Privatisation (11 May 1992)

Angela Eagle: Following overseas development questions earlier today, I must be the only Opposition Member who is quite pleased that the Minister for Overseas Development is in the other place. Any new hon. Member rising to make their first speech in the Chamber cannot help but be aware of the history and tradition that reside in it. Traditionally, a maiden speech is non-controversial, praising one's...

Orders of the Day — Prison (Liverpool, Walton) (10 Jun 1992)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree that this debate is timely, in that it is being held just days after the Minister confirmed in a letter to me that he is actively investigating the possibility of siting prison ships on the Mersey, possibly in Wallasey docks? He stated that a suitable accommodation vessel has already been identified by the Home Office and that preliminary talks about a suitable berth...

Orders of the Day — Prison (Liverpool, Walton) (10 Jun 1992)

Angela Eagle: I accept that, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I have one final question for my hon. Friend. Will he join me in demanding that the Government respect the views of local people and abandon these Dickensian plans to create an Alcatraz on the Mersey?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Diversification (30 Jun 1992)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister tell me how I should explain to workers at Cammell Laird in Wallasey the help that he is giving to eastern European countries to diversify their defence industries while there is absolutely no help for domestic defence industries? Will he also explain why, given that the peace dividend is going to all taxpayers, its results are to be visited on only a very few members of the...

Business of the House (2 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: Will the Leader of the House make time next week for the Secretary of State for Defence to come to the House to make a statement on the Government's policy on defence diversification in the light of the redundancies announced at Cammell Laird today, which affect not only the constituents of my hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Field) but my constituents?

Prayers: Special Educational Needs (3 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: You. Madam Deputy Speaker, and I are making a habit of being present at the end of debates. I seem to go under the wire just before the guillotine comes down and the Front-Bench spokesmen stand up. Perhaps I shall make it three in a row shortly. Like the hon. Member for Hertfordshire, South-West (Mr. Page), I am not an expert in this subject. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for...

Points of Order (6 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. As I made my way to Wallasey at the weekend, I perused The Spectator, and discovered that the hon. and learned Member for Perth and Kinross (Sir N. Fairbairn) had commented on almost 10 per cent. of hon. Members—that is, the female Members. He said that we are not desert island material and that we look as though we are from the fifth Kiev Stalinist...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Exporters (8 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: To ask the President of the Board of Trade what measures he proposes to assist British exporters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Exporters (8 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: I am grateful for that response. Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the existence in Britain of Stone Manganese Marine—the last remaining maker of propellers with its own foundry—is being threatened by unfair foreign competition from Poland and Korea? Is he further aware that that company is the holder of three Queen's awards to industry and that 80 per cent. of its turnover...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Sport (13 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: Will the Secretary of State acknowledge that part of his responsibility is to ensure that people have equal access and equal opportunities in sport? I speak from experience as a chess player and a cricketer. However, I was a very bad cricketer because I was never allowed to play in mixed teams. Does he agree that improving access to sporting opportunities, especially for girls and young...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Urban Waste (15 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the Government's policy on urban waste management.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Urban Waste (15 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: More than half the non-fossil fuel offset capacity is used for waste incineration, which has been shown to account for at least one quarter of United Kingdom dioxin emissions. Does the Minister agree that dioxin is an extremely dangerous chemical, whose effects on the human body pass down generations? How can he justify the Government subsidising dioxin production in that way, and the...

Prayers: "Options for Change" (Transitional Arrangements) (16 Jul 1992)

Angela Eagle: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Field) for his ingenuity in securing the debate. I also thank other hon. Members with interests on the Wirral and elsewhere for taking the time to come to the Chamber to put their case today. I want to supplement what has already been said and consider the effect that closure of the yard will have on the local community. The view is that...

The Health of the Nation (22 Oct 1992)

Angela Eagle: I crave the indulgence of the House at the beginning of my speech as I am suffering from an affliction similar to that of my hon. Friend the Member for Eccles (Miss Lestor). I only hope that my voice lasts as long as hers did. I was particularly moved by what my hon. Friend the Member for Barrow and Furness (Mr. Hutton) had to say about bereavement. Having suffered the loss of a parent, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Wages Councils (3 Nov 1992)

Angela Eagle: Given his views on wages councils, will the Minister tell the House how low he thinks it reasonable for wages to fall?

Petition: Protection and Support of Victims of Child Abuse (10 Nov 1992)

Angela Eagle: I rise to present a petition signed by some 4,420 members of the public from Wallasey and elsewhere. It states: We wish to see instigated a programme of support and counselling for the families of the victims of child abuse, That we wish to see convicted abusers of children moved from residences in the vicinity of their victims.Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House do...

Orders of the Day — Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Bill (17 Nov 1992)

Angela Eagle: The turnout in postal ballots for industrial action is much lower than occurs in workplace ballots. Does the right hon. Lady suggest that a postal ballot, with a probably much lower turnout, is democratic?

Orders of the Day — Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Bill (17 Nov 1992)

Angela Eagle: Does my hon. Friend agree with the Equal Opportunities Commission and the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, which have estimated that the abolition of the wages councils will lead directly to 25,000 job losses in the initial period simply because of the withdrawal of spending power from the economy which the depressed wages will cause?

Orders of the Day — Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Bill (17 Nov 1992)

Angela Eagle: I wish at the outset to declare an interest. I am in the process of becoming sponsored by the Confederation of Health Service Employees, a trade union for which it was my privilege to work for seven years before coming to this House. The modest sums involved in such sponsorship never go into the pocket of the hon. Member concerned. The Bill is the sixth piece of legislation since 1979...
