Orders of the Day — Motor Vehicle Industry (16 Dec 1975)

Mr George Park: When my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. Duffy) told the House that his Committee intended to investigate the Chrysler deal and issued invitations to the Front Bench to attend, the thought passed through my mind that unless my hon. Friend supported the Government tonight in the Lobby there would be nothing for him to investigate, because Chrysler would have gone. Every...

Orders of the Day — Municipal Trading and Direct Labour (26 Jan 1976)

Mr George Park: I should like to join my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, West (Mr. Dean) in his appeal for a more balanced approach to matters affecting local government. Regrettably, on each occasion when any aspect of local government is discussed in this House, prejudiced views colour the comments of right hon. and hon. Gentlemen of the Opposition. There can be no doubt that this is because some of...

Orders of the Day — Municipal Trading and Direct Labour (26 Jan 1976)

Mr George Park: By that comment the hon. Gentleman illustrates the non-attention to what goes to make up this proposition. It is true that there are elements in it that are not related. Motor racing applies only to Birmingham. The Birmingham District Council is the only authority talking about this matter. None of the others has mentioned it. Dogs are another subject of debate. Many letters have been...

Orders of the Day — Municipal Trading and Direct Labour (26 Jan 1976)

Mr George Park: After talking to the area health authority, where do we go from there? Will the hon. Gentleman give us the follow up? We have talked to them. What happens now?

WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL (By Order) (11 Feb 1976)

Mr George Park: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I am aware that many hon. Members have received representations on various Parts of the Bill, but the constraints of time in a short debate, made even shorter by the previous happening, do not permit a detailed examination of the proposals. Therefore, the main burden of my remarks will be to try to persuade the House that the Bill...

WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL (By Order) (11 Feb 1976)

Mr George Park: Similarly, it would seem not unreasonable that a local authority should be empowered, in its parks department to sell goods which can be produced at marginal cost over and above its normal costs, and thereby to contribute to the rate fund. It is not the intention to open butchers' shops and florists' shops throughout the area. The council also appreciates that there cannot be unlimited...

WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL (By Order) (11 Feb 1976)

Mr George Park: rose in his place and claimed to move, That the Question be now put.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: West Midlands (16 Mar 1976)

Mr George Park: Does my right hon. Friend really believe that the statement made today refusing assisted area status to the West Midlands is likely to give any further encouragement to the people of the West Midlands in pulling themselves up by their bootstraps? Is he aware that industries are still leaving the West Midlands because of the regional policy—for example, Polypak, at Halesowen?

Local Government (28 Apr 1976)

Mr George Park: I suppose that it is difficult in framing a motion or an amendment on a subject such as this to avoid the all-embracing approach. If there is one thing that has emerged from the contributions of Members from both sides of the House it is the immense variety of circumstance and need that comes under the umbrella description of local government. There is an immense difference in the way in...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Young People (Employment) (21 Jun 1976)

Mr George Park: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that it was an unfortunate fact that, when he visited Coventry to talk to employers, all the schemes there had come from local authorities and none at all from private concerns?

Occupational Pensions (White Paper) (25 Jun 1976)

Mr George Park: I add my welcome to these proposals. In deciding that representation will be on a 50–50 basis, I think that the Government are taking an essentially practical approach to this development. It is inevitable that we should hear the cry from the Opposition Benches "What about the non-unionists?" If Opposition Members care to examine that cry just for once, they might modify it on this and on...

Occupational Pensions (White Paper) (25 Jun 1976)

Mr George Park: The point is that representatives of trade unions are responsible to the members. Surely my right hon. Friend will agree that non-unionists are responsible only to themselves. To whom are they accountable except to themselves? How would they reflect the opinion of other trade unionists? They cannot all be on the trustee board.

Youth Employment (3 Aug 1976)

Mr George Park: Am I right in assuming that the schemes will not apply to the West Midlands? If so, there will be great disappointment in the West Midlands, which has an unemployment level as high as or higher than that of some assisted areas. That adds point to our plea for a much more flexible regional policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Trade Unions (Recognition) (16 Nov 1976)

Mr George Park: asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many trade union recognition issues ACAS is currently dealing with under the provisions of the Employment Protection Act.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Trade Unions (Recognition) (16 Nov 1976)

Mr George Park: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. Can he say in how many cases the outcome was recognition of the union, and does he agree that in the recent case of Grunwick Processing it would have been much more sensible to use this valuable process rather than allow the situation to fester as it did?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (30 Nov 1976)

Mr George Park: Can the Minister give any statistics to the House on the extension of the housing adaption schemes for the disabled under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Agricultural Land (Urban Development) (9 Dec 1976)

Mr George Park: Is it not a fact that in the area referred to by the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Mr. Smith) and in the West Midlands generally we get only half the grant that people in other areas get to reclaim derelict land?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Mobility Allowance (8 Feb 1977)

Mr George Park: Without wishing to detract from the mobility allowance scheme, may I ask what progress has been made in finding a suitable alternative invalid vehicle?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Job Creation (14 Jun 1977)

Mr George Park: What will follow when the job creation project finishes? What will happen after that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (Vehicles) (19 Jul 1977)

Mr George Park: Regarding employment, is it not a fact that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment has said that no person would be denied the opportunity of seeking and retaining employment and that he would deal with the matter? Is it not true that an evaluation of the GKN prototype vehicle is being carried out and that there are now discount schemes with the major motor manufacturers?
