Conor McGinn: My hon. Friend is getting to the fundamental point. This week, Merseyside Road Safety Partnership announced a strategy to reduce road deaths dramatically by 2020, but I am sure he will agree that preventive measures are useful and good only if those who cause death by dangerous driving know that they will be dealt with harshly by the law.
Conor McGinn: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how many bodies were in receipt of funding from the Regional Development Fund in (a) St Helens North constituency, (b) St Helens local authority area, (c) Liverpool City Region, (d) the North West and (e) England in each year for which that fund operated; and how much each such body received in each such year.

Conor McGinn: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many job centres will close to the public before the lease on their premises expires in the next three years.
Conor McGinn: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth South (Stephen Morgan) on an excellent maiden speech. Modesty prevented him from telling the House that he more than doubled the Labour vote, going from third to first and winning the seat for Labour for the first time since the seat’s creation in 1918. He has a bright future in the House, I think, and I look forward to him being...
Conor McGinn: I am very rarely accused of modesty, so I shall certainly take that compliment. I did have one occasion to act as midwife when our daughter arrived slightly more quickly than expected. As I said to her godmother, my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham, Deptford (Vicky Foxcroft), it is not something that I intend to repeat, and I certainly would not recommend it to the untrained. It was in...
Conor McGinn: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. In the last half hour, the Department for Work and Pensions has made available a written statement outlining the closure of jobcentres across the country, which will lead to the loss of 750 jobs, including jobs at Newton-le-Willows jobcentre in my constituency. The story was briefed to the media earlier today, but no Minister has come to the House to...
Conor McGinn: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what her Department's policy is on the admissions criteria adopted by Catholic state-funded schools.
Conor McGinn: This crisis has meandered across six months, two elections and, as of today, two and a half missed deadlines, but I still do not get any sense of urgency from the Secretary of State. There is a time for passive observation and there is a time for intensive intervention; why will the Prime Minister not go to Belfast with the Taoiseach and find a resolution to this that we all want to see?
Conor McGinn: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what plans his Department has to review regulations on the purchase of (a) leasehold properties and (b) the sale of freeholds to third parties by property developers.

Conor McGinn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what his Department's strategy and targets are for the remediation of contaminated land.
Conor McGinn: The funding crisis in the NHS has reached new heights today, with reports of a hospital trust asking full-time nurses to register and set up as sole traders so that it can avoid paying employers’ national insurance contributions. Will the Leader of the House ask the Health Secretary to investigate this matter urgently and assure us that this outrageous practice is unacceptable and has...
