Home Information Packs (16 Jul 2008)

Iain Wright: I congratulate the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Angela Browning) on securing this debate. I know that she takes a close interest in home information packs and energy performance certificates. She has mentioned her contributions to debates in the House on the subject, and I have seen recent written parliamentary questions to my right hon. Friend the Minister for Housing that...

Pre-legislative Scrutiny (16 Jul 2008)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Goodlad, for instituting the debate and for chairing the committee which produces excellent reports. Although we have had a limited number of speakers, this has been a high-quality debate. I was disappointed to hear that the Government's response was deemed negative. I assure noble Lords that we respond positively to pre-legislative scrutiny where it is...

Petitions: Planning and Development (Heathrow) (16 Jul 2008)

John Martin McDonnell: I wish to present a petition on behalf of the supporters of the campaign to save Cherry Lane cemetery. The background to the petition is that the British Airports Authority has submitted its proposals to extend Heathrow airport, and the road proposals linked to the airport. The roads run through Cherry Lane cemetery, which is the only operational cemetery within my constituency, and is where...

Petitions: HMRC Work Force Change (Lincolnshire) (16 Jul 2008)

Mark Simmonds: I wish to present a petition signed by approximately 1,500 people on behalf of the staff and customers of the Revenue and Customs office in Boston, Lincolnshire. The petitioners declare that they are concerned about cuts to public services, particularly the proposed closure of the HMRC office in Boston, which could have detrimental impacts not only on the staff of the office but on the many...

Business of the House: Clause 3 — Applications (16 Jul 2008)

Edward Garnier: As the hon. Lady has been good enough to refer me to what the Attorney-General said in the other place, may I ask her to bear in mind the point made by the noble and learned Lord Lloyd of Berwick? He asked the Attorney-General: "Does the noble and learned Baroness agree that, once the principle is established, the worst solution would be to have common-law rules and statutory rules running...

Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2008 (16 Jul 2008)

Lord Henley: My Lords, I hope that I can be relatively brief. On Monday, my honourable friend David Burrowes debated this at some length with the Minister's colleagues in another place. Most of his questions about consultation were dealt with on that occasion, so I want to add only a couple of points. First, to pick up one of the Minister's last remarks, he talked about the increase in awards for dental...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Fuel Duty (16 Jul 2008)

Angela Eagle: This has been an interesting debate and I am grateful to all hon. Members who contributed to it. In particular, I want to pick out the maiden speech of the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell), which we all enjoyed. It was a privilege to witness his arrival in the House. He has some interesting acts to follow and he alluded to that. He also mentioned his immediate predecessor, but among his...

Crossrail Bill (16 Jul 2008)

Lord Low of Dalston: My Lords, I am extremely grateful to the Minister for his full and careful reply to all the issues raised. I am most grateful to all other noble Lords who have spoken, who all made relevant points. I should say unambiguously, as I hope I did in my earlier remarks, that I am in absolutely no doubt about the great benefits that will accrue to disabled people as a result of the construction of...

Pensions Bill (16 Jul 2008)

Baroness Noakes: I return to my example of a fair value transaction coming into the group, followed by a merger, followed by the failure of that merger. The Minister talked about assets leaving the group, about sales and mitigation. This is a different situation. I am trying to tease out the impact of that type of fair value transaction.

Nursing and Midwifery Council (16 Jul 2008)

Ben Bradshaw: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Livingston (Mr. Devine) on once again raising this important issue and thank him for doing so. It is important to make it clear from the outset that the NMC is an independent professional regulatory body, and one that has been in trouble for some time. The locus for ministerial or any other outside interference in such a body is limited. As my...

Local Housing Allowance (Highlands) (16 Jul 2008)

James Plaskitt: I thank the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Danny Alexander)—on this occasion, I have listed all the places that he represents, because it is appropriate to do so—for raising an important issue, and I congratulate him on the way in which he presented his case. I know how closely involved he is with the wider welfare reform agenda. As he said, he and I have...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Members' Allowances (16 Jul 2008)

Helen Goodman: It is a pleasure to take part in the debate and to follow the hon. Member for North-West Cambridgeshire (Mr. Vara). I am concerned about the old-fashioned view of Members that the motion perpetuates. The role of the Member of Parliament has changed since the 18th century, when it was a part-time exercise, which those who could afford to fund themselves undertook. David Lloyd George...

Advanced search

Find this exact word or phrase

You can also do this from the main search box by putting exact words in quotes: like "cycling" or "hutton report"

By default, we show words related to your search term, like “cycle” and “cycles” in a search for cycling. Putting the word in quotes, like "cycling", will stop this.

Excluding these words

You can also do this from the main search box by putting a minus sign before words you don’t want: like hunting -fox

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.

Date range


You can give a start date, an end date, or both to restrict results to a particular date range. A missing end date implies the current date, and a missing start date implies the oldest date we have in the system. Dates can be entered in any format you wish, e.g. 3rd March 2007 or 17/10/1989


Enter a name here to restrict results to contributions only by that person.


Restrict results to a particular parliament or assembly that we cover (e.g. the Scottish Parliament), or a particular type of data within an institution, such as Commons Written Answers.


If you know the actual Hansard column number of the information you are interested in (perhaps you’re looking up a paper reference), you can restrict results to that; you can also use column:123 in the main search box.
