Orders of the Day — South and South-East Asia (8 Feb 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that the South Vietnam clique of generals is equally opposed to negotiations and has been bringing pressure to bear on the American Government not to indulge in such negotiations?

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence (26 Apr 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: rose——

Orders of the Day — Guyana Independence Bill (29 Apr 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is it not a fact that the Governor, during the period when the previous Administration of Dr. Jagan was in power, overruled that Administration and placed certain persons in detention, and that the British Government were responsible for making available power to the Governor to take that action?

Orders of the Day — Guyana Independence Bill (29 Apr 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: It is disputed.

Orders of the Day — Guyana Independence Bill (29 Apr 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Would the hon. Gentleman feel satisfied if he were in the position of being able only to appeal to a tribunal which was restricted by the terms of reference quoted by my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Aston (Mr. Julius Silverman)?

Orders of the Day — Guyana Independence Bill (29 Apr 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is it not also true that in point No. 4 it is stated that no formal charge will be preferred against the applicant, but, with due regard to the interests of security, the tribunal will give each applicant a document informing him of the grounds, and so on? Is not this a most unsatisfactory state of affairs? Would the hon. Lady be happy if such provisions applied to any tribunal which was to...

Orders of the Day — Guyana Independence Bill (29 Apr 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: I support the arguments which were advanced by my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Aston (Mr. Julius Silverman) and other of my hon. Friends. It is no part of my object—and this goes for my hon. Friends whose names appear in support of the Amendment—to oppose independence for Guiana or even to postpone it. It is our objective to see that no political prisoners are held when...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (14 Jun 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: It ill becomes the Opposition to attack the Bill in the terms which some hon. Members have employed. It is strange that the hon. Member for Hemel Hempstead (Mr. Allason) should refer to the Bill as a shabby betrayal when we reflect on the amount that the Conservative Government did to tackle this very important problem. It is one which has not arisen in the last couple of years. It has been...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (14 Jun 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: It may be true that they did that, but they took no action during the time that they were in office to deal with this important problem in any effective way. Having said that and having welcomed the Bill in general terms, I want to say, none the less, that I find it a disappointment, to some extent. When the Labour Party was in opposition, it fought the block grant proposals very hard. At...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (14 Jun 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the hon. Gentleman agree with my other remarks, particularly my references to the record of the party opposite?

Vietnam (7 Jul 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: A number of hon. Members have expressed approval of the decision of the Government to hold this debate, and I associate myself with their remarks. It is right and proper that we should be discussing the war in Vietnam. I say that because, first, the war there is of great concern to all hon. Members as human beings—we are concerned at the destruction, suffering and loss of life which is...

Vietnam (7 Jul 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Certain sums are being spent to relieve poverty and misery—on the really important developments which should be taking place in the world—but they are comparatively small compared with the vast sums being spent on arms. The degeneration of both the aims and methods in the war in Vietnam has gone a long way. We have been told that the Americans are there to fight for democracy. Let us be...

Vietnam (7 Jul 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: If arguments like that satisfy the hon. Gentleman, they certainly do not satisfy me. I want to make it quite clear that I believe that the policy of supporting the bombing, this policy that has failed, is completely idiotic. It is stupid for us to say that we are prepared to support the bombing of villages and then say that we are not prepared to support the bombing of towns. It is...

Horticulture Improvement Scheme (11 Jul 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: The proposals in this scheme will be of very great help to those engaged in the horticulture industry. Horticulture is an important industry, accounting for one-tenth of the agricultural output of Great Britain. It is an important import saver, If not a major exporter, and it is important that we should give it some attention. At present some sectors of the industry are in difficulty, and...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Clause 29. — (Amendment of Certain Enactments Relating to Licences.) (20 Oct 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: When this matter was discussed in Committee I was one of those who expressed disquiet at the proposal to abolish gun licences. Nothing that was said in Committee convinced me that my disquiet was misplaced. I am well aware of the arguments that were deployed. We were told, first, that the gun licence provides no real control over the present situation, because anyone can buy a gun licence. We...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Clause 29. — (Amendment of Certain Enactments Relating to Licences.) (20 Oct 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: I beg your pardon, Sir. I was seeking to point out that the argument that insufficient revenue would be raised was, in my view, invalid. Many people will be extremely concerned to learn that gun licences are to be or have been abolished with nothing to replace them. When discussing this matter in Committee, my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary agreed to discuss it with my right hon....

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: The hon. Member says that this is a fact of life. What evidence has he to underline this fact in his experience outside his own new town? I can assure him that this is not the case in Harlow.

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: By the year 2,000 the population of this country will have risen considerably. We shall require houses for millions of people in excess of our present population. In a densely populated island like ours, it is essential that we should plan for the provision of this accommodation and for the location of the increasing population. Everyone is familiar with the mushrooming urban sprawl which...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill: Clause 2. — (Modification of Land Compensation Acts as Respects Extensions of Areas of New Towns.) (11 Nov 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: Would the hon. Gentleman not agree that he should also pay tribute to the 1945–51 Labour Government, who were responsible for laying down the real basis for the new towns when they first began in the post-war years?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Termination of Reviews) Bell (23 Nov 1966)

Mr Arthur Newens: While I welcome the Bill as a whole, I intend to devote the majority of my remarks to Clause 2, which relieves the Secretary of State of the duty to review Section 30(6) of the London Government Act, 1963. This Clause will receive the full support and approbation of the London Teachers' Association, which represents the vast majority of the teachers who serve in the I.L.E.A. area. Many of...
