Mr John Biggs-Davison: Despite the South African matter, is not the world drugs menace something to which the Commonwealth Heads of Government might turn their attention?

Gipsies (24 Jul 1986)

Mr John Biggs-Davison: I intend no attack upon true gipsies. In common with other hon. Members I have a great respect and regard for Romanies. I have long thought that if there was any abomination more vile than Hitler's final solution for Jewry, it was the Nazi extermination of gipsies. Alas, they have had few to speak for them or to demand restitution. The undesirable and resented itinerants now in Chigwell Row...

Baronet, the Member for Linlithgow, (Mr. Dalyell) who is not present, has complained that he has not been given time to pursue by debate his personal campaign against my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister. You will observe, Sir, that a Minister of the Crown and my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House are...

New Towns (18 Jul 1986)

Mr John Biggs-Davison: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. He has referred to my interest in new towns. It so happens that the constituency of Epping Forest abuts upon Harlow, the centre of a new town of great beauty.

South Africa (7 Jul 1986)

Mr John Biggs-Davison: Would not sanctions, as called for by the Opposition, have a catastrophic effect upon some of those other countries that my right hon. and learned Friend is about to visit, with our goodwill?

It is not important to encourage as...
