Personal Statement (9 May 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: I was absolutely delighted, as I am sure was the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn), by the glowing tribute that the Prime Minister paid to us at the beginning of his remarks. It was inspired, no doubt, by the first half of the remarks of my right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition—the second half was not quite in the same vein. I should like to thank you very much, Mr....

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: I am glad to have the opportunity to say a few words. I hope that I may be forgiven if, instead of dealing only with the present, I look back into the past a little. However, I cannot refrain from making one remark about the present. I was interested in the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for North-East Cambridgeshire (Mr. Moss), especially in his statement that his colleagues...

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: Well, I can return to earlier matters, not because I have no proposals to make but because so much of what happened in the past has immensely damaged the attitude towards this country and the Community. I have a clear example of that. An article under the headline, "How Heath betrayed our fishermen" says: One of the murkiest episodes in the history of Britain's involvement with the European...

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: No, I am sorry, but I do not have time. Christopher Booker cannot quote anything that I said to back up his argument.

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: No, I am sorry, but I do not have time. Why would I have done what Christopher Booker suggests? I was born by the sea; I lived by the sea for 60 years; I swam in the sea; and I fished locally. One year, I won the local fishing championship. I fished for six hours, between 10 and 4 o'clock, and caught 146 lb 12 oz of the best cod. I do not know how many Prime Ministers can say they did that,...

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: No, I am short of time. It is clear from the figures how successful that policy was. In 1970, there were 21,443 fishermen. In 1975, there were 22,134. By 1985, there were 22,224. That proves that what we did was right. It produced results. There can be no justifiable criticism of that. I am prepared to take responsibility for everything I did and the 10 years of fishing that we got, but I...

Mr Edward Heath: I shall give the hon. Gentleman one chance.

Points of Order: Fisheries (25 Jan 2001)

Mr Edward Heath: Some people in Iceland might believe that we were tough, but we did not think so. I gave the Prime Minister of Iceland a good dinner, but he would not give me everything I wanted, so we had to put in the Navy. We finally reached an agreement and, fortunately, we did not lose much. In the later period, deep-sea fishermen had lost out and the inshore fishermen saw their chance. They realised...
