Trunk Roads (Review) (30 Mar 1994)

Mr Tam Dalyell: With the local knowledge of a St. Andrews graduate, will the Secretary of State ask the Secretary of State for Scotland to think of dropping the ill-conceived idea for a second Forth road bridge, abolish tolls and make it possible for Edinburgh—

New clause 2: Initial Review of Local Government Areas (17 May 1994)

Mr Martin O'Neill: ...of State nods his head. I pointed out to the right hon. Gentleman that the two areas were not linked and that they were separated by the River Forth. He did not know at the time that Kincardine bridge, which is the nearest crossing of the Forth to the two areas, may be in Falkirk in the south, but it lands in Kincardine —hence the name, I suppose—in the north, in Fife. I can only...

Value Added Tax (Education) (19 May 1994)

Andrew Smith: ...not wide enough. I also welcome the fact that the Government now appear to accept our argument that the benefits in terms of education and personal development, for example, of evening classes as a bridge to further education and training opportunities, are such that VAT should not be imposed on those courses. As the Paymaster General said, the progress of the campaign—with many millions...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Rail Link Bill (16 Jan 1995)

Mr Andrew Rowe: ...sound barrier that had to be raised before the trains had even started to run because the line was designed originally for a lower speed. Many of my constituents are anxious about the Medway bridge. It is in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Medway (Dame P. Fenner), but it is of such importance to so many of my constituents that we should consider again whether there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: National Health Service Reorganisations (17 Jan 1995)

Andrew MacKinlay: Have not Tory Governments reorganised the management structure of the health service on at least nine occasions since 1979? Is not it like painting the Forth bridge, except that the painting of that is normally completed before it is started again'? Will the Secretary of State reflect on the enormous cost to the public purse of those bogus reorganisations, which have sapped morale, lost...

Trunk Roads (Airedale and Wharfedale) (19 Jan 1995)

Mr Gary Waller: ...key factor in this case, however, is that the advance engineering work, costing up to £;12 million, has already been completed. It involved the diversion of the Leeds and Liverpool canal, new bridges and engineering work on the adjoining railway line. In effect, we now have a linear building site through the town of Bingley, with no work taking place on it. I shall outline in detail the...

Orders of the Day — Security Service Bill (10 Jan 1996)

Andrew Robathan: I thank my hon. Friend. He was murdered on a bridge with the tip of an umbrella, which introduced cyanide or some other poison into his system. Such agents no longer exist. I fear that some opponents of the Bill have watched too many James Bond films and read too much Le Carre. They tend to see anybody in the security services as a cross between Walter Mitty and a character from the pages of...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (14 Mar 1996)

Andrew Robathan: .... There have been recent attacks against Israeli targets. There is a fatwa against Salman Rushdie. Organisations here have links with Hamas. Further back, Georgi Markhov was murdered on Hungerford bridge by the Bulgarian secret service. International terrorism poses real threats to life and limb in this country. We should have the means to defend ourselves and the necessary tools in the...

Orders of the Day — Dogs (Fouling of Land) Bill: Land to Which Act Applies (22 Mar 1996)

Mr Andrew Hunter: ...upon the definition of a road as in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. That Act states that a road means any length of highway or any other road to which the public has access, and includes bridges over which a road passes". 9.45 am The problem is that that definition extends to footpaths and footways, whether or not they are beside carriageways. Since driving is banned on those...

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill ( 2 Apr 1996)

Mr Andrew Bennett: ...use and the Home Secretary has talked of its limited use. Will my hon. Friend confirm that, under the Bill as it stands, it would be possible to stop and search everyone coming across Westminster bridge, for instance, if Westminster were a designated area?

Opposition Day: National Health Service (26 Jun 1996)

Andrew MacKinlay: The only point on which I take issue with my hon. Friend is the fact that he referred to only five years of Government-imposed reforms. Their reforms are like the painting of the Forth bridge—they start on one end and they never finish. They keep reforming their reforms. I remember that it was "Sir Sheath Durex"—[Laughter.]— or whatever his name was—Sir Keith Joseph—who reformed the...

Estimates, 1996–97: Gospel Oak-Barking Line (27 Jun 1996)

Margaret Hodge: ...Government. However, it is not only the stations and the rolling stock that are past their sell-by date and in need of urgent overhaul—rather like the Conservative Government, the tracks and the bridges are falling apart.

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Voluntary Sector (23 Jul 1996)

Mr Andrew Rowe: ...have done so by using young people. The local communities that have begun to make inroads into the drug culture have used young people as their ambassadors. Communities that have begun to build bridges between the older generation and other generations have given young people the responsibility of bringing older people back into the community. We underestimate the young people in this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: M66 (28 Oct 1996)

Mr Andrew Bennett: for the scheme's completion appears to have slipped from 1998 to possibly 1999. Unless the last contract can be let, much public money will be wasted because the first four contracts have put bridges and flyovers into place, but there is not yet a linking road between them. Surely the Minister will now guarantee that that linking road will be built quickly and that the motorway will...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (11 Nov 1996)

Mr Andrew Rowe: ...'s homes and backyards, estimating quantities of paint, for example, and then buying it not only motivates children—who suddenly see the point of all that boring mathematics or geometry—but bridges the gap between the generations in a community. It brings the community and the school together. Service learning, far from being a bolt-on extra, is fundamental to learning. I do not know...

Rail Privatisation (15 Nov 1996)

Jane Kennedy: ...this autumn there were four serious accidents in which three children were killed, the youngest being five years of age. Peter Mee, aged 16, and his 13-year-old friend climbed down from a railway bridge into coal trucks at Edge Hill in my constituency. Both boys were electrocuted by the overhead cables, and Peter was killed. His friend received 20 per cent. burns. Eight-year-old Anthony...

The Constitution (20 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Hargreaves: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the debate. I suggest that the hon. Member for Tyne Bridge (Mr. Clelland) looks up Viscount Goschen's noble antecedent, who was the First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Lord Chancellor. He had an interesting political career, sitting on the Liberal as well as the Tory Benches; he was quite a statesman in his day. In a...

Adjournment of the House (21 May 1997)

Andrew Stunell: ...for Greater Manchester. Paradoxically, although my constituency includes a number of small towns and is called Hazel Grove, it does not include half of Hazel Grove. It contains Marple, Marple Bridge, Romiley, Woodley, Bredbury and part of Offerton, but only a small part of Hazel Grove, including the railway station. I therefore have the problem that not only do people outside the...

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill ( 2 Jun 1997)

Theresa May: .... Those are advantages for business, although it must be said that they also create some problems for local people—night flights into Heathrow, noise from the A404(M), the need for another bridge across the River Thames, the threat of motorway service stations and the threat of development. I have been and will continue to be involved in all those issues, and I trust that they can be...
