Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Perhaps I can continue my speech without the interruptions.

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: When one goes to Europe one finds it difficult to explain what the British Labour Party is doing. No doubt Labour hon. Members will vote for the Adjournment on lines which they cannot prevent. Those of us who remember well Mr. Ernest Bevin, and all the other leaders of the Labour Party who helped social democracy to get going in Europe in the years after 1945 will find extraordinary what is...

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I agree in part with the right hon. Gentleman. I agree in part that all of us who had a chance after the war to press on and to write the rule book then, did not do so. I share in any blame that the right hon. Gentleman ascribes. I accept that criticism. But now that we have taken this decision, it is right to press on and do our best. I think that the right hon. Member for Stepney said, "I...

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I am sorry. I should not have tried to make that kind of joke.

Bill Presented: European Community Affairs (27 Nov 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: The point I am trying to make is that we have quite a lot of experience in the United Kingdom. There are said to be 46,000 migrant British in North Germany, though I cannot believe that there are as many as that. This is a problem which we must watch, but it will not affect us so much as other countries in the Community because we already have a good policy, which deals with the problems that...

Sugar (24 Oct 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I entirely support the hon. Member for Roxburgh, Selkirk and Peebles (Mr. David Steel) in his point at the end to which I shall refer again. I am glad that, as he said, the whole of the House can support the motion, because it is important at this time that we should do so. I am glad that the right hon. Member for Stepney (Mr. Shore) has shown some resistance to the usual temptations to use...

Sugar (24 Oct 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Not in detail at the moment, no, but these are the areas—[Laughter.] That is a typical instance, with respect, of how the good faith of the Commission is called into question in an intervention. I am sorry that my right hon. Friend should have done that, because it is not characteristic of his usual constructive outlook. But I can assure him that every effort is being made by those...

Sugar (24 Oct 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Sufficient detail is given to show the general attitude of the Commission to this problem. I am in a difficult position, because I cannot anticipate anything that I may say in a report. But I take the point and I hope that the hon. Gentleman will find, that, when this is finally resolved, it will come out satisfactorily. Beyond this, I believe that, just as the Commonwealth Sugar Agreement...

Middle East (22 Oct 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Can the Foreign Secretary say whether any progress has been made in the Council of Ministers towards a European underwriting of any final settlement?

Orders of the Day — Middle East (18 Oct 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: The right hon. Member for Ful-ham (Mr. Michael Stewart) has had considerable experience in recent years of trying to solve this acute problem. I agree with much of his analysis but not with the conclusions to which he comes. I will not go backwards. I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman, like every hon. Member is heart sick that we are again discussing the Middle East, for the fourth time...

Orders of the Day — Middle East (18 Oct 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: That is another point which it is for hon. Members on both sides to put to the Government. I believe that the declaration made by my right hon. Friend should reassure the Israelis and remove some of the fears that have been expressed in the debate today. I believe that any final settlement must be a package based broadly on the 1956 suggestion, in the Johnson Plan, that includes security,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Commonwealth — EEC Relationships (25 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Does not the Minister agree that the proposals put forward by the Commission, for example, on sugar, could be very satisfactory to the Commonwealth?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Commonwealth — EEC Relationships (25 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: As a member of the committee concerned, at the European Parliament, may I say that the implications of the hon. Member's question are entirely wrong—[HON. MEMBERS: "Question".] Is the Minister aware that the Commission and the committee concerned have taken the greatest trouble to see that all concerned should be treated—

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Commonwealth — EEC Relationships (25 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: —on the same basis, and that Her Majesty's Government be given all reasonable help to see that the facts are put to the countries concerned?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rhodesia (25 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: While maintaining the status quo, would it be possible to offer the training facilities that were suggested two years ago as port of an overall settlement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Sahelian Africa (Drought) (25 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Will my right hon. Friend see whether it is possible to do some pre-planning by the seven members of WEU which are members of the Community, so that we can anticipate the need that has been shown in the last three months instead of going in for the sort of ad hocery about which we have heard?

Eec Ministerial Meetings (25 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Is my right hon. Friend aware that these matters have been discussed in a committee of the European Parliament for some time in the absence of Opposition Members and that their absence has been regretted, especially the absence of so many individuals who are constructive and could help so much in these deliberations? I thank my right hon. Friend for coming so promptly to the House, which is...

Agriculture (Eec Ministers' Meeting) (18 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his statement will give considerable satisfaction and encouragement to the Commonwealth sugar producers who have done such a wonderful job for this country and have helped themselves over the last 30 years? Will my right hon. Friend give guidance about the extent to which the proposed cut of about 600,000 tons in Continental beet production can be more than...

European Security and Cooperation (Helsinki Conference) ( 9 Jul 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there was widespread support at the European Parliament last week for the proposals which he and other delegates put forward for practical action and not just for empty speeches which were rather too apparent among other delegates?

Channel Tunnel (15 Jun 1973)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: As speeches generally have run to about twice the length Mr. Speaker advised, I shall try to cut my time in half, much of what I wish to say having been said by the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Mr. Ogden) and by my right hon. Friend the Member for Ashford (Mr. Deedes). Like the hon. Member for West Derby, I have had the privilege of being one of the officers—a joint...
