Prayers: Policing (London) (23 Oct 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Will my hon. Friend confirm that some of the best responses to the Morgan report were from London Labour authorities? In the London borough of Hackney, the council made a joint response with the police, whereas, surprisingly, in the London borough of Wandsworth the council made a separate response from the police.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Crime (22 Oct 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Is the Minister aware of alarming reports that cuts in police overtime in London have resulted in a dramatic reduction, by one third, of cases coming before some criminal courts in London?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Carbon Dioxide Emissions (15 Jul 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement about the levels of reduction of carbon dioxide emissions he expects to achieve under current policies.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Carbon Dioxide Emissions (15 Jul 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: On two separate occasions this afternoon, the Government have been given the opportunity to answer this question clearly, but each time they have refused to do so. Will the Government stabilise emissions by the year 2000, regardless of what other countries do—yes or no?

New clause 5: Additional Relief for Developing Country Debt (7 Jul 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: As my hon. Friend the Member for Brent, South (Mr. Boateng) has said, the new clause constitutes a modest attempt to set Britain in the right direction in regard to the debts of the south of the world. It is not nearly enough, but it is a start. In 1992, UNICEF published its "State of the World's Children" report, which stated: A new slavery has shackled the African continent and its name is...

New Clause 3: Stamp Duty (Temporary Provisions) (Extension) (7 Jul 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Anyone who looks at the housing market in London, and anyone who, like me, is trying to sell a house and buy another one, would not believe that green shoots are sprouting as though springtime—although it is summer now—is about to arrive in the housing market. It is a desperate time in London for people who are anxious to buy houses. Many of those people are first-time buyers, and they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (1 Jul 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Given the continuing occupation by Turkish troops, what representations has the Minister made to the Turkish Government about the fate of the missing people, some of whom have families living in my constituency?

Mrs Barbara Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for Education when he expects to present the revised statutory order governing national curriculum technology.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Technology Curriculum (23 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Does the Secretary of State accept that if his predecessors had worked with teachers, such drastic revision would not have been necessary? Therefore, will he work with the people responsible for implementing the technology curriculum to ensure that such changes work?

Trust Hospitals (London) (18 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Tooting (Mr. Cox) for giving me time in his debate. All London Members are extremely concerned about the future of the capital's hospitals. Devasting cuts have recently been disclosed at University College hospital and Bart's, and the threat of closure continues to hang over the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospital, which is extremely famous, is...

Red Routes (London) (11 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Is the Minister aware that in my constituency there has been a great deal of protest from local residents and businesses about the Archway red route pilot scheme? Many local businesses have closed. Local business people to whom I have spoken blame the red route for that difficulty. Are not red routes bad for the community and for local businesses?

Tenants' Rights (5 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: On a related point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. My hon. Friend the Member for Greenwich (Mr. Raynsford) has rightly spoken of London's housing crisis. Many of the people whom he has described depend on good hospital services and the alarming news of cuts at the Whittington hospital will greatly concern my constituents. It really does demand a statement from the Secretary of State for Health.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (3 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when a Minister from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office last visited Cyprus to discuss the situation in the island.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (3 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Does the Foreign Secretary not appreciate that to the Cypriot community in this country the absence of a ministerial visit indicates that the 1974 invasion by Turkey and the continuing occupation of the northern part of the island of Cyprus is not a high priority for the Government? Does he not consider that the fate of the refugees and of the missing people in that country deserves a much...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: During the general election campaign, the Government said that, if they were re-elected, there would be movement in the economy. Despite all the talk, Britain is still in recession. The Government say that business wants to be certain of the economy's overall condition. That is perhaps the only sentiment expressed by Ministers with which I can agree. Business does want to know with certainty...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Jun 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: I am sure that right hon. and hon. Members in all parts of the House are visited in their surgeries by constituents who have problems with mortgage arrears. Londoners deserve better. London should once again be a world-class capital, but unfortunately the Bill contributes nothing to that. London needs investment in training, education, research, and development. I urge the Government to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Accident and Casualty Department, Haringey (12 May 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she has any plans to set up an accident and emergency casualty department in the borough of Haringey.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Accident and Casualty Department, Haringey (12 May 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Is the Minister aware that the two local hospitals, Whittington and North Middlesex, are extremely overstretched and in a financial crisis and that a consultant at North Middlesex hospital estimates that if it were to keep to its contracts for paediatric care it would have to turn away 600 sick children seeking admission from accident and emergency treatment? Does that not make a sham of the...

Public Expenditure (7 May 1992)

Mrs Barbara Roche: Thank you very much, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for calling me. May I congratulate you on your appointment? I am extremely honoured to represent the constituency of Hornsey and Wood Green. It is one of the largest constituencies in population terms in London, and it is a collection of north London villages. It is an extremely beautiful constituency, with a great deal of open space, but it also has...
