Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill: New Clause 3 (19 Feb 2008)

David Borrow: Will my hon. and learned Friend put on the record the fact that although the link has not been restored for the basic state pension, we look forward to that being done as soon as possible, and the Government have made progress in restoring the link for the pension credit?

Written Answers — Northern Ireland: Prisoners: Contraceptives (19 Feb 2008)

David Borrow: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will ensure that condoms are made available in prisons in Northern Ireland to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill: Clause 62 ( 5 Feb 2008)

David Borrow: Bearing in mind what has been said, does my hon. Friend think that, by the time that we discuss the Bill on Report, PADA will have reached such a point in its deliberations that he will be able to inform the House in a way that would be helpful to all hon. Members and give them the reassurance that the majority of members of the Committee clearly need?

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill: Clause 49 (31 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: Could my hon. and learned Friend reassure me that should the problems raised by the hon. Gentleman turn out to be true once the legislation has gone through and is up and running, the Minister will be able to remedy the problems quickly without bringing forward primary legislation—to do it by regulation rather than legislation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Infrastructure (Lancashire) (22 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: What assistance her Department will provide to enable the transport infrastructure in central Lancashire to cope with the impact of local housing growth.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Infrastructure (Lancashire) (22 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Central Lancashire is one of the most buoyant parts of the north-west. It has the potential for considerable economic and housing growth, but that can take place only if the transport infrastructure south of Preston is dealt with properly. Will she ensure that Lancashire county council gives that adequate consideration? When the regional...

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill (17 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: I was not implying that either of your organisations should try to give the information.

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill (17 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: What I am trying to probe is whether or not your organisations have the capacity to help the Government tailor the communications message in the most effective manner. That is the key thing.

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill (17 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: I want to touch again on the question of communications. One of the things that has always struck me about Government-business relationships is that Government are very good at communicating with large companies, and large companies have the resources to communicate with Government. Therefore, models and systems are set up which are suitable for large companies. Organisations such as your...

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill (17 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: I would like to go back to this issue of uncertainty and your modelling of groups that were at risk of being better off opting out than opting in. I understand that point in relation to groups in their 50s or 60s, because the date of retirement is touchable. But the other part of uncertainty is the value of the state pension. It is interesting that many people in their 20s and 30s assume that...

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill: Written Evidence to be reported to the House (15 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: I want to come back to the issue of flexibility. I think that most people would instinctively feel that we should have the maximum amount of flexibility, whether that is a matter of people with multiple jobs being able to put income from all of those jobs into one pot or people who have money left to them being able to put that into a personal account, or a whole range of other things that we...

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill: Written Evidence to be reported to the House (15 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: It has been suggested that we could amend the scheme to allow some variation in the level of contributions from both employers and employees in a risk-sharing system. I am interested in your views on those proposals and whether there is any merit in exploring them further.

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill: Written Evidence to be reported to the House (15 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: Would it be correct to say that your view is that we should introduce these schemes and get things bedded down, and that if seven years down the track people want to discuss risk sharing and other areas, we could look at it again once we know how the proposed new system is actually working?

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill (15 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: You have already made it clear that this is very much work in progress, and you argued earlier the benefits of keeping it simple. To what extent have you been able to look at lessons from overseas, or are planning to do so  in the future? I would raise specifically the KiwiSaver scheme in New Zealand.

Public Bill Committee: Pensions Bill (15 Jan 2008)

David Borrow: To what extent is the involvement with systems overseas of benefit in terms of designing the internal system, but also in terms of giving Ministers advice about the complexity and simplicity argument? Ministers may wish to have complexity to deal with fairness issues that have been raised. Do you consider that lessons could be learned from overseas experience that might assist you in your...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Youth Volunteering (12 Dec 2007)

David Borrow: Lancashire police have been very successful in recruiting volunteers. Will my hon. Friend look at ways to enable them to increase the number of young volunteers who are working with the police to give a good service to the people of Lancashire?

Written Answers — Duchy of Lancaster: Youth Volunteering (12 Dec 2007)

David Borrow: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what support the Government plans to provide to encourage more young people to volunteer.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (13 Nov 2007)

David Borrow: I would like to raise an issue with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. He has made it clear that when the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is considering whether a drug should be made available on the NHS, primary care trusts should consider any application to use that drug on the basis of medicine rather than finance. However, concerns were raised with me about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Intergovernmental Conference (Lisbon) (22 Oct 2007)

David Borrow: When members of the European Scrutiny Committee, including me, looked at these issues, we raised legitimate concerns about the firmness of some of the red lines. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the appropriate place for those to be debated and discussed is in this Chamber, by Members of Parliament elected to scrutinise such treaties? Will he confirm that there will be sufficient time for...

Opposition Day — [17th allotted day]: Alleged Overseas Corruption (16 Jul 2007)

David Borrow: My argument is not that the investigation should be halted because of the number of jobs at stake; it is that because the investigation has been stopped on proper and appropriate legal grounds, those who object to and disagree with the decision are putting employment in the defence industry at risk by continuing to challenge the decision and publicise their opposition to it.
