Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: We must all recognise the seriousness with which the hon. Gentleman has approached his task of trying to frame an Amendment which would meet the problems he has posed, but he will not be surprised if I tell him that I cannot accept it at this stage, just as I could not accept it at an earlier stage. The hon. Gentleman admitted that there were defects in the Amendment. He referred to the...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I am not referring only to those people who are not able to express themselves very well in writing. I think that to prescribe a form in the rather rigid manner envisaged in the Amendment would not meet all the types of complaints which we have in mind. The hon. Gentleman said that he was concerned to try to protect the police. I am glad that he mentioned that, because when we talk about...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: We missed the hon. Member for Glasgow, Craigton (Mr. Millan) in Committee. He has taken a leading part on almost every other Bill that has affected Scotland. When the English part of the Bill was discussed my right hon. Friend made it clear that an Amendment in exactly similar terms to this would be moved in Schedule 6, and that was accepted. No query was made about the effect of the third...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The hon. Member for Dundee, West (Mr. Doig) thought that all the evidence should be revealed. It has been accepted that there are times when inquiries must be held in private and that if all the evidence were made available the whole point of the inquiry would be defeated. The hon. Member for Glasgow, Maryhill (Mr. Hannan) referred to what was called the Thurso case. This was conducted under...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The effect of this Amendment would be to make a chief constable who failed to comply with a requirement to submit a report to the police authority responsible himself for referring the requirement to the Secretary of State after consultation with the authority.

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I certainly agree that they are most important. Therefore, I stress after consultation with the police authority". Under the Bill it is for the police authority to refer the matter to the Secretary of State where there is a dispute. The hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) maintains that his Amendment would provide a tidier method of dealing with this procedure. It is true that, in practice,...

Police Bill: Schedule 6. — (Amendments of Police (Scotland) Act 1956.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: There is certain substance in the hon. Member's argument, and I confess that I do not feel very strongly about retaining these words. But I put it to him that if the Secretary of State then communicates his decision and it goes back to the chief constable, in a way might be thought to by-pass the local authority. I am, however, more convinced by his argument that we want to keep ahead of...

Police Bill: Schedule 9. — (Enactments Repealed.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move Amendment No. 72, in page 56, line 15, at the end to insert: 15 & 16 Geo 6 and 1 Eliz. 2. c. 61. The Prisons (Scotland) Act 1952. Section 13. This was discussed with the Amendment on page 38, line 9.

Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Continuance of Act of 1949.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: When we narrowly escaped defeat in Committee by the casting vote of the Chairman, I quite expected hon. Members opposite to put down the same Amendment again. Of course, I realise that there was feeling on both sides of the Committee that something should, if possible, be done on these lines. I can assure the House that I have given a great deal of thought to this problem, and, as my hon....

Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Continuance of Act of 1949.) (7 Apr 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) says "So what", but whether, in the 1949 Act, we wish to have three further pages on a subject of this complex nature I very much doubt, and I shall try to show why. 9.0 p.m. First, the 1927 Act in Section 1 confers a right to compensation and makes provision for determining the amount of the payment. Section 2 places some limitations on a tenant's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Traffic Police (Tape Recorders) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: No, Sir, not at present, because meantime I think that better evidence can be obtained by existing methods.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Traffic Police (Tape Recorders) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I said "not at present" but there is a view that to take tape recordings of speech is not necessarily reliable evidence of, for example, slurred speech, and that existing methods are more satisfactory.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Training Colleges (Contracts) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: No Scottish firm has constructed similar buildings for my right hon. Friend's Department. The urgency of these projects—which must be ready to take in students in October—precluded the use of normal competitive tendering.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Training Colleges (Contracts) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I am not at all aware of that allegation. The hon. Member will, no doubt, know that there was a question of urgency in the building of these projects because originally it had been hoped to adapt existing buildings, and at that time there was no firm which was known to have the exact ability and experience—

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Training Colleges (Contracts) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: —to build these colleges, which must be ready by October.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Training Colleges (Contracts) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Yes. In fact, 70 per cent. of the cost is being used locally in materials and equipment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Training Colleges (Contracts) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: No, I do not accept that. A great deal of thought had gone into seeing whether it was possible to adapt existing buildings. When that was found not to be practical, these tenders were given.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Motoring Offences (Diplomatic Immunity) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Procurators fiscal are instructed by the Lord Advocate and there are standing instructions by which, where diplomatic immunity is claimed and there is any doubt as to the person's entitlement to claim it, the case is referred to the Crown Office for consideration. Diplomatic immunity from prosecution derives from the law, not from the prosecutor's direction.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Motoring Offences (Diplomatic Immunity) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Diplomatic immunity is granted on a reciprocal basis and has good reason behind it. Neither my right hon. Friend nor the Lord Advocate has received representations about difficulties in Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Jordanhill Training College (Fire) (18 Mar 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: No, Sir. My right hon. Friend has not held an inquiry into the cause of this fire but the local fire authority told him, however, that it was caused by the ignition of a gymnasium mattress, which had been left near or in contact with an electric heater.
