Canlyniadau 2081–2100 o 2134 ar gyfer speaker:Siobhain McDonagh

Ministerial Conduct (DTLR) (23 Hyd 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: I am addressing myself directly to the Prime Minister's amendment and the issue of urban regeneration. It would be a good idea if the hon. Gentleman did the same.

Ministerial Conduct (DTLR) (23 Hyd 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: None.

Ministerial Conduct (DTLR) (23 Hyd 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: Much of Mitcham and Morden was laid out in the 1920s and 1930s, and could be described as classic suburbia. However, for too many years the quality of people's lives in neighbourhoods such as Lavender, Phipps Bridge and Figges Marsh in Mitcham and Morden has been challenged by social problems, often manifested in graffiti, vandalism and other forms of antisocial behaviour. That is why I...

Abandoned Vehicles (22 Hyd 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: I am sure that all Members will be pleased with the increase in revenue and the effect of the DVLA tow-away vehicles, but I do not know whether my right hon. Friend is aware that there are only two tow-away teams in Greater London. That means that each constituency is visited less than once a year. Would it not be better to double, or even triple, the number of tow-away teams, given the high...

Abandoned Vehicles (22 Hyd 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the problems with abandoned cars is the length of time they have to be stored? Councils such as my own London borough of Merton have to pay to store such cars, so that a car's value is soon exceeded by the cost to the council of storing it.

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Sporting Talent (19 Gor 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what evaluation methods are in place for projects designed to nurture sporting talent among young people competing at a national level, with special reference to cricket, rugby and tennis; and what results evaluations have shown about the success of such projects.

Written Answers — Treasury: Unemployment (19 Gor 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the impact of recent measures designed to reduce youth and long-term unemployment.

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Royal Mail (18 Gor 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assessment the Government have made of the impact on jobs and postal services of Royal Mail plans to restructure its provision of sorting offices in London.

Written Answers — Transport, Local Government and the Regions: Train Passengers (17 Gor 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what measures exist to require train companies to regulate the number of passengers that trains may safely carry (a) at peak times of travel and (b) at other times; and how such measures are enforced.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Meh 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the case of my constituent, Mr. Dudakia, who disappeared in December while on pilgrimage in India? Obviously, this is a cause of great distress to his family, who have spent a great deal of time and money trying, unsuccessfully, to track him down. Will my right hon. Friend do everything he can to encourage the Indian authorities to continue the...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Short Title, Commencement and Extent ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: It has given you representation in Scotland.

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Short Title, Commencement and Extent ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: Almost four years after getting elected, I still cannot attempt to be as eloquent as other hon. Members have been on this issue and I have not learned the ways of the House enough to want to repeat what other people have said. For my part, supporting the Bill is about saying that we should not discriminate against people of any religion or no religion. A Methodist minister, an imam, a...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Short Title, Commencement and Extent ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: On a point of information, I asked the Chairman of Ways and Means whether I could table such an amendment to either the Representation of the People Act 2000 or the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000. Both times, I was told that such a proposal was outside the scope of the legislation.

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Removal of Disqualification of Clergy ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: I am not sure of the religious background of the hon. Member for New Forest, West (Mr. Swayne), but I imagine that he is not a Catholic. If he were, he would understand that his suggestion that Mr. Cairns might suddenly decide to say mass is an unlikely proposition. I find it strange to argue from the Government Benches that the state has no right, or should have fewer rights, to determine...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Removal of Disqualification of Clergy ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: I was aware of that. I am sorry about the way in which I phrased my argument. The hon. Gentleman is right to draw attention to a further anomaly. An ex-Catholic priest or an ex-orthodox priest, for example, can stand for Parliament. The problem is taking up his seat. My argument with the amendment of the right hon. Member for Maidstone and The Weald (Miss Widdecombe) is not that it suggests...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Removal of Disqualification of Clergy ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: The Bill says that we should not make a distinction between those who are episcopally ordained and those who are not, whether they are Baptists, Methodists or any of the other great faiths. Surely we are saying that it is up to Churches themselves to decide what their ministers or priests can and cannot do and that it is not up to the state to do that. Our job is to extend as far as we...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Removal of Clergy Disqualification) Bill: Removal of Disqualification of Clergy ( 1 Maw 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: The legislation also includes priests in the Orthodox Churches because they, too, are episcopally ordained. It might be useful if we were to concentrate on the Greek Orthodox Church, rather than the Catholic Church, because we seem to be going off in a number of directions that are perhaps not that relevant.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice and Police Bill (29 Ion 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: Any Bill to reduce crime is to be welcomed. Any Bill that tackles head on the burgeoning yob culture prevalent in so many parts of society will be warmly greeted by our constituents. I, too, welcome all the measures in the Bill, but I think that the Government have missed an opportunity to tackle a serious antisocial offence. I offer one or two suggestions as to how to improve the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Ion 2001)

Siobhain McDonagh: Will the Prime Minister join me in congratulating schools in the London borough of Merton, one of the five most improved boroughs in the country in terms of school standards? Will he congratulate in particular the children and staff of Malmesbury primary school, who have achieved an improvement of 140 per cent. in the past five years? Does he agree, however, that there is still much to be...
