Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Eastern Europe (9 Jan 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that, despite all the changes in Europe, in Russia and in the satellite countries, Russia still represents a formidable force and that we should in no way drop our defences but should retain our nuclear deterrent until Europe has settled down and a peace settlement can be reached?

Bills Presented: Local Government Finance (18 Jan 1990)

Bills Presented: Local Government Finance (18 Jan 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: We are debating five motions. Will my right hon. Friend consider making more concessions, first, on SSAs, and secondly, on removal of the safety nets? I represent an area where it is estimated that the charge will be over £500. If my right hon. Friend would make those two concessions, there would be a considerable difference.

Orders of the Day — Private Medical Insurance (30 Jan 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Surely co-operation between private medicine and the National Health Service is necessary to provide patients with better facilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: East Germany (6 Feb 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, whatever happens in East Germany, the future of Europe is so uncertain and the Soviet Union is still building up such an enormous defence that, until matters have settled down, it is essential to retain the nuclear deterrent?

Business of the House (15 Feb 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: May I take up an earlier question? My constituency was probably the worst affected by the recent flooding. Will the Leader of the House ask his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment to speed up an inquiry into whether the Bellwin scheme is applicable, or whether new legislation will have to be introduced to help those whose houses and property have been badly damaged...

Royal Air Force (28 Feb 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: rose——

Royal Air Force (28 Feb 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: The hon. Gentleman was correct when he said that there have been enormous changes in eastern Europe. He has correctly outlined them, and none of us disputes that. However, all those countries would have been unreliable allies to the Soviets. We are now faced with a much shorter Soviet frontier. Therefore, as the hon. Gentleman says, we need different types of weapon. One of those weapons is...

Opposition Day: Prevention of Terrorism (6 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that circumstances are entirely different on this side of the Irish sea from those in Northern Ireland and that the dangers are much greater in Northern Ireland, which means that the provisions must therefore be slightly different?

Business of the House (8 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: We are all very grateful that at last there is to be a debate on war crimes, but is not a war crime a war crime wherever it is committed? Surely the agenda should not be confined to German territory which might well have been occupied temporarily by the Russians.

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Staff (Wages and Conditions) (19 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will the hon. Gentleman reflect on facilities for the staff, some of whom work here for long periods but who have nowhere to lie down and rest in between those periods?

Orders of the Day — War Crimes Bill (19 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: The Home Secretary has used the words "Germany or German-occupied territory". Does he agree that there is room here for some anxiety? He will remember that, during the war, occupying powers changed. For instance, at a particular time, certain territory was occupied by the Soviets. It may have been German territory, but, as it was occupied by the Soviets, technically it is completely outside...

Orders of the Day — War Crimes Bill (19 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that some of the people who came here were brought over deliberately on a sort of free passport on condition that they provided information, or a language, or something, in exchange for their liberty?

Orders of the Day — War Crimes Bill (19 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Perhaps I did not make myself clear. I asked whether it was correct that some of these people may well have been let into the country with the connivance of the Government because they had information that was useful.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: This is a sensible Budget and one that has been produced against a very difficult background. Nobody knew which way the deutschmark would go and and that is one of the factors that have made it extremely difficult to prepare the Budget. Nevertheless, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor has concentrated on the important things—first, the reduction of inflation and, secondly, the building up...

Business of the House (3 May 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: In view of the changes occurring in Lithuania and the Baltic states, will my right hon. and learned Friend consider having a very early debate about the pressure that the Soviet Government appear to be putting on the reunification of Germany?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Bad Debts (15 May 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that by giving enormous advances to Third-world countries, which will never be repaid, the banks have made it almost impossible or far more difficult to lend to smaller businesses?

Business of the House (17 May 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: My right hon. and learned Friend will be aware of the situation in the Baltic states, particularly in Lithuania. Will it be possible to arrange an early debate on how this country can best help them economically and with supplies in what is a very difficult situation?

The Army (5 Jun 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: Surely it is impossible to have a united Germany in NATO, with our forces in West Germany, and still have—as was said by the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours)—Russian troops in East Germany, however few they number. One cannot mix the two.

The Army (5 Jun 1990)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am sorry to hear of the events described by the hon. Member for Newport, West (Mr. Flynn). I am sure that adequate warnings will be given in future. I endorse fully my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State's views expressed on page 5 and all that goes with that. I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Minister of State who endorsed my right hon. Friend's policy. We sat back as NATO and...
