Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Regulations (28 Jun 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: If I may say so, the hon. Member is a little late in expressing that regret. It should have been expressed when the Act was before us, not when we are considering the regulations. The other points which were raised by the hon. Member come back to the restoration of the land and the interpretation of Regulation 9 (1). I will not, brevitatis causa, repeat what was said by my right hon. Friend...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Regulations (28 Jun 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: It is so general that it is not necessary to incorporate it in the regulations, because the Central Land Board must have regard to these factors, and particularly to the various factors which have to go to constitute the basis of the development charge. In view of the general powers which have been granted to them under the statute I think that to try and go from general principles in...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Scotland) Regulations (23 Jun 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, That the Draft National Health Service (Scotland) (Superannuation) (Amendment) Regulations, 1948, a copy of which was presented on 9th June, be approved.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 42 — (Miscellaneous amendments as to election expenses and propaganda.) (15 Jun 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: On this vexed question of when is a band not a band the simple solution is to be found in the withdrawal by the right hon. Member for North Leeds (Mr. Peake) of his Amendment and by leaving the law as it stands at present. If it is put to me. What is the existing law, I would refer to the existing Corrupt Practices Act, in which there is reference to "bands of music"? That might, as the...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 68. — (Registration appeals.) (15 Jun 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 66, line 15, after "lie," to insert "on any point of law." This Amendment is designed to ensure that the law under this Bill will remain the same as it is at present. The existing law in Scotland with regard to these appeals is that a point can be taken by way of appeal on a matter of law only. The Clause as at present drafted would allow appeals on any question at...

Scottish Business (New Standing Orders) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: We have listened for three hours to an interesting and, I might say, exhaustive discussion on this subject and a variety of others. The Debate has been particularly in relation to this subject which one hopes will have a beneficial result upon our legislative machinery. I fully agree with the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Hillhead (Mr. J. S. C. Reid) that the proposals are...

Scottish Business (New Standing Orders) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I can tell the hon. Member this: whatever difficulty may exist in the interpretation of the word "exclusively," much greater difficulties would exist in interpreting the words "mainly" or "largely," or anything else of that nature, because in those cases one definitely gets into the area of speculation. Further to that point, I think it is obvious that once we get a non-Scottish interest...

Scottish Business (New Standing Orders) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: We have to take arbitrary figures in both cases, but in the first case, where there has been no dis- cussion on the Bill, we feel that 10 is a fairly good safeguard against irresponsible action. We trust that there never would be irresponsible action, but as a safeguard we must have a certain number, otherwise we could have one or two instead of 10. When the Bill comes back from the Scottish...

Scottish Business (New Standing Orders) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: That is just the type of question to which one cannot give a definite answer. It may all depend upon the nature of the Bill. It may depend upon the time-table in that week. It may all depend on what is going on in the House. There will be a variety of circumstances which may affect determination of the question whether or not it is desirable for the Committee to adjourn at the end of a...

Scottish Business (New Standing Orders) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: We cannot really go into all the possibilities. I think that we can be quite sure that Mr. Speaker will be able to make up his mind which Bills are exclusively Scottish and which are not. There may be Bills of a purely Scottish interest for which time could not be found immediately in the House in the existing programme, and which, if they fulfil the other conditions, could be brought...

New Clause. — (Leases to continue in force notwithstanding variation of terms, etc.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." The purpose of the new Clause is to remove certain doubts which were expressed in Committee whether changes in the condition of a lease, brought about as a result of the operation of Clauses II and 14 of the Bill, would constitute a new lease. Hon. Members will remember that various Clauses provide for variations in leases, Clause II...

New Clause. — (Leases to continue in force notwithstanding variation of terms, etc.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Member for West Perth (Mr. Snadden) asked whether or not Clause 13 (2) would apply to leases which had been carried on, for instance, by tacit relocation. He probably knows that there is a later Amendment to clear up the position with regard to tacit relocation, in order to make quite clear and beyond doubt that where a lease is carried on by tacit relocation a new lease is not...

Clause 4. — (Compensation to landlord for deterioration of holding.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 4, line 20, at the end, to insert: Provided that if the landlord and the tenant enter into an agreement in writing in that behalf, a record of the condition of the holding shall, notwithstanding that it was made during the occupancy of a previous tenant, be deemed, for the purposes of this subsection, to have been made during the occupancy of the tenant and on such date...

Clause Ii. — (Variation of rent of holdings.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 14, line 24, after "(3)," to insert "or paragraph (b) of subsection (6)." This Amendment is consequential on the Government Amendments made in Committee to paragraph (2, d) of the Ninth Schedule to the Bill, which relates to Section 3 of the 1923 Act. The new paragraph (6, b), added to Section 3 of the 1923 Act, povides that where the parties so far disagree as to the...

Clause 13. — (Respective liabilities of landlord and tenant for provision and maintenance of fixed equipment and for payment of insurance premiums.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 16, line 31, after "thereof," to insert: and will during the tenancy effect such replacement or renewal of the buildings or other fixed equipment as may be rendered necessary by natural decay or by fair wear and tear. The purpose of this Amendment is to make it clear that the replacement or renewal of the buildings or other fixed equipment which may be rendered...

Clause 21. — (Provisions as to arbitration.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 22, line 15, to leave out from "shall" to "be" in line 16. This Amendment is identical with one moved by the Opposition in Committee, but which was withdrawn on the assurance that we accepted the principle and promised to consider the matter further. The Clause provides, inter alia, that any claim, of whatever nature, between landlord and tenant which arises on or out...

Clause 26. — (Powers of Secretary of State in cases of bad estate management or bad husbandry.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 24, line 15, at the end, to insert: (2) A warning notice served under the last foregoing Subsection shall specify the general grounds on which the Secretary of State is satisfied as mentioned in Subsection (1) of this Section. It was desired in Committee that specification should be given of the grounds in respect of which a warning notice was being served. This...

Clause 27. — (Changes of owner or occupier effected without approval of Secretary of State not to invalidate warning notices.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 25, line 17, to leave out "disposition of," and to insert: transfer of any interest in the. This Amendment and the two following Amendments may be taken together. They have been introduced in order to get rid of a difficulty raised by the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Hillhead (Mr. J. S. C. Reid) which arose during the Committee stage in view of the...

Clause 38. — (Control of injurious animals and birds.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 40, line 20, to leave out from first "steps," to the end of line 21, and to insert "as may be so specified." This Amendment has been put down because during the Committee stage the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Hillhead (Mr. J. S. C. Reid) and I discussed the effect of a recent court decision in Edinbugh and whether as a result of it, this Clause...

Clause 38. — (Control of injurious animals and birds.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I have listened to the hon. and gallant Member for Perth (Colonel Gomme-Duncan) on many occasions and on many subjects but I have seldom heard him speak with such authority, such detail of fact to support his argument and such enthusiasm as he has on this subject of pests. However, I am afraid that we cannot accept his Amendments, much as we sympathise with the underlying feeling which...
