Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill ( 8 Ebr 2010)

Tony Wright: The wash-up process in general leaves much about which to be dissatisfied and, one day, no doubt we shall turn our minds to that. Insufficient scrutiny even of the parts of the Bill that remain leaves much about which to be dissatisfied-major amendments to the civil service provisions were tabled but were never reached here or in the other place, yet one stray amendment has now found its way...

Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill: Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill ( 8 Ebr 2010)

Tony Wright: The hon. and learned Gentleman anticipates my later remarks-the case for fresh thinking about what happens at the end of a Parliament. Should things endure at all, or should they simply fall and have to start again? The case for that is strong, and we have an obligation to review this period, because none of us feels happy about the outcome. I regret the loss of parts of the Bill that would...

Business of the House ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Tony Wright: Until a few minutes ago, I had not intended to say anything about the motion. I was certainly taking a more benign and generous view of the situation than the hon. Member for Oxford, West and Abingdon (Dr. Harris). I accepted the statement by my right hon. and learned Friend the Leader of the House that she wanted the Standing Order to be enacted but that, unfortunately, that would be...

Business of the House ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Tony Wright: rose-

Business of the House ( 7 Ebr 2010)

Tony Wright: I understand that this is not a difficulty of my right hon. and learned Friend's making and that she is not responsible for the situation in which we find ourselves. However, we are in a very silly position because the House has resolved that it wants to do this in this Parliament-that is what the House has agreed-and it simply requires a small action on her part to enable it to happen. The...

Business of the House (25 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for bringing forward the order on the Back-Bench business committee. I also thank her for her general role in enabling this process to be carried forward to a successful conclusion. This has not been a happy Parliament, but we can at least claim that we have laid the foundation for a slightly happier one next time. Can my right hon. and learned Friend...

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Equitable Life (16 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I am very grateful to the hon. Gentleman. As he says, I have been critical of the Government on this issue on behalf of the ombudsman, but I have never understood what the Conservative position is.

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Equitable Life (16 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: Having read the motion, I am even less clear. When the ombudsman's report came out, it was widely estimated that it would cost about £4 billion to implement. I have never been clear as to whether the Conservative party was saying that that was a bill that it was prepared to meet. If the hon. Gentleman is not saying that, there will be a suspicion that what we are hearing is some kind of...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Census: Sikhs (12 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what recent consideration has been given to including a separate category for Sikhs in the ethnic categories to be included in the 2011 Census.

Written Answers — Health: Hearing Impaired: Health Services (10 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will take steps to maintain the present (a) level of funding for audiology training courses and (b) number of trained paediatric audiologists.

Business of the House: Chair (Terminology) ( 4 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I will be extremely brief, as I spoke at some length last Monday. Let me say to my friend-he is my friend-and parliamentary neighbour the hon. Member for South Staffordshire (Sir Patrick Cormack) that I have enjoyed over the years hearing him denounce furniturism. But I also have to tell him that if we can safely and sensibly move from a term that is intrinsically gender-laden to one that is...

Business of the House: Chair (Terminology) ( 4 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: If the hon. Gentleman does not mind, I will not, because I am going to end my speech very soon. We have reached a point at which it can no longer be acceptable for the Executive to control business that should properly belong to the House. That is the unifying theme of our proposals. However, I strongly agree with my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South that with control comes...

Business of the House: Chair (Terminology) ( 4 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I have never considered the argument for a secret ballot to be a craven argument; I have always considered it a rather traditional democratic argument. The real contention now surrounds the amendments on the Back-Bench business committee. The one thing that has been agreed by everyone during this process-even those who were not persuaded by what we said about the House business committee-is...

Business of the House ( 4 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I may be able to help the hon. Gentleman a little. If the House were to approve the motion on the House business committee, we would no longer be forced to be a supplicant of Government in order to ensure that our own business is discussed. Surely that it is the issue that we need to nail down today.

Major Capital Contracts (Skills Training Requirements): Schedule 2 — Consequential amendments and transitional provision relating to Part 1 ( 2 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I shall be very brief. In some ways, this should be called the "constitutional highways and byways" Bill, because we have roamed freely during its passage. For a moment I wish to return to where we started, because I was keen on where we started and, in particular, on the proposition that the time had finally come, after 150 years, to put the civil service on to a statutory basis. Many of us...

Major Capital Contracts (Skills Training Requirements): New Clause 22 — Transfer of records to Public Record Office ( 2 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: One of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State's many enduring legacies is the introduction of the Freedom of Information Act, and it is appropriate that he is introducing an improvement to that measure in the last days of this Parliament. First, let me quickly welcome the dog that did not bark: the proposal to exempt Cabinet materials, which was the original intention. I understand that...

Major Capital Contracts (Skills Training Requirements): New Clause 22 — Transfer of records to Public Record Office ( 2 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: In the unlikely event that we had a monarch who was seeking to subvert the constitution, would it not be in the public interest for us to know about that?

Major Capital Contracts (Skills Training Requirements): Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill (Programme) (No. 6) ( 2 Maw 2010)

Tony Wright: I wanted to agree with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Justice that there was no golden age, but in the age in which we live, this measure has become a Christmas tree Bill of large proportions. We are used to such Bills, but this is a Christmas tree Bill for which there is no Christmas, which makes it even more unusual. My right hon. Friend prayed in aid the Public...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (24 Chw 2010)

Tony Wright: Even after four inquiries, it is still impossible not to be shocked by the record of failure of care in this case. We now know, beyond peradventure, what happened, and I think we know why it happened. What we do not yet know enough about is how it could have been allowed to happen. That is why there is a valid case for a fifth inquiry, into the regulatory structure, and I am glad the...
