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

Mr Kenneth Warren: Many hon. Members have asked me not to withdraw my motion and to debate it again after 11.30 pm. However, I now feel obliged to withdraw it. Therefore, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: I have before me a document published this afternoon by FIMBRA, and I have no doubt that my hon. Friend would like to take it into account. It says: FIMBRA's newly-appointed Chief Executive … has praised FIMBRA's regulatory action in respect of The Levitt group Limited. Is that not a little self-congratulatory?

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am sure that my hon. Friend would want to make it clear that as yet we have not sought to send for the Governor, but that we have the right to do so.

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)

Mr Kenneth Warren: rose—

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am extremely grateful for both those interventions. One has ensured that I do not commit the Committee to something that it did not have in mind and the other has ensured that I am allowed to say what I have in mind. In reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Smith), I must say that I do not mind who makes the recommendation as long as somebody does. If my hon. Friend...

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. That is why we hope that more inspectors will be drawn from within the Department, thus keeping the learning that has been acquired at public expense within the Department. Let us consider the time that recent investigations have taken to complete. The 10 investigations in 1987 took an average of 14 months to be completed under section 177 of the Financial...

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: The hon. Lady is right. I refer to her as an honourable Lady, and I accept her comment. The Securities and Investments Board believed that it did not have much more to contribute on the matter, and I accept what it said for the moment. I am reticent to pass any comment because the Select Committee on Trade and Industry will have the pleasure of the company of members of the board as...

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for his intervention. He is perfectly correct. You will be aware, Madam Deputy Speaker, that the Committee on which I serve as Chairman has many parts to it. I am the nicest of people and I am surrounded by elegant gentlemen, like my hon. Friend, who are of a much tougher calibre than I am and who express forcefully what I feel. It is hard to hold on to my...

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

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend, who has summed up accurately the feeling of the entire Committee. I should draw to my hon. Friend's attention, however, the fact that, since the publication of our report, new brooms have swept through the Department of Trade and Industry in Victoria street, of which my hon. Friend the Minister is one, ably supported by my right hon. Friend the Secretary...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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?

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.

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,...

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...
