Orders of the Day — Property Services Agency and Crown Suppliers Bill: Replication of Property Services Agency Functions (12 Feb 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my hon. Friend the Minister tell the House exactly what will happen after privatisation if replication is allowed? I want to be sure that my constituents have the right after privatisation to be allowed to compete properly and fairly without having set against them an in-house programme and all the problems of single action tenders that can arise through Departments giving the jobs to...

Orders of the Day — Property Services Agency and Crown Suppliers Bill: Transfer of Property Services Agency and Crown Suppliers (12 Feb 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Many of the matters about which I was going to voice concern have already been raised by the hon. Member for Hartlepool (Mr. Leadbitter), with whom I share considerable anxiety about security. If I had been on the Standing Committee, I should have tried to obtain more detail than seems to have been obtained—but from what I have read of the report of the Committee, I am confident that my...

Orders of the Day — Property Services Agency and Crown Suppliers Bill: Transferred Staff (12 Feb 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My hon. Friend the Minister well knows the many concerns that I have expressed over several months about procedures for the privatisation which, in principle, I support. I hope that he does not think that I am being too hard on him when I say that as this is not the first privatisation by the Government, I would have expected to see a rule book to which he and my right hon. Friend the ...

Beach Pollution (Sussex) (22 Feb 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: While I appreciate the action that is being taken, about which my hon. Friend has told the House, has he consulted his right hon. Friend the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food about the potential danger of pollution of the valuable fish stocks on the Sussex coast? Rather than just relying on people walking up and down the seashores looking for canisters, would it not be possible to...

East-West Relations (22 Feb 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: You force me, Madam Deputy Speaker, to speak faster than usual. First I should like to praise my right hon. Friend the Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath) and the right hon. Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey) on their remarkable speeches. However, I am afraid that they omitted to mention the way in which the leaderships of eastern Europe perceive our Prime Minister. They believe...

East-West Relations (22 Feb 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am assured by the Soviet embassy that it is actively seeking credit from the United Kingdom. I hope that my right hon. Friend will be willing to facilitate anything that will enable it to obtain from our industry that which it so urgently need and that which it has been offered by West Germany.

House of Fraser (7 Mar 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome the publication of the report at last, but may I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to chapter 25, dealing with lessons to be learned, in which it says: the arrangements for deciding … a controversial bid put intolerable strain on the OFT and the DTI who found themselves obliged to perform a role for which they were not equipped"? Who will guard the public against these crooks?...

Business of the House (8 Mar 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Delighted as I am to acknowledge my right hon. and learned Friend's acceptance of the work of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry on company investigations, the terms of reference of the Committee do not include, nor are they intended to include, the study of any particular company and its problems. As I feel sure that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry...

Nuclear Trigger Devices (Iraq) (29 Mar 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the coup effected by the Customs and Excise in London, which the whole world will applaud. However, there are many participants in this unsavoury act who should be brought to account. It is worrying that West Germany, China, France and the United States are involved. Will he consider extending the COCOM net, which already exists for some of those...

Gun Components (Iraq) (18 Apr 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Is my right hon. Friend satisfied with the co-ordination standards between Customs and Excise and his Department? Secondly, while I have no truck whatsoever with the horrendous regime in Iraq, what evidence does he have in his Department from those engaged in oil refinery design that the material and the tubes in question are not for the application intended? Thirdly, what information has he,...

Mr. Paul Ashwell (23 Apr 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend the Minister make it clear to the Greek Government that no charges of any kind have been preferred against anyone in this country in respect of the gun in question? Furthermore, the House has not been presented with any proof that the transported items are in any way connected with armaments.

USSR (Prime Minister's Visit) (12 Jun 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: We on this side of the House welcome my right hon. Friend's statement of her success in the Soviet Union. Can she tell us whether General Yazov understood as much as the political leadership of Russia understands that the Warsaw pact is dead and that he and his generals must start reducing their armaments promptly?

British Aerospace (28 Jun 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Now that the Commission has given its decision, may we hope that both sides of the House will recognise the high value to this country of the Rover and British Aerospace enterprises? Will my right hon. Friend make available in the Library of the House in its entirety the correspondence that he has received from the Commission? May I ask him, not as Chairman of the Select Committee on Trade...

Financial Services and the Single European Market (15 Oct 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State on his first speech in his new post from the Dispatch Box. Whatever the stupidity of the 2 per cent., he is admired by 100 per cent. of Conservative Members, who believe that he is the man for the job. I declare a formal interest in the debate. I doubt whether any hon. Member with outside interests is not affected by the developments...

Financial Services and the Single European Market (15 Oct 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My hon. Friend is always at my right hand with the apposite words. I hope that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State will recognise that, in all discussions and negotiations in the EC, we must not merely focus on what Brussels says. British companies must operate across the world. The threat from Tokyo and New York to the acknowledged supremacy of London is constant and growing. My...

Financial Services and the Single European Market (15 Oct 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I have taken note of my hon. Friend's letter and I have brought it to the Committee's attention. We have a busy schedule, but my hon. Friend has reinforced his concern and we shall consider it as we come to our new programme in the month ahead. Britain has over 330 banks of various types and they are almost unanimous, as are many other organisations, in that they are pleased with the...

Telecommunications (13 Nov 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that, in the course of the consultations, the office of the regulator and the efficiency with which that office carries out its task will be taken into account and be open to discussion? May I also be assured that the regulatory system that is introduced after the consultations will in no way debilitate the ability of Mercury and British Telecom, because of...

Information Technology (12 Dec 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish first to declare an interest as I have been involved in the computer industry for many years. Unfortunately, that interest has never led me successfully to obtain any money from any of the programmes, so perhaps I can speak objectively—not that I would not have wished to do so anyway. My experience of watching other people have a go has led me to conclude that people should not have...

Estimates Day: Companies and Financial Services (13 Dec 1990)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I beg to move, That Class IV, Vote 2 be reduced by £10,000 in respect of Subhead K1 (consumer and investor protection).The Select Committee on Trade and Industry has carried out extensive investigations into the way in which investigators work in policing business standards. Rising at this hour of the afternoon, I almost feel that I should seek the leave of the House. This is the second...

Estimates Day: Companies and Financial Services (13 Dec 1990)
