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?

New Clause 2: First Child Allowance for One-Parent Families (29 Jan 1975)

George Young: I very much hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Sir B. Rhys Williams) will stick to his guns and press the clause to a Division. So far we have had several speeches from both sides of the House with not one hon. Member dissenting from what my hon. Friend proposes. Nearly all hon. Members are committed to extending family allowances to the first child. It was in the manifestos...

New Clause 2: First Child Allowance for One-Parent Families (29 Jan 1975)

George Young: The Minister said that such people will now have the opportunity to do certain things. Does that mean that the new disregards are coming into effect as of now? If not, can he give the date when they will come into effect?

London Rail Study (20 Dec 1974)

George Young: I am grateful to the Minister for postponing the commencement of his Christmas holiday, or for leaving his office party early, in order to reply to this important Adjournment debate. I hope he will not think me uncharitable if I observe that it is he, and not a Minister of State for urban affairs, who will be at the Dispatch Box. In the last Parliament, debates on subjects concerning our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Service: Pakistanis (2 Dec 1974)

George Young: asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will issue instructions to prevent any further dismissals from the Civil Service of Pakistanis on the ground that they are no longer United Kingdom citizens.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Service: Pakistanis (2 Dec 1974)

George Young: Is it not regrettable that a civil servant who has discharged his duties perfectly adequately in the Department of Health and Social Security should be dismissed simply because the country in which he was born happened to leave the Commonwealth? Would there not be a national outcry if private employers treated their employees as the Civil Service treats its employees?
