Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Aviation Security Incident ( 1 Nov 2010)

Andrew Bridgen: I would like to praise the security services and the staff of East Midlands airport, which lies in my constituency. By intercepting that package, they may well have saved lives.

However, I would like to ask the Home Secretary for an assurance that additional screening will be introduced only if it is clearly shown to...

Business of the House ( 4 Nov 2010)

Andrew Bridgen: When can we expect the much awaited localism Bill to begin its passage through Parliament? I am particularly keen to see our planning system reforms introduced quickly. In my constituency and, I believe, those of many other hon. Members, developers are quite keen to exploit what they perceive as the grey area of planning before the Bill is introduced. When will we have settlement on the matter?

Points of Order ( 4 Nov 2010)

Strategic Defence and Security Review ( 4 Nov 2010)

Consumer Credit Regulation ( 9 Nov 2010)

Andrew Bridgen: Some 10 years ago, I raised the crucial point of the capping of interest rates on loans to vulnerable households with the Office of Fair Trading, and my arguments were rebuked. The OFT maintained that, given the risk profile of the individuals involved, if usurious rates could not be charged, no credit would be available to those communities, and that some credit, even at usurious rates, was...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] ( 9 Nov 2010)

Employment Retention: Clause 1 — polling days for parliamentary general elections (16 Nov 2010)

Andrew Bridgen: This is a most intriguing debate and my hon. Friend speaks with great passion and impartiality about these important matters. Surely this Parliament can opt for a five-year Parliament but it cannot bind future Parliaments. Should those Parliaments wish to change the arrangement, they will be able to opt for a four-year or a three-year Parliament, or whatever they should wish for at the time.

Commercial Property (17 Nov 2010)

Andrew Bridgen: I declare an interest in line with the declaration of Members' interests. Business rates are undoubtedly a tax. When a building is empty, there is no rent. The crux of the matter is that this is a tax on an asset that has no income. As my hon. Friend has pointed out, that is distorting the property market and leading people to make strange decisions. The cheaper properties at the bottom end...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Finance Ministers' Meeting (Ireland) (17 Nov 2010)

Andrew Bridgen: Does the Minister agree that the test of any currency is in the tough times, not just the good ones? That was explained to all the countries that joined the euro, many of which, in my view, did so with their eyes wide shut. Is it not abhorrent that this liability, and the failure of the euro, should become a liability to the UK taxpayer at this time?
