Foreign Affairs (19 Mar 1974)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Before the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs leaves the Chamber—for, I am sure, a well-deserved break—I want to pay tribute to the patience which he has shown during the debate. Further. I pay tribute to him and add my congratulations to him on attaining such high office. I take up what the hon. Member for Coventry, North-West (Mr. Edelman) has said. I, too, am...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill ( 5 Dec 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: When the hon. Member for Wrexham (Mr. Ellis) rose, I hoped that we were going to head a clarion call from a railwayman on behalf of the Channel Tunnel, but it seems that many of these colleagues of his are now at the other end of the building, and I was disappointed. My hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh, North (Mr. Alexander Fletcher) made a graceful maiden speech, particularly in his...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill ( 5 Dec 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I am still not quite clear what the better alternatives might be. I think I had better get on and leave the right hon. Gentleman to make the point later. I support the Second Reading of the Bill with the greatest possible enthusiasm. I regret that when I last spoke on this subject I did not exhibit the full enthusiasm for the tunnel that I might have shown. We had been urged by the Chair to...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill ( 5 Dec 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I shall come to that in a moment. If the Channel Tunnel were not built, the probability is that 3,800 acres would be needed to cater for the people crowding into the Channel ports and trying to put vehicles on the cross-Channel ferries. At the worst, electric traction on rail from areas north and west of London will take a substantial part of the traffic that would otherwise have to go by...

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I do not think that the hon. Member for whichever part of Wolverhampton it is that she shares with my right hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Powell)—

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I do not think that the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Renée Short) agrees with me about a number of things, one of which is the definition of democracy. In view of the recent by-elections, it is unlikely that her prognostication of a change of Government in the near future will be proved correct

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Equally, the hon. Lady's definition of democracy is not the same as mine. She maintains that a policy accepted by a broad body with all-party support is damaging to democracy. The decision in October 1971 to enter the Community was taken by a majority of well over 100 Members, from both sides of the House.

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: This is, however, the democratic system. If it is said that nationalisation after the war was done with the will of the British people as a whole, that is entirely contrary to the facts. However, I do not want to take up too much time. I support what was said by the hon. Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. William Rodgers), who made a very good speech. Having said what he did, the only odd...

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: —to be a member of our first delegation to that Parliament. I support my hon. Friend the Member for Saffron Walden (Mr. Kirk) in his remarks that the sooner we have direct elections the better ; and the sooner that we have all the meetings in one place the better. The holding of direct elections, however, is probably a much more difficult matter than individuals realise. It is essential...

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)
