Canlyniadau 1–20 o 1072 ar gyfer speaker:Ms Audrey Wise

Mentally Ill People (16 Maw 2000)

Ms Audrey Wise: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Batley and Spen (Mr. Wood) for initiating the debate. His presentation concentrated on adults with mental health problems. May I draw the Minister's attention to issues relating to children and young people? Most people working in the field worry that problems among children and young people are increasing. Their families can be plunged into...

Orders of the Day — Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Bill (10 Maw 2000)

Ms Audrey Wise: I am listening carefully to the hon. Gentleman. Does he agree that the contribution of poor people to global warming is proportionately far less than that of most of us? Poor people spend less on vehicles and other pollutants. A pensioner with a one-bar electric fire does not contribute as much to global warming as any of us. Will he bear that in mind?

London Government (15 Chw 2000)

Ms Audrey Wise: I shall make a very short and plain statement. The debate has been conducted largely as though we were discussing a matter affecting only London, which may seem to be a reasonable conclusion as the order is about elections for the London assembly and the London mayor. However, the matter has a wider significance. It is not true, as has been well established, that the London elections will be...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I shall be brief. Like some other hon. Members, I want to concentrate on the issue of serious violence committed against property. We all abhor terrorism and we are all afraid of it—I certainly am—but I have met people who have committed serious violence against property and against a Trident submarine. They were not terrorists and their motivation was not to frighten us but to save...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I find it difficult to be reassured by reassurances because, like the right hon. and learned Gentleman, I believe in looking at what is in the Bill. I do not always understand the decisions of the DPP on ordinary criminal matters and I know for a fact that I am not the only Member who does not understand those decisions. Why should I expect to understand decisions made by successive Home...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I take the hon. Gentleman's point. I very much hope that the Government listen to the points that have been raised. Nearly everyone who has spoken in the debate, with the possible exception of the right hon. Member for Maidstone and The Weald (Miss Widdecombe), has criticised the Bill, but not out of any desire to support terrorism or terrorists—on the contrary. It is indeed dangerous to...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I saw my hon. Friend's intervention on the screen, and I agree with him. I urge my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, who has a certain reputation for being willing to engage in serious discussion and listen to serious points—perhaps more than some of his colleagues—to justify that reputation in respect of the Bill. We do not want to make it seem as though there are divisions in the...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: Would my hon. Friend care to take account of those people who commit serious violence against property, not with a view to destroying life, but with a view to saving life? I think of those women—some of whom were acquitted—who attacked the Hawk aircraft with hammers, and of the Trident Ploughshares 2000 organisation, which attacked the Trident submarine to save life, not to destroy it....

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: rose—

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (14 Rha 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: Does my hon. Friend recall that for many years it was Labour party policy to supply arms to the African National Congress? Help was not confined to silent consent, but extended to aid in the armed struggle.

Orders of the Day — Welfare Reform and Pensions Bill: Incapacity Benefit: Restriction to Recent Contributors ( 9 Tach 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: Will my right hon. Friend acknowledge that it is possible that we will vote on the merits of the case?

Welfare Reform and Pensions Bill: Incapacity Benefit: Restriction to Recent Contributors ( 3 Tach 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I want to speak mainly about severe disablement allowance. I agree with the remarks of my hon. Friend the Member for Kingswood (Mr. Berry) and of my right hon. Friend the Member for Coatbridge and Chryston (Mr. Clarke) about incapacity benefit. They made a good case. Severe disablement allowance is under attack. That is a paradox, because the allowance was introduced under a different name...

Welfare Reform and Pensions Bill: Incapacity Benefit: Restriction to Recent Contributors ( 3 Tach 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: My hon. Friend has vindicated what some Labour Members did on 20 May this year. Would the Government have made any movement—even a minuscule one—had there not been 67 Labour Members in the Lobby? My hon. Friend is encouraging people to have the courage of their convictions, so that we can achieve more concessions. There is still time for more movement. As we have managed to obtain a...

Welfare Reform and Pensions Bill: Incapacity Benefit: Restriction to Recent Contributors ( 3 Tach 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I intervene in the interests of accuracy. The hon. Gentleman is wrong when he suggests that the primary target of SDA was housewives. Initially, it was made more difficult for housewives than for men and single women to receive SDA. It affected everyone. After a bit of push, the benefit was extended to housewives on an equal basis. Recipients would qualify without a means test.

Orders of the Day — Yugoslavia ( 1 Tach 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: Would my hon. Friend care to quantify the help that he just mentioned?

Opposition Day: Preston Guild Community Health Trust ( 7 Gor 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: In 1990 the then Preston health authority appointed Mr. Les Howell as general manager. He is now suspended and has been informed that his contract has been terminated. The purpose of tonight's debate is to examine that situation and relate it to wider concerns about mental health and community services in Preston. When Mr. Howell was appointed, his remit was to merge two directly managed...

Opposition Day: Preston Guild Community Health Trust ( 7 Gor 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: No. The hon. Gentleman had an Adjournment debate a few weeks ago, and should be satisfied with that. Since Mr. Howell's suspension, I have received many expressions of support for him from all sections of the minority communities in Preston and throughout Lancashire. I have also received expressions of support for him from carers of trust patients. One of those who wanted to get rid of Mr....

Opposition Day: Preston Guild Community Health Trust ( 7 Gor 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I do not expect the Minister to give me a definitive reply and I am aware that I have left him little time, but I hope that he will earnestly reflect on what I have said. Indeed, I am sure that he will do so.

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (24 Meh 1999)

Ms Audrey Wise: I know that the right hon. and learned Gentleman is enjoying this enormously, but it might do no harm to remind him that some of us on the Labour Benches remember the considerable difficulties that he got into with the law on lots of occasions as Home Secretary. So, a little humility would not come amiss.
