Social Charter (29 Nov 1989)

John Taylor: Yes, I am sure they will. On the other hand, if the directive is passed that makes the closed shop illegal, some members of the Labour party could object. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman, as a good parliamentarian—he is always here when the others are out there—will ask what a Labour Government would do if laws passed under the Single European Act were utterly unacceptable. The...

Social Charter (29 Nov 1989)

John Taylor: Anyone listening to the hon. Member for Sheffield, Hillsborough (Mr. Flannery) might think that the House was debating conditions in the workplace, which would involve issues such as health provision, safety conditions, equality of opportunity, training, consultation, collective rights of workers and unemployment benefit. Instead, we are debating who will make the law that reflects social...

Social Charter (29 Nov 1989)

John Taylor: For the first time in this place, to my memory, I welcome the hon. Gentleman's intervention and the strong admonition that he has directed to the Fianna Fail Government in the Republic of Ireland, who deny their citizens the right to shop in Northern Ireland. Yet they say that they are good Europeans. The real issue is whether we want diversity of national practice to be accepted within the...

Orders of the Day — The Economy (28 Nov 1989)

John Taylor: I find the Minister's opinion on North Down of great interest. Does that mean that he will not support the Conservative candidate who is to oppose the present hon. Member for North Down?

Orders of the Day — Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (23 Nov 1989)

John Taylor: When the hon. Member for Thanet, South (Mr. Aitken) referred to horsemen, I was reminded of the headstone on William Butler Yeats's grave in County Sligo. It is surely in the interests of the Conservative party that its members do not have their arguments in public. William Butler Yeats's headstone reads, "Horseman, pass by!" We are talking about rights, freedoms and responsibilities. In...

Orders of the Day — Industry and Environment (22 Nov 1989)

John Taylor: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Commercial Television (13 Jun 1989)

John Taylor: I welcome generally the Home Secretary's statement. It emphasises that, first, there will be greater transparency in the way in which licences are allocated to firms, and, secondly, that there will be greater competition. Will the Secretary of State consider the system that applies in the Republic of Ireland whereby those who—[Interruption]—yes, I am recommending something from the...

Botulism Outbreak (13 Jun 1989)

John Taylor: To reassure the public, can the Minister say for certain that the source of the problem is hazelnut puree and not any of the milk products involved? Do any of the firms which he has named manufacture any other flavours of yoghurt, and, if so, are they still available on the market?

Offenders (7 Jun 1989)

John Taylor: Will the Minister give way?

Offenders (7 Jun 1989)

John Taylor: I welcome the Minister's statement that new comprehensive legislation on this subject will be introduced, but I regret the fact that he referred to an order. In light of the views expressed by the official Opposition, the hon. Member for Newry and Armagh (Mr. Mallon) and, of course, by Ulster Unionist Members, will he consider introducing a proper Bill, with rights for full parliamentary...

Offenders (7 Jun 1989)

John Taylor: Because there are a lot of Conservative voters there.

Short Brothers plc (7 Jun 1989)

John Taylor: The Secretary of State will recognise my interest in Short Brothers because the company has plants in Newtownards and Castlereagh. We welcome Bombardier to Northern Ireland. The right hon. Gentleman's statement is better late than never; the delay associated with the whole matter has created great unrest within Northern Ireland and has certainly hit the morale of the company's staff. The...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) (8 Mar 1989)

John Taylor: As election results have consistently shown that 30 per cent. of the Roman Catholic community votes for the terrorist party Sinn Fein, why does the hon. Gentleman think it impossible for Sinn Fein to advance from 30 per cent. to 50 per cent?

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) (8 Mar 1989)

John Taylor: On the suggestion of a devolved assembly in Northern Ireland with power sharing between those who want a united Ireland and those who are British—in other words, the nationalists and the Unionists—does the hon. Gentleman extend the sample principle to Scotland? Is he in favour of power sharing between the Scottish Nationalists and the Scottish Conservatives in Edinburgh?

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) (8 Mar 1989)

John Taylor: I agree with the sharing of chairmanships among the parties, but with regard to the former Stormont Parliament I can assure the hon. Gentleman that the nationalist Member for Mourne was the Chairman of Ways and Means of the House of Commons.

Schedule 2: Financial Assistance to Opposition Parties (21 Jun 1988)

John Taylor: rose——

Schedule 2: Financial Assistance to Opposition Parties (21 Jun 1988)

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

VAT (European Court Decision) (21 Jun 1988)

John Taylor: Does the Minister agree that the ruling is a total routing of the Government by the European court? Is that why he has hidden the fact that the entire costs of the case have been awarded against the Government? Is it not true that this Parliament has lost because it has no option other than to accept the new legislation that the Minister will propose? Is it not also true that the people of...

Televising of Proceedings (29 Mar 1988)

John Taylor: Is it entirely the fault of the two minority parties involved in this debate that Wales and Northern Ireland are excluded from the Committee?
