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 — National Heritage: Live Music (9 Nov 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what is his policy on promoting live music.

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...

Railways (29 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I should acknowledge an interest as I am sponsored by the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers. Perhaps I should also acknowledge my paramount interest I represent the city of York. Many people claim to have railways in the blood; York has railways in its soul. People think of the minster and the city walls, but the past 150 years of York's history have been dominated by our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Army Manning and Record Offices (27 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what proposals he has to conduct a comparison of the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the services provided by the Army's manning and record offices and regimental pay offices in York, and of other Army manning and record offices and regimental pay offices, before he decides about the siting of any integrated Army personnel centre outside London.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Army Manning and Record Offices (27 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: When the Minister takes his decision, will he give due weight to the fact that already this year it has been announced that 1,200 Ministry of Defence civilian jobs in Harrogate will go, while 250 civilian jobs at the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers' workshop at Strensall have also gone? The losses come on top of a reduction from 9,500 to 5,500 in the number of Ministry of Defence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Southern Africa (26 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will increase the level of aid allocated to southern Africa in the current year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Southern Africa (26 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: The Conservative party manifesto in April said that next year's aid budget, excluding aid for eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, would reach £1,800 million. Will the 1993–94 aid budget in real terms meet that manifesto promise and will the proportion going to southern Africa be the same as in the current financial year?

The Health of the Nation (22 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Minister give way?

The Health of the Nation (22 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: If the strategy works and the health of the nation improves, will the Minister be celebrating at the Dispatch Box the fact that fewer people will be going to hospital? The fact that more and more people year after year need hospital treatment reflects, in part at least, the point made by my hon. Friends the Members for Sheffield, Brightside (Mr. Blunkett) and for Bristol, South (Ms....

The Health of the Nation (22 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: After a decade or more of a Government wedded to free market principles, I am delighted to see that Adam Smith and the "Wealth of Nations" is giving way to "The Health of the Nation". I welcome the emphasis in the White Paper on health rather than health care. The last Labour Government were committed to that emphasis. That was one of the reasons why the Black report—one of the first...

The Health of the Nation (22 Oct 1992)

Hugh Bayley: During the summer I was asked to intervene by one of my constituents whose mother was about to be discharged from a Bristol hospital. Her daughter was told that she could not be discharged until she and her daughter had paid a fee of £600 to Avon ambulance trust. Is that the type of outcome that the right hon. Lady intended when she created trusts? Did she expect me, as a Member of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: EC Presidency (15 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what are his priorities for the EC presidency.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: EC Presidency (15 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: As a first step, will the new and long overdue integrated environmental agency give a cast-iron guarantee, as other EC member states have, that our emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will be cut to the 1990 level by the year 2000, even if the American Government do not agree to do so?

British Rail (Privatisation) (14 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Will the Secretary of State acknowledge that there is already intense pride in the railways in my constituency of York and in many other constituencies? We do not need to break the railways up into regional fragments to install that pride. Given that the bus-building industry virtually collapsed after bus deregulation, what guarantees can the Secretary of State give to the 1,700 men who build...

British Rail (Privatisation) (14 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Who will pay compensation in future in such cases? Will it be the track authority or the residual BR operating authority?

Orders of the Day — Office Costs Allowance: Hedgehog Protection (14 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: My constituents are also outraged at the treatment of hedgehogs and by the same incident which provoked my hon. Friend the Member for Glanford and Scunthorpe (Mr. Morley) to present a petition. I want to present a petition from Mrs. Pat Murgatroyd, who runs a hedgehog haven in 43 Foxwood lane, York. Her petition is supported by 888 signatures from the York area. The petition protests That...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Service Standards (13 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make it his policy to ensure that none of the service standards specified in the charters published to date are relaxed or withdrawn during the lifetime of this Parliament.

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Service Standards (13 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: Does the process of continual review allow the Government to abandon or water down any commitments in the charters that they find difficult to meet? The Library's reference sheet on charters mentions the Department of Employment charter to establish minimum wages and protect them through regulation—a wages inspectorate charter. Will that remain unchanged throughout the lifetime of this...

"Health of the Nation" (8 Jul 1992)

Hugh Bayley: I have a simple question for the Secretary of State: to what extent has the Department costed these plans? Is she aware that the Northern region costed the meeting of a coronary heart disease target in the Green Paper as between £1·6 million and £2·4 million each year until the year 2000? There are many other regions, including those in Scotland and Wales. What will be the total cost of...
