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

Mr Nigel Nicolson: No, I referred to it constantly and our Chairman did not call me to order once. I have made this point because my main attack is clearly, in the terms of this Amendment concentrated on my own Front Bench, and I did not wish to give the impression that I thought all the fault lay on one side. Hon. Gentlemen opposite clearly found there was something strange, even something faintly comic, in...

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

Mr Nigel Nicolson: It may be equally true for the South Coast of England, in a rather more stilted and less expressive style to say, "Where there is sand, there is penury", because it is true that the seaside resorts are picked out by this Bill and put into a category of special disadvantage. I explained during the Committee stage why this was so, and I will not weary this Committee with the reasons once...

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

Mr Nigel Nicolson: My right hon. Friend dealt with that very well in his speech just now. He said that these places attract the retired person just as much as they attract the holidaymaker, and it is the retired person upon whom the burden of inflation has fallen most hardly. It is even more inexcusable that those places should be singled out for particularly harsh treatment solely by the method of calculating...

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

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The hon. Gentleman is not correct in saying that authorities to which I have referred were previously in receipt of certain equalisation grants. They never were and are not to be now.

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

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I do not know how the hon. Member can make that statement. Not only were references made to this subject in the strongest terms on Second Reading, and even in debates on the original White Paper, but they were made consistently throughout the Committee stage and by letter and interview with the Minister throughout the last year.

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 — Budget Proposals: Wallasey Corporation Bill (15 Apr 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Before the hon. Member for Enfield, East (Mr. Ernest Davies) asks leave to withdraw the Instruction, would it be possible, Mr. Speaker, for me to express a point of view which has not yet been put?

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals: Wallasey Corporation Bill (15 Apr 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I thought that the hon. Member had not yet asked leave to withdraw the Motion, but was about to do so.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals: Wallasey Corporation Bill (15 Apr 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I intended to make a short speech, rather more than an intervention in the speech of the hon. Member for Enfield, East. If I speak for five minutes, I hope that the hon. Member will not think that an impertinence. I have no brief for the Wallasey Corporation and the only reason I intervene is to put the point of view of the resort towns on these two suggested Clauses. They affect the 150...

Hadrian's Wall (2 Apr 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I am glad that the hon. Member for Islington, East (Mr. E. Fletcher) began his speech by paying tribute to Mrs. Hawkes. Lest anybody imagines that she is an archaeological busybody or an amateur, it was good to have a reminder from the hon. Member that she is one of the most distinguished archxologists of her day. In addition—the combination is not always automatic—Mrs. Hawkes is also...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Stonehenge (25 Feb 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Works whether he now has firm proposals for re-erecting the trilithon at Stonehenge.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Stonehenge (25 Feb 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: May I thank my right hon. Friend for making this firm decision and for making the model available? Am I not correct in thinking that there is no question of faking Stonehenge but simply of re-erecting some of the original stones into the positions they were known to occupy until they fell less than 200 years ago?

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Brindisi — Athens Air Route (22 Jan 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will make representations to the International Civil Aviation Organisation that the present air route recommended to civil aircraft flying between Brindisi and Athens passes too close to the Albanian frontier, and that the route should be realigned to pass further south; and whether he will recommend to the International Civil...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Brindisi — Athens Air Route (22 Jan 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that the recent accident involving a British Skymaster which was forced down in Albania might not have had such, a happy conclusion if it had involved, say, a British aircraft coming back from Cyprus with uniformed troops on board? Would not he agree that it would be a change for the better for everybody concerned if the air route could be taken further...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (10 Dec 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: While the hon. Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas) was speaking I was glancing at the Amendment which the Opposition have proposed against the Second Reading of the Bill. Having sat here throughout most of these two days, I have heard very little mention of any part of the Amendment except for the penultimate sentence. Hardly any hon. Member opposite has hacked up the complaint that the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (10 Dec 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Those towns obtain through the rate deficiency grant and the rate product deduction advantages which are not open to the other type of towns which I have mentioned. The hon. Member said that it was the poorer towns, seeking to instance his own, which would be at a disadvantage, but it is the other way round.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (10 Dec 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I apologise to the hon. Member for Cardiff, West for taking his constituency as an example, but he knows very well the point I am trying to make. On the whole, at the moment and under the provisions of the Bill an attempt is being made to iron out those inequalities of income throughout the country and to provide roughly the same service in each of the categories of local government to each...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (10 Dec 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Does the hon. and learned Gentleman really believe all that?

Civic Trust (29 Jul 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: All those who have been disturbed at the increasing defacement of our town and countryside by ill-planned development will have heard with relief of the recent formation of the Civic Trust. This body is wholly unofficial and does not depend to any extent upon Government funds, but as it is likely to be one of the most influential and, I hope, one of the most affluent of all the bodies...

Civic Trust (29 Jul 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The work of the Civic Trust is, I respectfully suggest, Sir, very relevant to my hon. Friend's Ministry. I began by saying that, and I was going on to suggest the practical ways in which I think the Minister can help the Trust, and the means by which the Trust can help the Minister. Here we have two bodies; one official and one non-official, working in the same field, and I am trying, in this...
