Pre-Budget Report 2009 — Motion to Take Note (16 Dec 2009)

Baroness Noakes: ...be tackled now. Of course we understand the view that acting too soon or too vigorously could damage the economic recovery. The noble Lord, Lord Radice, noted that my right honourable friend Mr David Cameron is fully aware of this, but we are encouraged by the fact that the Governor of the Bank of England, the CBI and the OECD, to name but a few, agree with us that the deficit should be...

Equality Bill: Second Reading (Continued) (15 Dec 2009)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...Baroness, Lady Howe of Idlicote, said that all parties were introducing all-women shortlists. We have not yet had all-women shortlists, although we have had a number by desire rather than design. David Cameron has said that he will use them if necessary. I say to the noble Baroness, Lady Gale, that the Sex Discrimination (Election Candidates) Act is not just about all-women shortlists; it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Afghanistan and the EU Council (14 Dec 2009)

David Cameron: The European Council covered three main areas: foreign affairs, the environment and economic issues. I want to ask about all three, as well as the vital issue of Afghanistan. On Afghanistan, as the Prime Minister knows, we have supported the increase in US and UK troop numbers, and, as the Prime Minister has said, at Christmas time we should all be thinking of our forces and their families. I...

Agriculture: Royal Society Report — Debate (10 Dec 2009)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...subject area. They also reflect the authority of the Royal Society's report, Reaping the Benefits. I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Rees of Ludlow, who unfortunately is not in his place, and Sir David Baulcombe, the chairman of the committee that produced this great and seminal work. It crowns the 350-year existence of the society with a work in an area of immense importance. Together...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliament (Further Powers) (9 Dec 2009)

Jeremy Purvis: ...any of the options on devolution and, while he was able to say very quickly, if I understood correctly, that his party would seek to legislate to implement the Calman proposals, Annabel Goldie, David Mundell and David Cameron have not said that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Dec 2009)

David Cameron: May I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Lance Corporal Adam Drane, who was killed in Afghanistan on Monday? The 100th military casualty this year is a very sad milestone. We should honour his memory; we should help his family. As the Prime Minister and I have both seen, when one speaks to our troops in Afghanistan, it is not sympathy and pity that they are after, but support, not...

Climate Change: Carbon Budgets — Motion to Take Note (8 Dec 2009)

Lord Marland: ...than underlying improvements and that the Government will not try to claim credit for reductions that are entirely down to the recession. This is an excellent report. My right honourable friend David Cameron has led the way in forming concrete policies to address climate change and cut emissions; many of those policies are endorsed in the report. In answer to the noble Lord, Lord Giddens,...

Future of the BBC — Debate (3 Dec 2009)

Lord Howard of Rising: ...freedom for the sale of advertising would be of considerable assistance to the industry, but this needs to be acted on promptly to avoid any necessity for subsidy. As my right honourable friend David Cameron and my honourable friend Jeremy Hunt in another place have both said, this party supports the principle of the licence fee and the BBC, but agreeing that something is overall a good...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Dec 2009)

David Cameron: May I join the Prime Minister and everyone in this House in paying tribute to Acting Sergeant John Amer, who died this week in Afghanistan? He gave his life to protect our country. We should honour his memory. We should care for his family. Before I go on to other subjects, may I ask a couple of questions about Afghanistan? Following President Obama's very welcome speech last night, the...

Written Answers — Health: Heart Diseases: Children (2 Dec 2009)

David Cameron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects to receive the report of the National Specialised Commissioning Group on children's cardiac surgery services in England; what considerations he is taking into account in respect of proposed reconfiguration of these services; and what research he has (a) commissioned and (b) evaluated on the level of specialisation required for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Final Stage (1 Dec 2009)

Stephen Farry: ...to devolution. Even today, it will oppose the Bill that puts in place an important building block for the process. That contrasts with the stance of its sister party, the Conservative Party, and David Cameron.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Afghanistan and Pakistan (30 Nov 2009)

David Cameron: I thank the Prime Minister for his statement, but before turning to Afghanistan, may I start by putting right something I got wrong last week? Although the two Islamic schools I mentioned got Government money while being run by people linked to the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, and although they did receive that money under a pathfinder scheme, it was not the pathfinder scheme concerned...

Queen's Speech — Debate (5th Day) (25 Nov 2009)

Lord Myners: ...step forward. The IMF and G20 Governments agree that prematurely withdrawing support from our economies would undermine recovery. The noble Lord, Lord Eatwell, reminded us of the remark by Mr David Cameron that he would withdraw support now. I thought it was chilling. The noble Lord, Lord Skidelsky, was devastating in his analysis of and commentary on the Conservative policy. The noble...

Bill Presented — Personal Care At Home Bill: Home Office and Work and Pensions (25 Nov 2009)

Yvette Cooper: ...the disingenuous ways in which Opposition Members have used statistics to support their image of a broken Britain, which their policies would, in fact, break further. The hon. Member for Monmouth (David T.C. Davies) shouted at us all with great enthusiasm. He said that he did not believe the British crime survey and he refused to accept it. He said that he preferred hospital statistics...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Nov 2009)

David Cameron: May I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Sergeant Robert Loughran-Dickson, who was killed in Afghanistan last week? As the Prime Minister said, our thoughts should be with his family. I also join him in paying tribute to PC Bill Barker, who died in the line of duty protecting the lives of others from those dreadful floods in Cumbria. As the Prime Minister also said, PC Bill Barker...

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (24 Nov 2009)

Lord Roberts of Conwy: ...selection of Westminster MPs, who might support such a stand. A battle line would thus be drawn between the National Assembly in Cardiff Bay and the Wales office in Whitehall and Westminster. Mr David Cameron, the Conservative leader, has said that if he were in government he would not oppose a referendum if the Assembly called for one, and I am told that the Conservatives in Wales would...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Childcare Vouchers (24 Nov 2009)

Jim Shannon: ...will have received an e-mail today from Employers for Children’s ChildcareSOS campaign. Attached to the e-mail are letters that Employers for Children has drafted to the Prime Minister and to David Cameron; that is, the man who is in office and the man who may be in office, although the polls are showing that they are much closer in popularity than they have been for a long time. I ask...

Sure Start — Question (24 Nov 2009)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I am very interested in that response and I hope very much that it will be echoed by the noble Baroness's leader. I understand that only last week the right honourable David Cameron indicated a lack of commitment to Sure Start, so I look forward to hearing her response echoed in another place. I am delighted to say that a range of integrated support, including health services, is...

Queen's Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (23 Nov 2009)

Lord Steel of Aikwood: ...faith in a new one? As for the Conservative Party, we remember on the last occasion when we debated my Bill a moving speech from the noble Lord, Lord Strathclyde, who said that he was off to see Mr David Cameron to make sure that this matter would receive priority attention. We were all deeply moved by this. There has been a deafening silence since and the press continues to report Mr...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Double-jobbing (23 Nov 2009)

Jim Wells: ...and £190,000 for newspaper columns. That is a total of £685,000. His total earnings for 2004 were £800,000. Of course, he does not approve of double-jobbing. In the same year, his colleague David Cameron, who, at that time, was not the leader of the party, made a cool £1·7 million. He is the party leader who is threatening to change the law on this issue. He made only £1·7 million....
