Property Services Agency (25 May 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Much as I applaud the management changes that my right hon. Friend has proposed today, will he, following his answer to the last question, make sure that the staff understand their forward terms and conditions of employment so that we avoid the turmoil that we are now experiencing on the privatisation of the Crown Suppliers?

Rowntree plc (10 May 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I recognise that the Office of Fair Trading needs time, but may I encourage my right hon. and learned Friend to get the director general to burn a little midnight oil, because he is taking rather a long time to come to a decision about a contentious bid? In such contentious bids, is there not a case for examining the legal position to see whether we can change the system whereby predatory...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: May I ask my right hon. Friend whether, following her reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Hornchurch (Mr. Squire), she will consider the fact that, devoted as this country is to the nuclear deterrent within NATO, she should make it clear to the Soviet delegation to this country when she meets it later this afternoon that we are interested in making sure that there are nuclear reductions on...

Rover Group (Privatisation) (29 Mar 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend on the deal. Is he not doing what BAe and Rover should do? Should they not get together in the same way as General Motors, Ford and Boeing in the United States, to strengthen the production and manufacturing technology available to a combined group to compete in the world today? I am delighted that BAe is acquiring the management talents of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Rural Areas (29 Mar 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my hon. Friend look at the situation in the East Sussex and Kent rural development area, where unemployment is higher than the national average, and where there is a strong feeling that window dressing is more important than new projects? Will he liaise with other Government Departments on this subject, which is causing considerable concern to my constituents?

Steel (23 Feb 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: When I read the motion on the Order Paper, I was worried by its tone, but having heard the speech of my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister, I was reassured that at last we had a Government who would go to Brussels and tell the people of the Common Market that time has run out and they must get themselves organised. The hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Mr. Mitchell) said that the...

Steel (23 Feb 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: If I may conclude, I will be delighted to hear my hon. Friend's contribution later. It would be wrong not to give credit to a former Member, who is now in another place, Lord Joseph. At a very difficult time in the steel industry he stepped out of the line of policy which one might have expected from him. He went straight into the heart of the Treasury and produced the resolute...

Air Traffic (Air Misses) (8 Feb 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: As the incident took place on the border of my constituency and that of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Mr. Howard), we are greatly concerned about the situation in the future. Is my right hon. Friend aware that I thoroughly endorse the sense of proportion that he has shown, as this is just one incident in an outstanding record by air traffic controllers and by...

Crown Suppliers (3 Feb 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: As my hon. Friend knows, there is a substantial Crown Suppliers facility in my constituency. Although I accept the challenge of privatisation, I ask him to be more specific about the time scale of the sale. As he knows, for many months, staff have been extremely worried about their future. They are highly skilled men and women, who deserve more recognition than merely being told that we are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Security (1 Feb 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: How is it that people such as Wright arid Cavendish can flout our law and apparently publish what they want with no action taken against them? Is there no jurisdiction over them?

Department of Trade and Industry (12 Jan 1988)

Mr Kenneth Warren: While I applaud my right hon. and learned Friend's initiative in seeking to link Government sponsorship of research with market opportunities, may I ask him if he will extend that initiative and examine the opportunity that presents itself for the Government to examine their own position as a customer in the market place and to try to co-ordinate some of their public purchasing policies to...

British Steel Corporation (Privatisation) (3 Dec 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome my right hon. Friend's announcement. However, is it not a remarkable feat that, over the past several years, when the taxpayer's money has been put into Port Talbot, Llanwern and Ravenscraig, the workers there have responded heroically and are now turning out steel of a quality and at prices that are the best in the world? Is it not sad that the hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Gould)...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Westland (3 Dec 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Is my right hon. Friend aware that when evidence on Westland was given to the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, of which I had the honour to be Chairman at the time, there was never at any time any qualification about the standard of the information given, nor did we find any withheld?

Business of the House (26 Nov 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend consider the recent acceptance by Her Majesty's Government of the report by the Monopolies and Mergers Commission on the proposed merger between British Airways and British Caledonian? Will he ask his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport and his right hon. and noble Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to make early statements to the...

British Rail Engineering Ltd (24 Nov 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome my right hon. Friend's statement, but will he give an assurance that, before and after the sale of BREL, there will be no inhibition on that operation bidding for opportunities in either the Channel tunnel or the London Underground equipment programme? Will he also give an assurance that, when BREL is sold, there will be no inhibitions on the purchasers bidding for British Rail...

European Space Agency (12 Nov 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Has my right hon. and learned Friend sensed the fear that is abroad in industry and commerce that we are standing on the threshold of a vast commercial breakthrough in the use of space transportation and that the Government are afraid to cross that threshold? I think it would be most helpful if he could reassure the House and the country that he understands the dimensions of those...

Orders of the Day — Data Protection (3 Nov 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will it be possible for that information to be made available in the House?

Orders of the Day — Data Protection (3 Nov 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Despite the statement of the hon. Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Mr. Corbett) that there will be no vote on the orders, should have been delighted to vote for them. I believe that we are dancing the often organised late night minuet around the Official Secrets Act. In terms of the progress of my hon. Friend the Member for Aldridge-Brownhills (Mr. Shepherd), I hope that the orders will be...

Orders of the Day — Data Protection (3 Nov 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My hon. Friend asks why not. The problem with our laws at the moment is that they not only grow too fast, but that lawyers' fees grow exponentially with them. As an aside it is high time that the lawyers' fees were examined in detail, particularly why they charge so much for such limited services. I now question the considerations that arise in the terms of the Data Protection (Miscellaneous...

Chancellor of the Exchequer (Statement): Sea Fisheries (26 Oct 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: It is with sadness that I report that this day we have had to bury in my constituency a "boy ashore". I refer to Mr. James Read, a fisherman who was killed in the hurricane last week. I am sure that the House will join me in sending to his faily its condolences at this difficult time. A man ashore died and the entire fleet had to remain ashore while a force 12-plus gale was blowing. I am sure...
