Prayers: Manufacturing and Competition (10 Jul 1987)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to catch your eye so soon after my arrival in the House. I am aware that not all previous hon. Members for Bosworth have been so fortunate. Sir William Edge, elected as Member of Parliament for Bosworth on 31 May 1927, was first successful in catching Mr. Speaker Fitzroy's eye on 12 July 1928, 14 months later. I noted Mr. Speaker's...

Prayers: Inner Cities (Policing) (17 Jul 1987)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Lady seems to ignore the fact that the Metropolitan police have always been unable to recruit all their men from the neighbourhoods. That is why some have had to come in from outside. If they could have recruited them locally, perhaps they would have done so.

Prayers: Inner Cities (Policing) (17 Jul 1987)

David Tredinnick: If the hon. Gentleman is so anxious to have some influence on the police in London, why has he taken a stance absolutely against the police consultative groups set up under the Scarman arrangements and the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984?

Prayers: Inner Cities (Policing) (17 Jul 1987)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman was right the first time.

Prayers: Inner Cities (Policing) (17 Jul 1987)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful for the opportunity of catching your eye, Mr. Deputy Speaker, at the end of this debate because I spent three years at Oxford university researching the problems of policing ethnic minorities in Britain and of their relations with the police. I am watching the clock the whole time and I shall be brief. Opposition Members, especially the hon. Members for Hammersmith (Mr. Soley)...

Health (23 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: There are two key aspects of the promotion of good health that are grossly underrated — alternative, or complementary, medicine and preventive medicine. I wish to bring to the attention of the House my personal experience of complementary medicine and the vital preventive work of an association in my constituency that is fighting, almost single-handed, a vicious killer disease....

Health (23 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who also represents a Leicester constituency, and of course I shall support him in his application to the Home Secretary. As I said, my constituents and I greatly appreciate the concern of my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary. Combat has been very grateful for previous grants and I assure my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services who has...

Defence: Second Day's Debate (28 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful for having been called this evening, especially as I visited British front-line troops in the spring of this year, together with 15 other Conservative candidates. I am happy to say that all 15 are now hon. Members of the House. I want to share with the House some of the experiences that we had on that trip and that are relevant to the debate. Secondly, I want to examine...

Defence: Second Day's Debate (28 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman is correct, but there is a lot of military activity.

Defence: Second Day's Debate (28 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman has made two helpful interventions. He laughs and jokes about Soweto. I have been to Soweto, and he has not. [Interruption.] I had a look at the problems there, too, because it is much better to go and see and form one's own opinions. The changes that have taken place there are another issue. One issue that came up in Germany—which is far away from Soweto—was...

Defence: Second Day's Debate (28 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: I doubt that because in London Conservatives tend to hold seats won from Labour and that can be seen from the results of the last two elections. In conclusion, I say yes to INF, but we must move on to a conventional weapons agreement. Secondly, we should bear in mind that to many Germans' the German question goes beyond East German-West German relations in the sense of the geographical...

Supplementary Estimates 1987–88: BP Share Issue (12 Nov 1987)

David Tredinnick: Is there not a case for saying that a company the size and stature of BP should at all times retain an office in the City, where it can be on top of current issues?

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

David Tredinnick: I must declare an interest. I work for a company involved in the private rented sector. Were it not for the existing restrictions on that sector, the company would be much more involved than it is. Before the introduction of shorthold tenancies and assured tenancies in recent years, many private landlords had given up and were selling their properties as they became vacant. Those two...

Orders of the Day — Firearms (Amendment) Bill (21 Jan 1988)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. I am also grateful that he is prepared to reconsider compensation. I have been approached by an engineer, a respectable member of my community, who has three self-loading rifles. On the assumption that he will be forced to sell them, he has approached six dealers, all of whom said that self-loading rifles were virtually unsaleable. Four...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Pensions (8 Mar 1988)

David Tredinnick: To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what assessment he has made of the feasibility and utility of comparing the value of basic state pensions between different European social security and national insurance systems; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Pensions (8 Mar 1988)

David Tredinnick: Is it not the case that the figures peddled by the Leader of the Opposition and his friends in Strasbourg are grossly misleading and bogus—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] Is it not the case that the pension figures are a cruel confidence trick?

Ways and Means: British Railways (No. 2) Bill (By Order) (15 Mar 1988)

David Tredinnick: My hon. Friend mentioned several hon. Members who are concerned that the line from St. Pancras should be electrified as far as Leicester, but that concern extends west of Leicester. My constituents are just as concerned as those of the hon. Members whom my hon. Friend has mentioned. It is a serious problem, and my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Sir J. Farr) shares my concern about it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 1988)

David Tredinnick: To ask the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 19 April.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 1988)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the single European market, which will be introduced in 1992, offers immense opportunities to British industry? Does she also agree that if British industry is to take advantage of that agreement, it must act now?

Opposition Day: British Railways (No. 2) Bill (27 Apr 1988)

David Tredinnick: Like the hon. Member for Sheffield, Central (Mr. Caborn), I regret that Mr. Speaker was unable to select the amendment in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Sir J. Farr). It is inconceivable that the Bill should go ahead without the inclusion of a firm commitment from British Rail for the electrification of the midland main line. Such a move is logical and essential. We...
