Ambulance Service (West Midlands) (20 Nov 1978)

Mr George Park: My hon. Friend has drawn attention pointedly to the fact that he is responsible for industrial relations in the Department. That being the case, although this matter is one for the regional health authority, would he not agree that in exercising his responsibility, and since I raised this matter some two years ago on an individual case, he might well have taken an initiative himself before...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Industrial Fastener Industry (29 Jan 1979)

Mr George Park: Does my hon. Friend agree that merely collecting information and passing it on to the Commission is hardly the positive role that we expect to see his Department undertaking? Will he take a more active part in making sure that justice is done to this industry?

Local Authority Manual Workers (Pay) (31 Jan 1979)

Mr George Park: My right hon. Friend keeps referring to negotiations, but does not he agree that in any set of negotiations one has to have something to negotiate about? Therefore, if the local authority associations have refused to put an offer on the table, there have been no negotiations. Although he could not agree with my right hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey (Mr. Mellish) that the negotiations...

Orders of the Day — WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (6 Feb 1979)

Mr George Park: It is poetic justice that, owing to the swings of local political fortune in the West Midlands, the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hall Green (Mr. Eyre) had the job of sponsoring the Bill tonight. I cannot help contrasting his reception with the one accorded to me when I introduced a similar Bill. It must be evident from the actions and comments of my hon. Friends that they intended all the way...

Orders of the Day — WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (6 Feb 1979)

Mr George Park: I would not mind representing both. London Members apparently think that they are the only ones who represent polyglot communities. They should come to Coventry some time and have a go in my constituency. I reckon that it is a bit like the League of Nations. I doubt whether hon. Members could name a nationality that is not to be found in my constituency and that of my hon. Friend the Member...

Orders of the Day — WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (6 Feb 1979)

Mr George Park: There have been some comments about the rights of free-born Englishmen. Maybe I am not the right person to talk about that matter, being a Scotsman. I think that the county council has taken cognisance of the fact that those rights apply to all the people and not to just some of the people. It has introduced in clause 39 what it considers to be a method of allowing those people who do not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Birmingham and West Midlands (27 Mar 1979)

Mr George Park: Without wishing to minimise the problem, may I ask whether my hon. Friend agrees that had it not been for Government assistance to British Leyland, Chrysler, Alfred Herbert, Meriden and other industrial schemes, the figures would have been considerably higher?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Job Creation (19 Jun 1979)

Mr George Park: Does the Minister's reply mean that areas such as the West Midlands which have no special status, but have high unemployment rates, are likely to suffer cuts?

Orders of the Day — Manpower Services Commission (21 Jun 1979)

Mr George Park: I congratulate the hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Mr. Wolfson) on his maiden speech. We look forward to his future contributions to our debates with interest, although, as he himself remarked, I doubt very much whether we shall be quite so easy on him next time. However, I regard it as a hopeful sign that in this very short debate two Members from Coventry caught your eye. Mr. Deputy Speaker. I...

Orders of the Day — Manpower Services Commission (21 Jun 1979)

Mr George Park: I appreciate that, in the short time that the Minister has at his disposal, he cannot be expected to answer specific questions in detail. However, I should like to ask him if he would be good enough to let me know—possibly by mail—the overall implications for Coventry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: British Leyland (25 Jun 1979)

Mr George Park: Is it the Government's clear intention to continue their support of British Leyland, in view of the impact this will have on the West Midlands, and Coventry in particular?

Members' Salaries and Pensions (11 Jul 1979)

Mr George Park: Does the hon. Gentleman concede that time limits on speeches might help?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Homes Insulation (25 Jul 1979)

Mr George Park: As those on low incomes and pensioners may have to pay the bill for home insulation before they receive the grant, will that not automatically exclude them from the benefits of the scheme?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Motor Vehicles and Components (22 Oct 1979)

Mr George Park: Does the Secretary of State agree that no Minister of the Crown seems eager to get involved in British Leyland at the moment? Does he accept that there is little point in asking Leyland workers to accept the massive sacrifices proposed by the chairman of the company when the Secretary of State for Industry will give no indication that if they make them they will then get the money?

Orders of the Day — Industry Bill (6 Nov 1979)

Mr George Park: On clause 1. I see that the NEB is to cease to have the function—

Orders of the Day — Industry Bill (6 Nov 1979)

Mr George Park: On clause I, where it provides that the NEB shall cease to have the function of extending public ownership, I want to be clear about what the Secretary of State is saying. Is he saying that if no private capital is available, either at home or abroad, for a particular company or industry which by general agreement is essential in the national interest, the Secretary of State, notwithstanding...

British Leyland (20 Nov 1979)

Mr George Park: First, is the Secretary of State satisfied that the proposed contraction will not lead to further contraction? There is a danger that Sir Michael Edwardes may have gone too far. Secondly, what opportunities will there be for British components manufacturers to tender for the BL-Honda and the other models for which, so far, they have not had the opportunity to tender? Thirdly, what...

British Leyland (20 Nov 1979)

Mr George Park: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The Secretary of State must have been misinformed. He said that the BL-Honda car will be assembled mainly from parts made in this country.

Orders of the Day — Supply: National Enterprise Board (26 Nov 1979)

Mr George Park: Will my right hon. Friend ask the Secretary of State whether he has con- sidered whether he is entitled to take these actions in regard to the NEB in advance of the passing of the Industry Bill?

Orders of the Day — Supply: National Enterprise Board (26 Nov 1979)

Mr George Park: In examining the choice before him, did the Secretary of State consider examining the causes of the friction between the chairman of Rolls-Royce and the chairman of the NEB?
