Rural White Paper (17 Oct 1995)

Paddy Tipping: The White Paper contains measures to improve access to the countryside. Does the Secretary of State accept that a great deal needs to be done to change the rhetoric into reality? I have in mind the White Paper commitment to allow public access to land sold off by the Forestry Commission, the need to ensure that the countryside stewardship scheme really guarantees new public access, and a...

Local Government Finance (30 Nov 1995)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Secretary of State consult parents about the settlement? What will he say to parents in Nottinghamshire when they bring to his attention the fact that the county council currently spends 7.5 per cent. or £25 million above the Government guideline on education? The county council will receive, at best, £15 million from the settlement, leaving a budget gap of £10 million. There will...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (30 Nov 1995)

Paddy Tipping: The President of the Board of Trade has not mentioned the privatised water companies. What would he say to Severn Trent Water which, the day before the Budget, announced an increase in profits of 75 per cent. to £160 million, but offered its customers a rebate of only £4 a year? That is not value for money for the customer.

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (30 Nov 1995)

Paddy Tipping: I am very pleased to follow the hon. Member for Bristol, North-West (Mr. Stern), and I was struck by his simile "champagne tastes on a beer budget". I hope that he will forgive me if I say to the House that I think a more correct simile from him would have been "caviar on a fish and chip income". The hon. Gentleman will recall the occasion to which I am referring. My hon. Friend the Member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Area Cost Adjustment (19 Dec 1995)

Paddy Tipping: The Minister said that the report would be available in June next year. Will he now give a commitment that a new and fair system will be in place for the financial year 1997-98? Does he appreciate that local authorities want action and not words? The present system discriminates against Nottinghamshire and the east midlands, which just want a fair deal.

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1995)

Paddy Tipping: I am delighted to welcome you to the Chair, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and to wish you a merry Christmas. I wish a successful new year to all my colleagues who have remained in the Chamber, although I think that we might define success in different ways. I am delighted to have the opportunity to return to an issue that I first raised when the House resumed after the summer recess on 15 October. It...

Coalfield Communities (10 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am extremely grateful for this debate about the regeneration of the coalfield communities. This is the first Wednesday debate of the new year, which is a time for reflection and recollection—a time to draw lessons from the past but also to tackle the coming year with new hope and resolution. That is what the coalfield communities are doing. It is also what they were doing three years ago....

Coalfield Communities (10 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: It is clear that opencasting can be a blot on the landscape. It should be allowed only where there is local support and where it will lead to environmental improvement. The problem with opencasting is that people want to make a profit out of it and that the profit is to be made out of big green-field sites. That again leads to further dereliction in coalfield communities.

Coalfield Communities (10 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: My hon. Friend makes two important points. First, we do not want planning blight in coalfield communities. People have lived with dereliction; they now aspire to something better. Secondly, she makes a strong point that the regeneration of coalfield communities will not be brought about by a three-year aid package, which is short term and limited; as she says, the process will last for 20...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Coalfield Communities (17 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: To ask the President of the Board of Trade what steps he has taken to ensure that the activities currently undertaken by British Coal Enterprise in coalfield communities will continue. [17892]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Coalfield Communities (17 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Minister confirm that he has seen research from independent experts showing that British Coal Enterprise has created thousands of jobs in coalfield communities? Will he talk to the chairman of British Coal to ensure that BCE is not necessarily sold to the highest bidder but goes to the bidder offering value for money—that is, the bidder who promises to retain and create much needed...

Orders of the Day — Potato Marketing Scheme (17 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Minister confirm that that is the earliest date to wind up the scheme and that he has the power to extend the scheme if necessary? Will he use that power if he is not confident that there is a level playing field across Europe?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am pleased to speak to the amendment. I had the opportunity to talk about the landfill tax during the Budget debate, and I welcomed it. I still welcome the landfill tax, and I have now had the opportunity to consider it further. My support for it is still substantial, although I have some reservations about one or two issues. The importance of the landfill tax in the Budget is that it...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Of course. Had he been listening, the hon. Gentleman would have heard me talk about the early construction of an incinerator in Nottinghamshire; it heats domestic and industrial properties throughout the city of Nottingham. The hon. Gentleman will also know of the work done by local authorities to recycle paper, glass, and so on. Obviously we should support all such work, but there remains...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am grateful for your advice, Mr. Morris. Perhaps Ministers will come to the House shortly—next week or perhaps the week after—to say how the gap between the extra costs to local authorities and the discounts on national insurance contributions, which is what the amendment is about, will be met. I very much hope that the Government will listen to the voice of local authorities on that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am grateful for the Minister's assurance that the issue is at least being examined. Could he turn his mind to the issue of ash from incinerated domestic waste? Will that be classed as inert? Is there not a case for the classification of soil, for which there should be no charge at all? I make this point not because I am a high taxer, but because I want the tax to be practical and efficient.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I accept two of the points that the Minister has made. First, resources have been made available to local authorities through credit approvals and the rest; but more needs to be done. Secondly, local authorities are actively making an attempt in this sphere. The bottom line is that landfill is substantially cheaper than recycling. How can we encourage more recycling when the cost difference...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: The effect of the landfill tax on the sugar beet industry has been mentioned several times. I hope that the Minister will listen to the anxieties that have been expressed on both sides of the Chamber. I have a direct constituency interest. Although British Sugar's factory at Newark is not in my constituency, many of the suppliers, farmers and producers are based in the Sherwood constituency...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge to Tax (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am grateful for the interest that the Minister has shown in the subject and for the discussions that are to take place between British Sugar and Customs and Excise. In those discussions, will the excise be mindful that British Sugar disposes of the waste itself? The waste goes to its own sites and it bears the costs. In effect, the whole operation is financially neutral and that may be an...
