Private Business: London Transport Bill (15 Apr 1975)

George Young: It is a pleasure to be called to speak in this debate following the remarks of the hon. Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing), who was my predecessor as Member of Parliament for Acton. His interest in London Transport matters is well remembered in the constituency. It is a matter of personal regret to me that in four years there he did not solve all the problems involving London Transport...

Private Business: London Transport Bill (15 Apr 1975)

George Young: The complications are not solely those posed by British Rail tickets. There are also problems associated with season tickets issued by London Transport, and other tickets of short duration or on special offer. The problem is more complicated. As regards tickets, although the GLC gave its approval to the latest round of fare increases on 21st November 1974, which came into effect four...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (24 Mar 1975)

George Young: asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he will merge the British Tourist Authority with the national tourist boards.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Tourism (24 Mar 1975)

George Young: Does not the Minister agree that having two autonomous bodies responsible for formulating and implementing tourist policy is thoroughly wasteful and can lead only to confusion? Will he introduce a unified structure of tourist administration?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Regents Park (Tree Felling) (19 Mar 1975)

George Young: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many more mature trees in Regents Park his Department is proposing to fell.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Regents Park (Tree Felling) (19 Mar 1975)

George Young: Can the Minister explain why only visual inspection was made of the trees before they were pulled down and why there was no tree surgery to protect the public from falling branches when they were being pulled down? Can he explain, further, why he failed to consult Westminster City Council and Camden Borough Council before taking the action he did?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Pensions Bill (18 Mar 1975)

George Young: Will the hon. Gentleman reveal to the House the name of the author of the article?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Pensions Bill (18 Mar 1975)

George Young: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will deal with the question of the Post Office pension fund, which was deemed to be invested in Government securities. The deficit of several hundred million pounds which resulted was solely because it was not invested outside the business. It was invested within the public sector and it depreciated at a sensational rate.

Orders of the Day — Social Security Pensions Bill (18 Mar 1975)

George Young: I shall deal with one of the points raised by the hon. Member for Glasgow, Mary-hill (Mr. Craigen) about the future liability of the generations to come. However, I should like to start by saying how appropriate it is that in this debate, Mr. Deputy Speaker, you should have called upon the hon. Member for Walsall, South (Mr. George) and myself, because we are both significant members of the...

Orders of the Day — GREATER LONDON COUNCIL (GENERAL POWERS) BILL (By Order) (13 Mar 1975)

George Young: It is a pleasure to be called to speak following the remarks of the hon. Member for Peckham (Mr. Lamborn) with whom I spent three years at County Hall, albeit on opposite sides of the council chamber. I wish to pay tribute to the way in which the hon. Member for Enfield, North (Mr. Davies) introduced the Bill. I am sorry that I cannot display towards the hon. Gentleman the same enthusiasm...

Orders of the Day — New Clause A (12 Mar 1975)

George Young: I support the amendment moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Exeter (Mr. Hannam), which follows logically from our recent debate when we relaxed the earnings rule for pensioners. Many hon. Members believe that the relaxation of the earnings rule for invalidity pensioners should have even higher priority than the relaxation of the rule for retirement pensioners. The argument put forward in...

Orders of the Day — Food Shops (Take-Away Meals) (28 Feb 1975)

George Young: The House has just spent five hours debating the problems of mobile homes. I invite it now to look at the problems of mobile food. Many hon. Members will have seen on television advertisements for the sale of take-away cooked chickens. This type of meal combines uniquely, I believe, all the disadvantages of eating out—the need to make a journey, the probability of high cost and even of a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Electricity (Ripple Control) (24 Feb 1975)

George Young: asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will issue a general direction to area electricity boards to install ripple control in order to save fuel.

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Electricity (Ripple Control) (24 Feb 1975)

George Young: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that ripple control is widely used on the Continent and that recent cost-benefit analysis has shown that a return of more than 50 per cent. would be achieved if this country adopted the same control because of the reduction that would be possible in investment in distribution and generation equipment?

Orders of the Day — Air Travel Reserve Fund Bill (20 Feb 1975)

George Young: It is a pleasure to speak after my hon. Friend the Member for Romford (Mr. Neubert), whose first-hand knowledge of the travel industry enabled him to speak with such experience on the Bill. I should preface my remarks by saying that I am in no way related to the former managing director of Court Line, whose flamboyant mismanagement is mainly responsible for this debate. I am sorry to see...

Orders of the Day — Air Travel Reserve Fund Bill (20 Feb 1975)

George Young: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I was seeking to anticipate a possible line of defence to which the Secretary of State might resort by saying that he did not write these headlines. I am obliged to my right hon. Friend for pointing out that the Press got it absolutely right. Immediately after the collapse, Ministers denied that there was any governmental responsibility. It was only when...

Orders of the Day — Equality of Opportunity (13 Feb 1975)

George Young: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that two weeks ago the Labour Party denied family allowances to the first child of single-parent families? How does the hon. Gentleman reconcile that hard-hearted attitude with his impassioned speech?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Probationers (Compensation Orders) (6 Feb 1975)

George Young: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in view of the fact that those placed on probation with compensation orders to repay stolen funds are free to leave the country and thereby avoid the penalties imposed on them by the courts, whether he will propose measures designed to prevent this abuse.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Probationers (Compensation Orders) (6 Feb 1975)

George Young: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, but will he consider a system of endorsing passports, or a system whereby bonds are placed with the courts, before people with compensation orders against them are allowed to leave the country, particularly where, as in some cases, compensation orders are made as an alternative to imprisonment?
