Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Social Security and the Welfare State (20 Jul 1993)

Angela Eagle: Does the Secretary of State really believe that the redistribution of income from the poor to the rich, which has been such a feature of his Government's period in office, is tedious?

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Social Security and the Welfare State (20 Jul 1993)

Angela Eagle: What about low wages?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Democratic Elections (14 Jul 1993)

Angela Eagle: Is the Minister aware of the increasingly dangerous situation in Cambodia following its elections, particularly the gains of influence and territory being made by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge? Is it not disgraceful that the western powers have included that appalling organisation in the so-called peace effort and allowed it to make gains which bring the probability of another year zero even...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Free Dental Treatment (6 Jul 1993)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on the future of the rules governing free dental treatment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Free Dental Treatment (6 Jul 1993)

Angela Eagle: Will the Minister give an assurance that the Government have no intention whatever of removing from pregnant women and nursing mothers the current entitlement to free dental health care?

Oral Answers to Questions — Lord Chancellor's Department: Legal Aid (5 Jul 1993)

Angela Eagle: What is the Minister's opinion of the fact that when Mr. Asil Nadir fled bail, he left behind a legal aid bill of £1 million which has to be footed by the British taxpayer, although Mr. Nadir is clearly not short of money? Will the Government consider examining the loopholes in the legal aid system to prevent such outrages happening again?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Works Councils (29 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: Why is any idea of co-operation in the workplace anathema to the Conservative party? Surely productivity and morale will improve if the work force is not subject to authoritarian rules and macho management. Why do the Government always oppose, for spurious cost reasons, proposals designed to secure co-operation between the work force and management and to ensure that workers have positive...

Orders of the Day — Members' Interests (28 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: The hon. Member for Faversham (Sir R. Moate) has just made an interesting speech, which I suspect points towards a move to statutory control and away from self-regulation. Nevertheless, I welcome the report. It sticks firmly to the principle of self-regulation. I suspect that at this stage we ought to stick to it and ensure that it is tight enough to work. I welcome the debate on the report,...

Orders of the Day — Members' Interests (28 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: We possibly need to have a watching brief of what happens with various local methods of fund raising, which ties the debate to the issue of the funding of political parties and other matters, but I shall not stray from the motion. As a member of the Select Committee, I should want to keep a close eye on such matters for possible inclusion in future reports. I also welcome the change to...

Orders of the Day — Members' Interests (28 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: I speak as a Member of Parliament who was sponsored by the Confederation of Health Service Employees—as it will be for only a couple of days more, because it will be named Unison thereafter—only after selection and election. What is the right hon. Gentleman's interpretation of the new rules in my particular case, as I was not sponsored through the selection process?

Orders of the Day — Lobbying (28 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: I support the proposal to establish a register of lobbying interests. Such a register is essential to ensure transparency so that people who have direct professional contact with hon. Members can be identified by the public. Relationships must be open and above board, and that can be proved by comparing the Register of Members' Interests and the proposed register of lobbying interests. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 24 June.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: Does the Prime Minister share the sense of outrage at today's revelations that British taxpayers will have to foot a £1 million legal aid bill run up by that generous benefactor of the Tory party and bail bandit Mr. Asil Nadir, who does not seem to be short of a bob or two in northern Cyprus, at the same time as his Government are denying millions of people of modest means any access to...

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: Does the Minister agree that, in almost all cases one can think of, men too are responsible for the birth of children? A woman' capacity to give birth should not be regarded as some kind of extra cost that she takes into the workplace—a cost that makes firms disinclined to employ her. Reasonable maternity provision should be associated with extended paternity provision; in that way, the...

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: If the Minister had listened more carefully to the overall thrust of my remarks, he would not be quoting half-sentences out of context and he might have picked up that I said that the amendment dealt with a fairly trivial matter that happened on only a few occasions. Other matters affecting the health of mothers and babies are more serious and much more common, but the Government have seen...

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: It is tactical.

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: The Minister has just explained why the Government chose to abstain, although they really agreed with all the directive's provisions. Was that a tactical decision?

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: That was precisely the argument used before a Labour Government passed the equal pay legislation. It was said that, if women were granted equal pay, it would represent an extra cost and would militate against women being employed. Since then, there has, of course, been a huge growth in the employment of women.

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: This part of the Bill, which confers a number of extremely limited new rights on employees protected by law, reveals the Government at their most schizophrenic. The Minister of State in particular and the Government in general believe that any statutory protection for people at work is somehow a burden on business, merely a cost and something which should be reduced to the absolute minimum....

Clause 22: Right to Maternity Leave and Right to Return to Work (16 Jun 1993)

Angela Eagle: I am touched that the Government seem so concerned about their manifesto commitments, although they have spent the past few months reneging on most of them in the Budget—but I do not want to go into that.
