British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I beg to second the Amendment. In doing so, may I declare my interest in that I am associated with the railway industry and I speak on behalf of its clerical, professional and technical workers? After the rather straight talking of my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, East (Mr. Ernest Davies) to the Minister, may I tell the Minister that the workers in the industry consider him to be the...

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I will make it clear. There are only two choices, as I see it. There should either be restriction according to the type of traffic carried—I am talking about long-distance traffic, not the milkman, the baker or the butcher making local deliveries—or, if it is maintained for prestige purposes, the operators should pay a considerably higher licence fee for the prestige of running their own...

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: The hon. Gentleman may not know, but the Chancellor of the Exchequer, very largely, pays for the C-licence holder running his own transport system. I do not say all, but very many of them are running their service at a cost well above that at which the same transport service could be provided by the established transport organisations, whether British Road Services or the railways. I look...

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I do not remember it being done before 1952. The first interference with a decision of the Tribunal was in 1952 by the then Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Woodford (Sir W. Churchill). If the noble Lord can give me any other reference, I shall, of course, give way to him and apologise. One must realise that there is a social value to be derived from the operation of both goods and...

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: When the procedural interruption occurred, I was addressing to the Minister a plea that there should be a real reconstruction of the capital finances of the British Transport Commission to bring about a relationship with the capital costs of the equipment which the Commission operates. I was making the point, too, that no group of workers likes to be associated with an industry which is...

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I knew that there was something wrong with him.

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

British Transport Commission (Annual Report) (29 Jul 1959)

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill: Clause 1. — (Postponement of New Valuation Lists, and Restriction on Proposals for Altering Current Lists.) (16 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: Will the hon. Gentleman agree that revaluations have not come frequently? We had none between 1935 and 1956, and goodness knows when the next one will be.

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill: Clause 1. — (Postponement of New Valuation Lists, and Restriction on Proposals for Altering Current Lists.) (16 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: At the same time, the local authorities then had the power to correct anomalies in the valuation list if they found any, and that is being taken away.

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill: Clause 1. — (Postponement of New Valuation Lists, and Restriction on Proposals for Altering Current Lists.) (16 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: It has been the misfortune of some of my hon. and right hon. Friends, because of the spate of legislation which the right hon. Gentleman has been bringing before the House in the last two or three years, to be almost daily opposite to him. He has been ineffective at times, but I have never seen or heard him so ineffective as he was today. He was so ineffective that he got his own Whip...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill: Clause 1. — (Postponement of New Valuation Lists, and Restriction on Proposals for Altering Current Lists.) (16 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: My hon. Friend is quite right. If the value falls, the owner or the occupier of a shop or industrial premises can make a proposal that the rates be reduced and the valuation court would agree, if it were satisfied that the value had been reduced. So we get the position in which a local authority has to accept a reduction because of a decrease in the rental value; and this protector of the...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill: Clause 2. — (Postponement of Termina Tion or Reduction of Relief for Charitable and Other Organisa Tions.) (16 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I beg to move, in page 2. line 18, to leave out " year 196263 " and to insert " appointed year". With your permission, Sir Norman, and for the convenience of the Commitee, the next three Amendments might also be taken together. They are those in page 2, line 19, leave out year 196263 " and insert " appointed year "; in line 23, leave out " year 196263 " and insert " appointed year " and in...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill: Clause 2. — (Postponement of Termina Tion or Reduction of Relief for Charitable and Other Organisa Tions.) (16 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: In view of what has been said, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Industrial Relations (8 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I beg to give notice that on Friday, 17th April, I shall call attention to the Report of the Engineering and Allied Employers' National Federation, entitled Looking at Industrial Relations ". and move a Resolution.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (8 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: Not everyone buys a motor car or a television set.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (8 Apr 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: I am reluctant to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, but this is a vital point. The fact is that there would be no profit but for the basic earnings of the person who is the primary producer. It is a fact that wages have been low and those at the top have taken an undue proportion of the value of the work produced by the workers and it is from that that they have got their unearned income.

TORQUAY CORPORATION (WATER) BILL (By Order) (17 Mar 1959)

Mr George Lindgren: No.
