Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Provisions as to Subordinate Legislation (20 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Like my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Huntingdonshire (Sir D. Renton), I am surprised at the Opposition's hostility to the Schedule. After all, its whole purpose is to attempt to retain some part of the sovereignty by which they set such store. The hon. and learned Member for Dulwich (Mr. S. C. Silkin), who moved the Amendment, called it moderate but it seems to involve an...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Provisions as to Subordinate Legislation (20 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: May I for the record say that the Minister of Transport Industries has told me in the House that he has the necessary power to restrict

Dock Workers (Pay and Conditions) (19 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Since it is clear that with the best will in the world, and through no one's fault, many hundreds of dockers will be redundant in the near future, what steps are the Government taking to retrain these men and place them in suitable alternative employment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Policies (Prime Minister's Speech) (15 Jun 1972)

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Policies (Prime Minister's Speech) (15 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Though it may be necessary to introduce some more effective measures to control inflation, which is a cruel disease that hits the poorest hardest, will my right hon. Friend agree that any imposition of a statutory wages and prices freeze would simply lead to a horde of snooping enforcement officers and to a resurrection of the black market, and in any case would be no permanent solution.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause 7 (15 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: I am surprised that the shadow Minister should make that sort of point.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (13 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Is my right hon. and learned Friend saying that if these words were to be left they would override the sovereign right of Parliament to override its predecessors?

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (13 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: I rise only to redress the balance because I shall say nothing that has not been said before, and much better said, but it is a coincidence that most of the speeches so far have been by the hon. Members who are known in parliamentary shorthand as anti-Marketeers. They have naturally supported these Amendments because they cannot swallow the prospect of any abrogation of the sovereignty of the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (13 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: The House decided on the principle of entering the Community by a very large majority. It must have known in so deciding that there would necessarily be considerable abrogation of its sovereignty. It could not possibly have done so if it had thought otherwise. It follows that the House by that large majority, with its eyes open, is agreeable to accepting the prospect. There are many reasons...

United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (12 Jun 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Can my right hon. Friend make it clear, if not now at least in the White Paper, what are the major obstacles to an international agreement to establish minimum commodity prices on the lines of the Commonwealth Sugar Agreement? Surely that is one of the best ways in which we can help the under-developed countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: National Voluntary Civil Aid Service (25 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the present strength of the National Voluntary Civil Aid Service and how the training of the civil aid units is progressing; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: National Voluntary Civil Aid Service (25 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer, which shows that it has not grown much in the last few months. Will my hon. Friend take every possible opportunity of expressing the full support of the Government for these voluntary services, and will he encourage local authorities to support them?

Business of the House (18 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Would my right hon. Friend place us all in his debt by warning hon. Members that they would be wise not to make holiday plans before such-and-such a date in August or September, thereby allowing our noble friends in the House of Lords to make their holiday arrangements?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: ST. Andrews (16 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: If my right hon. Friend does visit St. Andrews, is he aware that he will be pleased by the unusually calm atmosphere and interested in the robust if controversial economic philosophy of the Conservative students there?

South Africa (Deported British Subject): Vietnam (15 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: In my short speech in this short debate I have no time to do more than underline what I believe to be some essential dates, statements and facts which have to do with this tragic situation. In the process I shall refer to some of the remarks made by the hon. Member for Penistone (Mr. John Mendelson). I first remind the House that our American allies and their allies, who are also ours—the...

South Africa (Deported British Subject): Vietnam (15 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: I cannot speak for the Burmese Government. All I asked was, who is to say that Thailand, Burma and Malaysia may not go the same way? I certainly cannot say: for all I know, the Burmese Government may want to go that way. If the Americans are in the event defeated, which God forbid, it will be largely due to their mass media, to such newspapers as the New York Times and to their quisling...

South Africa (Deported British Subject): Vietnam (15 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Then, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I will quote the word "quisling". These enemies within their gates think nothing of stabbing their own country in the back at a time when their own troops are engaged in mortal combat in a foreign field; and of giving what must be immense aid and comfort to their country's other enemies. What possible hope can there be of success at the Paris peace talks when all...

South Africa (Deported British Subject): Vietnam (15 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: My right hon. Friend has been a distinguished soldier. He knows that the President of the United States is also Commander-in-Chief of the United States Forces. Would he not condemn any commander-in-chief who did not attempt to stop reinforcements of men and munitions reaching his enemy?

South Africa (Deported British Subject): Vietnam (15 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: Whatever these gentlemen become, they are behaving in very much the same way as Quisling behaved in the war.

Northern Ireland (11 May 1972)

Mr Gilbert Longden: While I believe it is true that the great majority in this House and in Great Britain support my right hon. Friend in the great efforts he is making to be as moderate as possible in his methods of dealing with these bestial thugs, may I ask him what cooperation he is receiving from the great majority of the people of Northern Ireland?
