Orders of the Day — Judicial Offices (Salaries, &C.) Bill: Clause 2. — (Lords Commissioners of Justiciary (Circuit Allowances).) (19 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: On a point of order. There is an Amendment in my name in relation to Clause 2, the purpose of which is to have the additional emoluments granted under the Clause to the Scottish judges antedated to the date at which the increased emoluments of the English and Northern Ireland judges take effect. It seems fair and equitable that that should be done and I should like to know for what reason the...

Orders of the Day — Judicial Offices (Salaries, &C.) Bill: Clause 2. — (Lords Commissioners of Justiciary (Circuit Allowances).) (19 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I am obliged to you, Sir Charles, for the explanation. It only makes it all the more regrettable that the Money Resolution was drawn in its present form, to which I objected.

Orders of the Day — Judicial Offices (Salaries, &C.) Bill: Clause 2. — (Lords Commissioners of Justiciary (Circuit Allowances).) (19 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: On a point of order. Is it right to suggest that an allowance for whisky is given to Scottish judges? I thought it was a rule of the House not to allow murmuring of judges.

Orders of the Day — Judicial Offices (Salaries, &C.) Bill: Clause 2. — (Lords Commissioners of Justiciary (Circuit Allowances).) (19 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I think it is desirable that I should say a word in view of the discussion that has taken place, because, in my opinion, this is a proposal that is fully justified and of which I personally fully approve. When the salaries of the Lords Commissioners of Justiciary, the Judges of the Court of Session, were consolidated by the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act, 1887, it was specifically...

Orders of the Day — Judicial Offices (Salaries, &C.) Bill: Clause 3. — (Sheriffs-Substitute (Travelling Allowances).) (19 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I rise to speak on this Clause with a view to submitting a point which arises on an Amendment I had put down, but which has not been called—in page 3, line 20, at the end to insert: (2) The foregoing provisions of this section shall have effect as from the first day of July, nineteen hundred and fifty-one. At the earlier stages of the Bill I queried the necessity for this Clause at all,...

Orders of the Day — JUDICIAL OFFICES (SALARIES, &c.), BILL (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: We have had a very full and interesting debate, but I do not think that we need apologise for taking up the time of the House on this subject in view of the very important part which those to whom the Bill relates play in our civic life. My one observation on this point is that when the Bill reaches the Statute Book, I trust that the increases in emoluments will not pursue the same course as...

Orders of the Day — JUDICIAL OFFICES (SALARIES, &c.), BILL (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: It is an advantage which the hon. Gentleman has with me and which I have not got with him. Turning now to another matter which is not actually within the ambit of the Bill, but which is dealt with in the Financial Memorandum, namely the increases in salary to the Chairman of the Land Court, the full-time sheriffs and the sheriffs-substitute, again I wish to raise a question to which I think...

Orders of the Day — JUDICIAL OFFICES (SALARIES, &c.), BILL (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: I should have said "the outlying parts of Scotland" I hope that will be corrected in the OFFICIAL REPORT. They do not have sufficient work in the outlying parts to occupy their time as fully as it might be occupied. It is a great problem, and I know that it would be very much welcomed by these sheriffs-substitute themselves if some scheme could be devised to give them more work to do. One of...

Orders of the Day — JUDICIAL OFFICES (SALARIES, &c.), BILL (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: May I intervene before the hon. and learned Gentleman starts to develop his point? He has been good enough to say that some of the points which I raised might be more conveniently dealt with on the Committee stage. Will he give an undertaking that the Financial Resolution will be so drawn as not to exclude any of these points on the Committee stage?

Orders of the Day — JUDICIAL OFFICES (SALARIES, &c.), BILL (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: The Solicitor-General was good enough to give me an assurance that the increases relating to Scottish judges covered by the Bill and the Money Resolution, would be ante-dated to 1st July, 1951. I asked him about the position of the members of the Land Court, but he did not deal with that. Could he give me an answer on that point?

Orders of the Day — JuDICIAL OFFICES SALARIES, amp;c.) [MONEY] (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: I gave notice that I would raise this point at this stage. As the Financial Resolution is drawn, provision is made for the ante-dating of the increases in salaries to the English and Irish judges to 1st July, 1951, but no provision is made for the ante-dating of the travelling allowances under Clause 3 and the circuit allowances under Clause 2 to the Scottish judges. I indicated in my speech...

Orders of the Day — JuDICIAL OFFICES SALARIES, amp;c.) [MONEY] (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: I only rise because of a remark passed by the Lord Advocate, who said that part of the purpose of my speech was merely to indicate how much better the late Government would have done this particular piece of business than the present Government. Nothing was further from my thoughts.

Orders of the Day — JuDICIAL OFFICES SALARIES, amp;c.) [MONEY] (5 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: That is even worse, if I may say so, because, what happened when the negotiations were entered into was that I did give an undertaking that the increases would be dated as from the same date as the increase to the English and Irish judges. I quite frankly admit that the question of ante-dating these particular allowances and expenses was not raised at all, but there was a general undertaking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Retired Teachers (Pensions) (4 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: Pending such review, will the right hon. Gentleman consider with his English colleagues the possibility of paying these pensions monthly instead of quarterly as the quarterly payment is causing a great deal of economic hardship at the present time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Edinburgh (4 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: In view of the Government's undertaking that, under the new housing policy, there will be as many houses available to let as heretofore, will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to ensure that local authorities, such as Edinburgh, which have not built up to their full allocations in the past, will complete their full allocations of houses to let before they grant any licences for houses for sale?

Housing (4 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: On a point of order. For my guidance, and for the guidance of my hon. Friends may I ask you, Sir, whether this debate is confined to English housing, or whether it also extends to Scottish housing? It is now 20 minutes past eight and no Scottish Member has as yet been called. I am wondering whether this debate is circumscribed and is confined only to English housing. Could you give me a...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Numbers of Parliamentary Under-Secretaries.) (3 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: Further to your Ruling, Sir Charles, in which you have, if I may respectfully say so, properly defined the powers and limitations of a Clause stand part debate, the point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Hamilton (Mr. T. Fraser) is that, in the Clause as it stands, provision is made for the appointment of three Under-Secretaries to the Scottish Office, and that what the Committee has...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Numbers of Parliamentary Under-Secretaries.) (3 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: I put this question to the right hon. and gallant Member for Kelvingrove (Lieut.-Colonel Elliot). The hon. and gallant Gentleman says that the housing position is worse in Scotland after six years of Socialist administration. Can he deny that more houses were built in Scotland during the past six years—

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Numbers of Parliamentary Under-Secretaries.) (3 Dec 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: Does the right hon. Gentleman's present statement mean that if and when the new Under-Secretary is appointed he will be the person with the responsibility for education and that the Minister of State will step out of the education picture?

Clause 1. — (Establishment and Status of Home Guard.) (27 Nov 1951)

Mr John Wheatley: Further to the point raised by my right hon. Friend and your reply that your action was automatic under Standing Order 22, may I respectfully refer you to the Standing Order which says, when the circumstances, have been reported by the Chairman to the Speaker, and a Motion is being made: Mr. Speaker shall, on a Motion being made, [thereupon] put the same question, no amendment, adjournment...
