Iraq (Exports) (3 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my hon. Friend accept that, in the cut and thrust of politics, we are all used to saying things about each other as a matter of course, but for Opposition Members to suggest that for some sordid reason, my hon. Friend the Minister for Defence Procurement would be willing to put British lives at risk for his personal interest is unworthy of them? Right from the word go, the Labour case...

Iraq (Talks) (3 Dec 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my hon. and learned Friend accept that many of us have been saddened by the appeasers' road to Baghdad that has been taken by some right hon. Members and by other spent volcanos of so-called leaders in Europe? Is it not time for us to say that what President Bush is really saying is that he is willing to give peace one more chance to stop bloodshed, but that what he is not willing to do...

Business of the House (22 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend agree that now is the time to get on with today's business so that we can have a resounding vote of confidence in Her Majesty's Government and, in due course, a resounding vote of confidence from the British people? The Labour party could not produce three candidates as good as we have produced to lead our party.

Orders of the Day — Trade Statistics (21 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Many of us, like the Minister, serve on the Treasury and Civil Service Committee. Often private companies are asked to provide information at their own expense and to fill in one form after another, and junior people are asked to fill them in to satisfy the people who gather statistics——

Orders of the Day — Trade Statistics (21 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: All Governments have had the problem of collecting statistics and this Government have done more to try to make them respectable and clinical than any other Government since the war. But how are we to make sure that statistics are pure? Until we have a fully computerised system—and the Government pay for it—why should private companies set their best people to collecting figures?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Training Programmes (13 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: You cannot bring Heseltine into everything.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Training Programmes (13 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: It is not just the money that the Government spend which matters, because, lamentably, the trade unions and industry do not spend enough money on training their own seed-corn labour for the future. Government money should be spent on encouraging industry and the unions to back labour training schemes because they are the people who will produce for tomorrow.

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (12 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Most of us agree that it is much better that those who commit crimes of violence and might commit them again should be kept in prison. However, the perpetrators of some of the worst crimes in the City have not been kept in prison. I do not believe that crimes of fraud in the City are victimless. A crime is a crime. Is not it true that wealthy people who have lived a life of great luxury fear...

Prayers: Autumn Statement (8 Nov 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that many of us have been disturbed at what we have read in the papers, which we always believe, that the Government are dismantling the health service? How is it, then, that we are told that we will spend £3·2 billion more this year? If that is dismantling the health service, what would we have to spend if we were trying to improve it?

Local Government Finance (31 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Will my right hon. Friend accept that, after 30 years in local government politics and 10 years as chairman of finance, I still find the figures a mystery wrapped in an enigma, as someone greater than any of us said? Next year could he at least produce comparable figures so that those of us who represent people understand what the basic figures mean and what the past means? It does not help...

Local Government Finance (31 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Are we getting 19 per cent. more?

Local Government Finance (31 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: How dare my right hon. Friend say that!

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

European Council (Rome) (30 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday we spent five and a half hours on dogs, but now an hour and twenty minutes seems to be enough to spend on the most important thing that is likely to happen to this country in this generation. Why can we not have a proper sense of balance? Why have you cut short this important issue, when dogs were worth five hours?

Orders of the Day — Environmental Protection Bill (29 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I hope that my hon. Friend the Minister will enlighten us in the near future. None of us wants to be difficult or to stand in the way of progress, and nor do we want to stand in the way of this country, France, Germany or the other member states deciding the issue for themselves and how they shall treat their pets. Britain has managed perfectly well, generation after generation, to decide...
