Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation) Bill (15 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Would the hon. Gentleman give us details of how they were excluded?

Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation) Bill (15 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Like my hon. Friends who have already spoken from this side, I rise to welcome the Bill. In view of the fact that the previous Act expired this year, I find it somewhat hypocritical to refer to the Bill in the terms which were used by the hon. Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page). It seems almost as if hon. Gentlemen opposite are disappointed that the Bill has been introduced, since it deals...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Superannuation Bill (19 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I am sure the Bill will be welcomed in all parts of the House. I congratulate the Government on finding an opportunity so early in the Session to deal with a matter which has been of great concern to teachers over a long period of years. As my right hon. Friend said, this is a comprehensive Bill which relates to 10 Statutes and 100 Orders and will simplify the procedure for ascertaining...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Superannuation Bill (19 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: As I understand it, in the report of the Working Party the maximum percentage allowed is 7 per cent. of salary in respect of back payments, which, added to the existing 2 per cent. for current benefit, plus the 6 per cent., makes 15 per cent. as the maximum permitted in the agreement.

Southern Rhodesia (Constitution Order) (24 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Mr. Stan Newens (Epping) rose——

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill (26 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I shall not detain the House for more than a couple of minutes. This is a very important and non-controversial Measure, and I suggest that that is the reason why there has not been a large attendance in the House this morning. I have no wish to detract from the problems of remote rural areas. I am very conscious of those problems, but the Bill is also important in areas which may not be so...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Superannuation Bill: Clause 3. — (Pensions for Widows, Widowers, Children and Dependants.) (26 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I beg to move Amendment No. 4, in page 4, line 28, after "prescribed", to insert: after the advice of the Board of Management".

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Superannuation Bill: Clause 3. — (Pensions for Widows, Widowers, Children and Dependants.) (26 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: This is not a matter that requires a great deal of explanation. The Report of the Working Party set up by the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Handsworth (Sir E. Boyle) during the last Parliament provided for the administration of the Act to be carried out by a Board of Management, which was to consist of representatives of the teachers and the employers. The Clause would seem to some...

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Superannuation Bill: Clause 3. — (Pensions for Widows, Widowers, Children and Dependants.) (26 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: In view of the assurances which my hon. Friend has given and with which I am very satisfied—as, I am sure, will be the organisations I represent—I beg leave to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Teachers' Superannuation Bill: Schedule 3. — (Enactments Repealed.) (26 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: As one who has played some part in the National Union of Teachers before coming to the House I am delighted that the Bill has gone so rapidly through its various stages so far. It is an important Bill, despite the fact that many of its provisions do not arouse controversy. The simplification of the various regulations relating to teachers' superannuation is extremely important but, as I said...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation) Bill: Clause 1. — (PAYMENTS TO OWNER-OCCUPIERS OF UNFIT HOUSES. 1957 c. 56.) (29 Nov 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I support what my hon. Friend the Member for Wood Green (Mrs. Joyce Butler) said about the Amendment. I share the concern which has been expressed on both sides of the House about the people referred to in this debate. As I said during the Second Reading debate, I think that considerable injustice will be created by fixing a deadline in 1950, because a situation will be created in which next...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Waltham Abbey, Essex (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Minister of Transport what short-term and long-term plans he has for improving the flow of traffic through Waltham Abbey in Essex.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Waltham Abbey, Essex (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is my hon. Friend aware of the great need for bringing forward the date of the construction of the D-Ring Road to carry through traffic in this area, since the narrow streets of Waltham Abbey are unsuitable, even with a one-way system, to carry through traffic?

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (7 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the hon. Gentleman wish the Smith régime to be brought down or does he wish it to survive? Are his real considerations for the Zambians and others or for the Smith régime and its ability to survive? If the hon. Gentleman supports the Smith régime, why not come out and say so, instead of putting forward hypocritical ideas about the people of Zambia and the misery which might be...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (7 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that the attitude taken by many back bench Members on his own side of the House has greatly contributed to the attitude being taken by the African States to which he has referred?

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (7 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I want to say how grateful I am to my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer) for raising the subject-matter of the debate. It is very important that we should have an opportunity to discuss it, and the debate has been timely and appropriate. I should be less than honest if I said that I am other than profoundly disappointed by what the Prime Minister said today. I am very...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (7 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: I consider that it is not enough to count the moral effect of such a move lightly, because basically what we must seek to do in this country is to win the support of the majority of the Rhodesian population against Smith. I do not think that permitting this ship to go through will help to win over that population to our point of view. I believe that all necessary measures, including force,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Allied Travel Office, Berlin (East Germans) (13 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will enter into discussions with other members of the North Atlantic Alliance with a view to making it possible for East German citizens to travel to the West in compassionate cases without recourse to the West Berlin Travel Office.

Oral Answers to Questions — Allied Travel Office, Berlin (East Germans) (13 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, which goes some way—[HON. MEMBERS: "A long way."] —to meet some of the difficulties which my constituent experienced, may I ask him whether he agrees that, in the case which I referred to the Foreign Office, people in the Eastern Zone were prevented from visiting the West, not by the East German Government, bat by these very antiquated and now...

Orders of the Day — Housing Subsidies Bill (15 Dec 1965)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is it not the fact that many local authorities are obliged to resort to rate subsidies in order to lighten the housing revenue account burden? Will not these subsidies alleviate the task of local authorities in this respect?
