Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Andrew Gwynne: Perhaps my nostalgia is greater than the hon. Lady’s, because I believe that my Nokia “brick” was far more reliable than my Apple iPhone has ever been.

Businesses and SMEs - Motion to Take Note (6 Jul 2017)

Lord Fraser of Corriegarth: ...employed than when he is making money”. The social benefits of the existence of a business culture are legion. Commerce, when properly regulated, brings enormous benefits to particular geographical areas. The advent of Nokia, for example, transformed Finland. Where would Australia be but for the exploitation of its mineral assets? This may be compared to Bangladesh, whose minerals,...

Smart Metering: Electricity and Gas — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (9 Feb 2017)

Graham Stringer: ...and to have the control on their smartphone as well. That would solve the problem of the system not working if they changed supplier and of having to go somewhere to look at the meter. I was in the British Embassy in Finland nearly 17 years ago, when a representative of Nokia showed me how he could close the curtains in his house and change which electrical appliances were working. Yet we...

Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Angela Crawley: ...networks, messenger services, chatrooms, playing online and mobile phones. Anecdotally, as one of the younger Members in the Chamber, I received my first mobile phone at the age of 13. It was a Nokia 2210, on which someone could play snake or push their luck by texting home and asking if they could stay out late. That was what mobiles meant to me and my generation but times have certainly...

House of Lords: Domestic Committees - Motion to Take Note (9 May 2016)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: ...very convenient to be following the chairman of the Information Committee as I wanted to say a few words about that. First, I can tell the noble Baroness, Lady Donaghy, that I am delighted with my Nokia and do not need an iPhone. However, I am concerned about the very wide duties and remit of the Information Committee and the fact that it will be subsumed into the new services committee,...

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 — Onshore wind power: renewables obligation (14 Mar 2016)

Jonathan Edwards: says that the Government need to promote renewables instead of fossil fuels? Indeed, it says that an energy policy based on fossil fuels is a smartphone equivalent of placing all our bets on Nokia as opposed to Apple and Samsung.

Mobile Phone Signal (Fownhope) (6 Jan 2015)

Ed Vaizey: ...astonishing computing power. We should be alive to what my hon. Friend says. For example, some people who might have a faux retro nod to the past are keen to go on eBay and buy some old phones such as Nokia ones. They do so for two reasons: one is battery life, but the other is voice coverage. The more sophisticated some phones get, the worse their aerials become. The iPhone that we all...

Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill — Second Reading (16 Jul 2014)

Lord Blencathra: ...changes. The Home Office says that there is a capability gap of 25% in the information it collects now as compared to 2000. My committee was highly sceptical about that. In 2000, I had a top-of-the-range Nokia phone which held about 100 phone numbers and 120 short text messages. I wish I had that phone back. In 2000, only 50% of UK adults had a mobile phone. In 2012, that figure was 92%...

Bill Presented — Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill: Retirement of the Clerk of the House (16 Jul 2014)

Alan Haselhurst: ...walking along the corridor, and from his door, which was ever open, I was beckoned. He proceeded to show me his smartphone which had all the details and scoreboard of every cricket match being played. My Nokia was dispatched very soon afterwards. Mr Speaker, you will recognise as well as any that the performance in the Chair of those who are privileged to occupy it is dependent to a great...

David Willetts: ...industry—both small and large businesses. With these amendments we are tackling specific concerns raised in intensive discussions with IP experts and industry representatives, such as BAE Systems, Nokia, Dyson and others—the creators of design IP in this country. The Government amendments ensure that the law is as clear as possible and that it fully achieves the...

Scottish Parliament: Public Science Engagement Initiatives (21 May 2013)

Iain Gray: Nokia once ran a series of advertisements in which an overblown voice-over followed ordinary-looking people doing ordinary things quite anonymously, such as taking the bus home from work. The point was that they were the scientists behind the communication technology that was daily revolutionising our lives. They were of course not the celebrities that the narrator implied, but were...

Scottish Parliament: Electrical Safety in the Private Rented Sector (21 May 2013)

Iain Gray: Nokia once ran a series of advertisements in which an overblown voice-over followed ordinary-looking people doing ordinary things quite anonymously, such as taking the bus home from work. The point was that they were the scientists behind the communication technology that was daily revolutionising our lives.

Cities — Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2012)

Baroness Sharp of Guildford: ...built itself to be a hub of growth within its local region of Catalonia. Again, Helsinki in Finland, which 20 years before had been a dull city, had also taken itself forward-partly on the back of Nokia and the electronics revolution-to become much more important and another hub of growth. I was interested in the role of cities within their sub-regions and regions, and I was interested in...

David Willetts: ...academic R&D and we have the fourth highest concentration of the world's top 1,400 international companies for R&D expenditure, including companies such as Rolls-Royce, Ford, Pfizer, Airbus, Eli Lilly, Eisai, Nokia, Syngenta, Merck and Motorola. And the UK is Europe's most successful country in attracting research-driven inward investment. We are also working to reverse the...

Marine Operations (Weymouth) (11 Oct 2011)

Mike Penning: ...; I appreciate that there have been problems with communications over the years. When Bowman first came in for the military there was a lot of concern about resilience, and when I visited an exercise as a new MP I was told that Bowman stood for “better off with map and Nokia”, but it has developed a lot and I have seen it in use in operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. We needed...

Public Bill Committee: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: Schedule 1 - Terrorism prevention and investigation measures (28 Jun 2011)

Hazel Blears: ...trial for the bomb attempts that took place last year. The report said that terrorists tried 15 times to detonate two car bombs filled with petrol, gas and 2,000 nails in central London. The displays of Nokia mobile phones left in each car revealed several missed calls; they had been dialled up to four times each. By the time that happens, it does not matter how much monitoring we do. What...

Backbench Business — [27th Allotted Day]: Rural Broadband and Mobile Coverage (19 May 2011)

John Woodcock: It is interesting that the hon. Gentleman mentions my former boss, the former Prime Minister, and mobile phones. His robust, old-school Nokia survived many trials and tribulations, during even my time working for him. Those rumours are not true, by the way—just to be clear. Look, investment was made. There are real questions about whether there was enough investment, and about whether...
