Travellers' Sites (15 Dec 2004)

Paul Clark: I congratulate the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome (Mr. Heath) on securing the debate, on what is undoubtedly an important issue in terms of how planning applies to Gypsy and Traveller communities. I suspect that not a single Member of the House has not had to deal with such issues. I also thank the hon. Gentleman for the way in which he approached the issue, because there is a need for a...

European Affairs (15 Dec 2004)

Paul Clark: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion. Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Ethical Recruitment (12 Jul 2005)

Paul Clark: I welcome the Minister's response as there is a need for a strong recruitment code in the NHS in respect of developing countries. Does she agree that there is a need for the NHS to share its expertise with such countries and those that are developing their own services? To that end, will she welcome the work of the Kent and Medway strategic health authority, which is currently hosting 10...

Local Government Funding (Kent) (10 Nov 2005)

Paul Clark: Nonsense.

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — BBC: Planning (21 Jun 2006)

Paul Clark: The hon. Lady talks about biodiversity. If she believes that the development of garden land threatens, as it says in the motion, "urban biodiversity and environmental sustainability in towns and cities", does she, on the same grounds, reject the proposal by the right hon. Member for Wokingham (Mr. Redwood), the chair of her party's policy group on economic competitiveness, to concrete over...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Listed Places of Worship Scheme (5 Mar 2007)

Paul Clark: What assessment the Church Commissioners have made of the Listed Places of Worship Scheme; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Listed Places of Worship Scheme (5 Mar 2007)

Paul Clark: I thank my hon. Friend for that response. May I draw his attention to churches such as St. Margaret's in Rainham parish, which is part of my constituency, where the congregation is valiantly trying to raise more than £1 million to save the roof of the Norman building, their having been turned down bythe listed places of worship scheme on a number of occasions? My concern is that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Volunteers (12 Dec 2007)

Paul Clark: What steps the Government are taking to increase training opportunities for volunteers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Volunteers (12 Dec 2007)

Paul Clark: I thank my hon. Friend for that response. He will know that volunteers and voluntary organisations the length and breadth of the country are important in building sustainable and stronger communities, no more so than two projects in my constituency: the Activity Loft on the Vineries estate and the Sunlight centre. Both are award-winning projects. What steps will he take to ensure that they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Apprenticeships (10 Jan 2008)

Paul Clark: What recent discussions his Department has had on the availability of apprenticeships; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Apprenticeships (10 Jan 2008)

Paul Clark: I thank my hon. Friend for that response and I welcome the expansion in the number of apprenticeships. Along with that review will come further development. My constituents in Gillingham and Rainham will undoubtedly benefit from apprenticeships. I am worried, however. As this is a regeneration area where much work has been done on identifying shortfalls in skills opportunities and where we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Topical Questions (10 Jan 2008)

Paul Clark: At the end of November, our right hon. Friend the Prime Minister launched a multi-million pound plan for the regeneration area of the Thames Gateway. An integral part of that plan was the skills, training and opportunities sector. What progress has my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State made with the commitment to deliver three new campuses throughout the gateway area? Will he accept an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Jul 2008)

Paul Clark: My right hon. Friend will be aware of the importance of volunteers and the voluntary sector in our communities, as amply demonstrated by the Sunlight Development Trust in my constituency, which is leading on social enterprise work and campaigns locally. However, there is concern that central Government support for the third sector must continue, so what steps will my right hon. Friend take to...

M3 (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: I congratulate the hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs. Miller) on securing this debate, and providing us with the opportunity to discuss noise pollution and congestion on the M3. I know that it is a matter of concern, and the hon. Members for Winchester (Mr. Oaten) and for North-West Hampshire also contributed to the discussion. I am aware of the keen interest that the hon. Member for...

M3 (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: What the hon. Lady can certainly take from my comments is that we look at all possible and affordable options. That is where we have to be. The programme on the various road surfacing and changes that are ahead, which I shall run through in response to her final points, obviously has to be subject to the funding available. The hon. Lady has said, and rightly so, that we have specifically...

M3 (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: I am more than happy to give an undertaking to listen to people who are at the sharp end—whether in relation to operating businesses or living and working in a community. I am more than happy to meet a delegation and directly listen to their concerns.

South Central Rail Franchise (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Sir John Stanley) on securing this debate, and on providing the House with this opportunity to discuss these important issues based on the new South Central rail franchise. I am delighted that he has had the opportunity to speak for more than the traditional amount of time. I should also like to thank him for his kind words...

South Central Rail Franchise (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman would not wish me, or come to that the Secretary of State, to dictate to Passenger Focus what report it should present. However, I can tell the right hon. Gentleman that Passenger Focus conducted surveys of some 6,500 South Central passengers seeking their views on areas of deficiency and the improvements that they wanted to see. It is on that basis...

South Central Rail Franchise (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: I was just coming on to precisely the point about the potential customers for rail services. The Gatwick services have been in existence for more than 10 years. The right hon. Gentleman said in his opening comments that the Minister would probably respond by saying services were not being used and were under-utilised. That is exactly what the position has been—the demand has been very low....

South Central Rail Franchise (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Clark: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that where we have an infrastructure and we are trying to achieve the best possible utilisation, there may well be consequences as a result of required changes. In such cases, one looks at the services that are being best utilised and where there is a possibility of increasing capacity. For example, increased capacity is available for the travelling public at...
