Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: That is exactly what I was about to come to—namely, park home owners not being able to sell their homes without the consent of the park owner. In the intervening 12 months there has been progress, not least by the all-party parliamentary group and, earlier this month, when the hon. Member for Mid Dorset and North Poole (Annette Brooke) asked the Prime Minister an important question...

Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend makes an important point. The good park home site owners are unfairly gaining a poor reputation because of their less scrupulous counterparts, many of whom are reported to be not only dishonest in their dealings with park home owners but aggressive and abusive. It is sad that only a third of residents felt that their park owner was good. That clearly needs to change.

Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments. One of our problems is the lack of a level playing field or of consistency in the different parts of the UK, which can lead to a measure of resentment when some residents see other parts of the UK treated differently from them.

Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: As I said, I attended the mass rally last November and listened to many of the stories from around the country, and my hon. Friend is absolutely right that the same small number of names occur time and again at various locations—always, sadly, involving the same story and modus operandi. Time is pressing and the issue is not new, although I am new to it. Media reports can be found going...

Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: I certainly agree with my hon. Friend’s comments. It is not right that park home residents are left more vulnerable and exposed than those in many other types of property tenure. It is important not to forget that park homes can provide an important element of reasonably priced accommodation—I will not refer to affordable housing, using the technical term that we all understand...

Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point, and she is right. We must have legislation, and we must have it soon. During a conversation with Consumer Direct earlier today, it told me that it is making progress in taking on cases. As my hon. Friend said, the problem is not just anecdotal because there is now evidence. It is crucial that we have time to legislate so that these poor, vulnerable...

Park Homes (29 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend makes a good point. There is complexity in knowing who residents should go to with their complaints. There is no consistency throughout the United Kingdom, and that is what people are calling for. My constituent, Tim Deacon, like many other park home residents, has been party to establishing a park home residents association. Such groups must meet several requirements to...

Written Answers — Health: Multiple Sclerosis: Health Services (30 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether his Department plans to respond to the National Audit of Services for People with Multiple Sclerosis 2011; and what plans he has to improve (a) diagnosis and (b) access to specialised services and treatment.

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Living Standards (30 Nov 2011)

Caroline Nokes: On my hon. Friend’s point about the real difficulties that we would face if our interest rates were the same as those in Italy or Greece, does he agree that the 25,000 home owners in my constituency would face real hardship, real misery, and possibly repossession?

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Public Libraries: Fees and Charges (5 Dec 2011)

Caroline Nokes: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport how many county councils charge for the borrowing of audio books from libraries.

Written Answers — Education: Schools: Admissions (8 Dec 2011)

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Overseas Students (8 Dec 2011)

Caroline Nokes: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what his most recent estimate is of the number of lone European Economic Area students studying in the UK.

Sexual Offences (Amendment): Backbench Business — [Un-allotted Day] — Future of Town Centres and High Streets (17 Jan 2012)

Caroline Nokes: Does my hon. Friend agree that success and resilience are the result of empowering local people to make the decisions that will affect their local area, and in towns such as Romsey that is exactly what should happen when there is an out-of-town planning application for a Tesco store?

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Port of Southampton (18 Jan 2012)

Caroline Nokes: I congratulate my neighbour, the right hon. Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr Denham), on securing this important debate, and on his determination to make this a cross-party initiative to highlight the issues currently faced by the port of Southampton. As we have heard from my hon. Friend the Member for Gosport (Caroline Dinenage) and the hon. Member for Southampton, Test (Dr Whitehead),...

[Mr Mike Hancock in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Holocaust Memorial Day 2012 (19 Jan 2012)

Caroline Nokes: It is certainly a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Dorries. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon Central (Gavin Barwell) on having secured what I regard as an important debate, but it is also timely as tomorrow is the 70th anniversary of the Wannsee conference, where the horrific final solution to exterminate the entire Jewish population of Europe was...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — UK-India Trade (25 Jan 2012)

Caroline Nokes: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wimbledon (Stephen Hammond) on securing this important debate and on having led, in September, a parliamentary delegation to India, in which I was fortunate enough to participate. Coincidentally, our delegation went to India at exactly the same time as a delegation of members of the Solent India Business Network. India is a large country and we...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — UK-India Trade (25 Jan 2012)

Caroline Nokes: I thank my hon. Friend for those comments. Pune university has a staggering 650,000 undergraduates, which is an enormous number compared with Southampton university. However, that does not prevent the two institutions from working together to share business visions and fresh perspectives. My hon. Friend the Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mark Field) mentioned that young people...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — UK-India Trade (25 Jan 2012)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend makes an important point. We cannot focus just on the positives, although they are there and they are important. We must ensure that some of these issues are resolved, preferably before the Prime Minister’s visit in the summer. I hope that the initiative that we have seen in the Solent region is not the first, and that it is something that can be spread across the whole...

Micro-combined Heat and Power (1 Feb 2012)

Caroline Nokes: The UK is a world leader in all sorts of microgeneration. Is the hon. Gentleman aware that SEaB Energy on Southampton university’s science park is generating micro-power in shipping containers? That might not be on the domestic scale of boilers, but it is proof that in the UK we are world leaders at coming up with innovative ideas and working out how we can generate power on a small and...
