Unemployment (Yorkshire and Humberside) (22 Feb 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I shall not follow the hon. Member for Bradford, North (Mr. Ford) into the merits and charms of living and working in Bradford. I shall leave him to his pleasures there, because I represent part of a larger city nearby. We still have the greatest respect for all those who move in and around Bradford. I wish to spread the debate a little wider. Time is short and many hon. Members wish to...

Unemployment (Yorkshire and Humberside) (22 Feb 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I am trying to be extremely brief. I hope that the hon. Gentleman has the opportunity to speak later. Orders can be won, not only in Yorkshire but in the United Kingdom, only in the face of keen world competition. Price, quality and delivery must all be right. Many of us have complained about, and tried to highlight, the image of the British working population. Our capacity is easily...

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Control of Expenditure (Reform) Bill (28 Jan 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I hope that the hon. Member—my constituent—is not denigrating the efforts of our colleague the hon. Member for Batley and Morley (Mr. Woolmer), who on his own has pursued a matter which is now with the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Control of Expenditure (Reform) Bill (28 Jan 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I join in the congratulations to the promoters of the Bill for giving us all the opportunity to discuss parliamentary control of expenditure. I do not wish to introduce too sour a note of discord into the mutual congratulations that have been flying about one to the other so far, but I believe there is a little more to be said about parliamentary control of expenditure. To use phrases such as...

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Control of Expenditure (Reform) Bill (28 Jan 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: That process exists now with the individual auditors and accountants of the nationalised undertakings. Each year they check every dealing of the nationalised undertaking and they certify on their accounts what they have done or what they have not been able to find out. The difference with the activities of the Monopolies and Mergers Commission, which has been derided so far by implication,...

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Control of Expenditure (Reform) Bill (28 Jan 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I am merely making the point, which I am sure the right hon. Gentleman understands, that that is an additional power to check the authenticity, the honesty, of an authority's accounts. We are seeking honest, open administration wherever public money is spent. I mention two more powers. One is very real and could pose many problems for all our nationalised undertakings in the future were the...

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Control of Expenditure (Reform) Bill (28 Jan 1983)

Mr Donald Kaberry: The point is that it is the way in which we have sought to control, and do now control, our nationalised undertakings without reference to what may go on. It is a very different system in the United States of America. All these controls will remain, but there will be substituted over and above that the additional powers interpreted by the Comptroller and Auditor General himself, going in at...

Yorkshire (21 Apr 1980)

Mr Donald Kaberry: On behalf of all of my hon. Friends, I should like to congratulate the hon. Member for Rotherham (Mr. Crowther) on his maiden speech from the Dispatch Box on the Opposition side of the House. Lest he has any fears that it might be a once only occasion, perhaps I may say on behalf of all of my colleagues how very much we look forward to him making many more speeches from that Box for many more...

Yorkshire (21 Apr 1980)

Mr Donald Kaberry: We shall go on improving as the years advance. I shall speak reasonably briefly, I hope, because many of my colleagues wish to intervene in this very short debate, and, necessarily, I must refer to that part of the county which best I know—around my own city of Leeds. But this part demonstrates very much the overall trading and manufacturing capacity of our county because we certainly had...

Yorkshire (21 Apr 1980)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I cannot answer that question. I am not a right hon. Gentleman—[HON. MEMBERS: "Shame"]—and if I were, I would take more advantages than I do. Many hon. Members wish to speak, and they will explain about inner cities. I wish to concentrate on the engineering, textile and ready-made clothing industries. I hope that I have done that. I want to go on living in a champion county and I hope...

Orders of the Day — European Community (Aircraft Noise) (19 Jun 1979)

Mr Donald Kaberry: What does all this mean? Does it mean that we will have more or less noise at our airports? I am concerned about my local airport, Leeds—Bradford.

Orders of the Day — Leeds (Local Authority Services) (5 Apr 1978)

Mr Donald Kaberry: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am sorry to raise a point of order in an Adjournment debate, because I know how precious the moments are, and I shall be as brief as I can. I submit that the subject matter of this debate cannot be answered by a Minister in the House tonight. It is a bad issue on three grounds. "Erskine May", in the nineteenth edition, at pages 277, 362 and 371,...

Orders of the Day — Leeds (Local Authority Services) (5 Apr 1978)

Mr Donald Kaberry: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

Orders of the Day — Leeds (Local Authority Services) (5 Apr 1978)

Mr Donald Kaberry: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

Orders of the Day — Leeds (Local Authority Services) (5 Apr 1978)

Mr Donald Kaberry: May I ask whether that ruling covers the rule of anticipation, because the Inner Urban Areas Bill is item 21 on the Order Paper today?

British Steel Corporation (9 Mar 1978)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I shall be brief, but I must make it clear, lest there be any misapprehension in view of the speech of the hon. Member for Feltham and Heston (Mr. Kerr), that we are dealing with unanimous reports of 15 Members, some of whom, on the Government Benches, could never be described as being exactly in the Centre or to the Right of their party while some of those on the Opposition Benches likewise...

British Steel Corporation (9 Mar 1978)

Mr Donald Kaberry: It was an answer to Question 193. The Secretary of State said: We certainly hoped that things would get better and there was a good deal of evidence at that time to suggest that they might get better. In answer to the same question the Minister of State said: Of course, when Sir Donald puts it as it is fair in one way to put it, that we were waiting for something to turn up, what we were...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firearms (1 Mar 1973)

Mr Donald Kaberry: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is now in a position to announce what action he proposes to take upon the report he has received relating to the retail sale in the United Kingdom of imported realistic model firearms.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firearms (1 Mar 1973)

Mr Donald Kaberry: May I urge my right hon. Friend to use the utmost expedition in publishing his recommendations? The difficulty about publicity concerning the sale and purchase of replica guns is that it tends to increase purchases of them by people who otherwise would not be buying them and using them in pursuit of wrongdoing. Therefore, may I urge my right hon. Friend to review what he has just said and to...

Local Authorities (Finance) (24 Jan 1973)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I represent a part of the city of Leeds, and I happen also to be a ratepayer in that city. Naturally, I should support any movement in favour of reducing the rate poundage imposed upon us by the Leeds City Council. To that extent I associate myself with all the remarks which have been made calling for a reduction in the rate demand. I received a letter from the leader of my local city...
