TfL (Funding and Station Staffing) — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (15 Jan 2014)

Stephen Hammond: I understand the fixation on the Mayor, because he is the leader of London. However, Mr Brown, who runs London Underground, meets the unions, and I understand that Sir Peter Hendy has done the same. I was asked several questions, and I will try to answer some of them in the short time that I have. The hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington asked me about the response to a parliamentary question...

Fishing Industry (12 Dec 2013)

George Eustice: ...and we hope there will be an outcome. With a 70% increase in the TAC, it is important that this is the best opportunity we will have to get a solution. My hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) mentioned the issue of the under-10 metre fleet. I can confirm that this is an important domestic priority for the Government. I have met members of the under-10 metre fleet, as well as...

Defence Reform Bill — Second Reading (10 Dec 2013)

Lord Craig of Radley: ...industrial suppliers, the then Defence Secretary, Michael Heseltine, now the noble Lord, Lord Heseltine, decreed that there must be no more fraternisation between the two sides. He also invited Peter Levene, now the noble Lord, Lord Levene, from private industry to fill a new appointment of Chief of Defence Procurement in 1985, as we know. Improvements came: cost-plus was out, competition...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fish Discards (21 Nov 2013)

Peter Aldous: ...’s fish stocks. Will the Minister confirm that the Government will introduce a range of measures alongside the discard ban, and that full regard will be given to the interests of the inshore fleet, such as those who fish out of Lowestoft in my constituency?

Wellingborough Prison Site (18 Nov 2013)

Peter Bone: ...located in the east midlands, where there is no shortage of prison places, and miles from London, where there is a huge lack of prison capacity. When that was suggested to me, I am sure I saw a fleet of flying pigs doing somersaults and belly laughing. Wellingborough prison has for a long time been an overflow prison for London. It is located 50 minutes from central London by train and has...

Fishing Quotas (16 Jul 2013)

Richard Benyon: I start by paying great tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous). His constituency might have a much diminished fleet, but he is a worthy champion of it and has stood up for it on many occasions. Having visited Lowestoft’s fishing industry with him, I have seen at first hand his passion to see it return to economic viability—to flourish, as he puts it—and to...

Defence Reform Bill (16 Jul 2013)

Penny Mordaunt: ...expressed in the Chamber this afternoon about an off-the-shelf approach, but people could be very reassured by reading the White Paper produced by my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Worcestershire (Peter Luff), who is no longer in his place. [Hon. Members: “He is over there.”] I am glad that he is here for the pat on the back that I am giving him. That excellent White Paper captured...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Jul 2013)

Peter Lloyd: At the moment, with the proposals that stand with HS2 Ltd, there will be two types of rolling stock: one is the captive fleet for operation purely on new high-speed lines, and the other is a new fleet of classic-compatible trains that operate with the existing UK gauge. For the period in which they operate, we do not necessarily see a requirement for new stations, because they...

Backbench Business — Nato (4 Jul 2013)

James Arbuthnot: ...French, the Spanish and the British working as closely together now as NATO allows us to do. Interestingly, at the battle of Trafalgar there were a lot of French and Spanish sailors in the British fleet, just as there were quite a number of British sailors in the French and Spanish fleets. That was not a matter of treachery—more a matter of expediency. In those days, when a ship was...

Nato: Common Fisheries Policy (17 Jun 2013)

Peter Aldous: I congratulate the Minister on his efforts over the past three years in securing a fair deal for the British fleet. My concern is that these reforms come very much at the 59th minute of the 23rd hour for the Lowestoft fleet, which is very much a pale shadow of its former self. What Suffolk fishermen now need—urgently—is a fair share of quota for the inshore fleet. Will he outline the work...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: EU Fisheries Negotiations (8 Jan 2013)

Peter Aldous: I, too, congratulate the Minister on his work in the negotiations before Christmas and over the past two and a half years on behalf of the under-10 metre fleet. There is concern that in future work on the reallocation of quota, the under-10s will be compromised by not having kept records. Will he confirm that he will work with the industry to address that concern?

Public Bodies (Abolition of the Railway Heritage Committee) Order 2013: Motion to Approve (17 Dec 2012)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: ...This covers around 111 working heritage railways and tramways, as well as 60 steam museum sites. There are more than 399 stations on these lines-more than on the Underground network-and there is a fleet of around 800 preserved steam locomotives. Artefacts that are designated, and thus preserved, often find a new life on the heritage railways, and that brings many benefits to local...

[Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Dec 2012)

Richard Benyon: ...a priority, will be seeking a way to ensure that days at sea remain at 2012 levels into 2013. We see that as vital to the recovery of cod stocks and to maintaining the viability of the UK fishing fleet. Those are two similar priorities for us. Everyone agrees that further cuts in days at sea cannot be justified, and they are being contemplated only as a result of the flawed cod recovery...

Written Answers — Defence: Nuclear Submarines: Wales (13 Jul 2012)

Peter Luff: I have not received any official representations from the Welsh Government regarding the basing in Wales of the nuclear submarine fleet.
