Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local Government Reform (19 Jun 1991)

George Galloway: Can the deputy governor explain why the Government are prepared to turn the world upside down in order to put talks together in Northern Ireland about devolution of power to the people there? Why is devolution good enough for the people of Ulster, but not good enough, or too good, for the people of Scotland? The House deserves an explanation.

Yugoslavia (14 Oct 1991)

George Galloway: As everyone says, it appears to be true that Yugoslavia is finished. The more that some of us look at it, the more of a bloody pity that seems to be. In all of the Government's dealings in the matter, will they bear it in mind that the issue is not only the fight between Serbia and Croatia or Slovenia but that there are many nationalities in Yugoslavia whose rights and interests must be...

Defence: First Day (14 Oct 1991)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Is it in order—[HON. MEMBERS: "Sit down."' Why not listen to what I have to say? Is it in order, Madam Deputy Speaker, for the Secretary of State to give way persistently to Conservative Members, yet flinch in the face of the cold steel of the intervention of my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Springburn (Mr. Martin)?

Defence: First Day (14 Oct 1991)

George Galloway: The Secretary of State took a long time to shed a lot more heat than light on the thinking behind the decisions that we are debating. If I had the time, I should like to travel down several avenues of strategy, one of which was dealt with by my hon. Friend the Member for Clackmannan (Mr. O'Neill) when he asked why, at a time of what is, according to the Secretary of State, a greatly reduced...

Defence: First Day (14 Oct 1991)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The Minister's speech has nothing to do with the debate that the rest of us have sat through for four hours. We have had 10 minutes on low flying and 10 minutes on the citizens charter. Will the Minister address himself to the subject of tonight's debate?

Business of the House (7 Nov 1991)

George Galloway: May I draw the attention of the Leader of the House to early-day motions Nos. 46 and 47?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Government (13 Nov 1991)

George Galloway: Now that the Government's risible rump of 10 Scottish Members of Parliament has been reduced to the nefarious nine, and now that the Secretary of State for Scotland arid virtually every one of that nefarious nine trembles on the edge of the abyss of a total political wipeout in Scotland, will the Government finally see the sense of coming to the negotiating table and talking about Scottish...

Prayers: Citizens Charter (15 Nov 1991)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Have you received any notification from the Government of their wish to make a statement about the extraordinary new revelations in The Guardian this morning about the bizarre and mysterious death of Robert Maxwell, a former Member of Parliament? Around the world, speculation is mounting about the theory that Mr. Maxwell may have been murdered, for the...

George Galloway: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Prayers: Citizens Charter (15 Nov 1991)

George Galloway: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way so early in his speech. Does not the concept of a citizen imply the existence of a society? Did not the former Prime Minister memorably state that there was no such thing as society, only individuals?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Baltic States (20 Nov 1991)

George Galloway: Coming from the party that went to Munich to betray Czechoslovakia—[Interruption.] I find the recourse to a 20-year-old smear by the Foreign Office Minister most unseemly. It might have something to do with the forthcoming general election when any smear will do. Since the Minister is so concerned about the gold belonging to the Baltic states, will he see justice done for the poorest...

George Galloway: The Albanians in Yugoslavia are not a minority population, but the third largest national group in the country; there are more than 3 million of them, but their national rights have long been abolished by the Yugoslavian Government. The Minister must know that if Croatia and Slovenia are allowed to become internationally recognised next month, the Albanian population—and Albania itself,...

Type 23 Frigates (23 Jan 1992)

George Galloway: As Yarrow is the flagship in my constituency and the biggest private employer in the whole of Glasgow, I hope that the Secretary of State will accept my sense of relief and—yes—gratitude that the Ministry has made that decision today. I am also grateful for the Secretary of State's confirmation that the order was won on merit and is a testament to the ability and dedication of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq (5 Feb 1992)

George Galloway: According to Mordechai Vanunu, who is serving 18 years in solitary confinement, Israel has more than 200 nuclear warheads capable of reaching even the Soviet Union. Why is Israel allowed to have nuclear weapons—the same abuse of international treaties—but Iraq is not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: International Meetings (4 Mar 1992)

George Galloway: When the Foreign Secretary visits the Group of Seven summit in the summer, will he bang some heads together to try to bring forward a new deal for the third world?
