Orders of the Day — Home Affairs (28 Oct 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: rose—

Prayers: Business of the House (24 Oct 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my right hon. Friend agree that speedy and agreed measures often lead to ill-considered and bad legislation, which is what happened with the Dangerous Dogs Act 1989? Is there a danger that the House, in its sympathy for the parents of Dunblane, will forget the legitimate arguments of the people who practise their skills in gun clubs? Would not it be better to have a careful debate on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the mechanisms for distributing payments made under the common agricultural policy to European Union farmers. [36406]

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Common Agricultural Policy (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my hon. Friend agree that the most important distribution is between the European Union and member states? What proportion of the enormous payments that will be made to British farmers under the BSE eradication scheme will be met by the common agricultural policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Steel (17 Jul 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will my right hon. Friend concede that, although the steel and manufacturing industries are important to this country, they are but sectional interests? This afternoon's questions show that the Labour party is constantly looking for special support from the taxpayer, and special concessions to various sections of the economy that it favours. If that is going to be the way, there will be a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Intergovernmental Conference (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that one of the first requirements of the IGC's success is that the Commission and the nation states honour the opt-outs that were obtained at Maastricht? In view of the disgraceful way in which the Commission and other nation states have acted in complete breach of trust by bringing forward the working time directive, will he ensure that the...

Business of the House ( 4 Jul 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Further to the discussion about the European directive on the 48-hour week, will my right hon. Friend confirm that he expects the European Court to give its judgment some time this week? However, it is likely that the deliberations of the IGC will not be concluded for about 18 months. If the European Court attempts to enforce any adverse judgment against Britain, will my hon. Friend confirm...

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: I begin by declaring an interest because I own a small beef herd. I make no apology for speaking in the debate because my constituents, who are urban dwellers, have an interest in the large cost of the deal with Europe, which they will have to fund, and they also wish to know that the beef they eat is safe and healthy. The attack launched by the hon. Member for North Cornwall (Mr. Tyler)...

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does the hon. Gentleman recall that, during that time, there were frequent recollections by hon. Members on both sides of the House that the regulations should not be stringently enforced against those abattoirs that were having to come to terms with new European regulations? If they had been stringently enforced, there would have been a frightful row from all the abattoir owners.

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The hon. Gentleman has mentioned a large number of proposals, which he says that the Labour party wanted to be put in place before anyone knew that there was any risk of transmission to humans. It is all very well being wise after the event, but perhaps he will tell us how much all that would have cost.

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The hon. Member for Workington mentioned the correct way to deal with specified bovine offal. Will my hon. Friend confirm that there was no suspicion in 1994 that transmission might occur between cows and humans? If all the small abattoir owners had been chased ruthlessly and dictatorially by the Government, there would have been an enormous public outcry against the heavy hand of the...

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: May I assist my hon. Friend in the process of informing farmers? If the backlog will not be cleared until October, presumably the new cattle involved in the selective cull cannot be selected for slaughter until November at the earliest.

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The House regrets this enormously expensive and cruel selective cull, but is there any evidence that the European Commission would have accepted a lesser number of cattle?

Opposition Day: BSE (25 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: This is a sad speech for a Liberal Euro-enthusiast to make. Presumably, it means that his party is going to change its attitude because of the fundamental unreliability of Europe on so many important issues.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Identity Cards ( 6 Jun 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the smartcard, which is required from people who are applying for payment under social security rules, is a form of voluntary identity card? Could not that smartcard principle be applied to a host of other circumstances in which the citizen comes into contact with the agencies of the state?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Commission ( 8 May 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my hon. Friend agree that the powers of the European Parliament illustrate that we have a half-formed federal structure in Europe? Does he agree that either we will have the disadvantages of there being no proper control over the Commission or, if we give the European Parliament extra powers, we will give it powers over this House and other democratic assemblies in Europe, which will...

BSE (Agriculture Council) ( 1 May 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will my right hon. and learned Friend confirm that, if he were to introduce a scheme of compulsory killing of healthy cattle to reassure European consumers, he would need fresh primary legislation in this Parliament? Does he agree that, judging by the views of the House this afternoon, it would be very unlikely that such a Bill would pass the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Taxation (18 Apr 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Has my right hon. and learned Friend received any advice recently from one of the most distinguished Labour statesmen, Lord Healey, who said in 1977 that he intended to squeeze the rich until the pips squeaked?

BSE ( 3 Apr 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: I declare an interest, as I have a suckler herd. Does my right hon. and learned Friend recognise that there is a world of difference between using culled cows for a different purpose and the compulsory, and, as he admits, unnecessary, slaughter of healthy working herds which, in some instances, have been kept by families for generations? If the European Union, in its arbitrary, unaccountable...
