Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Unemployed Persons (22 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the number of unemployed and the percentage rate in the West Midlands and in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively, at the latest available date; and how he expects the situation to develop in each of these areas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Unemployed Persons (22 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Are not these the worst figures since before the war? For all their talk, the Government have failed. To what extent has the protection of jobs in Wales and Scotland worsened the employment position in England?

Iceland (Fisheries Dispute) (7 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Will the right hon. Gentleman—[Interruption.] I apologise that I was somewhat delayed on my way to the House, thereby missing the statement of the Foreign Secretary, but I have read the agreement. Bearing in mind that the agreement is only for six months, will the right hon. Gentleman undertake to commence discussions with the Icelandic authorities well before the expiration of this...

Clause 2: Reference to Board of Complaint Reports (7 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: The Home Secretary is going to Europe —to Brussels.

Clause 2: Reference to Board of Complaint Reports (7 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: I intervene briefly to support some of the observations about the need to speed up the procedures for dealing with complaints against the police. I was very impressed by what the hon. Member for Essex, South-East (Sir B. Braine) said about the Bedfordshire case. Although I accept that it is for the Home Secretary to make a final decision after an appeal has been made, I do not think that the...

Clause 2: Reference to Board of Complaint Reports (7 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: The hon. Member has made an unfair suggestion. Most hon. Members study any complaint made to them to see whether they are passing a justifiable complaint to the Ministry concerned. I do not think that we automatically pass on everything that is put to us.

Clause 2: Reference to Board of Complaint Reports (7 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Before the Minister sits down—

Clause 2: Reference to Board of Complaint Reports (7 Jun 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Before the Minister sits down, may I ask—

BAIL BILL [Lords] (26 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: I am glad to follow the speech of the hon. and learned Member for Hackney, North and Stoke Newington (Mr. Weitzman), who speaks with much experience on this subject. I am also glad to be able to agree with his first point about this Bill being foisted on the House for Second Reading. It is quite unsatisfactory that such an important Bill should be brought up suddenly because other business...

BAIL BILL [Lords] (26 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: That was a facile interjection. First, I did not say it was the duty of the police to get a conviction. I said that, unfortunately, the police often regard it as their duty to get a conviction, which is another position altogether. The police, unfortunately, have an attitude that it is their responsibility to win the game at the end of the day. This is an unfortunate aspect of the way in...

BAIL BILL [Lords] (26 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: I am following with fascination what the hon. and learned Gentleman is saying, but surely the point is that the person concerned is presumed innocent. In using the word "offences", the hon. and learned Gentleman is presuming some guilt. Should he not put the word alleged "before "offences"? Will the hon. and learned Gentleman deal with a matter that so often arises in criminal cases, when...

BAIL BILL [Lords] (26 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Or a suicide?

Adjournment (Spring) (25 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: It will be within your recollection, Mr. Speaker, that on 13th April I spoke in the debate on the Easter Adjournment about a number of subjects. It will be a relief to you and no doubt to the House that I do not intend to refer to any of them again. I simply hope that the House will take them as read. They are still subjects about which I feel deeply concerned and about which I think the...

Adjournment (Spring) (25 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: I hope that we shall have a statement about the matter from responsible Ministers before we rise for the recess, because the practice is causing much anguish. The delay, if we have to wait until we return, will cause even more anguish to my constituent and all the others affected. There has been a suggestion, which Ministers should take seriously, that a fund should be established, perhaps...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: British Leyland (17 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will make a statement with regard to the level and frequency of further Government grants and other subventions to British Leyland, in the light of the recent strikes and restrictive practices in the industry which, according to the chairman, undermine its prospects of achieving viability.

Orders of the Day — The Army (6 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: What steps have been made so far to secure the release and return of these men.

Orders of the Day — The Army (6 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Will the hon. Member direct his mind more objectively and constructively than he has at present to the way in which the problems, which he has dealt with so well, are resolved in a small country like Denmark, for example? Does he not support the concept of European co-operation in defence as well?

Orders of the Day — The Army (6 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: The hon. Member for Weston-super-Mare (Mr. Wiggin) drew attention in his speech to the absence of Ministers from the debate. I am glad that as a result of that more Ministers came in, including the hon. Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Wellbeloved), whom I am pleased to see on the Government Front Bench and whom I congratulate on his appointment as Under-Secretary. He is a man of...

Orders of the Day — The Army (6 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Will the Minister explain what the men are being charged with?

Orders of the Day — The Army (6 May 1976)

Mr John Stonehouse: Will the hon. Gentleman give an undertaking that he will make a statement tomorrow about the most serious incident involving eight members of the SAS being arrested by the Irish Garda, and give the House more information than he is able to provide tonight?
