Rate Support Grants Bill: Adjustments of Distribution of Block Grant (21 Jul 1986)

David Clelland: Local authorities are entitled to be given reasons for decisions that affect their budget and services. The changes made to local government finance by this Government—and they have been fast and furious over the past few years — often mean that local authorities are caught out and are therefore disadvantaged through no fault of their own. That is what happened to the city of Newcastle...

Rate Support Grants Bill: Adjustments of Distribution of Block Grant (21 Jul 1986)

David Clelland: How many authorities asked for reasons why they were turned down?

Royal Ordnance plc (24 Jul 1986)

David Clelland: I shall resist the temptation to take issue with my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey) about the relative merits of the work forces in Leeds and Newcastle. I assure him that, although my constituents work for a private company, they are nevertheless a highly skilled work force —[HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] I can do without the embarrassment of being supported by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Oct 1986)

David Clelland: Has the Prime Minister yet had time to read the article in The Observer on Sunday? Are the accusations made in it true, and, if so, is that one reason why some civil servants are so relucant to appear before the Select Committee on Defence?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Oct 1986)

David Clelland: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Oct 1986)

David Clelland: I assumed that I had chosen my words very carefully. I said that the article contained accusations that the Prime Minister had lied. I was not accusing the Prime Minister of lying, but merely quoting the article.

Orders of the Day — Public Order Bill: Meaning of "racial Hatred" (4 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: While I also welcome the amendments as a major step forward in protecting minorities from discrimination, I wonder whether there is an anomaly in one of the amendments which may have been overlooked, or whether I am misinterpreting what I am reading. Lords amendment No. 7(2) states: An offence under this section may he committed in a public or a private place, except that no offence is...

Orders of the Day — Education and Family Poverty (13 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: It is appropriate that much should have been said today about education because this is an important aspect of life, but I shall concentrate on another important aspect. My hon. Friend the Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Meacher) will shortly refer to the problems of family poverty, and nowhere does that manifest itself more than in housing. I listened carefully to the Gracious Speech and, like...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Privatisation (19 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: Is the contracting out of local services likely to have the same effect as the contracting out of bus services to private companies, which has created chaos in public transport, and for which the right hon. Gentleman was responsible?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Leicestershire (Budget Allocation) (25 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: Has the RAWP process not become descredited under this Government to such an extent that, in the northern region and Newcastle—[HON. MEMBERS: "What has this to do with Leicestershire?"] I am talking about the RAWP process. No doubt the same conditions apply in Newcastle as in Leicestershire. [HON. MEMBERS: "The question is about Leicestershire."] As in Leicestershire, resources for...

David Clelland: rose——

Opposition Day: Bus Deregulation (26 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: In reply to a question that I asked the Secretary of State for the Environment only the other day, he told me that, instead of people queuing for buses, buses were queuing for people. Surely the hon. Gentleman has it wrong.

Opposition Day: Bus Deregulation (26 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: Bus services all over the country are in chaos, but the situation on Tyneside is comparatively worse due to the abolition of the county council, which created and developed one of the finest integrated public transport systems in the world. The system was built by a Labour-controlled council but it was ultimately supported by political parties and Governments of all persuasions. The Tyne and...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill (27 Nov 1986)

David Clelland: Does the Home Secretary agree that a person who is arrested, charged with a serious crime and held in prison for a considerable period and who suffers from severe mental stress to the extent that he is under permanent psychiatric supervision but is subsequently found to be innocent of any crime is also a victim of crime? Does the Home Secretary agree that there is no provision in the Bill to...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Jan 1987)

David Clelland: This Bill says as much about the Government's apparent conception of the functions of Parliament in passing legislation as it does about the web of complications which now form the system of local government finance. The Government appear to hold the view that legislation and the introduction of law is almost entirely about the imposition of the prejudices of Ministers on individuals and...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Jan 1987)

David Clelland: I am pursuing an argument which outlines the Government's hypocrisy and double standards. Later in my speech I shall tell the hon. Gentleman how the Bill itself will cause considerable chaos in some local authorities. Far from being a protector of the law, the Tory party manipulates, uses and abuses the law in order to pursue its own narrow political prejudices and as a weapon against its...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Jan 1987)

David Clelland: The date was 24 November 1986, two months after the Secretary of State, as he told us this afternoon, was aware of the problems in the legislation. My hon. Friends and I put the case clearly and forcefully, to the Minister, saying that his proposals would mean a shortfall in excess of £10 million in Gateshead's finances as a result of the special accounting arrangements of the previous...

Opposition Day: Government Economic Policies (20 Jan 1987)

David Clelland: Will the Chancellor care to tell the House when was the last time, before the Government came to office, riots occurred in the inner-city streets?
