Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food Prices (7 Feb 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Is the Minister aware that as a result of our membership of the EEC there has been no decrease in the price of foods that this country imports? Cheese bears a tax of £200, butter a tax of £167, and canned ham a tax of £140. How long will the right hon. Gentleman seek to give the lie to an unbelieving nation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Building Materials (6 Feb 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: The Secretary of State for Wales has informed me that in Wales there is a shortage of steel, plaster, plasterboard and sanitary ware. Would it not be correct to insert a forward planning proviso in the Housing and Planning Bill to ensure that there is a continuous flow of materials directed to the construction and improvement of houses?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Economic Development Council (29 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Will the Prime Minister tell his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment that regardless of phase 3 he is empowered to act within legislation to settle this dispute, or has he so circumscribed his powers that the Secretary of State for Employment is now as obsequious as is Mr. Robin Day?

Public Expenditure (29 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: I share the view of my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, West (Mr. Robert C. Brown) about the regional employment premium. If the regions are to realise their full industrial potential and provide employment for their people, the premium, due to be phased out in September, will need a replacement of some kind. Despite what the hon. Member for Southampton, Test (Mr. S. James A....

Oral Answers to Questions — Cbi (Meetings) (22 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Has the Prime Minister considered the position of the Welsh section of the CBI and its concern for the worsening financial position of its small-firm members? The financial position now is worse than after the Conservative Budget of 1970. What support is to be given to small firms in Wales to help obviate a situation which could create unemployment?

Rate Support Grants (22 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Mr. McBride rose——

Rate Support Grants (22 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I have been listening to the exchanges which have occurred. May I remind you respectfully that it is your duty as Mr. Speaker's deputy to protect the rights of backbenchers? Can the Secretary of State for Wales be persuaded to say when he will discuss these matters in the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rent Scrutiny Boards (21 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: asked the Secretary of State for Wales what further consideration he has given to the composition of rent scrutiny boards in Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rent Scrutiny Boards (21 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: As the Secretary of State has executive responsibility for housing in Wales, will he now exclude the professional members from the rent scrutiny boards in favour of the expertise possessed by democratically-elected people? Does he agree that there ought to be a right of appeal from the arbitrary decisions of these rubber-stamping servile bodies so as to give natural justice to 280,000 council...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Schools (Gwent) (21 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman assure me that no school project envisaged or under construction in Swansea will be cancelled or scaled down? Second, will every facility be given to the construction of the Hafod school, the first major school to be built in my constituency in that part of the city since 1903?

Oral Answers to Questions — Eec Ministerial Meetings (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Is it not the case that West Germany has said that on the regional fund it will not buy solidarity at a price, and that, with France, West Germany is opposed to paying the contributions which would be required for the fund to reach the size the British Government hope to see? Will the right hon. Gentleman now admit that there has been an attendant sense of failure on the Government's effort...

Orders of the Day — Improvement Grants (Wales) (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: It falls to me to raise a subject which affects the happiness of thousands in my home city of Swansea and thousands of good Welsh men and women throughout the Principality. In these days of cut-backs in housing, particularly in the public sector, and the inability of many Welsh people to secure a mortgage from either a building society or a local authority, it follows that the improvement...

Orders of the Day — Improvement Grants (Wales) (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: Swansea City Council has approved 1,000 standard grants and made payments amounting to £79,600. This information could have been obtained as a result of my Written Question. But it was not. I am a realist. I accuse the Welsh Office of slothful ineptitude. In a joint circular of 14th September the Secretary of State recommended that local authorities should pay careful regard to the capacity...

Orders of the Day — Improvement Grants (Wales) (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Neil McBride: I listened with interest to what the Secretary of State said about the Housing Act, passed in 1971 when there was overheating in the building industry. No doubt he will have read the article in the Local Government Chronicle which said that builders are not now rushing to tender for local authority houses. If the Government really want to deal with the problem and achieve success, why do they...

Orders of the Day — Improvement Grants (Wales) (16 Jan 1974)

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Import Duties (20 Dec 1973)

Mr Neil McBride: Is the Minister aware that the Tory Government have added to the staggeringly high price increases of food since 1970 by 50p in the pound by passing the Import Duties (General) (No. 8) Order? Is he aware that this will make the bacon-and-egg breakfast and midday meal for many of our people recede further and unhappily into the mists of memory? Is he also aware that his refusal to discontinue...

Orders of the Day — Economic and Energy Situation (19 Dec 1973)

Mr Neil McBride: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The right hon. Gentleman mentioned three disputes and then referred to people on strike.
