Mr David Lane: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are his latest plans for tackling urban deprivation in the remaining 1970s.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Urban Deprivation (21 Oct 1976)

Mr David Lane: In addition to making clearer the respective responsibilities of the Secretary of State for the Home Department and the Secretary of State for the Environment, would it not be helpful if we had a White Paper or Green Paper explaining the whole of the Government's strategy on deprivation and disadvantage? Does the hon. Gentleman agree that such an explanation is now overdue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Examinations (Schools Council's Proposals) (3 Aug 1976)

Mr David Lane: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will make a statement about the Schools Council's proposal of a single examination to replace GCE and CSE.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Examinations (Schools Council's Proposals) (3 Aug 1976)

Mr David Lane: I am sure that we all welcome the Secretary of State's caution. However, will he look very critically and warily at this proposal in view of the considerable hostility it has aroused already? On this issue at least, will he take a firm stand for academic standards as the paramount consideration in reaching a decision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Homeless Persons (27 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: asked the Secretary of State for the Social Services what further steps he proposes to take to tackle the problems of homeless young people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Homeless Persons (27 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: Does the Secretary of State agree that it is now urgent that the Government should give an effective lead well before the winter? Could he at least give us an assurance that while resources must remain limited, help for young homeless people will not be restricted further as a result of the recent review of public expenditure?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Temporary Permit Entrants (22 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: Are the Home Office records yet computerised? Many of us believe that that would be an important step forward in stopping the kind of abuse which has developed in this very difficult area of immigration control.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Race Relations (22 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Government will publish their comments on the 1974–75 report of the Select Committee on Race Relations and Immigration, "The Organisation of Race Relations Administration".

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Race Relations (22 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: As some of the Select Committee's recommendations were about resources, and in view of recent reports in some Sunday newspapers, will the right hon. Gentleman confirm that the Government are about to announce a new programme of aid to inner city areas?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Schools Council (21 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: I agree with a great deal of what my hon. Friend the Member for Halesowen and Stourbridge (Mr. Stokes) said, but I am a reformer in this matter and' not an abolitionist. I must apologise to the House for the fact that, for a respectable reason, I was not present to hear the earlier part of the debate. I am particularly sorry to have missed the opening speech of my hon. Friend the Member for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal and Nuclear Power (Investment) (19 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: asked the Secretary of State for Energy by what criteria he will decide the long-term investment programmes for coal and nuclear energy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal and Nuclear Power (Investment) (19 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: To make things quite clear, may I ask the Secretary of State to confirm that he has made no prior commitment, either at the Durham miners' gala or elsewhere, to give undue preference to coal and that the paramount criterion in these decisions must be the interest of the consumer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Aid (International Comparisons) (19 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: Will the Minister bear in mind that a number of us on the Opposition Benches hope that he will be left with a still expanding aid programme after the current review of public expenditure?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nato (13 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he next expects to attend a NATO ministerial meeting.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nato (13 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: In view of the further evidence published by the Institute for the Study of Conflict about the world-wide growth of Russian naval power, will the Government, with other members of NATO, take an initiative towards organising a more urgent and realistic response to ensure that Western interests worldwide are properly safeguarded?

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Keeping of Records (8 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: . As a fellow member of the Select Committee on Race Relations and Immigration, the Chairman of which was the mover of the new clause, I support in general, but not in detail, the purpose for which he introduced it. If the right hon. Member for Down, South (Mr. Powell) were ever capable of looking without prejudice at the real problems of race relations in Britain he would realise that no...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Keeping of Records (8 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: So am I. It is one of the most difficult issues in the debate. In most cases nothing of the kind is necessary for trade unions, but I am told that in certain areas of London the trade unions are most reluctant to accept that there is a need for record keeping of any kind, in the trade union or any other sphere of life. The hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer) mentioned local...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Keeping of Records (8 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: I accept that in some areas there is no problem at all, but in other areas the evidence proves that there is. Subsections (1) and (4) are directed specifically at employers, when we should be concerned with other aspects of life, but not in such detail. We should have a clearer idea, either from the Bill or from the Treasury Bench, of the way in which the Government view the need for record...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Report on Resources (8 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: Mr. Lanerose—

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Report on Resources (8 Jul 1976)

Mr David Lane: I am very grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for giving way. I am following him very carefully. He is just coming to the very point of saying what is necessary to deal with the situation that he is describing. He always comes up to this point and sheers away from the logic of what he is saying. I hope very much that he will go a little further.
