Furness Line (28 Oct 2014)

Tim Farron: ...seen the report, but as she has demonstrated, I made a point of forwarding an additional copy to her ahead of this debate. The Minister will see that the report is dedicated to the memory of Peter Robinson, whose sudden death on 6 August devastated all of us who knew him. Peter was chair of the Furness Line Community Rail Partnership and the source of all knowledge and wisdom on Furness...

Aerospace Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (2 Sep 2014)

Jim Shannon: It is always a pleasure, Mr Hollobone, to serve under your chairmanship. It is equally a pleasure to speak in this debate, and I thank the hon. Member for Mid Worcestershire (Sir Peter Luff) for securing it. He has outlined the case brilliantly, although he did not mention Northern Ireland, so I will do that and correct the balance. That is important, because we have an industrious and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fish Stocks (12 Jun 2014)

Peter Aldous: ...for centuries. Can the Minister confirm that the Government will ensure that the European Commissioner’s proposed blanket ban on drift netting, which will destroy what is left of the Lowestoft fleet, is not introduced?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Giro d’Italia 2014 (29 Apr 2014)

Sammy Douglas: ...steps to maximise the potential to be gained through such a prestigious event. As chairman of the all-party group on cycling, I propose the motion in my name and that of my North Down colleague Peter Weir.  I note that the Alliance Party amendment is within the spirit of the motion, so we are happy to support it. Next week, the Stormont estate will be buzzing when up to 30,000 people will...

Ways and Means: Financial Statement (19 Mar 2014)

George Osborne: ...frozen, my hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon) has turned his energy and talent into a vigorous campaign to cut bingo duty, ably assisted by my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous). They want the rate cut to 15%. I can go further. Bingo duty will be halved to 10% to protect jobs and to protect communities. Let me turn now to tobacco and alcohol duties. Tobacco...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Rolling Stock (North of England) (12 Mar 2014)

Lilian Greenwood: .... As a direct result of its 10-month franchise extension, TransPennine Express has found itself unable to negotiate new leases for its rolling stock. Its Class 170 trains, which make up 13% of its fleet, will be transferred to Oxfordshire, and we learn from the industry press that Class 158 trains may be taken from the Northern franchise to make up the shortfall. As the Rail North group...

TfL (Funding and Station Staffing) — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (15 Jan 2014)

Stephen Hammond: I understand the fixation on the Mayor, because he is the leader of London. However, Mr Brown, who runs London Underground, meets the unions, and I understand that Sir Peter Hendy has done the same. I was asked several questions, and I will try to answer some of them in the short time that I have. The hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington asked me about the response to a parliamentary question...

Fishing Industry (12 Dec 2013)

George Eustice: ...and we hope there will be an outcome. With a 70% increase in the TAC, it is important that this is the best opportunity we will have to get a solution. My hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) mentioned the issue of the under-10 metre fleet. I can confirm that this is an important domestic priority for the Government. I have met members of the under-10 metre fleet, as well as...

Defence Reform Bill — Second Reading (10 Dec 2013)

Lord Craig of Radley: ...industrial suppliers, the then Defence Secretary, Michael Heseltine, now the noble Lord, Lord Heseltine, decreed that there must be no more fraternisation between the two sides. He also invited Peter Levene, now the noble Lord, Lord Levene, from private industry to fill a new appointment of Chief of Defence Procurement in 1985, as we know. Improvements came: cost-plus was out, competition...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fish Discards (21 Nov 2013)

Peter Aldous: ...’s fish stocks. Will the Minister confirm that the Government will introduce a range of measures alongside the discard ban, and that full regard will be given to the interests of the inshore fleet, such as those who fish out of Lowestoft in my constituency?

Wellingborough Prison Site (18 Nov 2013)

Peter Bone: ...located in the east midlands, where there is no shortage of prison places, and miles from London, where there is a huge lack of prison capacity. When that was suggested to me, I am sure I saw a fleet of flying pigs doing somersaults and belly laughing. Wellingborough prison has for a long time been an overflow prison for London. It is located 50 minutes from central London by train and has...

Fishing Quotas (16 Jul 2013)

Richard Benyon: I start by paying great tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous). His constituency might have a much diminished fleet, but he is a worthy champion of it and has stood up for it on many occasions. Having visited Lowestoft’s fishing industry with him, I have seen at first hand his passion to see it return to economic viability—to flourish, as he puts it—and to...

Defence Reform Bill (16 Jul 2013)

Penny Mordaunt: ...expressed in the Chamber this afternoon about an off-the-shelf approach, but people could be very reassured by reading the White Paper produced by my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Worcestershire (Peter Luff), who is no longer in his place. [Hon. Members: “He is over there.”] I am glad that he is here for the pat on the back that I am giving him. That excellent White Paper captured...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Jul 2013)

Peter Lloyd: At the moment, with the proposals that stand with HS2 Ltd, there will be two types of rolling stock: one is the captive fleet for operation purely on new high-speed lines, and the other is a new fleet of classic-compatible trains that operate with the existing UK gauge. For the period in which they operate, we do not necessarily see a requirement for new stations, because they...

Backbench Business — Nato (4 Jul 2013)

James Arbuthnot: ...French, the Spanish and the British working as closely together now as NATO allows us to do. Interestingly, at the battle of Trafalgar there were a lot of French and Spanish sailors in the British fleet, just as there were quite a number of British sailors in the French and Spanish fleets. That was not a matter of treachery—more a matter of expediency. In those days, when a ship was...

Nato: Common Fisheries Policy (17 Jun 2013)

Peter Aldous: I congratulate the Minister on his efforts over the past three years in securing a fair deal for the British fleet. My concern is that these reforms come very much at the 59th minute of the 23rd hour for the Lowestoft fleet, which is very much a pale shadow of its former self. What Suffolk fishermen now need—urgently—is a fair share of quota for the inshore fleet. Will he outline the work...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (18 Apr 2013)

Peter Lilley: displacement activity on a massive scale, and it involves a massive degree of hypocrisy, given the huge emissions incurred by these eco-warriors as they swan across the globe in jets and hire fleets of limousines, so emitting more CO2 than a small African country. The aim of displacement activity is of course to avoid facing up to reality, so I will just point out a few facts that have...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Scottish Referendum (Trident) (7 Mar 2013)

Nick Harvey: ...with a nuclear facility. If another site were chosen, the cost would not be simply the massive cost of making a nuclear installation. My colleague the hon. Member for Mid Worcestershire (Peter Luff) also gave evidence to the Committee, pointing out that making a site meet the standards for nuclear safety and hardening it in defence terms would multiply costs far above the requirements of...
