Dawn Butler: What plans he has to improve children's health; and if he will make a statement.
Dawn Butler: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what steps he is taking to promote social enterprise amongst young people.
Dawn Butler: The definition of employment agency uses the phrase “finding workers employment with employers”. That clarifies the position, in that head-hunters find the individual, not the employment.
Dawn Butler: What steps the Government are taking to increase awareness among carers of their right to request flexible working.
Dawn Butler: What assessment has the Foreign Secretary made of Kosovo's independence, and what is the UK doing to support Kosovo?
Dawn Butler: My constituency, Brent, South, has been described as many things, but one of the most offensive is being described as broken. My community and families in Brent are not broken. In 2003 the Government introduced double maternity pay and pioneering paternity leave. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is now time to review these measures?
Dawn Butler: Will my right hon. Friend give way?
Dawn Butler: Will my right hon. Friend clarify whether, for example, breaches of fundamental requirements to conduct risk assessments for breaches of asbestos regulations would be included?
Dawn Butler: The Bill has three clauses and three schedules. I think that the most important is schedule 1, which covers the mode of trial and maximum penalties. Does my hon. Friend agree?
Dawn Butler: I am sure that my hon. Friend, like me, will have received correspondence that shows that the trade unions are pleased that employers now have to carry out a fundamental risk assessment in the workplace. Often, their failure to do that results in accidents that could have been avoided.
Dawn Butler: To help those small businesses especially, the Health and Safety Commission has local environmental health officers, whose role is preventive. The Bill adds to that preventive function, so employers should not fear the Bill, but should implement it in order to prevent accidents.
Dawn Butler: I thank my hon. Friend for giving away again; she has been very generous. The Bill deals with prosecutions, but it is reserved for the most serious offences, so does she agree that employees should not fear if they are doing their job correctly? Only the most serious offences would go to court.
