Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Hana Siniora (3 Feb 1988)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Israeli Government about the harassment of the Palestinian journalist Hana Siniora by the Israeli security forces; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Hana Siniora (3 Feb 1988)

George Galloway: Although I am grateful for the wise and courageous stance that Her Majesty's Government are taking on the issue and for many statements on the subject that have been made today and of late, does the Minister agree that, more than anything else, the Israelis and Palestinians now need less war, war, and more jaw, jaw? Dialogue is impossible unless there is local leadership that has the...

The Royal Navy (3 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: I shall restrict my remarks because other hon. Members wish to speak in the debate. However, I want to associate myself with the remarks of my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne, East (Mr. Brown) about the deeply offensive, insulting and libellous equation which has been made consistently by Government Members throughout the debate — that anyone who challenges the nuclear...

Orders of the Day — Education Reform Bill: Scottish Universities Funding (22 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Given that this is a one-hour debate on a subject of vital importance to Scotland, especially to hon. Members with constituency interests, are we seriously expected to believe that the Minister is proposing to wind up the debate at 9.46 pm?

Orders of the Day — Education Reform Bill: Scottish Universities Funding (22 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: But this is an outrage. The whole process of—

Orders of the Day — Education Reform Bill: Scottish Universities Funding (22 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. How can you permit this mockery and insult to Scottish education and to Scotland? We have been given one hour to discuss matters of vital importance to the Scottish education community. That time has been taken up by hon. Members with no interest, either constituency or otherwise, and we have been insulted by the Minister rising to wind up the...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Scottish House Condition Survey (29 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: Nothing bears better testimony to the utter cynicism of the Conservative party about Scottish housing than the vast expanses of green on the Conservative benches. I thought for a moment that they were about to grow vaster, but I see that the hon. Membr for Tayside, North (Mr. Walker) is not leaving us. We see precisely two Scottish Conservative Members, yet when the Division Bell rings no...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Scottish House Condition Survey (29 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: The hon. Gentleman has proved that he has at least 10 fingers, but there are, as I say, only two Scottish Conservative Members present to deal with this vital issue. The Minister gets paid to sit where he is and would lose his job if he did not, and the hon. Member for Tayside, North is the only Conservative Member not much in demand as a dining companion, so he can sit here at 7.3 pm. My...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Rights of Scottish Special Housing Association Tenants (29 Mar 1988)

George Galloway: Is my hon. Friend aware of just how intensely the hon. Member for Lancaster (Dame E. Kellett-Bowman) is listening to his speech, and how interested she is?

Persian Gulf (Developments) (18 Apr 1988)

George Galloway: Opposition Members are not troubled by the fact that there has been a response against Iranian aggression—we are in favour of a tough response against such aggression; what troubles us, and troubles the Royal Navy personnel with whom I have spoken in the Gulf, is the unilateral nature of such American action. I have heard the Minister say three times in the House that a UN-commanded naval...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Radiographers (27 Apr 1988)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the work of Scotland's radiographers within the National Health Service.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Radiographers (27 Apr 1988)

George Galloway: Scotland's X-ray men and women will clearly see through the hypocritical cant of that answer. The Government have given early retirement opportunities at the age of 55 to physiotherapists and many grades of nurses on the ground that their work is strenuous. Why have they refused to allow radiographers to be considered for early retirement? Is their job not strenuous? Why are radiographers not...

Opposition Day: Seamen's Dispute (11 May 1988)

George Galloway: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm that some of those waiters and waitresses on whom Conservative Members spat and are still spitting their contempt saved lives during the Zeebrugge disaster involving the Herald of Free Enterprise? They are vital members of the crew when accidents or fires occur.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israeli-Arab Dispute (8 Jun 1988)

George Galloway: Hearing the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and having returned only a day or two ago from the occupied territories, I wonder whether the Government are as aware as they ought to be of just how serious is the reign of terror in which the occupying forces are engaged. Bodies are being carried through the streets to hospitals and clinics. People are being shot, beaten...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israeli-Arab Dispute (8 Jun 1988)

George Galloway: The 63-year-old wife of the gentleman who helped the Minister of State was savagely beaten by Israeli soldiers three days after the Minister left the camp. Four of her ribs and her arm were broken by the Israeli occupying troops.

Business of the House (23 Jun 1988)

George Galloway: The Leader of the House has been playing cat and mouse with this Chamber long enough in respect of the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs. What started out looking like honest endeavours are now sounding very much like weasel words. Will the right hon. Gentleman deal straight with the people of Scotland? Will he accept the momentous consequences of an admission that a governing party cannot...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Mr. Bandur Singh (29 Jun 1988)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress he has made in his inquiries into the treatment in Her Majesty's prison Barlinnie of the late Mr. Bandur Singh; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Mr. Bandur Singh (29 Jun 1988)

George Galloway: Is the Minister aware of the state of anxiety, bordering on real fear, felt in many of Scotland's ethnic communities as a result of this case and others? Can he begin to grasp what it must have been like for a person to spend six months without being able to speak any English, in the cauldron of hate that Barlinnie and other Scottish prisons have become, for no crime other than being in the...

Foreign Affairs (30 Jun 1988)

George Galloway: It is a privilege to follow such a legend in these debates. I hope that the right hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Mr. Amery) will forgive me if I do not follow his arguments. Like other speakers, I am disappointed that it has taken us more than a year to have this foreign affairs debate, and because we have waited so long for it I was the more disappointed in the speech made by the...
