Prayers: Small Businesses (15 May 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I have listened for nearly an hour to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. King) and have enjoyed at least some parts of his speech. On occasion, he was somewhat too party political and euphoric, because nobody in his right mind wants to discourage small businesses, which are the wealth of the nation and from which big businesses grow. My party and, I am sure, the Labour party want...

Prayers: Small Businesses (15 May 1987)

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: Charges of and Penalty for Conspiracy to Defraud (14 May 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I must tread carefully on this matter, not being an expert in legal matters. but I have checked my facts with the Minister. First, I apologise to him on behalf of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Montgomery (Mr. Carlile) for his absence. I am attending on his behalf because he has asked me to do so. I support what the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook) said about extradition....

Airbus A330/A340 Projects (14 May 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I congratulate the Government on the announcement. It is welcome on the Opposition Benches, even if it took the imminence of a general election to bring it forward, with perhaps rather more money than was previously forecast. May I take it that the money is adequate for British Aerospace to participate fully in its 20 per cent. stake in the airbus project?

Northern Ireland (Police) (6 May 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I do not intend to make a speech, but I share the hon. Gentleman's high regard for the RUC. I understand the depth of feeling with which we approach the subject. I have received a letter from the Police Federation for Northern Ireland, which raised three specific points; two of them have been satisfactorily answered by the Minister.

Northern Ireland (Police) (6 May 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: That was the first complaint from the Police Federation, but three items were listed.

Business of the House (30 Apr 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: Can the Leader of the House tell us whether, and when, he expects there to be a debate on the Control of Pollution (Landed Ships Waste) Regulations 1987, which came into force on 6 April, which were laid before Parliament on 16 March and which were prayed against by the Leader of the Opposition, when I gather that there were six days remaining? Will the regulations be debated? What will...

Business of the House (23 Apr 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: May I support the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Mr. Latham), who last week raised with the Leader of the House the Williams Holdings take-over bid for Norcros? Is the Leader of the House aware that this matter is a great problem in the Isle of Wight, where more than 200 employees' jobs are at stake? The bids are supposed to close next week. The right hon. Gentleman supports a Government...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (No. 2) Bill (30 Mar 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I hope that the hon. Member for Hampstead and Highgate (Sir G. Finsberg) has not opened a loophole for other private landlords or managing agents. I am thinking particularly of the parking spaces in front of the block of flats where I live. I hope that what he said does not happen there. I very much agree with his point, but I hope that other people do not jump on to that bandwagon. I hope...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (No. 2) Bill (30 Mar 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I congratulate the Minister on introducing the Bill. However, it is a little late in the Session. It might suffer an instant decline if there is an early general election.

Ways and Means: Amendment of the Law (17 Mar 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: The hon. Member for Halesowen and Stourbridge (Mr. Stokes) said a number of things with which I agree and others with which I profoundly disagree. The hon. Gentleman painted a very glossy picture of Britain. There is no doubt that a lot of people, whether in a family enjoying two incomes or not, have never had it so good—to use a well-known phrase. What happens when we finish selling off...

Ways and Means: Amendment of the Law (17 Mar 1987)

Mr Stephen Ross: I was not complaining that British goods were not being exported, but I did not see many. I was talking largely about goods in shops. I am told that probably oil revenues come into that calculation. That is another worry. What will happen when the oil is finished? When the oil price shot down to $8 a barrel we were in desperate trouble. The pound went down to £1·10 against the dollar. The...
