Social Policy Protocol (Confidence Motion) (23 Jul 1993)

Social Policy Protocol (Confidence Motion) (23 Jul 1993)

George Galloway: As the deal was only done in the later hours of last night, I am—

Social Policy Protocol (Confidence Motion) (23 Jul 1993)

George Galloway: I do not believe that; that is the burden of my remarks. Nobody else believes it either. As the deal was done only late last night, and as the Prime Minister made his remarks this morning, time will tell just what deal has been done. In the final stages of last night's debate, the Secretary of State for Employment said, with his usual flourish, that his party was the Conservative and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Nov 1993)

George Galloway: Will the Prime Minister find time today to call for the court reports referred to in early-day motion 2534, standing in my name and that of other hon. Members, on the torture of a British citizen, Sulaiman A1-Adsani, by Sheikh Jabar A1-Sabah, a member of the Kuwaiti royal house? That matter is now to go before the courts in Kuwait. The torture, which consisted of the burning of 25 per cent....

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Health Care (Glasgow) (8 Dec 1993)

George Galloway: When the Secretary of State meets the new man, when will he be able to give him any assurance that he will not fall victim to the same Watergate-style skulduggery described by the Secretary of State's distinguished predecessor, Lord Younger, as being the fate of Mr. Bill Fyfe—the departing chairman of Greater Glasgow health board? How much longer can the Secretary of State pretend that he...

Estimates Day: Peacekeeping Operations (13 Dec 1993)

George Galloway: I am not sure on what basis the right hon. Member for Guildford (Mr. Howell) opened the debate, but it is appropriate in any case that I should apologise to him and to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for missing much of his opening speech. I was unavoidably detained. Although the Minister of State, the right hon. and learned Member for Grantham (Mr. Hogg), has temporarily left his place, I should...

Estimates Day: Peacekeeping Operations (13 Dec 1993)

George Galloway: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I know that the Minister has heard him, is writing down the question and is doubtless formulating an answer. The question on which I am seeking to press the Government remains: what is the money and has it been transferred for humanitarian purposes in Iraq or, to use the phrase in the London Gazette, has it been transferred to "support" United Nations...

Estimates Day: Peacekeeping Operations (13 Dec 1993)

George Galloway: It is perfectly possible for us, within the United Nations, to develop an agreement with Iraq whereby assets could be transferred—as that block of £186,000 was unfrozen and transferred to New York on Friday—with specific agreements about the purpose for which that money should be spent. It is perfectly within our power, and I assure hon. Members that the Iraqi Government would grab such...

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with the Chairman of the Palestine National Authority; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestine National Authority (15 Dec 1993)

George Galloway: Will the Secretary of State accept my —and I believe the whole House's—congratulations on his and the Prime Minister's meetings yesterday and today with the Chairman of the Palestine National Authority and on at long last recognising the leadership of the Palestinian people? Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that if there is a failure, on 22 December, to implement the accord signed in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Training (23 Feb 1994)

George Galloway: Will the Secretary of State ask the chief executive of Scottish Enterprise, Mr. Crawford Beveridge, what he was doing last weekend at a Conservative party fund-raising dinner at an hotel in my constituency—the Focus on Scotland dinner which Sir Michael Hirst, the chairman of the Conservative party, tells Malcolm Rifkind is immensely important and raises around 30 per cent. of its income?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (2 Mar 1994)

George Galloway: Was not one of the swift reactions of the Israeli Government that their armed forces began to shoot down worshippers rushing from the mosque and, in the days that have elapsed since, including today in Hebron, have shot dead many people? Does not Israel bear complete responsibility under the Geneva convention for the safety and well-being of the people under its occupation? Did not Dr....

Points of Order (2 Mar 1994)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I know that you will not comment on the rudeness and the lack of parliamentary manners shown by the Minister of State, which is legendary among Members on both sides of the House. However, if you consult the record you will see that the answer that the Minister of State gave was a stricture that I should abstain from asking questions in the House. Will you...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Mar 1994)

George Galloway: Does the Prime Minister have a message for Nabil Shaath, the chief Palestinian negotiator, who is in Parliament this afternoon? In view of the fact that, since last Friday's massacre in Hebron, the Israeli army has shot down more people than were shot by the murderer in the mosque, will the Prime Minister support a protection force made up from the United Nations or at least the co-sponsors...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Parliament Building (23 Mar 1994)

George Galloway: Given the almost unbelievably contemptuous—even by the Secretary of State's standards —way in which an exercise where 1.25 million Scots put pen to paper, paper to envelope, envelope to pillar box and pillar box to the Strathclyde region to demonstrate their views on the privatisation of Scottish water—

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Parliament Building (23 Mar 1994)

George Galloway: Why cannot we have, not a so-called referendum, but a Government-organised referendum on the future of the Scottish Parliament building, the future of Scottish government and national self-determination for the Scottish people? Will the Government ever listen to Scottish voices?

Orders of the Day — Deregulation and Contracting Out Bill: Health and Safety (10 May 1994)

George Galloway: I shall add briefly to what my hon. Friend the Member for Pendle (Mr. Prentice) has said. I warn the Minister, who is jolly decent cove and a jolly intelligent one too, that, for the reasons that my hon. Friend has explained, he ought to know better than to oppose the new clause. I choose my words carefully, and do not mean to make a joke, when I say that the Minister is playing with fire...

Orders of the Day — Deregulation and Contracting Out Bill: Health and Safety (10 May 1994)
