National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The point is, Mr. Speaker, that the right hon. Gentleman justified up to five o'clock as being sufficient to cover the remaining Amendments to the Clause and the Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill." In order that the House may reach a proper judgment of the right hon. Gentleman's proposition, I want to find out whether we shall have a one-and-a-half hour discussion, as would...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The right hon. Gentleman has no right to evade the issue in that manner. I prefaced my remarks by saying that we normally have the business questions. Whether they will take some time, or only some little time, is beside the point. I addressed a definite point relating to the agricultural price review and the right hon. Gentleman must know if that statement is to be made. He knows if the...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: This is not a waste of time. This is trying to secure for the House the courtesy, to which it is entitled. I do not know whether the Prime Minister knows if there is to be a statement tomorrow. The Patronage Secretary or the Leader of the House do not know. Perhaps the Prime Minister knows. Would the right hon. Gentleman care to give us the benefit of his knowledge or must we ask the Minister...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: That merely emphasises the force of our argument that all this should have been referred to a business committee in order to get the time-table properly worked out. However, I insist on the point. The Prime Minister says that there may be a business statement and a statement on agricultural prices. This is Wednesday night. The statements are due to be made tomorrow. The right hon. Gentleman...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The right hon. Gentleman need not lose his temper over this.

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I accept your rebuke, Mr. Speaker, but would observe that there is no danger of becoming repetitive if one sits down, and that that seems to be the position of the Government at this stage. What I am particularly concerned about is this. If this is a penal or reprisal Motion, not because of what has taken place on the prior stages of the Bill but because of some statement alleged to have...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Did the right hon. Gentleman say, "Just get on"? Surely, if I am being subjected to interruptions by the right hon. Gentleman I am entitled to ask him what the interruptions are, because with the greatest respect—

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: May I assure you, Mr. Speaker, that the Prime Minister did make an intervention? He passed a remark to me which I did not catch, and I asked him to repeat it, because I always pay a great deal of attention and attach a great deal of weight to what the right hon. Gentleman says. Perhaps he would care to repeat it now? If the position be, then, that one day under this time-table cannot...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: As I understand the right hon. Gentleman's statement, had he been satisfied that he would not have been embarrassed by accepting the Amendment, he would have been prepared to do so, and one of his difficulties was that he did not have legal advice from one of the Law Officers regarding the matter. If that is the position, and I think I am interpreting him correctly, may I remind him that...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: May I, with your permission Mr. Speaker, ask leave of the House to make an alteration? The Amendment which you have called is to leave out lines 60 to 62, but I think you have received notice that this is wrong. The Amendment we intend to move is to leave out lines 63 to 64. I would respectfully ask leave to make that formal Amendment here and now.

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: With respect, Mr. Speaker, there were two manuscript Amendments and that to which I think you were referring was to delete paragraph (f). That you are not selecting, but I gathered the one you called in the name of my right hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham, South, was to leave out lines 60 to 62.

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The Amendment to which reference was made, and to which your attention, Mr. Speaker, was drawn as a result of this mistake, was to leave out lines 63 and 64, the effect of which would have been to delete paragraph (h) of the Motion.

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I was trying to confirm what notice of Motion was given, and I have learned from my hon. Friends that notice was given very early yesterday; much more than 12 hours ago. Accordingly, I think that if it has not reached you, it must have been delayed somewhere along unusual channels. But the purpose of the Amendment was, in effect, to delete paragraph (h) of the original Motion on the Order...

National Health Service Bill (Time-Table) (23 Apr 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: No, Mr. Speaker, I do not intend to move the other Amendment because that is not the one we intended moving. We wanted to move the one which you decided you could not call. I think it is desirable for the record that it should be stated that you now confirm that the alteration was put in, but that you have not selected it.

Orders of the Day — Intestates' Estates Bill (28 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I am sure that the hon. and gallant Member does not wish to mislead the House, but even in Scotland the widow has a prior claim to the first £500 of an estate, as it is £1,000 in England. Is he also aware that I asked the Mackintosh Committee to report on the law of succession in Scotland and that they did so and made recommendations, which, if not so sweeping as those contained in the...

Orders of the Day — Intestates' Estates Bill (28 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I do not understand this line of argument from the hon. and gallant Member. A few minutes ago he was extolling the virtues of the Scottish system as compared with the English system. Is he aware that in Scotland there is no life interest paid to a surviving spouse? As he previously said, the spouse gets a capital proportion of the estate of the deceased.

Orders of the Day — Intestates' Estates Bill (28 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Yes, I know.

Orders of the Day — Intestates' Estates Bill (28 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Does not the hon. and gallant Gentleman appreciate that what he is objecting to is an English widow having the right to do what, in Scotland, is done under the existing law, namely, get a capital sum?

Orders of the Day — Intestates' Estates Bill (28 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: indicated dissent.

Orders of the Day — Intestates' Estates Bill (28 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Females may have certain interests in land in Scotland on intestacy and a widow at the present time has a life interest in heritable property which otherwise devolves to the heir at law.
