Backbench Business: Channel 4 Relocation — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Stewart McDonald: Does the hon. Gentleman know that a Glasgow MP—one of my predecessors, the late Sir Teddy Taylor—appeared on the first ever edition of “Question Time”?

Grenfell Tower: Points of Order (19 Oct 2017)

Robert Halfon: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Yesterday, my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess) mentioned the sad passing away of Sir Teddy Taylor. I also bring to your attention the sad passing away over the summer of the former MP for Keighley, Mr Gary Waller. I mention it because he was president of the Harlow Conservative Association for a number of years, and he was also a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

David Amess: Does my right hon. Friend agree that with the death of Sir Teddy Taylor the country has lost an outstanding parliamentarian, a great constituency Member of Parliament and a true patriot? Does my right hon. Friend further agree that if Sir Teddy were alive today he would be delighted to learn that the outgoing Labour mayor of Southend, plus three unaligned councillors, have all joined the...

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Stewart McDonald: May I begin by putting on the record the great sadness of many of my constituents at the recent death of Sir Teddy Taylor, who served my constituency for 15 years? It is a privilege to represent his old stomping ground, where his name looms large to this day. During the recess, Mr Speaker, you visited two schools in my constituency, and I am quite sure that the young people there told you...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Paul Masterton: ...climb. This Government must remember that just as we on these Benches believe that anyone from any background can reach as far and high as their talents and efforts will take them, so too must we acknowledge anyone can fall on hard times. One of the giants of Scottish Conservatism, Teddy Taylor, coined the phrase “tenement Tories”. It meant something very simple—that...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Stewart McDonald: Despite my constituency producing two enormous Brexiteers—one Sir Teddy Taylor, who went on to represent Southend, and Tom Harris, who led the Brexit campaign in Scotland—I have the Glasgow constituency with the highest remain vote; it was over 70%. I get why lots of people did not feel that they had a connection with the European Union. It felt as though the EU did not have a...

Small Charitable Donations and Childcare Payments Bill (11 Oct 2016)

James Duddridge: ...a level of £60,000 or £80,000 to become a £1 million or £2 million fund. Even at that level, it considers itself small and has to do all its fund management via the Essex fund. My constituency predecessor, Sir Teddy Taylor, is involved in that fund. It deals with small charities, but I am not sure that it would be helped by the definition of small charities in the Bill....

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Stewart McDonald: ...reality that this Queen’s Speech was not for viewers in Scotland—so much so that the Scotland Secretary has been nowhere to be seen on the Front Bench? I think that even my predecessor, Sir Teddy Taylor, had more to say about Scotland. Perhaps my right hon. Friend could encourage the Prime Minister to tell us what new plans he has to embolden our national Parliament in Edinburgh.

Govia Thameslink and Network Rail — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (16 Mar 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I invite all Members who have taken part in this debate to come to my constituency to see the fantastic Cathcart circle, which is much loved, not only by Mr Harris but by another of my predecessors, Sir Teddy Taylor, who I understand opened Cathcart station when it was refurbished. The final thing I will do today is congratulate the hon. Member for Horsham (Jeremy Quin) on raising...

European Union Referendum Bill (9 Jun 2015)

Stewart McDonald: ...wish him, his wife Carolyn and their two children—and, indeed, his staff—all the very best for the future. As I have been advised to bring something for everyone, I should also note that one of my other predecessors, Sir Teddy Taylor, the last Tory MP in Glasgow, is still mentioned with much love in my constituency, not least because he attended to his duties with great...

Scottish Parliament: Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (23 Apr 2015)

Stewart Stevenson: a quality product. We can move forward to the reforms of the 1960s. Before then, there were one or two things to do with licensing in Scotland that we have totally forgotten about. For example, there was the veto poll. Teddy Taylor, the Tory MP for Cathcart for many years, was a very strong exponent of that. I think—subject to confirmation—that Cathcart was the last area in...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2014-15 (27 Nov 2014)

Roderick Campbell: ...Just over 50 years ago, The Sun emerged as a newspaper, in its pre-Murdoch phase, from the ashes of the Daily Herald, and a general election took place in October 1964 from which Labour emerged with a small majority, although Teddy Taylor managed to win Glasgow Cathcart for the Tories. A few months before then, the Succession (Scotland) Act 1964 was passed. It remains the definitive piece...

Education: Social Mobility — Motion to Take Note (13 Mar 2014)

Lord Graham of Edmonton:”. He hit me around the head. He said, “Tell the truth”. I said, “Mam, I am telling the truth”. What had happened is that two policemen had come into my classroom, whispered to the teacher and the teacher pointed out different people—Tommy, Willy, Wilfie, Charlie, Teddy. We all went out and we were all fitted with a pair of boots. Years later I...

Deep Sea Mining Bill (6 Sep 2013)

Philip Davies: ..., the legislation and the licensing. I hope he will make sure that this country is at the forefront in this field, and that he will help UK companies rather than hinder them—I am sure that is the case. Teddy Taylor is a great man and this House has a lot to be grateful to him for. I am sure that the point he made about the Foreign Office in the debate in 1981 is somewhat unfair,...

Scotland Bill: Committee (1st Day) (26 Jan 2012)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: It is a debatable point whether the achievement of getting rid of Teddy Taylor was better than getting rid of Jim Sillars. Perhaps we could discuss it outside.

[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — Sustainable Railways (12 Feb 2009)

Graham Stringer: .... It would be helpful, from the point of view of democratic accountability, as well as commercially, if we knew which companies were in trouble, and against which criteria. Just under 10 years ago I took part in a debate in the House with Teddy Taylor, who was then the Member of Parliament for Rochford and Southend, East. We were arguing about the original privatisation of the railway. My...

Orders of the Day: European Union (Amendment) Bill (21 Jan 2008)

Charles Kennedy: ...of the so-called night watchmen. Some are still with us, fellow survivors. I think of the hon. Member for Stone (Mr. Cash), who is sitting at the back of the Chamber now, and of others such as Sir Teddy Taylor, the up-and-coming young right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr. Duncan Smith), and Jonathan Aitken. The procedures of the House at the time meant that we sat...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [First Day] (6 Nov 2007)

Charles Kennedy: I was my party's spokesman on Europe at the time of Maastricht, when almost a year of my life—a night without end—was spent in this place. I recall the Conservative night-watchmen of the period: Jonathan Aitken, Teddy Taylor, the hon. Member for Stone (Mr. Cash), the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr. Duncan Smith). The roll of honour...

Orders of the Day: Adjournment (Summer Recess) (25 Jul 2006)

Bob Spink: ...achievement of a solution to the Cyprus problem. Finally, I always hoped that the UK would be able to retain its sovereignty in the EU and bring about root-and-branch reform from within, but I now accept that Sir Teddy Taylor was right all along and that I was wrong. Our rebate and national sovereignty are under threat, as waste and corruption increase in the EU as a result of the...

Cancer Services (1 Mar 2006)

James Duddridge: ...ago, and he bewildered me further. However, I understand that I have a few minutes to make some comments on the important matter of cancer, having already written off my career. My predecessor, Sir Teddy Taylor, introduced an Adjournment debate in February 2002 on the subject of cancer care in south Essex, supported by my good friend and colleague my hon. Friend the Member for Southend,...
