show that something similar to the "staying put" scheme works already.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Football (12 May 2008)

Lynda Waltho: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. I am sure that he was as pleased as I was to learn on Saturday that Stourbridge FC—the glorious glassboys—has been promoted to the British Gas Business premier division. The club's success was a combination of the skills of the players, obviously, and of the manager Gary Hackett and the president Hugh Clark. In common with many clubs at that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Gift Aid (7 May 2008)

Lynda Waltho: The Mary Stevens hospice in Stourbridge is much loved by all my constituents—so much so that it derives 82 per cent. of its income from legacies and donations. How will changes made to gift aid in the Budget assist small charities and organisations such as Mary Stevens?

Fertility Treatment (Dudley PCT) (30 Apr 2008)

Lynda Waltho: Thirty years ago, a female child was delivered by caesarean section at Oldham and District general hospital. She weighed 5 lb 12 oz, and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Brown, named her Louise.

Louise Brown's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (22 Apr 2008)

Lynda Waltho: My right hon. Friend will know that the extension of the highly successful, reliable and climate-friendly Midland Metro from Birmingham to Brierly Hill in the black country is long overdue. I believe that we are due a ministerial visit next month to look at the route. My sons have gone from toddlers to teenagers waiting for this project. Will the Minister give the go-ahead before they make me...
