Members' Salaries ( 3 Tach 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: With respect, that is merely the same argument turned round and addressed another way. Those of us who are or have been employers outside the House of Commons know that it would be nonsense to look at a group of employees and say that one must be more sensitive to a particular person's pay rise because of their background or family responsibilities. It is an inappropriate way in which to...

Members' Salaries ( 3 Tach 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: No. Another much stronger point was suggested, perhaps also by the hon. Member for Derby, South (Mrs. Beckett)—that there is an over-large, if I may make a judgment in using that word, financial burden on Members of Parliament whose constituency pressures are exceptionally large for a variety of reasons. They may find that they have to disburse part of their salary to fulfil their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Human Rights ( 3 Tach 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: When my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary meets the Belgian Foreign Minister, will he draw to his attention the profoundly important statement made by Prince Charles in Oxford last week in which he described the policy of Saddam Hussein towards the marshlands as "obscene lies"? May I congratulate the Minister on his statement contained in the film that was shown last week and urge him...

Priests (Ordination of Women) (29 Hyd 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I should like to thank the Whip who is on duty and to mention to him the remarkable speeches that we have had on a one-line Whip on a matter that affects us all most profoundly. Generally, such matters tend to be concerned with life and death, and I would put this great spiritual debate in that context. There have been some remarkable speeches, several of which I profoundly disagree with. I...

Priests (Ordination of Women) (29 Hyd 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: My hon. Friend has had her turn and I know that time is short, so I shall not give way for the moment. I suggest that, although the question of the authority of this House to debate such matters has been explored, the proposition that all of us should debate it with honour and propriety has not been properly explored. One of the greatest women to live in the last century wrote: I would have...

Social Policy Protocol (Confidence Motion) (23 Gor 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I worked on the social charter in Brussels on behalf of the House as a member of the Select Committee on Employment. Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that significant social benefits on health and safety flow from the Single European Act, which many other EC national states, such as Greece, have not implemented? Does not he believe, in all honesty, that it would be better...

Petitions: Unesco ( 7 Gor 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: This is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak on the subject of UNESCO. I pay tribute to the many colleagues who have put the case for the United Kingdom rejoining UNESCO since we left it in 1985. I first pay tribute to the most eminent of those colleagues, my right hon. Friend the Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Sir E. Heath), who has so often said that the United Kingdom...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Overseas Assistance) Bill: Power to Provide Advice and Assistance ( 2 Gor 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate and to support my hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Mr. Lester). The Bill is one of the most worth while that I have heard debated on a Friday for a long time. I am happy to have the chance to support it. I pay tribute to the Bill's promoter in the other place, Baroness Flather, who suffered a personal tragedy and so had to defer...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Overseas Assistance) Bill: Power to Provide Advice and Assistance ( 2 Gor 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Perhaps I should refer my hon. Friend to the comments of Baroness Flather when she moved the amendments that we are discussing. She explained to Lord Graham that the amendments would strengthen the process of consultation and she said: By putting it on the face of the Bill the Government want to flag the consultation process and make sure that the final outcome is achieved in fullest...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Overseas Assistance) Bill: Power to Provide Advice and Assistance ( 2 Gor 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I welcome that explanation from my hon. Friend. I want to expand, from personal experience, on points made by my hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe and those by my hon. Friend the Member for Fulham (Mr. Carrington) about consultation being hampering and not helpful. I had the honour to be the official observer from this House in the multi-party elections in Zambia. The former high...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Overseas Assistance) Bill: Power to Provide Advice and Assistance ( 2 Gor 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Perhaps I can complete that point within your terms of reference, Mr. Deputy Speaker. The guidance required under the amendments in respect of local authority work internationally is of critical importance in terms of foreign policy. How can local authorities be expected to know the full details of the overwhelming majority against the life President and the way in which the elections will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Meh 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: During his busy day, has the Prime Minister had the opportunity to read the letter from the hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) in TheLondon Literary Review, in which he gives inaccurate medical information on the state of child health in Iraq? Will the Prime Minister remind the hon. Gentleman that United Nations Security Council resolutions 706 and 712 of August and September 1991...

Orders of the Day — Trident Refit (Scottish Economy) (24 Meh 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for giving me a few moments in this valuable Adjournment debate. I claim a right to two or three minutes on behalf of my constituents who provide perhaps 15 per cent. of the work force of Devonport dockyard. May I say how wonderful it is that we have won the contract on merit. The quality of the work in Devon is superb and, as my hon. Friend the Member for...

Science, Engineering and Technology (26 Mai 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: As the parliamentary member of the Medical Research Council, I welcome the White Paper. My right hon. Friend was good enough to meet a delegation, including myself, from the MRC. I thank him warmly for recognising that the chairmanship and managerial structure of the council are so good that it should be identified for replication. I thank him also for recognising that the concordat between...

Prayers: Exporters (Government Support) (21 Mai 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I am pleased to be here on a Friday. That is an unusual statement to make for an hon. Member who represents a far-flung constituency. I was anxious to be here because of the nature of the debate and because it reflects on my constituency, as it does on most parts of the United Kingdom, for without exports many of the businesses in the area which I represent could not survive. In the modern...

Prayers: Exporters (Government Support) (21 Mai 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I thank my hon. Friend for his perceptive comments. He mentioned the export of intellectual property. I am sure that my hon. Friends, especially the Minister, are well aware that the European Community sees the information market as being of equal value and equal importance to the physical market. Following the introduction of the Single European Act, the Brussels bureaucrats, for whom I have...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill: Donations from Companies and Individuals (12 Mai 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: My hon. Friend the Member for Stratford-on-Avon (Mr. Howarth) made a splendid, wide-ranging speech about the impact of charities on people who give, on people who help and on people who receive help. That veritable tour de force by the chairman of the all-party group on charities was a wonderful speech to listen to and I am grateful to be allowed to follow it, although I shall employ a...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill: Donations from Companies and Individuals (12 Mai 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: It is kind and generous of the hon. Lady to give way to me twice—I appreciate it. I suggest that the figures which she has quoted with compassion and thoughtfulness reflect the top 400 charities. The figures for those charities are published by the Charities Aid Foundation. There are 185,000 charities in the United Kingdom and, therefore, the picture of charities that has been put forward...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill: Donations from Companies and Individuals (12 Mai 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Is the hon. Lady misleading herself and, inadvertently, the Committee by not recognising the way in which funding from charities has been used over the years? With the readers of Woman's Own, I raised money for the bone marrow transplant unit at the Westminster children's hospital. That money came from individual, personal donations. The national health service union at the time wanted to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Sewage Treatment (28 Ebr 1993)

Miss Emma Nicholson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what percentage of sewage treatment works failed their consent standards in 1986; and what is the equivalent figure now.
