Canlyniadau 1–20 o 1096 ar gyfer speaker:Mr Richard Needham

Prevention of Terrorism ( 5 Maw 1997)

Mr Richard Needham: I shall try to assist you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am encouraged in some way that three more hon. Members are present for this, my last speech in the House, than there were for my maiden speech 18 years ago. On the other hand, perhaps that is one of the reasons why I have decided to leave. This is the first debate on security in Northern Ireland in which I have participated, although I was...

Prevention of Terrorism ( 5 Maw 1997)

Mr Richard Needham: I have many views on that subject, but the hon. Gentleman will have to wait for the publication of my book to discover them. I understand the Unionist opposition to political moves, but in the face of that opposition and problems with Sinn Fein in the council chamber, partnership and power sharing in Northern Ireland councils had increased from five to 17 councils by the early 1990s. The...

Prevention of Terrorism ( 5 Maw 1997)

Mr Richard Needham: They were background points, Madam Deputy Speaker. My point is that, because we achieved those changes together, we were able to bring the men of violence towards our debate and away from their agenda of trying to secure change by revolutionary means. We discussed jobs and opportunities for Northern Ireland's long-term future. The situation has not changed altogether, even after the traumas...

New clause 19: Restriction on Re-Broadcasting of Programmes Forming Subject of Fairness Complaint ( 2 Gor 1996)

Mr Richard Needham: In his usual dispassionate way, my hon. Friend the Member for Arundel (Sir M. Marshall) has put the case against the film "Beyond Reason" and expressed our concerns. They are simply that no such film should be made or shown again. To achieve that, something must happen to ensure that such films do not appear on television. This was a disgraceful and disgusting film, which started with the...

Scott Report (26 Chw 1996)

Mr Richard Needham: I am a non-executive director of the General Electric Company, and I was also the longest-serving Minister for Trade in this Administration. The right hon. Member for Derby, South (Mrs. Beckett) knows that if her party were to come to power, it would be her responsibility and that of the hon. Member for Middlesbrough (Mr. Bell)—if they were so lucky to be appointed—to represent the...

Scott Report (26 Chw 1996)

Mr Richard Needham: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: East Midlands (Exports) (14 Meh 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: My Department provides an increasingly comprehensive range of services to all sectors of industry in the east midlands. The improved services are delivered more and more through the rapidly expanding network of business links.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: East Midlands (Exports) (14 Meh 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: My hon. and learned Friend is absolutely right to draw attention to the success of the business links and to the Government's export strategy. We recently announced in the competitiveness White Paper that we shall have 30,000 more companies exporting by the year 2000. We are finding £40 million worth of additional funding; we are holding more exhibitions and conducting more missions; there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Export Trends (14 Meh 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: The outlook for exports in 1995 is excellent. The Confederation of British Industry reports that export orders are growing faster than ever before and that optimism among exporters is at its highest for a generation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Export Trends (14 Meh 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: My hon. Friend is absolutely correct. At Question Time two years ago, the hon. Member for Livingston (Mr. Cook) constantly told the House that as we came out of recession into recovery our export position would get ever worse and the deficit would become ever greater. Perhaps that is why the Leader of the Opposition was sensible enough to move him to another shadow position. We are going...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Export Trends (14 Meh 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: I am interested in what the hon. Gentleman says, although he gave me no warning of his question. It is interesting that in this case he wants to see a takeover go ahead when his colleagues are so often against takeovers. The real question that he should address is whether the balance of British manufacturing is becoming more world competitive and improving the opportunities for Britain. In...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Manufactured Goods (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: My right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer will publish new forecasts for the balance of payments in June. Manufacturing exports were at record levels in 1994 and the prospects for this year are excellent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Manufactured Goods (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: Every month the hon. Gentleman comes back for more; he often asks these questions. Let me give him the figures for cars. In 1979, exports of cars from the United Kingdom were worth £838 million and imports of cars into the United Kingdom were worth £2.6 billion—exports were a third of imports. In 1994, we exported £5 billion-worth and imported £9 billion-worth. We have more than halved...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Manufactured Goods (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: My hon. Friend draws our attention to the capital goods sector, our share of which to non-OECD countries has increased from 5 per cent. two years ago to 7 per cent. last year. Wherever one looks, the success story of British manufacturing is there to be seen. Of course, we had to get over the 1960s and 1970s when we had to live with the results of Labour Governments, and it took some time to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Manufactured Goods (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: The hon. Gentleman is a fair and reasonable opponent, although he always likes to reflect on the negative rather than the positive. He must accept that the legacy that was inherited in the 1980s meant that it took some time to set things right. Between 1974 and 1979, UK productivity rose by less than 1 per cent., in Germany it rose 4.5 per cent., in France it rose 5 per cent., in Italy it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade Statistics (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: In 1993, the latest year for which information is available, the United Kingdom had a 5 per cent. share of world visible exports, an 8 per cent. share of world invisible exports and a 6 per cent. share of visibles and invisibles combined.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade Statistics (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: The hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Sheerman) said that we were losing market share after market share. In fact, that is not true. Our share of world trade has gone up from 4.9 per cent. under the last Labour Government to 5.2 per cent. now. For a nation of 1 per cent. of the world population to have 6 per cent. of the world's trade is no mean achievement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade Statistics (10 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: The hon. Gentleman knows that our share of world trade increased last year. Our share of exports in volume terms was 11 per cent. up against an increase of 8.5 per cent. Instead of being somewhat down, it was a hell of a lot up.

Exports ( 3 Mai 1995)

Mr Richard Needham: It is already.
