Debate on the Address: First Day (14 May 1997)

Dari Taylor: I hope that I am in order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I should be grateful if the hon. Member for Southend, West (Mr. Amess) would identify the 18 occasions on which we changed our views on Europe. Can he be specific?

Debate on the Address: First Day (14 May 1997)

Dari Taylor: If that is a problem, Mr. Deputy Speaker, perhaps the hon. Gentleman could write to me with those details.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Land Mines (16 Jun 1997)

Dari Taylor: I warmly welcome my right hon. Friend to his post, and I am delighted with his answer. The moratorium on land mines is long overdue. Will the moratorium extend to the JP-233 airfield denial weapon?

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: National Lottery (21 Jul 1997)

Dari Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has to reform the national lottery. [7505]

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: National Lottery (21 Jul 1997)

Dari Taylor: I hope that I will hear this afternoon that local applications are given equivalent consideration to applications made by quangos, if not more consideration. My question relates to my constituency, in which the Butterwick trust, a charity, wishes to open a hospice for dying children—anyone who goes through that period knows how traumatic it is. However, the trust has been turned down...

Clause 2: Electricity Pylons (Vale of York) (24 Jul 1997)

Dari Taylor: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to speak tonight. I must also extend my thanks to the hon. Member for Vale of York (Miss McIntosh) for allowing me to speak in her debate, for which I am grateful. As this is my maiden speech, I will certainly pepper it with some eulogies about my constituency, but it is not merely the visual outlook of the people of Stockton, South that is...

Bills Presented: Defence Policy (28 Oct 1997)

Dari Taylor: In yesterday's defence debate, my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall, South (Mr. George)—who is now the excellent Chair of the Defence Select Committee—said that many new Members now sit on that Committee. I am privileged to announce that I am one such member. After my hon. Friend the Member for Crawley (Laura Moffatt), I am the second woman to sit on the Defence Committee. We are the...

Bills Presented: Defence Policy (28 Oct 1997)

Dari Taylor: I have nearly finished what I want to say. The Defence Evaluation and Research Agency states that women are not strong enough. Who says so? The physical tests involve a single lift, repetitive lifts, carrying, and a loaded march. My mother was 5 ft tall and worked as a nurse for 15 years, until she was 58, repeatedly lifting very heavy dead weights. She did it with concern and compassion. No...

Bills Presented: Defence Policy (28 Oct 1997)

Dari Taylor: No, I will not. The previous Government were cutting for one reason only—because public expenditure was out of control. They wanted to save money at the expense of the 600 jobs that were lost in my constituency. That is perhaps not as many as other constituencies lost, but the loss came on top of already high unemployment. I hope that my Government will never do that. We should never cut...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Dec 1997)

Dari Taylor: Many of our youngsters are facing a serious crisis. One in 10 children who are absent from school are supposedly on GCSE courses but feel confident neither about being on those courses nor about their success. Many of them who are in youth courts—some 42 per cent.—are excluded from schools. The previous Administration excluded those youngsters and put them in this position....

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: School Standards (11 Dec 1997)

Dari Taylor: What plans he has to raise standards in schools in areas of disadvantage. [18757]

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: School Standards (11 Dec 1997)

Dari Taylor: I am pleased to welcome the education action zones. We should appreciate knowing when the criteria for the education action zones will be published and what they will be.

Orders of the Day — Teesside Development Corporation (14 Jan 1998)

Dari Taylor: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for allowing me to intervene. He has mentioned that there has been no exit policy and that we have received no information from the TDC. In my patch, we are left not just with the Tees barrage, where there could be serious maintenance problems, but with the imposition of a scheme that no local person wants in a part of rural Stockton that is beautiful and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Pension Entitlement (Women) (26 Jan 1998)

Dari Taylor: What plans she has to increase the pension entitlement of women. [23059]

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Pension Entitlement (Women) (26 Jan 1998)

Dari Taylor: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that reply. Does he agree that low pay and the earnings limit on contributory benefits have a serious impact on pensions? Does he therefore agree that the introduction of a statutory minimum wage will be very beneficial? Would he consider studying the idea of relaxing or abolishing the earnings limit on contributory benefits?

UK Land Command (22 Apr 1998)

Dari Taylor: My hon. Friend is making an extremely pertinent speech. Since the drawdown, my constituency has lost more than 500 jobs from Eaglescliffe naval stores. It was a serious blow to the northern region and should be taken into consideration.

Planning (Vale of York) (22 Apr 1998)

Dari Taylor: I hope that the hon. Lady does not mind me making this interjection and asking a question. I felt slapped by her statement about a "cowardly response". The written question was mine, and I thought that it was a fair way to ask the Minister—I asked him time and again when the report was to be published—so I object to that description. Secondly, does she not welcome, as I do, the fact that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Welfare Reform (27 Apr 1998)

Dari Taylor: I ask my right hon. Friend to consider the response from some of my constituents in respect of reform of the welfare state. First, it is coming through loud and clear that both providers and users believe that reform is well and truly overdue; but, secondly, they are explicitly asking for an assurance that benefits staff will not only effectively administer reforms when those are in place,...

Territorial Army (18 May 1998)

Dari Taylor: Much of the debate centres on the competence of the Territorial Army and reservists generally and on their relevance as a modern-day fighting force. It is often said—sometimes, I am sad to say, in the House and often among the public—that the volunteers represent a fighting force of the past. It is said that they are more to do with keeping retired soldiers busy than with providing an...
