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

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank the Minister for that reply, but will he give greater priority to introducing greater openness in the decision-making process within the various institutions of the European Union? If he agrees with that basic proposition, will he give some idea of how greater transparency could be introduced into the decision-making processes of the Council of Ministers?

Bill Presented: Terms and Conditions of Employment (6 Feb 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: I start by declaring an interest, as a sponsored member of the Graphical, Paper and Media Union, and later in my speech I hope to explain how the regulations will affect employees in the printing industry. Before doing so, however, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Meacher) on the objective and lucid way in which he outlined our objections to the regulations. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Elderly People (16 Jan 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: Did those organisations convey to the Minister the concern that many elderly people feel about the cost of long-term care? What will the Government do to reduce the number of people—now about 40,000—who are forced to sell their homes each year? What additional measures do the Government intend to introduce to make the system more equitable and to ensure that that figure is reduced...

Business of the House (11 Jan 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does the Leader of the House recall that just before Christmas I raised with him the concern in Leicester about the Government's failure to lay the order conferring unitary status on that city? He will probably know that that fear has not been allayed in the interim. Can he announce the date for the order to be laid; failing that, can he give us a reason why the delay is occurring in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Budget (Industry) (11 Jan 1996)

Dr Jim Marshall: That is a typically bullish reply by the Chief Secretary. How does he square that bullish response with a real economic indicator such as manufacturing output, which has shown an increase of less than 1 per cent. over the past 12 months?

Business of the House (30 Nov 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: When is the Leader of the House likely to proceed with the orders dealing with reorganisation of local authorities that are to have elections in 1997? I hesitate to mention my authority today in view of the criticism, much of it unfair. As the Leader of the House knows, Leicester has been a model for race relations in the United Kingdom for the past 20 years. However, there is increasing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Western European Union (28 Nov 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: First, will the Secretary of State accept that, throughout the House, there is general agreement anyway that foreign and security policies should remain a separate pillar under the Maastricht arrangements? Secondly, will he give some idea of how he intends to improve or increase the WEU's operational capability? Words are fine—we have had plenty of words—but what sort of action will ensue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Western European Union (25 Oct 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank the Minister for that short reply. How are the various and differing views in the reflections committee, especially regarding the future relationship between the Western European Union and the European Union, developing, and which, if any, countries are still pushing for the WEU to be a fourth pillar of the European Union?

Bosnia (12 Jul 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I ask the Foreign Secretary to reconfirm that peacekeeping operations will be successful only if they have the consent of all the warring factions involved in the dispute? Does he further accept that, if that consent, whether total or partial, is seen to be withdrawn, withdrawal of troops is not a humiliation but could well be a necessity?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Council of Europe (5 Jul 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank the Minister for that answer, but I take a slightly different approach to the question. Is the Minister aware that the British parliamentary delegation to the Assembly of the Council of Europe is the same delegation as attends the Assembly of the Western European Union? In view of the heavy workload of the Council of Europe and the increasing workload and importance of the Assembly of...

Business of the House (29 Jun 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I again draw the attention of the Leader of the House to early-day motion 1030?

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the President of the Board of Trade what advice his Department has given the Office of Electricity Regulation on mergers and acquisitions of regional electricity companies.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Regional Electricity Companies (8 Feb 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank the Minister for that curt and short reply. Does he agree that the recent bid for Northern Electric highlights the weakness of the Government's position in terms of seeking to foster regional electricity companies that are responsive to local need and intent on fostering a regional identity? If he accepts that, how does he intend to ensure continued ministerial and parliamentary...
