Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Health Authorities (29 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the performance of the new health authorities in Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Health Authorities (29 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am sure that the Minister is in favour of setting up the trust fund scheme in the national health service. Is he in a position to say how many hospitals in Wales have been consulted and how many he believes will opt for the new scheme? If he is, can he give an assurance to all Welsh hospital employees and to the people of Wales that it will not result in redundancies at the same rate as was...

Local Government Review (Wales) (23 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am sure that the Secretary of State is aware that thousands of university students live in my constituency. Can he clarify the position of four students sharing the same rented house?

Agriculture (18 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: Over the years, I have had the opportunity of speaking in our agriculture debates and I know that many hon. Members of all parties were disappointed when the Minister lost his temper earlier and tried to discredit my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Montgomery (Mr. Carlile), who conducts his business in the House and in his constituency excellently. Now that the Minister has cooled down...

Agriculture (18 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I do not think so. The Minister of Agriculture is the Minister of Agriculture, and is fully responsible for looking after British farming. If he cannot do the job as well as the British farming industry wants him to, let us give the Liberal party the opportunity. Another farmer, who also chairs the NFU in Cardiganshire, made an interesting comparison between the earnings of different people...

Agriculture (18 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I believe that the hon. Member for Southend, East (Mr. Taylor) has full responsibility for agriculture in Southend.

Agriculture (18 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I remind the hon. Gentleman that the farming community is very much indebted to members of my party. If the hon. Member for Southend, East had had his way a few years ago, British farmland would today be rated. He introduced a 10-minute Bill, but even his colleagues voted with us, including the then Prime Minister. My advice to the hon. Gentleman is not to blame the Liberals, but to look...

Agriculture (18 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am delighted at the change of heart. The Government have listened to what we have been saying for some time. We all talk about MacSharry's plans and hon. Members of all parties condemned his present proposals during our previous debate. However, MacSharry's proposals are not dead. He will introduce new proposals in the summer and if we do not accept them there will be another set. My...

Agriculture (18 Apr 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I took part in the last agriculture debate about six weeks ago in which my hon. and learned Friend intervened. The Minister should check Hansard because he is misleading the House.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Countryside (Access) (21 Mar 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: Has the Minister any plans to introduce compulsory set-aside if the current scheme does not work out to his satisfaction?

Welsh Affairs (28 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, for calling me to say a few words at the end of the debate. I want to make a plea on behalf of my constituents who live in Fishguard and Goodwick in Pembrokeshire. No doubt the Secretary of State is aware of the importance of the port of Fishguard to the economy of west Wales. He will be aware, too, that the trunk road through Fishguard and Goodwick is one of the worst...

Welsh Affairs (28 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: My hon. Friend is making an interesting speech. I am sure that he, like many of the hill farmers of Wales, is aware that, although they will have an increase in HLCA this year, which is a great help, unfortunately, within 12 months, Welsh sheep producers will have lost half that money because the guaranteed price for wool will end in 1991. I am sure that my hon. Friend will urge the Secretary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (21 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I do not wish to make a political point——

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (21 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: In view of the crisis currently facing British agriculturists, what advice would the Minister give to young farmers who want to enter the industry today?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: A55 (18 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: The Minister will be aware that there are more than a quarter of a million of us living in mid-Wales. We have been very tolerant over the past 10 years. We have looked north and south and have watched the Welsh Office spending millions of pounds on the motorway in south Wales and the dual carriageway in north Wales. Will the Minister assure us that, after 1994, he will consider dualling the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rural Economy (18 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has for the improvement of the economy of rural Wales during 1991.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rural Economy (18 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am sure that the Minister will agree that agriculture plays a major role in the rural economy of Wales. Agriculture is in crisis. In order to restore confidence will the Secretary of State assure the House that he will go to Brussels to discuss Mr. MacSharry's latest proposals? Those proposals, whether phase 2 or phase 3, will have to be accepted. On behalf of both farmers' unions in Wales,...

Opposition Day: Agriculture (14 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: The right hon. Gentleman could not have been listening, because I said that I supported him for opposing the MacSharry proposals—but that whether it be in six months' or 12 months' time, Mr. MacSharry's proposals will have to be accepted by the British Government, even though I hope that they can be amended.

Opposition Day: Agriculture (14 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: The hon. Lady can shout as much as she likes, but if the Minister is not in favour of the MacSharry principle, or of the amended version within the next two years, I am certain that he will not have an alternative policy. Perhaps the Minister will say what are his alternative policies.

Opposition Day: Agriculture (14 Feb 1991)

Mr Geraint Howells: There is only one way to find out who is right and who is wrong. Will the Minister give the country's dairy producers an assurance that he will hold a referendum to establish what percentage of those dairy farmers are in favour of retaining the Milk Marketing Board with its present statutory powers?
