Petitions: Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Warnock Report) (23 Nov 1984)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman refers to Galileo, but in that instance it did not matter whether he was right. Indulging in the act of creation matters very much indeed.

The Economy (13 Nov 1984)

Bill Cash: The economy will be judged not by what we say about it but by its performance. The words "output" and "productivity" do not merely mean producing things, nor just a return on capital or labour. They contain elements of all those but require the added yardstick of efficiency and effectiveness. In addition, innovation, competition, marketing, advertising, production engineering, quality control...

Opposition Day: Government Policy (31 Jul 1984)

Bill Cash: I shall be brief as time marches on. Since 1945 our economy, in common with that of many other countries, has undergone deep-seated change. What the Labour Government thought was desirable in the years immediately following the second world war has proved to be increasingly irrelevant to the requirements of running a country in the latter part of the 20th century. One need look only at the...

Opposition Day: Government Policy (31 Jul 1984)

Bill Cash: For this year alone the estimated loss to the economy is about £1·65 billion. The miners' blackmail cannot be allowed to succeed when so many of the lower paid need more of our national resources. The strike is not only damaging to the economy, but selfish and unreasonable. We will not and must not give in. The motion suggests that the Government's economic, industrial and...

New Clause: Suspension of Elections and Extension of Terms of Office (30 Jul 1984)

Bill Cash: The reason why it is important that we insist upon a ballot for the miners and the reason why this case has occurred vis-a-vis the local authoritites is that the miners and the lcoal authorities have used their powers irresponsibly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Grievous Bodily Harm (Charges) (30 Jul 1984)

Bill Cash: Can my right hon. and learned Friend confirm that there are a number of cases before magistrates' courts that are being unnecessarily held up? Will he be good enough to take such action as is necessary to speed things up?

Opposition Day: The Rich and the Poor (28 Jun 1984)

Bill Cash: Is it not true that this year 850,000 people have been taken out of tax? Should not my hon. Friend refer to that fact, not just to his recommendations for the next few years? Should he not refer also to what has been done in the Budget?

Business of the House (28 Jun 1984)

Bill Cash: When will the House have an opportunity to debate the British Telecom licence which we understand was recently laid before the House?

Opposition Day: Coal Industry Dispute (7 Jun 1984)

Bill Cash: It is with a sense of awe of this great Parliament and its history that I make my maiden speech in this debate. I shall try, as far as possible, to be non-controversial. I should like first to congratulate the hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Mrs. Clwyd) on her excellent maiden speech. It had not been my original intention first to address the House until some time after my election, but the...
