Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Nicholas Boles: ...hon. Member for East Antrim but by the hon. Member for Dundee East and the hon. Member for North East Fife (Stephen Gethins), and I now understand better the importance of immigration not only to the Scottish economy but to Scottish society. There is an important detail about the emergency brake in articles 112 and 113 of the EEA agreement, which is that it talks about regional impacts...

Charitable Healthcare Providers (Value Added Tax Relief): New Clause 3 — Decisions subject to special referral procedure in TFEU (8 Mar 2011)

Chris Heaton-Harris: I should begin by apologising to the House for being so keen to table a number of new clauses and amendments at this late stage. It is not as if there is anything better going on in my life. It is not that Arsenal are playing Barcelona tonight, and I could have been watching that. Actually, as a referee I do not like Arsenal that much, but I could have been refereeing the football game...

Orders of the Day — Transport (Railway Finances) Bill (3 Dec 1956)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: ...locomotive engineer was on the committee, but very extensive tests were conducted. In paragraph 79, the committee says: The technical evidence set out in Part I shows that the advantages of the air brake progressively increase as the weight and length of freight trains becomes greater. At paragraph 82, the committee says: It is clear that present operating requirements would just be met by...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (26 May 1921)

On the other hand, if the Great Northern was ordered to build locomotives corresponding to those used by the other companies all the money would be wasted which has been spent on strengthening roads and providing engines to haul large trains. The right hon. Gentleman thinks that is a proper thing to do, and the Great Northern has now an engine which hauls 1,300 tons. There is a plain simple...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Roads: Air Pollution (11 Dec 2020)

Rebecca Pow: Defra is supporting work on how air quality is affected by road surface wear and road dust resuspension by gathering evidence needed and feeding in views to inform effective policies. In July 2018 we published a call for evidence[1] to improve our understanding of the extent and impact of emissions from brake, tyre and road wear and potential ways to address them, to inform future policy...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Railways: Noise (29 Oct 2008)

Lord Adonis: The European Commission estimates that fitting composite brake systems can reduce noise from freight wagons by up to eight decibels. A substantial number of UK freight wagons are already fitted with such systems. European Union rules governing the construction of freight wagons, provided for in the Freight Wagon Technical Specifications for Interoperability, require the fitment of spark...

Orders of the Day — Highway Code (31 Jul 1946)

Mr Anthony Marlowe: Exactly. The hon. and learned Gentleman is right. I will not go over it again; it was only to illustrate the absurdity of the language used. Let me give an even more cogent example. If hon. Members look at the last paragraph on page 29 they will see the evidence of two breaches of good drafting. The first is: Never brake or accelerate violently at a corner; it may induce skidding. One agrees...

Written Answers — Transport: Motor Vehicles: Lighting (14 Oct 2013)

Robert Goodwill: There are no plans to undertake a review of the effect of fog lamps on the visibility of brake lamps. Since October 2000, all new passenger cars have been fitted with a third centrally high mounted brake lamp which has the benefit of separating the stop lamp and fog lamp illumination and alert following drivers to a slowing vehicle.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (25 Oct 2022)

Margaret Hodge: Q The other brake on pursuing the bad people is the fear of failure, and therefore the burden of costs on the public purse. Would you like to see the cost capping that has been introduced on unexplained wealth orders extended here, or do you have other ideas about how we can try to make that brake less solid?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Railway Traffic (Brake Regulations). (3 Nov 1932)

Mr George Hicks: Is it not a fact that the minimum brake pressure permitted is 18 pounds? If the brake pressure regis- tered is less than 18 pounds and it may be dangerous to traffic and to individuals, would not the workman be perfectly justified in refusing to work the train, and would not the Minister of Transport support him in refusing to work it under those conditions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Motor Vehicles (Brakes and Lights) (21 Jun 1961)

Mr Ernest Marples: All cars are at present required to have two independent means of brake operation; if one fails there must still be sufficient braking power to bring the vehicle to rest. My technical officers started discussions with the motor industry same time ago about the possible revision of current requirements. In these discussions the merits of divided service brake systems will be given full weight.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Vehicle Tests (11 Mar 1959)

Mr Graham Page: Does not it involve grave danger and inconvenience to traffic if brake testing takes place on public roads? Is there any shortage of brake-testing instruments within the testing garages?

Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: New Clause 3 - Mechanically propelled vehicles on unsealed roads: removal of burdens (25 Mar 2014)

Tom Brake: I am happy to give way as long as it is not a brake joke.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Transport: Heavy Goods Vehicles (21 Mar 2012)

Earl Attlee: The following figures are taken from Vehicle and Operator Services Agency effectiveness report available from: corporatereports/2010-2011reportsuite/corporatereports-2010- 2011vosaeffectivenessreport.htm Table A1.3 HGV motor vehicle initial test fail rate by age Age Apr-Feb 2011/12 2010-11 2009-10 2008-09 Up to 1 year 8.1% 8.2% 8.2%...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (8 May 2014)

Rehman Chishti: Driver distraction is a major cause of death and serious injury on our roads, and it has been the focus of a leading campaign by the charity Brake. What are the Government doing to work with such organisations to tackle driver distraction? By way of a digression, I was given the “parliamentarian of the year” award by Brake for campaigning on road safety.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Groceries Supplies (Code of Conduct) (12 Nov 2009)

Philip Hollobone: In Desborough in my constituency, the Co-op has the only supermarket in town and it has restrictive covenants on other sites where supermarkets might locate. Those covenants are effectively acting as a brake on the economic redevelopment of the town. What will the Government do to ensure that they do not act as a brake on economic growth?

Mindfulness in Schools — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (6 Sep 2016)

Siobhain McDonagh: Does my hon. Friend agree that those soft skills also provide a brake between thought and action? In the case of self-harming, which seems to be increasing exponentially, they are an important brake on action and on injuring oneself—particularly for girls. Some of our schools are becoming the biggest procurers of mental health services outside the NHS.

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witness (19 Jan 2021)

Doug Brake: As you mentioned, my name is Doug Brake. I am the director of broadband and spectrum policy for the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. We are a think-tank based in Washington DC, focused on policies that we believe advance innovation, with the basic belief that innovation is the key to economic growth and human flourishing over the long term.

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill (26 Feb 1946)

This Bill was presented to us by the Attorney-General as "a modest little Bill." I thought the words were peculiar at the time. I wonder whether he had then had his attention directed to a statement made by Sir Walter Citrine, which was published in the Labour Press Service on 9th January, 1946. If he had, I do not think his expression was very candid, because this is what Sir Walter Citrine...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Alex Chalk: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is clear that if David Cameron had been able to secure a form of emergency brake, it is more likely than not that the UK would have voted to remain? If EFTA does allow for third-party trade deals plus the introduction of an emergency brake, while ousting the jurisdiction of the ECJ, it should merit the closest consideration.
