Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Relief for Donations Under Payroll Deduction Scheme (6 May 1986)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman may be interested to know that a charity is starting up in my constituency because a school that was closed by the Labour county council needs to continue for the sake of children who are suffering from child abuse——

Business of the House (1 May 1986)

Bill Cash: In view of the importance to our commercial success of matters relating to copyright and intellectual property, will my right hon. Friend consider arranging a debate on the White Paper on that matter?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Enterprise Ulster (1 May 1986)

Bill Cash: asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if, following the recent review, he will make a statement on the longer-term future of Enterprise Ulster.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Enterprise Ulster (1 May 1986)

Bill Cash: Will the improvements in cost-effectiveness expected of Enterprise Ulster have any effect on its ability to undertake major projects in the future?

Clause 16: Interpretation (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: I wish to endorse most of my hon. Friends' comments. Together we have managed consistently to fight the battle against the peace convoy over a period of months, since the peace convoy came to our respective constituencies. I would like to thank the Home Secretary and the Minister for the courtesy and time they have given to us on a number of occasions and the good advice they have been able...

Clause 14: Imposing Conditions on Public Assemblies (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: There seems to be something slightly wrong with the hon. and learned Gentleman's argument. All right hon. and hon. Members would subscribe to the idea of peaceful assembly, but clause 14 deals with a completely different situation where a senior police officer reasonably believes that it may result in serious public disorder, et cetera. That is the precise opposite of the hon. and learned...

Clause 14: Imposing Conditions on Public Assemblies (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: I intervene briefly only to say that the hon. and learned Gentleman may remember that Welshpool is where Llewelyn died.

Clause 12: Imposing Conditions on Public Processions (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: I am advised, by the tone of your voice in calling me, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to speak very briefly. I hope to do so, as I have indeed done so far in this debate, as hon. Members who have been present throughout will testify. My concern is with a constituency matter, namely the peace convoy which has been descending on my constituency and its vicinity from time to time. It has also moved from...

Clause 1: Riot (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: I believe, as I have done for a long time, that, to deal with violence during a riot, we need a provision analogous to section 24 of the Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978, which deals with dispersal when requested by a member of the Royal Ulster Constabulary whose rank is not below that of chief inspector. However, in this context I state specifically that I would not expect...

Clause 7: Procedure: Miscellaneous (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I do not know whether hon. Members have noticed that there is a curious smell in the Chamber which seems to be associated with food that has somehow wafted through the air-conditioning system. Can that be looked into, because if it persists it will be most unpleasant?

New Clause 3: Abuse of Union Flags (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: I share many of the sentiments expressed on both sides of the House about this provision. I await with interest what the Minister has to say on the subject. As my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Burton (Mr. Lawrence) said, there is no doubt that no flag should be used to incite racial hatred of any description. I would consider voting for the new clause in a Division if what the...

New Clause 3: Abuse of Union Flags (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: My hon. and learned Friend may care to draw the Minister's attention to the Flags and Emblems (Display) Act (Northern Ireland) 1954, which has been a source of considerable controversy. Does he recall that serious questions arise in relation to that Act, which may have implications in this context for the rest of the United Kingdom?

New Clause 1: Offences of Harassment, Alarm or Distress (30 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: Having had experience of a peace convoy and its activities in and around my constituency in Stafford, where a considerable amount of alarm was caused to the local community and to individuals, I strongly welcome this amendment, which has been given careful consideration by the Government. I am sure that the chief constable of Staffordshire, who has helped to work out proposals which would...

Clause 2: Special Test of Obscenity in Relation to Persons Under the Age of I8 (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman had a simple argument to put. Now that he has put it, will he be good enough to allow us to proceed with the rest of the Bill?

Clause 1: Act to Apply to Television and Sound Broadcasting (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. Gentleman recall the recent court case in which the Director General of the BBC, Mr. Bill Whitney and Mr. Shaw, who is now with the Independent Televison Contractors Association, were involved? They made it clear that it was extremely difficult for the line of command to which the hon. Gentleman is referring to produce the results that he would like to see the guidelines...

Clause 1: Act to Apply to Television and Sound Broadcasting (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: In a letter in The Times today, which I think has been quoted, Lord Goodman says that at the end of the day it is up to the people who are running the programmes to exercise a degree of social responsibility and that that is the way to solve the problem. That is really what the hon. Gentleman is saying. The video working party, in its report on violence on television, says that drug use...

Clause 1: Act to Apply to Television and Sound Broadcasting (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: In the video working party's report, which came out in 1983, there was a specific reference to the problem of violence on television. It stated clearly that on grounds of social responsibility, broadcast television has also avoided giving the details of drug use". The programme "East Enders" is a good example of the broadcasting authorities ignoring their social responsibility despite...

Clause 1: Act to Apply to Television and Sound Broadcasting (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: The hon. Gentleman is suggesting that "obscenity" does not include violence. There have been court cases since 1982 in which it has been stated that violence is included in obscenity. That is the answer to the hon. Gentleman's question.

Clause 1: Act to Apply to Television and Sound Broadcasting (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is the hon. Gentleman suggesting that the amendments that have been moved and accepted and that now form part of this Bill might in some respects have been regarded as beyond the scope of the original Bill?

Clause 1: Act to Apply to Television and Sound Broadcasting (25 Apr 1986)

Bill Cash: Will the hon. Gentleman accept that in a programme I watched the other day a representative from MIND strongly condemned that particular incident because of the very facts that my hon. Friend the Member for Davyhulme (Mr. Churchill) has mentioned. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will support MIND in that particular instance.
