Mr Andrew Faulds: On a point of order, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (20 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Sadly, yes. The House will miss me. May I make as my last contribution, Madam Speaker, after 31 years of the most distinguished service, a valuable contribution to the proceedings of this august Chamber? When I first came here—

Points of Order (20 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Shut up, you silly little boy. When I first came here 31 years ago, the custom was never ever to thank the Speaker for catching someone's eye. Can I implore you in the next Parliament—I do trust and pray that you will be where you are now—to instruct Members not to go through that rather placatory practice of thanking you for simply doing your duty? This is a new development and it...

Orders of the Day — Police Bill [Lords]: Business of the House (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: May I express my regret that the right hon. Gentleman did not manage to muster the same encomium for my hon. Friend the Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing) as he did for my distinguished colleague here, my right hon. Friend the Member for Bethnal Green and Stepney (Mr. Shore)? I hope that he will not repeat the same error when I have finished. Am I not correct—as I usually am in the...

Points of Order (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Further to the earlier point of order, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: This is another aspect, Madam Speaker. Would you inquire whether it is at all feasible for the House of Commons itself to decide to postpone prorogation?

Business of the House (13 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: The right hon. Gentleman will appreciate that I have been a long-time admirer of his admirable Quaker character. He will appreciate that I have always been among the mildest of his inquisitors. Because of the real dangers to peace in Israel, in Albania and over Cyprus, it is essential that the House has a chance to debate those matters, even in a one-day debate, before the recess. Will he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (12 Mar 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: May I preface my question with an apology for turning up so late for foreign affairs questions? As you will recall, Madam Speaker, I have been an assiduous attender for many years. I have the best excuse in the world: I was entertaining to luncheon one of the most distinguished cultural figures in Britain, to whom the nation should be deeply grateful. I do not wish to publicise my name along...

Opposition Day: National Health Service (24 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day: National Health Service (24 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: It is not a question of fun. This is a serious debate about a serious matter. Will the Secretary of State assure the House that what he has just read was not written before he heard my hon. Friend's speech?

Business of the House (20 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: rose—

Business of the House (20 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: I am so grateful for that warm welcome—again, please. Madam Speaker, may I inform you in privacy that my wife and I this morning had only very slight hangovers and we are most grateful to you? May I be less demanding of the Leader of the House this week than I was last week? Is he not well aware, as the people who are concerned about foreign affairs in this House are, that there are...

Points of Order (19 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Would a point of order be in order, Madam Speaker?

Points of Order (19 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: I appreciate your appreciation, Madam Speaker. A little earlier this afternoon, an hon. Gentleman on the other side referred to a statement being made to the viewers. That really is unacceptable in this ancient Chamber. Would it not be advisable that, when these occurrences take place, the hon. Member should make a requisite apology to the House? Would it not also, in addition, be advisable...

Orders of the Day — Firearms (Amendment) Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental (18 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: I am finding my hon. Friend's contribution fascinating, as I am ignorant on these matters—[Interruption.] I know a great deal about more things than most of those sluggish lads on the Conservative Benches. I am finding my hon. Friend's speech fascinating, and I am prepared to wait until he finds the lost papers.

Orders of the Day — Firearms (Amendment) Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental (18 Feb 1997)

Orders of the Day — BSE Crisis (17 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (13 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: In view of the immensely increasing dangers to peace in the Balkans, both between Turkey and Greece, in Albania, in Kosovo and in Cyprus because of the aggressive policies of the Greek-Cypriot Government, is it not time that the House of Commons had a real opportunity to debate these issues in depth—perhaps a two-day debate—before we go into the final seizures of this Government?

Points of Order (12 Feb 1997)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Further to that point of order, Madam Speaker. [HON. MEMBERS: "Senile dementia."] A long time ahead yet. May I assure you, Madam Speaker, that most of us in the House who believe in speech-making and interruptions will not accept silence in our valedictory speeches. The more we are heckled and interrupted, the more the House and the Members will enjoy it.
