Schedule 6: Civil Aviation (25 Jul 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Conservative Members should remember that the objective which the Tory Government gave Lord King was to line up BA for take-off into private ownership. To achieve that, he has delivered, and has had to deliver, a company the quality of which will attract people to invest in air transport when, historically, such investment has been glamorous rather than profitable. BA and Lord King have...

Schedule 6: Civil Aviation (25 Jul 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My hon. Friend is right and I am grateful to him for making that intervention. In conclusion, I draw the attention of the House to the statement in paragraph 12, in which the CAA says that economies of scale and in operating costs may not exist beyond a certain limited threshold. That rather lines up with my hon. Friend's intervention. It makes that statement immediately qualifies it and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: US Aircraft (Chemical Weapons) (24 Jul 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my hon. Friend accept that, as one of the parliamentary party that yesterday had the opportunity to visit Porton Down, I feel that it is good to see the strenuous and correct efforts being made by this country to combat the tremendous threat that we are suffering from the Soviet Union, which has 300,000 tonnes of chemical weapons mounted against us?

Mr. Umaru Dikko (Abduction) (9 Jul 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Has my right hon. and learned Friend asked the Israeli Government for information about their citizens who were involved, bearing in mind that those men were of military age and that their full records would be available? Secondly, would he like to give the Israeli Government an opportunity to assure the world and the House that there is no collusion between Israel and Nigeria in this kidnapping?

European Council (Fontainebleau) (27 Jun 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: May I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the sterling progress that she achieved at Fontainebleau? Was there any discussion of the scandalous sale of cheap food to the totalitarian regimes of Eastern Europe, when it would be so much better to give the poorer people of western Europe and the Third world the opportunity to buy it?

Opposition Day: Inmos (21 Jun 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish to declare an interest as a practitioner in information technology on both sides of the Atlantic. In debates on science and technology in the House over the years one thing is certain—the terms of reference always tend to be the same. Indeed, we can say that over a period we have not as a nation been able … fully to harness the resources of skill and ability we should be able to...

Opposition Day: Inmos (21 Jun 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am just coming to that very point. We must retain our courage to hold on to this company at this critical time, to see it through to the success that it can achieve. That is most important. One vital factor for a science/people-based company such as INMOS is that we should not leave its leadership with the uncertainty that is enveloping it now. That is bad. While the work force and...

Opposition Day: Inmos (21 Jun 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My right hon. Friend is a dear friend of mine, and if he has not got information that the company is worth £100 million, he should change his advisers.

Opposition Day: Inmos (21 Jun 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My right hon. Friend is skilled in these matters. I said that the control of the company should remain in the United Kingdom. That does not preclude outside investment in part, but the control must remain here. That company is worth £100 million, not only in terms of its current ability but in terms of its prospects. We must look to the future of companies in businesses such as this. I end...

British Leyland (Corporate Plan) (22 May 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Did my right hon. Friend's Department receive any proposals from British Leyland to save Bathgate, or did his Department make any proposals to BL? Will he assure the House that there is no chance of Jaguar falling into foreign hands?

Prayers: Engagements (3 May 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend, in her gallant and worthy attempts to roll back the state's industrial frontiers, accept the fact that the appalling argument between the steel men and the miners' leaders is one where the suicidal stupidity of the miners' leaders is hallmarked by Mick McGahey's remarks yesterday, when he said that by closing down industry he would not lose jobs? Is not the conflict...

Libyan People's Bureau (Shooting Incident) (25 Apr 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. and learned Friend consider the fact that, next Sunday, when the Libyans emerge from the bureau, there will be two categories of people—those with diplomatic immunity and those with none? Is there any reason why he could not instruct the Metropolitan Police to investigate, search and question those who do not have diplomatic immunity?

Opposition Day: House of Commons (Services) (21 Mar 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I rise to support the motion, having heard the magnificient speech by the right hon. Member for Down, South (Mr. Powell). I thought that I had left him behind some years ago in computer technology, in which I must declare an interest. He rightly says that what is happening in Washington and Ottawa is what we must learn to avoid and perhaps learn from. It is not sufficient that we should stay...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cruise Missiles (13 Mar 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my hon. Friend make it clear to the House that cruise missiles are not a first-strike weapon and that NATO does not have a first-strike nuclear policy?

Aerospace Industry (1 Mar 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I applaud the Secretary of State's announcement. Will he tell the House why the combined public and private investment expected from this country for the A320 does not give us anything like the percentage of participation that the investment of the same sum of money gives the Germans in the A320 project? Will he be so kind as to tell us what form of public accountability will be available on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Electronics Industry (29 Feb 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend consider the tremendous incentive that his Department could give to the indigenous British electronics industry if he could encourage his colleagues at the Departments of Transport and of Defence to give special weighting to the advantages of buying British rather than importing?

Sellafield (Discharges) (14 Feb 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: While welcoming the Secretary of State's announcement and applauding the technical prowess of the British nuclear industry, may I ask him to give an assurance that he will not be dazzled into believing that accidents can never happen again? Will he say that he appreciates that quality and safety are as much attitudes of mind in management as the provision of wonderful tools to control the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Experimental Aircraft Project (14 Feb 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: asked the Secretary of State for Defence what are the costs and employment penalties to the United Kingdom of international collaboration on the development of the experimental aircraft project.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Experimental Aircraft Project (14 Feb 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: While thanking my hon. Friend for his statement on the progress of the project, may I ask him to consider that industry is reporting that proposals being drafted and tested mean that this country will be paying twice as much as it needs for half the number of jobs that we would get if we did the job on our own? Has not the time come to study the way in which our collaboration organisation...

Sellafield (Discharges) (21 Dec 1983)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome the candour with which the Secretary of State deployed the serious facts that have emerged from Sellafield. Will he ask the agencies responsible to examine the apparent magnification effect, which is 10 to 20 times greater than that in the sea at present, which results from radioactivity coming ashore through sea spray? I hope that the Secretary of State will encourage the agency to...
