Northern Ireland ( 4 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: When the Prime Minister in the last few days entered into discussions on behalf of this country with the representatives of other nations, she set out clearly to the House what the objectives were, what she wanted, what she was prepared to accept and what she was not prepared to accept. Would it not be helpful if the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland would do that in the relations...

Northern Ireland ( 4 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Is the right hon. Gentleman so innocent that he is unaware that the Irish Republic lays on finds and those operations when they fit the phase in which it finds itself in its negotiations with the British Government?

Orders of the Day — Credit Unions (Northern Ireland) ( 3 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: During the last debate the Minister undertook to convey the observations by the right hon. and learned Member for Warley, West (Mr. Archer) to his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. I shall reverse the process and refer the Minister to his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, in particular to what the Secretary of State said about the renewal of the interim period order. He made a...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Northern Ireland) ( 3 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I wonder whether the Minister is applying sufficiently rigorously his dual classification of the travellers. I shall illustrate that briefly by contrast. There is in Newry a site that has almost always been traditionally occupied by travellers or gipsies and which it is proposed to deal with by the provision of a deliberate site some distance away. On the other hand, in Downpatrick there...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Northern Ireland) ( 3 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Before the Minister leaves the matter of graffiti, could he do anything about persuading the parliamentary draftsman to treat "graffiti" as what it is, a plural and not a singular? There is a solecism in the order as it stands.

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Northern Ireland) ( 3 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: My hon. Friend has almost opened up a debate within a debate on the topic of carryout shops. Does he agree that effective control of carry-out shops is not possible unless there is also effective control of mobile shops, which are often in competition with the carry-out shops, and which are often an even greater nuisance in the neighbourhood? Areas such as parts of my constituency adjacent to...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Northern Ireland) ( 3 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: A mobile shop selling beefburgers.

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Northern Ireland) ( 3 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am glad to be able to take up the admirable speech of the right hon. and learned Member for Warley, West (Mr. Archer). I hope that he will not take it as in any patronising on my part if I say that his speeches as Opposition spokesman on Northern Ireland affairs have become closer to the apprehension of the affairs of Northern Ireland as it is held by my right hon. and hon. Friends. We have...

Business of the House (27 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Will the Leader of the House confirm that he will provide an extra hour for the debate on the first of the two Northern Ireland orders set down on Wednesday? Will he also do his best to avoid statements on Thursday, which would curtail time for the subsequent debate on the motion?

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Act 1974 (26 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Yes, they will. There are several thousand.

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act 1978 (26 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I wish to use the opportunity given by this debate to refute a common assumption which has serious consequences for security in Northern Ireland and has been one of the causes of the perversion of Government policy in dealing with it. It featured in the speech with which the Secretary of State opened the debate. I refer to the assumption that for the successful combating of the Provisional...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Finance) Bill (25 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: The Americans do not speak to the hon. Gentleman; they speak to his Front Bench.

Terrorism (25 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Have the Government taken note that once again the operations of the Provisional IRA have been pointedly used to bring pressure to bear on Her Majesty's Government in the context of the conclusion of certain arrangements with the Irish Government?

European Community (20 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: When the Minister uses the expression "publicly", is it now envisaged, as many of us have long thought should be the case, that the proceedings of the Council should be public and reported, since the Council is the legislature of the Community? How, otherwise, can the declaration be public?

Prayers: Government's Policy for Science (14 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: It is not my intention to add to the Government's embarrassments by joining in the general demand for a more or less massive increase in expenditure. I want instead to warn the Government of an imminent embarrassment towards which they are drifting in an area related to the topic before the House and to indicate to them the way in which they could avoid it. The key document in this matter is...

Prayers: Government's Policy for Science (14 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: No, I shall not give way I hope that the hon. Gentleman will not mind if I continue It is part of my habit to give way to the hon. Gentleman, but I have, in a debate in which a number of hon. Members wish to speak, a substantial speech to make and I hope that he will allow me to pursue it. Several times already in the course of the debate, quotations have been offered from Nature It was on 7...

Prayers: Government's Policy for Science (14 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: It was a very good answer. He said he did not know. He said that his Department did not know. So here all this agitation was going on, and yet the Minister was quite unable to draw attention to any establishment in which anything happening was incompatible with terms of the legislation to which he was personally opposed. Therefore, I was not altogether surprised when, in the couple of...

Prayers: Government's Policy for Science (14 Jun 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Yes. I will go further. I am in the middle of it.
