Orders of the Day — Birmingham Mental Hospital Committee (Former Chairman) (30 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: In the whole of this debate we have not heard the terms of the tribunal. I have been waiting to hear them, and I hope that the Minister will tell us what they were.

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: The hon. Member for Sunderland, South (Mr. P. Williams), to whom I listened with great attention and, I hope that I shall not offend him in saying, with great approval, complimented hon. Members on the fact that there had been no moaning about the position of the North-East. I am sorry for him that the hon. and gallant Member for The Hartlepools (Commander Kerans) has, at any rate from that...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill (20 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: These Amendments are very complicated when one has not served on the Standing Committee. When detailed Amendments are made in another place, one has to try to fit the new arrangements into the Bill and see what one has at the end. I thank the Parliamentary Secretary for his care in explaining the matter to us. Is this the last this House will hear of this arrangement? I gather from what he...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill (20 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: Does it mean that any waterway taken over by the Board can be closed only by an Act of Parliament relieving the Board from obligations imposed by the Clause we are considering?

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill (20 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: I do not admire the other place as my right hon. Friend the Member for Vauxhall (Mr. Strauss) does.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Trosley Towers, Kent (Proposed Development) (19 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this matter has been outstanding for a very long time, and that the preservation of the skyline of the North Downs is a matter which should be decided very quickly?

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Defence in Certain Proceedings Against Holder of Carrier's Licence.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: I support my hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey (Mr. Mellish) in his oppo- sition to the Clause. My experience as a magistrate tells me that here is a wonderful phrase to discuss in the magistrates' room after the employer's counsel has done his best. The hon. Member for Truro (Mr. G. Wilson) says that "all due diligence" is a phrase of which the draftsmen are very fond—

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Defence in Certain Proceedings Against Holder of Carrier's Licence.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: That does not impress me very much. Most of the discussions I have heard in the magistrates' room have been about just that sort of phrase. The hon. Member for Bedfordshire, South (Mr. Cole) gave us his view of what due diligence is. I suppose that it amounts to putting up a notice in the works; impressing on a man, when first employed, that his employer expects him never to break the law at...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Defence in Certain Proceedings Against Holder of Carrier's Licence.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: That is as good an answer as can be given to the hon. Member. The enforcement of the traffic laws depends on the willingness of magistrates to convict, and anyone who has sat as a magistrate on a bench consisting half of motorists and half of non-motorists knows how long can be the argument on the most trivial point. The words of the Clause must have some meaning. They do not say that the...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Defence in Certain Proceedings Against Holder of Carrier's Licence.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: Unfortunately, that is the one thing the advocate does not leave to his client; he insists on trying to find out for himself. Our experience before the present law was enacted should make us very anxious not to reform it in the way suggested here. If the magistrates find the case proved, but it appears to them that the employee has let the employer down, they can always indicate their view...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (REPEAL OF s.1. OF 8 & 9 ELIZ, 2 c.16.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: I always get very suspicious when lawyers start talking about the illogicality of the law. I have never been so oppressed by that argument as I was when, towards the end of his speech, my hon. Friend the Member for Derby, North (Mr. MacDermot) got into a "spirit of logic" by suggesting that what is now regarded as the minor offence should carry the same penalties as that which he is...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: I intended to start by congratulating the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on surviving yesterday, but I am not at all sure that he does not feel that the former Secretary of State for Scotland is in a happier position than foe is at the moment, except that the Minister of Agriculture was not here on 8th June and, therefore, the speech then was made by the...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: Epsom Downs. It is a terrible thing to see a Scotsman struggling with his conscience, and that is what we have just seen. At some stage in the proceedings after the Bill had left this House the Government became conscience-smitten in that they had broken international law. They discovered this all of a sudden. Then, in another place, in circumstances which prevented us from having an...

Orders of the Day — Education, Scotland (10 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: Hear, hear.

PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: That is an absolute invitation to obstruct.

KENT RIVER BOARD (HARBOUR OF RYE) BILL [Lords] (By Order) (9 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: It is a lot of money.

Finance Bill (3 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: I thank my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) for the last few sentences of his speech, because they bring us back to the origin of the modern world, When Sir Francis Bacon defeated the school men in the universities and insisted on the discussion of real things in argument and their application to the daily lives of the people. That is the only real basis on...

Finance Bill (3 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: So long as they repudiate Aristotle as the source of all scientific knowledge.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 13. — (Disposals of Land Effected Indirectly.) (2 Jul 1962)

Mr James Ede: While agreeing with my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison), I should like to point out that at last the Government have come down on the side of defining something which they resisted doing for a considerable time. The Financial Secretary to the Treasury was not here when we had that discussion in which the right hon. and learned Attorney-General played a major...
