Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that a soldier who abandons his post or does something of that nature, thereby endangering the lives of some of his comrades, should be treated differently from somebody who simply leaves his job in a factory or elsewhere?

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I cannot agree with two of the points made by the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull, North (Mr. McNamara). The first relates to the agreement between ourselves and the United States on discipline. Secondly, he was a little confused, as my right hon. Friend the Minister pointed out, about interrogation, to which we all attach considerable importance. There are differences between the...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: The hon. Gentleman is correct. Some cases which have been dealt with by the military forces should have been dealt with by the civilian authorities. In some cases, the soldiers have been sent back to their own country. I am sure that my right hon. Friend will agree that that has happened in a small minority of cases. The visiting forces law has been used when the civilian law could have been...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: The hon. Gentleman's intervention is rather far-fetched. There is little likelihood of the United States forces having to do that. I can think of only one possible case that the hon. Gentleman may have in mind. It relates to cruise missiles. If the American forces were obstructed, our forces might fire. As the Americans and ourselves work together, I do not believe that that could possibly...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am not quite clear. Is the hon. Gentleman suggesting that the definition of enemy should be changed? I cannot find a better definition, but perhaps he can.

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Presumably a service man serving one of these sentences does not get paid, nor does his wife; is that correct?

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: But paid by the Army.

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (21 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: But they are paid by the services?

Business of the House (14 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House consider extending the time for the debate on televising the House if he will not provide time for a two-day debate?

Debate on the Address: First Day (6 Nov 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I agree with the right hon. Member for Glasgow, Rutherglen (Mr. MacKenzie) that this country is in the middle of a third industrial revolution and that the pattern of industry is changing. As he said, we are moving towards microchip technology, and people must be trained to undertake that kind of work. It is no use trying to shore up old-fashioned industries such as steel. There is a world...

Business of the House (24 Oct 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Will my right hon. Friend arrange an early debate on civil defence?

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (24 Jul 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, if emergencies do arise in the form of a war, it is vital for the civilian and military sides to work in close cooperation? I have always said that the military should be in charge. If it is in charge, close co-operation, especially in communications, must take place.

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (24 Jul 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am most interested in this subject. As my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Mr. Waller) said, we rarely get the opportunity to discuss one of the most important aspects of life. Only once in the past two years has the subject been raised in the House. I was interested in what my hon. Friend said about reporting to Parliament, because it is important that my hon. Friend the Minister...

Business of the House (4 Jul 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does my right hon. Friend agree that star wars is such an important and large subject that it cannot be covered by a general defence debate? As the Leader of the Opposition has suggested this as a subject for debate, would not it be more suitable to hold it in Opposition time?

Armed Forces (Discipline) (27 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: We all understood the reasons on 20 May. The reason why an earlier announcement was not given to the commanding officers has not been explained. It is difficult for soldiers to understand the complexity of these arrangements. When LOA increases, they are delighted. When it decreases, they are disappointed. The reasons for the fluctuations have been well set out, but why were the commanding...

Armed Forces (Discipline) (27 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull, North (Mr. McNamara), as I know that in his heart he is a great supporter of our armed forces and all our service capabilities. I was interested to hear the hon. Gentleman's comments about the loss of documents. We must all be concerned about any possible leakage. I am sure that my hon. Friend the Minister agrees that any such...

Armed Forces (Discipline) (27 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Perhaps I misunderstood the hon. Gentleman, but I am sure that my hon. Friend will answer that point. I apologise if I did misinterpret the hon. Gentleman. I thought he expressed the view that I takeā€”that this was looked upon as a cut and that adequate notice was not given to commanding officers to explain the situation. I am sure my hon. Friend will touch on that important point which...

Armed Forces (Discipline) (27 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: While it is known that alcohol abuse in the services is at the moment limited, drug abuse was also limited 10 years ago. Is my right hon. Friend aware that this problem could affect many more than it now affects?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Spain and Gibraltar (26 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, although we appreciate the good and improving relations that will result from the visit by His Majesty the King of Spain to Britain, we still recognise our obligations to our own people in Gibraltar?

Social Security (Reform) (18 Jun 1985)

Dr Alan Glyn: Does the right hon. Gentleman think that Beveridge realised what the proportion of the working population to the retired population would be? Did he have any idea that the percentage would be so great?
