Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New University, Stirling (22 Jul 1964)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New University, Stirling (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I will certainly convey the hon. Member's comments to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. Although, however, the announcement was not made verbally, it was made in this House.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Uncertificated Teachers (22 Jul 1964)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Uncertificated Teachers (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I referred to this matter in great detail during our education debate. Some of the teachers to whom the hon. Member refers are not necessarily incompetent to teach, but we certainly do all that we can to try to persuade them to become certificated.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Uncertificated Teachers (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Of the 11 substandard uncertificated teachers to whom I referred, one is an assistant games mistress and one is a teacher in a nursery class. There are 10 of these teachers in grant-aided schools. Eight are in one school—a Roman Catholic school—and all eight are brothers.

Fire Prevention Legislation (Clubs) (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I would refer the hon. Member to the replies given by my hon. Friend the Joint Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department on 18th March and 16th April. The legislation referred to will extend to Scotland.

Sheriff Courts, Glasgow (Accommodation) (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Lanarkshire House has been bought for this purpose from Lanark County Council. I understand that work has started on the alterations that are required and that the Courthouse Commissioners hope to bring the building into use by October next.

Orders of the Day — STATUTE LAW REVISION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: The authority is the Consolidation of Enactments (Procedure) Act, 1949, whereby a Joint Committee of the House of Lords and House of Commons is appointed to consider all Consolidation Bills, Statute Law Revision Bills, and Bills presented under the Act to which I have referred. The hon. and learned Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) comes from South of the Border. I imagine that he finds...

Orders of the Day — STATUTE LAW REVISION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I assure the hon. and learned Gentleman that the Union will be quite happily preserved, despite this provision. The right hon. Member for Clackmannan and East Stirlingshire (Mr. Woodburn) need not worry. I am certain that nothing in the Bill would do anything against the women of Scotland.

Orders of the Day — STATUTE LAW REVISION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I will briefly reply, by leave of the House, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I would like to reassure hon. Members who are concerned, quite rightly, that some Acts which they describe as being of great historical importance to our country should not pass from the scene without their disappearance being questioned, but I think that my hon. Friend the Member for South Angus (Sir J. Duncan) put his finger...

Orders of the Day — STATUTE LAW REVISION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I do not think I can give way to the hon. and learned Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) because I am speaking by leave of the House and I wish to reassure my Scottish colleagues in particular. As the House will realise, evidence is given by members of the Lord Advocate's Department about these Acts and very many pertinent questions are put to them by members of the Joint Committee. Lord...

Orders of the Day — STATUTE LAW REVISION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (22 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Although this is a modernising Government, we do not consider that everything can be done at once. I can give the hon. and learned Gentleman no assurance that in the next Parliament, when we again have the authority of Government, we shall not do exactly the same thing again.

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1964–65: New Clause. — (Amendment to the Law Regarding Divorce on the Ground of Incurable Insanity.) (21 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: Despite that enticing invitation from the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross), I am afraid that it will be my duty to advise the House not to accept the new Clause, although it was so persuasively moved by the hon. Member for Greenock (Dr. Dickson Mabon). I, too, was somewhat taken with the hon. Gentleman's persuasive powers. I think that what is really on his mind, and what is worrying...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1964–65: New Clause. — (Amendment to the Law Regarding Divorce on the Ground of Incurable Insanity.) (21 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: If the curator, in the first instance, in exercising his discretion, had decided that he would not lead evidence to rebut the presumption and, nevertheless, the court asked for a report, as it invariably does, from the Mental Welfare Commission, and it felt that this report cast a doubt whether the defender was incurably insane, it would ask the curator to investigate the evidence again, and...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1964–65: New Clause. — (Amendment to the Law Regarding Divorce on the Ground of Incurable Insanity.) (21 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I thought that I had answered that question. I said that if the curator has not brought forward the evidence, the court can always call on the Mental Welfare Commission for a report. If that report gave the court cause to consider that the defender was not incurably insane, they would ask the curator, first, on what grounds he had exercised his discretion not to put forward the evidence, and,...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1964–65: Clause 5. — (Restriction of Certain Defences.) (21 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: It might be of some assistance if I were to try to clarify the difference between the meaning of insanity as a defence to divorce for cruelty, and incurable insanity as a ground for divorce. Certainly in my own mind there was some confusion, and some hon. Members may share that confusion. The two are quite separate, and the word "insanity" has a different judicial interpretation in each...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Education) (2 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: When my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State ended his speech at the start of the debate, he said he hoped this would be the start of a constructive discussion. We can all agree that it has been. Behind all the speeches, behind the criticisms and, once or twice, the party political points, hon. Members have shown a very genuine wish to do what they can to ensure that our educational...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Education) (2 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: I realise that the hon. Gentleman himself is anxious about the situation, and that is exactly why I went to some length to explain it. However, I would very much like to pass on, as I have just under a quarter of an hour in which to deal with the rest of the debate—[Interruption.] The hon. Member for Edinburgh, East (Mr. Willis) likes to interrupt from a sitting position. My right hon....

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Education) (2 Jul 1964)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: We have not at the moment come to any decision about altering the code on the size of school classes. We do not think that that would be responsible at the present time. The hon. Member for Glasgow, Woodside (Mr. Carmichael), whose speech I regret I did not hear, advocated allowances for particular schools to try to meet this teacher shortage, but I understand that the hon. Member for...
