Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill (7 Nov 1983)

Mrs Marion Roe: It is a considerable disappointment to many, including its supporters, that the Labour party is in complete opposition to the Bill. This can only show that it is out of touch with the vast majority of people, who are demanding greater protection for themselves and their property against the criminal. Public confidence depends on the ability of the police to catch criminals and bring them to...

Orders of the Day — Sex Equality Bill (9 Dec 1983)

Mrs Marion Roe: Having stood against the hon. Member for Barking (Ms. Richardson) in the 1979 general election, I know that she is an experienced and sincere champion of women's rights and I have a deep respect for the conviction and purpose in her campaign to secure greater commitment to equality of opportunity in social, economic and political life. I say that despite the fact that she denied me the...

Orders of the Day — Sex Equality Bill (9 Dec 1983)

Mrs Marion Roe: It is not. I doubt that there is a woman Member of this House who has not felt some degree of discrimination. I am sure that every woman here can recall her feeling during the candidate's selection procedures when it becomes evident that some people have great difficulty in envisaging a woman assuming what is traditionally a man's job. But we cannot then proceed to insist that there should...

Orders of the Day — Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Bill [Lords] (16 Feb 1984)

Mrs Marion Roe: I am speaking in this debate not because I have been got at or lobbied by single-purpose pressure groups seeking to advertise themselves, but because I firmly believe that the family is the foundation of virtually every free society known to history. As a woman who has been married only once and has had the good fortune to remain married to the same man for 26 years—as the mother of three...

Orders of the Day — Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Bill [Lords] (16 Feb 1984)

Mrs Marion Roe: I shall deal with that later. I take the hon. Gentleman's point. In spite of the words in new section 25 2(f) which relate to any contributions made by looking after the home or caring for the family, I regard with some misgivings the additional words which are being added to the end of paragraph (a). If the new paragraph (a) is taken in conjunction with paragraph (b) it could be construed...

Temple Bar (27 Feb 1984)

Mrs Marion Roe: I am grateful for the opportunity of addressing the House on behalf of the many people for whom the plight of one of London's old gateways, a unique architectural gem known as Temple Bar, has become a matter of increasing anxiety.

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill: Information in Connection with Proposals for Abolition of Authorities (22 May 1984)

Mrs Marion Roe: To facilitate any programme of reorganisation, it is common sense that the relevant information be made available to ensure that the plans can be put into operation.
