Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Departmental Co-ordination (21 Feb 1996)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the Minister aware that many people take the view that the Government's abolition of the Department of Employment—and with it the Select Committee on Employment, which will not now be in a position to consider the Government's response on training and enterprise councils—has something to do with trying to take the spotlight off employment issues and the existing level of unemployment,...

Business of the House (15 Feb 1996)

Mr Greville Janner: As it is such a long time since the House debated health and safety, will the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to arrange a debate focusing in particular on the safety of children and young people in parks? I ask this because of the pollution of a stream running through Braunstone park in my constituency, which resulted in a number of young people being injured and burnt, and the...

Business of the House (8 Feb 1996)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the right hon. Gentleman recall that I asked last week for a debate on the disgraceful vandalism in schools in my constituency? He said that he would refer the matter to the Secretary of State for Education and Employment. Has he done so, and has he had a reply? He will be appalled, as I was, to learn that three more schools have been vandalised in my constituency in the past...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East Peace Process (7 Feb 1996)

Mr Greville Janner: The Minister met Prime Minister Shimon Peres last week. Will he now express the view—I am sure that it is shared by us all—that Mr. Peres is a man of great wisdom, courage and persistence who is to be congratulated on all that he has done? Did the Prime Minister tell him that it is his view, as well as that of all parties in Israel, that there can be no question of Jerusalem being...

Business of the House (1 Feb 1996)

Mr Greville Janner: Will the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to arrange for an early debate on the miseries inflicted on schools by vandalism and arson? The English Martyrs Roman Catholic school in my constituency has been struck by arsonists three times in the past seven months. It is desperately in need of replacement mobile classrooms, closed circuit television and fencing. The head teacher of Barleycroft...

Oral Answers to Questions: Intergovernmental Conference (10 Jan 1996)

Mr Greville Janner: Hear, hear.

Business of the House (7 Dec 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: The right hon. Gentleman will be aware that the Employment Select Committee is to wind up on 2 March, having had to complete its report on employment statistics by then. The report will have to take into account the independent report by Dr. David Steel, commissioned by the Government. Will the right hon. Gentleman ask the President of the Board of Trade when that report will be available;...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Would the Prime Minister be good enough to look at the awful case of my constituent, Jasmine Sorabjee, aged three and a half, born in this country and ill, whom the Home Office has seen fit to deport to Kenya with her mother? Is not that a cruel, disgraceful decision, devoid of compassion that shows the disgraceful way in which the Government are abusing immigration rules and failing to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: They are not.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Privatisation (27 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what are his proposals for the privatisation of the rail industry. [645]

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Privatisation (27 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Has the right hon. Gentleman read the decision of Mr. Justice Brooke in the case brought by the Save our Railways group against passenger rail franchising, in which the judge granted a judicial review? Does he propose to respect the decision of the High Court and to postpone franchising while the review takes place, or will he once again do what the Government do so often, which is simply...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Staff Remuneration (27 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: To ask the right hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed, representing the House of Commons Commission if he will make a statement on the remuneration of House of Commons staff. [673]

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Staff Remuneration (27 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that House of Commons catering staff do a superb job and should be paid on the same basis, receive equal treatment and be awarded the same pay increases as people in other Departments, and that those increases should have the same benefits? If so, why were average increases for non-catering staff 2.5 per cent. while those for catering staff were equivalent...

Asylum and Immigration (20 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the Minister aware that, as the proud grandson of four people who came to this country from Lithuania and Latvia, I am worried about how the new rules will be applied? The important consideration is not just the rules but the way that they are applied. I wonder whether my grandparents would have been accepted as having a well founded fear of persecution. Will the Home Secretary please...

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: I deeply regret what the Leader of the House has said in such good humour. Will he at least answer the question about the Central Statistical Office report that is due at the end of January and give the requested assurance to members of the Committee, so that we can at least have some hope of completing the work on that report well before the Committee is dissolved?

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his many courtesies over the years, and not least for what he has said today. Surely he accepts, however, that the Minister who responds to the report will be the Minister in charge of the Department that is now dealing with the matter concerned. If the report is on employment statistics, for instance, it will be dealt with by the Treasury; if it is on...

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: I am sorry to dash the hopes of the Leader of the House, but it is the view of nine of the 11 members of the Select Committee on Employment that the so-called "compromise" offered by the Government will not enable the Committee to do its work within the time set; nor will it allow the House to monitor properly the work that was previously within the ambit of the Department of Employment. My...

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: I accept that, and I thank the right hon. Gentleman, who is always courteous even when he is wrong. I shall continue reading the very important paragraph from the report, which states: We"— the Select Committee on Procedure— therefore accept that this principle must be tempered by some element of flexibility in the boundaries between committees and by adequate provision for cooperation...

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Yes; I will get on with it. I will tell hon. Members exactly what I think. I think that this is a deliberate move by the Government, as part of their policy to remove the Department of Employment and the spotlight on unemployment and on the work that is being done on workfare. They are transferring different aspects of work, one by one, into a long series of Departments, so as to spread them...

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: The end of the Session is tomorrow, which is precisely why the debate is tonight—so that there will not be enough hon. Members in the House to vote on it, so that the payroll vote may steamroller any effort that we make. The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right and I thank him so much for drawing attention to my error. We want the Committee to continue its work until the end of the...
