Industrial Relations (Northern Ireland) (11 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: The hon. Gentleman misheard me. I accused successive Governments of the United Kingdom, for reasons which were not perhaps very apparent at the time, of having imposed this differentiation. If the hon. Gentleman cares to study the 1920 Act and the 1973 Act for the government of Northern Ireland, he will find that the House passed legislation which enforced on part of the United Kingdom a...

Industrial Relations (Northern Ireland) (11 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: It will go on as long as the United Kingdom insists on treating Northern Ireland differently from the rest with the perceived and intended object of eventually separating it.

Industrial Relations (Northern Ireland) (11 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: The Minister, in moving the order, enunciated a principle with which it is difficult to disagree, despite the efforts of the right hon. and learned Member for Warley, West (Mr. Archer): that parity of the law between all parts of the United Kingdom is in principle desirable unless a strong case to the contrary is shown; and that one of the areas in which the desirability of parity is...

Industrial Relations (Northern Ireland) (11 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am coming immediately to the question of indecent haste, which seems to me a strange objection to raise against the order. I was about to say that one of the characteristics of parity is simultaneity. It is impossible to say that all parts of the United Kingdom enjoy the same law if the same law is only applied to them at different times. This law has applied to the rest of the United...

Business of the House (11 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: With reference to the business provisionally being considered through the usual channels for the remainder of the week, will the Leader of the House see whether he can transfer the Territorial Sea Bill debate from Wednesday to Tuesday, which may be more convenient for some hon. Members with a special interest in that legislation?

Northern Ireland (Police) ( 6 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: Is the hon. Gentleman sure that we shall have an opportunity to debate the regulations?

Northern Ireland (Security) ( 6 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: rose in his place and claimed to move, That the Question be now put.

Northern Ireland (Security) ( 6 May 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: It is always an honour in a debate on Northern Ireland to be called immediately after the hon. Member for Epping Forest (Sir J. Biggs-Davison), with his unbroken record of fidelity to the interests and rights of the people of Northern Ireland as an integral part of the United Kingdom. The speech that he has just delivered would bear careful examination by the Government, both for its points...

New clause 16: Power of Secretary of State to Direct the Closure etc. of Roads ( 8 Apr 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: The Minister referred to the reasons for the closures which take place under existing legislation. I was just looking at section 19 of the Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978, the operation of which is specifically preserved by subsection (4) of the new section. In referring to the closure of roads it says: so far as he considers it immediately necessary for the preservation of...

New clause 16: Power of Secretary of State to Direct the Closure etc. of Roads ( 8 Apr 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: We find ourselves in the not uncommon difficulty on Report that a substantial slab of legislative material is placed before us which we do not have the same opportunity to examine in detail as would be available to us in Committee. In particular, this is probably experienced by other hon. Members in considering this and subsequent Government new clauses. I am sure that the Minister will...

Foreign Affairs ( 7 Apr 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: During the exchanges which took place last Thursday after the Prime Minister had reported on her visit to Russia I observed that a radical transformation in the defence and foreign policies of this country was in progress. I had the impression, after I had said that, that a number of hon. Members were puzzled as to what I was referring to, but that the Prime Minister was not one of those who...

Foreign Affairs ( 7 Apr 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I was obviously not clear. My point was that with the disappearance of the intermediate range ballistic missiles from the picture we should be back again with the strategic exchange—that very exchange between the heartlands of the two nuclear giants which underlay the inherent incredibility of the whole nuclear hypothesis. The hon. Member for Ruislip-Northwood (Mr. Wilkinson), however, is...

Soviet Union (Prime Minister's Visit) ( 2 Apr 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: Will the right hon. Lady ensure that a very early opportunity is given to this House to have a full debate on the radical transformation which is in progress in both the foreign policy and the defence policy of the United Kingdom?

Business of the House ( 5 Mar 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: Is the Leader of the House aware that the Public Order (Northern Ireland) Order is a major piece of substantive primary legislation, and that to describe it as "appropriate" to attempt to deal with it in two or three hours by a procedure which gives no opportunity for proper consideration is a prime example of the cynical injustice with which the Government deal with the affairs of the Province?

Cancer Screening and AIDS Research (25 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: Is the Secretary of State in a position to tell us when and in what form parallel statements about cancer screening in other parts of the United Kingdom will be made?

Planning Decisions (Northern Ireland) (10 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I would not normally trouble the House, especially at this time of night, with a detailed constituency case of the apparent failure of planning control. Nor would I take up the time of the Minister and his advisers in so doing if I did not believe that the circumstances of the case were symptomatic of something which is faulty in the system of planning control in Northern Ireland that...

Prevention of Terrorism (10 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I intervene briefly only to underline one of the points in the Colville report that has already been mentioned. Lord Colville's fortunes have been mixed in the debate. It is remarkable what can happen to a former Under-Secretary of State in his years out of office. He made a fair observation towards the end of his report, which has already been quoted by the right hon. Gentleman the Member...

Planning Decisions (Northern Ireland) (10 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am grateful to the Minister for his reply and for the trouble that he has taken to establish and reflect upon the facts of the case. I think that he and the Department will wish to draw some practical deductions from this experience. In the light of what the Minister has explained to the House, I think that it is regrettable that an enforcement and stop notice was not issued in November...

Education (Northern Ireland) ( 5 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: If these powers are already in existence, will the Minister explain why they have to be written into the principal order by this order?

Education (Northern Ireland) ( 5 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I intervene in the debate principally for one reason, namely, the acute anxiety that is evidently still felt in Northern Ireland among members of the staff who will be transferred under these arrangements to the employment of the education and library boards. In that light, no doubt like other hon. Members, I have studied carefully the provisions of schedule 1 and I hope that it will be...
