Oral Answers to Questions — Coal: National Coal Board (Capital) (3 Jul 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: Do not these figures show a marked reduction in the amount of borrowing compared with 1959–60? How far is this due to stock movements, to a reduction in stocks? Does not the picture show that certain pessimists were very wrong a year ago when this matter came before the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Sea Cadets, Dewsbury (Equipment) (26 Jul 1961)

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Sea Cadets, Dewsbury (Equipment) (26 Jul 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: But is the Minister aware that this is an extremely bad piece of public relations by his Department and the Service Departments generally? Is he aware that my constituents were willing to fetch and transport the tentage if it were made available? Is he further aware that the Departments cannot really have it both ways; either they will not make the tentage available as a matter of principle,...

Economic Situation (26 Jul 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: I was a little amused when listening to the hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Sir P. Roberts). He was one more of the procession of hon. Members opposite who have suddenly become converted to planning. I felt somewhat sorry for the Financial Secretary, who is rather isolated on the Front Government Bench. He and the Treasury are at present the last repositories of liberalism and an unplanned...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices, Productivity and Incomes (Council's Report) (3 Aug 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: I welcome that limited follow-up, but is it not a fantastic state of affairs that the Chancellor's actions should be in direct variance with the Council's advice? May I ask the Prime Minister why neither he nor the Chancellor of the Exchequer last week told the House that this Report had been received? Finally, given that the Report is dated 13th July, surely the Government could have ensured...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments and Political Parties (23 Nov 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: Yes, but does the Prime Minister think that the recent interview at the Treasury of two members of the Observer staff with two civil servants and two members of the Conservative Central Office conforms with the spirit of that instruction? Does he think that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Textiles and Clothing (28 Nov 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the percentage change in net new orders for textiles and clothing for July and August, 1961, compared with the average monthly figure for net new orders in 1959; and if he will give a similar comparison for the woollen industry alone.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Textiles and Clothing (28 Nov 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: Is not this a rather serious decline? Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the growing anxiety in certain sections of the wool textile industry? Will he not agree that the Chancellor's action in limiting the demand is having a very serious effect upon that industry?

Oral Answers to Questions — Commonwealth and Southern Irish Residents (Franchise) (28 Nov 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: In view of the anxiety which exists, may we have an assurance that no limitation of the franchise is expected? Would the right hon. Gentleman also bear in mind that the Government will be creating two categories of citizens—a member of one of which can vote, become a Member of Parliament, perhaps even Prime Minister, but will still be liable to deportation under the new legislation?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (29 Nov 1961)

Oral Answers to Questions — Oil Industry (Statistics) (7 Dec 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will the Prime Minister tell the Departments to get a move on? Is he aware that in the latest White Paper of October, 1960, comments are made on the state of the country's oil earnings but still no figures are published? What is the need for all the secrecy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces (Citizenship) (13 Dec 1961)

Mr David Ginsburg: Would not the information, if available, show a very impressive picture indeed? Has the Minister taken into account the psychological effects of the Commonwealth Immigrants Bill on recruitment?
