Canlyniadau 1–20 o 126 ar gyfer speaker:Mr David Bellotti

British Nuclear Fuels (Warrington) (16 Maw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: Does the hon. Gentleman share my disgust at the Government cutting, at this very time, £100 million from the budget for employment and youth training? When I previously visited the hon. Gentleman's constituency in Warrington and saw the YMCA there, I saw the pool of talented youth people who are ready to go on training courses, yet, at this very time, when they have the ability, such as that...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill: Persons Liable to Pay Council Tax ( 4 Maw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: There have been many discussions about joint and several liability and, at last, the Government have conceded that principle in one minor area. It is a great shame that we cannot persuade them, even at this late stage, to consider the principle even further. With any property-based tax, there is the problem of who is responsible for paying it. The Lords amendment, which the Government are...

Local Government Finance Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental ( 4 Maw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: The Minister began by saying that there had been a great deal of debate on the Bill. Yet if one asked most people outside the House what the council tax was, they would be unable to answer, because the Government have not explained what it will mean for them. They have not done so because the detail of the Bill will be further bad news for the people. The reason for the Bill in the first...

Local Government Finance Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental ( 4 Maw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I am grateful for that correction, because it adds to my argument. I have no doubt that it is factually correct, because the hon. Member always checks such figures. If the Government sat back for a moment and thought about the number of people involved in that process, they would surely conclude that they had got something wrong. If they conclude, that they had got the poll tax legislation...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill [Lords]: Public Involvement in Delivery of Local Services (25 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause goes to the crux of local service provision. It is really a question of whether we believe that central Government should direct local services, or whether we should now take the opportunity of putting local people—the local electorate—back in charge of those services. In a sense, this is about whether the people...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill [Lords]: Public Involvement in Delivery of Local Services (25 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: We debated this subject fairly fully in Committee, when I put forward a range of opportunities by means of which local authorities could consult people and identify customer care. Having listened to the Minister's reply, I do not think that he has moved any further forward since the Committee debate. It is a little late to suggest that a local authority will have redress if a contract is not...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill [Lords]: CRITERIA FOR A NEW TENDERING REGIME (No. 2) (25 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: If the Minister is so convinced that compulsory competitive tendering is finding favour, where is it doing so? It is not finding favour with any of the local authority associations. The Royal Institute of British Architects and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations are both opposed to it. Everyone outside the House is opposed to it. From where does the support come?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill [Lords]: CRITERIA FOR A NEW TENDERING REGIME (No. 2) (25 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: Compulsory competitive tendering is a subject of wide concern outside the House. I have already said that the local authority associations are opposed to it. Of course the best local authorities want competitive tendering, but they do not want it to be made compulsory: they want choice, because they are nearest to the people. Let us look, for example, at the quality of our architecture. It is...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill [Lords]: Establishment of Staff Commission (25 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I hope that the Government will be persuaded to accept the new clause because the House should send a message of support, concern and understanding to all the people who serve our local authorities. That message will be crucial, because those people will have to face a tremendous amount of change. It is important at this stage that we say to them that we have not only valued the contribution...

Teachers' Pay and Conditions (18 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: The pay rise for teachers is to be warmly welcomed. For many years they have faced the problem of trying to catch up and even this increase will not put them on proper salaries—because of what has happened in the lifetime of this Government. Nevertheless, I am sure that the rise will do a little—not a lot—to retain some of the excellent teachers in our schools, particularly those who...

Teachers' Pay and Conditions (18 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I have known our county treasurer for many years, and I can say that he is one of the most excellent, professional county treasurers in the country. I have great respect for his professional capabilities. Each year in his post he has found that the Government, through their settlements to local authorities and by their legislation, have made his job increasingly difficult—they have forced...

Local Government Bill [Lords] (Allocation of Time): Interpretation (17 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I am sorry that I could not be here to hear the opening speeches, but I was sitting outside Balham station in a train with a broken rail in front of it. I apologise for that, and I will refrain from commenting on the lack of investment in the railways, because that subject is not on the agenda tonight. What is on the agenda is the proper consideration of this Bill. The Hansard report of our...

Local Government Bill [Lords] (Allocation of Time): Interpretation (17 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: There are several.

Caravan Sites (Amendment): Local Government Finance ( 4 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I am glad to have heard all but three minutes of the speeches made so far. I begin by dealing with the overall finance available to local government and the Government's decision to make provision of £41·8 billion for the total standard spending assessment for 1992–93. If we consider that figure and the different services that different local authorities need to deliver, we can conclude...

Caravan Sites (Amendment): Local Government Finance ( 4 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I did not want to return to the subject of Wandsworth. I will compare Wandsworth to all other local authorities. I am not prepared to join in a Government attack on a small number of local authorities when we have the interests of all local authorities at heart. However, the hon. Member for Gedling (Mr. Mitchell) has given me the opportunity to say that, when one of the tenants approached the...

Caravan Sites (Amendment): Local Government Finance ( 4 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: The hon. Gentleman is entitled to his opinion, but the facts stand. If the Government had not taken increased central control, the Isle of Wight local authority—like all other local authorities—would be in a better position to take its own decisions. The hon. Gentleman is inconsistent. It seems that today he intends to support the Government and accept the SSA figures, yet he proposes to...

Caravan Sites (Amendment): Local Government Finance ( 4 Chw 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: Those with experience of local authorities know that, in successive years, balances vary—up and down—but the services provided are the key factor in deciding whether the local authority is doing the job that it should. Before I conclude my remarks—I must say that I am rather enjoying the debate—I want to refer to voluntary organisations. In debating local authorities, we often...

Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (31 Ion 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Manchester, Wythenshawe (Mr. Morris) on choosing this subject for his Bill. It is important and long overdue. At the heart of trying to get rid of discrimination in society lies the desire of the majority of us, if not all hon. Members, to achieve equal opportunity for every member of society. I shall limit my comments to two or three minutes, because...

Orders of the Day — Medicinal Products: Prescription by Nurses etc. Bill (31 Ion 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I congratulate the hon. Member for Chislehurst (Mr. Sims) on deciding to promote the Bill. It is important, because, as the hon. Member said, there have been earlier opportunities for such legislation—the Government could have chosen to include a measure in their order of business, and a private Member once introduced a Bill, but unfortunately did not have enough time to secure its...

Orders of the Day — Medicinal Products: Prescription by Nurses etc. Bill (31 Ion 1992)

Mr David Bellotti: I agree that some of the work of GPs is outstanding in such areas, but they are greatly overburdened and have considerable calls on their time. Those of us who have worked with homeless families have found that many hours can pass between the telephone call and the arrival of a general practitioner. In recent years that situation has grown worse. Many of our GPs now have technology in their...
