Business of the House (6 Nov 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I ask my right hon. Friend to return to the issue of higher education, which was raised by the shadow Leader of the House? What kind of legislative vehicle do the Government intend to use for the introduction of tuition fees? Will primary or secondary legislation be required? Irrespective of the vehicle to be used, will she give a firm guarantee that there will be a full and frank...

Counter-terrorism Legislation (30 Oct 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: As one of those who down the years has dealt with these matters, I warmly welcome the decision that my right hon. Friend has announced today. I remember, as he will, being labelled the terrorists' friend, which was and remains a gross calumny. I am pleased to be reprieved by his decision today. When my right hon. Friend introduces his more general legislation, what criteria will he use to...

NATO Summit (9 Jul 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: My right hon. Friend agreed with the Leader of the Opposition that the expansion of NATO and that of the European Union would go together. Does he agree that the Western European Union should be involved in that equation? If so, will an invitation be extended to the three applicant countries to join the Western European Union? If that happens, what will be the consequences for the developing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Climate Change (1 Jul 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, when politicians put green policies at the top of the political agenda, it usually means substantial indirect tax increases?

Local Government Services (Leicester) (20 Feb 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am sorry that the Minister has stooped to that level of political dogfighting, particularly as he has given an incorrect figure. He referred to an increase in members' allowance of 600 per cent. The press forgot to take into account, and the Minister has also clearly failed to take into account, the fact that that ignores the removal of the previous allowances that councillors were paid....

Local Government Services (Leicester) (20 Feb 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am pleased to see that there are more Members in the Chamber than normal for an Adjournment debate, but I am sure that the number will drop to its customary level within a matter of seconds. I am delighted to have secured this Adjournment debate, but I am sad that it has to highlight the threat to local government services in Leicester as a consequence of the Government's revenue support...

Local Government Finance (3 Feb 1997)

Dr Jim Marshall: Mr. Deputy Speaker, the last time I was involved in a local government finance debate, I think that you were also involved. We both realise how long ago that was. As I listened to the Secretary of State's bluster, I reflected that I had not missed much over the past few years. If it were not for an pressing problem in the city of Leicester—I mention that to ensure that the Minister knows...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence (24 Oct 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: The Secretary of State mentioned the Western European Union. As he well knows, its enlargement is being discussed. How would that future enlargement be affected by the proposed enlargement of NATO to include the central European countries of Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic?

Orders of the Day — Statutory Instruments (Production and Sale) Bill (3 Jul 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: I should make it clear at the outset that I am a member of the parliamentary group of the Graphical, Paper and Media Union, that I was formally sponsored by it, but that I now receive no sponsorship personally. Union members who work in Her Majesty's Stationery Office will be as disappointed as me at your ruling, Madam Deputy Speaker, when you made it clear to my right hon. Friend the Member...

Orders of the Day — Statutory Instruments (Production and Sale) Bill (3 Jul 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: I have listened to the Minister with mounting interest. First, no one would disagree with his reasonable statements about variations in work loads for printers. However, if the 1946 Act specifically forbade the contracting out of statutory instruments, how did the practice begin? How has the practice developed if it is illegal? My second point is perhaps of greater interest in the current...

Orders of the Day — Statutory Instruments (Production and Sale) Bill (3 Jul 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way; I realise that it is only a short Bill, and that he wants to make progress. He said that the practice goes back at least to 1965, if I remember his written answer correctly. That date is very convenient for him, because it implicates both our parties. Why are we not dealing with the period from 1946 to 1965? Why stop at 1965? If people had been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Council of Ministers (United Kingdom Veto) (19 Jun 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list those European Union agreements relevant to UK industry that have been delayed as a consequence of the Government's decision of 21 May to use the UK veto at the Council of Ministers. [32110]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Council of Ministers (United Kingdom Veto) (19 Jun 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: I know that you, Madam Speaker, could not hear the Secretary of State's response any more than I could, so I shall have to pretend that I did.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Council of Ministers (United Kingdom Veto) (19 Jun 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: When will the President and his fellow Cabinet members realise that the Government's position on Europe, far from progressing a solution to the beef crisis, is hindering a solution to it and harming Britain's competitive position? Will the right hon. Gentleman estimate the cost to British industry of the blanket veto that this country is currently exercising on EU business?

Prayers: Defence and Security (Europe) (19 Jun 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: I hesitate to interrupt the hon. Gentleman so early in his speech, but does he not realise that if the WEU is to be an effective European pillar for NATO, it is essential that liaison and co-operation between those organisations has practical and real significance? That prospect will be enhanced if the WEU is situated in Brussels, where there can be regular personal and other forms of contact.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Nurses' Work Load (12 Mar 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent discussions he has had with the British Medical Association about the work load of nurses. [18386]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Nurses' Work Load (12 Mar 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does the Secretary of State accept that the new deal for junior hospital doctors can be implemented only with the co-operation of the nursing profession as nurses must adapt their role and take on new responsibilities? Is it not unfair that nurses should be awarded a pay increase of only 2 per cent. whereas junior hospital doctors are to receive an increase of 4.3 to 5.8 per cent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Intergovernmental Conference (6 Mar 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement about the Government's priorities for the European Union's intergovernmental conference. [17273]
