Oral Answers to Questions — Opposition Day: Rural Communities in Wales (4 Jun 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: I shall be very brief, because this seems to me to be a most curious debate. A deep concern for the countryside has not been evident in Labour party pronouncements in the past. Farming is still a major producer of wealth in rural Wales. Even though only 4 per cent. of the Clwyd labour force is directly employed in it, the prosperity and jobs that it generates go much wider. What is Labour...

Oral Answers to Questions — Opposition Day: Rural Communities in Wales (4 Jun 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: I have outlined in great detail the areas in which the Government's record is extremely favourable. I have some doubts about the way in which regional support was changed, and I have expressed those doubts in the Welsh Grand Committee. Nevertheless, the overall position has been one of considerable success in regenerating the rural communities of Wales. I urge the Secretary of State to look...

Oral Answers to Questions — Opposition Day: Rural Communities in Wales (4 Jun 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: I am glad to have that reassurance. I was a little surprised to see that this document had been published by the research department, and I am glad to have it on record that it reflects in no way the sentiments of the Labour party. This children's book on trade unionism tells the story of farm animals going on strike to protest at dangerous, rusty machinery that they work with and the rotten...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Courtaulds (Plant Closure) (20 May 1985)

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Job Creation (22 Apr 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: I entirely reject the Opposition's approach of throwing money at jobs, but is my right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education Expenditure (25 Mar 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: Does my hon. Friend agree that those remarkable figures show that the only cuts in education expenditure during the past decade have taken place under a Labour Government? Does he further agree that the industrial dispute involving the teachers is causing damage to education in Wales?

Estimates Day: Falkland Islands (Foreign Affairs Committee Report) (14 Mar 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: There is much in the Government's response to the Select Committee's report on the Falklands that is sound common sense. The White Paper makes the point that, following the return of British administration in June 1982, the Government faced a completely new situation — a war had been fought and negotiations could not revert directly to where they left off before the war. That point has been...

Oral Answers to Questions: Coal Industry Dispute (10 Dec 1984)

Mr Robert Harvey: Does my right hon. Friend accept that this represents a shameful and tragic waste of human resources in Wales? Will he urge Welsh miners to follow the excellent example set by Bersham colliery workers in going back to work?

Autumn Statement (6 Dec 1984)

Mr Robert Harvey: The debate has reflected the fact that one of the main concerns of Conservative Members is not so much the general economic strategy enshrined in the autumn statement as the reluctance of the Government to accept and to give priority to what must be the most pressing issue in this Parliament. The continued rise of unemployment after more than two years of recovery is alarming and it is no...

Autumn Statement (6 Dec 1984)

Mr Robert Harvey: I would prefer not to give way because I have limited time. I am sorry. In one industry after another throughout Britain, employers are working with more computers and fewer people. A local electricity board that serves my constituency employs 3,000 fewer people. The country is looking to us to get to grips with the problem, but not by imitating an American example that cannot be repeated...

Dairy Produce Quotas (18 Jul 1984)

Mr Robert Harvey: I think that hon. Members on both sides of the House understand the need for a substantial reduction in the dairy surplus. At a time when the Community was expected to overproduce by an estimated 70 million tonnes this year, producing 105 million tonnes, and consumption stood at only 88 million tonnes, of course cuts had to be made. It would have been unreasonable of dairy producers to have...
