Orders of the Day — Regional Planning (9 Jul 1970)

Mr Peter Trew: Mr. Deputy Speaker, I thank you for this opportunity to make my maiden speech. My predecessor here was Sydney Irving, who represented Dartford for 15 years. He was highly regarded by all sections of the community in Dartford as an assiduous and dedicated constituency Member, and during the five years that I nursed that seat as prospective candidate, although we were political opponents, has...

South Africa (Sale of Arms) (22 Jul 1970)

Mr Peter Trew: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, in the Second World War, when we had this global confrontation that he is envisaging, of 5,150 Allied merchant ships sunk, 559 were sunk in the South Atlantic or the Indian Ocean—one ship in nine—and that if such a threat arose again, it would be vital to deploy naval forces in the South Atlantic?

Thames Flood Barrier (9 Nov 1970)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful for this unexpected opportunity to speak on this subject and I commend the initiative of the hon. Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Wellbeloved) for having raised the matter. Both as a civil engineer and as a member for a Thamesside constituency, the question of a Thames barrier is of great interest to me, and I welcome in principle the decision to go ahead with the...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (Dissolution) Bill (16 Dec 1970)

Mr Peter Trew: I shall follow the hon. Member for Bristol, South (Mr. Michael Cocks) on the question of house prices. Before doing so, I must declare an interest. For the past 13 years I have worked in the construction industry, in which I still hold directorships, and for the past six years I have been concerned with housing development. The speech of the hon. Member for Bristol, South, and, indeed, the...

Orders of the Day — European Economic Community (21 Jan 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. Would he not agree that the break-up of the Central African Federation illustrated that political union is not irrevocable and indissoluble if the strains within it become intolerable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Thames Barrage (9 Feb 1971)

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Thames Barrage (9 Feb 1971)

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (1 Apr 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that many capital investment projects take a long time to get off the ground, and that the real benefit will come in two to three years' time?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (1 Apr 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: I hope that the hon. Member for Edinburgh, East (Mr. Strang) will forgive me if I do not comment on his remarks. I believe that this Budget will restore confidence and that the chief beneficiary of that restoration of confidence will be the level of industrial investment. Hon. Members opposite have made much of the fact that the increase in private fixed investment in the next year will be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Second Dartford Tunnel (28 Apr 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful for my hon. Friend's announcement, which will be warmly welcomed. In view of the speed with which traffic is building up in the existing tunnel, will my hon. Friend say what can be done to shorten the estimated construction period? Second, will he encourage the tunnel committee to raise the finance for this project on the open market?

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Minerals) (4 May 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: The hon. Member for Swansea, West (Mr. Alan Williams) described with great lucidity the praiseworthy objectives of these Regulations—the desire to shake out redundant planning permissions, to take note of the special problems of mineral operators and to safeguard the environment. The 10-year period fails signally to achieve the first two of these objectives. It prolongs unnecessarily the...

Orders of the Day — Rents and Rates (6 May 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: It is a great pleasure to be called immediately after the hon. Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Mrs. Doris Fisher), who spoke with great feeling about the problems of council tenants. I do not accept what she says about the attitude of the Conservative Party to council tenants, however. Certainly we do not regard them as second class citizens. From a practical point of view, a large number of...

Orders of the Day — Rents and Rates (6 May 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: My right hon. Friend this afternoon pinpointed the fact that whereas in 1964 the average industrial wage could service a mortgage on the average new house, today it needs a weekly wage of about £33 to get a mortgage on the average-priced house. The ability of purchasers to borrow is critical to our future housing programme, particularly when we consider that we are hoping to expand the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Thames Flood Barrier (11 May 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: In view of the complexity and extent of these works, is my hon. Friend satisfied that they can be completed at the same time as the barrier? Will he assure the House, first of all, that there is no question of the barrier being put into operation before the downstream flood defences are completed? Secondly, since some of the river frontages are privately owned and outside the jurisdiction of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Thames Barrier (9 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: Would not my hon. Friend agree that the main requirement of the Thames flood barrier is now to get it built together with the associated downstream flood defences? Would he consider appointing one man with overall executive responsibility for the entire project? At present there is uncertainty in the public mind as to who is responsible.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Twilight Areas (9 Jun 1971)

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Twilight Areas (9 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that reply. Has he made a study of the American techniques for urban renewal, and has he come to a conclusion on their suitability for use in this country?
