Prayers: Export Trade (22 Jun 1990)

Mr Ian Gow: I do not recall those words, but I remember the meeting of those two relatively old men, who were the heads of the Governments of France and Germany. When de Gaulle became president in May 1958 he was 68 and Adenauer was almost the same age. They both lived through the first and second world wars and it was left to those two statesmen to ensure that an essential element for peace in Europe...

Orders of the Day — ALLIED FORCES BILL [Lords].: Clause 1. — (Law applicable to allied and associated forces.) (21 Aug 1940)

Miss Rathbone: I want to address my questions, if I may, to the Attorney-General. I want to make sure what the exact legal position will be under the Bill. Is it that if an International Brigader or a Spaniard has come to this country and is not willing to be repatriated or to join General de Gaulle's forces, and is now in prison, he does not come under this Bill, and cannot be claimed by...

Oral Answers to Questions — President Kennedy (Talks) (22 Jan 1963)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Does not the right hon. Gentleman realise that his agreement with President Kennedy has offended President de Gaulle and that now President de Gaulle has offended the right hon. Gentleman? Is he aware that the British public is also becoming very offended about what is happening? Is not it about time the Government stood on their own feet without regard to what is said by President Kennedy...

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (21 Nov 1967)

Mr Harold Wilson: It is not for me to answer in this House what General de Gaulle or the French Government think, but from what General de Gaulle has said to me and also publicly, what still worries him is that we have still not got out of the Nassau mess which caused a sudden break on the last occasion. Despite what hon. Gentlemen opposite said in the last General Election, this was, as my right hon. Friend...

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (10 May 1966)

Mr Harold Wilson: There is no question that President de Gaulle, in the course of a very long discussion, was briefly told about the Skybolt difficulties, and, as I have said already, he was told that, if we could not get Skybolt, we should have to ask for something else. He did not say Polaris; he listed a number of things. What he did not tell President de Gaulle—and what President de Gaulle must have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: UK/French Expeditionary Forces (Interoperability) (14 Jan 2013)

Andrew Robathan: Switching variant does not make any difference to whether or not the aircraft could land on the Charles de Gaulle. We are co-operating with the Charles de Gaulle and we do not see the two aircraft carriers as being interoperable; we see them as separate but linked assets, and we certainly support the French. Indeed, during Exercise Corsican Lion, the Secretary of State, the Under-Secretary of...

Central Africa ( 1 Dec 1965)

Mr Anthony Fell: —who has the guts to say what he believes is General de Gaulle in France. [Laughter.] It may be that hon. Members opposite are so tight-minded and so narrow-minded that it is impossible for them to recognise the enormous job which General de Gaulle has done for France in a very few years because of his faith in France and himself. I do not say that General de Gaulle is good for Britain, but...

General De Gaulle (Withheld Broadcast) (25 Nov 1942)

Oral Answers to Questions — Chancellor Adenauer ( 7 Jul 1959)

Mr Harold Macmillan: Two separate kinds of question are contemplated. I will make a statement about the possible visit by President de Gaulle as soon as precedent and formality allow me to do so. President de Gaulle is a Head of State. This is a question of the visit of the Chancellor, which is on quite a different basis.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Common Market ( 1 Aug 1961)

Mr Konni Zilliacus: In view of the fact that President de Gaulle has already taken a stand on this matter which is exactly in line with the Labour Party's policy before the election as outlined by my right hon.

Mr Neil Marten: Bearing in mind that when the Prime Minister saw General de Gaulle it was obvious to all, except perhaps the Secretary of State for Defence, that the French were going to cancel the AFVG, is it not almost treating the aircraft industry with complete indifference not to have discussed this fully and frankly with General de Gaulle?
