British Railways Bill (19 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, on this Bill.

British Railways Bill (19 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: I am grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, as there was an obvious danger of at least two Opposition Members ending up with laryngitis before too long. Will you confirm, Mr. Speaker, that the phrase, "business of the House" does not include private business such as the British Railways Bill? By definition, it is a Bill which affects a small section of the community, so it should not take precedence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: The Gulf (19 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement about the timetable for withdrawal of British troops from the Gulf.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: The Gulf (19 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: In an earlier answer, the Secretary of State told us that troops were returning at a rate of about 1,000 per day, so their return should be complete by about the end of April. What is the Government's view of the insurrection now taking place in Iraq, especially in the north and the south-west? Is it the same as the view of the United States Government which, according to a report in The...

Adjournment (Easter and Monday 6 May) (14 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: The House of Commons ought not to rise for Easter until it has fully discussed the Gulf war. I do not intend to trespass on the issues that my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) will raise in the debate that he has secured. However, I wish to refer to a few consequences of the Gulf war. For many families, the ending of the war has been marked this week by funerals, not...

Adjournment (Easter and Monday 6 May) (14 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: I am afraid that I do not have time. I am against such exhibitions, as are many of my hon. Friends who have signed the early-day motion to that effect. It is not as though we are against war. We are not pacifists. Plenty of regimes in the middle east and elsewhere need toppling. To paraphrase the Prime Minister, I shall not shed any tears if the al-Sabah royal family goes, if all it promises...

Business of the House (14 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Now that the Home Secretary has arrived in the Chamber—my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley) is present and will respond adequately to the statement for the Opposition—I ask the Leader of the House to have urgent consultations with the Home Secretary, after the statement, about rearranging next week's business so as to allow some Government time to...

Opposition Day: Poll Tax (Abolition) (13 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Will the Minister give way?

Opposition Day: Poll Tax (Abolition) (13 Mar 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: As the Minister is so keen on facts and figures, would he like to comment on a reply that was given to the hon. Member for Stockport (Mr. Favell) on 26 February? The Under-Secretary of State for the Environment—the hon. Member for Salisbury (Mr. Key)—referring to the average poll tax in England for 1990–91, said, as reported in column 421, "It was £357." When asked what the average...

Business of the House (28 Feb 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Should not further Government time be set aside to allow hon. Members to question Ministers on the welcome ending of the war, not least to enable hon. Members to express the relief felt in many homes about the light casualties on the British side, although each one is deeply felt? I am thinking particularly of Lee James Thompson and Jason McFadden from Coventry, whose families must be feeling...

The Gulf (28 Feb 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Conservative Members are obviously not on the family's side.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government Finance (27 Feb 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Will the review consider the powers of poll tax officers, such as is illustrated by the case of a 58-year-old lady to whom I spoke in Coventry last night? She has always paid her 20 per cent. poll tax by direct debit from a bank. After two lots of open-heart surgery, she moved last December from income support to invalidity benefit and received a £3 a week rise to £55 a week. She found that...

The Gulf (25 Feb 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: We have recently heard statements from the Minister in the Al-Sabah dictatorship that two years of martial law would follow the liberation of Kuwait. We have also heard repeated statements from Britain and America about hopes that another section of the Iraqi army would topple Saddam Hussein, leaving a dictatorship in charge. It is increasingly likely that the allied forces will occupy at...

Mr Dave Nellist: To ask the Prime Minister if the will list his official engagements for Thursday 14 February.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Feb 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Was yesterday's massacre of women and children in Amiriya a good example, under the 1977 Geneva protocol, of precision targeting of the right or wrong target? Was not the burning and lasceration of those children's bodies, to correctly use a military euphemism, the degrading of nobody in Baghdad but of those in whose name that slaughter took place?

Business of the House (31 Jan 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Will the Leader of the House urgently arrange a debate on the prosecution of the Gulf war? A business motion on today's Order Paper will allow right hon. and hon. Members to remain in the House all night to debate the burning topic of ministerial salaries and pensions, yet the time allowed for questions on the statement today by the Secretary of State for Defence was insufficient to allow all...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government Finance (30 Jan 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress he is making with his review of the poll tax; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government Finance (30 Jan 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: Despite the answers given yesterday by the Secretary of State to me and by the Prime Minister to my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. Dunnachie) that local authorities could be flexible about the poll tax and the troops in the Gulf, does the Minister agree that the 32 Tory councillors on Newbury district council must have approved sending a poll tax demand to 20-year-old Private...

Local Government Finance (England) (29 Jan 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: What happens—God forbid, all of us hope that this does not happen—if a service man who is exempted from the point of departure from these shores does not return? Will their spouses, because of joint and several liability and as has happened with families of trawlermen under Scottish legislation, be levied with a tax for which that service man was liable before leaving these shores?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 1991)

Mr Dave Nellist: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 24 January.
