Road Traffic (NHS Charges) Bill: Women (8 Mar 1999)

Rosie Winterton: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way, because it is important to clarify one or two points. As has been said, 1.3 million women will benefit from the national minimum wage and women will also benefit from the fairness at work proposals. Will the Conservative party go into the next election saying that it would reverse the national minimum wage proposals, which would effectively cut...

Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Affairs Committee (1 Mar 1999)

Rosie Winterton: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. Will inquiries by the Committee be considered by the whole House, particularly inquiries into issues such as the distribution of European structural funds, which would affect not only areas such as South Yorkshire in the English region of Yorkshire and Humberside, but Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?

Oral Answers to Questions — Territorial Army (Doncaster) (22 Feb 1999)

Rosie Winterton: My hon. Friend will be aware that the local Territorial Army squadron, the King's Own Yorkshire Yeomanry, has welcomed the announcements about the continuation at Danum road of the cadet force, and I am sure that it will welcome today's announcement. However, is he aware of the concern that the Danum road centre may be open for perhaps only two evenings a week and the occasional weekend? Is...

Rosie Winterton: If he will make a statement on the implementation of the minimum income guarantee for pensioners. [68011]

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Minimum Income Guarantee (8 Feb 1999)

Rosie Winterton: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply, particularly because about 9,000 pensioners in my constituency will benefit from the minimum income guarantee. However, Age Concern and the citizens advice bureau have raised a number of concerns, some of which he has addressed, in respect of the fact that thousands of people are unaware of their entitlement to income support. They will therefore be...

Orders of the Day — Social Security (28 Jan 1999)

Rosie Winterton: Does the hon. Gentleman appreciate that the injustice suffered by Mr. Smith has been experienced by others for some 50 years, yet his Government did nothing to sort it out? I said that we should take this opportunity to look forward to try to put right the injustice of many years. I did not see any evidence of his Government improving Mr. Smith's situation.

Orders of the Day — Social Security (28 Jan 1999)

Rosie Winterton: I am very grateful for the opportunity to speak in today's debate, especially because I know that so many of the changes that we are making—I am thinking of changes to child benefit and pensions and of people who pay class 1 national insurance contributions—will make a real difference to many of my constituents who are low paid, living in poverty or unemployed. Many are living...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces (Civil Emergencies) (25 Jan 1999)

Rosie Winterton: As my hon. Friend may be aware, the Scarborough barracks site in Doncaster, currently the home of 219 Squadron Royal Logistic Corps, has been identified by the civil powers for use as a temporary mortuary in the event of a major disaster in South Yorkshire. Will my hon. Friend assure me that that role will be taken into account in any review of the continued use of such sites?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Integrated Transport Policy (12 Jan 1999)

Rosie Winterton: Those are welcome measures, but can my right hon. Friend assure us that the role of the bus in the integrated transport policy will be to meet social as well as commercial needs? People—especially in my constituency, and especially elderly people—currently feel that they are being given a raw deal by bus operators. It is difficult for them even to travel to local shops and...

Rosie Winterton: If he will make a statement on the use made of the proceeds of the windfall tax. [61754]

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Windfall Tax (10 Dec 1998)

Rosie Winterton: Is my hon. Friend aware that, in areas such as South Yorkshire, the public utilities used to have a good track record on training, exceeding their requirements? Are the privatised utilities participating in the new deal by providing training opportunities? If not, what action will the Treasury take to encourage them to participate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Manufacturing Industry (3 Dec 1998)

Rosie Winterton: In seeking to create a stable economic environment, will my hon. Friend look at the situation that is faced by companies such as Bridon International in Doncaster, which is extremely concerned about dumping, through cheap imports, of steel wire ropes from countries such as India, South Korea and Mexico? What action can her Department take to assist companies such as Bridon's in my constituency?

Rosie Winterton: When he last met his European counterparts to discuss Agenda 2000 in relation to enlargement. [54299]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Agenda 2000 (27 Oct 1998)

Rosie Winterton: Is my hon. Friend aware that the rail port in my constituency of Doncaster provides rail freight services from the north of England to Europe? Does she agree that, to protect the environment and regenerate areas like South Yorkshire, the development of European rail links should be a high priority in any discussions on Agenda 2000 and European Union enlargement?

Public Expenditure (16 Jul 1998)

Rosie Winterton: I am glad to have an opportunity to speak because I want to reflect the widespread support felt in my constituency for the Chancellor's statement on Tuesday. That support comes because of the clear commitment to invest in public services. My constituency is in the heart of South Yorkshire and has suffered from years of decline in the coal, steel and railway industries and from years of...
