Mr Raphael Tuck: Is my hon. Friend aware that when the British Forces pull out of the island next March there will be a big formal ceremony of handing over to the civil authorities? In view of the valiant stand which the island made on our behalf during the war, would it not be diplomatic to have a member of the Royal Family there at the time of the ceremony?

Home Office Affairs (6 Nov 1978)

Home Office Affairs (6 Nov 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I hope that the hon. and learned Member for South Fylde (Mr. Gardner) will forgive me if I do not follow the same line of debate as he did.

Mr Raphael Tuck: Is not all the resurfacing due to the fact that we are importing 32-ton juggernauts from the EEC? Is there any truth in the horrifying rumour that the Minister intends to allow 42-ton vehicles to come into this country? They will reduce our roads to rubble.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Railway Commuter Organisations (5 Jul 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: My right hon. Friend said that "British Rail must make both ends met". Is he aware that in 1977 it realised a surplus of £68 million?

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (4 Jul 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: If fish is mentioned, will the Minister make it clear to the EEC that the British Government consider that the offer of 30 per cent. of the fish catch for this country is derisory, since our waters contain 60 per cent. of that catch?

Business of the House (29 Jun 1978)

European Community Council of Ministers (Fisheries) (22 Jun 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Is my right hon. Friend aware that he deserves the congratulations and thanks of the whole House and country for the superb stand he has taken in Europe? Indeed, he is one of the best Ministers of Agriculture we have ever had.

Mr Raphael Tuck: Has my right hon.

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Public Accountability of British Rail (17 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I wonder why a song and dance is made about British Rail's productivity, when its report for 1977 shows that its productivity has increased over the years. Further, it compares favourable with European experience. More important, British Rail starts with a handicap and at a disadvantage compared with road transport. Road transport in effect receives a large subsidy from the Government...
