Orders of the Day — Agricultural Training Board Bill (27 Mar 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: We in the alliance welcome this modest Bill, which contains useful proposals, widening the remit of the ATB and encouraging ancillary activities which could be undertaken on farms in association with main agricultural or horticultural businesses. The proposals have been given added point by the news this week that the ATB, responding to high demand, had to re-run a course on free-range...

Orders of the Day — Rillington Bypass (24 Mar 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: The subject of my Adjournment debate is not particularly contentious, but it is important to many of my constituents. The need for a bypass round the village of Rillington has been growing for a long time. The idea was first floated in the early 1970s when Rillington was part of the constituency of Howden. Local people became very much aware of the increasing amount of traffic passing along...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food Labelling (19 Mar 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to improve information made available to the public about the contents of prepared foods.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food Labelling (19 Mar 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: Will the Minister ensure that in the labelling of prepared foods attention will be paid to the quantities of items such as preservatives, salt, fat, sugar and so on? Will that labelling include, if and when applicable, notice of irradiation?

Opposition Day: Disabled People (17 Feb 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: I have pleasure in taking part in this debate because alliance Members supported the passage through the House of what is now the Disabled Persons (Services, Consultation and Representation) Act 1986 and we want to ensure that real progress is made over the next decade to implement fully that Act and other legislation intended to improve the quality of life for disabled people. We also want...

J. E. Hanger and Co. Ltd. (29 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: Has the Minister arranged for someone in his Department to take a personal interest in the dispute on a day-to-day basis so that we can look forward to a resolution of the conflict?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Trident (27 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the latest estimated cost of the Trident missile system; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Trident (27 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: In the event of possible cuts in ballistic missile stocks by the United States and the Soviet Union, do the Government plan to continue British escalation of the arms race in the face of superpower de-escalation?

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Training Board Bill (23 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: We in the alliance support the Bill. The legislation contained in it aims chiefly to assist the farming industry to diversify its activities. Diversification, whether into tourism, crafts or similar ancillary activities, offers an important opportunity to strengthen agriculture, but the Government's wish to be seen to be promoting the Bill arguably emphasises its sensitivity to the current...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Training Board Bill (23 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: I assure the hon. Gentleman and all Members in the Chamber that the alliance will have one policy and that it will come out next week. It is a question, not of may be, but of will be. There will be one unified policy. Anything that applied when the two parties came together will be made one. It will be seen as one unified policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Philippines (21 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he intends to take to support the Government of the Philippines in their attempt to establish lasting peace and democracy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Philippines (21 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: In view of the pressure from some quarters to make the Government of the Philippines abandon negotiations and opt for a military solution to their problems, will the Minister say that the Government fully support the process of negotiation? Will he also ask his EEC colleagues to make a European statement of support for that process?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: City Technology Colleges (20 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress he has made towards the establishment of city technology colleges.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: City Technology Colleges (20 Jan 1987)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: Given that the maintained sector is the responsibility of the Secretary of State and that the establishment of city technology colleges will involve great expenditure, will the right hon. Gentleman give assurances that other areas of education, such as primary and secondary schools, will not be financially penalised as a result?

Social Security (18 Dec 1986)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: I shall refer briefly to two of the instruments in particular. First, I shall mention child benefit. The alliance certainly welcomes the increase of 15p in child benefit, but there is no real reason to congratulate the Government because that sum fails to make good the 1985 cut. That would require a 15p increase. Such an increase has been supported by many different people inside and outside...

Supplementary Benefit (Single Payments) (18 Dec 1986)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: Severe weather payments have rightly been debated in this House in recent weeks. The correlation between very low temperatures and the deaths of elderly people has been well documented since the 1960s. Following the particularly hard winter of 1985–86, the new system of payments for exceptionally cold weather announced by the DHSS last month and now in force are a step in the right...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Common Land (17 Dec 1986)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he will publish the Green Paper on reform of common land legislation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Common Land (17 Dec 1986)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: What proportion of common land does the Secretary of State think is likely to be deregistered when the Government introduce legislation on this matter?

Clause 2: Advisory Committee on School Teachers' Pay and Conditions (10 Dec 1986)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: The most worrying implication of the Bill, not just for the education sector, which is naturally of the utmost importance to the country's future, but for other areas where a similar power may be built in, is the totalitarian control afforded to the Secretary of State. There was much talk by the Minister earlier in the week of "consultation", but that consultation may count for nothing if...

Opposition Day: Tourism (26 Nov 1986)

Mrs Elizabeth Shields: As many hon. Members have said, tourism is a matter of national and international importance. If properly promoted it can bring much confidence and hope, especially to areas which suffer from job losses and unemployment. It is a very positive industry, because it enables councils and individuals alike to be creative in a wide variety of ways. Many jobs result from tourism, and they are...
