Clause 60. — (Powers of management, etc., of land acquired by Secretary of State.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: This Clause deals only with land acquired by the Secretary of State under this Bill. Therefore, if, in relation to that land, other Acts apply by virtue of the terms of those other Acts, then, to that extent, the use of the land will be qualified by the terms of the other Acts. It is manifestly unnecessary and redundant to include in this Clause a proviso to the effect that the use of the...

Clause 85. — (Interpretation.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: Even if we were prepared to accept this Amendment, I think the right hon. and learned Gentleman will agree that it cannot be included in this part of the Bill, which is the interpretation Clause. That is merely a minor point, and if it were the only objection, it could have been overcome. As I have said, we cannot accept this Amendment, because we must remember that the Secretary of State...

Clause 85. — (Interpretation.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I said "economic," taking the long-term point of view, but we cannot gauge that during the currency of the first year or two of acquisition. I can give an undertaking that the Secretary of State will not design land unless it can be put to good agricultural use, bearing in mind the future long-term policy.

Ninth Schedule. — (Minor and consequential amendments.) (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 81, line 41, at the end, to insert: 10. In Section twenty-six, in Subsection (2) (which Subsection relates to the renewal of a lease by tacit relocation) for the word 'renewed,' in both places where it occurs, there shall be substituted the words continued in force. This Amendment is introduced in order to make certain the position of leases which are renewed by tacit...

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: May I endorse what was said by the hon. and gallant Member in relation to a remark by the hon. Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby). Let us, in this discussion, try to keep a proper sense of proportion; let us try to view this question on its merits, free from any personalities and from any other considerations. While I welcome, and on this side of the Table we welcome, the assurance given...

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: If the hon. Member does not agree with that, I think he is the only hon. Member who has spoken in the Debate who has made that assertion. Whether or not the hon. Member for South Ayrshire or anyone else thinks that it should be preserved, we must recognise that even if this Bill were rejected the office would remain and the sum of £2,000 would be allowed to the High Commissioner to meet his...

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: If the hon. Member waits, I will deal with his speech. It has appeared in the national Press of this country under the heading "Increase of Salary to Lord High Commissioner."

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I think I am right in saying that it was the "Daily Express," but other people have given it prominence from the point of view of paying an increase in salary. The hon. Member for South Ayrshire challenged the Secretary of State to say when he had ever referred to it as salary. May I refer him to a Question he himself asked on 3rd February of this year, as reported in the OFFICIAL REPORT. He...

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I do not want this matter to develop into anything personal, but my right hon. Friend was challenged, and that is why I quoted this instance. When we introduce personalities into these matters there is a danger that we get away from the real arguments. I regret that personalities have been brought in. Reference has been made to the right hon. Member for Linlinthgow (Mr. Mathers), and in the...

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I really do not propose to develop this point, because the hon. Member for South Ayrshire has agreed that he did use that word. I have with me excerpts from other national newspapers in which this word "salary" has been used, and used quite wrongly.

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: No, I shall not give way again. Putting the matter in its proper perspective, I feel it would be the wish of the people of Scotland that this office should be carried on with a certain degree of dignity commensurate with its nature. I think it would also be the wish of the people of Scotland that if it is necessary to pay for that office, the people responsible for the appointment should make...

Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Bill (28 Apr 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: It was 1931, and that date was mentioned by my hon. Friend, and yet nothing was done between 1931 and 1948. It was the hon. Member for North Edinburgh who made that remark. The position, however, was different, because the holder of the office was neither an ex-miner nor an ex-railway clerk during those years, and the incumbent of the office during that time was able personally to meet the...

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...

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 — Town and Country Planning Regulations (28 Jun 1948)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, That the Town and Country Planning (Minerals) (Scotland) Regulations, 1948, dated 13th May, 1948, a copy of which was presented on 14th May, be approved. These Regulations are the counterpart Regulations for Scotland to the previous Regulations which were passed for England.

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

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Member for West Aberdeen (Mr. Thornton-Kemsley) first sought an explanation as to why the minerals worked by the National Coal Board had not been brought within the ambit of these regulations. These regulations are made under Section 78 of the Scottish Act, and Section 78 (6) expressly excludes minerals which are vested in the National Coal Board. Since the Act itself expressly...

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...
