Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Not necessarily.

Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: This is not the first Appropriation (Northern Ireland) Order that the Minister of State has introduced. I dare say that, as he approached the debate, he wondered what new oratorical splendours, what new ingenuities of argument, might be sought, to present again the case which has been presented from this Bench on previous debates on the order. I have to say, to his relief and, I hope, to the...

Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am much obliged to the hon. Gentleman, and I follow his thoughts closely. There is one section of his remarks, namely, that referring to legislation, into which I do not want to enter, because the case that I have laid before the House is self contained in so far as it goes and in so far as it relates to the granting of Supply. I agree entirely with the hon. Gentleman that the device of a...

Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: The hon. Gentleman is under a misapprehension. None of my hon. Friends is at present a member of a Select Committee of this House.

Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: The hon. Gentleman, my neighbour, may be a little confused. It is not possible for a person who is no longer an hon. Member of this House to remain a member of a Select Committee of the House. In consequence of that, my colleagues and I ceased to be members of the Select Committees on which we have served, and, as we have not been reappointed to those Select Committees, we are not at present...

Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am not sure, Mr. Deputy Speaker, whether I am competent to satisfy the hon. Gentleman's curiosity or whether in doing so I would be within the bounds of order. I am sure that there are sources in the House from which his curiosity on that point could be satisfied.

Orders of the Day — Appropriation (Northern Ireland) (10 Jun 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: My proposition is potentially beneficial to the House as a whole, in that it would enable the House to avoid the expenditure of time on a process which in itself is unhelpful to Northern Ireland and is repetitive in the cycle of the financial procedures of this House. It is also a method in which we should bring hon. Members representing Northern Ireland constituencies on to a parity of...

Orders of the Day — Privileges (20 May 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: The House finds itself obliged tonight to come to a decision which will be momentous in the future for the effectiveness of its proceedings, for it relies and always has relied to a considerable extent on the information and advice which is tendered to it as a result of the work of the Select Committees which it establishes. In turn, that work is essentially dependent on the confidentiality...

Hong Kong (13 May 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: British overseas citizens.

Hong Kong (13 May 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: It has already been noted that the House had an earlier and more lengthy opportunity of considering substantially this order on 16 January. However, on 16 January it so happened, for reasons which are not directly connected with the future of Hong Kong, that I was not a Member of the House. Therefore, I take the opportunity as briefly as possible afforded by tonight's debate of placing on...

Syria (12 May 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Would the Government he prepared to waive diplomatic immunity if a corresponding request were made to us by another country such as the Soviet Union or Syria?

Business of the House ( 8 May 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: On Tuesday, will arrangements be made to ensure that there is adequate time to debate the Hong Kong order?

Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment Vessels (24 Apr 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Will the right hon. Gentleman accept that the decision which he has just announced is a recognition of the competitive efficiency of the Belfast firm and the value of the firm's work force? Will he emphasise the fact that employment in many other parts of the United Kingdom will flow from placing this contract with Harland and Wolff?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (23 Apr 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Not all of us.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (23 Apr 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: The Secretary of State has told the House that the provisions for political co-operation are not embodied in our law by the Bill. That is what I understood him to say. Could he explain how the embodiment of title I does not do that, because article 3.2 of title I appears specifically to bring into force the contents of title III?

Libya (15 Apr 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Has it not become clear from these events to the people of this country how flimsy would be our protection against the use of bases on British soil for the launching of nuclear operations?

Royal Ulster Constabulary ( 8 Apr 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: Does the right hon. Gentleman remember that he and the Prime Minister were told in advance of the disastrous consequences that would inevitably ensue if they went ahead and made this agreement? What shall be done to the evil counsellors to whom they listened instead?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (24 Mar 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I do not share what appears to be the belief of the right hon. and learned Member for Richmond, Yorks (Mr. Brittan) that if we can find a satisfactory form of monetary measurement we can therefore find the means of manipulating it. As to the advantages of having a fixed exchange rate, I shall arrive at an opposite conclusion from him. Under the pressure of time, however, I want to restrict...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (24 Mar 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am sure that the Japanese have found it possible to combine a surplus on their current account with high employment at home. Different economies, at different stages of development and in different circumstances, will differ in that respect. What I cannot believe is that the Japanese have succeeded in achieving in one and the same year a surplus on current account and also a surplus on...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (24 Mar 1986)

Mr Enoch Powell: I follow the right hon. Gentleman entirely in that I do not think that it is easy to quantify or predict the result of changing a given factor in the balance of payments analysis. Some of the factors which, in themselves, are inherently negative may turn out, in their repercussions and indirect effects, to be positive overall. To that extent, I agree with the right hon. Gentleman. I now...
