Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 1989)

Andrew Mitchell: Given that health care has been, is and will continue to be provided on the basis of need and not on the basis of ability to pay, does my right hon. Friend agree that the Pavlovian reaction of distress from the Opposition Benches is completely synthetic in view of the fact that the review is designed to inject added efficiency to ensure that resources for patient care go further?

Autumn Statement (12 Jan 1989)

Andrew Mitchell: I subscribe fully to the comments made by my hon. Friends the Members for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Budgen) and for Beaconsfield (Mr. Smith) who referred to the importance of fiscal neutrality and the need to avoid a British loi Monory. Many Conservative Members in favour of fiscal neutrality accept the fact that mortgage interest relief is the exception that proves the rule. I invite...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Child Benefit (19 Dec 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that many Conservative Members do not feel that child benefit as presently constituted is best targeted?

Orders of the Day — Security Service Bill (15 Dec 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer). I am genuinely sorry that there is not more cross-party unity on this measure. The division is between those who know much about the Security Service and the rest of us who stick to important landmarks. The division is not between those who think that this is a good Bill, or those who think it is a bad Bill....

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Rawp (13 Dec 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: In any review of the RAWP procedure, will my right hon. and learned Friend bear in mind that the Nottingham health authority, which covers the areas which he and I represent, is still about 5 per cent. short of the RAWP target? Will he bear in mind that if it is able to make up that percentage, it will be able to do much more in furtherance of the excellent progress that has been made over...

Andrew Mitchell: Has my right hon. Friend had a chance to read the excellent report published on Monday by the Services Committee on access to the precincts of the House?

Will he find time for a debate on the matter either during the overspill or early in the new Session?

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: British Coal Corporation (25 Jul 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: When my right hon. Friend next speaks to the chairman of British Coal, will he make a point of congratulating the Nottinghamshire miners on turning in an operating profit of £48 million during the past year, as well as on the very steep increases in productivity obtained by those miners during the same period? Will he make it clear that the important point is for the industry single-mindedly...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill (14 Jul 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: I do not wish to detain the House overlong, but I do wish to make six brief points. Before I do so, I wish to say how much I enjoyed serving as a member of the Committee that considered the Finance Bill. I found it a worthwhile and interesting experience. Much of the debate in Committee was more constructive than some of the debate to which we have listened tonight. It seemed that there was...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill (14 Jul 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: I must confess that I missed that article in The Guardian on Monday. Although I have not seen the evidence that the hon. Gentleman cited—I try to avoid many articles written by American economists because I find them so difficult to understand—it flies in the face of most other economic evidence that is published in our great newspapers regularly.

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill (14 Jul 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: I was fortunate enough to hear much of the hon. Gentleman's speech. However, I do not accept his interpretation of that evidence. We are now all familiar with the effect of that policy. The hon. Gentleman has misinterpreted the parliamentary answer that he was given and has therefore drawn an erroneous conclusion. I believe that the lowering of the top rates of tax will mean a tremendous...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill (14 Jul 1988)

Andrew Mitchell: Not for the first time this evening, the hon. Gentleman is taking what I am saying out of context. I do not intend to be drawn down that path. Instead, let me move to my fifth point, which concerns company residence and migration rules. As we are major exporters of capital overseas, it is important for the Inland Reveue to be able to tax profit earned overseas, but it is equally important to...
