Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Forests and Woodlands (12 May 2011)

In January 2000, ownership of Brandon wood in my constituency passed from the Forestry Commission to the Friends of Brandon Wood and became the first community woodland in England.

[Philip Davies in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Apprenticeships (Small Businesses) (9 Jun 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Like my hon. Friend the Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson), I ran a small business for 25 years. At no stage during that time did it even cross my mind to take on an apprentice; we just had this notion of bureaucracy and cost. The critical thing is to get the message out to the 92% of businesses that have not taken on an apprentice and to pass on the information from the 8% that...

[Philip Davies in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Apprenticeships (Small Businesses) (9 Jun 2011)

Mark Pawsey: There has been pressure on young people in recent years to go to university. I have teenage boys who are very motivated to go to university, because that is what their peer group does and that is what they have seen happen. It is the entire emphasis of our education system. Those with practical application who are willing to get their hands dirty are discouraged or looked down on as not doing...

Postal Services Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Munro Report (9 Jun 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I want to make just one brief but important point that has arisen as a consequence of representations made to me by constituents about the regulation of the social work profession.

For the past few years the council has been located...

In addition to Firstbuy and the new homes bonus, one way of increasing the supply of new homes will be to relax the planning rules, including allowing the conversion of empty commercial space.

Dangerous Driving Offences (Sentences) (22 Jun 2011)

Mark Pawsey: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate. I want to refer him to the case of a constituent of mine who came into my constituency office last Friday to show me some absolutely horrendous photographs of a car that had gone straight out at a junction and into somebody’s wall, before demolishing my constituent’s car and sending bricks flying into their living room....

[Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] — Backbench business — Private Finance Initiative (23 Jun 2011)

Mark Pawsey: My neighbour and colleague is making a strong case about the impact of the UHCW in the health economy of Warwickshire, but my interest is my local hospital of St Cross in Rugby, which is part of the same trust. One of our big concerns is that, with such a large proportion of the health economy going into the PFI hospital, in times of budget pressure such as now, the bias will always be...

[Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] — Backbench business — Private Finance Initiative (23 Jun 2011)

Mark Pawsey: Does my hon. Friend agree that a justification for a rebate arises from the effect of the spending review on those Departments whose budgets have been reduced? If the PFI element remains fixed within the budget, by definition the non-PFI element has to reduce by a greater proportion, so budgets that may have been reduced by 2% could end up being reduced by 4%. It is entirely appropriate that...
