Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Commonwealth Development Corporation (30 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what arrangements exist for liaison between his Department and the Commonwealth Development Corporation; and what financial assistance he provides to the Corporation to enable them to provide training places in their enterprises overseas on a scale larger than they could justify on the basis of their own financial terms of reference.

Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Commonwealth Development Corporation (30 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that the existing arrangements enable him and his Department to ensure that the C.D.C. organisation on the ground can in turn make the best use of its facilities?

Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Commonwealth Medical Conference (30 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: asked the Secretary for Technical Co-operation what steps his Department will be taking in preparation for next year's projected Commonwealth Medical Conference.

Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Commonwealth Medical Conference (30 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: While, generally speaking, I think it is recognised that notwithstanding the heavy pressures on our educational resources we have responded fairly generously to the needs of the developing countries, may I have an assurance from my right hon. Friend, with reference to the medical services which will be discussed at this Conference, that we shall use our best endeavours to match our...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Income Tax Act, 1952 (Section 212) (28 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will introduce legislation to amend Section 212 of the Income Tax Act, 1952, so that educational establishments as defined in the Act will include establishments where mentally handicapped children receive education not presently recognised as such under the Act.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Income Tax Act, 1952 (Section 212) (28 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: I thank my hon. Friend for that Answer. Does not he agree that the present interpretation leads to somewhat unfortunate anomalies, in that genuine education applies, but in many of these cases only the lower forms of benefit can be drawn, as he will be aware? Will he look at the unfortunate anomalies which arise?

Business of the House (16 Jul 1964)

Mr John Leavey: While not wishing to encourage racial prejudice at all, may I ask my right hon. and learned Friend whether he agrees that these last questions are an indication that we are spending a disproportionate amount of our time on Scottish affairs?

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Schedule. — (Transitional Provisions.) (13 May 1964)

Mr John Leavey: I welcome the Bill. If, as a matter of courtesy, I owe it to the House to explain why I have not taken part in the debates on the Bill hitherto, perhaps I may say that I have been absent for reasons beyond my control. I am not going to say whether or not I would have been a rebel. It appears from what has been said this evening, and from what I have read, that one could not have been right...

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments Bill: Clause 1. — (Licensing of Riding Establishments.) (8 May 1964)

Mr John Leavey: Will my hon. Friend give some indication of the criterion by which this matter will be judged? Can he go so far as to say that he will not take too much account of the criterion used by the hon. Member for Rossendale (Mr. Greenwood)—that discrimination should be made against those establishments which are operated, as he puts it, for gain as distinct from those whose activities are...

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments Bill: Clause 6. — (Interpretation.) (8 May 1964)

Mr John Leavey: I join with other hon. Members in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, South (Sir J. Lucas) on his success in getting the Measure to this stage. I hope that it will reach the Statute Book with the support of the whole House. I am not always ready to accept the need for a further extension of the licensing of human activities, but I am sure that this Measure meets a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Lung Cancer (4 May 1964)

Mr John Leavey: asked the Minister of Health by how many the lung cancer deaths in Great Britain increased in 1963 compared with 1962.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Lung Cancer (4 May 1964)

Mr John Leavey: I understand that we have now exceeded 27,000 deaths from lung cancer annually. Can one assume that at least a substantial proportion is attributable to heavy smoking?

Schedule (18 Jul 1963)

Mr John Leavey: I wish to refer to the proposal to debate Welsh affairs on Monday week. I mean no disrespect whatever to hon. Members representing Welsh constituencies, but does not my right hon. Friend feel that the practice of devoting a day to Welsh affairs is becoming a bad habit? If we have to have debates based on this regional principle, would it not be as well to consider having a day's debate, for...

Textile Industry (1 Jul 1963)

Mr John Leavey: My hon. and learned Friend said that the last two interventions in his speech were welcome. Perhaps this will also prove to be. Is he aware that new quotas are being continually offered? Recently, Malaya was given a quota of 5 million sq. yds., although I believe that she has only one cotton mill, with about 200 or 300 looms, which would seem out of keeping with that quota.

Exports (24 May 1963)

Mr John Leavey: I want to echo what has been said by all hon. Members in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Mid-Bedfordshire (Mr. Hastings) upon the choice of this subject when he was lucky enough to be first in the Ballot. It seems to me that he got his priorities absolutely right. I throw out the observation that, in view of our surprising procedures in this House, it needs a private Member to...

G.a.T.T. (Ministerial Meeting) (23 May 1963)

Mr John Leavey: With regard to the across-the-board proposal and the principle which has been apparently accepted, my right hon. Friend stated that Her Majesty's Government and others will not press for reciprocity from the less-developed countries. I do not expect my right hon. Friend to go into detail, but can he give some general indication of what the Government have in mind about the position of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Litter Act (4 Apr 1963)

Mr John Leavey: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will instruct the Metropolitan Police to treat as an offence under the Litter Act the attaching of circulars to the outside of parked cars.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Litter Act (4 Apr 1963)

Mr John Leavey: I am obliged to my hon. Friend for that reply, but does he not recognise that it is an increasing practice to use this method for the distribution of circulars, and that is a palpable evasion of Parliament's intentions as embodied in the Litter Act, since all that happens is that the circulars are put on the bonnets or windscreen wipers of the cars and, a few minutes later, fall on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Social Services (State Benefits) (21 Mar 1963)

Mr John Leavey: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on the basis of the Report on Revision of the Index of Retail Prices, Command Paper No. 1657, and the figures published by the Central Statistical Office in November, 1962, by how much the value of State benefits received through the social services and in other ways exceeds the payments of tax by a representative family, comprising a married couple and...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Social Services (State Benefits) (21 Mar 1963)

Mr John Leavey: May I be made quite clear about this? Can my right hon. Friend say that any family which is currently in this category—say, a husband and wife and two children of school age with an income such as I have described in the Question—is receiving by way of social services and the like £30 a year more than it would be paying in direct and indirect taxes?
