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.

British Railways (Investment) (12 Jun 1979)

Mr Peter Snape: ...a good debate on the railway system and that all it needs is a little more cash, which might go against some of the hon. Gentleman's basic philosophies. Turning to the locomotives, of the present fleet of about 2,000 the vast majority will be life-expired by the end of the 1980s. The present building rate of new locomotives is 20 a year, and at the present rate only 290 new freight...

Indication of Prices (Beds) Order: FlNANCE (3 Apr 1979)

Mr Peter Rees: ...to cash limits. I have no doubt that the Chief Secretary will wish to revert to that point when he replies. Finally, my hon. Friend touched on the question of the amnesty which has been given to Fleet Street casual workers. We Conservatives certainly have no objection to a sensible, perhaps a generous, use of the Inland Revenue's powers to negotiate settlements in individual cases. This...

Middle East (9 Mar 1979)

Peter Tapsell: ...he rightly attaches to the maintenance of peace and stability in this area. So do the recent firm statements by his Defence and Energy Secretaries, and also the press reports that the United States fleet, military aircraft and missile units have been moved into appropriate positions. These are all most welcome signs that the political severity of the challenges that may now face the free...

" the Times"newspaper (30 Nov 1978)

Mr Peter Brooke: ...Times Newspapers, although the services that I have rendered to that organisation have been wholly irrelevant to the subject that we are now debating. I speak as the Member in whose constituency Fleet Street falls, though Times Newspapers is a refugee from my constituency and has moved into the constituency of my parliamentary neighbour, the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras, South...

Orders of the Day — Supply: The Royal Navy (19 Jun 1978)

Mr Geoffrey Pattie: ...the standby squadron, which consists at present of only four frigates. In time of emergency these extra ships would be manned by the shore-based naval personnel engaged in training, plus the Royal Fleet Reserve personnel. I know that my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Winchester and I may have a difference of emphasis on this matter, because he made various comments about certain...

Foreign Affairs (7 Jun 1978)

Mr Peter Blaker: ...rather than censure. The hon. Member for Sheffield, Hillsborough (Mr. Flannery) referred to gunboat diplomacy. Surely the greatest expert on gunboat displomacy, with the extension of the Soviet fleet to its present enormous size, is Admiral Gorshkov, who spells out his version of gunboat diplomacy in his book. That, then, is the situation we face, and we need a robust Government. The...

Orders of the Day — SOLOMON ISLANDS BILL [Lords]: Effect of Independence on British Nationality (23 May 1978)

Mr Chris Price: ...Office to make them independent was greater than the desire to exclude future problems. I congratulate all the Ministers in the Solomon Islands Government who came here, particularly their leader, Peter Kenilorea. I wish the new independent country well. This is the first of the last group of countries of which we are finally to divest ourselves. Most of them are in the Pacific. The...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Public Accountability of British Rail (17 May 1978)

Mr Tom Bradley: ...not be imagined that the success of British Rail could be measured by the number of staff that it is disgorging from its system. We should have a more sophisticated approach to the difficulties. Peter Parker is the most inspiring, best-informed leader that the industry has had within my lifetime. His report for this year is informative, forward-looking and encouraging. I detected a note of...

Orders of the Day — Trustee Savings Banks Bill (15 Mar 1978)

Peter Tapsell: .... The trustee savings banks may think that they can move into that market, but it is one of considerable political controversy at all times. One has only to read the article written by Mr. Kenneth Fleet, in the business issue of The Sunday Times last Sunday, or the leading article in the Financial Times on Monday this week to see that the whole position of the building societies is at...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Nato (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Fred Mulley: ...any weakening in the Alliance or that the Alliance has been weakened. That is contrary, for example, to the view of the retiring Chairman of the Military Committee, the distinguished Admiral of the Fleet Sir Peter Hill-Norton. I do not accept that NATO has been weakened or that this country has been responsible for such a weakening. The defence cuts have been decided and debated, and it...

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Peter Viggers: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am concerned and uncertain about the position. Fortunately, we have no mutiny in the Fleet or riot in the Army, and nor are we likely to have such occurrences, but discipline in the Forces includes an obligation not to question the terms of pay and conditions. Service men are not able to hold a conference at Tynemouth or anywhere else to consider...

New Writ: Journalism (Closed Shop) (17 Jun 1977)

Mr Peter Fry: ...be resisted, there will be a strong threat to the freedom and the variety of the voices that we hear, particularly in our provincial Press. Once that has been achieved, presumably the next step is Fleet Street. I hope that the Minister will have the courage to denounce what he ought to see as victimisation of individuals. We have been assured on various occasions that the Government's...

Orders of the Day — The Royal Navy (19 May 1977)

Mr Antony Buck: ...situation. He was right, but I am sure he would acknowledge that that is not in any way the fault of the Navy. I now want to pay tribute to the work that was done for the British Navy by Sir Peter Kirk. It is right that I should do this because I took over from him as Navy Minister. Many of us were at his memorial service today. He was devoted to the cause of Europe. He enjoyed immensely...

Orders of the Day — Hospital Services (Medway Towns) (18 May 1977)

Peter Viggers: ...or sensible for Britain to stick its head in the sand—if that is an appropriate expression to use on shipping matters—and to impose its own regulations which result in the British merchant fleet being the best equipped and safest fleet to serve in if we then price ourselves completely out of the market. I can give an example of that. In the case of North Sea supply vessels—the case...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: White Paper (22 Mar 1977)

Mr Peter Blaker: Is the Secretary of State aware that Admiral of the Fleet Sir Peter Hill-Norton, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, recently said that it was extraordinary how some of our political leaders view the military buildup of the Warsaw Pact as being only for defensive purposes, and added that Warsaw Pact forces are not the right shape for that purpose. Does he agree with that view?

Defence (22 Mar 1977)

Mr Fred Mulley: ...there is no imminent risk of aggression by the Warsaw Pact. This assessment has been made also in recent weeks by Secretary Brown and by the Chairman of NATO's Military Committee, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Peter Hill-Norton. The policy of deterrence does not require that NATO matches the conventional strength of the Warsaw Pact, either globally or in particular areas. It does require that...

Foreign Affairs (1 Mar 1977)

Peter Tapsell: ...'s greatest Power. The Commonwealth provides a uniquely intimate forum for resolving some of the tensions between the richer and poorer nations. Our permanent seat on the Security Council, our fleet of nuclear submarines, the expert financial mechanisms of the City of London, the international prestige of our monarchy, our immensely skilled and professional Foreign Service, and, not...

Orders of the Day — Defence (20 Dec 1976)

Mr Peter Rees: ...to my right hon. Friend the Member for Sidcup (Mr. Heath) for reviving that old and honourable office few years ago. Although there is no one now living in Deal who can personally recall the fleet lying at anchor off the Downs, such memories are cherished by the residents of Deal. More important even that those factors, important though they are, for over 150 years now the Royal Marines...

Orders of the Day — Transport (London Commuters) (12 Nov 1976)

Mr Hugh Dykes: ..., but in some instances the delay was greater than 30 minutes. I was unable to get through to the Chairman of British Rail, but I spoke to one of his five or six assistants. I understand that Mr. Peter Park travels to work by Rolls-Royce. That is a pleasant way to travel, but most people to not have the chance. I suppose that even Socialist millionaires can be conscientious enough to...
