Orders of the Day — Youth and Community Bill (1 Feb 1974)

Mr John Sutcliffe: How right was my hon. Friend the Member for Middleton and Prestwich (Mr. Haselhurst) to introduce a Youth and Community Bill and how well he introduced it. He merited the fulsome praise which has been bestowed on him from both sides of the House. It was interesting to hear a somewhat different point of view from the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) in the face of such...

Orders of the Day — Youth and Community Bill (1 Feb 1974)

Mr John Sutcliffe: Having sat in the Chamber all day, I resent obstruction to prevent me from making what I hope will be some constructive suggestions on the Bill. We want to be sure that the policy is right and that we do not repeat mistakes from which we should have learned. If, as the hon. Member for Fife, West said, there is only a limited amount of money to spend, let us spend it to better purpose. Three...

Mines (Working Facilities and Support) (Amendment) Bill (1 Feb 1974)

Mr John Sutcliffe: Friday next.

Mines (Working Facilities and Support) (Amendment) Bill (1 Feb 1974)

Mr John Sutcliffe: I have, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Fuel Supplies (Prime Minister's Speech) (18 Dec 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: In view of the energy situation, is my right hon. Friend now working out a new deal for the miners once phase 3 has been accepted by them?

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (5 Dec 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: I consider it somewhat facile of my hon. Friend the Member for Maidstone (Mr. John Wells) to dismiss those who are genuinely worried about the project as "bogus opponents", as I think he did. I try to be constructive; nevertheless I find the Bill controversial and I therefore cannot agree as much as I would have liked with all that my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh, North (Mr. Alexander...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (5 Dec 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: I accept that correction. Unfortunately, the Labour Party was unable today to offer any alternative, which surprised me since it is opposing this project. However, my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury (Mr. Crouch) is undoubtedly worried, as are other Kent Members, about what is to happen. If my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Dover were to ask me rather than the Opposition about...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (5 Dec 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: Obviously, it must be accepted at some stage, and it must be accepted now, that there will be a tunnel barring some dramatic event. I am anxious to see that it is the right kind of tunnel and that it is funded in the right kind of way.

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel (Initial Finance) Bill: Initial Finance for the Channel Tunnel (12 Nov 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: In the context of my amendment No. 13 I have to refer to Chapter 4, paragraph 4.6 of the White Paper, which refers to the suggestion that sea ferries might compete for a time on the basis of charges reduced in real terms by 45 per cent. rather than the 30 per cent. assumed in the studies. It is important for us to recognise that the sea ferries confidently forecast that they will compete at a...

Channel Tunnel (Initial Finance) Bill (8 Nov 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: My hon. Friend has been talking about the extra traffic which will be attracted into Kent because of the tunnel. Would he agree that many juggernauts at present travelling to East Coast ports would be attracted by the existence of the tunnel on to the roads of Kent and through the tunnel?

Channel Tunnel (25 Oct 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: I shall speak against the tunnel, and I hope to keep my remarks short. It used to be argued that the tunnel was needed to meet the forecast doubling of cross-Channel car traffic by 1980. Now, no one disputes that air and ferry services can cope, and can cope beyond 1980. It is generally agreed that the tunnel will not generate any traffic as, for example, the Severn Tunnel has done. At...

Channel Tunnel (25 Oct 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: That is a difficulty which applies equally to the rail shuttle service. If there is a problem here, it is no worse a problem than exists with the Channel Tunnel project. There are reasons for doubting the profit forecasts, one basis of which is the forecast of future passenger traffic. This is essentially a passenger tunnel, and a tourist passenger tunnel at that. There is nothing wrong with...

Business of the House (18 Oct 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: In view of next Thursday's debate, may I ask whether my right hon. Friend realises that the Government have not yet given the House a full explanation as to how a through rail service to all parts of the country, transferring a significant proportion of freight from road to rail, is technically and economically possible? This is a crucial aspect of the Channel Tunnel project. Why have we...

Government Work (Dispersal) (16 Oct 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: When one has lived, talked over and worried about a problem for years there comes a time to make a serious effort to deal with it. My area has a problem of a section of the community with worse prospects of employment than the rest, or indeed than communities in most other areas. I refer to school leavers and married women in Teesside. This is the very section of the community to which the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Hospital Visiting Expenses (17 Jul 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the Supplementary Benefits Commission has agreed to his request to review its criteria for increasing benefit where a family's income is insufficient to cover the expenses of visiting a dependent child in hospital.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Hospital Visiting Expenses (17 Jul 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: In conjunction with my right hon. Friend's circular in May to encourage better hospital liaison with voluntary organisations, does not this go a long way to meet the representations made to my right hon. Friend by the National Association for the Welfare of Children in Hospital?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: A66 (Teesside Churches) (11 Jul 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in response to correspondence he has had with the Churches Main Committee and the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, West, he will end the hardship suffered by two Teesside churches blighted by the A66 road development and make possible their reinstatement without further delay.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: A66 (Teesside Churches) (11 Jul 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that helpful reply. Will he, without prejudice to compensation in two or three years' time when this route for the A66 is finally decided, now write to the churches giving them his express authority to start negotiations, so that time may be saved?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Northern Region (11 Jun 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: A great deal of what I had intended to say seems to be common ground on both sides. We seem to be engaged in a great deal of shadow boxing. One thing that has clearly emerged from the debate is that the motion does not mean what it appears to mean. It sets out to castigate the Government for their total lack of a positive regional policy. One would deduce that the motion was very critical of...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Northern Region (11 Jun 1973)

Mr John Sutcliffe: I take the point which the hon. Member for Cleveland is making. I fully endorse what he said and I shall come later to the point which he made. But let us keen the matter in perspective. We must not consider only the oil terminal and the steel complex. The local Press has reported that ICI has recently announced a multi-million pound investment project. Nor does such development relate only...
