Ending Violence Against Women

10.27 pm

Andrew Selous (South-West Bedfordshire) (Con): I have pleasure in presenting a petition handed to me by the Women’s Institute of the village of Heath and Reach, in my constituency, to whose members I spoke last month. It concerns the ending of violence against women, and reads as follows:

[P000269]

Protection of Playing Fields

10.29 pm

Bob Spink (Castle Point) (UKIP): I am honoured to present a petition organised by Jo Grey and other excellent community campaigners on Canvey island against the selling off of one of our secondary school fields by Essex county council so that the borough council can build houses that are not wanted and that will cause blight and harm to the wider community of Canvey island. I warmly congratulate all who signed the petition, including Dave Blackwell, who brought the petition to my attention. He is a superb fighter for the people of Canvey island, along with his independent council colleagues.

The petition states:

[P000272]

Energy Efficiency

10.31 pm

Bob Spink: I am sure the House needs no reminding of the importance of improving energy efficiency in domestic homes and businesses. This petition, which supports an electronic petition of approaching 1,000 signatures, calls on the Government to put their money where their mouth is, and to promote energy efficiency and our excellent hi-tech British manufacturing industry. How could they refuse? However, I stress that I do not promote any particular business or product and I have no personal interest in any of this.

The petition states:

[P000271]

Workstep (Blackpool)

Motion made, and Question proposed, That this House do now adjourn. —[Ms Diana R. Johnson.]

10.32 pm

Mr. Gordon Marsden (Blackpool, South) (Lab): I am delighted to welcome my hon. Friend the Member for Chatham and Aylesford (Jonathan Shaw) to his new position of Minister with responsibility for disabled people and to wish him well in that post.

Supporting people with disabilities to obtain useful and satisfying employment and to remain and, hopefully, progress in it is rightly an issue that commands great public interest and cross-party support. One such long-standing initiative has been the supported employment placement scheme, currently known as Workstep, whereby funding from Government—in this case the Department for Work and Pensions—is matched by a host employer. Among the local authorities who have taken part in this scheme has been my own, Blackpool council, which is Conservative controlled and whose adult social care and housing department has been responsible for administering it.

The factsheet from Blackpool council issued in August 2007 stated:
