Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers (Salaries) (6 Apr 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is my hon. Friend aware that the Government's prices and incomes policy contained no provision for the suspension of negotiations but that this is what has happened in the case of teachers, and it is causing considerable resentment among teachers? Is he aware of the urgency of improving the basic scale for teachers, particularly the lower end, if the teacher shortage is to be satisfactorily...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: United States Intelligence Organisations (18 Apr 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on his policy towards efforts which are being made by the United States Central Intelligence Agency and other United States intelligence organisations to infiltrate and influence organisations which function in British administered territories for purposes of subversion of law and order.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: United States Intelligence Organisations (18 Apr 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is not my right hon. Friend aware of the involvement of the C.I.A. in British Guiana before independence; and, if he is not aware of that, does not this show a gross inefficiency in the British security services? If the British Government were aware of it prior to independence, why did not they take action to warn the Americans off and to prevent the "fiddler" constitution from being imposed?

European Communities (Membership) (10 May 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I agree with certain of the hon. Gentleman's points about the need for provisions enabling home horticulture to adjust itself, but would not he agree that a great deal has been done by the Labour Government to improve conditions in horticulture? Speaking as a Member who represents part of the Lea Valley, I should have thought that that was self-evident, and it is only right that the hon....

Third London Airport (Stansted) (12 May 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the depths of dismay which will be felt by many of the residents of West Essex, particularly the people who live in Harlow New Town in my constituency? Is he aware of the stupidity and short-sightedness of siting London's third airport in this area where so many other projects are in view which will use up undeveloped ground, and will he assure the House that...

Business of the House (1 Jun 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: When will the Order dealing with the siting of a third London airport at Stansted be debated? Will there be any delay in the placing of the Order as a result of the legal action initiated by Essex County Council?

Orders of the Day — National Airport Policy (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I believe I heard my right hon. Friend say that the cost of Stansted is now to be £55 million, which is an advance of £10 million on the figures so far cited. Have we already advanced by £10 million on the White Paper?

Orders of the Day — National Airport Policy (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I accept that my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade has made a strong case for a third London Airport. I accept that on the basis of prospective growth of passenger and freight traffic there is a need for a third airport, or additional airport facilities, in the London area, but this evening I want to follow the hon. Member for Saffron Walden (Mr. Kirk) by putting forward...

Orders of the Day — National Airport Policy (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I agree with that point. I think that the position around Heathrow is terrible. We should take great pains to ensure that we do not create a problem at Stansted where it does not exist now.

Orders of the Day — National Airport Policy (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I can explain it easily—because people must go where there is work. The creation of a growth point attracts people to that area. We should realise what is likely to happen in the Stansted area. People are often attracted to live and work in places which they would not choose otherwise. I do not consider that the noise nuisance factor is the be all and end all. I would not say on that basis...

Orders of the Day — National Airport Policy (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I think that I have made my case very clear during the debate. Surely the right hon. and learned Gentleman would not deny that the previous Government bear a considerable share of the responsibility for the decision? Does he not agree that it is very unfair to imply that anything else is the case?

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (No. 2) Bill (10 Jul 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I beg to move Amendment No. 14, in page 2, line 9, at the end to insert: (3) The provisions of subsections (1) and (2) of this section shall be disregarded in determining the pension of any employee. The object of this Amendment is to prevent any long-term restriction on a pension, which was surely not intended by the Bill. The intention of the Bill is to provide a limited standstill of...

CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order) (26 Jul 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Much of what I intended to say has been said by the hon. Member for Wanstead and Woodford (Mr. Patrick Jenkin) and by my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham, North (Mr. Arthur Lewis). Despite the arguments which have been put forward about certain aspects of the Bill, particularly those of my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol, Central (Mr. Palmer) and the hon. Member for Ilford, North (Mr....

CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order) (26 Jul 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: The hon. Gentleman will know very well to what I am referring then, and no doubt he will be very familiar with complaints from his constituents about cattle breaking into their gardens and eating their produce and prize flowers. I understand from people who deal with these matters that the cattle are capable of jumping over fences where they are incapable of breaking them down, and quite a...

Vietnamese Students (Admission) (23 Oct 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: What does that matter?

Vietnamese Students (Admission) (23 Oct 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Along with other hon. Members, I should like to pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Hampstead (Mr. Whitaker) for raising this subject in the first place, because it is of vital importance. I was concerned about it before he raised it and I was in correspondence with the Minister on the subject when the students were known to be coming to this country. As others have said, in this...

Vietnamese Students (Admission) (23 Oct 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: As I have been named, may I take this opportunity of making it quite clear that I made no such implication. I did not say that there was not full freedom among students in this country to debate. My hon. Friend has obviously misconstrued what I said. I take the same attitude as my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer) on this matter.

Orders of the Day — Southern Rhodesia (8 Nov 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Are not the leaders of the Opposition in Rhodesia in detention? Is not this a very different state of affairs from that which applies in this country? So much for his comparisons about freedom here and freedom there.

Business of the House (9 Nov 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does my right hon. Friend's answer on the siting of the third London airport indicate that the Government have now decided not to hold a further inquiry despite the facts, including that the original ground—

Business of the House (9 Nov 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Since this matter has not been the subject of an announcement by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade, is it not in order to clarify what exactly is the significance of the statement by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House at this time?
