Orders of the Day — Petition: Leicester (Police Officers) (8 Dec 1988)

Keith Vaz: I wish to present a petition on bahalf of Mr. Mike Preston, Mr. Andrew Palmer, Mrs. Mary Draycott and 9,997 other people, including myself, living in the outer areas of my constituency, in the electoral wards of West Humberstone, Humberstone, Thurncourt, Evington and Coleman, who are deeply concerned about the high levels of crime in the city of Leicester and the need for more police officers...

Multi-fibre Arrangement (9 Dec 1988)

Keith Vaz: That is where the Minister spoils his case. He comes to the House, is courteous and charming and makes some good points about commitment to the industry. Last week in my constituency, Chilprufe, a firm that has been operating since 1906, and therefore is no fly-by-night, announced that 190 people were to be made redundant. The workers blame not GATT or the MFA but the Government, because they...

Multi-fibre Arrangement (9 Dec 1988)

Keith Vaz: Because of the hon. Gentleman.

Multi-fibre Arrangement (9 Dec 1988)

Keith Vaz: Yes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Leicester (Housing Waiting List) (14 Dec 1988)

Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he next plans to visit Leicester to discuss with the local council the housing waiting list.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Leicester (Housing Waiting List) (14 Dec 1988)

Keith Vaz: As the Minister was in Leicester so recently, he will know that there are currently 10,500 people on the housing waiting list in Leicester and that last year the city council did not build a single new council house. That contrasts with the position 10 years ago when it used to build an average of 1,000 new houses a year. Does the Minister realise that the appalling statistics are a direct...

Air Crash (East Midlands) (10 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: As a fellow Leicestershire Member, may I join the hon. Member for Leicestershire, North-West (Mr. Ashby) in praising the emergency services of the county—in particular, the work of the royal infirmary? In passing, we should note that there are proposals to close eight of the hospitals in Leicestershire; I hope that, because of the work of the emergency services, that will be reviewed. On 5...

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (11 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (11 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: rose—

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (11 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: Employment Bills should be about creating the climate and conditions for employment. They should be carefully drafted measures designed to define the rights of the employed, to enhance and clarify them and to support good industrial relations and, in so doing, to aid national prosperity. By those criteria, this Bill fails miserably, eroding rights, restricting the advances of a century of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Task Forces (East Midlands) (18 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: In view of the Minister's cheerful explanation about the Highfields task force—which I dispute—does he think that it is appropriate at this stage to enable local authorities to play a more direct role in the operation of the inner-city task forces? Does he agree that now is the time to place the task forces under the direct control of local authorities? He will recall that when the matter...

Mr. Viraj Mendis (18 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: Every law-abiding citizen, every person who worships in a church as I do, or in a gudwara, a mosque or a temple, will be deeply outraged by the Government's action. The Home Secretary and the Minister of State have endorsed state hooliganism at the same time as lecturing football supporters on hooliganism. They have violated human rights at the same time as lecturing the Russians on human...

Mr. Viraj Mendis (18 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. During Question No. 4 to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, the hon. Member for Battersea (Mr. Bowis) asked about the conduct between the Department of the Duchy of Lancaster and Church organisations in inner-city areas. In view of the Government's actions this morning, do you not think it appropriate that we have a statement from the Home Secretary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Crown Prosecution Service (23 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: To ask the Attorney-General what steps he proposes to take to improve staffing levels in the Crown Prosecution Service; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Crown Prosecution Service (23 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: I listened carefully to the reply given by the Attorney-General to my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Aberavon (Mr. Morris) and I agree that we should congratulate those who work in the service on the enormous work that they do under great pressure. However, is not the operation of the CPS approaching a crisis? In Leicester, only 10 of the 22 established posts for lawyers have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Schools (Leicestershire) (31 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make additional resources available to schools in Leicestershire to pay for defects and repairs that are deemed necessary; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Schools (Leicestershire) (31 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: Is the Minister aware that during the Christmas recess I conducted a survey of the 29 schools in my constituency and 24 of them were found to be in a state of serious disrepair? One was a fire hazard and three were in a dangerous condition. They have had to wait a total of 175 years for decoration and repair. Yesterday, the director of education informed me that it will cost £1 million to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: To ask the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 31 January.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 1989)

Keith Vaz: Will the Prime Minister take time out of her busy day to examine her shoes and, in so doing, will she reflect on the current state of the British footwear industry, which in the last 10 years of her reign has shown a dramatic increase in imports, resulting in many British firms being closed and employees being put on the dole, including Percival's in Leicester? Bearing in mind that there is a...

Business of the House (2 Feb 1989)

Keith Vaz: The Leader of the House was not present during Home Office questions, so he would not have heard the Home Secretary's statement that he knew of no police authority that had contracted out services. Leicestershire education authority employs private contractors—private police officers—to patrol its schools. Bearing in mind the fact that, on Monday, the Home Secretary announced the...
