Public Accounts (1 May 1985)

Mr George Park: It was inevitable and right that the Public Accounts Committee should investigate what has been described several times today as one of the gravest cases of the misuse of public resources to come before us for many years. But, given the circumstances, it was essentially a stirring of dead ashes, with the added ingredient of Northern Ireland, which in addition to all its other troubles has the...

Public Accounts (1 May 1985)

Mr George Park: I respect my right hon. Friend's sincerity, but I should tell him from my experience of 25 years in the motor industry that no one would have told him anything detrimental to De Lorean, because they wanted shot of him. I am afraid that my right hon. Friend was hoodwinked. I am not here to pick holes in former Ministers or officials. They approached the matter normally, as though it were a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Honda Car Company (27 Mar 1985)

Mr George Park: Inward investment is bound to be welcome, but is the Minister at all concerned about the loss of design, research and development capacity in industry?

West Midlands (15 Mar 1985)

Mr George Park: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the science park is on a 24-acre site? Ten acres have been developed. As the hon. Gentleman said, the park is practically full.

West Midlands (15 Mar 1985)

Mr George Park: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick) for giving us the opportunity to discuss the west midlands once again. I had not realised that the Minister would reveal his ambitions to be a Gipsy Petulengro and give us answers before he had heard the questions. I suspect that media coverage has much to do with that. In previous debates on the west midlands...

Oral Answers to Questions — European Community: European Council (Voting) (20 Feb 1985)

Mr George Park: Does not the system of qualified voting on the budgetary provision end any effective United Kingdom say in the amount of money spent on agriculture, and will this not be even more so when Spain and Portugal join the Community?

Water Authorities (Return on Assets) (7 Feb 1985)
