Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: My hon. Friend is ahead of me. Their accomplice, the right hon. Member for Norwich, South described the Chancellor as "deluded" and said of him: "It's a controlling thing. He thinks he has to control everything". I have still not finished with the Chancellor's colleagues—there are so many. What about the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whom the Chancellor could not even bear to...

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: Read the report.

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: The Chancellor would not.

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: Did my hon. Friend hear the economics editor of the BBC observe last night that although the Treasury was able to give him a list of winners it was, for some reason, unfortunately unable to give him a list of losers?

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: Does the right hon. Gentleman deny that he said, a few moments ago—it will therefore be in Hansard tomorrow—that the Chancellor's reduction in income tax, announced yesterday, was the first such reduction for 75 years?

Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: He is.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights (Tibet/China) (20 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: There will be concern on both sides of the House about the lack of justice in Tibet. Would it not be appropriate for the Prime Minister—whoever he might then be—to meet the Dalai Lama when he next visits Britain, which might, apparently, be next year?

Business of the House (1 Mar 2007)

Paul Goodman: A debate on integration and cohesion would give the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (John Mann) a chance to raise the important issue of anti-Semitism. It would also give the House a chance to discuss relations between Muslims and non-Muslims in Britain. When I asked the Leader of the House about this a fortnight ago, he said that business was tight but that it was an idea that we should actively...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2007)

Paul Goodman: Following the line of thought opened up by the hon. Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick), there are few general opportunities in the House to debate the current state of relations between Muslims and non-Muslims in Britain. Is it possible to have a debate in Government time on integration and cohesion, which would provide the opportunity for a broader debate but would include the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (25 Jan 2007)

Paul Goodman: The Treasury Committee said definitively today: "the liability to pay Air Passenger Duty at the new higher rates will effectively be incurred before the House of Commons has authorised the increase". The Chancellor is evidently too busy working out whether he supports England or Scotland in the World cup to bother with the conventions of the House. Will the Minister guarantee unequivocally...

Orders of the Day: Planning-gain Supplement (Preparations) Bill (15 Jan 2007)

Paul Goodman: I am grateful to the Minister for doing her homework so thoroughly. Will she tell me, as a matter of record, whether the Secretary of State has ever opposed a development in her constituency?

Orders of the Day: Planning-gain Supplement (Preparations) Bill (15 Jan 2007)

Paul Goodman: This Second Reading debate has been good humoured, informative and expert. It is unfair to compliment two speeches in particular, but I must confess that I greatly enjoyed the speech by the right hon. Member for Greenwich and Woolwich (Mr. Raynsford), which was not exactly supportive of his Front Bench colleagues' position, but extraordinarily expert. I also appreciated the speech by my...

Orders of the Day: Planning-gain Supplement (Preparations) Bill (15 Jan 2007)

Paul Goodman: Just to confuse my hon. Friend further, does she agree that, following the speech from the Government Front Bench, it is rather uncertain whether there will be a planning gain supplement at all, since the Minister appeared to water down the Government's position even further?

Orders of the Day: Planning-gain Supplement (Preparations) Bill (15 Jan 2007)

Paul Goodman: Without getting into the business of licks and promises, is my right hon. Friend aware of any precedent for a paving Bill being introduced in advance of a Bill that might not be introduced and is out to formal consultation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Unemployment (7 Dec 2006)

Paul Goodman: Can the Chancellor confirm the simple but little-known claim that unemployment among young men in Britain is now the highest in the whole developed world? A yes or a no will do.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Terrorism (Police Preparedness) (4 Dec 2006)

Paul Goodman: In the aftermath of a terrorist incident in London—which God forbid—the question of costs would soon arise, as it already has in connection with Operation Overt in Buckinghamshire. Last week, the Prime Minister told our local newspaper, the Bucks Free Press, that central Government should cover the costs of Overt. Can the Minister confirm that that is the Government's view?

Orders of the Day: Investment Exchanges and Clearing Houses Bill (28 Nov 2006)

Paul Goodman: I am grateful for the opportunity during this short Third Reading debate—[Hon. Members: "Second!"] I am sorry, I mean Second Reading debate; time has flown so fast that it has evidently left part of my mind behind. On behalf of the official Opposition, I wish the Bill all good speed and I will reiterate briefly why it merits all-party support. I believe that it does, in the end, have...

Orders of the Day: Investment Exchanges and Clearing Houses Bill (28 Nov 2006)

Paul Goodman: No doubt tomorrow, and we all look forward to it. I would like to respond to some of the good and expert speeches, beginning with those of Labour Members. We heard what can fairly be described as two hymns to the City as a powerhouse of capitalism from the hon. Members for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) and for Bristol, East (Kerry McCarthy). Conservative Members enjoyed listening to both....

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address — [First Day] (15 Nov 2006)

Paul Goodman: We know that the central theme of the Queen's Speech is the terrorist threat and our security response. I observe in passing that no Labour Back Bencher remains in place to make a speech on this or any other theme on the first day of our debates on the Queen's Speech. I will do my best to fill the gap. This is my first chance to address the House about these issues since my constituents in...
