Airports Policy (17 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I shall be as brief as possible. I entirely agree with the hon. Member for Manchester, Blackley (Mr. Eastham) about the rail link. I do not deny that I have a constituency interest. I oppose the fifth terminal at Heathrow for three principal reasons—first, access; secondly, increased noise; and thirdly the congestion that would be caused if the Perry Oaks site were moved. I congratulate...

Airports Policy (17 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: My right hon. Friend has given the impression today that terminal 5 will not be constructed at Heathrow in the foreseeable future. That is in direct conflict with what the White Paper says on page 59. Furthermore, there is a widespread belief that the removal of the sludge works must be a first step towards constructing terminal 5. Will my right hon. Friend give an undertaking that terminal 5...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: first day's debate (12 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I support the hon. Member for Dunfermline, East (Mr. Brown) in one respect, and that is in accepting the importance of the role of the Merchant Navy in war. Indeed, my right hon. Friend the Member for Taunton (Sir E. du Cann) also made that point. I was interested in the remarks of the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer). However, we cannot possibly estimate whether Russian policy,...

Airports Policy (5 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: May I congratulate my right hon. Friend on honouring his promise not to construct the fifth terminal? Is he aware that that will bring great relief—[Interruption]. It certainly will not be constructed in this Parliament or the foreseeable future. Is my right hon. Friend aware that my constituents suffer more than others from the noise problems, but are not entitled to proper funds to pay...

Royal Ordnance Factories Trading Fund (22 May 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: A great deal of criticism has been made, quite rightly, about pensions. The hon. Member for Eccles (Mr. Carter-Jones) mentioned that. But nobody has produced a solution that he believes is the right solution for the future of pension rights.

Oral Answers to Questions — Teachers (Pay) (21 May 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is most important that appraisal should be carried out by independent people, so that both teachers and employers feel that it is entirely independent?

Oral Answers to Questions: Secondhand Cookers (Supplementary Benefit) (14 May 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that the important point is not only that the cooker is properly tested, but that its installation is tested?

Business of the House (28 Mar 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: My right hon. Friend will be aware of recent Select Committee leaks. Will he consider initiating a debate on, or conducting an inquiry into, the matter and particularly into leaks in connection with the Privileges Committee?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Crime Prevention (28 Mar 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the most important things is neighbourhood crime prevention schemes? Will he give that idea every encouragement, as that is the only way in which the police can be adequately informed, and by which people can know exactly what is happening in their areas?

Schools (26 Mar 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my right hon. Friend agree that parents must welcome this new approach because the standard of education has given them considerable concern in the past? I draw his attention to the system of appraisal, which, although it will be difficult to establish, is necessary because at the moment there is little difference in pay between the highly qualified teachers and unqualified teachers. Is...

Budget: Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I have a great deal in common with the right hon. Member for Glasgow, Rutherglen (Mr. MacKenzie). First, we have both heard Budget speeches from many Chancellors of the Exchequer. Today's Budget certainly had the virtue of being short and simple. I understand what the right hon. Gentleman said about unemployment, as, I am sure, does the Chancellor of the Exchequer. However, it is not easy to...

Orders of the Day — Immobilisation of Vehicles (12 Mar 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Are the fines sufficiently large to enable the police to speed up the removal of vehicles? The basis of the problem is the removal of the vehicle, not just the clamping of it.

Business of the House (7 Mar 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: The country was not impressed by yesterday's performance. What steps does my right hon. Friend intend to take when the Water (Fluoridation) Bill returns from another place to ensure that that process is not repeated?

Business of the House (21 Feb 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: In view of the historic importance of my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister's visit to the United States, may we influence the Leader of the House to get her to make a statement next week?

Sinking of the General Belgrano (18 Feb 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: The right hon. Gentleman has already agreed that these things happen in war. Does he also agree that information which could on the face of it seem innocent may be impossible to disclose because it leads on to other information which could help the enemy?

Airports Inquiries 1981–1983 (Inspector's Report) (30 Jan 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am grateful for the opportunity to follow the hon. Member for Eccles (Mr. Carter-Jones). I cannot support all that the hon. Member said. Nevertheless, I respect his tremendous experience and his views concerning regional airports. I shall confine my remarks to the reasons why I believe that a fifth terminal should not be constructed at Heathrow. I do not intend to deal with other issues....

Airports Inquiries 1981–1983 (Inspector's Report) (30 Jan 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I agree with my hon. Friend. A vole in the House would be meaningless because the public and the press could interpret it as meaning whatever they wanted it to mean. The Government gave a pledge and I rely on them to make sure that it is honoured.

Airports Inquiries 1981–1983 (Inspector's Report) (30 Jan 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Cervical Cancer Screening (15 Jan 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Although my right hon. and learned Friend has asked local authorities to examine their recall systems, what powers of enforcement does he have?

Business of the House (10 Jan 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: My right hon. Friend will be aware of the interest of hon. Members on both sides of the House in the Prime Minister's recent and successful tour of the world and its consequential negotiations. When may we expect either a statement or a debate on the subject?
