Dr Alan Glyn: I shall not take up the comments of the hon. Member for Fife, Central (Mr. Hamilton) except on a few matters as I proceed with my speech. First, I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer for the simple way in which he has laid out his Budget. His statement was easy to understand and I have never known a more comprehensive and clear exposé than that which my right...

There is anxiety that the fleet has declined to such an extent that it cannot fulfil the total commitments that are required for all our defence requirements, not just our NATO obligations.

The Army (30 Jan 1986)

Dr Alan Glyn: I apologise to the hon. Member for Yeovil (Mr. Ashdown), but I shall not discuss the matter which he probed because I think that the debate is a more general one about the Army. As hon.

Friend on his appointment as Secretary of State...

The Army (30 Jan 1986)

Dr Alan Glyn: I hope that my right hon. Friend will say something about the cadet force because that is the nursery for recruiting. I understand that the cadet force is now much better equipped.

If young people are properly trained, not only does it do them good for civilian life but...

Opposition Day: Members' Secretaries and Research Assistants (29 Jan 1986)
