The Gulf (21 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: This is a United Nations war.

The Gulf (21 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that the country and the House agree that Saddam Hussein must be removed from Kuwait? How much safer will we be if this evil man decides to withdraw his forces from Kuwait and regroups within Iraq's borders? Is it not a fact that our argument is not with the Iraqi people but that, as long as a man as evil as Saddam Hussein stays in power, we can never hope for...

Business of the House (14 Jan 1991)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Will my right hon. Friend accept that what we are discussing now, and will be discussing tomorrow, is the fact that, for once in 50 years, the whole world has decided that the United Nations is right. It has passed 12 resolutions. The debate tomorrow is not about America or Britain but about the world against one demonic man. Surely the House should say not that there is a need for debate but...

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that this whole unhappy affair, which stretches back some years and in which so many innocent people were killed, should be settled once and for all? Her Majesty's Government have served the sense of justice well —there have been two trials already. When the appeal comes up, however, can we settle the whole matter once and for all? The Birmingham...

Points of Order (18 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: On this point, Mr. Speaker. We are all sorry to risk your wrath, particularly at this festive time, but as I understand it, there are five honours which the sovereign can give without advice from the Government. They are the Knights of the Garter, the Knights of the Thistle, the Order of Merit—

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: With respect, Mr. Speaker—

Points of Order (18 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: If I may forget Christmas charity, Mr. Speaker, if you will not listen to the point, how can you rule? I make the point that the sovereign awards certain awards, including the Royal Victorian Order, without advice from Ministers. Is this House to say that "Erskine May" is set in stone and will not move on with the times in which we live? Your ruling, Mr. Speaker, was surely to the effect...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: Punishment for Murder of a Police Officer (17 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: The argument that treason is a particularly evil thing is a complex matter to many of us. Treason means that a British subject betrays his own kind. It is said, even by the Russians in their perestroika and glasnost days, that George Blake helped to kill 45 agents. The Gulf has been mentioned today. If someone betrayed British troops, resulting in the loss of the lives of hundreds of those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security: Pensioners (17 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: May I join other hon. Members in welcoming my hon. Friend to the Front Bench? Is not it most important that we encourage companies and all employers to pay occupational pension schemes? Is not one of the most important events since 1979 that private pensions have increased by more than 130 per cent. in real terms? Is not that a way in which to make sure that people are better-off and more...

General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (Uruguay Round) (10 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that we have reached this stage with agricultural subsidies because of our failure to define exactly what a farmer is? Everyone seems afraid to tackle a situation whereby British farmers suffer because, in France and Germany, people who would not even be called allotment-holders here are called farmers? They often have jobs in factories during the day and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: North Sea (Safety) (10 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my hon. Friend accept that those of us who live many miles from the sea, but have had the benefit of visiting those lonely, dangerous outposts in the North sea, accept that if it cost another 1p a gallon or 1p a therm on gas from the gas fields to ensure that safety is the absolute top concern it would be money well spent? Lives will always be lost in those dangerous occupations, but...
