Scottish Parliament: National Clean Air Day 2017 (14 Jun 2017)

Patrick Harvie: ...the debate. I am not sure whether I should begin by declaring an interest, because I have the dubious privilege of being a resident of one of Glasgow’s air quality management areas, the Dumbarton Road-Byers Road corridor. I happen to live on Dumbarton Road and I walk and cycle on those streets. I know that, if I open my window, I am not confident that the air that comes into my flat is...

Online Abuse: Creative Industries (7 Jul 2016)

Patrick Grady: ...as well that local authorities do the same. This year, the West End Festival in Glasgow was sadly curtailed because of a lack of funding and support, and the famous parade that goes down the Byers Road was unable to take place. However, I was pleased that the Scottish Government agreed that an area of land in my constituency, Kelvin meadow and the Children’s wood, should not be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (24 Mar 2010)

Nick Clegg: ...British people about the tough times ahead. This Budget was a Budget in denial about the scale of change needed-it was about as honest as the CV of the right hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mr. Byers). It is built on growth figures that are unlikely to materialise. It is built on false comfort from a small drop in borrowing that does not affect the structural deficit; we are still...

Amendment of the Law (27 Apr 2009)

Emily Thornberry: ...areas of greatest need such as Islington, where 13,000 families are languishing on the waiting list for social housing. I give hon. Members an example of a particular development. On the Holloway road in my constituency, there is a development above the Tesco's with 60 units, only 10 of which are affordable units. Exactly why the Lib-Dem council thought it was appropriate to allow only 10...

Bill Presented: Heathrow (11 Nov 2008)

Norman Baker: ..., terminals". That appears to be absolutely the case. Other elements in our society have learned to live within their carbon footprint to some extent. Predict and provide has been abandoned for the road network, albeit not entirely, but it seems that the aviation industry, rather than cutting its cloth accordingly and changing its operating procedures to improve its service, simply wants...

Deferred Division: Heathrow (2 Apr 2008)

Norman Baker: The hon. Gentleman said that he would be helpful last time. On the issue of children and education, I refer the Secretary of State to the European Commission's RANCH project on road traffic and aircraft noise exposure, which found a clear link between aircraft noise and delays in reading age. A 5 dB increase in noise level was linked to children being up to two months behind in their reading...

Business of the House (27 Mar 2008)

Theresa May: ...-Boris unit". Transport for London has also told taxi drivers that they cannot issue receipts with "Back Boris" on them, and has threatened to withdraw funding from the Metropolitan police if its road traffic officers continue to criticise the safety record of bendy buses. Is that not a flagrant abuse of power? May we have debate on Transport for London? It has emerged this week that...

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (18 Mar 2008)

Philip Hammond: ...changes announced in the Budget, and even after the tax credit changes, that will leave 5.3 million low-income British households worse off and, as the right hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mr. Byers) pointed out in the debate last week, will also drag another 145,000 people into marginal tax and benefit withdrawal rates in excess of 60 per cent. Stability, I have to tell the Chancellor,...

Scottish Parliament: Post Offices (21 Dec 2006)

Alasdair Morgan: ...its operations and taking money away from the post office, presumably so that the Government has to put more subsidy in at the other end. That is the economics of the madhouse. When Stephen Byers launched the Post Office card account, there was no suggestion that it was time limited and would be around for only 10 years. The House of Commons understood that it would be around for ever, but...

Opposition Day — [1(st) Allotted Day]: Transport Strategy (5 Dec 2006)

Owen Paterson: ...highlighting yet another broken promise. We have heard a catalogue of them throughout the debate. There is no question who is to blame. In June 2001, the right hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mr. Byers) took over as Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions. On 15 January 2002, in an interview with The Guardian, he said—I urge Ministers to listen to this:...

Points of Order: Passenger Transport Authorities (Regulation) (25 Jul 2006)

Nick Brown: ...would have the great advantage of eliminating the funding shortfall for the pensioners concessionary bus travel scheme. My Bill is unashamedly pro-public transport. It favours the citizen and the broader public interest over narrower commercial interests. All the traditional arguments in favour of public transport still stand: the impact of public transport on congestion, public transport...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (28 Mar 2006)

Helen Goodman: ...rise in schools investment since 1997, and the 50 per cent. rise in schools investment next year will make a huge difference. For example, there will be a completely new school in the village of Byers Green, where teachers and pupils are now struggling in a 1915 building. The extra money for science teachers and new science clubs will be welcomed both in the Glaxo plant in Barnard Castle...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (27 Mar 2006)

Mark Hoban: ...of making sure that the tax regime is competitive and addresses the global challenges posed by economies in eastern Europe, China and the far east. The right hon. Member for North Tyneside (Mr. Byers) made a powerful speech about the risks of extending means-testing and the impact on the take-up of benefits. He made a persuasive case for adopting the Turner report as the basis of pension...

Government's 10-year Transport Plan (1 Feb 2006)

John Redwood: ...of State made a sensible change to the Government's approach to transport when he began his difficult job. His predecessor thought that it was possible to shift a large number of people off the road on to the train to solve environmental and capacity problems. The Secretary of State quickly realised that we are short of capacity of all kinds. He realised that the fundamental transport...

Bruche Police Training Centre (9 Nov 2005)

Helen Jones: ...closed a call centre in my constituency, there was immediate engagement with all the partners in the area, and we had a lot of support from my right hon. Friend the Member for North Tyneside (Mr. Byers), who was then Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. I expect a public body to do no less than that. I want to turn to the future of the site. As I said, it is surrounded by housing,...

Finance Bill (19 Jul 2005)

Lord MacGregor of Pulham Market: ...to them because this is a very important point. According to the documents that have emerged in the High Court, David Rowlands, then the department's director-general for railways, in a memo to Mr Byers at the end of September in the relevant year, wrote: "The key issue outstanding here is whether we can be absolutely sure that our preferred model— that is, the model that is now Network...

East Coast Rail Franchise (8 Feb 2005)

Greg Knight: ...on by the hon. Member for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine (Sir Robert Smith). If the Government are serious about wanting people to travel to places in the north by rail, rather than by air or road, journey times must be as short as possible. Before the Hatfield disaster, the fastest service from King's Cross to Edinburgh was, I think, three hours and 50 minutes. Under the new...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2004)

Dennis Skinner: ...a place like Shirebrook, which felt the world had collapsed in the early 1990s when the pit shut, that is manna from heaven. I am pleased that we were able to get the money and set the show on the road. Another scheme that my hon. Friend and I took part in was in making sure that we developed the old Markham Bolsover pit site. There was massive potential for turning that into a business...

Council Housing (30 Jun 2004)

Clive Betts: ...of the things that really bugs people in this debate is the lack of a level playing field—that the Government are prepared to write off hundreds of millions of pounds to encourage people down one road, but will not support them if they choose to stay with the local authority as council tenants. The Government's next strategy has been to say, "Well, if we can't persuade tenants to vote...

Transport (15 Jun 2004)

Dr Brian Mawhinney: ...were not good and change had to be introduced. At that point, let us consider the contribution of the Secretary of State's other predecessor, the right hon. Member for Tyneside, North (Mr. Byers). In a statement to the House, he announced that he intended to put Railtrack into a special vehicle. In response to that, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer and I got to our feet and warned...
