Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Retired Civil Servants (Employment) (13 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Does not the Prime Minister feel that the figures quoted by my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley (Mr. Mason) about the number of civil servants who have left a single Ministry, the Ministry of Aviation, within the two-year period are very striking? Does he not feel that that merits some investigation? I appreciate that this is a difficult problem, but does not the right hon. Gentleman think...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Minister of Defence (Speech, Western European Union) (13 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: May we have clarification of what exactly is meant by a European nuclear deterrent and a N.A.T.O. nuclear deterrent, because it seems to me that judgment on this must depend on what exactly is envisaged, and nobody seems to know.

Business of the House (13 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: May I ask the Leader of the House whether he will state the business of the House for next week?

Business of the House (13 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Can the Leader of the House say on which day the Minister of Defence will be making a statement on Skybolt and his discussions with Mr. McNamara?

European Economic Community (13 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: The right hon. Gentleman knows perfectly well that this is totally inadequate, because it comes into operation only if the figures of Indian exports fall below the 1959–60 level, which amounted to about £1 million for the whole of the E.E.C., as against £13 million here; but India wants to increase her exports in +textiles so that she can develop,her country, and that is why it is totally...

European Economic Community (13 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Will the right hon. Gentleman clear up one point about which my right hon. Friend asked? It is about the tariff-free quotas. Can he say whether in general or in specific cases the quotas are temporary or permanent? What is the intention of the Six?

Royal Commissions (Procedure) (12 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: May I thank you, Mr. Speaker, on behalf of my right hon. and hon. Friends, for your historical researches, and say that, so far as I am concerned, I am not tremendously impressed by the precedent of 1781. Nevertheless, I do not honestly think it worth while making a tremendous fuss about this particular issue. If we can avoid the kind of situation which arose on Prorogation recently and on an...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Guiana: Minister of Housing and Local Government (Speech) (11 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Would it not be dealt with quite simply by the Cardiff City Council, which made loans on these properties and which now proposes to order their demolition, not requiring those to whom they made the loans to continue with mortgage repayments when the houses have been destroyed?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Guiana: State Records (11 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Would not the Prime Minister agree that the present situation is rather unsatisfactory precisely because a distinction is drawn between the fifty-year rule for historians and former Ministers to whom it now seems to be legitimate to refer to almost anything which happened in any Cabinet before and during the war? Will he consider this matter again and consider whether it is really necessary...

Serjeant at Arms (Appointments) (11 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Is the Prime Minister aware that although possibly this arrangement will not go as far as some hon. Members desire, nevertheless I think that the House as a whole will be grateful to him for having made the arrangement with Her Majesty?

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community ( 6 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Does the Prime Minister realise that this cannot be regarded as just another treaty which involves a certain amount of limitation on what we do, because it involves setting up institutions where we should be subject to majority decisions, so far as we can make out, and it involves by-passing Parliament? Is it not time that we had a clearer statement from the Government about it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment ( 6 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: In that case, may we expect a further statement from the Government before Christmas in order to do something to alleviate the very considerable anxiety existing in all quarters of the House and the country on this matter?

Business of the House ( 6 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: May I ask the Leader of the House whether he will announce the business of the House for next week?

Business of the House ( 6 Dec 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Will the Leader of the House seriously consider the proposal of my hon. Friend the Member for Fulham (Mr. M. Stewart) about the size of the Committee? Is he aware that as far as we are concerned we think that the whole of the London Government Bill should be taken on the Floor of the House? While we appreciate what the right hon. Gentleman intends to do in moving a Motion to secure that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Investment, Scotland (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: While welcoming the Prime Minister's statement that the Government are gravely concerned about the unemployment in Scotland, may I ask what he is proposing to do about it? Is he aware that the Chancellor's measures, which were announced some little time ago, were shown in the recent debate to be quite inadequate to deal with the situation? When may we expect a further statement from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Investment, Scotland (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Is the Prime Minister aware that while there is a strong case for more expansionist measures generally in respect of Scotland an accelerated programme of public works would do a great deal to alleviate the situation? Would he answer the question whether the Government are contemplating such a programme and when we may expect an announcement about it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Members (Privileges) (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: In response to the right hon. Gentleman's invitation, may I say that I think that his approach will be shared generally in the House, that there is some concern about the extent of these privileges—although none of us would wish to do away with all our privileges—and that I shall be glad to discuss the matter with him to see how we can best proceed?

Tribunal of Inquiry (Witnesses' Expenses) (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Are we to understand from the Home Secretary's statement that the decision whether witnesses who incur costs may be assisted will rest entirely with the Government? If so, is it not really inappropriate that this should be so? Should not the matter be dealt with by the Tribunal itself? Should it not be left to the Tribunal to decide whether in any particular case it is appropriate that public...

Tribunal of Inquiry (Witnesses' Expenses) (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Will the Home Secretary think again about this? Is it not very unsatisfactory to leave this matter in the hands of the Government, when they are so heavily involved in the whole business? In the circumstances, may I ask the Home Secretary whether he will represent to the Tribunal that it is reasonable that it should advise the Government on matters of this kind?

Business of the House (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: May I ask the Leader of the House whether he will state the business of the House for next week?
