Order of the Day: Examination of Passengers Prior to Arrival (16 Feb 1988)

Keith Vaz: I should like to speak briefly and raise two matters with the Minister. First, we welcome any proposals that will result in a reduction in delays in the immigration service. We are concerned about the delays that have occurred at Lunar house in Croydon. I visited Lunar house last Monday and saw a number of the 200,000 letters that have remained unopened there. The Minister visited Lunar...

Order of the Day: Examination of Passengers Prior to Arrival (16 Feb 1988)

Keith Vaz: The Minister was in Committee for more than 62 hours. On every occasion during every sitting of the Committee this matter was raised with him. It is high time that the matter came before the public, rather than being covered up by the Minister and his officials at the Home Office. What proposals does he have to end the delays? He should tell us that, rather than indulging in a personal attack...

Order of the Day: Examination of Passengers Prior to Arrival (16 Feb 1988)

Keith Vaz: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Minister's desire to clear up the delays in the posts abroad is in direct contrast to the chaos and crisis in Lunar house, where over 200,000 letters are lying unopened? The new clause may well result in vital members of the service at Lunar house being diverted abroad, leading to further chaos and crisis in Croydon.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 1988)

Keith Vaz: As others have pointed out, we are debating these measures at a time when crime in this country has reached record levels. The reason for those record levels is directly related to the Government's policies. I was astonished to hear the hon. Member for Lancashire, West (Mr. Hind) seek to blame the Labour Government for most of the crimes committed under the Conservatives. The facts speak...

Orders of the Day — Health and Medicines Bill (7 Dec 1987)

Keith Vaz: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Irvine). He claims a special interest in practically every debate. He last spoke in a debate on Scotland, which is strange for a Member who represents a constituency in East Anglia. Conservative Members have made great play of the fact that they are seeking to reform the Health Service. Indeed, one Conservative Member posed...

Orders of the Day — Health and Medicines Bill (7 Dec 1987)

Keith Vaz: If the hon. Lady were to visit Leicestershire health authority she would discover that there are severe problems with the chiropody service and that people cannot get the treatment that they need. But that intervention was not particularly relevant to what I was saying. During the past 20 years, there has been a consensus that the NHS should be supported by both the Government and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Water Charges (2 Dec 1987)

Keith Vaz: Bearing in mind what the Secretary of State said on 21 October this year in the House, is he still considering the possibility of introducing a tap tax? Is he aware that when a window tax was introduced in 1697 it resulted in many people having to brick up their windows and that eventually the tax was abolished in 1851? Is he as concerned as I am at the social implications, expecially for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Dec 1987)

Keith Vaz: Has The Prime Minister had an opportunity to read Saturday's edition of the Leicester Mercury,in which it was announced that £240,000 of Government money would be spent on a private hospital in Leicester? Is she as appalled as I am at that misuse of public money? Does she not agree that if there is money to be spent on the Health Service it should be spent on National Health Service...
