Steve McCabe: ...we regard as essential exceptions. Why is it that shops that sell intoxicating liquor are exempted? There is nothing vital or essential about them.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Mar 2001)

Michael Fallon: That is an uncharitable view. More fully, the sentence states that the Government will remove VAT on the purchase of adult cycle helmets … to encourage people to cycle more and improve road safety".

Simon Hughes: ...have put up one sign. That was unproductive enough in itself, but the local authority was so unreconstructed that signs were put up everywhere. We had a blitz one summer, and put up signs to stop people cycling on pavements.
