Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: BBC World Service (10 Mar 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply, which acknowledges that the BBC World Service is a real asset on the world stage for this country. My hon. Friend is aware that the BBC World Service is now operating in an environment in which competitors are bringing on the internet and using television and modern forms of radio broadcasting such as FM and digital. Will he lend his support to the...

Professor Ross Cranston: If he will make a statement on the Millennium Commission's spending on projects in the west midlands region. [32909]

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: National Lottery (West Midlands) (16 Mar 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: My right hon. Friend will be aware that one of the projects funded is the black country urban forest, although he may not be aware that the commission is also funding the planting of trees in the Dibdale area of my constituency, which is a new, vibrant and growing community. Does he agree that the latter is precisely the sort of project that should be funded, benefiting not only local people...

Police Complaints and Discipline (23 Mar 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: As a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee, may I, too, warmly welcome my right hon. Friend's statement? Is not the answer to the point about the standard of proof raised by Conservative Members that the civil standard operates in other comparable jurisdictions and for other professional bodies perfectly satisfactorily?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Bribery of Members (30 Mar 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: If he will make a statement on his plans to make bribery of hon. Members an offence. [35149]

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Bribery of Members (30 Mar 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. However, may I press him a bit further? The legal and conceptual issues are quite simple, and have been discussed over many years—in the 1970s, in the Salmon committee's report; more recently, by the Nolan committee; and now, in the Law Commission's very clear paper on corruption. Where is the delay? Is there a problem with the Joint Committee on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Museums and Galleries (Dudley) (20 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: What measures he has taken to ensure that the new access fund supports museums and galleries in Dudley. [37408]

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Museums and Galleries (Dudley) (20 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer, and congratulate him on the moneys that have been made available. I raise two issues for the longer term. The first concerns education packs. As a matter of policy, Dudley museum does not charge, but it does have to charge for education packs, even though teachers can freely reproduce them. The other issue concerns, I am sure, other...

Orders of the Day — Bank of England Bill: Monetary Policy Committee. (20 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: If this is such a great idea, why did the right hon. Gentleman not mention it before in the House or in Committee when we discussed the matter at great length?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: The hon. Member for Witney (Mr. Woodward) is a professional spinner—that is how he made his money before 1 May. I do not know whether he wants us to judge him on the results of 1 May or on his speech today, but the latter was largely a collection of fantasies. The hon. Gentleman is also distinctly off message, because his Front-Bench colleagues were saying that there had not been a fiscal...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: First, the pound has gone up 25 per cent. but most of that increase happened under the previous Government. Secondly, the market's judgment of the change involving the Bank of England has been distinctly positive. The hon. Gentleman need only read about the long-term interest rates reported daily in the financial press to see that favourable judgment.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: That is certainly a very good argument for what the people did on 1 May when they voted us in with a massive majority. I thank the hon. Gentleman for making that point for me. In addition to taking the specific step involving the Bank of England, the Chancellor reaffirmed the inflation target in the Budget. He also elaborated once again the golden rule on Government debt, and set out the...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: The right hon. Gentleman makes the point that the notice was published just before Christmas, but that is in the nature of things. Following that, there have been extensive discussions, which are continuing, and the Bar Council has been brought into the discussions about how the final measure will be drafted. Last week, it appeared to be reasonably satisfied with the recognition in clause 43...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: It is unfortunate that the hon. Gentleman has just wandered into the Chamber. If he stays and listens to the debate, some of his questions will be answered. Let me move on to the second theme of the Bill—the promotion of enterprise. My hon. Friend the Member for Luton, South (Ms Moran) mentioned the benefits of the reduction in corporation tax for industry in her constituency. Earlier in...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: The members of Dudley chamber of commerce whom I met did not report any job losses. They intimated that there might be job losses in future, but at this stage none has been reported to me. Let me develop the theme a little further. Secondly, it transpired from my more detailed discussions with Dudley chamber of commerce that many members of the chamber had not used in the past, and were not...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: The hon. Gentleman has just wandered into the Chamber, and I was talking about the DTI helping to promote the use of particular instruments. Incidentally, one of the chamber members at the discussion said that one of his customers had recently told him about a future deal in euros. At the suggestion of this member of the chamber—who happened to be a local bank manager—the manufacturer...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: We need no lectures from the hon. Gentleman on betrayals of the trust of the British people. There has been a substantial fiscal tightening, and the hon. Member for Witney referred to a huge fiscal tightening. The only positive suggestion we have heard from Opposition Front Benchers is that somehow we should encourage saving—but that is precisely what our proposals for ISAs are designed to...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: Will the hon. Gentleman explain what particular measures of fiscal policy he is talking about? Will he also say something about time lags?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (21 Apr 1998)

Professor Ross Cranston: They want to change travel insurance.
