Orders of the Day — Official Information Bill (19 Jan 1979)

Mr Chris Price: My hon. Friend might like to know that I and a number of my hon. Friends have laid Mr. Chapman Pincher's book before the Attorney General and made a complaint against breaches of the Official Secrets Act. Although that took place some time ago, I understand that the Attorney General is still considering the matter.

Orders of the Day — British Telecommunications Bill: Interception of Mail (1 Apr 1981)

Mr Chris Price: ...to draw the attention of the House, without giving away any vital secrets of the country, to something that he feels is improper, it is vital that the House should listen. No one, not even Chapman Pincher, could accuse any of the three members of the Post Office Engineering Union in the House of being a Lefty, a Trot or a secret Communist. By and large, that trade union happens to be...

Orders of the Day — Official Secrets Act (Amendment) Bill (26 Apr 1985)

Mr Chris Smith: ...it as indefensible. It has also been criticised in many letters that I have received since laying the Bill before the House. One which may be of interest to hon. Members was from Mr. Chapman Pincher. He wrote to me at the beginning of February to say: Dear Mr. Smith, I wish you well with your Bill to abolish Section 2 of the Official Secrets Act. It is 13 years since I gave evidence on...

Orders of the Day — Security Services (Prime Minister) (23 Nov 1988)

Chris Mullin: ..., there are books by several others which to a greater or lesser degree confirm that the Prime Minister has been grossly misled by the security services. They are the collected works of Mr. Chapman Pincher, "The Pencourt File" by Barrie Penrose and Roger Courtier, and the memoirs of the former MI6 officer Mr. Anthony Cavendish, which were also banned. I propose to examine the Prime...

Bills Presented: Energy Efficiency (30 Jun 2010)

Emily Thornberry: ...-efficient windows, while the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton) promoted ground source heat pumps, which are made in her constituency. My hon. Friend the Member for Derby North (Chris Williamson) asked the Chancellor to think again, as we all do. Meanwhile, the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) made a wide-ranging and well informed speech, calling...

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Crime and Policing (8 Sep 2010)

Alan Johnson: It is great to hear Conservative Members accepting that crime has fallen, as they spent so long dancing around the issue under the right hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling). They were told off by the UK statistics authorities and by everyone who looked at the matter. Some people in the police force are looking askance at what this Government are doing. I mentioned the record...

Armed Forces Bill (10 Jan 2011)

Christopher Pincher: ...to discuss servicemen and women's kit and training. Those issues have already been mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Milton Keynes North (Mark Lancaster) and the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant)-neither of whom is in his seat-which demonstrates there is some bipartisanship on the issue. One of my oldest friends is an officer serving with the Royal Welsh who has two tours...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Banking (9 Feb 2011)

George Osborne: I must say that it is a slightly depressing thought that the appointment of the hon. Member for Vale of Clwyd (Chris Ruane) as shadow Parliamentary Private Secretary means that this will be a constant feature of the encounters in the House between me and the shadow Chancellor, but there we go. My hon. Friend the Member for Tamworth (Christopher Pincher) makes a very good point. There are,...

Armed Forces Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 2 — Armed forces covenant report (14 Jun 2011)

Christopher Pincher: ...Bill. She says that she is keen to see things in black and white, and she refers to the prescription that she would like to see on the face of the Bill. May I point her to the evidence given by Chris Simpkins of the Royal British Legion in answer to my question? I asked: “You seem to accept, therefore, that having a prescriptive set of pillars—areas that need to be focused on—in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Phone Hacking and the Media (11 Jul 2011)

Christopher Pincher: Does my right hon. Friend think that it is a great pity that the very fine and bipartisan speech made last Wednesday by the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) was not repeated today by the Leader of the Opposition? Does not the contrast between those two speeches demonstrate who is the better and more thoughtful man on this issue?

Armed Forces Personnel (10 Nov 2011)

Christopher Pincher: ...East (Mr Ellwood). It is also a great challenge to follow such eloquent Members as my hon. Friend the Member for South West Wiltshire (Dr Murrison) and the ever-eloquent hon. Member for Islwyn (Chris Evans), who is not in his place. He is truly the heir to Aneurin Bevan—at least I am sure that is what his memoirs will say. First, may I put on the record my admiration for the work of my...

Immigration (12 Dec 2011)

Diana R. Johnson: ...was in chaos. That is not correct. Instead, the coalition is building on many of the positive steps and measures introduced by the previous Government. My hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) made some thoughtful comments in his opening contribution. He identified some of the difficult issues surrounding immigration, including those to do with marriage and family reunion and...

Chris Heaton-Harris: ...and is undergoing surgery. As we have heard from Members on both sides of the House, including the hon. Member for Feltham and Heston and my hon. Friend the Member for Tamworth (Christopher Pincher), aviation plays a critical role in UK plc. My constituency, which is in the heart of the midlands, near junctions 15 to 19 of the M1—anyone who remembers seeing the old Rugby radio mast...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Use of Powered Wheelchairs (Weight and Age Limit) (20 Mar 2012)

Aidan Burley: ...greatest need for this equipment. We all know in this House that ten-minute rule Bills rarely make it on to the statute book. I am already anticipating the cry from the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) of “House not sitting” when I read out the date for my Second Reading debate. However, I am honoured that both the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, the hon. Member for...
