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

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: The Government keep talking about the Soviet Union, perhaps quite rightly, but what is the Soviet Union today? Only yesterday, we heard that 70 or 80 per cent. of the population of Estonia and Latvia do not want their countries to remain part of the USSR. Will we not have to give serious consideration to helping countries such as Romania and Bulgaria individually? To put it bluntly, the USSR...

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

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: But they do not want it.

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the medium-term interest rates in the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States of America and Japan.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Interest Rates (28 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that, because of the cost of the reunification of Germany, which is costing hundreds of billions of deutschmarks more than the Germans said it would, and the fact that Germany will not allow inflation, German interest rates, which affect us all, are about 2 per cent. higher than they would have been without the reunification costs? May there not come a time...

The Gulf (25 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that, whenever there is a conflict, many young Birmingham people are involved—[ Interruption.]

The Gulf (25 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Those people hope that one clear development will come out of the justifiable and dreadful Armageddon that has overtaken Saddam Hussein and his forces is that it will help to deter other petty Saddam Husseins from embarking on such dreadful adventures, which bring misery to their own people and to the rest of the world.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Cbi (20 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my hon. Friend accept that one problem faced by industry and others is caused by state and private monopolies? British Rail is increasing fares way above inflation; British Telecom, British Gas and the water companies are all raising their prices; and now the electricity industry has announced that it will increase charges by 13 per cent. Why should all those concerned be able to protect...

Opposition Day: Manufacturing Industry (19 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: rose—

The Gulf (18 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that if Saddam Hussein did not think that allowing BBC, ITN and CNN reporters to stay in Baghdad was a good idea, he would have them out tomorrow? Is it not time that the Government and all Governments of the free world told those so-called news reporters that they should get out instead of being part of Baghdad's propaganda service?

Autumn Statement (13 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I shall say only a few words, because many hon. Members want to speak in the debate and there is always a danger that we shall repeat each other. The right hon. and learned Member for Monklands, East (Mr. Smith) should remember the well-known Scottish saying that fine words butter no parsnips. It is easy for those who are in Opposition or are Back-Bench Members of Parliament to give advice...

Autumn Statement (13 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I agree with my hon. Friend to the extent that the German system is important because it brings the management of banks into a much more realistic accord with the management of manufacturing industry. Too often, banks lend hundreds of millions of pounds for a glamorous property or financial settlement, because it will give a quick, glad return. If this country is genuinely going to thrive,...

Autumn Statement (13 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: That is a most interesting argument. However, were we not told in Brussels to reduce wage inflation to 2 or 3 per cent? Some of us pointed out that that would mean 3 or 4 million unemployed, but the attitude there was, so what? The Bank of England, in its superb Georgian offices in Threadneedle street, with magnificent Louis Quinze furniture, could dictate any level of interest rate. Is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: The Gulf (4 Feb 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that we wish that the conflict had never been started, but that, as it has been started, it must be finished? Does he further agree that the United Nations resolution on which the war is fought is one of humanity—finishing the war as soon as possible? If we continue with the attitude shown by some—luckily a minority—in the House, all tyrants...

Financial Services (28 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: The Financial Services Act 1986 was introduced with the best of good intentions. I do not know whether it has actually worked, but it has been proved to be hugely costly. The costs run into hundreds of millions of pounds, but still the Levitts, the Polly Pecks and hundreds of other crooks still seem to get through. It is not that the Act is too strong—in some ways it is too weak. One of the...

The Gulf (Oil Pollution) (28 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that this is an environmental crime unique in its enormity and that Opposition Members—fortunately, they are few—who do not join the whole House in condemning Saddam only encourage this evil man to continue his fight?

The Gulf (Oil Pollution) (28 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Of course it is.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we can all share an understanding of the appalling strain to which the families of service men and women serving in the Gulf are subject at this time? I refer in particular to the family of Flight-Lieutenant Peters in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Dame J. Knight). We have all seen the outrageous photograph of...
