Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: How does the hon. Gentleman know that those hon. Members were not considered?

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: rose—

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Many Conservatives are astonished that the hon. Member has not been nominated by his party. Was he considered and was his name rejected? Did he refuse to serve?

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: It may be appropriate for me to begin by declaring my own outside interests. I am on the advisory board of the Union Bank of Switzerland, I work for Bywater International and I work for British Gas and British Global Gas. There is one other confession that I should make to the House which is appropriate to this debate: on one occasion, I received £1,000 in the Palace of Westminster in...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I shall come to that point in a moment. I mention the incident because, although it is true that some of our constituents would condemn gambling in any shape or form, the fact is that most of our fellow citizens indulge in an occasional flutter. The House—this is the point that I wish to make in reference to the members of the Committee—would be vastly diminished if those of us who make...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: When I have concluded this point, I shall give way to hon. Members who wish to intervene. There is a footnote to the wager—and this answers the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for St. Ives (Mr. Harris). The Opposition Member concerned, who paid up promptly and honourably, asked me not to go public on the matter and that is why I do not propose to reveal his name. In fact I told a...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I shall finish the point and then I shall certainly give way. The hon. Gentleman need have no fears about that.

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: It was not. I do not know why the Opposition Member concerned wants to keep the matter to himself. Perhaps it is partly for domestic reasons. If I had come home having lost a general election and £1,000, Mrs. Garel-Jones would have been exceedingly displeased with me. The hon. Member concerned may think that the puritan element of the Labour party—perhaps I should now call it the...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I can answer both questions. I would advise the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan (Mr. Salmond), if he is placing bets, to bet on John Major and not on his own party. Curiously enough, the best bet at the general election, which I did not make, was 50 to one on the Tories getting more seats in Scotland, which as the hon. Gentleman will recall, they successfully did. I remind the hon....

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am sorry that I gave way to the hon. Lady. I am coming to the main thrust of my speech. I was simply making the point—it is a fair point—that the House is not just a body of high-minded legislators, although I hope that it is that, too, but a group of men and women who, I hope and believe, broadly reflect not only the aspirations and hopes of the British people, but their whims and...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am sorry that hon. Members are treating this debate with such levity. There are evangelical campaigners on both sides of the House who make a significant contribution to the House, as does the hon. Member for Workington. However, I do not believe that the interests of the House or the country would be served if the House was made up of evangelical campaigners with a sprinkling of...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 Jul 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I most certainly did not come into the House because I was attracted by the pay or, indeed, the conditions. What I hope the nominated Members will not do is allow the hostile feelings that all of us sometimes feel towards the press to run away with them, and take measures against access to the press and so on which the House may, with hindsight, regret. I also hope that the Committee will...

Prayers: Competitiveness (17 Jun 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Further to the point of order from the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner), Mr. Deputy Speaker, regarding a possible Speaker's Conference on private Members' Bills, may I avail myself of the opportunity to ask you to let Madam Speaker know that many of us in the House believe that no private Member's Bill should be introduced which requires a money resolution?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Repeals (20 Apr 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The hon. Lady spoke of this Finance Bill, and of this Budget being a defining moment. Can she recall a single Finance Bill or Budget in the past decade when the Opposition's strength of feeling about that Budget has been so great that they were unable to keep the debate going in the time allotted to it?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Repeals (20 Apr 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: indicated dissent.

New clause 3: Minewater (22 Mar 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Was is it a good meal?

Clause 2: Transitional and Consequential Provision (8 Mar 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Further to that point of order, Madam Speaker. In the event that you were to investigate the point of order raised by the hon. Gentlemen, no doubt you would realise that the Chancellor of the Duchy, far from condoning the practice mentioned, said that the only circumstances in which he could envisage its being justified were when a Chancellor of the Exchequer was faced with difficulties in...

New clause 3: Amendment of Law Relating to (21 Feb 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: My hon. Friend put that question to the right hon. Member for Islwyn and I agree with the answer that the right hon. Gentleman gave. The House of Commons must, of course, be very careful not to run ahead of public opinion in any matter, and, in particular, in matters of personal conduct of this kind. In my judgment —other colleagues will make their own judgment—I suspect that we have...

New clause 3: Amendment of Law Relating to (21 Feb 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am glad that my hon. Friend has raised that point because it is important. My right hon. Friend the Member for Selby seemed to imply that the law was some kind of guideline. I do not wish to see the House of Commons passing laws that are guidelines. It should pass laws that are rigorously enforced. My hon. Friend the Member for Brighton, Kemptown (Mr. Bowden) has raised an important point,...

New clause 3: Amendment of Law Relating to (21 Feb 1994)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Of course I agree with my hon. Friend's points.
