Business of the House (30 Apr 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Will the Leader of the House ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to make a statement on the A330 and A340 Airbus project? Is he aware that more than 400 A320s have been sold, but we guess that 200 sales were lost because of delays? It looks as though we have lost some sales of A330 and A340 aircraft including sales to Alitalia. Will the right hon. Gentleman please urgently...

Helicopter Orders (9 Apr 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that despite the long delay and the orders that have now been announced, we shall still be 50 per cent. short? It reminds me a little of 1939, when we had the appropriate aircraft but not enough of them. The right hon. Gentleman ought to bear that in mind. Will he take it from me that unless there is collaboration with Europe we shall lose face? If he...

Business of the House (9 Apr 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Will the Leader of the House take it from me that there has never before been a time when hon. Members on both sides of the House who are interested in aviation have seen the American civil aviation industry so worried? It is worried because it sees a real threat from the A320, and a positive approaching threat from the A330 and A340. Should we not avoid losing our lead, and make adequate and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services>: Hospital Beds (7 Apr 1987)

Opposition Day: Health Care and Services for the Elderly (25 Feb 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: I should declare an interest at the outset because I am an old-age pensioner and, therefore, one could say that is an example of enlightened self-interest. I am pleased to say that I am enjoying good health. I would like to strike an optimistic note. I would like the Minister to answer the three issues I am going to raise. I want to talk about a continuing interest I have had over 20 years...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Helicopters (24 Feb 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Does the Minister agree that AST 404 was the product of a study, but that it did not produce helicopters?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Air Force (24 Feb 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Is the Minister unable to combine a little bit of staff duties for pilots with some flying experience as well? Is that beyond the planning schemes?

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Will the Minister take it from me that we wish him well in his endeavours, but that he needs an awful lot of luck to be successful?

Opposition Day: Disabled People (17 Feb 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: After 22 years involvement in the House in respect of disability, I shall now make my shortest speech on the subject. It is heartwarming that the disabled people are concerned about prevention. I am delighted to be associated with the Spastics Society's move to prevent disability in the young. The society has realised the suffering caused by disability, and it is willing to make a sacrifice...

Opposition Day: Disabled People (17 Feb 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: On a point of clarity, I can tell the hon. Gentleman that the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 went through the House at about 4 o'clock on the last morning before the general election. The implementation of that Act, known as the Alf Morris Act, was up to the Conservative Government.

Opposition Day: Disabled People (17 Feb 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: I can see the problem and I can see the value of the discussion. When the Minister has had the discussions and the sums have been fixed—I assume that this will be in the not too distant future—will he tell the Chancellor of the Exchequer that some of the billions to be given away would be going to a good cause if they were spent on the implementation of my hon. Friends Act?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Community Care (10 Feb 1987)

J. E. Hanger and Co. Ltd. (29 Jan 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Does the Minister agree that this dispute has probably more to do with McColl, the re-signing of the contract with the DHSS and the case now before the court about contracts? Does he not think that drastic needs require drastic action? Will he try to approach the chairman of BTR and tell him that this dispute is not doing his company any good at all?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: EC-USA (Trade Dispute) (28 Jan 1987)

Mr Lewis Carter-Jones: Is the Minister aware that he would have the support of the entire House if he did not allow the negotiations to prevent his Department from providing speedy support for the A330 and A340 Airbus? Is he aware that his Department's support of the A320 Airbus, which preserved that high technology, is likely to be repaid in the very near future?
