Business of the House (16 Dec 2010)

Mark Pawsey: Christmas is just around the corner, and many people will receive a gift of a personalised number plate for their car. That provides valuable income to the Exchequer-about £1.3 billion since 1989. However, many of these plates are illegal by virtue of their character, position and appearance and by the addition of bolts in order to create a name or word. That has serious implications for the...

Treasury (21 Dec 2010)

Mark Pawsey: ...(Mr Umunna), because I, too, wish to raise a matter relating to high street banks. I shall discuss the proposals to withdraw the ability to write cheques, and in referring to that issue my remarks will in part be the reflections of a new Member-perhaps appropriate for this time of year-and draw on my early experience in a new role. In August, I received a letter from a constituent, Miss...

Treasury (21 Dec 2010)

Mark Pawsey: My hon. Friend makes a fair point, but somebody in the older age group has drawn the issue to my attention, and I shall go on to mention how it affects not just those people but others. It is true, none the less, that those most resisting change are older residents, such as Miss Keats, who often do not have internet access or are uncomfortable with the open-ended commitment of a direct debit,...

Treasury (21 Dec 2010)

Mark Pawsey: Absolutely. I spent 25 years running a small business and I know that the information on the back of cheques is of great value. I am pleased that the Government recognise the seriousness of the issue. I appreciate the recent ministerial letter that recognised people's concerns. It acknowledged that no decision on closure will be taken before 2016 and that that would depend on suitable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Swine Flu (10 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for the information that he has provided so far, but I wonder whether he could reassure the parents of a 13-year-old boy. They came to see me on Saturday because their son is egg allergic and also suffers from asthma, and they are concerned about the availability of a flu vaccine this year.

Localism Bill (17 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Localism Bill (17 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Localism Bill (17 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Does my hon. Friend agree that that is a case of a business approach to the occupation of land and that that is why the enforcement proposals in the Bill are so welcome?

Backbench Business — [16th Allotted Day]: Disadvantaged Children (20 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this important debate and I acknowledge the efforts of my hon. Friends the Members for Salisbury (John Glen) and for East Hampshire (Damian Hinds) in enabling it to take place. We have heard much about the lifetime consequences of child poverty for individuals on a personal level and that many of the costly and damaging problems our society faces...

Backbench Business — [16th Allotted Day]: Disadvantaged Children (20 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: ..., I recognise its value and believe those important resources and facilities should be targeted in the areas of greatest need. I fully support the proposals to open Sure Start centres to the market so that private companies may bid to run them. It is important to mention maternity and paternity provisions, because only this week the Deputy Prime Minister announced proposals to allow...

Property Market (25 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: ...my hon. Friend the Member for Watford (Richard Harrington) on securing this debate. Although I recognise that the debate so far has been exclusively about housing, its title is "Property Market" and I hope to raise a point about commercial property, when my declaration in the Register of Members' Financial Interests will become relevant. [Hywel Williams in the Chair] My hon. Friend and...

Property Market (25 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: ...as often as it should. Points were made about the availability of finance. People's ability to buy homes is very much driven by their ability to borrow, and there are real uncertainties in the market because of the current FSA proposals, which have been described as draconian. The harder we make it for people to get the level of finance they require, the less demand there will be for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (27 Jan 2011)

Mark Pawsey: In my constituency, an average of 27 people a year are killed or seriously injured in crashes involving young people. That includes a tragic accident over the Christmas period involving a friend of my son. Graduated driver licensing, enabling a new driver to proceed to a full licence over a period, has been shown in many countries to reduce the number of casualties in that vulnerable group....

Former Metal Mines: Local Government Finance (9 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: My right hon. Friend spoke about the need for councils to control executive salaries. Does he have some words of comfort for Rugby borough council, which has chosen to save £100,000 by not replacing its chief executive and devolving the responsibilities to deputies and the elected leader of the council?

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — backbench business — Onshore Wind Energy (10 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: In my constituency, Converteam manufactures components of turbines. It is working on gearless turbines, which will address the issues of noise that greatly concern both my hon. Friend's constituents and my constituents. Therefore, there are some UK manufacturers of wind turbines, which means that there is some benefit to the UK economy.

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — backbench business — Onshore Wind Energy (10 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Can my hon. Friend tell us whether the applicant has provided any evidence that the site in question has sufficient wind power to generate the kind of energy that the country needs?

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — backbench business — Onshore Wind Energy (10 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South Northamptonshire (Andrea Leadsom) on securing the debate. We have heard a lot about balance this afternoon. I want to add to the balance by recognising the need to increase the proportion of our energy from renewables, while specifically ensuring that the views of communities are taken into account. The general thrust of the Localism Bill is...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — backbench business — Onshore Wind Energy (10 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: My hon. Friend makes a fair point, and I will speak later about the efforts made by my hon. Friend the Member for South Northamptonshire to table an amendment to the Localism Bill to do precisely that-give more power to local communities. There is some good news about manufacturing. I referred earlier to Converteam, which manufactures permanent magnet generators in my constituency. Those are...
