Devolution (11 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that there is growing regional consciousness in England, with the regional development agencies and the regional chambers, at least one third of whose membership comprises non-elected social partners? Does he recognise that central powers are increasingly going to regional offices, and that the only thing that is missing is full democratic accountability?...

Devolution (11 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — New Clause 1: Additional Bereavement Allowance (17 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: In view of the hon. Gentleman's concern for the fundamental importance of the contributory principle, will he commit the Conservative Opposition to restoring it where they summarily removed it, such as with earnings-related unemployment pay and in the undermining of the state earnings-related pension scheme? That profoundly affected the individuals who suffered.

Eurostar Services (19 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that residents of the north-west living in Liverpool, Lancashire, Cumbria and elsewhere are many miles away from a suitable airport, and that, in any case, the existence of an airport in no way obviates the need for rail links to the channel tunnel—a need which was identified by the north-west chamber of commerce and manufacturing industry in the north-west?

European Union (25 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the form of the Government of Israel is a matter for the people of Israel and will largely be the product of their electoral system? Does he agree that while it is right that the European Union and others do their utmost to secure peace on the basis of Oslo and the Wye accords, it is ultimately a matter for negotiation between the Palestinian people and the...

European Union (25 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Is the right hon. Gentleman suggesting that the major structural funds that are currently bringing employment to Liverpool, regenerating the city centre and giving support and skills to people in local communities constitute money that is being wasted, and money that his party would not wish to be spent?

European Union (25 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: I welcome this evening's wide-ranging debate just as I welcome the Government's positive attitude to our participation in the European Union for the benefit of people in the United Kingdom. It is in marked contrast to the negative attitude adopted previously, when local authorities such as Lancashire county council and other regional groups had to open their own offices in Brussels so that...

Palestine (26 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm that a negotiated peace, as expressed in the European statement, is absolutely vital, and will he condemn the showering of northern Israel with rockets by Hezbollah, which occurred on the eve of the election of the Labour-led Government in Israel?

Palestine (26 May 1999)

Louise Ellman: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Financial Services and Markets Bill (28 Jun 1999)

Northern Ireland (5 Jul 1999)

Louise Ellman: I congratulate the Prime Minister on his determination and perseverance in the inevitably complex pursuit of peace in Northern Ireland. While the achievements of the Good Friday agreement necessarily focus on the saving of lives, does he agree that it is important to note openings for increased standards of living for the people of Northern Ireland that are emerging from the new east-west...

Class III: Transport (12 Jul 1999)

Louise Ellman: The hon. Gentleman is concentrating on personal and diversionary matters rather than on policy, because he has no policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Oct 1999)

Louise Ellman: What advice will my right hon. Friend offer the Leader of the Opposition when the right hon. Gentleman visits a betting—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Oct 1999)

Louise Ellman: What advice will my right hon. Friend offer the Leader of the Opposition on Friday, when the right hon. Gentleman visits a betting and gaming establishment in my constituency—a constituency in which unemployment has fallen by more than 22 per cent. since the general election? Given the Tories' record of economic failure, their opposition to the new deal and the minimum wage, and their...

Orders of the Day — Financial Services and Markets Bill (Suspension) (25 Oct 1999)

Louise Ellman: Yes, Madam Speaker. Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that the Bill has involved so much time because detailed consideration is being given to every precise point that Opposition Members, including him, are making? Does he agree that that is a strength of the Bill and the reason why this procedural motion should be agreed to without much more ado?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Employment (24 Nov 1999)

Louise Ellman: Will my hon. Friend support the work of the north-west England and Irish trade group, which brings together the private sectors in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and the north-west, working with the north-west development agency and the Bank of England? Is he aware that that group is identifying opportunities for investment and employment in all those areas?

Orders of the Day — Liverpool (Regeneration) (29 Nov 1999)

Louise Ellman: Liverpool's urban renaissance is under way. It is seen most clearly in the city centre, which has been identified in the north-west economic strategy as the engine of growth for both city and region. That is despite the shadow cast by the speculating and exploitative Walton group plc, which has stifled regeneration by acquiring key city centre sites, securing public sector grant, yet failing...

Opposition Day: Tube Investment (8 Dec 1999)

Louise Ellman: Tonight's debate was called by the Opposition. We might have expected to hear a recognition of the problems that their sad and disastrous 18 years in office created for public transport, and we might have hoped for some apology. We might have expected to hear some solutions to the legacy of decline and destruction that they left. Instead, they seem to have short memories. They remember little...

Opposition Day: Tube Investment (8 Dec 1999)

Louise Ellman: I am very interested to note that the hon. Gentleman did not deny what I said. Indeed, he reaffirmed it. I hope that he remembers that this Government have stopped the automatic fuel escalator and will ensure that any funds raised from it will go to improving road transport. Not one penny of revenue from his Government's policies did so.
