Surrey Floods (3 Apr 1969)

Mr William Robson-Brown: I am glad of this opportunity to raise the question of the serious floods in my constituency. I wish at the outset to express the indignation that is felt by my constituents because the Government have not instituted a public inquiry without delay into the flooding which occurred in my part of the world. The Government have blandly hidden behind statements about this catastrophe being an...

Surrey Floods (3 Apr 1969)

Mr William Robson-Brown: I apologise, Mr. Speaker, for addressing the Minister by name. Now you do know, Mr. Speaker. Recently I have tabled a series of Questions and the Answers to them have produced some telling facts. Some of these facts are shocking to learn. For example, there was a promise that within three months there would be a full investigation into the cause of the floods and that full arrangements would...

Surrey Floods (3 Apr 1969)

Mr William Robson-Brown: My point was that at the meeting at Esher which the Parliamentary Secretary attended the spokesman for the Thames Conservancy gave the impression that he had a precept of only a certain sum. The spokesman did not tell us that he was spending only 55 per cent. of it. The people of Surrey want to know why he did not do the whole job.

Gentleman to provide time for a debate before the Easter Recess.

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (25 Jul 1966)

Mr William Robson-Brown: I am very glad to be following the hon. Gentleman the Member for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. John Hynd), because he has made some allegations about people in the steel industry which I now repudiate, personally and generally. It is usual in a debate of this nature to declare one's personal interest. I have lived with steel all my life and hope to continue doing so in a modest way over the...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (25 Jul 1966)

Mr William Robson-Brown: I am sorry. I remember that at the last election you did not need to do that. Thank you for pulling me up. Broadly, steel has kept pace with demand, even boom demand. That has been the analysis of the efficiency of the industry. In 1964 there was a tremendous, unprecedented demand for steel, particularly at home. The industry did what was right and proper and what was required of it: it...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (25 Jul 1966)

Mr William Robson-Brown: I am sorry, Mr. Speaker. One gets in the habit of addressing the hon. Member for Buckingham (Mr. Maxwell) direct, because he is up and down so much. In the last couple of years, there has been heavy dumping of pig iron, and it is continuing. We are meeting this kind of thing from all over the world. At this moment prices being quoted from South Africa are very competitive and very alarming.

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (25 Jul 1966)

Mr William Robson-Brown: The import duties imposed by the Government in the last few months have been one of the contributory factors for the higher prices of imported iron ore. Had you thought about that? These are—

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (25 Jul 1966)

Mr William Robson-Brown: If there are no more interruptions, I will not make any more mistakes. It has been said that exports, particularly of finished steel, have been extremely high. The figures speak for themselves as record figures. Let me take price as the next criticism. We denationalised steel. My right hon. friend the Member for Streatham (Mr. Sandys), who spoke about this matter from direct knowledge,...
