Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Laker Airways (21 Jun 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: Has the receiver intimated to the Minister the number of repudiated Laker Airways tickets? Will the hon. Gentleman bear this in mind when he contemplates the privatisation of British Airways? Surely, copper-bottomed financial guarantees for ticket holders will be required.

Orders of the Day — Merchant Shipping (Liner Conferences) Bill: Interpretation (11 Jun 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: Reference was made in Committee to the importance of the Merchant Navy to this country and to the contribution that it was making to the Falklands campaign. It is only right that these words should have been reiterated by the Minister and other hon. Members. I should like to associate myself with them. The Bill is, from a party point of view, noncontroversial. I do not know whether the...

Orders of the Day — Merchant Shipping (Liner Conferences) Bill: Self Policing (Article 5) (11 Jun 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: The Minister has said that he has an open mind. Although we wish him well personally, he will not be in his present office for ever. Will he consider imposing an obligation on the Government to report in another place along the lines that he has suggested? I leave that thought with him.

Orders of the Day — Merchant Shipping (Liner Conferences) Bill: Exclusion of Restrictive Practices Law (11 Jun 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: I rise only briefly to associate myself with the comments that have been made by the hon. Member for Batley and Morley (Mr. Woolmer). It is difficult for the House to form a considered view of new clause 2. If one were minded to be obstructive—and one is not—it would be easy to ask the Minister what discussions he has had with the Law Officers and why a Law Officer is not here to brief...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Falkland Islands (10 May 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the Minister for Trade what his Department is doing to ensure the long-term future of Anglo-Argentine trade after a successful outcome of the present situation in the Falkland Islands has been achieved; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Falkland Islands (10 May 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: The Minister will be aware that major British trade and investment interests are at stake. May we have an assurance that when the diplomatic and military aspects of the problem have been settled steps will be taken to safeguard our legitimate and substantial commercial interests, which may have been put at risk?

Wool Textile Industry (29 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: I hope that the Government will think again about these orders, withdraw them and, if necessary, produce something better. Even if the textile industry today were comparatively affluent, if would still be wrong to pursue these orders in the face of some of the industry's structural problems. Two issues arise to be discussed. One is the levels for exemption from the order. The other, which is...

Wool Textile Industry (29 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: I was not in the House at the time. It reported to the now right hon. Member for Huyton (Sir H. Wilson), who was then the President of the Board of Trade. The system that was derived for operating the levy had regard to the realities of the industry and the large number of small firms in it. To say that, as a result of the polls, it can be seen that people do not like making the...

Wool Textile Industry (29 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: Do the Government have powers to end the levy and not merely to alter the exemption?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Civil Aviation Policy (29 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will set out the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards civil aviation in the form of a White Paper.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Civil Aviation Policy (29 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will the Minister reconsider that brief and unsatisfactory reply? Is he aware that if he proceeds to privatise British Airways, despite some substantial losses, surely before that crucial decision—which involves legislation—is taken, he should at least have before him the reports on the future of the airways authorities in Britain and the distribution of airports, which crucially affect...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Laker Airways (1 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is the position of the route licences granted to Laker Airways and held by it prior to the receivership; and if he will make a statement about its current status.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Laker Airways (1 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: No doubt the Minister recalls that on 9 February the Prime Minister spoke about the possibility of de-suspension. Will he confirm that such de-suspension could not take place unless the airline were sold in its entirety as a going concern, with due consideration for the outstanding debts?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Air Travellers (Travel Insurance) (1 Mar 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will the Minister reconsider what he said to the hon. Member for Norwood, (Mr. Fraser), as many hon. Members may feel that Mr. Rowland's promise was unqualified?

Orders of the Day — New Clause 1: Lloyd's Bill (By Order) (3 Feb 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: I follow the hon. and learned Member for Hemel Hempstead (Mr. Lyell) in broadly commending the Bill to the House. I hope that it will make reasonably speedy progress. Although it is before us under the Private Bill procedure, it is important to remember that it is not, in spite of what one has heard, entirely sectional legislation. There is a very strong element of public interest to be...

Orders of the Day — New Clause 1: Lloyd's Bill (By Order) (3 Feb 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: The hon. Gentleman has been in the House long enough to know that he and I would be out of order if we discussed that matter.

Orders of the Day — New Clause 1: Lloyd's Bill (By Order) (3 Feb 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: I am not the sponsor of the Bill or a Minister. The Minister explained the Government's point of view and the Bill has already taken up much time. It is not for the Government, but, presumably, the Chair, to say how much time will be made available. However, it is pretty clear that if the Bill were to be extensively debated night after night there would be insufficient time and it would fall....

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Ship Salvage (1 Feb 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: The Minister has referred to international action. Will he indicate what sort of time scale he envisages? How long will it take before a convention is signed?

Yorkshire Ripper (Investigations) (19 Jan 1982)

Mr David Ginsburg: As well as criticism, there is the question of praise, as the Home Secretary has just said. Can he confirm that there is some reference in the Byford report to the role of Sergeant Rigg of Dewsbury whose decisive action led to the proper investigations into the crime being undertaken?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (Amendment) Bill (14 Dec 1981)

Mr David Ginsburg: Like the hon. Member for Preston, North (Mr. Atkins), I do not propose to detain the House for too long. The Bill is necessary because the Government are both the banker and owner of British Airways and the BAA. We are dealing with large sums of money—£175 million in the case of the BAA and £600 million in the case of British Airways. As has already been said, British Airways face major...
