Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Interest Rates (13 Mar 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Will the Chancellor explain why he is keeping interest rates at an artificial level, if not for political and electoral reasons?

Orders of the Day — BSE Crisis (17 Feb 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: We have listened to the Minister rampaging, but we have not received any answers. The reason is that he does not have answers to give us. He has lost the confidence of the House, and has failed to obtain any agreement from Europe. I am not surprised about that. We all recall that, in June 1996, following the Florence meeting, the Prime Minister said in the House that the ban would be lifted...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food Safety (6 Feb 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what bodies and committees his Ministry consults regularly on food safety policies; and how many of these represent scientific interests. [13110]

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food Safety (6 Feb 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Does the Minister remember that, 12 months ago, the Prime Minister rubbished the Labour party proposal to set up a food standards agency, yet his Department recently announced the setting up of a food safety council? Is that not another U-turn by his discredited Government? Is it not an attempt to steal Labour's clothes? Can he assure us that the council will not be a tame tabby cat for food...

Ford (Halewood) (5 Feb 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: I was interested in what the Minister said about productivity. Does he agree with figures that show that it is £600 cheaper to produce the vehicle in Britain than it is in Germany?

Intensive Care (22 Jan 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: The debate has been initiated by my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, East so it is important that the Minister deals with the points that he raised, but I hope that he will leave himself time to say why the report was not given to my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington, South which, as I said earlier, prevented him from having all the information that he needed for yesterday's debate.

Intensive Care (22 Jan 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: First, let me pay tribute to Warrington hospital, of which we are all proud. It has a dedicated staff, an efficient chief executive and a chairman who takes a deep interest in what goes on there. Warrington has a population of 200,000, which is growing year by year. The hospital, however, must also serve the surrounding region, which brings the total number to 350,000. At present, there are...

Intensive Care (22 Jan 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: I hope that not only that report, but similar reports from every other region, will be released to the Members of Parliament who need to see them. Otherwise, it will be impossible for us to be well informed and to do the job that our constituents sent us here to do. That shows above all else that there must be a crisis in intensive care throughout England and Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Jan 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Tuesday 14 January. [9002]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Jan 1997)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Is the Deputy Prime Minister aware that on 6 March 1996 the Secretary of State for Health gave an assurance that he would keep a close eye on intensive care capacity? Despite that assurance, a lack of intensive care beds in Warrington hospital means that operations are being cancelled and patients are being transferred to hospitals as far away as Leeds. That is happening not just in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government Finance (17 Dec 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received from the local authority associations on the 1997 revenue support grant settlement. [7852]

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government Finance (17 Dec 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Does the Minister agree that his Government give with one hand and take with the other? For the penny reduction in income tax, the public will have to pay at least 2p in council tax. Does the Minister realise that, if the Government were a company, they would be prosecuted for fraud?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 18 July. [36435]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Will the Prime Minister explain why a Treasury document shows that, under this Government, the economy is set to decline to the level of those of Brazil, Thailand and Mexico? Is not that a telling indictment of the Government's policy?

Deer (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill [Lords]: Members' Salaries (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: The House would be badly advised to try to interfere in the married bliss of the hon. Members for Macclesfield (Mr. Winterton) and for Congleton (Mrs. Winterton). The right hon. Member for Fareham (Sir P. Lloyd) made a dangerous suggestion. The House would be condemned if it continued to set hon. Members' salaries. That would be to go down the wrong path. I hope that the Leader of the House...

Mr Doug Hoyle: Will the Prime Minister confirm that the Government's attacks on the Labour party are being scrapped because they were not hurting and not working?

European Council, Florence (24 Jun 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Does the Prime Minister remember that on 21 May he said to us that he would be seeking a clear framework that would lead to the lifting of the European ban and the worldwide ban on British beef? However, he has returned with an agreement that gives us no timetable, no dates and no guarantees. He could have got that agreement without the policy of non-co-operation. He has soured relations with...

European Council, Florence (24 Jun 1996)

Mr Doug Hoyle: Yes, I shall. The Prime Minister has got nothing for Britain. When will the ban be lifted by Europe and when will the worldwide ban be lifted?
