Sir Timothy Kitson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that about 15 months ago hon. Members from both sides of the House approached the Charity Commissioners about the charitable status of the Unification Church in Britain? In view of her concern about the activities of the "Moonies" in Britain and the fact that Sun Moon has now been sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment in the United States of America for embezzling...

Port Stanley (British Subjects) (14 Jun 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: Would it be possible to arrange for the Red Cross to try to get some of the civilian casualties out? While we may not know officially who has been injured, certain people in Britain have been informed about deaths and serious injuries to their relations and are deeply concerned because they cannot get any further information. Could not we attempt to contact the Red Cross to see whether...

Prayers: Unification Church (28 May 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: I am grateful to have the opportunity to raise in the House this morning the activities of the Unification Church. For some time now, I and other hon.

Orders of the Day — Bowes Bypass (6 Apr 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: My hon. Friend is comparing this with a bridge under the road. Mr. Dobinson does not require a bridge. He requires a cattle run, which is a tube like a drain through which the cattle run, and it costs about £50,000 to £60,000. The bridges that have been built cost about £120,000 to £130,000.

Orders of the Day — Bowes Bypass (6 Apr 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: I apologise to my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary for having to raise the problem of Bowes bypass with her. I realise that she has been at the Department for only a few weeks and that all the decisions on the road improvement were taken before she came to the Department. The A66 between Scotch Corner and Penrith is a notoriously difficult road, partly because of the terrain, as it runs over...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (Committal) (6 Apr 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: One of the reasons advanced against holding the Committee upstairs was that there was no room for a large number of the public or the press to listen to the debate. Since the hon. Gentleman started to speak, he has cleared the Strangers Gallery to such an extent that all the remaining members of the public could be accommodated in any Committee Room.

United Kingdom Trident Programme (29 Mar 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: The sadness of the message from the hon. Member for Salford, East (Mr. Allaun) is that—although I respect his view of where he ultimately wants to get to—he never points his finger away from one side of the Atlantic towards the Communists. All his criticism has been of the Americans, and he has said nothing about the Russians. Why does the CND always point its finger at our allies? As my...

United Kingdom Trident Programme (29 Mar 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: I am obliged for those remarks. However, when I have met representatives of the peace movement in my constituency, and in other areas, they have rarely mentioned the activities of the Russians, but always those of the Americans. The hon. Gentleman pointed out at the beginning of his speech that the Americans created the race, but I cannot possibly accept that argument.

United Kingdom Trident Programme (29 Mar 1982)

Sir Timothy Kitson: I was grateful for the way that my right hon. Friend introduced the debate. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Woking, I am grateful for the way that my right hon.

When I joined the Select Committee on Defence and we commenced our...
