Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade Balance (11 Mar 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is appalling that the Opposition whinge on about the failure of this country to export, when we know that what we need from both sides of the House is unanimity to help exporters and not complaints about them?

European Economic Area (17 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am grateful to the hon. Member for referring to our report. However, I assure him that the report was unanimous, and included the full support of a member of the Liberal Democrats.

European Economic Area (17 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: indicated assent.

European Economic Area (17 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: The Select Committee on Trade and Industry welcomes this opportunity for a debate on the Floor of the House. We recommended such a debate when we studied trade with EFTA nations in 1990, and I thank my hon. Friend the Minister and my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House for having the good sense to allow hon. Members the chance to debate the agreement before a decision is taken on the...

European Economic Area (17 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am very glad that I gave way to my hon. Friend the Member for Crawley (Mr. Soames), because he makes a very sound point. The conservation measures that we saw in Iceland were of a world calibre of leadership. The question that occurs to me is, what is the advantage to the Spaniards in terms of the European market of scouring the fish stocks of, for example, Iceland, when they will merely...

Rechar (17 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend accept that I warmly welcome the statement that there are no more problems now on either side of the channel regarding the RECHAR distribution? Can he tell me, however, to whom the money will be paid? Will it be paid to a Government Department, or direct to the recipient who is due to receive it? Can we be assured that there will be absolutely no delay in disbursing...

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) (6 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I declare an interest: I was in industry for 20 years, and I have been in Parliament for 20 years. As I listened to the remarkable, fiery speech of the hon. Member for Dunfermline, East (Mr. Brown), an amazing thought came to me. I was reminded of a phrase that is often heard in industry: he passed through at supersonic speed, generating much heat but no light. I presume that the hon....

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) (6 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Well, seeing it's you.

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) (6 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am not so sure how successful the right hon. Gentleman really was. I know that he meant well, but I remember that he started the Inmos programme and completely failed to invest the amount that was necessary. He made it possible for the company to set up its headquarters in the United States. That seemed to have been forgotten when the Leader of the Opposition intervened earlier. Let us...

Opposition Day: Industry (Government Policies) (6 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: With great respect, not because I am a Conservative, but because of my experience in industry, I would stick to our policy rather than that of the Opposition. I have talked about planting the seedcorn and about training. The initiatives must come particularly from industry to make it more worth while to invest. The problems of industry will not be solved simply by throwing money at them....

President Yeltsin and UN Security Council (3 Feb 1992)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his robust leadership of the United Nations last week. Was he able to discuss with President Yeltsin the problems of the old Soviet bureaucracy in Russia and the way in which it is inhibiting the ability of the people of Russia to receive the aid that they deserve? Will he consider setting up in Moscow a unit composed of people from British industry,...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: The Economy (7 Nov 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: It is an honour to follow the right hon. Member for Bethnal Green and Stepney (Mr. Shore). I may not agree with many parts of his speech, but it was in the finest traditions of the House. The Conservative party is lucky that he is not displaying his intellect on Labour's Front Bench. The Labour party needs him badly, even if we do not agree with him. I hope to be able to deal with some of his...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: The Economy (7 Nov 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I endorse my hon. Friend's remark. We are in a very competitive world, and where the Government are a catalyst, they must play the part that only Government can. I am not an interventionist, but there is no question but that there will be a problem with ECGD and Iraq. I am certain that terrible losses will suddenly be revealed in trading with that country. However, the ECGD with its best...

Property Services Agency (10 Jul 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Is my right hon. Friend aware that at the substantial PSA establishment in my constituency staff are worried that, during the 18 months, no real decision has been taken about their future? Will he do all that he can to get ahead with privatisation and not waste time having to talk about it in the House?

Orders of the Day — Select Committees (Membership) (18 Mar 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: With great respect, I recommend that the hon. Gentleman read the report. Its recommendations are very different from what he says.

Transatlantic Air Routes (11 Mar 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Following that question, may I ask my right hon. and learned Friend for clarification on the fifth freedom in the United States of America, because, de facto, the Americans will have it with this arrangement within the European Community? I welcome the arrangement overall, but there may be an imbalance there. In the light of his open skies policy at Heathrow, which was announced last week,...

Air Europe (11 Mar 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. and learned Friend accept that, although I have enormous admiration for his stewardship of his Department, I find it difficult to accept his dismissal of any charges against the Civil Aviation Authority? Can he please tell the House when he was first made aware that the group running Air Europe had debts of £480 million which it could not service?

Telecommunications Policy (5 Mar 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My right hon. Friend's statement should be widely welcomed on both sides of the House. He has recognised that Mercury and British Telecom are marketing their services on a world stage and that that is most welcome to the British telecommunications industry. However, may I remind my right hon. Friend of a question which I addressed to him when he announced his review, which I fear slipped his...

Opposition Day: Recession in Industry (30 Jan 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I apologise to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and to the House because I have a throat infection. No doubt it will be welcomed on both sides of the House, as it means that my speech will be much shorter that it would otherwise be. If it is terminated abruptly, I am sure that my hon. Friends will, as usual, take up the threads of what I was saying. As an industrialist, I declare an interest....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 1991)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Bearing in mind the very successful meeting that I understand my right hon. Friend to have had this week with the visiting Foreign Minister from Latvia, may I ask whether he will use the occasion to condemn before the House the Stalinist repression that has returned to the inventory of Gorbachev and the Government of the Soviet Union and get the whole of the west to condemn the abuse of human...
