Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Child Abuse (30 Jun 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: Will the Minister condemn the outrageous statement made in the House yesterday by the hon. Member for Stockton, South (Mr. Devlin) when he equated the Cleveland social services with the SS?

Business of the House (2 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: May I draw attention to early-day motion 8? [That this House, in the light of recent reports of child sexual abuse issuing from Cleveland and elsewhere, recalls with acute concern the claims registered by Incest Crisis Line, supported by many other agencies both statutory and voluntary, that children subjected to sexual abuse are the source of 90 per cent. of all rapists, 30 per cent. of all...

Child Abuse (Cleveland) (9 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: Will the Minister consider the question of additional funds for Cleveland county council? I accept the point that a number of different services will be included, but there has been great pressure on Cleveland's social services over the past couple of months, and clearly it will increase in the months to come.

Orders of the Day — British Shipbuilders (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: I begin by congratulating the hon. Member for Devon, West and Torridge (Miss Nicholson) on an excellent maiden speech. She made a convincing case for public spending and I hope that her obvious analytical and intellectual skills are not totally wasted on the Conservative Benches. Madam Deputy Speaker, may I add my congratulations to those of others and say how pleased we are to see you in...

Orders of the Day — British Shipbuilders (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: The hon. Member may shake his head, but that is a small indication of his inability to understand the real world. If we are going to reinvest, repair the economy and increase the manufacturing base, we have to work with the public sector, the private sector and local government. That investment must exist in an environment that is both flexible and stable. I am sure that is what we all want...

Orders of the Day — Urban Development (15 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: I shall ask the hon. Gentleman two questions. First, will he explain how, on Teesside, the 43,000 jobs lost under the Tory Government will be replaced? For example, on the water front, about which he is talking, how will a nature reserve and investment of £10 million solve the problem of our job losses?

Orders of the Day — Urban Development (15 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: I was drawing a comparison between the 45,000 jobs that have been lost in the past eight years and the 6,000 jobs that are promised by the UDC.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jul 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: Will the Prime Minister please consider whether any of the proposed cuts in the 20 million tonnes of steel from the European Steel Community production should take place in the British Steel Corporation, in view of the fact that we have had higher percentage deductions in staffing and production than any other European steel producer?

Orders of the Day — Scottish Development Agency Bill (29 Oct 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: Is the hon. Gentleman satisfied with the financial support that has been given to the Teesside urban development corporation?

Orders of the Day — Scottish Development Agency Bill (29 Oct 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: But is the hon. Gentleman satisfied?

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Electricity Industry (2 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: Does the Minister accept that the average cost of electricity generated in the United Kingdom in the future will be affected by the proposed expansions at Hinkley Point? In view of that, will he tell us whether the public inquiry at Hinkley Point will take place before, or after, privatisation?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill (2 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: After the Government lost in the courts in the case of Moran against the Secretary of State they moved the goalposts in the House of Commons. The Minister has obviously never looked after a sick or elderly person, otherwise he would never have put forward this proposal.

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill (2 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: At the beginning of her speech the hon. Member for Surrey, South-West said that she admired the hon. Member for Kensington (Sir B. Rhys Williams) because he was not guided by short-terrn political interests. If the hon. Lady admires the hon. Gentleman for that, I am sure that she will vote against the Bill because it is guided by one thing only—short-term political interest. I thank the...

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill (2 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: That is absolutely right. That Government lawyer said: It will affect, the Secretary of State believes, potentially a large number of claimants, because it affects not only epileptics which is the case before your lordships, but probably also diabetics, mentally retarded children, hyperactive children, asthmatic children, children with cystic fibrosis, certain cases of elderly people who...

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (3 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: rose—

Orders of the Day — Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill (4 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: I am sure that my hon. Friend acknowledges that we want to bring industry to the north-east. It must be made clear to the Government Benches that not one Labour local authority in the northeast—if there is one, I ask the Minister to name it—has turned down an industry that has wanted to come to the north-east. Many industries have done so and we will welcome many more. Indeed, we have...

Orders of the Day — Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill (4 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: I am served by the same district council of Langbaurgh and can say without any doubt that, in the short time in which I have been an hon. Member, I have had nothing but help, experience and knowledge from the elected members of that council. I hope that when the hon. Gentleman talks about people as "poor" elected members he is not referring to the Labour members. Perhaps he should talk to...

Orders of the Day — Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill (4 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I should like to clarify the position of the previous hon. Member for Redcar, who was not deselected but stood down of his own free will. If the hon. Member for Langbaurgh (Mr. Holt) had read the article in "The House Magazine", he would have seen——

Orders of the Day — Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill (4 Nov 1987)

Dr Mo Mowlam: I want to respond to a couple of points made by the hon. Member for Darlington (Mr. Fallon). To suggest, as he did, that the psychological atmosphere in Cleveland could be improved, and then to say that the child abuse inquiry should consider doing away with Cleveland county council, was irresponsible and flippant. The inquiry is a difficult, complex issue, about which one should not be...
