Orders of the Day — Protection from Eviction Bill (18 Nov 1964)

Mr Gordon Oakes: I rise with some trepidation because, like my hon. Friend the Member for Epping (Mr. Newens) and the hon. Member for Wanstead and Woodford (Mr. Patrick Jenkin), this is the first occasion on which I have had the privilege of addressing this House. If I err, I beg that you, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, and the House will forgive any mistakes I make. One mistake I thought I might make was that of being...

Clause 1. — (Restriction on Recovery of Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Gordon Oakes: Has the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson) any examples of the Railways Board taking possession of railway cottages without going through the county court procedure; whether there are any forcible evictions taking place—and where?

Clause 1. — (Restriction on Recovery of Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Gordon Oakes: Because there is only one Railways Board but many farmers.

Clause 3. — (Restrictions on Operation of Foregoing Sections.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Gordon Oakes: If I may refer to the remarks of the hon. Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page), his argument would be attractive if there were a large number of cases of the kind which he has described. But surely the vast majority of genuine prospective purchasers who are doing a deal through a solicitor's office would not enter into a contract in the circumstances in which there was a tenant—

Clause 3. — (Restrictions on Operation of Foregoing Sections.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Gordon Oakes: If they did enter a contract in the way in which the hon. Member suggested, they would be as bad as the landlord who was trying to evict the tenant. To cater for the very few cases that may be involved, it opens the floodgates, because it could well happen that a company would sell to one of its directors a fraudulent contract bearing a date that had been inserted later, a document that had...

National Assistance (Increased Scales) (15 Dec 1964)

Mr Gordon Oakes: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Coatbridge and Airdrie (Mr. Dempsey), I wish to congratulate my right hon. Friend on her courage in bringing forward these increases. It demonstrates that this Government are vitally concerned about those most in need and determined that they shall receive help. I should like information from my right hon. Friend regarding the vexed question of the wage...

Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords] (20 Jan 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: The Bill has rightly been welcomed by both sides of the House, and I, too, would like to congratulate the Government on bringing in this necessary legislation which will provide a high degree of security for infants who have their moneys invested in court, and also give them some capital appreciation, because the delay in implementing some of the proposals of the Pearson Report has lost them...

Oral Answers to Questions — United Nations: South Africa (1 Mar 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action has been taken in response to the United Nations Committee's Report on sanctions; and if he will make a statement.

Bill Presented: Firearms Bill (2 Mar 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: Although for most of the afternoon I have felt a little lonely on the back benches on this side of the House, I am sure that the absence of my hon. Friends shows their complete agreement with the Bill and their absolute confidence in the competence of my right hon. and learned Friend to ensure that the House gives it a Second Reading. It is an important Bill, which is to be welcomed by all...

Bill Presented: Firearms Bill (2 Mar 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: I accepted the reasons given by my right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary why it would be impossible to do that. I was referring to criminals and to the fact that they should not be allowed to have firearms, including shotguns, but I accepted the point made by my right hon. and learned Friend.

Bill Presented: Firearms Bill (2 Mar 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: This Bill will bring in many dealers who at present are not recognised dealers—people who are dealing in shot guns. Will my hon. Friend make these excellent conditions, which he has outlined, regulations for all sources and not merely the decision of a particular chief constable? Will he make them regulations of this House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Road Accidents (Christmas and New Year) (3 Mar 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: asked the Minister of Transport if he has yet completed his study of the causes of road accidents which occurred at Christmas 1964; and whether he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Road Accidents (Christmas and New Year) (3 Mar 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: When my right hon. Friend receives the figures of the Road Research Laboratory, will he ask them to differentiate between those drivers who drink regularly and those who do not normally drink throughout the year but have a drink at an office party or with their friends at Christmas? Is my right hon. Friend aware that the results of such analysis may provide some startling information?

COMMONS REGISTRATION BILL [Lords] (28 Apr 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: I agree with the hon. Member for Totnes (Mr. Mawby) that this Measure should be the first step in quite comprehensive commons legislation. Incidentally, I believe that the correct technical term for those who use the commons in Devon is "potboilers". Some hon. Members opposite have expressed pleasure that my right hon. Friend should have taken this Measure out of the pigeon-hole. Who put...

Traffic Wardens (11 May 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: I, too, would like some clarification of this Order from my hon. Friend, particularly on the question of enforcement. The point has been well expressed—if it will not be considered presumptuous of me to say so—by the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Mr. Sharples) and also in the interventions of the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) and the hon. Member for Runcorn (Mr. Carlisle)....

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Arthritis, Rheumatism and Bronchitis (24 May 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether she will include arthritis, rheumatism and bronchitis in the list of prescribed industrial diseases.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Arthritis, Rheumatism and Bronchitis (24 May 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: Is my right hon. Friend aware that many hundreds and thousands of workers spend their lives in soaking wet conditions and that the incidence of rheumatism, arthritis and bronchitis, particularly among those in their 50s and 60s, is high? Is she further aware that a minority Report in 1955 was strongly in favour of the inclusion of these diseases in the list of industrial diseases?

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Land Commission and Housing (11 Nov 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: Before the hon. Gentleman proceeds, when he refers to "copyhold" is he intending to mean "Crownhold"?

Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation) Bill (15 Nov 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: From these benches, I warmly welcome the Bill. It is not without significance that this is the first domestic Measure of this Session, and it deals with owner-occupiers. I want the House to note the number of hon. Members present on this side and the few on the benches opposite. The Bill will be of great benefit to many thousands of people in my constituency of Bolton and elsewhere. It is...

Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation) Bill (15 Nov 1965)

Mr Gordon Oakes: That is the position at the moment and all the Bill does is to extend it to other categories of owner-occupiers. Under paragraph (5) of Schedule 2 of the Housing Act a person can go to the county court, and the Bill extends it further.
