Orders of the Day — European Launcher Development Organisation (Immunities and Privileges) (29 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: My hon. Friends are very appreciative of the trouble the Minister of State has taken to go into this matter, but he seems to imply that this is rather a complicated matter because it is subject to international agreement. Surely it is not too difficult, to have, as part of the Order, a definition clause on categories A, B, C and L. It is not necessary to have it in the Explanatory Memorandum....

Oil and Gas (Continental Shelf) (21 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Would the Minister say whether one of the criteria that he will take into account in granting further licences will be that the work in connection with drilling rigs or any shore installations must be in development districts, notably the North-East and the City of Aberdeen? Secondly, would he also give a progress report on the exploration to date and tell us how far it has been successful?

Foreign Affairs (19 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: This has been a serious and very interesting debate. My hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice (Mr. Wall) reflected the feelings of both sides when he asked for more time for debates on foreign affairs. To me, there appear to be deserts of Parliamentary time when we have to deal with the Government's unwieldy Finance Bill and do not have sufficient opportunity in the House to discuss what is...

Foreign Affairs (19 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: That is true. My right hon Friend the Member for Barnet quoted to the House this afternoon what the Prime Minister of Trinidad had said on exactly this point, and he said that that represented the views of several Commonwealth Prime Ministers.

Foreign Affairs (19 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Indeed, but he also said, and I have the quotation from The Times here, that the Commonwealth Prime Ministers had not come to London to support what he called "Wilson's mission". Those are not my words. Then there were the extraordinary manoeuvres over the Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance, which have been referred to by several hon. Members,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Teachers (Recruitment) (14 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Can the right hon. Gentleman break down the figures to indicate the kind of applicants, whether women or men, and of what qualifications?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: National Museum of Antiquities (14 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Does the Secretary of State realise that a very important question is involved and is causing a great deal of public concern throughout Scotland? Is he doing anything to reconsider the policy that the central museums in Edinburgh should have the right to store these articles and themselves to say that they are most accessible to students and scholars? Would he not agree that the St. Ninian's...

British Subjects Overseas (Repatriation) (5 Jul 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The Minister has mentioned that in 20,000 cases it was not possible to obtain repayment. Will he say whether any undertaking is required to be given, or what are the legal obligations of people who take advantage of these facilities? What was the cost to the taxpayer in the 20,000 cases in which a refund was unobtainable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (Information Services) (21 Jun 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: What is the total budget for this area for last year and, as the Minister of State said that there was to be a reorganisation there, what is proposed in the coming year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Jordan Waters Dispute (21 Jun 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: What is the attitude of Her Majesty's Government to President Bourguiba's recent suggestion that in order to ease tension in this area certain United Nations resolutions should be applied, including partition?

Adjournment (Whitsuntide) (1 Jun 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: On a point of order. Is it in order for the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Michael Foot) once again—in fact, three times—to misrepresent what was said by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition? My right hon. Friend not only asked for a debate on foreign affairs generally some weeks ago, but also asked for a debate on the United Nations.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Travel (Passports) (3 May 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: In what respect do the new documents issued to British citizens by the Gibraltar Passport Office differ from the old, and why have these changes been made?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cyprus (United Nations Base) (3 May 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Would the hon. Gentleman comment on the report of the United Nations Mediator?

Oral Answers to Questions — Vietnam (3 May 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that we on this side of the House fully support Her Majesty's Government in their support of an American policy in Vietnam, but will he explain how it was that his colleague the Minister of State, a former president of U.S.D.A.W., remained silent at the union's conference the other day when the union passed a resolution urging the Government to dissociate...

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (3 May 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Is the Foreign Secretary convinced about one of the five conditions, that which insisted that the Government should have the right to determine the internal planning of this country's economy? As the Government are about to embark on the nationalisa- tion of steel, would not this inhibit them from entering the European Economic Community?

Oral Answers to Questions — SOUTH-EAST ASIA (Mr. GORDON WALKER'S VISIT) (3 May 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: In view of the Foreign Secretary's statement concerning the terms of reference of Mr. Gordon Walker being concerned mainly with fact finding and his having no authority to negotiate, can the Foreign Secretary say in what respect these visits will be useful compared with the usual diplomatic channels?

Immunities and Privileges (the Gambia) (3 May 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I think that the House expected that the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs would have presented this Order to the House. While I recognise that it is not very long since we last discussed the question of dual citizenship, I think in December of last year, when the Diplomatic Privileges Order then involved 21 countries, nevertheless this Order, although small, is important because it adds...

Clause 4. — (Secretary of State to Have Regard to Recommendations.) (27 Apr 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: We recognise that this is a drafting Amendment. I would merely say in passing that it almost looked as if the Government had hoped that their Bill, small though it was, would pass through all its stages before Christmas last year. That was a hope which could not be fulfilled. We therefore accept that the Amendment is necessary.

Clause 5. — (Colleges of Education.) (27 Apr 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I beg to move, in page 2, line 45, at the end to insert: to which he shall have due regard in the exercise of his powers under section 71 of the Education (Scotland) Act 1962". We had a considerable debate on this question in Committee. Many hon. Members on both sides will recall that the Educational Institute of Scotland was particularly concerned about subsection (3). As it reads, it...

Clause 5. — (Colleges of Education.) (27 Apr 1965)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I am glad that the Secretary of State has seen fit to come to the rescue of his hon. Friend. As my hon. and learned Friend said in Committee, we greatly missed the right hon. Gentleman's presence there. Indeed, as far as I know he has made only one major speech on education. During the Committee stage—and this is really the reason for the Amendment—the hon. Lady said it was essential to...
