Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Bovine Tuberculosis (9 Jun 2005)

Ben Wallace: The Minister has no doubt seen the report today from the university in his constituency that shows the harmful effects that bovine TB has had on farming and, indeed, on farmers, given the stress and loss of income that they are now suffering. In light of the successful trials on culling in Ireland—the results were out at the beginning of the year—will he finally consider allowing...

Health and Education (24 May 2005)

Ben Wallace: I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Swansea, East (Mrs. James), whom I congratulate on her succinct speech. This is my maiden speech. Yesterday, while I was waiting all day to be called, it struck me that a maiden speech is a bit like a first bungee jump, leap from an aeroplane or chance to walk a girl home—while one is waiting, one does not know whether one will get one's...

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Ben Wallace: The next few days will be vital to the future of Britain and how it decides to tackle Iraq. The Prime Minister will have to decide whether Britain's interest should come before the interests of the United Nations, China and Russia. This war is not about the diplomatic hoops that we might or might not have to jump through. It is not about giving a dictator another week, month or 17 or 24 days....

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Ben Wallace: The Conservatives' position on Iraq has always been that we should act in Britain's interest. If we cannot secure a United Nations resolution, we must decide whether acting in Britain's interest is enough. The Liberal Democrats say that the UN is the only way, but under the leadership of Paddy Ashdown, the Liberal Democrats went outside the UN to deal with Serbia and Bosnia. How quickly they...

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Ben Wallace: Let us remember that this is about Saddam Hussein; it is about right and wrong and doing what we think is best. We cannot live in the past.

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Ben Wallace: Resolution 1441 does not supersede, but adds to, resolutions 678 and 686 and resolution 678 authorises the use of force to achieve the aims of previous UN declarations. Does that not allow further action to be taken?

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Ben Wallace: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (13 Mar 2003)

Ben Wallace: No. I have given way several times. British military action will be justified only if there is a further resolution from the UN Security Council and an affirmative vote on a substantive motion in the House of Commons. John McAllion made a point that was not specific to the present dispute. I share his view that, although the royal prerogative has been used to go to war over many generations,...

Scottish Parliament: Introduction: "Partnership for Care" (27 Feb 2003)

Ben Wallace: I thank the minister for the advance copies of his statement and the "Partnership for Care" white paper. Page 35 of the white paper, on the development of partnership integration and redesign, states: "If necessary, we will bring forward legislation to require NHS Boards to devolve appropriate resources and responsibility for decision-making". Does that mean that the minister will devolve...

Scottish Parliament: Health (26 Feb 2003)

Ben Wallace: It is right and proper that, in the closing days of the session, the Scottish Conservatives should choose to debate the health outcomes of the Executive. Over the six years since Labour came to power, and the four years of the Lib Dem pact, not only have we seen billions of pounds of extra money pumped into the system, but we have seen the abandonment of a Conservative ideology on health care...

Scottish Parliament: Health (26 Feb 2003)

Ben Wallace: No, I have to sum up. What do we get for all the billions of pounds? That is important. John McAllion made a point about investment and the need for more money. There is no point in putting money into systems that do not produce results. I will put more money into any health system that produces tangible results. The head of Tony Blair's own delivery unit, Michael Barber, recognised that the...
