Television Licences (Disclosure of Information) Bill (15 Jun 2000)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...information. I look forward to more detailed consideration of the Government's Bill at Committee stage. Turning to my own Private Member's Bill, which addresses the issue of television licence fees and concessions, I am very much aware that existing licence fee concessions are, by general consent, both unsatisfactory and arbitrary.

Orders of the Day — Television Licences (Disclosure of Information) Bill (10 Apr 2000)

Janet Anderson: ...for St. Helens, South said, the Government are making good a revenue loss. I clarify the position.

Member for East Surrey asked why the over-75s must apply to opt in. As I say, that is because it preserves...

Television Licence Fees (28 Mar 2000)

Janet Anderson: ...a debate, I am sorry that the hon. Gentleman could not persuade more of his colleagues to be present for what he regards as an important discussion. Nobody enjoys paying the television licence fee. Any increase in that fee, especially above the rate of inflation, is therefore an emotive issue. I concede that that is the subject of our discussion. Unlike the hon. Member for Ryedale, I...

Student Loan Scheme (15 Dec 1999)

Baroness Blackstone: ...UK through their rather diverse and sometimes interesting experiences. However, perhaps I can explain to the noble Baroness why I felt that she may have been a little confused.

That would apply, for example, to a British student in Italy....

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Television Licence Concessions (26 Jul 1999)

Janet Anderson: its obligations to its viewers and its listeners, and to operate successfully in a competitive marketplace. The Government have, time and again, made it plain that we believe that the licence fee is sustainable at least until the run-up to the renewal of the BBC's charter in 2006. Though an imperfect funding mechanism, it is the best means of providing the BBC with sufficient...

Petition: Tourism (New Millennium) (18 Jun 1999)

Janet Anderson: .... I hope the deal that the New Millennium Experience Company has entered into with National Express—whereby people around the country will be charged a flat rate of £29.95, which includes entry fee, to travel by the coach to the millennium dome—will resolve some of the potential transport problems mentioned by the hon.

Janet Anderson: ...corporation in 1927. The Government fully support that principle, but the BBC's independence brings with it obligations, including the need to be, and to be seen to be, accountable to licence fee payers, as stakeholders and customers; to my right hon.

Prayers: Concessionary Television Licences (29 Jul 1998)

Janet Anderson: ...the Opposition Benches have been empty. I can only conclude that Opposition Members do not accord this issue the importance that Labour Members do. Although we believe that the television licence fee, at 27p a day for colour and 9p for black and white, represents good value for money, we appreciate that it is a significant expense for people on a low income. The difficulty is that, for a...

Orders of the Day — Civil Procedure Bill [Lords] (30 Jan 1997)

Gary Streeter: ...) that we will be the Government who introduce these reforms over the next few years. That is why we are taking great care to get them right and to resource them properly. On the increase in fees, which was raised by several Opposition Members, I wish to make four concise points First, people on legal aid will continue to have their court fees paid for by the Legal Aid Board. Secondly,...

Orders of the Day — Crime (Sentences) Bill (4 Nov 1996)

David Hanson: ...which the Committee will need to discuss. My main contention remains the same; I am concerned about the safety of victims of that appalling crime. My hon. Friend the Member for Swansea, East (Mr. Anderson) mentioned clause 3, which deals with burglary. Burglary is a horrible crime.

Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 1994)

Nick Ainger: My contribution will be brief because I know that the hon. Member for Swansea, East (Mr. Anderson) wants to speak before the Front-Bench speakers wind up.
