Orders of the Day — Small Businesses and the Self-employed (31 Jan 1990)

European Community (Right of Residence) (8 Feb 1990)

Mr Roger Knapman: I am particularly grateful to my hon. Friend the Minister for setting out so clearly and carefully the full effect of the draft directives in relatively few minutes, and I shall try to be brief. I appreciate the full importance of the EC as a trading bloc, and its necessity to our future prosperity, but I should like to make a few comments on these fairly wide-ranging measures—especially...

European Community (Right of Residence) (8 Feb 1990)

Mr Roger Knapman: Perhaps I should have said that we should be careful about drawing conclusions at this stage. Perhaps that would be more acceptable. Should we be applying to the European Court of Justice to determine these matters, or should we be insisting on article 235? At what stage will my hon. Friend consider whether a veto should be used to force the matter? Paragraph 16 states: Similarly, until the...

Public Expenditure (13 Feb 1990)

Mr Roger Knapman: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak. Like the hon. Member for Nottingham, North (Mr. Allen), I followed the speech of the hon. Member for Derby, South (Mrs. Beckett) with considerable interest, particularly towards the end when she said that the Opposition knew the scale of the problems and the scale of the needs. Unfortunately, that did not enable her to state the scale...

Public Expenditure (13 Feb 1990)

Mr Roger Knapman: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and it is only capitalism that could have brought that change at a reasonable social cost. That contrasts with the results of the planned Socialist economies of eastern Europe that we have seen over the past few months. I hope, in due course, to draw the attention of my hon. Friend and other hon. Members to the situation in my constituency, which is a...
