[Philip Davies in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Veterans’ Pensions (16 Mar 2015)

Katy Clark: I beg to move, That this House has considered the petition relating to veterans’ pensions. It is a great pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Davies, and to have secured this debate on an issue that affects many of my constituents and, indeed, constituents in every part of the UK. I asked for the debate as a result of a petition that was signed by more than 300,000 people. Organised by the...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals): Backbench Business — Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2014)

Tom Brake: ...-class antecedents. He touched on many other issues: his concerns about Barclays bank; the residential home and its lift service; the probation service and its payments; and the Royal Mail dog awareness campaign. I can confirm that I, too, participated in the campaign. I was able to confirm to Royal Mail that, like most Members of the House, I did indeed have my backside bitten by a dog on...

Health: General Matters (20 Dec 2012)

Tom Brake: ...children to the merits of funding trips for council leaders to spa towns. I will try to respond to the individual points Members have made but, given the time constraints, will focus on those who are in still in the Chamber. The contribution we heard from my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Mr Amess) contained an unparalleled range of issues. Were I to address them all, there...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (Euro Zone Situation) (30 May 2012)

David Stewart: I have great concerns about the so-called PIIGS countries because they are in a very weak economic situation. I will come on to answer the member’s point in a bit more detail. Some people have argued that the euro zone could end up in two camps: a super-integrated core of single currency survivors and an outer ring of satellite states that revert to their former currencies. Greece has...

Pensions Bill [HL] — Second Reading (15 Feb 2011)

Lord Brooke of Sutton Mandeville: ...made a much better speech than I shall. I am batting higher up the order than I should be. I come to this subject as an innocent and shall describe my motivation in a moment, but first I should declare one interest not contained in the Register; namely, that my brother is a retired Lord Justice of Appeal, which will, at least in my view, preclude me from speaking on Part 4 of the Bill. I...

Speaker's Statement: Economic Affairs and Work and Pensions (8 Jun 2010)

Damian Hinds: ...ever, in this House, I can be half as good as he was, I shall be not half bad. I very much hope to emulate Michael Mates's long and close relationship with the people of East Hampshire, and there are many people whom I have the privilege to represent now who have been transported into my constituency, courtesy of the Boundary Commission, having taken no decision of their own to do so. They...

Orders of the Day — Government of Wales Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: Clause 93 — Legislative competence (23 Jan 2006)

Alan Haselhurst: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: New schedule 1—'RESERVED MATTERS— PART 1 GENERAL RESERVATIONS The Constitution 1 The following aspects of the constitution are reserved matters, that is— (a) the Crown, including succession to the Crown and a regency, (b) the Parliament of the United Kingdom, (c) the continued existence of the High Court of Justiciary...

Ways and Means — Budget Statement (9 Apr 2003)

Gordon Brown: It is half a century since a Budget has been presented with Britain engaged in large-scale military conflict. On 10 April 1951, the then Chancellor told the House of Commons that, heavy as the burdens may seem at times, they were small set against the cause, which is great, and the courage of our armed forces, which is even greater. And even as we look forward to the end of the conflict in...

Gulf War Illnesses (15 Jan 2001)

Lord Morris of Manchester: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government what further consideration they are giving to the needs of Gulf War veterans with still undiagnosed illnesses and of the dependants of those who have died. My Lords, in opening this debate, I warmly congratulate my noble friend the Minister on joining the Privy Council and welcome her aboard. Nothing in my parliamentary life has given me me greater joy...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Dec 1999)

Jeremy Corbyn: Before I came to the debate, I attended a pensioners function at the Islington Irish centre in my constituency. I was there briefly. One person was treated, correctly, as a welcome guest—it was Gerry Conlon, one of the Guildford Four. He spent more than half his life in British prisons for an offence that he did not commit, on the basis of evidence that was collected after the first arrest...

Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (19 Feb 1996)

Mr James Molyneaux: ...Lord Nolan to sit in on the debate, and if so, whether he can blow a whistle so that anyone who appears to have an interest in the matters under discussion can be forewarned. In a way, all of us are bound to have financial interests somewhere in the 11 pages of this order. I am distinctly nervous when it comes to the mention of retirement pensions. I am less anxious about the case for...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Social Security and Employment (24 Nov 1988)

Hon. Robert Boscawen: ...ago, despite the quiet, calming words of the shadow Leader of the House—the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras (Mr. Dobson)—some of us have another point of view which we would be prepared to express. I am honoured and grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, for calling me to speak so early in the day. As you know, it is a long time since I have been able to speak in the House owing to...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Industry and Employment (18 Nov 1986)

Mr Ron Leighton: ...trade balance has moved from a surplus of £2·7 billion in 1979 to a deficit now of more than £7 billion. Instead of a leaner, fitter economy, we have been left with an emaciated skeleton. Vast areas of industrial Britain have been laid waste. It is the worst disaster that Britain has suffered in peacetime, and it is continually getting worse. There is no end to this carnage. Every day...

Orders of the Day — Ordnance Factories and Military Services Bill (21 May 1984)

Mr John Golding: The Bill is an abomination. Why are the ROFs being privatised? Not because they are inefficient — Ministers have constantly praised them for their efficiency. Not because they are unprofitable — they have made £270 million since 1974. Not because they have failed in the export market—they have won two Queen's awards. They are being privatised solely because of political dogma, because...

Health and Safety at Work (11 Mar 1983)

Mr Norman Miscampbell: ...in every newspaper in the country. That number is fewer than the carnage which occurs in any week on our roads. People also appear to make a judgment about the quality of risk. Perhaps the clearest example was Ronan Point, a tower block which was found to be unsafe. Following that disaster, the regulations for building tower blocks were completely changed. It has been roughly calculated...

Orders of the Day — British Aerospace Bill (20 Nov 1979)

Mr Robert Atkins: ...not have a great deal to crow about. He had one of the largest Labour majorities in the country, which was cut substantially. His is now a marginal seat. I do not discount the labour leaders. They are part and parcel of any discussion about industry, but I like also to listen to the voters, the people actually working in the factories. Their view is not always quite the same as that...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (2 Nov 1978)

Peter Bottomley: ...Department, but I mention first an unsung and probably little known branch of the DHSS which is concerned with advice on residential institutions. I do not want to go into great detail, but I am aware of the way in which advice is given to local authorities about certain institutions and inspections are carried out. The discretion, the diplomacy and, yet, the rigour with which the DHSS...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces (Pay) (22 May 1978)

Mr Geoffrey Pattie: This debate is not just about pay; it is also about morale. Morale is something which is apparently always excellent. It is rather like the Chancellor in the days of fixed parities who denied that a devaluation was about to happen until it happened. So we have no gradations on the scale of morale. From excellent we move straight to mutiny—or more properly described in the age of the...

Armed Forces (Pay) (9 Dec 1977)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: ...eye of the Chair at this precise moment. At the moment there is a common appreciation among the public about the versatility and the cheerful readiness of the forces to perform tasks which they are basically not trained to do. There is perhaps a greater appreciation of the role of the Forces than there normally is. We are also, as a public, more aware of the widespread discontent which...

Orders of the Day — Essex (Government Expenditure) (18 Nov 1977)

Mr Julian Ridsdale: ...a 10 per cent. pay award without a further increase in rates. It is this which makes one concerned about the Government's attitude towards expenditure in Essex. It appears that the Government are not willing to face the reality of how much Essex, especially North-East Essex, has grown in the past 10 years and of what is needed to maintain standards in the face of a population increase,...
