Deferred Division (18 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am listening closely and with great interest to what my hon. Friend is saying about scrutiny by this Parliament. She has appeared before the European Scrutiny Committee on more than one occasion and has been subjected to close questioning about her activities. She will be aware that that Committee is one of the most effective in Europe. One of the big problems is getting debates on the...

European Affairs (18 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: I have some sympathy with the point that the right hon. Gentleman is making, but he overstates his case when he represents an agenda presented by individuals, or even countries. He must understand that that is not how the constitutional power of the European Union has increased over the past 40 years. It happens when the Foreign Ministers and Heads of State start negotiating and horse-trading...

European Affairs (18 Jun 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thought that I would ask my right hon. Friend a question while he is clearly in a good mood. He referred to the constitutional aspects of the Convention's proposals. He will remember that one of the other objectives of the Laeken summit was to try to connect EU citizens to the Union. Does he perceive anything in the Convention that is likely to forward that objective? I, for one, cannot.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Gun Amnesty (28 Apr 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: We all welcome the success of the amnesty, but does my right hon. Friend really believe his assertion that it will affect the availability of guns to criminals who wish to use them in the furtherance of crime?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asylum Seekers (24 Mar 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: Will my hon. Friend tell the House what advice she is giving to people interviewing new asylum seekers in the United Kingdom, in view of the Court of Appeal's decision last week?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraqi Armed Forces (3 Mar 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: The answer that my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Blaby (Mr. Robathan) indicated to me at least that, in practice, the state of the Iraqi military poses no threat. If it is so weak, why do we have to have a proposed military invasion of Iraq?

Business of the House (27 Feb 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: My right hon. Friend will recall that a few weeks ago I raised with him the consequences of the implementation of section 55 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002. He will also recall that some days ago the High Court decided that section 55 infringed the human rights of asylum seekers. My understanding is that the Home Office is likely to appeal against that decision, and that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Asylum System (24 Feb 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does my right hon. Friend accept that not all his hon. Friends accept his statement last week in which he condemned the High Court judgment on section 55? Instead of appealing against that judgment, will he instruct immigration officials to interpret section 55 in terms of a reasonable period after entry into the United Kingdom, rather than on immediate entry?

Business of the House (30 Jan 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I say to my right hon. Friend as a friend of long standing that I shall start to fear for his future unless he begins to control his sense of irony and does not play to the Opposition gallery too readily, as he appears to be doing? On a more substantive point, is my right hon. Friend aware that the implementation of section 55 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 is causing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Resettlement (20 Jan 2003)

Dr Jim Marshall: The whole House hears what the Home Secretary has to say about refugees and asylum seekers—many of us would share those sentiments—but what hope can he give to those asylum seekers in this country who will now find themselves destitute as a consequence of the implementation of section 55 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002?

Defence — NATO Capabilities (9 Dec 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does my right hon. Friend accept that the conditions imposed by the economic stability pact may make it more difficult for NATO countries that are also members of the European Union's single currency to increase their defence expenditure and thus improve their defence capability?

Orders of the Day — UN Security Council Resolution 1441 (25 Nov 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: The right hon. Gentleman refers to the need for certainty, but he listened as closely as me to the Foreign Secretary's speech. While the right hon. Gentleman conveyed uncertainty, and spoke hypothetically, using phrases such as Xwould prefer a second resolution", and Xwould, under certain circumstances, be prepared to move," it was clear from my right hon. Friend's language that, in the...

Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill: Clause 14 — Establishment of Centres (5 Nov 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: I agree with everything that my hon. Friend has said, but I cannot help but feel, in my cynical way, that he is putting too positive a gloss on what Home Office Ministers are trying to do. I suspect that the Home Office does not want these children to put down roots in the local community. It does not want them to go to school with kids who live in the community, because if their parents were...

Orders of the Day — Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill (24 Apr 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: I shall not pursue the arguments of the hon. Member for West Dorset (Mr. Letwin), but he may not object if I tell him that I found his contribution a radical change from those that we have heard from his predecessors on the Tory Front Bench. Speaking as an individual supporter of the Government, I certainly welcome his general tone and his argument for rational discussion. That can do...

Local Government Finance (30 Jan 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am aware of the 12-minute limit; it is one of the reasons why, although I am sorely tempted to debate with the hon. Member for North-East Cambridgeshire (Mr. Moss), I shall refrain from doing so, except to express agreement with a specific part of his speech, but not the arguments that surround it. The hon. Gentleman mentioned the problem of social services,...

Local Government Finance (30 Jan 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: It was implicit in what I said that I recognise that there are problems on both sides. I am concerned that the way that the formula works at the moment seems to neglect the problems arising from falling populations, while recognising the problems of increasing populations. Clearly, both types of local authority have problems, but they are necessarily different kinds of problem. I hope that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Regional Theatre (Leicester) (21 Jan 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: What steps the Government are taking to support regional theatre in Leicester.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Regional Theatre (Leicester) (21 Jan 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: Perhaps my hon. Friend will realise that, with the events that have unfolded in Leicester in the past days, there are other questions that I should like to address to the Government, but I do not think that he is the relevant Minister to answer them. I thank him for his reply, but is he aware that the replacement theatre for the Haymarket, which is due to be built in the St. George's area of...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Environment Council (15 Jan 2002)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the outcome was of the Environment Council held in Brussels on 12 to 13 December; what the Government's position was on each issue discussed, including their voting record; and if she will make a statement.

Written Answers — Education and Skills: Education and Youth Council (10 Dec 2001)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the outcome was of the Education and Youth Council held in Brussels on 29 November; what the Government's position was on each issue discussed, including its voting record; and if she will make a statement.
