Points of Order (20 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: Further to that point of order, Madam Speaker. May I point out that I have subsequently written to Sir Gordon Downey, and my understanding is that the investigation into the Leader of the Opposition's office over the £2 million of blind funds is still under way, still an open issue and can be raised during the election campaign as a very valid question about the Leader of the Opposition?

Mr David Shaw: Why cannot my right hon. Friend find time tomorrow for a debate on the £2 million of blind funds that are financing the Leader of the Opposition and Labour Front Benchers?

Points of Order (19 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: My point of order, Madam Speaker, relates to the Standards and Privileges Committee and to its work on this report. The real issue is that that report is holding up other reports on at least three Labour Members. There are allegations that filibustering has been going on during preparation of the report in question, so that the reports on the three Labour Members cannot be considered. As I...

Mr David Shaw: To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the benefits to the United Kingdom of (a) inward and (b) overseas investment. [19447]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Investment (19 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that this is an extraordinary account of the success of the Conservative Government? There is no question that our inward investment has created an enormous number of jobs, and our outward investment has helped not only with jobs in this country, but resulted in one of the greatest dividend flows into this country since the second world war. We are enormously...

Bill Presented: Pensions (13 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: My right hon. Friend has referred to the report of the Select Committee on Social Security on unfunded pension liabilities.

Clause 25: Certain Fees to Be Treated as Premiums Under Higher Rate Contracts (11 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: It is possible that one of the interests placed against my name in the Register of Members' Interests is involved here. I do not believe that it is, but I thought that I should mention it. I raise the issue because I have been asked to take an interest in the subject by the travel industry and also by Saga Holidays—a company which, although not based in my constituency, employs a number of...

Schedule 11: Leasing Arrangements: Finance Leases and Loans (11 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: In view of the late hour, I shall not detain the House for long. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] That may be the most support that I get on the issue. Lease finance is a complex area. My research has revealed the interesting fact that one of the people who has funded the Labour Front Bench research trust was involved in lease finance some years back. Apparently, that donator to Labour's secret...

Schedule 11: Leasing Arrangements: Finance Leases and Loans (11 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: I can certainly confirm what my right hon. Friend said about our not entering the social chapter being one of the main reasons why inward investors come to this country and why my constituency is doing well in creating jobs in small businesses. We do not have the social chapter and in consequence unemployment in Dover is less than half that in Calais. I tried to read all my right hon....

Points of Order (11 Mar 1997)

Mr David Shaw: My concern is that the hon. Member for Cunninghame, North (Mr. Wilson), who rose to the Dispatch Box just now, did not declare £100,000-worth of grants to his company from the Highlands and Islands development board. My hon. Friend the Member for North Tayside (Mr. Walker) made that point yesterday. The hon. Member for Cunninghame, North was in full knowledge of that point, and could have...
