Orders of the Day — Ministry of Overseas Development (Dissolution) (30 Oct 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I promise that I shall try to make the shortest speech of the evening. The order has been interpreted by hon. Members on the Opposition Benches as an order that will automatically lead to a change in attitude by the Conservative Government in their aid policy. There was an interesting intervention when an hon. Member reminded the right hon. Member for Lanark (Dame Judith Hart) of the moment...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Overseas Development (Dissolution) (30 Oct 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I have not yet started to develop my case. I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. The point I am trying to make is that I do not accept, as I am sure my right hon. and hon Friends do not accept, that this administrative change, in itself, necessarily means a change of attitude by the Government. I had the feeling that many Labour Members were making this point, as wish being father to the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Overseas Development (Dissolution) (30 Oct 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: One accepts that there are risks in foreign policy becoming involved in overseas aid. As there are so many poor people in the world, does the hon. Member think that it is dishonourable to give more money to a country which is likely to be friendly and less to those countries which support political theories to which we are opposed?

Orders of the Day — Government Expenditure (24 Oct 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Do I understand that, in supporting the alternative Opposition, as represented by the Bench below the Gangway, the hon. Gentleman is opposed to all cuts? If that is so, how would he propose to deal with the £4,000 million overspend which the official Opposition had planned? How would that be financed? Would it be 20 per cent. VAT, 40 per cent. on the basic rates, or a combination of both?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Retail Price Index (22 Oct 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, in the light of comments made by my right hon. and hon. Friends, the best advice that could be given to the Labour Party is contained in the lines of Alexander Pope: Let such teach others who themselves excel. And censure freely who have written well.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Cadets (26 Jul 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful to my hon. and learned Friend for that reply. Is he aware that the wastage rate among cadets going into the police force is authoritatively estimated to be about one in 100, whereas the wastage rate for adult entry is as now as low as one in three? Is he aware also that in my own county of Hertfordshire, where the possible intake of cadets is 60, since the cuts by the previous...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prime Minister (Engagements) (24 Jul 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: In the course of her busy day, will my right hon. Friend find time to ask her hon. Friend the Minister of State for Housing and Construction to speed up the preparation of the housing Bill? More important, can she give an assurance that the right of council tenants to purchase will be enshrined in that Bill in such a way as to make it impossible for Labour-controlled authorities to deny...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Commuter Railway Lines (18 Jul 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful for that reply. In view of the difficulties and hardships suffered by commuters in the past five years, will my right hon. Friend confirm that there will be no autumn rise in fares this year?

Business of the House (5 Jul 1979)

Members on both sides of the House? [That this House urges Her Majesty's Government to ban the import of...

Finance Bill: Continuation of Regulator Powers (5 Jul 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The hon. Lady has quoted from ITEM. Her right hon. Friend the Member for Llanelli (Mr. Davies) and the former Chancellor, the right hon. Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey), have already quoted with some relish from the same report. I hope she agrees that the statement by ITEM begins by saying that the situation in which the country finds itself is an appalling one. It says that we have high...

Clause 1: Independence for Kiribati (11 Jun 1979)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful to you, Mr. Weatherill, for calling me to speak, and I hope that I may be allowed to say, having known you in your previous incarnation, that one of my first experiences of the wisdom of the House was that it should have elected you to the high office that you now hold. My hon. Friend the Member for St. Marylebone (Mr. Baker), in seconding the motion on the Queen's Speech,...
