Bills Presented: Local Government Finance (18 Jan 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: We are debating five motions. Will my right hon. Friend consider making more concessions, first, on SSAs, and secondly, on removal of the safety nets? I represent an area where it is estimated that the charge will be over £500. If my right hon. Friend would make those two concessions, there would be a considerable difference.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Eastern Europe (9 Jan 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that, despite all the changes in Europe, in Russia and in the satellite countries, Russia still represents a formidable force and that we should in no way drop our defences but should retain our nuclear deterrent until Europe has settled down and a peace settlement can be reached?

Vietnamese Boat People (19 Dec 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that the position was entirely different? The South Vietnamese had fought a bitter struggle with the Americans and, in return, the Americans gave them refuge in their country for the services rendered in that war.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Schools (Safety) (19 Dec 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Is my hon. Friend aware of the excellent work done by St. John Ambulance which teaches first aid in schools? Will she ensure that a first aid course is compulsory in all schools?

Business of the House (14 Dec 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give us a little more information about the Vietnamese debate? Is it intended that we should come to a decision, or merely discuss the matter?

Ministerial and Other Salaries (12 Dec 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: I should like to bring the debate back to the point at issue, which is whether we should increase ministerial salaries. The differential between the pay of Members of Parliament and Ministers is far too narrow. I have always voted against increases in hon. Members' pay, but I do not in any way object to Ministers' salaries because they have immense responsibilities in addition to their...

Business of the House (7 Dec 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. and learned Friend reconsider the proposition of my right hon. Friend the Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath)? The matter of war crimes has reached the stage where it attracts considerable public attention and it should be given time for fuller debate.

Debate on the Address: First Day (21 Nov 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: I shall be as brief as I can, but when one has the privilege of speaking on the first day of the debate one has the opportunity to deal with the entire Queen's Speech. I was especially grateful that the Gracious Speech made security almost the first and foremost issue. It places great priority on national and Western security. Recent changes in Europe are far greater than those experienced...

Debate on the Address: First Day (21 Nov 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: The hon. Lady is right to say that it is almost impossible in countries where four or five factions exist to bring them together and reach a solution. That applies however much international force is brought to bear. Consider, for example, Cyprus. Clearly the problem in the countries to which the hon. Lady refers is more difficult even than the problem in Europe. I welcome the reference in...

Defence Estimates: First Day's Debate (18 Oct 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: It is a great privilege to follow two members of the Select Committee, both of whom, especially its chairman, have contributed greatly to the defence estimates. I want to concentrate on the changing relationship between NATO and the Warsaw pact which has resulted, as my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State said, from the changes in Europe that we have just witnessed. In a defence...

Business of the House (27 Jul 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: In view of the Home Secretary's recent statement on the Hetherington report on war crimes, will the Leader of the House use his influence to get the matter cleared up as rapidly as possible in the interest of justice?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Contrary to suggestions, I missed the party by half an hour. I have impressed on the Home Secretary that it is necessary to tighten the law that relates to these sort of events which are held on private property with the consent of the owner. At the moment there is only one sanction—a £1,000 fine. The amount of money that was made on that occasion was enormous with 11,000 present at up to...

The Army (8 Jun 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: I wish at the outset to thank the Minister for at last allowing the rebuilding of Victoria barracks, Windsor, for which I have been pressing for eight years. My hon. Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Freeman) was good enough to come with me to see the site and, following that, the Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces announced in a written reply that he had given Approval to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Passports (11 May 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: While congratulating my right hon. Friend on the measures that he has taken to speed things up, I ask him how those people who have had to buy temporary passports at a cost of about £7·50, because their applications for passports have not been granted, can get their money refunded when they finally receive their proper passports.

Business of the House (13 Apr 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: In view of the opinion of the House about human rights, can the Leader of the House find time for a debate on the matter? Such a debate would reveal that the human rights issue is now international and not just confined to the Soviet Union or south American or to any specific part of the world. If we could have a debate on the subject—contrary to the views of The Times—we might be able to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Hospitals (Wage and Salary Rates) (21 Mar 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that this flexibility will allow us to adjust local conditions, which will probably result in a more efficient service and better pay?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (14 Mar 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: The people are calling for change, as the hon. Member for Newport, East (Mr. Hughes) said, and that is exactly what they are getting. This is a sensible and prudent Budget. It is the first time in the nation's history that we have begun to pay back the national debt, and I consider that 14 billion towards that repayment will recoup itself in interest charges. If we can go on in that way, we...

Overseas Students (Funding) (7 Mar 1989)

Dr Alan Glyn: Is it not a fact that, because of the rate of exchange, students find it much cheaper to go to the United States than to come here?
