Public Expenditure (7 May 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I am grateful for being called so early in the new Session and I congratulate you, Madam Deputy Speaker, on your appointment. I am also grateful to the electors of York for returning me as their Member of Parliament. I pay tribute to my predecessor, with whom I had many sharp disagreements on many issues. However, in one area of policy he made his mark in the House, as I am sure hon. Members...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Regional Health Authorities (12 May 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on the future of regional health authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Regional Health Authorities (12 May 1992)

Hugh Bayley: It is odd that the Secretary of State makes no mention of the newly created regional outposts of the NHS management executive, which are assuming powers in relation to opted-out hospitals that were previously the province of regional health authorities. Unlike those authorities, regional outposts do not meet in public or have members who are accountable to the public, and they were not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Crime, North Yorkshire (14 May 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Is the Minister aware that, according to the North Yorkshire chief constable's annual reports, the number of offences in the county in 1979 was 20,000, and falling, and that last year the number of recorded offences was 50,000, and rising? Is he aware that, under the last Labour Government, in five years Labour Home Secretaries gave North Yorkshire 151 additional police officers, whereas in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: York Citizens Charter (18 May 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what discussions the Government had with York city council about its citizens charter prior to the Government's introduction of their own citizens charter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: York Citizens Charter (18 May 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Is the Minister aware that York city council was the first public authority in the country to introduce a citizens charter? Each year, when it publishes its charter—it has just published its fourth—it reports on the degree to which it met the standards laid down in the charter. Last year, it achieved a 93 per cent. success rate. The charter also spells out the action that the council...

Orders of the Day — Petition: Aung San Suu Kyi (8 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I wish to present a petition, signed by 600 people, calling for the release from house arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been held in virtual isolation for the past three years at her home in Rangoon. The petition reads: That human rights continue to be violated in Burma (Union of Myanmar) as evidenced by the house arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi and the detention of other prisoners of...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Vat (11 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has received any recent representations to make changes to value added tax rates.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Vat (11 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: As the Minister responsible for setting VAT rates, can the right hon. Gentleman tell me the current percentage rate charged on the following products: a milk chocolate digestive biscuit, a deep frozen chocolate mousse, and a Kit Kat bar? If he cannot give an answer, will he get rid of the confusion by rating all such products at the general food rate of zero?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Earth Summit (17 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the outcome of the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Earth Summit (17 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I welcomed the announcement made by the Prime Minister before he went to Rio that he would recycle empty bottles from Downing street by taking them to a bottle bank. Doubtless that will make a significant contribution to the energy-saving commitments given by the Government in Rio. But will the Secretary of State reverse his advice to local authorities that he will give no more supplementary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Relocation (30 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on his Department's policy on the relocation of departmental staff and service personnel from sites in the south to ones in the north of the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Relocation (30 Jun 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Minister pay tribute to the city of York for its long and proud history as a garrison town and its proven track record as an Army administration centre, with the regimental pay offices based there? Will he confirm that the current investigation by the Ministry of Defence into the establishment of an integrated Army personnel centre will include the city of York on the short list of...

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. (1 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I had not planned to speak on this amendment, but I want to respond to one or two of the comments of the hon. Member for Macclesfield (Mr. Winterton)—I see that he is smiling, so I must have got his constituency right. It is a peculiar tradition that we do not use people's names in the same way as anyone else would. I agree with the hon. Gentleman's comments on the fears that have been...

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. (1 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: That is a perceptive comment. North Yorkshire county council has commissioned a firm of consultants to carry out a study and is examining the option that the hon. Member for Macclesfield (Mr. Winterton) describes. However, for whatever reason, Cheshire has for some time had the benefit of being able to transfer the cost of part III accommodation from the poll tax payers' budget to the...

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. (1 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I think that my hon. Friend is right and therefore I should withdraw the comment about a month or two of benefit for North Yorkshire county council if it gets its skates on. It is not just a matter of playing with figures in the budget but of the type and quality of care that an authority is able to provide. One of the sets of data collected in the study to which I referred was a standard...

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. (1 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: When will the Government tell local authorities what additional resources they will receive? The new regime will begin in exactly nine months, but it is almost impossible for authorities to plan if they do not know what resources they will have.

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. (1 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Money is the key to care: with it people can enter care: without it, they are locked out. That was brought home to me today when I received a letter about a constituent of mine from the trade union branch of which he was a member about 20 years ago. I shall read two short extracts: Mr. Rogers is 88 years old, and until his wife died in April of this year they were both residents of the...

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. (1 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I take your point, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is necessary for public provision to be made, to ensure that residents whose charges are met at public expense will obtain the care that they need. That is extremely hard for social services departments to plan, until such time as they are aware of the Government's budgetary allocation for the social services reforms. I hope that the Secretary of...
