Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Machine Tools Technologies Association (5 Jun 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: It does not matter to me, Mr. Speaker, if the Opposition act like idiots—so it should not worry you. These trade associations are important in respect of exports, but does my hon. Friend agree that if they are to prosper abroad it would have been more encouraging for British industry if the new Moscow trade centre had been built by a British firm, not a French one? Does he think that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Challenger Tank (4 Jun 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Will my right hon. Friend accept that he would need to have the tongue of a Cicero to convince even his own hon. Friends to buy the German Leopard tank or any other foreign tank for the British armed forces? Let us stop procrastinating. Let us say today that there will be one tank for the British armed forces and it will be Challenger. Why not say that now? Why must we wait?

STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS, &c.: Members (Resettlement Grant) (22 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: The Top Salaries Review Body arrives at some incredible proposals for hon. Members and I do not welcome the proposal for a grant in the same way as some people. I have managed to scratch a few bob together and at this stage I am not concerned about my interest in the matter. A Member of Parliament who loses his seat, especially in his earlier years, faces real problems. Judges can retire on...

Schedule 9: Repeals (22 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: They are trying to wind you up.

Schedule 9: Repeals (22 May 1991)

Dangerous Dogs (22 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Having had the doubtful pleasure of being bitten by a rottweiler—

Dangerous Dogs (22 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: No, the dog lived too. There is a growing problem with guard dogs, of which rottweilers and dobermans are the well-known breeds. Although we talk about the savage injuries caused by the two dreadful breeds of fighting dogs, nearly all the injuries are caused by rottweilers and dobermans. The interbreeding of those dogs is a time bomb which is just about coming home. Many young people are now...

Further and Higher Education (20 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Is not one of the most important and significant issues in my right hon. and learned Friend's statement the fact that we are drawing together the blue and the white-collar workers, as polytechnics will now, quite rightly, have the same status as universities so that those who go to polytechnics will be able to gain real qualifications that will allow them to have real jobs and take a real and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 9 May.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Will my right hon. Friend accept that when we came to office 12 years ago the top rate of taxation was 82 per cent., that it is now 40 per cent. and that the miracle has happened because everyone has been encouraged to work harder which has meant that £17 billion more has been spent on the health service this year than when we came to office? Does he agree that a nightmare will strike people...

Bangladesh (Aid) (8 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: rose——

Bangladesh (Aid) (8 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Yes.

Bangladesh (Aid) (8 May 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I understand your resting between questions, Mr. Speaker. Certainly I do so at times. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, while nature can never be entirely stopped, we can spend money on super-computers and satellites? The better we can forecast tragedies, the better our chance of saving lives. If we could stop nature, we should be better than any god or any David Icke. If money were...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Apr 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that it is surprising to hear the Leader of the Opposition praying in his support the chairman of British Petroleum, who spoke against the Government today, bearing in mind the fact that much of the inflation has been caused by petrol companies putting up prices more than they should and paying themselves more than they should? What lead is that and what...

Iraqi Refugees (22 Apr 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that people such as Terry Waite and John McCarthy are small in number but great in the injustice from which they have suffered for some five years? The fact that the Iranian Government now ask us for aid, having turned it down on other occasions when it suited them, should give us a proper opportunity to say that humanity may suffer, but we are not prepared to...

Confidence in Her Majesty's Government (27 Mar 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I have high regard for the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley) as a Birmingham Member of Parliament. Last night's Birmingham Evening Mail reported the results of a poll for which the Labour-controlled city council had asked. According to that poll, three quarters of the population think that the Labour-controlled council wastes money. Does that show that my right...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (25 Mar 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that, although there are many excellent measures in the Budget and that we on the Conservative Benches are not concerned with the Opposition, who are likely to remain in opposition for some years to come, this should be the last Budget in which the motor industry is singled out to be clobbered? At present, £1·5 billion of extra taxation is levied from one of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Combined Cycle Gas Technology (25 Mar 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: British Gas is increasing its prices because it says that it is losing £250 million due to bad weather. It seems to think that it can insist on doing that when it loses money due to problems of bad weather, good weather or lack of industry. If private industry could have things so easy, it could earn riches beyond the dreams of the Pharoahs. Can we not stop this kind of nonsense in...

Orders of the Day — War Crimes Bill (18 Mar 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Thirteen million Jews died.

Orders of the Day — Soviet Union and Eastern Europe (4 Mar 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: My hon. Friend said, rather woundingly, that I had been extreme. That is not in my nature. The problems faced by those in the Soviet Union are very much of their own making. They gave thousands of millions of dollars of aid to Cuba, and still do so; they gave thousands of millions of dollars to support the fighting in Afghanistan, and thousands of millions of dollars to Iraq, all of whose...
