Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police (Restructuring) (11 Feb 1993)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Home Secretary say clearly whether he intends to move towards larger police forces? If he does, how does he propose that local communities should have an influence so that the police are sensitive and responsive to their needs?

Paddy Tipping: In view of the strength of public concern reflected in the letters in Ministers' and hon.

Business of the House (11 Mar 1993)

Paddy Tipping: Could time be found next week for an urgent statement about the plight of people who work in the mining industry? Every day they are breaking productivity records, but the Leader of the House will know that their extended redundancy scheme ends on 27 March—16 days away. Is it not time to back the people who are making those records and back off closing down the mining industry?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (29 Mar 1993)

Paddy Tipping: Earlier in the debate, there was some criticism of the miners and it was said that they should not contemplate strike action. It is a sign of miners' anxieties and their deep concern that even the traditionally moderate Nottinghamshire miners are balloting for strike action on Friday. It has also been said that the problems of the deep coal industry are the fault of the miners, who have not...

Business of the House (15 Apr 1993)

Paddy Tipping: The Leader of the House will remember that, in October, the Secretary of State for Employment announced a package of £75 million for retraining measures for redundant miners. On 31 March, she announced measures for the release of that money and it is clear that, because of those criteria, not one penny of that money will come to north Nottinghamshire. Miners feel that they are being...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Nuclear Review (21 Apr 1993)

Paddy Tipping: Does the Minister understand the real anger in Nottinghamshire and throughout the country arising from the fact that, while nuclear electricity receives a subsidy of £1·3 billion, half the coal industry has been closed down? Will he bring forward the review of nuclear electricity as quickly as possible so that mothballed collieries such as Bilsthorpe, Calverton and Rufford will at last have...

Business of the House (17 Jun 1993)

Paddy Tipping: There is a widespread feeling of betrayal among people working in the mining industry in Nottinghamshire and, indeed, throughout the country. Does the Leader of the House understand that those people will not be reassured by the fact that the President of the Board of Trade will be here to answer questions on Wednesday? What they want to know is why, only last March, assurances were given...

Schedule 2: Provisions Relating to Carrying Out of Approved Scheme of Reorganisation (23 Jun 1993)

Paddy Tipping: I thank the Minister for the way in which he has pursued the matter. I know that he will look at it again when the scheme of reorganisation comes before him and his colleagues. With permission, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Orders of the Day — Pit Closures (5 Jul 1993)

Paddy Tipping: It is 102 days since the Government published the White Paper on coal, and 98 days since the House had the opportunity to discuss it. In the space of four days, the Government put together a quick fix to persuade people to vote with them. That political fix is rapidly becoming unglued. The Government promised a subsidy that would keep 12 collieries open while they were market testing. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jul 1993)

Paddy Tipping: Given the citizens charter, is the Lord President concerned that Regional Railways has cut its publicity budget by 30 per cent? As a result of that, many small stations in the east midlands and East Anglia no longer appear on the timetable. Can the right hon. Gentleman assure rail users that those stations will stay open after privatisation? Does the right hon. Gentleman understand the...

Assisted Areas (26 Jul 1993)

Paddy Tipping: Coalfield communities face real challenges and real difficulties. In the Nottinghamshire coalfield, 40,000 people worked in the industry in 1980 and, in a few weeks' time, that number will shrink to 4,000. In the space of 13 unlucky years, nine out of every 10 mining jobs will have gone. Given that, will the Minister consider including in the Nottingham travel-to-work area places such as...

Prayers: Sub-Post Offices (27 Jul 1993)

Paddy Tipping: I have the great honour to present a petition from the people of north Nottinghamshire. There are 12,500 names on the petition, which calls for the retention of sub-post offices in north Nottinghamshire. I should like to thank the people who have organised the petition and the 30 sub-postmasters in the Sherwood constituency who have made this petition possible. The petition reads: The humble...
