Orders of the Day — Middle East (Jordan Waters) (25 Mar 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I have waited very patiently, and hoped that it would be possible to raise this matter later on in the debate. Having sat and waited patiently for it, I wanted to find out when it would be possible for me to deal with this subject, particularly in view of the fact that hon. Gentlemen on the other side of the House have been saying that we have been using this debate merely to play out time,...

Foreign Affairs (1 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us what freedom exists in South Vietnam? He has spoken at great length about the defence of the free world. It would be enlightening to some of us if he would tell us what freedom exists in South Vietnam, which we are supposed to be defending.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Surplus Stores (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Secretary of State for Defence why blankets, footwear and engineers' tools, etc., advertised to be sold by auction at Command Ordnance Depot, Kinnegar, Holywood, County Down, were declared to be surplus stores; and whether existing contracts for the provision of similar blankets, footwear and engineers' tools have been cancelled, in view of the existence of the surplus of these articles.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Surplus Stores (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is my hon. Friend satisfied with the present arrangements to make sure that defence stores which are sold as surplus are not disposed of at very considerable loss when they might be used more profitably in other Departments?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Surplus Stores (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will estimate the amount by which the cost of surplus stores exceeded the total sale price realised in their disposal in each of the last three years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Surplus Stores (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is not my hon. Friend deeply concerned that vast quantities of these stores which were sold off in this way need not have been ordered in the first place had various checks been made? Will he consider setting up an inquiry into the whole procedure since the arrangement made some years ago, as a result of the efforts of my hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Dodds), does not...

Orders of the Day — South-East Asia Treaty Organisation (Immunities and Privileges) (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I have no desire to oppose this Order, but I should like to say a word or two on it. As long as we are members of the South-East Asia Treaty Organisation, of course I recognise that it is necessary to extend the hospitalities which are suggested in this Order, but I am sorry that the Order should be necessary and that it should be expected that a meeting in this country of this Organisation...

Orders of the Day — South-East Asia Treaty Organisation (Immunities and Privileges) (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I beg your pardon, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I want to point out in this connection that the hospitality which we are extending to the gentlemen who will be coming to this country contrasts very badly with the treatment which has been handed out to other people who have been desirous of visiting the country, such as Delgado, who was seeking to come here some time ago.

Orders of the Day — South-East Asia Treaty Organisation (Immunities and Privileges) (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I beg your pardon, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, but I want to reiterate that I have great misgivings about the Order being introduced at this time. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why?"] My misgivings are based upon the fact that the people who will be coming to this country will be discussing matters which in my view, and in the view of many hon. Members—

Orders of the Day — South-East Asia Treaty Organisation (Immunities and Privileges) (5 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I will not delay the House longer than is necessary, but I should like to dissociate myself very much from the good will which was expressed by the noble Lady in her last sentence. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why?"] If it were in order I should be delighted to give hon. Members opposite a full-length talk on why I consider it necessary for me to dissociate myself from that message of good will, but...

Economic Assessment: Amendment of the Law (6 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is the hon. Gentleman suggesting that all the difficulties to which he has just referred are the responsibility of the Labour Government who came to power only last October? Does he argue that the Tory Government who then went out of power left the economy in a healthy state?

Bill Presented: General Grant Weighting (Metropolitan Boroughs) (7 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Everyone who knows anything about local government recognises that there are to be very heavy increases in rates during the course of this year. The weighting for general grant to which I wish to draw attention this evening was determined in two Statutory Instruments which were discussed in the House on 15th December, 1964. Ultimately, they depended upon the 1958 Local Government Act, which...

Bill Presented: General Grant Weighting (Metropolitan Boroughs) (7 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I do not intend to go in great detail into the way in which the formula is made up, but I want to refer to the fact that when the Minister was introducing the two Statutory Instruments on 15th December, to which I referred, he mentioned the opposition which he himself has expressed in the past to the 1958 Act on which they were based. He said: I shall not … pretend for one moment that...

Bill Presented: General Grant Weighting (Metropolitan Boroughs) (7 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I did refer to that in my opening remarks, Mr. Speaker. I have had over 40 letters from my constituents and an official petition has been presented to the Minister by the former mayor of the borough about this serious situation. I am, therefore, asking the Minister to consider the general grant and the whole situation in the area. The effect of the increase in the rate poundage has been to...

Teachers (Recruitment) (30 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: But is it not the case that the introduction of comprehensive schools will provide a larger number of children with the opportunity of the sort of education which will fit them for entry into professions which otherwise they might be denied? Will not this help in the long run to overcome the very problem of teacher recruitment?

Teachers (Recruitment) (30 Apr 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Cleveland (Mr. Tinn), I rise at a stage in the debate when many of the points which I might have wished to make have already been made. As a result, I shall merely reiterate certain points which I feel need a certain amount of amplification and one or two which have not been covered adequately. If one is considering the need for teachers, one has to...

Orders of the Day — Rates (5 May 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: If the hon. Member is saying that too much has been spent by his city he must point out what services he would cut in order to make the economies that he thinks desirable. Will he indicate what he thinks those services are?

Orders of the Day — Rates (5 May 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I would not say that the hon. Member for Torquay (Sir F. Bennett) has made an unreasonable case, but I would say that the majority of hon. Members who have spoken from that side of the Committee have struck me with the appalling effrontery with which they have tackled this subject. It is all very well to say that we should not deal with the problem of the last 13 years, but hon. Gentlemen,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Pirate Broadcasting Stations (12 May 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the complaints which have been made by musicians in this country about the infringement of copyright and the evasion of taxation by pirate radio stations? Would he bear these matters in mind when considering the urgency of dealing with this question?
