Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Anti-ship Guided Weapons (21 Oct 1971)

Sir Peter Kirk: That was precisely why we decided to run on "Ark Royal". We have integral air available for the support of the Fleet for the foreseeable future and intend to develop it in that way.

Employers' Liability (Compulsory Insurance) (20 Oct 1971)

Mr Peter Archer: ...number of accidents. In my experience, this does not happen. Usually, employers of any substance have insured so much of their business of different kinds with one insurance company—their vehicle fleet, their works cars, their works pension scheme, and so on—that no insurer is likely to twist their tails by putting up their premiums in this sector of insurance. The fact that we have...

Royal Dockyards (27 Jul 1971)

Sir Peter Kirk: ...We have gone some way over the last few years to strengthen the authority of the general manager and to give him a clear chain of command through the chief executive and ultimately to the Chief of Fleet Support, who is the responsible Board member. I think that every general manager now knows precisely where he stands in the hierarchy, and the line of responsibility is clear and direct....

Greater London Council (Money) Bill (1 Jul 1971)

Mr Nigel Spearing: .... Gentleman's remarks. He mentioned Third Reading debates on Private Business, and it may well be that the Committee on Procedure will look at this matter. I wish to raise two major issues, one the Fleet line and the other the barrier, which has been mentioned by the hon. Gentleman and which is a matter for the Government as much as for London. I am using this debate in the time-honoured...

Orders of the Day — Royal Navy (4 May 1971)

Sir Peter Kirk: the decision to retain a number of ships east of Suez which will still be earmarked for N.A.T.O. They will, of course, be under the operational command of the Commander-in-Chief, Western Fleet who has now assumed—earlier this month—responsibility for the Far East Fleet command in anticipation of the end of the rundown in the area. The decision to retain "Ark Royal" will add...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Admiralty Ferry Crew Association (11 Feb 1971)

Sir Peter Kirk: That is one of the factors we are bearing in mind in the review. We are anxious to use these volunteers in the most effective means for the support of the Fleet.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Dockyard Policy Board (14 Jan 1971)

Sir Peter Kirk: The hon. Gentleman from his experience in my office, will know how difficult this problem is. The dockyards are so closely bound up with the Fleet that it is almost impossible to conceive a way of hiving them off. However, we have been looking into this matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Surface-to-Surface Missiles (26 Nov 1970)

Sir Peter Kirk: We have always planned to meet the longer-range threat by other means, such as nuclear fleet submarines and aircraft deployed from ships. We believe that this will be a more satisfactory way of dealing with the long-range threat.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Flag Officers (Sea-going Appointments) (26 Nov 1970)

Mr Peter Hardy: May I ask the hon. Gentleman to take great care that the remaining 4,300 officers of Flag Rank in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines are not sent to sea, in case the very buoyancy of the Fleet is considerably reduced?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Naval Dockyards (29 Oct 1970)

Sir Peter Kirk: ...considering the whole question of the operation of the Royal dockyards, but the hon. Gentleman will understand that the very nature of the dockyards and the need for a close association with the Fleet makes this a very difficult question indeed.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (6 Jul 1970)

Peter Tapsell: ...sphere. I hope that my right hon. Friend will conclude that we would be wise to follow that policy still, if indeed we intend to supply arms at all. When I think of the huge Russian submarine fleet, to which my right hon. Friend referred in his speech, I do not know what significant contribution South Africa could make to the security of the Cape route and its vast approaches. At best,...

Fishing (Hunter Report) (19 Dec 1969)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...last public statement of the British Government came in the debate on 12th December. It really arose from an aside following the intervention of my hon. Friend the Member for The High Peak (Mr. Peter M. Jackson). On that occasion, my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary at the Home Office said: The Government are well aware of the damage that could be caused if high seas fishing for...

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...

Middle East (Soviet Naval Activity) (31 May 1968)

Mr Alan L. Williams: ...) on raising this subject, but I hope that he will forgive me if I do not go into the detail that he did about the Arab-Israeli dispute, but, rather, address myself to the presence of the Russian fleet in the Mediterranean, because I believe that this has important strategic implications for this country. This is not the first time that the Russians have taken an interest in the...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 61 (28 May 1968)

Mr Richard Marsh: ...earlier in my speech that there will be varying qualifications for various people. It would be absurd to put on a farmer with two vehicles the same responsibilities as are being placed on a large fleet owner. That is the kind of arrangement we want to secure, with different qualifications for persons with differing experience. There is no reason at all why the functions cannot be split....

Clause 2: General Powers of Freight Corporation (27 May 1968)

Mr Peter Bessell: ...would prove a very expensive business indeed. I gather, however, from the right hon. Gentleman's remarks that it is not intended that the Corporation should, under existing conditions, purchase a fleet of hovercraft and commence operating them for freight transportation within the foreseeable future. He believes that the Corporation should have this reserve power so that if an economic...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (24 Jan 1968)

Sir Peter Kirk: the soft area of Europe, the Mediterranean? Again, I hoped to hear more from the Foreign Secretary about what our plans are for the Mediterranean area. Are we to put back troops in Malta and a fleet in the Mediterranean, and are we to react to the presence of the Soviet fleet in the Mediterranean, or will we leave it to the Americans, as we have in other areas? That is what I wanted...

Transport Holding Company Bill (16 Jan 1968)

Mr Peter Walker: ...because of their number, wide range of size and the largely urban nature of their territories. There then follows a table that shows the average working expenses per car mile. It shows that with a fleet of up to 30 buses the expenses are 37d., and for a fleet of between 31 and 60 buses the figure is 39·4d. So the table continues to rise until for 1,000 buses we have a figure of over 46d....

Transport Bell (20 Dec 1967)

Mr David Webster: .... I shall probably be accused of being disloyal by pointing out the defects of the Government in trying to put the country right. The point which my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker) made about the chairmanship of British Railways being hawked around, it is rumoured, seven people, the Parliamentary Secretary's visit to Canada to ask a prominent railwayman there to...
