Royal Assent: Childcare Bill [Lords] (25 Nov 2015)

Chloe Smith: ...North, specifically, demand outstrips supply for places for two-year-olds and three to four-year-olds. For example, recent figures suggest that there are about 560 childcare places available in the Catton Grove, Mile Cross and Sewell areas of my constituency, but 1,200 three and four-year-olds. In other words, there is a shortfall of half the number of places needed. As in many...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day] — Pub Companies (21 Jan 2014)

Chloe Smith: ..., which is a good pub at the heart of the community. In fact, that was one of the first pieces of casework I took up as a new Member of Parliament. I could also talk about the Maid’s Head in Old Catton, which is also an Enterprise inn. It hosts an enormous charity fundraiser—a walk around the ring road in Norwich. The only other hon. Member who might have done that is my hon. Friend...

Norfolk, Suffolk and Devon (Local Government) (2 Mar 2010)

Keith Simpson: ..., because there will presumably be two directors of education and two education services. In outlying districts of my constituency and the constituency of Norwich, North, such as Spixworth, Old Catton and Taverham, that will cause major problems for parents trying to get their children into school. What about support for children? We have a big enough problem now with cases of child abuse...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Higher Education (14 Oct 2009)

Chloe Smith: ...and feeling. According to local sources, Sprowston is the largest parish in Norfolk-I look forward to receiving letters claiming otherwise, which I shall happily forward to the parish council. Old Catton can claim further cultural merit. In Catton hall, it has the location of the first commission for landscaping by Humphrey Repton. Equally importantly, Old Catton's history exemplifies the...

Rape Trials (24 Apr 2002)

Vera Baird: ...Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 to prevent questioning about a woman's sexual history if the object is to show that she consented. That exclusion is very important. The Canadian researcher Catton has shown that where jurors hear evidence of previous sexual history, their view of the guilt of the accused diminishes in proportion to the amount of material heard. That is so even if the...

Estimates Day: New Deal (10 Dec 1998)

Judy Mallaber: ...are interesting examples of what can be done, and we have perhaps not yet focused sufficiently on them. In my area, forestry work—woodland management—is being done by six or seven trainees at Catton hall, in the South Derbyshire constituency. At the Midland railway centre in my constituency, which is a haven for train buffs, people are not only working on the railways, but doing animal...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance (Supplementary Credit Approvals) Bill (17 Jun 1997)

Ian Gibson: the voters for their support. Norwich, North comprises the northern reaches of the fine city of Norwich and parts of Broadland—Sprowston, Taverham, Thorpe Marriott, Drayton, Hallesdon, Old Catton and Thorpe St. Andrew. People there face similar problems to those in other parts of the country—problems of access for the disabled, low pensions and housing problems. They have spoken for...

Orders of the Day — Dogs (Fouling of Land) Bill: Designation of Such Land (22 Mar 1996)

Mr Patrick Thompson: nature. It is important to realise that parish councils can cover all sorts of areas. They are often, certainly in my constituency, proud of their village status and history. I refer to Old Catton, Sprowston, Hellesdon and Thorpe St. Andrew. Those parish councils would be keen to go along with the amendment, which would ensure that they were consulted fully as far as possible. I hope...

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Manufacturing Industry and Unemployment (9 Mar 1993)

Mrs Alice Mahon: I thank the right hon. Gentleman. He will remember Mr. Catton, from Eliot Machine Tools in Halifax, who wrote asking whether he could intervene when Customs and Excise—quite wrongly—fined the firm. It is struggling in the present climate. That happened just after the right hon. Gentleman made his speech about intervening before breakfast, dinner, tea and so forth. Will he now tell us why...

Community Charges (21 May 1991)

Mr Patrick Thompson: ..., or on his colleagues. It is worse than that. Norwich city council is showing an ambition to take in the fringe areas of Norwich and bring them under Labour control. My constituents in Old Catton, Sprowston, Hellesdon and Thorpe St. Andrew would resist that ambition, for the reasons that have been made clear this evening. I shall support them in resisting that ambition of the Labour...

Orders of the Day — Airports Bill (27 Jan 1986)

Mr Patrick Thompson: ...that the Government are bringing it forward. Norwich airport, is, perhaps more than many others, in the middle of a residential area in my constituency. In particular, the residents of Old Catton and Hellesdon are deeply interested in what will happen to the airport in future. Therefore, I intervened during the speech of the hon. Member for Leeds, West (Mr. Meadowcroft), when he talked...

Youth Training (8 Jul 1983)

Mr Patrick Thompson: ...St. Andrew area is derived from the old constituency of Great Yarmouth, whose distinguished Member, Sir Anthony Fell, retired at the Dissolution. The suburban areas of Sprowston, Hellesdon and Old Catton were formerly in the care of my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Howell), a constituency with which I have close association. I shall continue to offer the dedicated service...

Parliamentary Constituencies (England) (2 Mar 1983)

Mr David Ennals: ...were glad to see that Norwich would continue to have two Members of Parliament. I welcome warmly the addition to Norwich, North of those who come from Hellesdon, Sprowston, Thorpe St. Andrew and Catton. They are, in a sense, all suburbs of the city. As I said when I criticised the original proposal, the people come into the city to work, travel, park their cars, go to cinemas and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electricity Cable, Drakelow-Smethwick (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Julian Snow: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what information was laid before his inspector as to the additional sum involved in routing the new Drakelow-Smethwick overhead cable in such a way as to avoid Catton Hall, Staffordshire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Low Flying, Norwich (23 Jul 1952)

Sir Frank Medlicott: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that recent instances of low flying and the taking off and landing of aircraft very near to built-up areas in the Hellesdon, Catton and other districts close to Norwich, have caused considerable disturbance and anxiety to residents in those neighbourhoods, especially to the sick and to children; and if he will have an immediate...
