Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Nick Palmer: I am just concerned, as are a lot of people out there, that what is underlying this debate is a Front-Bench stitch-up. None of the Front Benchers are saying clearly that they are taking a different course. They are whingeing at length about the process, but we are not hearing an alternative concept. For me, the basic case for what is being proposed has not been made, and until we have a...

Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Nick Palmer: Is the hon. Gentleman going to proceed from his party political knockabout to tell us what the Conservative party's position is? Were it to take power, would it not do something very similar?

Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Nick Palmer: I shall be brief, because time is short. I am possibly one of the few Members who have suffered directly from illegal copying. When I produced my video game it was almost immediately copied, and I presume that I lost some royalties from that. So I do not consider this to be a completely trivial problem, as has been suggested. However, there are two basic difficulties. First, the remedy is...

Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Nick Palmer: The hon. Gentleman is quite right. Either the law will be effective or it will not. If it is effective, it will impose intolerable sanctions on individuals who are not the main instigators. If it is ineffective, we are wasting our time. I agree that the focus should be on the wholesale commercial violators. I would be very much in favour of stricter penalties for them, because I recognise...

Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Nick Palmer: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is quite a lot of concern among members of the wider public who are interested in these things that this widening seems to be taking place in a Bill that is coming in right at the end of the Parliament, when there is limited scope for consideration? That is one reason why it makes sense to narrow the scope.

Written Answers — Home Department: Post Office (11 Maw 2010)

Nick Palmer: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has discussed with Post Office Ltd. the award of the contract set out in tender notice 2009/S 247-354963.

Written Answers — Home Department: Post Office (11 Maw 2010)

Nick Palmer: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he made an assessment of awarding the contract set out in tender notice 2009/S 247-354963 to Post Office Ltd outside the competitive process.

International Financial Transactions (Tax) (10 Maw 2010)

Nick Palmer: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, my colleague from Robin Hood land, for giving way. Does he agree that it is essential that any such proposal should be adopted on a global basis, because the money would otherwise simply flee to those areas that do not provide it? I therefore welcome the fact that the Government, particularly the Prime Minister, have been taking it forward, and that there has...

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Post Office ( 9 Maw 2010)

Nick Palmer: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills whether he has had discussions with the Secretary of State for the Home Department on the suitability of Post Office Ltd as a bidder for the contract set out in tender notice 2009/S 247-354963.

Written Answers — Home Department: Identity and Passport Service: Contracts ( 5 Maw 2010)

Nick Palmer: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he made an assessment of the merits of incorporating the specification for the Check and Send service in the requirements of the Identity and Passport Service tender notice for the procurement of front-office identity services.

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: indicated assent.

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: On a point of information, Nottinghamshire accepts that it has done well from the local government settlement. The council wants to freeze council tax, which is a political issue. Incidentally, I am a doctor of mathematics so the hon. Gentleman should not ask me to operate on him.

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: On the contrary, Nottinghamshire is, I believe, the only county in Britain where not only people at severe risk have personal care support, but also people at moderate risk. I may be wrong, but the council is certainly one of the very few, because of the good record of the Labour administration.

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: I have some personal connection with this issue. My late father suffered from dementia, and my mother and I were his carers until he died aged 75. Before I discuss general policy issues, I shall make a few extrapolations from my personal experience. I am aware that people are fearful of dementia, partly because it is not at present curable and partly because they fear many of the aspects that...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: The hon. Gentleman is right. From talking to other families in that situation, I know that it is common for the carers to suffer much more than the sufferer, although that was not the case for my family. The person with the condition will sometimes have a diminished recognition of just how bad the situation is, but the carers can see something tragic going on, and it is important that they...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: That is correct. I also would not say that every public sector home is a model in its treatment of Alzheimer's. I am basically saying that it is important that each area has available centres of excellence, and that that should be a responsibility of local councils. We can debate how they can achieve that, although to some extent that is a secondary matter, but they should not pursue policies...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: I agree with the hon. Gentleman; that is an important point, although, to be honest, I did not include it in my speech notes. However, I am glad that he has raised it, because it will become increasingly important. Often, somebody with difficulties will move home to be closer to relatives able to give support. The continuity of support then is extremely critical. What should we be trying to...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: Yes, we are part of the world community on that. It is entirely appropriate that Britain should play as full a part in research as it can. It might be that the important breakthrough will be made somewhere else and that we will develop it-that is the way things happen in medical research. Private research is intensive, because the first company to develop a treatment will do well out of it,...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Dementia Services (27 Ion 2010)

Nick Palmer: Yes, and I can see that the hon. Gentleman's brain is in an excellent state, because he has anticipated what I was about to say. My next point was that we need to educate GPs, the public and non-specialist health and social care staff to recognise and respond to the signs of early onset, and to distinguish accurately between normal absent-mindedness, which is not totally unknown even in this...
