Orders of the Day — Housing (White Paper) (19 Jul 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: The hon. Member for Salford, East (Mr. Frank Allaun) expressed fears about how the new rent system may work out in practice. So did his right hon. Friend the Member for Grimsby (Mr. Crosland). Though it is quite right that they should express their fears, and though I know that the hon. Member has thought very deeply about these problems, I do not believe that either he or his right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Economic Community (21 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will ensure that the White Paper on the terms for entry into the European Economic Community refers specifically to the degree of Great Britain's commitment to initiatives for closer co-operation which go beyond the scope of the Treaty of Rome.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Economic Community (21 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that there are initiatives under way in Europe in respect of economic, monetary and political union which could have no less profound an effect on the future of this country than the Treaty of Rome itself? Will he ensure that these matters, particularly the question of our commitments to them, are dealt with as clearly and as specifically as possible in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Voluntary Housing Movement (16 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: Would my right hon. Friend agree that if housing associations are to make a substantial contribution to relieving homelessness in great conurbations, there may be a case for local authorities making land available to them at something below the cost of acquisition and demolition? Has my right hon. Friend made a study of how that might be done, and, if so, has he come to any conclusions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Dartford Diversion (Traffic Noise) (16 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what reports he has had of nuisance from traffic noise on the newly-opened Dartford diversion; and what action he proposes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Dartford Diversion (Traffic Noise) (16 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: While the new road is generally welcomed for the contribution that it will make to reducing accidents and road congestion, it is causing disturbance and distress to residents of Wilmington along a comparatively short stretch. As the wholly exceptional traffic noise is said to be due largely to the nature of the concrete surface, will the Minister give directions for the length to be...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Hydrocarbon Oils (15 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what estimate he has made of the amount of the excise duty on hydrocarbon oils which is borne ultimately by the paper and board industry;

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Hydrocarbon Oils (15 Jun 1971)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful for that information. While I appreciate that both these industries enjoy the benefit of a generous rebate on heavy oils, will my hon. Friend have regard to their plight and the fact that their foreign competitors enjoy the benefit of lower fuel costs, and consider rebating in full the duty on these oils?

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)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what advice he has given to local authorities on collaboration with private enterprise and the voluntary housing movement in the redevelopment of twilight areas.

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?

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

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what further progress has been reported to him by the Essex and Kent River Authorities in their investigations into the downstream flood defences associated with or arising from the Thames Floor Barrier; and whether he is now in a position to give an estimate of the cost of these works in Essex and in Kent, respectively.

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...

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...

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...

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he will authorise the start of construction of the second Dartford Tunnel.

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?

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...
