A Green Industrial Revolution (15 Jan 2020)

Mark Fletcher: ...is only a few weeks away and mentally you are flicking through the travel brochures. The beaches of the Bahamas, Bali and Barbados are calling, but may I make a suggestion that is equally, if not more, splendid—Bolsover? Its tremendous tourism trade is beginning to thrive, and you will meet the friendliest constituents in the country. You can visit our 17th century castle or make your...

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Centenary of the Armistice (6 Nov 2018)

Kevan Jones: ...of 122 men just from Sacriston and the surrounding area—it is a very small area—who lost their lives in the first world war. This Sunday, the local community will plant 122 crosses and a few more, because some people are not on the memorial, in the garden of remembrance next to the community centre, and I congratulate the community on doing that. I know that similar ceremonies will...

Scottish Parliament: High Hedges (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (28 Mar 2013)

Christine Grahame: ...Safety when, if I recall rightly, he tried to pursue it under nuisance legislation. It was difficult to find a way to frame the legislation. It was very important to keep the definition to two or more shrubs or trees. As I said at stage 1—I will repeat it—we know an elephant when we see one and we know a hedge when we see one, but just try to define an elephant. It took a long time to...

Theresa May: ...the reforms of 1832, but his history lesson was bettered only by the maiden speech of my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) who gave everybody in the Chamber a rather more eloquent and distinguished historical lesson. I am sure we shall hear more from him, as was said earlier. The right hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Alan Johnson), who...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Processing of Planning Applications (21 May 2007)

Jeffrey M. Donaldson: ...offices. My good friend the Member for South Down Mr Wells, my other colleagues and other Members have mentioned recruitment difficulties and the fact that the private sector can offer much more attractive terms to experienced planning officers, which makes staff retention difficult. However, there are clearly disparities between offices. In my constituency, I deal with the divisional...

Point of Order: Social Security (19 Feb 2007)

David Ruffley: ...proportion of their monthly income goes on utility bills and council tax, so for pensioners the reality of inflation is very different from Rossi or RPI, which is the subject of this order. Shona Dobbie of the Alliance Trust summed the situation up when she said: "The impact of price increases on basic goods and services falls most heavily on the elderly, who spend a higher proportion of...

Prostate Cancer (22 Nov 2006)

Christopher Fraser: ...hope that today's debate will help to raise awareness of it. I last sponsored a debate on this subject in 1998. On that occasion, I was most grateful to receive the advice and guidance of Dr. James Dobbie. I am pleased to be able to say that for today's debate I have received immeasurable support from several prostate cancer charities, for which I wish to express my sincere thanks. At the...

I decided to move outside my...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Jimmy Hood: ...98,000. He immediately went on to a salary of £220,000. On 23 February the Prime Minister was asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Midlothian (Mr. Eadie) whether he would like to comment on the more than doubling of the chairman's salary. The Prime Minister replied that the new chairman must be well worth that money if that was what he was being paid. That was strange because it was...

Mr David Alton: ...rule. This document was written in May 1953, six months after Britain's first nuclear explosion off the coast of the Monte Bello Islands in Western Australia. In October 1953 Britain tested two more devices at Emu Field in South Australia. This is among the first official records to be released on the atomic bomb tests. It says: Many of these tests are of the highest importance to...

Bill Presented: A12 Road, Martlesham (23 Feb 1981)

Mr Keith Stainton: ...at Martlesham will, without implementing the June 1980 White Paper proposal, merely link this magnificent new network to the existing A12 which, through both Kesgrave and Martlesham, is little more than a passable country single carriageway. Clearly this would be wrong. The new Ipswich southern bypass will carry traffic from London to East Norfolk round Ipswich and out at Martlesham....

Unemployment (Glasgow) (28 May 1971)

Mr Frank McElhone: ...most disturbing and the most serious is that we have 2,200 school-leavers still looking for jobs, and this figure, I must tell the House, will be very much aggravated in June when several hundreds more school-leavers come on to the labour market. This is most serious indeed, and it is disturbing me and many of my friends in the trade unions that the employers are not taking on...

British Territories, Borneo (17 Nov 1950)

Mr James Harrison: ...the Corporation on what they had been able to do in various parts of the Empire and Commonwealth, but I suggested that they should look at those Borneo territories with a view to doing something more than has been done to develop them economically. There is only one scheme which I have been able to find was publicly announced, and that is the taking over of the North Borneo Abaca Limited....

Colonel Sir Alan Gomme-Duncan: ...standing on the Order Paper in my name and that of the hon. and gallant Member for Antrim (Major Haughton), which refers to damasks. The official wording says: figured textiles woven with jacquard, dobby, shaft or tappet looms. Anyone with knowledge of the trade will know that those are the particular looms which are used in the manufacture of patterned damasks. What we should like to do...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill (6 May 1946)

...I myself come from a very small oppressed nation. Possibly the hon. and gallant Member for East Renfrew does the same; he seems to have a good Welsh name. I can appreciate what Scotland feels. Even more, 1 know what is behind the people who have felt apprephension on this subject and have not thought of it as a political stunt. I know Scotland is very anxious lest she should again fall...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill (2 May 1946)

...the temple of the human spirit—to improve the quality of the human body, so that a great people, as we have proved ourselves to be, may through a new environment and better treatment become more worthy citizens of this great country.

Orders of the Day — Housing (7 Jun 1945)

Mr Arthur Molson: ...to fight a total war, the civilian population has to go short of food and clothing and also has to go short of additional houses, and that is why at the end of six years, with approximately 850,000 more married couples in the country, there is a great shortage of houses. But the Government has no need to apologise to the country that, amongst the many sacrifices which it has had to call...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Navy Estimates, 1945 (7 Mar 1945)

Mr William Dobbie: ...France was a culmination of the Navy's work, which began when the war broke out and reached its first climax when our Army was withdrawn from Dunkirk. It continued under conditions made immensely more difficult by the occupation by the enemy of the Atlantic coast of France. In circumstances like those, reviewing the position again, thinking of those dark days, one can understand—and I...

Sir Richard Pilkington: ...for Batley and Morley (Mr. H. Beaumont), especially about the need for the nation to realise fully the tremendous debt which all of us owe to the Navy. My hon. Friend the Member for Rotherham (Mr. Dobbie) paid a tribute to my right hon. Friend which has been endorsed by practically every other speaker. My right hon. Friend himself spoke of the great esteem and affection which he felt for...
