Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Common Agricultural Policy (21 Mar 1983)

To rub salt into the wound, British consumers have to pay considerably more for their food than current world prices would justify.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Doctors (Deputising Services) (28 Jun 1983)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jun 1983)

Mr George Park: Bearing in mind that each fall of 1 per cent. in the inflation rate has led to 200,000 more unemployed, does reducing the inflation rate to zero mean that another 1 million people will join the dole queue?

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: In previous debates on the west midlands economy Opposition Members, including myself, have been accused of talking the region down when we were really attempting to gain some recognition and positive action by the Government to remedy the disasterous position in the west midlands. The choice of subject by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. King) and other initiatives by midlands...

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: I have known the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Mr. Beaumont-Dark) for too long to be silly enough to allow him to intervene at this point. Conservative Members may have been helped on their way since the Government take no notice of Opposition Members. However, they may be prepared to accept statements by bodies which have no connection with the Labour party. I refer to the west...

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: If the hon. Member for Northfield looks at those factories, he will see that that is the case. It goes even further with banks pulling the rug out from under viable companies, such as Cannings in Birmingham, and the Government allowing the taxpayer to be ripped off for the third time, as in the case of Alfred Herbert, and the Minister with responsibility for the west midlands standing...

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: I thank my hon. Friend for that contribution. The Prime Minister would have realised, had she stopped to think—instead of taking off on cloud nine on some popular proposal about the rates — that, after commissions and investigations into the rating system under successive Governments, no viable alternative has been put forward. There is no such easily collectable tax as rates, with so...

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: The simple answer is no, I do not agree with that string of shibboleths from the hon. Gentleman. I urge him quietly to examine what he said. According to Accountancy Age, rates represent 1 per cent. of manufacturing costs.

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: I wish the hon. Gentleman would permit me to answer the question he has already asked. The Government continue to look for scapegoats on which to offload their responsibility for failing to regenerate industry. If the hon. Gentleman examines the rating system carefully, he may find that what I have said is based more on fact than his slogans. Urgent action is needed in many or all of the...

West Midlands (25 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: Does my hon. Friend accept that the trade unions do not have the sanction of introducing new models? That is a matter for management. Therefore, as there have not been sufficient new models in the past, that must be the responsibility of management.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Spain (Import Duty) (27 Jul 1983)

Mr George Park: How many more excuses will the Government trot out before they deal with the Spanish problem? The Secretary of State was very scornful just now about my hon. Friend the Member for Norwood (Mr. Fraser). Does he recall that when he was previously in the Department of Trade some years ago he told me that he would do something about the problem?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Metropolitan Green Belt (26 Oct 1983)

Mr George Park: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that, rather than encroach further on the green belt, it would make more sense to provide more money for derelict land clearance, especially in areas such as the west midlands?

Mr George Park: What are the implications of the review for the west midlands? Will the Secretary of State do anything to stop the continuing contraction, especially in the machine tool industry?
