Department of Transport (10 Jul 1989)

Peter Bottomley: I do not intend to give way to the hon. Gentleman on that point because I wish to answer some of the other points that have been made in the debate. As he said at the end of his speech, we can follow up some of these points in correspondence. I am sad that my hon. Friends the Members for Wyre (Mr. Mans) and for Ruislip-Northwood (Mr. Wilkinson) were unable to make a speech in the debate....

Opposition Day: Rating (21 Feb 1989)

David Blunkett: I feel a sense of nostalgia this evening, on the fifth occasion of rate orders being laid against authorities. If it were not so late, there would be a great deal that I could say, but I want to put on record that I do not think that this House should sit, except in very unique circumstances, after 10 pm, and, given that the weight of numbers overrides the weight of reason on these occasions,...

Prayers: Civil Aviation (22 Jun 1984)

Mr David Mitchell: ...Prescott) that it will fly this afternoon. The debate has confirmed four general matters. First, aviation arouses strong opinions, raises powerful constituency interests and demonstrates a wealth of knowledge among Back-Bench Members that commands respect and deserves to be listened to. Secondly, the problems and the opportunities of this rapidly expanding industry are immense and...

Orders of the Day — Social Security (Maternity Grant) (Amendment) Bill (23 Nov 1979)

Peter Bottomley: I agree with the hon. Member for Barking (Miss Richardson) that the Bill is a modest measure. Its most important feature is to get rid of the contributory qualification for the maternity grant. That feature is so insignificant in financial terms that I do not think that the Department has worked out the net cost. We are talking about 60,000 births—about 10 per cent. of the births in...

Select Committees (25 Jun 1979)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I think that that is a rather strange way of putting the argument, but I have said that I accept the principle of that Committee. It is obvious that, if one accepts the Committee in principle, it must be left to the Government to draft the actual amendment on a Committee of this importance, so I hope that the course I am advocating will be followed by the hon. Gentleman and others. It is up...

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (16 Nov 1978)

Mr Alexander Fletcher: It is obvious from the comments that have been made during the debate that although the Bill has been given a general welcome there are many matters which are exercising hon. Members on each side of the House. This suggests that the Committee stage will, to say the least, be extremely interesting. As it is a non-contentious measure, I am sure hon. Members will hope that the Government will...

Parliamentary Pensions Bill: Pensions of Members (27 Jun 1978)

Mr Michael McGuire: I take note of what the hon. and learned Gentleman said, but he must understand that I am simply trying to put the record straight. It is worth considering what the public think of Members of Parliament. When Members' salaries are increased substantially or modestly the issue is usually a nine days' wonder in the eyes of the public. The public already believes that we are being paid a lot...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (27 Apr 1978)

Mr Peter Rees: The hon. Member has pinpointed one of my many weaknesses which have been long observed by my own Whips and, no doubt, by the Patronage Secretary—that I enjoy the Standing Committee upstairs but on this occasion I assure the hon. Member that his right hon. and hon. Friends will ensure that something will come back over which we can fight down here to our mutual profit. I turn to capital...

Clause 52: General Provision Charging Benefits (17 May 1976)

Mr John Nott: I agree. If an airline pilot wishes to take advantage of the benefit which has traditionally been available to him in working for an airline, he will not know, unless he goes to an accountant or works it out himself, precisely what his tax commitment will be. In the airlines it is the practice to give this concession on a graduated basis whereby the employee who has been with the company for...

Schedule 4a: References to Secretary of State Regarding Union Membership Agreements (15 Oct 1975)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond), particularly when he is speaking, as he is here, in part as a representative of the Guardian Trust, a very enlightened body of proprietors. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Gateshead, West (Mr. Horam), I declare an interest in my membership of the NUJ. It is becoming something of an auction among my hon....
