Mr Bill Tynan: I am grateful for the opportunity to make my maiden speech in this important debate. The history, tradition and procedures of this House are recognised throughout the world.

Members will understand the mixture of...

Orders of the Day — Utilities Bill (31 Jan 2000)

Mr Bill Tynan: Speaking in debates is a new experience for me, and I am glad to have the opportunity to speak in such an important one. The Bill relates to the essentials of life for my constituents. The range of issues it covers will affect utility shareholders and consumers. The Bill is the product of two years of extensive consultation, and the House should recognise the credibility that its proposals...

Orders of the Day — Utilities Bill (31 Jan 2000)

Mr Bill Tynan: The Scottish Executive has dealt with price increases in Scotland. There are variations across the country. In the north, for example, there has been a lack of investment, and the price of water will increase. The increases for all areas were a decision of the Scottish Executive and were accepted by the Scottish Parliament. The Bill seeks to ensure that disadvantaged consumers will benefit....

Orders of the Day — Utilities Bill (31 Jan 2000)

Mr Bill Tynan: That is essential in relation to health and safety. However, wage rates are normally dealt with between unions and employers. It is a question not of subsidising wage rates, but of ensuring that health and safety comes first with employers. I am sure that the unions would agree with that. Joined-up working between GEMA and the HSE is vital. In addition, we need substantial monetary penalties...

Standards and Privileges (1 Mar 2000)

Mr Bill Tynan: rose—

Standards and Privileges (1 Mar 2000)

Mr Bill Tynan: I am reluctant to speak, but I am saddened by the tenor of the debate. Hon. Members who have decided to participate are doing so for the best reasons—to sustain a Member of the House who is in trouble. I appreciate why they are doing it. However, although I am relatively new Member, I also appreciate the fact that the House created a procedure providing for a Committee to investigate such...

Orders of the Day — Home Affairs and Inner Cities (12 Dec 2000)

Orders of the Day — Human Fertilisation and Embryology (19 Dec 2000)

Mr Bill Tynan: I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in an important debate. The fact that so many hon. Members are in the Chamber this evening demonstrates the huge interest in the subject both in the House and in our constituencies. The telephone calls and correspondence that I have received also demonstrate the importance of the issue. If there is a cure for today's dreadful diseases, I...

Opposition Day: Manufacturing Industry (24 Jan 2001)

Mr Bill Tynan: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that more could have been done for the Ravenscraig plant, which is in the area where I live? If those jobs and the industry had been a protected there, we would not be in the current position.

Families (Scotland) (21 Mar 2001)

Mr Bill Tynan: I welcome the opportunity to consider the impact of the Government's policy on families in Scotland. I am surprised that no members of the Scottish National party are here, because the debate is important to the people of Scotland. Opposition Members have condemned measures implemented by the Government because they involve additional regulation, because they do not do enough or because the...

Poverty (Scotland) (22 Mar 2001)

Mr Bill Tynan: I thank you, Mr. Stevenson, for the opportunity to participate, and I begin by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Shettleston (Mr. Marshall) on securing this important debate. He made the wonderful suggestion that we should have a good news week, and I can list the things that I would mention in that regard. Certainly, I am exceptionally proud of the Hamilton water palace,...

Poverty (Scotland) (22 Mar 2001)

Mr Bill Tynan: I concur with everything that the hon. Gentleman said. The research showed that credit unions gave people in the community the opportunity to look after and govern themselves. Credit unions are able to go to people who fall into debt and say, "If you need help, we are part of the community, and good practice operates." During my time in Parliament, I have paid close attention to the...
