Mr Henry Hynd: As so many of the families live outside the base areas, is it not for their convenience to have N.A.A.F.I. shops, for example, in Nicosia?
Mr Henry Hynd: What has that to do with defence?
Mr Henry Hynd: This is a most unusual debate with lines cutting across both parties. I find myself, somewhat to my surprise, in agreement with at least a large part of what the hon. Member for Winchester (Mr. Smithers) has just said. He reminded us that he has been interested in this subject since the conference at Brussels. I can go back a little further, to the original conference at The Hague, and since...
Mr Henry Hynd: No one has yet contemplated the possibility of leaving the Common Market, but I do not think that it would be impossible if such a situation should arise. There is talk about not being able to unscramble omelettes. We know about that. I can hardly imagine that the situation would arise, but, if it did, the resources of diplomacy are never inexhaustible. General de Gaulle made his point of...
Mr Henry Hynd: May we know whether this proposed new Member is an official of the E.T.U.?
Mr Henry Hynd: In view of the many facets of the Common Market problem, will the Leader of the House give an assurance that there will be a free vote on both sides on this question?
Mr Henry Hynd: Would the hon. Member add to that, bringing their profits back to this country?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements are being made in British Colonies in Africa for the care of refugees from Angola.
Mr Henry Hynd: While I very much regret that the Government found it undesirable to convey the feelings of our people to the Portuguese Government, may I ask whether they will at least do whatever they can to look after the victims of what has happened in that unhappy country?
Mr Henry Hynd: Can the Parliamentary Secretary say how much came from the Argentine and how much from the Commonwealth?
Mr Henry Hynd: Will the Minister bear in mind that mast of the farmers sitting behind him are in principle against subsidies to private enterprise?
Mr Henry Hynd: Is it not very desirable that the N.A.A.F.I. should sell local goods to avoid the criticism which has been expressed in some cases about N.A.A.F.I. competing with local shops?
Mr Henry Hynd: I wish to call attention quickly to a gap mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, East (Mr. Fletcher). It refers to people who, through serious worry, have attempted to commit suicide. They may not be medical cases such as those to which my hon. Friend the Member for St. Pancras, North (Mr. K. Robinson) referred, and they may not require the services of a doctor. They may not...
Mr Henry Hynd: Less than a traffic warden's pay.
Mr Henry Hynd: I am glad that the hon. Member for Shrewsbury (Mr. Langford-Holt) has raised this question because, as both he and the Joint Parliamentary Secretary know, I have been pursuing it for some years. As I, too, am anxious to hear the Minister's reply, I shall be brief. I wish to stress how urgent the problem is becoming because of the growing motoring traffic between this country and the...
Mr Henry Hynd: We can expect more and more tourists from the Continent in future.
Mr Henry Hynd: What effect will these figures, which are much higher than the Minister originally calculated, have on the finances of the scheme?
Mr Henry Hynd: When the Clause was drawn up, I wonder whether the Chancellor had in mind the point raised by one of his hon. Friends about mushroom growers.
Mr Henry Hynd: I agree. I am only pointing out that mushrooms can be grown in a cellar. Suppose that somebody says, "I have a cellar in which I grow mushrooms." The Commissioners may say that they would like to look at the cellar. The grower might reply, "Oh, no, you will not. You are not coming on to my premises." Are we, in those circumstances, to say that the grower, having refused to allow the...
Mr Henry Hynd: Order. The hon. Member must address the Chair.
