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

Mr James Ede: At the commencement of his speech just now the Minister said that the two Amendments which he approached with trepidation were the one to which he was then about to reply and this. His fears about the last have been removed, and I have no doubt that the Chief Whip has this matter well in hand and the right hon. Gentleman can compose himself contentedly and allow the even flow of debate to go...

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

Mr James Ede: I was trying my best to be kindly to the right hon. Gentleman on the last Amendment. I admire the ruthless efficiency with which he is carrying the Bill through, but it is necessary to have these cases stated, for when we come to correct the Bill's many injustices, whether Clause 6 is invoked or not, whoever succeeds the right hon. Gentleman as spokesman for the party opposite should not be...

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

Mr James Ede: I am obliged to the right hon. Gentleman. He confirms what I had supposed would be the case. When we come to deal with Epsom and Ewell, we have to recognise that long before a Conservative Government interested themselves in the green belt, Epsom and Ewell had been engaged in creating one. There are more than 850 acres of land which the council has bought for inclusion in the green belt....

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

Mr James Ede: I have been informed that at one of the interviews between the Minister and representatives of Epsom and Ewell he said that statistics had not entered into it. I think it only fair to say that. Although I accept the hon. Member's argument, the Minister has never based his claim for grabbing these three wards on the fact that he wants the Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames to be viable.

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

Mr James Ede: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell me which strategic services the area will gain?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance [Money]: Clause 2. — (Amendments of National Insurance Act 1946.) (5 Feb 1963)

Mr James Ede: I add my plea to that made by so many hon. Members on both sides. On 25th January, I respected the hon. Member for Horsham (Mr. Gough) when he explained to the House that he had been brought up by a widowed mother, with, I understand, a brother, and told us from his personal recollection of the bravery of a woman who takes that job on. In my experience of talking with ordinary people,...

London Government Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: The Leader of the House paid me the compliment of alluding to my speech on Second Reading and saying that I was very near the truth. An hon. Friend of mine said that I was an expert witness. There is a well-known epigram which indicates that expert witnesses are very remote from the truth. All I did was to deal with the facts of the case. I got my copy of the Bill from the Vote Office. It...

London Government Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I would like to see my hon. Friend trying to use his blandishments on whoever may be the Leader of the next House. I know that the proposition is well-nigh irresistible but he would find that the irresistible force of my hon. Friend's bonhomie had reached the irremovable obstacle of Government necessity. People all over greater London will find themselves grouped with other people under this...

London Government Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I am sorry; I was so absorbed in the problem of 60,000 at one time in connection with the new communities that I forgot that I was temporarily alluding to the number of councillors who will be elected to the new bodies. I do not believe that there is any principle in that. I served on an urban district council of nine, which we increased to 12 and then to 18. Then the area was incorporated...

London Government Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I apologise, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I think that I have made the point that I wanted to make. What we want to get is a feeling all over this great area that although it is very difficult sometimes to find the physical boundaries, that we create a group of communities which can each be self-contained and yet play a vital part in the whole area. I regard this as the core of the Bill. I believe...

London Government Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: Has my hon. Friend forgotten the 17 Schedules, nearly each of which rewrites whole Acts of local government law?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (24 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I am not going to prophesy the result of the next General Election. I have fought too many elections ever to want to prophesy until the returning officer starts to read the return. I have my hopes about it. They are pretty high at the moment, but I leave that fact out of account in considering this matter, because we are here dealing with the question of the way in which, whether it be in...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (24 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: As the hon. Member has mentioned my name, may I say that I never supported the claims of Ilford for county borough status. [HON. MEMBERS: "Withdraw."]

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (24 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I thank the hon. Member for making that statement. I was blocking the Ilford Bill at 2.30 in the afternoons, and on one afternoon when it was called an hon, colleague of mine spoke to me, and I forgot to block the Bill. That is the most I have ever done for Ilford.

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I am wondering how it is possible to justify rejecting the idea behind the Amendment, because there is no doubt that a borough which has a charter has come into existence by a very different process from the metropolitan boroughs, which were once described to me by Lord Morrison of Lambeth, before he was ennobled, as being little better than glorified parish councils. The obtaining of a...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I still hope that they will be incorporated through the Privy Council, which is the essential part of incorporation in the rest of the country. It is securing the recognition by the Privy Council and, through the Privy Council's recommendation, by the Crown of the status and standard of the government that has been carried on in that area.

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: From my experience, what happens is that the various Government Departments are consulted. If they object on the ground that in their view a district has not been well governed, they can appear at the inquiry into incorporation and can state their views. I am certain that both sides of the House of Commons are anxious that in the new local government of Greater London we shall have the...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: My understanding is that the grant of a charter is the act of the Crown, which is advised by the Privy Council. The petition is presented to the Privy Council, which starts the whole of the proceedings going.

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: This comparatively trivial Amendment has now become the vehicle for a declaration of national policy. Let us be in no doubt about that. Many of us suspected that this was a try-out, not merely to murder the London County Council, but for a scheme to be applied throughout the country. If we are to be told as we go on to the discussion of orders elsewhere that this principle of a maximum is to...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr James Ede: I want to see a policymaking council. I also want a policymaking Government. The speech of the Minister a few minutes ago was a declaration of policy, which he purposely and plainly linked with the wide task that he will have to undertake in the provinces when this Measure has been disposed of. The whole of the argument in this debate, from speakers on the Government side as well as from...
