"sun" Newspaper (16 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 9, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, the announcement by the International Printing Corporation of the proposed closure on 1st January. 1970, of the Sun newspaper". [Laughter.] I am sorry that any right hon. or hon. Members should laugh...

"sun" Newspaper (16 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: They are based, Mr. Speaker, on the immediate prospect that, w thin 100 days, which makes the matter urgent, we are to lose a national newspaper with a circulation of 1 million and employing about 2,000 people of many unions, including my own, the National Union of Journalists, and at least six or seven of the other national unions covering the printing industry. Again, to bring in a point...

HOUSE OF COMMONS (REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS) (No. 2) BILL (15 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: A salient fact running through all our debates on the Bill is that we have not had any real argument from right hon. and hon. Gentlemen opposite. We have had a lot of words, "sordid", "cheat", "fraudulent", "chicanery", "gerrymander", "sham", "tricksters", and "nincompoop". We have also seen that gamblers 's instinct of the right hon. and learned Member for St. Marylebone (Mr. Hogg), who...

HOUSE OF COMMONS (REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS) (No. 2) BILL (15 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: As usual, the right hon. and learned Gentleman speaks only for himself. He used his great knowledge of Robert Louis Stevenson and has referred frequently to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I feel that he resembles another character from Robert Louis Stevenson in that he is a bit like Ben Gunn, marooned on his little island, perhaps waiting for something to turn up, and runing when he sees real...

HOUSE OF COMMONS (REDISTRIBUTION OF SEATS) (No. 2) BILL (15 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: I hope that I have not strayed too far. But I think that it needed saying. I apologise for straying a little. With the Redcliffe-Maud proposals and the great changes that will take place in local government reorganisation within the next three or four years, it is absolutely necessary that these should run in line with changes in Parliamentary boundaries. Representing a constituency which...

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: Some of the points which have been made by the hon. Member for Gloucestershire, South (Mr. Corfield) ought not to go unchallenged. My hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Well-beloved) made the very good and very true point—as he always does—that the Herbert Commission reported in 1961 and that then the Conservative Party got its Bill in 1963 and rushed it through the House...

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: They would have been interesting only because the right hon. Gentleman was involved—for no other reason.

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: I am sorry, Sir Barnett, to have caused you points of order in such profusion, but I think that you have ruled quite rightly. The hon. Member for Gloucestershire, South (Mr. Corfield) went into great detail about the merits of the London Government Act—

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: We must talk about the timing, and my hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Crayford was drawing an analogy with the present situation. The Home Secretary has given an assurance that there could be a rejigging of the Parliamentary boundaries, subject to the Redcliffe-Maud Report. After the Bill has been passed, my right hon. Friend should consider the possibility almost of a running Boundary...

Clause 1: Suspension of Redistributions Till Next General Reports of Boundary Commissions, and Acceleration of Those Reports (14 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: As I have said, my hon. Friend makes some very good points, and he has just made another one which adds to the reasons why the Amendment should be rejected.

Bill Presented: HOUSE OF COMMONS REDISTRI BUTION OF SEATS (No. 2) BILL (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: On a point of order. Yesterday, we had points of order interrupted by debate. May I ask for your guidance, Mr. Speaker, in ascertaining which way this debate is likely to go today? Last evening, when the Leader—

Bill Presented: HOUSE OF COMMONS REDISTRI BUTION OF SEATS (No. 2) BILL (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: I had not reached my point of order, Mr. Speaker. I proposed to ask you how far this debate will range, because the Leader of the Opposition ranged over Rhodesia and Ulster—

Mr Albert Murray: He is lucky to find one.

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: This is an interesting argument, but how does that save money if we just pick a different time of year to have asparagus? Surely that is not Vale of saving dollars?

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: It sounds longer.

Orders of the Day — GREATER LONDON COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL (By Order) (19 Jun 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: We have heard an interesting argument from the other side of the House which seems to suggest that the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi) does not want the G.L.C. to get the Bill. He has introduced many doctrinaire Conservative policies, particularly on rents, and has adduced the peculiar argument that if there are bad landlords charging unfair rents the G.L.C. should do the same. He...

Orders of the Day — GREATER LONDON COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL (By Order) (19 Jun 1969)

Mr Albert Murray: The hon. Gentleman has picked from the air the arbitrary figure of 70 per cent. Would the fact that an independent rent officer has lowered the rent, as has happened, justify a reduction in G.L.C. rents? It is completely unfair for the hon. Gentleman to snatch this arbitrary figure of 70 per cent. from the air and say that is a case for the G.L.C. to put up rents. During the campaign before...
