Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Pit Closures (4 Nov 1992)

Paddy Tipping: The Government and British Coal are closing down five of the 12 collieries in Nottinghamshire and there is a world energy surplus, yet British Coal is tearing up green fields, hedgerows and trees on the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire border. Does not that reflect a dereliction of duty by the Government and the lack of an adequate energy framework?

Pit Closures (21 Oct 1992)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Secretary of State and the President—the great interventionist—say whether he has now picked up the phone to stop Russian coal being burnt at Aldermaston? He gave us a lecture earlier about another local authority. Will he stop 300,000 tonnes of coal from Russia being burnt at Aldermaston?

Pit Closures (21 Oct 1992)

Paddy Tipping: Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that the review should include imports? Should not the Minister for Energy get on the phone to the Ministry of Defence, which in the next day or two is to announce the purchase of 300,000 tonnes of imported coal for Aldermaston, and 200,000 for Bicester? The British Government try to shroud themselves in the British flag while Russian coal is used to power...

Coal Industry (19 Oct 1992)

Paddy Tipping: Will the President of the Board of Trade reassure the House and give some confidence to mining communities about the review that is to take place? It appears to have no independence at all. The President of the Board of Trade has told us several times this afternoon that the final outcome will be a contract between British Coal and the generators of 40 million tonnes. If that is the case, we...

Orders of the Day — British Coal and British Rail (Transfer Proposals) Bill: Safety Record (Transferees) (29 Jun 1992)

Paddy Tipping: The safety and health of mineworkers must be the paramount consideration in the mining industry. Those are not my words but those of the Minister for Energy, speaking in Nottinghamshire only a few weeks ago. They are supported by the management and work force of British Coal. British Coal has the best safety record in the world. It is twice as good as Germany's and five times better than...

Orders of the Day — British Coal and British Rail (Transfer Proposals) Bill: Safety Record (Transferees) (29 Jun 1992)

Paddy Tipping: It certainly is, but the problem facing the industry is the drive for productivity. Pits throughout the country increased their productivity by 100 per cent. in the past five years. Men have been removed from the workplace to be trained. Gains have been made elsewhere, but the cost of that training is a loss of productivity. That training record is under attack. The pit deputies' role is...

Local Government Finance (24 Jun 1992)

Paddy Tipping: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Local Government Finance (24 Jun 1992)

Paddy Tipping: I am interested in the notion of a no-pay culture. Will the hon. Gentleman comment on the research in Nottinghamshire that shows that Labour-controlled councils have a far better collection record than Conservative-controlled councils?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Arts Administration (15 Jun 1992)

Paddy Tipping: To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage when he last met the chairs of the regional arts boards to discuss further devolution of arts administration.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Arts Administration (15 Jun 1992)

Paddy Tipping: Will the Minister give an assurance that he intends to press ahead with the process of devolution? Bearing in mind the important part played by local authorities such as Nottinghamshire county council and the east midlands, will he assure us that they will have an important role in the process? The Minister will be aware of Nottinghamshire county council's fine support for opera. Will he...

Orders of the Day — British Coal and British Rail (Transfer Proposals) Bill (18 May 1992)

Paddy Tipping: The House should know of the excellent productivity standards that the new Minister for Energy has set himself. He caused some consternation last week when he visited the Nottinghamshire coalfield for the first time and decided that he was going to go down two collieries in one day. Given that excellent record, I hope that he witnessed at first-hand the productivity of the Nottinghamshire...

Privatisation (11 May 1992)

Paddy Tipping: I congratulate you, Madam Deputy Speaker, on your appointment. Hon. Members will know of Sherwood forest, its myths and its legends. People from Nottinghamshire, especially from the tourist industry, try to persuade people that all the tales are undoubtedly true. In contrast, the constituency of Sherwood is a far newer creation, having been formed in 1983. Its first Member of Parliament was...
