Leader of the House: Correspondence (9 Oct 2008)

Paul Goodman: On 22 January, I wrote to the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform on behalf of my constituent, George Young.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Sharia Law (14 Oct 2008)

Paul Goodman: We welcome the Minister to his new post. We also send our best wishes to his predecessor. Over the weekend, the Minister was quoted as saying, in relation to sharia courts: "At some stage in the future I do not rule out the possibility that the Muslim diaspora in this country may be advanced enough". That must mean either that he did not know about the Muslim arbitration tribunals or that he...

Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) (No. 3) Bill: Local Government (15 Oct 2008)

Paul Goodman: Although my hon. Friend the Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) cheered us all up with his knockabout attack on the various follies and errors in Government policy, the debate has necessarily been rather sombre, given the background. It has also been thoughtful and constructive, and I want to respond to some of the main points. I am sorry that the Minister is not in his...

Topical Debate: Defence Policy (30 Oct 2008)

Paul Goodman: Like other hon. Members, I begin by honouring the work that our armed forces are undertaking, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq, and by paying tribute to those who have been wounded and who have died. This is the first time that I have spoken in a defence debate since my election to this House in 2001, which might suggest to Members, if they did not already know, that I am not a defence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: UK-Pakistan Relations (11 Nov 2008)

Paul Goodman: Has the Minister had an opportunity to discuss with his Pakistani counterparts the effect of recent US military strikes on Pakistan? Could he tell us the Government's view of military action that takes place in Pakistan that is not authorised or approved by its Government?

Business of the House (13 Nov 2008)

Paul Goodman: Returning to the theme of being in a learning environment, several of my constituents are as a result of computer problems having difficulty getting into one because they cannot get the education maintenance allowance to which they are entitled.

Petitions: Health Services (Wycombe) (17 Dec 2008)

Paul Goodman: I rise to present a petition, the contents of which are self-explanatory and require no elucidation by me.

Value for Taxpayers' Money (19 Jan 2005)

Paul Goodman: Speaking of debt, my hon. Friend the Member for Tatton (Mr. Osborne) offered the Chief Secretary a menu of prospective Labour tax rises for him to rule out. Will he now rule out all of them? Indeed, will he rule out any of them?

Orders of the Day — Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: New Clause 3 — Racial and religious hatred (7 Feb 2005)

Paul Goodman: Is this not the problem that the hon. Gentleman is trying to get at: under the terms of what the Government are proposing, an imam in my constituency could open himself to prosecution merely by quoting verses from a religious text? That is possible, whereas under the terms of the hon. Gentleman's excellent amendment, it would not.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Incapacity Benefit (28 Feb 2005)

Paul Goodman: We have published proposals to build on the Government's new deal for disabled people, expanding the role of the voluntary sector. Our proposals would reduce the number of existing claimants by 400,000 over the course of a Parliament. Would what the Government recently announced reduce the number by more than that, or less?
