Ford (Halewood) (5 Feb 1997)

Mr John Evans: My hon. Friend touches on the important issue of the wider spread of jobs in Merseyside. Is he aware that much of the glass installed in Escorts is produced at the Triplex factory in St. Helens, which has also struggled over the past few years? The potential loss of that valuable order could have a major impact on the employment prospects at Triplex in St, Helens.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nato (14 Jan 1997)

Mr John Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the future expansion of NATO. [8978]

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nato (14 Jan 1997)

Mr John Evans: Does the Secretary of State agree that if countries such as Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic are to be welcomed into NATO, it should, if possible, be with the agreement of Russia? Long-term peace and stability throughout Europe cannot be guaranteed without the long-term support of the Russians.

Local Government Finance (27 Nov 1996)

Mr John Evans: Will lie Secretary of State confirm that next year, as a result of the increase announced today, the tax demands of most council tax payers will increase by two or even three times the rate of inflation, and the rents of council house tenants will be substantially increased? Will he also confirm that, as a result of the reduction in support for housing associations, they will next year build...

Trade Unions (19 Nov 1996)

Mr John Evans: Is it not ironic that the party that will not allow its members to elect either its chairman or its national executive committee is trying to introduce the most draconian conditions imposed on any trade union movement in Europe? Will the Secretary of State confirm that, if immunities are lifted from trade unions in the circumstances that he has outlined, it will take the trade union movement...

BSE (Health) (25 Mar 1996)

Mr John Evans: Are the scientists who have advised the Secretary of State that there is no risk to children the same scientists who have been advising him and his predecessors for the past 15 years that there is no risk whatever from eating British beef? In view of his statement about the advice given a week ago, will he give a categorical assurance to the House and the public that there is no health risk...

Mr John Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when he next expects to meet the Disablement Income Group to discuss the problem of poverty among disabled persons. [3579]

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Disabled People (Poverty) (12 Dec 1995)

Mr John Evans: When the Minister next meets the Disablement Income Group, will he seek to explain why poverty among disabled people will increase savagely when the new incapacity allowance comes into operation in April while, at the same time, income tax has been reduced for the better-off?

Standards and Privileges (6 Nov 1995)

Mr John Evans: I proudly declare that I am a skilled member of the Amalgamated Engineering Union, and have been since I was 16. That organisation pays the sum of £600 to my constituency Labour party as well as an agreed amount of my election expenses. Those are duly recorded in the candidates' return, and always have been. I pay tribute to the Leader of the House and to my hon. Friend the Member for...

Standards and Privileges (6 Nov 1995)

Mr John Evans: I wrote to the hon. Gentleman. I cannot give way because I have only 10 minutes. I will talk to the hon. Gentleman outside the Chamber.

Standards and Privileges (6 Nov 1995)

Mr John Evans: The hon. Gentleman has put his finger on the kernel of the argument. If he is not in breach of any rules then, by God, the rules of the House need changing. Of course, such conduct will be dealt with in future by the new parliamentary Committee and the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. The need for such an expensive post—and it is expensive, at £78,000 for a four-day week—has...

Standards in Public Life (19 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: rose—

Standards in Public Life (19 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: I hope that my 10 minutes will start from when I begin my speech, Madam Deputy Speaker. I take it that my 10 minutes will start now. At the outset—

Standards in Public Life (19 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: At the outset, I proudly declare my sponsorship by the Amalgamated Engineering Union. It is the only interest that I have in the Register of Members' Interests and it has been declared ever since the register was established. I have no other interests to declare to the House. I pay tribute to the Select Committee's Chairman who, in a quite splendid style, sought to obtain unanimity...

Standards in Public Life (19 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: I have only 10 minutes. Those three members of the committee, as well as its other distinguished members, know their way about politics and about Parliament. In case anyone has missed it, it should also be noted that Sir Clifford Boulton, a former Clerk of the House, was a member of the committee. If anyone knows his way around the Standing Orders and procedures of the House, it is Sir...

Standards in Public Life (19 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: As my hon. Friend says, nothing has changed in the interim. The Nolan committee recommended a new Select Committee on Standards and Privileges. The Leader of the House knows my views and I make the plea that such a Committee should be established soon, start work and take over the functions of the present Select Committee. The present Select Committee, which has done an excellent job, has a...

Standards in Public Life (19 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: Will the Leader of the House make it clear that, in our recommendations on the formation of the new Select Committee, we stated that we believed that it should be substantially smaller than the present Privileges Committee?

Mr John Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he next expects to meet the European Commissioner for Transport to discuss European subsidies to British Rail. [30126]

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: British Rail (3 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: Will the Minister confirm that the Government have been forced to repay the millions of pounds that they received from the European Union to implement major improvements in the British Rail network? Does he feel that obtaining money by that method is almost obtaining money by false pretences? Is that not another nail in the coffin of the privatisation of British Rail?

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Citizens Charters (3 Jul 1995)

Mr John Evans: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what plans he has to introduce further citizens charters during 1995; and if he will make a statement. [30154]
