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

Eric Martlew: Why does the hon. Gentleman exclude the channel tunnel?

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

Eric Martlew: My hon. Friend was very bad.

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

Eric Martlew: I am glad that you are in the Chair, Mr. Illsley. Perhaps we will not have any instances of mistaken identity today, which is something that can happen. As I am sure you are aware, a number of hon. Members who wanted to attend this debate are not here because of confusion over timing. Apparently the usual channels collapsed, and the debate was on the Whip as being at 2.30. Those who wanted to...

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

Eric Martlew: That clarifies matters. I was not trying to make a political point; I just wanted to know what the position was. Let me concentrate on the classic railways for a moment. I get the feeling that because the Government want to promote the new high speed line, they have been indicating that the money spent on the upgrade of the west coast main line-they spent £9 million, as opposed to the £30...

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

Eric Martlew: I agree with the Minister. I bear the scars of many a bad journey on the west coast main line. I will come back to that point, but I am not sure whether disruption can be avoided. We need a high speed line and we need to maintain the classic lines. I am sure that the constituencies of a number of Members here will be affected by the high speed line, but will not get the benefits from it. I am...

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

Eric Martlew: I agree totally. One of the issues I will not talk about today is the financing of the high speed rail line; however, I got an indication yesterday during the continuation of the Budget debate that the Conservatives were suggesting they were going to take another £6 billion out of transport. If so, the hon. Gentleman will have great difficulty in getting any rail improvements in his area....

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

Eric Martlew: I am afraid that that is what gives politicians a bad name-answering a question with another question. I would like to continue before we get too deeply involved in that matter. There are issues that I do not want to get involved in today. What matters is the high speed rail link and whether it should go to Heathrow. That issue will be debated at length-will the high speed line link with...

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

Eric Martlew: The reality is that traditionally people from the north-west have come into London via Euston, without diverting to Heathrow. Of course, if someone is living in the Manchester area they will use Manchester airport for air travel and therefore they will not want to go into Heathrow at all. I think that that answers that question. I also do not want to go down the road of considering whether...

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

Eric Martlew: I accept what the Minister says and perhaps I had not taken that point into full account. The other development that would obviously be of great benefit would be if some of the high speed trains on HS2 could go straight to St. Pancras station and then people could travel on HS1 into Europe. Hopefully, we will look at that issue; we will probably have a little time to look at it. The other...

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

Eric Martlew: I understand that and I know the reason why; it was because the vast majority of the people in this country at that time did not have a vote. [Laughter.] That was the reason why.

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

Eric Martlew: There is another point about building the line. I notice that my hon. Friend the Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Donohoe), an hon. Member from Scotland, is in Westminster Hall today. Whose responsibility is it to fund the high speed line in Scotland? Transport is a devolved matter. It might be difficult for the Scots to find the full amount of money required, but would it be possible for...

Points of Order (23 Maw 2010)

Eric Martlew: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The right hon. and learned Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Mr. Hogg) is a barrister, but I was hoping that you would find me innocent of the crime, Mr. Speaker. I did not mention the right hon. and learned Gentleman, and I did not specifically mention his constituency. I referred to Lincolnshire; I did not know the site was in his constituency. The precedent...

Points of Order (17 Maw 2010)

Eric Martlew: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Thank you very much for the speedy way in which you have dealt with the issue that I raised, but is not the real reform that we need in the Palace of Westminster that Secretaries of State in the House of Lords should be obliged to come to this Chamber to make statements to the democratically elected Members and answer questions?

Points of Order (16 Maw 2010)

Eric Martlew: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I have raised a lot of points of order over the past 20 years, and I do not think that any of them have been in order, but I hope that I will be successful this time. Last Thursday a statement was made in the House of Lords by the Secretary of State for Transport. It was 40 minutes before that statement was made here. I went to the Table Office to get a copy...

Points of Order (16 Maw 2010)

Eric Martlew: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. I do not have any disagreement with that; in fact, I have advocated that the Secretary of State should come to this Chamber. However, statements should be made available to Members of this House after the Secretary of State has sat down, because they are available to noble Lords and the general public.

Business of the House: High Speed Rail (11 Maw 2010)

Eric Martlew: I congratulate the Minister on these excellent proposals, and on rejecting the Conservative proposal for the line to go from Manchester to Leeds, cutting out all of Cumbria and south-west Scotland. Having said that, can we talk about the fork? When they get to the fork, do the Government plan to build both lines at the same time, or one after the other? I suspect that the west coast line is...

[Mr. Eric Martlew in the Chair] — Motoring ( 9 Maw 2010)

Eric Martlew: Order. Interventions should be short.

Conflict Prevention ( 9 Chw 2010)

Eric Martlew: Order. That would not be appropriate.

Conflict Prevention ( 9 Chw 2010)

Eric Martlew: Order, Interventions should be short.

Conflict Prevention ( 9 Chw 2010)

Eric Martlew: Order. Five hon. Members wish to speak, and I intend to start the winding-up speeches at 12 noon. I hope that hon. Members will bear that in mind.
