Home Affairs and Communities (23 May 2005)

Lyn Brown: I am grateful for the opportunity to make my first contribution in the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I congratulate all hon. Members who have made their maiden speeches this afternoon. In particular, I congratulate the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) on his excellent maiden speech—no pressure there then! Tony Banks is a hard act to follow. He is flamboyant, funny,...

Business of the House (16 Jun 2005)

Lyn Brown: Will my right hon. Friend make time for a debate about religious and sacred desecration?

London 2012 Olympic Bid (6 Jul 2005)

Lyn Brown: I can honestly say that I do not believe that representing West Ham will get better than it feels today. I am finding it difficult to express how overjoyed I am and what this means to the people of my constituency in terms of the jobs, opportunities and regeneration that will be brought to the area. We are absolutely delighted, and Stratford is still partying as we speak. I expect that the...

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Lyn Brown: I addressed a gathering in West Ham on Saturday as part of the VE and VJ celebrations. After we had reflected on the dreadful events of 7/7, I urged my constituents to take the joy and elation back from the callous bombers who destroyed many lives and our euphoria. Today, I urge hon. Members to take our joy back and to continue to celebrate our amazing victory in bringing the Olympic games to...

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Lyn Brown: I agree with my hon. Friend. If we do not set up training programmes and plan to get our children into those jobs, we will simply fail. The games will bring an opportunity for us to showcase our talent, creativity, innovation and design to global audiences, and will transform the local and regional economy. We must, however, remember that there will be casualties from the regeneration of the...

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Lyn Brown: I am about to deal with that. We need to ensure that the planning that is essential for the continued vibrancy of the companies concerned is expedited as quickly as possible. Firms have talked to me about wanting a fair price and about needing to ensure that any red tape is dealt with sympathetically so that they do not incur down time and therefore financial loss, which will mean a loss of...

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Lyn Brown: Does my hon. Friend agree that the five boroughs concerned have done remarkably well in pushing together the benefits of the area that they all hold dear? In fact, the London borough of Newham may have been the driving force in creating the cohesion between them, keeping them together and pressing for the agendas that they all hold dear: inward investment, skills and education, health and...

Public Bill Committee: London Olympics Bill: Clause 4 - General functions (13 Oct 2005)

Lyn Brown: The residents of my borough in which the stadium and the park will sit are tremendously excited by the games, not only because of the event itself with the enthusiasm and the energy that it will bring to the area, but because of the way in which the games will change their lives and, hopefully, the lives of their children for the better. Will the Minister consider whether the Bill properly...

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Lyn Brown: Like many hon. Members, I fully accept the principles behind the Bill. There is absolutely no place in today's society, which wants to call itself decent, for allowing discrimination of any kind to continue unchallenged. The promotion of equal opportunities at work and in the community and the elimination of discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, sexuality, disability, age or creed...

Orders of the Day — Employment Tribunals (Representation and Assistance in Discrimination Proceedings) Bill (14 Oct 2005)

Lyn Brown: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for that point. The point that I am attempting to make—and perhaps have made badly—is that if one has suffered a wrong, one deserves compensation for the wrong that has been wrought. I accept that we need to be competitive in business, but I also believe that one of the things that we have not covered today is the fact that people who have been wronged...

Lyn Brown: As a new Member, I am wondering whether it is usual—and reasonable—for me to have to sit here listening to something that I have read myself being read out to me.

Public Bill Committee: Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill: Clause 4 - Entry clearance (20 Oct 2005)

Lyn Brown: May I just make it clear that I intervened in an attempt to move the debate on and not because I lack a commitment to the rights of our migrant and refugee communities? I wanted to get to the heart of the matter and to ensure that we have enough time in Committee to debate the Bill properly.

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

Lyn Brown: Given that the right hon. and learned Gentleman has referred to costs, has he calculated the bureaucratic cost of administering these schemes? In particular, if this is not about creating a vehicle to avoid inheritance tax, what extra provision would the Inland Revenue require to manage the calculations involved?

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

Lyn Brown: rose—

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

Lyn Brown: I think that I am trying to intervene, Mr. Deputy Speaker. May I say that I am quite offended by the right hon. and learned Gentleman's remark? I do not know how much Conservative Members have in the way of resources to assist with research, but we certainly have to do our own.

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

Lyn Brown: The Bill is a narrow reflection of the concerns that many of us have about pension policies. The hallmark of a good, decent society is not how well the strong prosper but how the weaker and most vulnerable are supported. A decent society is one that gives its eldest citizens dignity in retirement, and that is what the debate should be about. How can we honour the contribution of the older...
