Nicholas Soames: Only in photographs.
Nicholas Soames: I am sure that my hon. Friend's views on planning are correct but, bearing in mind the considerable work and effort that he and his colleagues have put into researching this proposition, does he believe that this is a decent, honourable and good place for bereaved people to bring their dead to cremate them? It is in the middle of a busy road near a crowded street.
Nicholas Soames: It has revoked it.
Nicholas Soames: I am grateful to the hon. and learned Gentleman for giving way. I hope that he will not sigh about it, as I am on his side. The Select Committee report said: The first amendments required by the Committee were to the effect that no cremation operation is to be carried out before a garden of rememberance, that is a place for strewing of ashes, has been acquired by Ginns and Gutteridge. This...
Nicholas Soames: Perhaps I could help the hon. and learned Gentleman with a possible solution to this problem. If Ginns and Gutteridge, which, I gather, represents that it will be able to buy this churchyard even though the bishop, apparently, is not in favour of it, could perhaps buy a field in Harborough and use that instead, local honour would be satisfied all round. How would the hon. and learned...
Nicholas Soames: They would be underdone.
Nicholas Soames: Medium rare.
Nicholas Soames: Some hon. Members may have received a briefing letter from Messrs. Ginns and Gutteridge—I gather that it was sent out in the middle of February—in which it was clearly implied that permission for this churchyard had already been given. It was implicit in the statement that it would probably be the churchyard of All Saints. Surely the hon. and learned Gentleman should seek to make...
Nicholas Soames: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that his arguments go a little wide of the present arrangements? How would he propose that the rules should be altered within the context——
Nicholas Soames: Get on with it.
Nicholas Soames: Nonsense.
Nicholas Soames: Does my hon. Friend agree that the review undertaken by the Secretary of State for Defence was a remarkable achievement? Will my hon. Friend press him further to ensure that such reviews, where possible, are carried out in all other Government Departments?
Nicholas Soames: Will my right hon. Friend accept that many of us entirely agree with his stance on this issue and deplore the suggestion that any more money should be given to Nicaragua?
Nicholas Soames: asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the average tour of duty for an infantry regiment in the Falkland Islands.
Nicholas Soames: Will my hon. Friend take time today to thank our fighting troops in the Falklands, who do a marvellous job? Does he agree that the quicker we can arrive at a just, honourable and lasting peace with Argentina and bring the troops home, the better it will be?
Nicholas Soames: How does the industry arrive at an estimated saving of £300 million by increasing the speed limit?
Nicholas Soames: Will my right hon. Friend tell the House what progress is being made in the search for an honourable and lasting peace with the Argentine?
Nicholas Soames: What is her name?
Nicholas Soames: In view of the uncertainty hanging over the agriculture industry, will my right hon. Friend consider providing an opportunity for an early debate on it so that the House may reflect on the extraordinary achievement of one of our most successful industries?
Nicholas Soames: Does the hon. Gentleman seek to do to the farmers what he has done to the solicitors? Is this a genuine attack on a so-called privileged monopoly, or is he just seeking to make a point?
