Deacons (Ordination of Women) Measure (28 Oct 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Unlike the hon. Members for Rutland and Melton (Mr. Latham) and for Newham, North-West (Mr. Banks). who intervened in his speech, I do not believe that the House is called upon to resolve any profound issues of theology or to investigate the relevance of the early history of the Church. I think that we are called upon to exercise the function of a legislature; the legislature for the time...

Mr Enoch Powell: Object.

Waste Disposal (Down District) (24 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I wish to make a point in the context of available powers. Surely the powers are available in the form of the enforcement of planning control. After all, I hope that a private individual who was given permission to carry out certain operations subject to conditions would have those conditions enforced upon him by the planning authority. As in this case the Minister is the planning authority,...

Waste Disposal (Down District) (24 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: There will be winds.

Waste Disposal (Down District) (24 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: It must strike you, Mr. Speaker, as happily and even providentially appropriate that so a long a debate that has ranged through the night over so many subjects should be terminating in the jaded and even mephitic atmosphere of the early hours of the morning by the consideration of the disposal of rubbish at a place called Drumnakelly in County Down in my constituency. But no one could argue...

Irish Foreign Minister (Representations) (16 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Is it not clear that, contrary to statements made by Her Majesty's Government, the Government of the Irish Republic are under the impression that the Anglo-Irish agreement has given them a voice in the internal administration of a part of the United Kingdom? What steps do the Government intend to take to correct that impression?

European Communities (Budget) (11 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Does the Minister of State recollect that at every stage in the process by which this House obtained control over taxation and thus over the government of the country it acted in excess of its then legal and constitutional powers? Is it not clear that, as was predictable and predicted, a directly elected assembly armed with the power to reject the budget and acting in collusion with the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (10 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Would it be convenient for the hon. Lady to deal at this point with a difficulty that exercises me and certain other right hon. and hon. Members? Effectively we are dealing with section 2(1) of the European Communities Act 1972. We are extending the treaties that are referred to in that section, which deals with the "rights, powers, liabilities, obligations and restrictions from time to time...

European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Provisions Relating to European Assembly (10 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: In the light of pressure on time, and the fact that clause 3(4) goes to the root of the Bill and raises matters that can be debated on the question, That the Bill be now read the Third time, I do not propose to move amendment No. 46.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (10 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: In this debate we are arguing and eventually voting for or against the principle of monetary union. If I am asked how I know that, my answer is because it says so. By article 20 we are writing into the law and the treaty Chapter 1,Co-operation in Economic and Monetary policy (Economic and Monetary Union) Note the brackets. It begins: In order to ensure the convergence of economic and monetary...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (10 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I shall give way to the hon. Gentleman, because he voted against the guillotine.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (10 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am wholly in agreement with the hon. Gentleman. He has performed a service to the debate by emphasising that point. We are not doing nothing by this legislation. We are doing something which is significant. It is something which will be quoted against us in future and to which we will be held, if not by future Governments of this country, by authorities external to this country with which...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (10 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: When the right hon. Member for Taunton (Sir E. du Cann) said that a vote against this amendment was a vote in favour of harmonisation of taxes, he spoke nothing less than the literal truth. We are putting a new article into the treaty, and that article is mandatory. It says: The Council shall … adopt provisions for the harmonisation of legislation concerning taxation. Reference was made at...

Northen Ireland (Criminal Justice) ( 9 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: It is only right to acknowledge with appreciation the Minister's courtesy in supplying most of those taking part in the debate with an explanation in his letter of 13 June, which he has partly repeated tonight, of the differences between the proposal form of the order and the draft before us. In every respect, it would appear that the changes made between those two stages are beneficial, and...

Northen Ireland (Criminal Justice) ( 9 Jul 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: That is an interesting intervention by the hon. Member for Stafford (Mr. Cash). I hope that he will turn out to be right, all the more so since part of my constituency is suffering at the moment from a plague of itinerants occupying sites which, under the most generous interpretation, are in no way suitable, but perhaps that is not directly related to the purpose of article 10. I hope that...
