Orders of the Day — Yorkshire Water Authority Bill (By Order): Liability for Defective Products (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: As my hon. Friend says, the directive is introduced under article 100, which deals with the harmonisation and approximation of laws, as set out in the title to the debate. I am puzzled that harmonisation under article 100, which requires unanimity, could be changed only if at a subsequent date the voting arrangements in the treaty were amended. What is the point of introducing a provision...

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire Water Authority Bill (By Order): Liability for Defective Products (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I remind the right hon. Gentleman that awards made by judges recently have been increasing significantly. There is something slightly unreal with the American analogy. There is a tendency for a significant increase in the amounts that are being paid out by our courts. This is a factor that will have to be taken into account in future.

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire Water Authority Bill (By Order): Liability for Defective Products (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: "Lifting the Burden" has just been published and contains a section relating to European regulations. Does my hon. Friend think that this subject ought to be referred back for further consideration?

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire Water Authority Bill (By Order): Liability for Defective Products (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I should point out that I have on a number of occasions expressed my disquiet at some aspects of the Dooge report and also at too rapid a movement to majority voting. I have gone even further and said that I have grave reservations about it.

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire Water Authority Bill (By Order): Liability for Defective Products (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I refer my hon. Friend the Member for Southend, East (Mr. Taylor) to the explanatory memorandum that is attached to the amendment to the proposal which sets out the reasons why it appears to be justified to exclude primary agricultural products. It says: This is by way of contrast to agricultural products industrially produced because strict liability for defects in such products which have...

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire Water Authority Bill (By Order): Liability for Defective Products (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: As a recently appointed member of the Select Committee on European Legislation, I am concerned that this directive has been around for many years. The information I have received is that the Select Committee called for a debate. I was not a member of the Committee at the time that happened. In 1980, this subject first obtained in scientific journals the sort of coverage it deserved. Since...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Sudan (22 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: Will the Crown Agents be able to give some assistance in alleviating the rail problems in Sudan in the way in which they have been able to give such assistance over the past 100 years?

Schedule 9: 'Restriction on preparation of papers for probate etc. (17 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I am glad to have taken part in the proceedings, and I thank my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General for the courtesy that he has shown throughout. I wish the Bill well.

New Clause 2: Restrictions on Conflicts of Interest in Conveyancing (17 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: My right hon. and learned Friend mentioned consumer protection, but he did not mention competence. In the context of estate agents providing conveyancing services at present practised by solicitors, does he agree that competence is extremely important, and that it is difficult to ensure that an estate agent will be competent to provide such legal services?

New Clause 3: Prevention of Anti-Competitive Practices and Monopoly Situations. (17 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I beg to move, That the clause he read a Second time. I am deeply worried that we may be moving towards concentrating economic power in the hands of lending institutions. The new clause relates to part II of the Bill, which to a certain extent anticipates the building societies legislation that we expect next year. To prevent anticompetitive practices and monopolies or their development in...

New Clause 3: Prevention of Anti-Competitive Practices and Monopoly Situations. (17 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I am grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend for the clarity of his reply. I am glad to note the assurance that he has given. Therefore, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (2 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: rose——

European Council (Milan) (2 Jul 1985)

Bill Cash: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on her pragmatic and balanced approach to the Milan conference. Lest the voters of Brecon and Radnor have not taken note of it, does she accept that the alliance is indeed in significant disarray over the use of the veto in Europe in that the right hon. Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Dr. Owen) insists upon the use of the veto even to the point of...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Finance) Bill (25 Jun 1985)

Bill Cash: Will the hon. Gentleman explain how he squares what he has just been saying with the statement made recently by the right hon. Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Dr. Owen), when he asked my right hon. and learned Friend the Foreign Secretary to assure the House that we would continue to use the veto in all circumstances?

Small Firms (21 Jun 1985)

Bill Cash: I welcome the debate on small firms and propose to speak briefly and mainly on attitudes, objectives and reasons and to give examples of and make comparisons with small firms in Britain and abroad. Until the Conservative party won the general election in 1979, Britain had lost the will and the feel for enterprise. We had lost the opportunity to develop the ethos of enterprise which lies at...

Small Firms (21 Jun 1985)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, under the community programme and the youth training scheme, the same sort of opportunities are open to people to be employed as are available through the enterprise boards, at an amount less than that paid to those on the dole? Does he not want to encourage that?

Small Firms (21 Jun 1985)

Bill Cash: Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that a serious problem arose in the late 1940s under the Labour Government—I do not criticise them for this—in what the Town and Country Planning Acts tended to stifle and over-regulate? Should we not be seriously considering ways and means of enabling the areas to which the right hon. Gentleman referred to develop domestically based jobs...

Small Firms (21 Jun 1985)

Bill Cash: It is important to maintain proper and reasonably balanced levels of health and safety standards, but will the right hon. Gentleman accept that the examples that he has given fall within a period when health and safety legislation has been in force? Therefore, a significant number of the accidents to which he referred, regrettable as they are, may have occurred in circumstances which were...

European Community (20 Jun 1985)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman referred to alliance policy. He may recall that not long ago the right hon. Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Dr. Owen), referring to the use of the veto, urged the Prime Minister to give an assurance that in no circumstances would the Government ever get into a position in which they failed to use it when to do so was necessary. Against that background, how does the hon....
