Prayers: Privatisation (Costs) ( 5 Ebr 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I sought this debate largely because of a constituency interest. My constituency in central Lanarkshire has been particularly devastated by the impact of the restructuring of the steel industry. My personal assistant, Mr. Frank Roy, is a former shop steward from Ravenscraig steel plant, which is no more. I am conscious that my constituents worry that privatisation has been not only in their...

Prayers: Privatisation (Costs) ( 5 Ebr 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: That is a very quick political point to make. Yes, there are more shareholders than trade unionists, and undoubtedly some trade unionists hold shares. That is partly because the Government have been intent upon attacking trade unionists and reducing the number of people in employment in this country, thereby making them less eligible for membership of a trade union. There has been dramatic...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Application of SS.63 to 66 to Debts Held by Associates of Banks ( 4 Ebr 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I wish to take up the time of the House only briefly, primarily because of my concern about certain aspects of the Government's position on universities. Last Friday, as a member of the court of the university of Strathclyde, I had cause to discuss with the principal and the chairman of that university the capital funding difficulties that universities are currently experiencing. I think...

New clause 1: Discretionary Share Option Schemes in the Privatised Utilities ( 3 Ebr 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I am sorry that the hon. Member for Wirral, South (Mr. Porter) is no longer in his place because he mentioned greed and envy. I find it interesting that every time we discuss this matter, Conservative Members use those words. That says rather a lot about them and their view of remuneration and not quite so much about Opposition Members. The hon. Member for Wirral, South failed to recall that...

New clause 1: Discretionary Share Option Schemes in the Privatised Utilities ( 3 Ebr 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman is aware that there are different kinds of share option schemes. The 36,000 ordinary employees of British Gas usually benefit from savings-related share schemes and tend to be less able to have an impact on the share price than the senior executives who can directly affect it. The hon. Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Smith) mentioned the impact that...

Points of Order (28 Maw 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I seek your guidance on a matter reported in The Guardian today. I was shocked to learn from a reply from the Financial Secretary that £136 million of taxpayers' money has been used to advertise privatisation share sales. At no point in any of the debates on the various privatisations was it apparent that sums of that magnitude were to be expended. I seek...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Maw 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Tuesday 14 March.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Maw 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: The visit of the Prime Minister to the Gaza strip and the donation of equipment and aid are to be welcomed, but why have the Government chosen to donate police equipment when the entire community could have benefited from the excellence of British manufacturing facilities to provide clean water facilities, better health facilities and educational facilities?

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Housing (Scotland) (15 Chw 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I am totally at odds with the view being propounded by the Minister. How can he possibly argue that there is a positive incentive in having increased housing benefits, when people apply for them because they are living in poverty that is induced by the Government? They are living in housing conditions that are being made increasingly intolerable by the Government's expenditure cuts. I cannot...

Business of the House ( 2 Chw 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: In view of the pleas made by my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Mrs. Mahon) and the statements made last week by the Secretary of State for Social Security that Ministers do not earn enough, could time be made for a debate on this matter, particularly as the Secretary of State for Social Security suggested that Back Benchers' salaries should be reduced to enable them to take jobs...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Vehicle Excise and Registration (30 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I am impressed by my hon. Friend's comments about the effect of the coastal trade in Scotland. Our Scottish heritage has a great impact on our tourist trade. Is it not ironic that many hon. Members on both sides of the House have been very attracted by the stories of the Vital Spark and the history of Scotland that is connected with the puffers? When we study the background to our coastal...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Approval of Companies as Trusts (25 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I can appreciate that the hon. Gentleman referred to 3i, but in doing so he emphasises one of the points that I sought to make: large venture capital organisations such as 3i will not go for the small to medium-sized enterprise that needs a small sum of money. The small to medium-sized enterprise is much more vulnerable to short-termism than the larger enterprise.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Approval of Companies as Trusts (25 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I referred to 3i with some feeling, because, in my previous occupation, which was interrupted by the parliamentary by-election .that brought me to this place, one of my jobs was to try to get money from venture capital companies such as 3i, for start-ups that would have a turnover, within one to one and a half years, of £1 million to £1.5 million. Believe me, if I could have got money out...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Approval of Companies as Trusts (25 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: Does the Minister accept that there is a considerable problem in the venture capital industry, particularly in relation to small and medium-sized enterprises? There is a funding gap, and one of the reasons for that, the venture capitalists tell us, is that it costs as much to service a loan for a major management buy-out or for a major privatisation as it does to service one for a small or...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Approval of Companies as Trusts (25 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I am delighted to be called to speak after the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Horam) because I agree with a number of points in his speech. I wish to address my remarks to the area of business start-ups. As the Financial Secretary said, it is important to look at the broader context of the purpose behind establishing venture capital trusts. The aim is to provide assistance to small and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Renewable Energy (25 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I am surprised at the Secretary of State's statement, and would be grateful if he explained how he can say that about renewable energy when he has turned down a pioneering proposal for the Dalmacoulter landfill site, in my constituency. The proposal—to burn off methane gas to generate electricity—would provide enough fuel to heat 1,000 homes for 20 years, and fits in with the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Spirits, Beer and Cider: Rates (23 Ion 1995)

Mrs Helen Liddell: I do not have the same constituency interest as the hon. Member for Moray (Mrs. Ewing) or my hon. Friend the Member for Dumbarton (Mr. McFall). However, like many Scots Members, I have whisky interests within my constituency. We are faced with an issue that spans the United Kingdom. The action of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in imposing increased duty on alcohol has an impact on major...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local Government Reform ( 7 Rha 1994)

Mrs Helen Liddell: Does the Minister agree that, given the interest of his hon. Friend the Member for Dover (Mr. Shaw) in activities in my constituency and the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Monklands, West (Mr. Clarke), it is absolutely reprehensible that the hon. Member for Dover has failed to make available to Professor Robert Black, who is chairing the independent inquiry, the 20 pages of...

Debate on the Address (16 Tach 1994)

Mrs Helen Liddell: Thank you for calling me to speak in this debate, Mr. Deputy Speaker. As the newest Member of the House, I looked forward to the Gracious Speech. My hon. Friend the Member for The Wrekin (Mr. Grocott) referred to the ceremony that attaches to it. With many other hon. Members, I moved from this Chamber to the other place and was surprised to discover on my arrival that the Gracious Speech was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Youth Recruitment (26 Hyd 1994)

Mrs Helen Liddell: Does the Minister agree that it is not only in civil service recruitment that young people are being disadvantaged? In view of the promises made by the Prime Minister and other Ministers about extra assistance to Lanarkshire to aid youth employment, can the Minister explain why the budget of the Lanarkshire development agency has been cut by Scottish Enterprise and how that is meant to assist...
