Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Clause 1. — (General Grants.) (5 May 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I do not know whether my right hon. Friend's argument is that our ratepayers are, on the whole, less burdened than ratepayers in other parts of the country. Surely the rate poundage which he has quoted is not the true measure. The true measure is the rateable value, and the rate burden per head of the population.

Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Adjustments Transitional on Coming into Effect of Part I.) (6 May 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I was glad that my hon. Friend the Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Mr. Teeling) began his speech by reminding the Committee that we are not solely concerned with seaside resorts. The seaside resorts form perhaps about one-half of the category of town of which we are speaking. The others are inland watering places, spas, cathedral cities and some of the larger market towns—the heartland, if I...

Tourist Industry (23 May 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I think it not inappropriate that on the Motion for the Adjournment for the Whitsun Recess the House should turn its mind to the problems of the tourist industry of Great Britain. My hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade has recently taken the initiative in calling a conference, under the auspices of the British Travel and Holidays Association, to discuss this...

Tourist Industry (23 May 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I was calling the attention of the Parliamentary Secretary to the fact that there is a cumulative result. I was not suggesting that we could now repeal or amend the Local Government Bill. I was suggesting that its effect might be one consideration that we should take into account when viewing the general question. It was a mere illustration and I need not pursue it. It would also be quite...

Tourist Industry (23 May 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: At our expense.

Orders of the Day — Chequers Estate Bill (11 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: When, in 1917, Lord Curzon introduced a Bill in the House of Lords to give effect to the wishes of Sir Arthur Lee, as he then was, he described Chequers as "a temple of reconciliation and a haunt of peace." That was the intention of Sir Arthur Lee and. I do not think that anybody would deny that his wishes have not only been carried out but actually extended. Chequers has become much more...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Amendments of Deed.) (16 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I beg to move, in page 7, line 20, after "hereof", to insert: except those specified in the catalogue mentioned in clause 3 of the deed". On Second Reading I suggested that Parliament should be scrupulous in setting aside the terms of a trust settlement and should do so only if we could show conclusively that circumstances had changed since the date when the settlement was made. The Leader of...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Amendments of Deed.) (16 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: In view of what my hon. and learned Friend said, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Amendments of Deed.) (16 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I beg to move, in page 8, line 2, to leave out from "Chequers)" to "In" in line 4, and to insert: paragraphs (d) and (e) shall be omitted.14. The following clauses shall be inserted after clause 15 of the deed15A.".

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Amendments of Deed.) (16 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: That is so. They go together and refer to the power given to the trustees to make alterations to the external appearance of the house. The Schedule is widely drawn and omits a great many of the provisos which Lord Lee inserted in the deed under the 1917 Act. But, in my opinion, these excisions are far too drastic. Lord Lee requested that the architectural details of Chequers should remain...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Amendments of Deed.) (16 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I am sure the assurances my hon. and learned Friend has given will satisfy the Committee. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Aircraft Industry, Bournemouth (Draughinmen) (21 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: This is a combined operation by Bournemouth, East and Bournemouth, West to bring to the attention of the Government the apprehensions of a very important group of constituents. It may seem a little strange that an area of the country which is regarded as well-favoured by climate and employment should seek to bring before the House fears about the future. The particular reason is that this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Southern Italy — Athens (Air Route) (23 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether the recent discussions at the International Civil Aviation Organisation have resulted in the realigning of the civil air-routes between southern Italy and Athens so as to reduce the risk that aircraft will accidentally cross the Albanian coast-line.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Southern Italy — Athens (Air Route) (23 Jul 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Does my hon. Friend recall the incident earlier this year when a British "Skymaster", owing to a minute navigational error, overflew Albanian territory and was forced down by Albanian fighters? Does not my hon. Friend think that urgent action is required in order to re-align the route? Am I to understand from his Answer that it is a matter not for the International Civil Aviation Organisation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Aircraft Accident, Southall (Public Inquiry) (12 Nov 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: If there is any question of referring this matter to the Director of Public Prosecutions, would not it be better to hold the official inquiry first in order to establish whether there is a prima facie case to go before the courts? Would my right hon. Friend undertake to make available to the charter company concerned all the evidence, including the recordings of the messages that passed...

Local Government (Grants) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: In spite of all his energy and ingenuity the hon. Member for Fulham (Mr. M. Stewart) has found it difficult to conceal the embarrassment of the Opposition over the disparity between their past claims and the reality which they see before them in this Order. I, like many of my hon. Friends, heard day after day in Standing Committee prophecies made by hon. Members opposite that the General...

Local Government (Grants) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The hon. Member's authority must be as alive to what is going on as has been my own local authority, and so would the hon. Member have been. I obtained a copy of the General Grant Order within an hour of its being available in the Vote Office. I am sure that the hon. Member did the same. I immediately got in touch with my local authority. We had discussions on it over the weekend and I have...

Local Government (Grants) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: While the hon. Member has been talking, I have been comparing the figures for Huddersfield given in the original White Paper with those given in the Government's latest estimates. Taking school children alone, a subject upon which the hon. Member has concentrated, I notice that between the two documents the figure for Huddersfield has gone up from £136,000 to £278,000. How did the hon....

Local Government (Grants) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: If one compares the totals in the last columns of the two documents, one sees that, in total, Huddersfield is likely to receive £990,000 compared with £683,000. That represents an increase of over £300,000 for this one county borough. How can the hon. Member claim that Huddersfield will be worse off?

Local Government (Grants) (8 Dec 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Yes.
