Mr Irvine Patnick: The hon. Member for Bradford, South (Mr. Cryer) promised to allow me to intervene in his speech, but I now realise that he suffers from galloping amnesia. As my hon. Friend the Member for Lancaster (Dame E. Kellett-Bowman) reminded us, the hon. Gentleman's description of his metropolitan district is typical of any metropolitan district today. I could make similar arguments for Sheffield:...

Mr Irvine Patnick: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. All will be revealed as I make my speech in my way, not in the way in which he wishes it to be made.

Three were closed because they...

Clause 1: TOTAL EXPENDITURE: 1985–86 to 1988–89 (7 Nov 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. It is clear that if the homes are not transferred they will deteriorate. As it is, the council has additional resources to monitor carefully the quality of care offered by the private sector. The transfer would guarantee a proper level of capital investment, while day-to-day care is as good as, or better than, that offered in the public sector. In...

On 3 November it stated: The average family in South Yorkshire pays just 61p a week for their police and fire services. For 38p, they get 2,912 uniformed...
