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

Mr Robin Turton: The hon. Member for Nottingham, West has misunderstood the position. This is not a matter between those who are pro-Market and those who are anti-Market. It is a House of Commons matter. I have been very fortunate in the membership of my Committee. We have considered every problem that has been put to us, and, curiously enough, in our dozen or so reports we have reached unanimous...

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

Mr Robin Turton: That may be so. However, seven years ago the Select Committee on Procedure looked at the possibility. We were given expert advice from the Treasury that if we moved the close of our financial year from the present date to the end of the year it would make life impossible in the Civil Service. It would mean changing the whole parliamentary system. The Committee was told that it was quite...

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

Mr Robin Turton: How could the House approve or disapprove the selection of Members for the European Assembly without having either a statutory power or a substantive Motion?

New Clause: Procedure in Orders in Council and Statutory Instruments (5 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Surely the right hon. Gentleman must also mention that there is already a large phalanx of directives, going back to 1962, lying there waiting to be brought up to this House after our entry.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Restrictive Trade Practices (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I beg to move Amendment No. 367, in page 16, line 39, leave out subsection (1).

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Restrictive Trade Practices (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Clause 10(1) is a glaring example of legislation by reference. It is so drafted that, should it be enacted unamended, those affected by its provisions would be quite unable to fathom which of their arrangements would be declared contrary to the public interest. I have no doubt that it will be argued that this is the inescapable result of our joining the European Community. Should the 34 per...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Restrictive Trade Practices (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: As I understand it, as we have passed Clause 2(1) any restrictive trade practices regulations of the Community are directly applicable in law, and, therefore, my hon. Friend's argument is going into reverse. If the subsection were deleted, we should be governed purely by Clause 2(1), which is a protection the small businessmen require, just as it is a protection the farmers require.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Restrictive Trade Practices (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: What the NFU is arguing is that if we are in the Community and there is a CAP the whole system for agriculture and agricultural products should be applied directly to British agriculture and should not be left to the discretion of the RPC. That is the point.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Restrictive Trade Practices (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary for the care he has taken in replying to the debate. What he has said about agriculture will not please the farmers in this country, and I hope the Government will have second thoughts about the matter and, if necessary, bring in a Bill to put the position right. But at the request of my hon. Friend the Member for Brighouse and...

Orders of the Day — Procedure (Sub Judice Rule) (28 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: My hon. Friend the Member for Peterborough (Sir Harmar Nicholls) said that he was anxious to save you from yourself, Mr. Speaker, and he wondered why this question had arisen. I remind you that on 20th April you said you would welcome an inquiry by the Select Committee of Procedure into this matter because of the changed circumstances since 1963. It was on the suggestion of my right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: £ Sterling (Exchange Rate) (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the very wise and timely decision that he took last Friday, but will not the success of his policy depend on his ability to contain the increase in money supply in the next few months?

Business of the House (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: While I appreciate the Government's reasons for not accepting all the Select Committee's recommendations, which I think is probably a very wise precaution to take as the Phillimore Committee is still discussing the matters before it, will my right hon. Friend be putting down a Motion to amend the 1963 Resolution of the House so as to clear the position in the future?

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Lancaster House Agreement on Commonwealth Sugar (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Surely the right hon. Gentleman is quoting a wrong figure. Under the new price scheme of the Common Market the intervention price is £98·81 a ton.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Lancaster House Agreement on Commonwealth Sugar (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I agree with the last words of the hon. Member for Penistone (Mr. John Mendelson), and I think that my hon. Friend the Member for Devizes (Mr. Charles Morrison) made the strongest speech that could be made from either side of the Committee in favour of this Amendment. However, I take issue with the hon. Member for Manchester, Wythenshawe (Mr. Alfred Morris) who talked about breaking the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Lancaster House Agreement on Commonwealth Sugar (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Yes, doubled. What hon. Members do not realise—I had to correct the right hon. Member for Workington because he was out of date—is that since we last talked about sugar, there has been an uplift of price. When I was quoting a figure of the target price of £103a ton and an intervention price of £98·81 per ton, I was quoting figures given in April to my hon. Friend the Member for Devizes...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Lancaster House Agreement on Commonwealth Sugar (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I am most grateful to my right hon. Friend. It is very helpful that he has given us this information. I do not want him to intervene again, but I presume that he will not be able to continue the present subsidy once we enter the Community, because that is against the Treaty of Rome. Therefore, it will mean an increase, according to my right hon. Friend's figures, of 24 per cent. But, in...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Lancaster House Agreement on Commonwealth Sugar (27 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: The protocol refers to the price of "the sugar in question". It is not dealing with sugar produced from sugar beet grown at home. It refers to all sugar that is refined here and elsewhere presumably under the CSA.

Complaint of Privilege (22 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. In giving your consideration to the matter, will you bear in mind paragraph 130 of the Report of the Select Committee on Parliamentary Privilege, which said that premature disclosure of proceedings should, subject to certain qualifications, be regarded as a contempt of this House?

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: The Common Agricultural Policy (22 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: While we are dealing with this, it would be helpful if the Minister gave us a clearer picture of the position in British agriculture after our entry than we received on the first, rather technical, Amendment. There are five points about which farmers are worried. The first has been referred to by the right hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Peart). We want a meaningful Review. The fear is...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: The Common Agricultural Policy (22 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I am reassured by that. I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for making that clear. It is important that we should be able, both during the transitional period and thereafter, to help agriculture to become efficient by means of a capital grant rather than by this form of subsidised loan, which has not been effective in the EEC. The worry in British agriculture is that the picture is...
