Orders of the Day — Interception of Communications Bill: Scope of Warrants (2 Apr 1985)

West Midlands (15 Mar 1985)

Mr John Forrester: The House is indebted to my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick) for initiating this debate because the region has a continuing problem, although we wish that it had not. He pointed out the realistic future as the Opposition see it. Conservative Members' speeches could be described as being of the "whistling in the dark" variety. If there is pessimism, it is because we...

Regional Policy (17 Jan 1985)

Mr John Forrester: When the Government announced that they would review the regional aid programme, they got a lot of support. Many people acknowledged that there were weaknesses in the previous system. In some cases too much money had been given to capital-intensive industries, with little effect on employment. There was some job shuffling between areas to take advantage of grants, although it is difficult to...

Sport and Recreation (9 Jul 1984)

Mr John Forrester: I join in congratulating the hon. Member for Leicestershire, North-West (Mr. Ashby) on choosing this subject for debate, and wish the hon. Member for Lewisham, East (Mr. Moynihan) good luck at Los Angeles. The speakers have dealt with a wide range of topics, but I shall contain my remarks to four or five points and deal with them briefly in view of the time. Everyone now accepts that, at a...

Sport and Recreation (9 Jul 1984)

Mr John Forrester: I am grateful for that. I hope that the Minister will give the scheme his full support and encouragement.

Adjournment (Easter and May Day) (24 Mar 1983)

Mr John Forrester: I am grateful for this opportunity to raise a problem that is causing grave concern to my constituents—the difficulties associated with illegal itinerant caravan dwellers and the lack of effective legislation to deal with them. I hope that, before May day, the Leader of the House will promise to bring forward legislation to help local authorities to deal with the problem. It is an acute...

Opposition Day: Unemployment (West Midlands) (22 Feb 1983)

Mr John Forrester: The hon. Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Mrs. Knight) chided Labour Members for choosing this subject for debate and questioned why. The answer is that unemployment is the most important issue in Britain today. It refuses to go away despite the fact that the Government may wish it to do so. As one famous comedian said—whether it was Tommy Cooper, Eric Morecambe or Ernie Wise I do not...

Orders of the Day — Administration of Justice Bill [Lords]: New Clause 6 (19 Oct 1982)

Mr John Forrester: I wish to make a short contribution on behalf of Stoke-on-Trent without going over all the arguments that have been eloquently put forward. Before 1974, Stoke-on-Trent was one of the cities and county boroughs with its own magistrates' courts committee. It feels, like so many others, that it has been demoted under the Local Government Act 1972 and that it is dominated by rural views and...

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Household Products (Child Safety) Packaging Bill (29 Jan 1982)

Mr John Forrester: I omitted to say that that was a slight risk, but the legislation in the United States of America seems to get over that problem.

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Household Products (Child Safety) Packaging Bill (29 Jan 1982)

Mr John Forrester: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The Bill has the twin virtues of brevity and understandable language, although, in view of what the Minister said about the previous Bill, parliamentary draftsmen may look upon that as a drawback rather than a virtue. Nobody can be anything but appalled to read of the astonishing number of household tragedies and the misery that is...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Encroachments on Local Government Autonomy (12 Nov 1981)

Mr John Forrester: There have been many periods of strain between local government and national Government, but relations have never been as bad as they are now. The Secretary of State has welded a united band of councillors, of all political persuasions, that would not have been thought possible years ago. They stand united against the Whitehall juggernaut. The message that we received from the...

West Midlands (Industry) (20 Jun 1980)

Mr John Forrester: Many hon. Members have reminded the House that not long ago the heart of the West Midlands was one of the prosperous areas of this country and was on a par with the South-East. That is no longer the position. Over the whole region, industry has been diverted away by the policies of successive Governments which have led to a decline in job prospects—a situation which, unfortunately,...

Bill Presented: Rate Support Grant (14 Dec 1978)

Mr John Forrester: In the past few years the Staffordshire Members of Parliament on both sides of the House have been united in their concern about the way in which the rate support grant has affected Stafford- shire and its services. The right hon. Member for Stafford and Stone (Mr. Fraser) said earlier that Ministers had listened willingly and patiently to the complaints we put to them. It is, therefore,...

Rate Support Grant Order (15 Dec 1977)

Mr John Forrester: The right hon. and learned Member for Hertfordshire, East (Sir D. Walker-Smith) has given another example of his detailed knowledge of this subject, but, in response to the appeal from the Chair, I shall not follow what he said about the presence of hon. Members in Strasbourg, although a visit there may be very pleasant, indeed. The hon. Member for Henley (Mr. Heseltine) failed to convince...
