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

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. He accuses me of having a constituency interest, but I cannot think that his interest in Nottingham is anything other than parochial. If he thinks a little more carefully about what I have said, he will realise that I have spent a lot of time on strategy and concentrated on Leicester because I am a Leicestershire Member and proud of it, as the hon. Member...

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

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman says, "Not for long." I do not want to appear parochial, but we must take first things first. I now want to turn to the success of the electrification of the St. Pancras-Bedford stretch. Before that line was electrified, we were told in a whole range of arguments why that could not be done; why it would be a great waste of money; why it could not possibly work; and that...

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

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for arguing the case for privatisation, or at least private investment. Typically for an Opposition Member, he thinks in terms of reductions, but we are talking about increasing the service. It may be important at times to have injections of private capital. Perhaps on another occasion, or even this evening, we will hear some profound and interesting...

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

David Tredinnick: I am grateful for that intervention, because if the Government, in their wisdom, decided to privatise the east coast main line, the proceeds of that sale—

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

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman has said a great deal. I meant to say that we have had a warm feeling this evening because there has been—

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

David Tredinnick: I would not want it to cool off. I was not hoping to make political points, and if I have been flippant, I had not intended to be—

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

David Tredinnick: The points that I have been making about the electrification of the main line from St. Pancras to Leicester and beyond have not been made lightly. I say that in all sincerity. It is essential to the east midlands and to the long-term well-being of my constituency. This has not been a time-wasting exercise, because this subject must be dealt with. If I did not feel so strongly about it, I...

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?

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 — 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?

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...

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...

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?

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...

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....
