Debate on the Address (29 Oct 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: "Another maiden speech", I thought I heard my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Mr. Cryer) murmur. I understand that it is a custom of the House to mention by name one's predecessor. I follow that hallowed custom and name my predecessor, who was Mr. Tom Boardman, perhaps a name not unknown to the House and throughout the country. He was also well known as one of the leading lights of the...

Orders of the Day — General Rate Bill (7 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I was fortunate enough to catch Mr. Deputy Speaker's eye last Tuesday, so that I have made my maiden speech, but I still crave the indulgence of the House in case on occasions my inexperience shows through. I listened with interest and some sympathy to the views of the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi), but I utterly dissociate myself from his general politics. I have been active in...

Orders of the Day — General Rate Bill (7 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I said that my arithmetic left something to be desired. Be that as it may, it is naive for the Opposition to pretend that in our difficult economic situation they would have transferred that burden of £1,000 million from the local ratepayer to the income tax payer.

Orders of the Day — General Rate Bill (7 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am not suggesting that. I am suggesting that the Conservative Party during the recent election was trying to bribe the electorate. I hope to deal with the point raised by the hon. Gentleman later in my speech. My experience in local government has given me a deep belief in its ability to work for the common good. Local government is responsible for about 30 per cent. of total expenditure....

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (15 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware that if two students are living separately they receive an aggregate income of £1,210, but that if they enter into the state of matrimonial bliss their combined income is reduced by about £250. That seems to be a large price to pay for not living in sin.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (15 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I wish to direct my few remarks to Clauses 1 and 2 of the Bill. There seems to be a fair degree of unanimity about the virtues implicit in Clause 3, as indicated by the degree of agreement between my hon. Friends and hon. Members opposite who have already spoken. I gather that one of my hon. Friends indicates some slight discord, and I assume that he will express his feeling later in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Polytechnics (Control) (19 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will propose to establish an independent polytechnic grants committee, thus removing these institutions of higher education from the control of local education authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Polytechnics (Control) (19 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the policy difficulties and differences now becoming apparent between certain polytechnics and their local education authorities? Will he ensure that those differences of opinion do not adversely affect the future well-being and development of those polytechnics?

Hospital Services (Leicestershire) (20 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I, too, thank the lion Member for Harborough (Mr. Farr) for allowing hon. Members on both sides of the House to join in the debate. I am the junior Member for Leicester and Leicestershire.

Hospital Services (Leicestershire) (20 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I was aware of the difficulties that we were facing in the city before my election. There was a recent meeting between the local branch of the British Medical Association and local Members of Parliament, at which I was present. I was appalled when I saw the allocations which had been made by the former Sheffield Regional Hospital Board to the Leicester area. I say with diffidence, having...

Knitting Machinery (20 Dec 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: It is indicative of the serious situation facing the textile industry in Leicester that I, with my hon. Friends who represent Leicester constituencies, thought it necessary to bring its difficulties to the attention of Parliament and the country. Most people know that Leicester is famed as a prosperous city. I should hasten to add that it acquired that reputation during the 1930s and that it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Electricity and Gas Prices (20 Jan 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is my hon. Friend aware that many small and poor consumers would prefer to pay for their gas and electricity as they use them through the prepayment machines to which he referred earlier? Is he aware also that there is a long delay in the provision of these meters by the electricity and gas boards? Will he bring pressure to bear on the boards to expedite the provision of these prepayment machines?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Education (Standards) (27 Jan 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers (4 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many newly qualified teachers he expects will seek to enter the profession in 1975–76; and if he is satisfied that they will be recruited, in view of the planned reductions in the year 1975–76.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers (4 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: I thank my right hon. Friend for his reply. Is he aware of the great public disquiet which has arisen in Leicestershire at the county council's decision or proposal to reduce its 1975–76 education budget by £4 million? This will mean that as a direct consequence the gross intake of teachers into the county schools will be reduced by 350 next year, with a consequential reduction of two...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Housing (6 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: The hon. Member for North Fylde (Mr. Clegg) said so many things with which I disagree that I hope he will forgive me if I do not take up each of his points, otherwise I should probably use the whole of my 10 minutes in meeting them. I should like, however, to refer to two points made by the hon. Gentleman. The hon. Gentleman and other Opposition Members make continual references to the...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Housing (6 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: I apologise, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It was your predecessor who reminded another hon. Member of the need to curtail his remarks in view of the numbers of hon. Members still wishing to speak.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Housing (6 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: Local authorities and other public authorities own many properties which remain empty for substantial periods. From the local authority point of view, this usually arises from insufficient manpower on the housing side, but more particularly on the legal side which is concerned with the conveyancing. That leads to many houses remaining empty. I suggest with some diffidence that local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Rates (26 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: Has my right hon. Friend any advice to offer to local authorities whose commitments next year may lead them to have rate poundages in excess of an additional 25 per cent. following their decision to go in for civic buildings and other projects which by no stretch of the imagination can be termed "inescapable commitments"?

Abortion (Amendment) Bill (Select Committee) (26 Feb 1975)

Dr Jim Marshall: The hon. Gentleman might mention a well-known game in which the hon. Member for Isle of Ely (Mr. Freud) participates. One of the rules of that game concerns repetition. I suggest that the hon. Gentleman is becoming somewhat repetitious in his praise. Another rule of the game suggests that he should now sit down and allow a speaker from the Labour benches to take over.
