Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: Edinburgh does.

Orders of the Day — B.B.C. Television (Medical Programmes) (27 Feb 1958)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: At Question Time yesterday, I raised this subject and questioned the wisdom of showing operations on television. It was clear at Question Time yesterday that most hon. Members present felt that there was nothing wrong and that they rather favoured this type of programme. I must, therefore, take due note of the opinion of the majority in matters of this nature. Nevertheless, I still have grave...

Airways Corporations (Reports and Accounts) (27 Jan 1958)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: Will my right hon. Friend say something about the development at Prestwick?

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: Edinburgh supports him.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 7. — (Charge of Purchase Tax on Conversion of Goods Vehicle to Passenger Vehicle or the Like.) (11 Jul 1956)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: When this matter was discussed in Committee on 5th June I was one of those on this side of the House who pointed out the unfortunate effects of the Clause. I agree very strongly with the hon. Member for Dunbartonshire, East (Mr. Bence) that it would have had the effect of prejudicing and discouraging young engineers and others who do very useful work in their spare time. I should like to...

Orders of the Day — Third Schedule. — (Reduction of Rents). (27 Jun 1956)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: I should like to make one or two remarks, before the Bill receives its Third Reading, in the very agreeable atmosphere created by the closing words of the right hon. Member for East Stirling-shire (Mr. Woodburn). On Second Reading—it seems a long time ago to most of us—I said that I was in favour of the Bill, and that is true today, subject to a reservation on one point to which I shall...

Orders of the Day — Third Schedule. — (Reduction of Rents). (27 Jun 1956)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: It seems a very long time ago, but it was this year. The date was 23rd February. My hon. Friend said: The Government have a passion for justice as between one ratepayer and another …"—[OFFICIAL REPORT, Scottish Standing Committee, 23rd February, 1956; c. 42.] Frankly, I do not consider that the arrangements under Clause 15 operate fairly as between different ratepayers. I know that a...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 6. — (Charge of Purchase Tax on Conversion of Goods Vehicle to Passenger Vehicle or the Like.) (5 Jun 1956)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: Although I welcome intention of the Clause, I am worried about its effect on those who may build cars as a hobby. Only this morning I received a letter from a constituent of mine who is connected with the engineering industry. He states that in his spare time he has, during the past nine years, devoted himself to both designing and building a car which is now approaching completion. He is...

Orders of the Day — GLASGOW CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (24 Apr 1956)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: It may seem a little strange that a Member for Edinburgh should intervene in a debate on a Measure which, as the hon. Member for Govan (Mr. Rankin) said, is entirely confined to Glasgow. I agree that technically that is so, in that this is a Bill promoted by Glasgow Corporation. Nevertheless, the substance of the Bill does bring forth certain matters which may indirectly affect the position...

Orders of the Day — GLASGOW CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (24 Apr 1956)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: There is no record of its having been raised in the town council of Edinburgh. The people of Edinburgh and not hon. Members are the persons directly concerned in this matter.

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: I am afraid that I cannot follow up the rather picturesque language of the hon. Member for Midlothian (Mr. Pryde), who said that the Bill was drafted with the cunning of a fox and the subtlety of a serpent. I merely find it rather complicated and technical. Nevertheless, I feel that the general purpose of the Bill deserves our support, and it certainly will receive my support, because it is...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: I can tell the hon. Member for Springburn (Mr. Forman) the districts which have been assessed. I cannot give the actual number, but the districts are Barnton, Cramond, Blackhall, Davidson's Mains, Clermiston, Silverknowes, Corbiehill, Easter Dry-law, Craigleith, and Blinkbonny. They have all been revalued, the whole lot of them in West Edinburgh, since the war. Incidentally, I would say in...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: No. I do not want to give offence, and I would say that I do not think that the Edinburgh valuation committee is any better or worse than any other. I think that it performs its difficult task to the best of its ability. I merely say that some of my constituents are distrustful of it, and they have let me know that in no uncertain terms. I am merely reporting that as an expression of their...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: I was just coming to that question. My final point is a very important one, which affects many of my constituents, including some most distinguished Members of the party opposite. At the moment I am not personally involved, because the assessor has not got around to me yet. No doubt he will do so in the course of the next year or two. I refer to the proposal contained in paragraph 13 of the...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: The difficulty has risen in other parts of Scotland, and I knew about Milngavie. I suggest that all revaluations of assessments which have taken place since the end of the war should be scrapped, and that a datum line—either the 1939 or 1944–45 assessments—should be taken as the starting point for the new system of valuation. This course is advocated by the Association of...

Cyprus (5 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: One of my constituents was killed before the Regulations were issued—a dastardly outrage.

Teachers' Salaries, Scotland (1 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: I intervene for a few minutes to refer to the position of the teachers of technical subjects, one of the grades affected by the Regulations. The Explanatory Note to the Regulations makes it clear that the proposal to reduce the new maximum scales will not affect existing teachers, but will affect those who are to enter this particular grade. However, it has the most unfortunate effect of...

Teachers' Salaries, Scotland (1 Dec 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: My point is that I think they have a case which ought to be looked at. I am with the hon. Gentleman on that.

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Lieut-Colonel Sir George Hutchison: As I understand that it is desired to conclude this debate at seven o'clock I intervene for only a few minutes to raise two points, one of which I do not think has yet been mentioned. When the Scottish Standing Committee discussed the Scottish Health Services last year I commented on one paragraph in the 1953 Report which dealt with German measles. I asked the then Joint Under-Secretary—now...
