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

Mr Robin Turton: I agree that most of the points which I raised would be better dealt with later, but the arguments which my right hon. Friend has used about other commodities will not apply to wool.

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

Mr Robin Turton: Will my right hon. Friend confirm what my hon. Member for Devizes (Mr. Charles Morrison) said about Article 92 not meaning what it says?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Factory and Offices (Thirsk) (14 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what were the reasons for his direction on 10th May, 1972, to the North Riding County Council that they should refuse the out line application, dated 1st February, 1972, for the construction of a factory and offices on York Road, Thirsk, when the Thirsk by-pass is open to traffic.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Factory and Offices (Thirsk) (14 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Is my hon. Friend aware that the delay involved in the submission of a fresh application will deny employment to many men in a town where unemployment is particularly high? Will he do everything he can, therefore, to expedite reconsideration of the proposal when it is submitted?

Business of the House (8 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: May I remind my right hon. Friend that when he last answered Business Questions, he said that he would like to arrange a debate on the outstanding reports of the Select Committee on Procedure. I notice that he has not included them for next week. Will he consider whether he can make a statement during the course of next week about the Government's attitude to some of the recommendations of...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (8 Jun 1972)

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (8 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Could my hon. Friend explain exactly what he is telling us? I have here the figures submitted to the Council on 1st September 1971, which are, curiously enough, about 1,000 million more units of account than those which he has given.

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (8 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: With this Amendment we are discussing Amendment No. 53, which stands in my name and the names of my hon. and right hon. Friends, and which is different from and narrower than that moved by the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh, Leith (Mr. Ronald King Murray). There are always two considerations. There are those people who believe that it is in the country's interest to join the Community...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (8 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I am reading from the Fifth General Report of Activities in the Community in 1971: The first draft of the Communities' general budget for the financial year 1972 was submitted to the Council…This first draft, which used a new budgetary nomenclature, was based on a total of 4,100 million units of account…". The figures in the White Paper relate to 1973. Therefore, whatever figure we start...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill: Clause 2 (8 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: My hon. Friend has referred to the Consolidated Fund. That is not the point. The point is whether this comes directly out of the Consolidated Fund. If he looks at Erskine May, he will see that some things come out of the Consolidated Fund as Votes and some come out as Consolidated Fund Standing Services. It is this device which is being used, and it is normally used for the Civil List, Mr....

Beef (Prices and Import Duties) (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Does not the present situation present us with an opportunity to restrict British exports of meat to carcase meat and so avoid having to send animals abroad for very long journeys in defiance of the Balfour Assurances?

Death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Windsor (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: As one of the nine hon. Members who served in Parliament in the reign of King Edward VIII, I wish to add my tribute in support of the Motion. I remember well that gloomy December day when Stanley Baldwin came to the House with a message from the King and how, as backbenchers, after weeks of rumour and gossip, we were stunned and shocked with disappointment. The feeling of most of the House...

Business of the House (25 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Does my right hon. Friend recall that his predecessor always said that he would be most anxious to make the quickest possible response to any report from a Select Committee concerning the procedure of the House, and that, in fact, last November he promised a debate on the recommendations regarding length of speeches? Since then, there have been three reports, one dealing with the election of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 2: General Implementation of Treaties (24 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I wish to follow what the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson) and my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Darwen (Mr. Fletcher-Cooke) have said on the question of delegated legislation. I never liked the much-quoted Legal and Constitutional Implications of United Kingdom Membership of the European Communities which was brought in by the Labour Government, but at least Cmnd....

Orders of the Day — Clause 2: General Implementation of Treaties (24 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: In one part of his speech my hon. Friend refers to a great many matters having to be dealt with and in another part he refers to my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy, who on 15th February, as reported in column 282 of the OFFICIAL REPORT said that there would be four Statutory Orders in 1972 and 12 in 1973. Is my hon. Friend agreeing with my right hon. and learned...

Rhodesia (23 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: In view of what my right hon. Friend has said about the way that sanctions are being evaded, to the extent that only British businessmen are keeping them and that every other country is evading them so that last year Rhodesian exports were in value within 3 per cent. of the pre-sanctions level, will not a policy of continuing sanctions make a compromise settlement more difficult and drive...

Glasgow Education Authority (Default Order) (17 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Can you help us? It is clear under the Standing Order that you must hear the application on grounds of urgency, but surely it is out of order for an hon. Member to seek to present arguments which should be presented in the debate if the application is successful. Should not that rule be adhered to?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Group 14 — Children's Clothing (16 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: I am sorry that I was not present earlier in the debate. I apologise to the Committee, but I have been attending a Select Committee. I ask my right hon. Friend to give more consideration to Amendment No. 112, to which my name is attached and which deals with hearing aids. It may well be that the answer to the problem is not to zero-rate hearing aids under this Schedule but to fill the gap...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Group 14 — Children's Clothing (16 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: During the debate my hon. Friend has been arguing that the reason why he cannot grant this concession is that it is covered by Schedule 5. Now that he is dealing with hearing aids he is adopting a different approach. He is saying that he must exclude consideration of Schedule 5. He has said that Medresco aids are suitable for all impairments of hearing. If he consults his colleague the...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Bills (Reintroduction) (10 May 1972)

Mr Robin Turton: Will my hon. Friend reconsider this attitude? Surely this matter is one involving the exercise of your discretion, Mr. Speaker. It cannot be the function of the Select Committee on Procedure to inquire into or give directions to Mr. Speaker about how he exercises his discretion on the closure.
