Exports ( 3 May 1995)

Denis MacShane: ...even with their higher labour or currency costs on higher quality products. So, as the President of the Board of Trade said, the challenge is producing top-quality products that people want to buy". That was not a speech from a Labour spokesman. It was a speech by the President of the Board of Trade. That message is reflected across the board by every serious examination of our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Constitution and Home Affairs ( 7 Jun 2010)

Guy Opperman: ...However, our area's biggest problem is the chronic lack of social and affordable housing, which is having an impact on the local economy and schools. To put it simply, young people cannot afford to buy homes in my area. Some planners call this "Cumbriafication", whereby a community is simply priced out of its birthright as all the families have to move elsewhere to live. If we do not stop...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Fuel Poverty (19 Jan 2011)

Guy Opperman: ...by one company. Hon. Members will be amazed to hear that they are all using their old names, and that they are all operating and selling as if they were perfectly independent. Some people have been buying from these companies for 30 or more years. It is only when one starts digging that one realises that there is a significant problem, which affects well over half the population. It is...

Economic Development (North-East) (15 Feb 2011)

Nick Brown: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. One of the great things about economic development in our region is that it has proceeded with consensus, with buy-in right across the region sector by sector, including the public, private and voluntary sectors. We have understood the need to stick together, to talk to each other and to speak coherently on these issues. The fact that we did so is one of...

Wood Panel Industry — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (16 Mar 2011)

Susan Elan Jones: ...we are holding this debate on the wood panel industry. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Stirling (Mrs McGuire) on securing time for it. I thank the hon. Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) for his thoughtful contribution and the hon. Member for Brecon and Radnorshire (Roger Williams) for his thoughtful intervention. The wood panel industry is represented in my...

Protection of Freedoms Bill (Ways and Means): New Clause 15 — Offence of issuing excess parking charges (10 Oct 2011)

Henry Smith: ..., it is a source of great concern to our constituents up and down the country. I am pleased that it will be addressed in the Bill. I very much support, as my hon. Friend the Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) said a few moments ago, the introduction of a ban on wheel clamping. As the Minister pointed out, a ban has been successful for 19 years in Scotland, and it is high time that such a...

Opposition Day — [Unallotted day]: Energy Prices (19 Oct 2011)

Guy Opperman: ...is also tremendous difficulty for those who wish to compare prices themselves, because heating companies have no obligation to tell people the price that they are offering. Unless people ask to buy, they are not necessarily given the price. With respect, the Government can do something about that, and I invite them to sit down with individual suppliers, particularly the larger suppliers,...

[Hywel Williams in the Chair] — Horse Racing (Funding) (22 Nov 2011)

Guy Opperman: To misquote Christine Keeler, they would say that, wouldn’t they? The harsh reality is that Betfair is effectively trying to buy off the racing industry by making a donation that it does not have to make, in the hope that the matter will not be transferred back onshore. That is a strong assertion to make, but I suggest that there is ample evidence to support it. It is also clear that...

Backbench Business — [Un-allotted Day]: Manufacturing (24 Nov 2011)

David Morris: ...to highlight the needs of my constituents and the manufacturing industry, but to support my room-mate and hon. Friend—he is not right hon. yet, but headed that way— the Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman). I like to think that I have taught him everything he knows. My constituency is heavily reliant on energy production and manufacturing. Like many north Lancashire constituencies, we make...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Energy Prices (11 Jan 2012)

Caroline Flint: ...there should be more competition in the sector. For all types of energy—on-grid and off-grid—it is time that we had another look at what is happening in the market. For me, energy is not like buying a phone or a car; rather, it is essential to life, and therefore a higher order of accountability is required. I will be very happy to look at the issues raised by the Committee. Select...

Estimates Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Vote on Account 2012-13 — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Olympics and Paralympics (Funding) (27 Feb 2012)

Guy Opperman: ..., about which many have spoken. I stress that it has been a fundamental feature of both the previous Government’s approach—to their great credit—and the present Government’s approach to buy British and to support local organisations. I pay due tribute to: Sotech in Durham, which has provided the roof cladding for the aquatics centre; Hart Door Systems Ltd, which has provided the...

Written Answers — Home Department: Alcoholic Drinks: Misuse (11 Jun 2012)

Guy Opperman: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans she has to ban multi-buy promotions for alcohol in England and Wales.

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Regional Pay (20 Jun 2012)

Phil Wilson: ...local economy. The average wage is £418 a week, which is well below the national average. Regional pay will not benefit local businesses, because there will no longer be any drive for people to buy anything that is manufactured or created in the area. As for the idea that there are no national pay schemes in the private sector, Tesco has one and so has Nissan. They will not be looking...

Bill Presented — Infrastructure (Financial Assistance) Bill: Community Hospitals ( 6 Sep 2012)

Guy Opperman: ...PFI and asks what the Government can do. I would venture to suggest that the previous Health Secretary’s decision to approve the county council’s assistance to the health trust so that it could buy out the PFI contract that was crippling Hexham hospital is exactly the right way forward. Under that approach, a PFI arrangement is bought out and a much better financial basis is put in...

UK-Listed Mining Companies — [Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] (28 Nov 2012)

Guy Opperman: ...to form a cash cow of housing on the green belt. Frankly, it should be ashamed of itself. Banks is not the only one. A company called Lugano is universally detested for the way that it is buying up huge swathes of land for green-belt development. Lugano is not registered in this country and appears to be owned by a private trust in Guernsey. I have no way of finding out who the real owners...

Health: General Matters (20 Dec 2012)

Guy Opperman: ...give up their time to get involved, help their communities and improve people’s lives. They are passionate about the place in which they live. From the team in Tarset who organised the first oil-buying groups, pioneered a bastle trail and created the famous Murray henge, to Joan Russell, who runs her fantastic community allotment in Prudhoe, and Tom Martin, who led the creation of a...

Biomass Power Generation — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (20 Mar 2013)

Guy Opperman: ...wish to see. I am faced with a situation—this is the third Minister in three years whom I have addressed in relation to biomass subsidy—whereby, on the one hand, the standard person who is buying timber, whether it is a furniture maker, someone doing wood panelling, a caravan maker or any other person using timber in any way, shape or form in this country to run any kind of business...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2013)

Sajid Javid: I shall come to the help to buy scheme in a moment. I was hoping the hon. Lady would offer an apology, but no such luck. As my right hon. Friend the Business Secretary stated, yesterday’s Budget had economic growth at its heart. The economy is still feeling the impact of Labour’s disastrous policies, but we continue to find practical ways to turn the economy around and to restore growth....

The High Street — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 May 2013)

Meg Hillier: ...time to go into. Finally, there is Hoxton Street market, which is very old and famous. Again, it is being revamped, as part of an attempt to improve our markets. The hon. Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) summed up Hexham in his own way, and I would sum up Hackney in terms of its three main markets. There is Broadway market, where it costs about £2.50 for a loaf of bread, but people have...

Energy Bill: Clause 1 — Decarbonisation ( 4 Jun 2013)

Guy Opperman: ...a considerable impact, although we need it to trickle down to local suppliers, too few of whom are providing it on an ongoing basis. I applaud the efforts made to deal with fuel poverty through the buy oil early campaign, and look forward to doing my bit later in the year. However, it has been put to me that the success of the campaign would be massively increased if winter fuel payments...
