Clause 79: Determination of Reasonableness of Service Charges (22 Jul 1996)

Mr John Hunt: The hon. Member for Greenwich (Mr. Raynsford) referred to a "Government retreat". I would prefer to describe it as a sensible concession in response to concerns expressed by hon. Members here and in another place. I suppose that the nature of compromises means that they do not and cannot fully satisfy either side, but I am reasonably happy with the solution that my hon. Friend the Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Home Beat Policing (Bromley) (4 Jul 1996)

Mr John Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the current level of home beat policing in the London borough of Bromley. [34526]

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Home Beat Policing (Bromley) (4 Jul 1996)

Mr John Hunt: If my hon. Friend agrees, as I hope he does, that a bobby on the beat represents a strong deterrent to crime as well as giving great encouragement to the general public, can he give a firm undertaking that the recent police restructuring in Bromley will not lead to any diminution in home beat cover?

Policing (London) (2 Dec 1994)

Mr John Hunt: I welcome the opportunity to participate in the debate. In the good old days, we had regular debates on the whole spectrum of life in London. Unfortunately, over the years, that practice has fallen by the parliamentary wayside, but at least today we are debating an aspect of life in London which is of urgent and immediate concern to everyone who lives in the capital. Nationally, Ministers...

Policing (London) (2 Dec 1994)

Mr John Hunt: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I am sure that the recent local problem of police manpower has caused great apprehension among his constituents and mine. That is because the level of protection being provided for them is less than is necessary. We hope that, as a result of my right hon. and learned Friend's speech and the Commissioner's new flexibility, more resources will be allocated to...

Policing (London) (2 Dec 1994)

Mr John Hunt: I am certainly not suggesting that. Any sort of deliberate obstruction should not go unpunished I am simply saying that sometimes foreign cars that have been parked on a single yellow line or in a parking bay, probably quite innocently, are towed away. In other capitals—such as Paris, which I know well—British motorists are treated leniently, and we should reciprocate wherever possible....

Policing (London) (2 Dec 1994)

Mr John Hunt: Is it not possible for the matter to be raised every time that my right hon. and learned Friend answers questions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Identity Cards (18 Jun 1992)

Mr John Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further consideration has been given to the introduction of identity cards; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Identity Cards (18 Jun 1992)

Mr John Hunt: My right hon. and learned Friend's reply is a bit disappointing. Is he aware that there is growing support in the country and, I believe, in the House for a system of identity cards as a means of combating fraud, terrorism and illegal immigration? As most of us carry a variety of plastic cards at all times, what is the possible objection to another one, with a photograph, which would add to...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Taxation (12 Mar 1992)

Mr John Hunt: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people have been relieved of liability to direct taxation as a result of his recent Budget proposals.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Taxation (12 Mar 1992)

Mr John Hunt: Is not it clear that for those lower-paid people and for those whose basic tax rate has been cut to 20p in the pound, only the threat of a Labour Government stands between them and the better deal that they can expect from a continuing Conservative Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Disabled People (18 Nov 1991)

Mr John Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what measures he is taking to ensure that disabled people receive benefits to which they are entitled.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Disabled People (18 Nov 1991)

Mr John Hunt: Should not my right hon. Friend's welcome announcement lead to a further significant take-up of disability benefits? The mobility allowance has increased sevenfold since 1979 and during the same time there has been a substantial increase in disability benefits. All those increases demonstrate the Government's continuing concern for the needs of the disabled.

Orders of the Day — Funeral Expenses (5 Nov 1991)

Mr John Hunt: I am grateful for my right hon. Friend's sympathetic response. Can he give any indication of when the result of the appeal is likely to be known? This matter has been hanging over Mrs. Serbey for so long that it would be helpful to know when the result is likely to be known.

Orders of the Day — Funeral Expenses (5 Nov 1991)

Mr John Hunt: I am very glad to have the opportunity to raise a matter that was first brought to my attention at my constituency surgery on 6 July this year. That morning I received a call from Mrs. E. M. Serbey, an elderly widow living in Hayes, in my constituency. She told me of her distress that her claim for a social fund payment to meet the funeral expenses of a Mr. William H. Newlyn had been...

Orders of the Day — Train Services (Bromley) (2 May 1990)

Mr John Hunt: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Chislehurst (Mr. Sims) for allowing me a few moments to support the convincing case which he has made for the Bromley North line and to reinforce his plea for the retention of through trains on a much-needed and widely used commuter service to London. I tell my hon. Friend the Minister that throughout my 25 years in the House there has always...

Royal Air Force (28 Feb 1990)

Mr John Hunt: After more than 25 yeas as a Member of Parliament, this is the first occasion on which I have ventured to intervene in an RAF debate. I have a feeling that it may be another 25 years before I seek to catch your eye again, Mr. Deputy Speaker, in one of these annual debates. I am pleased to have the opportunity to say just a few words on a matter of great concern and importance to my...

Royal Air Force (28 Feb 1990)

Mr John Hunt: I am pleased to see my hon. Friend the Member for Tayside, North (Mr. Walker) nodding his head, because he was kind enough to participate in an Adjournment debate on the matter last year. No doubt my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State will also recall the Adjournment debate on 16 June 1989 in which I reported the dismay and distress which the proposed closure had caused in my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Channel Tunnel (12 Feb 1990)

Mr John Hunt: Is my hon. Friend aware that the prospect of Channel tunnel traffic hurtling along existing British Rail track in Bromley and elsewhere is horrific and totally unacceptable? Will he therefore look more closely and sympathetically than he has hitherto at the alternative proposals presented by Ove Arup and Partners, which provides for a national rail infrastructure with reduced environmental...

Oral Answers to Questions — Departmental Service (5 Feb 1990)

Mr John Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what assessment he has made of recent improvements in the speed of service provided by his Department; and to what he attributes such improvements.
