Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill: CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL (By Order) (3 Apr 1962)

Mr Henry Pott: The hon. Member is talking about a scrubby area. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hands."] He must be fully aware that this comes under a health authority, which has never raised any objections to the abattoirs and the way in which they are run.

Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill: CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL (By Order) (3 Apr 1962)

Mr Henry Pott: The hon. Gentleman is talking as though the borough market was part of Islington. It is not, never has been and never will be. I know that the hon. Gentleman would like the Borough of Islington to take over the land and to put it to another use, but he must face the fact that this area belongs to the Corporation of the City of London. If the hon. Gentleman wishes to take it over—there would...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill: CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL (By Order) (3 Apr 1962)

Mr Henry Pott: I am pleased to hear what the hon. Gentleman says. The fact is that by Statute the 29 acres about which we are speaking happen to fall in one local authority's area. To demand that they should be in some other area is justifiable, but to suggest that they should be returned to Islington without the payment of compensation is complete nonsense. I suggest to the hon. Gentleman that he is...

Public Schools (Entry) (16 Jun 1961)

Mr Henry Pott: I think that that generalisation is most unfair, because certain authorities do this and certain schools are receiving their boys.

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development (Small Boroughs and Towns) (20 Apr 1961)

Mr Henry Pott: After the long debate which we have had on the Budget, it may appear that the subject which I am raising is somewhat mundane and of little importance, but in my opinion it is very closely connected with the major problem of industrial output in this country. Although in any small town the area of industrial production will be small, if it is aggregated over the whole country it becomes a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Factory, Devizes (Closure) (27 Mar 1961)

Mr Henry Pott: asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the closing of the Imperial Tobacco Company's factory in the borough of Devizes; and what action he is taking to find alternative employment for the skilled labour who will lose their jobs.

Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill (10 Mar 1961)

Mr Henry Pott: I support my hon. Friend the Member for Bridgwater (Sir G. Wills). I must, first, declare my interest both as a statutory water undertaker and as one who is connected with local government. I am sure that in some cases these amalgamations between water under-takers are necessary. They have taken into consideration what the effect would be if they were not to receive the grants from the...

Supply (28 Jun 1960)

Mr Henry Pott: Mr. Percivall Pott (Devizes) rose—

Orders of the Day — Supply: Vote 5. National Health Service, England and Wales (12 Mar 1959)

Mr Henry Pott: The right hon. Member for Warrington (Dr. Summerskill) referred to the use of -domestic staff in the maternity homes to ease the staff shortage there. I am sure that the experience of the recent year or two in our big hospitals shows that that is absolutely correct, but I hope that when we consider this matter we shall not forget the many small maternity units in the rural areas, which are...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Vote 5. National Health Service, England and Wales (12 Mar 1959)

Mr Henry Pott: I did point out that I would not object to my right hon. and learned Friend's asking for a Supplementary Estimate, and I mean that. The hon. Member's case has fallen down on that point.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill (10 Nov 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: Is it the intention of the hon. Member that the Government should not move any Bill in the House without the consent of the local branch of the N.F.U.? This matter has been discussed at every level in the agricultural industry for at least the last twenty years.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill (10 Nov 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: Will the hon. Gentleman tell us what he meant when he said that the scheme would be administered by the National Farmers' Union?

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill (10 Nov 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: The hon. Member for Leek (Mr. H. Davies) talked about the very small farmer and his right to farm his small acreage. He should have that right, but if his production is uneconomic he should not be entitled to receive the additional sum received by the economic producer. That is why I congratulate my right hon. Friend on producing this scheme. It will not solve the situation of the very small...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill (10 Nov 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: rose—

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: Why?

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: Today is Wednesday.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (18 Mar 1958)

Mr Henry Pott: I am delighted to hear from the hon. Member for Brecon and Radnor (Mr. Watkins) that the two branches of the farmers' organisation there agree at least in one thing. That would not necessarily make me feel it to be the correct answer. I am amazed to have heard what has been said in the House today about the activities of those people who have served so loyally on the estate management...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (9 Dec 1957)

Mr Henry Pott: I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Small Heath (Mr. Wheeldon) because he has covered such a wide district, but I suggest that the views put forward by him in the earlier part of his speech are as false as those put by him when he said that today is a bad day for local government. In my opinion, as one who has served in local government for twenty-five years, today is a...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill (9 Dec 1957)

Mr Henry Pott: I thank the hon. Member for that explanation. It is not what I had understood him to say. I agree that they received benefit for the original property which was derated, but they did not do so for the new rating. Local government as a whole is receiving benefit now because the Government are not demanding the whole of the benefit from rerating. [Laughter.] It is all very well for hon....
