Canlyniadau 161–180 o 1224 ar gyfer speaker:Mrs Sally Oppenheim

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

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: It would be unfair to Opposition Members, who are obviously keen and raring to go, if I were to extend my remarks beyond what would be an acceptable period of time. My hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Security in winding up the debate, will deal with benefits and allowances for which her Department has responsibility. These present a significient improvement in...

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

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I hope that my own credentials are well established. I was a sponsor and supporter of the two anti-discrimination Bills of 1972 and 1973 introduced by the hon. Member for Fife, Central (Mr. Hamilton).

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

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Gentleman invited my sponsorship and I was a supporter of both Bills. There was no division then and there is no division now between both sides of the House on the subject. Inequality of opportunity and discrimination existed then and exists now in a number of areas. However, some substantial progress has been made. There is no doubt that the adverse effects of these disadvantages...

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

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I spent a considerable time at the beginning of my speech dealing in a factual manner with the completely false assertions in the Opposition motion which the House is debating. I dealt with those matters in a factual way. I made it clear that, providing in the interests of greater opportunities for women, of raising the status of women and of increasing their rights, I wanted to take part of...

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

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The facts are the countless numbers of small businesses, not least in the tourist industry—our third largest exporting industry—which could not afford to employ women while those provisions were in force. It will have been noted that I have not often used the word "equality". That is because we should be cautious about how we apply the notion of equality to the elevation of women's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Chimneys (Safety) ( 1 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: In view of the 158 tragic deaths reported in England and Wales in 1979 from accidental poisoning by gas and vapours due to blocked flues and chimneys and inadequate ventilation, I propose to start a widespread publicity campaign this autumn, before the winter heating season starts. It will pay particular attention to the needs of the elderly. Meanwhile, I hope that this reply will alert all...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Chimneys (Safety) ( 1 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his kind remarks and assure him that wide consultations took place before the planning of the publicity campaign started in order to take account of the experience of all interested parties. The consumer councils involved have played an active role in helping us to promote the scheme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Chimneys (Safety) ( 1 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have seen those advertisements. A routine check on basic services can be carried out for about £9 in London and £8 elsewhere. I am concerned that people should have safety checks, but they may lead to much higher costs and eventually to disconnection of supplies. I do not want to discourage people from having the checks, but they should not think that the quoted prices are necessarily the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Chimneys (Safety) ( 1 Meh 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am always prepared to pay tribute to every part of any industry that contributes to safety. Many people right across the gas industry contribute to the safety of consumers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hazardous Products (Labelling) (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am only too aware of the many tragic accidents from poisoning to children reported every year that arise from such ordinary household products as cleaning and polishing agents, disinfectants, solvents and paints. I agree that the best way to prevent such accidents is by suitable warning labels. I intend shortly to circulate safety regulations on the matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hazardous Products (Labelling) (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: My hon. Friend will be aware that this matter has concerned me since I introduced a Ten-Minute Bill in 1972. I have given instructions for the EEC legislation and the Health and Safety Executive draft regulations to be examined swiftly to see that they adequately cover potentially dangerous household products bought for use in the home. If they do not do so to my satisfaction, I shall...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hazardous Products (Labelling) (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: If the hon. Gentleman would like to table a question about furniture regulations I should be pleased to answer it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hazardous Products (Labelling) (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: My hon. Friend was extremely prescient to have noted my satisfaction about that matter. He will have noted that I have had to wait since 1972 for that satisfaction but I reassure him that any regulations will apply to all goods sold in shops for use in the home.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Hazardous Products (Labelling) (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. and learned Gentleman raises an important point to which we have given consideration, but as he will recall—I know his memory is good—the proposals in the EEC directive are that symbols should be used which can be learned by children and which will adequately warn parents. One of the main problems with household products is that most people think that they are safe and keep them...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Standards (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: My Department maintains regular close contact with the British Standards institution on all aspects of standards making. We and the Institution are fully aware of the importance of international harmonisation of standards and actively support appropriate measures promoting this.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Standards (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I can reassure my hon. Friend that the BSI and DIN—the West Germany equivalent—are strong supporters of international standards work. We and the institution believe that the best way to achieve harmonisation between British and German standards and others throughout the world is through adopting agreed international standards, thus offering the benefits of even wider markets to everyone....

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Standards (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: We are doing what my hon. Friend has asked, but it would be over-optimistic to expect any early results from it. I shall, however, pay particular attention to what he has said, and see that careful note is taken of it in any negotiations that may yet ensue.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: British Standards (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am not sure what the hon. Gentleman means by "evidence". National standards pertain in each case. In other words, goods sold in this country must comply with British standards. Similarly, in Germany, DIN standards apply. Standards apply individually. The whole benefit of international standards is to permit freer trade and a wider choice for consumers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Motorway Service Stations (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Neither my right hon. Friend nor the Director General of Fair Trading has any plans to refer trading practices on motorway service areas to the Monopolies and Mergers Commission at present. A number of matters relating to competition and consumer protection are being discussed between my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport and the operators, and, naturally, I too am keeping...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Motorway Service Stations (13 Ebr 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am unable to disguise my sympathy with the remarks of my hon. Friend. It is true that many motorists find the service provided by motorway service areas unsatisfactory and expensive. At the same time, it should be noted that some areas have high standards and are deservedly popular. These standards should not be the exception; they should be the rule. However, I should point out that the...
