Mr Raphael Tuck: Mr. Raphael Tuck (Watford)rose—

Orders of the Day — Protection from Eviction Bill (18 Nov 1964)

Mr Raphael Tuck: In rising to make my maiden speech I should like to ask for the kind indulgence of the House and to pay tribute to my predecessor (Mr. FareyJones), who represented the constituency of Watford for the last nine years and who sat on the Government benches—I mean, the last Government. He was very well liked, I understand, in the House. He paid particular attention to, and took a great interest...

Orders of the Day — Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (21 Dec 1964)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Whatever extremists might say of the Bill one way or another, it remains the fact that murder, the killing of another person, is a ghastly crime. Whether it be done by an individual, or by the State, it is murder just the same. We have heard a lot about deterrence. I suggest that capital punishment is not a deterrent. The poisoner or the person who carefully plans his crime expects to get...

Orders of the Day — Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (21 Dec 1964)

Mr Raphael Tuck: The person who takes a firearm with him on the expedition does not use it in a fit of rage. He plans the expedition. He is one of the planners. I have divided them into two classes. He is one who takes a firearm with him for use if necessary, and he does not think that he will be caught. I was surprised to hear the right hon. and learned Member for Epsom (Sir P. Rawlinson) use the expression...

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I wish to make it quite clear that I am against retrospective legislation. It may be legally justified, but in my view it is morally unjustifiable. In this connection, I must with diffidence join issue with my hon. Friend the Member for Barons Court (Mr. Richard) and agree with the hon. and learned Member for Northwich (Sir J. Foster). The argument of my hon. Friend the Member for Barons...

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: The argument of my hon. Friend the Member for Barons Court appeared to be this. If we now pass this legislation, depriving the company of a right which the court said it had, we are saying, "If we had passed legislation in 1946, you would not have had this right. Therefore, we are putting you in the same position now as you would have been in if we had passed that legislation". That is all...

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: No, because the notice was not given when Davey Paxman brought its action. In this case the Government gave notice to the Burmah Oil Company that they would not pay but would pass retrospective legislation.

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: In this case notice was given before the House of Lords' hearing. I understand that it was in fact given before the action was started.

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: At any rate, notice was given, and there was no point in prosecuting the action up to the House of Lords, because the Burmah Oil Company knew very well that if it won it would not get its money. The case is on all fours with Davey Paxman v. The Postmaster-General. Notice was given to the population at large to this effect "Do not bring any action against the Post Office. An Act will be...

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Would my hon. Friend say that the Davey Paxman case was also a matter of threat and coercion when the notice was given that no further claims would be entertained because the total was £360 million?

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: They did. They passed an Act, the Wireless Telegraphy (Validation of Charges) Act. They gave notice that they were going to pass that Act so that people were not led into a false sense of security and the belief that they would get back the —150 which the Post Office then owed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firearms (4 Feb 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the increase in the possession and use of firearms, he will now introduce legislation to prohibit the ownership of any firearms, in the sense in which the word is popularly understood, to include shotguns and airguns, except by licence under stringent penalties.

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Civil Airlines (1 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: It falls to me, happily, to congratulate the hon. Member for North Angus and Mearns (Mr. Buchanan-Smith) on his maiden speech and to welcome him to this assembly as a fully-fledged Member. While he was making his speech I envied him considerably. It is not many weeks ago that I made my maiden speech, falteringly, hesitatingly and very nervously indeed. In fact, although the House must have...

Civil Estimates and Defence (Central) Estimate, 1965–66: Civil Airlines (1 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: No. I was asking the Government to underwrite the credit for an extra three years to enable the British Aircraft Corporation to be on the same bargaining power level as Boeing. If that happened, it is most probable that the sheikh would order the British aircraft instead of the American. This would be welcomed by the British Aircraft Cor-poration—the heads, the management and the trade...

Bill Presented: New Clause. — (Commencement.) (2 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: On a point of order. Has whether it is compensation or rehabilitation anything to do with the new Clause?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Aviation: Aircraft Exports (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: asked the Minister of Aviation what steps he is taking to assist the export sales of civil aircraft.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Aviation: Aircraft Exports (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: Do the Government propose to give continuing support?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: May I first express my entire agreement with my hon. Friend the Member for Wandsworth, Central (Dr. David Kerr) in his view that medical practitioners should be given an additional appellation when speaking and being referred to in Parliament. He referred to them as honourable and qualified Members. May I suggest that such a Member should be referred to as an honourable and Hippocratic...

Orders of the Day — Mental Health Service (19 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: I should like to call the attention of my right hon. Friend the Minister to a hospital which my wife and I visited a short while ago, and that is Leavesden Hospital, which is near my constituency of Watford. In that hospital for mentally subnormal people there are about 2,300 patients, of both sexes and of all ages. There is a large waiting list of almost 300 but there is little hope that any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Private Detectives (25 Mar 1965)

Mr Raphael Tuck: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the number of alleged private detective agencies set up in recent months by undesirable persons, he will introduce legislation providing for registraton and strict control of private detectives.
