British Leyland (Corporate Plan) (22 May 1984)

Mr George Park: Does the Secretary of State accept that in saying that, unless Bathgate closes, there will be detrimental effects on the rest of the company, he is recognising the interdependence of the companies within BL, yet he still proposes to privatise Jaguar, which will have the same detrimental effect on the progress of the whole company? We have heard a lot, even this afternoon, about economic...

British Aerospace (Merger) (16 May 1984)

Mr George Park: Will the Minister now answer the question asked by my right hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Govan (Mr. Millan)? As the Government are still the major shareholder, is not the House entitled to be told the Government's assessment of the proposal? The Minister should not adopt such a stand-back-at-arm's-length attitude. My right hon. Friend the Member for Bethnal Green and Stepney (Mr....

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions): Establishment and Functions of Staff Commission. (10 May 1984)

Mr George Park: I have listened to considerable parts of the debate, and I suppose that, within the crazy logic of the Bill, these consequential proposals make some sense. Having enacted previous legislation to control councils, and to take away the rights of councillors, and of the people whom they represent, the Government now seek almost dictatorial powers to make the cost savings which are said to be one...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions): Supplementary Provisions (10 May 1984)

Mr George Park: Subsection (3) imposes no limit, and it could be one person, if so declared.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Company Cars (10 May 1984)

Mr George Park: When will the Government stop using the car industry as a milch cow? The Government continue to allow adverse tariffs against our exports, a to apply a special tax only to cars and motor bikes, and to tax customers who, in the main, buy British cars. When will the Government change their policy?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill: Commencement and Termination of Interim Provisions (9 May 1984)

Mr George Park: The Secretary of State is not the only person who is shifting his position about the cost aspect being pushed out of the window. Is my hon. Friend aware that the discredited West Midlands report was repudiated by all the district councils except Solihull?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Small Engineering Firms Investment Scheme (2 May 1984)

Oral Answers to Questions — European Community: Portugal and Spain (21 Mar 1984)

Mr George Park: When Spain joins the Community, will there be an end to the preferential tariffs which act against the export of vehicles to Spain from this country?

Public Accounts (20 Mar 1984)

Mr George Park: I have had the privilege of serving under both Lord Barnett and the present Chairman of the Committee, my right hon. Friend the Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Sheldon), who have different styles. They are both effective in asking the searching questions that are essential at hearings of the Public Accounts Committee. Under both Chairmen, as has been said, the Committee has had the benefit...

Rates Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Feb 1984)

Mr George Park: The Leader of the House has said that this House will discuss the level of rate before local authorities make their rate. Will it not also be necessary, if the metropolitan county councils are wiped out and precepting authorities are put in them place. for their precepts also to fit into this timetable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Jaguar Cars (29 Feb 1984)

Mr George Park: When considering his privatisation plans for Jaguar, will the Secretary of State also bear in mind that although Jaguar has an established identity, there is still a degree of interdependence with the rest of British Leyland? Will the right hon. Gentleman also bear in mind that if Jaguar were sold to a company with its own means of producing components so that orders were taken away from...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade Statistics (1 Feb 1984)

Mr George Park: asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in answering questions on trade, he will make it clear whether he is using overseas trade statistics or balance of payments figures.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade Statistics (1 Feb 1984)

Mr George Park: I am rather surprised at that reply. Does the Minister recall that the last time his Department appeared at Question Time a similar question was tabled? Was not the reply given on that occasion based on an internal departmental estimate covering three months, which was not checkable and was therefore likely to mislead? I am sure that the Minister does not wish to mislead the House, but I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Industrial Stoppages (24 Jan 1984)

Mr George Park: Is not the trend a reflection of the rising tide of unemployment, which engenders fear among working people because they know that if they lose the job that they have they have no chance of getting another?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Waste Disposal (21 Dec 1983)

Mr George Park: Is the Minister aware that his consultation will have to be considerably more widespread now that it is proposed to discontinue the metropolitan councils? Does he recognise that it will be necessary to have consultations with each of the district councils which go to make up the present county councils? This is another example of the scattering of functions that will follow the abolition of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Telephones (Type Approval) (14 Dec 1983)

Mr George Park: Will the Minister accept that the bulk of simple telephone extensions installed since liberalisation are imported models? Has he had a look—it would be particularly appropriate in the Minister's case—at the possible impact that that is having on companies such as GEC in Coventry?

Motor Industry (12 Dec 1983)

Mr George Park: I said that the funding was not sufficient to meet the needs of the company at that time. I trust that the hon. Gentleman will agree. He knows that unless new models and face lifts are introduced, cars rapidly lose their sales appeal. It was only when BL was able to offer a range of models, in conjunction with a favourable exchange rate, that the industry began to lift off.

Motor Industry (12 Dec 1983)

Mr George Park: I welcome the opportunity to debate the car industry. I thank the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. King) for providing that opportunity. In the House and outside it there is still a lack of awareness of the importance of the motor industry to Britain. That is shown by the sparsity of attendance in the Chamber. More recognition should be given to the fact that no manufacturing...
