Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Crime Statistics (16 Jul 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I thank my hon. Friend for that information. I do not wish to sound complacent, but it proves that it is contrary to the widely-held belief. Can my hon. Friend comment on the figures for petty crime, such as car thefts, break-ins and similar crimes, and, if so, will he elaborate?

Prayers: Inner Cities (Policing) (17 Jul 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: As this is my maiden speech, I am pleased to pay tribute to my predecessor, Sir John Osborn. I am sure that that tribute will be echoed throughout the House. The stewardship of the constituency was in his hands for over 25 years and during that period he was one of the most respected and valued Members of the House. His work on behalf of his constituents was renowned, and as one of them I...

Prayers: Inner Cities (Policing) (17 Jul 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I accept that I am a new boy. If I understand the hon. Gentleman correctly, he is saying that the party is to blame, not the individual. I said that it is individual councils and individual people who are to blame. If that is put on a reciprocal basis, I accept it, but for the hon. Gentleman to damn the whole party without illustrating that at all, I find is not worthy of those who sit on the...

Polytechnics and Inner London (22 Jul 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Does my right hon. Friend's statement result from the fact that, during the abolition of metropolitan county councils, many councils not only did tombstone funding but prepared for life after death? What powers will he take unto himself to ensure that councils that try to burn the midnight oil are penalised? What action will he take against councillors who do a similar thing? What happens...

Rate Support Grant (England) (23 Jul 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Will my right hon. Friend explain the total amount of overspend for local authorities and the effect that that is having on other authorities? What news can he give me for the residents of Sheffield, Hallam'? Although I realise that the city is not rate-capped, the last time that rate capping occurred, the hike in rates was penal and extra rates were levied by my hon. Friend the Member for...

Orders of the Day — Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill (4 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: The hon. Member has missed a fundamental point. In my experience, land ownership is a jigsaw and we need an organisation to bring the pieces together.

Unemployed People (Training) (18 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Will my right hon. Friend ensure that the MSC gives training in the skills that are needed to fill vacancies in Sheffield — [Interruption.] I do not interrupt Labour Members, so I hope that they will not interrupt me. In Sheffield there is a mismatch between vacancies and jobs.

Unemployed People (Training) (18 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Will my right hon. Friend ensure that training is made available to people who require jobs? I have listened to Labour Members, and they seem to enjoy the fact that people such as my daughter have been unemployed and unable to obtain retraining in skills for jobs with vacancies.

Points of Order (18 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: No, with respect.

Prayers: Coalfield Communities (20 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: The hon. Gentleman talks about matchstick jobs. Real jobs exist. Jobs are available, but the workers are not correctly skilled for them. Opposition Members should accept that training is available for vacancies. They seem to derive spurious pleasure from saying that unemployment is insoluble. I do not accept that.

Clause 2: Short Title, Commencement and Extent (25 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Members of Sheffield city council are allowed four minutes to speak. As a member of that council, I know that if one's speech is not finished within four minutes the silence is deafening. I shall try to finish this speech within four minutes. Land and buildings in inner cities are a jigsaw of ownership and problems. Somehow, the road layout and services do not match what is needed now or in...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill (30 Nov 1987)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Does not the fact that capital receipts are available reduce borrowing, so that, in effect, the local authority has the use of such money?
