Engineering (29 Jan 1997)

Michael Fabricant: ...by a group of committees and will centre on the many key areas of engineering applications, including energy, construction, transport, agriculture, the environment and communications. In fact, I understand from the Institution of Electrical Engineers that, today, it and GEC Marconi will be announcing jointly a new initiative to assist in-service training of teachers in electronics, which...

Privatisation (11 May 1992)

Bill Etherington: ...on your new post. I wish you every success and fulfilment in it. I have been waiting since 14 December to make this speech and it could not have come at a more appropriate time than in a debate on nationalization—on the end of a nationalised coal industry and rail industry. I am proud to represent the constituency of Sunderland, North, which has a wonderful record of parliamentary...

Opposition Day: Recession and Unemployment (19 Feb 1992)

Mr Roy Hughes: ...over such a long period suggests inertia on the part of the Government. Today, any Government has immeasurable control over the economic levers of power. However, the Government have chosen not to act and appear to be holding up their hands and saying that that is not their responsibility. On Monday, in a statement, the highly respected chairman of the Rover motor company, Mr. George...

Autumn Statement (14 Jan 1988)

Dr Charles Goodson-Wickes: ...so in the debate on the Autumn Statement, which has been delayed nearly as long as this speech. Sitting under the Strangers Gallery tonight is the Conservative Member for Blaydon between the years 1931 and 1935—not, I hope, the last Tory representative for that area. He has been my friend and political mentor for many years. He tells me that in his day one informed the Whips when it was...

Young People (Employment Opportunities): Opposition Day (10 Nov 1983)

Mr Dave Nellist: ...providing the kind of hope which was fast running out for successive years of school leavers. Earlier in the debate the Minister was asked what percentage of young people leaving training schemes actually found employment. I received a written reply today from the Department of Employment showing that 38 per cent. of young people leaving training schemes this year found employment. Last...

Public Expenditure (9 Mar 1983)

Mr Robert Sheldon: ..., which again and again failed to concern itself with the matters for which it had some responsibility. It is only with the subject Committees of today that we come a little closer to detailed examination. Of course I pay tribute to the work of the Treasury and Civil Service Committee. Nowadays no debate on public expenditure is complete without it, and in some ways a debate cannot begin...

Orders of the Day — Public Accounts (1 May 1980)

Mr Michael English: ...Royton (Mr. Barnett) said, we cannot in this debate discuss 14 reports. We must be selective. Two to which I should like to refer briefly are the fourth report of 1979–80 on provision for Civil Service pay and the second report of the same Session on matters relating to Northern Ireland. That on Civil Service pay illustrates the much better relations that now prevail between the Public...

Orders of the Day — Housing (England and Wales) (20 Jun 1977)

Mr Ronald Atkins: The cost and the bulk of the problem should not be borne by the council tenant. It is a national problem that requires a national solution. That is one of the reasons for my hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham and Morden (Mr. Douglas-Mann) referring to the rapid increase of house prices since 1968. My hon. Friend compared mortgage charges with charges for items such as bricks and mortar, the...

Homeless Persons (19 Dec 1975)

Mr Ernest Armstrong: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Chelsea (Mr. Scott) for raising this serious human problem, and I pay tribute to his own involvement in the important voluntary activity to which he referred. As he said, it is fitting that we in the House of Commons, in this very last debate before the Christmas Recess, should be reminded of the acute problem of single people who are homeless. As my...

Debate on the Address (29 Oct 1974)

Mr Harold Wilson: ...unchallenged as Father of the House, my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Hackney, North and Stoke Newington is undoubtedly our father in years. All of us know he has spent a lifetime in the service of the people and in his professional capacity in fighting for the casualties of our industrial system, particularly in industrial injuries and compensation cases, even long before State...

Local Government (Rate Support Grant) (9 Dec 1968)

Mr Peter Walker: ...hon. Gentleman's speech today was absolutely in that tradition. He said, in effect, "We will take the measures necessary in the interests of the economy, but they will not harm anybody; all the services will continue to be improved and local authorities will not have to put up the rates." In other words, the right hon. Gentleman said that this was not a hard measure which was needed to...

Bill Presented: War Disability Pensioners (21 Dec 1966)

Sir Robert Cary: ...as I can, and I propose, therefore, not to elaborate certain matters which I have in mind. It is my duty, also, not to refer to legislation but to outline only in a factual sense the effect of Acts of Parliament upon war disability pensioners, and this I shall do. What are the main problems confronting war disability pensioners? First, there is the question of the value of pensions. The...

Orders of the Day — Medical Termination of Pregnancy Bill (22 Jul 1966)

Mr David Steel: ...of the Bill have been very extensive. Before I come to the terms of the Bill, I would point out that this has been a difficult choice for me. It remains my view that it is unfortunate that the practice in the House is for controversial social issues of this kind—issues such as the abolition of capital punishment—to be left entirely to private Members to bring forward. In my opinion,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 42. — (Selective Employment Tax.) (29 Jun 1966)

Mr Iain Macleod: ...Amendment No. 34, in page 48, line 27, at the end to insert: Provided always that the said amount shall be one penny in the case of those persons set out in Parts II and III of Schedule 10 to this Act. The Amendments have been signed on the Notice Paper by about 20 members of the Conservative Party, rather more than 30 members on the Government Benches and six Liberals. Those are the names...

Bill Presented: Youth Employment Service (5 Feb 1965)

Dr Wyndham Davies: ...trends in education and industry, and mindful of the need for helping young people to choose, obtain and settle down in employment and training suitable to their individual capacities and inclinations; recognising the unique contribution which the Youth Employment Service can make to this end in the interests of the young people concerned, their employers and the nation's economy, calls on...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (19 Dec 1963)

Mrs Judith Hart: ...probably imagine, I should like to take the time to follow her on what she said about social workers—because she knows that I share her interest in that question—and the possibility of salaried service for general practitioners. I believe that in the Health Service we are bound to move towards a salaried service. Many advantages will accrue from it. Much of what the hon. Lady said has...

School Building and Teacher Shortage (26 Mar 1963)

Sir Edward Boyle: ...line with the debate. I said in my first letter to Sir Thomas Creed that I thought that the total of the Burnham award was a generous one which I was not prepared to see increased. I believe that I acted properly in accordance with Section 89 of the 1944 Act. I acted in what I believe to be the best long-term interests of the profession. I believe that many people in all political parties...

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Historic Buildings) Bill (9 Feb 1962)

Mr Paul Channon: ...we shall have this morning will again focus a small amount of public attention on this important problem. If there are Philistine local authorities, perhaps some of them will be stimulated to action if the House gives a generous reception to this Measure, and I hope that hon. Members will not think this too naive or innocent a view. The purpose of the Bill is to enable certain local...

Orders of the Day — Public Accounts Committee (Reports) (30 Nov 1961)

Mr Harold Wilson: ...to the noble Lord that it is obviously difficult for me to produce evidence on this, or to produce identifiable blood which he could examine. But I think that the fact that the Committee is there, acting in this in terrorem capacity, prevents a possible development in one Department after another which might lead to adverse criticism. This is neither something which we nor the Treasury can...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (19 Apr 1961)

Mr Douglas Jay: ...being paid £12,000 or £15,000 a year at all. They are receiving £2,500, £3,000 or perhaps £4,000, and they get an almost negligible proportion of the Chancellor's huge give-away. It is, in fact, the company chairman, the pluralist directors, the property dealers and the very wealthy who get the larger windfall from these proposals. Secondly, these concessions are not limited, as the...
