Canlyniadau 1–20 o 1332 ar gyfer speaker:Mrs Angela Rumbold

London Underground (25 Chw 1997)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: May I warmly congratulate my right hon. Friend on his announcement? After many years of trying to improve London Underground, those of us who live in London and use it all the time will welcome the opportunity for investment in London Underground continuing year on year rather than having to be considered annually. That has been one reason why it has been so difficult to plan and improve...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (24 Chw 1997)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I have listened carefully to both sides of the debate, including the proposals by the Opposition spokesman. Until the last few moments of the speech by the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith), I could discern proposals relating only to an increase in bureaucracy. My right hon. and hon. Friends and I are alarmed to think that reduction or abolition of fundholding...

Orders of the Day — Protection from Harassment Bill (17 Rha 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: As it stands, the Bill refers to harassment or stalking that causes upset and distress. A constituent of mine is being harassed by a group of people. Will the Bill, as it were, tie up the various criminal acts to which I believe that group is subjecting my constituent? Not just one person, but a group of people, is causing considerable harassment to a single woman with a family, and I should...

Orders of the Day — Education and Local Government (29 Hyd 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I do not believe that single cases make particularly good arguments, but I sympathise with the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (Mr. Ashton) in one respect. A disruptive child makes it difficult for the teachers and the parents to maintain their efforts to provide a good education for the other children. There is obviously a problem with that child. I hope very much that the local education...

Orders of the Day — Education and Local Government (29 Hyd 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I hear what the hon. Gentleman says, but I fail to understand his logic. The majority of those who send their children to independent schools pay their taxes and support the state system, but choose to spend more to give their children a different education. Forgive me if I am wrong, but I thought that being allowed to spend one's taxed money on whatever one chooses was the benefit of living...

Orders of the Day — Education and Local Government (29 Hyd 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Education and Local Government (29 Hyd 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: Will the hon. Gentleman help me and the rest of the House by confirming that it is the new Labour policy to strive for a fully comprehensive system of education?

Orders of the Day — Education and Local Government (29 Hyd 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: And I won.

Orders of the Day — Education and Local Government (29 Hyd 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: The hon. Gentleman should understand that I campaigned substantially throughout my career as a local councillor and as chairman of the education committee in Kingston to preserve the selective system, that I did so successfully, and that all my three children went to the selective grammar school.

Schools (Self-government) (25 Meh 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: Will my right hon. Friend accept my warmest congratulations on the introduction of the White Paper, not only for the necessary proposals on delegated budgets for schools, which are excellent, but more especially because, for the first time, she has suggested that the Government will reverse the tragic act of vandalism that the Labour party committed in 1975 to get rid of grammar schools,...

Asylum Seekers (Benefits) (24 Meh 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: Does my right hon. Friend accept that the vast majority of my constituents—I have a multicultural constituency—are absolutely fed up to the back teeth with fraud and asylum seekers' abuse of the system? They will be very pleased with his statement. All parts of the community have felt very strongly about the matter for a considerable time. Does he agree that it is monstrous hypocrisy of...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: During my 20 years of involvement in education I have rarely listened to three-quarters of an hour of such unmitigated drivel. If the hon. Member for Oldham, Central and Royton (Mr. Davies) has set out the proposals that the Labour party is offering for the future education and training of our young people, I despair. I hope that my right hon. and hon. Friends will take every opportunity to...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend. He has put his finger exactly on the point. I can understand the confusion of teachers and I am not condemning them. I think, however, that many of them have been misled over a number of years by a tremendous amount of rubbish that has been put out in training colleges and elsewhere about the nature of a teacher's job. Their role is to ensure that the...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I do not dispute that. Sir Ron Dearing rightly drew attention to those skills. It is more important that young people learn how to behave and deport themselves within the world at large, and especially within the world of work, than to acquire a series of computing skills at a training college or during a training course. Most children aged five years are beginning to learn how to use VDUs...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I understand the point that my hon. Friend is trying to make, which is that political correctness has entered the classroom. Indeed, much to my regret, it is to be found throughout society. Unmitigated drivel is talked about political correctness. I should like to pursue the point about what the employer wants. Like every other hon. Member, I visit the businesses and industries in my...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I put all those skills together within what I have consistently talked about, namely, preparation of young people by schools to meet the challenges of the world of work. Schools should not try to take children into industries or to emulate the world of work. They have no idea about the world of work. That has been demonstrated without question in the past 30 years. What schools are good at...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I am extremely reassured to hear that from my hon. Friend the Minister. I am a purist, so I hope that some of the A-levels will remain pure. We should never deny to young people in our schools and universities who are really good and can achieve something that is meaningful the opportunity to achieve the highest academic qualifications at whatever level. That is incredibly important for the...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: I do not agree with my hon. Friend. There is no evidence to suggest that we have not been particularly good at development because we lack a broad education at A-level. I have always been in favour of AS-levels, because they offer students an opportunity to study a broader curriculum. The last point on which I wish to concentrate is what young people want. We ask ourselves what employers...

Prayers: Education (16 to 19-year-olds) (17 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: Does my hon. Friend agree that over the past 20 to 30 years there has been a dramatic change in the framework and form of education in this country? The one thing that is the gold standard, the test against which we can judge academic achievement, is the A-level. Would it not be a disgrace for us to change our system to those of other countries simply because they are different and because we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Diet (Health Aspects) (14 Mai 1996)

Mrs Angela Rumbold: Does my hon. Friend agree that, far from encouraging our European partners to enter into discussions about diet, it would be much more profitable if some members of the press, the popular press and others who write articles about diet and encourage people to go on foolish diets, were to be co-ordinated and given better direction so that some of our young people do not embark on diets after...
