Motor Vehicles (Passenger Insurance) Bill (26 Mar 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I congratulate the hon. Member for Stretford (Mr. Churchill) on his Bill. It is 10 years too late, but it is here. The hon. Gentleman has pursued his endeavours with enormous energy. The results of the Bill not having been on the Statute Book have been painfully obvious in the disasters which have occurred as a result of the crash of the Vehicle and General Insurance Company, not only for...

Business Statements (Questions): Adjournment (Easter) (25 Mar 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Would it be in order, this being my first point of order, to raise the happy matter which affects 126 hon. Members who have signed an Early Day Motion?

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 2) BILL: Probation and After-Care Service (25 Mar 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I, too, have a prison in very close proximity to my constituency. Leicester prison boasts the highest walls of any prison in the country, and its population includes some of the most difficult and, in some instances, most dangerous of prisoners. The prison officers there, particularly in the special security wing, have a very nerve-racking time. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Wandsworth,...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 2) BILL: National Exhibition Centre (25 Mar 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I wish to speak about the £70,000 grant which is being made, for the very first time, in respect of a National Exhibition Centre. I want to ask four questions. Where is the Centre to be established? What will it cost? Who will operate it? What aspects of both visible and invisible exports is it expected will be covered within that centre? A great battle about the location of the Centre...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation Supply: Concorde (24 Mar 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the importance of Concorde to areas such as Leicester, which live largely on their light engineering industries, and the effect which the collapse of Rolls-Royce has already had on the area? In those circumstances, can he give some assurance to the people in my constituency employed in light engineering not only that Concorde will not be cancelled but that...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Application to Industrial Court with a View to Discontinuing or Deferring Industrial Action (24 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: The hon. Gentleman has said on several occasions that the Bill should be used only extremely sparingly. Can he point to anything in the Clause that indicates that it must be used only sparingly and which will stop the Secretary of State, who is given complete discretion, from applying to the court as and when he sees fit?

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Application to Industrial Court with a View to Discontinuing or Deferring Industrial Action (24 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: One strange feature of the debate, and especially of the speech of the hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mr. David Mitchell), is that it has been so often without regard to the wording of the Clauses which we are considering. The problem was well expressed by the hon. Member who said that it was honed so much that this process would be used sparingly because in his view the success of these...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Application to Industrial Court with a View to Discontinuing or Deferring Industrial Action (24 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I have had to argue before now whether a situation or an injury was grave, whether bodily harm was actual or grievous. These are lawyers' words subject to interpretation by the courts, and it is a question of opinion as to what is or is not serious. I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention, because the court has to decide not beyond reasonable doubt that there is a grave risk...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Application to Industrial Court with a View to Discontinuing or Deferring Industrial Action (24 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I do not understand that intervention. The courts will have to interpret what Parliament means. God help the judges! It has been argued that the courts are creatures of Parliament. Let us use the word "creation". A new court is to be created by Parliament. It is a creation of Parliament. The judges are given the powers that we see fit to give them. Their power is not to make law but only to...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Application to Industrial Court with a View to Discontinuing or Deferring Industrial Action (24 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Under the guillotine procedure we are discussing at the moment Clause 124, which I regard as very bad for the country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (Arab League Trade Boycott) (22 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that the recent boycott imposed by the Mobil Shipping Company on ships carrying goods of Jewish or Israeli origin or carrying the Star of David is scandalous? Will he use his best endeavours to dissuade companies with commercial interests in this country from giving way to the kind of commercial blackmail which gives rise to boycotts of this nature?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: U.S.S.R. (Treatment of Jews) (22 Feb 1971)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: U.S.S.R. (Treatment of Jews) (22 Feb 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: While I welcome that answer, may I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman is aware of the deep concern felt on both sides of the House regarding the continued plight of Jewish people in the Soviet Union? Will he, through his answer to this Question, send a message to the International Conference, which is being held in Brussels later this week, expressing not only the Government's concern but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Open Institutions (Places For Young People) (21 Jan 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I welcome the hon. Gentleman's assurance. However, does he not agree that the incarceration in closed institutions of people under 21 should be regarded as a last resort? Will he not promote an investigation to see whether there are boys, and girls in some instances, who are in closed institutions, but who in fact would be suitable for keeping in open borstals, or other open institutions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police (Pay) (21 Jan 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to make himself responsible for determining the pay of police officers.
