Orders of the Day — Supply: Home Ownership and Land Commission (6 Feb 1969)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Is it not surprising that, in the hon. Member's example, the price was doubled, although the Betterment Levy is only 40 per cent.?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Home Ownership and Land Commission (6 Feb 1969)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I say, with great respect to the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi), that I hardly feel that the length of his speech was justified by its constructive content. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for St. Pancras, North (Mr. K. Robinson), my successor at the Ministry, on his appointment, and also on his style and title as Minister for Planning and Land. I never quite understand...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Home Ownership and Land Commission (6 Feb 1969)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am sorry I cannot give way. I do not want to be long and I have something to say. I think it extremely unlikely that out of any reorganisation of local government we will see resulting any kind of planning authority which at one sweep will cover all conurbations and all the surrounding countryside land related to and dependent on that conurbation. This struggle, this conflict between the...

Prisons, Borstals and Detention Centres (Estimates Committee's Reports) (14 Nov 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am delighted to hear my right hon. Friend say that. It is a great improvement on the situation which existed only a few years ago. I entirely agree with what my hon. Friend the Member for Pontypool (Mr. Abse) said about conjugal visits. This is something which is practised in other countries. I know that it is has been practised in Yugoslavia for many years and, I think, in a number of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government of Ireland Act (22 Oct 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: On a point of order. Did I mishear, Mr. Speaker, or did not you call me for a supplementary question?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government of Ireland Act (22 Oct 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Was it not out of order for the hon. and gallant Member for Down, South (Captain Orr) to seek to raise such a point of order after you had called me for a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government of Ireland Act (22 Oct 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Will my right hon. Friend make it clear to the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland when he meets him that there is growing concern in this country about the degree of discrimination in local government in Northern Ireland, and that, unless there is a very considerable improvement in the situation, pressure is bound to grow in this country for this Parliament to exercise its reserve powers...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Would the hon. Gentleman point out where in the White Paper it was said that the Land Commission would lower the price of land?

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Member is wrong anyway.

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: However many times the hon. Member for Cheadle (Dr. Winstanley) intervenes, and we always like hearing from him, he would still be wrong on this point. What was being discussed was the cost of collecting the levy. The figure quoted by the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi) was about £2½ million. I assure the hon. Gentleman that that figure includes both the apportioned costs of the Land...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Gentleman asserted in his earlier intervention that the figure quoted by the hon. Member for Hornsey did not include the cost of the services provided by the Inland Revenue. I am pointing out that the hon. Gentleman was mistaken. This is something that can happen to all of us. I am glad that the hon. Gentleman is glad, that he now has the facts. In view of the hour, it is not...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I repeat, the size of the transaction referred to by the hon. Gentleman is hardly typical of transactions in the sale of land that are taking place. The hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Northwich recognised that whatever one draws as the dividing line and says that it is not worth collecting sums below that amount, one gets cases at the borderline where there will be nuisance...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: It has not been made clear that that is the intention. There have been suggestions by particular hon. Gentlemen opposite, but there has been no statement that that is the official policy of the party opposite. If it is, it would mean exceedingly wide loopholes, because many of the transactions which are dealt with and which give rise to the to the realisation of betterment are not occasions...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I do not propose to give way until I have finished this. Receipts to date have totalled about £1½ million, and outstanding assessments amount to about a similar sum. The estimates for 1968–69 are receipts of £8·3 million, and assessments of £10·8 million. Inevitably these assessments can be only a very general estimate. There are so many imponderable factors, and in particular the...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (24 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: No, I would not accept that. If the hon. Member will send me those Answers, I will give him a considered reply.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Historic Buildings Council (Town Schemes) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Eight schemes are in operation. Arrangements are nearing completion for a further five, and seven, others are under discussion. I will, with permission, circulate a fuller statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT, naming the towns and giving details of the allocation of grant.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Historic Buildings Council (Town Schemes) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: No, neither of those towns is on the list. It is open to any town with a historic area or a number of historic buildings to apply for a town scheme, which will then be considered by the Historic Buildings Council.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Areas of Natural Beauty (Designation Orders) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: My right hon. Friend has confirmed three, relating to the Hampshire Coast, the Norfolk Coast and the Kent Downs. The National Parks Commission is preparing three orders designating the North Wessex Downs, the Suffolk Coast and Heaths, and Dedham Vale and has several others at an early stage of consideration.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Areas of Natural Beauty (Designation Orders) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Yes, Sir. The Commission is keeping this matter actively under consideration. The statutory provisions are thorough and, in consequence, somewhat lengthy.
