Appropriation (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) (23 May 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: I understand that it is customary for me to begin by paying tribute to the previous Member for Upper Bann, which I do gladly. Mr. Harold McCusker can be aptly summed up as a man of the people. He worked extremely hard for the people of Upper Bann and cared deeply for their welfare. I know from canvassing in the recent by-election that he was held in high regard and with deep affection by the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Cultural Heritage (21 Jun 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Will the Minister assure us that the programme will pay due regard to the cultural heritage of the majority of people in Northern Ireland? The Ulster museum is currently putting on an exhibition entitled "Kings in Conflict" which helps to repair the serious omissions caused by the political censorship of the exhibition held in London in 1988. Will he take steps to cover the financial loss...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Private Rented Accommodation (27 Jun 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: While one wishes to see a considerable increase in the supply of rental property, does the Minister consider that more needs to be done than just removing rent controls? Has he considered the experience in Northern Ireland, where there has been no rent control whatever on new-build properties since 1956, without producing any increase in supply? Does he agree that other measures are necessary...

Statutory Instruments, &C.: Housing (3 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Initially I was reluctant to speak in this debate because the motion, with its references to the Housing Act 1988 and to urban and rural areas in Britain, seemed more a Great Britain than a United Kingdom motion. After I made my maiden speech, one Conservative Member said to me that he hoped that I would speak in United Kingdom debates and not limit myself to Northern Ireland matters....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Irrespective of any welcome devolution to an assembly in Ulster, this House will still have some legislative powers with respect to Ulster. Will the deputy Prime Minister therefore ensure that all such legislation is made properly by a Bill, thus ending the temporary, contingent and offhand manner in which the House has handled Northern Ireland affairs? It would also end the grotesque mistake...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: I know that the Secretary of State has said that a new agreement should enjoy widespread support, but does he not accept the indisputable fact that the existing agreement does not have, never has had and never will have widespread support?

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: The hon. Gentleman is expounding, carefully and accurately, article 1 of the Anglo-Irish Agreement. Does he agree that the crucial part of it is the reference to the fact that there would be no change in the status of Northern Ireland? It says, "would", not "could". The Secretary of State misquoted that. Could is normative, whereas would is merely descriptive. Therefore, there is no...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Will the hon. Gentleman compare article I of the Anglo-Irish Agreement with the Sunningdale agreement? He is right to say that, to a large extent, the Irish Government's statement in the Sunningdale agreement was on similar lines to their statement in the Hillsborough agreement of 1985. Will he, however, please check that the word "could" that was used in 1974 became "would" in 1985, which...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Is she still trying?

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Why? That is a silly remark.

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: It is one of the quietest periods of the year.

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: No.

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: The hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) showed those typescript pages to me earlier. I wondered whether they were extracts from a document that was published in Dublin round about 1975, by members of the Official IRA, as it was called then, giving its account of the formation of the Provisional IRA. It was subsequently declared a subversive document under the Republic's emergency...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: I trust that the hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) will forgive me if I do not take up any of the concerns that he expressed because I wish to return to the Secretary of State's speech. However, I shall make just one comment on the matter to which he referred, which is more relevant to the speech of the hon. Member for Brent, East (Mr. Livingstone). I was glad to hear the hon....

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: But does the present system of government have widespread acceptance? of course it does, because the system springs from the operation of the House, in which Governments are formed. The system has widespread acceptance, although any particular Administration may or may not have widespread acceptance or support, depending on their popularity. One would not automatically decide that the system...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: In that case, should one say that the House should be abolished and closed down because the Government no longer have widespread support? Of course not; what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. The principles and standards of democracy must remain, and so long as the institution has widespread support, Governments may come and go. If that holds true here, it must hold true across...

Northern Ireland (Direct Rule) (5 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Yes, in August of last year. Presumably they were aware of them. They intimated a number of months ago that they were willing to proceed along those lines, so they must have known what they were doing. One wonders, therefore, why those difficulties have emerged during the last few days and what caused the Irish Government to change their mind. Was it because they thought that some kind of...

Business of the House (10 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (10 Jul 1990)

Rt Hon David Trimble: I was interested to hear the hon. Gentleman's complaints about delegated legislation, which he said was sometimes almost as important as primary legislation, and about the absence of an opportunity to amend it. Does he agree that those points apply with even greater force when the delegated legislation is primary legislation, as with Orders in Council for Northern Ireland? Will he support...
