Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Green Belt Land (17 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the Minister recognise that the problem of non-conforming activities in green belt areas is sometimes considerable? Will he therefore encourage local authorities to provide adequate industrial estates where business men can develop reasonable activities, and strengthen the powers of local authorities to deal with objectionable activities that frequently continue for many years and ruin...

Rate Support Grant (England) (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: The hon. Member for Ealing, North (Mr. Greenway), at the end of his speech, indulged in a trivial and petty argument which was unworthy of him and the respect in which he is generally held in the House as a result of his contributions on education. The hon. Gentleman earlier argued adequate financial support for his constituency, which he regards as having the problems of an inner city area,...

Rate Support Grant (England) (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Before my right hon. Friend leaves the question of Essex, is he aware that the Secretary of State and his colleagues have confirmed that Essex is one of the most efficient and prudent authorities? It has still suffered the heavy cut to which my right hon. Friend is referring. Surely that shows that there is no reward for pursuing the economic policies that the Secretary of State advocates?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: State Schools (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the savage reductions in the rate support grant, which affect local education authorities—including Conservative-controlled authorities, such as Essex—mean that cuts are being made in basic necessities? That will inevitably lead to a drop in standards. Does the right hon. Gentleman not realise that since the war the biggest threat to education...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Will the right hon. Lady find time today to consider the financial crisis now facing the Essex county council as a result of the rate support grant settlement, which has dismayed even its Conservative leaders, who are worried by the response that they have received from her right hon. Friends? Is she aware that this threatens educational services, old people's homes, fire cover and many other...

Defence (15 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: The hon. Gentleman cannot expect me to allow him to get away with that. I think that the American defence commitment is nonsensical and idiotic in both American and world terms. However, I wish Britain to retain its friendship with the United States. I wish the United States to prosper, and that wish extends to every other country.

Defence (15 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: The House is indebted to the hon. Member for Gillingham (Sir F. Burden) for providing the opportunity to discuss some of the most basic aspects of the Government's defence policy. I hasten to add that I am unable to go along with all that he and his right hon. Friend the Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Mr. Amery) said. I am, however, deeply concerned, with the hon. Member for Gillingham, about...

Defence (15 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman because he has shown some uncertainty about the best type of nuclear deterrent. Conservative Members must make their position absolutely clear. It is no good tabling such motions unless they do so. The Secretary of State must soon announce whether the Government will buy the C4 Trident missile, as originally envisaged in the announcement in July 1980, or...

Defence (15 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for making clear his position. I believe that I am correct in saying that he differs from the position of the right hon. Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Dr. Owen) who has said that we should get rid of it completely. Therefore, it should be recognised that the Social Democratic Party is, as on other issues, divided on the polices that it is advocating. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Interest Rates (11 Feb 1982)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the Chancellor admit that his forecast in his Budget speech of reduced interest rates resulting from increased taxation and vicious cuts in public expenditure has now been shown to be worthless? Does he agree that the budget that President Reagan is now proposing, with its crazy 18 per cent. increase in defence expenditure, threatens a deficit that will produce an increase in interest...
