Results 1–20 of 7010 for jeremy hunt speaker:Jeremy Hunt

Health and Education (24 May 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: I congratulate the many new Members who have made their maiden contributions this evening. The hon. Members for Hackney, South and Shoreditch (Meg Hillier) and for Brent, South (Ms Butler) expressed great pride at being the first women to represent their constituencies, and I am particularly proud to be the first man to represent mine in more than 20 years. I am also proud to be standing next...

Health and Education (24 May 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: ...and individual suffering. I was greatly helped in setting up that charity by Estelle Morris, who was willing to work across party lines to help me get it off the ground. She once said to me, "Jeremy, you care a lot about education and you care about the developing world. Just why are you a Conservative?", to which I say this: no party has a monopoly on compassion—the challenge is how to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Renewable Transport Fuels (9 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: Will the Secretary of State explain why, if she is so committed to encouraging the use of environmentally friendly biofuels, there seems to be a Sir Humphrey-like delay in instituting a renewable transport fuel order that would make that happen? It appears to have become bogged down in what is described as a feasibility study.

Africa (Poverty) (30 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: I have listened to this afternoon's debate with great interest. I agree with the hon. Member for Blaydon (Mr. Anderson) that we should not be ashamed if there is consensus on this issue. If we really are going to make poverty history, we need to combine a concern for poverty with an understanding of wealth creation. We need practical compassion and economic realism. When one first sees...

Local Taxation (4 Jul 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: I am most grateful to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, as I have spoken only three times in this House and each time you have been in the Chair. I am beginning to think that you must be my lucky charm, and I hope that you will call me many times in the future. There is no doubt that council tax has several difficulties, including those to do with its structure. However, it is not, as Liberal...

Local Taxation (4 Jul 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: I am not accustomed to congratulating Liberal Democrats on their campaigning techniques, but in that respect I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. This is, in all seriousness, something that the Liberal Democrats need to consider. My constituency is an expensive part of the world and, yes, there are people on high salaries, but there are also people on low salaries who have to deal with...

Local Taxation (4 Jul 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: None the less, I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her valid point Madam Deputy Speaker. The local income tax might relieve the pain for some suffering groups but it would do so by transferring it to others who would suffer just as badly and are the very people whom we want to help—those who are just starting on the property ladder, are not on particularly high salaries and may find it hard...

Local Taxation (4 Jul 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: The hon. Gentleman and I have to accept that neither of us knows the answer to that. The divergence in income levels might be higher than the divergence in property prices, and were that the case there would have to be even more resource equalisation. Local income tax fails to address the real problem in local taxation, which is that far too high a proportion of the funds spent by local...

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Greenhouse Gas Emissions (EU) (7 Jul 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: Does the Secretary of State agree, given the relatively slow progress being made by the EU towards meeting its Kyoto targets, given that yesterday President Bush once again affirmed that he would not be prepared to accept compulsory emissions targets for the United States, and given that the developing world has consistently said that it will prioritise economic growth over environmental...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Arms Sales (China) (19 Jul 2005)

Jeremy Hunt: I am grateful to the Minister for his answer. While I appreciate the diplomatic and commercial significance of the decision on the arms embargo, I am sure he will agree that the decision also has tremendous military significance for the people of Taiwan. Does he agree that our policy towards Taiwan must be consistent with our policy towards Afghanistan and Iraq, where we have always...
