Clause 14: Imposing Conditions on Public Assemblies (30 Apr 1986)

David Clelland: The hon. and learned Gentleman ignores the fact that the police already have considerable powers to make way for people going to work, as was done during the miners' strike. This is an additional power which is designed to restrict not only that activity but some other peaceful activities, as I have described. I am sure that we shall see examples of that as time goes on. This further...

Oxford Street Bomb (24 Apr 1986)

David Clelland: Can the Minister help to clear up the matter of definition? While I accept what he has said about the possibility of the connection—or possibly there is no connection—between what happened today and what happened last week, we have had some arguments about definition on the Public Order Bill recently. Can he define a terrorist act? I agree that the precise placing of this device this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Neighbourhood Watch Schemes (24 Apr 1986)

David Clelland: Is the Minister aware of the excellent neighbourhood watch scheme set up in the Northumbria police force area, which, along with the metro transport system, the new metro shopping development and the setting up of regional drug squads, has placed considerable pressure on manning levels in that police force? When will the Home Secretary reply to the request from the Northumbria police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Rates (23 Apr 1986)

David Clelland: Notwithstanding what the Minister said about the Government's policy towards rate increases, does she accept that local authorities have been able to maintain their services over the years only by using creative accountancy methods? Those methods are now running out, as evidenced by the horrendous rate rises that have had to be imposed in Gateshead to maintain services at a high level. Does...

Law Centres (13 Mar 1986)

David Clelland: I rise to put the case for the continuation and extension of the funding of law centres in this country. I have vested reasons for doing so because in my constituency I have two such centres which are not only active but are providing an essential and proven service to the people of Gateshead and Newcastle. The Benwell law centre in Newcastle and the Gateshead law centre owe their existence...

Inner Cities ( 6 Feb 1986)

David Clelland: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman really believe that the initiative that he has announced today will be of any great benefit to the areas mentioned? Can he explain why the inner city areas of Newcastle and Gateshead are not on his list? Does it mean that we are in some way being penalised or neglected? Can the right hon. and learned Gentleman tell me how the latest Government...

Orders of the Day — Public Order Bill (13 Jan 1986)

David Clelland: I stand here today proud to represent the people of the Tyne Bridge constituency but conscious, as are we all, of the tragic events which brought about my presence in the House. My predecessor, Harry Cowans, was not only an excellent representative of the people and a first class Member of Parliament; he was a personal friend for many years. Harry and I met before we became members of the...
