Canlyniadau 181–200 o 1672 ar gyfer speaker:Peter Tapsell

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Iraq (15 Meh 2009)

Peter Tapsell: As a declared sceptic as early as November 1992 of the existence of the weapons of mass destruction, and as a subsequent opponent of the invasion of Iraq, may I put it to the Prime Minister that the disastrous effect of the war has been to make Iran the dominant power in the whole of the middle east? What the British people well understand is that after the capture of Baghdad, the political...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Inflation ( 9 Meh 2009)

Peter Tapsell: I had intended to congratulate the Chancellor on rising from his grave, but it appears that he is still lurking in the graveyard. May I ask when the Treasury plans to reverse the not very successful quantitative easing programme, in order to moderate inflationary expectations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 3 Meh 2009)

Peter Tapsell: May I put it to the Prime Minister that the problem of Members' allowances falls within the remit of Sir Christopher Kelly's committee, and should be left there until it reports? The right hon. Gentleman has hinted that he wishes to gain a reputation as a constitutionalist over the issue, so may I suggest to him that as he is almost uniquely unsuited to play the role of a latter-day Thomas...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Afghanistan and Pakistan (29 Ebr 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Bearing in mind that there are probably more potential international terrorists in Britain than in the Tora Bora mountains, may I nevertheless congratulate the Prime Minister, no doubt under the influence of the new American Administration, on at last moving away from the political and strategic follies of the last seven years, and on making a much more realistic assessment—that the war in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Lending to Business (28 Ebr 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Does the Chancellor agree that the objective of the announced programme of quantitative easing is to increase and facilitate lending by banks to businesses? The Bank of England has warned against another fiscal stimulus, so why is it proceeding with QE in such a half-hearted manner that it has actually raised the yields on gilts? It was also very slow to lower interest rates on the eve of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Persian Gulf (30 Maw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Will the Minister continue to bear it in mind that the main threat in the Persian gulf is that from land-based Iranian rockets, which are capable of threatening the passage of ships through the strait of Hormuz?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Credit Provision (26 Maw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Does the Chancellor agree that with the declining prospect of growth in the economy, the banks are faced with an inevitable deterioration in the quality of their loan books, so that far from increasing their loans to businesses, they are likely to be seeking the whole time to increase their capital? How will that problem be overcome?

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Iraq War Inquiry (25 Maw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Does the Foreign Secretary understand that the main interest of the country will be in the run-up to the war, because it is widely believed that in the summer of 2002 the then Prime Minister, Mr. Blair, and President Bush entered into a conspiracy to invade Iraq and spent the succeeding months until March 2003 manipulating public opinion, falsifying the intelligence information and deceiving...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Spring European Council (23 Maw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: On Second Reading of the Bank of England Bill in November 1997, the Prime Minister may remember that I strongly opposed the triangular regulation of our banks, which has proved such a disaster. In today's circumstances, facing as we are the danger of mass unemployment for years to come in this country and throughout Europe, may I repeat what I indicated before the pre-Budget report—that I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: G20 Finance Ministers' Meeting (16 Maw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Is the Chancellor working towards a pan-European banking regulatory regime, with statutory authority within the United Kingdom?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Icelandic Banks (Local Authority Finances) ( 3 Maw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: In the present political situation in Iceland, with whom are negotiations being held and what progress is being made to restore to local authorities, including the district council in my constituency, the substantial losses incurred as a result of having deposits with an Icelandic bank?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Freedom of Information Act 2000 (24 Chw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: I was one who opposed the invasion of Iraq and I put it to the right hon. Gentleman, who was Foreign Secretary before the invasion, that it would be illegal under international law to invade without a second resolution from the United Nations. But I have never been an enthusiast for the Freedom of Information Act, largely for reasons of the working of Cabinet government and collective...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Afghanistan (Troop Deployment) (23 Chw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: As President Karzai says that there is now no resting place for al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, as the head of MI5 says that our military presence there increases the danger of terrorism in Britain, and as the bombing of Pashtuns and their women and children greatly radicalises Pakistan, what is the continuing justification for sacrificing more British lives in this unwinnable war?

Sri Lanka: Afghanistan and Pakistan ( 5 Chw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: Any student of Afghanistan—the word "Taliban" translates into Pashto as "student of Islam"—will know that there are two permanently dominating factors. One is size, and the other is psychology. When the British Raj was seeking what in those days was called a "forward policy" on the North West Frontier, now called the tribal districts, the great Lord Salisbury, when he was Foreign...

Sri Lanka: Afghanistan and Pakistan ( 5 Chw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: The warlords, who run the place, are quite undemocratic. In the eight minutes available, I cannot make a proper speech on the matter—or any other subject. However, I will read out four answers that the new Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, gave when she appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the other day for her confirmation hearings, with Senator John Kerry putting...

Sri Lanka: Afghanistan and Pakistan ( 5 Chw 2009)

Peter Tapsell: I cannot give way again. I have only one minute—I am sorry. We should support Mr. Holbrooke, whom I know because we served on the Trilateral Commission for many years together. He is the ideal man for the job. He is as tough as any Afghan and very clever. We now have a new President of the United States, in whom I have tremendous confidence and for whom I have the greatest admiration, and I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Ion 2009)

Peter Tapsell: What is the sterling value of an ounce of gold today, and what was it when the Prime Minister started selling our gold reserves in July 1999?

Debate on the Address: Economy, Pensions and Welfare (15 Rha 2008)

Peter Tapsell: Under the 10-minute limit for speeches, one can really utter only a few soundbites, without giving any supporting arguments. I will save nine and a half minutes by saying that I agree with almost everything that the hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr. Cable) said, and that I am a regular reader and admirer of Mr. Bootle's articles in The Daily Telegraph. That saves a lot of argument. To be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: EU Council/Afghanistan, India and Pakistan (15 Rha 2008)

Peter Tapsell: May I remind the Prime Minister that several years and four Defence Secretaries ago—the first of whom, the right hon. Member for Ashfield (Mr. Hoon), is now sitting next to him—when we sent our first small contingent to Afghanistan, I warned that, as the Russians had found in the 1980s, 300,000 men would not be sufficient to achieve military victory in that country, and that the Pashtun...

Points of Order: Emergency Debate — Pre-Budget Report (26 Tach 2008)

Peter Tapsell: rose—
