Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Arson and Loss Claims (27 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: Will the Minister bear in mind that detailed factual reports on a number of these incidents were submitted to Scotland Yard some years ago and no action was taken? Could he at least find out why that is so, and ask the Yard particularly to investigate the activities of Mr. Leopold Harris and his family firm of L. S. Harris, who are up to their old trick of submitting fraudulent claims, often...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Arson and Loss Claims (27 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: In view of the unsatisfactory nature of that reply, I beg to give notice that I shall seek to raise this matter on the Adjournment.

Rhodesia (24 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: Does the right hon. Gentleman recall that in his original answer, which was presumably a prepared one, he did not rely on physical inability to control Mr. Smith but said "I cannot question his right" to do something? What statutory right does Mr. Smith have? [HON. MEMBERS: "None."]

Orders of the Day — Whitehall and Parliamentary Precincts (24 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: I shall speak for only a few moments, to say how strongly I support everything the hon. Member for Bristol, West (Mr. Robert Cooke) said. Obviously he could have spoken for an hour, with all the material he had, and if he had done so I should still have supported everything he said. The hon. Gentleman mentioned the Foreign Office. I am still in some confusion about the prospects for the...

Orders of the Day — Whitehall and Parliamentary Precincts (24 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: The Foreign Office?

Rhodesia (19 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: When the right hon. Gentleman referred to the minorities whom he saw, how does he know that some of them were not a majority? How does he know that they were only minorities? Is he suggesting that minorities have no rights to express their opinions?

Rhodesia (19 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: Not at all. That is what the right hon. Gentleman said. Will the right hon. Gentleman guarantee to the House that the Pearce Commission will be allowed privately to see Mr. Garfield Todd and his daughter should that be desired?

Malta (17 Jan 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that Mr. Mintoff's lifting of the Saturday deadline became known a day or two before the date which he has mentioned and that this contributed to the new atmosphere in which it was possible for the talks to start again? Will he confirm that when the talks start again this week—I think on Wednesday—they will begin from a new agreed starting point? Whether...

ISLAND OF ROCKALL BILL [Lords] (21 Dec 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: My right hon. Friend referred to the word "adjacent". How far off can "adjacent" be?

Church of England Measures (21 Dec 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Or those "ready and desirous"

Church of England Measures (21 Dec 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: I am glad that a general welcome has been given so far to these Measures. I am sure that the hon. Member for Chelsea (Mr. Worsley), who is Second Church Estates Commissioner, will be able to deal with the technical points raised. I found the speech of the hon. Member for Torrington (Mr. Peter Mills) moving and sympathetic and I agree with almost everything he said. To the point he made about...

Church of England Measures (21 Dec 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Most such people would be covered by the alternative provision "ready and desirous". If the incumbent had any qualms of conscience about it, he would consult the bishop, who in most cases would take a fairly liberal view, I think, even before this Measure was passed. There was some concern about this Measure, because there are denominations or sects whom one may describe without intolerance...

Church of England Measures (21 Dec 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: One may be baptised in the Church of England, but one is not baptised into the Church of England; one is baptised into the entire Catholic Church, of which the Church of England is a part. Baptism can be administered, and sometimes is in emergency, not by a priest or a deacon but by a layman or, indeed, a woman or a non-Christian if the Trinitarian formula is used and water is poured.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Mentally Handicapped Children (25 Nov 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware there is one special category of children—sometimes wrongly lumped with all mentally handicapped children—for whom far too little is done in the way of research, accommodation or training, namely, autistic children?

Business of the House (25 Nov 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he has noted Early Day Motion No. 63 which has been signed by hon. Members who are in favour of and some who are opposed to the broadcasting of the proceedings of Parliament?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Judicial Staff College (8 Nov 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman tell us whether these courses include training both in impar- tiality and in ordinary common sense, which is needed by some judges, such as the trial judge in the Oz case?

Private Business: Model Terms and Conditions Under Section 5 (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: I beg to move, as an Amendment to the Lords Amendment, in the proposed new Clause 5, subsection (2), line 3, after 'consultation ', insert 'and agreement'.

Private Business: Model Terms and Conditions Under Section 5 (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Yes, Mr. Speaker. It occurred to me, as I have already notified you, that this whole discussion might be out of order because the matters referred to in this Amendment could be sub judice. However, I am informed that the sub judice rule does not apply to legislation. The reason I mention this matter is that last Friday the Clerk to the Isle of Wight County Council issued a public statement...

Private Business: Model Terms and Conditions Under Section 5 (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Yes, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I note the sensitivity displayed by the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight (Mr. Woodnutt) in referring to the heavy defeat he suffered in the other place in regard to the operation of the provision as from 1st December, which rules out this year. At the same time this reminds me of a curious letter by the clerk of the county council which I have in my hand in the...

Private Business: Model Terms and Conditions Under Section 5 (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: Yes, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am glad that you mentioned the rural district council because at present the relevant rural district council is totally opposed to the view of the county council which is proposing this Bill. That is a curious local situation and a curious local disagreement. I was saying—
