Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food and Drink Industry (28 Mar 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: When my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister said a few moments ago that the ban on exporting beef was not based on scientific evidence and was wrong, did he mean that the ban was illegal? If it is illegal, what action does he intend to take about it in the European Community?

Intergovernmental Conference (21 Mar 1996)

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

Intergovernmental Conference (21 Mar 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: To take up the hon. Gentleman's point about the rule of law, does he agree that one of the ideas behind the rule of law is that one has a legitimate way of changing the law if one disagrees with it? Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, in European law, the citizens of this country have no legitimate hope that anything they say to change the treaty will succeed? Any suggestions for amendment...

Intergovernmental Conference (21 Mar 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: If the Government are in favour of variable geometry, why should that variable geometry not extend to allowing France, Germany and perhaps some countries surrounding Germany to enter a hard-core arrangement? If they think that that is to their advantage and we do not find anything wrong with it, why should they not get on with it?

Intergovernmental Conference (21 Mar 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The House understands that the Government's first objective will be to try to amend the treaty on the powers of the court, but we all know that that is very difficult. Is the Government's present position one of leaving open the possibility that they might in future refuse to obey one of the European Court's judgments?

Intergovernmental Conference (White Paper) (12 Mar 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: May I congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend on making it plain that Britain does not want any further moves towards federalism in Europe, but may I suggest that that will not be enough for the British people and that, at some stage, we shall have to say no to one of the ludicrous laws that comes from Brussels, to disobey and thus demonstrate to the peoples of Europe that we must have...

Common Fisheries Policy (Factortame Judgment) ( 6 Mar 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: If the Government lost a case before the Judicial Committee of the House of Lords, would my right hon. and learned Friend expect the Minister concerned to describe it publicly as "crazy" and the House of Commons to be up in arms, or would he expect a rather more respectful attitude to be adopted towards a judicial decision? Is it not clear from the attitude of the Minister, the House and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 5 Mar 1996)

Scott Report (26 Feb 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it would be extremely difficult to lay down any rules for ministerial accountability, because, essentially, it is a question for the House, and a question as to how much the House wants information? For instance, as far as negotiations with the IRA were concerned before the ceasefire, the House came to a misunderstanding as to the state of discussions...

Business of the House (22 Feb 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: May I urge my right hon. Friend to allow an early debate on the operation of the European convention on human rights? Now that the Prime Minister has said that there are defects in the way in which it works, will my right hon. Friend ensure that the Government explain to the House what, if any, disadvantage would be suffered by the United Kingdom if we were no longer a signatory to that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Planning Applications (22 Feb 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will my hon. Friend explain why the planning process in Northern Ireland cannot be carried out by properly elected local government? Will he give to the constitutional nationalists a sense of purpose and a proper role in the community of Ulster, and to a great extent stop their aspiration for a united Ireland, if necessary by force?

Scott Report (15 Feb 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my right hon. Friend agree that there will always be differences of opinion as to how much information it is in the national interest to make available to Parliament about such sensitive matters as arms sales? Academics, editors and judges will put forward their various views on how much information ought to be made available to a sovereign Parliament, but in the end the decision on how...

European Communities (Amendment) Act (12 Feb 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: rose

European Communities (Amendment) Act (12 Feb 1996)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Would the hon. Gentleman concede that there has been a clear division in the Government's economic policy between what happened before 16 September 1992 and what has happened since? For about two years, there was an extremely harsh squeeze, when the money supply dived down to a very low level and a great number of businesses went to the wall. Things have looked up enormously since then. The...
