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

Mr James Ede: My hon. Friend did bring it up as a reason for accepting this Measure, that it was not divided against in the Church Assembly. We are sometimes asked in our constituencies why we gave a certain vote. It is always very convenient to say, "As a matter of fact, there was not a vote on that issue" or, "I did not vote", or, "If there was a Division I did not vote in it". That is what I call a...

British Army (MR. G. H. Gilmour) (12 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: His official age?

Clause 79. — (Provision of facilities FOR RECREATION ON RESERVOIR.) (8 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: Surely the great advantage that Montgomeryshire will get from this reservoir, which we are told is to cost £4½ million, is a hugely increased rateable value. Radnorshire gets about 60 per cent. of its rates from the Birmingham Corporation because of the Elan Valley reservoir. Montgomeryshire, while I do not think it will get 60 per cent., will get a considerable addition to its rateable...

Clause 79. — (Provision of facilities FOR RECREATION ON RESERVOIR.) (8 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I would advise my hon. and learned Friend to consult his hon. Friends who represent Radnorshire about the advantage, from the municipal point of view, of being able to extract so much of their rates from the Corporation of Birmingham on one rate demand note.

Orders of the Day — CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Adjustment Between Local Authorities of Expenses of Maintaining Persons in Remand Homes.) (5 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: I sympathise with the right hon. Gentleman in the fluctuations which occur in the statistics about the need for this sort of accommodation. In the late 1940s there was a similar drop in the demand, and we were even able to close some institutions. Then, with no apparent reason being available to convince one that the tide had turned, there was a sudden increase in the demand. Apparently the...

Orders of the Day — CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Adjustment Between Local Authorities of Expenses of Maintaining Persons in Remand Homes.) (5 Jul 1963)

Mr James Ede: He is a man who takes a great interest in the juvenile life of the borough. He is prominently connected with the Boys Brigade movement. Apart from politics, he is eminently to be commended for his interest in the juvenile life of the place. When he speaks as quoted by my hon. Friend the Member for Salford, West, it reveals a state of affairs on which I hope the Home Secretary will be able...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Exemption from Duty of Certain Cars for Invalids.) (26 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: While the Economic Secretary was speaking, I could not help feeling that it is a pity that he has such an unprepossessing title for the office which he holds. It seemed to me that he felt, with the rest of the House, that here was something which, in the name of humanity, ought to be done, yet he had to raise the kind of objections which we know have to be met. I know one man in my...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Information as to Gaming.) (26 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: I have been a member of clubs affiliated to the Working Men's Club and Institute Union for 62 years. On the day I was demobilised after the First World War I was elected president of the local branch of the then organisation known as the National Association of Discharged and Demobilised Sailors and Soldiers. One of the first things they did was to enter into an arrangement to purchase a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Information as to Gaming.) (26 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: I thank the hon. Member very much for that intervention. I am sure that many anxieties will be relieved by such an assurance from him, and I hope that it will enable the information which is required for the Government's purpose to be obtained. There is always a fear that when one offers information to authorities it may be used for purposes other than those for which one tendered it. I want...

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: Would not this mean an alteration in the entry in the Official Report when a person holding a courtesy title is sworn in? I have here the entry at the beginning of this Parliament when the present Lord Sandwich was sworn in. It reads: Alexander Victor Edward Paulet Montagu, esquire"— thus ranking him as a commoner, but goes on— commonly called Viscount Hinchingbrooke, South...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Orders as to Remuneration.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: The case for the Amendment has been so well argued by my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Central (Mr. Short), my hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Itchen (Dr. King) and the hon. Member for Bedfordshire, South (Mr. Cole) that I do not intend to go over the quite irresistible arguments in logic that they have addressed to the right hon. Gentleman. On the last Amendment he...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Orders as to Remuneration.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: That is an adequate punishment for the Minister. I am glad to hear it. What appals me about the whole Bill is the way in which the right hon. Gentleman seems to regard the present state of the education service as something that is likely to go on for a considerable time. As one who has given the whole of his life to the education service—first as teacher, then as administrator and...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Orders as to Remuneration.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: I apologise for speaking again, but I cannot accept the doctrine that if an absolute injustice is avoided we ought to be satisfied. I cannot understand that line of argument at all. I hope that the right hon. Gentleman will listen to the plea made by my hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey), because I regard with the utmost apprehension the effect on the recruitment of...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: New Clause. — (Repeal of Section 89 of Education Act 1944.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: For the sake of greater accuracy I have obtained a copy of Section 89 of the Education Act, 1944. I think that the definition given by the Parliamentary Secretary was rather too narrow, and I hope that I might be allowed to read what I regard as the relevant portions of the Section. I had the advantage of being Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education at the time when this Act was...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: New Clause. — (Repeal of Section 89 of Education Act 1944.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: I am not disputing your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, but Section 89 provided for the creation of committees. It is a duty placed on the Minister to establish these committees, and I was trying to show how the original complex system of committees was gradually reduced until we had one committee which dealt with all grades of schools maintained by local education authorities. I do not want to...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: New Clause. — (Repeal of Section 89 of Education Act 1944.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: Yes—collective bargaining. On the whole the system has worked well, until the last three Ministers, including the present one, experienced some difficulties. Prior to that there was no serious dispute about the working of Section 89. But for the interference of Ministers there would have been little to complain of up to the present time. It is true that certain organisations on both...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: New Clause. — (Repeal of Section 89 of Education Act 1944.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr James Ede: I think that it would go on working. It is astonishing how vitality remains in the most dilapidated sort of structure. I have no doubt that it could go on working. Whether it would work well is another matter. But, clearly, at some stage the approval of the Minister has to be obtained, because this Clause would place on the Minister the duty of making an order when he has approved the scale,...

Chief Enahoro (15 May 1963)

Mr James Ede: The right hon. and learned Member for Huntingdonshire (Mr. Renton) did me the honour of quoting something which I said in 1947. I have not altered my opinions on the matter raised in any way since that time. I do not intend to get involved in a legalistic argument. This is the position. This Chief is in the jurisdiction of this House. The Minister responsible for his health and safety is...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Information as to Gaming.) (14 May 1963)

Mr James Ede: In view of the Economic Secretary's speech, it would be churlish to do other than say that one appreciates the attitude he has adopted towards bringing this matter before the Committee by means of starred Amendments. Until I opened the Notice Paper today and saw these starred Amendments, I had no idea that this subject was likely to arise in the form it has in the course of our discussions...
