Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Secretary of State for Scotland (Meetings) (5 May 2010)

Alex Salmond: ...position of having to cut funding from the thousands of volunteer places that are supported around Scotland at the moment. If Annabel Goldie can use her influence to persuade George Osborne or David Cameron to answer the simple question that they have been asked over the past four weeks about whether they intend to tear up the current funding arrangements for Scotland without the consent...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Tidy Northern Ireland Day (4 May 2010)

Alastair Ross: ...good at bringing that knowledge home with them. I was somewhat surprised that Mr Kinahan concentrated on the role of government, particularly the recent Conservative campaign that features what David Cameron likes to call the big society. In that sense, we can buy into the notion that everybody in society is responsible for their actions. However, that individual responsibility has been...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Engagements (29 Apr 2010)

Iain Gray: ...cut of all—cutting a deal with the Tories. We should not be surprised, because the SNP's London leader, Angus Robertson, votes with the Tories more often than Scotland's only Tory MP does. David Cameron's local champion must be Alex Salmond, who voted with David Cameron 70 per cent of the time. Alex Salmond could not get out of his bed to vote for the national minimum wage, but he gets...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Quangos and Arm’s-length Bodies of Government Departments (27 Apr 2010)

Alastair Ross: ...expensive bodies. The amount of money that is spent on quangos and arm’s-length bodies is in particularly sharp focus. Over the past couple of days, we have heard a lot about the comments that David Cameron made at the weekend. He said that £200 million could be slashed immediately from the Northern Ireland Budget. That sort of thing brings into focus the areas in which our money is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Local Government (Finance) Bill: Second Stage (27 Apr 2010)

Edwin Poots: ...that we got on Friday night when Northern Ireland was compared to eastern Europe. I do not think that a comparison can be made between Northern Ireland and the Ceauşescu regime in Romania. Mr Cameron paid the Northern Ireland community a gross insult when he compared us to Eastern bloc countries such as Romania under the Ceauşescu regime. There will be no big shocks coming here. What...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Development of a Jobs Strategy (26 Apr 2010)

Peter Weir: ...sector jobs. Today, a spokesperson reading out a prepared text on behalf on the Conservative and Ulster Unionist parties said that they will not slash public sector spending or jobs. However, David Cameron and Reg Empey are inextricably linked, and rather than trying to prevent the slashing of public sector jobs, they are the Freddy Kruegers of the Northern Ireland economy: cutting,...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Prime Minister (Meetings) (15 Apr 2010)

Alex Salmond: ...extent throughout the next few years, and indeed over the many years in which the SNP will be in government. Annabel Goldie chose not to pick up the key point that the spokesman for her party, David Cameron, and her shadow chancellor, have been making over the past two weeks: the revelation that, in addition to the billions of pounds of cuts that are to be "tougher and deeper" than those...

Finance Bill: Second Reading (and remaining stages) (8 Apr 2010)

Lord Myners: ...of that were to place important front-line programmes at risk and mean that you had to rely on entirely ephemeral savings through efficiency-savings through efficiency which the right honourable David Cameron and the right honourable George Osborne were dismissing in the past as not being a sensible basis for making a tax gesture-then these businesspeople might give a slightly different...

Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill: Committee (and remaining stages) (7 Apr 2010)

Lord Steel of Aikwood: ...place after a long debate. The issue has been fully debated. I say to the noble Lord, Lord Strathclyde, who is not rising from his place in response to my noble friend, that I now feel sorry for David Cameron. Here he is, about to enter an election campaign saying that he has modernised the Conservative Party, and it is seriously going to maintain that in the 21st century people should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Apr 2010)

David Cameron: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Guardsman Michael Sweeney and Rifleman Mark Turner, who have been killed in Afghanistan in the past week. Two hundred and eighty British servicemen and women and Ministry of Defence civilians have now lost their lives while serving in Afghanistan. As we prepare for the end of this Parliament, we should remember the sacrifice that they and their...

Amendment of the Law (30 Mar 2010)

Liam Byrne: ...and Furness (Mr. Hutton), as well as the hon. Member for Teignbridge (Richard Younger-Ross), my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. Betts) and the hon. Member for Upper Bann (David Simpson), echoed that point. This afternoon, my hon. Friend the Member for Thurrock (Andrew Mackinlay) made the same point in his valedictory speech, as did my hon. Friend the Member for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: European Council (29 Mar 2010)

David Cameron: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Rifleman Daniel Holkham and Lance Corporal of Horse Jonathan Woodgate, who have been killed in Afghanistan in the past few days. When one thinks of what Jonathan Woodgate had already been through, it is a reminder of what an exceptionally brave young man he was. It also reminds us that what we ask of our servicemen and women today is exceptional;...

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Police Community Support Officers (25 Mar 2010)

David Hanson: ...appreciate it and value it. The right hon. Gentleman apparently does not and the hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell is apparently not yet convinced. When asked, the right hon. Member for Witney (Mr. Cameron) said that he would no longer demand a fixed amount of money to be spent on PCSOs. Far be it from me to intrude on private policy discussions within the Opposition, but I would certainly...

Teenage Pregnancies — Question (25 Mar 2010)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, did the Minister wonder, as I did this week, about the quality of sex education in our independent schools when David Cameron, in reference to his wife's pregnancy, said: "Sometimes it takes a while before the stork pops one down the chimney".? More seriously, can the Minister tell the House what measures the Government have taken to make teenage boys more responsible in their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (24 Mar 2010)

David Cameron: So there we have it-Labour's big idea is a stamp duty cut on homes worth less than £250,000. Where on earth did they get that one from? That has been Tory policy for three years. The Chancellor came in copying our inheritance tax cut. He leaves as Chancellor copying our stamp duty cut. The only new ideas in British politics are coming from the Opposition. The only things that Labour brings...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Mar 2010)

David Cameron: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Serjeant Steven Campbell, who died in Helmand on Monday. We are paying a high price in Afghanistan, and our troops and their families need to know that they have all our support. Our prayers and thoughts are with those who will not come home. This is likely to be the second last Prime Minister's questions before the general election, and clearly...

Energy Bill — Second Reading (23 Mar 2010)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...with the White Paper in 2008. We have a decisive policy. We have a very exciting prospect of developing new nuclear power stations. I would point out to the noble Lord that it was his leader Mr David Cameron who said: "I think my policy, green energy first, nuclear as a last resort, is absolutely right". Then of course during a leadership hustings he called offshore wind farms "bird...

Northern Ireland Act 1998 (Devolution of Policing and Justice Functions) Order 2010 — Motion to Approve (23 Mar 2010)

Lord Glentoran: ...supported the legislation this time last year, even though we believed that, with a little more time, it could have been improved. It is why my right honourable friend the Leader of the Opposition, David Cameron, met the First and Deputy First Ministers in the autumn and rapidly pledged that, should we win the election, we would honour the substantial, post-dated financial package agreed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Mar 2010)

David Cameron: May I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to the soldier from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment who died at Selly Oak on Monday after serving his country in Afghanistan and to the two other soldiers from the same regiment who were killed yesterday? Anyone who has been to Selly Oak knows the brilliant work that the staff do there and everyone should pay tribute to them. The...

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Higher Education (16 Mar 2010)

David Lammy: ..., which is our 50 per cent. aspiration. It is not clear but a transformation has apparently been undertaken by the hon. Member for Havant. My concern is that the right hon. Member for Witney (Mr. Cameron) is, as is the case on many things, much less clear about the 50 per cent. aspiration. He once went on record saying that his party opposed the aim and, most recently, he was asked about...
