Orders of the Day — Clause 2: General Implementation of Treaties (24 May 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I had not intended to intervene in this debate, but I have been stimulated to do so by the useful intervention of the hon.

Orders of the Day — Clause 2: General Implementation of Treaties (24 May 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: This is an important Amendment. [Interruption.] The right hon. Gentleman made the same speech for the 193rd time. I shall take it from anyone else, but not from him and that an hon. Member does not have a right to stand upon an occasion like this and ask for an explanation of the Amendment. [Interruption.] If the hon. Gentleman wants to talk about guillotines, let me tell him that I have been...

European Communities Bill ( 6 Mar 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I look back to the debates on the nationalised industries in the five years after the war and the undertakings we were given then.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (15 Feb 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: We have listened to one of the most extraordinary speeches we have heard for a long time in this House. The right hon. Member for Stepney (Mr. Shore) would leave one with some suspicion, having listened to his speech, that he does not care for the European Economic Community, he does not care for its enlargement and he does not care for any economic co-operation at all. What I find really...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (15 Feb 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: No, I am dealing with the right hon. Member for Stepney. The hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Michael Foot) has interrupted constantly during the last three or four days but with nothing constructive. I am dealing with a speech made by his right hon. Friend. I know that the hon. Member prefers talking to listening but for the moment I am dealing with his right hon. Friend. Clearly, he is...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (15 Feb 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: That is exactly what I am doing, but when the right hon. Gentlemen is officially making a keynote speech on this occasion he cannot even say "Personally my view is this or that" on a matter which has been argued for years in the European Parliament, in the Council of Europe and in all-party groups in this House. That shows how completely out of touch he must be with future parliamentary...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (15 Feb 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: My right hon. Friend says that it was 112. It would have been much more than that if there had been a free vote among hon. Members on the Opposition side, as there was on this side of the House. Instead, they were subjected to a strict three-line Whip. The fact is that there was an overwhelming vote in favour of joining the enlarged E.E.C. Parliament having willed the end, as I understand it...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (15 Feb 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: That is the sort of thing we have to institute. That is what we will want to do in the European Parliament. That is why the Europeans want us in. They want us to introduce constructive ideas and policies. They want us to work with them to ensure that these things are done. Secondly, we must consolidate. I believe that there are five international assemblies at the moment. There are too many...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (15 Feb 1972)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: I do not want to take up too much time as so many other hon. Members want to speak. There will obviously be a transitional period in which a number of hon. Members will have to attend the European Parliament as a number of them now attend the Council of Europe. That will be from 1st January, 1973. But sooner or later we will have to have direct elections to the European Parliament. This is...
