John Bercow: Given that it is only two days since the Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, the hon. Member for Rossendale and Darwen (Janet Anderson), said explicitly in Westminster Hall that the Government were committed to a not-for-profit lottery—only to be comprehensively contradicted within 48 hours by her boss and by the Leader of the House—is it not essential, under the terms...

Points of Order (13 Apr 2000)

John Bercow: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. The hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) raised his concern about the conduct of Prime Minister's questions, but you will have observed that several hon. Members, including me, were exercising their leg muscles to no productive effect during questions to the Solicitor-General and were disappointed that we got through only three questions in the 15...

Energy Policy (17 Apr 2000)

John Bercow: Given that the Secretary of State has supposedly been pressing for the liberalisation of the European electricity market, can we take it as evidence of his poor power of persuasion that the French have now committed themselves to a liberalisation of only 26 per cent. and that, thus far, Belgium, Ireland and Greece have committed themselves to precisely nothing?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (17 Apr 2000)

John Bercow: In the light of what the Chief Secretary has just said about the working families tax credit, will he tell me why Nicole Wanford, a low-earning, single parent constituent in Buckingham who has a salary of little more than £10,000 a year after tax, should pay an effective tax rate of 78 per cent. on a modest £600 bonus that her employer paid her? Does the right hon. Gentleman understand...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Electronic Communications Bill (18 Apr 2000)

Orders of the Day — Postal Services Bill: Application of Customs and Excise Enactments to Certain Postal Packets (18 Apr 2000)

John Bercow: I look forward with enthusiasm to hearing the arguments for new clause 6 for the first time, as I did not have the inestimable privilege of being a member of the Standing Committee considering the Bill. I therefore did not hear my hon. Friend's eloquent advocacy in the first instance.

Orders of the Day — Postal Services Bill: Exceptions from Section 6 (18 Apr 2000)

John Bercow: Does my hon. Friend agree that his salutary amendment puts the Minister for Competitiveness under the spotlight and to the test? We shall listen with interest to the Minister's reply. The Secretary of State has made consistent pro-competition noises and has made considerable progress in his political career not by submitting to, but by taking on, the trade unions. I fear, however, that the...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2000)

John Bercow: I, too, wish the right hon. Lady and her husband a happy Easter, although I feel sure that they will both sorely miss the company of right hon. and hon. Members. When will we have the delayed but important annual debate on small businesses—a matter of great concern to them, as they constitute 99.6 per cent. of all British enterprises, employ approximately half of the private sector work...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Rate of Duty on Beer (2 May 2000)

John Bercow: Does my right hon. Friend agree that Ministers are ignoring not only the warnings that he and others gave before the election, but their own statements?
