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

Mr James Ede: I support the Amendment wholeheartedly. When I was Secretary of State I had on occasion brought to my notice boroughs in which wards had been fixed many years before and which had remained unaltered although the distribution of the electorate proportionally between the wards had very considerably changed as a result of the passage of time and the creation of new residential areas in a...

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

Mr James Ede: Can the Under-Secretary of State point to the words in the Bill on which he bases his statement that what he described to us is, in fact, the procedure under the Bill? I gather that he said that he had been present at some conversations which were held. It would be no good an aggrieved citizen going to the courts or complaining to his Member of Parliament that he was not present at the...

Business of the House (20 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: The Leader of the House said that he would give two days, in the week when we come back, to the Committee stage of the London Government Bill. In view of the wide and detailed discussions that must take place, does he expect to get Clause 1 and the First Schedule in Committee of the whole House in those two days?

British Museum Bill (20 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: I should like to make an explanation about the tribute, of which I am quite unworthy, which the Chief Secretary paid to me in listing the present trustees. I owe it to the House and to my colleagues who are trustees. When I became Home Secretary, in 1945, I had no idea that that would make me a trustee of the British Museum. I doubt whether many holders of the office have known that they...

British Museum Bill (20 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: I did not say that.

British Museum Bill (20 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: I am not at all sure that it is not the effect on the wife. The wife's influence over the husband is sometimes unnecessarily strong.

Church of England (14 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: Hear, hear.

Church of England (14 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: And Northern Ireland as well.

Church of England (14 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: Burning while Rome fiddles?

Church of England (14 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: I join with the hon. Member for Wokingham (Mr. van Straubenzee) in what he said about the wav in which this debate has been conducted. I looked forward to hearing the debate with some anxiety, but there has been very little said in the course of it that could give any of us cause to regret that the hon. Member for Armagh (Mr. Maginnis) took the fortune of the Ballot to put his Motion down. It...

Church of England (14 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: No. It is the word "adhere" which, in my view, does not truly represent the present situation in that context. I believe that in the living Church itself the members who are openly and delayed active members are the people who should settle all matters of doctrine. When it comes to ecclesiasticism, one is entitled to see that such a machine is created as can enable everyone to see that that...

London Government Bill (11 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: I intend to make a short speech on what is the most tremendous Bill I have ever been faced with in this House. Here we have 205 pages in a Bill divided into nine Parts, with 86 Clauses and 17 Schedules. If ever a Bill was introduced marked by the Chief Whip for speedy transport by the tumbrels to the Guillotine, this is the Bill. I dislike being faced with a Measure on which I do not think...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Marlow Bridge (5 Dec 1962)

Mr James Ede: Will the right hon. Gentleman consult those who pass under the bridge as well as those who go over it? There is a serious hindrance to the proper navigation of the Thames.

Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act, 1921 (14 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: I find it very difficult to vote for this Motion. I know that when this Tribunal has completed its task and sends its report to the House it will have the same reception as the last three reports have had, that is to say, regret on the part of responsible people who took part in the debate that this instrument is so blunt that in the end no clear-cut decision is possible. A good deal has...

Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act, 1921 (14 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: "It was, "Grosvenor House, Dinner by Stanley. Guest of honour J. Chuter Ede". I said, "I cannot recollect anything which corresponds with that".

Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act, 1921 (14 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: I went to my private secretary the next morning and said, "Have you any recollection of my ever going to Grosvenor House at the invitation of Mr. Stanley? He replied, "Sir, you do not think that we should let you accept such an invitation, do you?" I hope that that man, who is now of considerable eminence in the Department, will not get into trouble for having so wisely vindicated the honour...

Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act, 1921 (14 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: That may not be the one I am talking about.

Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act, 1921 (14 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: It is clear that my hon. Friend attends Grosvenor House more often than I do. I go there only when Surrey celebrate winning the cricket championship. I recollect that Stuart Surridge said, "I cannot see where you are sitting. I have forgotten where we have put you". I replied, "I can see it. I shall sit exactly opposite that large jug of orange squash. That is always put in front of me when I...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (9 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: I have to declare an interest in this matter, and also to apologise to the House in that I did not discover that interest until it was brought to my attention by the Ministry of Education in January, 1961. Therefore, I have been present in the House when previous Bills have been discussed, and, although I never took any part in the discussions, I did not at that time disclose that interest....

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (9 Nov 1962)

Mr James Ede: There are some secrets that I would not share even with my right hon. Friend, but I managed to do it. Then, the next year the Surrey County Council reduced the' scale of salaries from £90—£130 by £5 increases to £90 —£125. I just mention that to show that some of these very old servants of public authorities, whether national or local, had to encounter difficulties with regard to...
