Orders of the Day — Dockyard Services (Devonport) Order (9 Feb 1987)

Gordon Brown: As it is three years since the privatisation proposal of Mr. Peter Levene was first divulged to the House, more than two years since the right hon. Member for Henley (Mr. Heseltine) first announced his intention to go ahead with privatisation, and more than a year since we started debating the Dockyard Services Bill in Committee, the least that the House had a right to expect was that the...

Common Fisheries Policy (21 Nov 2002)

Mr Peter Duncan: ...scheme was more than 100 per cent. oversubscribed in Scotland. A #25 million fund was available, but #50 million could have been paid out. There were 215 applications—a third of the fleet wanted to leave the industry. Those people have played their part. When I spoke to fishermen this week, they expressed frustration that no cognisance was being taken in the current review of what they...

Milk Marketing Scheme (8 Dec 1969)

Mr Peter Mills: ...seeks permission to increase the levy to ½d. per gallon. Not only are new factories required to deal with the surplus milk, but the board faces the important task of modernising its transport fleet. The Government have rightly laid down that lorries should be of a certain standard—plated lorries —which means that the board must modernise its fleet and bring it up to the requisite...

Land Commission (25 Mar 1969)

Mr Peter Walker: ...the other hand, this was purely a leak for publicity purposes to take pressure off the Government, the Government should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. If it is a story which was started in Fleet Street with no foundation at all, whoever started the story in Fleet Street should be ashamed of himself. The Minister nods and confirms that this was a story founded on speculation in Fleet...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries (17 May 2017)

Kate Forbes: ...west—and I unequivocally assure the Conservatives that they signed up for, and have presided over, a common fisheries policy that has been damaging to our fishermen and our coastal communities. Peter Chapman said that history is irrelevant, but it is totally relevant when it highlights the hypocrisy and the empty rhetoric of Mr Chapman’s party. It was a Conservative leader who signed...

D-day: 75th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (4 Jun 2019)

Viscount Bridgeman: ...: the intensive training given to all formations that were likely to be involved in the Normandy landings. I am most grateful to the Minister for highlighting this point. I pay tribute to Mr Peter Caddick-Adams, a summary of whose findings appear in this month’s BBC History magazine. Broadly, the main areas where this training took place were, for the British forces, that surrounding...

Scottish Parliament: Introduction: Subordinate Legislation — Fishing Vessels (Decommissioning) (Scotland) Scheme 2003 — Sea Fishing (Transitional Support) (Scotland) (No 2) Scheme 2003 (5 Mar 2003)

Stewart Stevenson: ...that today with a glad heart. Oh, no, we will not. We should agree with our European Committee's position as described in its convener's report of a meeting with the Secretary of State for Wales, Peter Hain. On the proposed constitutional treaty, the report states: "It was noted that Article 11(1) of the Treaty proposed that the management of marine biological resources under the CFP...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Defence Spending (12 Mar 2015)

Philip Dunne: ...to the issue of the 2% in a moment. We are not falling below it and we do not intend to do so in the period of the spending review. We have also presided over the modernisation of our air mobility fleet, which is now the envy of the world. Many of our NATO allies rely on our capability during operations. The Voyager air-to-air refuelling capability is being used today across Iraq by a...

Privilege (9 Sep 2010)

John Whittingdale: ...Hughes) was named in the indictment of Mr Mulcaire as one of those who had suffered from hacking. When it came to Motorman, there were literally thousands of names. We know, for instance, that Peter Kilfoyle was one of them, although he did not know that until it was subsequently uncovered. In both cases there was concern that the victims were not informed, either by the police in relation...

Herald of Free Enterprise (24 Jul 1987)

Mr Peter Snape: .... The two men worked to arrangements that had been condoned or approved by management. Those same arrangements were probably adhered to by most other principal officers in the Townsend Thoresen fleet. Neither the captain, nor the chief officer, nor any other member of the crew was under the influence of alcohol. At no time did they disobey company instructions. The pleas of Captain Lewry...

