Orders of the Day — Caravan Site, Ingleby Arncliffe (5 May 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: Before I come to some of the points of substance mentioned by the hon. Member for Richmond, Yorks (Mr. Kitson) I want to make a brief reference to two quasilegal points, because I think it right that these should be put on the record as soon as possible. First, as I think the hon. Gentleman knows, I gather that Mrs. Berry is considering a further application for permission. I therefore want...

Orders of the Day — Caravan Site, Ingleby Arncliffe (5 May 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: I accept that what the hon. Gentleman says as to the facts. But the point is that in 1955 permission was refused at the direction of the Ministry of Transport for a caravan site at the south end of the field because it was felt that, at this point, access even then would not be in the interest of safety and convenience and the divisional engineer's evidence is that the importance of the road...

Orders of the Day — Caravan Site, Ingleby Arncliffe (5 May 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: So far as my programme allows, I shall be delighted. I do go to see sites from time to time. When I started doing so, some eyebrows were raised, but I do not think that I recommend my right hon. Friend to make a worse decision because I have seen for myself. This point was taken up the other day in regard to a High Court judge who visited the scene of an accident. One of the points on...

Orders of the Day — Housing Development Plan, High Spen (28 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: I begin by paying tribute to the single-minded tenacity with which my hon. Friend the Member for Blaydon (Mr. Woof) has pursued this matter on behalf of his constituents. We have had considerable correspondence on the matter, he has asked Questions about it in the House, and I know that for a long time he has been trying to secure the opportunity to raise these very important issues on the...

Orders of the Day — WALSALL CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (23 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: I was saying, "As soon as possible."

Orders of the Day — WALSALL CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (23 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: Perhaps it is convenient for me to intervene briefly now with such advice as I can tender the House because I want to allow adequate time for my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Walsall, North (Mr. William Wells) to reply to the points made in the debate. I think that is the fair course. I sympathise with some of the points made by the hon. Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page). I agree...

Orders of the Day — WALSALL CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (23 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: —or, if the Committee decides to the contrary, that the provision should be limited by the requirement that the provisions should be allowed in the Bill only on the understanding that sites are first prepared and that the provisions would lapse when Part II of the Caravan Sites Act comes into operation. Hon. Members will appreciate that it is difficult for me to tell the House what will be...

Orders of the Day — WEST BROMWICH CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (23 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: In response to the hon. Gentleman's invitation, I give the same assurances on the caravan Clauses of this Bill as I did on the last. We recommend that the Bill should be given a Second Reading, but my right hon. Friend will look very carefully at these provisions. So long as they do not breach the kind of conditions I stated before. I think that he would make a report in the same way. We do...

Orders of the Day — Housing, Hamsterley Colliery (2 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: By the letters which he has written to the Department and by the questions which he has put to us and certainly by his speech tonight, my hon. Friend the Member for Consett (Mr. David Watkins) has become known as one deeply and personally involved in the future of this village. The House will share my view that his personal identification with the problem of the future potential of the...

Orders of the Day — Housing, Hamsterley Colliery (2 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: Those are factors which I would not want to ignore. This is a matter of finally making up one's mind, in the light of the facts, whether or not the original concept of the county should be supported. I agree that there are these features to which my hon. Friend has drawn attention. Turning to the history of the case and why the Minister took the decision that he did, I come to August, 1967,...

Orders of the Day — Housing, Hamsterley Colliery (2 Apr 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: The hon. Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page) knows that one result of this categorisation will be that many of these——

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: To try to get the matter cleared up, am I right in thinking that this is not a case that the hon. Gentleman has notified to my office?

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: The hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West (Mr. Hawkins) has raised several interesting cases, and I should like to make comments upon two of them. I have not been given notice of the others. I do not complain of that, because some may have come in late, and perhaps the hon. Gentleman has already been in touch with the regional offices. These cases, although apparently simple, can often be...

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: The hon. and gallant Gentleman could not have been listening to me. I said that it was the duty of the hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West to do that. I also said that I was sorry that there had been exclusive concentration on hardship because the whole purpose of what I regard as an essential reform in dealing with land has tended to be obscured and the Commission and those who serve it with...

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: This is an argument to which I have not yet addressed myself. I am prepared to do so if the hon. Gentleman thinks it will be helpful to the House. Evidence from all parts of the country gives considerable support to the view that the operations of the Land Commission have not added to the price of land because of the law of diminishing returns. People buy land for speculative building—or...

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: Provided that the conditions are satisfied, it would turn on whether the transaction was notifiable to the Inland Revenue. Once we get into the realm of a notifiable transaction, it might be affected. I should have to know all the circumstances —

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: This was the first concession, and I think it was an important one. In view of the other cases which have been put forward, it is right to draw attention to another concession of considerable importance. That is what I might call, for want of a better term. the 10 per cent. tolerance in relation to dwelling houses. In these cases, if there is either rebuilding or expansion of an existing...

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: I think that the hon. Gentleman ought to look at Section 45(2) to see where this concession applies and how it operates. I am not trying to be evasive, but this is rather complex. We must consider that categories of cases are set out here and in the appropriate regulations which have to be read in conjunction with the various cases, A, B, C, D, E and F. The hon. Gentleman will realise that...

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: I hope that the hon. Gentleman will be a little cautious about this. A number of cases which have come to us have not been cases in which there has been hardship of the kind that he has alleged, but cases of people who have not wanted to pay the levy, and I understand that. Nobody wants to pay any kind of tax. Nobody wants to pay rates. Not all of the instances that come to our notice have an...

Land Commission (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: I mentioned it because it was one of those which I understood the hon. Gentleman wished me to deal with.
