Royal Assent: G20 Summit (2 Apr 2009)

Christopher Chope: As a result of the G20, to what extent will the growth in the United Kingdom's economy be restored sooner than would otherwise be the case? Can the Chancellor put a figure on that, in terms of days or months? This is the sort of question to which my constituents want an answer, given that unemployment in my constituency has risen by 184 per cent. in a single year.

Business of the House: Rating and Valuation (S.I., 2009, No. 204) (1 Apr 2009)

Christopher Chope: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You will have noticed that the last Division, which was totally under the control of the Government, took 20 minutes. Do you think that that had anything to do with the fact that I wish to speak on motion 7 on the Order Paper?

Registration of Births and Deaths (Welsh Language): Geneva Conventions and United Nations Personnel (Protocols) Bill [ Lords] (1 Apr 2009)

Christopher Chope: Mr. Deputy Speaker, that last result that you read out will be of great interest to people outside the House. We are increasingly getting a reputation for wanting to curtail our proceedings, but that vote shows that no fewer than 103 of our colleagues want the House to sit on May day bank holiday in order to hold the Government to account. I want to express my disappointment that my hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Dunfermline Building Society (30 Mar 2009)

Christopher Chope: My hon. Friend the shadow Chancellor asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer a specific question about the maximum taxpayer exposure as a result of what has happened. I should be grateful if the Chancellor could either explain why he will not answer that question, or answer it now.

Public Bill Committee: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill: Clause 194 (26 Mar 2009)

Public Bill Committee: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill: Clause 192 (26 Mar 2009)

Christopher Chope: The hon. Gentleman is right to anticipate that I do not intend to have a separate clause stand part debate.

Public Bill Committee: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill: Clause 191 (26 Mar 2009)

Christopher Chope: Order. I interrupt the hon. Gentleman now because clause 191 merely introduces schedule 13. I think the hon. Gentleman intends to speak to the contents of that schedule. If that is so, the time to do that is in the next debate, which will be on the question that schedule 13 be the 13th schedule to the Bill. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will keep his remarks on the clause brief.

Business of the House: Council Tax (26 Mar 2009)

Christopher Chope: The Government promised to bring in proposals for reform of the local government superannuation pension scheme by 1 March. What has happened to those proposals, and does the Minister accept that what he has been saying is far too complacent? Collectively, local authorities have record levels of debt and unsustainable pension schemes. There is tremendous resentment among ordinary council tax...

Public Bill Committee: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill: New Clause 21 (26 Mar 2009)

Christopher Chope: Before I put the question, I wish to express my very great appreciation to my co-Chairman for all her work in Committee. I must congratulate her on her foresight in accepting so readily my invitation, which I gave to her almost 24 hours ago, to take over the Chair from 4 o’clock on Thursday. I do not think that even she could have realised the extent to which that obligation would...

Public Bill Committee: Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill: Clause 237 (26 Mar 2009)

Christopher Chope: We now come to clause 237 stand part. It was proposed provisionally that that should be discussed along with Government amendments 560 and 561 and Government new clause 28, which were all tabled on Tuesday. If the Committee were meeting next Tuesday, they would not have been starred. But because we are effectively still meeting on Thursday 26 March, those amendments are starred. As I...
