Litter (23 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: One of the odd things about litter and waste disposal in Spain is that waste disposal is carried out by private contractors. Also, litter is collected during the hours of darkness. Would my hon. Friend care to consider those points?

Litter (23 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Does my hon. Friend agree that a condition of planning permission should he that people who are given fast food agencies—I accept that they are a good way of obtaining staple food—have to agree to a litter-cleaning clause so that they have to employ people to clean around their area? Will he also consider flyposting and graffiti, which I also think of as a form of litter?

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Voluntary Code of Practice (Part I) (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I missed the speech of the hon. Member for Sheffield, Brightside (Mr. Blunkett). It is a pleasure to listen to the logic of his argument, but it is difficult to follow. I accept that the Local Government Act 1972, introduced by a Conservative Government, sought to distinguish between an officer who worked for the council and those people who were officers initially, but then became known as...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Voluntary Code of Practice (Part I) (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: The hon. Member for Newham, North-West (Mr. Banks) has made more speeches from a sedentary position today than anyone else. I have not yet seen him get up to say anything positive; he merely continues his abuse from a sedentary position—[Interruption.]

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Voluntary Code of Practice (Part I) (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Thank you for your protection—[Interruption.] Now our Member of the European Parliament, the hon. Member for Bradford, South (Mr. Cryer), is joining in. The Daily Mail article stated that a quarter of Glasgow's city councillors were employed by their regional council, Strathclyde. The hon. Member for Brightside and myself had the honour to be members of South Yorkshire county...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Voluntary Code of Practice (Part I) (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I apologise to the hon. Member for Bradford, South; I thought he wished to intervene. Both the hon. Member for Brightside and I were members of South Yorkshire county council and Sheffield city council and had a chance to see if friendship across the political divide could blossom because I had the pleasure of transporting him from Barnsley to Sheffield, where we used to slither in to the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Voluntary Code of Practice (Part I) (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I thank the hon. Member for that wonderful intervention. If he had allowed me to finish the point that I had started to make, I would have answered that. His crystal ball is not as good as it appears to be. Of those 4,000 people, about 58 per cent. are teachers or lecturers, to whom the twin-tracking provision does not apply—[Interruption.] I am sure that the hon. Gentleman has read the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Voluntary Code of Practice (Part I) (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that civil servants are already bound by certain rules? Are Opposition Members changing their view on this issue, bearing in mind what they have said in advocating that the rules for hon. Members should be the same as those applying to councillors?

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing Bill: Members' Interests (13 Jun 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: In cowboy films it is said "White man speak with forked tongue." I will not say that of the hon. Member for Hammersmith, North (Mr. Soley) but he must surely accept that a councillor has far more power and could be a party to influencing decisions. There is no comparison between the interests—[Interruption.] The hon. Member for Ashfield (Mr. Haynes) seems to be something of a comedian, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Urban Development Corporations (24 May 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I thank my hon. Friend for the answer that he gave to the hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Mr. Michie) who, as a former Sheffield city councillor, will probably recollect that the powers are there. The local authority has power to do such things. Various leaders of Sheffield city council are members of the UDC and I am sure that the two bodies talk to each other. Furthermore, Sheffield city...

Opposition Day: Government Publicity (Cost) (16 May 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: It is a fact that some of the Government publicity is born out of the activities of Labour councillors. I had expected the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras (Mr. Dobson) to draw attention to, dissociate himself from and condemn the councillors responsible for this misinformation and propaganda that is being pushed out.

Opposition Day: Government Publicity (Cost) (16 May 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: I have five minutes. With the greatest—

Opposition Day: Government Publicity (Cost) (16 May 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: The only liberty the hon. Member knows is the statue of liberty. I had expected the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras to notice the real scandal of the gross abuse of ratepayers' money being perpetrated by members of his own party. I welcome the fact that the Government give a balanced view to counter some of the activities of Sheffield city council, which seems to think that the...

Opposition Day: Government Publicity (Cost) (16 May 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Government-funded publicity has to compete harder for public attention. Some Government publicity which clearly passes the test of propriety inevitably relates to subjects that have been politically contentious. This is neither new nor surprising. The truth is that Labour is running a campaign of misinformation and misrepresentation about legitimate publicity campaigns that wholly meet the...

Hillsborough Stadium Disaster (17 Apr 1989)

Mr Irvine Patnick: May I join the hon. Members for Sheffield, Brightside (Mr. Blunkett) and Sheffield, Atterliffe (Mr. Duffy) in speaking about the tragedy that occurred in Sheffield? I pay my compliments to the emergency services on the way in which they handled themselves at the weekend and to Sheffield people who volunteered to give accommodation to those from Liverpool who were bereaved. When I visited the...
