Business of the House (25 Jun 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I for once unequivocally congratulate my right hon.

If the Committee's recommendations are fully implemented, the ability of the House to scrutinise legislation coming from Brussels will be greatly enhanced. However, we need speedy implementation....

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Bosnia (22 Jun 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: Can my right hon. Friend say how close we are to achieving the desired objectives in Bosnia? If we are not there yet, will my right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Class Sizes (Leicestershire) (11 Jun 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: I hope it is, Madam Speaker, as I represent a Leicestershire seat. May I confirm what my right hon. Friend said about infant class sizes in the city of Leicester—that, because of the extra money that the city has received this year, there will be no infant class in excess of 30 from September this year? Does he accept that 10 per cent. of junior classes will be in excess of 30, however,...

Business of the House (21 May 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: It is not my intention to raise a point of order, Madam Speaker, since I believe that you are aware that, in a blink of one of your eyelids, an hon. Member scurried out and scurried in with copies of the statement of the President of the Board of Trade.

Business of the House (21 May 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: I can see the sadness in his face, Madam Speaker. My right hon. Friend the Leader of the House will be aware of the wide interest in the statement on the Government's White Paper "Fairness at Work". Will that be debated in the very near future? Looking further ahead, when the detailed legislation is introduced, will the two figures, dealing with the 40 per cent. threshold and the exclusion...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Gulf Presence (6 Apr 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I press my right hon. Friend a little further on the question of British troops—and American troops, for that matter—in the Gulf? In the light of the successful inspection of the nine presidential sites by the UN last week, can my right hon. Friend give some idea of the criteria that he will use before British troops are withdrawn? It seems to some of his right hon. and hon. Friends...

Business of the House (2 Apr 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the great anger in Leicester arising from this year's local government revenue settlement, which has led to a reduction in services and a council tax increase of 25 per cent.? Against that backcloth, can she arrange an early debate in the House, so that we can try to influence the Government on the future of local government financing before they make any firm...

Business of the House (19 Feb 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I press my right hon. Friend further on Iraq? She knows, as the House knows, that we had a good debate earlier this week, but I hope that she will accept that the Government should not regard that as the final word on the views of the House on further attacks on Iraq. I hope that she will bear in mind the points that the hon. Member for North Cornwall (Mr. Tyler) made. If there is...

Business of the House (12 Feb 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on arranging a debate on Iraq for next Tuesday. I am particularly pleased that the motion will be amendable, so that hon.

Friend give us some idea of when the Government are likely to introduce measures that will transpose the European works council...

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (10 Feb 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply, but may I push him a little further? Does he agree that Israel should comply fully with international agreements, into which it freely entered some years ago, and with successive United Nations resolutions on the middle east? Does he further agree that, if Israel were to do that, it would not only progress the middle east peace process but make it...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: In the past 33 minutes, the right hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Sir N. Fowler) made an entertaining speech, but it did not advance the cause of local government. Nevertheless, he entertained his right hon. and hon. Friends. That may be the first time that that has happened since the election last May. I was bemused by his peroration. He used the term "consistent local government"....

Iraq (26 Jan 1998)

Dr Jim Marshall: I do not wish to be one of those who seek to appease Saddam Hussein, but my hon. Friend said that one of our objectives should be to liberate the Iraqi people from his clutches. The Gulf war seven years ago failed to do that; sanctions since have failed. Why should we have any confidence in further military action leading to that desirable objective?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Higher Education Funding (13 Nov 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: I recognise the problem that my right hon. Friend faces in financing higher and further education, but does he not agree that if the Government's proposals on student funding lead to a dramatic fall in student numbers, that will create an even greater crisis in the sector's finances next year? How does he intend to cope with that potential crisis?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: National Health Service (Funding) (11 Nov 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: I also thank my right hon. Friend for the additional financial resources that will come to Leicestershire this year and next. Will my right hon. Friend guarantee that, in the review of the formulae for distributing the funds nationally, he will ensure that underfunded areas such as Leicestershire receive their due reward in coming years?
