Clause 2: General Implementation of Treaties (26 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I accept at once that what my right hon. and learned Friend has read deals with what we were discussing yesterday. We are now dealing with what will happen in the future. In my view, my right hon. and learned Friend's quotation from paragraph 23 of the White Paper makes it clear that the preceding Government thought that future regulations would be dealt with by enactment, by the ordinary...

Clause 2: General implementation of Treaties (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: May I raise with you, Sir Robert, a point of order regarding the previous selection of Amendments? Amendments Nos. 80 and 54, which relate to the Schedule, were in the first grouping. I notice that they have disappeared. Clearly, they were not really connected with the first group. May I have an assurance that their disappearance does not mean that they have lost your selection but that they...

Clause 2: General implementation of Treaties (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I have great sympathy with the intervention by the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Dell). For once, I rather disagree with my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Hertfordshire, East (Sir D. Walker-Smith) who talked about Amendment No. 79 as being emasculating. I regard it as a form of vasectomy. The difference is that one can still be potent after vasectomy by having another...

Clause 2: General implementation of Treaties (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: That is what I was saying, that I did not understand that the ad hoc committee was to deal with the amendment of Standing Orders; I thought its purpose was to advise my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister exactly what form of parliamentary scrutiny we required and what must be enacted by legislation and not left to Standing Orders, because if the ad hoc committee said that certain matters...

Clause 2: General implementation of Treaties (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: My right hon. and learned Friend has described Amendment No. 78 as being inconsistent with the treaty. This is the one where regulations are made by the Commission. Surely that is exactly what the Bundestag has. In Article 2 of German law the Bundestag examines proposals in draft. Presumably if there were an adverse decision, the regulation would have to be made by the Council of Ministers...

Clause 2: General implementation of Treaties (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I made an appeal to my right hon. and learned Friend to consider whether we should not deal with the changes by the consolidation Bill procedure under Standing Order 87A, which would require some form of Amendment rather on the lines of Amendment No. 7, which we are discussing. What view does my right hon. and learned Friend take about how any consolidated law would be put to the House?

Clause 2: European Communities Bill (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: On a point of order. Are you aware, Sir Alfred, that earlier the Chair said that it would be convenient for Amendment No. 7 to be considered with the other Amendments that we are discussing?

Clause 2: European Communities Bill (25 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: We are considering also on Amendment Nos. 56 and 314 the phrase "and similar expressions", which so far my hon. and learned Friend has not touched on.

British Railways (Dispute) (20 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Further to that point of order., Mr. Speaker. The right hon. Member for Cardiff, South-East (Mr. Callaghan) suggested that the matter should be referred to the Select Commit tee on Procedure. I am Chairman of the Committee and I would point out that there is no need for such a reference, since our terms of reference are sufficiently wide to review the ruling of our predecessors in 1962–63....

Clause 1: Short Title and Interpretation (19 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Yesterday we talked about this Amendment and called it the EFTA Amendment. I notice that right hon. and hon. Gentlemen who have talked about the Amendment have all talked about EFTA and nothing else. I tabled Amendments which, unfortunately, the Chair was not able to accept. They questioned the rightness of putting Ireland and the EFTA countries in together, because their positions are...

Clause 1: Short Title and Interpretation (19 Apr 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I have the quotation here. It was announced in the last week of April, 1967, and the right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. Harold Wilson) made the announcement on 2nd May, 1967. He announced it when he was examined by the present Prime Minister. He said that they had changed the pledge about EFTA. If one of the referenda were to go wrong, that would place in jeopardy the whole of that policy on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: European Economic Community (21 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to prevent imports of pigs and of pigmeat entering the United Kingdom from countries of the European Economic Community which exercise no control of swine fever on their farms.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: European Economic Community (21 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Is my hon. Friend aware that there is general concern that Article 104 of the Treaty of Accession is inadequate protection for the pig industry and that, after 1977, no protection is afforded against animals infected with swine fever being imported into this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Thirsk (14 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Is my right hon. Friend aware that this projected by-election is being frustrated by the refusal of the constituency Labour Party to put country before party by allowing a by-election to take place on the single issue of the Common Market? Is he also aware that, apart from these little local difficulties, he will always be welcome in the Thirsk and Malton division, particularly since some of...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (14 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: The remark by my hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General was made in answer to an intervention by me. I had drawn attention to the possibility of a Caribbean Sugar Agreement and asked whether Parliament would have any opportunity of passing judgment on such a new agreement after 1974. My hon. and learned Friend said: I have made it plain that under Article 238 there would be the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (14 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Surely the hon. Gentleman is referring not to the ad hoc committee, but to the Select Committee. The ad hoc committee will have to decide whether there should be a Select Committee like this or what the procedure would be.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Short Title and Interpretation (8 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: We are clearly dealing with an important part of the Bill. My right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster admitted late last night that the parliamentary relationship to treaty-making was not satisfactory as the Bill was drafted. I shall come later to his suggestion as to how it should be dealt with. It is a good thing to remind the Committee of the present...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Short Title and Interpretation (8 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: It may be only nuts and bolts. I do not want to keep the House very long, but I want to try, if I can, to put this position as I see it and ask my right hon. and learned Friend if I am right in my construction. Let me consider the position of sugar, which concerns a great many of us. As I see it, in the treaties we have got it is quite clear what is the position regarding sugar during the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Short Title and Interpretation (8 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: When my right hon. and learned Friend mentioned this matter in the Second Reading debate he made no suggestion that the ad hoc committee, which was to be a device of procedure, would be a channel by which draft treaties could be examined, which implied a replacement of the Ponsonby Rule. The Ponsonby Rule was under debate in the House long after Ponsonby. I remember its being debated for one...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Short Title and Interpretation (8 Mar 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: The Solicitor-General has not quite answered my point. I suggested that this would come under Article 113 and could be made by qualified majority. We might well be in the majority and yet, unless Amendment No. 81 were passed, we would be denied the opportunity of raising that treaty in the House of Commons. I may be wrong, but I do not think the Solicitor-General has answered my point.
