Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Engagements (25 Mar 1998)

Louise Ellman: Do not Labour's Budget decisions to increase child benefit by a record 20 per cent., to fund a national child care programme for the first time and to concentrate financial help on the poorest families and children, demonstrate Labour's commitment to equality and opportunity? Does the Prime Minister contrast that situation with the record of 18 years of Tory Budgets, which intensified...

Orders of the Day — Regional Development Agencies Bill: Activities of Agencies in Rural Areas (1 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: Has the hon. Gentleman considered clauses 7 and 8? Clause 7 says that the regional development agencies must follow a strategy in their work, and clause 8 says that a regional chamber must be set up in each RDA area and the strategy discussed with that regional chamber. As the regional chambers are representative of all areas that fall within the region concerned, I should have thought that...

Orders of the Day — Regional Development Agencies Bill: Activities of Agencies in Rural Areas (1 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: In saying that regional development agencies must be accountable to the House, does the hon. Gentleman seek to relegate the importance of regional chambers in influencing the work of the regional development agencies? Is he aware that the regional chamber in the North West is due to meet this week and that it has the full support of all partners in that region, including many partners from...

Louise Ellman: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Regional Development Agencies Bill: Access to Meetings etc. of Regional Development Agencies (1 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: The right hon. Gentleman seems to have had a draconian change of mind. No public access was allowed to the quangos established by the previous Government, which were shrouded in great secrecy. I ask him directly—after his comments, with which I agree, on the importance of regional development agencies in serving the people of the regions—whether he would support direct elections either to...

Orders of the Day — Regional Development Agencies Bill: Responsibility for Training and Enterprise Councils (1 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the training needs of an area include the need to retrain and diversify in some regions? Diversification of some sectors of industry in the north-west—for example, the aerospace industry, which is very militarily based—may require a retraining policy that is sectoral and not limited to localised areas. Does the hon. Gentleman not think that it makes...

Orders of the Day — Regional Development Agencies Bill: Vesting and Acquisition of Land: Supplementary Provisions (1 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: Regional development agencies will be a breakthrough for the English regions, because they will combine commitment to an area with the ability to act in relation to investment in companies, the development of property and premises, business support, training and retraining. I shall illustrate the way in which a development agency can affect an area by referring to Lancashire Enterprises, set...

National Blood Authority (8 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: I thank the Secretary of State for his strong statement and decisive action. His decision vindicates the very hard work of campaigners who fought so hard to preserve Liverpool's centre of excellence. I am delighted to hear today's news. Does he agree that the situation left in the National Blood Authority means that one centre in Manchester is conducting testing and processing on behalf of 7...

Louise Ellman: When he will announce the additional individual health authority allocations as outlined in the Budget. [38671]

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Authority Allocations (28 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: I very much welcome my right hon. Friend's statement about additional funding for Liverpool. Will he confirm that that is in addition to the £11.4 million extra already announced for Liverpool health authority? What steps does he intend to take to ensure that the money provided by the Government is used for the purpose for which it is intended—reducing waiting lists?

Clause 27: Married Couple's Allowance etc. in and After 1999-2000 (29 Apr 1998)

Louise Ellman: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that his comments distort the Government's proposals, which extend choice and react to a known need? If the Conservative party is concerned about families and children, why did it take the election of a Labour Government to produce the largest ever increase in child benefit?

Hillsborough (8 May 1998)

Louise Ellman: When the House was given the welcome news that the events surrounding the Hillsborough tragedy were to be scrutinised, I asked my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary for an assurance that the feelings of those who were most concerned would be fully considered. I had in mind feelings of anger and distress, but also the mounting sense of injustice. It is nine years since the tragedy, and we...

Louise Ellman: Does my hon. Friend welcome Israel's commitment to implementing United Nations Security Council resolution 425, which calls for Israel's withdrawal from the occupied areas of Lebanon? Does he agree that, in order to make that meaningful, both Syria and Lebanon must ensure that the civilians on Israel's northern borders do not suffer further attacks?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Utilities (Regulation) (14 May 1998)

Louise Ellman: What plans she has to change the regulatory framework for the utilities to give increased priority to consumers' interests. [40963]

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Utilities (Regulation) (14 May 1998)

Louise Ellman: Will my hon. Friend give me a categorical assurance that the new regulations will be strong enough to deal with the casualties of Tory utilities privatisation? Will they be able to deal with the legacy of fuel poverty, whereby poorer people get the worst deal? Will they be able to deal with the outrageous situation whereby the privatised water companies have increased bills to domestic...

G8 Summit (20 May 1998)

Louise Ellman: I welcome the initiative and the lead that this country has taken, particularly on debt reduction. Is my right hon. Friend able to give a commitment that this country will continue to support European and international programmes that permit the exchange of knowledge and skills between the UK, and countries and areas in the process of development or reconstruction, which would allow those...
