British Leyland (6 Feb 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome my right hon. Friend's decision to stop the Austin Rover talks. Will he use the opportunity to discuss with the owners of motor vehicle assembly plants how to get more British content into their vehicles and will he draw into the discussions the motor components buyers, whose future rests on the success of the assemblers?

Opposition Day: Gartcosh Steel Mill (23 Jan 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: The Select Committee on Trade and Industry, of which I am Chairman, has had opportunities to look at the BSC's work. It has been a pleasure to note the way in which the corporation improved its profits over the past six months. I congratulate the management and the workers. One of the most revealing features of the BSC—I speak personally on this point, not on behalf of the Select...

Opposition Day: Gartcosh Steel Mill (23 Jan 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I am reluctant to allow interventions in what I regard as a Scottish debate, although I think that this is a United Kingdom question.

Opposition Day: Gartcosh Steel Mill (23 Jan 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I hope that my hon. Friend will forgive me if I do not give way. I want to be as brief as possible and I am afraid that I am already taking a lot of time. Other hon. Members want to speak. I hope that the Government will answer these questions. There is no doubt that output at Gartcosh is of high quality. One would not transport Gartcosh steel 340 miles to the gates of Port Talbot just to...

Opposition Day: Westland plc (15 Jan 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I declare an interest as an aeronautical engineer, but I have no part in the present Westland negotiations. I am Chairman of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry. That Committee today decided that next Wednesday it would consider whether it was right and proper for it to examine the Westland problem. May I draw the attention of the House to the fact that this is a debate about...

Opposition Day: Westland plc (15 Jan 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish to return to the letters—

Opposition Day: Westland plc (15 Jan 1986)

Mr Kenneth Warren: So much for the hon. Gentleman's considered view. I am speaking as a Back Bencher. I believe that the House has freedom of speech and that it is the prerogative of hon. Members on both sides. I shall continue to speak about freedom of information. I am worried about the letter from the Prime Minister which has today been sent to Sir Austin Pearce, the second paragraph of which states that...

Westland (16 Dec 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that there is a need to convey to the armaments directors of Europe an understanding that Westland is a European helicopter company? Does he also accept that nobody in Europe, particularly the chairman of Aerospatiale, has a right to say that such a company would stop Westland getting contracts in NATO? Will my right hon. and learned Friend make it...

Industry Year 1986 (13 Dec 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I declare an interest as an aerospace engineer. I shall try to speak at a pace that will be applauded by those who also wish to take part in the debate, without being supersonic and not heard at all. I welcome Industry Year and hope that the Government will commit themselves to it wholeheartedly. My experience of industry is that we must operate as a team. I hope that the Government will...

Strategic Defence Initiative (9 Dec 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend make it clear to Opposition Members not only that have the Russians been working on star wars projects for 10 years but that they are still carrying on work at six sites in the Soviet Union without let or hindrance? Will he also make it clear that this treaty is for the protection of the people of the West, and we should welcome it on both sides of the House? I...

Orders of the Day — Industry and Employment (12 Nov 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I could.

Orders of the Day — Industry and Employment (12 Nov 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: It is an honour to be called after the right hon. Member for Bristol, South (Mr. Cocks), who renders such service to the House. It was always a pleasure to know that he was dealing with the Opposition's affairs. Now he leaves the Labour party "coxless" and up the creek without a paddle, as has so often been the case. I shall contribute to the debate by taking up early-day motion 29 and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Oct 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: asked the Prime Minister if she will list her official engagements for Tuesday 29 October.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Oct 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I recognise that there has been rapid growth in business productivity and excellent growth in new businesses under my right hon. Friend's leadership —those facts are undeniable—but will my right hon. Friend, as a scientist, turn her attention to the future standards of science in our community? Is she aware that there is grave concern in the scientific community about the way in which we...

Design and Innovation (21 Oct 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: We thought that this would be a quiet debate at the end of the Session, but it is clear from the peroration of the hon. Member for Coventry, North-West (Mr. Robinson) that it is likely to be livened up somewhat. However, it is not inappropriate to hit at the question of innovation and design because the subject has been neglected for long by the House. I suppose that, as a subject, it...

Estimates Day: Class Iv, Vote 4 (18 Jul 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I wish to speak on the motion on class IV, vote 4, because it is clear from the report which the Select Committee on Trade and Industry had the honour to present to Parliament on Monday of this week that we are worried about the adequacy of the vote and wish it to be examined during today's debate, and further examined by the Governirent in the light of the contributions that I am sure hon....

Estimates Day: Class Iv, Vote 4 (18 Jul 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: We discovered that, although a great deal is being done in all industries, it is not enough. When we met representatives of operators in the South China sea and in the Bohai sea, we discovered that in many cases the Chinese were eager for the most basic help, such as writing specifications to determine the quality of goods that should be demanded of those who supply them. Bristow Helicopters...

Estimates Day: Class Iv, Vote 4 (18 Jul 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: It is always nice when an hon. Friend reminds me of what I should say. I was about to come to that point, which is difficult to answer. Rather than decide from which budget the additional loans should come, all available Government resources, whether from the Export Credits Guarantee Department, ATP provision or whatever, should be considered together as total assistance. The various sources...

Estimates Day: Class Iv, Vote 4 (18 Jul 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: The hon. Gentleman refers to the point that I was making. The total available resources should be considered together rather than separately. In the report's conclusions we stated the need for a positive commitment by United Kingdom companies, if they are to enjoy a share in the growth of the Chinese market. It is easy to pontificate, and I must declare an interest in that in the past I had...

British Leyland (17 Jun 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: May I say how pleased I am to hear of my right hon. Friend's approval of the corporate plan and the way in which it identifies the determination of BL to be as competitive as the best of its competitors? Is he aware that Mr. Horrocks, chief executive of BL Cars, when asked by the Select Committee on Trade and Industry last year whether the company wanted any more money from the market or...
