Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978 (30 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Is the hon. Gentleman saying that whatever else such a review may undertake or produce, it will not be open for it to recommend, if it so decided, that the Act should be withdrawn? That is the import of what the hon. Gentleman has stated.

Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978 (30 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: I share a good many of the anxieties that were expressed by my hon. Friend the Member for St. Pancras, North (Mr. Stallard). Although I shall not go over the details with which he has dealt I shall refer to the latter part of his remarks. While welcoming the Secretary of State's announcement, the impression that he gave of the long time scale of the intended review is not satisfactory to me,...

Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978 (30 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Does my hon. Friend agree that, whatever may be the desirability of the review that has been announced by the Secretary of State, in view of the work that has already been done by these organisations to which my hon. Friend has referred at length, there is no need to delay matters for the indefinite period to which the Secretary of State referred? On some of these matters, action could be...

Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978 (30 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: If the Secretary of State cannot give us details of the remit and terms of reference at this stage, and will report to us later, according to what he said earlier, will he tell us now, in general terms, whether the way in which Lord Jellicoe is conducting his review of the Prevention of Terrorism Act will be emulated in this further review? He is receiving evidence and making inquiries from a...

Orders of the Day — Special Development Order (Vauxhall Cross) (28 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: rose—

Orders of the Day — Special Development Order (Vauxhall Cross) (28 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: There is such a power in the Act, as in previous legislation. Leaving aside the judgment about the present proposal or whether the plan is private or public, does the hon. Gentleman accept that it has always been understood that the power should be used only when a matter of national interest is involved? If the hon. Gentleman checks any Department of the Environment file, he will discover...

The Middle East (22 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: The hon. Member for Westbury (Mr. Walters) began by calling on the friends of Israel outside Israel to echo the dissident voices quoted by my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey) in criticising the conduct of the Israeli Government. The hon. Gentleman said that this was important, and I do not deny that I shall return to it but I say to him and to those like him in the...

The Middle East (22 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: I am afraid that the hon. Gentleman repeats his error. It is no use pretending, or deluding ourselves, here or anywhere else, that the sole responsibility for what has been going on for the past 30 years in the Middle East between the Arabs and the Israelis lies with one State, Israel. It would be inappropriate, and time would forbid if I were to try, to rehearse the history over many years....

The Middle East (22 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: —there cannot be any basis for negotiation. The constant theme of political extremism, wherever and in whatever form it has been expressed, on the Arab-Israeli dispute is anti-Israel. There has been an unwillingness to accept that Israel has a right, and will continue, to exist. There must be an acceptance that it will continue to exist, whatever else is done in the political or military...

The Middle East (22 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Coming to the present situation, I wish to express a dissenting voice, if I may put it that way, from within the Zionist and Jewish position. I am a Jew, a British Socialist and a Zionist. The remnants of my family are on record in Yad Vashem in Jerusalem as having been destroyed by the Nazis. I do not need to be told by any Zionist in the lobby or outside that to criticise the recent conduct...

The Middle East (22 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: My hon. Friend will no doubt be able to make his own speech if he is called. Perhaps in the meantime he will allow me to get on with mine. There has been tremendous military provocation. I have seen it. I am not inventing it. I have seen the bombardments and the destruction that they have caused on a number of occasions in recent years. I did not have to go to Israel to be persuaded that...

Falkland Islands (10 Jun 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Will the Secretary of State explain to the House how he could say in his opening statement that the losses that had been suffered would not alter the plan of campaign and yet go on to say that, for operational reasons, the information to which the House and the country were entitled would not be forthcoming? Some of us will not be satisfied and will be worried about what appears to be an...

Orders of the Day — Falkland Islands (7 May 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Is it not clear that the recent escalation of military activity has contributed nothing to diplomatic success and that while negotiations continue our paramount concern should be to avoid the loss of more lives, from whatever source? Until it is clear that the present diplomatic initiatives and the new wave of negotiations are completed, any action that would result in the death of anybody...

Falkland Islands (19 Apr 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Is it not time that the Government informed the House, by way of a report, of the views that have been obtained from the Falkland Islanders? Is it not a fact that a variety of views have been expressed to official sources by those leaving the Falkland Islands and that there are families of Falkland Islanders in Britain who could be approached for guidance about the Government's political...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Overseas Visitors (Charges) (6 Apr 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Does the Minister realise that there have been cases—and he is doing nothing to prevent there being more cases——

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Overseas Visitors (Charges) (6 Apr 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: I accept that, but the Minister is doing nothing to prevent an increase in the number of those who should not be questioned from being questioned. What will be the administrative cost?

New Member: Direct Labour Organisations (30 Mar 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Is the hon. Gentleman trying to mislead the House? May I recommend to him that he ceases commenting on what I did not say and reads the Official Report tomorrow? He is totally and deliberately, with the help of his hon. Friends, misinterpreting what I said.

New Member: Direct Labour Organisations (30 Mar 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: There is nothing secret or newly revealed about what I said earlier. It is all published and on the record. It was published by CIPFA and in the working party report that my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Carthcart (Mr. Maxton) quoted but apparently received no attention from the Minister. What I said at the time of those reports and again today was that we would have translated into...

New Member: Direct Labour Organisations (30 Mar 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: Name it.

New Member: Direct Labour Organisations (30 Mar 1982)

Mr Reginald Freeson: I understand the hon. Gentleman to say that 30,000 houses a year could be built for letting and that that would be new build by the private sector. Is he aware that no one is stopping that happening? The Government have introduced measures that they claim will extend the provision of private rented new build housing outside the Rent Acts. Let us wait to see whether there will be 30,000 houses...
