New Clause 3: Mandatory Reports to Be Made by Banks (15 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I do not want to say too much about the Bank of England now as I have the honour to sit on the Treasury and Civil Service Select Committee and I am confident that next week we shall be making some inquiries of the Governor himself. It is easy, off the cuff, to say that it must be someone else's fault—that it must be the fault of the Bank of England. It may well be that the Bank of England...

New Clause 3: Mandatory Reports to Be Made by Banks (15 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I rarely come across financial innocence, but I come across incompetence daily. Anyone in his right mind who heard what happened in Florida a few months ago, when Noriega drug money was talked about, who still thinks that a local authority should lend money in that way is incompetent in his job. I was taught early, as an articled clerk, that one should never borrow long and lend short. That...

Points of Order (15 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You mentioned new clause 3 of the Finance Bill. The new clause is about the future of banking. However, the chief worry of more than 200,000 people in this country concerns what has happened in the past. The BCCI problem is not about the future, but about something awful that happened in the past. Why should there not be a separate debate?

Bank of Credit and Commerce International (8 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my hon. Friend accept that two questions out of many arise? One concerns the deposit protection scheme. Bearing in mind the fact that many small traders and depositors are at risk, if the money can be reclaimed later, should we not, as as matter of urgency, at least help those people in the short term? The second question is about the problem caused by the fact that any bank that opens...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 4 July.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is good news that strikes are now at a 30-year low and that, except for a few wretchedly greedy people in privatised monopolies, most people are now accepting wage restraint? Would not all that be upset by a minimum wage policy, which the trade unions and the next Labour Trade Minister have set and which would add two points to inflation and at least...

Points of Order (3 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Very rarely are you ever misguided, and certainly you are never wrong, but surely the issue of Yugoslavia, which touches upon Britain and the rest of Europe, should have been given more time. Sometimes we have an hour for questions on quite trivial matters. Surely we could have spent at least an hour on such an important matter. How can it be right to cast...

Points of Order (3 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Not at all, Mr. Speaker.

Points of Order (3 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker.

Points of Order (3 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The occupant of the Chair should not impugn an hon. Member's honour.

Points of Order (3 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: It is quite wrong to do that.

Electricity and Gas Industries (2 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: This is an interesting and important debate because we are talking about an essential element for the society in which we live. Profit should not be a dirty word because without profit nothing is created. There is no money to invest unless there is a profit from labour and from capital. The privatisation of the monopolies has yielded many benefits for Britain. Some £12 billion or more has...

Electricity and Gas Industries (2 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: None of us wants to go in for spurious statistics. However, referring to the link that Sir Graham Day has made between the pay of the chief executive of PowerGen and that company's ranking in the FT100 index, does my right hon. Friend really accept the balderdash that running a privatised monopoly is as difficult as running an industry such as GKN or any other company that has to withstand...

Electricity and Gas Industries (2 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: It is 85 per cent. a monopoly.

European Council (Luxembourg) (1 Jul 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Many of us feel much easier in our minds now that negotiations in Europe are in my right hon. Friend's hands. Today's European buzz words are "convergence" and "level playing fields". If we are to see a united Europe in any of our lifetimes, does that not mean a massive transfer of wealth from such countries as Britain, Germany and France to, for instance, Greece and Portugal? If we wait for...

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 20 June.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Has my right hon. Friend had a chance to look at early-day motion 902, which is an all-party motion tabled by, among others, the hon. Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick)? It concerns Guardsmen Povey, Hicks and Ray. Through no fault of theirs—whoever's fault it was, they were not on a holiday jaunt—they lost their legs in a tragic accident. With his well-known compassion and concern...

Business of the House (6 Jun 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that there is a growing sense of unease on both sides of the House about the case of Guardsmen Povey, Hicks and Ray which was raised in an Adjournment debate by the hon. Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick) the other evening? Although the case involved only three people, the House should be concerned about their fate. The explanations given so far have been...
