Hong Kong (5 Jul 1989)

George Galloway: Give it back to Pol Pot.

Orders of the Day — Defence Estimates: Second Day's Debate (19 Oct 1989)

George Galloway: I also welcome the Minister to his new position. He is an old friend of mine and I hope that we will not fall out this evening. I hope that I have not caused him any problems with that confession. The answer that the Minister has given on the NFR90 does not seem adequate. I take the health warning that he issued earlier: he is newly in the job and he will receive letters and suchlike...

Orders of the Day — Defence Estimates: Second Day's Debate (19 Oct 1989)

George Galloway: I want genuinely to welcome the Minister of State for Defence Procurement to his new position. He will certainly improve the intelligence quotient in his ministerial team, if not the dampness quotient, and will equally certainly bring some sense of humour to the deliberations of a fairly dry bunch. I had also expected that in speaking in this first defence debate since he assumed his...

Orders of the Day — Defence Estimates: Second Day's Debate (19 Oct 1989)

George Galloway: No, because I have only 10 minutes and I want to press on. While I have the attention of the Minister of State for Defence Procurement, I want to say that many of us are worried about the precipitate withdrawal from the NFR90 project and nothing said tonight convinces me otherwise. I hope that in days to come—for there is no time now—we shall be told what will be done on the question of...

Prayers: Student Loans (20 Oct 1989)

George Galloway: The hon. Member for Chichester (Mr. Nelson) made a splendid speech and the whole House is grateful to him for giving us the benefit of his experience as a merchant banker and bringing to bear some of the more salient fiscal facts of life. I have long since abandoned hope that the Government will listen to moral or principled arguments. If they are not persuaded by the hard pounds, shillings...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Lebanon (25 Oct 1989)

George Galloway: The Minister could acknowledge rather more than he has in his answer the extent to which the fly in the ointment, or rather the dangerous angry hornet in the ointment in the Lebanon, is Syria. The Minister welcomes the Ta'if agreement, but surely an agreement that gives the Syrians two years to withdraw from Beirut and an unlimited time to withdraw from the Lebanon as a whole is rather less...

Chancellor of the Exchequer (Resignation) (26 Oct 1989)

George Galloway: Can we have an assurance that the right hon. Member for Huntingdon (Mr. Major) will bring to his individual office all the strength of character and independence of spirit that he displayed last week in Kuala Lumpur? Is not the major question this afternoon whether a poodle can stand tall enough to open the door of No. 11 Downing street?

Ambulance Dispute (9 Nov 1989)

George Galloway: rose——

Opposition Day: Cambodia (13 Nov 1989)

George Galloway: The hon. Gentleman should read his speech in Hansard in the morning.

Orders of the Day — Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (23 Nov 1989)

George Galloway: Having been present in the Chamber since 2.30 pm, I wish that I had time to follow Conservative Members along the great philosophical boulevards down which they have taken us today. In a most extraordinary speech, the hon. Member for Winchester (Mr. Browne) described the Gracious Speech—I believe that he must have been referring to she who ordered it to be written rather than she who read...

Famine (Ethiopia) (13 Dec 1989)

George Galloway: I sympathise with the Minister of State, who is not in his place at the moment, because this is the second time in just a few weeks that he has been dragged to the House to defend the indefensible. On the first ocasion he sought to defend the Government's policy in Cambodia, which we regard as beyond belief. On this occasion, he is defending the Government's response to the famine, which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (10 Jan 1990)

George Galloway: Is the Minister aware that one of the prominent individuals to whom he referred earlier who has been banned from travel, is Dr. Faisal Husseini? Anyone who knows anything about the area knows that Dr. Husseini's standing is such that he is indispensable to the peace process. Will the Minister join the United States of America's State Department utterly to condemn the decision to preclude him...

Housing and Local Government (Scotland) (25 Jan 1990)

George Galloway: I am anxious that fairness should be done. Is it not the case that my hon. Friends from Edinburgh are occupied with the important issue of Ferranti, and the right hon. and learned Gentleman's remarks might just be the cheapest of shots?

Housing and Local Government (Scotland) (25 Jan 1990)

George Galloway: rose—

Housing and Local Government (Scotland) (25 Jan 1990)

George Galloway: rose—

Housing and Local Government (Scotland) (25 Jan 1990)

George Galloway: It was a good ending.

King's Cross Railways Bill (8 Feb 1990)

George Galloway: I, too, had the privilege of sitting selflessly on the Committee considering the King's Cross Railways Bill. Somebody up there in the Whips' Office likes me, too. I sat on the Committee considering the Dartford-Thurrock Crossing Bill, to which the hon. Member for Tatton (Mr. Hamilton) referred. That Bill dealt with a bridge from one place to another place where I had never been and which I...

King's Cross Railways Bill (8 Feb 1990)

George Galloway: He was a very distinguished Chairman. He did not leave his place very often, either. I see that he has his reward in heaven, his canonisation by the Chief Whip and now sits on the Treasury Bench, so perhaps the hon. Member for Tatton has something to look forward to after all.

King's Cross Railways Bill (8 Feb 1990)

George Galloway: If it is proper to say so, I had always thought the measure a dubious one. After those 22 days, the Committee made a fairly strong recommendation which I understand the House later overturned. It may be that our wisdom has been vindicated and the measure will return. Having served my 22 days on the Dartford-Thurrock Crossing Bill, clearly I transgressed again, because I was given the chalice...

King's Cross Railways Bill (8 Feb 1990)

George Galloway: By definition, the longer a Bill goes on, the more such clashes of responsibility are likely to occur and to prove problematic. I have much sympathy with my hon. Friends who criticise the private Bill procedure, but that issue is different from the motion that we are discussing. As a Scottish Member of Parliament, I must be in my constituency on Friday and often have constituency business on...
