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...

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?...

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.

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

Barlow Clowes (19 Dec 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: When did my right hon. Friend first hear about the problems of Barlow Clowes, and was he informed earlier by any other Department of State?

European Community (Fisheries) (14 Dec 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: The amendment moved by the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Wallace) does not appear to seek to divide the House, but rather to clarify matters and to bring extra views to the House, which all hon. Members will value. What is remarkable about fishing is that it is the one industry in Britain that unites hon. Members on both sides of the House. The eastern part of the Channel, with...

Rover Group plc (30 Nov 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Does my right hon. Friend accept that the openness of his declaration is welcome? Will he further accept that as Chairman of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, which last year conducted extensive inquiries into the purchase of Rover by British Aerospace, I would have found it helpful if the memorandum had been submitted to the Committee in confidence. With regret, I find unacceptable...

Business of the House (30 Nov 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Further to the question by my hon. Friend the Member for Tiverton (Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop), may I press my right hon. and learned Friend harder on the subject of the ECGD policy which the Government are to announce? Bearing in mind the correspondence that I have had with him and with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, will he give an assurance that, at the...

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I shall draw the attention of the House to the points that need answers and explanations. I regret that my hon. Friend the Member for Torridge and Devon, West (Miss Nicholson) has misinterpreted the report. She was the only hon. Member who was not in step, and I suggest that it would be a good idea to look at our recommendation 51, which suggests that IT matters should be dealt with at...

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I declare an interest in the subject for debate, having been associated with the information technology industry since before entering Parliament. Our reason for selecting this subject stems from a decision in December 1987 to inquire into information technology. It was in particular the hon. Member for Warrington, North (Mr. Hoyle), who apologises for not being able to be with us, who...

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am most grateful for that support from the chairman of the parliamentary information technology committee which does so much useful work on behalf of the House and the industry. We have had tussles with the DTI before on tin and on Westland, when we held inquiries, but in general it may surprise the House to know that we reached broad agreement on the proposals that we made on British...

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her intervention, and especially for the information about the Ministry of Defence. When the Committee asked it how many computer workstations it had, its first response was to tell us that it did not know. Secondly, the Minister told us that it could not give us the information because it was secret. I was inclined to think——

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: If my hon. Friend will forgive me, I shall proceed with my speech. I am sure that she will be able to catch the eye of the Chair later in the debate. As I have said, I am delighted to have the information about the Ministry of Defence to which she drew our attention. I still feel, however, that it did not know how many computer workstations it had. I accept my hon. Friend's argument about...

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I hope that my hon. Friend will forgive me if I choose to continue with my speech. I am sure that she will catch the eye of the Chair in due course.

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I give way to my hon. Friend.

Estimates Day: Information Technology (6 Jul 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: With respect, it has not. It does not allow for the sort of communication systems that will be required in the next decade in Britain and throughout the rest of Europe and the western world. The fact is that it is not a wide band system. I shall be more than delighted to give my hon. Friend a private lecture on the subject on another occasion. I hope that she will accept for the moment that...
