Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Cost of Living (16 Mai 2012)

Tom Harris: Does my hon. Friend see any merit in the idea of alleviating drought conditions in the south of the country with some form of network distribution of water? That should be implemented in order to allow water from Scotland—believe me, we have too much of it—to be transported south in an efficient manner through a national pipeline network.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Civil Servants: Pay ( 1 Mai 2012)

Tom Harris: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what the process was for the awarding of bonuses to civil servants in 2011-12; how many civil servants received bonuses in 2011-12; what the monetary value was of such bonuses; and what the annual salaries were of the recipients.

Sittings of the House (1 May): Sunday Trading (London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games) Bill [Lords] (30 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: An hon. Member no longer in his place made a valid point, even though I come at this from completely opposite directions. The Secretary of State is responsible for business and enterprise in this country. He has said that there will be a huge economic benefit from the Bill even outside London during the Olympics and Paralympics. If he is correct and we see however many hundreds of millions of...

Sittings of the House (1 May): Sunday Trading (London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games) Bill [Lords] (Allocation of Time) (30 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: I shall address my comments specifically to the programme motion. We have known about the Olympics since 6 July 2005. Today, at the fag end of a weary and exhausted parliamentary Session, we are being asked to go through every single stage of a Bill that, as the Minister rightly said, is short but important. It is important because of the effect that it will have on the lives of many...

Sittings of the House (1 May): Sunday Trading (London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games) Bill [Lords] (Allocation of Time) (30 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: The hon. Gentleman has a strange idea of what is a new idea. This proposal was debated and defeated under the Thatcher Government, and as the Minister said, one of his own Back Benchers, the hon. Member for Fylde (Mark Menzies), brought forward proposals on it last year. This is not a new proposal; it has been on the take-off ground for a long time.

Sittings of the House (1 May): Sunday Trading (London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games) Bill [Lords] (Allocation of Time) (30 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: I am grateful for your instruction, Mr Deputy Speaker. I also question the fact that this debate is taking place on, essentially, the last day of the Session, given that the issue has always been subject to a one-line vote and is a matter of conscience. So the Government knew that a great many Members would not be in the Chamber, but would be out campaigning in the local elections. That shows...

Business of the House (26 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: I respectfully remind the Leader of the House that Government Ministers are accountable not to the Leveson inquiry but to this House, just as ordinary Members of this House—including my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant)—are accountable not to the Leveson inquiry but to their constituents. Does the Leader of the House agree with the wording in the ministerial code of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Leveson Inquiry (25 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: In my experience, Secretaries of State speak more to their political advisers than they do to their Ministers or, indeed, to members of their own families. The House is being invited to believe either that the relationship between the Secretary of State and Adam Smith was so dysfunctional that the Secretary of State was unaware of the extent and nature of the communication between Adam Smith...

Business of the House (19 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: Despite the dismal weather of the past week, large parts of England face drought conditions. Meanwhile, in Glasgow we know that it is summer only because the rain warms up. Does the Leader of the House see any value in discussing in a debate on the Floor of the House the costs and practicalities of a nationwide water distribution network so that we in Scotland could perhaps share some of our...

Women and Equalities: Abu Qatada (19 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: Did the Home Secretary—at any time and from any quarter—receive advice to delay the re-arrest of Abu Qatada by 24 hours? That is a very simple question, demanding a yes or no answer.

Written Answers — Transport: Rolling Stock (19 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether her Department received a formal offer from Alstom to build five-car Pendolino trains for use on the Glasgow to Manchester Trans-Pennine passenger service.

Written Answers — Transport: Rolling Stock (19 Ebr 2012)

Tom Harris: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions she has had with train manufacturers concerning the procurement of new units for the Manchester to Glasgow Transpennine Express route.

Amendment of the Law (26 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: When the Chief Secretary meets the Chancellor every morning at the Treasury to receive his instructions for the day, has the Chancellor ever once explained to him how his party can possibly blame the spending of the Labour Government for the deficit while having supported every single penny of spending right up till November 2008— 18 months before the general election?

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Domestic Violence (20 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: What recent assessment he has made of the role of special domestic violence courts in improving prosecution rates for domestic violence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Domestic Violence (20 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: In the light of the truly disgraceful comments by the actor Dennis Waterman, does the Minister agree that now might be a good time to reassure the House that the vital services provided by domestic violence courts will be maintained, despite the court closure programme and the plan to close 23 of them? Will those vital services be protected during the transfer of services?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 3 - Obligation to operate an air transport service serving a specified route (13 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: I am grateful for the Minister’s comments. I admit that it would have come as something of a surprise if she had stood up and said that she would accept the new clause. Perhaps it was my fault for announcing that it was a probing amendment; in future, I should try to keep the Government Whip on his toes instead of on his BlackBerry. It is incredibly tempting to press the new clause to a...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 3 - Obligation to operate an air transport service serving a specified route (13 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause would give the Secretary of State the authority to require the CAA to impose on any airline an obligation to provide a service on any route. The CAA would draw up such a regulation, which could be imposed only after consultation with all interested bodies. I accept that, at first glance, the new clause might be interpreted...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 3 - Obligation to operate an air transport service serving a specified route (13 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and he has been very consistent in his support for the economic case for Heathrow. I spoke flippantly about this being some kind of Stalinist plot; at this point it may be wise to mention that the hon. Member for Stockton South (James Wharton) has also called for Government action to preserve slots for regional services, and has called for a public service...

Business of the House: Rail Reform ( 8 Maw 2012)

Tom Harris: I am disappointed in the statement. In the time I have been in the House, I have never heard a ministerial statement so lacking in substance. This is not a statement; it is a coincidence of ink patterns on a bit of paper. The Secretary of State says that she wants £3.5 billion of efficiency savings by 2019, but she has not given us a single way of saving one penny. Was she even in the House...
