Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Pension Funds ( 2 Maw 1992)

Mr Michael Irvine: My right hon. Friend will know that the Serious Fraud Office is conducting investigations into fraud and dishonesty in this sphere. However, there is also the related issue of possible negligence and breach of duty on the part of the supervisory authorities. Will my right hon. Friend give the several hundred Maxwell pensioners in my constituency an assurance that he will scrutinise carefully...

Pension Rebates Review (27 Chw 1992)

Mr Michael Irvine: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, in the light of the appalling fraud perpetrated on the pensioners of the Maxwell-controlled companies, the case for personal pensions is stronger, because with personal pensions it is up to the individual pensioner to choose who manages that pension and in whom to place his or her trust?

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) ( 6 Chw 1992)

Mr Michael Irvine: In Victorian times, my great grandfather was a Free Church minister in a village not 25 miles from Dunfermline. As I listened to the hon. Member for Dunfermline, East (Mr. Brown) in full denunciation, it crossed my mind that the tradition of hellfire sermons in Fife is still alive and strong. However, while all good hellfire sermons were full of denunciation and wit—as was the speech of the...

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) ( 6 Chw 1992)

Mr Michael Irvine: He did, in that he made a few dangerous positive remarks to which I shall refer later. I suspect that if, heaven forbid, the hon. Member for Dunfermline, East found himself Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, he would be tempted to meddle. Governments of any colour are always tempted to do that, but this Government have been better at resisting that temptation than many others. Labour...

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) ( 6 Chw 1992)

Mr Michael Irvine: The word "excellent" echoes across the Chamber from the hon. Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar). That confirms that Labour is strong on regional aid. It always has been—but regional aid has its dangers. Labour all too often forgets the harmful effect that regional policies can have on companies in, for example, East Anglia and the south of England, which fall outside the scope of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Ion 1992)

Mr Michael Irvine: Does my right hon. Friend agree that defence cuts of £6 billion would lead to a massive loss of jobs in defence industries throughout the country? Does he further agree about the hypocrisy of those who call on the one hand for the maintenance of defence contracts in public and, on the other, plan in private for defence reductions?

Business of the House (28 Tach 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: My right hon. Friend will be aware that at a late hour last night the House debated the European Community budget. He may not be aware that, of the 90 minutes allocated, no fewer than 65 minutes were taken up by the speeches of the two Front Bench spokesmen, leaving Back Benchers only 25 minutes to discuss that incredibly important subject. I can tell my right hon. Friend that there was a...

Opposition Day: European Community Budget (27 Tach 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: I share the feelings of outrage expressed by Back Benchers on both sides of the House. The European Community budget is of enormous importance to our people and our economy. Year after year, Britain makes massive net contributions to the European Community budget and it appears that it is barely restrained at all. We are told that the European Parliament actually puts pressure on the...

Opposition Day: European Community Budget (27 Tach 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: I find it disturbing that my hon. Friend says that the European Parliament, far from exercising a restraining influence on the budget, actually puts extra pressure on it. Am I right in thinking that the only organisation that acts as a restraint on budgetary expenditure is the Council of Ministers? I do not find that reassuring, particularly as most of the Community members are net recipients...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: EC Social Charter (26 Tach 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: My right hon. and learned Friend said that he would do all that he could to resist those directives. In view of his assessment of the damage that they are likely to cause to employment in this country, will he say under which article of the treaty of Rome they have been proposed? If the Government do not have the power of veto and we risk having those directives imposed on us, it is an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: EC Social Action Programme ( 9 Gor 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: Will my right hon. and learned Friend confirm that the European Commission has introduced the social action programme under the provisions of article 100A with a view to making it possible for the programme to be enacted by a qualified majority only? Does he agree that article 100A is not the appropriate article? What steps is he taking to challenge the European Commission on that point?

European Council (Luxembourg) ( 1 Gor 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: Will my right hon. Friend comment on the concern felt by many of us that, unless the principle of subsidiarity is rigorously and precisely defined, far too much power will be left in the hands of the European Court of Justice in determining the extent to which the House and other national European Parliaments are yielding up sovereignty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: OECD Report (20 Meh 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the report on agriculture recently issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: OECD Report (20 Meh 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: My right hon. Friend will have noticed that the OECD report concludes that unless the principal trading nations take speedy and effective action to reform their agricultural support policies, there will be severe economic consequences, in particular, the escalation of trade tensions, price inflation and the holding back of economic growth. Does my right hon. Friend agree with that conclusion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Medicines (Advertising) (18 Meh 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the draft European Community directive on the advertising of medicines.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Medicines (Advertising) (18 Meh 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: Does my hon. Friend agree that pharmaceutical companies make a substantial contribution to the funding of postgraduate medical education? Does he further agree that the draft directive, as it stands, would considerably restrict the ability of pharmaceutical companies to continue to provide such funding? Will he do all that he can to get it across to the powers that be in Brussels that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Disabled People (11 Meh 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: Can my hon. Friend confirm that nowadays every disabled 16 and 17-year-old youngster has an opportunity to take up a training place? Can he also confirm that such opportunities were not available to disabled youngsters when Labour was last in power?

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill [Lords] ( 4 Meh 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: The objectives of the Bill are admirable. I support its emphasis on parental obligation and its stress on the duties that both parents owe their children. The Government are right to take steps to ensure that the financial burden of supporting a child is not shifted to the taxpayer, without first making sure that everything reasonable is done to see that its parents between them contribute...

Community Charges (21 Mai 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: It saddens me that Ipswich is one of the very few councils to be singled out for charge capping. I do not like to see my town rubbing shoulders with Lambeth and the other high spenders in what I regard as the league of shame. The hard truth is that Ipswich borough council has brought charge capping upon itself by financial irresponsibility and by excessive spending. I believe that I can...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Manufacturing Trade (16 Mai 1991)

Mr Michael Irvine: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his assessment of the latest trend in the balance of trade for manufactured goods.
