Storm Damage (England) (21 Oct 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: As my right hon. Friend knows, there were many tragic casualties, including people who were killed, in my constituency, and 75 per cent. of the houses have been damaged. May I thank him for the prompt response that his private office gave last Friday morning when it was asked for help, and may I ask him kindly to keep his door open? Although timber may be saleable at some time in the future,...

Airbus A330/A340 Projects (14 May 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome my right hon. Friend's announcement. Can he please tell the House what obligation he has put on British Aerospace to support the rest of the British aerospace industry in the orders and sub-contracts which it will place? In particular, why is there no support for the British equipment industry in this project?

Soviet Union (Prime Minister's Visit) (2 Apr 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: In view of the Prime Minister's outstanding success in the Soviet Union, may I propose to her that now is the time to ask the United States and our other NATO allies to broaden the methods by which we communicate one with the other in order that consultation about future discussions on arms negotiations shall be taken with each and every one of the NATO allies and not have just the United...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Mar 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish my right hon. Friend well on her visit to the Soviet Union. If she raises the issue of human rights with Mr. Gorbachev, she will undoubtedly be told that that is an internal matter for the Soviet Union. Will the Prime Minister then make it clear to Mr. Gorbachev that to us in the West matters of human rights are the foundations of democracy, and that if he wants to deal with us he must...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Westland plc (25 Mar 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I was very pleased yesterday to receive my right hon. Friend's reply, which has been placed before the Committee. We shall be considering his response, and I hope that the Government will not hesitate to make the kind of progress that the Committee has called for, especially in relation to business ethics, with which the Committee is particularly concerned.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Rolls-Royce plc (25 Mar 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: My right hon. Friend is well aware of the excellent relationships that generally exist between the trade unions and management of Rolls-Royce. Referring to the order book that he mentioned, will he assure me that, as privatisation approaches, there will be a clear declaration by the Government, heard by the employees, managers and shareholders — the public — that the contracts into which...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (23 Mar 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: In the Red Book my right hon. Friend the Chancellor says that he aims to maintain a vigorous and enterprising economy. Since 1979 the Government have reduced inflation, the public sector borrowing requirement and taxation. That is exactly what is required for us to build a base on which industry can expand. I declare an interest as an engineer and would like to concentrate on the needs of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Airbus Project (25 Feb 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Having visited Airbus in Toulouse yesterday, may I tell my right hon. Friend that a decision by Her Majesty's Government is long overdue and that the whole project is very vulnerable, unless the British Government go ahead? If they do not, the Germans and the French will not pursue either of those projects. Secondly, will my right hon. Friend bring into his consideration the fact that the...

Rover Group (19 Feb 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: May I support my right hon. Friend's conclusion that this is a good deal? Unless there had been such a deal, there would have been no jobs at Leyland Trucks. I support the statement that was made by my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton (Mrs. Winterton), but, in evidence given to the Select Committee on Trade and Industry last week, the directors of Leyland Trucks told the Committee, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: South-East Thames Regional Health Authority (10 Feb 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will intervene in the dispute within the South-East Thames regional health authority regarding the location for new radiotherapy equipment; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: South-East Thames Regional Health Authority (10 Feb 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: After four years, has not the time come for my hon. Friend to take action to provide the service that must be provided for patients who have been waiting for four years for the service to commence? Is it not time that the Government took an initiative?

Opposition Day: The City and Industry (28 Jan 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I must protest, Mr. Deputy Speaker. The hon. Gentleman has made the serious accusation that a Conservative Member has advocated the flogging of miners. Will he please name that Member?

Opposition Day: The City and Industry (28 Jan 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Name the Member.

Opposition Day: The City and Industry (28 Jan 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: The title of the debate is: The City's Duty to Serve the Nation. As the Opposition chose this topic, I am amazed that more than 95 per cent. of Opposition Members are not present. It is their choice, their debate, and they make enough noise in the headlines—but where are they today? It was a delight to see the hon. Member for Stockton, South (Mr. Wrigglesworth) join us. Where are all his...

High Court Injunction (Mr. Speaker's Order) (27 Jan 1987)

Mr Kenneth Warren: When I expressed the hope to catch you eye, Mr. Speaker, I imagined that I would be taking part in an acrimonious debate. Having sat through the entire debate, what is fascinating is the way in which the House has risen to the heights to which it rises on all too few occasions, through your good offices, Mr. Speaker, and has done itself a great service. I found a renewal of faith in...

Airborne Early Warning Aircraft (18 Dec 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Does my right hon. Friend accept that over the past nine years there has been appalling mismanagement in the procurement executive of the Ministry of Defence on this project? Therefore, will he assure the House that there will be an inquiry into that and that those responsible, whether officers or officials, will be disciplined or discharged?

Fishing Industry (16 Dec 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: In Hastings and Rye we like catching fish, and we do not like cod bans that are imposed with 72 hours' notice. I say to my right hon. Friend the Minister of State, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, who I fully understand cannot be with us at this moment, and to my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Scotland, who is to reply, that in the late 20th century we should be able...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: British Rail (10 Dec 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Following the last question, what action are Her Majesty's Government taking to hack down the quota system? Does it not hold back the ability of British Steel to get into export markets in Europe where other companies are not as efficient as British Steel?

Air Transport (9 Dec 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I follow the hon. Member for West Bromwich, East (Mr. Shape) with a little more hope than he expressed. I am rather sad that he should be so sour even at this late hour. It would be nice to know that he thought it was a good thing that we should be making progress on a measure that we have not thought it worth while debating in the House for years because it was a waste of time debating the...

Air Transport (9 Dec 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I agree, particularly the French—to make sure that they get on and achieve by 1992 the task that their citizens expect them to achieve by then. Hon. Members will welcome the chance to move towards an open market, but may be told, on the question of air fares, whether the airlines are required to consult—for example, in this country the Civil Aviation Authority or the Government—before...
