R.a.F. Station, North Pickenham (Demonstration) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: (by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Air why demonstrators were able to enter upon the Royal Air Force Station at North Pickenham on 6th to 7th December, hindering the workmen from carrying on their normal duties, what action he intends to take to avoid similar occurrences, and whether he will make a statement?

R.a.F. Station, North Pickenham (Demonstration) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: In view of the fact that these demonstrators have been in this neighbourhood for some time, endeavouring to cause a stoppage of work by picketing and, having failed to do it by those means, by going on to the site, is it not time that workmen engaged in this work should be protected against intrusion by people who desire, for political purposes, to bring about a stoppage of work? Is the...

R.a.F. Station, North Pickenham (Demonstration) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the further report to which he referred is made available to the House, to make it plain that undue force was not used by the local or other police engaged on that site against any of the demonstrators? [HON. MEMBERS: "How does the hon. Member know?"] I was there.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Farm Improvement Schemes (Thatching) (4 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many applications under the Farm Improvement Scheme have been received which involved the use of reed for thatched roofs; how many have been approved for grant; and how many have been rejected.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Farm Improvement Schemes (Thatching) (4 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: Does not the hon. Gentleman realise that if most of these farm improvement schemes mean using asbestos roofing and reed thatching is rejected, we shall lose one of those amenities of the countryside which we are trying to preserve?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Fat Steers and Heifers (Deficiency Payments) (4 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why the subsidies offered for Grade I fat steers and heifers for the week commencing 10th November were 3s. per live cwt., nothing for the week commencing 17th November, and 6s. per live cwt. for the week commencing 24th November.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Fat Steers and Heifers (Deficiency Payments) (4 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: Does the hon. Gentleman mean to say that between the weeks commencing 17th October and 24th October there was an average difference of 6s. per live cwt. for fatstock entering markets or slaughterhouses? Does not this state of affairs mean that a farmer who sends his cattle one week gets a bigger subsidy although there is not a comparable variation in the market price?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Statutory Small Holdings (Improvement Schemes) (4 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many schemes under Section 58 for improvement to statutory small holdings he has approved during each of the past three years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Statutory Small Holdings (Improvement Schemes) (4 Dec 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: Does the right hon. Gentleman think that progress of improvements to statutory small holdings is fast enough? As he is recommending others to improve their farms, cannot he get on faster with county council small holdings?

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: The hon. Gentleman can say that there are over 1 million acres and only 34,000 electors, but there are, of course, hundreds of thousands of those acres that are uninhabited by anybody.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: The hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro), in his final sentence, let the cat out of the bag. To remove all restrictions—

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: It is, of course, a little difficult to follow the hon. Member in that claim. In the light of the Bill we must restrict ourselves to the use of motor cars at elections. The burden of the hon. Member's speech has been based on exceptional circumstances, and in quoting the most extreme cases in Great Britain he wants to amend the law so as to give to the extreme cases the full advantage of...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: The hon. Member is quite early in his interruptions.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: That merely shows that the hon. Gentleman was not listening to what I was saying, but was thinking of the interruption which he could make. It was not referring to county council elections at all. All I said was that it is the duty of the county council to make arrangements for polling stations, and that where the county council made adequate arrangements for polling stations there was no...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: I am not objecting to people using their own cars to take themselves to the polling station, or, indeed, members of their family or anybody who happens to be going in that direction on that occasion. It seems to me that there never has been a restriction on that. That is a good neighbour policy which has been carried out in the past and I see no objection to it. But the right hon. and hon....

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: Has the party opposite been concerned previously about the low poll in the constituency of the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. Mackie)? The hon. Member for Galloway has not been concerned about the low poll in his constituency or in some other constituencies. The pressure has come from a few marginal constituencies. Those are the constituencies which have forced this view on the party...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: I am not here to go into the reasons why, but the argument that if there is a free use of cars at council elections there is a smaller percentage poll than at a Parliamentary election does not seem to me to add up to a reason for having an unrestricted use of cars at a Parliamentary election. It seems to me a very sound argument that in the last three General Elections everybody has accepted...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: No, I was not.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: On a point of order. Is it right or proper, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, for the hon. Member for Louth (Mr. Osborne) to refer to me as being unusually discourteous?

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill (25 Nov 1958)

Mr Sidney Dye: The hon. Member for Louth should withdraw.
