Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Coal Industry (11 May 1987)

Mr Roy Mason: Does the Secretary of State agree with the often expressed view of the chairman of British Coal that if the National Union of Mineworkers does not accept the proposed changes in working practices no new mines will be sunk or, alternatively, that he will call on the Union of Democratic Mineworkers to do the job?

Mr Roy Mason: There is no doubt that the political wing of the Provisional IRA has had to give way to a more militant campaign since it was shunned in the elections in the Irish Republic.

Is the Secretary of State aware that that will now necessitate a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Anglo-Irish Agreement (12 Mar 1987)

To what extent is he satisfied with the trend in finding jobs for the long-term unemployed, particularly in south Yorkshire and the Barnsley travel-to-work area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Procurement Projects (27 Jan 1987)

Mr Roy Mason: Late deliveries will result in underspend by the Ministry of Defence. Although the Minister cannot give the information that the hon.
