Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: Like other hon. Members, I can see a long night ahead of us, and we may even talk tomorrow's business out, so I shall be brief.

The need for the joint boards has been brought about by the Government's wish to introduce a Bill...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill (22 May 1984)

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: If the last 25 hours of debate have identified anything, it is that the Bill is an extremely bad one. It paves the way only to uncertainty and confusion. So far, the House has been denied detailed proposals about how services will be run after 31 March 1986. The White Paper, Cmnd. 9063, which should perhaps be renamed "Strangling the Cities", is vague. The responses to the White Paper,...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill (22 May 1984)

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: I am reading no one's letter out. I am reading from the brief that I have compiled from what I have gathered together over the past few weeks. I do not need other people to provide me with letters to read out. If the valid points that I am making are accepted and considered by the Secretary of State, my speech tonight will have been well worth while. If he is to speak tonight, he will have...

Business of the House (24 May 1984)

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: Does the Leader of the House feel that it is now time for a debate to ascertain whether the activities of the police in the miners' dispute are worthy of a public inquiry? Today six of my constituents set off for Mansfield because they were summoned to attend the Mansfield magistrates court to answer charges for alleged offences committed in April. On their way they were stopped on the...

Orders of the Day — Co-operative Development Agency and Industrial Development Bill: Designation of Assisted Areas (4 Jun 1984)

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: I am grateful to have the opportunity to support amendment No. 53. I believe that it is essential to have a time lapse of about 12 months, as provided for in the amendment, to give the Government time to consider changes to the map, not just for those areas which retain their assisted area status, but for the ever-increasing number of areas where new industrial development is not keeping pace...

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: Does the Minister realise that those very miners have said today that they are now more determined then ever as a result of the Prime Minister misleading the House and deceiving them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Coal Mining Dispute (11 Jun 1984)

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse: The Secretary of State will be aware that his hon. Friend the Member for Elmet (Mr. Batiste), in last Thursday's debate, said that two pits in the west Yorkshire coalfield, Ledston Luck and Saville, would be closed in the very short term, and that the Alderton Bywater colliery, as a direct result of the dispute, was on the list for closure?
