High Court Injunction (Mr. Speaker's Order) (27 Jan 1987)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill [Lords]: County, Controlled and Maintained Special Schools (21 Oct 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I must start with an incontrovertible statement of fact. Every right hon. and hon. Member has a mother, but only one of them has me as a mother. I congratulate by hon. Friend on trying to meet the objections and anxieties of many parents. He wants to create a framework for sex education in schools which is appropriate, moral and kept within certain confines. In my view he has failed on one...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill [Lords]: County, Controlled and Maintained Special Schools (21 Oct 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: That is as may be. He is just the sort of person who might be chosen as one of these new parent governors. I do not even know whether he is a parent, and that is the danger. I wonder what chance that girl's mother would have had against a governing body composed even in the new way that is proposed. How would such governing bodies react if at the time of their annual report a substantial...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 May 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 May 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: During the debate a number of right hon. and hon. Members have, by inference, represented the Privileges Committee as some kind of pompous hanging and flogging body which is paranoid about secrecy. At this stage in the debate we should ask ourselves whether there is a certain amount of pompousity in an editor of a newspaper who decides that it is in the "public interest" or, as the...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 May 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The Privileges Committee has considered every aspect, including that point. It has been said several times by right hon. and hon. Members that it is the confidentiality of evidence given that is of importance to the Select Committees, and that there will be a lack of confidence among those providing evidence to the Select Committees. In fact, that lack of confidence already exists and is...

Prison Officers' Dispute (29 Apr 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I concur with my right hon. Friend in his general line, and deplore the militant action that has taken place. But will he bear in mind that—as he will know from correspondence that he has had with me—prison officers in Gloucester have been under considerable pressure? That pressure is the result, among other things, of the presence of a special unit in the prison and of at least one...

Orders of the Day — Animals (Scientific Procedures) Bill [Lords]: (17 Feb 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I must begin with both a declaration of interest and a confession. I am on the main board of Boots, a company engaged in the research and development of new drugs. I confess that I am one of those who are deeply affected when confronted by animal suffering. I would not go so far as to say more deeply affected than when confronted by human suffering, but it is often a struggle. I care...

Shop Hours (Auld Report) (20 May 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I did not say that.

Shop Hours (Auld Report) (20 May 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I said that if our customers wished us to open, we would do so.

Shop Hours (Auld Report) (20 May 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I welcome the opportunity to debate the Auld report and all its implications. First, I must declare two interests. I am on the main board of Boots, one of the largest retailers in the country, and I am a former Minister for Consumer Affairs.

Shop Hours (Auld Report) (20 May 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have not heard much about consumers from Labour Members. Boots does not advocate Sunday trading, for several reasons, but if the law is changed, and if that is what its customers want, it will open. However, I advocate the implementation of the proposals in the report, subject to adequate qualifications and safeguards. Five major considerations should be borne in mind when discussing...

Shop Hours (Auld Report) (20 May 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I regret that I cannot give way to my hon. Friend. I must get on with my speech. For example, most of the major shops and department stores in the city centres of California do not open, but on the edge of the cities shopping malls and the larger drug stores open. In the centre of Chicago, where there has been major investment in a city centre mall, most of the shops open and do very well....

National Health Service (18 Mar 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I shall detain the House only briefly. I declare an interest in that I am on the main board of Boots plc which is affected both as a drug company and as a retailer of drugs. I shall not, however, be playing what has been referred to as the drug company game. I shall not be speaking with a forked tongue and I make it clear from the beginning that I support the regulations. Many points have...

National Health Service (18 Mar 1985)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Many generic substitutes are imported. They are not made under the same quality control as drugs with proprietary names made by British companies. That is why one has to approach generic substitution with the greatest caution. That is why I urge my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, when listening to the review committee, to pay attention to the quality control of the generic...

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill: Discipline Regulations (29 Oct 1984)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I intervene only briefly but with strength of feeling. I fear that I cannot support my right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary. Much comment in the debate has so far been directed at the position of the police, with which I sympathise, and at the position of the black community which may or may not be discriminated against, with which I also sympathise. However, I wish to draw the...

Orders of the Day — Police and Criminal Evidence Bill: Discipline Regulations (29 Oct 1984)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: If what the hon. Gentleman says is true in a minority of cases, that is already covered by existing law. If we want the police force to uphold the law and to continue with a difficult task, which the overwhelming majority of the police force do magnificently, we cannot ask them to do so with one arm tied behind their backs. Yet that would be the result of the amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 May 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: If my right hon. Friend has time today, will she watch a recording of last night's "Panorama" programme? Is she aware that for the most part, but not all, it was an odious, subversive, travesty in which Michael Cockerell and other BBC reporters dishonoured the right to freedom of speech in this country? Is it not time that such people accepted the fact that if they have these rights, they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Film Industry (1 Feb 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Before replying to the hon. Member I shall, with your permission, Mr. Speaker, tell the House that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade has asked me to express his regret that a long-standing overseas visit prevents his attendance here today. We recognise the value of a healthy British film industry. I am pleased to say that studio bookings are reported to be well up on last...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Film Industry (1 Feb 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I cannot reply to two of the hon. Gentleman's three questions. His first question requires an answer by my right hon. Friend the Minister for the Arts, and I cannot answer the second as I do not normally reply to questions on rumours. The disbanding of the Central Office of Information does not greatly affect the British film industry. There is every reason for optimism in the industry at...
