Business of the House: Backbench Business — Dementia (10 Jan 2013)

Guy Opperman: .... In that respect, we must be careful not to become too accountant-focused in the provision of health care services. I made my name as a pro bono lawyer fighting the decision to close services at Savernake hospital. I regret to say that the previous Government were involved in that, but other Governments have done such things in the past. We have to focus on the parts of the health care...

Delegated Legislation: Bowel Cancer Screening (23 Nov 2011)

Guy Opperman: members have had this cancer, so I had the colonoscopy that was medically advised in those circumstances. I would certainly not be an MP were it not for the campaigns I waged on behalf of Savernake hospital in Wiltshire, where I was born; that hospital also saved my mum’s life. I would like to declare an interest as a taxpayer. The NHS’s approach to individual screening is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Private Finance Initiative Payments (22 Nov 2011)

Claire Perry: In addition to struggling hospital trusts, many, many community hospitals throughout the country, such as Savernake hospital near Marlborough, are also labouring under the burden of an enormous PFI contract and having the indignity of vital local services hollowed out under that lot’s leadership on the Labour Benches. Will the Secretary of State please tell me what he will do to help those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2011)

Claire Perry: Under the previous Government, Savernake hospital in my constituency was redeveloped. As a result, taxpayers have got stuck with nearly £1 million a year in private finance initiative unitary charges and local services offered have been cut drastically. Will the Minister undertake to look at all hospitals labouring under uneconomic PFI burdens and meet me to discuss the Savernake hospital...

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: Public Forest Estate (England) (2 Feb 2011)

Claire Perry: My hon. Friend knows Savernake forest in my constituency probably better than I do, and we share a great concern about biodiversity and public access. Does he agree that in specifically making those issues the underpinning of the consultation process, along with other key variables, we are doing a far better job to protect public woodlands than the last Government, who sold off 25,000 acres...

The minor injury units for Devizes and Marlborough at Savernake community hospital closed in September 2007, and my hon. Friend and her constituents were, understandably, disappointed at the decision, and have been frustrated by the difficulties...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Climate Change (Forestry) (10 Dec 2009)

James Gray: North Wiltshire and Wiltshire more widely boast some of the most ancient and natural woodlands anywhere in England, in Bradon forest, Savernake and elsewhere. However, large parts of our oak population are threatened by oak decline syndrome, and a number of similar pathogens threaten our ancient woodlands. What does the Secretary of State intend to do about that?

Health Services (Wiltshire) (26 Apr 2006)

Michael Ancram: ...a decision that has already been taken. The first option, which is set out in the document as the most favourable because it saves the most money, leaves no community hospitals in my constituency. Savernake and Devizes would close. It leaves no minor injuries units in my constituency; both of those would close as well. It gets rid of the maternity unit in Devizes. It offers "consideration...

Clause 16: Interpretation (30 Apr 1986)

Robert Key: ...criminal offence but omits non-residential premises. If trespass were a criminal offence, the concept of deterrence would be introduced. It could be fairly argued that Stonehenge, the white horse, Savernake and all squatting activities of a similar kind in recent years demonstrate how unfortunate it was that in 1977 Parliament, against the Law Commission's recommendations, decided to...

Policing (London) (28 Jun 1985)

Mr Clive Soley: the recent past and had to regain it. The House set up committees to investigate riots, disorders and policing. One of my biggest criticisms of the Home Secretary is that we can have riots in Savernake forest and shootings in the streets of London, such as in the Baigrie case, and yet we do not have a statement in the House nor do we receive effective replies to the questions that we...

Forestry Commission (Estimates Committee's Reports) (14 Jun 1965)

Mr John Parker: ...easy to put a financial value on this kind of work. In south-eastern England it is already the accepted policy of the Commission to try to develop its woodlands for the use of the urban population. Savernake Forest is an interesting example. It was planted by Capability Brown as part of a large country house estate with magnificent avenues which were subsequently neglected. It came into...

Orders of the Day — BRITISH TRANSPORT COMMISSION (No. 2) BILL (By Order) (13 Mar 1956)

Wing Commander Sir Robert Grant-Ferris: ...waters. May I quote a few words from Mr. L. T. C. Rolts' "Inland Waterways of England." Rennie's Kennet and Avon follows a course of great beauty particularly westwards from the summit tunnel at Savernake. From the little thatch-roofed village of Wootton Rivers, which lies almost within the shadow of the great downland camp on Martinsell, it winds level for fifteen miles through the rich...

Orders of the Day — Highways (Provision of Cattle-Grids) Bill (2 May 1950)

Sir Austin Hudson: ...grids are required far more on secondary or on farm roads but there are certain Class I trunk roads where this provision could be used with advantage. I am thinking particularly of the Bath road at Savernake Forest, which I once used a lot but have not travelled along for some time. That used to be gated, and grids there would be a great advantage. There are other places like the New...

Orders of the Day — Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill (16 Dec 1947)

Mr Christopher Hollis: ...ago. These points are not our grievances at all, but the point we do make is this. Inconvenience is a very mild word for many of the things we have had to put up with. We have had explosions in Savernake Forest on two occasions which have caused fatal casualties, and aeroplane bombing exercises have taken place around Larkhill which have damaged property. If we cannot escape these...

Service Land Requirements (17 Jun 1947)

Mr Christopher Hollis: ..., of which there are an intolerable and incomprehensibly large number still lying about in various parts of the country. One of the most popular of all the beauty spots in the South of England is Savernake Forest. During the war an ammunition dump was built up there which now consists almost entirely of captured German ammunition. Why this ammunition was ever brought to England at all I...
