Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Live Music (9 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Does the Minister accept that the provision of small venues is particularly important as a seedbed for new musical talent? Is it not an absurd anomaly that section 182 of the Licensing Act 1964 requires a public entertainment licence where more than two live musicians gather at a venue such as a public house, but not when a discotheque is held there or, worse still, when muzak is played on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Homelessness (11 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Secretary of State consider increasing his grants to voluntary bodies? I have just received a copy of the annual report of the Peasholme centre, a York charity which provides a hostel for single homeless people. In the past 12 months, its number of clients in York has increased by 60 per cent. to 445. Of those, three out of five—some 267 clients—were found to have slept rough at...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Child Labour (16 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Is the Minister aware that an increase in the volume of exports of Colombian coal is forcing more and more people in Colombia to buy from the domestic market serviced by small mines? According to a recent statement by the Anti-Slavery Society for the Protection of Human Rights, 900 of those small mines employ children, some as young as five years old. Does the Minister accept that the...

Opposition Day: Disabled Persons (16 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I present a petition signed by my constituent, Maureen Brownbridge, and 240 other residents of York and neighbouring areas. The petition is sponsored by Mencap, and seeks a change in the law to outlaw discrimination on the basis of people's disabilities —in the same way that other legislation prohibits discrimination on the grounds of gender or race. The petition reads as follows: To the...

Prayers: Workfare (20 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. May I, through you, ask for a message to be sent to Ministers to let them know how seriously the announced job losses are taken in my constituency, which could be absolutely devastated by job cuts of that magnitude? Yesterday when I told Roger Freeman—[Interruption.]—who was in York, that there could be hundreds of job losses—

Prayers: Workfare (20 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I apologise, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am concerned because while the Government yesterday morning described rail job losses on that scale as bunkum, the announcement of those redundancies was made in the evening. It is surprising that a Minister has not explained why such a change occurred in the course of just six hours. As my hon. Friend the Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner) said, there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Railway Manufacture (23 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I welcome that change. The Government are welcome to plunder the Labour party manifesto for many more of our proposals. Will the Secretary of State ensure that British Rail has the revenue to pay the leasing costs? Will he specifically seek to obtain the Chancellor of the Exchequer's approval to reverse the £40 million cut in British Rail's finances announced in the autumn statement the week...

Public Service (26 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster go one stage further in the bipartisan spirit displayed in the Chamber this afternoon? Will he pay tribute to the first public authority in Britain to introduce a citizens charter? York city council has now operated its charter for five years. Each year, it has done what the right hon. Gentleman did yesterday—produce an annual report on the...

Public Service (26 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: We were promised quality rather than quantity from the Conservative side tonight, but we seem to have had a fair amount of quantity from the hon. Member for City of Chester (Mr. Brandreth). I was glad to see "The Citizen's Charter—First report: 1992" yesterday. One of my first contributions in the House after being elected in April was a call for the Government to follow York city...

Oral Answers to Questions — Lord Chancellor's Department: York Crown Court (30 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: What reassurance can the Minister give a constituent about whom have written to his Department? She was attacked by a man and had to spend 46 weeks living with him at large in the community, as he was remanded on bail between the date of committal and the date of the trial, at which he was found guilty. Will the Minister take action in the interim, before building a new court, to look for...

Employment: Rail Privatisation (30 Nov 1992)

It reads: To the Honourable the Commons of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.The Humble Petition...

Hugh Bayley: Will the Secretary of State pay tribute to the work force and management of ABB Transportation Ltd. in York, which built the magnificent modern Networker trains that are used on the north Kent line? Is he aware that the company has invested many millions of pounds in its factory in the expectation of orders from British Rail, but is now running at little more than two thirds of capacity?...

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Rail Privatisation (12 Jan 1993)

Hugh Bayley: First, I should remind the House that I am sponsored by the rail union RMT. I wish to focus on something that the Secretary of State has stressed throughout the debate on rail privatisation, ever since the publication of the White Paper some months ago—his view that safety is paramount. If safety is his paramount consideration, a good test of whether privatisation will be a success should...
