Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Salford Hotel, Invergordon (Licensing Application) (1 Mar 1960)

Sir John Macleod: Does my right hon. Friend realise that this is a disgraceful injustice? There is only one licensed hotel in Invergordon. This complete monopoly of State control in the area must be broken. It is intolerable that this should go on and that competition should not be allowed. Further, does my right hon. Friend realise that the local licensing authority said that the licence should be granted?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Salford Hotel, Invergordon (Licensing Application) (1 Mar 1960)

Sir John Macleod: In view of the unsatisfactory reply, I give notice that I shall try to raise the matter on the Adjournment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Small Burghs (15 Dec 1959)

Sir John Macleod: Could not the Under-Secretary advise the Secretary of State to have another look at the Cairncross Report?

Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill (2 Dec 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I, too, am a little disturbed about this matter, because in part of my constituency I have the Highland Development Area. This is now to be withdrawn under the Bill, and I want the position to be made clear. When my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade gave his earlier reply, I gained the impression that he himself was worried about it. His intention is to bring about...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill (4 Nov 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I want to bring the debate back to the inshore fishermen. I was interested to hear about the experience of the hon. Member for Grimsby (Mr. Crosland) as a member of a committee making a report, as I was in his comments on the Fleck Committee. However, I do not agree with him. Only the last Session we had legislation on this subject, and we now have further legislation on the fishing industry....

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Light Industries, Ross-shire (3 Nov 1959)

Sir John Macleod: asked the President of the Board of Trade what action he is taking to bring light industry into Ross-shire, and particularly to Invergordon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Light Industries, Ross-shire (3 Nov 1959)

Sir John Macleod: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Highlands are far too dependent upon public works, and that in this area public works are coming to an end? Is he satisfied that his office in Inverness is doing all it can?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: North American Firms, Scotland (23 Jul 1959)

Sir John Macleod: Will my right hon. Friend also remember that Invergordon is nearer by sea and air to many North American ports than to ports in the industrial South?

Orders of the Day — Railway Service, Inverness-Wick (17 Jun 1959)

Sir John Macleod: The reason I am raising the question of the proposed cuts in the Inverness-Wick rail service is that I am anxious to hear what alternative service is proposed, should the cuts take place, and whether the Minister is fully cognisant of the situation as it is at present in this area. I also want to ask whether he is satisfied that an alternative service will be an improvement on the existing...

Orders of the Day — Railway Service, Inverness-Wick (17 Jun 1959)

Sir John Macleod: The hon. Gentleman has made my point. I was not criticising the Commission on the ground that it was not trying to give services; I was trying to make the point that, in the Highlands, it appeared to have a negative approach.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Roads, Crofter Counties (9 Jun 1959)

Sir John Macleod: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what moneys have been granted towards roads since 1950 in the seven crofter counties, respectively.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Roads, Crofter Counties (9 Jun 1959)

Sir John Macleod: Could the Joint Under-Secretary of State say whether the figures for Ross and Cromarty are very much less than those for Inverness and Argyll, for instance? Does he appreciate that Ross-shire County Council is very worried about the large programme it wishes to carry out, since the moneys are totally inadequate for the programme it has in mind?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 8. — (Extension of Import Duties Act, 1958, S. 5.) (11 May 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I do not want to oppose the Clause, but I should like to ask what representations have been made to the Government that this relief should be given. The Government should keep their eyes on this relief from import duty on herring imported for conversion into fish meal and oil. I hope it will not encourage the Herring Industry Board to build meal factories where they will not be wanted. In my...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Crofters Building Grants) (5 May 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I am glad to be able to raise this evening the case of a constituent of mine who has been refused a grant under the Crofters Building Grants (Scotland) Regulations, 1956, for the sole reason, as far as I can see, that he is considered to be an incomer of professional status. By the refusal of this grant, I think the Government are defeating their own policy with regard to the Highlands. I...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Crofters Building Grants) (5 May 1959)

Sir John Macleod: Not according to paragraph 97. Lord John Hope: That does not conflict with paragraph 205. Paragraph 97 talks about auxiliary employment to be obtained by the crofters outside crofting. That is the essential difference between the two. It is in the light of that clear recommendation of the Taylor Commission and the principle it establishes that, with the passing of the Crofters (Scotland)...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Crofters Building Grants) (5 May 1959)

Sir John Macleod: He has to live somewhere.

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]: Clause 1. — (Constitution and General Functions of Red Deer Commission.) (29 Apr 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I am very pleased indeed that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has decided to put this extra representation on the Commission. I sympathise with quite a lot of what has been said by the hon. and learned Member for Paisley (Mr. D. Johnston), but the hon. and learned Gentleman must remember that one crofter is worth twelve of the others, and I can assure him that a crofter, provided...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]: Third Schedule. — (Enactments Repealed.) (29 Apr 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I must say a few words in complimenting the Government on having brought the Bill to this stage. There is no doubt that people in the North of Scotland were disgusted at the conditions prevailing in the deer stalking areas. The speech of the hon. Member for Hamilton (Mr. T. Fraser) was very contradictory and a little misleading. He said that agriculture and forestry play a big part in our...

Orders of the Day — Factories Bill: New Clause. — (Safe Means of Access and Safe Place of Employment.) (14 Apr 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I beg to move, That the Clause be read a Second time. When the Opposition moved a similar Clause in Committee, I said that I accepted everything about it except the words. I have, however, put down almost the identical words myself on Report. The two points about safe access and the bringing the height into line with the building regulations are obvious enough and there is only one point I...
