Information Technology (Government Strategy) (3 Mar 1997)

Mr Michael Marshall: Does my right hon. Friend accept that his willingness to have an open session with the Parliamentary Information Technology Committee, involving people from industry as well as Members of both Houses, was much appreciated? One of the issues raised was crime. As many of the challenges posed by crime in the 21st century will be information technology-related, does he accept that, as well as...

Police Bill [Lords] (12 Feb 1997)

Mr Michael Marshall: I am grateful for this opportunity to speak briefly. I understand that a number of my hon. Friends wish to speak. My frustration is twofold. Many of the things that I would have wished to say in a considered way will inevitably be squeezed because of time constraints. My frustration is also due to the fact that there has been a total lack of comment about part IV of the Bill. As the...

British Prisoners of War (15 Jan 1997)

Mr Michael Marshall: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise this important subject and I appreciate the support of many hon. Members who have been active in the matter. My concern about deductions from British prisoners of war in Germany and Italy between 1939 and 1945 arises from the evidence that I have received over many years from my constituent, a former Royal Air Force officer, Group Captain Alec...

Former Prisoners of War (Compensation) (4 Dec 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: We are all, of course, totally in support of what is being said. My hon. Friend will be aware that the MOD is currently undertaking a fundamental review of former British prisoners of the Germans and the Italians. Can he confirm that the Foreign Office will do all that it can to ensure that, as far as possible, all prisoners of war are treated on all fours?

Clause 1: Extension S.5 of the Firearms Act 1968 to Prohibit Certain Small Firearms (18 Nov 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: I understand the hon. Gentleman's argument, but he is realistic and must surely accept that there is no way in which we can close all loopholes. We would have to ban all guns. The sawn-off shotgun has been seen over the years as the criminal's friend. Surely the hon. Gentleman should give up the idea that we can close all loopholes against lunacy.

Orders of the Day — The Economy (30 Oct 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: Twenty-two years ago today I had the opportunity of taking part in the debate on the Loyal Address in the year in which I was elected. As was customary at that time, I spoke about my constituency. In what must now be my last speech on the Loyal Address, I want to return to that theme. I am glad to see my right hon. Friend the Member for Worthing (Sir T. Higgins) in the Chamber because we have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: Can my right hon. Friend tell us what information Her Majesty's Government have received about the crash of the Trans World Airlines airliner last night? Will he take the opportunity to express the sympathy of the House to all involved, and to reaffirm that, if terrorism is involved, international co-operation must be accelerated and that this country will play a full part in that process?

New clause 19: Restriction on Re-Broadcasting of Programmes Forming Subject of Fairness Complaint (2 Jul 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: I believe that it would be more convenient to discuss amendment No. 137 first. It is related to clause 101 and covers complaints by aggrieved parties of unjust or unfair treatment or unwarranted infringement of privacy. It is concerned with the role of the broadcasting or regulatory authorities and their relationship with the new Broadcasting Standards Commission, which I shall refer to as...

New clause 19: Restriction on Re-Broadcasting of Programmes Forming Subject of Fairness Complaint (2 Jul 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister of State for outlining the present position, and particularly for updating us on the BBC's consideration of those matters. I am sorry that he did not feel able to address the thrust of the arguments that we put forward. If an aggrieved person can raise any such matter with the BBC or the ITC—and they have assured us that they will take such concerns into...

Mr Michael Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will list the 10 worst-performing local education authorities on the basis of national examination results. [33209]

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: Local Education Authorities (26 Jun 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: In that sad picture—sad for the parents and sad for the children involved—what common feature does my hon. Friend detect? Would I be right to assume that none of those authorities is Conservative controlled?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Union (12 Jun 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that one of the benefits of the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union is the opportunity that it provides for us to bring into a wider European Union some of the countries for whom we have long held a moral responsibility, such as Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary?

Scott Report (26 Feb 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: I am grateful for the opportunity to take part in the debate, even at this late stage. I begin by declaring my interest as a lifelong exporter of English goods and services. In view of the issues that have been mentioned, I should explain that I was adviser to British Aerospace and, as a former Minister, had an opportunity for two and a half years to play my small part, in the dim and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Feb 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: Does my right hon. Friend agree that in an increasingly competitive and turbulent world, this or indeed any Government must take great care in the way in which they balance national interest and the promotion of British exports? Is it not clear that my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary and my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General are honourable Members and that they should be...

Wild Mammals (Protection) Bill (26 Jan 1996)

Mr Michael Marshall: Many hon. Members in all parts of the House wished to be present for this debate. Some of us may not be able to participate in any vote if these proceedings run the full length of the day, but the hon. Gentleman has much support and good will in principle. We understand his remarks about reaching a compromise. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman can give me two assurances, in case there is not another...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Oct 1995)

Mr Michael Marshall: On United Nations day, will my right hon. Friend reflect that the Inter-Parliamentary Union conference at the General Assembly in New York a month ago agreed unanimously that the problems of the UN are our problems and that, if we did not have the organisation, we would have to invent it?

Privacy and Media Intrusion (17 Jul 1995)

Mr Michael Marshall: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. In 21 years, I have never sought to challenge the Chair, but I seek your guidance. Those of us who wanted to raise on behalf of our constituents—the little people against the big battalions—the invasion of privacy in recent months are naturally frustrated that we have not caught your eye, Madam Speaker. Can you give some assurance that you will seek to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: United Nations Anniversary (7 Jun 1995)

Mr Michael Marshall: Will my right hon. and learned Friend accept the appreciation of the Inter-Parliamentary Union for the considerable assistance rendered by our ambassador and mission in New York for the IPU conference in August and September on the occasion of its 50th anniversary? Following what he has just said, will he use his good offices to persuade the US Congress to support that opportunity to assess...

Privileges (20 Apr 1995)

Mr Michael Marshall: I have considerable sympathy with my hon. Friend's views. He will be aware of my concern, as I feel some responsibility for referring journalists to my hon. Friend the Member for Bosworth (Mr. Tredinnick). Will he take into account two considerations? The first is the repeated use of the suggestion that a constituent had put the journalist in touch with the Members of Parliament concerned,...
