Regional Development Agency (13 May 2009)

Claire Ward: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester (Mr. Dhanda) on securing this Adjournment debate. I credit him for his efforts in support of his constituents. He is an assiduous Member, who always fights for more investment in Gloucester. The detail that he has given today shows how much his constituents have benefited—not only from having a Labour Government, but from having a...

Hajj Pilgrims (UK Tour Operators) (25 Mar 2009)

Claire Ward: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook and Small Heath (Mr. Godsiff) on securing the debate and on taking this opportunity to raise awareness in the House about problems within this sector. As he has said, I know about the issue from my constituency work. I know that he has raised concerns about the matter in the past and that he fights hard for his...

Hajj Pilgrims (UK Tour Operators) (25 Mar 2009)

Claire Ward: If a travel agent books a package that includes a scheduled flight, it must be an ATOL member. In that instance, therefore, the consumer—the constituent perhaps in my hon. Friend's case—would be covered by the protections offered by ATOL. As my hon. Friend has said, the Hajj period is slightly flexible and tends to be around the end of the year. Officials from DBERR and the Civil Aviation...

M3: Animal Testing (14 Oct 2008)

Claire Ward: I congratulate the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Mr. Letwin) on securing this debate on an issue whose importance is reflected in our postbags as constituency MPs.

There is a clear distinction between legislation on cosmetics and legislation on other things such as medical devices or household...

M3: Animal Testing (14 Oct 2008)

Claire Ward: I agree absolutely with my hon. Friend. It is important that the industry recognises the Government's and the EU's intentions in ensuring that we reduce the amount of animal testing. It is in everybody's benefit, therefore, that companies share that basic data. That is very important. It is important to note that the legislation focuses on "information" rather than "data". There is...

M3: Animal Testing (14 Oct 2008)

Claire Ward: The hon. Gentleman raises a very important issue about transparency and information data sharing between companies to ensure that we minimise the effect of increasing animal testing. Testing can be minimised by ensuring that data on chemicals is shared between companies and countries—a significant benefit of the European Union—as well as ensuring that test packages for the new REACH...

M3: Animal Testing (14 Oct 2008)

Claire Ward: My hon. Friend raises another important point. I am sure that the Minister who has full-time responsibility for this issue will study the Hansard report of this debate with great interest, and that my hon. Friend's points will be taken on board. My hon. Friend is absolutely right to make it clear that this issue is also about the public demanding changes. There has been a huge change in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: G7 Presidency (10 Mar 2005)

Claire Ward: I was due to speak to the Watford Oxfam and World Development Movement meeting this evening, but owing to the likelihood of business this afternoon, I probably will not get there.

Can he give me an assurance that I can pass on to them at another time that we will be doing all that...

Claire Ward: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that his hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Mr. Rendel) was on national radio earlier today? He said: "I personally believe and my party believes that it is worthwhile to have a marginal increase in the risk of terrorism". He went on to say: "I don't think it is very likely that there will be huge amounts of people killed in terrorism." Will the hon. Gentleman...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Mar 2005)

Claire Ward: May I ask my right hon. Friend whether he can assure the people of Watford and its police service that the number of police community support officers will be increased? Although those whom we currently have in Watford town centre are very welcome, the people and residents are not seeing as much benefit as they would like, and they want the use of CSOs to be extended and the funding of...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (23 Feb 2005)

Claire Ward: My right hon. Friend will recall that I asked him yesterday about the impact of a home detention order on members of the household. May I give him another opportunity to clarify his position on that? Will it be the responsibility of the Home Secretary and of the judge assessing the order to take into consideration the human rights of other members of the household and the impact on them? What...
