Airbus A330/A340 Projects (14 May 1987)

Mr George Park: Will the Secretary of State accept that his announcement, although welcome, may have the effect of creating difficulties for other projects which British Aerospace is funding without aid?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Company Takeovers (Concert Parties) (29 Apr 1987)

Mr George Park: asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many prosecutions have been undertaken since 1979 under part VI of the Companies Act for the organisation of a concert party.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Company Takeovers (Concert Parties) (29 Apr 1987)

Mr George Park: In view of the conclusion of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry that there was almost certainly a concert party in operation at Westland, will the Minister reconsider the decision not to hold an inquiry? Is an inquiry not made even more necessary by the strange fact that while one member of the concert party — Dreyfus of Switzerland — admits that its agents were agents for...

Rolls-Royce (28 Apr 1987)

Mr George Park: My hon. Friend the Member for Eccles (Mr. Carter-Jones) and I, with hon. Members from other parties, accompanied a whole series of delegations to Ministers—when the Minister was in the MOD—about providing help for the A320—repayable help, I might add. The offer that has been made on the A330/340 is less than half what British Aerospace reckons it needs. The danger is that the work will...

Rolls-Royce (28 Apr 1987)

Mr George Park: The hon. Member for Loughborough (Mr. Dorrell) confirmed what my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Monklands, East (Mr. Smith) said—private enterprise is happy to take the profits when they are going, but reserves the right, when the going gets rough, to go back to the taxpayer to bail it out. Apparently, the hon. Member for Loughborough wants it both ways. We are all aware that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (22 Apr 1987)

Mr George Park: I shall not follow the line of the hon. Member for Tatton (Mr. Hamilton). I should like to deal largely with the position in my constituency. Judging by the contributions of Conservative Members, my constituency seems to differ considerably from theirs. What we needed was a Finance Bill for jobs. What we have is one that does nothing for the real economy. The Chancellor had the chance to use...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Mar 1987)

Mr George Park: asked the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Thursday 26 March.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Mar 1987)

Mr George Park: Was the Prime Minister consulted before Austin Rover was instructed to hand over confidential information to Ford during the abortive merger last year, or did the right hon. and learned Member for Richmond, Yorks (Mr. Brittan) feel confident that he already knew the Prime Minister's attitude to this act of industrial sabotage?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Rolls-Royce plc (25 Mar 1987)

Mr George Park: As the employees of any company determine its success or failure in the final analysis, has the Minister no concern for the fact that Rolls-Royce has made no attempt to explain the possible implications of privatisation?

Estimates Day: Motor Vehicle Industry (11 Mar 1987)

Mr George Park: When Conservative Members have finished posturing, the question of jobs should still be paramount in this debate. It is encouraging that, once again, Britain's car plants are engaging employees, increasing production and productivity and committing themselves to forward investment to continue to raise the quality and quantity of the product. However, recognition should be given to the fact...

Westland plc (Share Transactions) (11 Mar 1987)

Mr George Park: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 20, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, the need for an inquiry by the Director of Public Prosecutions into share transactions in Westland plc. The matter is specific because it refers to share transactions at a particular point in time...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Community Charge (4 Mar 1987)

Mr George Park: Will the Minister now answer the question? What are the likely collection costs of the community charge?

Rover Group (19 Feb 1987)

Mr George Park: The Minister said that success depends on the market place. That being so, I wonder whether, in agreeing to merge Leyland Vehicles with DAF, he took into account the fact that, in November of last year, Leyland Vehicles took the lead in the market. It registered 805 trucks of more than 3·5 tonnes, compared with 658 for Daimler-Benz and 256 for DAF. Leyland maintained its lead. Given these...

Employment and Training (12 Feb 1987)

Mr George Park: During the 1980s the recession bit deeply into manufacturing industry in Coventry and the west midlands. Internationally known companies such as Alfred Herbert disappeared, and others — such as British Leyland, Alvis, Talbot, GEC and Rolls-Royce — drastically slimmed down their labour force. But what has become clear in the past 12 months is that the recession is still very much with us....

Housing and Homelessness (10 Feb 1987)

Mr George Park: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Housing and Homelessness (10 Feb 1987)

Mr George Park: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I thought, Sir, that you had appealed to hon. Members to confine themselves to 10-minute speeches.

Orders of the Day — Social Fund (Maternity and Funeral Expenses) Bill (5 Feb 1987)

Mr George Park: Would the Minister care to comment on a constituency case brought to me concerning a widow on supplementary benefit who had borrowed £375 from her son and needed repayment of it, but because the funeral bill had been paid she was refused a funeral grant?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Rover Group (28 Jan 1987)

Mr George Park: Will the Secretary of State acknowledge that as each part is sold off the remainder will find it progressively more difficult to become viable?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill: Restrictions on Rating and Precepting (26 Jan 1987)

Mr George Park: The introduction of an X factor into the formula would allow the different situations of the various transport authorities to be taken into account. Put briefly, in the west midlands there is a shortfall of £4·5 million. That poses for the public transport authorities some unpalatable choices. One of them is to reconsider the concessionary fare scheme, and that would be highly unpopular as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jan 1987)

Mr George Park: asked the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 20 January.
