Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill: Clause 13. — (Application to Scotland.) (16 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in line 31, to leave out from "expression," to the first "the," in line 32, and to insert: 'rental equivalent' means the amount of the premium, or of so much thereof as at the time of the tribunal's determination has not been repaid or recovered divided by the number of rent-periods between.

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill: Clause 13. — (Application to Scotland.) (16 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: If the words are read in conjunction with the Clause as originally drafted, and if one has in view the terms of the Amendments to Clause 2, I do not think any of the hon. Members who understood the Amendments to Clause 2 will have any difficulty in understanding these Amendments. It may be that the hon. and gallant Member for Pollok (Commander Galbraith) was not present when the Amendments to...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill: Clause 13. — (Application to Scotland.) (16 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: It may seem a long time ago, but it was not really a long time ago. I do not want to weary the Committee in going over the effect of these Amendments, as it was fully explained in relation to Clause 2. The effect of the Scottish application Clause is to spread the rental equivalent over the period of that part of seven years as is apposite to the particular case. While I agree that in reading...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill: Clause 13. — (Application to Scotland.) (16 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I find it difficult to understand the righteous indignation of the hon. Member for South Edinburgh (Sir W. Darling). He apparently feels that it is entirely out of place that legislation affecting Scotland should be incorporated in a Clause at the end of a Bill which is primarily concerned with England. I understand that to be the tenor of the hon. Member's argument. I could have understood...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill: Clause 13. — (Application to Scotland.) (16 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I think we can agree to be inconsistent. But before the hon. Gentleman makes attacks of this nature, he should see matters in a proper perspective. He will remember that we had rent tribunals in Scotland for three years before England had them. It has taken England three years to come abreast of us. Now that they have done so, and we feel it desirable that we should move ahead, we have no...

Orders of the Day — Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill (22 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: Before moving the Third Reading of this Bill, I have to acquaint the House that I have it in command from His Majesty to signify to the House that His Majesty, having been informed of the purpose of the Bill, gives his consent, as far as His Majesty's interest is concerned, that the House may do therein as they shall think fit. I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read the Third time."

Orders of the Day — Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill (22 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: May I correct the hon. Member? The terms of reference of the Taylor Committee were confined to shops and the terms of reference of the first branch of the Guthrie Committee remit were confined to shops. No recommendation has been made by either Committee in relation to other premises.

Orders of the Day — Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill (22 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: The measure of the minimum of praise showered upon this Bill by the hon. Member for South Edinburgh (Sir W. Darling) is perhaps in direct disproportion to the value of this Bill. It certainly gives me great pleasure to shepherd this small but important Bill through its final stages. It is not a paltry Bill. Hon. Members opposite recognise that it sets out to remedy an evil which unfortunately...

Orders of the Day — Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill (22 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: We were invited at a late stage to incorporate into the Bill a type of premises which had not been dealt with by the Committee. This a temporary Measure. What happens in the future will depend on circumstances and the final Guthrie Report. It is perhaps satisfactory to observe the approval which the more general application of this doctrine is receiving from hon. Gentlemen on both sides of...

Orders of the Day — Tenancy of Shops (Scotland) Bill (22 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I did not intend to infer that it was at a late stage of the Bill. What I meant was that it was at a late stage in the proceedings so far as this type of remedy was concerned. There is no doubt about that, because for months the request was that we should implement the Taylor Report.

Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Application to Scotland.) (7 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I do not think that really arises out of this Amendment, because the Amendment is purely a drafting Amendment to bring in various Clauses in place of the ones originally there. With respect, I doubt very much whether on this drafting Amendment it would be in Order to go into the whole merits of the application of the Bill to Scotland.

Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Application to Scotland.) (7 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I hesitate, not through any lack of willingness to comply with the right hon. and gallant Gentleman's wishes, but because I feel that I should be entirely out of Order in trying to give an explanation of the effect of three new Clauses in this Bill on an Amendment which deals with one new Clause. The only effect of this particular Amendment, as the right hon. and gallant Gentleman will...

Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Application to Scotland.) (7 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I cannot understand the complaints of the right hon. and gallant Gentleman about the procedure being unsatisfactory. I make no comment as to whether or not that reflects on you, Mr. Deputy-Speaker.

Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Application to Scotland.) (7 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I always understood, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, that you were the master of procedure in these Debates. If the right hon. and gallant Gentleman had wished to get an explanation of the application of these new Clauses to Scotland, then when we were examining these new Clauses he might then have asked in what respect they applied to Scotland, and what differences, if any, there were. He did not do so....

Clause 2. — (Powers of Consular Officers in Relation to Property in Scotland of Deceased Persons.) (22 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 3, line 8, at the end, to insert "or his successors in office." The purpose of this Amendment is to give effect in Clause 2 to the same principle which was incorporated in the last Amendment to Clause 1, which is to ensure that, where a consular officer is appointed as attorney in Scotland for a foreign national, if that consular officer were to demit office, his...

Clause 2. — (Powers of Consular Officers in Relation to Property in Scotland of Deceased Persons.) (22 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 3, line 14, to leave out paragraphs (a) and (b), and to insert: (a) is entitled to payment or delivery of any money or property in respect of any interest in the estate of a deceased person or is entitled to payment or delivery of any money or property becoming due on the death of any person; or(b) is a person to whom any money or property comprised in the estate of a...

Clause 2. — (Powers of Consular Officers in Relation to Property in Scotland of Deceased Persons.) (22 Mar 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: The reason why it was not necessary to incorporate in Clause 2 an Amendment specifying a time limit, such as was incorporated in Clause 1, is due to the fact that the whole procedure in Scotland is entirely different from that followed in England. As hon. Members will appreciate, in England a grant of representation is made to the consular officer. In Scotland, the foreign national will be...

Housing (Scotland) Bill (13 Apr 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: Which Front Bench?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill (24 May 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." The purposes of this small but complicated Bill are broadly three. First, to clarify and as far as is necessary to amend the application to partnerships of those sections of the National Health Service Acts which prohibit the sale of practices by doctors in the Service, and which compensate them for the resulting loss of the selling...

Orders of the Day — Clause 13. — (Rules of Court.) (31 May 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 14, line 11, to leave out from the beginning, to the end of line 16, and to insert: (3) The Court may, by act of adjournal or act of sederunt, as the case may be, restrict to such proportion of the fees for the time being applicable as may be provided therein the fees to be paid to auditors of court, messengers-at-arms, sheriff officers and shorthand writers in any case...
