Control of Concentrations (17 May 1989)

Mr Alex Carlile: .... However, one is bound to suspect in the light of recent statements by the Prime Minister that the Government give the appearance of accepting the proposals grudgingly but are really exercising a Gaullist objection to the further Community's development. If so, I regret that very much.

Smoking in Public Places ( 8 May 1989)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: ...Single European Act, and which has been a most progressive instrument towards a federal Europe. It is no good making these silly remarks which give the impression that there is some reality to the Gaullist and nationalist rhetoric that comes from this party. My hon. Friend must realise that we are a federalist party. This silly talk about nation states simply shows how disloyal he is. That...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Finance) Bill (27 Oct 1988)

Mr Stuart Holland: ...within Europe, as they did the proposal made last year for a networking of regional enterprise agencies and local and regional governments in the Community. The Prime Minister probably likes the Gaullist comparison made by commentators and cartoonists following her Bruges speech, but her policies are not Gaullist and nor is she Charles de Gaulle. Charles de Gaulle was aganst federalism,...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Finance) Bill (11 Jul 1988)

Mr Stuart Holland: ...from him. He spoke about the considerable significance of the Bill, especially as it reflects the Single European Act which, in terms of public perception, has quietly transformed the long-standing Gaullist veto agreed at the Luxembourg compromise in January 1966 into the reintroduction of majority voting. It is argued that increased payments will be made which have not yet been approved...

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 — 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...

European Community (21 May 1984)

Mr James Spicer: ...raises an interesting point, but it is easy to point the finger at the West German Government, who were at that time a Social Democratic Government, and at France, which had a Socialist or a Gaullist Government. If one wanted to extend the matter, one could point the finger at the previous Labour Government, because they were instrumental in providing the Argentine fleet with a large part...

European Community (Budget) ( 1 Dec 1983)

Mr Russell Johnston: ..., we are not in fundamental dispute with the key objectives of the Government within the budget and for the common agricultural policy, but we are definitely at variance with them in the limited Gaullist way they have approached these issues and the effect that this has had on our ability to be seen as seeking general reform as opposed simply to national advantage. After all, the...

European Council ( 7 Dec 1982)

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark: ...were in the Midlands to hear her usual robust comments on the problems that we are having with Japan and Spain over unfair imports? Will she instil into some of her appropriate Ministers the same Gaullist approach in trying to ensure that this untenable situation is changed? I hope that she will accept that some of us feel that the footbridge between Gibraltar and Spain may be bought at...

Orders of the Day — Joint European Energy Policy (18 Jan 1982)

Sir Anthony Meyer: .... The French nuclear programme is there to prove it. On the other hand, might not the rest of Europe, and perhaps even France herself, be enjoying cheaper and more secure energy supplies had not Gaullist France strangled Euratom in its cradle? I shall take another example nearer home, in my constituency. As the Minister knows, the Point of Ayr colliery in my constituency is to be the site...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Workers ( 9 Dec 1981)

Mr George Younger: I share my hon. Friend's mystification about the activities of that Member of the European Parliament, who seems to be part of the Gaullist group in the EEC. However, her reading cannot have been effective if she thinks that the Government have neglected farming, because the reverse is true.

Orders of the Day — European Community (Mandate) (29 Oct 1981)

...see how Mr. Ertl, the German Minister of Agriculture, will be able to accept them, or, indeed, that fierce lady who has just become Minister of Agriculture in France, and who sometimes sounds more Gaullist than Mr. Chirac on these matters. I cannot see her accepting them either. Perhaps we can be told by the Financial Secretary how the Government see these so-called guidelines being put...

European Community (Council of Fisheries Ministers' Meeting) (28 Jul 1981)

Mr James Johnson: Is not this a typical example of the callous and cynical attitude of our Gallic or Gaullist partners in the EEC? Is not the right hon. Gentleman now helpless? Will he give a pledge that he will do his best to call into any port available anyone who is caught poaching, particularly anyone in French vessels?

Orders of the Day — The Army ( 9 Jul 1981)

Bruce George: ..., are damaging NATO by concentrating on nuclear weapons. We shall be back in the Sandys era of concentration on nuclear weapons to the detriment of conventional forces. I believe that such a Gaullist attitude is inimical to collective security. I believe that our allies will certainly recognise that. I hope that the realities of the situation will soon prevail and that we shall make the...

Orders of the Day — Royal Air Force (23 Jun 1981)

Bruce George: ...alliance system—to use that well-worn American phrase—we will have destabilisation, and that would lead to serious consequences. Some people have argued for a form of Gaullism. However, a Gaullist Britain would be a highly expensive and dangerous place. People who look to France for support for this principle must remember that in the presidential election the French President...

Foreign Affairs ( 7 May 1981)

Mr Russell Johnston: ...rejecting the whole idea of seeking to achieve an economically and politically integrated Europe. In theory, and in the play-acting of political posturing, the Conservative Party is cast as the Gaullist nationalist who will go his own way, irrespective of others. The Labour party is portrayed as outward-looking and internationalist. However, looking beyond the rhetoric, the practical...

European Community (Fisheries Ministers' Meeting) (12 Feb 1981)

Mr James Johnson: May I congratulate the Minister on taking a firm stand against his Gaullist opponents in the Fisheries Council? We welcome his statement about the need for an inquiry into the dumping of fish in this country. In that connection, is he aware that a boat has just left Hull on its way to Arctic waters off the coast of Norway? It is on a hiding to nothing; it is a sheer gamble. It can catch cod...

European Community (18 Dec 1980)

Mr Roger Moate: opportunity for this country to get away from the sterile arguments of which many of us are sick and tired. It presents an opportunity. There is a genuine argument between those who want a Gaullist Europe with a true partnership of nations and those who want a federal Europe. That is a legitimate argument that will persist, and it can be carried on within the context of membership. So...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (31 Jul 1980)

Gwyneth Dunwoody: ...that contained nine different nationalities, whereas the Liberals had only two? He spoke about the problems that only the British bring to the European Parliament. Has he ever listened to a French Gaullist and a French Communist discussing matters in the European Parliament?

New Clause 3: Right of Workers to Demand a Ballot Before Industria Action is Taken (22 Apr 1980)

Barry Sheerman: .... Rather than resolving the dispute, the management suddenly decided last Friday to hold a ballot. Instead of holding consultations and cementing good union and management relationships, the old Gaullist frame-word of "civilised life" was imposed. The management said, in effect, in its ballot: "We have three questions for you to answer chaps. They are simple, and all are loaded against...
