King's Cross Railways Bill (8 Feb 1990)

George Galloway: Two of the members of the Committee have been reselected.

East-West Relations (22 Feb 1990)

George Galloway: I have just spent four days in a two-star hotel in Romania—an anti-junket—and it is about Romania that I want to talk in this important debate. I could not, in the 10 minutes available to me, describe the grotesque, bizarre and unbelievable character of the Ceausescu regime in Romania, the legacy of which I saw in those four days. Words simply fail me. Some hon. Members may have read...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Assistance to Exporters (14 Mar 1990)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he has any new plans to help British exporters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Assistance to Exporters (14 Mar 1990)

George Galloway: That all sounds patriotic, but why are the Government proceeding with the dogmatic privatisation nonsense in relation to the Export Credits Guarantee Department, some parts of which are being privatised while others are left with a big question mark over their future? That is spreading uncertainty throughout the OECD and those who depend on it. Why are the Government advancing with the Union...

Mr. Farzad Bazoft (Execution) (15 Mar 1990)

George Galloway: The Iraqi regime has besmirched the name of its people by the judicial murder this morning—as any state which commits judicial murder does. Will the Secretary of State accept that the House in general welcomes the cautious approach that he has taken in response——

Mr. Farzad Bazoft (Execution) (15 Mar 1990)

George Galloway: My hon. Friend says no, but the truth is that caution has been absent from much of the rhetoric since last week, and in my view that has been extremely damaging. People who know that part of the world have listened with a sense of increasing gloom to the gunboats being started up and the sabres dusted down in certain quarters. That is entirely counter-productive, and a man has paid for it...

Nuclear Trigger Devices (Iraq) (29 Mar 1990)

George Galloway: While no one in their right mind wants any new countries to acquire nuclear weapons, is the Secretary of State aware of the offence that is felt in the Arab and Islamic world at the assumptions which seem to lie behind such a hue and cry—that it is all right for some countries such as South Africa, Israel and ourselves to have nuclear weapons, but it is somehow fundamentally wrong for Arab...

London March (Disorder) (2 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: I was a speaker at the rally in Trafalgar square on Saturday and an eye-witness to the appalling scenes that the House is now discussing. My views on those scenes were widely quoted in yesterday's newspapers. I hope that the Home Secretary will acknowledge that and that I need not repeat them today. The Government would be doing themselves and the country an injustice if they attempted to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Shipbuilding (18 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the future of the shipbuilding industry in the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Shipbuilding (18 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: Is the Minister aware that the cost of building a ship has doubled in the past few years, yet worldwide demand for shipbuilding is booming and shipowners are falling over themselves to place new orders? In the light of that, do the Government not regret having done in the past 10 years what the Luftwaffe failed to do and closed down the great majority of British merchant shipbuilding capacity?

Gun Components (Iraq) (18 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: Does the Secretary of State accept that, even by his own standards, this has been a truly extraordinary performance at the Dispatch Box this afternoon? Even if it means leaning across to his colleague from the Foreign Office, will the right hon. Gentleman confirm that the reason that 44 of those pipes are now in Iraq and that only the last batch was stopped is that the information was given...

Opposition Day: Local Government Finance (25 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: The speech of the hon. Member for Stockport (Mr. Favell) was breathtaking in its simplicity. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will forgive me if I do not follow him down the byways that he travelled. While you were here, Mr. Speaker, and perhaps even more after you left, there was an extraordinary amount of laughter from Conservative Members. At first I thought that they had lunched rather...

Opposition Day: Local Government Finance (25 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: The hon. Gentleman says "Labour charges." Even he would not regard Glasgow district council or Strathclyde regional council as loony left.

Opposition Day: Local Government Finance (25 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: I do not have time. Some 400,000 people in Strathclyde region—nearly a quarter of the population—have been issued with summary warrants because they are so far in arrears with their poll tax payments; some 200,000 people in the Lothians—many in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh—have been issued with summary warrants. Strathclyde regional council has a financial shortfall of £100...

Opposition Day: Local Government Finance (25 Apr 1990)

George Galloway: I have worked hard all my life with my hands, and not as a bookie's runner. I am not an anarchist or a shirker. I am not even especially left wing. I am not in the Campaign group or the Tribune group. However, I am standing alongside the hundreds of thousands in Scotland who cannot pay the poll tax that Conservative Members find so funny. I started my speech with a watery metaphor, and I...

Business of the House (7 Jun 1990)

George Galloway: I draw the attention of the Leader of the House to early-day motion 1071 on the case of Jonathan Moyle. [That this House expresses its deep concern at the strange death of British journalist Jonathan Moyle, Editorof Defence Helicopter World, found in the cupboard of his Santiago hotel room, hanged by his own shirt from a bar 5 ft 4 inches from the ground although he was 5 ft 8 inches tall,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: International Aerospace Fair (19 Jun 1990)

George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he has received any report on the international aerospace fair in Chile in March; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: International Aerospace Fair (19 Jun 1990)

George Galloway: Is the Minister of State aware that there was much interest in that aerospace fair and that for at least one person, the journalist Jonathan Moyle, interest in it may well have proved fatal? Can the Minister tell the House whether the late Mr. Moyle, when he was in Chile during the week before his death, at any time visited the British embassy in Santiago and whether any officials there had...

Orders of the Day — Associated British Ports (No. 2) Bill (By Order) (25 Jun 1990)

George Galloway: I hope that this is a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. May I take you back to the written answer given by the Lord President of the Council? It seems to many hon. Members that it is germane to consideration of this business. Have you read that written answer? If not, will you suspend the House for five minutes so that you can do so and properly apprise yourself of its import?

Orders of the Day — Associated British Ports (No. 2) Bill (By Order) (25 Jun 1990)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It seems to be bordering on a contempt of the House for such an important document to be quoted without any hon. Members having access to it, without its being placed on the Table and without my hon. Friend the Member for Rother Valley (Mr. Barron) giving the House the benefit of reading it. I implore him to do that, as it is absolutely germane to the...
