Business of the House: Social Exclusion (11 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for City of Chester (Christine Russell), who demonstrated her commitment to her community. She made a telling remark when she said that town hall does not always know best. In many cases individuals—a community group, a head teacher or, as she said, the fire brigade—make a difference. We are often critical of the Government for adopting the fire...

Business of the House: Antisocial Behaviour (18 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: The non-emergency number in north Yorkshire is 0800 606 0247. Is that not slightly more difficult to remember than the number that my hon. Friend suggests we should adopt?

Business of the House: Antisocial Behaviour (18 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Hartlepool (Mr. Wright). My mother's family hail from west Hartlepool and I have happy memories of visiting the town and being on the beach at Seaton Carew. As children, when we were not visiting the beach at Hartlepool, we would often visit the Yorkshire coast. From that experience, I know that antisocial behaviour is nothing new. Travelling down...

Business of the House: Antisocial Behaviour (18 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: I thank my hon. Friend for that. As he knows, I completed my 50th year during the Christmas break. It is downhill from now on: cronyism beckons. Before I end my speech, I must refer to the problem of mini-motos. They are a real bane for many communities, but we must think carefully before we regulate, because many people use motorcycles responsibly for recreation purposes. Some use them for...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Health Care-acquired Infections (23 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: Is my hon. Friend aware that in many German hospitals once beds are vacated they are sent to a cleaning station in the basement, where they are cleaned and shrink-wrapped before being sent back to the ward? Would not such a practice address some of our hot-bedding problems in British hospitals?

Orders of the Day: Energy Saving (Daylight) Bill (26 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: Surely the point is that while many children are taken to school by car, many more make their way home on foot, because the school day finishes before the working day. Increasing the daylight in the evening would reduce the number of children killed or injured walking home in the dark.

Oral Answers to Questions — Constitutional Affairs: Casino Advisory Panel (30 Jan 2007)

Robert Goodwill: Scarborough already has one brand new casino.

Will the Secretary of State reassure me that it will be eligible to apply for the new licence?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pensions (5 Feb 2007)

Robert Goodwill: The Government have ignored both the parliamentary ombudsman and the House's Public Administration Committee. Now the European Court of Justice has ruled that the UK pension rules offer inadequate protection for workers such as those formerly employed by Scarborough coach builder Henlys. Could it be that the solution to the problem is being blocked by the Treasury until the new incumbent at...

Business of the House: Future of Buses (8 Feb 2007)

Robert Goodwill: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is important for people to have better transport links to hospitals, as many people in Hartlepool are worried about the distance that they have to travel to access health care?

Business of the House: Future of Buses (8 Feb 2007)

Robert Goodwill: When I was elected to Parliament, I was delighted to be asked to serve on the Transport Committee. I had heard much about the chairmanship of the formidable hon. Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Mrs. Dunwoody) and about the hard time she gave those giving evidence, even Ministers, when they refused to answer the question. I very much enjoyed the evidence sessions that we held when preparing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Marine Environment (19 Apr 2007)

Robert Goodwill: Belgium and the Netherlands have placed restrictions on marine aggregate dredging in their waters. We now export 30 per cent. of the sand and gravel that is dredged from our waters to those countries and to France. Does the Minister intend to take measures to restrict the damage caused to our marine environment as a result of measures taken by other countries to protect theirs?

Points of Order: Marine Environment (19 Apr 2007)

Robert Goodwill: On delivery, much of the improvement that has taken place over the past 25 years is due to European legislation produced when the last Conservative Government were in power and supported by us. The delivery of clean beaches, cleaner seas and cleaner waters has largely been done on our watch.
