Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Will my right hon. Friend remind the House that the 1992 legislation does not come into force until 31 December 1992 and that the same is true of the 1986 Single European Act? Will he confirm to the House, the country and the international community that he will then be in his second term as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Africa (20 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the carefully targeted aid that she has given to Zambia in recent years. It has led to the election of President Chiluba, leader of the country's multi-party democracy movement. Does my right hon. Friend believe that, as a result, multi-party democracy will be adopted in Kenya at an early opportunity?

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Kurdish People (18 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I thank my right hon. Friend from the bottom of my heart, on behalf of those whom I have seen in southern Iran who are refugees from Saddam Hussein's brutality against the Shia people. I thank her even more warmly for the help that she gave, in the form of food and clothing, to people who fled into the marshes. Their plight is desperate. I saw them recently in the marshes of southern Iraq and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Kurdish People (18 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Tomorrow, the findings will be released of the interim report from Mr. Max van der Stoel, the special United Nations rapporteur on human rights in Iraq, who will present the report to the United Nations third committee. Will my right hon. Friend endorse those findings and make every effort to endorse the resolution, proposed by Belgium, which Mr. van der Stoel will present?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State said yesterday that, despite the Opposition's fears and unyielding opposition to the proposed council tax, they managed to muster only 20 Members for the debate. I see that that number has fallen still further today—[Interruption.] Despite the laughter, only 14 or 15 Opposition Members are able to be here at this early hour for what will be a...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I do not blame the hon. Gentleman for not listening to some of my statements on the community charge, but I pointed out at the time——

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I pointed out at the time and in the way I voted—and I say again now—that it is the country's perception that a house provides a notion of ability to pay, even if it is not a truly accurate assumption. We all know, for instance, that under this Conservative Government wealth has been created more readily, so people have had more money to spend, and they do not spend it just on where...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: She said that there was "no question" but that they would replace the council tax with their rates system. On 17 October another Opposition spokesman said that Labour would "amend the council tax" and scrap the 1973 rates stepping stone. A third Opposition spokesman said that Labour would … repeal it in almost all circumstances", but might pick up the council tax valuation register. I...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill (12 Tach 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I wholly agree with my west country colleague. We see things sanely and sensibly there. Both Opposition parties are pledged only to help bureaucracy. In the case of the Liberal Democrats, that is their favourite repository of power—the local council officials. As a result of the Labour party proposals, new armies of snoopers would arise. If Labour Members fail to see the truth of that,...

Social Security Benefits (Uprating) (21 Hyd 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is not pensioners who are bitterly disappointed by his announcement today, but the Labour party? Its disappointment stems from the magnificence of the increase and the skill in deployment with which he has targeted it on the most needy members of our society. Does he find it especially shameful that the Opposition spokesmen cannot even honestly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Sunday Trading (17 Aws 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I am delighted to hear the Minister say that there are some sensitivities in Scotland on Sunday trading. As I have significant Scottish blood stretching back over 980 years, I am glad to have the opportunity to express the views of people in western Scotland. Does the Minister agree that the success of Sunday trading in areas of Scotland where people want it is due to the exceptional economic...

Local Government Finance (England) (23 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I offer my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State my warm congratulations on a tight settlement, which is none the less almost double the rate of next year's projected inflation level. Is not the mealy-mouthed and mean-minded response of Her Majesty's Opposition due to the fact that they cannot come up with anything which offers public sector organisations the ability both to control their...

Clause 28: Collection of Child Support Maintenance (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I beg to move amendment No. 102, in page 20, line 8 at end add— '(4) The Secretary of State shall make regulations providing for the division of maintenance payments between the person with care and the Secretary of State in circumstances where the amount of family credit or any another benefit of prescribed kind paid to the person with the care of the child or children has been calculated...

Clause 28: Collection of Child Support Maintenance (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I trust that, if the amendment did mean that, the Secretary of State would give his half back. As I have said, this is a probing amendment. My hon. Friend the Minister responded swiftly to my request for a meeting, and we shall discuss the amendment then. That is why I did not go into much detail. I hope that we shall come up with a solution, and I am grateful to my hon. Friend for offering...

Clause 28: Collection of Child Support Maintenance (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I am grateful for those reassurances. I am also grateful to the Minister for allowing me an appointment with him. I warn him that I shall arrive with three different formulae in an attempt to deal with this difficult problem. I am sure that one, if not all, will meet with his approval, and that he will be longing to implement all three at once. Let me be serious for a moment about this very...

New Clause 8: Child Support Inspectors (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I have listened with care to the Minister's speech and I am grateful to him for his thoughtful response. He thinks deeply about the points that we put to him and takes his responsibilities seriously. Nevertheless, I am not sure that the purpose of the new clause has been fully understood. The hon. Member for Makerfield (Mr. McCartney) referred to local government audits. It was an...

Clause 8: Role of the Courts with Respect to Maintenance for Children (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Do the words "mental disorder" cover mental handicap and psychiatric concerns? Is it a portmanteau phrase covering both? I should hate to see a mentally handicapped child not specifically identified in the Bill

Clause 8: Role of the Courts with Respect to Maintenance for Children (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: Like other members of the Committee that considered this Bill, I have received letters from Barnardos and other organisations that look after handicapped children and have done so for 100 years or more. I have read the letters carefully and studied the points made. Like other hon. Members, I was concerned that somehow the particular needs of disabled children had not been identified clearly...

New Clause 8: Child Support Inspectors (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause is in three parts. First, it proposes that Her Majesty appoint child support inspectors to play a careful monitoring role over the Child Support Agency as it carries out its important tasks. Secondly, the new clause suggests that the child support inspectors should present an annual report to the Secretary of State, giving...

New Clause 8: Child Support Inspectors (18 Gor 1991)

Miss Emma Nicholson: It is not my contention that the House should grill specialists and professionals. I do not believe that Parliament is the appropriate mechanism by which to manage the affairs of outside agencies, departments or elected services. The Government should be at arms length from practical management. All I am seeking is that a report from an external monitoring agency should be put before the...
