Hedgehog Conservation (10 Nov 2015)

Julian Knight: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Does he agree that the advent of specific hedgehog conservation areas, such as the one in Elmdon in my Solihull constituency, can play a major part in arresting the alarming decline in the numbers of the great British hedgehog?

Points of Order: Land Use (Garden Protection) (18 Mar 2008)

Caroline Spelman: serve a handful of properties are buckling under the unsustainable number of flats being built in back gardens. In my constituency, there is an application to demolish two family homes on Elmdon lane in Marston Green and to replace them with 71 new dwellings. Just think about the impact of that development. I am talking about a narrow, tree-lined avenue with a hump-backed bridge, where...

Home Affairs and Communities (23 May 2005)

Lorely Burt: live, but I can tell the House that there is a lot more to Solihull than being posh. Within the constituency, there are the strong communities of Shirley, to the west, and Olton, Lyndon and Elmdon to the north. At its heart is Silhill—Solihull's people as a whole are sometimes referred to as Silhillians—and St. Alphege, which was named after a local nobleman who refused to allow a...

Airport Services (Midlands) (1 Jul 2003)

Patrick Cormack: ...preferable, neither site is suitable for a major international airport. When it achieved 1 million passengers, the process would continue inexorably. There was once a lovely little village called Elmdon, but there is now a great international airport there. Let it stay there and serve people as it does—

Chancellor of the Exchequer (Statement): Truro and St. Austell (26 Oct 1987)

Matthew Taylor: ...say the size of an entire county. This travel-to-work area has assisted area status, but if one breaks down the unemployment figures there one finds areas with 8·5 per cent. unemployment in Elmdon or 5·0 per cent. in Knowle. But there are not holes in Birmingham's assisted area status map. Just as I would not be able to see the logic in leaving out parts of Birmingham, I cannot see the...

Orders of the Day — Airports Bill: Airports to Which Section 12 Applies (9 Apr 1986)

Mr Stephen Ross: ...visited Manchester and Birmingham often, as indeed other airports, I have to admit that they are extremely well run. Anyone who has been to Birmingham recently will say that the management of Elmdon airport is of the highest calibre. These organisations are being forced to set up plcs. It is an expensive operation. I have seen what I think was merchant bankers' advice to Manchester. There...

Orders of the Day — Birmingham Airport (18 Jun 1980)

Mr Iain Mills: ...that so burningly strong is the feeling among local residents that a number of parties have come by car and coach and are at present in the Strangers Gallery. Thousands of residents living near Elmdon airport are burning with resentment and are bitterly unhappy about the decision to allow the expansion of the airport to go ahead. Both before and during the public inquiry concerning the...

Silvermere School, Sheldon (19 Jun 1978)

Miss Margaret Jackson: ..., their children should be allowed to attend it. However, the Birmingham authority has demonstrated clearly to the Secretary of State that the existing comprehensive schools maintained by it in the Elmdon consortium—Cockshut Hill and Sheldon Heath—could easily accommodate all anticipated pupils over the next few years. The two schools can together receive around 570 new pupils each...


Mr Julius Silverman: ...and nurses. Surely that is an item which hon. Members on both sides of the House would support. Part V of the Bill deals with aircraft noise and would provide for residents near, for example, Elmdon Airport the same sort of facilities as, I understand, residents near Heathrow Airport enjoy—the provision of sound insulation. There is great demand for it in the area. Once again, this is...

Orders of the Day — Noise (20 Mar 1974)

Mr Clinton Davis: ...for his remarks about my shedding a certain amount of maidenly virtue. My hon. Friend the Member for Yardley dealt primarily with the difficulties of his constituency in its close proximity to Elmdon airport, an airport with which I am somewhat familiar from having spent a large part of my less mature life travelling through it in my courting days. In those days Elmdon did not represent...

Orders of the Day — Maplin Development Bill (8 Feb 1973)

Mr Geoffrey Rippon: ...claim that the effect would delay the need by more than one or two years to the mid-1980s. Even that somewhat modest effect rested on somewhat bold assumptions about airports in South Hampshire, Elmdon, Castle Donington, Rhoose and Bristol. The commission had some reservations about how much more noise would be welcomed, but it did not challenge the premise that airports outside the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Coventry Road, Birmingham (16 Jun 1965)

Mr Ioan Evans: asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to reduce accidents and the possibility of accidents on the Coventry Road, Birmingham, between Church Road and Elmdon Airport.

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Immigrants Bill: First Schedule. — (Supplementary Provisions as to Control of Immigration.) (13 Feb 1962)

Mr Denis Howell: ...that no information about it has been sent to medical officers in the various cities. I tried to question the Minister of Health the other day in the House about an aeroplane which was diverted to Elmdon from Manchester carrying passengers from a part of Europe seriously affected by the recent smallpox epidemic. There were no preparations at Elmdon Airport for the reception of those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Smallpox (12 Feb 1962)

Mr Denis Howell: ...300 cases a week in Karachi, with 30 deaths a week, but that they received no guidance at all from the Ministry? As late as only a fortnight ago, when an aeroplane was diverted unexpectedly to Elmdon, the medical officer of health had no guidance at all as to how he should deal with the matter, and in Birmingham he took the law into his own hands, particularly in respect of a Chinese...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Aviation: Birmingham Airport (21 Nov 1960)

Mr Gordon Matthews: ...housing estates are strongly opposed to what they believe to be an extension of Birmingham Airport near to the built-up area and that the main runway is already dangerously near to the houses in Elmdon Lane? Is he also aware that plans for the extension of the airport may be obsolete in view of the development of vertical take-off aircraft?

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Sir John Hobson: ...air. All these have led in their individual ways to the possibilities of expanding exports and prosperity for this country. In view of that list, I ask the Minister to consider the development of Elmdon Airport, near Birmingham, as a freight airport. We know that London Airport is likely to deal with 13 million passengers in the next few years, and that this will mean colossal pressure on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Fog Delays (9 Feb 1955)

...months August, 1954 to January, 1955, when:— (a) Visual range less than 440 yards but not less than 150 (b) Visual range less than 150 yards Days Hours per day Days Hours per day Birmingham/Elmdon … 4 5, 4, 2, 5. 3 4½, 4, 2.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: The Peak District (Limestone Quarries) (1 Dec 1953)

Mr Ernest Marples: ...must realise and make the distinction between new industrial development in the national parks and the continuation of the old development there. I would call his attention to the fact that in Elmdon Hill and Sparrowpit the main factors which my right hon. Friend took into consideration was that the local authority supported it and so did the men's union, for the sake of continuing full...

Orders of the Day — Patrick Aviation Company (9 Dec 1949)

Captain Albert Blackburn: ...—which, if I may say so, is excellent in its reporting—I think I actually said "accuracy record." What I meant was that this company has been 99.5 per cent. accurate in its timings between Elmdon Airport and Jersey. I think the Minister will be quite ready to admit that this company, which is a very small company employing only 14 ex-Service men on a scheduled service, has been...
