Orders of the Day — Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (23 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: The hon. Gentleman is a grandson of Tom Mann. I am sure that his grandfather whizzes round in his grave every time he hears him speak. The Queen's Speech says: Legislation will be introduced to make further reforms in industrial relations and trade union law. Will those reforms be in the interests of the workers in the trade union movement? They are based on two Green Papers, one entitled...

Orders of the Day — Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (23 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: No, I have only 10 minutes. It is bad enough trying to make all one's points in 10 minutes without being interrupted. I have been a little disappointed by members of my party's Front Bench over the past two days. I did not hear the leader of my party make one reference to the Government's industrial relations proposals. I am sorry about that. I am sorry, too, that in debating freedom, no...

Debate on the Address: First Day (21 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Earlier, the Prime Minister talked about people owning their own homes and how much better off they are under this Government. Would she like to explain that to my constituent who came to see me at my surgery on Saturday? He left the armed forces to work on an oil rig. He bought his own home, but his son met with a serious accident. He had to give up work to look after his child, but is now...

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: I draw the right hon. Gentleman's attention to an article by the former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath), who stated: Any visitor to that country would tell you that whatever the natural dislike of the Cambodian people for their aggressive neighbours, the vast majority is far more horrified by the prospect of a return to power of the Khmer Rouge....

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Before the right hon. Gentleman resumes his speech, I must point out that the Labour Government were wrong in what they said about the Vietnamese. Does what has happened, with the stopping of more than 2 million people—because 2 million people were killed—mean nothing at all to the right hon. Gentleman?

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Did Heath Pilgerise as well?

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Has the Prime Minister never made any mistakes?

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: rose——

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Will the Minster give way?

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: This is an important point. The Minister said that the Government had never given support to the Khmer Rouge, but have the Government ever challenged the credentials of those who sit in the United Nations and who are known to be Khmer Rouge?

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Has my right hon. Friend seen the absolutely amazing and excellent article by the former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath)? It states: The main difference is that the Americans killed thousands of Cambodian civilians in their attempts to destroy North Vietnamese supply lines whereas the Vietnamese invasion ended the systematic murder of Cambodians by...

Clause 71: Duty to Keep Housing Revenue Account ( 7 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: My hon. Friend is right that the situation is getting worse. Just after the war, when we were faced with the destruction of so many homes, the Government of the time, which happened to be Labour, gave hope to the people because they built council houses. I lived in two rooms for 12 years and I know about housing problems. At least we had the hope, however, that, sooner or later, we would get...

Points of Order ( 7 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. It is now one and a half hours since the Prime Minister left the Chamber. I wanted to raise a point of order about something that the Prime Minister said at Question Time, but I could not do so because of a ruling that you made. The Prime Minister is probably on her way to America or Russia by now. It is absurd that I can raise my point of order only now, one...

Points of Order ( 7 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: That is not what I said in my point of order.

Points of Order ( 7 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. Are you now ruling that hon. Members on either side can say just about anything about citizens for whom you are responsible? We are all responsible to the people who elect us to the House. Are you now saying that it does not matter what the Prime Minister or any other individual says in the House about people, even if it is a downright lie, and...

Economic and Monetary Union ( 2 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: I want to understand precisely what is being said. My right hon. and learned Friend has said that the Labour party's proposals were accepted by the European Parliament. When did the Labour party discuss these matters? Were they discussed at the party conference, or were they discussed by the European Labour group and agreed to? Have we discussed the matters within the parliamentary party?...

Points of Order ( 2 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You probably consider me to be a nuisance but, as I have always been a nuisance, I intend to continue to be one as long as I am here. I think that you have to reconsider your ruling on hon. Members raising genuine points of order when an issue is raised in Question Time or at any other time. I know that you, or perhaps your predecessors, were quite rightly...

Points of Order ( 1 Nov 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You say that you have referred the matter raised in the earlier point of order to the Services Committee. Does that mean that the Committee will report back to you so that you in turn can report to the House? This is a matter not just for the Services Committee but for the House, and it is you, Mr. Speaker, to whom we look to protect the interests of the House.

Opposition Day: Economic Policy (31 Oct 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: The right hon. Gentleman talks about the housing problem. Is he aware that the Government have been responsible for cutting council housing? They have encouraged the idea that people should buy their own homes and now they have implemented a policy of high mortgage rates, which means that the very people whom they encouraged to buy are suffering under their policies. How can the right hon....

Jaguar PLC (31 Oct 1989)

Mr Eric Heffer: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker.
