Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Jan 1993)

Bill Olner: I thank the Prime Minister for that reply. Many hundreds of skilled workers in my constituency are, unfortunately, out of work at the present time. Quite frankly, they are suffering from the Government's failure to support employers. Can we look forward in 1993 to no more false dawns but to positive action on jobs so that my constituents and their families can regain some dignity?

Will he arrange for an...

Market Power (Green Paper) (30 Nov 1992)

Bill Olner: Will the Secretary of State reinforce his intention to ensure that the current malpractice of the banks cartel against large, medium and small manufacturers will cease as a result of the Green Paper?

Orders of the Day — Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Bill (17 Nov 1992)

Bill Olner: Will the Secretary of State explain why so many jobs have been lost during this relatively strike-free period? I suggest that more days are lost through short-time working and through members in manufacturing industry being made redundant than were ever lost in the dark days which she so delightedly describes.

Petitions: Pit Closures (28 Oct 1992)

Community Charges (24 Jun 1992)

Bill Olner: I shall try to be brief, Mr. Deputy Speaker. When the Minister began to speak, there were so many Conservative interventions that I thought for a moment that I was watching a re-run of "Yes, Minister". I am sorry to see him sitting all alone on the Front Bench. The issue that we are discussing is fundamental to the welfare of my constituents and the people of Warwickshire in general. The...

Local Government Finance (24 Jun 1992)

Bill Olner: The hon. Gentleman cannot have it both ways. He has spoken about local accountability and local democracy, but it is the Government and their civil servants who set the capping levels that appertain to all local authorities. It is nonsense to say that local authorities can do what their constituents want. They cannot, because there is a central and overbearing burden put upon them by central...
