Bosnia (12 Jul 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Would the right hon. and learned Gentleman accept my congratulations on his achievement in becoming Foreign Secretary? Many of us would regard his new job as a fitting continuation of the admirable tenure of his predecessor. But does he now realise that it is absolutely essential, if he is going to prove himself in his new job, that he has to mount the resolution of the French Foreign...

Points of Order (5 Jul 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. Having been for many years one of the elder statesmen, and not normally needing such a prop as this stick, I had hoped to catch your eye a little earlier. For many, many, many years now, your predecessors have always made a point of asking me to ask some small question during Foreign Affairs questions. I was very eager this afternoon just to say—I was...

Points of Order (3 Jul 1995)

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

Points of Order (3 Jul 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: It is extremely relevant —

Points of Order (3 Jul 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: On a new point of order, Madam Speaker. You mentioned the courtesy of the Minister who deals with Northern Irish matters, but I wonder whether that is correct. I wrote to him on 31 January, 29 March and, again, on 25 May and I had no response to my comments on the guilt of Private Clegg until I received a letter off the Board as I came in this afternoon. It was very courteous of him. At the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Housing (27 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Was not that somewhat overheated presentation by the Secretary of State simply the grunts and gasps of a Government in their death throes—and a rather poor performance, some of us thought? Should the populace and the House not be made aware that, during the jousting and the fun of Prime Minister's questions, the Press Gallery was packed, but when we come to this much more serious...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Housing (27 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: indicated assent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Housing (27 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: My questions will be brief and to the point, Madam Speaker. I just wanted the country to realise that we do a rather better job than the Press Gallery. Does the Secretary of State realise that figures for the west midlands over the past 15 years of Tory Government are not terribly satisfactory? In 1979, 64 times as many council houses were built as are built now. Does the right hon. Gentleman...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Housing (27 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Yes, nearly finished. Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that households in negative equity in the west midlands affect 63,000 people? Think of the agonies and tragedies that involves for the people of the west midlands—all due to the policies of the Conservative Government over 15 years.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Dance and Skating Centres (26 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: May I apologise immediately, Madam Speaker? Old age and the stick create strange circumstances. Do forgive me.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Regional Theatre (26 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Thank you. I am obliged for your consideration, Madam Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: National Lottery (26 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that there are a number still of old-fashioned and moral Scots in the House, who vastly disapprove of public gambling and the appalling social consequences of such practices? Will he accept—not much of a hope with the modern Tory party—that heritage and the arts should be a direct responsibility of Government and not of those who are tempted to buy...

Halifax Summit (19 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: As regards Brent Spar, which was raised by Chancellor Kohl in bilateral discussions, what contribution does Shell UK make to the Conservative party? If the Prime Minister does not like the question, why does he not publish the figures of funding for the Conservative party?

Business of the House (15 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Would it not be advisable that the House, sooner rather than later, should debate the appalling social damage being done by the national lottery to the well-being of the folk of this country, and the total improprieties of the profit levels of the company running it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: West Midlands (14 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Louder, louder! Some of my older colleagues—there are a few left—may remember that when Baroness Thatcher first stood at that Dispatch Box in 1979, I warned that she would create of Britain a disaster area. Where could that be truer than in the west midlands?

Bmarc (13 Jun 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Is it not now requisite upon the Prime Minister, in view of the sleaze-stained record of his Government, that he establish yet another public inquiry—this time into the extraordinary obtuseness of his Ministers?

Bosnia (31 May 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Lucky me! Having listened to some of the rubbish that I have had to listen to this afternoon, it is now two minutes past 7. In my 30 years in the House, I have seen some strange liaisons—both in the Chamber and, not surprisingly, outside the Chamber—but tonight's is a collector's piece. We have my much regarded hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) appearing to try to...

Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (16 May 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: Perhaps the Foreign Secretary would tell us what is so understandable about Israel's nuclear policy. Other countries could mount exactly identical arguments.

Opposition Day: National Health Service (London) (10 May 1995)

Mr Andrew Faulds: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Whatever gibberish the Secretary of State wishes to propound today, should she not be called to order? Is there not a long-established tradition in the House—I have been in the House longer than the Secretary of State—that when the leading speaker from the Opposition gets up, the Secretary of State sits down?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Jul 1994)

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