Canlyniadau 1–20 o 863 ar gyfer speaker:Mr Peter Fry

Electronic Devices (Madam Speaker's Statement): Social Services (12 Maw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: Does my right hon. Friend accept, first, that the true picture in Labour-controlled Northamptonshire is totally opposite to that painted by the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith)? We have a situation in which elderly people have been denied a place in the home of their choice, or that choice has been delayed for many weeks. Some of them have died before they have been...

Clause 25: Certain Fees to Be Treated as Premiums Under Higher Rate Contracts (11 Maw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: I support my hon. Friend the Member for Dover (Mr. Shaw). I do so particularly because I am concerned about the effect of the measure on smaller travel agents rather than larger companies. It is undoubtedly clear that very many smaller agents depend on commission from selling travel insurance to sustain themselves in competition against larger companies. My hon. Friend is chairman of the...

Local Government Finance ( 3 Chw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: There used to be a saying among Conservative Members: "Vote Labour for higher taxation." We still say that, but we have just had a wonderful illustration of the fact that, if we vote Liberal Democrat, we shall be taxed even more than we would be taxed by a Labour Government. All that we have heard is a catalogue of complaints about more and more money being required. Does the hon. Member for...

Local Government Finance ( 3 Chw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: Over the past three years, I have expressed extreme concern about the way in which the area cost adjustment has been defined and operated. Two years ago, I refused to support the Government in the Lobby because I felt that—

Local Government Finance ( 3 Chw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: The hon. Gentleman asked me a question. If he is kind enough to allow me, I will now answer it. Two years ago, I refused to support the Government because I believed that no progress was being made in ironing out the difficulties of the area cost adjustment. Last year, largely owing to the intervention of all the Northamptonshire Members of Parliament, the Government decided to set up a...

Local Government Finance ( 3 Chw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: The hon. Gentleman has clearly shown some of the unfairness of the present formula. Will he give the same assurance as my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State on changes to the area cost adjustment, bearing in mind the fact that any proposed change this year was effectively torpedoed by Labour-controlled local authority organisations?

Local Government Finance ( 3 Chw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: The hon. Gentleman should give us the figures.

Local Government Finance ( 3 Chw 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: I am not sure whether I am more pleased by the Secretary of State's comment that he will be standing at the Dispatch Box next year, or by his promise that progress will be made on the area cost adjustment. Will he underline what he has just said? Is it his intention that progress really will be made next year? I understand the problems that he has had to deal with for next year, but will he...

US-UK Air Service Agreement (22 Ion 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: I am honoured that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State will reply to my humble debate. It shows the significance and importance of the subject that I am raising. The talks between Her Majesty's Government and the United States Government on changes to the bilateral air agreement between our two countries are of the greatest significance for civil aviation in this country. The move...

US-UK Air Service Agreement (22 Ion 1997)

Mr Peter Fry: I am sorry; I have only a short time left. I believe that the guiding principles of our civil aviation industry should be fairer competition, less monopoly, greater opportunities for British airlines in foreign markets—including the United States—enabling new services and airlines to come into being, and the long-term consideration of the interests of the consumer. No one will be more...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (27 Tach 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: The hon. Member for Bath (Mr. Foster) seemed to say that it was impossible for resources to be moved from one form of county council spending to another. He appeared to assume that every last economy had been made. If one allows for alterations due to the nursery voucher scheme, Northamptonshire's standard spending assessment shows an increase of 3.6 per cent. this year. I would agree with...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (27 Tach 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: If one follows the right hon. Gentleman's argument thus far—that the Budget includes many tax increases—it appears that, if he were being totally honest, he should advise his hon. Friends to vote against the reduction in income tax that the Chancellor announced yesterday.

Local Government Finance (27 Tach 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: Does my right hon. Friend accept my deep disappointment about the failure to do anything about the area cost adjustment? Continued delay means that unfairnesses will continue. I understand the problems that my right hon. Friend is having with the Labour-controlled local authority organisations, but I have to explain to my constituents why it is that a Conservative Government have to give way...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Traffic Reduction (25 Tach 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: Will my hon. Friend not be seduced too much by Opposition arguments? I agree that it is right to reduce traffic where possible, but I am sure that he accepts that the Government do not want to appear to be anti-motorist. Most of my constituents, and most of his, own a motor car and expect to be able to use it in reasonable circumstances. I hope that that will be the policy of the Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government Finance (19 Tach 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: Does my hon. Friend remember that, among the delegations that came to his Department this year, was one that represented a number of counties and all the major political parties and that was concerned about the unfairnesses of the area cost adjustment? Does he accept that those unfairnesses exist; that they were highlighted in the report by Professor Elliott; and that, if nothing is done to...

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

Mr Peter Fry: I hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, North-West (Dr. Hampson) is not referring to me. I was present during the first two or three hours of the debate and I have been sitting here for more than two hours since. I hope that there are others who have spoken to whom his strictures apply. I do not want to wander into the byways followed by some Opposition Members, but there is one...

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

Mr Peter Fry: Would the hon. Gentleman be interested to know that no less a rugby luminary than Mr. Cliff Morgan, who is not particularly well known for his dedication to the Conservative party, said clearly that the decline of Welsh rugby began when the grammar schools were abolished?

The Olympic Games: Rugby Union ( 1 Gor 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: I find considerable sympathy with the Opposition new clause because the right hon. Member for Copeland (Dr. Cunningham) mentioned the sport that is dearest to my heart—rugby union football. In the past few weeks, I have discussed the decision of the English Rugby Football Union with a considerable number of rugby players and officials, particularly from the junior clubs. It being Ten...

The Olympic Games: Rugby Union ( 1 Gor 1996)

Mr Peter Fry: There is widespread concern that the recent agreement between the Rugby Football Union and Sky Television not only has endangered the future of the five nations championship but will deprive the majority of people in this country of the opportunity to see home internationals when they are being played, by removing them from their television screens. I regard that as exceedingly unfortunate...
