Orders of the Day — Jobseekers Bill (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Too long.

Orders of the Day — Jobseekers Bill (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: It is always a privilege to participate in a debate with the hon. Member for Norfolk, North (Sir R. Howell). He can be relied upon to produce a pungent, independent and articulate approach. What astonishes me so often, knowing his approach, his background and his party, is how often I agree with what he says and how often his colleagues disagree with him. I want to begin with the right to...

Orders of the Day — Jobseekers Bill (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Yes, entitled.

Orders of the Day — Jobseekers Bill (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: By a decent, civilised society and that is why I am in politics. We should try to provide in society the right for people to work. The hon. Member for Norfolk, North is correct. He was also correct to use the word "cruelty" in respect of the effect of unemployment on people's lives. It is cruel to say to people, "We will give you training for work" when there is no work for them to do when...

Orders of the Day — Jobseekers Bill (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Because it will not destroy jobs; because it has not destroyed jobs in Europe; because disabled people have a right to decent treatment; because people have a right to minimum holidays and because this is the only uncivilised part of the European Community which refuses to recognise those basic decent rights for which we stand in this place. That is why. I am looking forward to a Labour...

Orders of the Day — Jobseekers Bill (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: If I were to wake up and find that, I would do so with joy because we should be serving our people in this country. We do not have much time to do that. The Secretary of State said that there is no God-given right to be idle and to live off others. Indeed. No Opposition Member would wish anyone to be voluntarily idle, to be lazy or scroungers and not to work and to live off others. However,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 1995)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Prime Minister agree that, in the matter of war crimes, we are talking about personal involvement in mass murder? As the House has repeatedly approved the principle in the War Crimes Act, will he confirm that if—but only if—there is sufficient evidence against individuals of complicity in that murder, they will be prosecuted no matter how long they have managed to evade justice?

Prison Security (19 Dec 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: When the Home Secretary re-examines security measures, will he look at the disgraceful overcrowding in prisons, which results in prison officers having to look after prisoners in impossible circumstances? At Leicester prison, the number of people certified as the normal accounting level is 194. I am told that today, the prison has 345 inmates, and that there have been seven suicides in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty (2 Nov 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: In recognising that peace throughout the middle east is important, did the Minister meet with Mr. Nashashibi, the Palestinian Finance Minister? If so, and even if not, will he consider how Britain can help the Palestinians to re-establish themselves and their administration, police and education, because without that the entire process may collapse?

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: War Crimes Act 1991 (31 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Will the Attorney-General recognise that what the hon. Member for Hendon, South {Mr. Marshall) has said is right? The longer time goes on, the more difficult it becomes to prosecute people even if there is sufficient evidence of personal involvement in mass murder. What sort of time scale does the right hon. and learned Gentleman have in mind for these cases to come to him?

Foreign Office and ODA Spending Plans (24 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: It was a classic story.

Foreign Office and ODA Spending Plans (24 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: I am sure that the hon. Member for Croydon, South (Mr. Ottaway) will forgive me if I do not follow him down the path of contraception. Instead, I want to stick to the absolutely first-class Select Committee report, to which the Committee received a very second-rate answer from the Government. I have visited vast numbers of diplomatic posts in my work with the Employment Select Committee, or...

Job Seeker's Allowance (24 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: The Secretary of State said in his statement that the Government's strategy is to generate more jobs and that it is "bearing fruit". As he has taken the lead over the Employment Secretary in what is obviously an employment matter, can he answer this extraordinary conundrum: why has the Government's successful strategy resulted in an alleged reduction in the number of unemployed people but a...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill: After Clause 136 (20 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am one of the inhabitants of No. 7 Millbank. I always have to run over to vote. When I inquired, Madam Speaker said that, when it is a first vote, she does, as a matter of discretion, allow extra time before the doors are locked. If it is a matter of discretion, colleagues can be locked out, as has happened to hon. Members on both sides...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Part-time Workers (18 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Minister not know that, as a result of recent decisions in European courts, part-timers in Britain are already protected against unfair dismissal and redundancy? Will the Government now make that clear, if not by answering my letters to that effect, by introducing legislation in the next Session, so that we comply with European law and get rid of that discrimination?

Kuwait (17 Oct 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Given that Jordan and Israel were on different sides during the Gulf war, might this be a good time to welcome the agreement for peace entered into today by the two countries? Will the Minister give a clear and unequivocal guarantee that we shall play no part in the removal of sanctions unless and until the Iraqis not only release the names of the Kuwaiti prisoners, but release the prisoners...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Repairs (12 Jul 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will allocate extra funds for the repair of schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Repairs (12 Jul 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the Minister aware that a great number of schools throughout the country are in a disgraceful state of disrepair, largely because local authorities do not have the money to add to central grants to put their schools in a fit state to receive our children? Will the Minister consider that matter and especially the cost of repairs caused by vandalism, which is causing chaos in Leicester...

Business of the House (7 Jul 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Will the right hon. Gentleman please assure the House that if the rail dispute is not settled before the House rises, we will have an opportunity to discuss the principles involved? On Tuesday, the chairman of Railtrack told the Employment Select Committee not only that the Government are 100 per cent. shareholders in Railtrack, but that the Secretary of State for Transport sets the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Redundant Service Personnel (28 Jun 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: When the Minister is considering the re-employment of service personnel, whether at the Wiltshire TEC or anywhere else, does she put that into the overall structure? Has she or the Secretary of State discussed the sacking and redundancies among service personnel with the Secretary of State for Defence? If so, how many service personnel has the Secretary of State for Defence said are likely to...
