Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS (Leicestershire) (25 Apr 1989)

Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the state of the National Health Service in Leicestershire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS (Leicestershire) (25 Apr 1989)

Keith Vaz: Is the Minister aware that, despite those mythical millions, currently 16,000 Leicestershire people are on the waiting list, more than 1,000 of whom have been waiting for longer than one year? Is he aware also that in Leicestershire, it takes 12 months to have a hearing aid fitted after referral from a GP? The Leicester royal infirmary has overspent its budget by £750,000 to protect local...

Orders of the Day — Children Bill [Lords] (27 Apr 1989)

Keith Vaz: On the point of concurrent jurisdiction and clause 67, why did the Government not think it appropriate to introduce a clause setting up a family court?

Orders of the Day — Children Bill [Lords] (27 Apr 1989)

Keith Vaz: I agree with the Minister that this is an important clause, but does he not agree with me that, as it is such an important clause, the Government should have spelt out in the Bill itself to whom notice should be given when the child is removed? Under clause 42, the Government reserve the ability to make rules at a later date. Surely the Minister agrees with me that these very important...

Orders of the Day — Children Bill [Lords] (27 Apr 1989)

Keith Vaz: Like other hon. Members on both sides of the House, I welcome the proposals in this Bill. It is a radical Bill from a radical Lord Chancellor. It will repeal seven post-war statutes and will amend many others, and it is appropriate that we should be considering these proposals at this time— 100 years after the introduction of the first statute protecting children. Of course, the immediate...

Orders of the Day — Children Bill [Lords] (27 Apr 1989)

Keith Vaz: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. That is why notices should state precisely what has happened to the child. When I gave out notices as a child care solicitor, they included the names and addresses of child care solicitors, including emergency numbers for them. If those factors were in the Bill, parents would know exactly who to turn to. They would have a detailed account of solicitors who...

Roads (White Paper) (18 May 1989)

Keith Vaz: What concerns me about the White Paper is the lack of emphasis on safety measures. In regard to the A46-A47 link road, the major road that will link Nottingham to Peterborough through Leicester, the Secretary of State should note that the local authority has said many times that it does not have the resources to meet the safety objections raised by local residents. What assurances can the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Nurses (Regrading Appeals) (23 May 1989)

Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the nurses regrading appeals in the Leicestershire health district.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Nurses (Regrading Appeals) (23 May 1989)

Keith Vaz: Does the Minister agree with the statement made by the director of personnel of the Leicestershire health authority that the appeal procedures are a major distraction from the work of the National Health Service? Does he also agree that in processing the 1,500 appeals that have been made it will take up to two years—until mid-1991—to clear the backlog, which will be a substantial ...

Opposition Day: Inner Cities (23 May 1989)

Keith Vaz: Will the right hon. Gentleman reflect on the task force experience in Leicester? Three years ago, amid a great fanfare, the Leicester task force was set up in Highfields. This year, in a sneaky letter to me and to other Leicester Members, it was announced that the task force was to close because of its failure. Will the Minister explain why that task force closed in Leicester?

Opposition Day: Inner Cities (23 May 1989)

China (6 Jun 1989)

Keith Vaz: What steps is the British embassy in Beijing taking to contact those British citizens who are resident outside the capital? I have a constituent, a Miss Elaine Sweeney, who is a teacher in the Situhan province in Chengdu. Her parents have been trying to contact her for the past week. I telephoned the Private Office of the Foreign Secretary at the weekend, and, although his official was very...

Business of the House (8 Jun 1989)

Keith Vaz: May we have a short statement early next week on the position of British citizens still in China? I have a constituent, Miss Elaine Sweeney, of Humberstone in Leicester, who is in Chengdu in Situhan province. I am grateful to the Foreign Office for the steps that it has taken to ascertain her whereabouts. She telephoned her mother this morning. I am concerned about the arrangements that are...

Ban of Useless Animal Experiments: Football Spectators Bill [Lords] (27 Jun 1989)

Keith Vaz: I add my congratulations to my hon. Friend the Member for Vauxhall (Ms. Hoey) on her fine speech. In a recent newspaper article, she said that she wished to be the first woman Minister for Sport. After the recent European election results, she may get her wish sooner than she thinks. I also pay tribute to the law-abiding football supporters in Britain, and, specifically, in my constituency...

Petitions: Gipsy Sites (Leicester) (28 Jun 1989)

Keith Vaz: I beg leave, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to present three petitions that have been signed by more than 1,450 of my constituents. All three petitions relate to the proposal by the environmental health department of Leicester city council to establish gipsy and traveller sites in densely populated areas of the eastern part of the city. The proposal affects directly the residents of Humberstone, West...
