Opposition Day: Security Services (Commission) (3 Dec 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am delighted to be called and shall be as brief as possible. I was delighted to hear my right hon. Friend say that there will be a move—I hope not in the far distant future—to follow up the commitment in the 1970 Conservative election manifesto to reform the Official Secrets Act. I also remind the House that in his report Franks said that the OSA catches people who have no thought of...

Unipart and Leyland Bus (24 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome the expedition with which my right hon. Friend has accomplished his part of the deal. Is it not a good thing to have this marvellous test of the way in which management and trade union relationships have been built up in Rover to see the way in which the Leyland deal has been constructed? However, will he assure the House that Rover's integrity is in no way diminished, in the sense...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: British Leyland (16 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Is it not a fact that we now have in the Rover range a super car of world class and that all hon. Members on both sides of the House should back it, as I am sure we will do? Will my hon. Friend take into account the fact that the Select Committee on Trade and Industry has recommended many times that BL, or Rover, or whatever its name is, is an entity of British enterprise that we must all support?

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish only to acknowledge the value of this debate. I commend to my hon. Friend the Minister further study of the statistics that he quoted. At first sight, he may not have interpreted them correctly. However, I value his kind assistance to us in answering the debate, and I hope that his work will lead to extra incentives to promote tourism. Accordingly, I beg to ask leave to withdrawn...

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I beg to move, That Class VII, Vote 1, be reduced by £500 in respect of Subhead A1(1) (Grant in Aid to the British Tourist Authority). I am grateful to the hon. Member for Rotherham (Mr. Crowther) for setting the tone and making sure that everybody in the House understands that we are debating tourism problems and opportunities for the whole of the United Kingdom. In the many months during...

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: From my experience'of visiting large parts of the Principality and of the northern kingdom, I and the Committee found little to criticise there. Indeed, we found more to criticise in England. That brings me back to the rationale. The investment needs to go to the places where the money is being spent to raise the quality. The performance in Wales, particularly at an excellent hotel that we...

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am sure that the hon. Member for Ross, Cromarty and Skye (Mr. Kennedy) will have noticed, as he hares south to Westminster, that there are no signs indicating London on any motorway north of Birmingham. The hon. Gentleman would do well to recognise that the ratios are so adverse against investment in England that the Government must take action, although we do not believe that there should...

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I recognise that that view is not shared by some hon. Members representing Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. However, the Select Committee and I want to bring the best to bear on the opportunities available. Before the hon. Member for Ross, Cromarty and Skye, who is representing the whole of Scotland in this debate tonight by the look of it, challenges my view—

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I apologise to the hon. Member for Greenock and Port Glasgow (Dr. Godman). I meant also to refer to my hon. Friend the Member for Renfrew, West and Inverclyde (Mrs. McCurley). Before anyone challenges my idea, I hope they recognise that the Scottish Tourist Board is allowed by the British Tourist Authority to spend only £200,000 a year on advertising abroad. Furthermore, no one in Wales is...

Estimates 1986–87: Tourism (9 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I could not agree more with my hon. Friend, whose devotion to the tourist cause in Harrogate is well known. I pay tribute to the valuable document that he produced during our study. Indeed, recommendations Nos. 20 to 22 refer to business and conference tourism as a new opportunity. What has been done in Harrogate, Bournemouth, Brighton, and now at the Queen Elizabeth hall, represents a style...

Tin Industry (7 Jul 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: What magnificent speeches we have heard from the men of Cornwall tonight. I was proud to be in the House when they made those speeches, from both sides of the House. I hope that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and my hon. Friend the Minister heard them not for the party politics but for the representations of how people feel about not just the tin industry but all industry and our...

Business of the House (26 Jun 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend give more details about the debate on Monday week on the tin crisis? It would be helpful to know the nature of the Government motion. Will he ensure that that motion recognises the fact that the problem affects Cornwall, the City of London and the entire country? It would be sad if the three-hour debate were swamped by lengthy speeches from both Front Benches at the...

Prison Officers (Dispute) (1 May 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend take account of and give praise to the excellent work of the Sussex constabulary in containing the problems at Northeye? I am sure that my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Mr. Wardle) will want to refer to that if he catches your eye, Mr. Speaker. Will my right hon. Friend praise the police for the way in which they contained a serious situation and...

Soviet Nuclear Accident (British Citizens) (30 Apr 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my hon. Friend make it clear to the Soviet ambassador that, as one of those who is going to the Soviet Union next month under the leadership of Lord Whitelaw, on the Inter-Parliamentary Union delegation—[Laughter.] This is no laughing matter. I am sure that all of us would express real concern—

Soviet Nuclear Accident (British Citizens) (30 Apr 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I do not think that this is at all funny. Many millions of Soviet people are now exposed to radiation, which we would not wish on any citizens in the world. I hope that that will be conveyed to the Soviet ambassador in the United Kingdom. During the discussion would it be possible to ask him if he would accept British charter aircraft to carry out the evacuation speedily, and whether he...

Land Rover-Leyland (24 Apr 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am sure that my right hon. Friend is very much aware of the substantial investment requirements of the BL group. Will he therefore give an assurance that those investment plans will be supported by the Government without reservation until we can step forward with privatisation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Tourism (22 Apr 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: While awaiting anxiously the reply to a later question on the Order Paper on the subject of the Select Committee's report on tourism, may I ask my hon. Friend to acknowledge immediately that if tourism is as successful as he says it is, that which is given to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland should also be given to England, where the investment would realise far more?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Strategic Defence Initiative (15 Apr 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: As my hon. Friend knows, I have received a copy of this document from the United States, which bears no classification sign of any kind. Therefore, I should like confirmation from him of the degree of classification that it is being given in the United States. Secondly, will he please reconsider publication, because this document contains commitments and constraints on British industry which...

Business of the House (10 Apr 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Bearing in mind the fact that my right hon. Friend is aware that over two weeks ago the Select Committee on Trade and Industry published a unanimous report on the tin crisis, will he persuade his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to come to the House next week to reply to that report and tell the House what the Government will do to help the Cornish tin miners,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Airbus (12 Mar 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Before my right hon. Friend receives the submission, will he consider the need to get from the Airbus industry proper accounts as to how its business operates, how it disposes of its money and what is the cost of producing its aeroplanes?
