Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: That is news to me. I did not know that students were allowed to use the library. I am horrified to hear that news. I understood that we had a right to use its facilities. I have done so in one way or another without realising that I was misbehaving. I hope that that matter will be investigated, because it sounds serious.

Extradition Decision (Dublin) (14 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: Is the Secretary of State aware that most people in the United Kingdom will be very disappointed by his reply to the House this afternoon? For him to say merely that he is disappointed will come as a shock to most people. He should have said that he was outraged at the Irish court's decision. Is the Secretary of State aware that, in addition to the reason given by the Supreme Court, which he...

Points of Order (20 Jun 1990)

John Taylor: Are these questions on the European Court's decision really out of order? Surely the pass was sold on the sovereignty of this Parliament when Conservative Members voted for the Single European Act?

Calcutt Report (21 Jun 1990)

John Taylor: Does the Secretary of State recognise that we on the Ulster Unionist Bench share the concern about the excesses of the press? However, I am glad to say that such allegations do not apply to the press in Northern Ireland and I am particularly pleased to say that as a publisher of several newspapers in the Province. However, the allegations have been made against national newspapers, but...

European Council (Dublin) (28 Jun 1990)

John Taylor: The Prime Minister confirmed in her statement that she has committed the Government to intergovernmental conferences in December on economic, monetary and political union. Will the Prime Minister confirm that she has committed herself to a process that will inevitably lead to a federal Europe, a single currency and a central bank, and to the eventual diminution of the sovereignty of this...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

John Taylor: This afternoon, the Secretary of State introduced for a further year direct rule in Northern Ireland. He rightly questioned it as a long-term solution to the system of government in Northern Ireland, and Unionist Members share that view. He mentioned that this was a temporary provision. For the past 16 years, Secretaries of State for Northern Ireland have described it as a "temporary...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

John Taylor: No. They have 38 per cent. support.

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

John Taylor: It has fallen to 34 per cent.

Opposition Day: Environmental Policy (9 Jul 1990)

John Taylor: On a subject in which we have a common interest.

Opposition Day: Environmental Policy (9 Jul 1990)

John Taylor: The right hon. Gentleman referred to industrial waste being dumped at sea. Does that include waste from Sellafield?

Clause 18: Assisted Places (18 Jul 1990)

John Taylor: I have been impressed by the Minister's enthusiasm on this subject. He referred at least three times to "the country" in his speech. Now that he intends to extend the programme, will he extend it to the nation, rather than to what he considers to be the country?

Terrorist Attacks (Northern Ireland) (24 Oct 1990)

John Taylor: The Secretary of State has made a grave statement to the House this afternoon. He referred not only to the immediate incidents that occurred in the past 24 hours, but to earlier incidents that have occurred in the past few weeks. In the past few weeks, there has been a regrettable upsurge in IRA activity across Northern Ireland and, unfortunately, that activity involved the deaths of two of...

Orders of the Day — Environmental Protection Bill: Dog Registration (29 Oct 1990)

John Taylor: A 100 per cent. increase.

Orders of the Day — Environmental Protection Bill: Dog Registration (29 Oct 1990)

John Taylor: The Northern Ireland experience is that registration did not prove unpopular. About 20,000 dogs were registered before the new dogs order was passed. Once it was introduced and the fee went up to £5, the number of dogs registered went up to 80,000, which is four times the previous figure.

European Council (Rome) (30 Oct 1990)

John Taylor: Although the Ulster Unionist parliamentary party sits at present on the Opposition side of the House, is the Prime Minister aware that we are shocked at the somersault of policy that has taken place in the British Labour party, which is now prepared to sacrifice the democratic rights of the British people and to accept instead economic policies that are imposed by a bureaucracy based outside...

Indirect Tax Harmonisation and Statistics (15 Nov 1990)

John Taylor: I had understood that the Opposition opposed a single currency. Is the hon. Gentleman saying that, if the other 11 countries in the Community support a single currency, we should automatically support it as well?

Fisheries and Aquaculture (15 Nov 1990)

John Taylor: We are debating two revisions to regulations from the European Community, one on North sea conservation schemes and the other on small-scale fisheries vessels' support schemes. The Minister might have been right to say that the debate could be described as narrow. We are debating also the motion in the names of the Prime Minister and her colleagues. It is a broad motion that covers the...

Fisheries and Aquaculture (15 Nov 1990)

John Taylor: They are not members of one of the main political parties. As the hon. Gentleman says, they are not even represented in the Chamber this evening. What is the tremendous interest of the main political parties in Scotland? In anticipation of the debate, I submitted a written question about the damage that is being done to Scottish ports by United Kingdom vessels. I shall give some figures to...

Fisheries and Aquaculture (15 Nov 1990)

John Taylor: The Minister can answer my questions when he replies to the debate. I hope that Northern Ireland will be properly represented and that when we have our major debate on the recommended TACs for 1990 we shall hear from the Minister a report that the allocations for area VIIa will be similar to those for 1990.

Fisheries and Aquaculture (15 Nov 1990)

John Taylor: Gibraltar is within the European Community. It was in it long before Spain.
