Prayers: Middle East Security (19 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that the problem of Lebanon and Israel is a two-way problem? I remember standing on the border between Lebanon and Israel and hearing on the news 10 days later that where I had stood had been the subject of an attack from within Lebanon and that people had died. Some of my friends said that the people had got their timing wrong. Does he accept that, if the...

Clause 2: Child Poverty (18 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: I was interested in what my hon. Friend the Member for Romsey and Waterside (Mr. Colvin) had to say about apples. I must first declare an interest, in that my father-in-law was an apple grower, and some of my wife's family are still apple growers. My hon. Friend said that all apples served in British schools should be English apples. Although that is clearly preferable, is my hon. Friend...

Clause 2: Child Poverty (18 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: My hon. Friend said that there were one or two things that he did not know about Labour party policy. He should get a copy of tonight's Evening Standard, which says that there are 50 things we do not know about Labour party policy. To return to the issue of food and nutrition—

Clause 2: Child Poverty (18 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Mr. Deputy Speaker, I was about to deal with the subject of food, nutrition and young children. Does my hon. Friend agree that income is one of the factors determining the amount of nutrition that parents can afford to give their young children, and that that income is very much a function of whether they are in employment? Does he not therefore agree that there are very real risks to young...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Dental Charges (18 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Will my hon. Friend remind the House and the former guardian of the Greater London council silver who introduced dental charges, and how many general hospitals would have to be closed if dental charges were abolished?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Unemployment (17 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Will my right hon. Friend join me, as a regular visitor to Welsh questions, in welcoming the hon. Member for Stratford-on-Avon (Mr. Howarth) to his first Welsh Question Time? Does my right hon. Friend agree that the improvement in the Welsh economy is due to the fact that we have modern industrial relations and low corporate taxes and have not signed the social chapter? Does he also agree...

Mr John Marshall: To ask the Attorney-General if he will make a statement about the use of information technology in the Serious Fraud Office. [18856]

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Information Technology (Serious Fraud Office) (17 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: I welcome the publication today of figures recording the fourth annual reduction in crime—an historic first for this country—and congratulate Mrs. Wright on her appointment as head of the SFO. But will my hon. and learned Friend look at Mrs. Wright's comments on the sophistication of juries? Does he not believe that we should revisit the views of the Roskill report and decide that serious...

Business of the House (13 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Will my right hon. Friend arrange for a debate on crime and sentencing, during which I could welcome the fact that crime on the London Underground has decreased by 20 per cent. in the past year? If those trends are mirrored nationally, 1996 will see the fourth year of recorded reductions in crime in Britain—the first four-year reduction since records began. I would also condemn the weasel...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Privatisation Proceeds (13 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Will my right hon. Friend confirm to the House whether the figures include receipts from the proposed privatisation of London Underground? Will he confirm also that, unique among privatisations, the receipts from that privatisation will be used to increase investment in London Underground?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (12 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for welcoming the recent visit by the Israeli President, during which the President offered a reciprocal invitation to Her Majesty the Queen. Many hope that that invitation will be accepted in the near future.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Traffic Congestion, London (10 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Does my hon. Friend agree that the only answer to traffic congestion in London is an improved underground system? He and I have both successfully driven one of the new Northern line trains, but does he agree that the privatisation of London Underground is the only hope for increased investment and that it is absurd of the Labour party to oppose it for purely doctrinal reasons?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Staff (Overtime) (10 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: To ask the right hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed, representing the House of Commons Commission, what is the Commission's current estimate of the staff overtime bill for 1996–97. [17785]

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Staff (Overtime) (10 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that our staff who work this overtime serve the House with skill, courtesy and charm? Therefore, does he further agree that it is quite unnecessary for 70 members of our staff to go to a charm school during the general election campaign? Would not the money spent on that charm school be better spent on some hon. Members?

Business of the House (6 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: When will my right hon. Friend make time for the annual summer economic debate? Could summer come early this year, so that we may reiterate the statement of the noble Lord Barnett that the economy is doing well, and so that I, as the father of two teenagers, might welcome the fact that job opportunities for school leavers in this country are much better than those in Germany, France, Spain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Lockerbie (5 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Everyone agrees that the Lockerbie disaster was a great human tragedy. Is it not incumbent on hon. Members to congratulate the Scottish police on their investigation, to emphasise that Scottish justice would be even-handed between the alleged criminals and the forces of law, and to condemn those in the House who act as apologists for the evil terrorists of Libya?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Authority Services (4 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: Will my hon. Friend confirm that many local authorities are unable to carry out the tasks that they are meant to perform, such as collecting rents, renting out houses to new tenants and collecting council tax? Will he therefore be wary of giving additional burdens to councils that are so incompetent at carrying out their existing duties?

Petitions: Cyprus (3 Mar 1997)

Mr John Marshall: But more successful.
