Results 101–120 of 1356 for speaker:Dr Alan Glyn

Orders of the Day — Firearms (Amendment) Bill (21 Jan 1988)

Dr Alan Glyn: Thousands of visitors come to this country to shoot. Will the acquisition of a licence not be extremely difficult? Will it not spoil the shooting rights of people who have many visitors over to this country for the shooting?

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 1988)

Dr Alan Glyn: There is a great deal of concern in the country that, when the driver of a motor vehicle kills somebody, there appears to be no machinery, even in this Bill, by which he can be charged with manslaughter if that is appropriate.

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Ten-Minute Bills (18 Jan 1988)

Dr Alan Glyn: When the Procedure Committee sits, will my right hon. Friend ask it to consider recommending the reintroduction of the 10-minute limit on speeches? As he knows, in 1979 and 1984 the House agreed to limit speeches to 10 minutes—

Business of the House (17 Dec 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. Friend consider having a debate on the wider issues of the organisation and structure of the National Health Service, not so much on the narrow point raised by the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner), but on the whole issue of the way in which it should be financed, organised and be made accountable?

Public Accounts (3 Dec 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: I join hon. Members on both sides of the House in commending the work of the Public Accounts Committee and especially commend the right hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Sheldon), who has chaired it with considerable distinction. After all, it is not only the most senior Select Committee but it is our constituents' watch-dog over the Executive and expenditure. One of the most important...

Public Accounts (3 Dec 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that we have a peculiar security problem with regard to the number o f special people that the force has to protect?

Orders of the Day — Education Reform Bill (1 Dec 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: My right hon. Friend will be aware that, under the Butler Act— the Education Act 1944 — religious education is compulsory. That is still the case, but it is not specifically stated in the curriculum. Will he make a change to clause 1(2)(a) to deal with that?

Primary Health Care (25 Nov 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: If my hon. Friend is to put a greater strain on general practitioners and increase their primary services, is he satisfied that they will be given sufficient equipment to carry that out?

Defence (27 Oct 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am sure that the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn) will forgive me if I do not follow his argument, although, curiously, there are some points on which I share his opinion. As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State said, this debate is about deterrence and diplomacy. The Government have displayed both in all their actions. Page 20 of the Defence Estimates shows this...

Defence (27 Oct 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: I cannot accept the hon. Gentleman's philosophy that we are responsible for what happens in Russia. I am sure that he would agree that there were other economic factors that stopped the Americans assisting Russia. They did so for a short time during Trotsky's era. Stalin stamped on the arrangements and the whole of the new economic policy was abandoned.

Defence (27 Oct 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Whether he wanted Trotsky or not, Stalin did not. That is what happened. It is historical fact. Gorbachev obviously wants to get his country on its feet and his only way of doing that is to cut down on arms. However, I still admire the stand taken by the United States in its refusal to be pushed into a hasty agreement. Any agreement must be mutual and verifiable and the United States is...

Orders of the Day — Arms Control and Disarmament (Privileges and Immunities) Bill (22 Oct 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: I agree with the hon. Member for Leyton (Mr. Cohen) on one point, and that is that we all welcome disarmament. There is a possibility of a nuclear outburst, but as long as we can preserve our overruling strength, it is unlikely. I welcome this small Bill, which has been widened by the House. It is a start to disarmament, particularly nuclear disarmament, in accordance with the Stockholm...

Orders of the Day — Arms Control and Disarmament (Privileges and Immunities) Bill (22 Oct 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: The hon. Gentleman has raised a most interesting point. However, this is only a reciprocal arrangement that will work between Great Britain and the Soviet Union through the United States. It is not a direct agreement and we are only the third party. As far as I can see, we have no rights at all in the Soviet Union.

Orders of the Day — Arms Control and Disarmament (Privileges and Immunities) Bill (22 Oct 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. and learned Friend tell us whether the Bill will have to be extended to cover chemical and biological weapons?

Prayers: Debate on the Address (25 Jun 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am afraid that I am not very familiar with the problems of Scotland, although I spent a certain amount of my youth there. However, I am certain that there are as many Scottish Members in Scotland who would not like devolution as there are Scottish Members who would, but one must strike a balance between the two. After eight years of strict economies we have a platform on which we can...

Business of the House (11 May 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Since my right hon. Friend has said that right hon. and hon. Members will be Members of Parliament until Monday, is he able to say when returning officers will be able to issue the documents so that hon. Members can forward their nominations, bearing in mind that there is to be a bank holiday?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: USA-USSR (Summit Meeting) (22 Apr 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that while the requirements of the United States may be different from ours it is, nevertheless, vital that in any agreement the United States and Great Britain act together to reach an agreement that secures not only their security but ours as well?

Social Security (2 Apr 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: Is my hon. Friend aware that in counties such as Berkshire the cost of residential accommodation is extremely high because of the capital values of property?

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am honoured to follow the speech of the right hon. Member for Glasgow, Hillhead (Mr. Jenkins) who altered the jury system in 1967. I support the new clause that has been introduced with clarity by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Southport (Sir I. Percival), and I believe that the death penalty is a deterrent. I disagree with my right hon. Friend the Member for Old Bexley...

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Dr Alan Glyn: The Government introduced it in Northern Ireland for reasons with which I do not agree. With respect, that is my argument. I did not want to see it remain in Northern Ireland because it was right. The acts of terrorism would be reduced considerably if we had the death penalty. If we asked the police or the military—
