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

Mr John Wheatley: May I call your attention to the fact, Sir, that we are now dealing with the right of private Members, a right of the House which is very jealously protected both by the Chair and both sides of the House. According to custom we ballot three Bills for each private Members' day, and I submit that the theory is that each of these Bills should have an opportunity of being discussed during that...

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

Mr John Wheatley: If the hon. and learned Gentleman wishes to intervene I will certainly allow him to do so, but I will not allow him to take my place on the Floor.

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

Mr John Wheatley: I would have been quite willing to withdraw the suggestion I made, but it was rather obvious to us on this side that an S.O.S. was going out to bring people into the House to continue this debate. I do not want to get drawn along side-tracks, but the hon. and learned Gentleman has, by his last remark, removed from himself the right to receive any withdrawal. It was quite obvious that the hon....

Gentleman realise that when the Limitation Act was passed in 1939, the period of limitation was extended to 12 months in England but retained at six months in Scotland? The understanding was given at that time that the period would be extended to 12 months in Scotland, and will the hon. Gentleman look at this matter again pending general legislation on the whole question of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Vacant Houses (25 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: In view of the apparent reluctance of local authorities to take advantage of powers contained in the Housing Act to acquire these houses, will Her Majesty's Government give sympathetic consideration to a Private Member's Bill, standing in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Dunbartonshire, West (Mr. Steele)?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Scotland: Corporation Houses, Glasgow (Sale) (25 Mar 1952)

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Authorities Protection Act (24 Mar 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: May I ask the hon. and learned Gentleman three questions arising out of his answer? Does he realise that we are concerned in this connection with the atttitude of the present Government towards this legislation in view of the Report of the Tucker Committee? Secondly, does he not realise that some reform of the law in this direction is now necessary? Thirdly, if there is to be no immediate...

Orders of the Day — Licensed Premises in New Towns Bill (27 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: The hon. Gentleman has said that this was part of the Tory Party's Election policy in Scotland. Will he mention one Tory candidate in Scotland who, at the General Election, included in his Election address or campaign the denationalisation of these establishments?

Orders of the Day — Licensed Premises in New Towns Bill (27 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman would explain whether he was then a Liberal, an Independent Liberal, a National Liberal or a Tory candidate?

Bill Presented: Milk Prices (26 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: There is one aspect of the Order dealing with chocolate, sugar confectionery and cocoa products which has not been dealt with, and on which I think we should have some explanation. In that Order there is a new definition of the term "Chocolate couverture," and it would have been desirable had the House been informed as to the reason why the definition in the previous Order has been changed....

Bill Presented: Milk Prices (26 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: I am obliged for the Parliamentary Secretary's explanation but, as he is probably aware, these Orders apply to Scotland as well as to England. The dictum of the Lord Chief Justice is not binding on the Scottish Courts. We have rather a different procedure in Scotland in our criminal prosecutions. I would like to know if the test as to whether this would stand up to scrutiny in the Scottish...

Bill Presented: Milk Prices (26 Feb 1952)

Mr John Wheatley: In that case, we must await the test of time, if and when a case is raised in court. May I ask one question, and ascertain from the hon.
