Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: Did my right hon. and learned Friend see the recent article by Samuel Brittan arguing that some fiscal stimulus could be given to the economy now without prejudicing the Government's monetary policy?

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply.

Orders of the Day — Law and Order (25 Mar 1982)

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: I listened with great interest to the hon. Member for Hammersmith, North (Mr. Soley), but I cannot agree with him that the Government have undermined the social fabric of this country. One cannot undermine the social fabric of a country, even if his reasoning is right, in two and a half years. The hon. Gentlemen has been talking complete rubbish. All politicians are guilty of...

Orders of the Day — Law and Order (25 Mar 1982)

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: I accept that the jury decided on a verdict of manslaughter. However, I am trying to point out that there is widespread concern about such crimes in the West Midlands. The daughter is indifferent about how the verdict was reached and the system that brought it about. She has lost her father and those two guilty men will probably serve only four years. That is the point. My main concern is...

Will my hon. Friend therefore...

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: Is my hon. Friend aware that there is still concern among employers that the new self-certification scheme could lead to an increase in abuse of sick leave? What safeguards have been incorporated in the new scheme? When similar schemes were introduced in other European countries, were they followed by an increase in absenteeism?

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will review the role of the wages councils and minimum wages legislation in the light of the serious problems of youth unemployment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Minimum Wages (2 Mar 1982)

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: Does my right hon. Friend agree that in many industries wages councils have set minimum wage levels above the rates that enable people to qualify for the young workers' scheme? Is there not a danger that that scheme will be undermined by the activities of the wages councils? Does he further agree that the employment prospects for young people in general would be greatly improved if minimum...

Friend the Home Secretary urge the courts to...

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, provided Armitage's recommendations are carried out, the introduction of 40-tonne lorries will bring environmental benefits to Britain, as well as cost benefits to the consumer? Does he further agree that if we do not allow a heavier lorry in Britain it will be a serious blow to the British truck industry, which needs a domestic market to develop such a...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Economic Policy of the Government (28 Jan 1982)

Mr Jocelyn Cadbury: I listened with great interest to the hon. Member for Huddersfield, East (Mr. Sheerman), but I cannot agree with his analysis of the recent high level of unemployment in this country. It is facile to blame our level of unemployment on two and a half years of Conservative policies. The 3 million unemployed are the victims of Britain's industrial weakness, which goes back over many decades. It...
