Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Requirements to Be Satisfied by Approved Schemes (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am pleased to have had the opportunity to listen to the Financial Secretary's remarks. I generally welcome the changes to executive share options that are set out in the Finance Bill. The Financial Secretary made some historical references early in his speech, and perhaps it is worth remembering how the clause came to be a part of the Finance Bill. We should remember that the Government...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Requirements to Be Satisfied by Approved Schemes (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: The hon. Gentleman makes a fair point. The length of service issue is important. Like him, I would like to see more short-term contracts of about one year's duration. At Severn Trent, the diversification into waste disposal and the acquisition of Biffa led to problems within the company. The public find it hard to believe that the chief executives at East Midlands Electricity and Severn...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Requirements to Be Satisfied by Approved Schemes (23 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: That may be a risk, but it is a choice for the company. I feel strongly that the benefits of such schemes would outweigh the disadvantages enormously. The first benefit would be transparency. The second benefit would be that everyone in the company would have a sense of stakeholding and shareholding. The schemes would be a recognition that people were companies' greatest assets and they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Tuesday 30 January. [10402]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: How would the Prime Minister describe someone who, before the general election, promised not to extend the scope of VAT, but after the election extended VAT and imposed it on fuel at 8 per cent.? Would he describe that person as a hypocrite or a liar?

Access to the Countryside (30 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the law of trespass and to enable members of the public to resort on foot to open country in England and Wales for their recreation; and for connected purposes. The Bill's principal aim is to amend the law of trespass to enable members of the public to resort on foot to open country in England and Wales for their recreation....

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance (31 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: My hon. Friend mentioned the move towards unitary authorities. Have not some orders yet to be laid, and do not shadow authorities that should start in May 1997 need elections in May 1996? Is there not a suspicion that the Government are cherry picking which orders will come through? Why has no commitment been made that the order in respect of Nottingham will be laid before the end of February?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance (31 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Will my hon. Friend give way on that point?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance (31 Jan 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I was interested to hear my hon. Friend mention blustering. I wonder what she makes of the fact that, in Nottinghamshire, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has been saying that there is extra money for education in Nottinghamshire. The local authority in Nottinghamshire has spent all the extra money in schools, yet next year, in the Chancellor's constituency of Rushcliffe, teachers' jobs will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Retail Prices Index (Food Goods) (1 Feb 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Does not the common agricultural policy add about £20 to a typical family's weekly bill? Is not a reform of the CAP essential, and needed urgently, if we are to help ordinary families with their cost of living?

The Economy (4 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I listened carefully to the Chancellor's speech, and noted with interest that, according to him, middle England's prospects were balmy and ambrosial. As I have the advantage of coming from the same county as the right hon. and learned Gentleman, I have the opportunity of seeing him play both at home and away; I also know what is going on in his own back yard. I should be very surprised if...

The Economy (4 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Above all, we must move from a low-skill and low self-esteem economy to one that invests in people, puts them at the cornerstone of our economic future and teaches them to adapt and work in teams. It should also teach them how to become enterprising and demonstrate that they can have a stake in the running of their country. That is the fundamental—

The Economy (4 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: No, I will not give way again. That is the fundamental difference. Many Opposition Members believe that investment in education and training is how to make progress—not through an unskilled and unrewarded labour force.

The Economy (4 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: If the hon. Gentleman will restrain himself for a short while, I shall give him some concrete examples. The recovery in Nottinghamshire was patchy. I should like to use this opportunity—while the President of the Board of Trade is in the Chamber—to talk a little about the Nottinghamshire coalfield and about coalfield communities in general. He will recall that, in 1980, there were 40,000...

The Economy (4 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I would say to young people, "You have rights and responsibilities too." For 4,000 young people to be out of work for more than five years reflects badly not only on the economy, but on them. We must ensure that the cost of youth unemployment is worked out. Sixty thousand modern apprentices should be in training; today, only 15,000 youngsters have gone into the modern apprenticeship scheme....

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police (New Technology) (14 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how he intends to fund developments in new technology to free police officers from paperwork and administrative duties. [18987]

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police (New Technology) (14 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Is this not a Government who have piled one lot of paperwork on top of another through successive Criminal Justice Acts? Is this not a Government who have cut the number of police officers by 186 between September 1992 and March 1995? Is this not a Government who plan to cut capital expenditure next year by £23 million? Are those not prime examples of the Government saying one thing but...

Orders of the Day — Family Law Bill [Lords] (25 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: I am pleased to take part in what, so far, has been a thoughtful debate. Few things are more important than partnership, marriage and having children, and seeing those children go through the cycle again. That is the fundamental life-blood that runs through our society and we all have experience of it. We must learn not to let our experience prejudice social policy, because all marriages are...

Opposition Day: Health and Safety (26 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: Has my hon. Friend seen the figures from the Health and Safety Executive about the fragmentation of the coal industry, and the fact that major injuries in the private industry increased by 17 per cent. between April and September 1995 compared with the same period under British Coal? Does that not mean that we need to monitor the situation more carefully?

Opposition Day: Health and Safety (26 Mar 1996)

Paddy Tipping: The Minister has been talking about major injuries. Returning to the coal industry, will he confirm that the HSE's figures show that major injuries in that industry have increased by 17 per cent. in the period from April to September 1995 compared with the same period under British Coal?
