Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Cities (Education and Services) (1 Jul 1987)

Paul Flynn: I represent, with great pride, the constituency of Newport, West. Newport, West is a constituency that was formed in 1983 and its first Member was Mr. Mark Robinson. Mr. Robinson was a diligent, hard-working Member whose talents were swiftly recognised by the Conservative party and he won promotion as a junior Minister at the Welsh Office. Mr. Robinson's work within the constituency won him...

Business of the House (16 Jul 1987)

Paul Flynn: When will the House have time to discuss the serious and important evidence presented yesterday by the Committee of Public Accounts, condemning in remarkably candid language mismanagement and financial anarchy involving millions of pounds of taxpayers' money? Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Welsh Office is condemned for showing no serious concern about the breakdown of management...

Rate Support Grant (Wales) (23 Jul 1987)

Paul Flynn: We have heard a statement that will be received with great resentment by Welsh local authorities. The Secretary of State has already confessed his lack of interest in and understanding of RSG, and nothing illustrated that more than his delivery of the statement and his answer to questions. Practically no illustrations have been drawn from Welsh local authorities and it seems that the right...

Rate Support Grant (Wales) (23 Jul 1987)

Paul Flynn: I ask the Secretary of State to consider the position of local authorities in Wales and to understand that the missing word in his statement is "cuts". The grant percentage is 66·6 per cent. Does he agree that the percentage for every previous year has been above that? It was 66·7 per cent., and in 1980–81 it was 73·4 per cent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Hospital Waiting Lists (16 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when he expects hospital waiting lists in Gwent to fall.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Hospital Waiting Lists (16 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: The people of Gwent will give little thanks for that rather complacent reply. One out of six is not good enough. In the other categories of waiting lists in Gwent, there has been an increase in those of urgent cases; in urgent cases waiting for more than a month; and in non-urgent cases waiting for more than a year. The total number of out-patients who are waiting has increased, as has that...

Primary Health Care (25 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: In response to a moving letter from a constituent who lost her sight because of detectable glaucoma that was not detected in the early stages, I tabled a question to the Department asking for an extension of eye tests to the plotting of visual fields, which would be a more sophisticated and more effective technique. Is the Minister aware that the International Glaucoma Association thinks...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Overloaded Vehicles (30 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he has information as to the proportion of overloaded vehicles which are stopped at their point of entry into the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Overloaded Vehicles (30 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: Is it not important to check a larger proportion of vehicles, as a large percentage of vehicles are overloaded? We know the damage that those vehicles cause to our roads. The important test is not the total weight, but the weight on each axle. If there is overloading, or uncontrolled loading, the damage to our roads is very costly. Is there not an unanswerable case, which was not answered in...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill (30 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill (30 Nov 1987)

Paul Flynn: I shall not weary the House by repeating the arguments put so powerfully by my hon. Friends. However, a number of points affect my constituency and my country. This Bill, like so many before the House, has nothing to do with Wales. During the opening speeches of this debate and during Second Reading debates on other Bills, it was evident that the Government were dealing with the problems of...

British Steel Corporation (Privatisation) (3 Dec 1987)

Paul Flynn: A tribute has been paid to the great sacrifices made by the work force and the families of those in the steel-working communities. Will the Minister urge, as an act of natural justice, that before privatisation goes ahead, the profits to which the communities have contributed enormously will be used specifically to ensure that there is a continuous annealing plant at Llanwern and a second...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Health Care (7 Dec 1987)

Paul Flynn: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has to avoid a deterioration in health care in Wales arising from the financial difficulties faced by many Welsh health authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Health Care (7 Dec 1987)

Paul Flynn: The Minister is again missing out the fact that, in order to stand still, health authorities need to be funded way above the rate of inflation to cope with the demands of our aging population and the more expensive needs of the medical services. The announcement that was made last week in a parliamentary answer shows that the funding is below that level. It copes with inflation, but it does...

Rate Support Grant (Wales) (8 Dec 1987)

Paul Flynn: Is the Minister aware of recent reports that prove that the spiral of decline in low wage rates in Wales is continuing, to the extent that we are now in the disgraceful position in which a full third of Welsh local authority workers are below the European decency level? It will be absolutely right, proper and inescapable for local authorities to increase their rates way beyond the rate of...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Part I: Exemptions (14 Dec 1987)

Paul Flynn: The Bill, which is a prolonged and gratuitous insult to the mass of local authorities, is based on the sins of a handful of local authorities of many parties and the mythology that has resulted which has been believed by the Government. Throughout the 90 hours that the Bill spent in Committee, the Minister from the Welsh Office did not utter one word, and Hansard will record that fact. At...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Rate Support Grant (Wales) (15 Dec 1987)

Paul Flynn: The reward that has been handed out to the Welsh local authorities will not be welcomed in Newport. If this settlement is judged a reward by the Government, I am sure that the Newport authority would prefer to be punished. When the Government figures were first introduced I asked what the settlement would be for Newport. I gave precise figures and asked for them to be confirmed, but I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Newport, West (12 Jan 1988)

Paul Flynn: To ask the Prime Minister whether she has any plans to pay a further visit to Newport, West.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Newport, West (12 Jan 1988)

Paul Flynn: Is the Prime Minister aware of the deep public anxiety felt by the people of Newport, West about the possibility of a new nuclear power station being added to the most crowded nuclear park in Europe, with eight nuclear reactors within a 25-mile radius of 241/4 million people? Is the Prime Minister aware of a statutory instrument which was introduced on the final sitting day before Christmas...

Wales: Labour Statistics (8 Feb 1988)

Paul Flynn: Is the Secretary of State aware of the reported delegation led by the hon. Member for Macclesfied (Mr. Winterton) to the Department of Trade and Industry to plead against the relocation of Government jobs to Wales? What action does he intend to take to ensure that the opposite view is presented to the Department of Trade and Industry, so that the jobs are relocated in Wales to give that...
