Standards in Public Life ( 6 Nov 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. Is this a satisfactory way to decide who in some instances shall be a Member of the House? Is not the matter of wider interest to the country as a whole, and ought it not to be dealt with by legislation analogous to the Representation of the People Act 1991?

Prescription Charges (Exemptions) (19 Oct 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my hon. Friend agree that the European Union is a half-formed federal structure which has no means of enforcing its judgments against Britain? Does he agree that the time is rapidly approaching when the only honourable and sensible thing to say in response to the gross interference in our domestic affairs is that we will not obey the orders of the European Court?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Race Relations (19 Oct 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that good race relations depends to a great extent on firm immigration control? He is to be congratulated on his attitude to border controls. It is believed that, since 1984, a quarter of a million Sikhs have sought asylum in Germany. If there were not good border controls, there would be a strong chance that those Sikhs would join their many...

Bill Presented: The Economy (12 Jul 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The hon. Member for Alyn and Deeside (Mr. Jones) did not just talk about investment in manufacturing, but made a specific request for grants for the aerospace industry. Is the Labour party in favour of that?

Bill Presented: The Economy (12 Jul 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The hon. Member for Monklands, East (Mrs. Liddell) represents a considerable strand of the Labour party. She is fluent, she has an attractive way of addressing problems, she has confidence and vigour, and she plainly addresses herself to that great body of those in the private sector who are temporarily disenchanted with the Government. They look at the policies of new Labour and they say to...

Bill Presented: The Economy (12 Jul 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that it must always be the Chancellor's duty to decide how quickly the inflation target should be met? He must take into account wider social and economic considerations than the Bank can ever take into account.

Bill Presented: The Economy (12 Jul 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will the hon. Gentleman explain a little further his proposals for extra committees within the Bank of England? Is he really proposing that there should be some form of independence in the Bank of England, or is that just a bit of window dressing? Does he agree with the Government that, ultimately, any Government must take political responsibility for interest rates and be responsible to the...

Bill Presented: The Economy (12 Jul 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Orders of the Day — European Union (21 Jun 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Can my right hon. Friend tell the House what the money to be spent in the Mediterranean will be used for? Is there not a slight tendency for some of the Euro-money spent in the Mediterranean to be frittered away by fraud? I am sure that my right hon. Friend would wish to reassure the House on that subject.

Orders of the Day — European Union (21 Jun 1995)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Bosnia ( 7 Jun 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: If it be true that there is risk that the Bosnian war might spread across the map of Europe and involve Russia and the United States coming in on opposite sides, why are we talking about withdrawing the troops?

Bosnia (31 May 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: It is a pleasure and a privilege to take part in this debate. The hon. Member for Ynys Môn (Mr. Jones) did well to end his speech by reminding us of the plight of the families of the 33 soldiers who have been taken hostage. One of the questions that those of my generation ask ourselves before embarking on a political career is in what circumstances we would ask the young men of this country...

Bosnia (31 May 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Three weeks ago, my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary said that there was risk of a war that would range the United States and Russia on different sides. If that was true and if there was such a foreseeable risk, is not it unbelievable that there should be any possibility of withdrawing our troops? Was not that argument simply thrown in to justify an intervention that at first hand was...

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does my right hon. Friend agree that there is a world of difference between regulating the procedures of the House and imposing—by means of a motion in the House—a particular and new condition on all persons who wish to become Members of Parliament? For instance, it would have been wrong, would it not, for the House of Commons to say that no Member of Parliament could be a clergyman in...

Mr Nicholas Budgen: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that all this talk about the seven principles of public life—

Committee on Standards in Public Life (18 May 1995)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: The House may not have objected to the original arrangements for registration, but the Nolan suggestions go a great deal further. They are designed not to deal with the way in which we serve in the House but to set down the terms and conditions of that service and to influence the way in which we behave outside the House. The House might have decided not to be difficult about registration,...
