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

Mr James Ede: Certainly, but I was thinking of what would be regarded as high-powered gaming in any social group. If there is a fat pigeon strutting about who is worth plucking, this is precisely the sort of inquiry which the hon. Member for Kidderminster intimated he thought would be excused under the Bill. He thought that there would be no inquiry into the way in which that person was lured into a...

Royal Commission on the Police (Report) (9 May 1963)

Mr James Ede: We have had a very useful day's discussion, all the more useful because it has proceeded on the basis which the Home Secretary suggested in opening—that we should not dig ourselves into entrenched positions, but should have a broad and general discussion in which hon. Members from their diverse experiences would be able frankly to state their views about the problems which the right hon....

Orders of the Day — Contracts of Employment Bill: Clause 2. — (the Rights of Employee in Period of Notice.) (1 May 1963)

Mr James Ede: As one who was not a member of the Standing Committee on the Bill, I find it very difficult indeed to follow the argument we have been having on this Amendment. That is not because I am unappreciative of the speech which has been made by the Parliamentary Secretary, but I would have thought that, in a matter of this importance, in trying to draft a Measure to prevent unnecessary disputes from...

Orders of the Day — Contracts of Employment Bill: Clause 2. — (the Rights of Employee in Period of Notice.) (1 May 1963)

Mr James Ede: Oh, no. Two knowledgeable men can have very violent and deep-seated views on the same subject and yet differ completely. If that were not the case, there would be no employment for lawyers. If we are not very careful, we may pass this Schedule in the hope that it will mean what each of us thinks it means, and we may then find, if it goes before the courts, that views which have not been...

Orders of the Day — Contracts of Employment Bill: Clause 2. — (the Rights of Employee in Period of Notice.) (1 May 1963)

Mr James Ede: I am sorry that the hon. Gentleman should have thought that anything I said was an intimation that I regarded him as inadequate. In view of the complexities which have been raised, I think that he has shown himself exceedingly competent, because he has expressly denied any legal training and knowledge, and at that stage that is what we want. I hope that in another place some of the problems...

Orders of the Day — Remuneration of Teachers Bill (25 Apr 1963)

Mr James Ede: I wish, firstly, to express my full support of the line of argument taken by my hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey). He stated with a frankness that is highly necessary in this matter the exact point of view from which those who wish to see the education administration of this country carried on under the provisions laid down in the 1944 Act must regard the present...

Orders of the Day — Remuneration of Teachers Bill (25 Apr 1963)

Mr James Ede: My experience justifies me in doing what I have done.

School Building and Teacher Shortage (26 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: It is true that I quoted it, but I never said that believed it.

Grants for the Arts (20 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: My hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Dr. Stross), the hon. Baronet the Member for Cambridge (Sir H. Kerr) and the hon. Member for the Isle of Thanet (Mr. Rees-Davies) all mentioned in the course of their speeches the pointer that this Estimate gives to us as to the future of the proper patronage of the arts. Only one of those hon. Members, however, made any constructive...

Prison Commissioners (Dissolution) (12 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: I was very glad to hear the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Chesterfield (Sir G. Benson), because but for a speech of his, fifteen years ago, the Prison Commissioners would have been abolished then. I am glad to know that after waiting fifteen years he has accepted the advice given to him then which at that time he rejected. This idea of Commissioners is a nineteenth century idea. In...

Prison Commissioners (Dissolution) (12 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: My hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Mr. V. Yates) should judge how much a consolation that will be. In this Motion we are dealing with the fundamentals of our modern Parliamentary Government. I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on bringing forward this proposal, because from now onwards there will be no doubt as to who is responsible for anything that occurs in the prison...

Prison Commissioners (Dissolution) (12 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: May I say to my hon. Friend that when I was Home Secretary I paid a surprise visit to Dartmoor. When I announced who I was at the wicket gate the man behind the window said, "Oh yeah!"

Prison Commissioners (Dissolution) (12 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: I did not say that.

Orders of the Day — Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Bill: New Clause. — (Appeal from Refusal of Court to Make Order.) (6 Mar 1963)

Mr James Ede: I understand the main argument adduced by the Parliamentary Secretary was to the effect that finality should be reached if the case goes one way at the lowest court. Are we certain that finality will be reached there? If the local authority is seriously aggrieved by a decision, is it not possible that it will ask to have a case stated for consideration by a higher court; which would be a...

Orders of the Day — CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS BILL [Lords] (27 Feb 1963)

Mr James Ede: Like every other hon. Member who has addressed the House on this Bill, I welcome it. I listened with great attention to what the hon. and learned Member for Billericay (Mr. Gardner) said. I would say to him that I have had my own misgivings about the age below which criminal responsibility should not be expected of a child. The curious thing is that whereas the hon. and learned Member appears...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimate for the Ministry of Defence, 1963–64: BRITISH RAILWAYS BILL (By Order) (26 Feb 1963)

Mr James Ede: I am sure that we must all agree that my right hon. Friend the Member for West Bromwich (Mr. Dugdale) has rendered a service to the House by raising this matter and thus enabling us to have such an interesting and informative discussion. We are also greatly indebted to the Parliamentary Secretary. I sometimes wonder what the Ministry of Transport would be like if he were not there and what...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Schedule 1. — (the London Boroughs.) (20 Feb 1963)

Mr James Ede: What has the Minister agreed with regard to Epsom and Ewell? I have not heard anything from him.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Schedule 1. — (the London Boroughs.) (20 Feb 1963)

Mr James Ede: I support the Amendment. I have lived in the neighbourhood of these two districts all my life and for the past twenty years I have been a representative of the Surrey magistracy on a wealthy and important foundation in the County Borough of Croydon. In that capacity I am, as it were, a part of the ground landlord of the most prosperous part of the county borough. In the course of discharging...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Schedule 1. — (the London Boroughs.) (20 Feb 1963)

Mr James Ede: I beg to move, in page 90, line 10, column 2, to leave out from "Surbiton" to the end of line 13.
