Privileges (2 Nov 1994)

George Galloway: In that case, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I shall avoid conjecture. Many people misuse our notepaper. Indeed, one hon. Member used it to send out an offer of South African wine at knocked-down prices under apartheid. It was the Member for Pretoria, South or Luton, North (Mr. Carlisle); I forget which. The fact is that many people have done similar things. It is always wrong, but it is important to...

Privileges (2 Nov 1994)

George Galloway: Forgery is a criminal offence. I am not a lawyer, but I know that for something to be a crime there must be criminal intent. I do not believe that any hon. Member thinks that Peter Preston, as fallible and mistaken as he was, did what he did with criminal intent.

Privileges (2 Nov 1994)

George Galloway: It was forgery only if it was done with criminal intent.

Privileges (2 Nov 1994)

George Galloway: Forgery, by definition, is a crime. If Mr. Preston is guilty of forgery, he is guilty of a crime. However, he can be guilty of forgery only if his action was based on criminal intent. Many people sign documents when they apply for jobs as our researchers and they are not always open and above board, but we do not drag them before the Privileges Committee. Perhaps we should. [Interruption.]...

Privileges (2 Nov 1994)

George Galloway: I apologise to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for having been dragged into the gutter most often frequented by the hon. Member for Dover. The electorate will deliver its verdict on the hon. Gentleman very shortly. Peter Preston has been a fool; he may even have been a knave, but the public outside are more concerned about the activities and actions of Members of the House of Commons than they are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Homelessness (7 Dec 1994)

George Galloway: Last Friday evening, with about 200 others, I slept outside on the ground in St. Aloysius college in my constituency to raise funds for the Simon Community to help the homeless in Glasgow. I have been ill ever since. Has the Minister any idea how long a night sleeping outside on the ground really is, how cold it is, how damp it is and how miserable it is? What message does he have, from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Saudi Arabia (14 Dec 1994)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he last had discussions with his Saudi Arabian counterparts on the state of British-Saudi relations; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Saudi Arabia (14 Dec 1994)

George Galloway: The Foreign Secretary will have noted the threat to this country by the brother of King Fahed, which was reported in The Independent on Monday, and he will know of the second consecutive 20 per cent. cut in the national budget of Saudi Arabia as its economy heads deeper and deeper into slump, with the unrest that that inevitably generates. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that, as the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Bosnia (14 Dec 1994)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (14 Dec 1994)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. My point of order relates to Foreign Office questions. As a result of his legendary arrogance and unpleasantness, the Minister of State—the right hon. and learned Member for Grantham (Mr. Hogg)—had an uncomfortable time during Foreign Office questions, and I must ask you on a point of order to make the right hon. and learned Gentleman's time more...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Services (31 Jan 1995)

George Galloway: Is it a part of the proper purpose of the armed forces to send reserve Army officers, trainers and semi-detached military operatives to dictatorships such as the royal dictatorship of Bahrain so that they can observe people who are demonstrating for the democratic right to elect their own Government and to establish their own Parliament being gunned down or tortured?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Economy (22 Feb 1995)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will urgently meet the Scottish Trades Union Congress to discuss recent manufacturing job losses in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Economy (22 Feb 1995)

George Galloway: Will the Minister test on the STUC the absurd equation often canvassed by the Government in the House between the proliferation in Scotland of temporary, low-paid, short-term and often contract jobs assembling other people's manufactures or forklifting other people's goods around empty warehouses, and the jobs that have been lost designing aircraft, building ships, mining coal and making...

Business of the House (2 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: May I draw the attention of the Leader of the House to early-day motion 582? [That this House is gravely concerned at the unsolved murder, in a British military barracks in Germany, of Christina Menzies the 16 year old daughter of Staff Sergeant John Menzies and his wife Christine; is concerned at reports of poor police work by the Military Police investigating the murder and poor legal work...

Orders of the Day — The Commonwealth (16 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: I shall resist the temptation to join battle with the hon. and learned Member for Burton (Sir I. Lawrence) on the contribution made to the well-being of the 1.5 billion people of the Commonwealth—the vast majority of them extremely poor—by free-market capitalism, let alone by the Thatcher years. I add my congratulations to those already directed to the Leader of the House for organising...

Orders of the Day — The Commonwealth (16 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: I am grateful to the Minister for what he has said and I wish him and the trade delegation well when they leave next week. Before he concludes his remarks on Kashmir, can he explain how it is that under international law, according to United Nations resolutions, there must be a plebiscite so that the people of Jammu and Kashmir can decide for themselves whether they wish to remain in India,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Economy (22 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he will next meet the Scottish TUC to discuss the problems of the Scottish economy; and if he will make a statement. [13636]

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Economy (22 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: It is apparent from their answers so far that none of the three stooges opposite has any idea what is happening in the Scottish manufacturing sector. In washing their hands of the haemorrhage of high-skilled, high-tech and high-paid jobs from Rolls-Royce and the BBC, they fail to see that they are presiding over the creation of a skivvy economy, where workers warehouse and sell other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Courts Martial (28 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to review the system of courts martial within Her Majesty's armed forces; and if he will make a statement. [14628]

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Courts Martial (28 Mar 1995)

George Galloway: Is it not more urgent than that? A number of cases give cause for concern. My constituent Staff Sergeant John Menzies and his wife, who are in the Gallery today, are living evidence of that, as their daughter was murdered by a British soldier. The military police, who were soldiers with armbands, and the military prosecutor, who was a soldier in a wig, bungled the case and—for the interest...
