Fiscal Responsibility Bill: Second Reading (10 Feb 2010)

Lord Lea of Crondall: ..." of the Labour Party as regards pensions. That is peanuts when compared with the reliance of the Conservative Party on the City of London, which can do no wrong. It is because of that fact that David Cameron is now wriggling on the end of a hook. The hubris of the City of London, after all, caused the biggest hole in the economy since 1931. Since Lehman Brothers, we have been in what I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Feb 2010)

David Cameron: May I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Corporal John Moore, Private Sean McDonald and Warrant Officer David Markland, who have been killed in Afghanistan this week? Their deaths mean that more people have now died in this conflict than were killed in the Falklands war. That is a measure of the scale of the sacrifice being made. Our armed forces need to know they have all our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: 2010-11 Spending Plans (9 Feb 2010)

Sammy Wilson: ...Alliance Party to the Tories. I know that Mr Parsley has left. Dr Farry started off talking like a Tory when he said that we did not fix the roof while the sun was shining. How often have we heard David Cameron at that one? The Member has even got Cameron’s language. You boys over on those Benches should watch out for the company that Dr Farry keeps in north Down, because you may find...

David Cameron: May I thank the Prime Minister for his statement? We support devolution in Northern Ireland and we welcome the agreement reached between the Democratic Unionists and Sinn Fein. May I start by congratulating the British and Irish Governments and, in particular, the Prime Minister on their determination in helping to bring that agreement about? As the Prime Minister will know, we have always...

National Security Strategy — Debate (4 Feb 2010)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...what such a policy would be. What does one do when the definition of objectives is difficult? One proposes a reorganisation of structures. The document does not say anything more about costs. When David Cameron launched it, I asked him how the party would manage it all in the context of sharply reducing costs. He seemed unable to answer. Last summer, William Hague remarked in a speech that...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 4) Bill: Stage 3 (3 Feb 2010)

Margo MacDonald: ...stone workers. I am sorry that, since I am short of time, I cannot say more than that. I return to a topic that came up last week: constructive suggestions. "To put it politely, Gordon Brown and David Cameron are being less than candid about what it will take to fix Britain's public finances." That view was expressed in the Financial Times on Tuesday and it is accurate. My first suggestion...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Feb 2010)

David Cameron: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Corporal Liam Riley and Lance Corporal Graham Shaw, who were killed in Helmand on Monday. They were both very brave men. Everyone should be proud of their service and we should all honour their memory. Is it not becoming clear from the Chilcot inquiry that the Government in general, and the Prime Minister in particular, made a series of bad...

Constitutional Reform — Debate (28 Jan 2010)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...with this issue. There is a small group of people who are determined to get back into power and who are quite willing to override their own party. I cherish the memory of someone quite close to David Cameron who, 18 months ago, said in a debate with some of us, "You can forget about the Conservative Party. We have taken it over". In the way in which it is forcing candidates onto...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Political Parties: Funding (28 Jan 2010)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: To ask Her Majesty's Government how much public money is paid to David Cameron to run the office of the Leader of the Opposition; for what purposes such funds can be used; and whether any recent requests have been made to alter the level of funding or the arrangements for using the funds.

Equality Bill: Committee (5th Day) (27 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...amendment but it comes with the authority-if I may put it like that-of the other political parties, although I accept the comments of the noble Baroness about the views of the right honourable David Cameron about sexual orientation and so on. This is not to do with quotas. We do not want the sort of quotas referred to by the noble Lord, Lord Alton. What we are attempting to do, as was said...

Scottish Parliament: Prescription Charges (21 Jan 2010)

Jamie Hepburn: ...a return to a privatised system of medical care—a system in which families scrimped and saved and feared the day when one of their own required medical treatment. "We can't go on like this," says David Cameron. I entirely agree with that sentiment. We should have the powers of independence—the full control of our resources that will allow us to transform the national health service and...

Climate Change and Renewable Energy — Question for Short Debate (20 Jan 2010)

Baroness Wilcox: ...for its insightful report. The Conservative Party fully supported the Northern Ireland Act 2006 in its passage through Parliament. Since the beginning of this leadership, my right honourable friend David Cameron, the leader of the Opposition in another place, has made it clear that moving Britain to a low-carbon economy will be a key task of a Conservative Government. That is important for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Security and Counter-terrorism (20 Jan 2010)

David Cameron: I thank the Prime Minister for his statement. There is much in it that we welcome. We particularly welcome the emphasis on the national security approach-something that we have consistently called for over the past four years. I want to ask the Prime Minister about four areas in particular: the radicalisation of young British Muslims; how to increase security at our borders; international...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jan 2010)

David Cameron: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Corporal Lee Brownson and Rifleman Luke Farmer. They died serving our country. We must honour their memory and we must look after the loved ones whom they have left behind. Everyone in the House, and in the whole country, has been touched by the scale of the tragedy in Haiti. We can be proud of the British response: the public, who have donated...

Scottish Parliament: Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (14 Jan 2010)

David McLetchie: ...of the Parliament and will involve our institutions fully in discussions on important policy issues that—as in this case—clearly have consequences for devolved and reserved responsibilities. David Cameron has made that pledge and his Government will most certainly honour it.

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Education, Training and Skills (13 Jan 2010)

David Lammy: ...was proposed by the Opposition 18 months ago. They wanted to do that 18 months ago-before the further, deeper, quicker, faster cuts that were called for by the right hon. Member for Witney (Mr. Cameron) on "The Andrew Marr Show" at the weekend. That would mean that there was absolutely nothing to support advanced manufacturing, nothing to support the low-carbon industries that we need for...
