Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Expenditure Powers) Bill (7 Jul 1983)

Tony Lloyd: I rise to speak as a nervous new Member, but I am somewhat fortified by the knowledge that I come here to represent all the people of the Stretford constituency. I am proud to represent it, as I was born in that area and can claim to know it well and. I hope, to understand its people and many problems. The constituency, like many others, is relatively new, and I have to acknowledge two...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Greater Manchester (27 Jul 1983)

Tony Lloyd: Is the Minister aware of how badly Greater Manchester has suffered over the past two years because of Government policies? Is he further aware that the enterprise zone in Trafford park has been a cosmetic exercise that has failed and that the Greater Manchester area, unless given practical assistance by the Government, is doomed to further decline?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government Manpower (26 Oct 1983)

Tony Lloyd: Does the Secretary of State accept that the job losses, far from increasing the efficiency of local government services, have led to a cut in the quality and quantity of those services? Does he accept that local authorities have a critical role to play in the inner city areas and should be breaking the cycle of decline instead of being prevented from doing so by the Government's actions?

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill (7 Nov 1983)

Tony Lloyd: It is ironic that it should fall to me to offer the congratulations of the House to the new hon. Member for Leicester, East (Mr. Bruinvels), but it is also a pleasure, because I used to live in Leicester and work in the hon. Gentleman's constituency. The House will have been delighted by the hon. Gentleman's obvious affection for his constituency. I was very pleased that he referred to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Nov 1983)

[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] If the right hon. Gentleman lost that...

Redundancies (Trafford Park) (16 Nov 1983)

Tony Lloyd: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 10, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, GEC's announcement yesterday of a redundancy programme which will cause the loss of 370 jobs at GEC in Trafford park. The matter is specific, because yesterday's announcement will directly destroy...

Petitions: Education (20 Jan 1984)

Tony Lloyd: I welcome, as have all hon. Members, the opportunity provided by the hon. Member for High Peak (Mr. Hawkins) to discuss this important subject. Although I found his speech and those of many of his hon. Friends interesting and highly relevant, much unreality exists in the comments of Conservative Members. The motion calls attention to the improvement of educational standards". Those are fine...

Petitions: Education (20 Jan 1984)

Tony Lloyd: Does my hon. Friend agree that we still find the recalcitrant backwoodsmen among Conservative-controlled authorities? Trafford council, for example, still operates the divisive selective system.

Petitions: Education (20 Jan 1984)

Tony Lloyd: The point that I was trying to make was not a comparison between Trafford and elsewhere, but about the relative change in the Trafford PTR, in particular as it affects a school in the inner city.

Orders of the Day — Data Protection Bill (30 Jan 1984)

Tony Lloyd: The Bill represents a tremendous loss of opportunity. It should have been a significant measure for the protection of civil liberties in an area where there is currently no such protection. However, the Bill is very incomplete and, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Mr. Kaufman) has said, where the Bill claims to be innocuous it is in many places downright harmful. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Open-heart Surgery (Manchester) (31 Jan 1984)

Tony Lloyd: Will the Minister accept that even with recent announcements of increased resources for open-heart surgery at Wythenshawe hospital, the resources are grossly inadequate for the need? Is he aware that the chairman of the district health authority is on record as saying that the evidence is that —even with these additional resources— the waiting list will continue to grow and as the Senior...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Secondary Education (Reorganisation) (7 Feb 1984)

Tony Lloyd: Will the Minister tell the House that he will not, on ideological grounds, stand in the way of an attempt by the Salford diocese to reform the Catholic education system in the north of Trafford along comprehensive lines, as the local authority, having failed to put forward any arguments against the proposals, has at a late stage tried to jeopardise them by putting forward an objection on...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Manufacturing Output (9 Feb 1984)

Tony Lloyd: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what fiscal steps he is taking to expand the output of the manufacturing sector of the British economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Manufacturing Output (9 Feb 1984)

Tony Lloyd: Is the Chancellor aware that the people of Manchester have the same view as Mr. Speaker of the Chancellor's answer—that it is irrelevant to the real issues?

Tony Lloyd: I apologise, Mr. Speaker. The manufacturing base in the north-west, particularly in Trafford park, is being destroyed by the Government.
