Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Direct Elections ( 7 Rha 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: On the basis of the last question, does the Minister agree that there are one or two other problems standing in the way of rapid progress towards free elections in Europe, other than the method of election? Are we not now the odd man out in being the only country that has not completed the necessary legislative process to hold the elections next year?

Business of the House (30 Meh 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Has the attention of the Leader of the House been drawn to the fact that there is another potentially very unpleasant industrial dispute in the South-West at Channing Wood Prison with pickets protesting outside the prison regarding a Home Office building contract? I do not want to press the matter or to make things more difficult today, but would the right hon. Gentleman convey to the...

European Community (Council of Ministers Meeting) (29 Meh 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: The right hon. Gentleman drew a distinction between a variable 50-miles limit and an exclusive 12-miles limit. Has he accepted the figure of 12 miles? In certain areas in the South-West it would make a considerable difference if, instead of saying 12 miles and accepting 12 miles, we had said 15 miles or even 20 miles. Has he already conceded that 12 miles is it? Whatever figure he has...

Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (16 Meh 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Will the Prime Minister say a word about the Seychelles? Why were no representatives of a Government who were on a "one man, one vote" majority, a system which is so beloved by the present Government, not represented in any way at the Commonwealth conference? The Seychelles Government were elected by a 66 per cent. majority only a few months ago. Will the Prime Minister bring up to date his...

Northern Ireland ( 5 Mai 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: The Minister's opening remarks reported, rather refreshingly, that during the first two days and on this third day things were getting better for people going to work. He also said that unfortunately, on the other side of the coin, during the first two days intimidation and threats grew. Are they continuing to grow, or is there a welcome sign that this counter-trend is not going on and that...

MR. Agee and MR. Hosenball ( 3 Mai 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Two distinct themes are running through the debate. It is important to distinguish one from the other. The first theme is that the law is bad as it stands and should be altered. I have some sympathy with that view. In 1971 I said that it was difficult to mix up the judicial process with the executive, political process. This type of case was bound to arise. The theme of the speech by the...

MR. Agee and MR. Hosenball ( 3 Mai 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: The hon. Member always does this. We are quite used to the fact that he never dares to get to his feet but just keeps to his seat and interrupts others. [HON. MEMBERS: "Perhaps he cannot."] For quite a lot of the day he cannot.

MR. Agee and MR. Hosenball ( 3 Mai 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: I shall not give way. There is plenty of time for the hon. Gentleman to make a speech if he wants to do so. He at least does that, and says what he wants to say. I conclude by repeating that in a situation such as this, I should have thought that wherever we sit in the House and whatever our political views, we would realise that, within the law, the Home Secretary has done the only...

Airborne Early Warning (31 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: I appreciate that the Secretary of State had no alternative other than to take the decision that he has in the interests of national security and I welcome the support that he has received from quarters not normally associated with supporting him on defence matters. Will he now confirm that the best thing we could do, in addition to making this aircraft available to ourselves, would be to...

Orders of the Day — Defence (28 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Could the hon. Gentleman say how much more his Government had in mind when last December they signed a solemn document saying that there would have to be very large increases in defence spending in real terms by this country, among others? Would the hon. Gentleman give us a figure as to what his colleague had in mind when he signed that document?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Warsaw Pact Forces (22 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Figures have already been published indicating that the Soviet Union is spending between 12 per cent. and 14 per cent. of its GDP on defence. Are there any comparable per capita figures within the Soviet Union? If the right hon. Gentleman cannot give me those figures, what is the absolute sum, in comparable terms, that is being spent—GDP always being a misleading figure?

Defence (22 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: I apologise in advance if I am raising something to which the Secretary of State will be referring later. I hope that, before he concludes his remarks on the Armed Forces generally, he will say something about the Territorial Army, which, although it is much fewer in numbers, still makes a valuable contribution and feels rather neglected in this kind of review.

Defence (22 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Tempting though it is, I shall resist the temptation to wander back into the question of who was responsible for what during the 1930s, although I am sure that I would be able to stand up against any suggestions as to the allocation of blame. I should like to come a little more up to date and deal with an intervention during the last speech with regard to what NATO was able to do to help...

Defence (22 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: I did not say anything of the sort. I said that a future Conservative Government would engage an amount of defence expenditure to provide the capability to defend ourselves against whatever the threat is. I am sorry, but I assumed the hon. Gentleman was not going to speak. He can hardly blame me, because he is in rather rare company in rising to his feet to make a speech this afternoon....

Defence (22 Maw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: I hope that before the hon. Gentleman leaves that argument he will cover the point that I raised—that the level of expenditure which any Government have to take into account should correspond with the size of the threat. It has been the common belief among Ministers in three White Papers that the threat has increased and is still increasing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Recruitment (22 Chw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Do the Minister's remarks in this context apply to the TAVR? I do not need to remind him that in many parts of the country the force is well below the establishment fixed by the Government, and that more rather than less recruitment is needed.

Business of the House (17 Chw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Leaving aside the announcement about the guillotine, has the attention of the Leader of the House been drawn to the report that today the Irish Republic has announced its own unilateral 50-mile fishing limit? Does he accept that this has an impact on British fishing limits? Will the right hon. Gentleman look at this and see that a statement is made, because the situation is causing...

Bill Presented: Rhodesia (Schoolchildren) ( 3 Chw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: I am glad that my hon. Friend has recalled that situation. I was in Greece in another capacity at the time. Thousands of children were abducted. The then Labour Government, between 1947 and 1949, robustly condemned what happened and did not seek to equivocate as to what might or might not have happened.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Chile ( 2 Chw 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Has the hon. Gentleman undertaken a comparative study of the extent of the observance of human rights and issues of visas in Chile and certain countries behind the Iron Curtain, including Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union? If not, will he do so?

Orders of the Day — Defence (12 Ion 1977)

Mr Frederic Bennett: Although during the last two speeches a number of important propositions and appraisals have been made, we seem to have gone astray a little from what I would call the fundamentals of the debate today—that is basically, in my appreciation at least, whether the latest round of cuts suggested have put us into a dangerous position or have endangered our security. That is a matter on which we...
