Turkey and the EU (15 Dec 2004)

Lord Biffen: ...are today holding up the mirror against Turkey. We should also hold the mirror up against the existing European Union and its practices and, in my view, the great need for it to become more like a Gaullist Europe des patries. Ultimately, it will not be resolved in these short debates. It will be taken to the British public through a referendum, and upon their good sense and instinctive...

Defence: Second Day's Debate (28 Oct 1987)

Mr Denis Healey: ...for Woolwich (Mr. Cartwright), and I use the term "noble" not in the class sense but as an expression of personal esteem — who is about the only chap who will move at a rate of knots towards the Gaullist position on nuclear weapons. As I was saying before I was so pleasantly interrupted, we have become wholly dependent on the vagaries of American policy. Of course, sometimes it has...

Orders of the Day — United Kingdom and European Communities (23 Jul 1971)

Mr James Johnson: ...me in some indefinable way when I am told that my people should pay taxes to keep the "inefficient French peasants" in business. For good measure I am sometimes told that these are "conservative Gaullist" peasants, which gives me another niggle. For years I have campaigned for overseas aid to African and other developing nations. I have listened also to Dr. Mansholt speaking at...

Orders of the Day — European Economic Community (Treaty of Accession) (20 Jan 1972)

Mr James Johnson: ...the permanent limit of twelve miles? That is what we ask him to do. If he will stand up and say that, he will become what many people would like him to be, if I may use this upside down metaphor, a Gaullist in our camp who will fight for his country's interests as much as de Gaulle has done in the past inside the Six for his people.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Finance) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" ( 1 Jul 1985)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: .... He explained that he and the Foreign Office were in favour of a substantial extension of majority voting in the Community. Was that just a fraud? Was it just something that he thought up as a Gaullist bit of hypocrisy in order to con the rest of the EEC? That is not the spirit of the modern Foreign Office. It does not talk in terms of the British national interest or of trying to put...

Intergovernmental Conference (21 Mar 1996)

Mr Timothy Renton: ...at the invitation of some members of Mr. Chirac's party, the RPR, or Rassemblement pour la République. We had a day of discussion. During that day, we were told by all but one of those members—Gaullists—that they wanted to see the monnaie unique, the single currency, come about. They wanted closer integration of defence forces, and talked about moves towards a common foreign policy....

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Foreign Affairs (30 Oct 1969)

Viscount Lambton: ...always been activated in foreign policy by self-interest, and I can see no reason why she should suddenly decide not to be in the future. Some people say that the veto in 1963 was merely a piece of Gaullist prejudice when it was in fact a safeguarding of French interests. If we look at the situation in France today we must recognise that in her own self-interest France is likely to speak...

Nationalisation (19 May 1976)

Mr Brian Sedgemore: ...). If in any major debating chamber in Europe he made that speech he would be laughed out of court. He talks about the evils of public ownership in the financial sector, but when we look at Gaullist Right-wing France we see that the major banks were nationalised in 1945. They have a much closer relationship with industry, and 85 per cent. of all banking deposits in France arc deposited in...

Europe (17 Nov 1966)

Mr John Hynd: ...this country as a member of the Community, enlarged by the Scandinavian countries and probably others, would inevitably be involved for the defence of the Community area. Whether one accepts the de Gaullist conception of a single European defence community, with its own atomic weapons, or a European Community as one leg in a common defence policy with the United States as the other leg, or...

French Words (Prohibition) ( 5 Jul 1994)

Anthony Steen: ...taken too seriously, to highlight the bizarre situation which has resulted in the French language prohibition Bill or le loi relatif a l'emploi de la langue Francaise tabled by Jacques Toubon, the Gaullist Culture Minister, which passed all its stages in the French National Assembly and the Senate last Friday. That Bill banned the use of English words or expressions such as software,...

Orders of the Day — INDEPENDENT BROADCASTING AUTHORITY (No. 2) BILL ( 4 Jul 1974)

Mr Wyn Roberts: ...and some members of his Cabinet wanted to break up their troublesome State monopoly and create a commercial channel to provide competition. But they were opposed by an unholy alliance among the Gaullist UDR Party, the Socialists, the Communists and the trade unions. Therefore, all that the President has been able to do is to create seven independent regional services in competition with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (24 Nov 1964)

Mr William Hamling: ...the nation into a crisis. We know this afternoon who has been talking the nation into a crisis during the last week—those Members on the benches opposite. I suggest that it is some of the "de Gaullist deputies" opposite who paint a black picture of the country abroad. This afternoon concern has been expressed for E.F.T.A. This is new. Was any concern for E.F.T.A. shown in 1962 and 1963,...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Short Title and Interpretation ( 8 Mar 1972)

Mr John Mendelson: ...the Executive." I invite the Lord Advocate and all those others with a great deal of knowledge of these matters to go to Paris now and see the power of the French Parliament. It has been consistent Gaullist policy for many years to destroy this power, and it has succeeded. It is no matter to a Gaullist Minister or a Gaullist member of the National Assembly to accept the kind of subsection...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (13 Jul 1972)

Mr John Mendelson: ...to the present political situation. That is changing all the time. We have recently seen a serious shift of Government in France. We know now that M. Messmer is there to produce a government of Gaullist orthodoxy, and the tone in which the French Government are speaking about our commitments is beginning to become more extreme again. It is no good my right hon. Friend the Member for...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) ( 7 Jan 2020)

the Earl of Sandwich: ..., as we have heard more than once today. France and Germany will become the key European axis, with the UK now at one remove. But we must stay close to President Macron, who seems to have a Gaullist streak—although the noble Lord, Lord Robertson, said that he is a listening President. He certainly needs more external distractions at the moment and his position at home is precarious;...

EU Constitutional Treaty ( 6 Jun 2005)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...Union has had and will certainly not be the last—is also an opportunity to debate strategic priorities. We also ask Her Majesty's Government to do their best to combat the dreadful and negative Gaullist attempt to go back to the old stereotypes of Anglo-Saxon capitalism versus the European social model. There is no single European social model. The French model is not that which governs...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Naval Policy (11 Mar 1968)

Mr Christopher Mayhew: ...advantages to be gained, with American good will and without provoking the Communist countries, by the closest collaboration within N.A.T.O. between the missile submarine fleets of Britain and post-Gaullist France. At present, there are five independent nuclear deterrents in the world. This initiative would reduce the number to four. Surely this is worth considering. Surely it would be a...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Foreign Affairs ( 2 Nov 1967)

Mr Jeremy Thorpe: ...to be present on the Monday before last, perhaps I may be forgiven if I repeat one or two of the passages in that Report. The Report says—this was not General de Gaulle; this was not a leading de Gaullist; this is the Report of a European Commission: Sterling … will be a problem for the Community, and even the modest 3 per cent. growth rate between now and 1970 may overstrain the...

Orders of the Day — Wales Bill: The Welsh Assembly (19 Jul 1978)

Mr Donald Anderson: ...those of you in the House who favour PR. I am with you so far, but not on this particular proposal." I had hoped to hear something a little more positive from the right hon. Member than a Gaullist "I understand" kind of apporach, which can be taken in whatever way the hearer wishes. I was also intrigued by the point made by the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson). He...

Libya (Arms Supplies) (17 Jun 1969)

Mr Donald Anderson: ...supply of Chieftain tanks to Israel, Israel, on the whole, has had a good deal from this country. Friends of Israel will favourably compare the response of our own Government with the response of Gaullist France to Israel in February, in her time of difficulty, when our Government made it clear that they were not prepared to join in a unilateral embargo on arms sales to Israel. If, as the...
