Traffic in Towns (Reports) (27 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I welcome the Report and also the decision to carry out a comprehensive transport survey, which is so long overdue. With regard to the immediate problem, is the Minister aware that in many industrial areas, particularly in the north of England, one of the most serious causes of congestion is the heavy traffic passing through the centre of towns? This is often a more serious problem than...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Schedule (27 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: There was something of an accusation, an unfair accusation, I think, in the words which the hon. Gentleman used. There are many West Indians and Pakistanis in my constituency, but I have nor. had pressure brought to bear on me.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Expensive Site Subsidies (26 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what estimate he has made of the cost in a full financial year of the increase in expensive site subsidies for the purpose of financing the acquisition of land for development.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Expensive Site Subsidies (26 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: We take it that the cost of the subsidies will be borne by the tax-payer. As the fortunate people who happen to own the land with increasing site value will reap the benefit of the subsidies, has the Minister definitely turned his back on any proposal for recouping for the community any part of the increased site value which has been created, directly or indirectly, by the community?

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land (Public Acquisition) (26 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what new machinery he intends to set up to carry out his proposed policy of public acquisition of land.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land (Public Acquisition) (26 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: There was some confusion in the minds of many hon. Members about what the Minister really meant by the passage in his speech of 18th November when he referred to devising new machinery. Will he make the point quite clear? Is it his intention to set up a development corporation or to make loans to existing authorities?

President Kennedy (Tributes) (25 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: In supporting this Motion, I am very conscious of the fact that it is no easy task for me to add anything new to the tributes which have been paid so movingly and so fittingly by the Foreign Secretary and the right hon. Member for Smethwick (Mr. Gordon Walker). This is not an occasion for merely observing the traditional proprieties. If one is to speak at all, one must speak from the heart....

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Rate Revaluation (19 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: If and when this much-needed relief is granted, will the cost be borne by other ratepayers in the same local authority district, by ratepayers in the country as a whole or by the Exchequer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Lord Denning (Inquiry) (30 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the Prime Minister understand that what has concerned some hon. Members is his own expression "other grounds"? What had he in mind in using that phrase?

Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (30 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I wish to take the opportunity of congratulating the hon. Member for Bristol, South-East (Mr. St. Clair) on the decision he has reached. Whatever one's views may be about the Wedgwood Benn case, I am sure the hon. Member in making the statement which we have just heard has acted wisely and honourably, and we admire him for it. I have only a very few comments to make. I am not sure whether...

Nuclear Weapons (Test Ban Treaty) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: May I join with other hon. Members in welcoming wholeheartedly the agreement which has been reached in Moscow and express the wish that this will indeed be a step towards general disarmament? I do not want to press the Prime Minister, in view of what he said, on the withdrawal clause, but may I ask him this? I am sure that we all hope that General de Gaulle will not now proceed with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Pensions (24 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Secretary of State for Air how much pension would be received today by a 14-year-old orphaned child of a squadron leader who retired on the 1956 Code after maximum service, if both parents had died on 3rd November, 1958; and how much it would be if the parents had died the next day.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Pensions (24 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Is it not very odd that a child who lost his parents before 4th November, 1958, should receive only £65 a year, whereas a child whose parents died on the day after that receives nearly three times as much, although in each case the father retired on the same day, with the same rank, and after the same length of service? Is not this an extraordinary anomaly which it is impossible to justify?

Orders of the Day — South Africa (Supply of Arms) (24 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I am glad that the hon. Member for Lancaster (Mr. Berkeley) took part in this debate. I found myself in agreement with almost the whole of his observations. In particular, I share with him concern at the damage done by the ambiguities in British policy in recent years. I think it impossible to justify any action that might assist the present Government of South Africa in pursuing its policy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Widowed Mothers (Earnings Rule) (23 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Will the right hon. Gentleman agree that this case of the widowed mothers and the earnings rule is one of a number of anomalies in the welfare services which should be looked into? There is a great time-lag between these anomalies arising and anything being done about them. Would not it be possible to have regular machinery whereby these matters are reported to the House, say annually, so...

Business of the House (18 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: As, I understand, the Government are giving consideration to the effectiveness—or, perhaps I should say, the ineffectiveness—of the Housing Act, 1961, in its application to multiple occupation and the scandalous abuse of the housing shortage by certain landlords, may we take it that in the debate on Monday an opportunity will be taken by the Government to announce the conclusions which...

Higher Education (17 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: The hon. Member for Wokingham (Mr. van Straubenzee) referred to the A-level examination. I will refer to that subject later. Owing to shortage of time I shall compress what I had intended to say. At the conclusion of his speech, the Chief Secretary spoke of the importance of maintaining the independence of the universities. I agree with that. I also agree that some countries are rather less...

Business of the House (4 Jul 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Is it the right hon. Gentleman's intention that there should be a debate on the case of Mr. Harold Philby and the recent disclosures relating to him?
