Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Acts Continued.) (17 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I rise with trepidation to make my first speech in the House of Commons, but I am fortified by the knowledge of the kindness with which it is customary for hon. Members to hear the first speech of a new Member. In the last Parliament, I sat in this Chamber in what was literally, but in no other sense, a higher place, but where to give tongue would have been to court instant expulsion. That...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: St. John's Hospital, Chelmsford (8 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that a few days ago a senior surgeon at the hospital stated that unless something was done at once to improve conditions in the operating theatre there would be imminent danger, because of the charge of static electricity there, of an explosion in the operating theatre? In view of the danger to the lives of patients, doctors and nurses, will the Minister take...

Business of the House (11 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: In view of the grave discourtesy to a distinguished group of Essex Members, headed by my hon. Friend the Member for Essex, South-East (Mr. Braine), will the right hon. Gentleman make the strongest representations to the Minister of Transport? Will he also reconsider the question of a debate in view of the grave dissatisfaction that exists throughout Essex on the question of fares,...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 1. — (the Law Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: While I am very appreciative of the sentiments of my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Sir J. Hobson), I must confess that I have some doubt whether the Clause is strictly necessary. It is clear that the Lord Chancellor wants the Commissions to work, and if they are to be effective they must include practising lawyers. The present occupant of the Woolsack is...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 1. — (the Law Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I support the very important constitutional argument put forward by my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Sir J. Hobson). It is highly undesirable for this blurring of the distinction between the judiciary and the Executive to be imported into our Constitution. The line is blurred, it is true, at other places, blurred in particular on the Woolsack, I suppose,...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 3. — (Functions of the Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: Does my hon. Friend find that his own functions as a Member of Parliament are impeded by this correspondence?

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: On a point of order, do I have the right to speak, Mr. Deputy-Speaker?

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 3. — (Functions of the Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I do not wish to prolong the discussion or oppose in any way my right hon. and learned Friend's Amendment. I suggest some guidance could be obtained on the topic from the experience of the Law Revision Commission of New York, of which a valuable account is given in the January edition of the Modern Law Review. This precise problem has arisen in the work of that Commission. The Commission is...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 3. — (Functions of the Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I do not want to delay the House beyond anything but the minimum period, but I should like to associate myself, formally, with this Amendment and to say that I agree with my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Huntingdonshire (Sir D. Renton). This raises a point of major constitutional importance, and it would be useless for me to attempt to improve upon the argument which he has...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 3. — (Functions of the Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I consider these Amendments, either of them or both, extremely important and relevant. I speak as a staunch supporter of the Bill as such. I welcome it as the only worthwhile piece of legislation we have yet had from the Government and perhaps are likely to have. This is a serious Amendment. It is not a wrecking Amendment in any way. The Commission, I hope, will do most important work, and I...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Clause 3. — (Functions of the Commission.) (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: Would they be entitled to put into the report proposals in full which had not been accepted by the Minister?

Orders of the Day — Immigration (23 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: In common with so many other hon. and right hon. Members who have spoken, I welcome the broad area of agreement on this question which has emerged over the last few weeks, an area of agreement which is found within my party, and which has spread across the Chamber. I think that we are all agreed on the framework of principle within which the immigration problem must be solved. There will be...

Orders of the Day — Immigration (23 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: Just a minute; I can make my own speech. I am grateful for my hon. Friend"s offer, but I am in no need of his help. During the course of that campaign Members with impeccable records of social service, such as my right hon. Friend the Member for Sutton Coldfield (Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd), were ludicrously accused of being racialists—and there has just been a reference—on my left—to the...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill (3 May 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: In view of the widespread religious and ethnic prejudice in Northern Ireland, both from Catholics against Protestants and from Protestants against Catholics, would this not be a case for breaching the conventional usage? Surely the right hon. and learned Gentleman will agree that in the present situation in Northern Ireland he is extremely unlikely to be asked to legislate on the subject of...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill (3 May 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: Everyone in the House must have the greatest sympathy with what the hon. Member has said, but does he think that the Bill will protect, in practice, the Jewish community from the sort of outrage to which he is referring? Is there not a danger that, by leaving out any reference to religion, the Bill labels the Jewish community as a racial and ethnic minority? Surely this would be most...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill (3 May 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I am interested in the suggestion, but does the hon. Lady envisage ultimately a civil sanction or ultimately a criminal sanction behind the conciliation commission? Or does she envisage both?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16 — (Amendments of Case Vii of Schedule D.) (24 May 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: I support the Amendment. I agree with the hon. Member for Manchester, Cheetham (Mr. Harold Lever) that it would be much preferable to have no kind of short-term gains tax at all, but, since we are evidently to have it foisted upon us by the Government, the term should be made as short as is reasonably possible. We are entitled to criticise this period sharply despite the animadversions made...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16 — (Amendments of Case Vii of Schedule D.) (24 May 1965)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: The point I am making is that the hon. Member made great play of the fact that it was a Conservative Government which introduced a Capital Gains Tax in the first place, but the conditions prevailing then were so different that this sort of argument is quite irrelevant. This short-term Capital Gains Tax is being brought in in the context of the existence, or proposed existence, of a...
