Companies (Millennium Computer Compliance) Bill: EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES (AMENDMENT) (No. 2) BILL (28 Feb 1997)

Mr Alf Morris: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is it not grossly demeaning of this honourable House that we are open to the accusation of ignoring even as worthy a Bill as the one to help severely handicapped children, by a Government Whip—

Companies (Millennium Computer Compliance) Bill: EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES (AMENDMENT) (No. 2) BILL (28 Feb 1997)

Mr Alf Morris: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (24 Feb 1997)

Mr Alf Morris: The Secretary of State's long and, at times, repetitive speech reminded me of a celebrated apology by George Bernard Shaw. I'm sorry", he said, for writing at such length. There wasn't time to write more briefly. The right hon. Gentleman spoke at greater length than my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith), but not to more effect. Anyone who believes, as the...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (24 Feb 1997)

Mr Alf Morris: I must proceed. The Conservatives contested its founding principles when the NHS was created and still seek to undermine them today. As the Prime Minister was beside himself to remind me at an hour-long meeting that I had with him about the Government's obstruction of a private Member's Bill that I was then promoting—my Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill—in the third year of his...

Witness Protection Bill (31 Jan 1997)

Mr Alf Morris: Will the Minister give way?

Haemophiliacs (Compensation) (11 Dec 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: I was glad to learn that the hon. Member for Hendon, South (Mr. Marshall) had secured this timely debate, and I most warmly endorse his moving plea. Sadly, more than 60 of the victims of the tragedy have already gone to their graves with a deep sense of injustice. The achievement of elementary justice for some very needful people is at the heart of our campaign, which, as the hon. Member...

Gulf War Illness (10 Dec 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: Madam Speaker, I intervene briefly as the honorary parliamentary adviser to the Royal British Legion. Is the Minister aware that the use of organophosphates much more widely than was previously reported is seen as an extremely important issue by many veterans of the Gulf war? What estimate has he now made of the number of service men and women who were exposed to the effects of...

Gulf War Illness (10 Dec 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: Seven hundred thousand.

Social Security (5 Dec 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: It's nothing short of a scandal that this major reversal of policy should have taken effect without the opportunity for Parliament to debate these amending regulations: it's a betrayal of trust. They are not my words. They are quoted from a statement made to Ministers last summer by Lord Rix, whose long and distinguished services to disabled people, more especially those with severe learning...

Business of the House (5 Dec 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: I intervene as honorary parliamentary adviser to the Royal British Legion. Is it not totally unpardonable for the Secretary of State for Social Security to have written to the Chief Secretary about how to divide the ex-service community? When shall we have a statement from him? Will the ministerial correspondence be published in full? And why make a plea to Japanese business men to help the...

EMU Regulations (25 Nov 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: The Chancellor said it was his purpose this afternoon to clear up all the misconceptions. Was not one of the main misconceptions that of the Prime Minister in claiming last Thursday—and repeatedly—that there had already been full parliamentary scrutiny in European Standing Committee B?

Business of the House (7 Nov 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: As the Leader of the House will be aware, the Social Security (Claims and Payments Etc.) Amendment Regulations 1996 have reduced or withdrawn the mobility allowance from large numbers of severely disabled people, not least those with severe learning difficulties. Is it not quite wrong that we have had no opportunity to debate those regulations? When shall we be debating them?

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (23 Oct 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: Whatever anyone may think of the Gracious Speech, it has scant relevance to the key issues now confronting the people of Manchester. As the House knows, I am in my 33rd year as a representative here of my native city; and I take this first opportunity in the new Session to draw attention to some of the most pressing issues facing us. Saturday 15 June 1996 is a date that will long linger in...

Privilege (16 Oct 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the quiet dignity with which he is making his submission today. In doing so, as he knows, I speak as a member for quite some time of the Privileges Committee of the House. Will he accept, as I am sure he does, that if a buck has to stop, it may not necessarily stop with the particular hon. Member against whom allegations are made? Junior Whips, Madam...

Privilege (16 Oct 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: Their work is choreographed. I am saying that the Patronage Secretary may be involved. Others higher up may be involved. It may be that this has to be a very wide-ranging inquiry, not just about one hon. Member.

Adjournment (Summer) (24 Jul 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: There are three urgent and important issues I want briefly to address. Each of them merits a ministerial response before the House rises for the summer recess. First, I want to raise Lord Rix's moving plea, in a letter to the Leader of the House, for a fair wind for his Disabled Persons and Carers (Short-term Breaks) Bill. His Bill won unanimous support in the Lords and I was delighted to be...

Prayers: Co-operative Movement (17 Jul 1996)

Mr Alf Morris: I want most warmly to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mr. Purchase) on his initiative in securing this important debate. He appreciates that I could not have been here from the outset without cancelling, at very short notice, a commitment to constituents that I made more than two months ago. The House will have sensed that, for many of us, this is a...
