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?

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?

Opposition Day: Environmental Policy (9 Jul 1990)

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

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.

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...

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...

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...

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?

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...

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: As has been pointed out, we cannot amend the motion. However, this debate gives Northern Ireland Members an opportunity to explain to the Government the problems being experienced in the Province. In all fairness, we live there and we represent the people, so we are more likely to be aware of the problems. It is wise and good to seize this opportunity to acquaint Northern Ireland Ministers...

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: That is true. Indeed, it would be easier to assimilate Donegal today than it was in 1921 because half the population have had to leave in the past 70 years. I shall deal briefly with some of the supplementary Estimates. It is interesting to note which items are dramatically reduced because savings have been made during the current year, and which items are considerably increased because...

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: That makes it even worse. The hon. Member for Belfast, East (Mr. Robinson) confirms that Dr. William Hastings, who is a partisan and active politician in Northern Ireland, belongs to the same branch as the Minister who is to reply to the debate. I hope that when he is replying the Minister will say whether he intends to pursue the policy of Dr. William Hastings and abolish LEDU.

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: No, the Minister will have a chance to reply at the end of the debate.

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: Very well.

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: There are many leaks about who and what in Northern Ireland, but I am sure that we have a list of the three people who are members of the East Belfast Conservative Association. I should like to turn to the economic development section on page 14 and speak about the importance of the tourist industry in Northern Ireland. Reorganisation is taking pace in the Northern Ireland tourist board, and...

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: I am sorry, Mr. Speaker, but I did not say that. However, apparently the chairman of Northern Ireland Airports is a Tory, and that is unfortunate. Incidentally, at school he was a fag to one of the Ministers in the Northern Ireland Office. The advertisements for a new NIA chief executive appeared in several publications. Some of them sell in Northern Ireland, such as the Belfast Telegraph...

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.

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: And in the Boyne valley, too.

Northern Ireland (Appropriation) (12 Mar 1990)

John Taylor: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the problem of unemployment benefits for fishermen is of national as well as provincial importance? Does he agree that we should press the Minister to make representations to his colleagues in the Department of Social Security?
