Opposition Day: Schools (20 Apr 1993)

Mr Jack Thompson: There is one further element to take into account.

Children leave the middle school at 13 and will have been in the high school less than one year when they are tested.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (29 Mar 1993)

Mr Jack Thompson: I speak with 39 years of experience in the industry before I became a Member of Parliament. I sometimes find it amusing when people ask me what I did when I worked. When I worked, I was a miner. If the ill-considered statement made by the Board of Trade in October announcing the list of 39 pits threatened with closure did anything at all to advance the interests of the nation as a whole and...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Charges) (15 Mar 1993)

Mr Jack Thompson: An increase is now being proposed in the number of items being taken off the list that a doctor can prescribe. Those receiving the benefit of not having to pay prescription charges are now having to pay normal chemist shop prices. They are being hit twice.

Business of the House (18 Feb 1993)

Mr Jack Thompson: May I press the Leader of the House again to reconsider the prospect of an early debate or a statement on the coal industry—for the sake of the future not only of the 30,000 miners involved, but of the mining manufacturing and engineering companies? In addition, we are also awaiting a statement on mineral planning guidance note No. 3, and on the assisted areas arrangements. Those are all...

Orders of the Day — Estimates Day: Coastal Zone Protection (10 Dec 1992)

Mr Jack Thompson: I add my congratulations to the hon. Member for Hertfordshire, West (Mr. Jones) on taking over the role of Chairman of the Select Committee on the Environment. My experience of that Committee is such that I have full confidence in its reports and especially in the one that it has just completed. I make no apology for examining the report and the Government's response to it in the context of...

Orders of the Day — Estimates Day: Coastal Zone Protection (10 Dec 1992)

Mr Jack Thompson: I hope that the hon. Gentleman and his Committee will continue to pursue that aspect of the problem. The basic theme of the Select Committee recommendations is the need for a co-ordinated response to the difficulties involved in coastal protection. The hon. Member for Blackpool, South (Mr. Hawkins) represents a seat in the north, while mine is in the north-east; unlike Blackpool, my...

Mr Jack Thompson: Is the Leader of the House aware that Labour Members from the north are disappointed that there will be no opportunity to discuss the economic future of the northern region next week? May we have a debate on the subject in the future, bearing in mind our problems such as long-term unemployment and deprivation, and the fact that, as recently as yesterday, the other place held a very good...

Business of the House ( 9 Jul 1992)

Mr Jack Thompson: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the deep concern that has been expressed by hon. Members in all parts of the House about the environmental problems that arise from opencast coal operations?

Orders of the Day — British Coal and British Rail (Transfer Proposals) Bill (18 May 1992)

Mr Jack Thompson: I have listened carefully to the hon. Gentleman's arguments. Does he not agree that his arguments are probably the best ones for keeping the coal industry in state hands?
