Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Regulatory Burden (Farmers) (9 Dec 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: I thank the Minister for that reply. Farmers in Stratford-on-Avon will welcome the Government's commitment to the industry-led review of regulation. Can he give farmers a time frame for the review, so that they can begin to enjoy a regime that makes it easier for them to produce the food that we eat and care for the countryside that we all cherish?

Business of the House (Thursday) (8 Dec 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: The shadow Leader of the House waxes eloquent tonight. Would it not be more credible to be honest with the House and say that stopping free education is not a smaller issue than the one we will debate tomorrow? That is what his Government did.

Business of the House (Thursday) (8 Dec 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: Absolutely. [ Interruption. ]

Business of the House (Thursday) (8 Dec 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: The shadow Leader has just told the House that what we are debating tomorrow is of greater consequence than the reneged promise that his Government delivered upon, which abolished free education altogether. That is a wrong thing to tell the House. Will he explain himself?

Business of the House (Thursday) (8 Dec 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: rose -

Business of the House (Thursday) (8 Dec 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: Does the right hon. Gentleman not agree that ending the debate tomorrow at 5.30 pm will provide ample time for the Leader of the Opposition to join the protestors outside?

Business of the House (25 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: May we have a debate on unaccounted Government spending, and on how that can happen? Bearing in mind the irrational decision making that the shadow Leader of the House mentioned, can we make the specific subject of the debate the £38 billion committed by the Ministry of Defence over 10 years without accountability?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Localism Bill (25 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: When he plans to publish the localism Bill.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Localism Bill (25 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: I was pleased to hear the Secretary of State confirm that material consideration should be given by councils to circular 01/06 on Gypsies and Travellers, although some, including mine, have not been doing so. May I ask the Minister to outline what benefits that will present to neighbourhoods and to villages such as Welford-in-Avon in my constituency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Financial Assistance (Ireland) (22 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: People at home will be listening to this statement or they will read it tomorrow and wonder whether we can borrow a few more billion and spend a few more billion. Does the Chancellor agree that market concerns over sovereign debt remain, and that the priority for the coalition Government must be to keep the UK out of the financial danger zone?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: NATO Summit (22 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: Did the Prime Minister have a chance to discuss with President Obama and others in NATO the very worrying news coming out of North Korea of the discovery of a state-of-the-art uranium enrichment plant?

Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill (19 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: My hon. Friend makes precisely the point about which the shadow Minister was confused. The procurement officers will not be compelled to do something from the top down, but will have the same choices before them as they have always had. Rather, they will be asked to look imaginatively at those choices. We are talking about benevolent libertarianism and a nudge forward-not what the shadow...

Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill (19 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Chris White) on introducing this Bill. Two Fridays ago in Stratford-on-Avon we held a big society day. Local government attended and we had standing room only. Two things emerged. First, what Government can do is to provide-in business terms-the mission statement. Secondly, that mission statement then needs to be...

Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill (19 Nov 2010)

Nadhim Zahawi: Now. Second Reading.

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

Nadhim Zahawi: Does my hon. Friend agree that if the previous Government had acted, and acted sooner, more compensation would have been payable to the victims?

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

Nadhim Zahawi: The mere fact that it is 10 November 2010 and I am standing here delivering a speech on Third Reading is something of which I am incredibly proud. This is a sobering Bill, which is long overdue. I thought in Committee that I heard the shadow Minister apologise, but, sadly, I know from listening to his remarks that he obviously has no remorse. Behind him are the hon. Members for Foyle (Mark...

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

Nadhim Zahawi: I will test the Financial Secretary's arithmetic a little further. Has he worked out what that advantage is over and above the £1.5 billion?

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

Nadhim Zahawi: Is it not precisely the point that, rather than being an open-ended compensation scheme, the scheme relates to malpractice?

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

Nadhim Zahawi: What action would my hon. Friend recommend? My hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff North mentioned the possibility of people being judged to have received too much. Should we take that money away from them? The malpractice took place in 1991, and we should be talking about 1991, not about 1992 or about an open-ended process.

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

Nadhim Zahawi: My hon. Friend is quite right: the figure is £4.3 billion. I, too, have wrestled with the problem. In the current economic climate, offering £1.5 billion to the victims is fair and it delivers on the promise that many of us have signed up to. I hope that many colleagues will support the Government to expedite the process and finally get money flowing to the victims, which we hope will...
