Licensing Laws (29 Jan 1960)

Mr William Deedes: I beg to second the Motion. Whatever our views may be on drink and licensing, I think that we shall all agree that my noble Friend the Member for Hertford (Lord Balniel) has picked a very good moment to raise this subject, and I immediately congratulate him on the way in which he has done it. It seems to me that he has not only done a service to the subject by his speech but indirectly a...

Licensing Laws (29 Jan 1960)

Mr William Deedes: My hon. Friend has anticipated the point I was about to make. One fear I have about this possible increase in gambling is that it would introduce a new danger to the public house just at a time when, for many reasons, there is good cause to encourage the public house to embrace a wider social circle. This brings me to the problem of young people, which is the last point I want to make. They...

Orders of the Day — Public Bodies (Admission of the Press to Meetings) Bill (5 Feb 1960)

Mr William Deedes: On behalf of the sponsors of the Bill I find myself, rather earlier than I had expected, in a position to answer some of the points which have been made. I wish to express my regrets to those hon. Members on both sides who I know had hoped to catch your eye, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, and to take part in the debate. Whatever the result at 4 o'clock, I think that it will be agreed emphatically that...

Orders of the Day — Public Bodies (Admission of the Press to Meetings) Bill (5 Feb 1960)

Mr William Deedes: The hon. Member for Islington, North (Mr. Reynolds) has a good point there, but the fact remains that it is the practice in this House not to seek the advice of the Officers of the House on matters that are hypothetical before a Committee meets. However, even if the supporters of the Bill fail in Standing Committee to secure what they feel to be an essential purpose of the Bill, they will...

Orders of the Day — Public Bodies (Admission of the Press to Meetings) Bill (5 Feb 1960)

Mr William Deedes: That is not as I understand the provisions of the Bill. This is precisely the kind of thing which must be hammered out when the Bill goes to Committee. May I touch on other fears which have been expressed? There has been the suggestion—and again I think this needs careful thought—that in throwing open the doors we render confidential discussions with permanent officials impossible and...

Orders of the Day — Public Bodies (Admission of the Press to Meetings) Bill (5 Feb 1960)

Mr William Deedes: rose in his place and claimed to move, That the Question be now put.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Birdcage Walk (Road Works) (1 Mar 1960)

Mr William Deedes: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that not only in this park, but also in Green Park, for the same reason, things are in a sad mess? As we approach the summer months, when there will be a large number of visitors to enjoy and admire these gardens, can my right hon. Friend do something about speeding up this work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Catherine Place and Buckingham Gate (Property Development) (29 Mar 1960)

Mr William Deedes: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether proposals to develop property in Catherine Place, Westminster, and in Buckingham Gate, have yet been referred to him, in view of the historic interest of 17 and 18 Buckingham Gate; and what observations he has made.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Catherine Place and Buckingham Gate (Property Development) (29 Mar 1960)

Mr William Deedes: In view of the fact that No. 17 has been scheduled, and that my right hon. Friend has therefore an interest in it and a responsibility for it, can my hon. Friend say what steps will be taken if it is decided to proceed with the development as a whole?

Orders of the Day — Clean Rivers (Estuaries and Tidal Waters) Bill (1 Apr 1960)

Mr William Deedes: I hope that the House will give the Bill a Third Reading, and I want to say something which my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate (Mr. Ramsden), who has been responsible for the Bill, cannot say for himself. There is one aspect which will affect the working out of these proposals more than anything else and which will affect the future of the Bill more than anything else. It is the degree...

Clause 4. — (Compulsory Acquisition of Land for Purposes of Act.) (23 May 1960)

Mr William Deedes: I hope that my short intervention will not arouse the wrath of the hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Boardman). I apologise for the intrusion of a Member representing a constituency in south-east England in a north-western affair, but Lancashire is not the only county facing the problem of town development, with which I am wholly sympathetic, and I think that Lancashire would be the first to admit...

Clause 4. — (Compulsory Acquisition of Land for Purposes of Act.) (23 May 1960)

Mr William Deedes: I was stating my reasons for supporting that Amendment, but I will endeavour not to go too wide in what I am saying. Lancashire is seeking to improve its work, in this matter of co-ordinating the movement of industry with the movement of population, in a new way, and, coming back to Clause 4, with new powers which must include very heavy additional and unfamiliar responsibilities for...

Orders of the Day — Noise Abatement Bill: Clause 2. — (Restriction of Operation on Highways, &C., of Loudspeakers.) (27 May 1960)

Mr William Deedes: I should like to make two points that so far seem to have escaped notice. First, it would be fair to say that one difficulty is that the difference in the problem as between rural and urban areas is greater than anyone has acknowledged. Speaking for the rural areas, I should say that the electrical hooter is a tremendous aid to selling ice cream, without which the van will not be seen or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land (Rehabilitation) (31 May 1960)

Mr William Deedes: As a matter of interest, has my hon. Friend any figures to show what use local authorities have made of these powers?

Orders of the Day — Clause 61. — (Increase of Rate of Profits Tax.) (31 May 1960)

Mr William Deedes: There is a point which was raised by the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) which I do not think my hon. Friend answered, namely, in respect of historic houses—that is, houses in receipt of a grant from the Ministry of Works and the Treasury, which in effect have to be open to the public and become very much in the category of a "museum or similar institution" Would these...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Historic Buildings (Repair and Maintenance) (21 Jun 1960)

Mr William Deedes: As it is seven years since the House had a chance of discussing this subject, when the original Act was passed, will my right hon. Friend represent to the Leader of the House that the possibility of our having even part of a day to discuss this subject might be acceptable to both sides of the House?

Orders of the Day — MATRIMONIAL PROCEEDINGS (MAGISTRATES' COURTS) BILL [Lords]: Wolfenden Report (Part Two) (29 Jun 1960)

Mr William Deedes: Personally, I unreservedly welcome this debate and can at least support what the hon. Member for St. Pancras, North (Mr. K. Robinson) has said in respect of his choice and the reasons for it. I think that many of us also warmly approve the restrained manner in which he has moved his Motion. I am among those, perhaps a minority, who think in many respects that the more we are compelled to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Monckton Commission (Report) (25 Oct 1960)

Mr William Deedes: Do I understand from what the Prime Minister said that we are to have a day before the Federal Review to discuss the Report?

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Central Areas (Redevelopment) (8 Nov 1960)

Mr William Deedes: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he has made any estimate of the toal cost involved in current plans for the comprehensive redevelopment of central areas in cities and towns; and whether he will consider setting up some official agency which could assist by loans the financing of these long-term projects.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Central Areas (Redevelopment) (8 Nov 1960)

Mr William Deedes: Has the Parliamentary Secretary and his right hon. Friend considered the Report produced as a result of the one-day school at the Civic Trust, which my right hon. Friend opened, which put forward the suggestion that, in order to bring some of these arrangements together, something like a land finance corporation is very desirable? In view of the importance to some of us of avoiding haphazard...
