Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Home Energy Efficiency Scheme (19 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: However welcome the home energy efficiency scheme is, does the Minister agree that, if the Government gave wall insulation grants as well, it would help the environment and help to fight fuel poverty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Parents (Travel Costs Allowance) (18 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans his Department has to review the travel cost allowance and facilities provided for overnight accommodation for low-income parents of children undergoing major surgery outside their locality. [33214]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Parents (Travel Costs Allowance) (18 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, but does he not think it unacceptable that parents whose children have to have major surgery in an area outside their own have to search for funding either from the social fund or from charities to enable all their costs to be met? A constituent of mine eventually managed to obtain funding from the social fund, but it did not meet all the costs....

Social Security (17 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: The announcement by the Secretary of State for Social Security last month that he was to backtrack on some of the proposals for income support mortgage interest payments and housing benefit was welcome, even though the concessions were only very small. He should not have thought about penalising carers, the sick, remand prisoners, people suffering from AIDS or deserted partners with children...

Child Support Bill: Applications for Departure Directions (17 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: I welcome the Minister to his new post, which I consider to be a poisoned chalice. I also welcome the amendments. I wish that the Government had seen fit to accept more amendments, especially those tabled in another place.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Child Support Agency (17 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: Is the Minister aware that my constituents and many others throughout the country still have horrendous problems with the Child Support Agency? It is not just a question of bad administration; the Child Support Act 1991 is flawed and should be scrapped. Does he agree that, had it not been for the shameful collusion of Labour Front-Bench Members, we might have had a fair and workable...

Estimates Day: Social Security (13 Jul 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: I want to praise the report by the Select Committee on Social Security. It is very constructive and it has a great deal of common sense in it, especially the call for more regular information on expenditure and growth and the recommendation for more research, which is needed for the wide range of benefits that we are discussing. The most radical idea in the report is that Government...

Clause 6: Attendance, Information and Evidence (26 Jun 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: It is frustrating to have to confine myself to one group of amendments, but I will do my best. The Bill is not very different from the one which left this House: even though people in the other place tried to change it, the results are minor and I do not believe that they are enough. The Bill should be scrapped, but we cannot debate that proposition now. The Bill attacks the unemployed and...

Business of the House (22 Jun 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: There are now a staggering 1 million primary schools in England with class sizes of more than 30. Will the Leader of the House make time for an urgent debate on primary school education and nursery provision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Mortgage Interest (19 Jun 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: Does the Secretary of State not understand that there is genuine concern that those who have been encouraged to buy their homes could, because of the cut in income support for mortgage benefit, face homelessness? Can the Secretary of State tell the House whether he has fully thought through all the implications of the policy? Whatever he says at the Dispatch Box, I do not think that he has.

Business of the House (15 Jun 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: Following the petition that I delivered to 10 Downing street about the crime rate in the north-west and the recent debate on drugs in the House, will the Leader of the House make time for debate next week on the causes of crime, particularly the link between drug abuse and crime?

Opposition Day: Housing Market (13 Jun 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: Can the Secretary of State tell the House whether the Skipton building society will give free cover to disabled people, to those with a long-term medical condition or to those who have consulted a doctor on a medical condition within the past three years?

Opposition Day: Housing Market (13 Jun 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, with the cut in income support for mortgage interest payment, many disabled people and people with long-term illnesses will suffer because many insurance companies will not cover them, and those that do will force them to pay increased premiums?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Special Needs (23 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: To ask the Secretary of State for Education what new plans she has to meet the special educational needs of children. [23822]

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Special Needs (23 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: Does the Minister accept that one of the advantages of nursery education is that a child's special educational needs can be diagnosed at an early stage? Does he agree that the proposed voucher scheme will mean that children from poorer families will be disadvantaged and their special educational needs will not be diagnosed at such an early stage?

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (22 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: This is the last opportunity for us to debate the Bill before it goes to another place and I want to make very clear my position on it and the Child Support Act 1991, which it is supposed to amend. The Bill does not address the real problems. Like other recent Government Bills, most notably the Disability Discrimination Bill, the Government have recognised that something needs to be done...

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (22 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: I cannot say that I am grateful for the Minister's intervention. He should have listened to what I have said in the past. We have talked of a unified family court system—that was even mentioned during the passage of the Children Act 1989—and of bringing family law under one court. Surely most people cannot object to that. [HON. MEMBERS: "Details."] Hon. Members may say give us the...

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (22 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: The official Opposition are propping up the Government with the Child Support Act and I will give way to the hon. Gentleman with pleasure.

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (22 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: I have every intention of voting against the Bill tonight to ensure that our opposition to the Child Support Act is recognised, and members of the hon. Gentleman's party will be joining me in the Lobby. Not all of the official Opposition agree with the Front-Bench line. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman should listen to some of his Back-Bench colleagues. None of us is opposed to the principle of...

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (22 May 1995)

Ms Liz Lynne: If the 1991 Act meant that absent fathers were paying for the first time, some people might view it differently. What it does is to make so-called absent parents who are paying, pay more. The Government are not chasing parents who have not paid.
