Welfare State (27 Jun 1983)

Stuart Bell: I am most grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, for calling me so early in this Session in such an august debate as this one on the Gracious Speech. I was told before I entered the House that it was customary for a new Member to be congratulated on his maiden speech. Senior colleagues informed me that I was unlikely to catch your eye, Mr. Speaker for the next year. While I am looking forward to the...

Welfare State (27 Jun 1983)

Stuart Bell: I actually learnt shorthand at Pitmans College in Southampton Row, where I reached a speed of 150 words a minute. My ambitions then changed with my youthfulness and I took up a different career. I often regret that I did not continue with that ambition because, had I done so, I would have seen and listened to the great debates on the Suez and on the Falkland Islands crisis. I could have...

Regional Industrial Policy (22 Jul 1983)

Stuart Bell: I wish, in the tradition of the House and with some genuine admiration, to congratulate the hon. Member for Bradford, North (Mr. Lawler) on his maiden speech after what has been a hectic week in Parliament. I congratulate him on his composure, the way in which he put forward his views, the way in which he referred to the Labour candidate in the election and on the ultimate hope and wish with...

Steel Council (26 Jul 1983)

Stuart Bell: I agree with one Government Member that the Secretary of State has adopted a more vigorous approach over steel than his predecessor, who spread uncertainty and anxiety throughout Redcar and Teesside, where many of my constituents work in the steel industry. Can the Secretary of State deny a story in today's newspapers that, notwithstanding the agreements reached yesterday, about 6,000 further...

Steel Council (26 Jul 1983)

Stuart Bell: He may have said it, but I should like it confirmed. I understand that the Commission will conduct a closer investigation of pricing policy, but is the Secretary of State saying that the Commission, or Council, is now prepared to adopt a more vigorous approach to the dumping of steel products in Europe? Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that such matters are of great interest to my...

Public Expenditure (27 Jul 1983)

Stuart Bell: Will the Chief Secretary look at class IX on the reductions in cash limits for the Home Office? Will he give an assurance that the cut of about £7 million in the prison service will not add to the tension in our prison service and its difficulties in accommodating too many prisoners in our gaols? Will he also give an assurance that the cuts affecting the treatment of offenders will not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Solicitors and Barristers (24 Oct 1983)

Stuart Bell: I appreciate the brevity of the right hon. and learned Gentleman's answer but if the Government are as determined as they say they are to attack the problem of restrictive practices and to protect the interests of the consumer, should he not direct his attention to the fusion of the legal professions in the interests of the consumer, to the detriment of restrictive practices and to the...

Lebanon (24 Oct 1983)

Stuart Bell: A family of constituents whose son is at present in Beirut have expressed great concern at the situation in Lebanon. I am sure that they will note that a senior representative is shortly to visit Beirut. Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman give an assurance that there has already been an urgent review of security at the base and of the accommodation of our contingent with a view to...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism Bill (24 Oct 1983)

Stuart Bell: I say with the utmost respect to the Minister that he has not answered the question about reasonable suspicion. Is he attributing to that a subjective reasonable suspicion or an objective reasonable suspicion? He is introducing a new concept of law into our system. Can the Minister answer my hon. Friend?

Radioactive Wastes (25 Oct 1983)

Stuart Bell: May I say, as a Member of Parliament in Cleveland, that we welcome the right hon. Gentleman's statement that the safety of the public will be paramount? However, is it not the perception of that safety that is paramount? A constituent of my hon. Friend the Member for Stockton, North (Mr. Cook) said that if this waste is deposited 400 ft below his house it will be like living above a nuclear...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Conservation and Environmental Protection (26 Oct 1983)

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill (7 Nov 1983)

Stuart Bell: Those who successfully fought the general election and met many of their constituents face to face on their doorsteps understand the widespread desire — after four years of Tory Government — that we should fight street crime, burglary and offences against the person. When the then Home Secretary introduced the previous Bill, he declared with some pride that there were 9,000 more police...

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill (7 Nov 1983)

Stuart Bell: In 1610 John Donne said: Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee. A person whose liberty is diminished in any way is a loser in our society. Those of us who believe in an extension rather than in a diminution of civil rights will be discouraged by the Home Secretary's persistence with those...

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill (7 Nov 1983)
