Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 6. — (Purchase Tax.) (16 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Good heavens.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Lower Rates of Customs Dutes on E.F.T.a Goods.) (15 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Where can we find a list of the articles on which in some cases on duty and in other cases that duty with something else built into it is payable? Are these articles set out in a Schedule to any other Act? If one sees the duty on any one article, how can we be sure that it is a single duty without any built-in element?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Lower Rates of Customs Dutes on E.F.T.a Goods.) (15 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Are the articles set out in Table I of the First Schedule the only articles to which this argument relates, or are there numerous other articles? Would it not be better for the hon. Gentleman to submit a White Paper to the House of Commons showing all the specific articles involved?

Orders of the Day — Home Office Affairs (10 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: I congratulate the hon. Lady the Member for East Grinstead (Mrs. Emmet) on bringing before the Committee the particular subject of which she spoke, because to my certain knowledge there is on this issue very great misgiving among a large number of very humane and sympathetic people. I think that it is, perhaps, more a matter for public relations than for anything else, and that an arrangement...

Orders of the Day — Home Office Affairs (10 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: The figure of £10 million was generally stated at the time. It was a fairly big sum compared with what the nurses are likely to get. On to the constable's salary had to be added the differentials of each grade above until, when one came to what the chief constables would get, serious perturbation was created among the senior officers of county and county borough councils when they suddenly...

Orders of the Day — PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (9 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Does the hon. Member contend that pipelines are not at present liable to be assessed for rates?

Orders of the Day — Health Visitors and Social Workers Training Bill: Clause 2. — (Functions of Health Visitors Training Council.) (7 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: That was a disappointing answer, but I expected to be disappointed because I, too, have had some correspondence with the right hon. Gentleman on this matter. Of course, the proper Minister to answer is not the Minister of Health, but the Minister of Education. The buck has been passed by the Minister of Health to that absent Minister and I am afraid that we shall not hear anything from that...

Orders of the Day — Health Visitors and Social Workers Training Bill: Clause 2. — (Functions of Health Visitors Training Council.) (7 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: That is what I am saying and I thank the right hon. Gentleman for so speedy a confirmation of the view I am putting forward. It is, of course, one of the difficulties that arise. The position is that whenever an authority must consider new expenditure which is eligible for the general grant, it may have to discuss where it can cut down—perhaps on the fire brigade or some other service—to...

Orders of the Day — Health Visitors and Social Workers Training Bill: Clause 3. — (Functions of Social Workers Training Council.) (7 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Further to that point of order. I, for one, do not acquiesce in any such arrangement. I do not see why we should telescope two matters at two stages of the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Health Visitors and Social Workers Training Bill: Clause 3. — (Functions of Social Workers Training Council.) (7 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: I apologise for intervening in the discussion at this stage when I did not serve on the Committee. It seems to be the growing custom that, if one does not serve during the Committee stage of a Bill upstairs, one takes no further interest in the Measure. Unfortunately for me, I do not take that view of my duties. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] I am glad to hear that that finds some acceptance...

Orders of the Day — Health Visitors and Social Workers Training Bill: Clause 3. — (Functions of Social Workers Training Council.) (7 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: The experience which these authorities will have had as local education authorities is that the only way to deal satisfactorily with this matter is to have a pooling arrangement. Otherwise, one has exporting and importing authorities in this class of public servant. A number of local authorities will be training more people than they require in their own locality. Whether their salaries are...

Orders of the Day — Health Visitors and Social Workers Training Bill: Clause 2. — (Functions of Health Visitors Training Council.) (7 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Since I came to the House I have tried to convince Governments that training for one's livelihood is a legitimate part of education. I have always been met by the educational establishments with the plea that vocational training is not education. At last I have managed to persuade a Minister that I am right, but, unfortunately, I persuaded the wrong Minister.

Orders of the Day — Air Guns and Shot Guns, etc., Bill: Clause 1. — (Restrictions upon the Use and Possession of Air Weapons.) (4 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: I wish to speak merely on the question of the ages of 14 and 16. I apologise for not having been in the Chamber when the debate commenced, but that is the only point in which I have any interest. Several Parliamentary Sessions ago we discussed a Bill which dealt with some of the minor forms of gambling and the age at which young persons should be able to participate in them. The hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Air Guns and Shot Guns, etc., Bill: Clause 1. — (Restrictions upon the Use and Possession of Air Weapons.) (4 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: There is no reason why we should not make a start. It is the case that the best is so often the enemy of the good. When dealing with matters like fixing a minimum age at which they may possess and use an offensive weapon, we must bear in mind that we are dealing with young persons who are developing. I should like to see the minimum age of 16 applied generally. But I have not the general law...

Orders of the Day — NORTHERN IRELAND BILL [Lords] (1 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Before the hon. and learned Gentleman sits down, could he deal with the point raised by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Newport (Sir F. Soskice) about the qualification for jurors in Northern Ireland? Has the information for which my right hon. and learned Friend asked been yet obtained?

Transport Bill: Clause 58. — (Restrictions on Carriage by Road in London.) (18 Apr 1962)

Mr James Ede: This appears to be a game of snakes and ladders.

Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill: CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL (By Order) (3 Apr 1962)

Mr James Ede: Does my hon. Friend not know that but for the City of London spending a huge fortune in the 'sixties of the last century there would be no Epping Forest today?

WEST INDIES BILL [Lords]: Clause 3. — (Compensation Scheme for Officers of Federal Public Service.) (2 Apr 1962)

Mr James Ede: The hon. Gentleman cannot expect to get away like that from the statements made by my hon. Friend the Member for North-field (Mr. Chapman). After all, one sees laid out in the Library of the House of Lords the Petition of Right, with a rough edge along the bottom where the King had refused it. He was then advised that it was wrong to refuse it, so from the bottom of the Petition they cut his...

WEST INDIES BILL [Lords]: Clause 3. — (Compensation Scheme for Officers of Federal Public Service.) (2 Apr 1962)

Mr James Ede: It was refused by the Governor-General as the representative of the Monarch on the spot, a thing which has not been done in this country since the reign of Queen Anne, who certainly, so far as the West Indies are concerned, does not appear to be dead, in spite of what is commonly believed in this country. I am not questioning the constitutional right of the Governor-General to do that, but...
