Rate Support Grant (13 Jan 1987)

Mr John Powley: Local government will no doubt welcome the extra £1 billion by way of grant entitlement that will come from the taxpayer to increase grant entitlement. Indeed, I also welcome that extra £1 billion. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that Norfolk, a traditionally economic local authority, will have its grant entitlement increased as a result of his announcement this afternoon and thus prove...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (15 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: I am pleased to support my hon. Friend the Member for Norwich, North (Mr. Thompson) and to speak on a matter that is of grave importance both for this country and for the free world. A number of my hon. Friends have expressed a great deal of sympathy for the Labour party, the Social Democratic party and the Liberal party in their dilemma. I differ from my hon. Friends in that respect because...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (15 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: That would be the inevitable result.

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (15 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: The policies agreed at the Liberal party's conference this year would inevitably lead to the removal of American bases. There is no question about that. The Opposition parties are trying to confuse us. There is an SDP policy, a Liberal party policy and a joint SDP-Liberal policy, which has not been approved by either party conference. The inevitable result of Liberal party policies agreed at...

Mr John Powley: asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement about the latest productivity in British Coal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: British Coal (15 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: Does not British Coal deserve the heartfelt congratulations of the House and the country for the productivity improvements that it has achieved, which have resulted in a much more economic price for coal and more coal being delivered—which will help inflation and old-age pensioners during a severe winter? Would my hon. Friend care to speculate whether these improvements would have been...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Pay and Conditions Bill (8 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: Does my hon. Friend agree that we should view the Bill, not in isolation, but together with the Education Act 1986? The advantages of this Bill should be taken in conjunction with the great responsibilities given to parents, governors, and teachers properly to manage their affairs and the curriculum within a school.

Orders of the Day — Fuel Poverty (2 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: I accept entirely the right hon. Gentleman's point about the importance of loft insulation. Is he aware that, despite the Government's allocation of sums to local authorities for home insulation schemes, in each of the past five years local authorities have underspent considerably, sometimes by as much as one third of the sum allocated? Does he agree that they should make greater efforts to...

Mr John Powley: It was me.

Orders of the Day — Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Bill (1 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: I thought that I heard the name correctly, Mr. Deputy Speaker, but I would have given way to my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Howell), had it been your wish. Two of my hon. Friends will be unable to speak this evening. My hon. Friend the Member for Mid-Norfolk (Mr. Ryder) is, regrettably, absent because of his temporary indisposition. I pay tribute to him for his work behind...

Orders of the Day — Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Bill (1 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for that addition. There cannot be many people born in East Anglia who do not have a high regard for the Broads, commonly referred to as the Norfolk Broads, which include the Suffolk Broads. Of late, the Broads have attracted people from a much wider area than East Anglia. They are now known internationally and people throughout the world hold them in high...

Orders of the Day — Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Bill (1 Dec 1986)

Mr John Powley: Of course, I recognise the work that has been done by those eight local authorities. My hon. Friend has great experience from his membership of Norfolk county council. However, any policy put forward in the past has to be considered and approved by the constituent authorities, and the resolution may not necessarily be accepted by all eight local authorities. The new authority will have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Public Sector Housebuilding (19 Nov 1986)

Mr John Powley: May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the fact that most district councils and local authorities own great acres of land in small and medium-sized parcels, of which they could easily dispose to private builders and developers, thus allowing the private sector to build houses for owner-occupation? Would this not relieve many housing waiting lists?

Business of the House (13 Nov 1986)

Mr John Powley: May I draw the attention of my right hon. Friend to the part of Her Majesty's Speech in which she said: A Bill will be introduced to facilitate the conservation and management of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads."? While that may not be of worldwide interest—[HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."]—to other constituencies, may I urge my right hon. Friend to facilitate the introduction of that Bill at...

Orders of the Day — Education and Family Poverty (13 Nov 1986)

Mr John Powley: Does my right hon. Friend confirm my view that city technology colleges should be complementary to the existing state system rather than be in competition with it and perhaps with existing technical colleges? They should complement one another and not compete.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Planning Bill: Hazardous Substances Authorities (3 Nov 1986)

Mr John Powley: Members of the Committee will recall that I moved some amendments in Committee to which the Minister gave a favourable response. On Report, he gave an undertaking that amendments reflecting the comments that had been made in Committee would be moved in the other place. I commend and thank my hon. Friend the Minister for the diligent way in which he dealt with the concerns expressed in...
