Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill (9 Nov 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman is referring to what I said, but I have never made any statement of that kind. What I said was that the smallholder ought to- pay a water rate on the existing system by which he was rated, that is all.

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill (9 Nov 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: That suggestion never came from me.

Orders of the Day — Germany (30 Jun 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am afraid the hon. Member is out of Order. This subject on which he is embarking has nothing to do with Germany.

Orders of the Day — Germany (30 Jun 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: This really has nothing to do with the subject of Germany.

Orders of the Day — Germany (30 Jun 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am warning the hon. Member for the third time, and I must ask him to keep off that topic. It is out of Order.

Orders of the Day — Germany (30 Jun 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: It would be in Order if it was connected with Germany.

Orders of the Day — White Fish and Herring Industries Bill: Clause 2. — (Licensing of British fishing boats in North Sea.) (18 Jun 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am glad that the voice of Northern Ireland has been heard in this Debate, and I hope that the hon. Member for West Belfast (Mr. J. Beattie) will get a satisfactory answer to the points he has raised. Far be it from me to strike a discordant note in a Debate which can most aptly be described as a chorus of harmonious blacksmiths; nevertheless, I am sure the Minister will not take it amiss if...

Orders of the Day — White Fish and Herring Industries Bill: Clause 2. — (Licensing of British fishing boats in North Sea.) (18 Jun 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I do not wish the Parliamentary Secretary to misunderstand me. What I said was that at present we are taking out of the North Sea less than half the quantity of herring we took before 1914.

White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (29 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Did I understand the Minister to say that the 1946 Convention was ratified?

White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (29 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Now where are we?

White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (29 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I agree with the hon. and gallant Member for East Hull (Commander Pursey) in welcoming this Bill, which has very good features. I do not agree with everything the hon. and gallant Member said. I thought he made a dangerous remark about over-fishing in distant waters. It may be that there is no over-fishing in those waters at the moment, but nothing is more certain than that if the...

White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (29 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I do not disagree with that. There is no over-fishing there at the present time, but it is one of the things upon which we have to keep a very sharp eye in case we get over-fishing there. By far the most important topic which has been raised in this Debate is the question of over-fishing, which is, of course, far worse in near waters than anywhere else, although it is now appearing again in...

White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (29 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: With one exception, there is no evidence of any over-fishing in the herring industry. It is hardly likely on the figures that I have given, when year after year before 1914 we used to catch over 500,000 tons of herhing, that our present catch of 200,000 tons is likely to produce over-fishing. I admit that, in one particular part, with which the hon. Member is no doubt familiar, there is a...

White Fish and Herring Industries Bill (29 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: My hon. Friend will doubtless read what I have said. The Herring Industry Board is often blamed for not having done things, but it is only right to say that it has up to now been very restricted in its activities by the statutory limitations imposed upon it. That is one of the reasons I welcome this Bill, as it will enable the Board to do a number of things which ought to be done and which I...

Third Schedule. — (Proceedings at Parliamentary Elections.) (27 Apr 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Perhaps it would be convenient if the hon. Member dealt at the same time with the Amendment in line 24, column 2, to leave out from "on," to "the," in line 28.

Orders of the Day — Hire Cars (Radius Restriction) (16 Mar 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Did you win?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Feb 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I think that the comments made by the hon. Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Beswick) on the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Mid-Bedford (Mr. Lennox-Boyd), who opened the Debate, were entirely uncalled for. My hon. Friend is very well-informed on this subject and he delivered an interesting speech. He delivered broadside after broadside of well-merited criticism, and I could see shot after...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Feb 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I have no knowledge of any subsidy received by Scottish Airways, and I should be very interested to hear of it. It is the first I have heard of it. I have every sympathy with B.E.A.C. in wishing to be relieved of this burden of £100,000, and I should look with great interest to see if the Government are going to give this bastard brat of State monopoly what they refuse to give to the...
