Pergau Dam (25 Jan 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: rose—

Pergau Dam (25 Jan 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: I shall give way when I have finished making my point, but other hon. Members want to speak, and we have only one and a half hours for debate. The Foreign Secretary must go further than his statement to Parliament on 13 December, and make two matters absolutely clear. First, he must state clearly that the Treasury will not be allowed to cut future spending allocations to the budget of the...

Pergau Dam (25 Jan 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: I agree with my hon. Friend's conclusion. Clearly, the Foreign Secretary should resign, together with all his Cabinet colleagues. To be fair to the Foreign Secretary—I am not usually fair to him—the High Court ruled that he acted unlawfully in using that piece of legislation. It did not rule that he was unable to provide funds to allow the project to go ahead. We are discussing the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Further Education Colleges (24 Jan 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Education what representations she has received regarding the democratic accountability of colleges of further education.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Further Education Colleges (24 Jan 1995)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does the Minister accept that the removal of democratic control and accountability has made possible the abuse of public funds and the distortion of education priorities, as happened in Derby and Birmingham? If he accepts that, and the report on those two organisations, what actions will he take to rectify the situation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Peace Process (1 Dec 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: Has the Secretary of State given any further consideration to publishing the minutes of the three-strand talks so that the House would be in a better position to determine how the framework document might throw light on the way in which it can overcome the difficulties that the minutes may highlight?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Union (2 Nov 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: In future enlargement discussions, will candidate countries be encouraged to join all the institutions, including associated institutions such as the Western European Union?

Opposition Day: Committee of Privileges (Evidence) (31 Oct 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: I have a great deal of sympathy with the right hon. Gentleman's point of view, especially with regard to publicity. Can he explain who the publicity will influence? Clearly, in a court of law, there is a possibility that jurors can be influenced by publicity. How can the publicity which might attach to the right hon. Gentleman's illustration influence the members of the Committee who will, in...

Northern Ireland (27 Oct 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Orders of the Day — European Union (Accessions) Bill (11 Jul 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I briefly address the final comments of the right hon. Member for Guildford (Mr. Howell)? I certainly agree that the next great challenge and leap forward for the European Union is the possible accession of the Visegrad countries, perhaps in a decade's time, followed by others. There is a curious irony that those countries, as the right hon. Gentleman said, will show far greater...

Orders of the Day — European Union (Accessions) Bill (11 Jul 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: As the hon. Gentleman knows, I am a member of the Western European Union, which is why I speak about it with such feeling. I have tried to express the view that the feelings of the four countries are the most likely to change in the near future, but the reality is that, at present, it is not their stated intention to become full members of the Western European Union. They have indicated their...

Orders of the Day — Deregulation and Contracting Out Bill: APPROVAL OF CERTAIN MARKETS (No. 3) (10 May 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I congratulate the Minister on seeing the sense of the argument against the Government's position? The hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Mr. Coombs) is arguing that franchise rights exercised by local authorities are anti-competitive. Why, then, does he not support legislation to remove similar rights from private markets?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Bosnia (10 May 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: Will the Secretary of State confirm that the military situation in Bosnia has dictated that British forces are now involved in three roles—humanitarian relief, peacekeeping and peacemaking?

Business of the House (5 May 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: I seek the assistance of the Leader of the House in respect of the Deregulation and Contracting Out Bill, which will be debated next week. The right hon. Gentleman will be aware that new clauses 22, 23 and 24 would remove from local authorities the right to control markets within a radius of six and two thirds miles. I hope that the Leader of the House will accept the growing consensus that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Milk Marketing (5 May 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if she will make a statement on the talks between her Department and the milk marketing board on the question of vesting day.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Milk Marketing (5 May 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am a little concerned about the reply that the Minister has just given. She has not yet stated that 1 November is a definite date. In that context, may I remind her that lethargy on the part of her Ministry has delayed vesting day by some six months and that the delay is likely to cost the dairy industry some £60 million or more? If there is a delay beyond 1 November, will she underwrite...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Livestock Identification (5 May 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is there evidence to indicate that cattle from English farms are going through the Province of Northern Ireland into the Republic and then being transported to other parts of the European Union?

Business of the House (21 Apr 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: May I draw the attention of the Leader of the House to early-day motion 963? [That this House condemns the decision of Leicester Royal Infirmary Trust to increase the rents of new student nurses from £12.25 per week to £32 per week, an increase of 250 per cent.; notes that existing student nurses are fearful and anxious that the proposed rent increases will be extended to them; and calls...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Military Expenditure (12 Apr 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: Does the Secretary of State agree that if some of our European allies continue to reduce their defence expenditure at the current rate there will be a real possibility that the concept of the WEU as a European pillar of NATO will fast become a joke? [Interruption.]

Departmental Select Committees (9 Mar 1994)

Dr Jim Marshall: I do not wish to detain the House too long. I share most of the misgivings expressed by the hon. Member for Leominster (Mr. Temple-Morris), and I wish that he would have the courage to follow them and vote with the Opposition parties. Much of what he said expresses a fear shared not only by Opposition Members but by many people throughout Great Britain and the island of Ireland. I must say...
