Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers' Dispute (19 Nov 1985)

Mr George Park: If the Secretary of State is so confident about his conduct of educational affairs, why will he not accept the suggestion of his hon. Friend the Member for Rutland and Melton (Mr. Latham) and allow a review, so that we can establish whether his confidence is well placed, or misplaced?

Clause 61: Travel concessions apart from schemes (29 Oct 1985)

Mr George Park: Perhaps the Minister will be rather more explicit. In Coventry there are at least half a dozen routes which do not make a profit although they are well used by holders of concessionary tickets. What will happen, when the Bill is enacted, to ensure the continuance of service on these routes? The Minister has mentioned that operators who might be interested in tendering for such routes are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Training Scheme (Managing Agencies) (29 Oct 1985)

Mr George Park: asked the Paymaster General if he is satisfied with Manpower Services Commission procedures for monitoring youth training scheme managing agencies.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Training Scheme (Managing Agencies) (29 Oct 1985)

Mr George Park: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, in spite of that information, we continue to receive reports that many of the schemes are still used as a source of cheap labour and that the quality of the training is not up to the standards that we should expect to enable young people to move from a training scheme to a job?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Cars (Imports) (23 Oct 1985)

Mr George Park: In the general endeavour to get some balance into our motor industry, can we expect that the new Secretary of State will initiate strenuous attempts to achieve balance in the trade between Spain, and this country, to enable Austin-Rover to trade on equal terms in that country and not have to climb over a tariff barrier four times as high as that faced by the Spanish manufacturers?

"Lifting the Burden" (16 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: Does the Minister realise that the greatest service the Government could render industry would be to ensure that the terms of trade between this country and other countries are fair and equal? Why does he not propose to do something about discriminatory tariffs and the differences in fuel and energy costs? Why does he continue to levy on motor vehicles a tax which is not applied to any other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Limited List Prescribing (16 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman still prepared to consider specific cases where a medication is seen by the medical profession to be the only one?

Opposition Day: National Health Service (Pay) (15 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: Will the Minister say something about the effect of this award on nurses' night duty payments?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Training Scheme (9 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: asked the Secretary of State for Employment how he proposes to finance the second year of the youth training scheme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Youth Training Scheme (9 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: What steps does the Secretary of State propose to take to bridge the gap between the current estimated cost of the one-year programme — £781 million — and the £925 million to which he has just referred? Has he received a commitment from the employers, or is this another case of robbing Peter to pay Paul, to the detriment of the trainees?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Motor Vehicles (Spanish Origin) (3 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: In view of the imbalance of trade between Spain and Great Britain in motor vehicles and the fact that there is now apparently to be another phasing-in period, despite the fact that the Spanish motor industry is now bigger than our own, why should we agree to this further phasing-in period, and why cannot we adopt the attitude of other countries to imports?

Opposition Day: National Health Service (2 Jul 1985)

Mr George Park: The right hon. and learned Gentleman referred to the nurses' award being in two stages. Does he deny that using this method will cost a staff nurse £300 and a sister £700? He lauds nurses for the fact that they do not take industrial action. I am suprised that they do not.

Opposition Day: Skill Needs (Government Policies) (24 Jun 1985)

Mr George Park: I do not wish to blight the parliamentary career of the hon. Member for Banbury (Mr. Baldry) by saying that I agree with his comparison with German industry. Suffice it to say that, in any recession, training is the first casualty. I understand that, especially in small businesses employing fewer than 200 people, the struggle to keep the business alive—it certainly is a struggle under this...

British Leyland (17 Jun 1985)

Mr George Park: I am glad that the Government have approved the corporate plan, which will allow BL to develop the K series engine. Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that many people throughout the country have waited anxiously for this decision because their livelihoods depend upon it? As people's futures are at stake, it is too serious a matter for the right hon. Gentleman or anyone else to try to score...

British Leyland (17 Jun 1985)

Mr George Park: Is the right hon. Gentleman further aware that the work people and management, who have made enormous efforts to bring BL to this point, would have been ill served if the Government had done anything other than they have done today?

Oral Answers to Questions — Youth Training Scheme (21 May 1985)

Mr George Park: The right hon. Gentleman will be aware that there is already a two-year scheme in Northern Ireland. Does he agree that if the results of introducing a two-year scheme in England prove to be the same as in Northern Ireland—that is, that even at the end of two years no jobs are available — we shall be no further forward? Would it not be wiser for the Government to amend their economic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Teachers (Pay) (21 May 1985)

Mr George Park: Given the fact, which no one seems to have challenged, that teachers' pay has slipped by about 30 per cent., will the Secretary of State draw on his experience at the Department of Industry and realise that he must sort that out first before going on to deal with restructuring, because until he faces that issue relationships will continue to be atrocious?

Opposition Day: Unfair Dismissal (15 May 1985)

Mr George Park: I had thought that following the speech by the hon. Member for Langbaurgh (Mr. Holt) the Minister would graciously withdraw the order and creep away quietly, instead of keeping us up after the midnight hour. The point that the hon. Member for Langbaurgh made about the law getting mixed up in tribunals is something that I have fought against ever since its inception. We had a first-class...

Opposition Day: Unfair Dismissal (15 May 1985)

Mr George Park: Except that I did not mention immigrants. To me an employer is an employer. I am interested only in the circumstances. From what I heard last night, it was clear that fear existed among the employees. It did not exist among the employers, who seem to have the whip hand. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Mr. Golding) that it stretches the bounds of credulity to...

Multi-fibre Arrangement (9 May 1985)

Mr George Park: Coventry might not be a place that immediately springs to mind in a discussion on textiles, but the city has been involved with textiles for hundreds of years and, until recently, they provided thousands of jobs for Coventrians and minorities from Asia and European countries in the aftermath of the second world war. Many people from the Ukraine, Poland and Latvia still work in the textile...
