Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Officers (Injuries) (22 Jul 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Are not the police under tremendous pressure as a result of the appalling statistics revealed by the Home Secretary? The Sheehy report has led to a complete disintegration of morale, and the proposition that there must be a link between performance and reward has not helped. Will the Home Secretary now repudiate that statement and give the police a clear assurance that the basis of market...

Points of Order (26 Jul 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. In view of the obvious disquiet that remains among many hon. Members about the Government's statement with which we have been occupied for the past hour, would you consider a request for an emergency debate on this serious issue?

Coal Industry (20 Oct 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Does the Minister accept that his statement represents another cynical event in this shabby process, which abuses the trust that many Conservative Back Benchers put in the Government about 12 months ago? Will he tell the House what has happened to the promised nuclear review as a result of the White Paper, and what is to be done about the burning of orimulsion in this country? How much of...

Opposition Day: Coal Industry (27 Oct 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: As to the geological problems that British collieries face by comparison with their overseas competitors, is the hon. Gentleman aware that one year before it closed 18 months ago, Trentham colliery in my constituency produced the quickest 2 million tonnes in Europe, and made £7 milllion profit?

Opposition Day: Coal Industry (27 Oct 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: In view of the time, I shall be brief. The crux of the debate is what has happened since the White Paper and that is what all hon. Members should consider and be concerned about. I have heard a lot of sympathy in the majority of speeches from Conservative Members—most contributions have been conspicuous for the amount of sympathy—but I have failed to detect any coherent response from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: In view of the collapse of the Government's policy on law and order, which has led to rocketing crime figures and equally record prison populations, does the Prime Minister agree with Mr. Derek Lewis that a return to that Victorian value, the prison ship, would be regrettable?

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental (2 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I seek your guidance, because what has just been said is not correct. I was in the Chamber throughout the debates but I did not contribute to them, and that is what is misleading the House. [Interruption.]

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental (2 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Can the hon. Gentleman help me, please? I am listening to the debate carefully, as I did throughout last night, which is more than he did. Is the hon. Gentleman calling on his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State to conduct the negotiations on the basis of the memorandum, which referred to "agreement", or on the basis of consultation of the trustees? I am sure that he would agree that...

Railways Bill: Employment (2 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: What might those conditions be at the time of transfer?

Railways Bill: Pensions. (2 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Having sat through most of the two-day debate without contributing to it, I hesitated to do so at this late hour, but was prompted to intervene by the speech of the hon. Member for Staffordshire, South (Mr. Cormack). Many of my hon. Friends, and some Conservative Members, have said that the Government do not understand what is happening. Having listened to the debate, I believe that they...

Railways Bill: Pensions. (2 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: I apologise, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am relatively new to the House and am grateful for your guidance. The comments of the hon. Member for Staffordshire, South touched on the issue of trust and faith. In response to an intervention by my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull, East (Mr. Prescott), he mentioned the National Bus Company employees. My hon. Friends the Members for West...

Clause 22: Public Sector Operators Not to Be Franchisees (3 Nov 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Will the Minister give way?

European Communities (9 Dec 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: The motion asks the House to take note of many things, two of which are the preliminary draft budget for the European Community for 1994, and the letter of amendment No. 1 to that draft budget. I agree entirely with the hon. Members, especially my hon. Friends, who have said that one of the greatest challenges facing the EC is unemployment. However, another corrosive problem keeps eating away...

European Communities (9 Dec 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Will the Chancellor give way?

European Communities (9 Dec 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Will the Chancellor give way?

European Communities (9 Dec 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: Will the Chancellor explain to the House how the Government are promoting enterprise when, on 15 November, the Budget Council, on which the Government are represented, unanimously agreed to another 700 million ecu of wasteful agricultural expenditure? How is that promoting enterprise?

General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (16 Dec 1993)

Mr George Stevenson: I share the Prime Minister's relief at the outcome of the GATT negotiations and his view of the need to reduce support and subsidies for agriculture, but how does that square with the fact that, on 15 November this year, the Government agreed to an increase of half a billion pounds in the draft EC budget for 1994, most of which will subsidise agriculture? Will the Prime Minister give us a...

Orders of the Day — Business of the House (12 Jan 1994)

Mr George Stevenson: Most hon. Members who are present tonight will find it remarkable that, the more the Government abuse the rights of the House, the funnier Conservative Members find it. Most of them—

Orders of the Day — Business of the House (12 Jan 1994)

Mr George Stevenson: This is my question, Madam Speaker. Why is a guillotine motion necessary, given the serious point made in tonight's debate? It was pointed out not only that there is time for adequate consideration to be given to this important measure, but that local authorities say that there is time for that to happpen without any curtailment of their ability to set the rates accordingly. There is no...

Orders of the Day — Non-Domestic Rating Bill (12 Jan 1994)

Mr George Stevenson: The important issue in the debate is trust. Members of Parliament are being asked whether the Government are to be trusted to do what they have said that they will do if there is a shortfall in the unified business rate pool. That issue is particularly important given the Government's record on local authority finance over the past 15 years. With the exception of the Minister's speech, all...
