Egypt (British Citizens) (18 Nov 1997)

Chris McCafferty: Is my hon. Friend aware that three generations of one family in my constituency—mother, grandmother and five-year-old daughter—died in the tragic events at Luxor? I welcome his message of condolence to the family, and wish to associate myself with it. I also welcome his unequivocal condemnation of terrorism when it is so fanatical and destructive. Equally, it should be said that the vast...

Prayers: Civil Justice and Legal Aid (21 Nov 1997)

Chris McCafferty: I am grateful for the opportunity to make my maiden speech in this debate. The constituency of Calder Valley, which I represent, follows the line of the River Calder, nestling in the heart of the south Pennine hills and surrounding but not including the town of Halifax. Much of the upland has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and there are significant areas that have been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Farmland Birds (4 Dec 1997)

Chris McCafferty: Although I congratulate the Government on their commitment to biodiversity, which is in stark contrast to the almost lack of interest shown by former Conservative Ministers, I urge my hon. Friend to take particular account of the rapid decline in certain species of bird. In particular, the skylark population has declined by 54 per cent. in the past 20 years.[Interruption.] What further plans...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Farmland Birds (4 Dec 1997)

Chris McCafferty: Thank you, Madam Speaker. I am not intimidated—perhaps slightly confused, but certainly not intimidated. What are the Government's further plans to protect endangered birdlife so that it can continue to be enjoyed by bird lovers not only in my constituency but throughout Britain? What measures will the Government take to encourage farmers to take up such schemes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Partnership (NHS) (24 Feb 1998)

Chris McCafferty: What new statutory duties he intends to introduce in the NHS relating to partnership. [29317]

Oral Answers to Questions — Partnership (NHS) (24 Feb 1998)

Chris McCafferty: In a modern and dependable health service, should not everyone work together and learn from each other? Is he aware that, in one hospital, nurses were warned against disclosing information relating to improvements in treatment, because it might jeopardise the hospital's competitive edge? Does that not sum up the gulf between the Government's new agenda for health and the tired old dogma of...

Agriculture (Aid) (16 Nov 1998)

Chris McCafferty: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his sensitivity to the special needs of hill farmers. It has never been easy to eke a living out of upland farming in my constituency, and today's package of measures will be especially welcome there; but will my right hon. Friend give me an assurance that, in looking to the long-term future of British agriculture, he will look for a sustainable and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (17 Dec 1998)

Chris McCafferty: If he will make a statement on the time scale for reform of the common agricultural policy. [62993]

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (17 Dec 1998)

Chris McCafferty: I am sure that my right hon. Friend agrees that the Agenda 2000 proposals for reform of the CAP will bring economic benefits and will be good news for consumers in the United Kingdom. Would my right hon. Friend care to comment on the overall impact that reform of the CAP will have on UK consumers?

Population and Development (Cairo Conference) (20 Jan 1999)

Chris McCafferty: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Clydebank and Milngavie (Mr. Worthington) on securing this debate on a subject that is so close to my heart, and so important. The first Cairo conference was a watershed for global population and development issues. Countries now accept that—as the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome (Mr. Heath) eloquently said—rapid population growth, high...

Population and Development (Cairo Conference) (20 Jan 1999)

Chris McCafferty: I believe that, if the hon. Lady is patient, she will find that the replies to her questions are in the responses that were made to the parliamentary hearings, and the group's recommendations. It is more a question of how things are done than of what is being done. I believe that, if the hon. Lady is patient, she will be able to take a different view. Some developing countries are reluctant...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Partnership and Quality of Care (2 Feb 1999)

Chris McCafferty: What new legal duties on partnership and quality of care he expects to introduce during 1999. [67173]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Partnership and Quality of Care (2 Feb 1999)

Chris McCafferty: Can my hon. Friend confirm that, through the Bill, for the first time, a legal duty will be placed on the quality of care, unlike before, when the only duty placed on trust chairs was to balance the books.

Prayers: Human Rights (Women) (10 Feb 1999)

Chris McCafferty: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Mrs. Cryer) on securing this important debate. I am pleased that we are having it during the week of the five-year review of the Cairo conference programme of action which put women's rights at the heart of its agenda. Despite many international agreements affirming women's human rights, girls and women are still much more likely...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Young Persons) Bill (16 Apr 1999)

Chris McCafferty: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. It is a great privilege to be able to introduce a private Member's Bill, and I am grateful for the opportunity to present this Bill because the measures that it contains are urgently needed. I regret the lack of time available to debate the issues fully, but I hope that hon. Members will want to support the Bill's objectives and will...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Young Persons) Bill (16 Apr 1999)

Chris McCafferty: Indeed, my hon. Friend is absolutely correct. The more supermarkets that stock alcohol and the more that ordinary folk like my hon. Friend and I use them to purchase alcohol, the more likely we are to be served, like David, by staff who are not directly employed by the licensee. As my hon. Friend clearly pointed out, it could happen to anyone's child. David's parents were distraught when...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Young Persons) Bill (16 Apr 1999)

Chris McCafferty: The right hon. Gentleman makes a good point. I accept that it is extremely difficult to prove the age of a young person who is determined to purchase alcohol—or any other product that it is illegal for a minor to purchase—and it is correct that the Government do not have a national ID scheme. However, I suggest that the new photo-ID driving licence will ultimately be carried by every...

Chris McCafferty: What direct consultation his Department has had with personal advisers working on the new deal for disabled people pilots. [94258]

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: New Deal (Disabled People) (28 Oct 1999)

Chris McCafferty: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. Can she assure me that personal advisers for disabled people who wish to participate in the new deal receive disability awareness training? Can she further assure me that there is effective monitoring of the treatment of and the help given to disabled people on the new deal, through, for example, exit surveys or interviews? Does that happen? What efforts...
