Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (11 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: I wish to make one simple point. In the House we are primarily concerned with the voting of money and the redress of grievance. In both cases, one needs to participate in order to be able to appropriate. It is with great interest that I see the right hon. Member for South Down (Mr. Powell) in the Chamber. I deeply regret the fact that he is not accompanied by his colleagues. There is an...

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (11 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: I have advocated such a Select Committee and I am most interested to hear that the right hon. Gentleman appears to be suggesting one himself as a mechanism for ensuring that there is proper discussion in the House where all who have the right to be consulted and can consult one another can sit around a table, discuss matters and call for papers and witnesses.

Northern Ireland (Local Government) (11 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: I am listening to the hon. Gentleman with great interest. Will he explain whether the refusal to communicate with him is a deliberate act and, if so, who is responsible for it, as I find what he is saying extremely disturbing?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: asked the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 11 March.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the Left-wing councillors in Lambeth and Liverpool deserve what they are getting at the moment for their wilful misconduct towards their ratepayers? Does my right hon. Friend also agree that to see the Leader of the Opposition trying to get off this hook is a pathetic sight? Will she confirm that this Government will maintain the laws on surcharge and...

European Community (5 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: Paragraph 4.28, page 44 of the Official Journal of the European Communities says: The main thing the Court noted was a certain indifference on the part of the Member States to the financial interests of the Community and a more or less general lack of cooperation in a number of areas". I should like to be sure that when it comes to investigating such matters, Britain will not fall into the...

European Community (5 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: I find debates of this kind somewhat disappointing, because so few hon. Members attend them, yet this debate concerns a matter of great importance to our constituents. It has oscillated frequently between the Euro-fanatics and the Euro-haters. The Government's position is made more difficult by this polarisation. Legislative and harmonisation programmes and the problems of agriculture,...

European Community (5 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: I take it that the hon. Gentleman is speaking on behalf of his party. Does the leader of the SDP agree with him on majority voting in all material respects?

European Community (5 Mar 1986)

Bill Cash: Will the hon. Gentleman answer my question? He will appreciate that this is central to the development of the European Parliament and the Community in the context of the aspirations of the alliance in a couple of years time. Therefore, it is important for the nation to know where the alliance stands on this very important question.

Procedure (27 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the result of that, as happened recently on the Telecommunications Bill, is that we end up without the legislation being properly considered? As a result of that, it all goes through without consideration until it reaches the Upper House.

British Leyland (17 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we cannot continue to kid ourselves all the time, and that it is about time that the management and work force of BL reached the conclusion that they have to produce the goods in competition with Japan and other countries? If they reach that conclusion, perhaps they will produce quality goods that can compete fairly in world markets.

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: The Bill should be rejected by the House. When we get down to it, we are dealing with the rule of law and respect for the law. The Bill proposes to take away the real teeth in the Local Government Finance Act 1982 and the Local Government Act 1985, because they say that after a series of protracted negotiations, when advice has been tendered and people have deliberately decided that they will...

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman is confused about the difference between the threat to an unlawful act and the threat to a policy which councillors would like to pursue but which may not be authorised by law. That is where the problem lies. I do not deny for a minute that there are serious problems in Greater London and Liverpool. They should be sorted out. People should have a reasonable amount of money...

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: The short answer is that we do not know.

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: I believe that the pressures building up would have ensured that women received the vote, notwithstanding their activities.

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: I am sure that you will understand, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that I was merely responding to an intervention that was a little beyond the terms of the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: I unreservedly withdraw my remarks in so far as they imply any questioning of your judgment, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am glad that the hon. Member for Walton and the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn) support the motion of trying to change the law rather than that of breaking the law. That is important, because some Labour Members have implied that they are more interested in...

Orders of the Day — Surcharge and Disqualification of Councillors (Abolition) Bill (14 Feb 1986)

Bill Cash: My hon. Friend is right. I have no doubt that during my speech I shall refer to that. Some interesting statements have arisen in the courts. Other interesting statements have been made by the auditor in Liverpool which clearly illustrate the great care taken at all times. I hope to quote the remarks of Mr. Stamford on that matter. Indeed, with the indulgence of the House, I intend to refer...
