Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2004)

Mrs Alice Mahon: ...to the people of Falluja. It is an insult to anybody who thinks about Falluja. Captain Paul Batty of the 3rd Battalion of the Marines has said that people might be returning on Christmas eve. Only male citizens will be allowed in, in limited numbers. The US is offering $500 for every house that has been destroyed. There are suggestions coming from the general responsible that there should...

Pre-Budget Report 2004 (16 Dec 2004)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...was reiterated in another place by the Shadow Chancellor, Oliver Letwin. Curiously, it was referred to in the debate on the previous Bill about half an hour ago. In doing so, I am mindful that the setting of taxes is the prerogative of that other place, although the impact of taxation policy and the manner in which it is interpreted and portrayed is reasonably within our purview. I have...

Written Answers — Health: Local Authorities/Primary CareTrusts (16 Dec 2004)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ...information requested is shown in the table. The spearhead group is based upon the local authorities (LAs) which are in the "worst" fifth of areas for three or more of the following five factors: Male life expectancy at birth. Female life expectancy at birth. Cancer mortality rate, under 75s. Circulatory disease mortality rate, under 75s. Index of Multiple Deprivation 2004 (LA summary),...

Football (15 Dec 2004)

Lord Addington: ...take those responsibilities seriously, but how do we do that, if we do not want to get involved in day-to-day legislation? We can support everything that they do. Supporters Direct, the body that sets up the trust that has influence over the fans, is probably the most positive thing to come out of the English football system for a very long time. It means that those who, with religious...

Oral Answers to Questions — Minister for Women: Engineering (9 Dec 2004)

Jacqui Smith: There has been progress in the past 10 years. The increase in the number of female science, engineering and technology graduates has been larger than the increase in the number of their male counterparts. However, we still have a long way to go, which is why the resource centre was set up. It will also find ways, as the hon. Gentleman rightly said, to overcome misapprehensions about...

Crime Prevention (8 Dec 2004)

the Bishop of Salisbury: ...are living in hell and we are all ghosts'. She has thoughts she can't control and voices in her head. She has been in trouble with the police since she was 11, stealing, terrorising the neighbours, setting fire to things. Recently, she cut a girl: 'Sometimes I feel I have to cut people up if I don't like them. Sometimes it only takes them to do one thing and, if I don't like it, then I'll...

Borough Freedom (Family Succession) Bill [HL] (7 Dec 2004)

Lord Graham of Edmonton: ...recently. The power and influence of the freemen of Newcastle was and is such that they could and did withstand the power of that famous football team. The noble and learned Lord, Lord Mustill, set out the arguments cogently and, in my opinion, persuasively. I am deeply indebted to him for allowing me to use his arguments today. He wishes the Bill well. This Bill will eliminate a gender...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse Services (2 Dec 2004)

Malcolm Chisholm: ...I am going on the march at six o'clock and I must get through my speech before then. In addition, as Mark Ballard pointed out, research that the Executive published in 2002 shows that, in general, male victims are less likely to be repeat victims of assault, to be seriously injured or to report feeling fearful in their own homes. As Carolyn Leckie said, men and women typically have...

Sexual Equality (EUC Report) (2 Dec 2004)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: ...the purpose of insurance and related financial services. The European Commission rightly noted in its report that equal treatment for women and men is a fundamental right to which the freedom to set tariffs must be subordinated. It pointed out that separating men and women into separate pools is discriminatory. It leads to an unjustified difference of treatment, resulting in disadvantage...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (30 Nov 2004)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ..., who is a west-country neighbour of mine. He is very well known as the chairman of the Countryside Agency but perhaps less well known to most of your Lordships—although much appreciated in Somerset—for the terrific contribution that both he and his wife, Lady Cameron, make to Somerset life. The noble Lord puts into practice the matters to which, no doubt, he will be speaking in your...

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (25 Nov 2004)

Margaret Smith: ...resources to tackle some of those issues. The minister mentioned a few of them in her speech. The issue is clearly one of gender inequality. Pauline McNeill, Elaine Smith and many other speakers set it in that context. In her very passionate contribution, Cathy Peattie expressed it well when she said that violence does affect other people, but it affects women disproportionately. Domestic...

Written Ministerial Statements — Health: Tackling Health Inequalities (25 Nov 2004)

Miss Melanie Johnson: The Public Health White Paper, "Choosing Health—Making Healthy Choices Easier" set out the importance of ensuring that as the country strives to improve its health a priority must be given to tackling health inequalities so that all groups in society benefit from improvements in public health. The Government have set public service agreement targets to address geographical inequalities in...

Scottish Parliament: Lung Cancer (24 Nov 2004)

Rhona Brankin: ...again, although members have covered them already. About 25,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year in Scotland. Among those cases, lung cancer is the most common; it accounts for 17 per cent of all cancers and more than 4,100 cases are diagnosed each year. However, it is not all bad news. The incidence of lung cancer in males has been falling significantly since 1990. It has gone...

Learning-Disabled Athletes (23 Nov 2004)

Martin Caton: ...the exclusion of learning-disabled athletes came about and what was done at that time to try to rectify the problem. The Paralympic Committee's decision came about after it was discovered that 10 male Spanish basketball players in the Sydney Paralympics of 2000 had cheated because they did not have the learning disability that they claimed to have. That led first to the suspension of the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Northern Ireland: Catholic and Protestant Unemployment Rates (18 Nov 2004)

Baroness Amos: Information in relation to Catholic and Protestant unemployment rates is available from the Labour Force Survey. The earliest period held for such figures by religion is 1990 and these are set out in the table below. The table shows the most recent annual data available. The unemployment differential was 1.8 in 1990 and 1.9 in 2002. In respect of males the ratio was 2.0 in 1990 and 1.9 in...

Lords Amendment (17 Nov 2004)

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: ...which an annuity must be purchased for occupational pension schemes. Personal pensions were introduced in July 1988 with an annuity ceiling of 75 years. In 1994, the average life expectancy for a male at age 65 was approximately 79 years. In other words, the expectancy was that people would potentially have four years to enjoy a stream of retirement income. In comparison, on the period...

Vehicle Servicing Industry (Regulation) (17 Nov 2004)

Chris Ruane: ...legislation. Unfortunately, the scheme received a mixed reception in industry circles, and the industry finally withdrew, refusing to fund it. The scheme would have cost about £10 million to set up—only 35p for every car on the road in the UK. The industry claimed that the consumer would be up in arms about having to pay that 35p per year and per car for the service. Which? could not...

Orders of the Day — Pensions Bill: Removal of compulsion to take annuities (16 Nov 2004)

Mr Adrian Flook: ...is not followed anywhere else in the world and I cannot see that the singular benefits of the British system provide any reason to continue it. The other problem with the current system is that it sets up an unbreakable contract for the remainder of the life of the annuitant. As we heard so eloquently from my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth, West, there is usually only a single...

Health White Paper (16 Nov 2004)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...be incurred if nothing was done until 2020, the Government have started to grasp the nettle. But have they made a real estimate of the reduction of those costs that would result from the action set out in the White Paper? That would be telling. There is much to welcome in the White Paper—and I shall not comment at length about those areas of common ground—but certainly the additional...

Public Health White Paper (16 Nov 2004)

John Reid: ...and offering security to those who want to choose a healthier life; it is about people improving themselves. In the White Paper, it is the public, not Whitehall, who, for the first time have set the agenda and identified what "for their own good" means. Over the past eight months, we have consulted, discussed, listened, canvassed and calculated public opinion on a wider scale than ever...
