Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Supplementary Benefit (Pensioners) (9 May 1978)

Mr Richard Page: I thank the hon. Gentleman for the figures. They show an increase over today's figures. As a consequence of that, and because of the disappointing figures that they represent in future, has the hon.

Trade Unions (Allocation of Political Funds) (9 May 1978)

Gentleman next speaks to the chairman of the BSC, will he impress on him the necessity to invest in winners and profit earners, such as the plant at Workington, and ensure that the investment in the new coking ovens there should be carried out as soon as possible? Will he recognise that, while there are surpluses in coke at the moment, with other plant closing down it is...

Bill Presented: Windscale Inquiry Report (22 Mar 1978)

Mr Richard Page: I very much appreciate your calling me in this debate, Mr. Deputy Speaker, especially as Windscale is only about 10 miles down the road from my constituency. There is a natural concern and worry in Cumbria about the proposed expansion, particularly on the West Coast, which is so near it and which also has a big unemployment problem. The situation there is a little clouded, and I feel that it...

Mr Richard Page: Although we welcome the recent drop in price increases, the increases given by the Minister show that the United Kingdom has suffered two to three times the rate of increase of our major competitors, and that is particularly affecting small businesses. Is the hon. Gentleman aware that simply to catch up we must secure half the inflation rate of our major competitors over the next four years?...

Orders of the Day — Thames Board Mills Limited (29 Nov 1977)

Mr Richard Page: I am pleased that we have this further opportunity to discuss future industrial expansion in Workington. I am delighted that industry in the area is expanding, and coming away from its original twin foundations of coal and steel. It may help the House if I explain why such a vast investment is necessary for what appears to be just a piece of paper. Duplex folding board is a superior-quality...

Orders of the Day — Thames Board Mills Limited (29 Nov 1977)

Mr Richard Page: The hon. Gentleman should try to get his facts right. The workers from Miller's have already contacted me, particularly about closed uppers coming in from Third world countries, and we are discussing with Ministers ways of monitoring these so that they do not get by the agreed levels. Let that be under-stood. I mentioned earlier the increase of 100,000 tons. If this level is maintained,...

To that end, will the right hon. Gentleman ensure that, if extra finance is needed, adequate parliamentary...

Clause 1: Membership of the Post Office (27 Jul 1977)

Mr Richard Page: One of the advantages of speaking at this time is that many of the arguments have been made. I do not intend to canter over them again. One of my original concerns was that we were obviously starting at the top and working through to the bottom. It reminded me of someone building a house by starting at the roof and filling in the foundations later. I was reassured by the Secretary of State...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: British Leyland (18 Jul 1977)

Mr Richard Page: Is the Minister satisfied that the purchases of components and machine tools by British Leyland are on the open market and are at arm's length, or are any other purchases being promoted by the NEB?

Orders of the Day — European Community (Regional Development Fund) (18 Jul 1977)

Mr Richard Page: In the couple of minutes at my disposal I should like to make two points. Whatever hon. Members' feelings are towards the Common Market, I think that there must be agreement that the European Regional Development Fund operates and gives tremendous opportunity to overcome a lot of longstanding regional problems. If it can provide aid for our regions and overcome the traditional areas of...
