Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend recall that in a publication entitled "The Portrayal of Violence in Television Programmes", published by the BBC in 1983, the matter of desensitisation was examined?

The...

Opposition Day: Schools (Government Policies) (23 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that since 1979 there has been a reduction of 1 million pupils in schools, and that within the next few years there will be a further reduction of 750,000, yet in real terms there is a reduction of only 0·2 per cent. in resources?

Opposition Day: Westland plc (15 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: Following the points made by the right hon. Member for Cardiff, South and Penarth (Mr. Callaghan), does my hon.

Orders of the Day — Financial Services Bill (14 Jan 1986)

Bill Cash: I hope that my hon. Friend will also accept that clause 43 empowers the Secretary of State to remove Lloyd's exemption, so that if, after the inquiry he has now announced, he was not satisfied, he would be able to take the exemption away from Lloyd's anyway.

Orders of the Day — Building Societies Bill (19 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: This is, in a sense, a rather nostalgic occasion for me. My family have had much to do with the building society movement in the past century. The Abbey National building society was founded by my great-grandfather, William Cash, and his cousin, John Bright. But we now have to move into the 20th century. I welcome the Bill. It provides an opportunity, in an intelligent and good framework, to...

Juries (Practice for Challenge) (18 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: One of the investigators in the Cyprus spy trial is a constituent of mine. He came to see me recently, and I was very disquietened by what he said.

I have great sympathy with what was said by my hon. Friends the Members for...

City of London (Fraud) (18 Dec 1985)

City of London (Fraud) (18 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman spoke about hybridity. Would that not in itself be a good reason for not including Lloyd's in the Bill? If he had any reasons for wanting another Bill to deal with Lloyd's, procedures are available to deal with those questions. He has given the answer to the problem.

Industry Year 1986 (13 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: Will the right hon. Gentleman accept that he is talking about something which has developed over a long period, in respect of which the Labour party, when in Government, bears considerable responsibility?
