Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Mar 1950)

Major Frederick Wise: I am glad to have this opportunity to intervene in this Debate and to follow the hon. and gallant Member for Ludlow (Lieut.-Colonel Corbett). I want to take up the hon. and gallant Member on one or two of his points, and I am quite certain, as we are old friends, he will know that I do so in a kindly way. I want to call the attention of the Opposition to the fact that in a section of Norfolk,...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Mar 1950)

Major Frederick Wise: They were all built for private occupation. I will now turn to another matter in the speech of the right hon. Gentleman which I deplored. He spoke about the shortage of bread grains and linseed. He was really condemning his own people, the farmers. There was a request from the Government that we should increase these acreages, and to say that such has not been the case is a criticism of...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Mar 1950)

Major Frederick Wise: That is not the case. I have argued before in the House that the price of wheat should go up and be married to the price of barley. That has happened, and there has been an incentive to grow wheat and linseed. That is because a reasonable price has been fixed. I should also like to say a few kindly words to the Minister. It is obvious from the experiences of the last few weeks that we have...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Mar 1950)

Major Frederick Wise: I will leave that to the Minister. This horticulturist told me that, so far as he understood the position, the scheme had died a natural death, but it is likely to be revived and if the horticulturists are to operate it, it is all to the good. I am certain the Government will support them. I should like to mention the question of smallholdings and allotments. In my division and in other...

Farm Workers' Rations (3 Jun 1949)

Major Frederick Wise: It is perhaps a curious coincidence that following the speech of the hon. Member for Windsor (Mr. Mott-Radclyffe), in whose division Windsor Castle is situated, I, in whose division Sandringham is situated, should also take part in this Debate. I know that the hon. Member opposite is aware of the difficulties with which we are faced in the northern part of Norfolk, and I must tell my right...

Farm Workers' Rations (3 Jun 1949)

Major Frederick Wise: Would my right hon. Friend say that the Women's Land Army in their hostels, and in all hostels get the same ration?

Sugar Beet Pulp (Price) (3 Jun 1949)

Major Frederick Wise: I wish to support my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Norfolk (Mr. Dye) in the case he has made. We in Norfolk are extremely perturbed about this matter. A moment ago I was pleading for the farm workers and now I wish to plead for Norfolk farmers. We produce an enormous quantity of sugar beet and it seems extraordinary that we who are engaged in farming should be asked to pay twice as...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (9 Feb 1949)

Major Frederick Wise: I am rather sorry that the hon. Member for Newbury (Mr. Hurd) is not in his place at the moment, because of all the dismal speeches on agriculture in general that I have ever heard, his was about the worst. I would say right away to the Opposition that if they disagree with any Clauses in this Bill let them suggest that those Clauses should be withdrawn. This is a small Bill, but a very...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill (19 Jan 1949)

Major Frederick Wise: Would the hon. Member agree that it would be good to have that individual on the board as one of the members?

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill (19 Jan 1949)

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (1 Nov 1948)

Major Frederick Wise: As a countryman, I am very pleased indeed to follow the hon. and gallant Member for Richmond (Sir T. Dugdale), and I want to say at once that there is very considerable agreement among the countrymen on this side of the House and those on the other side with his latter remarks. I want the Minister of Food to take particular note of the question of farm-workers' rations and feedingstuffs as...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (1 Nov 1948)

Major Frederick Wise: I do not know, but that we have at that end of Norfolk the largest farms in Britain and some of the finest small farms there is no doubt whatsoever. It is on the question of the market gardens that I want to speak. I hope that at long last the Government will be able to bring in some Measure to help the market gardeners with their products. Let me quote an example of the sort of thing that...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (1 Nov 1948)

Major Frederick Wise: A market in Yorkshire. I believe that that sort of thing happens everywhere. I am asked to name the market. The market was Hull. In the same way, I believe, Brussels sprouts are being sent from British farms to obtain 6d. a bag, but are being sold to the housewives at 6d. a lb. New marketing arrangements for our vegetable products are overdue. I am pleased indeed to see that at any rate that...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (1 Nov 1948)

Major Frederick Wise: Yes. We are advancing our methods and working with a will. In another field close to where I live, I had the happy experience during the harvest of seeing no fewer than seven combines at work in one field, a thing which before this year was almost unheard of on any British farm. That is "going some"; that is getting on with the job. I can assure the Government that if they will tie up these...

Oral Answers to Questions — Shrimping Industry, King's Lynn (15 Mar 1948)

Major Frederick Wise: asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that many of the shrimp fishermen of King's Lynn area have not gone out to sea during the last few weeks owing to the importation of foreign shrimps; that the shrimping industry in that area is seriously declining and will he look into the position with a view to taking adequate steps to ensure that the British shrimping industry does not cease...
