Local Government Services (16 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: I do not think that it was Labour controlled when rates existed. It was Conservative controlled at that time, as it was during the period of the poll tax.

Local Government Services (16 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the best test would be to ask elderly people and allow them to choose whether to go into the private or public sector? Should there not be a level playing field so that the same rules for the financing the care of the elderly in residential homes apply to both sectors? Does he agree with the Select Committee on Health's conclusion that the present rules...

Local Government Services (16 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: indicated dissent.

Local Government Services (16 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Is not it wrong for the council, the Government or anyone other than the elderly person and his family to decide whether one provision is better than another? Does the hon. Gentleman agree with my earlier point, that it should be for the elderly person himself or herself, with the support of the family, to choose where to go, and that there should be a diverse range of provision from which to...

Local Government Services (16 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Local Government Services (16 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his generosity in giving way three times. I wish that he would not cloak his argument in spurious attacks on trade unions, and I wish that he would stick to the point—the welfare of elderly people. Before I came to the House, I was a health economist. I carried out a survey in a Conservative-controlled county council of care for the elderly in private sector...

Petition: Rail Privatisation (14 Apr 1993)

Hugh Bayley: I present a petition that expresses the grave concern of many of my constituents in the city of York and in many other places about the horrendous threat to jobs posed by rail privatisation. The petition reads as follows: To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. The Humble Petition of residents of the City of York and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Unemployment (15 Mar 1993)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what percentage of his Department's budget in 1992–93 can be accounted for by unemployment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Unemployment (15 Mar 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Does the Minister accept that that amounts to billions and billions of pounds a year, and that that goes a long way to explain why the proportion of national wealth taken in taxation by the Conservative Government now is higher than the proportion taken by the Labour Government in 1979? Will he guarantee that the Government will try to cut that sum—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"]—by reducing the...

Council Tax Benefit (10 Mar 1993)

Hugh Bayley: (seated and covered): On a point of order, Deputy Speaker. For the previous two votes, I heard no announcement of the numbers voting. On one vote, I noticed two hon. Members—the hon. Member for Kettering (Mr. Freeman) and the right hon. Member for Mole Valley (Mr. Baker)—voting both Aye and No. Did the Clerks count the No votes on both sides of the Chamber? You, Mr. Deputy Speaker, could...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Standard Spending Assessment (24 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the standard spending assessment for the city of York.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Standard Spending Assessment (24 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Does the Minister accept that the increase in SSA for York is based on the increase in population, which the census revealed, of 2·1 per cent., leaving 0 per cent.—not even the rate of inflation—for services? Does he accept that if York city council even spent up to the capping limit, it would have to cut its services by £1·9 million? District councils as well as councils in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Standard Spending Assessment (24 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: How does the Minister justify such cuts to my city council?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: National Audit Office (22 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission by how much the National Audit Office has increased in real terms the resources devoted to measuring the outcomes achieved by Government services.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: National Audit Office (22 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for that reply. However, I am talking not just about value for money or efficiency but about effectiveness. As Government policy is moving towards an audit of policy in terms of quality and not just quantity of service provided, should we not be looking at the effectiveness of surgeons' operations in the national health service-that is, whether they make...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Compensation (15 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many charters contain provisions for compensation to be paid to members of the public.

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Compensation (15 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Minister give a firm guarantee that all the provisions of the BR passengers charter will apply to private sector train operators if the Government go ahead with privatisation, or will the private sector be let off the hook?

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill (2 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: Let me say at the outset that I am sponsored by the rail union, the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers, but I speak in the interests of my constituents in York. A number of towns around the country are great rail centres but few, if any, are as vulnerable to the proposals in the Bill as my constituency: 5,000 of the 50,000 people in the local economy work for the railways....

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill (2 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: I thank the Minister sincerely for that undertaking. At a weekend meeting with the managing director, I was told that the problem will start not in May next year, but that he will have to start laying people off in six months' time. If the orders do not come through now, it will be too late to keep the factory going and the work force together to build the trains that are needed. And if they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Feb 1993)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Tuesday 2 February.
