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

Mr James Ede: I should prefer no magistrates at all, but my hon. Friend has deprived me of a chance of voting for that proposal.

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

Mr James Ede: I find the scheme unworkable. It might interfere with the working of the courts as well as with the working of the police authority. All the members of the police authority are to be members of the appointing authority, but a number not exceeding one-third of the total number of members of the police committee selects members of the council who are magistrates. There are plenty of county...

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

Mr James Ede: Hands them the card, yes. I had a woman in front of me in court and he handed her the card and she said, "The evidence I shall give should be the truth." He said, "Undoubtedly, madam. Now read the words on the card." We have to bear in mind that to attempt to put the usher in the most solemn place of all, the person who administers the oath, is to take a completely wrong view of the way in...

Orders of the Day — Police Bill (12 Mar 1964)

Mr James Ede: This is the sort of difficulty we get into when the committee of a local authority has been constituted the police authority, and throughout our discussions on this Bill we have never quite clearly defined the exact relationship between these two separate bodies, each of which is an authority. Very often the standing orders of a local authority deal with what is to happen on the committees of...

Orders of the Day — Harbours Bill: Clause 1. — (the National Ports Council.) (4 Mar 1964)

Mr James Ede: I support the Amendment in the names of my hon. Friends because of the experiences I had some years ago when on occasion I found myself in office having some disputes with the dockers about the continuation of their labour. Dockers live in a very segregated community. I do not think that many people would live in the area unless they were dockers. They have a long history of solidarity and...

Orders of the Day — Protection of Birds Act 1954 (Amendment) Bill (28 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: In fact, I am wearing it to keep warm.

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (28 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: Would they have power of arrest and will it be confined to traffic offences?

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (28 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: My hon. Friend the Member for Islington, East (Mr. Fletcher), my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, South-East (Miss Bacon) —who was with us earlier—and 47 other hon. Members have been spending some 18 mornings recently in considering the Police Bill in Committee. On Tuesday last the hon. Member for Keighley (Mr. Worsley) moved a new Clause which appears suspiciously to be a condensation...

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (28 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: I managed to get a copy of the Report of the proceedings, but in view of what you have said, Mr. Speaker, I will not further allude to it. I understood when the Police Bill was introduced that it was an effort to bring within one Bill the whole of the law relating to the organisation and control of the police in this country. If we could do that it would be a very great advantage. I do not...

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (28 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: Therefore, for some things there will be two sets of policemen and for other things there will be two separate forces dealing with different parts of the conduct of the public in this important matter. I do not think that that will add to the efficiency of the policing of the roads of the country, and I certainly would never contemplate the creating of a special force outside the police force...

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (28 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: Has the hon. Gentleman noticed that if two people on the carriageway have both taken alcohol, neither of them is to be prosecuted because they are not unaccompanied?

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Bill (20 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: I am glad that the hon. Member for the Isle of Ely (Sir H. Legge-Bourke) asked that question, because it showed the limited nature of the opportunities that we shall have of knowing precisely what we are doing if this Bill goes forward to a further stage. Part C of Schedule 2 of the Emergency Laws (Repeal) Act, 1959, is the Measure that the hon. Member wants us to make permanent. Let us...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Bill (20 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: I said that I know from my own experience the pleasure that the Army gets on occasions when men are taken off the barrack square and put on to something that is useful and productive.

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Bill (20 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: I have not said anything that could be taken in that light. I have no doubt that if an emergency arose and Part C of Schedule 2 was put into operation, it would be received by those troops who come under it as a very welcome change from ordinary Army life. I cannot see that that has anything to do with restricting recruiting. I can think of many other things that would cheer up recruiting,...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Bill (20 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: I should like to see the kind of Amendment introduced which would carry out what the hon. Member wants to do—an Amendment with the phrases that I have read out put into the new Measure. I suggest that the reference should be withdrawn in its present form and the words that I have read out repealed in this Bill and words to take their place put in as an Amendment in Committee. That, I...

Orders of the Day — CRIMINAL APPEAL BILL [Lords] (13 Feb 1964)

Mr James Ede: On a point of order. I have always understood that the only time that Members of another place can be quoted in a debate in this House is when a member of the Government has made a statement in the other place. The Lord Chief Justice, eminent as he is—I do not seek to dispute the weight that has been placed on his views—is not a member of the Government. It would be a terrifying thing if...

Orders of the Day — Family Allowances and National Insurance Bill: Clause 4. — (Relaxation of Earnings Rules for Widow's Benefit and Retirement Pensions.) (30 Jan 1964)

Mr James Ede: I have always admired the Minister but I do not think that I have ever admired him more than I have tonight. I meet a good many widows who want to argue with me about this matter. I listen to what they have to say. Then, as a rule, I have to point out to them that under the law they are not entitled to a pension. That, of course, is a perfect answer so far as concerns anything practical being...

Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords] (29 Jan 1964)

Mr James Ede: This is the kind of Bill which I always read with considerable alarm. It deals with a service which has been well established and in which I participated to some extent in the past. It makes drastic alterations by means of Clauses which seem to bristle with points of administrative difficulty. It comes as a sequel to the London Government Act for which I never found it possible to say a good...

Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords] (29 Jan 1964)

Mr James Ede: May I suggest that an inquiry should be made of Her Majesty's lieutenants and the chairmen of advisory committees in the boroughs of how often the person whom it is desired to appoint is unable to accept the appointment, so that someone who is not at the head of the list of appointments is made a magistrate? Is not this the greatest danger?

Orders of the Day — Education (27 Jan 1964)

Mr James Ede: Hear, hear.
