Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (28 Jun 2005)

Adam Holloway: I know that it is conventional to say nice things about one's predecessor, but even if it were not, I would want to say them about Chris Pond. He was the Member for Gravesham from 1997 until 2005, and from 2003 onwards he was a Minister at the Department for Work and Pensions. I first came across him when I was making a series of programmes about homelessness in London. I know that he spent...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Incapacity Benefit Green Paper (28 Nov 2005)

Adam Holloway: Why the incapacity benefit Green Paper was not published before the summer recess.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Incapacity Benefit Green Paper (28 Nov 2005)

Adam Holloway: Does the Secretary of State acknowledge that, in 1998, one of his many predecessors said that "1 million disabled people say that they want to work but are not being given the chance."—[ Official Report, 28 October 1998; Vol. 318, c. 340.]? Why are 1 million people still waiting?

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Supplementary Estimates, 2005–06 — Ministry of Defence (20 Mar 2006)

Adam Holloway: The report by the Select Committee on Defence states: "Telling Parliament that the costs of the deployment to Afghanistan is 'around a billion' is just not good enough. This is a very large amount of . . . money, and the public deserve better information on how it is going to be spent." Costs are imprecise, because we do not know precisely what they will be. We are told that the aims are,...

Dna Database (30 Mar 2006)

Adam Holloway: I am delighted to see that hon. Members on both sides of the House are busily engaged in other important matters this afternoon. The national deoxyribonucleic acid database—the national DNA database—has the potential to transform our country into a low-crime society, but it also has the potential to make us feel that we are living in the "Big Brother" house. There are currently about 3...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Military Deployment (Afghanistan) (22 May 2006)

Adam Holloway: If he will list the security tasks being undertaken by the UK armed forces in support of the Afghan Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Military Deployment (Afghanistan) (22 May 2006)

Adam Holloway: Why are our armed forces still planning to conduct joint police patrols when the police in Helmand province are wildly corrupt and, as yet, unreformed? To what extent is the Secretary of State encouraging President Karzai to use the detailed coalition intelligence material that we possess to support the prosecution of major drug traffickers with close political connections?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Child Support Agency (12 Jun 2006)

Adam Holloway: If he will make a statement on the recent performance of the Child Support Agency.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Child Support Agency (12 Jun 2006)

Adam Holloway: Staff at the agency say that the current reorganisation will lead only to more backlog. When Sir David Henshaw concludes his report, that may lead to further disarray. This situation has been an absolute nightmare for many of my constituents and, I guess, those of Members on both sides of the House. When do the Government think that they are finally going to sort out this farce?

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Troop Deployment (Helmand Province) (21 Jun 2006)

Adam Holloway: I thank the Speaker for granting me this debate and I apologise to the Minister for trashing a second morning of his time. The Government's commitment to Afghanistan is brave and principled. As I am sure the Minister will point out, we cannot allow it again to become a failed state—one from which the likes of Osama bin Laden could plot the murder of thousands of innocent people. One should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Afghanistan (Troops Levels) (10 Jul 2006)

Adam Holloway: The Minister is aware that we will not win this unless we get the reconstruction right. Commanders on the ground say that only a very small amount of reconstruction has been delivered to the people of Helmand. Given the need to maintain the good will of ordinary villagers, is it not time massively to upscale the budgets and the delivery of reconstruction, to drop DFID's somewhat politically...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asylum Seekers (17 Jul 2006)

Adam Holloway: What criteria his Department applies when dispersing applicants for asylum across the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asylum Seekers (17 Jul 2006)

Adam Holloway: Will the Minister tell us why the national asylum support service's regional language list for allocating asylum seekers to the regions was discontinued?

Points of Order (24 Oct 2006)

Adam Holloway: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I seek your guidance on reports in The Times that my former employer, ITN, is to have its reporting from war zones restricted by the Ministry of Defence. Given the extreme difficulties in reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan without MOD co-operation, and the importance of the public being allowed access to ITN's first-hand reporting, is it not appropriate...

Orders of the Day: Foreign Affairs and Defence (22 Nov 2006)

Adam Holloway: The Defence Committee has discussed the shortages of helicopters. I do not know whether my right hon. Friend is aware that several private companies have made offers to the MOD to provide logistical support, thereby freeing up military helicopters, especially in Afghanistan. Ministers have told us that there would be a problem with liability and insurance, but I understand from at least one...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pensions (27 Nov 2006)

Adam Holloway: If he will make a statement on the plans announced in the Queen's Speech to reform the pension system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pensions (27 Nov 2006)

Adam Holloway: While reform of the pension system is badly needed, is it not the case that millions of women remain disadvantaged in terms of pension provision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Afghanistan (11 Dec 2006)

Adam Holloway: Is the Secretary of State seriously saying that senior officers, both those deploying imminently to Afghanistan and those in deployments to come, are not complaining about the lack of helicopter assets?

Afghanistan (9 Jan 2007)

Adam Holloway: I thank my right hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Sir John Stanley) for his interesting contribution. What strikes me about the situations in Afghanistan and Iraq, particularly Afghanistan, is the Government's lack of candour. A long briefing that the military gave the Defence Committee during its visit last year to Kandahar was very interesting. At the end of it, I bumped...

Afghanistan (9 Jan 2007)

Adam Holloway: No, I am not suggesting that.
