Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Laker Airways (Allocation of Routes) (29 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will make a statement about the allocation of route licences formerly held by Laker Airways

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Laker Airways (Allocation of Routes) (29 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is it not clear that in the past the method of allocating routes led to an oversupply of seats at minimum economic cost, with the result that, although passengers gained in the short run through cheap fares, in the long run there have been deficits, bankruptcies, redundancies and passengers losing all their fare money? Is there not a strong case for reviewing the allocation of routes and at...

Orders of the Day — Common Agricultural Policy (24 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Will the right hon. Gentleman confirm that in 1980–81, EEC countries exported to the world market some 4·7 million tonnes of sugar, representing 20 per cent. of total world trade in sugar? Does he realise that that has greatly depressed the world price of sugar and has accordingly reduced the earning power of countries which depend upon the export of sugar? Does he also recognise that the...

Orders of the Day — Common Agricultural Policy (24 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: The right hon. Gentleman is wrong.

Council of Agriculture Ministers (Meeting) (18 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Was the equalisation of fuel costs to glasshouse growers discussed? If not, can the Minister give us any information about current progress on this vital issue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Hijacks (Costs) (18 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: I pay tribute to the work of the Essex police on this occasion. Is there any truth in the report that, as far as possible, highjacked aircraft are to be diverted to Stansted? Would it not, therefore, be right to make an additional move to assist the Essex county council if there are any further highjackings?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: New Town Houses (Repairs) (17 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: On what basis does the Minister have the effrontery to put the blame on the previous Government when three years have elapsed since the present Government came to office? Does he not recognise that this problem has been handled in an absolutely clumsy manner and that there have been completely unjustified delays? How on earth does he expect new town local authorities to plan when they have...

Trident Missile Programme (11 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Will the Minister tell us how he proposes to meet the costs of this weapon after 1985 when they escalate to the peak? Does he propose to meet them out of the normal defence budget, which will mean cutting down on conventional expenditure, or does he propose to have a special budget which will add even more to the gigantic escalation of defence expenditure which his Government are proposing?...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Budget (11 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the Minister recognise that vast numbers of people, including many business men, are deeply disappointed with the Budget in so far as it is, in effect, inflationary and will lead to a continuing rise in unemployment with no real relief being given to those, now more than 1 million, who have been unemployed for over a year? In those circumstances, how on earth can the right hon. and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (Benefits) (9 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to enable disabled persons whose allowances do not allow them to qualify for supplementary benefit to become eligible on similar terms to those in receipt of supplementary benefit for the long-term rate of benefit or its equivalent where this exceeds their benefits.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (Benefits) (9 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that disablement benefits have become the instrument whereby the disabled are put at a serious disadvantage compared with the able-bodied? Is that not a disgrace and is it not vital to take immediate steps to overcome the difficulties and to place the disabled at least on an equal basis with the able-bodied?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Milk (4 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the Minister recognise that the objective must be to maximise the consumption of milk in the interests of consumers and producers? Does the right hon. Gentleman think that he is doing enough to defend the doorstep delivery side of the industry, which has had a difficult time and is still under long-term threat from possible bulk imports of milk from the Continent? What is the Minister's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Poland (3 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Will the Lord Privy Seal make it clear that many of us who have been deeply concerned about human rights in other parts of the world are equally anxious about the situation in Poland? Is he aware that we are most concerned that he should make it clear everywhere that the Opposition are anxious that immediate steps are taken to release political prisoners and to provide proper freedom for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Miss Ana Margarita Gasteazoro (3 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: In those circumstances, how can fair elections possibly take place in El Salvador? Will the Minister reconsider the decision that he defended yesterday? If this lady, who is a member of the Social Democratic Party of El Salvador, is kept in gaol for a year without trial, what possibility is there for people on the Left to campaign adequately in elections?

Central America (2 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: No armed forces.

Central America (2 Mar 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: No one who studies the situation in El Salvador today can have any doubts about the appalling suffering which its people have experienced over recent years. Journalists, priests, politicians, relief workers and all those others who have visited the country tell a similar story of cruelty, murder, poverty and misery. Of the population of about 4½ million, 300,000 are estimated to have fled...

Business of the House: European Community (Agriculture Ministers' Meeting) (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: I welcome any progress towards the harmonisation of the energy costs of glasshouse producers, but does the Minister recognise that it will still be a considerable time before the objective is achieved? Has he therefore considered introducing in the interim what the industry requires, which is restrictions on imports or an increase in the subsidy to enable the industry in Britain to survive...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Foreign Visitors (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the procedures under which close relatives of people of foreign extraction now living in the United Kingdom who are domiciled abroad are able to visit them in the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Foreign Visitors (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Will the right hon. Gentleman investigate the case of my constituent, Mrs. Chiraghuddin Rehman, who has consistently been refused permission for a visit from her mother and brother, whom she has not seen for more than 10 years, on such grounds as the brother's inability to name the sights that he expects to see on his visit and that her husband's income amounts to only 17 per cent. of the...
