The highest standards are needed for patients in hospitals....

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Agricultural Land (6 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: I must express some disappointment with that answer. Will my hon. Friend tell me whether the 1976 guidelines are under consideration, whether she is having discussions with the Department of the Environment on this issue, and whether sufficient priority is being given to the problems of small businesses in rural areas and the extent to which it will be possible to improve the guidelines in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Westland plc (3 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: Will my hon. Friend note that in article 6 of the text that has been presented to the House the expression "European Assembly" will be changed, by treaty, to "European Parliament" for the first time, and that the words in co-operation with the European Parliament are used rather than the present words after consulting the European Assembly".

Orders of the Day — Airports Bill: Business of the House (27 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: Will the hon. Gentleman admit that the matter at issue here is prosperity for the consumer in relation to airport policy? Everything he says is based on a Socialist doctrine, but what matters to the consumer is the value he gets for his money. This Bill provides an opportunity for people at local authority and airports authority level to get something that represents value for money.

Orders of the Day — Airports Bill: Business of the House (27 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: The laws of competition apply equally to an airports policy as they apply to anything else, and that is as a result of the treaty of Rome. If the hon. Gentleman does not know that, he has not studied the Bill or its implications.

Orders of the Day — Airports Bill: Business of the House (27 Jan 1986)

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: The manner in which television and broadcasting is being misused, with sexual abuse and violence being portrayed, is at the heart of the Bill. The guidelines laid down by the broadcasting authorities, to which my hon. Friend the Minister referred. have not been properly adhered to. In a brief intervention, I mentioned one of the guidelines set out in the IBA's code, which is that Dramatic...

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: I think that I get the drift of what my hon. Friend is saying, which seems to be that he is not sure, at least at this stage, that this sort of legislation is required to deal with matters affecting the broadcasting authorities. The code includes reference to, for example, the gratuitous exploitation of sadistic or other perverted practices". I hope my hon. Friend will accept that what was on...

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman is making some ridiculous allegations. He clearly has not read the Bill and the provision which clearly states: Proceedings for an offence under this section … shall not be instituted except by or with the consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions. If the hon. Gentleman genuinely believes that the Director of Public Prosecutions would take action in the instance...

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (Protection of Children, Etc.) (Amendment) Bill (24 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend recall that in a publication entitled "The Portrayal of Violence in Television Programmes", published by the BBC in 1983, the matter of desensitisation was examined? It is clear that what causes problems is not only what he described as the drip, drip effect, but the acute and deliberate acts of violence portrayed on television, and those problems have to be addressed. The...
