Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Fishing industry (12 Jul 1979)

Mr Peter Walker: I recognise the real problem that has existed for the long-distance fishing fleet for some time. One of the reasons why we are anxious to reach a sensible and acceptable agreement is that this could open third areas, with the Common Market, to the benefit of our fishermen. It is important to get a basic agreement that makes sense for our fishing industry.

John Bercow: .... Unless there is a note that lists that, I do not have any intelligence on the matter. I am advised that the Foreign Secretary intends to wind up the debate for the Government. It is open to him, fleet of foot and intellectually dextrous as he is, to leap to his feet and deliver his oration now in substitution for the opportunity later, but he is not under any obligation to do so....

Cabinet Documents (Disclosure) (28 Jun 1976)

Mr Peter Crowder: The hon. Member speaks as a journalist. I understand institutions of that sort refusing to give the name of the person who has given information. However, since he works in Fleet Street, as the Leader of the House used to do, could he give us some indication of the sort of sum of money he would pay for information like this which is undoubtedly leaked?

Written Answers — Defence: RFA Fort George (26 Apr 2011)

Peter Luff: RFA Fort George is one of only two Auxiliary oilers replenishment in service with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, and both ships are the same age. The decision to withdraw Fort George from service instead of her sister ship Fort Victoria took into account the material state of each ship, their respective maintenance requirements and the estimated savings that the retirement of each ship would deliver.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: EU Fisheries Negotiations (8 Jan 2013)

Peter Aldous: I, too, congratulate the Minister on his work in the negotiations before Christmas and over the past two and a half years on behalf of the under-10 metre fleet. There is concern that in future work on the reallocation of quota, the under-10s will be compromised by not having kept records. Will he confirm that he will work with the industry to address that concern?

In addition the Type 42 destroyer HMS Edinburgh and Type 23 Frigate HMS Argyll are both in post refit sea training and the Type 45 HMS Dauntless, which has recently joined the fleet, has not completed basic operational sea training. These ships are also therefore not available for operations.

East Coast Inshore Fishing Fleet (14 Oct 2010)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to debate the future of the east coast inshore fishing fleet. This matter is of great importance, both to the fishing fleet in Lowestoft, in my constituency, and to other ports along the east coast and elsewhere in Britain. Although there is much wrong with the way in which the industry is governed today, I shall say from...

Council of Agriculture Ministers (22 Jul 1982)

Mr Peter Walker: We are considering details that have been sent to us, but, as the hon. Gentleman knows better than most hon. Members, the fishing industry has diverse interests. A substantial section of the fleet has had much higher catches and prices during the past six months. Other sections of the industry are now in difficulty. We are considering carefully the detailed picture that is being presented to us.

The Royal Navy (28 Nov 1983)

Peter Viggers: I do not know whether my hon. Friend intends to deal with merchant shipping and the widely felt concern that that fleet should be considered part of our surface defences in times of emergency. Is he aware that we can offer patronage to civilian ships by offering them work in runs to the Falklands? Are all of those contracts being offered to British ships? If not, why not?

Orders of the Day — Newspaper Industry (26 Mar 1985)

Peter Bottomley: ...has given employers the means to redress the balance of power. The provisions of the Employment Act 1982 on closed shop balloting came into force in November 1984.

Examples have been brought to my attention of disciplinary action against members who have declined to come out on secondary...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Jul 2013)

Peter Lloyd: At the moment, with the proposals that stand with HS2 Ltd, there will be two types of rolling stock: one is the captive fleet for operation purely on new high-speed lines, and the other is a new fleet of classic-compatible trains that operate with the existing UK gauge. For the period in which they operate, we do not necessarily see a requirement for new stations, because they...

Agriculture and Fisheries (Ministerial Meetings) (30 Jun 1982)

Mr Peter Walker: exchange for an agreement. I ask the hon. Gentleman to withdraw his allegation because it is totally without foundation. He knows more than anybody that the decline in the long-distance fleet took place primarily during the Labour Government's period in office.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Polaris Submarines (23 Jan 1963)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: It is certainly within the capacity of British shipyards to put the Polaris fleet into service and I hope at a reasonably early date. As to the missile gap, I do not accept that there is a gap, although no doubt there will be a period when enemy defence is growing in strength and we shall be doing something about that. I think it will be dealt with in the debate.
