Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Work Capability Assessment (14 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: The Minister will be aware of the concerns of people who have conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, who have good days and bad days. They are anxious to ensure that they receive fair treatment through the work capability assessment, taking account of their ability to complete activities on a regular basis. Can the Minister provide an assurance that the variable nature of such...

Business, Innovation and Skills: Small Businesses (Recruitment) (17 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: What steps his Department is taking to make it easier for small businesses to recruit staff.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Small Businesses (Recruitment) (17 Feb 2011)

Mark Pawsey: On Friday I met business leaders in my constituency, Rugby, who told me that the matter of greatest concern to them is that too many work force disputes, often without foundation, are taken to the employment tribunal. Fear of such action is acting as a deterrent to employment. Can the Minister update us on when the new proposals will come into effect?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Mar 2011)

Mark Pawsey: There is an independent committee that ensures that once they have left office, former Ministers act appropriately in their subsequent employment. It is reported that Lord Mandelson, Baroness Symons and Adam Ingram have worked for the Gaddafi regime. Will the Prime Minister ensure that these reports are thoroughly investigated?

Business of the House (3 Mar 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Micro-businesses, which employ up to five people and have a turnover of less than £250,000, constitute the largest number of business units in the UK, but often their owners are not motivated to increase the size of their business. If each micro-business in my constituency took on just one extra employee, however, there would be nobody looking for work in the constituency. Will the Leader of...

New Homes Bonus (15 Mar 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I congratulate my hon. Friend on introducing such an important debate. The 80:20 split is of great concern to Rugby borough council, which argues that it has taken forward the proposals for the new housing from which Rugby will benefit. It is concerned that a proportion of the new homes bonus will be allocated to the county council, which will benefit from development under the section 106...

Royal Assent: Fuel Prices and the Cost of Living (16 Mar 2011)

Mark Pawsey: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin), but I am disappointed that he chose to repeat the remarks of Opposition Members on the attendance of Front Benchers in this debate. It is pretty reasonable for us to expect that they would be working hard on a most important Budget, which will be delivered in this Chamber in only a week’s time. I want to concentrate on...

Royal Assent: Fuel Prices and the Cost of Living (16 Mar 2011)

Mark Pawsey: The point that I am making is that the most important thing in any organisation is the ability to budget accurately across the business. The stabiliser proposal will deal with that; a reduction in VAT simply will not have any effect on that at all. It is my contention that Labour Members are to blame for the situation that we are in, because this January, the Government implemented a rise in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Homes Bonus (4 Apr 2011)

Mark Pawsey: The local authority in my constituency of Rugby has been quick to recognise the benefits that come with the new homes bonus and it has ambitious proposals for new housing development. What steps is the Minister taking to ensure that planning authorities across England recognise the lead of authorities such as Rugby and allocate land for the new homes that are so badly needed?

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Government Reductions in Policing (4 Apr 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Notwithstanding the remarks that we have just heard from the hon. Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey), the Opposition, whose motion we are debating this evening, know that it is not possible to have any discussion about any public sector service without having some regard to the national economic context. Colleagues on the Government Benches have mentioned the £120 million a day...

General Matters (5 Apr 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I have the honour of representing the only place that has given its name to an international game. Rugby is known as both a midlands market town and a fast-growing game, played in two codes by men and women. Indeed, the use of the same word for town and game occasionally leads to confusion. If one googles any organisation in my constituency with the town in the title, one gets links to a...

Mark Pawsey: What steps he is taking to increase access to Government contracts for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (27 Apr 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I am the former owner of a small business supplying products to the public sector. When applying to be added to a new tender list, I was often frustrated by the amount of red tape required. Will the Minister confirm that in future fewer company policies and statements will need to be provided to participate in the tendering process?

Adjournment (Whitsun, Summer and Conference 2011): Rights of Adoptive Parents (4 May 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I am pleased to have been able to secure this debate to consider the rights of adoptive parents. In respect of the adoption of children, we hear a great deal about the children involved, about what is best for them, and about how to provide them with stable and happy upbringing. Given the need to protect such children, who are often very vulnerable, it is right and proper that they should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 May 2011)

Mark Pawsey: In Rugby, a significant number of vehicles on our roads have been brought into the country by foreign workers, and they remain registered in their home countries. When I raised the matter with the Minister, he advised me that such vehicles can be used for six months in a 12-month period, or until the visitor takes up residence. However, there is currently no database for tracking such...
