Orders of the Day — CONTROL OF POLLUTION BILL [Lords] (19 Jul 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is extremely difficult for hon. Members to deal on a Friday with such important Government Bills as appear on the Order Paper. The Control of Pollution Bill [Lords] has come from another place. Those of us who have to choose between our constituency engagements and the business of the House to find it difficult to be here this afternoon to deal with...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Rates (27 Jun 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: Mr. David Gibson-Watt (Hereford) rose—

Orders of the Day — Supply: Rates (27 Jun 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: I am grateful to the right hon. and learned Gentleman. I shall intervene but not interrupt. Water rates may be high in Wales, but, because of the action of the right hon. Gentleman and his Government, and because of the low amount of domestic rate support in Herefordshire, the water rates in Hereford are far higher than in the rest of the Wye Valley. That is damnably unfair. What will he do...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Rates (27 Jun 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: Answer.

Members' Interests (22 May 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: Did the right hon. Gentleman refer to close relatives of Members of Parliament? If he did, he must be talking out of the back of his head.

Welsh Affairs (21 Mar 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: In taking part briefly in the debate, I wish to add my congratulations to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, on your appointment to your present position. The debate has run on lines of other Welsh debates which I and other hon. Members have known for many years. It has been a positive debate, in which hon. Members have raised particular problems. I wish to touch on only three. First, agriculture was...

Hospital Services (Pembrokeshire) (7 Feb 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: Before I start, might I say that there is an insufferable draught on the Front Bench? If it were possible, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to improve that situation, it would greatly help someone like myself who is just recovering from a dose of double pneumonia. I know that there are some people in the House who have the job of stopping the draught upon the Front Bench. I will only say that it has...

Hospital Services (Pembrokeshire) (7 Feb 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: The draught has been greatly diminished since my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State has come in. That means that there are people on the Front Bench to keep it away. I welcome this opportunity to answer my hon. Friend the Member for Pembroke (Mr. Nicholas Edwards) on the subject of hospitals in Pembrokeshire. The fact that my right hon. and learned Friend has joined me on...

Hospital Services (Pembrokeshire) (7 Feb 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: My hon. Friend may well be right. He has a far closer knowledge of this matter than I. I shall certainly look at the source of my information. If my hon. Friend is right, this again is a matter which the area health authority in the future must surely look at. The main base for paediatric services for West Wales is at Carmarthen, and this seems to be sensible. Withybush will provide...

Education (Expenditure) (28 Jan 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: Perhaps I can help the hon. Gentleman by saying that rather than intervene in the debate and give him the figures I should be happy to write to him about this school.

Health and Welfare (Expenditure) (28 Jan 1974)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: I should not like the hon. Member to get away too far with what he is saying, because what he is saying is that there are cuts on what is spent on the sick. He listened to the speech of my right hon. Friend and it was very clear at the time that the figures my right hon. Friend gave, which were not challenged, were not cuts on past expenditure but cuts on expansion in the future. The hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Disabled Person's Vehicle (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: The car in question was withdrawn because a change in the disabled person's family circumstances made her no longer eligible for such a vehicle. A three-wheeler, or a cash allowance if she bought her own car, was offered to her in lieu. The vehicle was then overhauled and held for issue in due course to a patient who qualified for such a car but who was unable to use a Mini. I shall write to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Disabled Person's Vehicle (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: I shall look at the letter which the hon. Gentleman says was written to me in this respect. I can assure him that the Department has operated quite properly and that I have personally looked very carefully into the details. In my original answer I said that the reason we could not leave the car with the lady concerned was that her mother had died and this brought her into the National Health...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Disabled Person's Vehicle (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: The car has now been issued to another person. As I have already said, the £25 per quarter car allowance would be available to the hon. Gentleman's constituent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rents (Lodger's Supplement) (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: None, Sir. Since the introduction of the Housing Finance Act 1972, rents apply to dwellings and not to the occupants ; there is no longer such a thing as a lodger's supplement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rents (Lodger's Supplement) (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: As usual, the hon. Gentleman is in a bit of a muddle. Under the Housing Act 1972, if, when the fair rent is determined for a particular dwelling, the tenant is found to be paying more than the fair rent, whether because a former lodger's supplement had been absorbed into the rent or for any other reason, the tenant is entitled to a refund of the excess.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rents (Lodger's Supplement) (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: East is as bad as west, but this matter is well known by the rent scrutiny boards, which are independent bodies.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Area Health Authorities (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: My right hon. and learned Friend has had a small number of representations, mainly about the appointment of local medically qualified members to the Clwyd Area Health Authority.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Area Health Authorities (3 Dec 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: This is not an easy matter. I, personally, and many other people, went to great lengths to try to find the right answer. Every nomination was very carefully considered. Because the number of appointments which could be made was small, many who were admirably suited to membership could not be appointed. Of the 10 members appointed by the Secretary of State to the Clwyd Area Health Authority,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Caravan Homes (Rents) (12 Nov 1973)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: There are no proposals at present for legislating on caravan sites.
