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?

Industry Year 1986 (13 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: I must ask the hon. Gentleman to desist from his exaggerated claims for proportional representation and to bear in mind that political judgments and economic solutions lead to improvements in industrial success. I welcome this debate for that reason. It provides an opportunity for these questions to be considered sensibly. The right hon. Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Dr. Owen) showed the...

Severn Bridge Tolls (Judgment) (13 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it comes ill from Labour Members to criticise the Government in relation to the matter that has been referred to the High Court when they, when in Government, were responsible for some of the classic cases —for example, the Tameside case, the Laker Airways case and the Congreve television licence case. These things do happen from time to time and it...

Industry Year 1986 (13 Dec 1985)

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Trespass (5 Dec 1985)

Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend agree that the incredible damage caused, costing Staffordshire ratepayers about £80,000, when a peace convoy recently invaded common and open spaces in that part of the world should be stopped, and that the criminal law is a way of dealing with such problems? An essential feature of open space and common land law is that it should be available to all people equally....

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Spanish and Portuguese Accession) Bill [Lords] (4 Dec 1985)

Foreign Affairs Council (28 Nov 1985)

Bill Cash: Will my right hon. and learned Friend assure me about a matter that I raised with him last week, when he said that he had no recollection about possible negotiations affecting article 236 of the Treaty of Rome? I refer to proposed increases in the powers of the European Parliament vis-à-vis the Council, the Commission and the Parliament which could enhance the powers of the Parliament at...

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Irish Agreement (27 Nov 1985)

Bill Cash: The Irish question, which has so pervaded British and Irish politics for centuries, has become the Irish riddle. Often presented in theoretical constitutional terms, the issue has, at its centre of gravity, become primarily practical and political—an attempt, for the right reason, to protect minorities from administrative, economic and religious discrimination and, to ensure the...

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Irish Agreement (27 Nov 1985)

Bill Cash: I believe that if the threat of the by-elections is realised, we face great insecurity—

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Irish Agreement (27 Nov 1985)

Bill Cash: I believe that the agreement supports a real possibility for peace and stability in Northern Ireland. Surely it would be counter-productive to renounce by resignation the protection inherent for the people of Ulster, of whatever political or religious persuasion, by virtue of membership of this House. To maintain the authority of Parliament, it is necessary to maintain unity, which is the...

Anglo-Irish Agreement (26 Nov 1985)

Bill Cash: Is the hon. Gentleman speaking for himself or his party?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Milk Quotas (21 Nov 1985)

Bill Presented: European Community Budgets (14 Nov 1985)

Bill Presented: European Community Budgets (14 Nov 1985)

Bill Cash: Perhaps I may take my hon. Friend's argument a little further. Does he agree that the current proposals of the Commission about the increase in the powers of the European Parliament should be carried to the point at which the consent of the European Parliament, in conjunction with the Commission and the Council of Ministers, is in line with the recent document placed before the Council of...
