Prayers: Fishing Vessel (Sinking) (23 Nov 1990)

John Taylor: Campbeltown is only miles from Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland's fishing industry has a close working relationship with fishermen on the west coast of Scotland. On behalf of the Ulster Unionist party and our fishing industry in County Down, I extend sympathy to the families in Campbeltown who have been so sadly bereaved and to the whole fishing community there. Will the Minister...

Opposition Day: Poll Tax (5 Dec 1990)

John Taylor: First, I take the opportunity of congratulating the right hon. Gentleman on his return to the Government Front Bench. I can well understand his difficulty in answering the question yes or no, but surely he can answer with a yes or a no the question whether he will extend the poll tax. There still remains one party in Northern Ireland, the Conservative party, whose spokesmen want an extension...

European Community (Developments) (6 Dec 1990)

John Taylor: If one looks at the Order Paper one will realise that, in theory, we are debating documents in preparation for two intergovernmental conferences this month. We are also supposed to be debating various decisions that have been taken in the Community during the past six months. In practice, the debate is about something different. We are debating how power is creeping away from this...

European Standing Committees (22 Jan 1991)

John Taylor: In reply to the hon. Member's query, I can say that there has been full consultation with all the minority parties, including the SLD.

United States Forces (United Kingdom) (5 Feb 1991)

John Taylor: Will the Secretary of State advise the House of the estimated loss of jobs arising from the closure? As the American submarines have been the cause of many serious accidents and damage to fishing boats from Northern Ireland in the Irish sea, will the right hon. Gentleman, in the last few months of the operation of the American submarines, make a further request to the authorities to ensure...

Points of Order: Hill Livestock (27 Feb 1991)

John Taylor: The Minister mentioned that sitting beside him is the hon. Member for Richmond and Barnes (Mr. Hanley), who is the Minister responsible for agriculture in Northern Ireland. He has been sent over from England to look after the people of Ulster. He and I recently attended a conference at Greenmount agricultural college on the subject of the family farm. One of the main guest speakers was the EC...

Points of Order: Hill Livestock (27 Feb 1991)

John Taylor: The hon. Gentleman makes a valid point. When the Under-Secretary of State for Northern Ireland tried to sell the increased HLCA payments, he said that they would mean an extra £2·7 million for the farmers of Northern Ireland. He ignored the financial limit per hectare. There might not actually be a £2·7 million benefit to Northern Ireland. The hon. Member for Antrim, East (Mr. Beggs) was...

Points of Order: Hill Livestock (27 Feb 1991)

John Taylor: I am glad that Tory Members agree with me. I am not sure whether the Minister is speaking only for Great Britain tonight or for the United Kingdom as a whole, but I want to ask several questions that apply to the United Kingdom. The Minister's presentation of the deplorable delay in the introduction of the increases in HLCAs was a little too smooth. We should had have them towards the end of...

Business of the House (14 Mar 1991)

John Taylor: I was interested in the right hon. Gentleman's earlier reply, in which he said that he hoped for an announcement in the near future on Northern Ireland Electricity. Did he mean a statement about Government policy or a statement about the procedure in this House for dealing with proposals on the future of Northern Ireland Electricity? Does he recognise that there will be outrage throughout...

Birmingham Six (14 Mar 1991)

John Taylor: Has the Secretary of State seen early-day motion 518 signed by 69 Members from both sides of the House, expressing disquiet about the sentencing of four Ulster Defence Regiment men? Does he recognise that many people in Northern Ireland will feel hurt by today's news that the royal commission will be restricted to England and Wales? There is no constitutional reason why it could not have...

Northern Ireland Electricity (Privatisation) (20 Mar 1991)

John Taylor: Does the Secretary of State recognise that the Ulster Unionist party created the state industry of Northern Ireland Electricity and is proud of NIE's service to Northern Ireland? Does he accept that all the Northern Ireland parties in the House are against his proposal? Will the right hon. Gentleman explain why he will not allow the House to debate the proposals in a normal parliamentary...

Northern Ireland Electricity (Privatisation) (20 Mar 1991)

John Taylor: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker.

Northern Ireland Electricity (Privatisation) (20 Mar 1991)

John Taylor: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. When hon. Members on these Benches asked for a Bill rather than an Order in Council so that we could have a proper debate on the measure and the right to table amendments, the Secretary of State kindly responded by saying that a debate could take place in the Northern Ireland Committee if we so requested it. Is that not somewhat misleading, in that, even if...

Northern Ireland (Political Talks) (26 Mar 1991)

John Taylor: The Unionists sent the Government a letter in August 1985 suggesting talks between the parties of Northern Ireland, the London Government and the Dublin Government, a suggestion which was promptly rejected by the then Prime Minister without consultation. Since then, an Anglo-Irish Agreement has been imposed and we have had six wasted years. Does the Secretary of State recognise that there is...

Unemployed People (19 Jun 1991)

John Taylor: It would be churlish not to welcome the Secretary of State's statement, particularly at a time when the nation is suffering from a rapid increase in unemployment, but does he agree that the opportunities for the unemployed would be better enhanced if the Government created an economic and industrial policy which encouraged industrialists and business men to create new jobs? As the Secretary...

Appropriation (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) (10 Jul 1991)

John Taylor: The debate on the order gives hon. Members a chance to discuss matters affecting Northern Ireland constituencies. Before speaking about my own constituency I shall comment on the Minister's speech. The first issue, raised initially by the hon. Member for Antrim, North (Rev. Ian Paisley), relates to the MacSharry proposals for the reform of the common agricultural policy, a matter that is...

Appropriation (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) (10 Jul 1991)

John Taylor: The hon. Gentleman and I are in full agreement on that. We want a strong Government response that will give guidance and leadership to the people of Northern Ireland, and especially to those engaged in agriculture. It is not good enough to sit silent while waiting to see what happens in Brussels, because by then events will have overtaken us. The Minister spoke about the Northern Ireland...

Appropriation (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) (10 Jul 1991)

John Taylor: I do not want to get into a competition between Belfast and our rural towns and villages. I have an interest in the whole of Northern Ireland as well as in Strangford, the part of it that I represent. I rejoice in the fact that Belfast is buzzing. I am delighted to see the progress being made in the capital city of Northern Ireland. Anyone who now sees Royal avenue, and the urban development...

Appropriation (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) (10 Jul 1991)

John Taylor: No, I do not. The funding for the urban development programme can come from the Department of the Environment, as happens with Belfast. But the so-called malign influence of the fund to which my hon. Friend the Member for Upper Bann (Mr. Trimble) refers has no role to play in the urban development in the city of Belfast.

Appropriation (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) (10 Jul 1991)

John Taylor: The hon. Member for Antrim, North is right. The International Fund for Ireland does not finance urban development projects in the city of Belfast; as I understand it, its funding is restricted to projects in villages and towns outside Londonderry and Belfast. I want to see the funding for urban development going to the eastern part of the Province as well as elsewhere in Northern Ireland....
