National Health Service (Industrial Dispute) (1 Feb 1979)

Mr Maurice Orbach: Is my right hon. Friend aware that although he said that Westminster hospital was one of those that had closed, as did The Daily Telegraph this morning, I have just returned from Westminster hospital in the last quarter of an hour? I had a full examination which began at two o'clock. [HON. MEMBERS: "By volunteers."] Not by volunteers. I was seen by consultants and nurses and was looked after...

Orders of the Day — Dividends Bill (27 Jul 1978)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I have spoken seldom in the House in the last few months because I do not propose to stand at the next General Election. I have been attending a retirement party which was given downstairs, and I came here to listen to the end of this debate. I have listened most carefully to the two lectures delivered by the hon. Members for Cirencester and Tewkesbury (Mr. Ridley) and for the City of London...

Orders of the Day — Dividends Bill (27 Jul 1978)

Mr Maurice Orbach: Really! Neither here nor anywhere else am I in the habit of answering hypothetical questions. That suggestion is a lot of rubbish. I have an income of over £1,500 a year in dividends, but I do not depend upon that because it is cut away by the taxes that are levied on it. The hon. and learned Gentleman is perfectly well aware of that. The poor nurse whom he mentions could never receive...

Miss Anna Mendleson (Parole) (14 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: As the constituency Member for Miss Mendleson and her family, I wish to congratulate my hon. Friend on his reply and to say to the right hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Mr. Whitelaw) that he was a member of—

Miss Anna Mendleson (Parole) (14 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I am sure that Mr. Speaker will interrupt me if I am out of order.

Miss Anna Mendleson (Parole) (14 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: Is the Minister aware that the right hon. Member for Penrith and The Border was a member of the Government which released Leila Khaled, who was a terrorist arrested on a plane and handed over to the Metropolitan Police? She was released by the Government of which the right hon. Gentleman was Home Secretary. In those circumstances, he is the last person in the world to raise this issue.

Miss Anna Mendleson (Parole) (14 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I thought that this was not a laughing matter. My hon. Friend will be aware that Miss Mendleson was visited by her hon. Member in Holloway Gaol on a number of occasions. I found that she was teaching illiterates there to read and write. [HON. MEMBERS: "Ask a question."] You are a silly lot of fellows.

Miss Anna Mendleson (Parole) (14 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: The last person in the world on whom I would wish to cast aspersions is a fellow countryman such as yourself, Mr. Speaker. Is my hon. Friend aware that this young lady has been teaching art to prostitutes, dope smugglers and pickpockets in prison and that her request for parole was supported by a warden, the welfare officer, her tutor, the art teacher and myself? Is it not right that she...

Orders of the Day — Rentcharges Bill (11 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I join in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Evans) on this Bill. He is a good Welshman like yourself, Mr. Speaker, and like me, and we are grateful for the way in which he presented his case. He did his best in a short space of time to present it effectively and at the same time give plenty of opportunity to other hon. Members to get this off their chests. I...

Orders of the Day — Rentcharges Bill (11 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I think that this man got scared because I put up window posters on behalf of my colleague. I did not canvass the street because it is not in my constituency. This bloke has not paid since the last election. During the election period I ran into him and he said to me, "Are you Mr. Orbach?" When I said that I was, he said that his name was Mr. Stalton, the owner of No. 324 Manchester Road. I...

Bill Presented: Rhodesia (Schoolchildren) (3 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I have been to Botswana within the last two months with a Commonwealth Parliamentary Association delegation, which met most members of the Cabinet there and visited the border with Rhodesia, where we saw refugees, both black and white, who had left Rhodesia and were heading towards the ferry to cross the Zambesi. The right hon. Member for Knutsford (Mr. Davies) talked glibly about the United...

Bill Presented: Rhodesia (Schoolchildren) (3 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: What does the hon. Member for St. Albans (Mr. Goodhew) mean by that remark?

Bill Presented: Rhodesia (Schoolchildren) (3 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: "Pathological" is a strong word, and as an ex-Chairman of the Tavistock Clinic and Vice-Chairman of Maudsley Hospital, I think I know a little more about mental pathology than does the hon. Member for St. Albans. I am accusing him not of being pathological—just of being stupid.

Bill Presented: Rhodesia (Schoolchildren) (3 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I was not going to take up the time of the Chamber for very long, because a number of hon. Members, particularly on the Government side, want to take part. The Government of Gaberones are a responsible Government and will be responsive to the representations made by the Foreign Office. I have a high regard for the British High Commissioner there and I am certain that he will not send one of...

Bill Presented: Rhodesia (Schoolchildren) (3 Feb 1977)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I want to make a serious suggestion in the same spirit as those already made. I suggest that we carry out a raid on Botswana, bring the children home to Beaconsfield and ask the hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Bell) if he will welcome them there. He represents a constituency that is named after a great anti-racialist. I am sure that the hon. and learned Gentleman, too, is an...

Question of Privilege (Motion) (17 Nov 1976)

Mr Maurice Orbach: Coward.

Question of Privilege (Motion) (17 Nov 1976)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I am delighted to withdraw it in the House, but I shall repeat it to the hon. Gentleman outside.

Orders of the Day — Housing (16 Jun 1975)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I have listened to most of the debate, and I have been enlightened in many ways. I thank Conservative Members for having made housing the topic for this Supply Day debate. They have given me an opportunity for which I have been waiting a long time—not to discuss the general national housing problem but to discuss the problem in my constituency, and perhaps to relate it to some other...

National Health Service (Industrial Action) (3 Jul 1974)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I agree with my right hon. Friend that nothing should be said to upset the delicate negotiations that are going on this afternoon, but has she seen the illuminating statement made by the Secretary of the British Medical Association this morning to the effect that private practice brings many patients to this country from abroad, which has the effect of helping our balance of trade position?...

Foreign Affairs (31 Oct 1973)

Mr Maurice Orbach: Like many other speakers I had no intention of participating in this debate. The small attendance in the House has prompted me to speak. I have been interested in many of the speeches, some of which call for comment from those of us who have been interested in foreign affairs for a considerable period. I hope that nothing I say will be emotive and shock Members or in any way disturb them. I...
