Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Hospital Provision (19 Oct 1992)

David Hanson: When the Secretary of State visits Clwyd will he consider the fact that, on 9 April, four of the five Labour Members of Parliament elected in those constituencies proposed a programme opposing opt-out hospitals?

Opposition Day: Water Privatisation (16 Jun 1992)

David Hanson: I thank my hon. Friend for that observation. However, not everyone in Wales is fortunate enough to suffer disconnection. The chairman of Welsh Water, John Elfed Jones, has seen his salary increase to £143,000, and with shares and other perks worth £200,000 he has enjoyed a 211 per cent. rise in his salary since privatisation. This year, Welsh Water will make a pre-tax profit of £143...

Opposition Day: Water Privatisation (16 Jun 1992)

I...

Debate on the Address: First Day ( 6 May 1992)

David Hanson: Of course, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is a learner's mistake. I shall come back in due course and learn by experience. Conservative Members have the mandate to run the United Kingdom and put forward their policies in the United Kingdom, but I trust that they will listen closely to those of us who have won seats in Wales and represent the people of Wales. I hope that they will introduce...
