Prayers: Government's Policy for Science (14 Jun 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: At the beginning of this year my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I had the privilege of being entertained—I believe that it was entertaining—by Lord Flowers and others at Imperial college. He brought together several of his friends, including Sir David Phillips, Sir Ronald Mason, John Ashworth and Sir John Kingman, to review the problems of science in Britain. My right hon....

European Cup Final (Brussels) (3 Jun 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I accept that there is no excuse for the violence that took place in Brussels. Will my right hon. Friend give an assurance that every co-operation will be given by her Ministers and by our police to the Belgian police, especially in the light of evidence that has come before me today and which I intend to place before Ministers? The evidence suggests that there was inadequate policing at the...

Business of the House (4 Apr 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Over the Easter recess, will my right hon. Friend look at the way in which the work of Select Committees is being persistently held up by the dog-in-the-manger attitude of the alliance in not allowing the replacement of members on Select Committees?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Unemployment (4 Apr 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Is my hon. Friend aware that I am the chairman of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, which recently had two opportunities to visit Northern Ireland to study industrial and commercial development? Is he further aware of how impressed we were with the efficiency and enterprise of all workers in the Province? Does he accept that while there may be a lot of nuts in Noraid trying to make...

English Channel (Fixed Link) (2 Apr 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome the prospect of the promotion of a fixed link across the Channel, but to what physical extent will national law apply each side of the Channel? Secondly, may I reinforce the wish of my hon. Friend the Member for Thanet, North (Mr. Gale) to see the road and rail infrastructure brought up to a standard commensurate with the Channel tunnel when, as he well knows, in south-east England...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Mar 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: When my right hon. Friend goes to Moscow tomorrow, will she make plain to the Soviet people the strong feelings, which I am sure are shared by many of us, that, with the sadness of the death of their leader, we also have high expectations because Mr. Gorbachev, on his visit to this country, opened the doors of peace and friendship, which has given hope to the people of this country that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: British Aerospace (27 Feb 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Bearing in mind the way in which my hon. Friend is always keen to promote exports, will he consider the difficulties that beset British Aerospace, in that if it cannot get export credit guarantee cover for exporting, it should not be expected to pay a levy of 7·5 per cent. to the Ministry of Defence on a successful sale? Will he have words with his opposite number in the Ministry of Defence...

Business of the House (14 Feb 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend consider the difficulties facing the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, of which I have the honour to be Chairman, and other Select Committees? When recommedations are made by the Committee of Selection that hon. Members should join a particular Committee, such as the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, there has been an increasing blockage in implementing...

Mr. Clive Ponting (12 Feb 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that, while I fully understand the need to protect the security of the state, the time has surely come when we should examine, review and reform the Official Secrets Act 1911? Further, will he call on the Leader of the Opposition to withdraw his scandalous accusation against the Prime Minister?

Brighton Bombing (Hoddinott Report) (22 Jan 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: I welcome the words that my right hon. and learned Friend has spoken in praise of the Sussex police force. As a Sussex Member, I know of its efficiency and that of the chief constable. However, is he aware that I am deeply disturbed at the lack of understanding that all of us have, and clearly have had, about the standards of security that are necessary and the failure to search, as was...

British Aerospace plc (15 Jan 1985)

Mr Kenneth Warren: May I also say how great a pleasure it is to welcome my right hon. Friend back to the House? He has given us good news in his first statement. Can he define for the House and those outside who are partners with the British Aerospace company in international agreements such as Panavia in Germany and Italy and Airbus Industrie in France and Germany what relationships they will have with the new...

M25 Motorway (Accident) (11 Dec 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my hon. Friend consider the design of this motorway, about which she will remember I have had extensive correspondence with her? The problem is as much that of a traffic jam building up eastwards for many miles as anything else, as it is impossible to leave the motorway for a distance of about 20 miles. If there were only an interchange capability where the motorway meets the A21, many...

British Telecom (3 Dec 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Does not my hon. Friend think that the investment in success by British Telecom employees is not only to be welcomed but to be considered at variance with their trade unions, which campaigned consistently against that investment? Will my hon. Friend also seek an assurance from the Opposition that no right hon. or hon. Member on their Benches invested in that success?

Regional Industrial Policy (28 Nov 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Although I welcome my hon. Friend's step forward, I had hoped for a much more radical approach. As unemployment is, unfortunately, a characteristic of the whole country, did my hon. Friend look at the benefits that could arise by decreasing industrial taxation as a method of creating jobs rather than leaving us with what is becoming an antiquated regional policy support system?

Business of the House (15 Nov 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend assure the House that when the Stansted report is published it will be debated in the House and that a decision whether to proceed on its recommendations will be taken by a vote?

Orders of the Day — Industry and Employment (12 Nov 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Following what the hon. Member for Stockton, South (Mr. Wrigglesworth) said about how our hearts and thoughts go out to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and his wife, the House will be pleased to know that, in reply to a letter from the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, I received a handwritten note from my right hon. Friend recording that both he and...

Orders of the Day — Industry and Employment (12 Nov 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: The district councils have their own part to play. The hon. Gentleman can make his own speech if he withdraws to his empty Back Benches. I should like to refer to the Government as a sponsor. It is difficult for individual industrial companies to criticise Governments when so often they are the biggest single customer that they have, either directly or indirectly. What one hears nowadays...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Privatisation (1 Aug 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: In the progress towards the privatisation of British Shipbuilders, will my right hon. Friend consider the need to protect the company's assets in terms of the training that is now available to some 2,000 members of the company, but which BS proposes to close down during the summer recess?

Business of the House (26 Jul 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend accept that we on this side of the House are very pleased to hear that, through the usual channels, discussion will take place about whether it is possible to make an announcment before the recess about the decision in relation to the extraordinary CAA document on. British Airways? Will my right hon. Friend take account of the fact that it also impinges severely on...

British Shipbuilders (25 Jul 1984)

Mr Kenneth Warren: Will my right hon. Friend place any inhibition on foreign investment in the purchase of the warship yards? Will he give an assurance that, in consultation with the Secretary of State for Defence, the Trident contract will not be downgraded or degraded in any way and that it will not cost any more if it is passed through Vickers into private ownership?
