Youth Training (8 Jul 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: Thank you for calling me to make my maiden speech, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is especially appropriate for me to speak about youth and unemployment because in the city of Coventry, once the richest working-class city in the country with two thirds of the work force in manufacturing industry, the prospects for our school leavers are now bleak. Only one in 10 of those leaving the fifth form last...

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the prime causes of the decline in apprenticeships in the west midlands is that an employer prefers to employ someone free under the youth training scheme, for which the Manpower Services Commission provides funds?

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: The hon. Gentleman referred to hardship, affluence and over-manning.

Sri Lanka (25 Jul 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: No. The debate lasts for one and a half hours, so there is plenty of time for everyone to speak. Tamil workers were brought in by the British to work on the tea estates. Of those 1,200,000 Indian Tamils, 975,000 were officially declared stateless in 1964. Since then, agreement with India has meant that 600,000 were to be repatriated to India over 15 years while the rest were to remain in Sri...

Sri Lanka (25 Jul 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: I made it clear on three occasions that I stand implacably opposed to the methods of terrorism because they are no real substitute for achieving social change for the mass of population. They provide an excuse for Governments to introduce repressive measures. That, for me, is a principle. Individual terrorism, whether it involves the most genuine elements such as the Robin Hoods robbing the...

Sri Lanka (25 Jul 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: From the earliest days of my political life in the early 1970s and coming from the midlands where, particularly in the mid-1970s young workers died, I have always opposed, whether in Northern Ireland, Sri Lanka or elsewhere, the use by the IRA, by the Tigers about which the hon. Member for Northampton, South thinks I know nothing, by the Tupamaros or any of the organisations of Latin America,...
