Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I beg to move, to leave out from "That" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: 'this House welcomes the fact that the Government, recognising the serious adverse public interest findings in the Monopolies and Mergers Commission's Report on the Supply of Domestic Gas Appliances, and the need to strengthen competition, has accepted its responsibility for examining thoroughly...

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I know that my hon. Friend will be aware that that was not a decision for me, but it is a decision that, as a member of the Government, I uphold.

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: No, I cannot give way. I shall return to some specific matters in the report that the right hon. Member for Lanarkshire, North found it convenient to slide over.

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: No. This is a short debate. I am telling the House the Government's position, and I cannot give way at this stage in such a short debate. I should like to set out for the House the three important findings that the Commission made and that the Government have accepted and feel bound to act on. First, the commission found that the British Gas Corporation was monopolist in relation to the...

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I hope that I am as much a tigress about private sector monopolies or anything that undermines competition as I am in the case of the public sector. The right hon. Member for Lanarkshire, North asks why more appliances are available in the BGC showrooms than in private sector showrooms. It is because private sector showrooms do not have access, and they do not have access because of the...

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I must make one point clear because it is very important, as I am sure the right hon. Gentleman will agree. By no means do the Government say that safety is unimportant. On the contrary, It is very important. But even without the present publicity campaign —which, as I have told the House, I regret and deplore —safety would rightly be a matter of public and essential concern in any...

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I regret to say that it has been brainwashed by a highly misleading document. The association must look to its own complaints and the evidence that I am now presenting before it makes its final decision. It is easy to instill fears in people. It is the easiest thing in the world to stir up fears, particularly in an unwarranted campaign. Anybody could be forgiven for being made fearful by...

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The right hon. Gentleman has only to see, in any department store, the size, range, and flexibility of the electric cookers on offer in the market compared with gas cookers. Perhaps he has not been to such stores.

Orders of the Day — Domestic Gas Appliances (17 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I shall not give way again. It is not fair to other hon. Members who want to take part in the debate. More emphasis on the private sector avenue for retailing these appliances would inevitably lead, as a result of response to demand, to wider choice and more availability, and that is what consumers want. In any change, whichever option is finally decided upon by the Government, there will...

Book Manufacturing Industry (12 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I congratulate the hon. Member for Manchester, Central (Mr. Litherland) on taking this opportunity to raise the problems affecting the book manufacturing industry. The Government are well aware of the importance of the industry and do not underestimate it. A delegation from managements and unions in the industry came to see my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and me on 9 February....

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: It is about time that that was said.

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I beg to move, to leave out from 'That' to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: 'this House, recognising that the needs and aspirations of women can only be achieved within a free and fair society and a healthy economy, welcomes the measures which the Government has taken to achieve these.'. The motion chosen by the Opposition for a full Supply day debate has demonstrated, in...

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: —while the proportion of women unemployed, as a percentage of the total unemployed, has fallen over the past year which is encouraging [Interruption.] Go ahead and cheer. At the same time, the percentage of women unemployed, as a proportion of the total unemployed, is the second lowest in Europe. That is another thing that we can applaud. Eighty-five per cent. of all part-time jobs are...

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: If the debate is notable for one thing, it is the hon. Gentleman's conversion to the cause of women. This is the first occasion on which I have heard him make any—

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I thought that the hon. Gentleman made that sedentary observation with a note of regret in his voice.

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have two daughters,, and a grand-daughter.

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Lady is correct. It did decrease, but it has increased since 1979. The important point is that the trend is rising at a time of difficult economic circumstances. I return now to the educational opportunities and facilities under this Government. At one end of the scale, contrary to what the hon. Member for Crewe says, the number of children in nursery schools and centres has risen,...

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner) says "Hear, hear". I have to admit that the price of school meals has been raised twice under the Government by a total of 40 per cent., 20 per cent. of which was an increase proposed and approved by the Labour Government, who, when in office, raised the price of school meals by no less than 108 per cent. The motion also refers to taxation. The...

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: It puts forward for discussion major options for change, such as the ability to choose individual taxation, with an equal division of reliefs and allowances. Personal disposable incomes have risen in real terms by 8·4 per cent. between 1979 and the end of 1980. All those facts and more—time will not permit me to give further detail—support the case that the Government, far from...

Orders of the Day — Women's Rights (11 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Gentleman asks me to name one lower price. The rate of inflation has been coming down consistently. The hon. Gentleman will be aware, from what I am sure are his frequent excursions into the high street, that a number of claims about lower prices are being made. I have faith in the discernment of the British consumer to evaluate whether prices are lower. The fact is that they are...
