New clause 4: Payments in Respect of Firearms Rendered Unlawful ( 4 Dec 1996)

New clause 4: Payments in Respect of Firearms Rendered Unlawful ( 4 Dec 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: These claims, as I said earlier, were entirely foreseeable. One did not have to be a genius, or even a fellow of All Souls, to foresee them.

Points of Order ( 4 Dec 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. It is normal for there to be a period of reflection between Report and Third Reading of any Bill. This gives an opportunity for those who are affected to advise their Member of Parliament as to whether they wish him or her to support the Third Reading or not. This period of reflection will not be allowed in respect of the Firearms (Amendment) Bill, which is...

Economic and Finance Council ( 3 Dec 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will my right hon. and learned Friend confirm that the other countries of the European Union regard our floating exchange rate as conferring upon us a grossly unfair advantage? Will he tell us whether he achieved anything in his negotiations this week that will protect us from retribution from the other countries?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 2 Dec 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: I want to make only one point, about the importance of monetary policy, and to invite the Chancellor to give us a better, more detailed explanation of his monetary policy. Tonight, we have very reasonably heard many pleas for better treatment. The hon. Member for Dudley, West (Mr Pearson) believes—as no doubt do many members of the Labour party—that the state is the great provider of...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 2 Dec 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman has modified his position, because it seemed to me that, every time he mentioned an activity, he suggested that it could move from poverty to prosperity as a result of state action. We all know that the role of the state, although much enlarged—many of us believe that it should be diminished—is not the primary factor in deciding this country's...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 2 Dec 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Chairman.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Labour Statistics (28 Nov 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will my hon. Friend confirm that the most important factors that decide the employment level at any one time are completely outside the control of any Government? Will he also confirm that the recent rise in sterling, which had an effect on manufacturing industry, was outside the control of the Government, and unexpected by them? Is not that a very good indication of how the pound can never...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (27 Nov 1996)

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (27 Nov 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: But my right hon. Friend has not answered the point of the question. It was asserted that the pound had gone up as a result of higher interest rates. There is no necessary connection between the two, is there?

Interpretation (18 Nov 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The whole House knows that this guillotine is bad and even disgraceful. The proper use of the guillotine occurs when there have been excessive speeches or filibustering and when the sense of the House is that the legitimate opposition to a measure has gone too far and has ceased to have any support from outside; we then reluctantly proceed to curtail the debate. This is the worst sort of...

Interpretation (18 Nov 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: That is entirely different. My point is that this legislation is directed towards the 4 per cent. of offences that are committed with legally held handguns. We are proposing expensive, cumbersome legislation, which is said to be demanded by the Dunblane parents—

Interpretation (18 Nov 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Hon. Members always believe that the whole nation must have been listening to our excellent speeches, especially if it is their own speech, and that it has heard the arguments. That is not so. Most people outside the House are uninterested in the great issues.

Interpretation (18 Nov 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: I shall explain. It is by repetition, by argument and by demonstrating that there are people who hold a contrary view with as much force as those who hold the other view that we begin to understand that, in our grief or anger, we may be mistaken. The legislation tries to reduce the 4 per cent. of crimes that are committed by people with legally held handguns. It is reasonable to carry out our...
