Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Mid-Wales (5 Jun 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs, in view of the proposed closure by British Railways of railways in Mid-Wales and the consequent effect on the livelihood of at least 300 families in Montgomeryshire, if he will now take steps to bring alternative means of employment and alternative means of transport into the area..

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Mid-Wales (5 Jun 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: Does not the Minister consider that action, to be effective, must be taken before the affected families leave the area; otherwise, the trend to depopulation in the area is accentuated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Mid-Wales (5 Jun 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what steps he is taking to implement the policy of Her Majesty's Government to build up existing towns in Mid-Wales in order to assist in attracting suitable industries there.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Mid-Wales (5 Jun 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: Does the Minister consider that, in order to afford guidance in future to those authorities and bodies concerned with attracting industries to Mid-Wales towns, he should now disclose the precise reasons for refusing to approve the proposed Government factory for the Antler organisation at Welshpool, and, if so, when can we expect these detailed reasons to be given?

Orders of the Day — Disarmament (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: May I ask the House for an exercise of the traditional indulgence which I believe is shown to Members who are making their first contribution to a debate in this Chamber; more especially as the subject upon which I am speaking is not one on which I claim to have either the expert knowledge or the great experience which so characterised the contribution of the right hon. Member for Derby,...

Committee on Broadcasting (Report) (31 Jul 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: I enjoyed very much the speech of the hon. and gallant Member for Down, South (Captain Orr). I disagree with the hon. and gallant Member, however, in his summary dismissal of the Pilkington Report. Whatever criticisms can be made of it, that Report expresses the disquiet which most thinking people have felt about the television service, and one great contribution which it makes is to...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (5 Nov 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: The Chancellor of the Exchequer, in presenting his qnasi-Budget this afternoon, sought to stimulate the economy, but the very fact that he had to do so is itself an indictment of the lack of long-term policy in our Government. Once again we have been treated to the spectacle of the British economy being treated as a peculiarly sick patient. I say "peculiarly sick" because the patient is...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Bill (7 Dec 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: I listened to the speech of the hon. Member for Cardiff, North (Mr. Box) with considerable astonishment. It seems that the hon. Member is against the leasehold system in general but he is for it as against this Bill. The hon. Member has used what I have always understood to be the traditional method of those who want an excuse to vote against a reform of the leasehold system. He is prepared...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Bill (7 Dec 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: The hon. Gentleman has not answered the question. Does he consider that the result of passing this Bill, even with its imperfections, would be to give a more just and equitable system?

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Bill (7 Dec 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: The only other argument advanced against the Bill was put by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Mr. Gurden). He said that the sanctity of contract, so dear to the English lawyer's heart, would be interfered with by the Bill. That is an argument which was widely used in the House in the nineteenth century in the early days of ameliorative social legislation. It has seldom been heard...

Armed Forces (Pensions) (20 Dec 1962)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: Over the years, it seems to have become more and more accepted on both sides of the House that hon. Members have a special responsibility to those members of the community who have a just claim on the community, but who are in a weak bargaining position to succeed in their claim. I am sure that all hon. Members will agree that the existing widows—possibly the most unhappy description one...

Orders of the Day — Widows' Pensions Bill (25 Jan 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: I disagree very much with what the hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Sir Peter Roberts) has said. Dealing, first, with the point about the penalisation of those who have been thrifty, he mentioned husbands who save during their lives and invest in insurance and said that by increasing the benefits to those who have not so done one penalises those who have been thrifty. This is the classical...

Orders of the Day — Widows' Pensions Bill (25 Jan 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: Why does the Minister say that it is not a principle that someone who is earning should receive a pension and the pension should be reduced because he or she is earning?

Orders of the Day — Widows' Pensions Bill (25 Jan 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: On the question of arithmetic, if 87,000 widows have 10s. a week, that makes a sum of £43,000 a week and, if we multiply that by 52, we get just over £2 million.

Orders of the Day — Widows' Pensions Bill (25 Jan 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: The fact is that the Government do not have to pay those people. If they have a reserved right and are not drawing it, the Government do not have to pay it.

Orders of the Day — Widows' Pensions Bill (25 Jan 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: If the hon. Member is in favour of the earnings rule for widows, would he also be in favour of the earnings rule for industrial or Service widows, and if so, why?

Oral Answers to Questions — Law Reform Committee (Recommendations) (11 Mar 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: asked the Attorney-General what reports have been received over the last 12 years from the Law Reform Committee recommending that certain laws be reformed; and which of these recommendations have been implemented by legislation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Law Courts (Time and Motion Study) (11 Mar 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: Is the hon. and learned Gentleman not aware that in the Court of Appeal recently reference was made to the fact that 10 years ago this Committee recommended reform of the medieval law relating to highways and that no Parliamentary time has been found in those 10 years for this necessary reform? Does he not agree that this long delay brings the law into disrepute and means injustice to private...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electricity: Consultative Council Meetings (Press) (28 Mar 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: asked the Minister of Power whether he will introduce legislation to ensure that the consultative councils for the electricity industry make their meetings open to the Press.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electricity: Consultative Council Meetings (Press) (28 Mar 1963)

Mr Emlyn Hooson: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply, but is he not aware that in some areas much of the work of the consultative councils is done through general purpose committees, which are virtually the councils under another name, and that from their meetings the Press are excluded? Will he investigate the position?
