Adjournment of the House (21 May 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: I congratulate both you, Madam Speaker, and the President of the Council. I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley, North (Mr. Cranston) and the hon. Member for Oxford, West and Abingdon (Dr. Harris) on their maiden speeches. I hope that I can follow in the same, successful vein. I pay tribute to Den Dover, the former hon. Member for Chorley, who represented the constituency...

European Council (Amsterdam) (18 Jun 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: May I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his successful visit to Europe and on his negotiations? However, did he have discussions with Chancellor Kohl about the Eurofighter? As thousands of jobs in my constituency and many more thousands in Lancashire depend on that project, I hope that he did.

Lindsay Hoyle: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will assess the need for paediatric intensive care provision in Chorley and South Ribble health district. [3481]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Paediatric Intensive Care (24 Jun 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: I welcome that. I would, however, point out that expectant mothers and youngsters involved in accidents have to travel up to 20 miles to reach those hospitals. Chorley and South Ribble is an area with a large population, so will the Minister look into providing a new maternity unit with the full back-up of paediatric services?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Technology College Status (26 Jun 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: Will my hon. Friend give favourable consideration to the application by Southlands school, when it is resubmitted? Will she accept that the school has the support of good business interests and fine financial support from the whole community? In the next round, favourable consideration will be important for Southlands, and for Gable Hall school in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member...

Prayers: European Fighter Aircraft (9 Jul 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise the crucial issue of the European fighter aircraft, and I am also grateful to the Under-Secretary of State for Defence, my hon. Friend the Member for Warley (Mr. Spellar), for being here to listen and reply to the debate. It is nice to remember that this is the 60th anniversary of Whittle's jet engine, which was developed in the north-west, so it is...

Prayers: European Fighter Aircraft (9 Jul 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: The right hon. Gentleman seems to be a little impatient. Obviously a bad night's sleep has not done him much good—he might get better rest tonight, and become more responsible tomorrow morning. So far, 11,000 people have been employed in the development phase, and estimates from the industry suggest that the peak of production could provide 16,000 jobs directly and another 16,000 among...

Business of the House (10 Jul 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: Has my right hon. Friend heard the good news that the Germans have committed themselves to the Eurofighter? That is good news not only for Chorley but for the rest of the country, as it will safeguard 32,000 jobs. When can we expect a general debate on defence?

Lindsay Hoyle: When he next plans to visit Gibraltar. [16007]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Gibraltar (25 Nov 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: Will the Foreign Secretary confirm his support for the 1969 constitution of Gibraltar? Is he as worried as I am by the hypocrisy of Spain, which has two enclaves in Morocco as well as the Canary Islands, which are further away from Madrid than Gibraltar is from London?

Defence Industry (3 Dec 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: I am grateful for the opportunity to lead this debate. I welcome the Secretary of State's determination to move to smart procurement. The major review carried out over the past few years made depressing reading and it is vital that the Ministry of Defence moves away from an inevitably confrontational relationship with the industry, which unalloyed competition policy brings. It should form a...

Defence Industry (3 Dec 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: I shall Help the right hon. Gentleman by repeating what I said. We know that the FLA cannot carry a main battle tank, but we are buying the C130J, which also cannot carry a main battle tank. The FLA can carry everything except the main battle tank, but, as we have noticed, the main battle tank is not needed by a fast reaction force. Unfortunately, the C130J cannot carry many tanks either, so...

Defence Industry (3 Dec 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: I welcome the hon. Member's remarks—and I welcome his conversion to Labour's procurement policy. I take on board his comments. We have the research facilities, the skills, and the development in the north-west: it would be madness to move it elsewhere. The Government are planning for the future. I am pleased that the hon. Gentleman supports that, and I look forward to his continuing...

Defence Industry (3 Dec 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the RAF is also happy with the Firefly? It has a proven record in the United States and it will support British industry and jobs. That is why the Minister should support the aircraft.

Lindsay Hoyle: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there has been a downsizing in my constituency of Chorley, where the leader of the Conservatives officially left the party last night to join the Labour party? That is along with the downsizing of the Liberal party Democrat after a senior Liberal Democrat councillor also crossed the floor to join the Labour party.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government Finance (16 Dec 1997)

Lindsay Hoyle: Can the Minister explain the concept of fairness, as Chorley is the only council in the north-west that has suffered the double blow of reductions in SSA and in revenue support grant? Could there have been a mistake? Will the Minister hold an urgent meeting with the local authority—around the table and not by video link?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Gibraltar (13 Jan 1998)

Lindsay Hoyle: Has the Minister told the Spanish Foreign Minister that there will be no joint proposals on Gibraltar, and that the future of Gibraltar rests with the people there? We do not want to see Gibraltar sold down the river, as the people of Hong Kong were sold down the Yangtze.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism Grants (19 Jan 1998)

Lindsay Hoyle: If he will reintroduce tourism grants in England under section 4 of the Development of Tourism Act 1969. [21449]

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism Grants (19 Jan 1998)

Lindsay Hoyle: Since the removal of section 4 grants by the previous Government, seaside towns and the north-west have lost heavily, while Wales and Scotland have achieved benefits by their continuation. Will my right hon. Friend consider their reintroduction?
