Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Compulsory Purchase (Lists of Properties) (17 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: will the hon. Gentleman ask his right hon. Friend to link the review of compulsory purchase law with a review of planning blight, as there are many constituents of mine in the Chorlton-on-Medlock area of Manchester who are suffering grave inconvenience, not only from necessary building operations which are taking place next door to where they live, but also because they fear that because of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Northern Ireland (18 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that, whatever necessary action is taken by British troops in this very serious situation, there will be no infringement of the rule of law and the rights and liberties of the subject, as took place during the weekend of 3rd to 5th July last year?

Prayers: Northern Region (Economic Situation) (19 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: rose—

Prayers: Northern Region (Economic Situation) (19 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: As it was stated in a Written Answer the other day that the saving on investment allowances over investment grants would be £65 million a year, could the right hon. Gentleman say how much more will be spent in the Northern Region per annum as a result of the Government's measures?

Prayers: Hare Coursing (Abolition) Bill (19 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order. I understand, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that it is the custom, when an objection is taken to a Bill, for the OFFICIAL REPORT tO record it by simply stating "HON. MEMBERS: 'Object.'" Could you direct the names of the hon. Members who have objected to the Second Reading of this Bill to be recorded in HANSARD so that the supporters of the Conservative Party who wish this Measure...

Bills Presented: Television Programme Contractors (Levy Payments) (23 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I do not quarrel with the hon. Gentleman about diversification by independent television companies, whether financially they are doing well or badly. All companies, of whatever kind, should have the right to diversify. But does not the hon. Gentleman agree that therefore it is folly of the Government to attempt to prevent the National Coal Board, for example, from diversifying?

Bills Presented: Television Programme Contractors (Levy Payments) (23 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I should first declare an interest as a member of the National Union of Journalists. I take very seriously the necessity for the continued employment of journalists, and I believe that that is relevant to the Order. With all the shortcomings of independent television to which my hon. Friend the Member for Derby, North (Mr. Whitehead) referred, it is right that this grant of money should be...

Bills Presented: Television Programme Contractors (Levy Payments) (23 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: That is so only if one believes that there should be no taxation or any kind. At the moment there is taxation, and the State has a right to decide how the money it has taken in tax should be dispensed. Having back £10 million is a grant to those who receive it. It is right that this money should be given to the independent television companies. I hope, since it is happening in this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Regional Economic Planning Boards (25 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the hon. Gentleman consult the North-West Development Association about the gravely deteriorating and disturbing rate of unemployment in the North-West, which in the past year has overtaken both Yorkshire and Humberside and the South-West in the unemployment league? Will he give assurances about and examples of the efforts of the Government to encourage employment prospects in the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (25 Feb 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Third London Airport (1 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order. I rise to ask, Mr. Speaker, if there is any protection that can be afforded to Members of this House against the relentless volume of propaganda which is being showered upon us by those who oppose the siting of an airport at Cublington. The propaganda is couched in terms which demand that Members of the House make speeches in the House although the propagandists may not...

Clause 19: Application of Security Provisions to Companies Established in Connec Tion with Agreement on Gas Centrifuge Process (2 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Does my hon. Friend agree that it goes further than that? The Under-Secretary introduced the Iron Castings Order a week or two ago in a most cursory—

Clause 19: Application of Security Provisions to Companies Established in Connec Tion with Agreement on Gas Centrifuge Process (2 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: —and, as my hon. Friend the Member for Northfield says, cavalier fashion. Tonight the hon. Gentleman spoke for about two minutes when introducing the Amendment. Does the hon. Gentleman think that this place is a rubber stamp? No doubt he wishes that it were.

Clause 19: Pension Schemes (2 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: The Under-Secretary of State says, with some validity—and I shall not join my right hon. and hon. Friends in the Lobby on the Amendment—that the trade union concerned put forward a valid point of view and that we should take its advice. Yet for several weeks now we have been forced through the Division Lobbies night after night in defence of the liberties of the trade unions.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Secondary School Children (Maintenance Grants) (4 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the right hon. Lady provide for mandatory grants not only for secondary school children but also for primary school children, to compensate for the vicious increases in school meal charges which, according to the Conservative Chairman of the Manchester Education Committee, will prevent 4,005 Manchester children from having school meals?

Business of the House (4 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Does the Order to be debated on Monday night relate to the increase in the cost of school meals? If so, will the right hon. Gentleman take it that the people of Manchester will regard as thoroughly unsatisfactory a debate lasting only one and a half hours on a Measure which is preventing 4,000 children in Manchester from continuing with school meals?

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Unfairly Inducing Dismissal (23 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: (seated and covered): On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Further to the Ruling you have just given about hon. Members not reading books or newspapers, may I drew your attention to the hon. Member for Epping (Mr. Tebbit), who is reading a magazine.

Business Statements (Questions): Adjournment (Easter) (25 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I submit that this House ought not to adjourn for the Easter Recess until the Foreign Secretary recalls the Earl of Cromer, Her Majesty's Ambassador to Washington. The representation of this country in the key capital of the Western world and perhaps the most important capital in the world has now become a major scandal. The Earl of Cromer's fashion and, if I may say so, the Countess of...

Business Statements (Questions): Adjournment (Easter) (25 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I take the point, Mr. Speaker. I know that you will keep me in order if I stray beyond it, but I will do my best not to. When and before Lord Cromer was appointed Ambassador, we knew that he was a committed supporter of the Conservative Party. Indeed, his comportment of office as Governor of the Bank of England under the Labour Government was to try to undermine that Government; indeed, he...

Business Statements (Questions): Adjournment (Easter) (25 Mar 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I am delighted that hon. Members opposite cheer those words. It is natural that they should do so. It was, after all, a partisan Tory speech. These are Conservative Party sentiments. They are not the sentiments of the people of Britain. He went on: The country as a whole is beginning to grasp that the mere granting of more money to those who combine to exploit their demands…without regard...
