Royal Navy (28 Feb 1989)

George Galloway: I was intending to speak about the armed forces, as I did last year. Perhaps I should remind the hon. Member for Dorset, South (Mr. Bruce) that he is talking to a former lance bombardier of the Royal Artillery battery II of the Army Cadet Force. I am no "pinko pacifist", or any kind of pacifist, and I pay tribute now, as I did last year, to the outstanding work of the Royal Navy. It happens,...

Royal Navy (28 Feb 1989)

George Galloway: That of course does not take into account those that are out of service, are being repaired or are unavailable for one reason or another. This Minister who has just intervened made an extraordinary intervention earlier in saying that we had managed with the Armilla patrol when something came up. However, the Armilla patrol, with which our Royal Navy did a wonderful job but which was a long...

Royal Navy (28 Feb 1989)

George Galloway: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. I asked him five questions and he has not answered any of them, though he has answered plenty of other people's questions. Can he answer one point for me on the tendering for the type 23s? Will he give a guarantee that the decision about where those orders will be placed will be made on the basis of competitive tendering and that the yard that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Constitution (1 Mar 1989)

George Galloway: Is it not a breathtaking effrontery for the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan (Mr. Salmond) to ask the Government such a question when the SNP is conspiring with the Government to paralyse any possibility of constitutional progress in Scotland? Is it not the case that the Government and the Scottish Nationalist party are two sides of the same coin and that Scottish constitutional progress is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (8 Mar 1989)

George Galloway: Does the Minister accept that, with the possible exception of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Leicester, West (Mr. Janner), the whole House was greatly impressed by, and admired the skill, clarity and courage of, the statements that the hon. Gentleman made on his trip to the occupied territories? He walked there in the distinguished footsteps of his predecessor—the present...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israeli Foreign Minister (12 Apr 1989)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he next expects to meet the Israeli Foreign Minister of State; and what will be discussed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israeli Foreign Minister (12 Apr 1989)

George Galloway: When the Foreign Minister meets Professor Arens will he raise the question of the arrest yesterday of two prominent leaders of the Palestinian community on the West Bank—the distinguished Jerusalem journalist Sam'an Khouri, and Adnan Shalalda? Today those men were charged before a military court with being leaders of their own people in the territory in which they live and have always...

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill (17 Apr 1989)

George Galloway: Does not the hon. Gentleman understand the simple point that, if there is a dock strike, the Opposition will feel it necessary to support the workers? However, we do not want a strike. Given his famous name, would not the hon. Member for Davyhulme (Mr. Churchill) accept that it would be better to get round a table and have some jaw-jaw, rather than war-war with the dockers?

Dock Work Bill (Allocation of Time) (8 May 1989)

George Galloway: Given the hon. Gentleman's grandparentage, I doubt whether I am alone in finding the degree to which he seems to welcome this move to do down the dockers pretty unseemly. In his ire against the dockers, however, will he not find time to remember that Mr. Connolly and Mr. Todd visited the National Association of Port Employers last month? They offered to negotiate new arrangements for the...

Dock Work Bill (Allocation of Time) (8 May 1989)

George Galloway: What about Tory Members?

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill: Dissolution of National Dock Labour Board (24 May 1989)

George Galloway: The hon. Member for Thurrock (Mr. Janman) spoke with the authentic voice of the Tory Back-Bench backwoods engine which is driving the Government to this extraordinary path. The carefully contrived early-day motions and the student japes over the years have been determined to pick a fight with Britain's dockers and finally to bring them down. The ideological cave dwellers, of whom the hon....

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill: Dissolution of National Dock Labour Board (24 May 1989)

George Galloway: I will give way in a moment. Conservative Back Bench Members have an unseemly and shabby desire to rubbish and eventually smash a section of the British work force that has served this country well. I represent many dockers because part of the port of Glasgow is in my constituency. In the past few weeks, I have spent much time in the company of dockers and their families. There are few less...

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill: Dissolution of National Dock Labour Board (24 May 1989)

George Galloway: I shall not stoop to answer that intervention—

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill: Dissolution of National Dock Labour Board (24 May 1989)

George Galloway: It was, sadly, up to the hon. Gentleman's usual standard. There are few less pleasant or edifying sights than people who would not last a day working in Britain's docks maligning and sneering at the dockers of this country, describing them as dodgers, bobbers, welters, work shy, strike-happy, lazy, good-for-nothing men. How many Conservative Members could exchange their lounge suits for a...

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill: Dissolution of National Dock Labour Board (24 May 1989)

George Galloway: The hon. Gentleman refers to ghosting and bobbing, but he is particularly well-upholstered. I should like to see him on a quayside with a docker's hook in his hand because he would not last half a day, never mind a day.

Orders of the Day — Dock Work Bill: Dissolution of National Dock Labour Board (24 May 1989)

George Galloway: I am finishing my speech now, so I shall not give way. The dockers are a group of hard-working, patriotic men with a strong sense of community, whose work the public will quickly come to value—especially if there is an industrial dispute—and which they will evaluate rather more highly than they do the mob of Conservative Back Benchers and Ministers who think that they are doing a...

Community Charge (Scotland) (21 Jun 1989)

George Galloway: What about Grampian?

Community Charge (Scotland) (21 Jun 1989)

George Galloway: We have just heard the red Clydesider from Banff and Buchan talking about the great and stalwart fight which his colleagues in the Grampian region are conducting. His colleague sitting next to him, the hon. Member for Angus, East (Mr. Welsh) comes from the local authority which is one of the most assiduous collectors of the poll tax in Scotland. However, I would be wasting the five minutes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Adam Smith Institute (5 Jul 1989)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent communications he has had with Mr. Douglas Mason and the Adam Smith Institute; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Adam Smith Institute (5 Jul 1989)

George Galloway: In any of those contacts was the Secretary of State spared Mr. Douglas Mason's bizarre and unbelievable idea that Hong Kong should be towed, lock, stock and barrel and relocated off the west coast of Scotland, on one of the western isles? As I listened to the radio interview, I thought that the man must be barking mad, until I realised that it was the same Douglas Mason who was the architect...
