Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Afghanistan (13 Rha 2010)

Peter Tapsell: May I ask my right hon. Friend, the sixth successive Defence Minister to whom I have pointed out the utter folly of our current intervention in Afghanistan-four of the quintet before him have wisely fled the House, and the first has just been banned from the Tea Room for five years-to whom he thinks the Afghan security force, which has been recruited from various tribes who have been bitterly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: G20 Summit (15 Tach 2010)

Peter Tapsell: Did the G20 discuss the situation of the Irish banks which, because of the potential knock-on effects, could pose as great a threat to the world economy as did Lehman Brothers, AIG and Goldman Sachs in September 2008? If so, what view did the Prime Minister's colleagues take of Chancellor Merkel's stated determination not to allow her taxpayers to bail out the gamblers who made great fortunes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Treaties ( 9 Tach 2010)

Peter Tapsell: Now that the German Chancellor is insisting on the amendment of European treaties, including Lisbon, will there ever be a better opportunity for Britain to renegotiate its relationships with the European Union and seek the repatriation of powers abandoned by previous Governments, or is that vetoed by the Lib Dem members of the coalition?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Defence Treaties (France) ( 2 Tach 2010)

Peter Tapsell: As I am married to a French woman, I have some experience of the unpredictability of Anglo-French relations, so may I take the Secretary of State back to the run-up to the Iraq war, when President Bush and Mr Tony Blair were hell-bent on invading Iraq but President Chirac took a different view-actually, the correct view? If, in the future, there are diversions in British and French policy on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Council ( 1 Tach 2010)

Peter Tapsell: As it appears that the treaties of the European Union can be changed on the insistence of a German Chancellor, is it possible to give a British Prime Minister the same opportunities, thus enabling him to give his country the pledge of the referendum that was promised to them? Is that so, or not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Afghanistan (27 Hyd 2010)

Peter Tapsell: I thank my right hon. Friend for his clear statement. He started by saying that the object of the statement was to look back at our original objectives and to see how far they had been achieved. May I remind him-not that he needs reminding-that those objectives were to defeat the Taliban, to abolish the poppy industry, to get rid of corruption in government, to get the girls safely back to...

Speaker's Statement: New Clause 7 — Variation in limit of number of holders of Ministerial offices (25 Hyd 2010)

Peter Tapsell: I wish to speak in support of new clause 7, which was so ably introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Broxbourne (Mr Walker), and to comment on the related issues of the number of MPs and the number of Ministers with which it deals. Paragraph 24 of the coalition programme for government, the contents of which we are, in part, debating today, starts with the words: "The Government...

Speaker's Statement: New Clause 7 — Variation in limit of number of holders of Ministerial offices (25 Hyd 2010)

Peter Tapsell: It is very interesting-even if incomprehensible to me. I make the point in passing that Scotland has gained even more than Britain from the combination of our two countries since the Act of Union.

Speaker's Statement: New Clause 7 — Variation in limit of number of holders of Ministerial offices (25 Hyd 2010)

Peter Tapsell: Curiously enough, I shall come to the question of the Irish Republic a little later in my remarks, if the hon. Gentleman will bear with me. Although by 2000 the total number of MPs involved in Government had already gone up from 42 in 1900 to 129, the number of Cabinet Ministers has not greatly increased. It is the number of loyal, but little known and easily sackable bag carriers that has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Strategic Defence and Security Review (19 Hyd 2010)

Peter Tapsell: Does the Prime Minister understand that many will view with great concern the decision to postpone the vital decisions on the future of the Trident nuclear deterrent until 2016-after the general election, when, for all we know, Lib Dem Ministers may still be there in Cabinet and, having been lifelong opponents of the nuclear deterrent, will continue to try to veto it, so that this decision...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Debt Management (Bank of England) (12 Hyd 2010)

Peter Tapsell: I am a strong supporter of quantitative easing as a form of management of the economy, but are Treasury Ministers aware that some hedge funds are making large profits by arbitraging between short and long interest rates when central banks give advance notice of their intention to intervene in foreign markets?

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Peter Tapsell: May I put to the right hon. Gentleman an historical example of how the Bill would have created great problems in the past? In 1950, the Labour party won the general election with-if my memory is correct-an overall parliamentary majority of seven. That entitled a Labour Government to stay in power for five years. They were never defeated on a motion of confidence in that Parliament, but by...

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Peter Tapsell: The right hon. Gentleman has just made a statement that the Prime Minister has made on a number of occasions-that he is giving away a power that no previous Prime Minister has chosen to do. Why do the right hon. Gentleman and our Prime Minister think that they are wiser than their 40 predecessors?

Fixed-term Parliaments Bill (13 Med 2010)

Peter Tapsell: Before my right hon. Friend moves on to his next point, can he explain why, when he is putting forward a Bill of the most enormous constitutional importance, almost revolutionary in concept, there is not a single Conservative Cabinet Minister on the Front Bench to support him?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Kabul International Conference (13 Med 2010)

Peter Tapsell: Why did British Ministers choose to ignore the advice given to them on Afghanistan by our exceptionally distinguished former ambassador to Kabul, as a result of which he has asked to be transferred to other duties?

Business of the House (22 Gor 2010)

Peter Tapsell: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.
