Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Road Programme (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: Is the Secretary of State aware that the cutting down of the road programme in Wales is regarded very seriously by those who have the interests of the Principality at heart? We have noticed the predisposition of the Minister of Transport for the United Kingdom to make increases in the road programmes where by-elections are going on. Is it necessary to have by-elections in Wales in order to...

Business of the House (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the grave discourtesy with which he and his right hon. Friend the Home Secretary have treated the House with regard to Thursday's business? He has given two assurances that we can debate the White Paper on the Parliamentary Commissioner before we have the Bill. Despite those assurances, and no doubt knowing that we could preclude such a debate, the Home...

Business of the House (17 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: Does the right hon. Gentleman recall that on 7th December last he gave an undertaking to give further consideration to a debate on the White Paper on the Parliamentary Commissioner, in advance of legislation being framed?

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (10 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: It is a privilege in such a debate to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page), whose activities in recent years have done something to form public opinion in favour of a Bill of this character. These are important matters which we discuss, because they relate to the toll of road casualties, which is the concern of both sides. May I say to the right hon. Lady the...

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (10 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: I do not think that the right hon. Lady understands the Bill. In introducing it the Government are introducing a really fundamental change in the law of Britain. We are to ensure that in future, whereas in the past numbers of people were acquitted by juries, people will be convicted. That is absolutely certain as we now consider the Bill. I ask the right hon. Lady to take credit for what she...

Home Defence ( 2 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that local authorities and civil defence officers will welcome this statement so far as it goes, for they have been clamouring for information, and indeed my hon. Friend the Member for Sutton and Cheam (Mr. Sharples) has been pressing for it since July? Secondly, would he join me in paying a tribute to the stalwarts of civil defence who have carried on the...

Orders of the Day — Crime ( 2 Feb 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: I beg to move, That this House notes with grave concern the mounting wave of crime together with the falling detection rate; regrets that the Government's actions and proposals in this sphere, particularly with regard to the police, appear inadequate to deal with this deteriorating situation, and rejects the Government's proposal to abolish juvenile courts and to give power to the executive...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigrants (Dependants) (27 Jan 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: May I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on his appointment to his high office, and, so far as it is appropriate for a Member of the Opposition, wish him well? Does he recognise that there is considerable anxiety in the country, not simply about the numbers who are coming in but about the possibilities of evasion? If he is relying on paragraph 19, could he give some indication as to how...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police (Numbers and Recruitment) (27 Jan 1966)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: Are we to understand from the Home Secretary's Answer—I hope I have got it right—that he is considering eventually a rather more forthcoming method of police pay? If he does, as many of us hope he will be able to, will he angle his offer, award or however he looks at it, to reward for efficiency and give increased pay where police are most needed?

Business of the House ( 9 Dec 1965)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: Could I ask the Leader of the House if he could contrive to find an opportunity for the debate on the Government's White Paper on the Parliamentary Commissioner in advance of legislation being framed on this important subject?
