Orders of the Day — Housing and Local Government (17 May 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: I wish to put to the Secretary of State a point regarding the Community Land Act. It was an open secret, and I should like the right hon. Gentleman to tell us of the Tory authorities which implemented that Act. In fact, the Tory authorities did not implement the Act in their local areas, so they themselves are to blame for any shortcomings under it.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Local Government (17 May 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. In fact, in Doncaster and Mexborough—

Orders of the Day — The Economy, Pay and Prices (22 May 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: I am pleased to take part in this debate so early after being elected by the people of Don Valley. My predecessor was Richard Kelley. He was a great guy, loved and held in high esteem by all in the constituency. I was thrilled when I came to the House of Commons. Every member of staff, the police and all Members of Parliament had nothing but praise for the work done by Richard Kelley. It was...

Orders of the Day — The Economy, Pay and Prices (22 May 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: But it is said in the very nicest way, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and I hope that note will be taken of it. As for providing financial aid for postal ballots, I can only say that if the Government of the day are not careful, the lads in the unions will take them to the cleaners. I can well imagine an executive meeting saying "Go for £20" and the secretary coming back and saying "They won't give us...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Increase of Value Added Tax (3 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: Today he would charge him 15 per cent.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Increase of Value Added Tax (3 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: I speak in support of amendment No. 4. I wish to ask the Minister to exempt charities from the VAT increase. I do not know whether the Chancellor of the Exchequer is aware how charities will suffer as a result of his proposals. A 1 per cent. reduction in direct taxation loses £1 million for charities in this country. I received that information from the Charities Trust Aid Foundation in a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Increase of Value Added Tax (4 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: I support amendment No. 20. I am concerned about modernisation of houses Over the years grants towards modernisation or revitalisation have been of assistance in increasing our stock of housing. Over the past four years the Doncaster metropolitan council has made grants of £1 million a year. The youngsters living in those old houses have been grateful for that money and have brought their...

North Sea Oil (6 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: First, I congratulate the maiden speakers—the hon. Members for Brigg and Scunthorpe (Mr. Brown) and Morecambe and Lonsdale (Mr. Lennox-Boyd), and my hon. Friend the Member for Derbyshire, North-East (Mr. Ellis). I made my maiden speech only a fortnight after entering the House with this intake, which shows that speeches which are made later are better both in quality and quantity. It has...

North Sea Oil (6 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: My hon. Friend is right. I am proud to be one of the mining fraternity. I know that investment in coal is needed. It is the only energy source that we shall have after the end of the century. When I was at Oxford in 1957, I heard Schumacher lecture. As things have turned out, he forecast our energy needs and our present fix practically perfectly. Sadly, that great economist and Rhodes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Combined Heat and Power (Marshall Report) (9 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: asked the Secretary of State for Energy when he expects to publish Dr. Walter Marshall's report on combined heat and electrical power generation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Combined Heat and Power (Marshall Report) (9 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: Is the Minister aware that power stations waste a great deal of energy? Is he aware that over 60 per cent. of it goes up into the atmosphere? Does he realise that this does not happen in most European countries where waste heat is harnessed and used in combined heat and power schemes? Will he make a statement on the Government's attitude to combined heat and power schemes in this country?...

Mr Michael Welsh: asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is his estimate of the number of new entrants into the mining industry over the next 10 years which will be needed under the requirements of EEC Document 7855/9.

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Mining Industry (New Entrants) (26 Nov 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: May I thank the Minister for that reply? May I ask him for another answer, as we discussed the documents at some length but no miners' Member of Parliament was called? Therefore, as I think that it is the duty of the Minister to reply, will he answer this question? Is the Minister aware—as I respectfully suggest—that Britain is the most efficient coal-producing country in the EEC if not...

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill (17 Dec 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: I know that we are limited to 10 minutes, but before I speak totally against the Bill I must congratulate the hon. Members for Chorley (Mr. Dover) and for Ilford, South (Mr. Thorne) on their maiden speeches. As a Member who arrived here on 3 May, it gives me pleasure to hear maiden speeches, and though I am limited to 10 minutes I am prepared to give some of that time to congratulating those...

Nuclear Power (18 Dec 1979)

Mr Michael Welsh: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are millions outside this ivory tower who, like my good self, do not support any extension of nuclear power stations in Great Britain? Will he give me an assurance that no such plants, even after long inquiries, will be built in the constituency of Don Valley? The Government have a majority vote in the House. If they are successful in implementing...

Mr Michael Welsh: asked the Lord Privy Seal what proposals he has with regard to aid directed towards children in developing countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Children (16 Jan 1980)

Mr Michael Welsh: I thank the Minister for his reply. Is he aware of the great disappointment both inside and outside the House about the way in which the Government's expenditure cuts affect aid to underdeveloped countries? Will he assure us that any further cuts will not interfere with the programmes for children in the Third world?
