Point of Order ( 6 Mar 1997)

Mr Max Madden: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I have notified the hon. Member for Fermanagh and South Tyrone (Mr. Maginnis) of my intention to refer to him this afternoon in relation to his allegation against me last night, which appears at column 960 of Hansard, that I had invited the IRA to the House. As you will recall, Madam Speaker, the allegation was made in connection with admissions by the hon....

Prevention of Terrorism ( 5 Mar 1997)

Mr Max Madden: Further to that point of order, Madam Speaker. As I was the Member who raised this matter with you a few minutes ago, may I now ask the hon. Member for Fermanagh and South Tyrone (Mr. Maginnis) to withdraw the allegation that I at any time have invited the IRA to this place or to any other place? May I, while I am on my feet, say that I visited Holloway yesterday and met Roisin McAliskey—

Prevention of Terrorism ( 5 Mar 1997)

Mr Max Madden: Further to that point of order, Madam Speaker. Are you not going to request the hon. Member for Fermanagh and South Tyrone to withdraw the allegation clearly made against me that I at any time have invited the IRA anywhere?

Prevention of Terrorism ( 5 Mar 1997)

Mr Max Madden: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. A few moments ago, my hon. Friend the Member for Brent, East (Mr. Livingstone) alleged that a Minister had said of Roisin McAliskey, "She should have thought of that before she started bombing people." I distinctly heard the hon. Member for Torbay (Mr. Allason) making that comment. At the outset of his brief remarks, he should have either the courage to...

Business of the House (20 Feb 1997)

Mr Max Madden: May I draw the attention of the Leader of the House to early-day motion 497? [That this House notes with concern the Amnesty International Urgent Action Bulletin of 7th February that the conditions of detention of Ms R. McAliskey may amount to cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment; notes the conditions of detention of the pregnant Ms McAliskey have led to a deterioration in her physical...

Points of Order (11 Feb 1997)

Mr Max Madden: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I regret that I have not had an opportunity to give you notice of my point of order, which concerns a change of policy announced by the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox). He told me in reply to a parliamentary question: It is policy, on grounds of confidentiality, for Ministers not to...

Points of Order (16 Jan 1997)

Mr Max Madden: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I gave you notice of it a little earlier because I think it is a matter for you. I draw your attention to yesterday's Hansard, and to the fact that the Adjournment debate initiated by my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull, North (Mr. McNamara) started at 10.49 am and finished at 12.15 pm, between columns 257 and 277, and had no separate...

Business of the House (16 Jan 1997)

Mr Max Madden: May I ask the Foreign Secretary to make a statement next week about the organisation of the visa section in the British high commission in Islamabad? That will enable me to draw attention to the breathtaking incompetence shown by that department towards my constituent, Mr. Ghazahfer Ali, who was released on bail at the end of November after seven years of imprisonment without trial in Azad...

Bus Employees' Pensions (15 Jan 1997)

Mr Max Madden: First, I apologise for not being here for the beginning of the debate. That was partly due to the fact that the debate started earlier than scheduled. The debate is due to continue until 12.30 pm, and I wish to make some brief comments. Since I have been in the Chamber, I have shared the dismay and concern of other hon. Members at the attitude demonstrated by the Minister to the decisions of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Contracts (14 Jan 1997)

Mr Max Madden: As both India and Pakistan have nuclear capability and the long and unresolved conflict between the two countries over Kashmir makes the region one of the most exceptionally dangerous in the world, how does the Minister justify British sales to India of Hawk 100 aircraft, which clearly could, and probably will, be used to suppress the popular insurrection by the people of Kashmir in pursuit...

Public Interest Immunity (18 Dec 1996)

Mr Max Madden: As the Attorney-General has said that judges will remain the final arbiters in those matters, will there be any right of appeal against a judge's decision? Unless there is, yet another legal anomaly would seem to be created whereby there is no right of appeal against an individual judge's decision. Under the new arrangements, will the presumption be that Ministers will seek the advice of the...

World Trade Organisation Conference (17 Dec 1996)

Mr Max Madden: Does the President recognise that condemnation of child and bonded labour is, in many people's view, wholly insufficient? Why was not the conference prepared to propose specific action to combat that scourge, including measures to assist poor countries to help children from poor families to receive an education rather than working themselves into a premature grave? Bangladesh, for example, is...

Business of the House (14 Nov 1996)

Mr Max Madden: As it is 500 days since Keith Mangan and Paul Wells were taken hostage in Kashmir, will the Leader of the House arrange for the Foreign Secretary to make a statement next week explaining what further action the Foreign Office intends to take to try to find those two British citizens, plus the two other people taken hostage at the same time, especially as leading Kashmiri politicians have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Peace Process (14 Nov 1996)

Mr Max Madden: Does the Secretary of State agree that the Home Secretary's decision this week to repatriate further prisoners to the Republic of Ireland will be widely welcomed? In the same spirit of building confidence in the peace process in both communities, will the Secretary of State exercise the utmost compassion in maximising home leave before Christmas and new year?

Business of the House ( 7 Nov 1996)

Mr Max Madden: With the peace process hanging by a thread, will the Leader of the House persuade the Prime Minister to make a statement to the House next week about two matters—first, about how quickly Sinn Fein would be allowed to enter all-party talks should there be a further cessation of violence by the IRA, and secondly, about confidence-building measures, especially regarding the treatment of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Kashmir (British Hostages) (30 Oct 1996)

Mr Max Madden: Will the Minister confirm that well-known Kashmiri political leaders have condemned hostage taking and have demanded the immediate release of hostages alive and well? Those concerns have been reinforced by numerous public demonstrations by the people of Kashmir against hostage taking. Will the Minister explain why several offers by Kashmiri political leaders to mediate and to attempt to...

Asylum (Designated Countries) (15 Oct 1996)

Mr Max Madden: If a contradiction of what the hon. and learned Member for Burton (Sir I. Lawrence) has just said is necessary, we need only remind ourselves that, as we speak, preparations are under way in west London to open a tent city to provide temporary accommodation to asylum seekers—including many children—who are now so destitute that they have no means of survival. That fact has been brought to...

Asylum (Designated Countries) (15 Oct 1996)

Mr Max Madden: The unit would advise the Government on human rights issues around the world.

Asylum (Designated Countries) (15 Oct 1996)

Mr Max Madden: I strongly suggest that the House should establish a Select Committee on human rights, so that it can advise the next Labour Government on human rights issues. The order is the latest disgraceful instalment of restrictive legislation of enacted by this Government to deter those who have well-founded claims for asylum from seeking haven in this country. It will be part of the political...

Asylum (Designated Countries) (15 Oct 1996)

Mr Max Madden: The Minister has mentioned the home country assessment. Will she say how long those documents have been in preparation? Will she confirm or deny that reputable human rights organisations based in this country have been consulted about the views on human rights—particularly in India and Pakistan—expressed in those documents?
