Mr John McCann: Inflation was the only thing this Government did at a stroke.

Orders of the Day — Cotton Textile Industry (29 Nov 1971)

Mr John McCann: I raise only two points. First, will the Minister explain how the textile industry can invoke the conditions of the G.A.T.T. regarding the disruption of an industry? Secondly, will the hon. Gentleman make it clear that the textile industry did not ask for tariffs? It asked for tariffs and quotas to run alongside each other for an experimental period, to discover which was best for it.

Orders of the Day — Cotton Textile Industry (29 Nov 1971)

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (17 Nov 1971)

Mr John McCann: After serving 25 years in local government I recognise the need for changing it. At this stage in our proceedings I unashamedly make a point which could better be made in Committee but as we are not to have the Committee stage on the Floor of the House I have to make it now. Having accepted the two-tier system, I recognise the fact that Manchester, as a metropolitan area, is the natural...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Origin Marking (15 Nov 1971)

Mr John McCann: I accept that the new Bill might do some good, but is the hon. Gentleman aware that the position is so serious that mills are closing down now? Am I to understand from what he said that if the textile industry asks for a Bill to restore markings of origin on its products, the Government will find time for it and support it?

Local Employment Bill: Review of Development Area Policies (20 Jan 1970)

Mr John McCann: I, too, will be brief, although it is a considerable time since I had the opportunity to address the House, and to do so now feels rather like making a second maiden speech. I wish to support the idea of a review. Many of us support the Government's policy on development areas, and so does the Hunt Report which suggests that the Government for some years yet must continue the development...

Local Employment Bill: Review of Development Area Policies (20 Jan 1970)

Mr John McCann: A review could do nothing but good because justice would not only be done but would be seen to be done. I am confident that if the recommendations of an impartial body were accepted justice would be done.

Lady the Member for Finchley (Mrs. Thatcher), the hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Mr. Tilney), my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda, East (Mr. G. Elfed Davies), and myself. We were accompanied by Mr. H. R....

The Gambia (Gift of a Speaker's Chair) (13 Dec 1967)

Mr John McCann: After the formal ceremony, we had an opportunity to move about the country, looking at the problems at first hand and discussing them with politicians and industrialists; and we met other people of the Gambia. I feel that as a result of your delegation's visit, Sir, it will not be long before the Gambian Parliament has a woman Member. The gift which we took was a symbol of the real...

Orders of the Day — Defence (Army) Estimates, 1964–65: Vote a. Number of Land Forces (5 Mar 1964)

Mr John McCann: I hope that the hon. Member for Belfast, North (Mr. Stratton Mills) will forgive me if I do not follow him too closely in what he has said about the problems that arise when Service man dies on duty. I hope that the hon. Member succeeds in his plea that the relatives of those killed when serving Her Majesty overseas should be flown out, or the body of the deceased brought home to the family....
