Mr Ronald Lewis: Will the Prime Minister tell us whether she read an article which appeared in her favourite newspaper, the Daily Mail, a few weeks ago under the heading, "Who takes the prize for champion liar …?" Since that publication, it would appear that President Reagan and his team are well ahead in the race. When the Prime Minister goes on television——

Points of Order (12 May 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: Yes, and I shall do so again. Will you reconsider your decision, Mr. Speaker? You said that more than 80 hon. Members from both sides of the House were retiring.

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill: Variation Orders etc. (8 May 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: My hon. Friend is arguing about why the hon. Member for Eastwood (Mr. Stewart) should continue with his Bill. Although some of those who supported the Bill knew that the hon. Gentleman would move the motion, would not my hon. Friend have thought that it was their duty to be with him here right to the end?

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill: Variation Orders etc. (8 May 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: I apologise for not being present at the commencement of this morning's proceedings. I spent a very successful day in Carlisle yesterday, where we strengthened our hold on the city council. I motored home late last night, and I had to get up rather early this morning to come here. I regret not having been here on time. It was no one's fault; the time factor was to blame. I am glad that I was...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill: Variation Orders etc. (8 May 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: I thank the hon. Gentleman for putting me right, and I apologise if I have said anything that I should not have said. Nevertheless, I should have thought that the supporters of a measure of this kind, whatever the circumstances, would have been present right up to the end to give it its funeral. But evidently the hon. Gentleman has done that himself with his motion. 10.45 am I have taken...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill: Variation Orders etc. (8 May 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his intervention. He is absolutely right. The tragedy is that the present Paymaster General was the promoter of that Bill. However, Parliament in its wisdom defeated it. This may be the last time that I shall take part in a debate in this hallowed place that I have been privileged to serve, and have loved to serve. The work done by the right hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill: Variation Orders etc. (8 May 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: I shall try to stick to the Bill, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I was merely trying to say that I am sorry that, as a result of my intervention in sending a letter and raising a point on the Floor of the House, some hon. Members whom I named, and who are not dishonest people, have now taken a personal dislike to me. That has been evident in the measure of their friendship, and I deprecate it. Having...

Members (Declaration of Interests) (22 Apr 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I wish to raise with you a matter of which I have given you prior notice, although I understand that my letter, which was posted from the north of England on Good Friday, had not reached your office by midday today. Therefore, I apologise, Mr. Speaker although it is not my fault. I gave notice as soon as I was able to read the debate in Standing Committee C....

Members (Declaration of Interests) (22 Apr 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: I am coming to that, Mr. Speaker. The hon. Member for Romsey and Waterside (Mr. Colvin) declared his interest as a licensee and the hon. Member for Thanet, North (Mr. Gale) declared his interest as an adviser to Scottish and Newcastle Breweries. In addition, the hon. Member for Gillingham is the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Minister for Health. The Government are supposed to be...

Members (Declaration of Interests) (22 Apr 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: I am coming to the point, Mr. Speaker. This is the earliest opportunity I have had to raise the matter with you as I did not see the Official Report of the Committee proceedings until after the House had gone into recess for Easter, so in my simple judgment I have acted correctly and, if I may say so, honourably. I am prepared to believe that all three hon. Gentlemen consider that they acted...

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: Like the right hon. and learned Member for Warrington, South (Mr. Carlisle), I was here in 1964 when Sydney Silverman's Bill was introduced. I had been consistent in my opposition to hanging before I came to the House, and this will certainly be the last contribution that I shall make in this Chamber on the issue of capital punishment. Not long after I came here, a policeman was murdered and...

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: The hon. Gentleman's right hon. Friend the Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath) explained why his Government introduced abolition for Northern Ireland. The hon. Gentleman seems to he inconsistent in what he is now saying.

British Rail Engineering Ltd. (18 Mar 1987)

Mr Ronald Lewis: Is the Minister aware that since 1979, when the Conservatives took over, British Rail Engineering Ltd. has closed roughly seven main workshops and shed about 20,000 jobs? The figures that British Rail has just announced will add to that total. Is he further aware that British Rail is now looking very closely at the west coast main line and has given notice that there will be a large number of...

Business of the House (18 Dec 1986)

Mr Ronald Lewis: Now that the transport users consultative committee has recommended that the Settle to Carlisle railway line must be kept open, will the right hon. Gentleman arrange for the Secretary of State for Transport to make a statement early in the new year about the Government's intention to abide by that committee's decision?
