Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill (23 Nov 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: The hon. Member for Manchester, Blackley (Mr. Rose) has just delivered a wholehearted assault on his Government's efforts to extend the operation of the 1962 immigration Act, following, of course, the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Michael Foot), who started this attack in one of his always very entertaining but gloriously irrelevant speeches, to which I listened with enormous pleasure. I...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill (23 Nov 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I would prefer to turn it up in a dictionary. It does not seem in the sense in which it is used for immigrants to be very different. It has to be remembered that there are certain number of immigrant communities who do not wish to be integrated. There are Pakistanis in my constituency whom I know well who have no desire to be integrated. They want to remain Pakistanis. They think that their...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill (23 Nov 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I think that it does, but I am not sure that these communities are in any way prepared to accept it. It may by possible, but the time is not yet and it will take a very long time. The Government realise, quite rightly, that they have to do something practical in the interval. We have, if I may use a platitude myself, an overcrowded island and it is getting daily more overcrowded. Curiously...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill (23 Nov 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: That is a problem for Her Majesty's Government who, after all, are responsible for or getting the houses built. A point which I did not intend to make, because it is a party point, is that we are already falling short of the housing target, so that it will be very difficult to fulfil this condition and we shall be falling more and more short of that target as the years go by. The next...

Orders of the Day — Clause 16. — (Excluded Classes of Employees.) (21 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I am afraid that the hon. Gentleman's undertaking at the moment is extraordinarily similar to that given by the First Secretary of State on a previous occasion in this House, when he said that the Government would gladly look at anything—[Interruption.]—I cannot see that it is better than that. I find the Parliamentary Secretary's explanation singularly inadequate. I recognise that it is...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Clause 1. — (Discrimination in Places of Public Resort.) (16 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I think that the Home Secretary has made the intention of Parliament abundantly clear, and we are all grateful to him for doing so. Unquestionably, if any case of alleged racial discrimination comes before a court that court will have no difficulty whatsoever in deciding what Parliament intended at the time the Bill was passed. That is a great step forward, and a considerable protection to...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Clause 1. — (Discrimination in Places of Public Resort.) (16 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I shall not quarrel with my hon. Friend, who is learned in the law, and I am not, but I know of cases where courts have tried to interpret the intention of Parliament as laid down in an Act. That is what the Home Secretary has made quite clear, and I am saying that if the matter ever reaches a court, that court will be able to determine what Parliament intended. That is a good thing. But a...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Clause 1. — (Discrimination in Places of Public Resort.) (16 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: The hon. Member says that this is more likely. It may be more likely, but it is not certain—and in our legislation we ought to try to provide some certainty in these matters. The publican has enough difficulty with brewster sessions as it is. Anybody who is in the least likely to be really sympathetic to him is excluded from sitting on those sessions, so he has a very difficult case to...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Clause 1. — (Discrimination in Places of Public Resort.) (16 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: The hon. Member has made a very clear point, with which I largely agree. He says that it would be very difficult for the licensing magistrate to act on that evidence. Why not let us make it impossible, by providing that a complaint of racial discrimination which has been rejected by a conciliation committee shall not be taken into consideration by brewster sessions?

Orders of the Day — Control of Office and Industrial Development Bill: Clause 2. — (Exemption by Reference to Office Floor Space.) (15 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Reading (Mr. Peter Emery) that we are in sympathy with any effort to reduce office building in London, and to persuade people to move their offices outside this particular conurbation. Anyone who has the pleasure of watching the abundantly good relations which now exist between the management, employees and passengers in one of the major sections of...

Orders of the Day — Control of Office and Industrial Development Bill: Clause 2. — (Exemption by Reference to Office Floor Space.) (15 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I accept your Ruling, Mr. Speaker. But I hope that at least one of them will utter something in the course of this debate and that we may hear more from them in support of their Government than pathetic silence.

Orders of the Day — Control of Office and Industrial Development Bill: Clause 3. — (Retrospective Control in Metropolitan Region.) (15 Jul 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I think it possible to accept the hon. Gentleman's explanation. It could have been boiled down quite simply to saying that the Clause was formerly in English and is now in gobbledygook.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Gas and Electricity Industries (Finance) (25 May 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: Is the Minister telling the House that the ultimate purpose of the Government is to raise the price of gas to the level of that of electricity?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16 — (Amendments of Case Vii of Schedule D.) (24 May 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I have two questions to put to the Minister without Portfolio purely for the purpose of clarification. I understood him to say—I shall not tangle with him on questions of law, about which he knows more than I do—that a gift of cash would not attract this tax, and gifts of chattels would attract this tax. May we take that as official? Is that really the Government's view?

Ballot for Notices of Motions: New Clause. — (Purchase Notices.) (14 Apr 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I express my pleasure in seeing before us once again the dauntless three, Horatius, Herminius and Spurius Lartius, whom we faced so often in Committee upstairs. I wish that they had the same support behind them as their three predecessors had. Even upstairs they had that magnificent team whom we knew so affectionately as the "silent six", who sat behind them. They are today without any form...

Ballot for Notices of Motions: New Clause. — (Purchase Notices.) (14 Apr 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I am obliged to my hon. Friend. I accept what he says, but I cannot recall them all and I wish to devote a little thought to these two "Beecher's Brooks". The fact that they have overcome two hurdles only to find themselves faced with no possibility of compensation afterwards is likely to act as a deterrent, and may even be a check on office development. I know that the Government want to...

Ballot for Notices of Motions: New Clause. — (Factory Estates.) (14 Apr 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: The Board of Trade shall have power to grant industrial development certificates to approved developers for the building of factory estates in advance of their occupiers being known, and such conditions may be imposed thereon to ensure that the factories are occupied in accordance with such orders as the Board of Trade may issue—[Mr. Peter Emery.]

Ballot for Notices of Motions: New Clause. — (Factory Estates.) (14 Apr 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: The Minister of State seems to have correctly read my views about the new Clause. I congratulate him on his perspicacity. I will not reply in detail to the pure spirit of 1984 we got from the hon. Member for Burnley (Mr. Dan Jones)—because he went a little too far in general principles in his intervention. I gather that the Minister will advise my hon. Friends either to reject or to...

Ballot for Notices of Motions: New Clause. — (Factory Estates.) (14 Apr 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: Beyond that. I do not think that even Stalin ever thought of this—

Ballot for Notices of Motions: New Clause. — (Factory Estates.) (14 Apr 1965)

Mr Roy Wise: I rather fear that most legislation dealing with development districts came from our side of the House, and I regard it as revolting from whichever side it may come. But as far as I can see, the Board of Trade at present has this power only in respect of areas of more than 5,000 sq. ft. It is only now that we come down to the smallest area in which one could swing a cat—not that I have ever...
