Mr William Aitken: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty as follows: Most Gracious Sovereign,We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament.

Queen's Speech (30 Oct 1962)

Mr William Aitken: There is also the lovely town of Bury St. Edmunds, which has a long and somewhat turbulent history. It is known throughout the world as the place where democracy began, for there, in 1214, the barons swore by the high altar of the Abbey of St. Edmunds that they would force King John to sign Magna Carta. The Gracious Speech rightly attaches the highest importance to the development and...

European Economic Community (7 Jun 1962)

Mr William Aitken: I do not sit quite so much on the fence as the hon. Member for Glasgow, Craig-ton (Mr. Millan). I go quite a long way, because I am one of those people who believe that it is possible to reconcile the interests of the Commonwealth, the interests of Great Britain and the interests of the Common Market. Everything I have heard in the last two days has encouraged me in that way of thinking a...

Orders of the Day — AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTRY ASSOCIATIONS BILL (changed from AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTRY ASSOCIATIONS (TRADING AGREEMENTS) BILL) (6 Apr 1962)

Mr William Aitken: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. This Bill also has had support from both sides of the House. The reason for this happy situation is that it seeks to remove what could be a very serious handicap indeed to something which we all desire very much—that is, the maximum possible development of agricultural co-operation in this country. The vast majority of farmers in...

Orders of the Day — AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTRY ASSOCIATIONS BILL (changed from AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTRY ASSOCIATIONS (TRADING AGREEMENTS) BILL) (6 Apr 1962)

Mr William Aitken: My hon. friend knows a lot about forestry, so he will realise that although the major job of most of these forestry co-operatives is to assist their members in setting out trees and in giving technical advice, they also sell. In the original draft we stated that the major activity must be the selling of produce on behalf of members, but that would have been very unfair to forestry...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural and Forestry Associations (Trading Agreements) Bill (26 Jan 1962)

Mr William Aitken: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The Bill's object is to rectify a situation that has arisen as a result of the workings of the Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1956. Experience has shown that the wording of that Act, and its interpretation, will greatly inconvenience, if not seriously jeopardise, the functions and future of practically all our organised trading bodies...

Mr William Aitken: I apprehend the reason for my hon. Friend's intervention.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural and Forestry Associations (Trading Agreements) Bill (26 Jan 1962)

Mr William Aitken: It is true, but I think that my hon. Friend is concerned about the fact that under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act, 1961, we doubled the amount of money which any individual shareholder could hold. But because of the way in which agricultural co-operatives are developing today, and the way we hope they will continue to develop, it sometimes happens that the amount of capital...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural and Forestry Associations (Trading Agreements) Bill (26 Jan 1962)

Orders of the Day — Agricultural and Forestry Associations (Trading Agreements) Bill (26 Jan 1962)

Mr William Aitken: May I say to the right hon. Gentleman, without being too indiscreet, regarding the views about which he is concerned and counsel's opinion, that the advice which has been sought and the views taken on this matter go a good deal wider than a single counsel's opinion.

Bank of Africa (4 Aug 1961)

Mr William Aitken: I wish to echo the congratulations offered by my hon. Friend the Member for Surbiton (Mr. Fisher) to my hon. and learned Friend the Member for North-with (Mr. J. Foster) on his initiative in introducing the Motion before the House. I hope that my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State will take note of the fact that the project has had very wide support from both sides of the House. I am...

Leasehold Reform, Wales (12 Jul 1961)

Mr William Aitken: The hon. Member says that, but I do not remember giving them to him. Would he tell me when and where I gave them to him, because I have no recollection at all of giving him any such figures?

Leasehold Reform, Wales (12 Jul 1961)
