Prayers: Parkhurst Prison (Category A Prisoners) (20 Nov 1969)

Mr William Deedes: How many prisons are there which can take category A prisoners?

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Bill (11 Nov 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I want to take up almost the last point made by the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Renee Short), namely, the question of control, and her observation that we all now agree that some form of control is necessary. I want to move straight from that to the speech delivered by my right hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Powell), and to ask whether some of...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Bill (11 Nov 1969)

Mr William Deedes: For reasons quite different from those argued from the Front Bench, I would much prefer a more selective system in which we took what we wanted by means of work permits, but made the reasons for what we were doing clear to other people and even clearer to ourselves. What I object to is that we half blind ourselves to what we are doing—in fact, we do not realise what we are doing—first to...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Bill (11 Nov 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Why are we limiting numbers?

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Bill (11 Nov 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Is it not this factor of delay that is now an important consideration?

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Bill (11 Nov 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Before the hon. Gentleman leaves the important point about visitors, will he confirm or otherwise whether we have the same system for checking visitors in and out in respect of Commonwealth people as for aliens? That is a very important matter.

Schedule 2: Welfare of Livestock (Bram- Bell Committee's Report) (20 Oct 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I found the presentation by the hon. Member for Bury and Radcliffe (Mr. Ensor) of poultry as a sort of new privileged class very fascinating but slightly overdone, and my remarks will not follow very closely the arguments that he has advanced to the House. If I were to act—and I think that this goes for everybody in the House—in the light of most of the letters that I have received on...

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons Bill: Care Proceedings in Juvenile Courts. (15 Oct 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I apologise to the opening speakers in the debate for not having been present when they spoke. I hope that the Under-Secretary is now impressed with the weight of opinion behind the Amendment and against the present sense of the Clause. Outside the House opinion right from the start, felt strongly on this matter, has not come from any one profession or any one branch of those interested in...

Northern Ireland (13 Oct 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I agree with my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Down, South (Captain Orr) that this is not the easiest sort of debate to join in any capacity. Far too much may hang on what any one of us says Generally—I think the Home Secretary will agree—and making certain allowances, the debate has been characterised by restraint and good sense on both sides. One conclusion borne in on me by...

Northern Ireland (13 Oct 1969)

Mr William Deedes: And accepted. Moreover, the main conclusions will coincide with some of the superficial impressions gained by those of us who paid visits to Northern Ireland. Of all the impressions that I got there, none was more compelling than the need to end the para-military functions of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. Not, as the Hunt Committee testified, because it has grossly abused its powers, but...

Petitions: Channel Tunnel (25 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: My purpose in seeking to debate the Channel Tunnel is mainly exploratory. It follows that my speech will be mainly interrogatory. It may be, however, that, try as I will, I shall be unable altogether to disguise the profound scepticism that I feel for the project. But I shall not waste more time than necessary in simply expressing misgivings. The fact is—and this is my main indictment of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Drugs (24 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Arising from what the right hon. Gentleman said about the reports, can he tell us whether we have any international means of discussing this matter with these various quarters?

Orders of the Day — Crime (23 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Would the hon. Gentleman agree that the percentage of crimes cleared up has a bearing on crime and that that figure may depend on the strength of the police?

Orders of the Day — Crime (23 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Does not the hon. Gentleman accept that there was a period when police establishments were deliberately not increased because of the shortfall in recruiting? If he makes comparisons over a period between strength and establishment, he must take into account periods when the establishment were not where they should have been.

Orders of the Day — Broadcasting in the Seventies (B.B.C. Plan) (22 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I agree with the Postmaster-General that this is an important debate. It is important because we are not really discussing the B.B.C.'s Music Programme or local sound radio, or the B.B.C.'s recent paper on its own future. What we are discussing today is the future of the B.B.C. itself. We are not simply discussing, critically, as everyone else has been doing, with a certain amount of...

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Is the right hon. Gentleman saying that the Boundary Commission cannot usefully begin their work until the new local authorities under the Redcliffe-Maud Report are established?

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: There has always seemed to me the likelihood of a long interval between the fixing of boundaries, after which we shall know roughly where we stand, and the vesting day on which new local authorities will come into existence. Why cannot the Boundary Commission start work after the first phase rather than after the second phase?

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I understood the right hon. Gentleman to feel that unless there were new local authorities in existence to whom representations could be made, the exercise could not begin.

Orders of the Day — HOUSE OF COMMONS (REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS) (No. 2) BILL: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Bound Ary Commissions, and Accelera Tion of Those Reports (8 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: Further to the point of order. May I put to you a very real difficulty, Mr. Irving, which may well occur again? It arises in this sense. There are two kinds of hon. Members endeavouring to catch your eye in the debates, those with particular interests arising from the Bill and those of us who wish to put points of more general character. I am among this latter category. I felt it right, in...

Orders of the Day — HOUSE OF COMMONS (REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS) (No. 2) BILL: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Bound Ary Commissions, and Accelera Tion of Those Reports (8 Jul 1969)

Mr William Deedes: I fully share the view of my hon. Friend the Member for Runcorn (Mr. Carlisle) in supporting this group of Amendments. The more that we are able to transfer decisions to the chairman and other members of the Commission from the Home Office, the more reliable and trustworthy will they be. I address myself in particular to Amendment No. 35, which seems to raise a distinctive point. In effect,...
