Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (8 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: Will the Minister spell out on each occasion that he proposes necessary reforms of the CAP exactly how much the salaries of British farmers will be reduced as a consequence?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rwanda (7 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he last met his European Union counterparts regarding the situation in Rwanda; and if he will make a statement. [25433]

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rwanda (7 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: Since we beatified the blessed Baroness Chalker yesterday, I would not wish to canonise her today. Although I congratulate Her Majesty's Government on the efforts that they have made in the European Union, in spite of quite disgraceful opposition, to continue to support Rwanda in the way that it is being supported, may I urge on them the necessity of taking to task the French Government for...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: Will the Minister give way?

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: Does not my hon. Friend consider that a good example of what he is talking about is provided by Clare Spottiswoode, who was appointed to look after the public interest and operated at a public service or civil service level?. But we now know that she is putting in for a huge rise that will take her salary well into six figures.

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: May I emphasise the fact that in the present bunch of Ministers Lady Chalker shines out like a beacon?

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. I wish to probe his previous point. I believe that the Bill is too skeletal and too limited in its outlining of the foundation. Therefore, it is a question of whether one trusts the Government. I accept that the hon. Gentleman trusts the Government and I hope that he will accept that I do not genuinely trust the Government. If he were in my...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: May I join other hon. Members in praising the Crown Agents? When I worked in Africa, I worked with the Crown Agents, and saw the practical work that it did for the United Nations development programme. As I was a delegate for the European Commission there, I saw the work which the Crown Agents did for the European Union. It was extraordinarily effective, because it had a reputation as an...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: There is absolutely nothing wrong with profit, nor did I suggest that there was. But there is a great deal wrong with profit that goes directly into the hands of greedy individuals rather than going into the wealth of the nation. It is extremely important to remember that. The Minister allayed none of our fears. He continually said that there was nothing in the Bill. There is nothing in the...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: It is entirely possible that the Secretary of State for Wales might even take over with a place in the Cabinet, which would indeed give cause for concern. The hon. Member for Gravesham (Mr. Arnold) said in one of his more fluent interventions—he managed to get up and say a hit instead of mumbling from the Back Benches as is his wont—that we were using the term "privatisation" in the...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: The Minister is absolutely right—it is not a sinister, macabre plot, because there will be a five-year hold on full privatisation. That is spelt out in the Bill. The Minister said that the Government will ensure that the plans are tightly drawn. When I heard that, I scanned through the Bill once again. If it is tightly drawn, I shudder to think what a loosely drawn Bill would be like. Mr....

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: When we take over government again, as the hon. Lady has virtually admitted that we will do very soon, we will start from a different place. As the Irishman said, "I wouldn't have started from here". I will not start from where the hon. Lady would wish me to start. We will have to see what is happening at that time. I hope that the five-year estop, which has been imposed, will be most...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: As the Prime Minister said earlier this afternoon, I am not going to answer questions in the way that hon. Members want me to answer them; I am going to answer the question as I see it. Let us consider the disincentives to proaction. The Minister will recall that the tighter rules, of which he now complains, were brought in in 1979 for a perfectly good reason. They were originally mooted by...

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: That fine British company has just given us an example of democracy at work at the meeting of its shareholders. The former Prime Minister used to shout that small shareholders now control the world. British Gas gave us a recent example of how it controls its small shareholders, who were lured into giving up their money on the understanding that they would have some power over that company....

Orders of the Day — Crown Agents Bill (Lords) (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend. We can go further. The real problem of the Crown Agents is the disgracefully decreasing amount of aid that this country disburses. The Prime Minister and others are fond of comparing us with the rest of Europe. In fact, if we are compared with the rest of Europe in the amount of money, in the lack of increase in money, in our reduction in bilateral aid...

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: CHILD MAINTENANCE DISREGARD (No. 2) (22 May 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: I have surgeries or appointments every week, and not a week has gone by without someone complaining to me about the unjust workings of the Child Support Act. They do not complain about the Act itself; most fathers admit that they have a duty to pay what their children require to receive a decent upbringing. They are complaining about the fact that the payment formula has been worked out in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: City Pride (17 May 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has to extend the city pride initiative. [23198]

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: City Pride (17 May 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: Is not the way in which the Government look at special schemes and then set them up, excluding other areas, somewhat arbitrary? I am thinking particularly of the single regeneration initiative, which is not all bad and in which some very good things are happening. However, its arbitrary nature is excluding certain areas. South Elmsall, South Kirkby and Upton have been put together, but...

Prayers: Competitive Sport (15 May 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: The Minister will have noticed that, under the present funding of schools, there has been a considerable decrease in the number of cricket pitches available. Cricket pitches are extremely expensive to maintain. Will the Minister make a special effort to ensure that extra funding is given to the annual maintenance of cricket pitches?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Public Borrowing (11 May 1995)

Mr Derek Enright: Will the Chancellor compare and contrast the differing definitions of public sector borrowing in different countries in the European Union?
