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...

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

Mr John Wheatley: I am coming to them.

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

Mr John Wheatley: It is not necessary to duplicate legislation, and I am merely trying to indicate what already exists. In so far as Statutes or orders exist, they should be read with this Clause. Under the Destructive Insects and Pests Acts the Secretary of State can make an order and he must specify the particular pests or insects in respect of which the powers are to be exercised. Orders have been made in...

Clause 49. — (Prohibition of night shooting and use of spring traps above ground.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I cannot follow the trend of this Debate, bearing in mind the Debate which we had on this topic in Committee upstairs. If there was one subject on which there was complete unanimity at the end of a discussion during Committee stage, it was that we should consider removing from the Clause the words: except in a rabbit hole, in order to prevent the continued use of the steel trap in Scotland. I...

Clause 49. — (Prohibition of night shooting and use of spring traps above ground.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: —but we got the support of the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie), who not only gave his own view, but rehearsed, as usual, the views of all the other Members on the Committee on the point. There was complete unanimity in the Committee. I cannot understand why opposition should now arise from hon. Members opposite to something which was conceded as being desirable—

Clause 49. — (Prohibition of night shooting and use of spring traps above ground.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: Again, I willingly exclude the right hon. and learned Gentleman from my impeachment. I intended to deal with the points he has raised. We are left with snaring, gassing or shooting. As usual in Scotland a movement is always going on whereby we are experimenting with a view to ascertaining what further humane methods could be adopted. The right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for...

Clause 49. — (Prohibition of night shooting and use of spring traps above ground.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: As we are very much a democratic institution, we left this matter for consideration by the Scottish Grand Committee, and the Scottish Grand Committee were quite obviously unanimous in the view that this should be taken out of the Bill. We are giving effect to that unanimously expressed wish —expressed after a very full Debate—and in those circumstances I do not think it is necessary to...

Clause 53. — (Interpretation of Part III.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I really cannot appreciate the purpose of this Amendment, because one of the functions of this Bill is to try to control the actions and movements of deer in so far as they might have a detrimental effect on agriculture and the crops of the country. I find it difficult to understand why one should restrict the control to red deer and not to other species of deer. We have various species of...

Clause 53. — (Interpretation of Part III.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I do not intend to go through the Bill again.

Clause 53. — (Interpretation of Part III.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: Quite obviously, if they have these predatory habits they will not confine them to land of no special value. Even the so-called ornamental deer, normally enclosed in parks, on occasions break out. The Japanese deer we had in Peebleshire broke out and became fifth columnists and did much damage. Accordingly, I cannot see any justification for confining the definition to red deer, and I trust...
