Business of the House: Local Growth White Paper (28 Oct 2010)

Luciana Berger: Despite all the coalition's talk of localism, I am concerned to learn today that assets currently owned by RDAs are not guaranteed to remain in local ownership. Will the Secretary of State confirm that none of the assets currently owned by the RDA, such as the Wavertree technology park in my constituency, will not be sold off by his Department?

Luciana Berger: Many of the students at Liverpool's three fantastic universities have been helped by the Aimhigher programme.

Higher Education (3 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: I, too, congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) on securing this timely debate.

Many members of Liverpool's student and academic community live in my constituency. Along with my hon. Friend the...

Higher Education (3 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention; she raises some valuable points about the fantastic work that Aimhigher has done not only with young people in further education, but in schools, and I will go on to mention some of the wide range of activities that it is involved in. Most specifically, Aimhigher helps young people from families with no other members who went to university to...

Higher Education (3 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: My hon. Friend has made exactly the point I wanted to make, so I thank him. Many of my constituents talk to me now about the challenges they face because of their current debts, when fees are only a third of those proposed by the new Government. Access to higher education should be about students' ability, not the ability to pay or willingness to shoulder thousands of pounds of debt. That is...

Higher Education (3 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: I thank my hon. Friend for asking that relevant question. Given the fraction of money that will go from Aimhigher to the national scholarship fund, and the scarcity of detail in the statement about how widening will be funded, I too would be grateful to know what grant there will be.

Higher Education (3 Nov 2010)

The Communication Workers Union reports that every year between 5,000 and 6,000 of its members suffer injuries by dogs. Every month, three guide dogs are attacked. In the past three years, five children have been killed by dangerous dogs, including John Paul Massey in my constituency. Will the...

Business of the House (4 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: May I press the Leader of the House? My right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn) mentioned that the Minister for Universities and Science has said that non-STEM-science, technology, engineering and mathematics-subjects will lose their teaching grant. Yet in a Westminster Hall debate that I took part in yesterday, the Minister for Further Education, Skills and Lifelong...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — UK Software Industry (10 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that we should introduce some kind of domestic tax incentives and support not only to boost the industry, but so that we can compete on an equal playing field? Other countries across the world that produce software and video games have additional incentives for the industry, in both research and development and in the wages of people who come from abroad. Because...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — UK Software Industry (10 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: Is my hon. Friend aware that the Red Book cites the amount involved in not introducing the video games tax relief as £200 million, but that that does not take into account the net benefit of introducing a video games tax relief, which conservative estimates have put at an additional £200 million?

Energy and Climate Change: Warm Front Scheme (11 Nov 2010)

Luciana Berger: Age UK estimates that more than 3.5 million older people across the UK live in fuel poverty, and every year more than 30,000 older people die from preventable causes over the winter months-a tragedy that we should do all we can to prevent. I have spoken to Age UK about the Government's plan to phase out the Warm Front scheme and replace it with the green deal. Warm Front has so far brought...
