Orders of the Day — Tobacco Advertising Bill (11 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Does the hon. Gentleman concede that, in his report, Dr. Smee said that, in each of the four countries, the banning of advertising was followed by a fall in smoking on a scale which cannot reasonably be attributed to other factors.

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: It is a curious irony that while the House of Lords is debating the International Year of the Family, we are debating legislation that, whichever decision we make, will have real implications for the family. I shall speak in support of amendment No. 38 and the consequential amendments so persuasively advocated by the hon. Member for Exeter (Sir J. Hannam). I agree with his arguments and...

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: In Committee, I spoke to and supported a similar proposition, but, on reflection, I have come to the opinion that a morning rather than an afternoon Sunday opening provides a better balance between the social need for time off and the commercial needs of retailers to open shops when people would choose to use them. I understand the conflict between morning opening and church services, but,...

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: I speak of my constituency. With the exception of Thursday and Friday, the normal hours for almost all shops are 9 am to 5 pm or 5.30 pm. It is a shopping day of about eight hours. If the hon. Member is arguing that the nature of retailing is changing in such a way that more and more shops open 12 hours, he will have to accept that the argument for Sunday opening is weakened and is getting...

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Of course. They would, wouldn't they? We all know that anyone who wants a career in a major chain that opens seven days a week will have to be prepared to work on Sunday.

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: I agree that double time would be a very good thing, but—sadly—we know that that will not happen. As such protection is not available, some other protection is needed. The House has voted for a measure of Sunday trading. This will result in people who are employed in the retail trade having to work on Sunday. The legal protection embodied in the Bill simply will not amount to real...

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: It is eight and a half hours. Shops will be allowed to open from 10 o'clock in the morning until 6 o'clock in the evening, and people will be able to continue shopping until 6.30. That was presented as a compromise, but it was never a genuine compromise. This issue has divided the House deeply for far longer than the period of my membership. If hon. Members want a compromise that will allow...

New Clause 1: Restrictions on Sunday Opening of Large Shops (23 Feb 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Before the hon. Member makes his third point, he has said that it is wrong of those such as myself who support the compromise half-day amendment to seek to deprive Sunday shopworkers of part of their earnings. Did he not hear the hon. Member for Liverpool, Mossley Hill (Mr. Alton) say that the Home Office, on its own research that it commissioned from London Economics, had found that if the...

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Investment in Education (1 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: How do the Government justify spending £750,000 on refurbishing a four-year-old building for the Funding Agency for Schools? That works out at just under £6,000 for each of the 130 people who will work in the building, compared with only £47 in capital expenditure for each child in North Yorkshire schools. Is not it more important to get rid of outside toilets and temporary classrooms?...

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Investment in Education (1 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: The Minister justified earlier in his speech the spending of £0.75 million on the office headquarters of the Funding Agency for Schools because there should be good conditions for employees to work in. Does he believe that there should be equally good conditions for children in both grant-maintained and local authority schools?

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Community Care (1 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Minister acknowledge that changing from a formula based partly on income support payments and partly on SSAs to a formula based wholly on SSAs seriously disadvantages some authorities? In a letter to me three weeks ago, he said that such a distribution mechanism involves both winners and losers". He went on: I recognise that there are some authorities, like North Yorkshire, whose...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: South Africa (2 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he is taking to monitor whether the election in South Africa in April is free and fair.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: South Africa (2 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Does the Foreign Secretary share my concern about the withdrawal of Inkatha from the elections because people living in Inkatha areas who vote will be deemed to be African National Congress supporters and their lives may be at risk? How many polling stations will there be in the elections and is it the intention of Britain as the former colonial power, together with other countries under...

Clause 1: Amendment of the British Transport Commission Act 1949 (21 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: I spent a great deal of time last Session on the Floor of the House and also in Committee in the debates on the Railways Bill. We had 35 sittings in Committee which included many hours of debate on the future role of the British Transport police. The Minister has been asked tonight—and we have not had a satisfactory answer from him—why, throughout those lengthy debates, the Government...

Clause 1: Amendment of the British Transport Commission Act 1949 (21 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Are there proposals to allow private rail operators to appoint members of the police committee? I ask the question because of a statement in the consultation document that the Department of Transport distributed on the future of the British Transport police, which says in paragraph 28: "On the other hand, a national police force controlled by private companies and exercising all the powers...

Petition: Value Added Tax on Fuel (21 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: I rise to present a petition to the House about a matter which has enraged many British citizens: the imposition of VAT on fuel. It has enraged British citizens because the Government specifically promised in the last election campaign that they would not widen the scope of VAT. The petition reads: To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: GP Fundholders (22 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: The Minister has been able to provide me with information about the amount of money per patient that is allocated to fundholding doctors, but he says that he does not have information about the amount of money per patient that is allocated for the same services for patients of non-fundholding doctors. As he does not have the figures, how can he say that there is equal access when he cannot...

Business of the House (24 Mar 1994)

Hugh Bayley: Does the Leader of the House accept that it is not only my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mrs. Beckett) who is concerned about the 700 redundancies at the ABB carriage works, but every one of a dwindling band of hon. Members who represent manufacturing constituencies? Because of the delay in franchising, the privatisation blight on railway orders will continue. Unless the...
