British Nuclear Fuels (Warrington) (16 Mar 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: May I at this point say how glad I am that it is my hon. Friend who is replying to this debate, because 31⅓ years ago, I took over from the well-loved Derick Heathcoat-Amory? It is a particular pleasure that, at the end of my last Parliament, a member of the same family should end that Parliament at the Dispatch Box.

Mr. Speaker (Retirement) (12 Mar 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: There is one important aspect of your Speakership which needs to be placed on record, I hope as a guide for the future. All the holders of your office have been invested, by the tradition of the House and by Standing Orders, with authority. But, up until 1983, for longer than anyone can remember, the election of Mr. Speaker had been largely a fiction. The Speaker had been imposed on the House...

Orders of the Day — Further and Higher Education Bill [Lords]: Adult Education Funding for Community Colleges ( 3 Mar 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Orders of the Day — Further and Higher Education Bill [Lords]: Adult Education Funding for Community Colleges ( 3 Mar 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: The purpose of new clause 7 is to enable community colleges, for courses approved by the funding councils, to be funded directly by the funding councils after direct application has been made to them. By establishing that the payments received by community colleges for such courses shall be held in trust for the purpose for which the funding council provides them, that gets round the...

Orders of the Day — Further and Higher Education Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: There is much in the Bill which is to the credit of the Secretary of State who conceived it. Unhappily, he has knowingly and deliberately polluted it with a breach of principle so serious as to render the Bill itself unacceptable, and it is to that which I shall direct my attention. It is concerned with the community colleges. May I mention in passing that my right hon. and learned Friend the...

Orders of the Day — Further and Higher Education Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: If the Bill had been produced at very short notice and introduced first to the House, it might have been possible to assent to it on Second Reading in the reasonable hope and expectation that it would be acceptably amended in Committee. But that is not its history. Early in September, having ascertained that that was not too late to secure alteration to the Bill, I and my hon. Friend the...

Orders of the Day — Further and Higher Education Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend. He has knowledge of the educational pattern in his area of which I am ignorant, just as I am more familiar with the educational pattern in my part of Devon than I am with that of north Devon.

Orders of the Day — Further and Higher Education Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: I am grateful for that contribution from my hon. Friend, because his area is different from mine, in one of the most dispersed educational patterns of any LEA in England. I shall conclude by saying this. The Bill has already been through another place, where there was every opportunity for my right hon. and learned Friend to secure amendment to it so as to deal with the real problems, which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jan 1992)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: Will my right hon. Friend find time today to tell the House of the decision made yesterday to restore to Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia the gold deposited for safe keeping in the Bank of England but misappropriated by the then Labour Government with the support in the Division Lobby of the leader and Chief Whip of the Liberal party at that time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Industrial Development Act 1982 (15 Jan 1992)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Maastricht (18 Dec 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: Will my right hon. Friend ensure that when the United Kingdom assumes the presidency of the EC the other Scandinavian countries, as well as Sweden, are encouraged to join as full voting members at the earliest possible date?

Local Government Finance (England) (26 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: Will my right hon. Friend explain why provision is made for local authorities with a history of overspending but not for local authorities with a history of underspending, which may have very expensive problems in rural areas, and extensive school networks and social services, to a level which cost far more than in the authorities which have a history of high spending?

Orders of the Day — European Community (Intergovernmental Conferences) (21 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: And Norway?

Points of Order (21 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday, in answer to a point of order raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook), you said: I have just said that I think 'jerk' is not among the list of unparliamentary expressions but I asked the Leader of the Opposition to refine it."—[Official Report, 20 November 1991; Vol 199, c.283.] I want to make a submission to you, Mr....

Points of Order (21 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: The list has grown up, Mr. Speaker, by your predecessors ruling each time a new expression is used which, in the opinion of Mr. Speaker, is unparliamentary. It is important that you should remind the House that that list does not and cannot constrain Mr. Speaker not to rule that expressions which are grossly offensive are not unparliamentary purely because they have not appeared on the list...

Business of the House (21 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: As returning stolen goods is different from aid, will my right hon. Friend ensure that, when the Foreign Secretary makes a statement on the return of the gold stolen by the Labour Government with the assistance of the then leaders of the Liberal party and is replaced in the Bank of England to the order of the Governments of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, that statement is not confused with an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Beef Industry (21 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: How many more years will it take my hon. Friend to discover the obvious truth—that the only way in agricultural produce to relate supply and demand is by a quota system, such as that which exists for milk products?

Renewable Energy ( 5 Nov 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: Will my hon. Friend tell us to what extent his programme can be delayed by protracted planning procedures and to what extent, by use of general development orders, he can reduce that risk to the minimum?

Estimates Day: Steel Industry ( 4 Jul 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: This debate on the whole of the United Kingdom steel industry was triggered by the Select Committee's report. It is clearly a debate that will not conclude tonight, because the events with which it is concerned will not be concluded tonight. The evidence we took only little more than half a year ago about the projections for steel consumption in western Europe in particular have already been...

Estimates Day: Steel Industry ( 4 Jul 1991)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: I am sure that the whole House hoped that the Chairman of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry—my hon. Friend the Member for Hastings and Rye (Mr. Warren)—could have been here today, as he chaired the Committee during its inquiry into the closure of the hot wide strip mill at Ravenscraig. Unfortunately, my hon. Friend has not been able to attend the House for a month because of ill...
