Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Motorways (Delays) (16 Jan 1989)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Given that only this morning, about 5,000 vehicles were locked on the M25 for more than a hour and were unable to move, does my right hon.

Mr Kenneth Warren: I enter this field of combat with some trepidation. I sensed that my hon.

Member for Stalybridge and Hyde (Mr. Pendry) has become a poet in the later years of our parliamentary acquaintance. The Gracious...

Articulated Vehicles (14 Nov 1988)

Orders of the Day — Rover Group (14 Jul 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Although I appreciate that Mr. Sutherland was doing the job for which he is empowered, does my right hon. and learned Friend consider that the time has come to decide whether the fact that the commissioners have such power should be brought to the attention of the Council of Ministers?

European Council (Hanover) (30 Jun 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I congratulate my right hon.

Member for Coventry, South-East in the problems faced by his constituents, but I ask him to reflect on the fact that the job opportunities that his...

Adjournment (Spring) (25 May 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish to address my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House on the difficult subject of the relationship between the British Broadcasting Corporation and the world which watches and listens to it.
