Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill (10 Nov 1959)

Mr David Ginsburg: It is with a deep feeling of humility that I address the House for the first time—and I also crave the indulgence of Scottish hon. Members. This is particularly the case, as my recent vocation as a backroom boy at the Labour Party's headquarters does not make me less of a new boy here. Furthermore, I can lay few claims to expertise in the subject under discussion. However, while a new...

Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill: Clause 1. — (Purpose for Which Part 1 Powers Exercisable, and Duration of Powers.) (1 Dec 1959)

Mr David Ginsburg: My purpose in intervening is to support the Amendment and also to support the Amendment in line 16, which I understand is in order in this debate and which seeks to add the words, or in which further employment is required for the purpose of the proper distribution and diversification of industry. There are three reasons why we should fortify Clause 1 (2). The first is that the word...

Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill: Clause 1. — (Purpose for Which Part 1 Powers Exercisable, and Duration of Powers.) (1 Dec 1959)

Mr David Ginsburg: I appreciate the point, Mr. Blackburn. My reason for dealing with the word "imminent" was that it is necessary to broaden the Clause. It is because of the weakness in the wording that it is necessary to enlarge the Clause. I am coming to that now.

Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill: Clause 1. — (Purpose for Which Part 1 Powers Exercisable, and Duration of Powers.) (1 Dec 1959)

Mr David Ginsburg: It takes one-and-a-half to two years to build a factory. Allowing for the planning, a high degree of anticipation is required if we are to establish factories in advance of unemployment supervening. If the Minister protests that action on these lines is not in his mind, it is high time that we were told so. 7.15 p.m. My next reason for seeking to broaden the Minister's powers and to give...

Mr David Ginsburg: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he made available to the Reading or other police, for disclosure to the disciplinary committee of the General Medical Council on 26th November, a record of an intercepted telephone conversation.

Telephone Conversation, Reading (3 Dec 1959)

Mr David Ginsburg: Did the Home Secretary, in coming to his decision not to claim Crown privilege, have due regard to paragraph 100 of the Birkett Report which deals with a parallel situation, particularly the last sentence which reads: … the power given to the Secretary of State to issue a warrant to intercept communications, whether by letter or by telegram or telephone, is a power of such importance and...

Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill: Clause 1. — (Purpose for Which Part I Powers Excisable, and Duration of Powers.) (2 Feb 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Newton (Mr. Lee) in saying that the wording which the Minister proposes is good as far as it goes, but I want to press him again to explain why he has not chosen to use the words contained in the 1945 Act. The operative words in that Act were: Where at any time it appears to the Board that the distribution of industry is such that in any area not...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Bank Rate (25 Feb 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply. Has his attention been drawn to a speech made last Friday week by the Governor of the Bank of England in which he said that the main reason for the increase in the Bank Rate was the internal situation? Also, has he noted a statement by his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer that the main reason for the increase in the Bank Rate was the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Local Employment Prospects (3 Mar 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) if he will in future arrange to publish regular figures of the number of jobs in prospect for each locality on a comparable basis with the published unemployment figures for local employment exchanges in the Ministry of Labour Gazette; (2) if he will give the latest figure of jobs in prospect in the Dewsbury Employment Exchange area.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Local Employment Prospects (3 Mar 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply. With regard to the figure he has just quoted for the Dewsbury area, would he not agree that this represents a very unsatisfactory state of affairs having regard to the 1952 and 1958 woollen textile recessions and that it is undoubtedly recognised that there is a need for industrial diversification in the heavy woollen district? Also, as the President...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Wool Textiles (Export to United States) (17 Mar 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the Prime Minister, in view of the protracted nature of the current negotiations, if he will raise once again with the President of the United States of America, the question of British wool textile exports to the United States of America.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Wool Textiles (Export to United States) (17 Mar 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: Is not the Prime Minister aware that a Motion on this subject has been signed by many of his hon. Friends? If the right hon. Gentleman was right to raise this topic with the President of the United States on television before the General Election, would not he think it right to raise it personally once again now that the 1960 quota has been imposed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal: Stocks (21 Mar 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: I thank the Minister for that helpful reply. Will he ensure that the scientific evidence which he summarises is given the maximum publicity and, not least, that it is brought home to the critics of the Minister's policy and of the National Coal Board?

Mr David Ginsburg: asked the Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations (1) how many British protected persons were killed, injured or arrested during the recent riots in South Africa; (2) what steps he is taking to safeguard the position of British protected subjects in South Africa at the present time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Union of South Africa: Riots (24 Mar 1960)

Mr David Ginsburg: As a British protected subject was involved in this incident, may I ask the Minister of State whether he will follow the precedent of his own reply on 8th February and press for Her Majesty's Government to be represented at the judicial inquiry which the South African Government are to hold? Further, will the hon. Member bear in mind Lord Palmerston's famous dictum "Civis Britannicus sum",...
