Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The difference between my hon. Friend and me is that I recognise, as I believe does the majority of the House, that we are signatories to the treaty of Rome as amended by the Single European Act. Unlike my hon. Friend, I do not regard that as a disaster for Britain and I do not regard the Community and its institutions as the enemy of the United Kingdom. I regard the European Court of...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: If I have placed words in the mouth of my hon. Friend that he has not uttered, that was not my intention. Naturally, I apologise to him. The case that he is making is based on the treaty of Rome as amended by the Single European Act. If he is making the case, he is steering a wayward course in this matter. Sometimes, it is difficult to know his position. If his position is that we should not...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: My hon. Friend is an extremely distinguished lawyer—I should say my hon. and learned Friend. [HON. MEMBERS: "No."] He is not "learned", but he is an extremely distinguished lawyer. I hesitate to intervene on a lawyer of his distinction. He is what is known as a jobbing lawyer, so he is accustomed to the use of a certain amount of hyperbole. I did not say at any point that the European...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I assure my hon. Friend that he has not stung me, but I have a natural feeling of trepidation in discussing legal matters with a lawyer of his great distinction. To use the term that no doubt my hon. Friend uses when in court, it would be my respectful submission to the Committee that since my hon. Friend, having quoted me as describing the European Court of Justice as a political court, has...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving me the opportunity to intervene again. It is my contention that British courts also respond to changes in public opinion, not just on levels of fines, as my hon. Friend has implied, but through the establishment of substantial precedent. A good recent example of which the Committee will be well aware is marital rape. Previously, the decisions of the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The hon. Gentleman is repeating an allegation made by his right hon. Friend the Member for Copeland (Dr. Cunningham) extending not only to me but to No. 10 Downing street and to my right hon. Friend. He cannot and will not substantiate it.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Commencement (Protocol on Social Policy) (22 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am telling the hon. Gentleman, as a matter of fact, that no such briefing was given by No. 10, by my right hon. Friend or by me.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (15 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The hon. Gentleman has made a serious charge. Perhaps he will name those Ministers.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (15 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The right hon. Gentleman has made a very serious charge. Perhaps he will name those Ministers. If not, perhaps he will withdraw his remark.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (15 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The right hon. Member for Copeland (Dr. Cunningham) made three points and I shall seek to deal with them. He advanced the proposition, which may or may not be the case, that the majority of members of the Committee wished to have a Division on amendment No. 27. In response to that, Mr. Morris, you said that it is not always the Chair's duty to respond to the majority. Whether there is or is...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (15 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: It may come as a surprise to the right hon. Gentleman when I tell him that I am perfectly well aware of the briefing that is emanating from Downing street and elsewhere. It is not what the right hon. Gentleman has alleged.

Business of the House (15 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Not enough.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: France (14 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: We enjoy close and friendly relations with France based on many shared interests, included membership of the European Community, the Security Council, NATO, the Group of 7 and many other international organisations. In recent years close practical co-operation has increased as a result of the world-wide role of our two countries. We expect the close relationship to continue with the new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: France (14 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: France is our third largest trading partner. My hon. Friend is right in the sense that France has not only a population similar to that of the United Kingdom but similar consumer interests. I certainly believe that the French stand to gain more from an open market approach than from the sort of protectionist approach that my hon. Friend mentions. We have no reason to believe that the French...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: France (14 Apr 1993)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: This Minister and this Government believe in free trade. It is our intention and our policy, wherever possible, to ensure that the British consumer gets the best value, whether in energy, food or in any other matter.
