STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS, &c. (23 Mar 1979)

Mr Arnold Shaw: My hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Perry Barr (Mr. Rooker) has been congratulated on his choice of subject. If it were not for the fact that he was first on the list of hon. Members able to choose their subjects, the debate would not have taken place. I remind the House of my experience when I introduced a Bill to abolish hare coursing and stag hunting. It was blocked by a Conservative...

STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS, &c. (23 Mar 1979)

Mr Arnold Shaw: I am grateful for that intervention. It brings out another facet of this so-called sport. Perhaps the most savage and cruel activity is that of deer and stag hunting. The horror of the chase has been brought out time and again. It finishes either with the beast being savaged by the hounds and probably killed or, as happens in so many instances, swimming out to sea, and probably drowning, in...

Orders of the Day — CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL (By Order) (6 Mar 1979)

Mr Arnold Shaw: From time to time, Mr. Deputy Speaker, Londoners have the opportunity of speaking on subjects that are of interest to them. I think that the House will agree that this opportunity is one that has come very readily to our ears, in that it deals with a number of subjects that are quite fascinating to London and to London Members. Nevertheless, the nub of the Bill is obviously the question that...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (5 Dec 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: There has been a certain expression of disappointment in different parts of the House regarding the inadequacy of the Bill as a major education Bill, which we have been led to believe that it is. I am very disappointed, in that the Bill does little to change the present divisive system in education which gives so much privilege to a section of the community. One must understand the situation...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (5 Dec 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: I would certainly agree with my hon. Friend. I was looking upon that as one way of increasing the number of teachers in the schools, and attacking the sad unemployment which is to be found among teachers at the present time. In conclusion, may I say to the hon. and learned Member for Runcorn (Mr. Carlisle), whom I am very pleased to see in his place—and I hope and feel sure that he will...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (5 Dec 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: I can only tell the hon. Gentleman that throughout the country there are Tory councils which are not taking up and spending this money.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (5 Dec 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: It is money which has been given to them in the rate support grant. I can only quote my own authority. It was given a miserly allocation of £29,000 which is peanuts in terms of a penny rate and yet the authority refused to take it up. I welcome the Bill and I hope that it has a very swift passage.

Orders of the Day — Education (3 Nov 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: I congratulate the hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith) on the wide range of his discourse and also on his Second Reading speech on a Bill which has not yet been published. At the same time, I express my surprise that he should have felt that we should not be meeting today but should have had a General Election. Frankly, I do not accept that proposition from him. I fancy that if...

Orders of the Day — Education (3 Nov 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: I do not accept that in any way. Perhaps the Opposition are so deafened by their own cries that they mistake them for the cries of the parents of children in those schools. Of course, I accept that some schools are not as good as others. That can happen, and there may be expressions of anxiety from parents, but, overall, the facts prove that the standards in the schools are improving and that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: British Railways (Fares Structure) (2 Aug 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Is my right hon. Friend aware that increasing fares are causing hardship to many commuters? In the hope that any future fare increases will be much smaller, may I ask him to persuade the chairman to make certain that whatever increases take place are made in a way which enables the commuter to budget for a period rather than be subjected to the haphazard increases that have occurred in the past?

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Middle East (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Does my right hon. Friend agree that there is a fine balance between the Arab expectations in regard to territory and the needs of Israel for security? May we be assured that there will be, from Her Majesty's Government, a continuing even-handed policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Voucher Schemes (20 Jun 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Will my right hon. Friend make clearly known in advance to authorities which might take up this experiment the tremendous cost involved, as she illustrated in an answer she gave to me last Friday?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Redbridge (Secondary Reorganisation) (20 Jun 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Does not my right hon. Friend regard as unsatisfactory the reply that she received, which was cobbled up at the last moment by the chairman of the committee without any reference to the committee? Is it not unsatisfactory that that reply extends selection until 1986 and that the authority, which has had at least 10 years to make up its mind, now complains that it has not had enough time? Does...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: RAF Married Quarters (Redecoration) (23 May 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will review the regulations governing the redecoration of RAF married quarters to enable airmen to exercise an option of carrying out redecorations themselves.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: RAF Married Quarters (Redecoration) (23 May 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply, as far as it goes, but can he assure the House that when he reviews the situation there will be full freedom of choice of materials, colour schemes, and so on? Will he make certain that there are safeguards for the existing workforce?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Voluntary Organisations (11 Apr 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Is my right hon. Friend aware that very much depends on the attitudes of local authorities in this matter? Is he aware, too, of the niggardly regard which is paid to this matter by certain local authorities, among which I include my own?

Labour Party's Programme (10 Mar 1978)

Mr Arnold Shaw: In making this winding-up speech—I do not usually make winding-up speeches—I should first thank the hon. Member for Gloucestershire, South (Mr. Cope) for introducing the motion. I thank him on behalf of Transport House, because I can only imagine that the sales of "Labour's Programme for Britain" have increased considerably in the past week. I remind the hon. Gentleman that I had my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: School Places (Allocation) (26 Jul 1977)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Is it not time that the myth of parental choice was dispelled—[Horn. MEMBERS: "Oh."]—and is it still not a fact that choice is governed almost entirely by the length of the parental purse?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices and Consumer Protection: Motorway Service Stations (25 Jul 1977)

Mr Arnold Shaw: asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection whether he will institute an inquiry into the prices charged by motorway service stations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices and Consumer Protection: Motorway Service Stations (25 Jul 1977)

Mr Arnold Shaw: Is not my hon. Friend aware that this scandal has been going on over the years and that it is about time something was done about it? Does not he agree that, in the virtual monopoly situation that appertains at present, the people who need this protection are those who use these service stations? Should he eventually come round to the idea of an investigation, will he look into prices and...
