Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Social and Economic Situation (29 Jun 1987)

John Redwood: Sir William van Straubenzee represented the Wokingham constituency for almost 28 years, and during that time he showed himself to be a tireless correspondent and letter writer, a doughty debater and an elegant and witty speaker. In representing all of the people of Wokingham, I shall do well if I live up to his high standards as a parliamentarian and a fine constituency Member of Parliament....

"Today" Newspaper (1 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that it is significant that no other bidder publicly emerged to save the jobs? Does he further agree that it shows that rich Liberals, having discovered that such views lose them votes, are not prepared to have those views lose them money?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill [Money] (6 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. What does this have to do with the money resolution? I cannot see that it is in order.

Finance Bill: Interpretation (14 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: Having listened to the hon. Members for Sedgefield (Mr. Blair) and for Great Grimsby (Mr. Mitchell), I feel that the Opposition have run out of problems to allege that the Government are running into and not that the Government have run out of solutions to problems. It is extraodinary that profit-sharing pay should be represented as a scheme to cut wages. It is a scheme to allow employees...

New Clause 3: Permitted Excess of the Fund (20 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: Does my right hon. Friend agree that if in some future legislation we manage to move nearer to money purchase in the way described by my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Sir B. Rhys Williams) we would solve the problem of early leavers and the whole point of those amendments was to improve job mobility?

New Clause 3: Permitted Excess of the Fund (20 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: I shall endeavour to speak without hesitation, repetition or deviation because I know that Opposition Members are worried about our motives for coming here tonight. I can assure them that I was not lassoed by a Whip or waylaid by a Minister. I came tonight because I sat through the Committee stage of the Bill and I want to make some points about what emerged. Opposition Members would be well...

Bill Presented: Tourism (22 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, North-East (Mr. Kirkhope) for the opportunity of taking part in the debate without too much competition from the Opposition Benches. It is a sadness to many of us that 12 Conservative Members are here on their own to consider how northern towns can be revived and the important role that tourism and leisure industries can play in that...

Bill Presented: Tourism (22 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: That is one example, of many, of the sort of development that can begin to turn the tide in hard-pressed inner-city areas. An interesting study arrived on some of our desks this week from an independent Commission that was set up by housebuilders in this country which considered the problem of inner-city rehabilitation. I give it two cheers because it shows that house builders have...

Central Berkshire (24 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Berkshire, East (Mr. MacKay) for allowing me time in this important debate and for the forthright, clear way in which he expressed our joint anxieties. The anxieties of Wokingham are very much those of Bracknell, but while we like and admire Bracknell, we do not wish to grow closer by physical development. A green wedge is needed between settlements,...

Central Berkshire (24 Jul 1987)

John Redwood: Is my hon. Friend aware that the current rate of development in London is still insufficient to prevent a net migration? Is she aware that she is agreeing with my hon. Friend the Member for Berkshire, East (Mr. MacKay) and me in saying that more can and should be done in the cities? We are looking for more urgency to get those thousands of acres in inner London back into housing use.

Orders of the Day — Public Utility Transfers and Water Charges Bill (21 Oct 1987)

John Redwood: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm or deny that it is now Labour party policy to welcome competition in the large utilities, be they private or public? Is it now agreed that competition improves the service to the customer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Maternity Beds (27 Oct 1987)

John Redwood: Is my hon. Friend aware that in the West Berkshire district health authority area one of the problems in keeping beds open is the high cost of recruiting labour, which is extremely difficult given the national average rates agreed? Does she have any proposals for breaking the log-jam so that we may recruit the staff that we need to keep the beds open?

Financial Situation (27 Oct 1987)

John Redwood: Does the Chancellor agree that there are times when concerted foreign exchange intervention can be dangerous before the underlying problem of the deficit has been resolved? Is not that danger especially clear if the German and Japanese authorities put up their interest rates to deal with the monetary consequences of that intervention?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Invisible Earnings (29 Oct 1987)

John Redwood: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the current level of invisible earnings in the United Kingdom; and how it compares with the levels five and 10 years ago.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Invisible Earnings (29 Oct 1987)

John Redwood: What surprisingly good figures the Financial Secretary has produced. Does he agree that those figures show that the service industries are important generators of jobs, wealth and income, and that they are an important part of industrial recovery, because strong services help industries?

Opposition Day: Financial Markets (5 Nov 1987)

John Redwood: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman confirm that the national executive committee under his chairmanship is looking into an extensive way of intervening in people's savings and wants to go back to the idea that savings should be confiscated and directed at the behest of Labour politicians? Does he seriously believe that that would solve the problems for which we have a perfect answer...

Opposition Day: Financial Markets (5 Nov 1987)

John Redwood: The question asked on the television programme was very specific. When asked what I would recommend in the likely circumstances of slower growth, I said that there should be no increase in borrowing and that we should keep a tight ship, which is what my right hon. Friend the Chancellor has been doing. When asked what I would recommend if world GNP fell by five percentage points in a single...

Opposition Day: Financial Markets (5 Nov 1987)

John Redwood: indicated dissent.

Opposition Day: Financial Markets (5 Nov 1987)
