Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [ Lords] (1 Jun 2009)

Edward Garnier: ...'s activities in that area of public policy. That absurdity is highlighted and reinforced by the title of the Bill. Others have mentioned it, but it is worth repeating.

Edward Garnier: ...Reading prison— [Interruption.] I am in danger of taking myself too seriously. However, it is important that constituency Members visit prisons in their own constituencies; otherwise, the issue becomes a closed book and we invent public policies on criminal justice that are wholly inept and incapable of dealing with the problems that we face. I have two prisons in my constituency. I want...

Topical Debate: Eco-towns (19 Jun 2008)

Edward Garnier: ...that he has just set out to the site in my constituency—the Co-operative Wholesale Society calls it Penbury, but everyone else calls it Stoughton—the Government would simply not plonk a town of 40,000 people down in the middle of rural Harborough.

[Mr. Eric Martlew in the Chair] — Eco-towns (3 Jun 2008)

Edward Garnier: ...probably put together in the previous 24 hours—the wonders of computer printing now enable Departments to do such things. The document's intellectual content—particularly as it relates to the eco-site in my constituency, which the developers call Pennbury—demonstrates to all of us in my constituency that this is a pretty shoddy process. The process did not, however, begin on 3...

Business of the House (22 May 2008)

Edward Garnier: ...for Slough (Fiona Mactaggart) for a debate on the Corston report as soon as possible? May I also draw to the attention of the Leader of the House the parlous state of the consultation process on eco-towns that is going on—or rather, not going on—at the moment?

Edward Garnier: ..., Mr. Speaker. Just now, my hon. Friend the Member for Vale of York (Miss McIntosh) and I both raised with the Leader of the House the absence of a statement from the Minister for Housing about eco-towns. There may be all sorts of reasons why a Minister does not come to the House to make a statement, and I appreciate that it is up to the Government to decide which Ministers come to give...

Business of the House (3 Apr 2008)

Edward Garnier: My right hon. Friend the shadow Leader of the House asked the Leader of the House for a debate on eco-towns, following this morning's announcement. Surely it would have been even more appropriate for the Minister for Housing to have come to the House today to make a statement. This morning at 5 minutes to 9, I was invited to take part in a conference telephone call along with a large number...

Eco-Town (Harborough) (29 Jan 2008)
