Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Bill. (Allocation of Time) (14 Nov 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: The normal procedure would be that when the Government moved to bring the Bill to a Committee of the whole House, at the same time they moved the appointment of a Business Committee, which would get over the time difficulty. It is important that we should try to get the timetable procedure right, because it was the understanding of the Select Committee on Procedure when we considered the...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (7 Nov 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the announcement about the repayment of tax on stocks held that have borne purchase tax. During the debates on the Finance Bill, many of my hon. Friends and I pressed him to relieve that burden because it was thought to be an obstacle to trade through the danger of double taxation. My right hon. Friend is to be...

Schedule 14: Amendment and Modification of Public Health Acts, etc. (25 Oct 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: My hon. Friend the Member for Folke-stone and Hythe (Mr. Costain) has convincingly explained his conversion on the road from the dustbin. However, I am still worried about the Government's decision. I believe that collection and disposal should be in the same hands. As my hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe explained, collection must be a district matter so that the district can...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Money Supply (24 Oct 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Is not my hon Friend also concerned with the figures for the increase in personal liquidity, now standing at more than £33,000 million, more than the national income and in effect having the inflationary tendency to raise prices, particularly of land?

Business of the House (19 Oct 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: As the programme which my right hon. Friend has announced does not provide any opportunity for discussing the changes in procedure recommended by the Select Committee on Procedure and Joint Select Committee on Delegated Legislation nor, indeed, the even more urgent matter of the parliamentary consequences of entry into the European Communities, will my right hon. Friend give an undertaking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: European Economic Community (17 Oct 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is aware of the concern of pig producers that in the transitional period their sales will be adversely affected by the system of compensatory payments that are to be enjoyed by pig producers in the Six; and if he will make a statement on the result of his recent negotiations with the Six.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: European Economic Community (17 Oct 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Is my hon. Friend aware that there is grave concern that the Community is trying to base compensation payments on unrealistic conversion factors? In addition there is a danger that within their scope will be included pigmeat not produced in the European Community but imported from Eastern Europe?

Business of the House (27 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Will my right hon. Friend correct a previous reply in which he suggested that the Select Committee on Procedure was looking into the question of Opposed Private Business, which would be outside the Committee's remit? The Committee is receiving a memorandum on the different times at which Private Business is taken, which is another matter.

European Communities — Efta Countries (Agreements) (26 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: While congratulating my right hon. and learned Friend on his success in the enlargement of free trade in Europe, may I ask him to reconsider his decision merely to place a copy of this agreement in the Library of the House? Surely it is important that every Member should have this document as either a Command Paper or a White Paper so that it may be properly examined by hon. Members.

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I want to intervene only briefly to mention what I call the rather reactionary outlook of some of those who support the Amendments. I am sure that Derby is a wonderful library authority. But when Derby is joined to Derbyshire I cannot see why it cannot create an even better library authority. One argument that has been made is very difficult to counteract, and that is the argument of my hon....

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: That is just what I am saying. It is like a bachelor before marriage saying, "I am wonderful and I do not want to give up this state. I am being forced into a marriage by my parents, but I must keep my library service as a bachelor." That seems to be looking at the matter from the wrong aspect. I want to make two other observations. In 1957 there were about 484 library authorities in...

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I read out the reports which recommended that the library service should be provided by county councils.

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: There is a difference in marriage depending on whom one marries. I should have thought that Derby would find Derbyshire an attractive partner. That is rather different from the argument about the Six.

Orders of the Day — Schedule 16 (19 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I should like to say how pleased I am that my right hon. Friend has put in paragraph 8E, bringing in the parishes. At the same time I am a little disappointed that he has made it an opting-in provision. I understood that the arrangements were to be for opting out. We must accept this position, that they have to opt in, but I ask my right hon. Friend what notification he intends to give to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cereal Prices (18 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Surely my right hon. Friend the Minister can say if he intends to table a Motion under the affirmative Resolution procedure so that we can have a proper debate on the regulations? Has he laid down any minimum quantities of de-natured wheat that can be sold by any one farmer?

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (13 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I cannot agree with everything that my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Norman Lamont) said about parliamentary sovereignty, but he made one of the most brilliant and wittiest maiden speeches that I have heard for a long time, and I am sure that he will make many other contributions with which we shall be in complete agreement. I liked my hon. Friend's comment about...

Clause 14: Relief on Supply of Certain Second-Hand Goods (12 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I very much agree with what the hon. Member for York (Mr. Alexander W. Lyon) said about Easter eggs, and commend his suggestion that where the difficulty can be overcome by dated invoices, as with Easter eggs, this should be done. But the problem is much wider. I am particularly concerned with the clothing trade. In my constituency I have the offices of one of the largest manufacturers of...

New Clause: Selection of Delegates to the European Assembly and Members of Parliamentary Scrutiny Committee (5 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Can my hon. and learned Friend explain why every Select Committee of this House is subject to the approval of the House by Resolution of the House? He must try to get some knowledge of parliamentary procedure.

New Clause: Selection of Delegates to the European Assembly and Members of Parliamentary Scrutiny Committee (5 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I wish to be brief, although I have to cover a fair amount of ground because of the history of this and my peculiar position as Chairman of the Select Committee on Procedure. To take first the question of the delegation to the European Assembly, there has always been a good deal of dissatisfaction in the House of Commons over the system of selection of members to the Council of Europe and...

New Clause: Selection of Delegates to the European Assembly and Members of Parliamentary Scrutiny Committee (5 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I beg my right hon. and learned Friend's pardon. It was a letter which passed between the two Chief Whips. We heard it read by the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale a little earlier. I must emphasise that it is important that this matter should be looked at urgently. The subject was mentioned as long ago as last November by the then Leader of the House, my right hon. Friend the Member for Penrith...
