Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Gaza and Jericho (27 Jun 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: The right hon. Gentleman understands the importance of the Palestine Liberation Organisation succeeding in managing the economies of both Gaza and Jericho. May I thank the Government for what they have done so far in increasing aid, but ask that much more be done to ensure that that management proves highly successful in the future, because if it does not, there will be trouble for all?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Italy (15 Jun 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Did the Foreign Secretary raise with the Italian Foreign Secretary the concern, which I know is felt on both sides of the House, about the resurgence of neo-fascism in Italy? Did he discuss it at all with his opposite number and does he share the concern that so many of us feel about the growth of fascism and racism in so many parts of Europe?

Business of the House (25 May 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: May we please have an early debate on the awful and continuing menace of vandalism in schools, especially in my constituency where I visited six schools last week? Will the right hon. Gentleman please ask the Secretary of State for Education to recognise the seriousness of this matter for schools whose budgets are already overstretched? Rather than just pay tribute with me, as I am sure the...

Education, Training and Employment (24 May 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: First, on the health and safety regulations, does the Secretary of State agree that it takes no great genius to bury regulations that have long been dead? We are worried about how many live ones will be interred with the bones. Will he give the House an absolute guarantee that no provisions that really protect people at work will be abolished? Secondly, how much has it cost the public for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government (18 May 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: When considering restoring powers to local authorities, will the Minister do so in the light of the 1991 "Index of Local Conditions", which shows relative deprivation in our cities and which the Minister slid into the Library this morning without even providing copies for the parliamentary press? Will he look at what has happened since he took powers away from local authorities such as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Trade Unions (17 May 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Minister accept that in a decent democratic country, workers should have the right to be represented by the unions of their choice?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 May 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Prime Minister accept the view of senior defence chiefs that, as a result of cuts in the defence budget, Britain could no longer mount an operation even on the scale of our part in the Gulf war? Is not it a grotesque betrayal of this country that his party, which has so long and so wrongly accused the Labour party of stripping Britain of its defences, has now done just that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (4 May 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, following my extraordinary and refreshing visits to Saudi Arabia and Oman last week, I was privileged yesterday to attend the multilateral discussions in Qatar about middle east disarmament? Will the right hon. Gentleman join me in congratulating Qatar on its courage in holding the discussions there, Israel and the other participants on taking part and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Unemployment, East Midlands (19 Apr 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Minister accept that there is a greater sense of relative deprivation between the poor and the well-off in the east midlands and elsewhere which, to quote from a Home Office document, has produced a class of person for whom a real job or the prospect of a real job has been absent in all the crucial years of their lives, or does she disagree with the view of that leaked Home Office...

Business of the House (14 Apr 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: May I draw the right hon. Gentleman's attention to early-day motion 1004, which has been signed by more than 50 hon. Members on both sides of the House, condemning the outrageous treatment by the Greek Government of former King Constantine and his family? [That this House condemns the declared intention of the Greek Government to destroy the rights of former King Constantine of the Hellenes...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill: Powers to Stop and Search in Anticipation of Violence (12 Apr 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: The new clause has much good in it, as we all share the same concerns. What worries us is the fact that the Minister is prepared to put only into guidance what should be contained in the Bill. The law has little faith in guidance, because breach of guidance gives no one any rights, whereas breach of a statute or regulations made under a statute is an offence. Breach of a code may be taken...

Prayers: Racism and Anti-semitism (31 Mar 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: It is a good question.

Prayers: Racism and Anti-semitism (31 Mar 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: I thank the hon. Member for Hendon, South (Mr. Marshall) for initiating this debate and for sparing me a little of his time. Above all, I thank him for being a champion of human rights causes—especially those affecting the Jewish community. We are all most grateful to him. All six Conservative Members in the Chamber—most of whom are good personal friends of mine—are involved in the...

Business of the House (24 Mar 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: May we please have an early debate on the reported bizarre and wholly unacceptable suggestion that German troops should take part in the VE day parade? Is he aware that ex-service men such as myself and, I think, most of the British people, especially those who would like and are seeking reconciliation, would regard that as the worst possible way of achieving that reconciliation because it...

Business of the House (17 Mar 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: May we please have an early debate on the decision just announced by British Gas to close its headquarters in the city of Leicester, with a likely loss of up to 2,000 jobs? Should not the House consider how disgraceful it is that a once great public industry is no longer concerned with public service or its employees' jobs, but only with profits for its shareholders?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Unemployment, Leicester (15 Mar 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what is the current level of youth unemployment in the city of Leicester; and what it was in March 1979.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Unemployment, Leicester (15 Mar 1994)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the Minister know that since her Government took office the number of unemployed young people in the county of Leicestershire has nearly doubled? Does she accept the ultimate misery of youngsters who have no jobs, cannot get jobs and have no prospect of ever securing jobs?
