Opposition Day: The Economy (24 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Should the proposed Chequers seminar examine the contribution that socialism has made to the German economic miracle?

Civil List (24 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Since my right hon. Friend formed her first Administration 11 years and more ago, has she not stressed the importance of getting value for public expenditure? Is there any area of the nation's life where value is better secured than the value from the expenditure to which my right hon. Friend has referred in her statement?

Local Government Finance (19 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Is not the additional allocation of £3 billion to local authorities next year more than they could reasonably have hoped for? Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is still an enormous gulf between the best and the worst local authorities in terms of price and quality of service? What steps will he take to bring greater efficiency, greater economy and greater effectiveness to local government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Anglo-Irish Agreement (19 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Is my right hon. Friend beginning to understand that whose who are best able to represent nationalists in Northern Ireland are those who have been elected as their representatives to this House rather than the Government of that only foreign power whose constitution lays claim to Northern Ireland?

New clause 3: Additional Relief for LDC Debt (17 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: We have just listened to a most agreeable speech from the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne, East (Mr. Brown). This has so far been a most agreeable debate. It will be a matter of deep regret to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, as it is to me, that we were not members of the Standing Committee. I have not served on the Standing Committee of the Finance Bill since the right hon. Member for...

New clause 3: Additional Relief for LDC Debt (17 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: As the forecast by my right hon. Friend less than four months ago appears to have been too optimistic about the size of the public sector debt repayment, and as Treasury forecasts made by people, however eminent, have turned out in the past to be dramatically different—[Laughter.] I see that I carry the House with me. I hope that I am carrying Treasury Ministers with me. I am asserting the...

New clause 3: Additional Relief for LDC Debt (17 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: It is not yet fashioned. It will be interesting to see whether the same commitments made in 1983 and 1987 are repeated in 1992. The hon. Lady and I will be watching for that with the keenest anticipation. I do not want to go back too far, but it is fair to go back to 1983, when we said: In the next Parliament, we shall endeavour to bring inflation lower still. Our ultimate goal should be a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Perhaps I can help the hon. Gentleman. He may know that Westminster city council now accepts, and leading counsel has advised, that the sale of the cemeteries by the city council was unlawful. In my judgment, the consequence of that is that in law the cemeteries are still owned by the city council.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: I enjoyed the speech of the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith) and I understand and respect the motives that prompted him to table his new clause. Certainly the six signatories to the new clause are among the most agreeable Members of the House. It is possible, however, even for agreeable people to be mistaken. I do not know which among that sextet will claim to be the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: The hon. Gentleman confirms my worst fears: increasingly the taxation proposals that affect the British people require the consent and approval not only of Parliament, but of unelected, unaccountable folk in Brussels. My hon. Friend the Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Mr. Forman), formerly Parliamentary Private Secretary to the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, asked who would...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: No, not on the Finance Bill. The hon. Gentleman, to whom I shall give way, does not seem to have read his own new clause, which provides that the Chancellor shall lay before the House, no later than 14 days after the Finance Bill has been laid before the House, the environmental assessment—that is a proposal in the new clause. The question my hon. Friend the Member for Carshalton and...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: The hon. Gentleman's own party would be happy to submerge this kingdom into a federal Europe. That view is not shared by Conservative Members.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Yes—that is why I shall not give way again to the solitary representative of the Liberal party. That party once represented Eastbourne, but once only, and we shall not give way to the Liberal party again. I am pleased to welcome to our proceedings my hon. Friend the Member for Aldershot (Mr. Critchley), who is an expert in these as in other matters, and to whom I shall give way presently....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: I have just been told by my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton, West (Mr. Sackville), who normally sits on the Front Bench, that he wants a vote to be called and so I have been invited to shorten my remarks—

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cars with catalytic converters (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Even if I am not willing to accept the rebuke from my hon. Friend the Lord Commissioner, I shall, of course, accept the rebuke from you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I have been going through the Treasury team, and one Minister remains—the Economic Secretary, who is today, as usual, wearing a green tie and who is to reply to this debate. The new clause is unnecessary. The Treasury, in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Expenses of entertainers (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Why stop at two other members of the PAC?

Points of Order (16 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. Even if it is not within the knowledge of the shadow Leader of the House, is it not within your knowledge that the Prime Minister will be submitting herself to cross-examination in this place tomorrow and the new Secretary of State will be submitting himself to cross-examination by the House at Question Time on Wednesday? Is it not further the case...

Economic Summit (Houston) (12 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Is it really the case that not a single Head of Government of the Group of Seven believes in the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Irish Republic (Extradition) (11 Jul 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: Have arrangements for extradition improved or deteriorated since 15 November 1985? Would not arrangements for extradition and Anglo-Irish relations generally be improved if articles 2 and 3 were removed from the constitution of the Irish Republic?
