Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: I am grateful that my hon. Friend has given way a third time. Further to the comments by the parliamentary private secretary to the Minister for Industry, were the amendments to be put to a vote I would also emphatically, although apologetically, oppose the amendment tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Maidstone, and would urge the House to support my amendment No. 10 which, if I am...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Under-Secretary of State for Trade and Industry for giving way. He has cited the report more than twice. Does he have additional copies for me, and my hon. Friends and Opposition Members to peruse before he takes us through it, as I hope he will? Secondly, will my hon. Friend tell the House a little more about...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: My hon. Friend makes an uncharacteristically intemperate attack on my amendment. If I am fortunate enough to catch your eye, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I shall certainly move amendment No. 10 and I shall demonstrate that, far from being irresponsible, I am seeking to join the rest of the House and act in the spirit of the Bill in making it safer for children and those who drive having consumed...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak in today's interesting arid important debate. I shall try to follow some of the points made by my hon. Friend the Member for Brigg arid Cleethorpes (Mr. Brown), but at less length, because I am conscious that a number of my hon. Friends wish to speak both on this Bill and the next. I see that the proposer of the next Bill is present. It...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who is more knowledgeable than me about the brewing industry. I suspect that he knows more than many of us about the technical aspects of the production and marketing of such products. He has cast some doubt on the first hour of the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Brigg and Cleethorpes and I am sure that the House will be grateful to him for his...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: I am extremely grateful for your protection, Mr. Deputy Speaker, because my hon. Friend was seeking to guide me down a route which was clearly out of order. I was making the point that whatever amendment, if any, was included in the Bill could not make up for the tremendous size of the community charge bill which I received in the letter box this morning, and on which it would not be...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: I think that my hon. Friend is thinking of the National Health Service—and who can blame him when the Scots can spend 25 per cent. more than we can? However, that is an avenue down which I would not wish to advance, or I would try your patience, Mr. Deputy Speaker. One effect of the Bill will be to align some of the provisions of the licensing laws on the sale of drinks in unlicensed...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: The hon. Gentleman is wrong. I very much hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing, North (Mr. Greenway) will be able to speak to his Bill later. I hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Honiton will be successful and also that the next Bill will reach the statute book. There is bound to be confusion in the labelling of low-alcohol beers. A recent press release from the Ministry of...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Low Alcohol Drinks) Bill: Low Alcohol Liquor Not to Be Intoxicating Liquor for the Purposes of the Licensing Act 1964 (20 Apr 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: As the hon. Gentleman knows, I have spoken for much less time than other hon. Members. I am sure that he does not wish to prolong my speech. On all these points, it is the Minister and the Bill's promoter, my hon. Friend the Member for Honiton, who will be able to clarify the different amendments and the effects that they will have. I have tried to put the case for my amendment. I...

Finance Bill (1 May 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. A good many people wish to take part in the debate on the Second Reading of the Finance Bill. The hon. Lady's comments, while entertaining, are entirely irrelevant to the matter under discussion.

Business of the House (3 May 1990)

Andrew Mitchell: Has my right hon. and learned Friend had a chance to read the report on the front page of the Daily Mail about the extremely disturbing series of events that it is alleged are taking place in a prison in Nottingham?
