Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Petrol Supplies (23 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: The reports reaching me and others say that many thousands of retail establishments are likely to run short of petrol and associated fuels at a very early date. Does my hon. Friend recall, for example, that only yesterday a banner headline in the Sunday Telegraph announced that 8,000 establishments would run out of petrol shortly? Is all this to be lightly discarded by no ministerial answer...

Inflation (18 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Sir Gerald Nabarro (Worcestershire, South) rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Cigarettes (17 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, in view of the rise in cigarette consumption by 6½ per cent. during 1972, if he will now take steps additional to the publication of tar and nicotine content to dissuade cigarette smokers, notably young smokers, from developing the habit, including seeking to include health warnings on duty-free supplies at airports and on ships; and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Cigarettes (17 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Has not my right hon. Friend recognised from my hostile supplementary questions that I dismiss absolutely the excuses he has given for continued delay in trying to prevent the inordinate rise in cigarette smoking, now estimated at 6 per cent. last year? Until he resorts to legislation there will surely be no cure. Will he not now relent before the onset of the new Session and introduce...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Giro (16 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: May we have the accounts for the last financial year presented in such a form as to enable us to analyse precisely what contribution is made by this service—which many of us regard as a waste of time and money—and to see whether it is truly profitable and in the national interest or ought to be supplanted by a different form of service altogether?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Railways (Government Policy) (11 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: While congratulating my right hon. Friend on his impeccable debating behaviour the other day, may I ask him to take note of an omission from the debate due to the brevity of speeches all round—with one notable exception—and that was the realisation of the huge real estate value of the land that is available on British Railways and which now ought to be liquidated in order to reinforce...

Oral Answers to Questions — Tyres (Tread Depth) (11 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has studied the effect of the 1 mm tread depth legislation standards of tyres in the United Kingdom; whether he is aware that foreign countries including the United States of America, statutorily require up to a minimum of 1·59 mm tread; and, having regard to safety considerations of tread depth at the minimum of 2 mm, whether he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Tyres (Tread Depth) (11 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Does not my right hon. Friend recognise that probably the largest single area of road accidents is caused by faulty tyres, and that the United States of America has long recognised that by imposing a minimum depth of tread of 1·59 mm, which is nearly 60 per cent. greater than that extant in the United Kingdom? As it has proved entirely successful in the United States, why could not we...

Oral Answers to Questions — New Zealand Prime Minister (10 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Has my right hon. Friend observed this morning that the New Zealand frigate sent by the New Zealand Government to observe the nuclear explosions was 45 miles from the site? As this is an exceedingly dangerous international development, may I ask what action my right hon. Friend proposes to take to influence the future course of action by the French Government?

Sir Gerald Nabarro: asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what reduction in electric power station construction programmes there will be for the five years 1974–78, inclusive, or other convenient period, as part of the reduction in expenditure on nationalised industries, announced recently by the Chancellor of the Exchequer; what danger of power cuts will thereby be engendered and what further...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Power Station Construction ( 9 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: As the prognosis for the next five to seven years shows that there will be a declining supply of petroleum fuels and an increased demand for coal, has my hon. Friend considered the prospect of increasing the number of coal-fired power stations, notably in the North-East and the North of England, and of reducing the number of oil-fired stations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Electricity Generation (Oil Consumption) ( 9 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: I endorse the wisdom of my hon. Friend's reply, but will he now confirm that all available coal in the foreseeable future—that is, in the next few years—will be available for burning under power station boilers and that the CEGB will not resort to oil fuel unless that is absolutely necessary?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: French Nuclear Tests ( 4 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Returning to Pitcairn Island, is my right hon. Friend aware that in answer to my questions the Prime Minister has persisted indignantly in saying that the allegations about radioactive material leading to the reduction of flora and fauna to negligible proportions on the island were not true, that no radioactive presence had been found on the island, and that it was not until last May, as a...

Railways ( 4 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: I was pleased to hear the hon. Member for Derby, South (Mr. Walter Johnson) refer to the document that my right hon. Friend called a mobile document. A few weeks ago my right hon. Friend suggested that it had found its way into print largely because of a leak in a high quarter of British Railways and that nobody had traced how this had occurred. The document gained wide credence and contained...

Railways ( 4 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: My right hon. Friend and I have co-operated over 20 years in this place and I know him well enough to know that he is exceedingly distasteful of any form of bureaucratic activity. I repeat, whatever is the form of documentation that is eventually decided upon, be it a voluminous paper or a White Paper, he will have to delineate his policies. When he does so, I trust that he will spare a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministerial Broadcast ( 3 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Has my right hon. Friend had his attention drawn to the recent statement by Mr. Hugh Scanlon to the effect that the nation may expect increased disturbances in the autumn, no doubt destined to coincide with the arrival of phase 3 of the incomes policy? Will my right hon. Friend make it perfectly clear now, well in advance of the autumn, that the present Government do not propose to be...

Orfordness Radar Station ( 2 Jul 1973)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Is not the greatest concentration of scientific equipment and manpower in Britain located at the Royal Radar Establishment at Malvern, and will my right hon. Friend say whether any of the surplus equipment can be absorbed at Malvern and, having regard to the rationalisation of the Royal Radar Establishment as announced in the Defence White Paper, whether any redundant staff could not easily...
