Duncan Baker: Is it not the case that the Chancellor’s intervention to freeze energy bills is already predicted to reduce inflation by 5%, and that for every single percentage point that inflation comes down by, our borrowing costs are reduced by £6 billion? Therefore, by simple economics, in which the Opposition need a lesson, it is entirely feasible that we have the second-lowest amount of net debt to...
Steven Baker: The UK Government is acting to protect UK households from the spiralling costs of energy. The Energy Price Guarantee will apply in England, Wales and Scotland. Energy is a devolved matter, so in the absence of a functioning Northern Ireland Executive to deliver a comparable scheme, the UK Government will need to take action tailored to the particular circumstances prevailing in Northern...
Elly Baker: Does Transport for London collect data on the number of journeys made using shared mobility methods of transport and if so, how has this changed in recent years?
Elly Baker: What analysis, if any, has Transport for London conducted or studied regarding modal shift and shared mobility methods of travel (i.e. what percentage of trips taken via different shared mobility methods would otherwise have been taken by walking, cycling, public transport or private vehicles)?
Elly Baker: What work has been done to assess the viability of extending the N15 route to Queens Hospital, Romford, to make public transport more accessible for those working unsocial shifts?
Steven Baker: Vacant commercial properties are a devolved matter, and related enquiries should be directed to the Northern Ireland Executive Department for Communities. The Northern Ireland Office wishes to promote growing prosperity for everyone in Northern Ireland. To that end, officials and ministers work closely with the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and we work with all...
Steven Baker: The restoration of fully functioning devolved institutions in Northern Ireland remains our top priority. Northern Ireland Office Ministers are in close contact with Cabinet colleagues on this issue and we will also be speaking to the Political Parties in Northern Ireland to encourage them to form a new Executive as soon as possible.
Elly Baker: In March 2012 the previous Mayor published his Olympic and Paralympic Transport Legacy Action Plan. Can you outline how Action 16 “TfL will work with the boroughs, waste authorities, and waste collection companies to consider the timing of waste collections on the Strategic Route Network. This will consider impacts on congestion and smoothing traffic flow, as well as wider implications of...
Elly Baker: In March 2012 the previous Mayor published his Olympic and Paralympic Transport Legacy Action Plan. Can you outline how Action 10 “TfL will work with the boroughs to support walking and cycling amongst London’s adult population. This may include a programme of engagement with a wide range of community groups and individuals to encourage walking and cycling” has been delivered over the...
Elly Baker: In March 2012 the previous Mayor published his Olympic and Paralympic Transport Legacy Action Plan. Can you outline how Action 9 “The Mayor and TfL will promote cycling by encouraging the development of a range of London 2012 cycling merchandise, to produce the maximum benefits to London. The range should include affordable cycling products” has been delivered over the past 10 years?
Elly Baker: In March 2012 the previous Mayor published his Olympic and Paralympic Transport Legacy Action Plan.

This may include cycle training within schools and will build on the successes of Team GB and state of the art facilities in the future VeloPark to inspire future generations to cycle” has been...

Can you outline how Action 1 “After the 2012 Games, TfL will use the rail infrastructure to support the outcomes of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy” has been delivered over the past 10 years?
Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...new issue of stamps, and I think I can say that when he met the Queen, she certainly was not amused—so that one did not get through. I was struck by an article in the Times yesterday by Gerard Baker, a rather tough American writer. He concluded it by saying that we have lost a monarch but the world has lost a Queen, which I thought was a very nice tribute. King Charles has a really hard...
Duncan Baker: On behalf of my constituents in North Norfolk, I rise to pay our respects after the 70-year reign of our sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II. We have been asked not to repeat stories that have been told by other Members, but I think I am on fairly safe ground talking about carrots, coconuts and Her Majesty all in the same speech. Of course, Norfolk has very special and enduring memories of Her...
Baroness Blower: ...comes from Dame Alison Peacock, chief executive of the Chartered College of Teaching, and Dame Mary Beard, who describes GCSEs as past their sell-by date. I might say that even the noble Lord, Lord Baker of Dorking—who I do not think is in his seat—who introduced GCSEs, has called for them to be scrapped. Sarah Fletcher, the high mistress of St Paul’s Girls’ School, whom I have had...
Lord Baker of Dorking: Before the noble Baroness sits down, I thank her for a very interesting, well-informed speech. She identified the pressures placed upon GPs, which are not going to be relieved easily. Would she welcome what happens in a country such as France, where many—
Ian Blackford: ...I have visited businesses in Ayrshire with my hon. Friend the Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Alan Brown). We visited another bakery, Brownings, and met with the industry body. It is clear that bakers in particular are facing real struggles with the rise of energy and other costs. It is critical that the Government give the details of what they are intending in order to support businesses.
Claire Baker: I thank the minister for advance sight of the statement, and I welcome the appointment of David Strang as the chair of the national mission oversight group. More strategies and structures have been announced today, but it is three years since the public health emergency was declared, with at least 2,500 people having died from drug overdoses. Those were preventable deaths, and those people...
