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

Mr Tom Driberg: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker I am not the hon. Member for Maldon.

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I am not the hon. Member for Maldon.

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

Mr Tom Driberg: With reference to the last point of order raised by the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight, it is nonsense to say that there were no rules which the county council could exercise in controlling pop festivals. On the contrary, in another letter the clerk of the county council remarked that it was necessary, for example, to continue to consider the following, all of which are mentioned in the...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: When you replied to the point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I was about to try to intervene on another point of order to suggest that perhaps questions of order might be left to the Chair, as is customary. But evidently the hon. Member for Isle of Wight is so frightened about his little Bill that he wants to gag anyone who dares to utter a word of criticism about it. You have said, Mr....

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I am sorry, but I shall have to seek your guidance, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I have very little experience of this kind of Measure. Although you say that the terms of Lords Amendment No. 4 are narrow, it is a very long Amendment. Then there are Amendments to it in my name and that of my hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Wellbeloved), whose absence—[Interruption.]—through...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I am obliged for your guidance, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Therefore, I shall deal briefly with the first of my Amendments—[Interruption.]—although the more often that one is interrupted, the less brief one is apt to be. Those hon. Members who do not want to listen had better shut up and go back to the Smoking Room. It seems to me that the words "and agreement" after "consultation" are the sort...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: Then I beg to move the Amendment, without any hope that it will have a satisfactory outcome. My second Amendment proposes to leave out as the Council think fit and to insert concerned with the intended site Hon. Members on both sides of the House who have studied the Bill in some detail, as I am sure they all have or they would not be here, will realise at once the relevance of that...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: On a point of order. Could you possibly put the Question on the two other Amendments, Mr. Deputy Speaker?

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

Mr Tom Driberg: With great respect, are they strictly consequential? They seem to deal with somewhat different points.

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

Mr Tom Driberg: Further to that point of order. With the greatest possible respect, Mr. Speaker said that the three Amendments could be discussed together. It is common practice for several Amendments to be discussed together, but it is for the mover of them to have the right to divide or not to divide on each separately. I had intended to divide on the third one if it were so put.

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

Mr Tom Driberg: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Would you disregard that intervention as irrelevant, ungallant and impertinent and give a Ruling on a matter on which Mr. Speaker did not rule?

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

Mr Tom Driberg: We shall have to wait until the day after tomorrow to see in HANSARD whether Mr. Speaker did say what I did not hear him say, that separate Divisions would not be allowed. [Interruption.] I hear one of the usual catcalls from the other side. I am sorry to delay you in this way, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I wanted to divide on the third Amendment, not on the first and second. Mr. Speaker said nothing...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I am surprised that the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight (Mr. Woodnutt) has not said anything in support of his Motion. He has, I take it, exhausted his right to speak except by leave of the House. It is odd that he has not told us why he has felt obliged, or why the county council has felt obliged, to concede so many points to the strong representations made to it in another place. There...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I do not quite see how that is relevant to the point I was making. I was referring to the chief constable and was reminding the House that he paid tribute, as did the police generally, to the good conduct and behaviour of the majority of the young people. Of course, there were some bad hats among them—I am not talking about the promoters, or anything to do with them—but the chief...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I am sure the hon. and gallant Gentleman will, but he should always make his interventions standing and not from a sitting position. There are a number of other provisions, some of which are reasonable and unexceptionable, but some of which are going much too far in interfering with the ordinary rights of assembly and the ordinary rights of people assembled for public occasions in the open...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: That is a matter of opinion. The hon. Gentleman's opinion is naturally echoed by a few barks from his friends. [An HON. MEMBER: "Where are the hon. Gentleman's Friends?"] The exquisite quality of the wit emanating from the other side enables me to say "tu quoque". The hon. Gentleman does not have to stay. He can go straight back to the Smoking Room and enjoy himself. He will not be bored...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: Goodness, the wit that is being displayed! It is almost overwhelming; it is so scintillating. I fear I shall have to disappoint you, Mr. Speaker, and the House, in that I cannot go on giving way to interventions if they cannot do better than that. I do not want either to bore or to detain the House unduly. I shall therefore end this brief speech by saying that the essence of the Bill and of...

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

Mr Tom Driberg: I cannot remember whether the hon. Gentleman heard the beginning of the Second Reading debate. If he did, he will remember that when I said that the effect of the Bill would be to wipe out pop festivals altogether, in the Isle of Wight, at any rate, there was a tremendous roar of applause from hon. Members about him, indicating that that was precisely what they wanted.

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

Mr Tom Driberg: Not in the least, since the hon. Gentleman challenges me. But it was possible to see that it was carried out by agreement under the existing legislation without this draconian Bill.

Complaint of Privilege (19 Jul 1971)

Mr Tom Driberg: There is no need for this discussion to be long or stormy, with great respect to the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the House. If every time one of our millions of constituents made some casual remark of this kind in a public or semi-public meeting it were to be referred to the Committee of Privileges, that Committee would be in continuous session. There was no need to have bothered...
