Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for Grants to Persons Carrying on Certain Small Farm Businesses in Scotland.) (21 Jan 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I think it was a pity that this Bill and the M.A.P. grants should have been so closely mixed up. That certainly confused a great many farmers in the first instance and I think it was a mistake by the Government. However, I certainly welcome the concession made in the statement by the Secretary of State today because I hope it means that he has taken note of all the representations which have...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for Grants to Persons Carrying on Certain Small Farm Businesses in Scotland.) (21 Jan 1959)

Sir John Macleod: Do not talk nonsense; they have been made very widely and many of my constituents are seriously worried about the matter. There is no doubt that in my constituency, a Highland constituency, great use has been made of M.A.P. That little addition has meant a great deal, particularly in the remote area where transport charges mean an increased burden on those benefiting from M.A.P. I hope my...

Scotland (Hydro-Electric Board Scheme) (14 Jul 1958)

Sir John Macleod: I have no intention of going into the technical details of this matter, as I am not qualified to do so. My information is similar to that of the right hon. Member for East Stirlingshire (Mr. Woodburn). I hope the right hon. Gentleman has convinced the House that the Board's scheme is the cheapest form of producing electricity. I believe that hydro-electric schemes are still necessary,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Crofter Counties (Advisory Bodies) (8 Jul 1958)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Patients (Travelling Expenses) (22 Apr 1958)

Sir John Macleod: Will my hon. Friend look at this question again, on which I have sent him cases? There are instances of great hardship among those who have to stay away for nights. This sort of thing should be taken into consideration, because it is definitely hampering people from getting the full benefit of the Health Service.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Sir John Macleod: The hon. Member for Shoreditch and Finsbury (Mr. Collins) will not expect me, at this stage, to cover the wide field he has traversed in raising such questions as the Price Review. I want to be very brief in my speech and deal with matters in the Bill, as I know that other hon. Members are anxious to take part in the debate. I represent a Highland constituency in which there are many...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Sir John Macleod: There is no doubt that the general tenor of speeches from the Opposition has been that we must keep these compulsory powers or we shall not get full efficiency from the agricultural community.

On the question of rents, I...
