Orders of the Day — Anglo-Irish Agreement (27 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: rose—

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Irish Agreement (27 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: The Secretary of State said that the Government would consider methods of keeping this House and others informed of the work of the conference. How does he reconcile that with the statement in the communiqué: The two Governments envisage that the meetings and agenda of the Conference will not normally be announced"? If the meetings and the agenda are not made known, what can be?

Anglo-Irish Agreement (26 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: That is right; and then let the agreement be applied to the whole of the United Kingdom.

Anglo-Irish Agreement (26 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Serve them right.

Televising of the House (20 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Despite the modesty of the manner and content of the proposal which was laid before the House at the beginning of the debate, and the helpful and judicious examination by the Leader of the House of the technical and experimental aspects, the House is being invited to take a decision in principle in favour or otherwise of the televising of the proceedings of the House. The present generation...

Anglo-Irish Agreement (18 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Oh!

Anglo-Irish Agreement (18 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Will the Prime Minister be completely candid with the House and the public about what is contemplated in the context of the administration of justice, especially in view of the discussions that have taken place on the operation of mixed courts in Northern Ireland?

Business of the House ( 7 Nov 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: The motion—which the Leader of the House has just motionlessly made—relates to the availability of time for legislation initiated by Private Members. There arose, in the course of the last Session, a question in that context to which I believe the House will wish to give consideration and on which it will wish to arrive at a decision, namely, whether it ought to be possible for Private...

Orders of the Day — Part I: Farming (Northern Ireland) (28 Oct 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: It is an occasion resonant with historical echoes when hon. Members from Northern Ireland come to tell the Government and the House about the potatoes that have rotted in the clamps. Now in 1985, unlike 1845, we have no difficulties in persuading Ministers of reality and the seriousness of what we are telling them. It is not usual for Adjournment debates to be attended by the Minister of...

Nuclear Power (Inquiries): Urban Disturbances (23 Oct 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: We are on narrow ground in this debate—narrow in respect of time and narrow in respect of the subject marked out by the motion. Those outside may have been surprised that the usual channels managed to limit to so short a space a subject which bulks so large in the minds of the people of this country. We are invited to demand an independent judicial inquiry. I do not believe that that is...

Bills Presented: Immigration (23 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: The hon. and learned Member has been misinformed. The recruitment was carried out by the regional boards and the hospital authorities. At no stage was I in any way involved in decisions governing recruitment.

Bills Presented: Immigration (23 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: From time to time this House lays on what might be called a surrogate debate. This happens when there are huge and tormenting problems which, for various reasons of embarrassment or prior commitment, we prefer not to have debated openly on the floor of the House. We therefore argue about minor matters on the fringe of those great problems. This debate is a case in point. Its only peculiarity...

Bills Presented: Immigration (23 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman because by his intervention he exposes the peculiarity of our adherence to the European convention. Of course, when a treaty is entered into by Her Majesty's Government which involves any change in the laws of this country in order to be implemented, before that treaty can be ratified the Government must secure from Parliament the necessary change in the law...

Bills Presented: Immigration (23 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am obliged to the hon. Lady because she helps me to make my point. It is when marriage is endowed with the ability to confer status that we run into these difficulties. It was the status she possessed of having right to abode, that would be conferred by a women exercising her choice to marry whom she would from abroad, which led us to erect these barriers—or, rather, these sieves—to...

Bills Presented: Immigration (23 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Does the right hon. Gentleman consider that that is a decision which should be the result of a debate and, if necessary, a vote in this House?

New Clause 2: Restrictions on Conflicts of Interest in Conveyancing (17 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I have my name on the new clause anyway.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Tax Evasion: Conduct Involving Dishonesty (10 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: It is obvious that the Minister will look again at this wording, but I hope that he will not wait until there is a case that obliges him or his successor to do so. I put a purely linguistic and not a legal point to him in that context. I suggest that the word "involves" was chosen in the original drafting because it fits with the words "an element". "Involves an element of was a whole phrase...

Birmingham City Council Bill (By Order): Nephrops Fishing Industry (Portavogie) ( 4 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend and neighbour the Member for Strangford (Mr. Taylor) for cutting me in on his Adjournment debate in circumstances which render the limitations rather less restrictive than normal. I note that the Minister of State will reply to the debate, so that we are speaking at three removes from our actual target. He is representing the noble Lord who is...

Northern Ireland ( 4 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman realise that he is describing the parliamentary democracy of the United Kingdom?

Northern Ireland ( 4 Jul 1985)

Mr Enoch Powell: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman follow the analogy a little further and consider what would be the position if County Durham were treated as separate and self-governing in the same way as we view Northern Ireland? We would almost have a fixed majority and a fixed minority. A conclusion can be drawn from this.
