Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill (11 Maw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: I asked Harold Macmillan what the secret was of making a good speech in the House of Commons and he said, “I once asked David Lloyd George that very question and the answer I got was, ‘Don’t say anything interesting or important in the first five minutes of your speech—just wait for the Chamber to fill.” I am not sure that that will happen this afternoon, which is a pity because I...

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill (11 Maw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: Yes, they were. The American banks turned mortgages for people who could not afford to pay the interest into derivatives disguised as bonds and then sold packets of them—500 or so—all over the world. They could not have done that under Glass-Steagall. That really makes the point, so perhaps I ought to sit down now.

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill (11 Maw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: In the 1997 debate, I strongly opposed the establishment of the FSA, with its tripartite regulatory structure. I predicted it would be an absolute disaster, and it has been.

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill (11 Maw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: I opposed it, if I remember correctly, because I said that if the Treasury, the Bank of England and the FSA were all involved in regulation, they would all be quarrelling with each other and passing responsibility on to the other two when things went wrong. Those, I think, were almost the exact words I used, and that is exactly what happened.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Syria: anti-Government Forces ( 4 Maw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: May I put it to the Minister, as I have on previous occasions to the Foreign Secretary, that the carnage in Syria is a manifestation of the 1,500-year religious civil war between Sunni and Shi’a that is now resurgent in Iraq and Pakistan, and elsewhere in the Islamic world? The only way to stop it in Syria is to persuade Saudi Arabia and Qatar on the one hand, and Iran on the other, to stop...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Chw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: Has my right hon. Friend noticed that since—in common with the United States and Japan—we lost our triple A status, the cost of our international borrowing has actually fallen?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mortality Indicators (26 Chw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: In supporting the points that have just been made by my hon. Friend the Member for Lincoln (Karl McCartney), may I tell the Minister that, as he might expect, there is considerable anxiety among my Lincolnshire constituents over the fact that the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust has a higher than average mortality rate? Will he tell us when the promised review of the situation will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Chw 2013)

Peter Tapsell: With Japan, the eurozone and Switzerland all talking down their currencies, despite the statement by the G7 yesterday, does my right hon. Friend agree that the most important aim of the G20 meeting in Moscow this coming weekend should be to establish means to prevent competitive devaluation, which in the 1930s—[Interruption.] I was alive in the 1930s—as I can remember from my father’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: As my right hon. Friend sets forth on his pacific mission to Algeria, will he, with his great historical knowledge, bear in mind that when Louis Philippe sent his eldest son to Algeria in the 1840s on a similar venture, it took a century, massive casualties, the overthrow of the Third Republic and the genius of General de Gaulle to get the French army back out of the north African desert?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Deployment to Mali (29 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: May I repeat to my right hon. Friend what I said unavailingly to his five Labour predecessors as Defence Secretary that the more frequently western forces intervene in Muslim countries, the greater will be the spread of jihadism throughout the whole Islamic world and the higher the threat of terrorism in this country?

Succession to the Crown Bill: New Clause 1 — Removal of disqualification arising from faith (28 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: I always listen to my hon. Friend with great admiration on these and all other matters, as I did his father, but on his interesting suggestions on a regency, and in connection with the fact that Her Majesty is one of the two rulers who are anointed, how does his regency proposal deal with the problem of the coronation oath, in which the sovereign very specifically must declare that she will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Tensions in the East and South China Seas (22 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the dispute about the Senkaku islands cannot be regarded as just a regional issue, because of the United States’ commitment to defend both Japan and Taiwan, although the legal position of the islands is not so clear? As it is reported that the Chinese are massing missiles on the coast of the East China sea capable of hitting Japan, we could be facing a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 9 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: Bearing in mind that Bills that might be thought to affect the royal prerogative require the signification of the Queen on Second Reading, will the Prime Minister tell us whether he has yet heard from the palace whether it regards any of the major constitutional changes proposed in the Succession to the Crown Bill as intruding either on the royal prerogative or the coronation oath that Her...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions ( 8 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: Why is the fact that an Act has been in existence for more than 300 years an argument for amending it, together with the Bill of Rights and the Act of Union with Scotland, in a single day? I would have thought the argument was very much in the opposite direction.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Serious Fraud Office (Senior Staff) ( 8 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: While we are on the subject of the efficiency of the Serious Fraud Office, may I ask the Attorney-General how it is that, despite the appalling behaviour of some bank staff in some British banks and the enormous fines that have been imposed on those banks by the regulatory authorities in both New York and London, no senior banker in this country has yet been prosecuted for complicity in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Serious Fraud Office (Senior Staff) ( 8 Ion 2013)

Peter Tapsell: I withdraw the word “criminal” and insert the word “fraudulent” instead.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria ( 4 Rha 2012)

Peter Tapsell: I welcome the Foreign Secretary’s statement a few minutes ago that he will shortly have further discussions with Russia. How will he respond if the Russians make it clear that they are not going to allow a western-backed Sunni rebellion to overthrow the Alawite regime?

Bill Presented — Energy Bill: Leveson Inquiry (29 Tach 2012)

Peter Tapsell: Did Lord Justice Leveson make any comments on the proprietorship of newspapers? Surely, one factor in the depression of press standards is that some owners of national newspapers have been bad men and sometimes foreigners with an ingrained hostility towards Britain, and their editors know that they can only keep their jobs by achieving the required levels of readership and advertising revenue...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Bank of England (26 Tach 2012)

Peter Tapsell: My right hon. Friend, if I understood him aright, has just said that Dr Carney supports the ring-fencing arrangements recommended in the Vickers report. May I ask him to bear in mind that Sir Mervyn King made it clear last week that he does not support them and nor do Mr Paul Volcker and the Archbishop of Canterbury-select? And nor do I.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Middle East (20 Tach 2012)

Peter Tapsell: In view of the increasing gravity of the situation in the middle east, will my right hon. Friend ask the Leader of the House and Mr Speaker whether they will arrange a full-scale parliamentary debate on the middle east in prime time next week, with time limits on Back-Bench speeches of not less than 15 minutes, so that we can have a proper Back-Bench debate and not a series of soundbites?
