Orders of the Day — Regional Aid (13 Nov 1979)

Mr David Ginsburg: rose—

British Broadcasting Corporation (External Services) (2 Nov 1979)

Mr David Ginsburg: With the agreement of the hon. Member for Aldershot (Mr. Critchley) and the Minister, I wish to intervene briefly. Perhaps I should also declare an interest as a frequent broadcaster on the French service. There are five major reasons, certainly in respect of the French service, why one hopes that the Government will think again. There is, of course, the traditional fact that the French...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (27 Jun 1979)

Mr David Ginsburg: I hope that the Government will heed the last words of the hon. Member for Chichester (Mr. Nelson), in which he spoke about accelerating the payment of the pension increase. I was in considerable agreement with what he said about retirement pensions, but I did not agree with, and I hope that the Minister will not heed, the hon. Gentleman's earlier comment that we have had enough of fine...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: Consent to Prosecutions (25 Jun 1979)

Mr David Ginsburg: Nevertheless, will the Attorney-General confirm that it is his function to decide when immunities should be granted to witnesses in respect of prosecution? Does he consider, in the case referred to, that, looking back, it is a pity that his predecessor did not intervene and that the matter was left to the Director of Public Prosecutions? It is now admitted by the newspaper concerned that it...

Questions to Ministers (20 Nov 1978)

Mr David Ginsburg: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Have you received a request from the Attorney-General to give a reply to Written Question No. 246 on the Order Paper, especially in view of public interest arising from the letter of the Director of Public Prosecutions to The Times on Saturday, dealing with immunity from prosecution for witnesses where the DPP indicated that the Attorney-General had handed...

Teacher Training (24 Jan 1977)

Mr David Ginsburg: My right hon. Friend has described her proposals as being essentially proposals of compromise. We appreciate her difficulties, and she is entitled to a measure of support, but does she agree that more information is required than has been given to the House at this stage. Will my right hon. Friend set out the position of the Kirk-lees authority and the Wakefield authority? I have so far...

Environment, Housing and Construction (26 Nov 1976)

Mr David Ginsburg: My right hon. Friend mentioned Windscale and his forthcoming statement. In view of the importance of the operation to the national economy, may we have an assurance that the statement will be made before the Christmas Recess?

Environment, Housing and Construction (26 Nov 1976)

Mr David Ginsburg: I agreed with a good deal of what was said by the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight (Mr. Ross), including some of the views of his party about the taxation of site values. The hon. Gentleman mentioned the views of Lord Rothschild. For my part, I commend to my right hon. and hon. Friends some of the views of our late colleague. Richard Stokes, at one time Member for Ipswich. I hope that the...

Angola (Mercenaries) (29 Jun 1976)

Mr David Ginsburg: I associate myself with the plea for mercy by the Prime Minister and my hon. Friend to the Angolan Government, but is my hon. Friend aware that although everyone is relieved that my constituent, Mr. Colin Evans, is not to be executed, a sentence of 24 years' imprisonment for no offence in international law, and no involvement in atrocities, is morally outrageous and abhorrent to the House?...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Seat Belts) Bill (1 Mar 1976)

Mr David Ginsburg: In his concluding remarks, the Minister effectively claimed that as lives would be saved by the passing of the Bill we were justified in overlooking many of the arguments which could be advanced against it. Neither the House nor the Minister has always taken that view in dealing with problems of this kind. It is worth going back less than six years, to December 1970, when the House debated a...

The Right Honourable Member for Walsall, North (28 Jan 1975)

Mr David Ginsburg: The hon. Member for Shrewsbury (Sir J. Langford-Holt) has rightly indicated some of the difficulties in this case, about which hon. Members generally agree. No one can take part in this debate without a sense of the personal tragedy which is involved and, on the other hand, a sense of the historical importance of the subject we are debating, which goes to the roots of our parliamentary...

The Right Honourable Member for Walsall, North (28 Jan 1975)

Mr David Ginsburg: I was about to say that both those Members delayed their resignations to suit their parties, in this case the Government, although it is worth adding that there was retribution in both cases, at the polls. Therefore, on precedent, it does not seem to me that the understandable concern of constituents and the Patronage Secretary to secure a resignation from my right hon. Friend the Member for...

The Right Honourable Member for Walsall, North (28 Jan 1975)

Mr David Ginsburg: My right hon. Friend has anticipated what I was about to say. As I see it, my right hon. Friend in his letter to the Leader of the House had not passed the point of no return. I would even venture to say that if the Chancellor had jumped the gun by bestowing the Chiltern Hundreds, the House would have had to act to cancel the writ. We are on surprisingly dangerous ground here. I would remind...

The Right Honourable Member for Walsall, North (28 Jan 1975)

Mr David Ginsburg: —and some who have actually served prison sentences, including Miss Devlin, not so long ago. But it takes six months to disqualify a Member who has been adjudicated bankrupt. So for many reasons this will not be the easiest of investigations for the Committee. Judging from his latest letter, my right hon. Friend may not come back to Britain to see the Committee. The state of my right hon....

The Right Honourable Member for Walsall, North (28 Jan 1975)

Mr David Ginsburg: As regards mental health, I think the 1959 Act is clear. Mr. Speaker can arrange for the appointment of two doctors, nominated by the Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians, to examine the Member, but the provision would operate only if he were detained in an institution. For the rest, there is nothing wrong in being mentally ill.

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

Mr David Ginsburg: The right hon. Lady has omitted from her historical catalogue the order for mandatory differential rating, laid by the Secretary of State for the Environment in the Conservative Government on 7th February, not long before the General Election. It led to substantial increases in rates, including my constituency.

Rate Support Grant (25 Mar 1974)

Mr David Ginsburg: The House has listened with great interest to the comments of the hon. Member for Reading, North (Mr. Durant) on the rating system. His knowledge extends far beyond this country. Unhappily, the situation in Manitoba will not get the Government or the House off the hook that they are on tonight. The hon. Gentleman told us some interesting things about his constituency and about some of his...

Services' Motor Coach (Explosion) (4 Feb 1974)

Mr David Ginsburg: Services in my constituency have been involved in the rescue work. May I therefore join in expressing sympathy with the families of the dead and injured. Will the Government tighten up security measures and will they, as requested by the hon. Member for Bradford, West (Mr. Wilkinson), seriously consider the introduction of identity cards in this country, which I believe would meet with...

Local Government (Successor Parishes) (12 Dec 1973)

Mr David Ginsburg: I wish to support the general line of argument which has been developed by my hon. Friend the Member for Colne Valley (Mr. David Clark). I shall not go into generalities, because my hon. Friend has covered the points and the Minister is familiar with them. I have been asked to put in a good word on behalf of my right hon. Friend the Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton), who cannot be with us...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr David Ginsburg: Would not the hon. Member agree that this was a long and deep-seated process, certainly between 1951 and 1964 when there was little by way of industry being introduced into Yorkshire? Going further back, the report of the Wool Textile Working Party referred to the complete neglect of the area in the pre-war years.
