Orders of the Day — Cyprus (5 May 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Because they have refused it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Sea Defences (24 Nov 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will set up a research board to investigate basic problems of coast erosion and flooding, and to give advice to river boards and coast protection authorities on the type of sea defences most suited to their local conditions.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Sea Defences (24 Nov 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Would not my right hon. Friend agree that the two institutions to which he refers are not very well known to local authorities, and that usually it is left to the initiative, and comparatively amateur knowledge, of county council engineers to erect these defences? In consequence, bad mistakes have very often been made, resulting in the loss of thousands of pounds to the local ratepayers....

Business of the House (24 Nov 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: On a point of order. Mr. Speaker. This has been the second day running when questions on Israel and the Arab States have been asked, but it has not been possible for any back bencher on this side of the House to put a question to the Prime Minister. Is it not unfortunate that our point of view should not be made public? Does the priority given to Privy Councillors apply also to Question Time,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Jet Engines (Noise) (28 Nov 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Supply how much research has been done by his Department to discover a method of reducing the noise of jet engines while they are being tested in aircraft on the ground; and what are the results of that research.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Jet Engines (Noise) (28 Nov 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Will my right hon. Friend say that we have not yet perfected a device for reducing the noise of jet engines under test, and whether, when such a device is perfected, it will be obligatory for aircraft manufacturing companies to install it in factories close to built-up areas?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Doctors (Urban Areas) (5 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Health how low the average number of patients per doctor must be in an urban area before the Medical Practices Committee declares the area to be restricted against the entry of new doctors.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Doctors (Urban Areas) (5 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Is it not the fact that where the average number of patients per doctor is as low as this, if new doctors are introduced into such an area they confer upon the patients no additional benefits but are driven into an unwelcome form of competition against each other for new patients?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: British School of Archaeology, Jerusalem (Grant) (6 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will increase the Treasury grant to the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: British School of Archaeology, Jerusalem (Grant) (6 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Is it not true that my right hon. Friend has the final say in what the grants should be? Is it not regrettable that the British School, which has done such outstanding work on the Jericho excavations and the Dead Sea Scrolls, should be the only school in Jerusalem to be closed down for nine months of the year through shortage of funds?

Middle East (12 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The right hon. Gentleman seems to be suggesting that United Nations has done nothing more than provide day-by-day relief to keep the Arab refugees alive. In fact, since 1951 there has, in addition, been a capital sum of 200 million dollars available to the Arab States—

Middle East (12 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: —to resettle the refugees, but, so far, all they have spent of that sum is 7 million dollars.

Middle East (12 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Could the right hon. and learned Gentleman be a little more explicit on this interesting suggestion? He is really making two suggestions, the first that the number of observers should be increased, and the second that in some way we should establish on the border an international police force carrying arms. The police will, presumably, keep the two combatants apart. Does not the right hon....

Middle East (12 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Yes.

Ancient Monuments, South-West England (16 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I beg to second the Motion. I would begin by apologising to the House and in particular to the hon. Member for Swindon (Mr. F. Noel-Baker), who has so ably moved the Motion, and the Minister for the fact that I shall probably not be able to remain to hear my right hon. Friend's reply. I have an engagement which it is impossible for me not to keep. It may seem strange that the House should...

Town and Country Planning (21 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: In view of the lack of time, I shall cut out much more than half of what I intended to say, and I hope that hon. Members will not regard the shortness of my speech as diminishing in any way from the importance of the subject I wish to raise. Six months ago, the Architectural Review published a special issue about the increasing defacement of our town and countryside by ill-planned,...

Town and Country Planning (21 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: —let him leave on his desk for his successor the OFFICIAL REPORT of this short debate, having marked with red ink all the relevant passages attacking, as the Architectural Review has attacked, this outrage on our land. Let us not wait another decade before something constructive, or, as we put it in our Motion to which I have referred, something creative, is done to save the countryside and...

Town and Country Planning (21 Dec 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The right hon. Gentleman really is misrepresenting me. Having cut out three-quarters of my speech, I yet had time to say that I was not proposing any powers of compulsion at all. The right hon. Gentleman must be familiar with the Council of Industrial Design. Let him take that as a model for my council, for things out-of-doors, whereas the Council deals only with things indoors.

LICENSING (AIRPORTS) BILL [Lords] (7 Feb 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes) has asked about the origin of the Bill and has suggested that there is a murky financial interest behind it. I have had nothing to do with promoting the Bill and I came into the Chamber only to listen to the discussion. I rise to give the reaction of an hon. Member on this side of the House who is in favour of the Bill, because, so far, we...

Capital Punishment (16 Feb 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I am one of those on this side of the House who intend to vote for the Amendment. I should like, in a very few minutes, because so many of my hon. Friends and other hon. Gentlemen wish to speak, to explain the reasons why. In both speaking and voting in this way, I am very conscious of the fact that a majority of my constituents, were they in the same position, would speak and vote in the...
