Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Strategic Defence Review (25 Mar 1998)

Ms Judith Church: I know that the Secretary of State shares my view that ridding the world of the scourge of land mines will be a crucial contribution to international development objectives. Does she agree that those objectives will be best achieved if there is a co-ordinated strategy with other Departments? Will she pursue that matter with other Ministers?

Health Services (London) (20 Jun 1997)

Ms Judith Church: I join my hon. Friends the Members for Ilford, South (Mr. Gapes) and for Hornchurch (Mr. Cryer) in very much welcoming the review. My constituents in Dagenham are desperately concerned about the future of Oldchurch hospital. The Secretary of State will know that currently, the emergency services unit at Harold Wood is closed and that Oldchurch is dealing with the whole population. I hope...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Breast Cancer (18 Feb 1997)

Ms Judith Church: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on breast cancer mortality rates in (a) Britain and (b) other European Union countries. [14729]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Breast Cancer (18 Feb 1997)

Ms Judith Church: I thank the Minister for his answer. While we welcome some of the modest improvements that have been made, 35 women a day—13,000 a year—die from breast cancer. Those are not cold statistics; people's lives are being adversely affected, families are being destroyed, and young children are being left without mothers. Does the Minister accept that there are huge regional variations in how...

Ms Judith Church: To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assessment he has made of the advantages of introducing the draft code of practice for fireworks being drawn up by trading standards officers. [36072]

Oral Answers to Questions — Fireworks (17 Jul 1996)

Ms Judith Church: I thank the Minister for that answer. As a former health and safety inspector and a mother of two young sons, I am horrified by the increase in firework accidents which has followed the Government's deregulation of import controls since 1994. What plans has the Minister to control specific dangerous fireworks, such as aerial shells, which have already claimed one life, before November this year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Gas Suppliers (15 May 1996)

Ms Judith Church: To ask the President of the Board of Trade what discussions his Department has had with gas companies about the methods they have used to persuade consumers to switch their custom from British Gas. [28379]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Gas Suppliers (15 May 1996)

Ms Judith Church: I thank the Minister for his answer and for the answers that he gave to my hon. Friends the Members for Plymouth, Devonport (Mr. Jamieson) and for Renfrew, West and Inverclyde (Mr. Graham). Will he give an undertaking that, where there have been proven instances of mis-selling of gas by gas companies which have not been fit and proper, compensation will be made available to the consumers who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Burundi (8 May 1996)

Ms Judith Church: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with his UN partners regarding the current situation in Burundi. [27199]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Burundi (8 May 1996)

Ms Judith Church: I thank the Minister for his answer. Will he assure the House that he is aware that the situation in Burundi is worsening daily, that hundreds of people are being killed every month in genocidal conflict and that the Secretary-General is warning the UN Security Council that it could degenerate into genocidal war? What specific steps are the British Government urging should be taken not only...

Orders of the Day — Civil Service Pension Schemes (7 May 1996)

Ms Judith Church: What criteria will be used in determining who will administer the pension scheme in the future? On what criteria will the Minister judge the bids?

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations, etc) Bill (18 Apr 1996)

Ms Judith Church: I apologise to the House and to the Secretary of State for missing his speech this afternoon, but I was detained on constituency business. Having learnt of the ill health of the hon. Member for Newry and Armagh (Mr. Mallon), I send my best wishes to him, and hope that he will make a speedy return to us. I am sure that the whole House will wish to join me in that. We should acknowledge...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations, etc) Bill (18 Apr 1996)

Ms Judith Church: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman asked me that. No doubt his question could form the basis of a lengthy debate—but you will be pleased to learn, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that I have no intention of allowing that to happen. I know that there is no quick fix, but, given the rate of progress in the House before our party developed strategies to increase the representation of women, it would take...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations, etc) Bill (18 Apr 1996)

Ms Judith Church: That is a difficult issue. Anyone wishing to gain sponsorship from Emily's List must make that commitment, but, as the hon. Gentleman must know, that is not the only method that Labour has used to increase the representation of women. For a long time, organisations such as the Northern Ireland Women's European Platform and the Downtown Women's Centre have struggled to deal with the problem...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations, etc) Bill (18 Apr 1996)

Ms Judith Church: When a new system is introduced, somebody has to be the guinea pig. The difficulty is that none of the existing electoral systems, which were clearly considered by the Government, suited the purpose of the forum. Perhaps the Minister will want to speak about that. "Guinea pigs" is not exactly the right term for the proposed system, which will, I hope, address many concerns. Of course it will...

Orders of the Day — Broadcasting Bill [Lords] (16 Apr 1996)

Ms Judith Church: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government have wasted an opportunity to give an important British industry a lead in the world in important new technology? Would not it be wonderful if the one decent legacy that the Government were to leave in their tottering last days was a decent Broadcasting Bill?
