Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (Programme): Theme Parks: Child Safety (3 Jul 2017)

Keith Vaz: ...Manor park in Staffordshire. On the morning of Tuesday 9 May 2017, Evha woke up excited at the prospect of visiting Drayton Manor park with her school, the Jameah girls academy, which is in Rolleston Street, Leicester. She had been given £10 by her family to spend at the park. Just four days before, she had celebrated her 11th birthday. What Evha’s mother, Mussamth, did not know, when...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (30 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: adopted. Helping more drug users find the healthcare treatment they need will be a challenge on a large scale. This is not a new dilemma. Back in 1924, the Government of the day established the Rolleston committee. Its recommendation to the Government certainly was that penal elements of policy were important, but it also said that addiction should be treated primarily as a disease. I...

Nottingham to Lincoln Railway Line (27 Jan 2014)

Patrick Mercer: ...and Newark, there would be a doubling in frequency and a reduction in journey times. For Carlton, Burton Joyce and Fiskerton, there would be a doubling of frequency, and for Bleasby, Thurgarton and Rolleston an increase in frequency. I have no doubt that the points made by my hon. Friend the Member for Sherwood (Mr Spencer) will also be reflected in that. Subsequent stages would see...

[Jim Sheridan in the Chair] — Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (2 Feb 2011)

Andrew Griffiths: If the hon. Lady would like to come to Rolleston working men's club in my constituency, she will be welcomed with open arms and provided with alcohol in a safe and regulated environment. We all recognise that the pub and the working men's club provide a safe, regulated environment in which people can enjoy a pint or a glass of wine and interact socially. They are the social hub of our...

Tackling Poverty in the UK (10 Jun 2010)

Andrew Griffiths: ...a thumbnail sketch of it. Outside Burton are some beautiful villages such as Tutbury, which is famous for its castle; Marchington, which is famous for its marvellous pub The Dog and Partridge; and Rolleston, which has rightly earned its title as the most friendly village in Staffordshire. My constituency is a beautiful place in which to live and to work, and I am honoured to represent it....

Flood and Coastal Defence Policy (13 Mar 2003)

Janet Dean: ...problems because they do not derive from one source. Other hon. Members have referred to sewage flooding; that means that the sewerage companies are involved. This week, I had a site meeting in Rolleston-on-Dove in my constituency, which representatives from the highways authority, the Environment Agency, the local borough council, the Severn Trent sewerage company and the local parish...

Goods Vehicles (8 Jun 1988)

Mr Ivan Lawrence: schemes from Douglas and the new plastic products from BTR. Therefore, it is no surprise that one of my constituents, Mr. Maurice Goodall, formerly of Barton-under-Needwood and now of Rolleston-on-Dove—two delightful villages in my constituency that I hope my hon. Friend the Minister will visit shortly—has invented an anti-spray device that works.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Prison Statistics (5 Nov 1987)

Hon. Douglas Hurd: The hon. Gentleman is a little out of date. Our problem now is not the shortage of physical space but the shortage of staff. That is why I have handed Rolleston back to the military. The prison service staff, who were entirely responsible for staffing Rolleston, can now be used more profitably in other parts of the prison system. As the hon. Gentleman knows, prisoners are categorised by...

Pharmacists (29 Jun 1978)

Mr Ivan Lawrence: ...8,500 people. Many villages have no pharmacy at all. Some have no pharmacy, no general practitioner and no branch surgeries. I refer to such villages such as Stretton with a population of 4,300 Rolleston with 3,800 and Branston with 3,800. The result is that about 40 per cent. of the population of the Burton division—50,000 out of about 120,000 people—are cut off completely from...

Orders of the Day — School Transport (24 May 1976)

Mr Ivan Lawrence: ...are Tutbury, famous for its castle. Mary Queen of Scots and Tutbury glass, Stretton, which is also famous, both of which send their secondary schoolchildren to the Forest of Needwood School at Rolleston-on-Dove. About the problems of these schoolchildren, parents, local authorities and bus operators have been in endless correspondence. There have been private and public meetings. I...

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Drugs Bill (6 Apr 1967)

Miss Alice Bacon: ...have also been free to administer, supply or prescribe dangerous drugs to addicts. In doing so, they have been expected to comply with certain principles laid down by a Departmental Committee, the Rolleston Committee, which examined the matter in 1926. Those principles presuppose, first of all, that the general practitioner will make every effort to cure the addiction. If those efforts...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Drug Addicts (Prescriptions) (5 Mar 1964)

Mr Christopher Woodhouse: ...dangerous drugs to a patient who is addicted depends solely on the decision of the medical practitioner professionally responsible for the case. This is in accordance with the advice given by the Rolleston Committee on Morphine and Heroin Addiction in 1926, and by the Brain Committee on Drug Addiction in 1961.

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (10 May 1954)

...between the executive councils and the local authorities. If my memory serves me aright, that was recommended many years ago, as far back as 1926, by a Royal Commission, of which Sir Humphry Rolleston was chairman, but was never acted upon. I do not think that this step should be taken until the whole pattern of reorganisation could be seen clearly. If now we link executive councils with...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) Bill (12 Dec 1952)

Mr Robin Turton: ...this scheduling of diseases under the workmen's compensation Acts was guided by those recommendations, which were accepted, and which were endorsed by the Holman Gregory Committee in 1922, and the Rolleston Committee in 1933. That continued till 1946, when the right hon. Member for Llanelly brought in the Industrial Injuries Act. That Act changed the whole method of prescribing diseases,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Freedom of Information (Conference Resolution) (28 Apr 1948)

Sir Waldron Smithers: Would the right hon. Gentleman be so good as to receive a deputation consisting of Lord Craigavon and Captain Rolleston, of the Royal Navy, as representing the Listeners' Association, so that they may explain to the right hon. Gentleman the dangers of the B.B.C. monopoly and the need for a purge within its ranks?

Oral Answers to Questions — Workmen's Compensation. (23 Dec 1937)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Home Secretary whether the evidence given to the Stewart and Rolleston Committees on workmen's compensation, so far as not given in confidence, will be published simultaneously with the reports?

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (19 Nov 1937)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: ...comprehensive Measure. Judge Stewart's committee has been sitting now for about two years, dealing with one aspect which is covered very closely by the Bill. Another committee under Sir Humphrey Rolleston, dealing with rehabilitation, has already issued a most interesting interim report. I do not think the Government can do much until these committees have reported. I wish their evidence...

Orders of the Day — Home Office Administration. (30 Jul 1936)

Mr Geoffrey Lloyd: .... As a matter of fact, there is a recognised procedure which, I think, on the whole, the hon. Member would agree is the best to follow. An advisory committee under the chairmanship of Sir Humphry Rolleston, a distinguished doctor, was appointed to advise on any proposals of this kind and I am sure that that committee would give very fair decisions. I may say that almost all the other...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill. (6 Mar 1936)

Colonel Louis Gluckstein: ...justice of the peace, but he is. In a speech in my Division I referred to this question and suggested a remedy, with the result that I received a letter from the gentleman in question, Sir Lancelot Rolleston, who is one of the most important persons in the County of Nottingham, very greatly respected, and well known to many hon. Members in this House. He says: I was very glad to see the...
