Common Fisheries Policy (31 Jan 1983)

Mr Raymond Mawby: The hon. Member for Caithness and Sutherland (Mr. Maclennan) made some important points, the most realistic of which was that he regarded the agreement with qualified enthusiasm. If the Minister can get the hon. Gentleman to go that far he has done well. Naturally, the Opposition seek to create dispute. I can understand that in light of the Labour party's general view, about which we read in...

Ways and Means: Tobacco Products (No. 2) (6 Jul 1981)

Mr Raymond Mawby: We read many medical reports that suggest that anything that we eat or drink is bad for us.
