Home Affairs and Constitution (27 Jun 2001)

Paul Goodman: It is delightful to follow the hon. Member for Gloucester (Mr. Dhanda), parts of whose speech I found extremely moving and touching. There may be a lesson in what he said for some parts of my party, too. He did not look nervous at all in making his maiden speech, but I confess that it is with a sensation almost of fear that I rise to address the House for the first time. It is awesome in...

Business of the House (12 Jul 2001)

Paul Goodman: The right hon. Gentleman did not confirm that the Prime Minister will come to the House next week to make a statement on Northern Ireland. Given the gravity of the situation, does he not agree that despite the burdens on the Prime Minister's time it is right for him to make such a statement before the recess? Will he guarantee that his right hon. Friend will do that?

International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

Paul Goodman: I wish to declare an interest of a kind. According to the Muslim Council of Great Britain at the time of the general election, my constituency has the highest proportion of ethnic minority members of any Conservative-held seat. According to the 1991 census, which is now 10 years out of date, up to 7,000 people of Pakistani and Kashmiri descent were living in High Wycombe, and I hope that the...

Coalition against International Terrorism (16 Oct 2001)

Paul Goodman: Having heard the concise and cogent speech of the hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) and the reception from Labour Back Benchers to the speech of the Foreign Secretary, I am not sure whether there is more support for the Government's position from Opposition Members than from Labour Members. However, the robustly pro-American contribution of the hon. Member for Waveney (Mr. Blizzard)...

Business of the House (18 Oct 2001)

Paul Goodman: Could the Leader of the House provide the House with an opportunity to debate the Government's proposals to legislate against religious hatred so that Opposition Members and, perhaps, Government Members can inquire how they are going to do so without a definition of religion in the Bill?

Business of the House (25 Oct 2001)

Paul Goodman: The Independent reported this morning that the news about terminal 5 will be announced "at the very moment when Britain appears to be about to join a land war against the Taliban". How on earth is that statement compatible with the answer that the right hon. Gentleman gave earlier? Will he now give a firm guarantee, which he failed to give to the shadow Leader of the House, that an...

Stakeholder Pensions (13 Nov 2001)

Paul Goodman: I am very grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way. Will he now answer directly the question put to him by my hon. Friend the Member for Tatton (Mr. Osborne)? How many of the 416,000 stakeholder pensions sold have been sold to people in the target group?

Benefits Uprating (28 Nov 2001)

Paul Goodman: The Secretary of State knocked on the door of Help the Aged yesterday, and Help the Aged said of the pensioner credit that it is complex and arbitrary, and will draw half of the older population into means testing. What is his response to that?

Human Reproductive Cloning Bill [Lords] (Allocation of Time): Miscellaneous (29 Nov 2001)

Paul Goodman: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidstone and The Weald (Miss Widdecombe) said, the Government do not need the legislation for the reason that they gave because they can block the entry of that professor under the Immigration Act 1971? Significantly, the Minister failed to answer that point.

Orders of the Day — Human Reproductive Cloning Bill[Lords] (29 Nov 2001)

Paul Goodman: The essence of the Minister's case is that we need the Bill today to fill a legal loophole. Will she please explain why we need that loophole filled today, why it is being filled in such a short time and why she is refusing to address in the Bill the concerns raised by my right hon. and hon. Friends and others?

Paul Goodman: Will the Chancellor give way?

Public Services (3 Dec 2001)
