Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Mai 1987)

Mr David Crouch: On a serious note, may I say to my right hon. Friend how much my constituents and many others appreciated her presence in Canterbury cathedral last month on the occasion of the memorial service to those who died in the Herald of Free Enterprise? On that occasion I had the honour of sitting beside my right hon. Friend. I have not had that distinction in this place. If I were returning here...

Soviet Union (Prime Minister's Visit) ( 2 Ebr 1987)

Mr David Crouch: As one who also sought to raise the question of human rights with General Secretary Gorbachev last year, may I say to my right hon. Friend how much I admired the way she did so this time, emphasising the importance that we attach to this question without at the same time making it an absolute barrier to achieving a first step towards reducing the nuclear balance between East and West?

Higher Education and Research ( 1 Ebr 1987)

Mr David Crouch: May I thank my right hon. Friend for the extra £15 million that he has announced for research for the civil science Vote? In doing so he has proved once again that he is a listening Minister and that it is worth while for Back Benchers occasionally to make speeches in the small hours of the morning advocating a change in Government policy. We thank him very much.

Orders of the Day — Pilotage Bill [Lords] (30 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I echo the words of my hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Test (Mr. Hill) on the quality of contributions in the debate. I was immensely impressed by the speeches of my hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr. Thornton) and of the hon. Member for Wigan (Mr. Stott), who spoke from real knowledge of the sea. My hon. Friend the Member for Falmouth and Camborne (Mr. Mudd) spoke movingly from...

Orders of the Day — Pilotage Bill [Lords] (30 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: We are surrounded by water.

Orders of the Day — Pilotage Bill [Lords] (30 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I do not follow the hon. Gentleman's great concern about the possible harm to coastal trade and traffic. The small port of Whitstable in my constituency will be a competent harbour authority. Coastal traffic from Cornwall to Whitstable brings granite to be broken in quarry or sand and gravel operations at Whitstable. It is dependent on two vessels of 400 to 500 tonnes coming from Cornwall...

Orders of the Day — Research Councils (24 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: It is not a question of the research councils being frustrated, but rather that the Government have the symmetry wrong between the university pay awards and the pay for those who work in units, in universities on 'research council work. The letter that I received from the Secretary of State on 5 March on university academic pay stated: Today the Government accepted the proposals for the pay...

Orders of the Day — Research Councils (24 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: It is a pleasure to hear the new hon. Member for Truro (Mr. Taylor) make his second speech. I am sorry that I missed his maiden speech. He will know that the second speech and the third, fourth, fifth and all those after that will not be treated in the same generous way as his maiden speech was undoubtedly treated. However, I am pleased to hear him make a contribution to a scientific debate....

Orders of the Day — Research Councils (24 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: Yes, to a certain extent I agree that that is true. The Medical Research Council will not cut work in its own units or existing programme grants, but it will be forced to cut future project grants, as I have said. That will mean that new work in the universities and medical schools which we are looking forward to will very largely cease if we cannot get the Government to recognise the...

The Arts (12 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I was intrigued to hear about the lunch conversation that the hon. Member for Cambridgeshire, North-East (Mr. Freud) had with my friend Lord Goodman. I was further intrigued by the advice that he gave to be passed on to my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister about thunderbolts and insurance. Today, I lunched with no fewer than seven bishops, including the Bishop of Durham—I have not taken...

The Arts (12 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: —in television and in the art of photography. We have helped ourselves a lot in the process. We have earned respect, we entertain our visitors, we entertain ourselves, we earn currency and we pay the Government a lot in taxes. We put too much tax on those who attend theatrical performances. We pay a good return to the Government by attracting visitors to Britain, and pay a good return in...

The Arts (12 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I shall treat the House to a little anecdote. After my lunch with the bishops I joined the chairman of a great publishing house, Collins, together with the chairman of another great publishing house, Navostiof Moscow. They were celebrating an initiative for 100 photographers to go to the Soviet Union. On 15 May those 100 photographers, in the 15 states of the Soviet Union, will be taking...

The Arts (12 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: The hon. Gentleman has always shown an interest in the theatre and in the Lyceum, but he was not successful in bringing that about and it was a dance hall until it closed. Admittedly, having dances there did at least keep the rain out because the building was kept in reasonable condition, but it was not used as a theatre, except for one brief moment when "The Mysteries" was transferred by a...

The Arts (12 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I agree and I am glad that my hon. Friend mentioned that. It is a wonderful project and it shows just how lively interest in the theatre still is. We have not forgotten our heritage and the need to sustain it. I take my hat off to the great Canadian, Ed Mirvish, who saved the Old Vic. He did a great job there. I used to spend days there. I can remember paying Is 6d for the gallery to see...

Business of the House ( 5 Maw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: In view of the difficulties that have recently arisen about showing video films in the precincts of the House, may I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the fact that I am proposing to show next week a revealing film produced by the Soviet authorities of the recent visit paid to the Soviet Union by the Inter-Parliamentary Union? That group was led by my noble Friend Lord Whitelaw and the...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Pay and Conditions Bill: Advisory Committee on School Teachers' Pay and Conditions (26 Chw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: This is the first time that I have attempted to speak on this important measure. It is not a Bill that I like much, but I voted for it. That is the part that I have played so far, I do not like the Bill because I do not like having to take such measures. The right hon. Member for Halton (Mr. Oakes) spoke of 400,000 teachers being put at a disadvantage. I voted for the Bill that I do not like...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Pay and Conditions Bill: Advisory Committee on School Teachers' Pay and Conditions (26 Chw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I do not think that you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, would allow me to digress on St. Thomas a Becket, but perhaps there will be another occasion when I can draw attention to the difficulties that he encountered with the monarch of that time.

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Pay and Conditions Bill: Advisory Committee on School Teachers' Pay and Conditions (26 Chw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: No, I am not. I shall even take advice from the hon. Gentleman and not try to delay the House. Let us proceed, because it is important that the Bill should be put on the statute book as a temporary measure. "Interim" is the key word. I stressed that this afternoon to teachers from my constituency. Unlike the hon. Member for Yeovil, I am not suspicious about my right hon. Friend's intentions....

Orders of the Day — British Railways Bill (By Order) (16 Chw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: My point is that Mr. Todd and his brother who own Whitehall farm will receive a compulsory purchase order for the land that British Rail takes from their farm and should receive compensation for the fact that their farm is no longer viable by being cut in half by these railway works.

Orders of the Day — British Railways Bill (By Order) (16 Chw 1987)

Mr David Crouch: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for New Forest (Mr. McNair-Wilson) for having introduced the Bill. As he said, it is a sort of routine measure and a general purpose Bill for British Rail and it should do us no harm. The proposals in clauses 5 and 6, which concern my constituency, are improvements on two relatively old lines in the British Rail system, but to say that they would do...
