Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill ( 3 Dec 1970)

Mr John Cronin: .... After all, even the Government of President de Gaulle took no steps to denationalise the Renault motor works. Even this nationalised firm was allowed to live in peace by the extremely Right-wing Gaullist Government. So, even though the Prime Minister and the Minister for Industry have been captured by the Right-wing of the Conservative Party—

Orders of the Day — Electricity Bill ( 6 Apr 1970)

Mr Maurice Edelman: ...boards of industrial companies. For a short time the thought of participation was much encouraged, and when it was thought to have the blessing of President de Gaulle it even became popular in the Gaullist party. But since then the idea of participation has waned, and in the past year it has been one that student revolutionaries rather than so-called sober politicians have been more...

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...

Libya (Arms Supplies) (17 Jun 1969)

Mr Donald Anderson: 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...

Anglo-French Relations (25 Feb 1969)

Mr Duncan Sandys: ...E.U. Governments at the recent meeting in Luxembourg. As has been said by the hon. and learned Member for Dulwich, the Parliamentary Assembly of W.E.U. in Paris last week, with the exception of the Gaullist members, expressed its wholehearted approval of the Luxembourg decision. As we know, General de Gaulle is again putting pressure on Chancellor Kiesinger, in an effort to persuade him...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (17 Feb 1969)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: Will the Foreign Secretary assure the House that he will not be intimidated by Gaullist bullying from continuing his efforts to co-ordinate European policy towards the Middle East, and, in particular, that he will not allow the conference of W.E.U. later this week to be called off?

Orders of the Day — Defence (25 Jul 1968)

Mr Arthur Newens: the 1940s with the break-away of Yugoslavia, but it developed more in the 1950s with the assertion of Chinese independence of Russia and of the assertion of independence of the United States by Gaullist France. It cannot be denied that social, political and economic changes will go on just as long as poverty exists in so many parts of the world. Political revolution will therefore...

Foreign Affairs (18 Jul 1968)

Mr Terence Boston: Before my right hon. Friend leaves that point, does he not feel that the recent French elections and the overwhelming Gaullist victory suggest that it is less likely that we shall have a chance of obtaining French agreement to entry? Also, does not the recent appointment of M. Couve de Murville as Prime Minister of France make it additionally less likely that France will change her view?

Orders of the Day — Science and Technology (23 May 1968)

Dr David Owen: .... It is only in its formative stages and perhaps the hopes for it are too optimistic, but it is to be built in Europe. The French have made a tentative offer to share Pierreporte. I cannot see Gaullist France prepared to share her technology, but this is a tempting offer to other countries in the E.E.C. There is considerable interest in Europeanising Capenhurst and it is a matter of great...

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...

Defence ( 4 Mar 1968)

Mr Alan L. Williams: ..., I have grave doubts about it. If one takes a hard look at political developments in France, is it unlikely that when the General goes, as he must at some time, a Government that replaces the Gaullist conception of Europe may not be a Right-wing Government but an extreme Left-wing Government. In Germany, the reverse may be true. The coalition there is not working at all well. There is a...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (24 Jan 1968)

Sir Peter Kirk: ...know whether the Government have considered that. The right hon. Gentleman mentioned the suggestions made, apparently, as an aside by General de Gaulle at his Press conference and now taken up by Gaullist speakers at Strasbourg and, according to rumour, by the German Government, about a possible industrial free trade area between E.F.T.A. and the E.E.C. I would be surprised if this one...

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

Mr Jeremy Thorpe: 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 — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address ( 1 Nov 1967)

Mr Maurice Edelman: ...them forward in order to overcome them. I believe that they are not insuperable objections. On the Right, among the Conservatives, we have men like Giscard d'Estaing who, although a member of the Gaullist majority, is also in favour of British entry into the Common Market. We should, I think, stretch out our hands to those people and try and renew the entente cordiale in a modern form....

European Communities (26 Oct 1967)

Mr George Brown: I am delighted to see my hon. Friend the Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Michael Foot) in his Gaullist uniform. The timetable remains and our approach is the same. This is that we should start negotiations soon. We kept the issues about which we want to negotiate before entry as short as we could, and, therefore, the period of negotiations could be a short one and the programme speedy. I see...

Aircraft Industry and Royal Air Force (Government Policies) (13 Jul 1967)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...not been transformed overnight quite to this extent. Doubtless, subsidiary and domestic factors played a part in the French decision. Of course, Marcel Bloch Dassault has great influence in the Gaullist Party. Of course, the quid pro quo for Dassault taking over the struggling Breguet organisation was permission to go into the serial production of the F.1 interceptor. That is something...

Middle East ( 6 Jul 1967)

Mr Jo Grimond: ...State that once this is over everything can go on as before. We have to give a lot of consideration to whether we want to be regarded as America's close ally, if not satellite, or move more into a Gaullist situation. To digress, this is extremely important in view of the reported remarks in the Foreign Secretary's excellent speech, if I may say so, about Europe. Although the Prime...

Clause 2. — (the Corporation's Functions.) (22 Nov 1966)

Mr John Biffen: try to divert industries to parts of the country where, because of the problems of communications and problems of indigenous labour, they would not otherwise go. I say with great respect to my Gaullist hon. Friend the Member for South Angus (Mr. Bruce-Gardyne) that we must not assume that the pursuit of industrial efficiency would necessarily lead to the fragmentation of British...

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...

European Economic Community (10 Nov 1966)

Mr Donald Anderson: right hon. Friend's long-awaited and positive statement, but why will he not couple this with a declaration of political intent, to offset the fears of those who imagine that we shall be more de Gaullist than de Gaulle when in the Community, and to prevent the emergence of an irresponsible Executive?
