Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Public Order Act 1936 (3 Nov 1983)

Greg Knight: Will my right hon. and learned Friend consider introducing powers for static demonstrations similar to those that exist in respect of processions and marches, and, if not, why not?

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

Greg Knight: I am grateful to have caught your eye today, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and to have the opportunity to make my maiden speech in an important debate. I pay tribute to my predecessor, Phillip Whitehead, who over a period of 13 years served the constituents of Derby, North well and to the best of his ability. I believe that he is one of the lucky casualties of 9 June, in that he has quickly...

Orders of the Day — House Buyers Bill (16 Dec 1983)

Greg Knight: How will the length of those housing chains be shortened by the creation of a registered conveyancer? Is not the problem that the person at the end of the chain often cannot sell? If he cannot do so, there will be a long chain causing delay for others, regardless of who does the conveyancing.

British Rail Engineering Ltd. (24 Jan 1984)

Greg Knight: We owe it to those who are employed by BREL and on the railways to have a debate that is free of false promises and blinkered vision. The hon. Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Mrs. Dunwoody) made a speech which was excellent in its presentation but breathtaking in its inaccuracy. I am concerned about the fact that in Derby it is likely that 600 people will lose their jobs. However, I am also...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: M1 Motorway (27 Feb 1984)

Greg Knight: asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he is satisfied with the nature and standard of repair and improvement work carried out on the MI motorway during the past year.

Business of the House (1 Mar 1984)

Greg Knight: Concern has been expressed recently inside and outside the House about experiments on animals at the chemical defence establishment at Porton Down. Should there not be an early debate—or, at least, an early statement—on the matter? The House would then know what is going on, despite the unnecessary cloak of secrecy, and could decide whether or not it wishes these experiments to continue.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Licensing Hours (15 Mar 1984)

Greg Knight: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to permit flexible licensing hours in England and Wales.

Schedule 2: Amendments of Trade Marks Act 1938 in Application to Trade Marks for Goods (30 Mar 1984)

Greg Knight: Does not the common law already protect service marks by way of an action for passing off?

Schedule 2: Cycle Tracks Bill (30 Mar 1984)

Greg Knight: I have no interest to declare, and I feel rather like a member of "athletes anonymous", in that if any of my colleagues are feeling energetic I usually talk them out of it. Nevertheless, I welcome the Bill, and I know that it will also be welcomed by many of my constituents, particularly the members and supporters of the Derby cycling group and the Cyclists Touring Club. I support the Bill...

Schedule 2: Agriculture (Amendment) Bill (30 Mar 1984)

Greg Knight: We live in an age of wine lakes, butter mountains and outrageously subsidised food being sent to the USSR. There was a report in today's Daily Mail alleging that some farmers may be hoarding food. Will co-operatives be able to use these guarantees to finance expansion of products that are already in surplus? If that were so, I would have serious doubts about supporting the Bill.

New Clause 10: Adjournment (Easter and May Day) (5 Apr 1984)

Greg Knight: Different issues at this time concern different Members of the House to different degrees. I accept that the hon. Members for Ogmore (Mr. Powell) and for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner) are concerned about the question of police powers. My hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth, East (Mr. Atkinson), and, apparently, the Leader of the Opposition, are concerned about the loss of certain marbles. A...

Orders of the Day — Cycle Tracks Bill: Conversion of Footpaths into Cycle Tracks (27 Apr 1984)

Greg Knight: Why does my hon. Friend consider it appropriate that a landowner or tenant with a legal interest in the land should be obliged to signify consent in writing? One can envisage circumstances in which a landowner may have no valid objection, or indeed no objection at all, but declines to take the trouble to put the consent in writing. Could not the clause provide that the local highway...

Orders of the Day — Cycle Tracks Bill (27 Apr 1984)

Greg Knight: rose——

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill: Exclusion of Confessions or Admissions (14 May 1984)

Greg Knight: Is not it also the case that the danger is not just from the officer who acts unlawfully to the extent of using physical violence against the suspect but very often the officer who just wants to cut a few corners? In many instances pressure is applied in a much more subtle way. For example, an accused person might be told that if he signs a statement and makes a confession he can have bail...

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill: Maximum Periods of Detention Before Charge (15 May 1984)

Greg Knight: There seems to be agreement on at least one matter—that the law relating to police powers of detention in England and Wales is vague, uncertain and needs to be updated. As I understand the position, under the Magistrates' Courts Act the police are under a duty to bring a person who is in their custody before the courts as soon as practicable. Over the years, a form of general police...

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill: Powers and Duties of Authority in Investigation of Complaints &C. (15 May 1984)

Greg Knight: Can the hon. Gentleman explain to the House why he thinks there should be an investigation when there has been no complaint? Surely if there is public disquiet over an issue there is likely to be a complaint.

New Writ: Animal Health and Welfare Bill [Lords] (18 May 1984)

Greg Knight: Is it not true that in the form of slaughter that my hon. Friend is describing the animal is not stunned before it is slaughtered, so it must suffer some pain?

Piece Hall, Halifax (No. 2) Bill (By Order) (21 Jun 1984)

Greg Knight: Will my hon. Friend answer his own question and tell the House why Halifax should have this advantage?
