Anti-freeze Products (Protection of Animals) (2 Dec 2014)

George Eustice: this time of year. As he said, he takes no joy in having to come to this Chamber to raise the issue. I completely understand that the death by poisoning of such a large number of cats in Calverton has caused immense stress to the families involved. Every one of those 22 cats would have been a loved family pet. The situation is made all the worse by knowing that, as he pointed out, death...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Coalfield Communities (28 Oct 2014)

Mark Spencer: at the ballot box than it is about genuinely solving the challenges we face, certainly in some of my communities in Nottinghamshire. I say “some”, because in towns such as Hucknall and Calverton, in the former coalfields in the bottom half of Sherwood, where there is access to employment and good transport links, the communities are bouncing forward. There is very low...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Manufacturing (East Midlands) (12 Feb 2013)

Jon Ashworth: ...a bag of Wotsits crisps made at the Leicester Walkers site. I thank the hon. Member for Sherwood (Mr Spencer) for his success in securing the debate. He spoke well, and I learned something about Calverton of which I was not aware, although I will of course be checking it out later with my father-in-law, who was his geography teacher at school in Calverton only a few years ago. I want to...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Pub Companies (9 Jan 2013)

Mark Spencer: ...great miners’ welfare and working men’s clubs that have shown the way forward when they are given the freedom to operate successfully. It is worth noting that both the bottom and top clubs in Calverton have created a system in which they can operate, and the miners’ welfare club in Blidworth has linked to a sports club. Those are great examples of how successful they can be when...

A614 (3 Nov 2010)

Mark Spencer: ...a small improvement scheme and is delivering that as we speak. However, I expect that the hold-ups will remain. The issue needs solving. Gravelly Hollow is the junction by which the residents of Calverton gain access not only to the A614, but to the M1 motorway. Due to lack of funds some time ago, the county council decided to close that road junction completely. Funding was not available...

Coalfield Communities (Regeneration) (26 Oct 2010)

Mark Spencer: ...his son said, "Dad, can you help us raise some money to rebuild the Scout hut?", he would be in a much better position. I compare the two ends of my constituency, and the villages of Ollerton and Calverton. Calverton is much closer to Nottingham city centre; it has good public links, and young people are able to get from the village to their employment. The hon. Member for Wigan (Lisa...

Orders of the Day: Clause 15 — Registration of greens (29 Jun 2006)

Paddy Tipping: I am following my hon. Friend's speech carefully and I know that people living on Rennals way in Calverton will follow it even more carefully, because they have used that land for 20 years for recreation and sport. They accept, reluctantly, that there is an existing planning permission, going back to 1972. Is my hon. Friend now saying that that planning consent does not automatically overturn...

Orders of the Day — Commons Bill [Lords] (18 Apr 2006)

Paddy Tipping: ..., so I am delighted that the Bill overcomes that hurdle. Village greens are important for a range of recreational and social reasons. I am particularly keen to have a village green at Keenwell in Calverton. Local people have come together and submitted an application to create a new village green in an area that has been used informally for more than 20 years. The site has historical...

Private Sewers (11 Jan 2006)

Paddy Tipping: ...It is a long-standing problem. The repair will be done but Severn Trent will not adopt the sewers and so there will be problems in future until policy decisions have been taken. At Reynolds way in Calverton, residents have had to pay much more. In this case, Gedling borough council issued notices and major work has been done at substantial cost to the individual householders. Some, but not...

Gedling Local Plan (15 Jun 2005)

Paddy Tipping: ..., wealthy village, from which many people commute into Nottingham and Mansfield. There, a site next to the leisure centre has been identified for housing. Finally, I should mention Dark lane in Calverton. As its name suggests, it is an old green lane with historic connotations—a place of real beauty, which is soon to be built over for housing. I cannot get an answer from the borough...

Coal Areas (Housing) (16 Jul 1997)

Paddy Tipping: ...they had to fund the renovation by the sale of some of their housing stock, which has proved impossible as the housing industry has declined. Who wants to buy a derelict house in Bilsthorpe or Calverton, say, for £15,000, £20,000 or £21,000? The associations have not been able to achieve those sales to fund the renovation of the remaining stock. We must move towards renovation and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Coal Industry (9 Feb 1994)

Mr Timothy Eggar: .... Opposition Members do not seem to realise that no fewer than eight pits are in negotiation or are controlled by the private sector. Clipstone, Betws, Trentham, Coventry, Rossington, Markham Main, Calverton and Wearrnouth are all under discussion. Why do not the Opposition welcome the success of the private sector in its negotiations with British Coal? As for my hon. Friend's specific...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (18 Jan 1994)

Paddy Tipping: ...Paper "Prospects for Coal" in March, but now she knows the truth. She knows that six collieries in Nottinghamshire have closed since March—Silverhill, Cotgrave, Clipstone, Bevercotes, Rufford and Calverton. That is 4,769 jobs lost since last March. The miner's wife wants to know what will happen next. People in Nottinghamshire are practical and pragmatic. They can take the bad news, but...

Points of Order (3 Nov 1993)

Peter Hain: ...for the Future" not been placed before the House? It states: Coal can continue to play a significant role well into the twenty-first century". Surely that is a supreme hypocrisy on the day when Calverton colliery is closing and the coal industry has been decimated. Do the Government intend to make a statement on the matter? Is it right that the document should be issued to the press, but...

Opposition Day: Coal Industry (27 Oct 1993)

Paddy Tipping: ...the country want straight answers to straight questions: will they have a job at Christmas, and can they plan for their summer holidays? They want to know about their future. As miners in Calverton said to me only this week, they cannot take being treated like dogs. They can face the future, but they cannot face continued uncertainty. Miners at Bilsthorpe—I am proud to be wearing a...
