Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Vat: Higher Rate (15 May 1975)

Mr Peter Snape: ...being an unduly truculent character. But listening to some of the speeches by Tory Members, I never fail to be amazed by their general hypocrisy. They and many of their equally patriotic friends in Fleet Street are rampaging the country—some of them are rampaging Western Europe or even further afield—selling this country short and telling everyone how this wicked Socialist Government...

Royal Navy (9 Jul 1975)

Mr Peter Blaker: ...making vast increases in its naval strength we are cutting our naval strength. When the Soviet Union is establishing shore facilities in Conakry, Somalia and Aden and is extending its Indian Ocean fleet, we are giving up Gan, Mauritius and Simonstown. We are making no effort to extend NATO cooperation to the South Atlantic or the Indian Ocean. At a time when things in the Mediterranean are...

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

Mr Geoffrey Rippon: ...a warning which we must all heed, both inside and outside this House— Any further cuts, and the seriousness of our support for NATO would be brought into question. Only yesterday Admiral of the Fleet Sir Peter Hill-Norton gave a further warning against defence cuts. Speaking as chairman of NATO's military committee, he was in the somewhat invidious position of pointing out to our...

Newspaper Industry (Royal Commission's Report) (17 Mar 1976)

Mr Peter Shore: ...Press has been presented to the House and is published today. As the House will know, the Government asked the Royal Commission last September for a report in view of the urgent problems facing Fleet Street. In recent months, management and unions have been working together to reach a comprehensive agreement on modern manning levels and technology. The Report considers that the rapid...

Royal Navy (12 May 1976)

Mr Richard Luce: ...naval force of the Soviet Union are less than 10 years old—far younger than the NATO ships. We have only to look at Lloyd's Register to see that over the past 18 years the Soviet merchant fleet has grown from 26th in the world to sixth. Of the world's total of 900 trawlers of more than 2,000 tons, 643 are from the Soviet Union. Lloyd's Register shows that 122 of the 139 fishing factory...

Orders of the Day — London Transport Bill (15 Jun 1976)

Mr Ivor Stanbrook: .... Can we expect definitely to see the Piccadilly Line extended right into London Airport for air travellers to take full advantage of it in mid-1977, as has been promised? That brings me to the Fleet Line. A great many people in central London would like to know when we may expect to be clear of the works between Baker Street, Charing Cross and Strand stations. They have caused a great...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Dockland (Redevelopment Plan) (23 Jun 1976)

Mr Peter Shore: it as soon as it is before us. Dealing with the one matter of substance about which the hon. Gentleman asked me, which was the transport strategy in Dockland's development, especially the Fleet and River lines, obviously I cannot respond in advance of my general consideration of the whole Dockland strategy.

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?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Departmental Staff (13 Jul 1976)

Mr Peter Blaker: Will the right hon. Gentleman look into the circumstances surrounding Fleet Bank House, Salisbury Square, which has recently been occupied by his Department? Is he aware that, according to a parliamentary answer given by a Minister from the Department of the Environment and other information reaching me, the building remained unoccupied for more than a year after rent started to be paid,...

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...

Orders of the Day — Defence (20 Dec 1976)

Mr Peter Rees: 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

Mr Peter Fry: 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...

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...

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...
