Support and Protection for Elderly People and Adults at Risk of Abuse: Clause 1 — Payments (10 Nov 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: I accept my hon. Friend's premise that the amount is considerably higher than the previous Government proposed. I also accept that we are in a desperate situation in which we are paying £120 million a day to service a debt. That is outrageous and clearly we must focus on that. However, a way around the challenge is the one that I have presented to the Economic Secretary to the Treasury,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Controlling Migration (23 Nov 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: There are many approved, well established and highly reputable English language schools in my constituency. I support much of the statement's content, but I am profoundly concerned about any further delay in sorting the problem with people coming to the UK to study English at such schools. I urge the Home Secretary to agree to meet me, a cross-party delegation of MPs and the Immigration...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism Industry (Eastbourne) (29 Nov 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: The Minister mentioned that Eastbourne is famed for its record amount of sunshine. Is he aware that it was also ranked No. 1 in a survey of the friendliest holiday towns in the UK? Will he join me in praising those who work in Eastbourne's hospitality industry, and will he and his ministerial colleagues accept my invitation to take their next summer holiday in the sunniest town in Britain?

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Local Government Funding (6 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: Talking of hypocrisy, does the right hon. Lady agree with her party's leader, the right hon. Member for Doncaster Central, who said on the "Today" programme in April, "as we look forward" regeneration spending is "not the biggest priority we face" as there are "other competing priorities."? Is that not hypocrisy writ large?

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Local Government Funding (6 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: In the past 12 months, Eastbourne borough council restructured its senior management, producing a more dynamic and customer-focused team, while cutting the cost of its senior team by £300,000 a year. Does the Secretary of State agree that other local authorities can follow the example of Eastbourne borough council, saving money for the taxpayer and bringing local authority executive pay...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (13 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: Will the Minister update me on the progress of the reserved forces review, mentioned in the SDSR, and confirm that there will be no cuts to 56 Signal Squadron? It is partly based in my constituency, and I personally had the good fortune to witness the skill and dedication of its members during the cold snap, when, if it had not been for them, I think my local hospital would have struggled to...

Bill Presented: Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill (13 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: I pay tribute to many who have spoken this evening, including my hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon), who made a number of rational and intelligent suggestions in respect of the Australian system that I have not heard before, which I commend. I also pay tribute to the police force in my constituency. I work closely with it, and spoke with the operational commander on Sunday...

Bill Presented: Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill (13 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and I thank him for his intervention. The overall statistics show that well over 50% of violent crimes involve alcohol. It is absolutely shocking. A number of colleagues talked about the cheap price of alcohol. The right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz) declared that he did not drink cheap drinks or what-have-you-I am sure that he does not, and...

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Legal aid (14 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: I understand and appreciate that there is some merit in the Government's decision to simplify legal aid and that the costs in recent years have spiralled and become unsustainable, particularly at a time like this. Considering what the hon. Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) has said, however, I feel that the decision has not really been fully thought through. The impact to local legal...

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Legal aid (14 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. Although the overall legal aid budget has spiralled out of control, I have real concerns about the Government's proposals-they are based on the previous Government's proposals, which is one of the ironies-for changing legal aid. I do have concerns, which I why I am here this morning.

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Legal aid (14 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention. That is a fair comment, and I certainly will not dispute the facts of what she says. I was talking about the upwards of £250,000 that the two charities in Eastbourne stand to lose. They use that funding to support more than 1,500 of the town's most vulnerable residents with complex debt, benefit and housing problems, many of which have been...

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Legal aid (14 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: That is a fair point, and I look forward to hearing exactly how the Minister will respond. I recognise that these are difficult economic times and that the Ministry of Justice faces incredibly difficult budgetary decisions. However, I am concerned that without a clear alternative for resourcing and supporting preventive advice in particular, the proposals will increase the demands not only on...
