Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Metropolitan Police (20 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: While all sensible people accept that to save lives extra police are needed in central London to combat terrorism and drug trafficking, which may mean slightly fewer police officers in outer London, I remind my right hon. and learned Friend that people in outer London remain very concerned about crime and hope that at some time in future, and before very long, additional police officers can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Inward Investment (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Does my right hon. Friend accept that the United Kingdom's success on inward investment depends partly on the image of our country, which is symbolised by our national flag, the Union Jack? Will he join me in deploring the conduct of the Scottish Liberal party in seeking to drop the use of the Union flag?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Privatisation Proceeds (13 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the contribution of forecast privatisation proceeds in 1998–99 to the expenditure plans set out in his "Financial Statement and Budget Report". [18520]

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Privatisation Proceeds (13 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: I believe that £l½ billion works out at about £80 a head for every man, woman and child in the UK. If the Labour party were to attempt to stop privatisation, would not it have to increase the rate of VAT by about 1 per cent. or income tax by about 1p in the pound, or a bit of each, to raise the same amount of money?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Beef Ban (6 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is his policy on the ban by European member states on British beef.[17557]

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Beef Ban (6 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Is it not ridiculous for the European Commission in Brussels to imply that British beef is safe for British people, but dangerous for people in every other country in the world? The ban upsets the livelihood of our farmers and is costing our taxpayers £3 billion. As the policy was welcomed by the shadow Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the hon. Member for Edinburgh, East (Dr....

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: King Kenneth III (5 Mar 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Did not the late Hugh Gaitskell insist that constitutional Bills should be taken on the Floor of the House?

Opposition Day: National Health Service (24 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: My constituents and those of my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Mr. Deva) are extremely keen for the excellent PFI scheme to reconstruct the West Middlesex university hospital to go ahead without delay. My right hon. Friend and his colleagues have been giving us all the help that they can. However, our constituents will be extremely unimpressed when we tell them that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Overseas Aid Budget (United Nations Target) (24 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Can my hon. Friend confirm that a great deal of our development aid has been highly successful—for example, in India, where the economy is now growing well and the standards of living are improving every year? Can he also confirm that our development aid amounts to more than £2 billion a year, which works out at well over £100 per United Kingdom household; and that we would be able to...

West Middlesex University Hospital (3 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: I warmly congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Mr. Deva) on his initiative and success in winning the ballot for tonight's debate on West Middlesex University hospital. He is second to none in his zeal and energy in fighting for all his constituents. Many of my constituents use the West Middlesex University hospital. It is only one mile from the Twickenham...

Local Government Finance (3 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: It is a pleasure to have been invited to take part in the debate, but I was astonished by the temerity of the hon. Member for Pendle (Mr. Prentice)—if he would give me his attention for one second—when he referred to Hammersmith bridge, as the news of its closure was extraordinarily sudden. We were given only a week or two's notice. Hammersmith and Fulham council simply failed to inspect...

Local Government Finance (3 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: If the hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I will not give way as I have only a few minutes left. The council has been run by the Liberal Democrat party since 1984. In order to build the civic centre, the council borrowed money at a high fixed rate of interest. It was about seven or eight years ago, when interest rates were high. Of course, it was not long before interest rates began to fall,...

Local Government Finance (3 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: It is a Labour council.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Millennium Exhibition (3 Feb 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: As well as all those other schemes across the country, does not my right hon. Friend think that people at home and abroad will be absolutely astonished and utterly amazed if we get to the millennium—once in a thousand years—without some grand, national, central exhibition to celebrate it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Royal Yacht (27 Jan 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Will my right hon. Friend confirm my arithmetic that £60 million, when divided among the United Kingdom's population of 58 million, works out at about £1 per head, or about 20p per head per year over five years? Is it not unbelievably small-minded of Opposition Members to carp about such a small sum that can do such a great deal to generate employment and exports?

Opposition Day: National Health Service (21 Jan 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. There is a power cut at No. 3, Dean's yard which began earlier today. As a result, secretaries to hon. Members who work there have been unable to carry out their work properly; many of them have called it a day and gone home, to the detriment of the constituents of right hon. and hon. Members. Could you, Madam Deputy Speaker, ask the Serjeant at Arms...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (21 Jan 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Is my right hon. Friend willing to comment on the private finance initiative in relation to West Middlesex University hospital, which, as he and the Under-Secretary are well aware, is a matter of eager and enthusiastic interest to my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Mr. Deva) and to me? We very much hope that the scheme can go ahead lickety-spit without delay. Can he give...

Points of Order (16 Jan 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: I am the hon. Member for Twickenham, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (16 Jan 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: I hope I will be given at least equal time to reply.

Points of Order (16 Jan 1997)

Mr Toby Jessel: Further to that point of order, Madam Speaker. The hon. Lady has suffered a lapse of memory. She has forgotten her letter to The Times of 20 August in which she supported an increase in the allocation of slots for aircraft using Heathrow—
