Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Pitt Report (17 Dec 2008)

Angela Browning: The Secretary of State will be aware that on 30 October the small town of Ottery St. Mary and many surrounding villages in my constituency were flooded at 2 in the morning, with 4 in of rain coming down in an hour and 3 ft of hail, which was still sitting there two days later. My own home and those of my neighbours were flooded for the second time in 11 years; we all hope to be back in by...

Royal Assent: Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2008)

Angela Browning: Although the right hon. Member for Leicester, East (Keith Vaz) is no longer in the Chamber, I do not want to disappoint him. I welcome all Members to my beautiful constituency in Devon, where when they have feasted at home, they will find the moors and the beaches are wonderful places to walk off all the extra chocolate that we have been warned about.

Royal Assent: Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2008)

Angela Browning: I shall not talk about the trains because I want to talk about a problem we have with the M5, which goes through the middle of my constituency. Junction 28, at the small town of Cullompton, was part of the original motorway, but over the years services have been developed on the eastbound carriageway and it is now an official motorway services area. Unfortunately, the infrastructure of the...

Royal Assent: Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2008)

Angela Browning: I will not, if the hon. Lady does not mind, because I realise that not everybody will get to contribute if I do not keep my remarks brief. I want to make one more quick point. It is about generic prescribing. I had a letter from a young man who has to take drugs for his epilepsy every day. He pointed out to me that he has great difficulty because of generic prescribing. When he goes to get...

Royal Assent: Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2008)

Angela Browning: I am very grateful that I was not cast as Grandma.

Points of Order (13 Jan 2005)

Angela Browning: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I am aware that a Committee of the House can investigate complaints by hon. Members about the answering of written parliamentary questions. However, owing to my latest experience, may I ask you to review whether the procedure assists us in implementing Standing Orders? On 8 November, I tabled a named day question to the Department for Environment, Food and...

Orders of the Day — Consumer Credit Bill (13 Jan 2005)

Angela Browning: Does the Minister agree that, when people get into financial difficulties and need advice, the sooner they seek that advice, the better? One of the most accessible places for them to go is their local citizens advice bureau. Does the Minister share my concern that, as a result of local government settlements and grants, there are worries about the viability of some of our CABs and about their...

Food Supplements Directive (25 Jan 2005)

Angela Browning: Given the Minister's response to my hon. Friend's invitation to her to stand up and demonstrate her knowledge on the subject, is he as alarmed as I am that she indicates that she does not know, as she asks the Opposition to provide such information, but she is quite prepared to trust the Brussels machine, with its lack of knowledge?

Food Supplements Directive (25 Jan 2005)

Angela Browning: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Food Supplements Directive (25 Jan 2005)

Angela Browning: My hon. Friend is being very generous. Of course, the reality of our treaty-bound relationship with the European Union is that under those treaties, we do not have mutual recognition of goods and services; rather, we have the vertical integration of harmonisation bound by treaty. Whatever Greece, France or Italy do is almost academic, because such countries can start infraction proceedings...

European Union (3 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: I notice that the Foreign Secretary is going for "better" regulation. We all recall that his Government set up a Better Regulation Task Force when they first took office, but they quickly abandoned it because it was not effective. Why does he not go for less regulation instead of "better", and why does he not remove the EU's competences over regulation in this country? British businesses,...

Orders of the Day — European Union Bill (9 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: On renegotiating existing treaties, surely the question should not be what the EU thinks about that, but what the British people think. An ICM poll in November showed that the British people want renegotiation, and that even more younger people than older people support that proposal.

Orders of the Day — European Union Bill (9 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: Does the right hon. Lady think that it is fair that the yes and no campaigns in referendums have only a six-month period, but the Government can continue spending money until 28 days before the referendum takes place? After all, the Government are already spending a lot of our money on this campaign.

Orders of the Day — European Union Bill (9 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: I am very pleased to follow the hon. Member for Luton, North (Mr. Hopkins). I have listened carefully to this afternoon's debate. I have had the opportunity to speak on this subject twice in the past year, and I do not want to repeat a lot of what I have already said. I would, however, like to build on some of the points that have been raised today. I do not regard the treaty as just another...

Orders of the Day — European Union Bill (9 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: My hon. Friend says, "Blame No. 10". Well, I was a Minister in the last Conservative Government and I have to tell him that, as a Minister, I had great difficulty trying to argue the case when some of these proposals were made. We talk about competition within the single market and I am a great believer in free trade, but there are 22 other countries out there that have free-trade agreements...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Overseas Electoral Registration (21 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: My hon. Friend the Member for Gosport (Mr. Viggers) is abroad on NATO Parliamentary Assembly business, and I have been asked to reply in his absence. The Electoral Commission has been working in close partnership with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to improve the information available to potential overseas voters. To that end, the commission has asked embassies, high commissions and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Overseas Electoral Registration (21 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: Yes, I can give my hon. Friend that assurance. On the question of the website, I am a little confused about how easy it will be for people to access such information. I will ask the commission to talk again to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to see whether getting information on overseas voting can be made easier for those accessing that website. As for a post-election wash-up, I am happy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Overseas Electoral Registration (21 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: I know that my hon. Friend has raised this issue many times and is very concerned about it. The commission, on whose behalf I am answering, is undertaking a range of activities to contact service personnel about voter registration. That includes editorial work in service publications and media broadcasts, an information leaflet to be distributed in partnership with the Ministry of Defence,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Overseas Electoral Registration (21 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: The Electoral Commission has a remit and a duty to ensure voting at all levels and in all places. It has not spent money disproportionately on overseas registration. Rightly, however, it has a duty to ensure that people overseas are aware of their right to vote and to facilitate that as much as possible.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Overseas Electoral Registration (21 Feb 2005)

Angela Browning: The hon. Gentleman is right in asking, especially as we may be close to an election, that the commission should prompt the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to do as much as it can. He may like to know that at its prompting, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office sent out a telegram on 3 February, making sure that as many as possible of our embassies, consulates and high commissions were aware of...
