Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (10 Mar 1992)

Dr Alan Glyn: This is probably my last performance in the House. My first was over 30 years ago. I thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, all the staff of the House and my constituents for their co-operation and help. One of the most important proposals in the Budget is the one for budgetary reform. As my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridgeshire, South-West (Sir A. Grant) said, for years we have had two...

Business of the House (20 Feb 1992)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. Friend consider a debate on the accommodation that is given to servants of the House who must stay overnight in this Palace, and will he examine the facilities that are offered to them? Will he also consider a change so that we ourselves, rather than the Department of the Environment, have responsibility?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Feb 1992)

Dr Alan Glyn: I thank my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister for his message from the Cabinet and Government. Is he aware of early day motion 580, already signed by 165 hon. Members, which expresses the views of Back Benchers and their loyalty and congratulations to Her Majesty? It does not include members of the Cabinet or Government, or of the shadow Cabinet, and, unfortunately, is not even allowed to...

Clause 1: Offence of Prison Mutiny (28 Jan 1992)

Dr Alan Glyn: If this is a united Kingdom, the law in Northern Ireland should be the same as that in England and Wales, whatever the consequences. I realise that there are reasons for the approach that my hon. Friend the Minister of State is adopting, but I hope that she will convey the feelings of hon. Members, including many on the Government side, to her right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for...

Nuclear Defence (14 Jan 1992)

Dr Alan Glyn: These issues are certainly the most important that I have witnessed since I came to the House more than 30 years ago. They represent an unforeseen danger far greater than that of the Falklands or the Gulf war. I strongly support the policy of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. I regard four Tridents as essential in the new circumstances in which we find ourselves. I support my right...

Orders of the Day — Thames Flood Alleviation Scheme (7 Nov 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: I agree that all the facts which my hon. Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Smith) has said are contained in the 1991 paper are true. However, he and I differ in a fundamental way. In 1947, 1954, 1959, 1974 and 1990—particularly in 1947—the flooding in Maidenhead was extensive. We had to have waders and tractors to go through the streets. The damage done was considerable. We must...

Prayers: Debate on the Address (31 Oct 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: It is more than 30 years since I first spoke in a debate on the Loyal Address. I pay tribute to the speeches made by the proposer and the seconder of the motion and I also pay tribute to our colleagues Alick Buchanan-Smith, Richard Holt and George Buckley who we wish were with us. The tributes that have been paid to them by hon. Members on both sides of the House show how much we feel about...

Defence: First Day (14 Oct 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: Before the recess, we had the "Options for Change". I consider that there were three grave mistakes in the Secretary of State's speech. First, the cuts were too early and too drastic, even in view of the changes in Europe. It seems that my right hon. Friend was influenced by the ending of the Warsaw pact. But many other considerations come into the decisions. Secondly, the cuts were too...

Constitutional Reform: Iraqi Refugees (3 Jul 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: If the safe areas cannot be protected by United Nations armed forces, it is useless to leave the refugees to their fate at the hands of Saddam Hussein.

Constitutional Reform: Iraqi Refugees (3 Jul 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: The hon. Lady did not mention armed forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Kurdish Refugees (2 Jul 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: Is my right hon. Friend prepared to allow troops to remain there until the United Nations has a force that is capable of guarding the secure areas where Kurdish refugees are staying?

The Army (1 Jul 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: What is the hon. Gentleman's view on the safe areas for the Kurds? Should we or should we not protect those areas until United Nations forces take our place? The United Nations observers are incapable of doing the job.

The Army (1 Jul 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Business of the House (20 Jun 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: My right hon. Friend has said that there will be service debates next week. Would it be in order to raise in those debates the situation in Kuwait and the question of secure areas for the Kurds?

Orders of the Day — Planning and Compensation Bill [Lords]: Development Plans (19 Jun 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my hon. Friend be kind enough to say which he considers more important—aggregates or the environment? He knows that in my constituency there is an example of the environment having been completely spoilt by digging for aggregates.

Opposition Day: Water Industry (18 Jun 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: Is the hon. Gentleman's party in favour of water meters, by which the charge would exactly reflect the amount used?

Orders of the Day — Badgers Bill: Amendment of S.Ii of Badgers Act 1973 (10 May 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: I join in the congratulations to the hon. Member for Newport, East (Mr. Hughes) on the passage of the Bill. It is an example of the compromise that can be reached on the Floor of the House. It is the result of a great deal of work behind the scenes in which, I am sure, the representatives of both sides of the argument have participated. They have succeeded in reaching agreement. The hon....

Orders of the Day — Badgers Bill: Extension of General. Exceptions (10 May 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: My hon. Friend is arguing about the time that it takes to pass the legislation. He is not arguing on a point of principle but on a technicality.

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (20 Mar 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: I agree with the hon. Member for Londonderry, East (Mr. Ross) that the Bill which will be presented tomorrow will by no means complete the process that is required for reform of local government—it needs a thorough overhaul. It must also be accountable. As my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Mr. Jesse!) said, offering enormous salaries to chief executives does not promote...

Orders of the Day — War Crimes Bill (18 Mar 1991)

Dr Alan Glyn: I recall that a command paper published in 1939 set out all the atrocities that had been committed. I obtained a copy from the Library.
