Small Firms (13 Jul 2001)

John Barrett: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for this opportunity to make my maiden speech and to participate in this debate.

International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

John Barrett: Although our thoughts are with the victims and the families and loved ones of the 7,000 who died in New York and Washington, we should give some thought to the victims of terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan, refugees on the move and in camps, starving, eating grass or nothing. It is not only in the west that terrorism is ruining lives. We heard earlier who is responsible and that the...

Airport and Aircraft Safety (23 Oct 2001)

John Barrett: There is an airport in the heart of my constituency, from which I commute every week. Several passengers have raised with me their concerns, which were mentioned earlier. In Scotland, an important issue is concern about the delay to the new air traffic control centre, which was recently confirmed by the Government, but which would give Ministers the opportunity to consider improvements to the...

John Barrett: What steps the Government are taking to improve the competitiveness of British business.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Competitiveness (1 Nov 2001)

John Barrett: I thank the Minister for that reply. Does he not agree that there have been a number of redundancies in our constituencies as a direct result of the economic impact of the terrorist attack on 11 September? For example, Grampian Foods in my constituency has laid off employees in the airline food industry. The Governments of other countries, such as the United States, have taken positive steps...

John Barrett: What assessment the Government have made of recommendation 70 of the report of the gambling review body on not-for-profit clubs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling Review (5 Nov 2001)

John Barrett: Does the Minister agree that the way to tackle the concerns about children having access to gaming machines is not in the way proposed, because a number of clubs have membership that is exclusively for the over-18s or can make other provisions?

School Transport (5 Dec 2001)

John Barrett: Some of the work currently being carried out in Scotland involves the Scottish Executive's introduction of a safer routes to school programme. You mentioned earlier that David Begg—

School Transport (5 Dec 2001)

John Barrett: I beg your pardon, Mr. Winterton, and ask your forgiveness as a new Member learning the system of Westminster Hall debates. I was referring to my hon. Friend the Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb). Does he agree that one of the key issues is the introduction of safe routes to schools programmes such as that at Carricknowe primary school in my constituency? Speed bumps and other measures...

School Transport (5 Dec 2001)

John Barrett: Thank you, Mr Winterton. Urgency is key; any child injured or killed on the way to school is one child too many.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport, Local Government and the Regions: Rail Safety (18 Dec 2001)

John Barrett: Following the Southall train crash and Professor Uff's subsequent recommendations, can the Minister confirm that by February this year, 81 of the recommendations should have been implemented, yet only 15 had been? By February next year, all 93 recommendations should have been implemented. Does he expect that they will be, and if not, why not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Friends of Scotland (15 Jan 2002)

John Barrett: Does the Secretary of State agree that some of the best friends of Scotland work in the film, television and music industries and that one of the best ways to help them in their work promoting Scotland throughout the world would be an early start to the construction of a central Scotland film studio?

Employee Share Schemes Bill (18 Jan 2002)

John Barrett: I start where the hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Ms Munn) left off by congratulating the hon. Member for Edinburgh, North and Leith (Mr. Lazarowicz) on giving us the opportunity to debate the subject. The Bill is a move in the right direction and, as my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston and Surbiton (Mr. Davey) said when he set out in detail our approach, we welcome it. Involvement...

Employee Share Schemes Bill (18 Jan 2002)

John Barrett: I could not agree more. Many employees think that share ownership is for other people, not for the likes of them. People will have to embark on a learning curve: once they discover the benefits that they, their company and their family can gain, the system will gain momentum. I wish the Bill success and look forward to Committee.

John Barrett: If he will make a statement on the impact of the level of the pound on the manufacturing industry in Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Manufacturing (24 Jan 2002)

John Barrett: Yesterday, Scottish manufacturers reported that they had suffered the sharpest drop in exports for three years, with output and employment falling. What more can the Chancellor do to help Scottish manufacturers? How long will we have to wait for action, especially when further falls in output, productivity and employment are predicted?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jan 2002)

John Barrett: The Prime Minister will be aware of the widespread concern that exists about deep vein thrombosis and its connection with long-distance flights. Does he share my concern that the World Health Organisation study into DVT has not only failed to begin, but will take two and a half years to complete? What measures will the Government take in the interim to ensure the safety of the one in 10...

Sudan (13 Mar 2002)

John Barrett: I congratulate the hon. Member for Salisbury (Mr. Key) on initiating the debate. As the hon. Member for Newport, West (Paul Flynn) said, we cannot simply follow where the media decide to send their cameras, when countries are in the news today, or are politically sexy, so everybody cares about them. The hon. Member for Lancaster and Wyre (Mr. Dawson) asked why people were interested in...

Business of the House (14 Mar 2002)

John Barrett: May I add my weight to the call by the hon. Member for Waveney (Mr. Blizzard) for a full debate in the Chamber in Government time following the publication of the energy review, particularly in relation to the infrastructure decisions that will have to be made to further the development of alternative energy generation?
