Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: Will the Minister answer a simple question for me? He has already talked about return on investment. If people have contracted with a company to receive broadband at a certain speed but they then suffer slow speeds, poor connections and constant drop-out, they receive no return on their investment. How can they get their bills adjusted to reflect what they receive, because there is a definite...

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: I thank the Minister very much indeed. Will he do that in the next few weeks, while he has still got the power?

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: Can the Minister comment on what appears to be utterly anti-competitive behaviour? I have written down in my notes some fairly serious allegations, and this story has been covered in both the Western Morning News and the Western Daily Press. It is claimed that BT said it would withdraw from the tender process for the contract for Connecting Devon and Somerset if CDS did not use the Broadband...

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: As I understand it, in the national parks, parts of Exmoor and Dartmoor have been parcelled off, so that the contracts for those areas can be tendered competitively. Ironically the suppliers there have to confirm that they are not participating in any “anti-competitive activities” and they have to sign a “certificate of non-collusion”—

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: I am afraid that I do not share the optimism of my colleague the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish) about what will happen in Devon and Somerset. The Government’s own figures show that only 41% of residents and businesses in Somerset have access to superfast broadband. That goes nowhere near meeting the needs of local people or rural businesses in my constituency....

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: Okay. Effective, reliable and affordable broadband is essential to keep people connected and ensure that our rural economy prospers. I do not understand how providing superfast rural broadband appears to mean strengthening the broadband in towns, where we have some coverage already, while coverage peters out as we move into rural areas. Surely, the whole point of rural broadband should have...

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: I thank the Minister for that clarification. If he has information about where that will happen, that leads me to my next question. Every time I have asked where the not spots are, I have been given all kinds of maps showing different colours. Most of my constituency is under consideration, or somebody is looking at the plumbing, or whatever. It seems unlikely that anyone will be able to make...

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: I tend to agree. Rather than looking at percentages, we should look at people. Back in the 1980s—I can remember all of this—we had British Rail trying to move trains from A to B and forgetting that its job was to move passengers from A to B. Exactly the same lack of focus on people has led us to where we are with broadband. When my children were in senior school, they found the...

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: The hon. Gentleman has taken the words right out of my mouth. I hope the Minister will be in a position to address our concerns.

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: I am pleased that the Minister is so keen, but I take your point, Sir Alan. My next point relates to the consequences of using the closed tender option in the Connecting Devon and Somerset bid. It is likely that all the confidentiality clauses required by BT, which shrouded the phase 1 programme, will carry straight over into phase 2. There can, therefore, be no demonstration of value for...

Broadband — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (4 Mar 2015)

Tessa Munt: I briefly intervene to say that there is no such thing as Government money or council money; it is all taxpayers’ money and that is why those responsible have to be held to account.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Weather: Health Education (3 Mar 2015)
