European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: That is, of course, a question for the Secretary of State for Trade, but I will bring it to his attention with a view to seeing what can be done.

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: We do not see a link of that kind, but what we have made absolutely clear as a Government is that we believe that it is essential that the rate of remuneration and the expenses allowances and the rest which will be payable to directly elected Members of the European Assembly should be known before those elections begin. Those standing should be aware of them, and, much more important, the...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I shall certainly see that the strength of feeling represented this afternoon on synthetic fibres by both hon. Members is taken seriously and that we look into what can be done on that front. On the much more important issue of principle which the hon. Gentleman raises, I can say categorically that the view of Ministers in this Government is that, in the future of the Community, power and...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: My hon. Friend has asked me two questions. One of the reasons why we have not been able to finalise agreement on a common fisheries policy is that we do not believe that the proposals put forward adequately meet the needs of the British fishing industry and the British public because of what we are expected to contribute to that policy. There will be no question of agreeing on a common...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: The Government are currently investigating the point the hon. Gentleman has just made about vesels carrying nets of only one size. This is a serious issue and we want to see whether steps are necessary. It is because we believe that the most important responsibility of all is to ensure that stocks are preserved and not eroded beyond redemption that we have taken unilateral action, having...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I note what my hon. Friend has said. I know that over a long period of time he has expressed a deep and responsible concern about this story. I suggest that this is a specialised issue. If he would like to take the matter up specifically with me in the detail which it warrants we shall look at what he has to say and see how we can respond.

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I agree that in the context of our approach towards a fishing policy for the Community good working relationships with Norway and a recognition of the particular contribution which Norwegian waters have to make towards the needs of consumers in the Community must always have a high priority.

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I know of no reason why June cannot be met as a target date. There is a commitment, I assure my hon. Friend, among Ministers in the Council of Ministers to meet that date. Dealing with the taxation point, it is clear that Members of the European Assembly will be taxed under the national taxation system unless the relevant protocols are changed and for that to happen there would have to be...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I believe that on reflection my hon. Friend will agree that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture has begun to tackle this problem pretty effectively. In our approach to the reform of the common agricultural policy, one of our highest priorities is to stop this abuse of public funds whereby they are wasted in building up surpluses of this kind. This is not a good way to use public...

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Cyprus (Turkish Forces) (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: The withdrawal of a further 800 Turkish troops from Cyprus was announced in mid-April. However, my right hon. Friend does not think it possible to divorce this question from the Cyprus problem as a whole, over which the Government support efforts by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to reconvene intercommunal talks.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Cyprus (Turkish Forces) (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: For the record, it should be said that at one time the Turks had about 40,000 troops in Cyprus. Withdrawals totalling about 15,000 have been announced at various times. There were 800 withdrawals when the Turkish proposals for Cyprus were made in mid-April. I can assure my hon. Friend that the British Government's view is that both sides to the dispute must show flexibility. That has been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Cyprus (Turkish Forces) (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I am sure that the hon. Gentleman would be the first to say that it is not for us to tell the United States Congress how to behave over the arms embargo. That is an American matter. We are deeply concerned about not only Cyprus but strategic and defence issues in the Mediterranean. We are also concerned about other disputes and their implications for Turkey and Greece. For all these reasons...

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Gibraltar (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: My right hon. Friend had a meeting with the Spanish Foreign Minister in New York on 2nd June. He hopes that a start can soon be made with the proposed working groups which they agreed to set up at his meeting with Senor Oreja in Paris, at which Sir Joshua Hassan and Mr. Xiberras were present.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Gibraltar (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I can confirm that the matter was discussed during the meetings to which the hon. Gentleman referred. There was reference to it in only general terms as it was not the central purpose of the visit. I think that he will agree, if he does not recall this from his reading of Hansard, that he has quoted a word that I have used myself in the context of the future between Gibraltar and Spain after...

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Gibraltar (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: I warmly agree with my hon. Friend. It would be good news if they would adjust their position to one that would be more acceptable in terms of their relationship with Gibraltar. As for our general commitment to Spanish accession to the Community, we take second place to nobody in our desire to see that speeded forward as rapidly as possible.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Gibraltar (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: With respect, I must disagree with the hon. Member. I recall that not long ago he put the same question to the Prime Minister, who made it clear that in his view the relationships between Spain and Gibraltar and the restrictions were totally unacceptable. He said that these difficulties should be removed as rapidly as possible and should certainly not wait on Spanish accession to the Community.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: West Germany-Berlin (Civil Flights) (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: Such an approach would obviously have to be co-ordinated with all our allies and would have to take into account many aspects of the air services agreements. The situation basically remains as described in the answer given to the hon. Member for Newbury (Mr. McNair-Wilson), that: quadripartite agreements establishing the air corridors did not impose any height limits. The Soviet authorities...

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Council of Ministers (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: The written statement of forthcoming Council business will be deposited tomorrow and I expect to make my oral statement on 3rd July.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Council of Ministers (28 Jun 1978)

Mr Frank Judd: As the hon. Member knows very well, this raises the subject of the Royal Prerogative. As he also knows, I have on many occasions, in response to his very genuine and passionate concern about this issue, given an undertaking that we will come to no definitive decision until the House has had a full opportunity to debate and discuss the matter.
