Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Patients (Waiting Lists) (27 Apr 1987)

Mr Robert Harvey: Does my hon. Friend agree that the 9 per cent. increase for nurses will do a great deal to improve morale in the Health Service?

Welsh Affairs (2 Mar 1987)

Mr Robert Harvey: In industrial Wales there can be few St. David's days with more to cheer about than this one. The Welsh CBI quarterly trends survey shows that 13 per cent. of businesses are more optimistic than before, 19 per cent. expect a growing volume of output, 36 per cent. expect an increase in total new orders and 16 per cent. expect a rise in employment.

Sizewell Nuclear Power Station (23 Feb 1987)

Mr Robert Harvey: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State on the characteristic respect and modesty that he has shown in consulting the House before making a decision on Sizewell B. There are so many Conservative Members who, like myself, so passionately reject the Labour party's unilateralist stance on nuclear weapons and so dislike the coalition of forces assembled behind the proposition...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Mental Illness (9 Feb 1987)

Mr Robert Harvey: While warmly welcoming the Government's strategy of getting the mentally ill back into the community, may I ask my hon. Friend to consider the devastating impact on the local community of the closure of North Wales hospital?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Agriculture (9 Feb 1987)

Mr Robert Harvey: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the deep concern felt on this side of the House at the crisis facing Welsh farming?

Mr Robert Harvey: asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has any plans to introduce quotas on sheep production in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Sheep (8 Dec 1986)

Mr Robert Harvey: I welcome those excellent figures, but does my right hon. Friend agree that farming faces one of its most uncertain prospects for years because of factors outside the Government's control?

Friend also assure us that there will be no...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Rural Areas (Policing) (20 Nov 1986)

Mr Robert Harvey: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that reply. In view of the enormous increase in spending on the police force under this Government, would he not consider it a serious error if 40 rural police stations in north Wales were to close?

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Industry and Employment (18 Nov 1986)

Mr Robert Harvey: Three and a half years ago, I was elected for Clwyd, South-West, a constituency where the unemployment rate stood at about 18 per cent.
