Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Concessionary Fares (16 Mar 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is the Minister aware of the superior quality of the concessions provided by most Labour-controlled authorities compared with areas not under Labour control? Is that not illustrated by the Labour-controlled Harlow district council as compared with the Conservative-controlled Epping Forest district council? Is there not an overwhelming case for a basic national scheme that provides minimum...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: British Union of Fascists (Public Records) (14 Mar 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: I am grateful to the right hon. and learned Gentleman for that reply. Does he not think that it is a disgrace that administrative means should be used to retain papers that relate to the interrogation of Sir Oswald Mosley and are eligible for release, and thereby prevent facts coming to light that could clarify the position of the establishment in the light of assertions by hon. Members on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Arms Supplies (Dictatorships) (1 Mar 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is it not clear that the controls are totally inadequate in view of the fact that Rolls-Royce engines, David Brown gear controls, components for Exocet missiles, radar eqiupment and other components have continued to be supplied to Argentina, despite its refusal to agree to a cessation of hostilities in the South Atlantic? Does this not illustrate that we must change the whole system and...

Orders of the Day — National Heritage Bill [Lords] (24 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Like the hon. Member for Isle of Wight (Mr. Ross) and my hon. Friend the Member for Warley, East (Mr. Faulds), I welcome the Bill, but I wonder whether it has sufficient teeth to do the job that it sets out to do as well as it should he done. Despite the admirable work of the Ancient Monuments Board and the Historic Buildings Council, most people with any knowledge of ancient monuments and...

Orders of the Day — National Heritage Bill [Lords] (24 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: I entirely agree. Many groups of people come together and contribute to the maintenance of sites. It is important that we should provide the initial education that is necessary to stimulate their interest. There has been a considerable growth of concern for our heritage in recent years. The hon. Member for Isle of Wight said that that growth had been expressed in voluntary efforts to...

Orders of the Day — National Heritage Bill [Lords] (24 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Might it be helpful if hon. Members who want to leave gave way so that possibly controversial points of view could be expressed?

Orders of the Day — National Heritage Bill [Lords] (24 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: In view of what the hon. and learned Member for Thanet, West (Mr. Rees-Davies) said, will the Minister confirm that the Government are not implying or endeavouring to convey to trustees that they should adopt a different attitude to the introduction of charges from that of the past? I take it that the Minister can assure us on that matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Vacant and Underused Land (23 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that many local authorities need land for building council houses, and that many people have no hope of getting a home unless they can get a council house tenancy? In those circumstances, what will he do to prevent property speculators, who are anxious to make the most of sales to the private sector, from taking over all available land from local authorities...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Mid-career Education and Training (22 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is the Minister aware that many people who have taken mid-career educational courses have subsequently found themselves unemployed? In those circumstances, is it not nonsensical for us to talk about mid-career education, when the Government are doing nothing about giving the type of boost to industry that is necessary to give people the opportunity to make use of whatever skills they acquire?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Land Settlement Association (Tenants) (17 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make arrangements to provide additional assistance to those Land Settlement Association tenants, threatened by its dissolution, whose problems have not been resolved by his revision of the time table for the termination of the marketing services and arrangements for short-term credits.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Land Settlement Association (Tenants) (17 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the right hon. Gentleman recognise that many tenants who took on holdings more recently are still faced with very heavy debt burdens, which threaten to put them out of business unless he takes some further action? What right have the Government to say that they defend the small business men when they take action that destroys the businesses of many hard working small business men?

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Historic Documents (14 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is there any truth in reports that public records dealing with the British Union of Fascists are likely to be witheld for the full 100 years? Bearing in mind that attempts were made a few years ago to withdraw certain Metropolitan police records relating to the hunger marches of 1933 and 1934, which were later countermanded, is there not a case for great vigilance in these matters to ensure...

Council of Agriculture Ministers (9 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the right hon. Gentleman recognise that, if permission is granted to import any UHT milk, it will undermine the viability of milk rounds somewhere in the country to the detriment of consumers, the dairy industry and farmers? In those circumstances, will he bear in mind that consumers in remoter areas will have less access to milk if it is put on as a loss leader in supermarkets? Will he,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq-Iran War (Ceasefire) (9 Feb 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that as long as both sides can obtain arms there is no incentive for them to cease the war, which distracts their populations from the appalling record on human rights that prevails in both countries? In those circumstances, will the Minister reconsider negotiations between the British Government and the Iraqi Government about the supply of arms? Can he say...

Business of the House (27 Jan 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Should the Prime Minister be less than anxious to rush into the House to make a statement justifying loans to the Argentine junta which allow it to buy arms from the West, what other opportunities can the right hon. Gentleman suggest are open to us to raise this matter in the near future?
