ABB Transportation Ltd. (Redundancies) (8 Jun 1993)

Hugh Bayley: The redundancies were at the company's York, Derby and Crewe works. Those shocking redundancies are the direct result of an explosive mixture of two Government policies—the cut in rail investment to the lowest level in real terms since 1948 and the hiatus caused by rail privatisation. The redundancies are not an unlucky accident; they have not come out of the blue. I have been warning...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: English Tourist Board (Redundancies) (14 Jun 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Given the disastrous state of the balance of payments, would it not make sense for the Government to put more resources into promoting tourism in Britain, to encourage our own citizens and citizens from abroad to go on holiday in our country? That would help our balance of payments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Select Committees (Staff) (14 Jun 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that it would be good for the staff of the National Audit Office regularly to be seconded to departmental Select Committees so that they would see how those Committees and the Public Accounts Committee complement each other in their work? On how many occasions, with the exception of the Defence Select Committee, have professional members of the staff of the...

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what areas of welfare spending he has excluded from his review of public expenditure.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Public Expenditure Review (17 Jun 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Millions of people are concerned about the review and the Government should set out its terms of reference and scope. Given the Chief Secretary's meeting with the Prime Minister to rewrite invalidity benefit, will he confirm that the Government intend to exclude those who suffer from progressive diseases—for example, multiple sclerosis—and heart patients who are unable to walk on the...

Hugh Bayley: Is the Secretary of State aware that there have already been 532 casualties of railways privatisation, in terms of the number of jobs lost at the York carriage works because of lack of orders, and a further 364 redundancies at other Asea Brown Boveri factories around the country? Is he further aware that ABB is the last surviving rail company in Britain which manufactures railway bodyshells,...

Orders of the Day — Petition: Railway Jobs (York) (28 Jun 1993)

Hugh Bayley: At Question Time today, I raised the subject of the 532 recently announced redundancies at Asea Boveri Brown Transportation's York carriage works and a further 364 redundancies at the company's other works in Crewe and Derby. The redundancies are clearly a disaster for the individual workers and their families and are also a severe blow to York's economy and to the British balance of...

Orders of the Day — Petition: Railway Jobs (York) (28 Jun 1993)

Hugh Bayley: I welcome that intervention by the hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Mr. Wolfson) and I absolutely concur with him. It is not just a Labour Member like me from a northern manufacturing constituency who believes that the order for Network SouthEast trains needs to be placed, and placed now. That view is shared by Conservative Members who represent constituencies in Kent and other counties served by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Jul 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Is the Prime Minister aware that ABB Transportation Ltd. is the last surviving company manufacturing railway carriage body shells in Britain and that it recently announced 532 redundancies among the employees at its York works and a further 364 at Crewe and Derby?

Hugh Bayley: I beg leave to present a petition against the removal by the Government of the right to receive pension and benefit payments at local sub-post offices. The petition was collected by sub-postmasters and postmistresses and by pensioners and claimants in York, to whom I pay tribute. It is signed by county councillor Janet Lucker, of Clifton Dale, York, and by L. W. Quinn, the secretary of York...

Hugh Bayley: rose—

National Health Service (Management) (21 Oct 1993)

Hugh Bayley: How can it possibly be decentralisation to concentrate power in fewer regions which are directly accountable to the management executive and do not meet in public? I asked the Secretary of State a question last year about the future of the regional health authorities, and she said: The role of the regions will remain as it is".—[Official Report, 12 May 1992; Vol. 207, c. 486.] Was the...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill: General Duties of the Secretary of State and the Regulator (1 Nov 1993)

Hugh Bayley: My hon. Friend knows that Opposition Members tabled an amendment in Committee that sought to write into the Bill guarantees on each of the Health and Safety Executive's 37 recommendations to the Government. Is he aware that the Minister urged Conservative Members to defeat that amendment, so that it would not form part of the Bill?

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill: General Duties of the Secretary of State and the Regulator (1 Nov 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Clause 4, to which the amendments relate, deals with the Secretary of State's powers, and I am pleased to see him back in the Chamber. I should like him to deal with a point raised in paragraph (a) in Lords amendment No. 2, which instructs the regulator to take note of the Secretary of State's guidance. Precisely what guidance will the Secretary of State give the regulator about the need to...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill: General Duties of the Franchising Director (1 Nov 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Is not new rolling stock the one thing that would turn misery into joy on the line to Southend? Has the hon. Gentleman any idea whether privatisation would make it more or less likely that the commuters on his line would benefit in that way as people in Kent and other parts of Network SouthEast have recently been fortunate enough to do?
