Local Government (Pecuniary Interests) Bill: Clause 1. — (Pecuniary Interests of Members.) (24 Jul 1964)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. Perhaps I should explain very briefly the sense of the Amendments to my Bill which were made in another place. The object of the of the Bill, as hon. Members will know, is to make it clear on the face of the Statute that pecuniary interests which are remote or insignificant are not covered by Sections 76 and 123...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Pecuniary Interests) Bill (26 Jun 1964)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. I think we are all agreed that this is a relatively modest but nevertheless important Bill, which has three important aims. The first is to clarify, for people working in local government, the effect on them of some legal provisions which are of many years' standing and which, by general consent, embody an important principle. The...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Pecuniary Interests) Bill (13 Mar 1964)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The fact that this Bill is coming up on Friday, 13th March, and that I have emerged this morning from hospital after treatment for an ulcer on my left eye—the sinister eye—has, I trust, no superstitious significance. The Bill seeks to amend certain provisions of the Local Government Act, 1933, and the similar provisions in the...

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Fees (31 May 1962)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That the Ecclesiastical Fees Measure, 1962, passed by the National Assembly of the Church of England, be presented to Her Majesty for Royal Assent in the form in which the said Measure was laid before Parliament. At the outset I should inform the House that this Measure was first considered by the Ecclesiastical Committee on 14th June, 1961. All the Clauses, with the exception...

Orders of the Day — Ecclesiastical Fees (31 May 1962)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I am glad that the hon. Member for Paddington, North (Mr. Parkin) agrees that the parson should be relieved of this burden of fees. It may be a little tardy but we have to go through a considerable process in our Church legislation, and now the Measure is nearly on the Statute Book. On the other hand, I am very sorry indeed that he referred to lawyers who advise the Church Commissioners as...

Gypsies (1 Dec 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I should like to make a brief intervention as Second Church Estates Commissioner, on behalf of the Church Commissioners, in respect of Darenth Woods, to which a number of references have been made, and I propose to confine my remarks to that. However, before coming to that point let me just say to the hon. Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Dodds) how much I appreciated his speech. We must...

Gypsies (1 Dec 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: —and in all the local newspapers—we were under the impression that there was some grave anxiety that some precipitate action might be taken. I therefore arranged for a message to be sent to the parish council yesterday saying that while the Commissioners had now no legal standing in this matter we would hope that no precipitate action would be taken. I was very interested to hear from the...

Church of England (National Assembly) (Measures) (31 Jul 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That the Baptismal Registers Measure, 1961, passed by the National Assembly of the Church of England, be presented to Her Majesty for Her Royal Assent in the form in which the said Measure was laid before Parliament. I am sure the House will not wish me to enter into a long explanation of this Measure, which is a trifle technical in character. Briefly, its object is to bring...

Church of England (National Assembly) (Measures) (31 Jul 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That the Clergy Pensions Measure, 1961, passed by the National Assembly of the Church of England, be presented to Her Majesty for Her Royal Assent in the form in which the said Measure was laid before Parliament. This is a rather longer Measure than the previous one which has just met with the favour of the House. It has been carefully considered by the Church Assembly. It was...

Church of England (National Assembly) (Measures) (31 Jul 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: By leave of the House; I thank the hon. Member for Barking (Mr. Driberg) for drawing attention to the voting figures. I also saw the letter in yesterday's issue of The Times. It contains a point of view which many of us can understand, but the subject was fully ventilated in the Church Assembly on 7th and 8th February—I have a copy of the proceedings in my hand and I was present throughout....

Sport (Wolfenden Committee's Report) (28 Apr 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: First. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dorset, North (Sir R. Glyn) on introducing the Motion and on speaking to it so clearly and ably. Secondly, I thank the hon. Member for Feltham (Mr. Hunter) for his kind reference to myself. Like the hon. Gentleman, I welcome back the hon. Member for Birmingham, Small Heath (Mr. Denis Howell). He has moved from Birmingham, All Saints to...

Sport (Wolfenden Committee's Report) (28 Apr 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: Neither of them is in the Cup Final. I am sure that all of us who are interested in sport welcome the Wolfenden Report. Our broad approach to it, like the approach of the authors of the Report to whom I tender my thanks for their Report, is that international sport of all kinds is very important. What is particularly in our minds is that the greatest possible facilities should be available...

Sport (Wolfenden Committee's Report) (28 Apr 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I am sure the hon. Gentleman will agree that our report was published first. We had no knowledge of what was coming in the rather more voluminous document published by the Labour Party.

Farnham Castle (30 Jan 1961)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I beg to move, That the Farnham Castle Measure, 1960, passed by the National Assembly of the Church of England, be presented to Her Majesty for Her Royal Assent in the form in which the said Measure was laid before Parliament. I feel that I should tell the House that this Measure was agreed to unanimously by the Ecclesiastical Committee on 23rd November, 1960. As hon. Members know, Farnham...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Sir Hubert Ashton: First, I should like to express my appreciation of the manner in which this Amendment has been moved by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Barking (Mr. Driberg) and seconded by my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesend (Mr. Kirk). This is an extension, as the hon. Member for Barking has said, of part of the debate we had on 25th February. I will, if I may, deal with the last part of his speech...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Sir Hubert Ashton: I personally do not believe, if I may continue the argument I am making, that the City authorities and the Bishop would ever act improperly in making a change of a ward church. On the other hand, normally I think that I would have asked the House to consider this Amendment as slightly superfluous and therefore to reject it. But I have been impressed. My position as the Second Church Estates...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Sir Hubert Ashton: No.

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Sir Hubert Ashton: It was agreed in principle. But I think that in considering it in this particular context he took the view which I have just expressed to the House.

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Sir Hubert Ashton: That has not been moved.

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Sir Hubert Ashton: This is an Amendment to Section 32 of the 1952 Act. They have the same powers under the Section to make a ward church. I think I am correct in saying that it was in agreement with the Aldermen and City Councillors that it was provided that they should have these powers of making representations.
