Britain in the World (13 Jan 2020)

Imran Nasir Ahmad Khan: ...that we will be wearing shorts, playing conkers or drinking cocoa around the campfire. Since gaining city status in 1888, Wakefield has many claims to fame. The cruise-ship loving singer Jane McDonald and the 1980s band Black Lace hail from Wakefield. Many Members may have danced to one of their memorable singalong songs such as “Agadoo” at a wedding party. [Laughter.] Clearly, I have....

Members Sworn (17 Dec 2019)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...clock on Thursday before the opening of the debate on the Queen’s Speech.

EU Exit Negotiations: Veterans Strategy (15 Nov 2018)

Kevin Foster: ...the overall tone of the debate, starting with the Minister’s speech. I pay tribute to the speeches made by the hon. Members for Llanelli (Nia Griffith) and for Glasgow South (Stewart Malcolm McDonald), who spoke on behalf of their respective parties. That tone has continued right the way through the debate. It is welcome to have debates on veterans’ issues to ensure that veterans have...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: ...this debate on behalf of the Opposition. Indeed, I am speaking in this Chamber for the second time today. Both debates have been on very important issues. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon Central (Sarah Jones) for securing the debate, and for her very moving and emotional speech. I also want to thank the other hon. Members who have spoken in this excellent debate: the right...

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Wera Hobhouse: ...the EU and on voting reform. As a keen supporter of electoral reform, I want to continue his work and I hope we can make some progress during this Parliament. Of course, many Bath citizens remember Don Foster, the MP for Bath from 1992 to 2015, with special fondness. For 23 years he was Bath’s No. 1 supporter, representing the city with infectious energy, and bringing people and...

Petition - English Language and English Literature Gcse-Level Examinations: World Hijab Day (1 Feb 2017)

Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh: ...debate about Islam in the west. Although Hijab Day is designed to counteract such controversies, it encourages non-Muslim women or even Muslim women like me who do not ordinarily wear a hijab to don one and experience what it is like to do so as part of a bid to foster better understanding.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Health and Social Care: Budgets (16 Jan 2017)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: Ba mhaith liom buíochas a thabhairt don Chomhalta as Doire as an cheist sin a chur, ach i gcionn leathuair a chloig nó mar sin beidh an tAire Sláinte anseo. I think the Health Minister will be here in around 40 minutes. I do not know whether the LeasCheann Comhairle will let me stray into matters political, never mind matters health. The broader point is that we are here today because...

Dormant Betting Accounts (5 Jul 2016)

Ronnie Cowan: ...fashion. I believe I heard words of progress from the Minister. My one reservation is that the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s report, which was written by the then Liberal Democrat MP Don Foster, was published in 2010 and we do not seem to have moved any further since then. I hope we are now starting to move in the right direction. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That...

Children of Alcoholics (24 Nov 2015)

Edward Timpson: ...the right hon. Gentleman said and why I, too, am determined to join him in trying to do more and to do right by the children who still have to live in such circumstances. I grew up in a family who fostered many children, of whom a large proportion, including one of my adopted brothers, came from a home in which alcohol misuse had been a regular feature. We cannot underestimate the lifelong...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Culture and Arts Strategy Consultation (23 Nov 2015)

Carál Ní Chuilín: ...utmost to secure additional funding so that some or all of the money taken from arts organisations could be reinstated. I made a strong case for its reinstatement, and I am pleased that Minister Foster took account of that in the reallocation of moneys. I thank her again for listening to my arguments. As I have consistently said, cuts to the block grant by the Tory Government are causing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Shared Education Bill: Second Stage (10 Nov 2015)

Basil McCrea: ...sum of money, taking money from one source to give preference to the other will mean the demise of the financial contribution. There may well be people here who tut-tut. When the great mantra of Don Quixote is brought up, I always know that a nerve has been touched, as it alludes to the fact that someone is mad to be suggesting the point that he or she is making. Well, in looking through...

Backbench Business: Tax Credits (29 Oct 2015)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...the pace of change. The hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) agreed that there is a need to review the measures and that more transitional support is needed. The hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster) supported the motion because his family was rich in love as he grew up, but poor in money. He realised the effect that the proposals may have on aspiration in the long term. The hon....

Business of the House: European Union (Finance) Bill (11 Jun 2015)

Ben Howlett: .... I will therefore start with an uncontroversial statement: both my predecessors as MPs in Bath have been political titans in this place and in the city. I pay tribute to my immediate predecessor, Don Foster, who has been a superb champion for Bath for 23 years. Many in the House have shared fond memories of his time here and of his work in the Department for Communities and Local...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future Employability Services (28 Apr 2015)

Lewis Macdonald: ...action to help workers to continue to have the opportunity to work. Today’s Aberdeen Evening Express reports that nearly 400 further jobs are at risk at Petrofac, Wood Group PSN and Amec Foster Wheeler. Those are only the latest in a long list of company announcements of job losses in the sector in the past few months. Thousands of jobs have already gone as major employers have shed...

Scottish Parliament: Health Inequalities (26 Mar 2015)

Bob Doris: ...committee’s convener, Duncan McNeil, for the tone that he set in opening the debate. I think that the committee’s work has been the best-kept secret in the Parliament over the years. We have done sterling work in getting on with the job at hand, regardless of party politics, and finding solutions and ways forward. I hope that our convener agrees. If we see health inequalities as a...
