Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Will the Leader of the House give way?

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: That is not a basis on which I would wish to ask the Minister any question that I have.

Select Committees (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Yes, by at least half an hour.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Unemployment (7 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: The Government do recognise that the current unemployment figures are open to question, to put it mildly, and have asked someone called David Steel to report to them by the end of January on the way in which unemployment figures are produced and on whether the method can be improved. As the Government have seen fit to attempt to abolish the Select Committee on Employment at the end of...

Yitzhak Rabin (Tribute) (6 Nov 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: To us all, Yitzhak Rabin epitomised a great statesman, leader, soldier and champion of peace. But he was much more than that. He fought for a Jewish state before there was one; he was one of the creators of Israel. He led the in-gathering of the exiles, bringing people—the survivors of the Holocaust—into Palestine and then Israel. Some of us remember how lonely the world was for Jewish...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: National Lottery (16 Oct 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what plans she now has for future allocation of lottery funds. [35900]

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: National Lottery (16 Oct 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Secretary of State understand that almost the entire British public at every level consider that the way in which the Government have organised this expenditure of public funds is a public disgrace? Will she see whether there are other ways in which other people's money could be spent which they would find acceptable, whatever the Government may think?

Greenbury Report (17 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: In welcoming the right hon. Gentleman to his post, may I welcome the parts of the Greenbury report that reflect the views of the Labour minority and reject those of the Tory majority? Has the right hon. Gentleman read the Employment Select Committee report? Has he any comments to make now on that report? As I presume that he has read the Richard Greenbury report, does he unequivocally agree...

Social and Economic Policy (10 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: I hope that it will not ruin the future of the hon. Member for Stratford-on-Avon (Mr. Howarth) if I say what an excellent, important and interesting speech he made and that I agreed with the vast majority of it. The last time I said that of a Conservative Member's speech he was making his maiden speech. By tradition, one congratulates a person who makes a maiden speech. It is not a tradition,...

Social and Economic Policy (10 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: The hon. Member for Billericay (Mrs. Gorman) concurs. The hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Mr. Duncan), who departed when he knew that I was getting to my feet, and the whole array of Tory backwoodsmen scrunched up their faces and said, "How can this renegade possibly be sitting on our side of the House?" I, for one, will welcome the hon. Gentleman when he crosses the Floor of the House:...

Social and Economic Policy (10 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Perversity sometimes produces some good and if the bringing together of those two Departments produces that result, at least one benefit will have arisen out of what is otherwise a disgraceful change. I hope that the hon. Gentleman is right. Expenditure on training has gone down. When we ask why, the Government say, "The number of unemployed has gone down, so of course we have lowered the...

Social and Economic Policy (10 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: The figures were worked out much more correctly than they are now because they did not have all the exclusions that we have now. If we apply all the exclusions and compare like with like, we find that the figure for 1979 would have been 1.07 million. That is not good. It still represents unemployment of 4 per cent., which is too high, but the correct comparison is that 1.07 million were on...

Social and Economic Policy (10 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: I shall say so tonight as well.

Business of the House (6 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: When can the House expect a statement on the blazing scandal of the abolition of the Department of Employment? The hon. Member for Gravesham (Mr. Arnold) may laugh, but it is no joke to millions of unemployed people, and still less of one to those employed by the Department. Surely we must have a statement. Can the Leader of the House confirm that the Greenbury committee is due to report on...

Business of the House (6 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. Is it in order for any Government to abolish a Department of State without giving the House an opportunity to discuss the matter, without the courtesy of a statement from the relevant Minister and with the Leader of the House treating our request for a statement with such contempt? Surely the House should consider this matter. It is for the Government to...

Pre-school Education (6 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: May I join in the congratulations to the Secretary of State for Education and Employment? Today is my 40th wedding anniversary, and I offer her my warm personal greetings. Should not the Secretary of State also make a statement about the abolition of the sole Department that looks after the interests of unemployed people, which is now to be absorbed—at least in part—in her Department? Is...

Pre-school Education (6 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: rose—

Points of Order (5 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I understand that, at a time when unemployment by the Government's figures is just under 2.5 million and, in reality, probably a million more, the Government are proposing to scrap the Department of Employment. Is it in order for any Government to take such a step without first consulting the House or at least having the courtesy to make a statement to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (5 Jul 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: May I take the same opportunity to thank the Foreign Secretary for many courtesies over many years? He has been a friend and sparring partner for nearly a lifetime. If we have to have a Tory Foreign Secretary, I am sorry that the right hon. Gentleman is leaving his post. At the same time, I thank the Minister of State for his reply. I am sure that he will have the support of almost all...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: War Crimes (26 Jun 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: To ask the Attorney-General what progress has been made on prosecutions under the War Crimes Act 1991. [28734]
