Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Deprived Areas (6 Nov 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Does my right hon. Friend recognise that enterprise in a deprived area such as mine remains heavily dependent on the fortunes of the pottery industry, which in turn heavily depends on exports? In that context, does she share my concern about the 30 per cent. tariff on pottery imports from the United Kingdom to the United States? That swingeing tariff is having a very detrimental effect. Will...

Israeli Security Wall (4 Nov 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. Time is up.

Equitable Life (4 Nov 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. I think that the Minister has got the point.

Equitable Life (4 Nov 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. May we have that piece of equipment silenced, please?

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Pottery Products (4 Nov 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what recent meetings she has had with her counterpart in the United States of America to discuss import tariffs on United Kingdom pottery products; and if she will make a statement.

School Funding (29 Oct 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: In spite of the Opposition's negative carping, may I warmly welcome the positive way in which my right hon. Friend addressed fundamental issues in his statement? I have three brief questions for my right hon. Friend. First, can he assure me that needs and deprivation will figure prominently in the consideration of affected areas? Secondly, on pupil numbers, will authorities such as my own in...

Railway Maintenance (28 Oct 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Has my right hon. Friend noted that Network Rail's decision has been widely welcomed by everyone except, it seems, the Tories? Given the decision, is there not now a compelling logic that renewals should be treated in the same fashion, for two reasons? First, maintenance and renewals are vital sides of the same coin, and the effectiveness of one activity has a profound effect on the other....

EU Constitution (16 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: The answer to my hon. Friend's question is no. I can think of occasions since we joined the Common Market when referendums should have been held: the European Single Act, the Maastricht treaty and this proposal. I referred to building blocks and milestones. There will be another treaty, and we will have to examine it to see what effect it may have. I do not accept that every small change...

EU Constitution (16 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: I suppose that one's approach to the debate and the motion on the referendum will be affected by whether one believes that the draft constitution and the intergovernmental conference are simply tidying-up exercises and nothing to worry about because much has been agreed prior to the IGC and the constitution will simplify matters, or whether one believes those who say that the IGC and the...

EU Constitution (16 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: I have the greatest respect for my hon. Friend, who has served in the European Parliament. I do not have to answer that question, because he knows the process that is going on better than I do—he served in the European Parliament more recently than me. One of the first things with which we were presented in 1984 when I became a Member of the European Parliament was a draft constitution of...

EU Constitution (16 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: I accept the hon. Gentleman's point. We got away with not holding a referendum in 1986 and in 1992. I am arguing as strongly as I can that we will not get away with it again. We have been rumbled—[Interruption.] I hear my hon. Friend the Minister for Europe mumbling. I said "rumble", not "mumble". There is a widespread feeling in my constituency—I am not saying that it is true—that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Does my right hon. Friend agree that one of the reasons for the relative lack of interest on the part of the British people in the European Union is the widespread belief that it is effectively the fiefdom of the political elite? In addition to other good reasons for holding a referendum on the new constitution, would not such a move instil greater interest among the British people in EU...

EU-Igc (9 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: There is much in the Government's approach to the IGC and the Convention that I want to support. However, there is an equal number of issues that I have serious concerns about. The weakest arguments that I find in the Government's approach are those that are deployed against having a referendum. The White Paper is clear that the Convention and the IGC will affect the lives of every man, woman...

Written Answers — Health: Waiting Lists/Times (9 Sep 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients have waited more than (a) three months, (b) six months, (c) nine months and (d) 12 months for elective admissions in each year since 1997.

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 1 — NHS Foundation Trusts (8 Jul 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: The hon. Gentleman says that if foundation hospitals become a reality, he will support Addenbrooke's because the resources would flow from that decision, but will he have a care for my constituents, who will not benefit from the first wave of foundation hospitals and are likely to lose out as a result?

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 1 — NHS Foundation Trusts (8 Jul 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Will my right hon. Friend give way?
