Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Schedule (2 Dec 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Gentleman knows full well that this is one of the Parliamentary expedients of raising a question and is the only method by which this question can be raised. I pointed out that we employed that expedient because we think the Act should be extended.

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Schedule (2 Dec 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Before we pass from this Bill, I think we should consider the circumstances in which these Acts are being perpetuated for another year. Manifestly the expedient of continuing an Act from year to year by virtue of the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill is one which should only be resorted to in exceptional circumstances. One notes with a certain amount of apprehension that an Act as early as 1919...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Fire Outbreaks, Ballingry (25 Nov 1952)

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Rent Tribunals (25 Nov 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Is the Joint Under-Secretary of State satisfied that the people of Scotland are sufficiently aware of their right of recourse to these tribunals?

Orders of the Day — Forth Road Bridge (17 Nov 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Gentleman has been good enough to inform the House of the major projects in the various parts of the country. The Government must have a certain order of priority. How does the Forth bridge road stand in the order of priority?

Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for the Provision, Otherwise than by Local Authorities, of Housing Accommodation for the Agricultural Population.) (15 Oct 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I am afraid that we have had nothing like a satisfactory answer from the Secretary or State for Scotlanad. Indeed, I think he has confused the arguments which have been presented to the Committee. He advanced, I think, two reasons to justify the introduction of this expression into this Clause. The first was to pray in aid the introduction of a similar expression in the Housing (Agricultural...

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: No.

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Gentleman is raising a very important point. Am I to understand that he is proposing that this new railway authority in Scotland will have power to fix its own charges in relation to Scotland, because that was the impression created by his statement?

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Then may we take it that this authority will not have the power to frame charges in relation to Scottish transport?

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, but I do so because I want to find out some information about the White Paper. The hon. Gentleman said that he did not know what the answer was. I find in the White Paper on Transport issued by Her Majesty's Government the following sentence: Any areas will together continue to constitute a single entity for financial purposes and for the control of...

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Gentleman has made a very serious accusation in suggesting that the facts and figures in the Report have been so fashioned as to give an entirely misleading effect; in other words, that they are "cooked" figures and that they were so represented, or misrepresented, for propaganda purposes. Will the hon. Gentleman state categorically whether he is accusing the Transport Commission of...

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Further to that point of order. The position is that my hon. Friend is not dealing with the contents of a Bill. The Joint Under-Secretary of State made an important statement on the functions of the authority which is to be set up. That important statement having been made, it would be unfortunate if other hon. Members were not entitled to speak on it.

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I think that the Opposition have shown a great deal of wisdom in choosing, on one of their traditional Supply Days on the Floor of the House, to debate the subject of Scottish transport. I think that the debate today is both well-chosen and well-timed. My only regret is that Government business has been such that both at the beginning and the end of the debate the normal time has been...

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Gentleman then proceeded to try to demonstrate that they were neither.

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The record will be there. One can ask a rhetorical question, and that was certainly a rhetorical question. But the hon. Gentleman did not relate it to the existing problem of how the services compare with the former services and with alternative services. He talked about the morass and difficulties into which transport in Scotland had got but did not explain what the morass and the...

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: —and then admitted that since coming into office and being charged with the administration he had been fully converted and had seen the light.

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The record will be there. In any event, the hon. Gentleman pleaded guilty to a conversion and I was hoping that that conversion would have been translated into this realm as well, since he is now saddled with the responsibility in part for this administration. But instead of that the hon. Gentleman trundled out vague and general criticisms unsupported by any evidence. I know it would be...
