Report from the House of Commons Reform Committee on Rebuilding the House (22 Feb 2010)

John Stanley: If the hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I want to finish making this point. The House has very limited control over secondary legislation. Sadly, and very seriously, the convention to which I referred has been completely torn to shreds by this present Government. If the House wants an example, I give it section 2 of the Fiscal Responsibility Act 2010, which has very recently gone on to the...

Maidstone East Line ( 6 Jan 2010)

John Stanley: Almost exactly four years ago, on 14 December 2005, I initiated a debate in this House on the integrated Kent rail franchise, which had just been awarded to Govia and its rail subsidiary, Southeastern.

Debate on the Address: Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and Defence (23 Nov 2009)

John Stanley: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Pontypridd (Dr. Howells), who we on the Foreign Affairs Committee remember as a Minister with a refreshing propensity to deviate from the official brief. The right hon.

He made an extremely pertinent contribution, and will be glad to know that he raised all the points that I was going to make. As always on such occasions, one is delighted to feed off the crumbs from the rich man's table. I will start with one important matter...

[Mr. Greg Pope in the Chair] — Arms Export Controls ( 5 Nov 2009)

John Stanley: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. We are on all fours with the Government on this issue, in so far as we asked for an independent study to be carried out, our recommendation was accepted and the study was carried out. Rather tantalisingly, however, and for reasons best known to them, the Government will release the study only "in due course", whatever that means. Perhaps the Minister will...

[Mr. Greg Pope in the Chair] — Arms Export Controls ( 5 Nov 2009)

John Stanley: I do not think that we have considered that specific issue in the four Committees, because we are charged with addressing policy on exports from the UK, and the British Government's policy, but the hon. Gentleman makes a perfectly valid point, and it is incumbent on all signatories of the NPT to comply with its provisions in all respects. I am sure that any evidence he has to the contrary...
