Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Apr 2001)

Mr Bill Michie: In respect of the Kyoto protocol, may I ask my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister whether he will impress, as strongly as possible, on the President of the United States that the world is not owned by the United States, but is the property of every living soul on this planet? Will he remind him that the future of this planet does not rest with big business and profit, but with principled...

Mr Bill Michie: What action he is taking to deliver coal health payments in the south Yorkshire area. [153634]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Miners' Compensation (22 Mar 2001)

Mr Bill Michie: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply and for the work that he is doing to increase the speed with which compensation is paid out. He will be aware that 139,000 cases are still waiting to be dealt with, and that more cases are still coming in than are being completed. He will also know that it will be a long time before those claims are completed. We had another meeting with IRISC this week...

Oral Answers to Questions — Iraq (27 Feb 2001)

Mr Bill Michie: What UN Security Council meetings are planned in the next three months to discuss policy towards Iraq.[149703]

Oral Answers to Questions — Iraq (27 Feb 2001)

Mr Bill Michie: The situation is serious and future loss of life on both sides—by accident or design—is a stark reality. Since I accepted what was at the time the King's shilling and wore uniform, I have been convinced that politicians who vote for war and armed conflict should be the first on the front line, thus possibly avoiding future conflicts throughout the world. Will my hon. Friend talk to my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Farm Diversification (21 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: What steps the Government are taking to encourage farmers to take up options for farm diversification available under the England rural development programme. [142336]

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Farm Diversification (21 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. While it is welcome that rural communities and farmers are getting help and consideration, there are many rumours that a lot of open space, good farmland and green belt could be used for other purposes, which will close access and, of course, change the whole character of such areas. Can my right hon. Friend assure the House that that is not the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: Ever since the time of Adam, local government has complained about the amount of central Government funding for local services. Will my right hon. Friend, my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, the Cabinet and representatives of local government sit around a table in the near future and thrash out a system that is understandable and which targets money so that it goes where it is needed?

Debate on the Address (6 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: No one is saying that people should not ride a horse and break their neck. As the hon. Gentleman said, that is entirely up to the individual. Labour Members object to the cruel way in which an innocent animal is savaged, with the blooding of children and all the rest of it. That sort of thing is wrong. If people want to ride a horse, they can—indeed, they can fall off if they want—but it...

Debate on the Address (6 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: I promise to be brief and to the point and not to spend as much time as Opposition Members bemoaning the Maastricht treaty that was signed by the previous Conservative Government, not the Labour Government. In this place, there are many ups and downs. I have just experienced the quickest up and down of my political career, when the hon. Member for West Worcestershire (Sir M. Spicer) talked...

Debate on the Address (6 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: I am sure that the Whip knows—he has lost some hair since I stood up. I am merely reminding the Government that we have to keep in touch with our electorate and with reality. Labour, with all the rebels, will win the next election—first, because of our manifesto commitments, many of which have been carried out; secondly, because we are still progressive and are helping people in need;...

Debate on the Address (6 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: Dream on.

Debate on the Address (6 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: He is fascinated.

Mr Bill Michie: If he will make a statement on his plans to improve services for elderly people. [122866]

Oral Answers to Questions — Elderly People (6 Jun 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. Earlier this year, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health announced that he was setting up a new tier of intermediate services between hospitals and primary care. Can my hon. Friend inform the House what form that is likely to take? What steps have been taken to deal with age discrimination in the NHS?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: World Education Forum (3 May 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: What progress was made at the world education forum in Dakar on putting in place policies to deliver high-quality primary education for all children? [119356]

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: World Education Forum (3 May 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: I thank my right hon. Friend for that full and frank reply. In terms of her Department, what are the implications of the Dakar forum for the future? What steps does she think may be necessary to ensure that Governments of developing countries and donors fulfil the commitments that they made at Dakar, so that all children have the right to primary education?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Poverty and Heart Disease (2 May 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: What assessment he has made of the nature of the relationship between poverty and heart disease. [119066]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Poverty and Heart Disease (2 May 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: I thank my right hon. Friend for his reply. We are now more hopeful that we will get to the bottom of illnesses caused by poverty, particularly heart disease. Does my right hon. Friend think that health action zones will give information on the relationship between heart disease and poverty? By the way, the Sheffield hospital for women is on song, on target and on price.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Apr 2000)

Mr Bill Michie: Next week, the Secretary of State for International Development will be meeting with other people in the education forum. I know that she will do a good job because I have seen half the brief that she is preparing. Because of the fears of some organisations that some members of the forum are dragging their feet, will the Prime Minister lend his support to the aims, principles and objectives...
