Protection of Otters (13 May 1969)

Mr Edwin Brooks: ...the depredations of sheer selfishness and stupidity. My interest in the otter was aroused long ago, when I won my first and, as it proved to be, my last school prize, the book "Tarka the Otter". Williamson's classic gave me a lasting affection for the animal which Gavin Maxwell's more recent "Ring of Bright Water" has confirmed. It is hard not to see our better human qualities in the...

Protection of Otters (29 Feb 1972)

Mr Raymond Carter: .... Yet the uniqueness and attractiveness of the otter, our largest water-based mammal, have been introduced to millions of people who have never even seen the animal through the books of the late Gavin Maxwell and Henry Williamson. Town dwellers who look for mournful hours into the polluted waters of urban rivers for some sign of life are at the very least able to draw encouragement from...

Speaker's Statement: Economic Affairs and Work and Pensions (8 Jun 2010)

Gavin Williamson: It is a great honour to be called and to follow so many fantastic maiden speeches: when the bar is set so high, it is often easier to duck under it.

It is easy for me to pay tribute not only to my predecessors for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (9 Jun 2010)

Gavin Williamson: I thank my right hon. Friend for announcing the inquiry, which will be welcomed by many of my constituents and others.

Finance Bill (6 Jul 2010)

Friend the Member for Luton South (Gavin Shuker) talked about the balance of risk in the Budget and the worries about problems with infrastructure investment, the fact that it is being cut in his constituency and the implications for...

Finance Bill: Clause 1 — Main rate of corporation tax for financial year 2011 (12 Jul 2010)

Gavin Williamson: I shall try to be brief, as I was always told that brevity is a virtue. I am sure that many hon. Members will be brief in all their contributions this evening.

Members will be hotfooting it there at the weekend if their constituency duties allow....

Delegated Legislation: Backbench Business — [2nd Allotted Day] — Summer Adjournment (27 Jul 2010)

Gavin Williamson: I pay tribute to the excellent maiden speeches made by the hon. Members for Livingston (Graeme Morrice) and for Hyndburn (Graham Jones) and by my hon. Friend the Member for Witham (Priti Patel); they sold their constituencies very well.

Royal Assent: Summer Adjournment (27 Jul 2010)

Barbara Keeley: ...Bury, Rochdale and other parts of Greater Manchester. We ask that Health Ministers listen to local people and resolve the future of our maternity services. The hon. Member for South Staffordshire (Gavin Williamson) talked about cancer drugs. There is much condemnation of primary care trusts when difficult decisions are made about the funding of certain drugs. It is tempting to think that...

Small Businesses (7 Sep 2010)

Gavin Williamson: Does my hon. Friend agree that banks take far too short-term a view of their investment in and support for businesses? What my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) said about banks investing in businesses-in equity-is relevant; it is about having a long-term vision of their future and supporting them so they can grow, much as banks do in Germany.
