Sally-Anne Messenger (11 Feb 1997)

Mr Jerry Hayes: This is the sort of Adjournment debate that most hon. Members never like to introduce, simply because it involves deceit, lies, a cover-up and the unnecessary death of a young child. Sally-Anne Messenger, my constituent, was born on 17 October 1992 and she was diagnosed as having Sandhoff's disease. The lifespan of someone with Sandhoff's disease is short, and they are usually expected to...

Local Government Finance (3 Feb 1997)

Mr Jerry Hayes: In the light of what my right hon. Friend has just said, is he surprised that the Opposition Front Bench is holding up Harlow council as a model Labour authority? That council has the second highest council tax in the country. It spent £28,000 on flowers and a flower bed outside the town hall. It blew all its reserves shortly before the previous general election because it believed that a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jan 1997)

Mr Jerry Hayes: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the people of Gibraltar are fiercely proud of being British and do not want to be a province of Spain? Will my right hon. Friend continue vigorously to support the people of Gibraltar to ensure that they have the same freedom of movement and voting that is taken for granted in the rest of Europe?

Points of Order (27 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: On a point of order, Madam Speaker, of which I have given you—and, out of courtesy, the Leader of the Opposition—notice. It involves allegations that, in his response to the Budget yesterday, the Leader of the Opposition used documents that were stolen. [Interruption.] If Opposition Members could just keep calm; I know that it is difficult.

Points of Order (27 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: I am sure that you, Madam Speaker, are much better at keeping calm than I. I put my point to the right hon. Gentleman in column 175 of yesterday's Hansard. He made it quite clear that the matters to which he was referring had been published in press releases earlier. I checked with the Treasury today, and was told that there was no question that the information with which I was dealing and...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situations: Amendment of the Law (26 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: He has seen the press release.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: I apologise for not having been present for much of the debate, but I have been serving on a Standing Committee in which no pairing is allowed. Secondly, I declare an interest as an adviser to the Ivax Corporation and to the Western Provident Association, a non-profit-making body. A few weeks ago my mother was seriously ill. She was immediately taken to the Royal Aberdeen infirmary where she...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: It has been made clear what spending on the health service will be. My hon. Friend the Minister will go into great detail later.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: In line with inflation—3 per cent. growth per year, year on year. That is the Government's promise: in line with inflation. They will deliver more money than the health service has ever had before—£42.5 billion.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: I do not believe for one moment that any constituent is getting a worse service than before the reforms. I cannot give the exact figures to answer the hon. Gentleman's question because I am not an expert on Rotherham, but more cash has gone into his health authority and his national health service trust than ever before. It is up to the people who run those trusts to spend it in the right way.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: The hon. Gentleman knows the amount of money that is being poured into the health service. He cannot deny it. He is an honourable, reasonable man. He knows the reality. He is trying to score a few political points, for which I cannot blame him in the run-up to a general election. The hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury wrote an article in response to the terrible accusations...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: The hon. Gentleman says yes. He should go around some of the local authorities that are run by Labour. He should come to Harlow, where £1.8 million was lost out of a budget of £12 million and a load of people had to be sacked. That is the sort of management that there would be under Labour. Just look at local government. The Labour party's proposals are delightfully vague. They tell us...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: The hon. Member for Rotherham sagely shakes his head, because he knows that the moment any spending plan is brought before the electorate and the House my right hon. and hon. Friends on the Treasury Bench will explain to the people where it is to come from.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: Like so many other things, that does not work. The hon. Gentleman is talking about raiding pension funds, about raiding the consumer and about raising energy prices, which will affect the elderly, the frail and the vulnerable. That is what the hon. Gentleman wants to do, but it does not add up—like everything else that we have had from the embattled party on the Opposition Benches, which...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (20 Nov 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: On the subject of rhetoric, has the hon. Gentleman seen the splendid article in The Independent, entitled "Is the NHS safe under Dr. Blair's team?" Does the hon. Gentleman prefer the point that says: Labour's complacent attitude, which has focused on scoring points in opposition rather than constructing a viable alternative", or the point from the left-leaning Institute for Public Policy...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (23 Oct 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for giving way mid-soundbite. He was kind enough to visit my constituency by helicopter not long ago. Did he spend only 10 minutes there because the Labour party in Harlow, almost to a man, voted for clause IV and against new Labour, or was it because we have one of the highest spending, most incompetent Labour councils in the country? Will he come again?

Points of Order (15 Jul 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: Yes, Madam Speaker.

Orders of the Day — Fire Service (8 May 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Fire Service (8 May 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: I have had more farewells than Frank Sinatra. May I say that for a rare moment I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Billericay (Mrs. Gorman)? Over the past few days, representatives of the Fire Brigades Union have been telephoning me to complain about the Labour party. They have been complaining because—

Orders of the Day — Fire Service (8 May 1996)

Mr Jerry Hayes: The hon. Gentleman really ought to—
