Oral Answers to Questions — Education: New Secondary School, Romsey (16 Dec 1954)

Mr. Smithers: asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware of the need for a new secondary school in Romsey to provide for the surrounding villages of Lockerley, Michelmersh, Sherfield English and West Tytherley, and to replace the existing temporary provision for children from Romsey, Ampfield, Crampmoor and Braishfield; and whether he will now authorise the building of such a school.

Orders of the Day — Income Tax (MR. a. W. Farrow) (10 May 1971)

Mr David Stoddart: Somerset. He is 86 years old and has an ailing wife of 85, and he owes £107 to the Inland Revenue Department, which is pursuing him for that amount. Then there is the case of a man of 69 living in Romsey, who has had to find a job and borrow money because of arrears and the refusal of the tax authorities to extend the period of payment. These are heartrending cases and the public at...

Local Government (Successor Parishes) (12 Dec 1973)

Mr David Mitchell: ...13 out of 43 councillors on the new district council represent Andover. It is not a council within a council, and there is no duplication. It is part of a district council that has its headquarters in Romsey, 8 miles away. Romsey has its successor parish council, and every other parish in l he whole of the new Test Valley authority except Andover will have its successor parish. Far from...

Orders of the Day — System-built Houses (12 Mar 1984)

Christopher Chope: ...director of Reema Construction, which is based just outside Southampton. About a year ago that company organised an independent technical survey on two of its houses built just after the war in Romsey. The result of that detailed technical survey was encouraging, the conclusions of which included this comment: Neither of the two premises examined showed any fault or signs of deterioration...

Petitions: Human Embryos (21 Dec 1984)

Mr Michael Colvin: I beg to ask leave to present three petitions from residents in Romsey and Waterside entitled "Petition for the protection of the human embryo". The first was initiated by Mrs. J. Mason of 153 Woodlands road, Ashurst and contains 1,205 signatures; the second by Mr. C. F. Mackrell of 16 Fox Hills, Totton, and bears 25 signatures; the third by Mrs. E. M. Hurst of Bryn-Gower, Awbridge, and bears...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Bill (13 Dec 1988)

Mr Michael Colvin: ...built hitherto. Yesterday, we heard hon. Members talk about alternatives such as combined heat and power as more effective ways of making full use of our fossil fuels. The Bill is certainly welcome in Romsey and Waterside. It is also welcome to Hampshire ratepayers because it will save them about £1 million, which is the cost of fighting the public inquiry into the proposed power station...

Arts and Heritage ( 4 Jul 1990)

Mr Michael Colvin: .... The answer is that some very good initiatives have been taken by the local authorities. My right hon. Friend the Minister for the Arts has been to my constituency and seen one such initiative in Romsey, where the Romsey amateur operatic and dramatic society has done great things to establish a theatre and now has a thriving triennial arts festival under the chairmanship of the...

Southampton Rapid Transit Bill [Lords] (31 Jan 1991)

Mr Michael Colvin: ...the interventions by my hon. Friends. I have distinct reservations. The failure of the scheme to connect directly with the suburbs is of paramount importance because it means that my constituents in Romsey could not get straight on to it to come into Southampton, bat would have to clog up the roads to get there. There are problems in the Waterside part of my constituency where the A326 is...

Orders of the Day — Badgers Bill (15 Feb 1991)

Mr Michael Colvin: ...Misuse Bill, I initially thought that people would not be particularly interested in it, but then I found that they were. I received a large postbag of mail and people stopped me in the high street in Romsey to say, "That is a good Bill." I am sure that when the hon. Member for Newport, East returns to his constituency a t the weekend, people will stop him to say, "Well done." We say that...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence (16 Nov 1995)

Mr Michael Colvin: ..., who has considerable experience of the Royal Air Force and the defence industry, made the argument extremely well. I wish to mention a constituency issue. Many Vosper Thornycroft workers live in Romsey and Waterside and have a considerable interest in the outcome of the two-horse race between GEC Yarrow and Vosper Thornycroft for the orders for the final batch of three type 23 frigates....

Business of the House (11 May 2000)

Margaret Beckett: ...were relieved to have hung on—albeit not especially substantially—to the hon. Gentleman's constituency in the by-election, they would be unwise to ignore both the turnout and the result in Romsey.

Opposition Day: Future of the Teaching Profession (16 May 2000)

Sandra Gidley: ...I still find it difficult to believe that they are no longer with us. On a personal level, they are missed by many people in the constituency. Many hon. Members attended the moving memorial service in Romsey abbey, and then had a small taste of what Romsey has to offer. Romsey is regarded by many people as a rural constituency. Although I grant that the constituency includes a large,...

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (22 Jun 2000)

Earl Russell: that we both think that there is a question which needs an answer. But, in the end, whether or not we think it irrelevant, the voters think it in very large numbers. I spent quite a long time in Romsey; I spent even longer telephone canvassing. I shall not soon forget a half-hour argument with a lifelong Labour voter who told me that he was never again going to vote for anyone. At the...

European Affairs (23 Nov 2000)

Menzies Campbell: ...currency and on future developments in Europe. I have no concern about that, because I and my party are perfectly willing to take those arguments head to head. Indeed, recent political experience in Romsey suggests to us that, when we take arguments head to head, success sometimes follows. We are certainly prepared to argue the case not only for Europe, but for the single European...

Scottish Parliament: Europe (30 Nov 2000)

Jamie Stone: this and I wonder about Mr McLetchie's independence from Mr William Hague and his cohorts down in England. They think Europe is a vote winner for them, but we know that it is not, as we proved in Romsey and will do so again in the next general election. Mr McLetchie is flogging a dead horse. However, it is a dangerous argument as there is too much at stake. We have to demolish the Tory...

Orders of the Day — Home Affairs and Inner Cities (12 Dec 2000)

Simon Hughes: No, I will not give way. The hon. Gentleman intervened twice on the right hon. Member for Maidstone and The Weald; somebody else can have a turn later. The Tories are confused. They still have not sorted out whether asylum seekers should be detained or housed only in reception centres. They still have not decided whether they believe in mandatory sentences. They first believed in mandatory...

Electoral Reform (17 Jan 2001)

Stephen Twigg: ...achieve the best possible Labour representation in this place--but we could have a system that enabled people to vote according to their conviction rather than tactically. In last year's by-election in Romsey, the Labour vote collapsed. I do not believe that the Labour party is uniquely unpopular in Romsey. Rather, ordinary Labour voters decided to vote for the Liberal Democrats, for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Recruitment (Hampshire) ( 2 Jul 2001)

Sandra Gidley: I wish I could share the Minister's optimism, but unfortunately in Romsey we are only too acutely aware of the decrease in police numbers, as we have lost seven officers recently. Bearing in mind the fact that many young police men and women in Hampshire cannot contribute to the police pension fund because they simply cannot manage on the money, and that the chief constable asked for £2,000...

Cancer Services (South-East) ( 7 May 2002)

Sandra Gidley: ...the way of the world these days. I want to mention briefly Jane Scarth house, which is part of something called Cancer Concern. It is a walk-in centre close to the local Waitrose, in the high street in Romsey—an excellent idea. It provides information, support and counselling. You name it, it does it—from helping women to look good when they have to wear a wig, and really do not want...

Non-Vocational Education (Hampshire) (20 Jul 2004)

Sandra Gidley: ...of it and Think You're Young Enough to Enjoy it". Let me quote from one of the letters to the Prime Minister, which sums up the situation and the concerns of many: "I attend a day time Art Class in Romsey, Hampshire and have been advised that the charges are being increased significantly next term as the Learning and Skills Council is withdrawing funding from such courses. I understand...
