[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Votes at 16 ( 6 May 2014)

Mark Harper: ...and tidy, but a lot of them exist for very sensible reasons. The hon. Lady says that she would like to tidy some of the rules up. Some of the arguments about increasing the age at which people can buy tobacco and do a whole bunch of other things—use sun beds, for example—were championed by her party. I am perfectly happy to accept that there are people who think that we should change...

Rural Bus Services (29 Apr 2014)

Tessa Munt: ...’s needs. When their needs cross local authority boundaries, things becomes increasingly difficult for them when the authorities do not work together. My hon. Friend the Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman), who has left the Chamber, was talking about different technologies and making sure that we have some form of co-ordination. A lot of modern practices in London and in other cities...

[Dr William McCrea in the Chair] — Elliott Review and Food Crime ( 2 Apr 2014)

Anne McIntosh: ..., as well as the Troop review, the National Audit Office review, an internal FSA review and now the Elliott review. We need definitive action now. As my hon. Friend the Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) said, there was a remarkable short-term boost for local butchers and farm shops, and I hope that that will last. To address the point made by the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Mr...

Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill ( 1 Apr 2014)

Guy Opperman: ...approximately 10 minutes—those who visit Humbles Wood, in Prudhoe, in my constituency, which is a new-build housing estate, will find that 85% to 90% of all purchases there are made with Help to Buy. It has utterly transformed the ability of a relatively low-paid local community in one of the smallest towns in my constituency to access housing. It is a massive help, and not just there....

Amendment of the Law (24 Mar 2014)

Mary Macleod: ...VAT on fuel for our air ambulances…and provide a new air ambulance for London, all in response to huge and heartfelt public demand and the campaigns of my hon. Friends the Members for Hexham (Guy Opperman), for Brentford and Isleworth (Mary Macleod) and for Argyll and Bute (Mr Reid).” —[ Official Report, 19 March 2014; Vol. 577, c. 786.] London air ambulance is an incredibly...

Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2014)

Chloe Smith: ...Norwich. I am a Conservative for that very reason: I believe that people are individual, responsible and free to spend their own money in line with their best decisions. I also support the Help to Buy scheme and running that for longer until 2020 could mean that many more families in Norwich get on the housing ladder. I strongly support the tax-free child care scheme that has been...

Ways and Means: Financial Statement (19 Mar 2014)

George Osborne: ...rescue boat services across Britain, and provide a new air ambulance for London, all in response to huge and heartfelt public demand and the campaigns of my hon. Friends the Members for Hexham (Guy Opperman), for Brentford and Isleworth (Mary Macleod) and for Argyll and Bute (Mr Reid). Tomorrow is the 21st anniversary of the IRA bomb that killed young Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball....

Business of the House: Parliamentary Representation (27 Feb 2014)

Brooks Newmark: address the concerns legitimately raised in the motion. Parliament and political representation is made stronger by diversity, and we should all be working to make this change happen. Without buy-in from men, attempts to encourage more women into Parliament will not be as successful as they could be, so we all need to engage with the issue of diversity of representation. I strongly...

Fuel Poverty (11 Feb 2014)

Mark Williams: ...home discount to working families in which there are children living in poverty? That would help many of my constituents. I want to mention some local initiatives. The hon. Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) spoke about the need to develop bulk-buying oil syndicates; 70% of my constituency, including my house, does not have access to mains gas, and I wonder what the Department of Energy and...

Bangladesh: Nuisance Calls (16 Jan 2014)

Michael Weir: ...but use them for things such as internet shopping. The fact that such a call originated from overseas illustrates one of the huge difficulties with this issue. The hon. Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) talked about calls coming in during the early hours of the morning, and I wonder if the real reason is that an automated caller from overseas has not correctly accounted for the time...

Energy and Climate Change: Fuel Poverty (16 Jan 2014)

Guy Opperman: Identifying those who live in fuel-poor households is of paramount importance, and Members of Parliament, the Church and credit unions have a role to play in that. We in Northumberland invented oil-buying clubs in this country, and we now have 13 of them, covering almost all the off-grid provision. We have produced a leaflet of which we are particularly proud, which explains how people can...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Banking (15 Jan 2014)

Guy Opperman: ...and need debt advice. There is massive scope for the Church to take a greater role by dovetailing churches with credit unions and community banks. I welcome the fact that the Church has chosen to buy branches of Williams and Glyn’s bank, and is setting something up so that we can go forward. If we can do that and become more proactive in our local communities, a huge amount can be done....

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — Housing ( 8 Jan 2014)

Guy Opperman: In Prudhoe in my constituency eight out of the 10 houses that were purchased recently at the development by the hospital were bought under Help to Buy. Does the right hon. Gentleman now welcome the Help to Buy policy which has transformed the ability of people to bridge the difficulty he so correctly outlines?

Energy and Climate Change: Energy Support (Northumberland) (17 Oct 2013)

Guy Opperman: ...concern should particularly be for vulnerable residents caught out by sudden spring cold snaps. Does he agree that there is scope for a pilot project in Northumberland in which a consortium of oil-buying clubs, parish councils and credit unions could be funded to assist such residents?

Energy Policy (Winter Preparations) ( 9 Oct 2013)

Guy Opperman: ...on securing this debate. Does he accept that fuel bills may be rising, but there are things that individual constituents can do? In my area of Northumberland, for example, 13 groups have formed oil-buying clubs, which have seen reductions of between 10% and 20% in heating oil prices for thousands of people across the region.

Citizenship (Armed Forces) Bill (13 Sep 2013)

Guy Opperman: .... Thanks to the armed forces covenant, there have also been developments in housing. Members of the armed forces are now being placed at the top of the priority list on the Government’s First Buy scheme. The armed forces covenant is why we are here today. The anomaly that the Bill seeks to address is that a serviceman or woman who serves overseas for a considerable length of time does...

Backbench Business — High-cost Credit: North-East Independent Economic Review ( 5 Sep 2013)

Kevan Jones: ...barriers between parts of the north-east. People in my constituency work on Tyneside, in Durham and down on Teesside. That is one of the problems with the report. The hon. Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman) said that he welcomed his involvement in the report. I say well done to him, because Labour MPs were certainly not asked for their involvement, although that did not surprise me at all,...

Backbench Business — High-cost Credit ( 5 Sep 2013)

Neil Parish: The hon. Member for Wansbeck (Ian Lavery) has raised a good point. There are laws requiring a cooling-off period when, for instance, people buy shares in holiday accommodation, but that does not apply to loans of this kind. There is a great deal that we can do. We must help people to obtain credit, but we must also help them to obtain advice. I agreed with much of what was said by my hon....

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...

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

Nicholas Boles: to find ways to help them adjust to change. We have heard from all hon. Members who participated in the debate a wide range of stories about many situations, including the fact that people can buy three pairs of knickers for a pound in Hoxton market—I shall be taking up that offer soon, though for which purpose we will not describe now—and that my hon. Friend the Member for Hexham...
