Nick Raynsford: ...behaviour and behaviour which is very damaging to existing residents of the blocks being used, where properties are being converted for such short-term lettings. There was a murder recently in a property in Erebus drive in West Thamesmead, not in the central area of Greenwich, which is perhaps more attractive to tourism, but an area to the eastern edge of my constituency. The matter is...

Prayers: Kyoto Summit (19 Nov 1997)

Mrs Teresa Gorman: ...a one-off event that occurs every few years, and is not significant. That is not true. In the Antarctic region, close to the area where the measurement of ozone holes is carried out, there is a very active volcano, Mount Erebus, which produces in a year more chlorine gases—which contribute to the chlorofluorocarbons in the upper atmosphere—than the whole of industrial...

Opposition Day: Schools (20 Apr 1993)

Andrew Miller: many literary quotes, so why shouldn't I?

Sir Barnett Stross: ..., Lorenzo says: The man that hath no music in himself,Nor is not mov'd with concord of sweet sounds,Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils;The motions of his spirit are dull as night.And his affections dark as Erebus;Let no such man be trusted … Dare I suggest that citizens should not trust any Government that stands between themselves and the enjoyment of the fine arts? As I am...

...reported grounded owing to fog. With full knowledge that the assault troops would, initially, lack close air support, and that the bombardment squadron composed of His Majesty's Ships "Warspite," "Erebus" and "Roberts" would have no air spotting, they decided to go on with the attack in view of the paramount advantages to be gained by simultaneous assaults. The Commando was landed as...
