Delegated Legislation: Backbench Business — [1st Allotted Day-First Half] — Information for Backbenchers on Statements (20 Jul 2010)

Peter Soulsby: On the need to take this issue forward speedily and robustly, does my hon. Friend agree that it is a matter of considerable regret that the Procedure Committee has not yet been appointed, and will she join me in encouraging Members, particularly on the Opposition Benches, to make up the numbers so as to ensure that this can be dealt with properly? Perhaps my hon. Friend the Member for...

British Waterways (7 Jul 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I very much welcome what the Minister is saying about the future of British Waterways, but does he accept that if it is to have the sustainable future that he talks about, it is vital that it takes with it its assets and its current property, and that they are not ripped out by his friends in the Treasury before the transfer takes place?

British Waterways (7 Jul 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I congratulate my hon. Friend on bringing this important issue before the House. Does he agree that British Waterways has had most success in promoting regeneration when it has brought its own property, land and buildings to the table with partners and has led those partnerships, and that, if it were to lose control of that property and land and those buildings, it would be very much...

Paediatric Cardiac Surgery (7 Jul 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend on obtaining this timely debate and on how she is expressing her concerns. She obviously has considerable understanding and experience of and expertise in these matters. Will she join me in asking the Minister to give an assurance that cost will not be the overwhelming issue that drives the decisions, and that the concerns, fears and wishes of parents and...

Business of the House: Backbench Business Committee (15 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I congratulate my hon. Friend on his recent election to the chairmanship of his important Select Committee. Does he agree that the momentum for change, of which we are clearly a part this evening, must be maintained and that an important part of maintaining it is the setting of a clear timetable, to go on from what we are doing this evening towards the establishment of a House business...

Business of the House: Backbench Business Committee (15 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is a distinction with which we are already familiar in other Select Committees? Evidence is heard in public, but the deliberations take place in private, for the good reason that that enables us to work collaboratively and informally, and we come to better conclusions as a result.

Business of the House: Backbench Business Committee (15 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: Would it not be even more absurd, because it would not be the same person every time? As I understand the proposals, it would be just a committee member making a brief statement, with no debate, no opportunity for questions and, frankly, no purpose.

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: The Minister has talked about a route going beyond Birmingham, and about Scotland. Do the Government remain committed to the Y-shaped link that was part of the previous Government's proposals?

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I thank the Minister for her response on fares, but she did not respond to my question about the Y-shaped link. I am interested in the link not north but east of Birmingham, serving the east midlands, south Yorkshire and, of course, the north-east.

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: On that point, I would be very grateful if the Minister gave way again.

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: Will the Minister give way?

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: Will the Minister give way?

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: rose-

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Mark Lazarowicz) on obtaining this timely debate on an undoubtedly important issue. Those of us who use the midland main line-I know that you do, Mr Betts-are well aware of the enormous success of High Speed 1, not least because when we arrive at St Pancras we must fight our way through the crowds disgorged from trains...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — High Speed Rail (9 Jun 2010)

Peter Soulsby: Having served for some 18 months on the Select Committee that considered the Crossrail Bill, I have a personal commitment to its completion. My hon. Friend argued earlier that investment in rail has been skewed towards London and the south-east at the expense of other parts of the country, but that is not an argument for ditching what is an important part of the transport infrastructure in...

Business of the House (7 Apr 2010)

Peter Soulsby: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the time that has been spent on debating the absence of the Standing Orders from the motion would have been better spent debating the Standing Orders themselves?

High Speed Rail (Government Policy) (30 Mar 2010)

Peter Soulsby: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Carlisle (Mr. Martlew) on securing this important and timely debate, and on putting the case, as he has done on a number of occasions, for having services on the high speed line stop at and serve his constituency and surrounding areas. It is a powerful case, and he has again made it forcefully today. Like other hon. Members, I very much welcome...

High Speed Rail (Government Policy) (30 Mar 2010)

Peter Soulsby: There was some speculation about what particular crime I and others on the Committee had committed. I want to put on the record that, before that procedure is used again for the High Speed 2 line, Parliament ought to consider whether it is not over-cumbersome for modern needs and whether it is, indeed, entirely fit for purpose. I put that on the record in the hope that others need not suffer...

High Speed Rail (Government Policy) (30 Mar 2010)

Peter Soulsby: On the shape, would my right hon. Friend agree that the difficulty with a Y-shaped link is the potential for downgrading the midland main line to little more than a commuter line? Such a case would significantly disadvantage people in the east midlands.

Business of the House (18 Mar 2010)

Peter Soulsby: The Leader of the House has referred to the shadow Foreign Secretary's refusal to appear before a Select Committee despite being prepared to answer questions on BBC radio. Does she agree that we need to have an urgent debate about the powers of Select Committees to summon Members before them to answer legitimate questions-particularly questions about their knowledge of the circumstances...
