Siobhain McDonagh: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Affordable Housing (22 Oct 2002)

Siobhain McDonagh: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way. Does she agree that there is no point beseeching local authorities to use much of the land that they have, particularly brownfield sites, when they simply intend not to use such land and to keep it empty for years, as my local authority does in Merton? It is not just a question of money in London, especially south London. It is also a question of access...

Brownfield Sites (London) (13 Jun 2002)

Siobhain McDonagh: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend. He refers to a recent news letter, published after today's Adjournment debate was announced, in which the planning application was portrayed as far less industrial and more residential.

Brownfield Sites (London) (13 Jun 2002)

Siobhain McDonagh: Indeed. However, that is not the case. A thriving residential area is being dragged down not only by the poor condition of this site, but by the existence of the Marco's site 100 yd up the road, which has been empty for 12 years. Successive planning applications have failed and it remains unused. To the elderly people who live nearby, it is a source of nightmares, with frequent arson and many...

I should like to declare an interest in that I am the...

Music Industry (12 Jun 2002)

Siobhain McDonagh: No, I think that he came back. My main concern is the lack of opportunities for new bands to make live music. Through my teenage years from the age of 17, a week had not ended properly if I had not had the opportunity to see a live band in some small pub or club not far from where I lived. Many of those venues have now gone, and people now in their late teens will not be able to see the...
