Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Youth Training ( 3 May 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Will the young people be trained exclusively in military subjects? If so, would it not be better to call the programme a recruitment scheme rather than a youth employment scheme? If the young people are to be taught trades, what proportion of military resources will be devoted to the scheme and taken away from training our soldiers? Why did the Minister not consult the trade unions to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cyprus ( 9 Mar 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that we agree with the Government that any solution to the Cyprus problem must be agreed between the communities on the island, and that communal talks are the best way of going about that? Is the Minister further aware that a great and growing number of Greek-speaking Cypriots regard the intercommunal talks as a block to progress on the Cyprus problem? Will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Turkey (Academic Freedom) ( 9 Mar 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: While we all appreciate the right hon. Gentleman's noble Friend the Minister of State's going to Turkey and falling asleep in the middle of a lecture on Anglo-Turkish diplomatic relations, is not something more active required of the Government in the light of what the Turkish Government are doing? Turkey is a member of NATO—in the same alliance as we are—and therefore should not Turkey...

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Is it not dangerous for the hon. Gentleman to argue that my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley) cannot understand how the Metropolitan police work because he is the Member for Sparkbrook when the Home Secretary is the right hon. Member for Penrith and The Border? His point might strengthen our argument for a local police force.

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: I agree wholeheartedly with the hon. Member for Paddington (Mr. Wheeler) that we should bear in mind the contribution to the reduction in petty crime that the proper design of council estates can make. We are all aware of council estates in our constituencies that are conducive to low morale and are hotbeds of petty crime and vandalism. We all know other estates where the residents have...

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Yes. In the meantime, we had to pay the price because the Metropolitan police were not sufficiently aware of the problem to take the appropriate action. When it came to the time of the hon. Gentleman's by-election, the police had learnt some of the lessons from the troubles in Lewisham and were beginning to adapt. Even if the heart of the Metropolitan police is in the right place, under their...

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: That also demonstrates the rigidity of the Metropolitan police in dealing with these problems and the difficulty that Lewisham faced in getting its case over to the Metropolitan police force in its present form.

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: I should not try to deny the truth of what the Home Secretary has said. I am simply talking about 1977 and 1980, when Lewisham tried to get its case across to the Metropolitan police force as it is organised at present and failed to do so. As the Home Secretary said, there has been a change of policy in the past two or three years. It has taken six years to achieve something that we would...

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: We are now getting to a hypothetical point. I was referring only to what happened in Lewisham and the time that it took to get a response from the Metropolitan police on these important issues. What happens with regard to one march may be a case for individual judgment. Nevertheless, that judgment would be much better informed if we had a police force in London that was much more responsive...

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Consultation will require money. There is no doubt about that. I hope that in these matters the Government will adopt a more tolerant attitude towards the poor people of London than they have on education and local government.

Policing in the Metropolis (28 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: The Government have been prepared to afford substantial sums of money for an increase in police pay. I do not see why they should not be prepared to meet the costs of consultation as well. The Home Secretary can take full credit for this. The police are now well paid, and they will say so. When I used to deal with industrial relations matters, I always thought that everyone was overpaid and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Republic of Ireland ( 9 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that Dr. Garret FitzGerald has always tended to adopt a responsible attitude towards the problems of Northern Ireland? Will the Government therefore ensure that any initiative that he puts forward will receive a positive response in that context?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq-Iran War (Ceasefire) ( 9 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that the war has now reached a stalemate and that the longer it continues the greater the danger that something might happen to destabilise the entire area? Has not the time come for Britain, with other interested countries, to approach the combatants with a view to starting negotiations towards peace?

Orders of the Day — Cohabitation ( 4 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: Will the Minister comment on a situation in which a Miss or Mrs. Barnett moved in with Mrs. Peirce and the "fairness" that would arise from that?

Orders of the Day — Cohabitation ( 4 Feb 1983)

Mr Roland Moyle: I wish to draw the attention of the House to the case of Mrs. Amy Peirce as it affects the cohabitation rule. I do so not in order that the Minister may move to resolve her troubles, because that option was removed at an early stage by the reference of Mrs. Peirce's case to an appeals tribunal under social security legislation which has decided against her. Indeed, even as we are debating the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (22 Dec 1982)

Mr Roland Moyle: How can the right hon. Gentleman say that he wants the PLO to adopt a constructive attitude towards peace negotiations when, as a result of the bungling and incompetent interference of the Prime Minister in the process, he is not allowed to talk to an Arab League delegation that includes a representative of the PLO? This is despite the fact that some of his Ministers have met PLO...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Lebanon (22 Dec 1982)

Mr Roland Moyle: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Opposition believe that the world should support the Lebanese Government's attempt to restore their sovereignty over the whole of Lebanese territory? We welcome the decision of the Government to make a contribution to the international peacekeeping force. We also believe that by sending a small operational unit, rather than a training team, the...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1982)

Mr Roland Moyle: During our debate on the Consolidated Fund Bill on 29 July, my hon. Friends the Members for Battersea, South (Mr. Dubs) and for Crewe (Mrs. Dunwoody) and I raised with the Government the anxieties that were beginning to be felt in London about the non-application of the Acheson report. Since then, that anxiety has increased not only among Labour Members of Parliament but among others,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Jordan (24 Nov 1982)

Mr Roland Moyle: The right hon. Gentleman referred to the importance of withdrawing foreign forces from Lebanon. Does he agree that a key factor in this is the international peacekeeping force there? What response have Her Majesty's Government made to the request that a British contingent be sent to the Lebanon to take part in the peacekeeping process?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestine Liberation Organisation (Lebanon) (24 Nov 1982)

Mr Roland Moyle: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that the problem to which my hon. Friend the Member for Thurrock (Dr. McDonald) drew attention is another aspect of the presence of foreign forces in Lebanon and demonstrates the importance of international peacekeeping? While the problem is being considered, will he bear in mind that whereas a training mission from this country might well be smaller than a...
