Public Bill Committee: Debt Relief (Developing Countries) Bill: Clause 9 (9 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: Obviously, what the right hon. Gentleman has said is in order, but it is slightly premature because we still have two new clauses to deal with.

Public Bill Committee: Debt Relief (Developing Countries) Bill (9 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: Good morning everybody. I am delighted to see an army of volunteers here today to participate in consideration of the Bill. This is the first time I have had the privilege of chairing a Committee on a private Member’s Bill, so it is a novel experience for me. Before we start, I wish to make a couple of announcements. If people wish, they can remove their jackets, and if they have mobile...

Public Bill Committee: Debt Relief (Developing Countries) Bill: Clause 1 (9 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: It is an acceptable parliamentary expression. As far as this intervention is concerned, may I remind the Committee that we are considering a very narrow amendment? During the intermission, perhaps the hon. Member for Banbury might like to look at the Hansard report of Second Reading to bring himself up to date.

Prayers: Grocery Market Ombudsman Bill (5 Mar 2010)

Business of the House: Chair (Terminology) (4 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: I shall speak briefly in support of the two amendments tabled in my name and that of many other right hon. and hon. Members. I am grateful for the support indicated by the Wright Committee in its guide to amendments and votes. I am also grateful to my right hon. Friend the Member for East Yorkshire (Mr. Knight), the Chairman of the Procedure Committee, for agreeing that it is logical that...

Business of the House (4 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: rose-

Points of Order (4 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Earlier today, Mr. Speaker said that any substantive criticisms of a Member of the other place should be made by way of a substantive motion, rather than by oral references. Yet you will know that throughout Prime Minister's questions yesterday and, again, today, smears and innuendos have been levelled against a noble Lord-a Member of the other...

Business of the House (4 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: Is the Leader of the House ashamed of herself for the dissembling way in which she has answered questions about the election of the Speaker following the return of Parliament? She has tabled motion 69 in her name, which is not yet available to be debated in the House. Can she assure the House that she will not withdraw-

Petitions: Bellamy's Bar Closure (1 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: This petition, the first to be presented under the new procedure, was organised by Cassian Horowitz and is supported by some 470 staff working in the House of Commons. The large number of signatures was collected over just two working days, and that demonstrates the depth of concern about the proposals. It is a great honour to present the petition on behalf of these members of staff and...

Points of Order (1 Mar 2010)

Christopher Chope: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Last Tuesday you made an important statement about new rules for petitions, beginning today. I will have the honour later this evening to present the first such petition, organised by Cassian Horowitz on behalf of hundreds of staff against the closure of Bellamy's bar. In your statement, you said: "The right to petition Parliament is one of our oldest and...

Lisbon Treaty (Referendum) Bill (26 Feb 2010)

Christopher Chope: Does the hon. Gentleman not accept that one of the biggest travesties is that during the most recent general election people did not engage in a debate about Europe because they thought they would have one in a referendum? Cynically, the Government then denied the people a referendum, so does he share my hope that Europe will feature prominently in the forthcoming general election campaign?

Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill (26 Feb 2010)

Christopher Chope: I have always been a great supporter of my hon. Friend the Member for Braintree (Mr. Newmark) and I hope that if his speech achieves nothing else, it will gain promotion for him in an incoming Conservative Government. He has served the Conservative Front Bench's purposes well today by ensuring that the amount of time available to discuss the Lisbon Treaty (Referendum) Bill and the European...

Debt Relief (Developing Countries) Bill (26 Feb 2010)

Christopher Chope: If this is such a popular measure, why does the hon. Lady think that-apart from herself, and she is promoting the Bill today-I have been the only Back-Bench contributor to this debate?

Royal Assent: Crime and Security Bill (10 Feb 2010)

Christopher Chope: I should just like to put on the record that I have not discussed my views on the matter with the Whips. I have made an independent judgment of what I want to do, and whether it be right or wrong, it is my independent judgment.

Royal Assent: House of Commons Disqualification Act 1975 (10 Feb 2010)

Christopher Chope: The Minister says that the number has fallen, but since when?

Bill Presented — Climate Change (Sectoral Targets) Bill: Sunbeds (Regulation) Bill [ Money] (9 Feb 2010)

Christopher Chope: It will not have escaped the notice of hon. Members that the Minister has not put any figures whatever on her assessment of the costs of the provision. My hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Mark Simmonds), speaking from the Front Bench, has rightly drawn attention to the figure of £88,000. It will not have escaped your notice, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that we are in an age of...
