Petitions: Children (Sexual Exploitation) (11 Mar 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I have the honour to present this petition to the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. This is the first volume of nine similar volumes. In 1994, I presented a petition on behalf of the National Council of Women. The petition reads: The Humble Petition of Members of Action for Children Campaign, the National Council of Women of Great...

Packaging Waste (3 Mar 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: My hon. Friend the Member for Faversham (Sir R. Moate) has been hearing from small businesses. I have the honour of being chairman of the all-party retail industry group. My hon. Friends will be aware that, under the regulations —the hon. Friend the Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Meacher) referred to it—retailers have 47 per cent. of the recovery obligations. With the packers and fillers,...

Revenue Support Grant (Kent) (5 Feb 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I know that the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours) would not wish to malign me. I am a Kent Member, and have been, with a very short break, since 1970. Would the hon. Gentleman care to repeat the point that Kent Members have never rebelled? Was he in the House when the Government of the day—

Revenue Support Grant (Kent) (5 Feb 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I am heartened by the pledge my hon. Friend has just made on behalf of the Conservative members of Kent county council. The area that my hon. Friend the Member for Gillingham (Mr. Couchman) and I represent is about to become a unitary authority. That is a sign that the area is the largest conurbation in Kent and its most industrial part. It unwittingly contributed to the peace dividend when...

Revenue Support Grant (Kent) (5 Feb 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: It is an indescribable insult to Medway residents that the list of proposed cuts includes two retained fire stations and another fairly large station in Stroud—three fire stations in one area. We are talking about the largest conurbation and, indeed, the largest industrial area in Kent, which is about to become a unitary authority. It is disgraceful to do that to three fire stations.

Hunger Strikers (Rochester Prison) (29 Jan 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: Has the percentage of people detained among asylum seekers—or alleged asylum seekers—declined since our introduction of the new rules last year? It is my recollection that it was said at that time that it was less than 2 per cent.; can my hon. Friend confirm that it is now about 1 per cent.? Did any of the six who are so tragically refusing liquid refreshment arrive in this country for a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Mid Kent Water Company (22 Jan 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: To ask the President of the Board of Trade when he expects to make a decision on the Monopolies and Mergers Commission report on the bid for Mid Kent Water by General Utilities and Saur Water Services. [10587]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Mid Kent Water Company (22 Jan 1997)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I thank my hon. Friend for that prompt reply, and I welcome the decision. In view of the fact that, collectively, the two companies have a 38 per cent. holding in Mid Kent, may I ask my hon. Friend what reassurances he can give to the company that that situation will not happen all over again?

Local Government (Structural Change) (4 Jul 1996)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: It is most kind of my hon. Friend to allow me this interjection. I should like to correct the assertion made by the hon. Member for Newbury (Mr. Rendel) that the order was not a democratic response to the people of Rochester. Five Liberal members of the local authority joined the members of other parties in support of the proposal for a unitary authority. I am sure that the logic of the rest...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Tourism (1 Jul 1996)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I was very pleased to hear my hon. Friend say that he is aware that Chatham dockyard probably has the largest number of historic buildings on one site in the south-east. Will he note that these buildings in the historic end of Chatham dockyard are all listed and that, consequently, we would not permit anybody to let them fall into disrepair? However, we shall need more money to help us to...

Channel Tunnel Rail Link (29 Feb 1996)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I was pleased to hear my right hon. Friend assure the House that the conditions imposed on the bid would include all the proposals agreed to by the Select Committee—that the Government had accepted them all. My right hon. Friend said that other matters could be raised during the Bill's remaining stages, including its consideration in the House of Lords. Does that apply to further petitions...

Medway Towns (Relief Road) (2 Feb 1996)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Gillingham (Mr. Couchman) for letting me have a short time to speak, after his comprehensive history of this notorious and disappointing transport matter. He explained how important the road is to our constituents in the Medway towns. That shows how interdependent we are in our road structure, which is vital industrially. My hon. Friend...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Local Transport Provision (15 Jan 1996)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: Despite transport supplementary grant settlement being provided for the Wainscott northern bypass, Labour and Liberal-controlled Kent county council has delayed the start of the work and delayed issuing tenders. Why on earth did the Department not ring-fence the money so that the council could not indulge in such political chicanery?

Waste Disposal (10 Jan 1996)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to a debate initiated by my hon. Friend the Member for Faversham (Sir R. Moate) because we are subject to the same waste disposal plan. I agree with the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Sheerman) that the best debates start with a vested interest in a matter concerning one's constituency. Within a few miles of each other in my constituency are two...

Petition: Child Prostitution and Pornography (20 Nov 1995)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I beg leave to present the following petition. To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.The Humble Petition of the National Council of Women of Great Britain at its Centenary Conference assembled in the City of Nottingham, from 10–12 October 1995, in conjunction with Action for Children Campaign,ShewethThat we, the...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 3: Channel Tunnel Rail Link Bill (1 Nov 1995)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I am grateful to get your help in this, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and will try to comply with your injunction. I ask my right hon. and hon. Friends on the Front Bench two particular points. First, today on the front of a national tabloid appeared a report—I do not know whether it was leaked—which concluded that the M2 road widening between junctions 1 and 4 has been postponed. I remind my...

Defence Equipment (13 Jul 1995)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: My right hon. Friend will understand that, although his announcement may be good news for Yeovil, it is not good news for Medway because we hoped very much that the GEC-Marconi Avionics Cobra Venom would win the battle. It is extremely unusual for the Treasury to spurn the lowest tender, so one must be impressed by the service chiefs who insisted that the Apache was their favourite option....

Business of the House (11 May 1995)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the way in which the Nolan report was made available to right hon. and hon. Members today? Will he direct this question to whoever is responsible for passing information to right hon. and hon. Members? Instead of the report being handed out as usual by the Vote Office in a perfectly competent and efficient way, the small Corridor next to the Members Board is...

Select Committees (20 Apr 1995)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: The hon. Gentleman has asked me to intervene and I am nothing if not obedient. I know him to be a man who feels strongly about things. May I take up one point that he has made? My hon. Friend the Member for Tatton (Mr. Hamilton) was sitting in at the deliberations, but, as things are at present, he was entitled to. Do I understand from the hon. Gentleman, who is a great constitutionalist,...

Local Government Reorganisation (England) (2 Mar 1995)

Mrs Peggy Fenner: I thank my right hon. Friend. Is he aware that the people who live in the rural areas of my constituency were not overwhelmed by the idea of unitary authority status? However, I am in fairness bound to say that the Medway towns, which I think comprise the largest conurbation in Kent and which deserve the review that he is going to grant, think that they can form a good unitary authority. I...
