Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Channel Tunnel (14 Dec 1981)

Mr David Ginsburg: In the light of that encouraging information, will the Minister tell the Secretary of State that, in the present state of the economy, the need to make progress in constructing the Channel tunnel is urgent, as, if it is not built soon, it never will be?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Yorkshire and Humberside Region (29 Jun 1981)

Mr David Ginsburg: The justification for the debate is the continuing serious situation and lack of an effective policy by the Government in reacting to it. The speech of the hon. Member for Bridlington (Mr. Townend) bears out the seriousness of the situation. I was interested to hear the hon. Member talk of the unemployment statistics in his area and refer to the inconsistency of the Government in the...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Mar 1981)

Mr David Ginsburg: Apart from the right hon. Member for Stafford and Stone (Sir H. Fraser) the hon. Member for Bexleyheath (Mr. Townsend), joined a string of Conservative Members who are critical of the Budget. It was a moving speech. I hope that the Chief Secretary will tell the Prime Minister something about the feelings in his party about the Budget. After many years in the House I have seldom experienced a...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Mar 1981)

Mr David Ginsburg: I noted what the right hon. Gentleman said about this applying to people who are not ordinarily resident in this country. He will be aware that there is a category of person who has the right of entry or the right of residence—

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Mar 1981)

Mr David Ginsburg: I think that my question is in order. The Minister will be aware that there is a category of person who, whether he is ordinarily resident here or not, has the right of entry and residence under immigration law. Will these restrictions apply to that category of person?

Orders of the Day — Housing (25 Nov 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: It has been agreed during the debate on the Gracious Speech that we are going through a serious recession. What is not agreed are the steps needed to see us through and out of the recession. One point which should be crystal clear is that, to the extent that society imposes burdens in consequence of the recession, those burdens should fall on those best able to bear them and not on the...

Orders of the Day — Housing (25 Nov 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Orders of the Day — Housing (25 Nov 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Mr. Ginsburg rose—

Orders of the Day — Housing (25 Nov 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Housing (25 Nov 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Again, I ask the right hon. Gentleman to give way. This is very important.

Orders of the Day — Housing (25 Nov 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way. He has just criticised the Labour Party for its failure, when in Government, to raise council house rents. I assume that he is referring to the year 1977. He will be aware that there was a similar event in 1973 when council house rents were not raised. The right hon. Gentleman may be aware that there was a pay pause in operation on both...

Public Expenditure (7 May 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: A noteworthy feature of the debate has been the anxiety expressed by hon. Members from all parties about the Government's policy. In particular, I must mention three speeches by Conservative Members. I refer to the speeches of the right hon. Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann), the right hon. and learned Member for Hexham (Mr. Rippon) and the right hon. Member for Worthing (Mr. Higgins). The...

Yorkshire (21 Apr 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: The hon. Member for Howden (Sir P. Bryan) made a point about unfair competition. This is something to which I should like to draw the Minister's attention once again. The wellbeing of the area that a Member of Parliament represents must always be a matter of supreme importance to him. Yorkshire Members have long pleaded in this Chamber for a fairer deal for their constituents. I suppose that...

Yorkshire (21 Apr 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: No, I will not give way. Normally I always give way, but this is a very short debate and many other hon. Members wish to speak. I cannot over-emphasise how dangerous the position will become. The effects of the textile recession are inexorable rather than sensational. It is rare for a mill which closes to re-open. Occasionally a factory building lives on as a provider of labour but always of...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (1 Apr 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Given that sterling is a petro-currency, and given the importance of oil in the constellation of sterling, how does my right hon. Friend think that such an instruction to the Governor would weaken the pound?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (1 Apr 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Does not the hon. Member for Croydon, South (Sir W. Clark) agree that apart from cutting the PSBR it was open to the Government to raise taxation rather than reduce it? That surely would have been a move in the right direction.

Telephone Calls (Interception) (1 Apr 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will the Home Secretary seriously consider the possibility of another Birkett inquiry? He will recollect that Mr. Gordon Walker, as he then was, expressed a serious reservation in the Birkett report, in that he took the view that this exceptional power should be reserved for matters involving counter espionage and the security of the State and did not favour its use for routine police matters...

East-West Relations (28 Jan 1980)

Mr David Ginsburg: Like the hon. Member for Winchester (Mr. Browne), I wish to concentrate my remarks on a reference to the motives for Russian foreign policy. However, I should like to preface those remarks with a brief comment about the Olympic Games because there has been a difference of opinion in the debate. Judging by the history of the past 30 or 40 years, if a gesture of non-participation in the Olympic...

Orders of the Day — Regional Aid (13 Nov 1979)

Mr David Ginsburg: Apart from the hon. Member for Enfield, North (Mr. Eggar), there has been a broad consensus. Considerable anxiety has been expressed about the state of the industry. It is a matter of regret that we listened to a speech made by the Minister which seemed extremely complacent and partisan. I hope that the Minister who replies will have something better to say.

Orders of the Day — Regional Aid (13 Nov 1979)

Mr David Ginsburg: No, I shall not give way. The Minister did not give way to me and I have limited time. My constituency is synonymous with wool. There has been considerable anxiety. We are no strangers to the decline in the wool and textile industry. The constituency experienced the crisis which hit the heavy wool part of the industry after the war. Before the war and after the war there was the decline of...
