Orders of the Day — PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (9 May 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Member for Dover (Mr. Arbuthnot) has damned the Bill with the faintest of faint praise and has pointed out many of its minor defects. I hope that he will forgive me if I do not follow him on the interesting points he has raised, though I hope to return later to his initial comments on the capital cost aspects of pipeline development. In our view, not only is this a most...

Orders of the Day — PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (9 May 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Like the hon. Gentleman, I, too, should be fascinated to know that. Obviously in terms of the pipeline there is none, but if the hon. Gentleman will look at the Bill he will see that there is a difference and a distinction drawn in it between the pipeline to be used for a single-product and one to be used for a number of products. If the application is made for a single-product pipeline then...

Orders of the Day — PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (9 May 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Perhaps we can argue that later. As I understand the French law, the Government have the power, as was stated in an article in The Times, to order the expansion of the capacity. There is no such power under this Bill as again there should be if there were any serious intention to develop it. When one remembers that in the initial authorisation a private enterprise concern is being given...

Orders of the Day — PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (9 May 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Public utilities.

Orders of the Day — PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (9 May 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: If he had not powers of compulsory purchase, the developer would have to pay more. But what is happening here is that the private developer is getting all the advantages as if he were a public authority, and merely paying compensation for actual loss and not giving any of the profit advantage to the person whose land he takes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Nuclear Tests (7 Jun 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Since the Prime Minister says that it is not practicable to publish this information, will he confirm that he is not suggesting that there are any security objections to doing so?

British Transport Commission (27 Jun 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I intend, like the Minister, to concentrate as far as possible on the future. I fear that in the Minister's speech we learned precious little about the future and the position basically is that we are all still waiting for Beeching. One thing the Minister told us which was new to me, and which, I think, we all welcome, is the intention that after the present survey of the factual position has...

PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: How many hours did we spend on Clauses 3 to 7?

PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: rose—

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (REPEAL OF s.1. OF 8 & 9 ELIZ, 2 c.16.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Salford, West (Mr. C. Royle), I hope that the House and the Minister will look favourably upon the new Clause. I think that I can say that many people who practise at the Bar in the criminal courts regard this as one of the most unsatisfactory provisions on the Statute Book. I hope that the Minister will have the courage to accept the new Clause, or at least...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (REPEAL OF s.1. OF 8 & 9 ELIZ, 2 c.16.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Would not the Minister agree that there would be just as high, if not a higher, percentage of convictions if there wore a charge of dangerous driving as opposed to this new offence of causing death by dangerous driving?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Owner-Occupation (19 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Will the Minister undertake to look into the question of leasehold enfranchisement at an early date? Is he aware that this aspect of owner-occupation has become increasingly urgent as the leases fall in?

Orders of the Day — H.M.S. "ganges" (19 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am very glad to have this opportunity to raise the question of the qualifications for training in H.M.S. "Ganges". H.M.S. "Ganges" is a well-known Royal Naval training establishment at Shotley, near Ipswich. I think that I can best introduce the topic by recounting what happened recently to the son of one of my constituents, who is the licensee of a hotel at Chaddesden. He is fortunate to...

Orders of the Day — H.M.S. "ganges" (19 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Disgraceful.

Orders of the Day — H.M.S. "ganges" (19 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Gentleman is missing the point. Here we are dealing with a specific qualification requiring a given standard of ability in mathematics. Surely it is not beyond the ingenuity of the Royal Navy to devise a test which will find out whether off not a boy of 15 has the mathematical ability to do this course?

Orders of the Day — H.M.S. "ganges" (19 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I should like to thank the Minister for the helpful suggestion which he has made. I appreciate that every Service Department must preserve the right to discharge people who prove to be unsuitable through no fault of their own be- cause something comes to light later which shows that they do not fit into Service life. A warning to this effect certainly would be most helpful. Would not the...

Orders of the Day — Motor Vehicles (Tests) (20 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The Parliamentary Secretary made out his case for an extension of this scheme when he said that spot checks had shown that 30 par cent. of vehicles which are only five to seven years old have proved to be defective. That is a remarkable and shocking figure. I have a few questions to put to the hon. Member. First, what is the reason for this extension being made at this moment and for only...

Orders of the Day — Motor Vehicles (Tests) (20 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: With respect, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I think that this is relevant to the consideration of this Order. The basic question I am asking is why only one year's extension is being made. If the hon. Gentleman says that he is not extending the scheme much further than this, how is he proposing to cope with the danger I have referred to? Before we approve this extension we should be told what the...

Orders of the Day — Miss Carmen Bryan (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Before the right hon. Gentleman turns to the detailed facts of this case, are we to understand from what he has just said that his general approach to this problem is that it would be only in exceptional circumstances that he would reject a recommendation of a magistrate? If so, that is a disturbing approach, because magistrates will approach this matter on this basis: "The Home Secretary...

Tribunals and Inquiries (Inquiries and Procedure) (1 Aug 1962)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The whole House will be grateful to the hon. Member for the Isle of Thanet (Mr. Rees-Davies) for having moved to annul these Rules, even if in a somewhat halfhearted manner as to his desire for annulment. This gives us the only opportunity we can have to discuss and analyse these very important new Rules. We would all begin by welcoming the Rules, which apparently are the first of a series...
