Prayers: Falkland Islands (22 Mar 1995)

Ann Clwyd: ...and constructive relations with the elected Government of Argentina. Provided democracy continues in that country, Labour in government will continue to talk to the Argentine Government to try to find a long-term solution to the Falkland Islands dispute. However, we emphasise that sovereignty is not an issue in current discussions with Argentina. The future of Britain's military presence...

Orders of the Day — Gas Bill: Licensing of Gas Suppliers and Gas Shippers (15 May 1995)

Mr Timothy Eggar: ...the transfer of customers. That is essentially a technical operation. That is why we are starting with an area of 500,000 customers in the south-west and moving up to one of 2 million. We want to find out whether additional problems exist as we expand and go nationwide. The purpose of the pilot scheme and then of the expanded pilot is to allow British Gas TransCo and competing gas...

Adjournment of the House (24 May 1995)

Dr Norman Godman: ...pointed to problems and Shell respected that.Many things were being done world-wide thanks to the fact that problems had been pointed out, but as industrial organisations they were paid to find solutions and compromise and evaluations were required. Mr. Rothermund is speaking with a forked tongue because the conduct of his company in the gulf of Mexico is entirely different from its...

Electoral Reform (13 Jun 1995)

Mr David Shaw: ...on a fundamental misconception about the financing of the Conservative party. The hon. Member for Newport, West failed to open up the mysteries of trade union and Labour party funding, but we can find many secret arrangements the Labour party puts together to get funds from as many different sources as possible. What we find is that the trade unions own and control the Labour party and...

Orders of the Day — Reserve Forces Bill: Offences Against Orders and Regulations Under Section 4 (20 May 1996)

John Reid: ...course of employment of a sponsored reservist. On the other hand, it would apply where a superior was, say, properly attempting to serve some notice connected with a reservist's duty on him. We find that paragraph useful in limiting the scope for ambiguity and problems further down the line. However, another paragraph in the Minister's letter seemed to extend the scope. Referring to the...

Fisheries (16 Dec 1996)

Eddie McGrady: ...—a 40 per cent. reduction of a 70 per cent. remnant of the fleet of Northern Ireland. That would be devastating. There comes a point when fishing effort at sea—which, of course, supports the onshore process involving factories and jobs—simply collapses. If there are not sufficient catches coming ashore, the whole industry, both at sea and ashore, will collapse like a pack of cards....

Political Fundraising (12 Feb 1997)

Mr David Shaw: ...is still heavily dependent on the trade unions: it is tied to them. It has changed the arrangements, and now has what it calls a constituency plan agreement, the wording of which I have managed to find out. Under such agreements, the constituency Labour party and the union undertake to recognise the value of the organisational links, between the Labour Party and its affiliated trade...

Germ Warfare Tests (West Country) (12 Nov 1997)

John Reid: ...In those trials, the Microbiological Research Establishment used a specially adapted experimental trials vessel, Icewhale, which was equipped to spray material from the rear of the vessel into the onshore wind. The exact course that the ship sailed, and the position of the land-based sampling sites on each trial, were determined by several factors, including weather conditions. The samples...

Fisheries (17 Dec 1997)

Alex Salmond: ...clarify that point. As has been pointed out, in the North sea, herring quotas are up by 60 per cent. and western mackerel quotas are up by 20 per cent. People who work in the pelagic sector will find it virtually impossible to understand the huge capacity reduction in their fleet if the quota assessment is moving in the opposite direction. I return to this important point. Considering...

Tax Avoidance (Offshore Trusts) (21 Jan 1998)

David Maclean: ...Ltd., but I must set out the chain of events if the House is to understand what has gone on. I have researched this in some detail, but I shall try to be as brief as possible. The House will find that the Paymaster General has attempted to put himself at arm's length from the Orion trust. The Paymaster General has so far failed to answer several questions about the Orion trust. It was set...

Clean-coal Technology (22 Jul 1998)

John Battle: .... Great work is going on there. There is also an earth balance project, which brings together a range of new technologies and spells out the fact that, by integrating such technologies, we can find a practical way forward that provides much-needed energy and warmth for local communities. We must concentrate on the tough environmental challenges we face. My hon. Friend referred to the...

Millennium Compliance (Quarterly Review) (2 Dec 1998)

Mr Nigel Jones: ...recall that the Science and Technology Committee produced a report on the issue about a year ago? We commented that the Government expected local government, the NHS and other public services to find the money to fix the millennium bug from existing budgets and were not giving additional funding. With time running out and some delays having been identified, will she talk to her friends in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Stamp Duty on Conveyance or Transfer on Sale (28 Apr 1999)

John Whittingdale: ...may seem a rather curious course, but it has advantages because they are then able to recover VAT on, for example, their input costs for construction. If a company pursues that course, it may well find that, in the event of a sale, it pays stamp duty not only on the sale value but on the VAT charge as well. In such cases, stamp duty is a straightforward tax on a tax. In the case of a...

Orders of the Day — Pollution Prevention and Control Bill (8 Jun 1999)

Bob Blizzard: ...plant is coming and they may be faced with the same problem in a year or two's time. A means must be found of managing the change, and I hope that my hon. Friend and my right hon. Friend can find a way to resolve the situation. If they cannot, people at the Lowestoft fish market, on which our economy is heavily dependent, will continue to be worried. That example illustrates the need to...

Thames Safety Inquiry (14 Feb 2000)

John Prescott: ...get what they want. I should have said before that the Home Office intends to produce in March a White Paper on licensing matters, which will deal with the differences between licensing laws onshore and on the water. Great courage was shown by many people on that evening, particularly by those on the other boat, the Hurlingham, in providing assistance in those difficult circumstances....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Double Taxation Relief (3 May 2000)

Oliver Letwin: ...rigour and one of the loci classici of exposition of the advantages of export of capital neutrality. The document goes through in awesome detail systems of exemption, systems of credit, systems of onshore pooling and systems of mixing. It comes to the view, in section 6.32 on page 29, that Mixer companies have been in use for a considerable number of years. Multinational groups have...

Utilities Bill (4 May 2000)

Lord Judd: ...for example, in endeavouring to fulfil the obligations spelt out in regard to the provision of energy from renewable resources, there was a rush for and an ill-considered increase in the number of onshore wind-power systems, that may well represent a totally unacceptable pressure on important landscapes, including the national parks. It is interesting to note that already it is envisaged...

New Clause 16: Taxation (Government Codes of Practice) (13 Jun 2000)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ...to respond to the hon. Member for West Dorset (Mr. Letwin) and I assure him that, as far as I am concerned, the night is but young. Before I reply to his comments and questions, let me say that I find it curious that he is raising a subject for which he has Front-Bench responsibility, although he is obliged to introduce this debate from the Back Benches. As it would not be proper for me to...

Utilities Bill (21 Jun 2000)

Lord Jenkin of Roding: ...'s own classification of new and renewable energy technologies. Those that are near term include biomass residues--which I mentioned in the debate on Second Reading--as well as landfill gas, onshore wind, hydro and what is known as passive solar. As regards the medium term, offshore wind and energy crops are added to the list. In the longer term we reach some of the proposals mentioned in...

Utilities Bill (11 Jul 2000)

Lord Jenkin of Roding: ...at which the industry can highlight its concerns. That is a welcome development and meets many of the points which I and others made in earlier debates in relation to the difference between the onshore regulation by GEMA and the offshore regulation by the DTI. My only other point is that I am sorry I was unable to be present for the Report stage debates. I was not able to be in London but...
