Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: American Bases (3 May 1983)

Mr Reg Race: Why did the Minister not publish the right figures in the first place? Who is fooling who? Are President Reagan and his officials fooling the Minister, or is the Minister fooling and misleading the House by giving it misleading and untrue information about the number of American bases? Why should the British people not know how many American bases, run by foreign powers, are on British soil?

Mr Reg Race: As the House of Commons' favourite own-goal merchant, the Minister for Consumer Affairs, was warned two years ago by his own Department of the danger of contaminated blood supplies coming from the United States, will the Prime Minister rectify that deplorable and disgraceful mistake by immediately authorising the necessary expenditure within the National Health Service to make Britain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nuclear Weapons (29 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: Is it not one of the Secretary of State's basic functions to hide the truth from the people? Given the answer that he has just provided, is it not true that he has neglected the fact that there is already massive overkill among the nuclear super powers and that, taking all warheads together—strategic, theatre and tactical—the West has the majority of warheads? If those facts were known,...

Urban Development (28 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: I do not represent a docklands constituency, but a large number of my constituents are in acute housing need. I am moved to speak on the order by the outrageous comments of the hon. Member for Ravensbourne (Mr. Hunt). It is the view of the Conservative party that people in London should increasingly depend upon the whims of the private market for the provision of private housing. According to...

Urban Development (28 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: That is his salary as a member of the board.

Urban Development (28 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: It is important to note where their interests lie. They have not been elected to serve on a body to look after the interests of the local people. They are paid to do a hatchet job for the Conservative party. That is why they were put there by the former Secretary of State for the Environment. In my opinion—I expect that it is shared by many of my hon. Friends—it was an extremely foolish...

Low Pay (18 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: Before the hon. Gentleman leaves the subject of the rigidities in the labour market, will he comment on the freedom of employers to pay low wages in non-wages council industries? For example, is he aware that there is a firm in my constituency that pays women workers £27 a week for a 40-hour week, with compulsory overtime on top of that, and never employs anybody for longer than 12 months...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: Does the Prime Minister not realise that the creation of mass unemployment implies the creation of mass poverty?

Mr Reg Race: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received concerning the definition of offensive weapons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Offensive Weapons (3 Mar 1983)

Mr Reg Race: In view of the widespread concern in many communities about the new stop and search powers of the police, does the Minister agree that it is about time that there was a change in the definition of "offensive weapon" to exclude such everyday items as coins and bunches of keys? Is he aware that many people believe that the police will use that very wide definition of "offensive weapon" to stop...

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Electricity Generation (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Reg Race: I have no doubt that the House will be glad that the CEGB has got round to publishing the report after months of delay. Does the report look at nuclear power on the basis of current rather than historic costs, because we cannot have a comparison of coal, oil and nuclear power based on historic costs for nuclear power and current costs for coal and oil? Has the CEGB taken that major factor...
