New clause 5: Additional Relief for Developing Country Debt (7 Jul 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: And London.

Earth Summit (15 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: I certainly welcome the fact that, on this issue, the Prime Minister appeared to be following a different course from the Americans, and I hope that that trend will continue. However, I have a question about the Prime Minister's visit to Colombia. When he discussed matters of trade with the Colombians, did he raise the question of bananas? Is the Prime Minister aware that the Colombians and...

Red Routes (London) (11 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: Is the Minister aware of the tremendous opposition in my constituency of Tottenham to red routes, particularly in the Haringey Green lanes district, where there is a unique blend of Greek and Turkish Cypriot shops which depend on passing trade? Is he aware of the effect that red routes will have on those businesses? Can he confirm that the majority of those who responded during the...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: I congratulate the hon. Member for Aylesbury (Mr. Lidington) on his excellent maiden speech. My hon. Friend the Member for Hackney, North and Stoke Newington (Ms. Abbott) made some good comments—she said that she could tell that the hon. Gentleman was new to the House. I hope that he continues to make such speeches. I welcome the debate and congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: My hon. Friend is right. When I entered Parliament in 1987, as he did, Members of Parliament were able to put a stop to the removal of visitors from this country. The Government moved quickly to outlaw that privilege for Members of Parliament who, as a result. were forced into bargaining with low-level immigration officers to try to get visitors a stay of one or two days while the Members of...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: 1, too, have no wish to quarrel with my hon. Friend, but I have never had to deal with such a case, and I look forward to the day when one comes before me. I have known of many cases affecting black people, but if the Government are also stopping white people from bringing brides or husbands over here, that is also to be deplored. I am concerned that a number of key issues are causing...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: My hon. Friend is entirely correct. In my area, many black auxiliary nurses and porters have recently been dismissed for various reasons, one of which is that some of the services have been privatised. My hon. Friend is right in what she says about cuts in the health service. Because there is no proper youth provision in my constituency, youths are turning to drug trafficking. Youth workers...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: I am being treated kindly this evening. I have agreed with the points of all those who have intervened. The area represented by the hon. Member for Upper Bann (Mr. Trimble) certainly has a clear need for such legislation. As a matter of fact, Haringey council accepted that Irish people were also a minority ethnic group in Britain and that view has played a part in the local legislation that...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: He should be here, but he can read Hansard tomorrow. I give him this advice. He has a reputation for being off the cuff and casual and for making flippant remarks. This is not the subject for him to practise those skills or non-skills, because people are extremely sensitive about it. He strayed into areas that he did not know much about. I advise him to be extremely cautious about what he...

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities (9 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: He lived in Brixton. He grew up in a house that had many races and I appreciate that his heart may be in the right place, but he needs the advice and support of Ministers and civil servants to ensure that these issues, some of which I have raised today, are given a proper hearing, that we set an example for the rest of Europe and that racism is no more in our society.

Earth Summit (3 Jun 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: Will the conference be discussing the policy advanced by third-world countries, that the rich countries of the north should cut their consumption to ensure that the earth's resources are rationed so that our children and grandchildren can benefit from them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Accident and Casualty Department, Haringey (12 May 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: North Middlesex hospital might be three miles from south Tottenham where my constituents live, but on a Saturday afternoon, especially when Spurs are playing, the High road becomes virtually a war zone, which means that my constituents are not able to get to the hospital. What will the Minister do about that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: EC Presidency (4 Mar 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: If the Foreign Secretary is still here—which I doubt—when Britain takes over the presidency of the European Community, will he insist that some race legislation is passed in the European Community to protect black and minority ethnic citizens when they move around Europe?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Lockerbie Bombing (4 Mar 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what developments there have been in relation to the attempts by Her Majesty's Government to secure the extradition of the two Libyan nationals accused of bombing flight PA 103 in 1988; and whether he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Lockerbie Bombing (4 Mar 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: Will the Minister confirm that under the terms of the 1971 Montreal convention, which was signed both by Libya and by Britain, any dispute can be referred for arbitration to the International Court of Justice? Now that Libya has referred the matter to the International Court of Justice, will Britain desist from trying to get the United Nations Security Council to impose sanctions or take...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Jan 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Tuesday 28 January.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Jan 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: Will the Prime Minister join me in congratulating Labour-controlled Haringey council and the children, teachers and parents of Haringey on the fact that our schools came joint top in English, maths and science in the level 3 standard assessment test and top in the individual subject of science? Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that that is a remarkable achievement, bearing in mind the...

Lockerbie Bombing (20 Jan 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: As an ex-lawyer, will the Minister turn his attention to my points about the Montreal convention? Why are the British Government not prepared to follow the procedures laid down in that convention?

Lockerbie Bombing (20 Jan 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: It has not been proved.

Lockerbie Bombing (20 Jan 1992)

Mr Bernie Grant: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) for allowing me some time in which to speak. As a person of African descent, I am particularly concerned about the plight of African countries and their peoples. That is why I am so keen to see justice done in the case of Libya. I am also opposed to terrorism, and keen to see the perpetrators of this horrendous crime brought to...
