Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill (20 Nov 1990)

David Clelland: rose——

Opposition Day: Poll Tax (5 Dec 1990)

David Clelland: When the poll tax was first proposed, we were told that one of its objectives was to abolish the inequities of the rating system. Another objective was local accountability. No Opposition Member would disagree that there were inequities and anomalies under the old domestic rating system and that it would be good to abolish those inequities and anomalies. That is precisely what the next Labour...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Right to Buy (12 Dec 1990)

David Clelland: Is the Minister aware that his reply demonstrates that, despite recent events, nothing has changed and that we are being subjected to the same old claptrap from the Dispatch Box? Is he further aware that, contrary to the recently expressed opinions of the Minister for Housing and Planning, local authorities' ability to use the receipts from council house sales to provide additional council...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 1991)

David Clelland: Does the Prime Minister recall that many of our hostages, who have now returned from Iraq, spoke of the friendliness and helpfulness of the ordinary Iraqi citizens during their period of entrapment? Will he confirm that this war is against Saddam Hussein and his hencemen, not against ordinary families in Iraq? Does he further agree that ordinary Iraqi nationals, living in this country, many...

Local Government Finance (England) (17 Jan 1991)

David Clelland: The Secretary of State must be aware that it will be widely recognised throughout the country that his announcement is a further vain attempt to buy votes for the Tory party using public money. It appears from his statement that he does not want to buy any votes from Newcastle upon Tyne. Contrary to his final comments, the people of Newcastle will not be able to enjoy the services that charge...

Oral Answers to Questions — Newcastle upon Tyne Council (30 Jan 1991)

David Clelland: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what assessment he has made of the effects on the services of Newcastle upon Tyne city council following the financial decisions he has taken for the year 1991–92.

Oral Answers to Questions — Newcastle upon Tyne Council (30 Jan 1991)

David Clelland: Is the Minister aware that the standard spending assessment means little for the realistic budgets of local authorities? I am pleased that he nods in agreement with that comment. Is he aware that the city of Newcastle upon Tyne is facing £12·5 million in cuts? Does he imagine that such a sum can be found by making savings on paper clips? If not, can he name one area of the council's...

Opposition Day: Recession in Industry (30 Jan 1991)

David Clelland: Does that mean that the right hon. Gentleman did not speak to anyone from Nissan or Komatsu who regularly acknowledge the contribution made by the former Tyne and Wear county council when reaching their decision to invest in that area?

Opposition Day: Poll Tax (19 Feb 1991)

David Clelland: Will. the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day: Poll Tax (19 Feb 1991)

David Clelland: I can confirm that the Government are in a mess with regard to the poll tax. Is my hon. Friend aware that the Northumbria police authority met this morning and it has had to cut its budget, as a result of the Government's poll tax policy, by £2·5 million which is equivalent to 116 police officers at a time when there is a crying need for more police officers—and that from a Government who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Mar 1991)

David Clelland: Although I fully appreciate the need to review defence procurement policy following the Gulf conflict, does the Prime Minister agree that that would affect only the size of the order for main battle tanks, not necessarily the manufacturer which will provide them? Will he therefore have a word with the Secretary of State for Defence with a view to making an early announcement that the order...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Community Charge (27 Mar 1991)

David Clelland: Does the Minister agree that one good reason for abolishing the poll tax is the answer that the Secretary of State gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-East (Mr. Turner) yesterday when he said that the way in which other local electors could achieve the zero rate of poll tax now achieved in Wandsworth would be to vote Conservative? Is not that, by implication, saying to...

Business of the House (25 Apr 1991)

David Clelland: Will the Leader of the House confirm that the Cabinet has discussed the replacement for the Chieftain tank, and that the Challenger 2 tank will be the preferred replacement? Will there be an announcement on that next week, or is he going to tell us that, as Leader of the House, he does not know?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Arms Trading (30 Apr 1991)

David Clelland: Is the Minister aware that our trade in arms will be severely and adversely affected if he does not order Challenger 2, as it is now clear that there are friendly nations who are interested in the equipment and are waiting to see what the British Government are going to do? Will he stop the unnecessary dithering and delay over the issue and tell us what his intentions are now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jun 1991)

David Clelland: Did the Prime Minister see the recent "Panorama" programme entitled, "Scuppering British Shipbuilders", which demonstrated how the Government have killed off merchant shipbuilding in Britain? Is he aware that unless the right decision is made about Challenger 2, "Panorama" will soon be making another programme about the killing off of the British tank manufacturing industry? Will he ensure...

Business of the House (6 Jun 1991)

David Clelland: The Leader of the House may be aware that the Minister of State for Defence Procurement gave the clear impression on Tuesday, during defence Questions, that the long-awaited and long-overdue decision on the Challenger 2 tank would be made before the end of the month. Is the Leader of the House aware that this morning the Ministry of Defence was already back-tracking on the assurance and is...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance and Valuation Bill: Valuation of Domestic Properties (12 Jun 1991)

David Clelland: I follow the logic of the argument about registering empty properties, but does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is also necessary to outline why the properties are empty? Would it not be a cruel deception to tell the homeless, as Conservative Members often do, that properties are standing empty waiting for someone to move in? We know that the majority of empty properties, especially those in...
