Business of the House (14 Jul 2005)

Mark Harper: The Leader of the House will be aware that the level of council tax is a concern across the country. Yesterday's statement on the changes to the local government pension scheme will have concerned my constituents and, I am sure, other hon. Members' constituents, who fear another council tax hike.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: Dedicated Schools Grant (14 Jul 2005)

Mark Harper: Gloucestershire spends more on schools than the Government formula suggests. Can the Secretary of State assure me that once the transitional period is over the plans will not reduce the amount of funding that would otherwise have gone to our schools?

Committees — Administration Committee (13 Jul 2005)

Mark Harper: The Minister's example illustrates why some Members are confused. It would be straightforward to set a limit of two terms or eight years, whichever was the greater, but it makes no sense and is very confusing if someone who is selected to chair a Select Committee part way through a Parliament can get those extra few years, in addition to another two terms. If we are to have a rule, it should...

Committees — Administration Committee (13 Jul 2005)

Mark Harper: I want to make one point, which, given the time that we have left, I hesitate to dwell on. I would be grateful if the Minister elaborated on the term limits for Chairmen. As a new Member, I am still not entirely clear on exactly the period that one can serve. We need to clarify when in a Parliament that period starts so that we are clear about the exact time that someone can serve. That point...

Office of the Deputy Prime Minister: Affordable Housing ( 6 Jul 2005)

Mark Harper: The Forest of Dean district local plan is currently on the Deputy Prime Minister's desk awaiting approval.

Telecommunications Masts (28 Jun 2005)

Mark Harper: On that final point, we had such a case in my constituency, next to a school—in fact, it was on a site that the local education authority owned and had let out to the mobile phone operator. The school did not get any of the benefit, and because of the permitted development rights the local community was not consulted. The only person who was consulted was one of the local district...

Orders of the Day — Regulation of Financial Services (Land Transactions) Bill (23 Jun 2005)

Mark Harper: I begin by echoing the comments made by my hon. Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Hollobone) about how long it has taken to get this Bill before the House. The Opposition, in the person of my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Mr. O'Brien), have been calling for the measure since January 2003. I also echo what my hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs. Miller) said. A number of...

Special Schools and Special Educational Needs (22 Jun 2005)

Mark Harper: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Sheerman). I urge the Government Whips to set up the Select Committees as early as possible. I would certainly be very pleased if the Opposition Whips allowed me to serve on the Select Committee on Education and Skills, and I would have great pleasure in voting for the hon. Gentleman as its Chairman. I share something with the...

Licensing Act ( 8 Jun 2005)

Mark Harper: As well as the impact of the Licensing Act, is my hon. Friend aware of the impact of the Private Security Industry Act 2001? These Acts create a double whammy for the Coleford music festival in my constituency—a volunteer-run festival—putting a huge burden of cost on it. The future of the event is in jeopardy.

Health and Education (24 May 2005)

Mark Harper: It is with some considerable honour and humility that I rise to make my maiden speech: honour because it is a great privilege to be elected to the House and humility as I contemplate the trust put in me by the electors of the Forest of Dean. I start on a note of agreement with my immediate predecessor from the Labour Benches. In her maiden speech, she took issue with two of her hon....
