Orders of the Day — Kenya Independence Bill (22 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: Before he sits down, will the hon. Gentleman say something about the possibility of the Bill being a stepping stone towards federation?

Oral Answers to Questions — United Arab Republic (British Firms) (18 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that it is one thing for the Egyptian Government to make provision to pay compensation and quite another to get the money out of them and that there are a lot of claims still outstanding from the time of Suez? Can the hon. Gentleman bring pressure to bear to bring about a quick settlement of these claims?

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: The hon. Member for Manchester, Blackley (Mr. E. Johnson) mentioned that my right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition did not find much fault with the Gracious Speech. He is right, for this is an extraordinary document. It is not the normal sort of Gracious Speech to which we are used. Incidentally, I think it is a shame to call it the Queen's Speech; it is more like an election...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: I thank my hon. Friend. I do not remember the exact number, but I recall that a terrific job had to be done and it was not merely a question of building new houses. The time has come when likening recent house building figures to those of previous Labour Governments should no longer be used as a valid argument. I am surprised that the Prime Minister descended to that argument while embarking...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: I am obliged to my hon. Friend for giving the House those figures; and that brings me to my next point because the Gracious Speech says that the Government will stimulate house building by housing societies. Why should this be confined to housing societies? Why will the Government not continue the successful building programmes that have been undertaken by local authorities? These programmes...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: That is very helpful, and I am sure that it will be taken note of in the Press and elsewhere I support what has been said by the hon. Member for Belfast, West (Mrs. McLaughlin) and by the hon. Member for Blackley about widows. I am sorry that the hon. Gentleman confined his argument to Service widows. I know that he has taken a special interest in those in that category, but all widows are...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: If they had made the hon. Member a life peer it would not have been so bad, but he is made a hereditary peer, and all his descendants will sit—

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: I do not know whether he will have any sons or not—that is beside the point. The fact is that if he has any sons they will sit in the other place in perpetuity, as will their sons and grandsons. We are having the other place being made up of people sent there because they are unsuccessful Ministers, or because one of their ancestors won a battle. It is high time something was done about...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Nov 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: I do not think that the alternative is as the hon. Gentleman is putting it. It is not a question of nuclear power or conscription. If the hon. Member insists that it is desirable and even necessary for this country to be a nuclear Power in order to play its part and to have a say at the negotiating table, how far would he take that argument? Is it necessary for France, Italy, Egypt and China?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Resale Price Maintenance (2 Jul 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is yet able to announce the result of his inquiry into resale price maintenance.

Venereal Disease (28 Jun 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: Is there not another precedent in certain parts of the Commonwealth where there is compulsory notification of leprosy?

Orders of the Day — Security (MR. Profumo's Resignation) (17 Jun 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: Did not the police ask for a warrant?

Adjournment (Whitsuntide) (28 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: As one who is usually here on Fridays, may I assure the right hon. Gentleman, if he does not know it, that there is nothing like the same automatic shout of "Object" from this side of the House as there is from the Government side when the Bills come before us on Fridays?

Oral Answers to Questions — Leasehold Properties (Ground Rents) (27 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware of the widespread system under which one leaseholder in a block is responsible for collecting ground rents from his neighbours; and whether he will introduce legislation to end this practice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Leasehold Properties (Ground Rents) (27 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: Is the Attorney-General aware that this is certainly widespread in my constituency? While I am delighted to know that there are ways of people freeing themselves from this obligation, I shall be very interested if he will send me particulars.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Widows (13 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many widows within the jurisdiction of his Accrington office are now being paid pensions of 10s. per week.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Widows (13 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: That is a pity, but is the Minister aware that there is quite a number of these distressing cases in my division, as in others, and will not he in the near future at least bring this 10s. up to the same purchasing power as it had when it was first awarded?

Local Employment Bill (1 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: As my right hon. Friend the Member for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) said, it is not very attractive to oppose this Bill. He said that it was something like a deathbed repentance, but nevertheless we welcome anything which seems likely to be helpful to the worst-hit parts of the country. My quarrel with the Bill is that it is confined too rigidly to districts which have been already scheduled...

Local Employment Bill (1 May 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: My hon. Friend tells me that it is "high and persistent". Could we have a definition showing what that means? Without that definition many districts such as mine will feel a sense of frustration and that they have been much too hardly done by. In a district like mine industry is in a bad way. The cotton industry, in particular, is declining. Unless the surviving industries receive some help,...

Business of the House (25 Apr 1963)

Mr Henry Hynd: As the Finance Bill will be debated a week on Monday, can we be told when the Bill will be available?
