Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: West Yorkshire (26 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: Is the Minister aware that the Government's policy of over-valued sterling, high interest rates and industrial non-intervention has caused a shattering acceleration in the decline of the textile, clothing and carpet industries? Is he further aware that in sectors of those industries there is now a gallop towards extinction? In those circumstances, will he change his policies and reverse those...

Transport Bill: Pedestrian Crossings (Bradford) (25 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: People living in the Manchester Road area of Bradford are bitterly frustrated by the seemingly endless inertia and paralysis of the West Yorkshire county council in the face of prolonged and numerous complaints about difficulties for pedestrians in relation to that road.

Orders of the Day — Films Bill: Extension of Period of Quota ( 6 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: The United Kingdom has a population of about 55 million. It does not seem unreasonable that a population of that size should have a film industry of considerable scale and an interest in seeing that life and culture, including multi-racial culture, in Britain are portrayed on the screen. The quota does not seem to cost the Government anything. It enables 30 per cent. of first-feature films...

Orders of the Day — Loitering with Intent ( 5 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: The trouble with " sus " is that people are not convicted for what they have done, or for what they have attempted to do, but for what the court finds they had intended to do. A man of unblemished characted can be sent to prison for three months, without the right of trial by jury, despite the fact that he has not committed or attempted to commit any criminal offence. He is sent to prison...

Orders of the Day — Loitering with Intent ( 5 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: When a thief tries a car door, there is nearly always something inside the car, and if he tries to steal something from a handbag, there is usually something in the handbag. In those circumstances, he can be charged with attempted theft. If he has an implement in his pocket he can be charged with carrying housebreaking implements or carrying an offensive weapon. A whole range of charges can...

Orders of the Day — Loitering with Intent ( 5 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: I hear what my hon. Friend says, but I do not want to detain the House, because other hon. Members wish to speak. We all sympathise with the problems of the police and we all want to restrict crime to a minimum. The problem with " sus " is that large parts of the country manage to do without it. For example, there are courts in West Yorkshire that do not see a " sus " charge for a year on...

Orders of the Day — Loitering with Intent ( 5 Jun 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: In view of the last intervention, will my right hon. Friend make it plain that "sus " is not used in relation to violence? Will he make it clear that it is used in relation to alleged street offences involving property and that it has nothing to do with the examples given by the hon. Member for Bury St. Edmunds (Mr. Griffiths)?

Iranian Embassy, London ( 6 May 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: While I share in the general satisfaction, may I ask the Home Secretary about the surviving gunman? Bearing in mind that the alleged killings took place within the Iranian embassy, is this man to be repatriated to Iran or is he to be tried in the courts of this country?

Prisons (30 Apr 1980)

Mr Edward Lyons: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that most of our prisons are those that the Conservative Government nationalised in the 1870s? Does his statement not amount to a tacit acceptance of the position that in his decade, and probably the next as well, none of those prisons will be closed? Is it not true that we shall be left with the same antiquated prisons? Does that not mean that we need a far...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade Minister (Discussions) (31 Mar 1980)
