Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Bosnia and Herzegovina (17 May 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: My right hon. Friend knows that the EU wishes to be perceived as a major player in the international sphere on maintaining security. Does he believe that that is sufficient reason for dividing security between the EU and NATO in Bosnia and Herzegovina? Since we are considering a Berlin-plus operation, will any non-EU European NATO allies be involved in it?

Acas: Postal Services (6 May 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: I do not wish to be accused of talking the Post Office down, but my personal experience and that of my office in Leicester of postal delivery is totally different from that of my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge (Mrs. Campbell). The situation is incomparably worse in Leicester now than it was four years ago. I hear all the rhetoric about what we have done, and what the Post Office...

Regional Broadcasting (East Midlands) (30 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: Will the Minister give way?

Regional Broadcasting (East Midlands) (30 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: My hon. Friend will be aware that a number of us have written to Ministers and to the body overseeing commercial TV, and he will know the response that we received. One of the main points in the response is that the regional TV company is spending a lot of money in the east midlands on further news-gathering facilities and on the ability to feed information to Birmingham. How does he answer...

Immigration Entry Clearance Standards (30 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: I do not recognise the system described by the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (David Davis). I have to deal with many immigration and asylum cases in my constituency, and it is still exceedingly difficult for people from certain countries to get into the United Kingdom either to settle or as visitors, so I do not understand the big picture that he is painting. If, however, what...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Former Yugoslavia (30 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: In view of the need to maintain the rule of law in Kosovo, is there any evidence in the recent past that KFOR has perhaps relaxed its vigilance there?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Balkans (British Deployment) (29 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: I welcome my right hon. Friend's remarks about progress in Bosnia, and I am sure that we all welcome the improvement in its political and security situation. However, can he give any reasons why similar progress is not being made in Kosovo? Perhaps one reason is that NATO has not placed as much emphasis on the political situation as it should. Will my right hon. Friend comment on that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Incapacity Benefit (15 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: If he will make a statement on helping people on incapacity benefit to get back to work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Incapacity Benefit (15 Mar 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank my hon. Friend for that full response. Does she agree that the positive policies that she has outlined to the House today are in stark contrast to the policies pursued by previous Tory Administrations who, in effect, used incapacity benefit as a means of fiddling the unemployment figures? As a consequence, the number of people claiming incapacity benefit increased threefold between...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I tell my right hon. Friend that I am not criticising him when I point out that in a debate of less than two hours, only 20 minutes is provided for Back-Bench Members? Surely we would all, including my right hon. Friend, agree that that is totally unacceptable. I suggest that my right hon. Friend and other Front-Bench Members make representations to the appropriate quarters so that in...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: If the hon. Gentleman had listened to my speeches in recent years, he would have heard me complain that Leicester had not received sufficient funds. I am making an exception this evening, for the reasons that I gave earlier. The people of Leicester are now being threatened with a 14 per cent. increase in council tax, and savage reductions in the provision of services by the voluntary sector....

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Drug Offenders (19 Jan 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does my hon. Friend agree that voluntary sector organisations have a big role to play in combating the drug problem as well as other social problems? Does she also agree that if a council such as mine in Leicester is determined to make cuts in the voluntary sector, it is likely to make the specific problem and other social problems worse?

Written Answers — Transport: Transport Council (5 Jan 2004)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the outcome was of the Transport Council held in Brussels on 4 to 5 December; what the Government's stance was on the issues discussed, including its voting record; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Home Department: Justice and Home Affairs Council (17 Dec 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the outcome of the Justice and Home Affairs Council held on 27 to 28 November was; what the Government's stance was on the issues discussed, including its voting record; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Competitiveness Council (2 Dec 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what the outcome was of the Competitiveness Council on 27 November; what the Government's stance was on the issues discussed, including its voting record; and if she will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asylum Seekers (14 Jul 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does my hon. Friend accept that although speedy decision making for fresh asylum seekers is welcome, many people have been in the country for several years on whom no decision, let alone an initial decision, has yet been taken? What steps will she take to speed up those people's applications?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Theatres (Lichfield) (30 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I also welcome my right hon. Friend back to the Front Bench? I am tempted to ask the Secretary of State to go via Leicester on her way to Lichfield tomorrow, to discuss the problems of the Leicester Haymarket theatre, but I know that you, Mr. Speaker, would rule me out of order if I were to do so. When the Secretary of State is in Lichfield tomorrow, discussing the future of theatres...

Deferred Division (18 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Could you remind my hon. Friend the Minister that if he reads the Order Paper, he will note that the motion makes specific reference to the European Scrutiny Committee's report on the Convention, which means that none of the contributions were out of order?

Deferred Division (18 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: The hon. Gentleman advances a dangerous argument. He mentioned Maastricht and 1992. Is he claiming that the Conservative Members who harassed the Major Government about the Maastricht treaty were ignoring the wishes of the British electorate?

Deferred Division (18 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: I have given you a commitment, Madam Deputy Speaker, to try to abide by the 10-minute rule that applies between 5 pm and 6.30 pm. I understand that, after me, you intend to call someone who has been a member of the Convention and may wish to take longer than 10 minutes. I accept a self-imposed restriction. The right hon. and learned Member for North-East Fife (Mr. Campbell) mentioned his...
