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

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: This is a tremendously important issue. Not many of us have the privilege of having in our possession documents from those who are our masters. The hon. Member for Bradford, South (Mr. Cryer) said that Parliament should resist the directive and fight, but they are the masters——

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

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: The Common Market is the master. Once it lays down regulations——

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

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I shall not respond to the intervention, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Every hon. Member should realise that, once something becomes Common Market law, if individual countries do not obey they can be taken to the judicial court and be forced to enforced the law. Those of us who are pro-Common Market by nature are trying to explain that if we surrender our rights, as we are being asked to do, we do not...

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

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Disgraceful.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Manufacturing Output (25 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend agree that wage restraint is needed from the very top of industry, but that it is failing to give the right lead? If industry is to become profitable, it is no good having 6 per cent. wage increases in the German car industry while Rover and other workers are getting 13 per cent. That is the way to ruin and to losing jobs, not the way to prosperity.

Exchange Rate Mechanism (23 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: DM2·95.

Midland Metro Bill (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I understand some of the things which have been said, particularly by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Mr. Davis). If there are changes, we experience the NIMBY principle—not in my bloody back yard, you don't—

Midland Metro Bill (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I will not use it again. However, perhaps I should refer to the FLIMBY principle which I take to mean, "Not in my flipping back yard, you don't." We all agree that there should be change. On occasions we all agree that a road is needed here, an airport or a railway there. I will not repeat what I said earlier because of your sensitivities, Mr. Deputy Speaker, but when those needs arise...

Midland Metro Bill (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Somebody is always adversely affected by any change in anything.

Midland Metro Bill (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Of course that point will be dealt with, as all such things are, by every so-called expert. I state a general principle. All hon. Members have seen such things happen. I saw it happen in Selly Oak with the Bristol rail. Somebody sometimes wants to widen one side instead of the other. One side says, "Great," and the other side says, "No." As a general agreement has been obtained, can the...

Midland Metro Bill (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the most inspiring features of today's debate has been that all of the seven authorities agree? We are here to represent those who represent the local people. If seven authorities agree, is it not better, instead of continuing to praise their worth, to show our worth by voting on the issue so that we can forward what those seven authorities—which...

European Company Statute (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: We always await with huge enjoyment interventions from the hon. Gentleman.

European Company Statute (22 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: We always await your interventions with huge enjoyment, too, Mr. Deputy Speaker. We await with even greater anticipation the hon. Gentleman's interventions. Will he tell us why John Pilger should be looked upon as almost a holy grail of truth? Why is it that what such gentlemen say in all these programmes become facts? Why does the hon. Gentleman suddenly say that all the things that we hear...

Questions to Ministers (16 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: We are used to bogus and hypocritical points of order being raised in this House.

Questions to Ministers (16 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: I withdraw the word "hypocritical", but more than one Opposition Member has told me that they have been asked to sign questions that they did not even understand—let alone understand the answer. The hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Meacher) suggests that there is something hypocritical in the Government's actions, but if the Opposition ever came to office—which God forbid—they would do...

Exchange Rate Mechanism (15 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that many of us were disappointed by the rather churlish response of the right hon. and learned Member for Monklands, East (Mr. Smith)—for whom many of us have considerable regard—when my right hon. Friend has done precisely what was asked of him only a week ago, by reducing interest rates and joining the ERM? Is this because the Opposition have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Government Documents (15 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that I was amazed, if not astounded, when a constituent of mine who had been a prisoner-of-war in 1940–50 years ago—was told that he could not obtain his records for at least another 25 years because of state security? Is it possible that, in the world in which we live, 50 years on is too short a time and everybody has to wait 75 years before...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Government Documents (15 Oct 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: No.

Civil List (24 Jul 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that most of us think that this is a proper and dignified way in which to deal with the problems of sovereignty and with the way in which the royal palaces are run? There is something terribly undignified about having almost a row each year about how much money is spent on maintaining a superb system of royal government. However, does my right hon. Friend...

Teachers' Pay: PowerGen (Hanson plc) (23 Jul 1990)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: Does my right hon. Friend accept that some of the comments made about Hanson plc are squalid, foolish and narrow minded and that it is sheer nonsense to suggest that a political donation can enter into the sale or purchase of a public asset? Does my right hon. Friend accept, however, that in the sale of any public asset of the size of PowerGen, only a very limited number of...
