Education (Northern Ireland) ( 5 Feb 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: Yes, they were told so. Very often these mistakes are made by Governments which have been told so; but the power of fashion in its heyday is almost irresistible. There is an element of fashion in play in what we are doing here. We must not be surprised if in years to come those parents and others who have welcomed the prospect of mentally handicapped children having their special educational...

High Court Injunction (Mr. Speaker's Order) (27 Jan 1987)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am sorry that this motion has been placed before the House in its present terms, and I hope that the House will refrain from converting it into a resolution but will resort to passing the written amendment referred to at an earlier stage and make use of the advice that ought to be sought upon a profound matter of this kind from the Select Committee of Privileges which the House has for that...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Bill (16 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: At present.

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Bill (16 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Will the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland confirm that it would be in order in the debate upon the motion for the Second Reading of this Bill to refer to the existing order which is the subject of the next item of business? When dealing with a Bill which amends the existing order, it is extremely difficult to draw a line between discussion of the...

Orders of the Day — Health (Northern Ireland) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am sure that the House is indebted to the hon. Gentleman for the candour with which he has recognised what I think we would all see as a deficiency in the order as it has been presented to us. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will accept that this is yet another illustration of the general proposition that there is no substitute for making law by Bill.

Orders of the Day — Health (Northern Ireland) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: This is a miscellaneous order and comment upon it is therefore necessarily also miscellaneous. It may be convenient to the Minister if I designate first those articles with which I am not merely in agreement but in enthusiastic agreement. I will then come to the articles that I do not like and finish with the articles on which I and perhaps the House would welcome further explanation. First,...

Orders of the Day — Health (Northern Ireland) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am glad to receive a negative signal from the Minister, but I should be grateful—and I suspect that other hon. Members would be grateful—if he could explain at some little length how article 7 will work and why it is necessary. I now turn to the area traversed by the right hon. and learned Member for Warley, West (Mr. Archer), covering articles 16 to 18, especially article 17....

Orders of the Day — Health (Northern Ireland) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Has the right hon. and learned Gentleman fallen into the trap in the 1974 Act and failed to write in "Secretary of State" wherever he reads "Department" in one of these orders?

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Appropriation (No. 3) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: In moving the order, the Minister of State referred to the fact that it is the first such order which it has fallen to him to lay before the House. There has been a certain repetitiveness in the debates we have had on these triannual orders over preceding years. If I refer to that matter I hope that I shall receive the same tolerance as you extended, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to the right hon. and...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Appropriation (No. 3) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I was hoping to work into my few remaining remarks, of course not in entirely uncomplimentary fashion, some allusion to the antipodean gladiatorial performances of the Cabinet Secretary. This is a matter that still requires to be probed and who better to probe it in the correct context than the Cabinet Secretary? One day he will be back from his travels. Perhaps then the Prime Minister will...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Appropriation (No. 3) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I submit that, as the effect of the order is to maintain the Northern Ireland Consolidated Fund, and as the existence of that fund has been one of the topics of each successive debate upon the order, that also is within the scope of the order because, without it, that fund would not be sustainable.

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Appropriation (No. 3) ( 4 Dec 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: With respect, Mr. Deputy Speaker, the necessity for the order is due to the existence of a separate Consolidated Fund for Northern Ireland, and that applies equally to an order which relates to Supplementary Estimates as well as to an order which refers to the main Estimates.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill (27 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: At the outset of the speech in which he commended the Bill to the House, the Home Secretary emphasised the sheer volume and quantity of amendment and reform of the criminal law and the law of administration of criminal justice which has taken place in the past few years. Listening to his Second Reading speech, too, one was bound to say to oneself that here were five or six Second Reading...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill (27 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I was about to refer to what seemed to me the major flaws in the innovation and its major inconsistencies with what people would regard as the principles of our criminal justice. In the first place, the innovation superimposes what is in effect an additional penalty—and a severe one—upon the penalties which have been prescribed by statute for the offences in question. We go to...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill (27 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: That is obviously a matter that needs to be examined closely in Committee. It may be possible by work in Committee to amend part IV so as to correct some of the inherent flaws. They might at least be considerably reduced, if not eliminated altogether. The student of part IV of the Bill as it stands finds himself contemplating a situation where, in effect, the defendant is presented with a...

Opposition Day: Terrorism (26 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: It is in the Act.

Opposition Day: Terrorism (26 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Like the hon. Member for Bury St. Edmunds (Sir E. Griffiths), I do not intend to follow the hon. Member for Hammersmith (Mr. Soley) in his ruminations, many of which could properly be dealt with only in a debate specifically devoted to considering circumstances in Northern Ireland. This order deals with extradition from the United Kingdom, but, in so far as it is necessary to enable the...

Prime Minister (Visit to Washington) (18 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Why, for the purposes of the Prime Minister's conference with the American President, was it necessary that officials of the Northern Ireland office should be kept on constant availability to supply emergency briefing?

Autumn Statement ( 6 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Does the Chancellor of the Exchequer recognise that the ending of the long run of large surpluses on the current account of the balance of payments should be greatly welcomed in view of its beneficial effect upon the level of economic and, particularly, industrial activity?

Cereals (Co-responsibility Levy) ( 5 Nov 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am grateful for this brief opportunity to protest against these proposals on behalf of many of my constituents, and many in the Province of which my constituency is a part, who will suffer as a result of them. Tonight is one of those miserable occasions to which the House has become accustomed since it resigned its powers in order to become part of the EEC, when a Minister says to the...
