Industry Bill: Clause 1 ( 6 Feb 1980)

Mr Stuart Holland: ...the State Hydrocarbons Corporation in Italy. We should also look at the National Investment Company in Belgium, where Christian Democratic influence is strong. We should look at France under the Gaullist Party and under Giscard d'Estaing, where there is an Industrial Development Institute. In Germany, major extension of public enterprise has been seriously considered in the United...

North Sea Oil ( 6 Jul 1979)

Mr Michael Brown: ...industry. The operation of supply and demand to ensure that oil is sold at the correct price is the best way to ensure an even and fair distribution of this scarce commodity. I am something of a Gaullist on matters relating to North Sea oil. I believe that this valuable commodity must be utilised for the benefit of our people. I appreciate that we live as a trading nation. That has been...

European Communities (Budget) (21 Feb 1979)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: ...Parliament and the Commission. The object of the alliance is to increase the powers of the European institutions. I thought that my hon. Friend the Member for Blaby (Mr. Lawson) made a splendid Gaullist speech in which he vigorously asserted our national rights, and most of all the Tory Party's continuing belief that big government does not work and that we must cut public expenditure. In...

Oral Answers to Questions — European Communities (Budget) (21 Feb 1979)

Kenneth Clarke: ...a sedentary position by the hon. Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr. Mitchell) because it seemed to me to raise a relevant point. Is it really the position that the hon. Gentleman is adopting a Gaullist attitude, that it is more important to try to cut the European Assembly down to size than to look at any possible advantage to this country from being in the EEC at all?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Developments) (15 Nov 1978)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: ...), is in an equally logical position. He has been for many years a European federalist. I respect and admire his position also. I am in a less logical and clear position, in that I am a European Gaullist. In that position, which is difficult to define, I suspect that I am joined now by the majority of the Tory Party. It is important that the Tory Party should now, in reconsidering its...

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...

European Community (Economic Policies) (16 Mar 1978)

Mr Ian Gow: ...of the whole that they will be in the same position as, say, Sussex, Northumberland or Scotland vis-à-vis the United Kingdom. That concept, is, of course, intensely political. I am an unashamed Gaullist in regard to the development of the Community. I want to see it develop as a voluntary cooperation among sovereign nation States which are able, when it suits them, to agree upon a...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Developments) (23 Feb 1978)

Mr Hugh Dykes: ...their outlook, even though they have different characteristics and traditions. In the middle, between Britain and Germany, is France. The old attitude in this country used to be that France was a Gaullist nation which wished to use the Community for its own national interests and for no other reasons and that France had no psychological commitment to Europe. I do not believe that that...

Orders of the Day — European Assembly Elections Bill: Simple Majority System (for Great Britain) with S.T.V. (for Northern Ireland). ( 8 Feb 1978)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: ...argument of the hon. Member for Dudley, West (Dr. Phipps), who sees it as an important step along the road towards a federal Europe. I am not an anti-Marketeer, I am a pro-Marketeer, but a Gaullist. I want to see the electorate voting for people whose primary duty is to uphold the interests of the British nation State. If a large part of the electorate is resident in the EEC, it is...

Orders of the Day — BBC Radio Services (14 Dec 1977)

Mr John Mendelson: countries with a properly developed democratic régime. That is a short-sighted and narrow view. As a constant visitor to France, I found it astonishing that during the early years of the Gaullist régime, over a period of about 12 years, all radio and television opinion that was not approved by the Gaullists in France hardly got a look in. There was a major strike by French television...

European Community (Social Security) (13 Dec 1977)

Mr George Cunningham: ...EEC, and it is the way in which they have established their dominance in the Community. It is an attitude that we must adopt. I do not feel at all sensitive that it would be condemned by some as a Gaullist approach.

Clause 1: Election of Representatives to the European Assembly ( 1 Dec 1977)

Mr Neil Marten: ..., as he is an out-and-out and accepted federalist, and I admire him for it. I disagree with him, but I always respect him. My right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Hexham has been a bit of a Gaullist at times, and that remark does not tie in with the attitude that he previously adopted. Almost finally on the point about the powers in the clause, I come to the famous manifesto of...

European Community (Fisheries) (28 Nov 1977)

Mr James Johnson: to make a passing comment on the quotas, which were mentioned by the hon. Member for Westmorland. He did not say what many people would say. Many people would call this Annex to R/2434/77 a Gaullist or Chauvinist shambles created by people on the Continent. A careful look at the quota figures indicates that they do not support the interests of the people we come here to represent. I...

Orders of the Day — European Assembly Elections Bill (24 Nov 1977)

Mr Ian Gow: a loose grouping of sovereign nation States and those who, like some of my hon. Friends, favour a move towards economic and monetary union—a move towards a federal Europe. I am an unashamed Gaullist. To me, Europe de patrieshas always been an ideal. To that extent I am an enthusiastic European, in the much misused sense of that greatly abused word. I want to see the nine nations that...

Orders of the Day — European Assembly Elections Bill ( 6 Jul 1977)

Mr Bruce Grocott: ...that the only consistent position to adopt is to be in favour of the Community and in favour of direct elections? Is not the experience of French membership, especially in the view of the Gaullist and other parties, almost the opposite?

Oral Answers to Questions — Paris (14 Jun 1977)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: ...Giscard d'Estaing on pressing ahead with the Bill for direct elections with the assent of all the parties of the Left in France and the opposition only of the unreconstructed elements in the Gaullist Party?

Oral Answers to Questions — European Parliament (Direct Elections) (19 Apr 1977)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: ...'s announcement by M. Marchais, the leader of the French Communists, that they were not now opposing the principle of direct elections? This means that only the most reactionary elements of the Gaullist Party are now opposed to the principle. Will he urge this unanimity upon our own party, in the hope that we shall not follow the Gaullist path?

Orders of the Day — International Finance, Trade and Aid Bill (31 Jan 1977)

Peter Viggers: ...economy. A flat statement that a trading nation needs to trade with its partners in the free world is necessary and should be on the record. The proper approach for this Government should be the Gaullist approach. We should work with Europe while the institutions there continue. We should express our support of international institutions and keep a prudent eye on our own position, because...

European Parliament (Direct Elections) (12 Jul 1976)

Gwyneth Dunwoody: ...time. But when I am at the point, as an elected Member of Parliament, of believing that we shall have to pray to St. Anthony, the patron saint of lost causes, and to rely on the good sense of the Gaullist party to get us out of this very difficult mess concerning direct elections, I hardly feel that the House of Commons is being treated seriously. This is one of the most fundamental...

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...
