Harrods (Bomb Incident) (19 Dec 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: Has consideration been given to using the special constabulary in London, which is fairly large, to assist the regular police force? Will my right hon. and learned Friend give an assurance that any talks with either the military or the political wings of the Provisionals in Northern Ireland will cease? This point was raised yesterday by the Prime Minister of Southern Ireland, when it was said...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Dec 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: Will my right hon. Friend, as a gesture to the British public at this time of goodwill, suggest to other Heads of State and the Prime Ministers that, in view of the problems of the EEC, next year's elections should be postponed until it is quite clear on what we are voting?

European Community (Budget) (1 Dec 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: It was. I did things in the past to help my right hon. Friend.

European Community (Budget) (1 Dec 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I can but congratulate the hon. Member for Livingston (Mr. Cook), who has spoken almost to my motion. Mine is the voice of Jacob while he has the hairy hand of Esau which is trying to destroy the Government. What I propose is intended to support the Government and strengthen their hand. They are entering difficult negotiations. On the trip to Athens, I regard my right hon. Friend the Prime...

Business of the House: Debates on 7 December (1 Dec 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: With regard to the missing numbers, may I congratulate the right hon. Member for Islwyn (Mr. Kinnock) on taking over my motion? I have always thought that the Opposition needed a leader. I congratulate the Whips on the organisation of the spontaneous changes of mind. They have quite a lot to teach the shop stewards of the National Graphical Association.

European Community Affairs (14 Nov 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend on his robust statement. As this year's agricultural production in Europe has fallen by 7 per cent. beyond what was anticipated, will not the fundamental agricultural crisis increase rather than be ameliorated? Throughout the negotiations, will my right hon. and learned Friend be even more robust and ensure that there is not an increase in...

Oral Answers to Questions — European Community: Athens Summit (9 Nov 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: As my hon. Friend represents a Government who are committed to the reduction of public expenditure, will he give a categoric assurance that any advance at Athens will depend on the reduction of expenditure by the Community rather than on increasing the levies raised on this country or any other? Until my hon. Friend can give that assurance, he will find it difficult to obtain national support.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Nov 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: Is it not time that the right hon. Gentleman considered — I hope that my right hon. Friend can reinforce this view—that critical though the middle east position may be, a Syrian takeover of Lebanon would be worse? That is one of the dangers that face us.

Members of Parliament (Salaries) (26 Jul 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House on this Byzantine calculation which fully meets the will of the House.

Business of the House (21 Jul 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: Can my right hon. Friend assure the House that the instruments to be debated on Tuesday will reflect precisely the various decisions of the House on Members' pay? Can those instruments be adjusted or must they remain in accordance with the motion passed by the House on Wednesday morning?

Members' and Ministers' Pay and Allowances: Schedule (19 Jul 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I draw the attention of the House to the amendment standing in my name and that of my right hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Mr. St. John-Stevas) and other hon. Friends to the amendment so ably propounded by my right hon. Friend the Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann). We shall vote tonight in a rather interesting way. I gather that my amendment will be the first to be called. I thank the...

Death Penalty (13 Jul 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I wish to answer one of the questions that was put to the House by my right hon. Friend the Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath). He asked why the status quo should not be sufficiently and equitably maintained since our last major debate on this issue three years ago. There are two main reasons for changing the status quo. The first is the one to which the hon. Member for Carlisle...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (12 Jul 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: Further to that point of order, Mr. Walker. I thank you for that explanation, but the matter still seems odd. Clause 15, the clause on DLT, has introduced a new principle that makes nonsense of DLT, which we believe to be a nonsense tax, and now we cannot speak about it at all. This seems a most peculiar way for the Government to proceed.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (12 Jul 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: On a point of order, Mr. Walker. I understand that, because the Finance Bill is so drawn, there is no question of discussing the new clauses. Perhaps you would give us a ruling on that.

Falkland Islands (Strategic Airfield) (27 Jun 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: Apart from the military advantages of my right hon. Friend's proposal, does he agree that those of us who pressed for the development of an airfield in 1976 regard it as a means of enhancing our importance in the South Atlantic and the development of Antarctica? Sure communications will make all the difference to this strategic development in the next few years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (11 May 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I welcome my right hon. Friend's regard for the new agreement between America, Israel and the Lebanon, but is it not time that the House and the Foreign Office gave more praise to Israel for having settled a difficult problem and turned to the main obstruction to peace, which is the Syrian Government?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (14 Apr 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: It is my great pleasure to congratulate the hon. Member for Darlington (Mr. O'Brien) on his speech. He made it with great and proper respect for his predecessor and with considerable charm. I hope that after a mere four days of work in this place he will go from strength to strength, but only, of course, for a limited parliamentary time. I congratulate him most profoundly on behalf of us...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (14 Apr 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: The right hon. Member for Stepney and Poplar (Mr. Shore) produced a vast amount of statistics, but refused to answer the main point that many people are asking at every by-election. What will the Labour party do? He failed to answer that question because it is on the basis of his answer that his criticisms should rest. I agree with him in two respects. First, I regard unemployment as a major...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Mar 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: We have heard an interesting speech from the hon. Member for Colne Valley (Mr. Wainwright). I am not sure whether he is speaking for the mass of the alliance or as the shadow Chancellor, because I do not know his position in his party's hierarchy. We have heard two shadow Chancellors addressing the House this afternoon, one a pale shadow of the other, although they denounce any mutual...

Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1976 (7 Mar 1983)

Mr Hugh Fraser: I should like to support the line taken by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary this afternoon and to express my amazement, which has already been foreshadowed by the amazement of the right hon. Member for Glasgow, Hillhead (Mr. Jenkins), at the attitude of the Labour party on this occasion. It is extraordinary that we should suddenly have the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook...
