British Nuclear Fuels (Warrington) (16 Mar 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: I listened carefully to what the hon. Member for Warrington, North (Mr. Hoyle) and the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Mr. Wareing) said about protecting jobs. I have been trying to protect jobs in my constituency in the coal industry, yet the hon. Gentleman's colleagues come into my constituency and say that they will phase out nuclear power and nuclear energy. That is a direct...

Pneumoconiosis etc. (Workers' Compensation) (25 Feb 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: I welcome my hon. Friend's guarantee to address immediately any recommendations that the report may make. There are just as many Conservative Members as Labour Members who are anxious that this matter should be addressed.

Rechar (17 Feb 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: Many congratulations are in order to my right hon. Friend for showing the European Commission the error of its ways in releasing our money for our hard-pressed coalfield areas. Commissioner Millan is as popular in Sherwood as the sheriff of Nottingham. He has denied my constituents the opportunities for new job creation and leisure facilities. Does my right hon. Friend agree that at no time...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: Only three?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: That is not true.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: The hon. Member is an honourable man. I have received a letter from Commissioner Milian in response to my invitation to come to London to meet the Conservative coal group to explain why he would not give us the money. He wrote back to say that it was not a problem of additionality, because that had been agreed. The problem was about how the money should be targeted. So the extra money for the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: That is not the argument.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: The hon. Gentleman talked earlier about that very point and I explained it to him. Let us get the record straight. The new contracts will be issued in April 1993 and the privatisation of the coal industry will not be until after that date.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: I do.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman may recall, although he was not here at the time, that until the Coal Industry Act 1987, the Union of Democratic Mineworkers was not allowed to sit on the board of trustees. At that time, his union blocked every sensible investment decision that the pension fund managers wanted to make. That is why there is an accumulating surplus of £1,500 million.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: The hon. Gentleman would not repeat that outside.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: I support and welcome the Third Reading of this important Bill. It guarantees the doubling of restructuring grants to British Coal from £1,500 million to £3,000 million in the period up to 1996. The effect will be to enable British Coal to continue the vital restructuring of the industry and allow, where necessary, generous redundancy terms. It shows a continuing commitment by the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: My hon. Friend is right. The miners in Nottinghamshire remember the scandal of the Labour party going home early, with the result that, at 8·10 pm, only 49 Labour Members voted against the Bill. Further, the Nottinghamshire miners noticed that it was a Labour-controlled Humberside county council which passed the planning consent for the new gas-fired stations in Humberside to replace the use...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: There is more. Mr. Deputy Speaker, would you not like to hear what I meant when I said that all parties had kicked the miners in the teeth?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: Mr. Deputy Speaker, you have been here a long time and you will know that a private Bill is not whipped business. The frustration of both management and men which I found during my visits to the Sherwood collieries was due to uncertainty about the British Coal market share after April 1993. The new contracts will be around 55 million tonnes and must be settled soon. Sherwood's miners will...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Andrew Stewart: That intervention surprises me. The hon. Gentleman knows that the UDM has its own financial advisers who are paid to give it such advice. I have merely said to the UDM miners that if they wish to have a stake in their industry, good luck to them. It is their future. The future of the coal industry is what it is all about. Clause 2 repeals the Coal Mines Regulation Act 1908. Its repeal will...

Housing Repossessions (19 Dec 1991)

Mr Andrew Stewart: I welcome my right hon. Friend's statement, but does he agree that one reason for the depressed state of the property market is the way in which we buy and sell properties in England and Wales? "Subject to contract" is meaningless. It allows gazumping and "gazundering". The system is discredited. Is not it time that we adopted the Scottish system of property transactions and allowed our...

Education (Schools) Bill (19 Nov 1991)

Mr Andrew Stewart: indicated assent

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (14 Nov 1991)

Mr Andrew Stewart: This Coal Industry Bill must be one of the shortest of its sort ever to come before Parliament. It is, however, consequential to the future of our coal industry. It implies a great degree of uncertainty, but equally it presents a challenge to the management of British Coal to fight for every ounce of viable business that it can obtain. That will mean continuing to reduce unit costs, while...
