Results 1–20 of 1138 for speaker:Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe

Civil Aviation (Noise Certification) (20 Apr 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I readily adhere to your appeal, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to keep my remarks short, since a large number of hon. Members whose constituents, like mine, are having their lives rendered at frequent intervals well-nigh unbearable because of aircraft noise wish to speak. I welcome the Order in the sense that at least it is a first step towards calling a halt to a situation which is becoming, if one...

Civil Aviation (Noise Certification) (20 Apr 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: It is. It should not go out from this House that this is a panacea for the future for solving all the problems of aircraft noise. I do not think it is.

Agriculture Bill: Recovery of Possession of a Dwelling-House Occupied by a Person Primarily Engaged in Agriculture (7 Apr 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I support my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, South (Mr. J. E. B. Hill), who so ably moved the new Clause, and I ask the Minister to look at the problem again. What is to be done with a surplus farm house which is only temporarily surplus? It is a practical problem, well known in the whole of agriculture, to which we are trying to find a solution. There are a number of ways in which a...

Orders of the Day — Mental Hospitals (11 Feb 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Nobody who has listened to this debate and who has heard the statistics which have emerged as to the numbers of people admitted annually into mental homes and hospitals, and the comments about the size of wards and the lack of career structure in that branch of the medical service, could have any doubt about the importance of this subject which is before the House tonight. It should help to...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations (Amendment) Bill (6 Feb 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I had not intended to intervene when I came into the House this morning, but having listened to all the speeches, I find it difficult to understand how anybody who considers the problem objectively can fail to support the Bill. It must be clear that there is something very wrong with the existing legislation if the kinds of absurdities which have been mentioned—in one case arising out of an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Heathrow Airport (Noise) (28 Jan 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: asked the President of the Board of Trade by what date he estimates that an effective automatic noise-monitoring system will be installed at Heathrow Airport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Heathrow Airport (Noise) (28 Jan 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Can the Minister say whether this rather astonishing delay is due to the fact that the Post Office cannot supply four telephone lines of the required technical qualification and reliability?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Heathrow Airport (Noise) (28 Jan 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: asked the President of the Board of Trade on now many occasions in the last two years an airline has admitted that its pilot was at fault in violating the noise regulations at Heathrow; and how many violations of the noise regulations were recorded by the authorities at Heathrow in this period.

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Heathrow Airport (Noise) (28 Jan 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Can the right hon. Gentleman give any explanation of the discrepancy between the two figures? Could it be due to the fact that, very often, the monitoring of an aircraft takes place only when it is on the prescribed route and not when it is off the prescribed route?

Heathrow Airport (Safety Standards) (27 Jan 1970)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I agree with the hon. Member for Glasgow, Govan (Mr. Rankin) that the House is indebted to my hon. Friend the Member for Woking (Mr. Onslow) for raising this very important subject. With the great increase in the volume of aircraft traffic every year, which is inevitable, the safety factor obviously is paramount, and not only to the large number of passengers who take off and land every day...

Agriculture Bill (6 Nov 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I am sorry that the hon. Lady the Member for Wood Green (Mrs. Joyce Butler) is not in her place. Listening to her speech—unless I misunderstood it—I thought that she seemed to be nervous lest the 12 members of the Eggs Authority were not consumers of eggs. She feared that the consumer interest would be under-represented. I should have thought that it would be difficult to find anybody to...

Northern Ireland (13 Oct 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Would the right hon. Gentleman agree that what he has just told the House is a self-confession that he has allowed the Army to run down too much?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (18 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I will not follow the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Sheldon) very far in his interesting speech except to comment that he apparently discovered that those who have high earnings react violently against punitive taxation. Surely the first priority for any Chancellor of the Exchequer is to try to increase the nation's wealth in both the public and private sectors. Having done that, he...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (18 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I am talking about what is in the Bill, Mr. Speaker. If one finances maintenance from an overdraft and improvements out of other capital, one gets no tax relief, but if one does it the other way around one is all right. On the repayment of a long-term mortgage by 1975, with perhaps 20 years to run, great upset will be caused, particularly for agriculture, which may result in the fragmentation...

Overseas Representation (Report of Review Committee) (16 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Now that the Diplomatic Service has been subjected twice in five years to a major inquiry, the first being the Plowden Commission and the second being the Duncan Committee, and both those inquiries having rightly paid a warm tribute to the work of the Service, would it not now be the best thing to allow the Service to get on with its work quietly, without any further committees of inquiry in...

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I support my right hon. Friend the Member for Grantham (Mr. Godber) and my hon. Friends who have spoken so forcefully and clearly to the Amendment. I hope that the Chief Secretary will not run away with the idea that this is not a very big issue, because it is. What we are debating is how, in respect of tax relief, loan facilities will be treated for the maintenance of all the agricultural...

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: I beg to move Amendment No. 238, in page 21, line 43, at end insert 'or (d) in carrying out any works for which a grant has been, or will be, given on the advice of the appropriate Historic Buildings Council'.

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Mr. Speaker, I shall respond to your request and be extremely brief. At the outset, I should explain that the hon. Member for Barking (Mr. Driberg) and I are the two Parliamentary representatives on the Historic Buildings Council for England. The Amendment is drafted with the words the appropriate Historic Buildings Council because there are separate councils for Scotland and Wales and we...

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: The hon. Gentleman knows very well how the means test is conducted. The owner's resources are gone into with very great care. There has never been any dispute about that. I am pointing out the ridiculous anomaly which will arise between a grant given before Budget day and a grant given after Budget day. This will raise serious complications. It will mean that an owner who applies for a...

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe: Will the Chief Secretary clarify a point. We are not dealing with a house assessed under Case 1 of Schedule D, which deals with businesses. Any loan for a business qualifies for tax relief. What we are dealing with are those houses where a loss is incurred under case 6 and can only be set against corresponding profit under the same section. It could of course be that someone might have a...
