Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 1987)

Julian Brazier: It is with some trepidation that I speak in this debate on the Gracious Speech. Even after the excellent advice that the new boys receive from Mr. Speaker and many of the old hands that we should wait a bit before speaking, there are always a few of us who cannot restrain our enthusiasm. It is a great privilege to succeed Sir David Crouch, as he now is. He was a very popular constituency...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is it in order for my hon. Friend to comment on my constituency matters?

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: I should like to take this opportunity to say that the reason why I did not take up the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Ashford (Mr. Speed) here and now is precisely because the right opportunity to do that, as he knows, is in a fortnight, and not now.

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: I think my hon. Friend misheard me. I did not suggest that the motion had been brought forward with undue haste. I said that the bringing forward of the motion was inducing undue haste. After all, there is only a week to wait for the Lords amendments to be ready.

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: The House will be pleased to know that I will keep it brief, as we have had many late nights. It is with some sadness that, after less than a month in the House, I am rising to speak against a Government motion. I should say that I support the Government's values strongly. The first experience that the new boys had of the procedures of the House was the election of Mr. Speaker a few weeks...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Bolsover, (Mr. Skinner) for his support. I never expected, so early in my career in the House, to be on the same side of the argument as the hon. Gentleman. The Government are perfectly aware that the motion is totally unnecessary for the passing of the Channel Tunnel Bill. It is also totally unnecessary legally. We are aware that the Government are...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: No, I am suggesting that they should go to the Examiners, but in their good time, when the other place has finished considering them. I should like to give a brief quotation from the proceedings of the other place on the procedure. It illustrates the extent to which this business has been steamrollered through. The Chairman of the House of Lords Select Committee considering this matter said:...

Orders of the Day — Channel Tunnel Bill (8 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: My hon. Friend said that the purpose of the motion was to ensure that the Examiners examined these amendments. He knows that the motion is designed to ensure that these points are examined earlier than would normally be the case, and before the other place has completed its consideration. We think that the procedures and customs of the House, at this late stage on this long Bill, should be...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Civil Servants (Pensions) (13 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: You, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and the small remaining band of happy warriors look so comfortable at nearly three in the morning that I am sure you will be disappointed to hear that I shall be brief. I should like to follow up a few of the points made by my hon. Friend the Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook). I start by declaring an indirect interest. Most of my mother's relations were overseas...

New Clause 3: Rate Reduction (Edinburgh District) (20 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

New Clause 3: Permitted Excess of the Fund (20 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: I shall speak only about the part of the Bill dealing with portable pensions. It will not produce headlines in the media, because it suffers from two defects — it is not particularly controversial and it is quite difficult to understand. Faced with such complicated provisions, the House could easily lose sight of the fact that the provision on portable pensions is a very important measure...

New Clause 3: Permitted Excess of the Fund (20 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: I take the point made by the hon. Member for Sedgefield (Mr. Blair). The Bill goes a long way towards meeting the demands made by my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington. The measure on portable pensions has an indirect effect that goes well beyond its direct effect. I shall illustrate that point. As I understand it, the measure offers the right to anybody who wishes to do so to ask to have...

Channel Tunnel Bill (21 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: Hon. Members may be relieved to hear that I shall be brief. This is the first wedding anniversary that I have been able to spend in this country and I shall be in trouble with a higher authority if I speak for long. Unlike the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Mr. Holland) I have no objection to any of the amendments themselves but, as you have just reminded us, Mr. Deputy Speaker, we are not...

Channel Tunnel Bill (21 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: We were not Members of the House, as the hon. Gentleman well knows. I know, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that you in your wisdom will determine whether I am in order or not; however, I would not be able to forgive myself if I sheltered entirely behind my constituency interests in saying that I feel profoundly unhappy about this matter. As I said earlier, this is an unseemly motion, covering an unsound...

Channel Tunnel Bill (21 Jul 1987)

Julian Brazier: In his last speech to the House, Sir David Crouch distinguished clearly and correctly his own views from those of his constituents and made it clear that, though he supported these proposals, the vast majority of the people in his constituency did not do so.

Health (23 Oct 1987)

Julian Brazier: The hon. Lady has taken an example from the lowest age band spectrum. To give her an example from the other end of that spectrum, a local authority in my constituency has decided to close an old people's home because it is old, damp and crumbling and much better facilities can be provided elsewhere for those people, yet the local Labour party has protested that, because we are closing this...

Health (23 Oct 1987)

Julian Brazier: The matter to which the hon. Gentleman referred is sub judice, so I cannot say very much about it. However, it should be stressed that the home upon which that thoroughly unbalanced film concentrated was removed two years ago from the ownership of the people involved, because of the action that was taken by the social services.

Defence (27 Oct 1987)

Julian Brazier: Was that one of the firms of stockbrokers which, three weeks ago, predicted that the bull market would continue?

Defence (27 Oct 1987)

Julian Brazier: rose
