Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Reduction of Entertainments Duty.) (18 May 1954)

Mr Frederick Willey: I apologise for not having heard the Chancellor's speech because I was engaged in committee downstairs, but I listened to the whole of the debate preceding the Chancellor's speech and I have failed to understand why he cannot on this occasion give way. I hope that when the Financial Secretary comes to intervene he will tell us when we adjourn for the Summer Recess so that we shall know...

Orders of the Day — National Assistance (21 Dec 1954)

Mr Harold Wilson: I do not apologise for bringing the attention of the House back to the consideration of the position of a very large number of people who have no banking accounts and are not concerned with signatures on the backs of cheques, but who are much more concerned where the next meal is to come from. Even at this late hour it is right that we should continue to debate these National Assistance...

Public Authorities (Public Relations) (8 Jun 1956)

Mr Tony Benn: ...yield the floor To Dukes who mildly disagreeWith Barons from the T.U.C.…And then, amid a general yawnThe Motion is—by leave—withdrawn. I was only testing your vigilance, Mr.Speaker, having informed you that it would not be necessary for you to exercise it I believe that the facts established by this Motion meet with the general agreement of the House. Ever since the war, at any...

Foreign Affairs (19 Feb 1959)

Mr Reginald Paget: The other day Vicky had a cartoon in the Evening Standard which showed Mr. Dulles, the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary, and behind them on the wall the Gallup Poll chart which showed Labour support overtaking Conservative support. The caption underneath was, "How can you ask us whether our journey is really necessary?" I am no supporter of summit meetings, but if we are to have them...

Economic Situation (18 Jul 1961)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition and the right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson) both made a straight political point when they said that the country had been lulled into a false sense of security in the last election. As I have said before, that would have come better from them if the Labour Party had fought the election on a programme of austerity. The right hon....

Orders of the Day — Technology (14 Jul 1965)

Mr John Osborn: The hon. Member for Bristol, Central (Mr. Palmer) and my hon. Friend the Member for the Isle of Ely (Sir H. Legge-Bourke) clashed about whether science and politics mixed. The debate has shown that politics has as much chance of mixing with science and technology as oil with water. The Government have taken their own action on the report resulting from the work of the Committee headed by Sir...

Ministerial Advisers (23 Mar 1976)

Mr Ian Gow: ...cost of their salaries alone during the current year is £196,000. The employment of special advisers to Ministers is a legitimate matter of public interest and concern. Their salaries are paid for out of public funds. It is the duty of this House, and, above all, of Back Benchers, to scrutinise public expenditure and to be vigilant over the conduct of the Executive. The need for such...

Earl of Stockton (Tributes) (12 Jan 1987)

Dr David Owen: We remember a remarkable man. We have heard from people who were hon. Members with Harold Macmillan and knew him for many years. For my generation of New Statesmen readers, brought up on a weekly Vicky cartoon, he was Supermac—a lovable old rogue. I remember his characteristics in that period as Prime Minister. He was the first Prime Minister to try to make Britain a member of the European...

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Simon Hughes: That was the assessment made by the Forrest committee in the light of the recent announcement. That is the figure which has been announced in the light of funding. Obviously, funding and resources will always be the major determinant of the speed with which programmes can be implemented. The hon. Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing) may want to develop that later. The second priority...

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill [Money] (2 Nov 1987)

Mr Dave Nellist: ...here in 1983 and the international banker across the way did not. The House is being asked to authorise the Secretary of State to spend money on travel and other administrative expenses necessary for the implementation of the Bill. The core of the Bill consists of the total removal from all 16 and 17-year-olds of the right to any form of supplementary benefit. I regard that as equivalent...

Orders or the Day: Attendance Allowance for Children Under Two (12 Jan 1988)

Mr Dave Nellist: As my hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mrs. Beckett) has mentioned, this is the first time for a decade and a half that the full House has had the chance of debating and voting on whether there should be a lower age limit below which an attendance allowance cannot be made to someone with severe mental or physical disabilities. There have been plenty of questions during that period,...

Active Citizenship (12 May 1989)

Ann Widdecombe: My remarks will be briefer than I intended, not only because other hon. Members wish to speak, but because the hon. Member for Monklands, West (Mr. Clarke) has been waiting patiently for his opportunity. I have considerable sympathy with him. I know what it is like to sit in the House on a Friday, hoping to speak, and I trust that his wishes will be more fully realised than mine have been...

Business of the House (18 Feb 1993)

Michael Connarty: ...on what he is trying to do about the problem of missing persons in the United Kingdom? Is he aware that there are 43,000 runaways each year? Happily, most return home without having been missing for a long time? Is he aware that it is the second anniversary of the disappearance of my constituent Vicky Hamilton, who is still untraced? Tragically, her mother died in January without knowing...

Disability (Grants) Bill: Grants to Certain Organisations Concerned with Disabled Persons (27 Apr 1993)

Barry Sheerman: I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 1, leave out line 13 and insert 'to enable payments to be made to or for the benefit of people with disabilities for the purpose of promoting their independence and freedom of choice.'. In Committee, we were disappointed that we were not successful in amending the Bill despite the debate that we had on Second Reading and the obvious shared concerns...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (11 Mar 1994)

Mr Alf Morris: I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Exeter (Sir J. Hannam). Although we face each other across the Floor, we are, not for the first time, wholly at one in this debate. All of us in the House represent disabled people who have looked forward to this debate with hope in their hearts. Their hope today is that the Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill can win strong enough support to...

Orders of the Day — Cervical Cancer (Radiation Injuries) (21 Nov 1995)

Janet Anderson: I am grateful for the opportunity this evening to highlight the plight of a number of women who have suffered the most severe injuries resulting from radiation treatment for cervical cancer. Approximately one year ago, I was invited to meet a group of women in the Manchester area who had, during a period from the late 1970s to the early 1980s, received radiation treatment for cervical cancer...

Prayers: Bull Bars (Prohibition) Bill (29 Mar 1996)

Nigel Griffiths: First, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Newport, West (Mr. Flynn) on mounting a one-person campaign to persuade the Automobile Association, the Royal Automobile Club, the police force, the royal parks and even some insurance companies to have bull bars removed. I have no doubt that my hon. Friend has saved lives already by the action that he has taken. He is now giving the...

European Union (12 Dec 1996)

Mr Peter Brooke: It is always a pleasure to participate in a great debate with the shadow Foreign Secretary, whom I have never followed previously in a debate. One of the best things in life is surprises, and one of the pleasures of listening to the shadow Foreign Secretary is that one never knows quite what he will say, which is rather a change from many of my other colleagues in the House. By chance, my...

Orders of the Day — BSE (22 Dec 1997)

Mr Barry Jones: In the absence of a Welsh Office statement—I understand the reason for that—may I ask my right hon. Friend about the implications for my constituency, our beef farmers and the amounts of money involved? I welcome my right hon. Friend's decision to have a public inquiry. May I tell him about Miss Vicky Rimmer, a young woman who fell victim to a CJD or CJD-type disease, and who died only...

Orders of the Day — Protection of Children Bill (26 Feb 1999)

Michael Connarty: No, we are short of time. Expanding on such a philosophical point would not necessarily add to our discussion. We need a very close concordat with the new Scottish Parliament on how information from lists can be transferred quickly. Everyone who works for a public authority—all authorities named in the Bill are public authorities—in Scotland must already agree to undergo a Scottish...
