Vestures of Ministers Measure (30 Jul 1964)

Mr James Ede: This is a difficult and delicate matter which we have been discussing this evening and I think that it says something for the way in which the House has approached it that, so far, no violent language has been used on either side. It is well known that I am a Nonconformist. My constituents knew it when they elected me and in the years that I have represented the parliamentary Borough of...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill (23 Jul 1964)

Mr James Ede: We are discussing today a matter of very great delicacy, and practically everything that we have to say and much of what we shall do have really been predetermined for us by the forces of history. I was a member, with my right hon. Friend the Member for Llanelly (Mr. J. Griffiths), of the Round Table Conference that visited Malta in 1955 when we were discussing the issue of the integration of...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill (23 Jul 1964)

Mr James Ede: No, but it will have to be submitted to the House and the right hon. Gentleman cannot say what will happen to anything when it is submitted to the House. We will doubtless regard it as a good and proper Order, but he must not be surprised if some of my hon. Friends think the mere fact that he approves of it entitles us to be very suspicious as to what its full effect will be. We are...

Orders of the Day — Young Persons (Employment) Bill: Clause 1. — (Amendment of Section 7(1) of 1938 Act.) (26 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: I have to begin by saying something which I very much dislike saying. I think that the problems raised by the Bill are beyond the resources of a private Member trying to get legislation through the House. I hope that the hon. Lady the Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Miss Vickers) will not think that I am saying anything discouraging about her, because I know that she has had a notable series...

Orders of the Day — Refreshment Houses Bill (23 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: Half-past seven.

Orders of the Day — Refreshment Houses Bill (23 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: The Home Secretary is to be congratulated in bringing this matter before the House. It is one of great difficulty, and if anything effective is to be done it will need very careful handling. I should not like to see the right hon. Gentleman lured by the hon. Member for Cheadle (Mr. Shepherd) into trying to turn the Bill into a Measure to deal with the status of clubs which exist merely to...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: The hon. and learned Member for Surrey, East (Mr. Doughty) mentioned that he and I are serving on a Committee which was appointed by the present Foreign Secretary when he was Home Secretary to discuss the whole of this matter in its widest form. Since that Committee has been sitting for a considerable time, it would be unwise for Parliament to pass this Bill today. It would be even more...

Orders of the Day — Public Libraries and Museums Bill: New Clause. — (Charges for Admission to Museums and Galleries (8 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: I regret to see the right hon. Gentleman bringing in this Clause, for I believe it to be thoroughly reactionary and against the tradition of the country. It could be made a vehicle for considerably reducing the cultural opportunities of large numbers of citizens, both young and old. In the nineteenth century this country, by a series of measures, threw open, as wide as the circumstances of...

Orders of the Day — Public Libraries and Museums Bill: Clause 1. — Minister of Education to Superintend Library Service. (8 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: My hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey) has raised a most important constitutional point. The theory of the constitution is that there is one Secretary of State. In my day, he was liable to be split into seven or eight separate persons. I do not know how many Secretaries of State there are now, but one of the anomalies is that no matter how many there are—[An HON....

Orders of the Day — Public Libraries and Museums Bill: Clause 1. — Minister of Education to Superintend Library Service. (8 Jun 1964)

Mr James Ede: He becomes responsible for foreign policy if the Foreign Secretary is not available.

Orders of the Day — Cigarettes (Health Hazards) Bill (8 May 1964)

Mr James Ede: They can still talk it out.

Scrap Metal Dealers Bill: Clause 4. — (Power for Court to Impose Additional Requirements on Con- Victed Dealers.) (24 Apr 1964)

Mr James Ede: I join in the congratulations which have been offered to the hon. Member for Leeds, North-West (Sir D. Kaberry) upon bringing the Measure before the House and getting it as far as this, but in two or three of the speeches that have been made I detected a somewhat unusual note, at this stage in our proceedings. There has been a suggestion that this is not a good and perfect Bill even now, and...

Scrap Metal Dealers Bill: Clause 4. — (Power for Court to Impose Additional Requirements on Con- Victed Dealers.) (24 Apr 1964)

Mr James Ede: Everybody may be proud of his own handiwork. The hon. and gallant Member for Eye (Sir H. Harrison) expressed the doubts to which I have drawn attention. I regret that the report of the Home Office did not indicate how far it accepted the view, not of the promoter but of the hon. and gallant Member, as to the need for some alterations in this Bill before it reaches the Statute Book.

Scrap Metal Dealers Bill: Clause 4. — (Power for Court to Impose Additional Requirements on Con- Victed Dealers.) (24 Apr 1964)

Mr James Ede: May we take it that whatever may be the doubts of the hon. and gallant Member for Eye about the perfection of the Bill, the hon. Lady, as Under-Secretary, has no such doubts, and that if the Bill goes unamended through another place she will rejoice in its being put on the Statute Book, no matter what may be the feelings of the hon. and gallant Gentleman?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 83. — (Effect of Cessation of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr James Ede: The Government are not treating the House fairly on this part of the Bill, which we have been discussing for the last hour or more. One can sympathise with the Parliamentary Secretary. He sits in his place like Casablanca. His right hon. Friend has gone and although we have been dealing with extremely complicated legal matters—and the hon. Member for Bedfordshire, South (Mr. Cole) has just...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: New Clause. — (Security of Tenure During the Operation of Notices Under Part Ii of Act of 1961.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr James Ede: One has lived to see the day when a Tory Minister would stand at the Dispatch Box and, speaking on a housing issue, say, "How can you expect me, as a Tory, to deal with this?"

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: New Clause. — (Security of Tenure During the Operation of Notices Under Part Ii of Act of 1961.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr James Ede: It is within the recollection of the House. I hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Fulham (Mr. M. Stewart) will see that the speech that the Minister has delivered is printed and circulated throughout the country, particularly in those areas where the housing problem is most acute. What can one do but sympathise with the Minister in having made the speech which he did? He received from...

Orders of the Day — Police Bill: Clause 2. — (Police Authorities for Counties and County Boroughs.) (12 Mar 1964)

Mr James Ede: I understand that we are taking together the Amendment in page 2, line 11, two Amendments in line 12 and two Amendments in line 13 and line 15 and making reference to the later Amendments which apply the same kind of principle to the county borough forces as the Amendments which I have mentioned apply to the county police committees. I support the views expressed by my hon. Friend the Member...
