Points of Order (2 Dec 1992)

Angela Eagle: Further to the application under Standing Order No. 20 by my hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Field), while I appreciate and respect your decision, Madam Speaker, would it be in order for me to ask you to look favourably on an application for an Adjournment debate on that extremely important issue given that the Speaker can choose one subject for an Adjournment debate a week?

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Patients Charter (23 Nov 1992)

Angela Eagle: I thank the Minister for that response. Does he agree that the patients charter is now regarded by most people as nothing short of a sick joke, given that waiting lists are rising again and cuts in expenditure on the health service mean that services are being denied and cut despite the glossy promises in what is now a sham and a pointless, useless waste of time?

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...

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

Angela Eagle: I am exploring the difference between the Conservative party's treatment of the voluntary regulation of City fraud and the over-regulation of trade unions. Is that in order? I should like your advice.

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

Angela Eagle: I hope that I have made my point about the Government's different treatment of different parts of our society. The extent of the Government's bias against trade unions and the hollow nature of their rhetoric about freedom is summed up by the fact that virtually the only right that the Government have given working people in the past 13 years is the right to take action against their trade...

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: 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?

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...

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?

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...

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...

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...

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 — 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...

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...

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...
