Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (Engagements) (27 Mar 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: The hon. Gentleman may be a convert to the principle of fighting the injustices of the CAP, but he has been conspicuous by his silence in recent months. He follows these affairs pretty closely and will recognise that there is a growing awareness amongst Ministers and others in the Community of the justice of the British case on the iniquities of the common agricultural policy. The sheer logic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (Engagements) (27 Mar 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: That is not immediately an issue for Foreign Ministers, although it should be resolved within the European Assembly. Everyone who follows public affairs must be deeply distressed about it, and I hope that Members of the European Assembly and Members of this House will discuss it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (Engagements) (27 Mar 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has made it perfectly clear that when the revision of financing and budgetary arrangements occurs, which will necessitate unanimous decisions in the Council of Ministers and the agreement of this House, that agreement will not be reached until everyone is convinced that the changes are sensible and just.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (Engagements) (27 Mar 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I am glad to say that the Commission has put forward sensible price proposals, which have been supported to the hilt by this Government. Would that we could persuade other Governments to support them as fully.

Middle East (9 Mar 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I should like unreservedly to join those who have congratulated the hon. Member for Horncastle (Mr. Tapsell), not only on having given us this opportunity to debate the Middle East and related matters but on the extremely informed and objective way in which he initiated that debate. I think the tragedy of this afternoon is that the time has been so short for an issue of such immense...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: The Government are keeping in close touch with Dr. Waldheim, the Cyprus parties, and other interested Governments, about progress towards a resumption of intercommunal negotiations. We have made clear our full support for Dr. Waldheim's efforts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: The United Kingdom Government, together with the Governments of the United States and Canada, have been closely following the prospects for restarting the negotiations. We are determined to do all that we can to assist in this matter and we have our own proposals available as a basis for detail in this respect. We must persevere in trying to get the parties together. I hope my hon. Friend...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: If that were true it would be a serious allegation. It is not true. We have done all that we can to support international efforts to resolve the humanitarian problems. We are now convinced that the best way of doing this will be in the context of a general settlement. In the meantime, we are sorry that the parties themselves have not yet been able to reach practical arrangements for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I am sure the hon. Lady will agree with what I said a moment ago. If people are to have the prospect of real security and peace in their homes in Cyprus, it underlines the urgency of achieving a general political settlement and the importance of us all doing all that we can to persuade the parties to come together and start working on Dr. Waldheim's proposals, supported by the more detailed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Persian Gulf (14 Feb 1979)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Persian Gulf (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I think the hon. Gentleman will agree, on reflection, that the lesson of recent history is that real security and stability must rest on arrangements that make political sense in the context of the countries concerned. My right hon. Friend and I will, of course, be discussing with Ministers in the Gulf the mutual problems in that area. Obviously, the need for stability in the Gulf is of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Persian Gulf (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: Evaluations of oil supplies are being made as of now about the implications of what has happened. Of course, there will be serious consequences for world supplies. That cannot be denied. As for the general position on relationships, I am glad to tell the House that our ambassador already is establishing good working relationships with the new Government in Iran.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Persian Gulf (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I do not think that we see NATO as fulfilling, as NATO, a function in the Gulf. However, we believe that because of the inescapability of international interdependence in these matters we must all face the need to support those with responsibility locally for stability in the Gulf in any way that makes sense.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Persian Gulf (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: What everyone in the House will recognise is that recent events have made it clear that, in any part of the world, eventually the Government depend upon consent—[HON. MEMBERS: "Hear hear!"] As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is making plain constantly in the context of domestic issues, that applies in this country as well. I understand that in recent months my hon. Friend, with his...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Persian Gulf (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: My right hon. Friend has at present no plans to do so.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Vienna (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I agree with my hon. Friend, as I know my right hon. Friend does, that what is most important in arms control matters is to ensure that the detailed technical discussions take place within the framework of real political will to make progress. In this context, we are committed to a meeting at Foreign Minister level when circumstances indicate that serious progress can be made. We do not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Vienna (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I can think of no more challenging issue for the international community than effective international action in this sphere. I assure the hon. Member that we want to do anything that we can do in the years ahead to make the work of that agency increasingly effective beyond what it is doing already.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Community: Council of Ministers (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Frank Judd: I assure my hon. Friend that, within the context of political cooperation, members of the Nine take very seriously co-ordination of their approach to CSCE talks. We are already looking keenly at what will come on to the agenda at the next formal round in Madrid. We believe that the success of those talks will depend on the effectiveness of the preparatory work before that formal meeting takes...
