Channel Tunnel Rail Link (Barking) (21 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: In supporting the points made so eloquently by my hon. Friend the Member for Barking (Ms Hodge) on behalf of her constituents, I draw attention to a further issue related to the link as it passes through Barking and the rest of east London. It is clear that significant environmental problems will be caused by the link, whatever the ultimate route. If, as I hope, my hon. Friend is successful...

Social Housing (18 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: Does the Minister accept that securing a permanent home is a matter of paramount importance for the overwhelming majority of families in the United Kingdom? Does not his statement herald the creation of a whole tier of families who will simply be shuffled from one temporary let to another and never have the prospect of securing the permanent home they need?

London Docklands Development Corporation Bill [Lords]: Alteration of Limits of Jurisdiction (14 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: On its foundation, the LDDC embarked on its regeneration remit with an approach that, in its early days at least, largely ignored the local communities where it was based. There were several instances of brick walls being built to keep apart the existing community and the new development and its incoming occupiers, who were the intended beneficiaries of it. That created enormous resentment,...

London Docklands Development Corporation Bill [Lords]: Alteration of Limits of Jurisdiction (14 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: I shall gladly do that, but I was glad to put on record my agreement with the chairman of the LDDC. I was surprised to read in the Bill the long list of organisations and private owners who have opted out of the byelaws. The local authorities have accepted the pressing need for the byelaws to be drawn up in order to safeguard the public interest around the dock areas. My hon. Friend the...

London Docklands Development Corporation Bill [Lords]: Alteration of Limits of Jurisdiction (14 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: I am grateful for that clarification. Certainly, exemptions undermine the Bill. My point is that I believe that there is growing anxiety among Conservative Members about the damage being done to our social fabric by the fact that the market has been allowed to rip in a number of areas, including the development of docklands. The hon. Member for Havant (Mr. Willetts) concluded, in an...

London Docklands Development Corporation Bill [Lords]: Alteration of Limits of Jurisdiction (14 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: I do not for a moment suggest that little has been achieved: a great deal has been achieved, although we might debate the mechanisms that may have led to those achievements. I repeat my point—increasingly recognised by Conservative Members—that it is extremely important that democratic institutions, locally acknowledged, play their proper role. This Bill will give byelaw powers to the...

United Kingdom (Inequalities) (8 Jul 1994)

Stephen Timms: I am grateful for the opportunity to take part in this debate, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and welcome the initiative taken by my hon. Friend the Member for Gateshead, East (Ms Quin) in causing it to happen. I apologise for being unable to be here at the start of the debate, but I wish to introduce some information from my constituency, the London borough of Newham, where I had the privilege to be...

Opposition Day: Housing and Urban Policies (29 Jun 1994)

Stephen Timms: Thank you for the opportunity to speak, Madam Deputy Speaker. My predecessor, Ron Leighton, who tragically died in February, was held in high regard by hon. Members on both sides of the House—as many have taken the trouble to tell me over the past three weeks—and also in the constituency. I worked with him first as a Labour party ward official, then as secretary of his constituency party...
