Housing: Long-Term Plan (9 Feb 2016)

Richard Bacon: Does my hon. Friend—by the way, I was born in his constituency, in Browns Coppice Avenue—think that it is instructive that we have heard a number of contributions from Conservative Members who were brought up in council houses? Those who strongly oppose the right to buy, although some of them are no longer in the Chamber, come from a wealthy background, and have been to top public...

Scottish Parliament: Contribution of Veterans (30 Apr 2015)

Rob Gibson: ....” In my constituency in the north of Scotland, a gentleman called Mike Ellis provides courses on which people learn outdoor skills. He runs a one-man operation called Helmsdale Charcoal and Coppice, which offers a woodsman course to level 3. That requires five days’ practical training, so it requires residential work, which makes for another disadvantage in terms of providing that...

Anne McIntosh: ...resilience. However, it would help to allow the conveyance of water, to slow the flow with land management schemes upstream—dredging, desilting and other means—and to stop fast-growing willow coppice from blocking watercourses in order to allow the water to flow away in Somerset, Yorkshire and other areas across the country, to prevent flooding. My Committee and I absolutely accept...

Energy Bill: Report (1st Day) (Continued) (28 Oct 2013)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: good. However, I advocate a bit of caution. I have recently come across a company which is trying to build four medium-sized biomass-powered electricity generating stations using brash, tops, coppice, sawmill offcuts and other non-value timber. They are putting them at different ends of the United Kingdom so they have good local sources for the timber. Each power station will be...

I can think of a fair few—Amber Ales, Leadmill, Bottle Brook, Coppice Side and Marlpool. I have to say that I think I have drunk quite a lot of all their beer.
