Petition: Holocaust Victims (Compensation) (12 Nov 1996)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am extremely grateful to my hon. Friend for giving me some of his time. I ought to tell the House—my hon. Friend may be unaware of this —that I work for a Swiss bank. I declare that interest before making my observations. Will my hon. Friend urge the Minister to tell the House exactly what the Government's view is of their dealings with the Swiss—whether they have been...

Petition: Holocaust Victims (Compensation) (12 Nov 1996)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Certainly not.

Petition: Holocaust Victims (Compensation) (12 Nov 1996)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 1996)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that, following yesterday's rise in interest rates, mortgage rates in this country remain at their lowest level for a generation? Can he recall any Government-announced interest rate move, whether upwards or downwards, that was not opposed by the Labour party?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 1996)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: During his discussions this morning with the leader of the Spanish Opposition, did my right hon. Friend have the opportunity to ask him why, after more than 10 years of socialism in Spain, that country still has the highest unemployment figures of western Europe?

Madrid Summit (18 Dec 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: As the number of difficult and technical issues connected with the move to a single currency mount, does not the wisdom of my right hon. Friend in negotiating a double option for Britain become more and more apparent? Will he give the country an assurance that he does not intend to throw away either of those options in the near future? Secondly, will my right hon. Friend comment on the fact...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (15 Nov 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Leader of the Opposition, not only throughout his speech but in all that he has said all over the country in the past 12 months, has hardly been able to point to a Conservative reform of the past 16 years, in labour law or in industrial law, in health or in education, that he proposes to repeal? Does my right hon. Friend agree that perhaps no one in the...

Barings (18 Jul 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that, during his statement, he mentioned the name of my constituent, Mr. Nick Leeson, on about a dozen occasions? Does it not strike my right hon. and learned Friend as odd, to say the very least, as it certainly does both Mr. Leeson's family and most of my constituents, that Mr. Leeson, who is clearly a central figure in this matter, should be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Monetary Union (5 Jul 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, when historians look back at his period of office in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and specifically Britain's position on economic and monetary union, they will see that during that time not only did we begin to tidy up what I suppose one might call the excesses of the Single European Act but the foundations were laid of a European Union of nations,...

Film Industry (6 Jun 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Is my right hon. Friend aware that a substantial Malaysian group, Third Millennium Studios, has planning applications before Watford borough council and Three Rivers district council to construct in the borough of Watford what would be the largest film studio in western Europe? Can my right hon. Friend, if those planning applications go through—as I hope and expect they will—assure me of...

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: As the right hon. Gentleman says, the devil in this matter is in the detail. I shall give my own case. I work as an adviser for British Petroleum. Before signing a contract with the company, I had an exchange of letters in which it was made perfectly clear that on no account would I raise questions, lobby or be active for it in the House. My activities for the company are entirely confined to...

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I agree broadly with what the hon. Lady is saying. Do I take it that she, like me, does not agree with the interesting suggestion made by my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Budgen) and by the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn) that the House should proceed by way of statute rather than through its own mechanisms, not least because adopting a statutory...

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Given that, like her, I think that the whole House wants to be certain that the resolutions that are put to the House are clear not only to Members but to the public, would the hon. Lady think it helpful if the matter, rather than being referred to the Members' Interests Select Committee—which, she is right, is the obvious place—were considered by a committee of senior Members who have...

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Like my right hon. Friend, I warmly welcome the Nolan report. I am interested in the point that he is making about clarity. Does he agree that, if the House were governed by statute and we were to seek to introduce a Bill to implement the report's recommendations, the drafting of that Bill would be a lengthy and rather complex procedure? There is one particular aspect of the report about...

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The point made by the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn) and supported by my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough and Horncastle (Mr. Leigh) is interesting. But if we were to go down the route to statute, would not that delay the matter much more than if the House dealt with it itself? Would not such a process involve the introduction of a Bill? If we were to have a statute,...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is of course my intention to listen in full to the speech by the Opposition spokesman: I have no intention of being discourteous. I was simply doing you the courtesy of apologising to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for having, as it were, not agreed with your ruling. I thought that it was courteous to do that.

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on the Bill at such an early stage. I begin by apologising to the hon. Member for Derbyshire, North-East (Mr. Barnes), my hon. Friend the Minister for Social Security and Disabled People and the hon. Member for Monklands, West (Mr. Clarke) for the fact that I shall not be here for the remainder of the debate. Like many hon. Members, I need to fulfil...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. It brings me precisely to the point that I seek to make. I hope to explain, not to the House but to the general public, how Supply is managed in the House, why it is managed in the way that it is and why, as far as I am aware, neither the parties below the Gangway nor the official Opposition have any intention of introducing any such...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Exactly so. I recognise that it is a novel position. I made that proposition to the Procedure Committee, to be honest to the hon. Lady, so that we do not indulge in these farces. When I was in charge of these matters, it would have taken me, after the ballot for private Members' Bills had taken place and I had worked out my chart and decided, acting on instructions, what the Government's...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I was seeking to respond. Perhaps I can develop my point.
