Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Transport (Investment) (26 Oct 2010)

Stuart Andrew: Secondly, I support some of the comments that the hon. Member for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves) made-perhaps not in the same way as I would have-with regard to the Kirkstall Forge and Apperley Bridge project, which would not only release significant amounts of private investment, but help to relieve significant congestion in some of the busiest parts of the city.

Planning (Developer Bonds) (27 Oct 2010)

Justin Tomlinson: proving to be essential in sustaining the long-term maintenance of high-cost assets, which are often used as a wow factor by developers to generate sales, such as architectural street lighting, bridges, ponds and decorative street furniture. Without that, the standard local authority budgets would not be sufficient to maintain those items. The willingness to enter into those agreements...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Vulnerable People (CSR) ( 9 Nov 2010)

Andrew George: The Minister is making an extremely important point; in fact, it was one of the many that I made. We need to establish a bridge between dependency and securing work. That applies to the housing benefit system, and I mentioned tapers, or the rate of withdrawal of housing benefit. The previous Government did nothing about the problem, which has been going on for decades. The point also applies...

Business of the House: Welfare Reform (11 Nov 2010)

Andrew George: Will this targeted work activity effectively be a stick-a humiliating sanction-which will not work, or will it be a carrot and a golden opportunity that will build a bridge between joblessness and the workplace, which would be welcomed by unemployed people and the voluntary sector?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Second Reading (2nd Day) (16 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...noble Lords have said, it is important that boundaries take account of more than numbers. They should take account especially of geography, whether of Anglesey-where I used to live-across the Menai Bridge; that of Cornwall, across the Tamar; or that of the Isle of Wight across the Solent. They should also take account of the geography of valleys-coming from Wales, I know about those-and of...

Grandparents (Access Rights) (23 Nov 2010)

Andrew Percy: ...The value of grandparents can never be underestimated. I cannot put that point better than Pam Wilson of the Grandparents Action Group UK, who has stated: "Grandparents are a link to the past and a bridge to the future, for family history and medical details. To give a child a sense of belonging from the roots of their family." Similarly, Peter Harris who was formerly the Official...

Written Ministerial Statements — Transport: Rail Investment (25 Nov 2010)

Philip Hammond: ...the Thameslink programme in its entirety, virtually doubling the number of north-south trains running through central London at peak times. But the original programme for the rebuilding of London Bridge was always ambitious, with substantial risks around delivery, and operation of existing services, during construction. To reduce these risks, we have re-profiled the delivery of the...

Business of the House: Rail Investment (25 Nov 2010)

Philip Hammond: ...number of north-south trains running through central London at peak times. This huge investment will link Sussex, Kent and Surrey, through central London, with Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. But the original programme for the rebuilding of London Bridge station to increase through-running as part of this project was always ambitious, with substantial risks in respect of...

Railways: Investment — Statement (25 Nov 2010)

Earl Attlee: ...number of north/south trains running through central London at peak times. This huge investment will link Sussex, Kent and Surrey, through central London, with Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. The original programme for the rebuilding of London Bridge station, to increase through-running as part of this project, was always ambitious, with substantial risks around delivery...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Transport (CSR) (25 Nov 2010)

Martin Vickers: ...coast. However, they should also be aware that it takes in the major ports and industrial complexes of Immingham, and the area along the south Humber bank up to Barton-upon-Humber, where the Humber bridge crosses the estuary. I shall return later to the subject of the bridge, and the problems caused by heavy tolls. First, I welcome the Government's approach within the comprehensive...

Written Answers — Defence: Afghanistan: Peacekeeping Operations (13 Dec 2010)

Andrew Robathan: ...To ensure that the mail is delivered on time, additional staff have been employed at the BFPO sorting depot and if required, additional flights will also be chartered to supplement the regular air bridge to Afghanistan. Once in theatre, the mail is delivered to personnel through local arrangements. It may, however, be necessary to hold the mail for those who are deployed in remote Forward...

Severe Weather (North Lincolnshire Rail Network) (21 Dec 2010)

Martin Vickers: ...-or two if one counts the Saturday-only service through Brigg that serves that constituency and the feeder stations for routes into my constituency. My hon. Friend the Member for Brigg and Goole (Andrew Percy) told me that he hoped to attend the debate and raise some specific points with the Minister, and perhaps that will happen. It might be helpful if I provide a brief outline of those...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive Question Time — Europe, External Affairs and Culture: UNESCO World Heritage Sites (23 Dec 2010)

Fiona Hyslop: ...those who have been campaigning for Arbroath abbey, but Alex Johnstone will appreciate that I have agreed with UK ministers to refrain from promoting any particular site. I also congratulate St Andrews and those who are campaigning for the Forth bridge, the buildings of Charles Rennie Macintosh, the crucible of iron age in Shetland and the flow country, so that I can treat all the...

Armed Forces Bill (10 Jan 2011)

Andrew Murrison: become, in the fullness of time and potentially under another Administration, simply a tick-box exercise. Over Christmas last year, my right hon. and hon. Friends were exercised by the air bridge between the UK and theatre. Perhaps that is a demonstration of a facet of the military covenant that could be covered in the annual report. I find to my great horror that similar problems arose...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (11th Day) (19 Jan 2011)

Lord Fowler: ...on your first day in Parliament. Things could only get better. The seat was being abolished because the Boundary Commission thought it wrong to have a constituency that crossed the river at Trent Bridge, going from the city to the county at West Bridgford. That was in spite of the fact that it took only a couple of minutes to walk over the bridge, there was no toll on the bridge and you...

Written Answers — Communities and Local Government: Big Society Initiative (26 Jan 2011)

Andrew Stunell: ...of this role, my Department has provided a transitional grant to Civic Voice, the national umbrella organisation for civic societies. This transitional grant will support Civic Voice to help bridge the gap to self-funding to enable the movement build the momentum of support required to put it onto a self-reliant and sustainable footing and support the Government's goal of building a Big...

[Jim Dobbin in the Chair] — School Governance ( 1 Feb 2011)

Guy Opperman: ...vital, and I hope I can give the benefit of some wisdom regarding why changes should be made, how they might be made and what the context is in Hexham. Hexham has four secondary schools, at Haydon Bridge, Ponteland, Hexham and Prudhoe. The constituency is vast, spanning more than 1,100 square miles. Haydon Bridge has probably the largest catchment area in that part of England; it is the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill ( 8 Feb 2011)

Andrew Cozens: The architecture is novel and the duties are not that different in some respects. I have been reflecting on this recently, and I think the closest direct parallels are the joint consultative committees and the joint care planning teams in the early ’80s, where after local government lost responsibility for all sorts of NHS functions, there was a deliberate attempt to create...

Wave Power (15 Feb 2011)

Andrew George: ...coming to this-that if the project, which enjoys perfect conditions, is to become a commercial success, we need public sector support, such as renewables obligation certificates or other means, to bridge the gap between where it is now and where it needs to be?
