[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — Children and HIV/AIDS (Developing Countries) ( 7 May 2009)

David Borrow: Thank you, Sir Nicholas. I apologise to the Chamber for being late. As you said, I had a meeting with the Under-Secretary of State with responsibility for disabled people and a constituent of mine who runs a charity for the disabled in Lancashire. I travelled down especially for the meeting, and I felt that it was important that I kept it. However, as chair of the all-party AIDS group, it is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Third Sector Organisations ( 1 Apr 2009)

David Borrow: Is my right hon. Friend aware that in South Ribble, the Tory council has cut funding to a number of voluntary organisations, including the citizens advice bureau, the women's refuge, Victim Support and a charity helping young homeless people? Will he agree to look into the problem of cuts in local authority support for the voluntary sector just at the time when extra rather than less support...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Parliamentary Standards (Constitutional Reform) ( 2 Feb 2009)

David Borrow: On declaration of interest, does the hon. Gentleman agree that there should be rules about the level of outside interests that parliamentarians, whether of this or the other place, should be allowed while still maintaining their role as a Member?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pensioner Poverty ( 2 Feb 2009)

David Borrow: Many pensioners rely on interest from savings to supplement their state pension. They have seen that income drop considerably as interest rates have fallen. Will my right hon. Friend look again at the way in which the amount of savings held impacts on the range of benefits that a pensioner is entitled to receive?

Women and Equality: Automotive Industry (27 Jan 2009)

David Borrow: Can my hon. Friend confirm that the proposals he has announced today also apply to the commercial vehicles industry, and in particular to Leyland Trucks in my constituency? I urge him to work as hard as possible to get the financing arms in place, as that is crucial to bringing through more orders in the truck industry. I also ask him to work with colleagues in the Treasury and the commercial...

Flooding (South Ribble) (13 Jan 2009)

David Borrow: Will my hon. Friend clarify the priority or weighting that is given to the quality of the agricultural land affected? It is fairly obvious that a lot of the best quality arable land is in low-lying areas that are at risk of flooding unless the drainage is kept really good. If there is not investment in such land, we risk losing acres and acres of first-class arable land.

Flooding (South Ribble) (13 Jan 2009)

David Borrow: Would my hon. Friend agree that the idea of getting agencies to work together is crucial to stop that buck-passing? It happens in district areas, and in our part of our Lancashire we also have to deal with what happens when the problem is tackled well in one district but not in the next. That can have an adverse effect, to put it bluntly. If problems are not dealt with well in Chorley, that...

Flooding (South Ribble) (13 Jan 2009)

David Borrow: I welcome the opportunity to raise the issues of flooding and drainage in my South Ribble constituency. The constituency lies on the Lancashire plain between Preston and the River Ribble in the north, and Southport in the south. The land is flat and low-lying, and much of it has undergone rapid residential development in recent years. Since the 17th century, hundreds of hectares of land in...

Flooding (South Ribble) (13 Jan 2009)

David Borrow: There are various ways in which we could look to get more funding for front-line work improving the sewers, and the profits made by United Utilities is one such way. The Government need to recognise that as floods and the drainage system problems get worse, reliance on a fixed level of funding to tackle the issue means that we will not be able to keep pace with the increasing problems. I am...

Flooding (South Ribble) (13 Jan 2009)

David Borrow: Those issues were discussed at length at the public meeting that I held at Banks. Representatives of West Lancashire district council, United Utilities and the Environment Agency attended the meeting. Although the Government altered the rules a few years ago to ensure that the planning authority takes into account the concerns of the Environment Agency about flooding on the flood plain, and...

David Borrow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much funding the Government is providing to each local authority in AIDS support grant in 2008-09.

Motor Industry (17 Dec 2008)

David Borrow: The town of Leyland, in which there is a long tradition of commercial vehicle manufacturing, in particular of trucks—Leyland Trucks is one of the biggest truck manufacturers in the UK—is in my constituency. When I was elected in 1997, 600 people worked there. When I visited the plant in August, at the start of a night shift, it had record levels of production and a big order book, and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Sex and Relationships Education (17 Nov 2008)

Deferred Division: European Scrutiny (Standing Orders) (12 Nov 2008)

David Borrow: rose—

Deferred Division: European Scrutiny (Standing Orders) (12 Nov 2008)

David Borrow: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. Does he agree that at the heart of the debate is the question of whether the desirability of the Committee's holding all its sittings in public—which, if it included the advice given by Committee officials, could restrict the clarity of that advice and pose the risk that the Committee would make poorer decisions—should outweigh the fact that if the...

David Borrow: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Benefit Payments (20 Oct 2008)

David Borrow: On the question of stigma and people with HIV, surveys show that 44 per cent. of the population would expect to be told if they were working with a colleague who was HIV-positive. Does my hon. Friend recognise that, in finding jobs for people who are HIV-positive, there is a stigma in the work place and it is not just a matter of them wanting a job, but it is also a matter of the employer...
