Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Deficiency Payments (Cereals) (13 Jul 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many late claims from farmers for deficiency payments were received during the last financial year; what was the amount of money involved; how many of these claims were met; and how much was paid in respect of them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Deficiency Payments (Cereals) (13 Jul 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Is the Minister aware that some of these late claims were from small farmers in my constituency in Norfolk, who protest that they did not receive the original claim forms when they were sent out? In view of this, will he ask his right hon. Friend whether sympathetic reconsideration can be given to such cases, because they mean great hardship to small farmers?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Agricultural Workers (Earnings and Working Hours) (13 Jul 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will state at current values and at constant values the average weekly earnings of regular whole-time adult male agricultural workers in England and Wales for the average of the three years 1954–55 to 1956–57 and for the 12 months ending September in the years 1961 to 1963, inclusive; and what the average weekly hours worked by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Agricultural Workers (Earnings and Working Hours) (13 Jul 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Does not the Parliamentary Secretary agree that the figures which he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT reveal that there is a difference of £4 10s. a week between the average earnings of farm workers and those of other workers in the country? If that is so, how does it correspond with the boast made by his right hon. Friend only a fortnight ago in the debate on agriculture that agriculture...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (29 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: I agree entirely with many of the points made by the right hon. and learned Member for Huntingdonshire (Mr. Renton). I agree with what he said about small farmers, and the necessity to consult them. I also agree with his last point, about maximum continuous expansion. I disagree with him on some of his facts, but I am in general agreement with him. I am pleased that my party has made it...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (29 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: I am glad to have Liberal support. Agriculture is an important industry; indeed, to many hon. Members it is our most important industry. Nevertheless, although requests have been made by hon. Members from both sides of the House—and in particular from hon. Members opposite—the Leader of the House has consistently refused to allow Government time for a debate on this industry. I therefore...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (29 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: The question put by the Secretary of State for Scotland referred to a wealth tax, and he talked of farmers farming up to 200 acres. The farmers to whom I have referred all farm less than 200 acres. The inference is plain for everybody to see: in many cases there is insufficient for these small farmers to live on, never mind their being able to pay a wealth tax. If further evidence is needed,...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (29 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: What about the Prime Minister's cottage?

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (29 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Since the hon. Member has asked me so many questions, will he tell me of one instance where a vicar, bank manager, policeman or school teacher living in a tied cottage has been turned out of it with nowhere to go?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Parachute Exercises (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: I am grateful for that reply, but is the Minister aware that during an exercise just over a year ago paratroops were dropped straddling the main railway line when a train was coming along? Fortunately nobody was seriously injured, although some were slightly injured. Is he also aware that a few weeks ago a cargo of about five tons of dummy ammunition was dropped on a railway track in front of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Air Base, Sculthorpe (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: We have had similar replies to this on a number of occasions and have been told that an announcement will shortly be made about the further use of this important site. [HON. MEMBERS: "Question."] Wait for it and you will get the question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Air Base, Sculthorpe (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Is the Minister aware that this is a very valuable site, and that it employs hundreds of civilians who have no prospects of any alternative work in the area? Will he see that immediate consultations are held between the various Government Departments, to make sure that this site is put to the best possible use in order to provide alternative employment for the civilians who work there?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Purchase Tax: 15 per Cent. Rate Reduced to 7½ per Cent.) (9 Jun 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: I support what my hon. Friends have said on the two new Clauses. From personal experience I have proved that Purchase Tax on the articles that we are now discussing hits hardest the old, the sick, the unemployed and the lowest-paid workers. I have the honour of living in a cottage, among my constituents, many of whom are old, sick or unemployed, and I know what an added burden is imposed on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance: Retirement Pensioners (Budget Increases) (27 Apr 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, even before the Budget increases on tobacco, the majority of old-age pensioners and other pensioners were spending up to the limit and then were going short? Is he not aware that these increases will impose an additional burden on them? Will not he reconsider his decision and take these additional burdens into account?

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Sculthorpe Air Base, Norfolk (14 Apr 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are 600 civilians employed at the base while the number of farm workers in the area continues to decline and there is no alternative employment? Is he further aware that it is considered likely that this base, with houses, buildings and installations valued at about £80 million, could form the basis of a new town and bring much-needed new industry...

Agriculture (Organo-Chlorine Pesticides) (24 Mar 1964)

Mr Albert Hilton: Is the Minister aware that this announcement will be especially welcomed by the farm workers, the people who mostly have to use these chemicals and who for so long have been concerned about the adverse effects of some of them? Will he give an assurance that he will not succumb to pressure by the manufacturers, who do not exactly like the view that he is now putting forward, and that he will...
