Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Act 1982 (Amendment) Bill ( 2 Dec 1983)

Mr Ken Maginnis: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The luck of the draw—how I wish that that luck had been a little better—has given me the privilege of seeking at a relatively early stage in the life of this Parliament to implement one part of the policy on which members of my party were elected to this place in June. It was a policy which earned my party 65 per cent. of Northern...

Orders of the Day — Video Recordings Bill (11 Nov 1983)

Maze Prison (24 Oct 1983)

Mr Ken Maginnis: Does the Secretary of State accept that the foul murder this morning, less than three miles from the border with the Irish Republic, of my constituent, Mr. Cyrus Campbell, was the inevitable result of the boost given to Republican terrorism by the Maze escape?

Defence Estimates (19 Jul 1983)

Mr Ken Maginnis: It is not inappropriate that I should speak for the first time in this House, in a debate on defence. From both a family and a constituency point of view I find it easy to identify with our security forces. It is a tradition in Ulster for people to volunteer to serve in the security forces. There has never been conscription in Ulster, not even during the last war. In my own family, an uncle...
