Local Government Reform in England (4 Feb 1970)

Mr David Ginsburg: While there may be some arguments for a metropolitan area for the West Riding, is my right hon. Friend aware that there will be less welcome for his proposal to retain the five Maud sub-areas? Will he confirm that his remarks to my hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Test (Mr. R. C. Mitchell) also apply to the West Riding as regards the number of the areas concerned?

CALDERDALE WATER BILL (By Order) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr David Ginsburg: The hon. Member for Bodmin (Mr. Bessell) referred to a possible alternative scheme. That is surely an argument for letting the Bill go to Committee for examination and not for opposing it outright. I rise to support the Bill and my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Dr. Summerskill), but first I compliment my right hon. Friend the Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) on the presentation of his...

CALDERDALE WATER BILL (By Order) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr David Ginsburg: The point surely is that we are dealing with a short-term crisis, over 10 years. Knowing the rate of progress and the chances of promoting Private Members' Bills, and the account that my right hon. Friend the Member for Sowerby has given of 20 years with the Bill, we will have that sort of water in 1985 or 1990. But that is not the problem we face. It is a short-term problem. In 1976, demand...

Oral Answers to Questions — Technology: Concorde Project (1 Dec 1969)

Mr David Ginsburg: Can my right hon. Friend give the House some idea of what the total research and development and pre-production costs will be before the Government are in a position to take a final decision on whether to go into production on this scheme?

Oral Answers to Questions — Technology: Concorde Project (1 Dec 1969)

Mr David Ginsburg: How much?

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Second Day (29 Oct 1969)

Mr David Ginsburg: The hon. Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. Wright) began his concluding and interesting remarks on education with an apology for intervening in English affairs. I hope that he will forgive me if I resist the temptation to involve myself this evening in Scottish affairs. It is inevitable, especially in the run up to a general election, that there should be a considerable amount of political...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Second Day (29 Oct 1969)

Mr David Ginsburg: I am grateful for that expression of view, and, without necessarily agreeing with my hon. Friend, I assume that the independent inquiry to which I referred would take that and other factors into account. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister referred to the unofficial dispute in the pits, to which my hon. Friend the Member for Bedwellty (Mr. Finch) referred in moving terms. Hon. Members...

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Investment Grants (18 Jun 1969)

Mr David Ginsburg: Is my hon. Friend aware that the woollen rag trade is centred in my constituency? I am sure that he will have read the report of the Wool Textile Working Party, which was commissioned by Sir Stafford Cripps, and which reported to the present Prime Minister when he was at the Board of Trade. Is my hon. Friend aware that in that report the woollen rag trade was treated as an integral part of...

Immigrants (Entry Certificates) (1 May 1969)

Mr David Ginsburg: Is the Home Secretary aware that those of us, like myself, who have had to deal with some of these difficult cases, welcome his statement? It is surely inhumane that people should have to travel long distances and then be turned back at the point of entry, and perhaps even more inhumane that the Home Secretary is at the moment in a position of having to act as gaoler in some of these cases.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Grants (Social Need) Bill (2 Dec 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: The hon. Member for Norfolk, South (Mr. J. E. B. Hill) has rightly referred to the aspects of the Bill which deal with social need and not only with the immigrant question, but he will, I am sure, forgive me if I return to that aspect of the Bill. In my opinion, no party in this House can claim a monopoly of virtue in immigrant policy. My party—and, it is fair to add in view of the...

Orders of the Day — Queens Speech: Debate on the Address (1 Nov 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: I shall briefly refer to one item of the Gracious Speech and perhaps at slightly greater length to one important omission. Included in the Gracious Speech were the words: My Government will develop policies to encourage a better distribution of resources in industry and employment and to make fuller use of resources in the Regions. I am concerned that no news of the Hunt Committee was given...

Orders of the Day — Science and Technology (23 May 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: I will make only a brief intervention, Mr. Speaker, in view of your plea. I agree with the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) that the Select Committee system has worked very well and has proved its value as a Parliamentary instrument. On first hearing, I would to be inclined to agree with the hon. Member that, in the long run, it will be impossible to work, say, 15 Members of Parliament...

Orders of the Day — Science and Technology (23 May 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: There are examples in the nuclear industry where competition has brought benefits. If my hon. Friend wants to consider a science-based industry where there are benefits from competition, he should look, for example, at the instruments industry and the drug industry, where there are advantages from competition.

Orders of the Day — Science and Technology (23 May 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: I think that we are discussing both. I should be happy to debate this topic at length, but there are colleagues on both sides of the House who want to speak, and Mr. Speaker asked us to be brief. I conclude with a reference to Culham and fusion. I hope that the Minister has not closed his mind on this topic. It is an area of modest outlay with big potential economic pay-offs. This...

Sir Frederick Crawford (Withdrawal of Passport) (14 May 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: I shall make a short speech on lines similar to the one just made by the hon. Member for Roxburgh, Selkirk and Peebles (Mr. David Steel). This Motion and debate throw up two quite separate issues. First, there is the issue of Rhodesia policy, on which I fully support the Government and my right hon. Friend. I only say in passing that, as my right hon. Friend must know, it is a very long road...

International Monetary System (18 Mar 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: My right hon. Friend has just made an important statement about other Central Banks. Would he consider paying a visit to Paris in the near future to discuss the future with the French finance authorities?


Mr David Ginsburg: I give general support to the Amendment. It is essentially a probing Amendment, and I would not pretend that the words of it are perfect, but it suggests a certain administrative procedure. I should be interested to hear what my right hon. Friend has to say about it. Every hon. Member accepts that there must be control which should be administered with compassion. Speaking as one with a large...

Nuclear Power Stations (Siting) (6 Feb 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: Will my right hon. Friend publish the report of his experts? Without being alarmist, will he specifically tell the House whether there would be any danger in the hypothetical event of an aircraft crashing into a nuclear power station?

Sachsenhausen (5 Feb 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: This is a short but very important debate on an issue which has moved me personally as much as any since I have been a Member of the House, and it is, for many reasons, a significant Parliamentary occasion. Most important of all, restitution has been made. The Foreign Secretary has announced that the detainees are to be compensated and the House has shown that, even when mighty Ministers...

Sachsenhausen (5 Feb 1968)

Mr David Ginsburg: Policy and politics. He has been concerned to examine the administrative processes whereby Ministers, and, in the circumstances of this case, particularly the Foreign Secretary, reach their decisions. Quite rightly, the Commissioner does not—this is important—pass judgment on Ministers. One ought to have in mind the precedent of Lord Denning and the Report of the Profumo affair in saying...
