Schedule 15: Local Authority Publicity (20 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Schedule 15: Local Authority Publicity (20 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman for giving way; I thought that my time would never come. I have here the City of Sheffield News, which costs £100,000 to publish. According to my hon. Friend the Minister, this legislation does not prevent it being published. The top of page 3 mentions the community charge. The bottom of the page states: The Beginner's Guide to the Poll Tax (illustrated)...

Schedule 15: Local Authority Publicity (20 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Can my hon. Friend tell me what sanctions are available to people who feel that somehow a council has gone wrong? To whom do such people appeal and what sanctions and fines, if any, can be imposed?

Schedule 15: Local Authority Publicity (20 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: My hon. Friend may be aware that Mr. Steve King, a former leader of Haringey council, from 1985 to 1987, said: The Council's publicity section was strengthened and given a clear political brief. A Publicity Coordinating Committee was set up consisting, uniquely, of Councillors, Labour Party representatives, trade unions and the voluntary sector. That quote is from the Labour Briefing of 26...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Challenger Tank (Replacement) (26 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: If and when my right hon. Friend considers a replacement for the Chieftain tank, will he bear in mind that the tracks and turret are made in a subsidiary of a Sheffield firm, William Cook plc? Will he take that fact into account in ensuring that the best possible equipment is obtained for the British Army?

Opposition Day: Transport Policies (26 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Having looked at the corporate plan for British Rail I see that it is spending £180 million on new traction and rolling stock on the east coast line. It is also spending money on the west coast main line. To say that it is not spending money is twisting the facts.

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside (Economy) (28 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I should be understating the case if I said that I differ from the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mr. Hinchliffe). The picture of Yorkshire and Humberside that he has painted is peculiar to his perceptions and not an accurate representation of the area. The economy of Yorkshire and Humberside is dependent upon several factors, including the availability and quality of the labour force. I assure...

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside (Economy) (28 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I meant no insult to the hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Gould) but I must tell that hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Mr. Mitchell) that there is nothing in the magazine to say that he is a Member of Parliament. The magazine just has his picture and his name. In that magazine the hon. Gentleman states: In both Birmingham and Sheffield Labour councils have teamed up with local business and the...

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside (Economy) (28 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: As the hon. Member for Derbyshire, North-East (Mr. Barnes) managed to bring north-east Derbyshire into the debate on Northern Ireland, I suppose he can now move the east midlands a little further down the road into north Yorkshire and Humberside. [Interruption.] The hon. Member for Rother Valley (Mr. Barron) usually speaks for the Leader of the Opposition.

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside (Economy) (28 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I did not give the hon. Gentleman credit for being so quick. If he is a little more patient than usual, I shall explain why I used that example. Unemployment in the constituency of the hon. Member for Rother Valley is 14·2 per cent.; in that of the hon. Member for Derbyshire, North-East, it is 11·6 per cent.; in that of the hon. Member for Halifax (Mrs. Mahon), 9·9 per cent.; and in that...

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside (Economy) (28 Jul 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Sheffield, Central has the fifth highest unemployment rate in the country—23·2 per cent. I know the facts and figures. I have spoken before about British Rail trains. The east coast main line to Donacaster is a fantastic line. It will soon be electrified. Money has been spent on it. The London to Leeds service is due to open in October this year. Sadly, the line that Sheffield is on,...
