Friend give the House an assurance that, in view of the extreme intimidation and distress undergone by so many moderate miners in the dispute, and in view of the enormous courage shown by those miners, the Government have no plans to try to persuade the NCB to bring the dispute to a speedy conclusion that negates the essential principles on which the board is standing?

Dairy Produce Quotas (18 Jul 1984)

The continued rise of unemployment after more than two years of recovery is alarming and it is no...

Autumn Statement (6 Dec 1984)

Mr Robert Harvey: I would prefer not to give way because I have limited time. I am sorry. In one industry after another throughout Britain, employers are working with more computers and fewer people. A local electricity board that serves my constituency employs 3,000 fewer people.

Estimates Day: Falkland Islands (Foreign Affairs Committee Report) (14 Mar 1985)

Mr Robert Harvey: There is much in the Government's response to the Select Committee's report on the Falklands that is sound common sense.

That point has been...
