Mr Harry Greenway: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that it is totally in the interests of society, and children in particular, that they should be taught the difference between right and wrong from an early age, and that therefore Christian or moral education in schools is absolutely crucial, although it is seriously neglected by Labour-controlled authorities right across the land?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Inward Investment (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Harry Greenway: Does my right hon. Friend agree that those are brilliant figures, which are attributable to the success of this Government's policies, in huge contrast to the policies of the predecessor Labour Administration, although that was a long time ago?

Points of Order (13 Mar 1997)

Mr Harry Greenway: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. Bearing in mind the serious discourtesy to the House displayed by a Member of Parliament in leaking the report of the Select Committee on Education and Employment about nursery education—even before it was completed last evening, judging by the inaccurate representations that have appeared in the press—I ask you to protect the standards of the House by...

Business of the House (13 Mar 1997)

Mr Harry Greenway: May we have a statement next week on the possible contamination of water by Cryptosporidium, especially in the Three Valleys water company area, and the failure of that company to notify people in Northolt, Greenford and other parts of my constituency that they should be boiling water?

Meat Hygiene Service (Report) ( 6 Mar 1997)

Mr Harry Greenway: Have there been any prosecutions as a result of the report? I believe that there have. If so, is that not evidence of its great value in driving up standards as my right hon. and learned Friend said, and would not reports of such prosecutions have provided an opportunity for the Opposition and anyone else to pick up information about the report? Should not Professor Pennington have done that also?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Education Expenditure (27 Feb 1997)

Mr Harry Greenway: Does my right hon. Friend agree that those figures are a matter for congratulation? Does he further agree that the continuing excellence of education in Northern Ireland owes a great deal to the fact that schools there never gave up proper selection, as the Labour party has sought to do? Labour has constantly opposed selection and Labour Members cannot be trusted when they say that they are...

London Underground (25 Feb 1997)

Mr Harry Greenway: Does my right hon. Friend recall that the GLC not only cut London Underground's services savagely in the early 1980s, but doubled the fares in a single year? We do not need any lessons on underground service provision and fares from the Labour party. Its only proposal for London Underground is to do nothing. We must have some action. My constituents must have a better service: they need an...
