Local Government (Sports and Leisure) (6 Dec 1989)

David Clelland: The hon. and learned Gentleman has mentioned Gateshead. I would have done so if there had been time and if I had caught your eye, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Gateshead has been successful because staff of all departments can be used when major events are taking place at the stadium. That flexibility will be lost if the order is agreed to. Flexibility is an extremely important factor, and Conservative...

Local Government (Sports and Leisure) (6 Dec 1989)

David Clelland: rose—

Opposition Day: Schools (24 Jan 1990)

David Clelland: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I seek your guidance? I understand that the normal convention of the House is that, when a Member of the House visits another Member's constituency, he should inform him in advance. It has come to my notice that the Secretary of State for Health has been in my constituency today, although he gave me no notice. He has been at the headquarters of the...

Opposition Day: Schools (24 Jan 1990)

David Clelland: My point of order is this, Mr. Speaker: is it in order for the Secretary of State for Health to visit my constituency without giving me notice to make a propaganda film to support his side of the ambulance dispute?

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (29 Jan 1990)

David Clelland: What manufacturing industry?

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (29 Jan 1990)

David Clelland: This certainly is a Bill too far. What concerns me about industrial relations legislation under this Government is, first, that there has been far too much of it and, secondly, that it rarely has anything to do with the promotion of good industrial relations. This Bill is no exception to that rule. It purports to be concerned with economic efficiency and individual freedom, but, in fact, in...

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (29 Jan 1990)

David Clelland: Exactly. However, the commissioner has had to justify her existence and salary, as we predicted. The provisions in clause 8 demonstrate how badly she has failed even to manufacture enough work to justify her existence, to say nothing of her £1·5 million budget. To avoid an embarrassing admission of wasting public money, the Government decided to help her by extending her responsibilities...

Business of the House (8 Feb 1990)

David Clelland: Although the House will welcome the news that there is to be a foreign affairs debate on the implications of improving East-West relations, may we also have a debate on the defence implications? Given the inevitability of reductions in arms procurement, we can then begin to plan a proper product conversion programme so that the skills of those who work in the industry will be preserved and so...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Feb 1990)

David Clelland: To ask the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 20 February.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Feb 1990)

David Clelland: Does the Prime Minister believe that there is any connection between the fact that homelessness increased by 45 per cent. between the end of 1986 and the end of 1988 and the fact that under her Government council house building has fallen from 111,000 per year in the 1970s to only 21,000 per year in the 1980s? Does not that show that the Government lack any concern for the needs of people at...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Arts Funding (13 Mar 1990)

David Clelland: The Minister's statement will be widely welcomed by people in the Northern region, with the possible exception of his hon. Friend the Member for Stockton, South (Mr. Devlin), whose conversion we also welcome, since originally he was in favour of a mega-region for the north. Does the Minister acknowledge the contribution made to the arts by local authorities in the area? I refer in particular...

Business of the House (10 May 1990)

David Clelland: May I join the appeals to the Leader of the House for a statement next week on working conditions at the channel tunnel? Could that statement include the involvement of the Economic League in the recruitment of labour for the project, and whether that has led to the exclusion from employment of trade union members with a history of agitating for safe working conditions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Oct 1990)

David Clelland: To ask the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 30 October.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Oct 1990)

David Clelland: In the course of her busy day, will the Prime Minister give some consideration to the by-elections pending in Bradford, Bootle and Paisley? Can she confirm that her electoral strategy will be to blame her candidates?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Germany (31 Oct 1990)

David Clelland: How can British manufacturing industry be expected to compete effectively in the former GDR against foreign competitors when 62 per cent. of our industrial work force are unskilled, compared with 38 per cent. in Germany, 21 per cent. in Italy and 20 per cent. in France? Will the Minister have a word with his right hon. Friend the Prime Minister and tell her that it is about time that,...

Local Government Finance (31 Oct 1990)

David Clelland: The Secretary of State has made much of the increases in SSAs, but does he not understand that a 19 per cent. increase in an unrealistic SSA does not result in a realistic one? Unless the SSA is allied accurately to what a council needs to spend to maintain its services, the council will be caught by the ridiculous criteria for poll tax capping. That will mean that the city of Newcastle upon...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Broadcasting Act (15 Nov 1990)

David Clelland: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the implications for the provisions of the Broadcasting Act of the merger of BSB and Sky Television.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Broadcasting Act (15 Nov 1990)

David Clelland: Is the Secretary of State aware that while the Broadcasting Act 1990, which placed great emphasis on choice, gathers dust on the shelf, thousands of families like mine around the country who chose not to have Sky but to wait for the better quality and technologically superior BSB have had choice effectively removed from them without being consulted or having their wishes considered? What...

Business of the House (15 Nov 1990)

David Clelland: Is the Leader of the House aware of the increasing incidence of stolen vehicles speeding through residential areas, one of which last night ended in the tragic death of a 10-month-old baby in my constituency? Can he promise an early statement on that problem which will include an examination of the inadequacies of the law relating to car theft and the resourcing of the police and which will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Nov 1990)

David Clelland: Following the earlier remarks of the Leader of the House about Labour party policy, may I ask whether he is aware that at the weekend the Prime Minister accused the right hon. Member for Henley (Mr. Heseltine) of pursuing Labour party policy? Could that be why the right hon. Gentleman is so much further ahead in public opinion than the right hon. Lady?
