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

Mr James Ede: I wish to raise a point about the reply given by the Financial Secretary to the hon. Member for Wimbledon (Sir C. Black). The Financial Secretary said that if he found he had given his hon. Friend an answer that was not quite correct he would write to him. Is this a Money Bill or not? I do not know whether the Attorney-General would be willing to advise us on that point at this moment...

New Clause. — (Amendments as to Applications for Street Trading Licences etc.) (26 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: I hope that some weight will be given to the suggestions which my hon. Friend the Member for Fulham (Mr. M. Stewart) made at the end of his speech. I am inclined to reach the opposite conclusion on the Clause, because if we have this admittedly inadequate Clause put into the Bill we shall not be able to remedy the major injustices for a good time to come. I can think of nothing more...

CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL (By Order) (26 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: My hon. and learned Friend the Member for West Ham, South (Mr. Elwyn Jones) said that fresh evidence is now available. Was it not available when the Committee considered this matter? Is this not another way of saying that the various local authorities backed the wrong horse at the time and now they would like representations which they could have presented before—at some cost to themselves,...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Power of Local Authority to Contribute to Preservation of Historic Buildings.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: I beg to move, in page 1, line 14, to leave out from the beginning to "contribute" in line 15. The Amendment raises the issue whether, in conferring upon local authorities the powers under the Bill, it should be necessary to place them further under the surveillance of the Minister of Housing and Local Government. As one who was first elected to a local authority in 1908 and has had a close...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Power of Local Authority to Contribute to Preservation of Historic Buildings.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: I do not want my hon. Friend to get my biography wrong. I was first elected to a local council in April, 1908, and I understand, therefore, that my hon. Friend was alive at that time. I have never served on any council in Mitcham.

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Power of Local Authority to Contribute to Preservation of Historic Buildings.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: May I point out to the hon. Member that the Government Department which was eulogised by my hon. Friend the Member for Widnes (Mr. MacColl) for its advice was not the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, but the Ministry of Works?

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Power of Local Authority to Contribute to Preservation of Historic Buildings.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: I thank hon. Members on both sides for their kindly references to me—at least, I think that they were meant to be kindly. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] However, a person reaches a stage when he does not desire to be reminded of how long he has been wandering about. I thank the Parliamentary Secretary for his explanation about the way in which the Bill will be administered. I share the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Power of Local Authority to Contribute to Preservation of Historic Buildings.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: I am quite sure that every member of the Committee would desire to express their thanks to the hon. Member for Buckinghamshire, South (Mr. Ronald Bell) for the legal advice he has given us this morning. I notice that the Parliamentary Secretary is in touch with the representative of the Whip's Department. I hope that the Parliamentary Secretary has suggested to that gentleman that the next...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Recovery of Grants on Disposal of Property within Three Years.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: I regard the debate on this new Clause as being held in the realm of unreality. I heard the figure of £10,000 mentioned as being the amount of a grant likely to be made under the Bill when it becomes an Act. Quite frankly, I do not expect that any grant of that amount will be made. I think that when figures of that kind come into the calculation it ought to be understood that it is a matter...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Recovery of Grants on Disposal of Property within Three Years.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: The hon. Gentleman and I have had plenty of local government experience in Surrey, and there are plenty of ways of avoiding loan sanction. One could, for instance, mortgage the sewage plant, and the Ministry would have no power to deal with one. There are plenty of ways round that. I hope that the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, if approached under Clause 1 (1, b) for sanction to...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Power of Local Authority to Contribute to Preservation of Historic Buildings.) (1 Jun 1962)

Mr James Ede: Britain, and particularly England, is not a museum. It is the home of a living and developing people who have a great history and who, with a bit of luck, may have a tremendous future. It would be wrong for me at this stage to indicate which is the quickest way to secure the latter end. I join in congratulating the hon. Member for Southend, West (Mr. Channon) on the courtesy and ability with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Abolition of Pool Betting Duty on Bets on Dog Racecourses.) (30 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: I support the new Clause. I do not think that one can defend any discrimination in this matter between one form of organised gambling and another. To attempt to do it is to attempt the impossible. There is only one discrimination that I know much about. My hon. Friend the Member for West Ham, North (Mr. A. Lewis) tells me that he can bet on the totalisator at a greyhound racing track for 2s....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Abolition of Pool Betting Duty on Bets on Dog Racecourses.) (30 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Oh, no. I have had a good deal to do with racing tracks and there is no discrimination on the ground of class. My hon. Friend runs the same risk as I do when he enjoys his sport and there can be no justification for continuing the present discrimination. It can be altered in more than one way, but the Government ought to find some way of ending it.

New Clause — (Income Tax and Profits Tax (Penalties and Assessments).) (29 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: In his original explanation, the right hon. and learned Gentleman said that the first subsection which my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Stoke Newington and Hackney, North (Mr. Weitzman) quoted made something plain, and at another stage he said that it made it clear. All I wish to say—and I hope that the right hon. and learned Gentleman will take it as a compliment, as it is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Local Government Reorganisation (Essex) (22 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: Will the Minister put somewhere in the House a map showing the effect of the alterations which he announced last Friday so that they can be checked?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 8. — (Increase of Reliefs for Small Incomes.) (21 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: I support the Amendment. I wish that I could speak with the same passion as did my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff, South-East (Mr. Callaghan), because I feel it, but am reluctant to give way to that kind of thing in the Committee, since it is apt to be misunderstood. My hon. Friend did justice to the case in the language he used. Last week, whenever an hon. Member on this side of the...

Thailand and Laos (17 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: The Prime Minister has told us not merely that consent will be given, but which arm of the Services will be used; that he has had conversations with the Australians and New Zealanders, and we know that another ally of ours has already, as I understand, landed troops in Thailand. Therefore, it is quite clear that Her Majesty's Government have made very detailed arrangements, in consultation...

Orders of the Day — Education (17 May 1962)

Mr James Ede: No one would accuse the hon. Member for Bournemouth, West (Mr. Eden) of a sloppy, sentimental outlook on the problems with which we are dealing. I want to deal with two or three of the points which he raised. I happen to be the governor of three independent schools. One is half-residential, half-day. The fees for the residential boys are £410 a year. I am the governor of another independent...
