Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police (19 Jun 2006)

Robert Goodwill: I thank the Home Secretary for that response, especially in relation to my own region. I understand his wish to kick this issue into the long grass; I hope that, in the case of Yorkshire and the Humber, it will be elephant grass. As a rule, the Government are keen to have a big conversation with the British people. Will the Home Secretary assure me that in the case of enforced police mergers...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Live Music (3 Jul 2006)

Robert Goodwill: What would the Minister say to Steve Dickinson, the proprietor of Mojo's café in Scarborough, who has had to curtail his popular Wednesday afternoon jamming sessions because the two-in-a-bar rule has been abolished? He now faces having to pay for a licence for such events, which allow local bands their first opportunity, and local people to hear music for free at no cost to the taxpayer,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Nuclear Power (6 Jul 2006)

Robert Goodwill: The outcome of the energy review with regard to nuclear power has hardly been the best kept secret in Whitehall.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jul 2006)

Robert Goodwill: Whether he has made an assessment of the environmental and economic implications of requiring 2 m uncropped field margins.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Uncropped Field Margins (20 Jul 2006)

Robert Goodwill: I thank the Minister for that short answer. I am sure that he would wish to enhance and augment the rural environment, but I am not sure that that is the best way to do it. It tends to penalise farmers who have retained their hedges and helps farmers who have bulldozed them. If the Minister took the opportunity to inspect some of those field margins, he would see that they are choked with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Yorkshire Regiment (24 Jul 2006)

Robert Goodwill: The Minister has already mentioned the Territorial Army battalion. A number of soldiers from the Scarborough TA centre have served with distinction in a number of theatres. Sadly, the staffing has already been cut from six to three, with an NCO in charge. We are told that further cuts will mean that there will be no full-time staff. Can the Minister reassure me that the writing is not on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Licensing Act (9 Oct 2006)

Robert Goodwill: Is the Minister aware that many tourists on the north Yorkshire coast this summer have been disappointed at not being able to have a drink in small hotels and guesthouses because the owners of those premises have been put off by the cost and the bureaucracy involved, so the tourists have to go into seaside towns to other institutions where there may have been a lot of trouble in the past,...

Orders of the Day: New Clause 28 — Delegation of power to make level crossing orders (9 Oct 2006)

Robert Goodwill: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that an amendment is made more important by the fact that some parts of our rail network are approaching saturation point? In many cases the time between the barriers opening and closing again can be as little as one minute, which encourages some local people, who get used to the situation, to flout the law and cause accidents, which are, sadly, increasing.

Orders of the Day: New Clause 28 — Delegation of power to make level crossing orders (9 Oct 2006)

Robert Goodwill: As an HGV driver, I am all too aware of the problems of low bridges. I am sure that the Minister agrees that in most cases of an HGV or double-decker bus driver hitting a low bridge it is an inadvertent act. I am unsure, therefore, whether increasing the penalties would reduce the number of bridge strikes. May I suggest that the Minister drive between Wakefield and Doncaster, where there is a...

Orders of the Day: New Clause 1 — Driving with Illegal Drugs (9 Oct 2006)

Robert Goodwill: Does not the Minister think that, in practice, the Crown Prosecution Service will take a view based on how successful litigation has been? While it is illegal, for example, to steal things in this country, one is unlikely to be prosecuted for stealing an orange, but more likely to be prosecuted for stealing a lorry full of oranges. The CPS will take a view based on the amount of drug or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: Parenting Skills (12 Oct 2006)

Robert Goodwill: Does the Minister agree that one key parenting skill, in which school leavers are often deficient, is the ability to prepare and cook balanced nutritional meals for children? Does he think that more should be done to improve the teaching of cooking skills in schools, which would address children's diets not only for the five meals a week that they eat in school, but for the 16 meals that they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Alcohol Exclusion Zones (23 Oct 2006)

Robert Goodwill: On 22 September, Scarborough council extended its already successful alcohol exclusion zone to cover 150 streets, including the Falsgrave park area. At the same time, Conservative-controlled Scarborough, in conjunction with local company Electric Angel Design, rolled out a range of new, funky, lime green signs, which are hard to miss and designed to be eye catching for younger people. Will...