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (12 Apr 2021)

Peter Kyle: ...I have been a Member of this House, my father called me this weekend and said, “Peter, I expect to see you in the House on Monday speaking.” My dad served in the Royal Navy in the 1960s, in the Fleet Air Arm as a mechanic, and his words mean a great deal, because he respected hugely the figure of Prince Philip. As a member of the armed forces parliamentary scheme, I speak to many...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (10 Dec 1975)

Mr Peter Blaker: ...of defence. "I must report to you that most politicians in Britain—and the same is true on the Continent of Western Europe—fail to understand that our whole strategy, the build-up of our naval fleet, the acquisition of bases in Africa and Asia, the boosting of our troop levels in Central Europe, are aimed at Western Europe. Western Europe is the target because, when we have control of...

Estimates 1993–94: Privacy and Media Intrusion (10 Jun 1993)

Ann Clwyd: ...accept all the report's conclusions, there is much that I can endorse. I am also impressed by the rave notices that the Select Committee received: almost universal condemnation from the editors of Fleet street. A representative sample must be that from Peter Preston, editor of The Guardian, who said that the report is like wearing 15 overcoats in case it rains…It just seems...

Defence Reform Bill (16 Jul 2013)

Peter Luff: ...another country that brings much greater long-term benefits to the UK. The classic example of that was the acquisition of the military afloat reach and sustainability—MARS—tankers for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary in South Korea, which led to a family of tankers being developed in consultation with BMT, the excellent British design house, and a range of equipment being fitted on to those...

Orders of the Day — 9TH Allotted Day: Railway Workshops (22 Mar 1983)

Mr Derek Foster: ...recession? That, of course, is a material factor. We acknowledge that there is a more efficient way of using wagon works. We have never denied that. What has been the growth of the private sector fleet? When I raised this question before, there was some confusion. The Secretary of State admitted that he was getting confusing reports from British Rail and British Rail Engineering. It seems...

Exiting the European Union (11 Mar 2019)

Peter Grant: ...still have the same rotten deal taking Scotland out of the European Union against the express wish of 62% of our sovereign national citizens; we still have the same sell-out of Scotland’s fishing fleet—exactly the kind of sell-out that the Secretary of State for Scotland promised to resign over and still has not; and no doubt in tomorrow’s debate and possibly later in the week, we...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fisheries objectives (11 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...in an office overlooking the trawl dock—but no fish are landed in Lowestoft. The trawlers in the Lowestoft PO land fish predominantly in the Netherlands. We are left with a small inshore fleet that lives a hand-to-mouth existence, unsure what quota of fish it will be able to catch from month to month. We might say it lives off the scraps from a rich man’s table. With that in mind, the...

Prayers: Nuclear Defence (22 Nov 1991)

Mr Cecil Franks: ...or that of any other Conservative Member, but in the name of the hon. Member for Glasgow, Govan (Mr. Sillars) and other members of the Scottish National party. Dated 31 October and entitled: Mr. Peter Mandelson, Labour and the Fourth Trident Submarine", the motion states That this House, noting that the Labour leadership has, since its somersault on nuclear weapons, insisted that a Labour...

Orders of the Day — Defence Estimates 1981 (20 May 1981)

Mr Peter Snape: ...had a headline: Thatcher faces revolt over defence cuts. The Sunday Express headline was: Tory MPs in revolt over more Navy cuts. On Monday the Daily Express headline was "Don't sink the Navy". Was Fleet Street attacked by some sort of collective madness so that it invented all those things?—[HON. MEMBERS: "Yes."] I cannot believe that the reporters on those good Tory newspapers have...

Orders of the Day — Urban Development Corporations (Financial Limits) Bill (4 Nov 1987)

Mr Peter Shore: .... That can be broken down into many headings, but I choose two. One is jobs. Most of the jobs have been imported—people have come with their jobs when firms have moved there. The greater part of Fleet street moved to docklands; people came with their jobs. One would hope that when replacement jobs arise there will be greater opportunities for the people who live in the area. The great...
