Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (Engagements) (11 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Will my right hon. Friend take time off to broadcast to the nation and explain to it that the Conservative Opposition are so narked by his success in pulling this country out of the morass in which he found it when he took office that their leader is dragging a red herring across the trail? She is blowing up an issue to five, six or 10 times its normal size and making an election issue out of...

Business of the House (11 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I echo the remarks of the hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Sir J. Rodgers). As my right hon. Friend knows, I was unsuccessful in raising the matter yesterday under a Standing Order No. 9 application. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it seems extraordinary that six delegates were not paired when there are 12 members of the delegation and six of them were obviously paired? Will he make some...

European Community (Milk Marketing Boards) (10 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 9, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, the fact that six Members of Parliament were prevented last Monday evening from voting on a crucial matter in the EEC by reason of the necessity of their being in the House of Commons for the vote on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Hospital Nursing Staff (9 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied with the level of nursing staff at hospitals.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Hospital Nursing Staff (9 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Is my right hon. Friend aware that staffing levels are falling so dangerously that one hospital is refusing to admit patients because it is concerned for their safety? Why are hospitals allowed to employ only so many nurses when at the last count there were at least 5,000 unemployed qualified nurses in this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Freight (3 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Would it not help the transfer of freight from road to rail if heavy lorries were forced to pay the true cost of the wear that they impose on the roads? When will that happen?

Privileges (2 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I was interested in what the right hon. Member for Cambridgeshire (Mr. Pym) said about the suggestion of the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Mr. Maudling). I tried to intervene at the time, but was unable to do so. That suggestion is interesting, but it has a great flaw. Assuming for the moment—without wishing to pass any strictures upon the suggestion—that it is desirable in the...

Privileges (2 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I was suggesting nothing of the kind. That is another matter entirely. But there is nothing to prevent a Member from saying what he pleases, because it is the undoubted privilege of this House. This liberty, however, is modified by a rule or convention of the House that when a matter is sub judice or awaiting adjudication nothing shall be said about it. If the House of Commons were to extend...

Privileges (2 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: That may not always be so.

Privileges (2 May 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I was not suggesting that the question of enlarging the rules about mentioning anybody's name should be sent to the Committee of Privileges. I was merely suggesting that it should be considered because it would have obviated the difficulties in which the House is now placed.

Business of the House (27 Apr 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Is my right hon. Friend aware that many of us are perturbed at the news that Japan, far from keeping her word to curb the export of cars to the United Kingdom, has increased them? Is is possible to have a debate on this subject? In default of that, would my right hon. Friend try to persuade the Minister to come to the House and tell us what he proposes to do about it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (26 Apr 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Am I not right in thinking that neither the West Bank nor the Gaza Strip is the recognised territory of any sovereign State but that both are part of the Palestine Mandate, an international trust, and, therefore, subject to negotiations as anticipated by Resolution 242, which requires changes to provide secure and recognised borders?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Council of Ministers (20 Apr 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: When my right hon. Friend meets his counterparts, will he draw their attention to the fact that the Australian Prime Minister, who was originally a supporter of the EEC, has now called it a narrow, self-interested trading group, seeking to make the rest of the world dance to its tune, and has pointed out that Australian exports of food to the EEC in the last four years have declined by 80 per...

Business of the House (20 Apr 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Would my right hon. Friend be kind enough to ensure that the date and duration of every parliamentary recess is given to the House at the earliest possible moment, because if it is to be delayed until the last moment, many people, particularly those with children, will be inconvenienced, because either they have to make arrangements which are nullified later when the date is given or they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Vehicle Excise Duty (5 Apr 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: If we are to have a system of licensing, why not give it teeth? Why not increase the penalties, with mandatory disqualification for one year where a motorist goes for more than four weeks without a licence?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Roads (White Paper) (5 Apr 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Is it not essential that these bypasses and relief roads be built as quickly as possible, because we are getting more and more juggernauts from Europe which are ruining our wads, not paying their full track costs and unfairly competing with the railways?

North Sea Oil (21 Mar 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Is my right hon. Friend aware that Labour Members are glad that he has noted that the Leader of the Opposition, while paying lip service to investment, brushes the whole thing aside by demanding that all the money be spent on a reduction of taxes? We hope that he will never be deflected from his course by that sweet, siren, seductive voice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Butter and Lamb (Imports) (16 Mar 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Although I appreciate my right hon. Friend's efforts, does he not feel that those efforts will probably be blocked by the EEC? Are the New Zealanders satisfied with the cavalier fashion in which they have been brushed off? After all, they fought for us in two world wars.

Business of the House (9 Mar 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: As my right hon. Friend will be aware, many of us are a little apprehensive at the recent announcement that the Government propose to have talks with Spain on the future of Gibraltar. Is my right hon. Friend able to give us any indication when we shall be able to discuss this vital issue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices and Consumer Protection: Retail Price Index (6 Mar 1978)

Mr Raphael Tuck: My right hon. Friend and the Chairman of the Price Commission are to be congratulated on what they have done about tea, but is my right hon. Friend aware that when, due to certain circumstances, the price of a commodity rises, when those circumstances end prices should come down? Is he aware that prices still remain high in such circumstances and force up the index? What does he intend to do...
