Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: School Closures (28 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Does the Under-Secretary recognise that I gained the distinct impression, after a meeting with the parents of children of the South Brent primary school in Devon, that they would like to see that 110-year-old school closed and a new one provided? Will he ensure that the local authority gets adequate financial assistance to enable it to provide that new school?

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Telephone Charges (27 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether he telephoned any of the British Telecom shareholders instead of sending them letters that invaded their privacy for the sake of party political propaganda? I have had letters from my new constituency in Devon, from professional people, objecting very much to this unsolicited mail. Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether there was any public expense...

Business of the House (9 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Has the right hon. Gentleman's attention been drawn to early-day motion 877 on the Prime Minister's statements on nurses' pay? [That this House notes that on Thursday 2nd April, Official Report, column 1220, the Prime Minister said: `Nurses' pay has increased by 23 per cent. over and above inflation since the Government came into office'; whilst on Tuesday 7th April, Official Report, column...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Unemployment (8 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Will the Minister confirm that one of the ways in which the Government are trying to reduce unemployment is by encouraging health boards to use YTS youths in the hospitals and paying them £27·50 a week, instead of employing further, although cheap, nursing labour? Is he aware that five health boards in Scotland already employ 300 of those youngsters at pittance wages? This is no excuse for...

Privatisation (Multiple Share Applications) (7 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: On a further point of order, Mr. Speaker. I wish to discuss yesterday's exchanges, which have been referred to by my hon. Friend the Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours) and which are recorded in column 23 of the Official Report. You will recollect, Mr. Speaker, that you intervened in the speech of my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley) and said :...

Privatisation (Multiple Share Applications) (7 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: I am suggesting that your intervention was misplaced because my right hon. Friend was not making, and never did make, specific charges. The charges have been admitted to in the press by the two hon. Gentlemen involved. The point at issue for you, Mr. Speaker, is how the good name and integrity of the House is protected in view of the reprehensible behaviour of those two hon. Members.

Mr Willie Hamilton: rose——

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services>: NHS (Costs) (7 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Is the Minister aware that when similar claims were made in Scotland yesterday the genteel members of the Royal College of Nursing howled the Minister down? Nobody in the country, not least the 1986 Select Committee report on expenditure in the social services, believes a word of the boasts that the right hon. Gentleman continually makes about the Health Service. Is he aware that if we take...

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: I entirely agree with the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup ( Mr. Heath) who said in his excellent speech that, whatever the pros and cons of capital punishment, it is a wholly inadequate instrument for dealing with crime. All the lawyers in all parts of the House have recognised the enormous contradictions in the clause. If we in our wisdom or otherwise pass it into law we will...

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: No doubt the hon. Lady also promised at the last election to deal with law and order. One of the reasons why the Conservative party is sensitive about these matters is precisely that it has thrown hundreds of millions of pounds at the problem of law and order, but crime rates have got remorselessly worse. The Conservatives are seeking to convince the House and the public that one of the...

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: I am glad to hear that. It shows that in certain special cases there can be some degree of unanimity. When they see a worthy cause lawyers can come to some measure of agreement. Several hon. Members spoke about the absurdities inherent in the Homicide Act 1957. I was in the House at the time and I remember the attempts to categorise murder. Murder by shooting was evil — to use the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Countryside Conservation (1 Apr 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Will the Minister take time today to read the back page of The Western Morning News? Had he recognised that, according to this report, in the countryside of the south-west: Rivers were getting dirtier with pollution of 40 per cent. between 1980 and 1985"? Does he recognise that the countryside people down there are drinking discoloured and unpleasant tasting water as a direct result of the...

Orders of the Day — Nurses' Pay and Conditions (26 Mar 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: I intend to speak at a little length about nurses' pay and conditions of work. The House will know that I am sponsored by COHSE — the Confederation of Health Service Employees. It has supplied me with writtten evidence that it and others have put before the pay review board that was set up by the Government in 1984. I hope that the Minister has read and digested that document. It is a...

Orders of the Day — Nurses' Pay and Conditions (26 Mar 1987)

Mr Willie Hamilton: The Minister is nodding assent; she knows what I am talking about. When he enters the police force, a man does not have similar qualifications to those of a student nurse, but he starts on £7,752 a year, while a student nurse starts on £4,325 a year. Assuming that a policeman is not promoted, after 16 years in the profession he is paid £12,936, an increase of more than £5,000. When a...
