Orders of the Day — Education (27 Jan 1964)

Mr James Ede: Unlike many education debates in this House, we have had this afternoon several speeches mainly concerned with education and the active life of the schools. The hon. Member for Woking (Mr. van Straubenzee) has played a noteworthy part in emphasising the educational aspects of the problems which are put in front of us. I want particularly to commend what the Minister said about what he hopes...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Training Bill: Clause 11. — (Central Training Council.) (21 Jan 1964)

Mr James Ede: I support the Amendment. The most important part of a youth's preparation for his life's work consists in making a smooth transition between the school and whatever his occupation may be, so that it shall not be the plunge into a bath of cold water that it too often is now, in which the youth gets discouraged by finding himself in completely new surroundings having little connection with what...

James Hanratty (Trial) (2 Aug 1963)

Mr James Ede: I do not want to prevent the Home Secretary from having full time to deal with the arguments which have been advanced. Therefore, I shall not speak at great length. Of course, my views on this kind of case are pretty well known. We can never rule out the possibility of human error in anything in which human beings are engaged, and sometimes a human error may be in the advice learned counsel...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London boroughs.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: It has now been amply proved that discussion on the Amendment is pedantic. As a pedagogue, I object to anybody else being pedantic. I cannot understand what all the fury is about. Where the inhabitants of a district ask for a charter of incorporation, the demand goes to the Privy Council, which appoints an inspector. He goes along, hears the remarks of the various Government Departments...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 23. — (Transfer of Land Held for Housing Purposes.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: The Minister has moved this Amendment in so disarming a way that I intend to say nothing at this stage on the main object, as I think that reference to the main issue will be more appropriate when we come to the Schedule, and when effect is given to his announcement. I am, however, a little disappointed. I heard over the wireless, and I think that I subsequently saw in the Press, that line...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 23. — (Transfer of Land Held for Housing Purposes.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I find it credible that what I heard was not intended by the speaker.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 30. — (Local Education Authorities.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I support the Amendment. To some extent, it lessens the evils of the fragmentation of the education service effected by the Bill. It will enable, I am glad to say, a large number of children to be taught in accordance with the wishes of their parents, particularly when the religious issue is involved. I hope that it will be widely, wisely and firmly used by the authorities.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 31. — (Primary, Secondary and Further Education in Greater London.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I want to welcome the Amendment very warmly. Indeed, I believe that its wider application to the country as a whole would be a great blessing. A good deal of clerical work is performed in county and borough education offices merely to check up on the number of children who cross boundaries to attend school in neighbouring areas. I recall the ludicrous position I encountered once when I was...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 81. — (Supplementary and Transitional Provision.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: The right hon. Gentleman's speech will cause dismay throughout the local government services of the country, because under the 1958 Act we are reaching the stage when a number of reorganisation schemes will be brought forward. For instance, on Tyneside, part of which I have the honour to represent, there is a proposal that there should be four county boroughs, and that the work now performed...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 81. — (Supplementary and Transitional Provision.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I was assuming that the new town clerk would get the same salary as the old one.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 81. — (Supplementary and Transitional Provision.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: Having had to deal with the review of county districts in a county which had 33 local authorities, that was not how it worked out. That is not how the officials who came under the new arrangements were treated. I am certain that when what the right hon. Gentleman has said tonight is known, the tasks of reorganising London government in the various areas, under the schemes provided for by the...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (the London Boroughs.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: On 20th February about 7.30 p.m., in Committee of the whole House, I moved these Amendments. They were rejected by the Minister. We should have saved a great deal of time then and tonight if they had been carried. Earlier in the day the Minister announced that although he was still convinced that these wards ought to be moved out of the borough, he had decided to leave them in, for motives...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Categories of Children Not to Be Sent to an Approved School.) (23 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I apologise to my Scottish colleagues for intruding—

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Categories of Children Not to Be Sent to an Approved School.) (23 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: —in a debate initiated by them about the affairs of Scotland, but I am pleased to find at least two other Members of my own calling who do not think that truancy is a crime—and certainly not a crime on the part of the truant.

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Categories of Children Not to Be Sent to an Approved School.) (23 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I always feel far better with an audience of about this size because I realise the truth of Milton's description of the audience Satan had when he said fit audience find, though few". As a teacher I would have regarded a truant as a reflection on me rather than as a reflection on himself. In these days there is ample opportunity, although there is still much to be desired, to make a school a...

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure, 1963 (16 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: Did my hon. Friend, the Member for Islington, East (Mr. Fletcher) mean by that that in certain circumstances an appointment to the judicial bench might depend upon the religious convictions of the person proposed to be appointed?

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure, 1963 (16 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: My hon. Friend dealt with the case where three communicant members of the Church of England could not be found on the appropriate judicial bench, and he then said that there would have to be some arrangement by which such a person could be appointed.

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure, 1963 (16 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman sure that there is a definition in the words "communicant members of the Church of England" that can be tested, or are we to assume that anyone with an income of more than£1,000 a year is a member of the Church of England?

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure, 1963 (16 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I take the view in regard to this Measure and its progress through the House which was generally stated in, if I may say so, most admirable terms by the hon. Member for Wimbledon (Sir C. Black). He said that he had received some letters from constituents on this Measure. Although I have not received any letters from my constituents, I had an interview, at his request, with the bishop of the...

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure, 1963 (16 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: We are now dealing with another matter.
