Post Office (Dispute) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the whole House and the country will be greatly relieved if a satisfactory result arises from these further negotiations? Will he bear in mind that perhaps the most important of the recommendations of the Armitage Committee was that negotiations could not be brought to a successful conclusion merely by depending on statistics? Is the right hon....

Transport (8 Jul 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: Mr. Arthur Holt (Bolton, West) rose—

Transport (8 Jul 1964)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Private Cars (Passengers) (1 Jul 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: asked the Minister of Transport whether he will introduce legislation amending the Road Traffic Act, 1960, to permit car owners who take passengers to work by car on an expense-sharing basis, to do so without having to obtain a licence as a public service vehicle.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Private Cars (Passengers) (1 Jul 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: Is not that a rather astonishing Answer? The hon. Gentleman must know that there are many people who take their neighbours to work on a paying basis. Is not this both good-neighbourly and commonsense? Is it not absurd that in so helping their neighbours they should be in fact breaking the law? Should not this be altered?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Private Cars (Passengers) (1 Jul 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: The Minister must be aware that there are many new firms which have started on the peripheries of towns where the bus services are quite inadequate to take workpeople from an area all around the works. Many of those people can get to work only by private transport.

Nationalisation (18 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: I am sure that the hon. Member for Torquay (Mr. F. M. Bennett) would not expect a reply to his speech from me. I do not suppose that he expects a reply from anybody. The House enjoyed his knockabout turn and I am sure that it was a great satisfaction to him and to his hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Knutsford (Sir W. Bromley-Davenport). I intervene, in what I think an entirely...

Nationalisation (18 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: No, I have not much time. The Tory Party, as I said earlier, with the Labour Party, appears to be taking a more pragmatic attitude to the question of ownership. Figures have been quoted today about subsidies given to nationalised industry and even larger subsidies and loans to private enterprise. A lot of that has been done under Tory Governments. We have seen a Tory Government set up the...

Nationalisation (18 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: The hon. Member will also know that I spoke in favour of the railway workshops being allowed to do exactly what I have been describing. I voted with the Opposition on the particular Amendments about the railway workshops. It is a great misfortune that when there are many more important matters to be argued, and argued openly on the hustings in the next few months, this old bogy should be...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Power to Obtatn Information as to Payments for Political Purposes.) (18 Jun 1964)

Foreign Affairs (16 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: The hon. Member is anticipating events a little fast.

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal: Smokeless Fuels (11 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: May I ask whether the Minister is aware that there is also concern in my constituency about the price of coke fuel? He said that the cost must reflect the cost of production, but would not he agree that coke is a by-product of another process and that the cost is an arbitrary figure? Is he aware that a while ago, when coke was not wanted, it was very cheap indeed? Is the Minister aware of any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal: Summer Prices (11 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: Further to the Answer the Parliamentary Secretary gave to a Question from the Opposition Front Bench when he said that he had not responsibility for the price of smokeless fuel, will he tell the House exactly what the responsibility of his Department is in regard to the successful carrying out of the Government's smokeless zone policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry, Trade and Regional Development: Morecambe Bay Barrage (11 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development if he will commission a firm of engineering consultants to carry out a preliminary technical and economic survey of proposals for a Morecambe Bay barrage, incorporating a road and rail link enclosing the estuaries of the Leven and Kent and the use of these waters for public supply and for cooling of locally-sited power...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry, Trade and Regional Development: Morecambe Bay Barrage (11 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that there is great interest in this plan? It might speed up a later decision if a preliminary technical examination was made of the proposals now? Is he aware that there was a report in the Guardian on 9th June that a firm of consultant engineers was interested in this? Can he tell us whether his Department had any contact with it? I understand that a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Recruiting Office, Holborn (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the estimated total annual cost to his Department of maintaining the naval recruiting office in State House, Holborn.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Recruiting Office, Holborn (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: Will the Minister say what portion of this staff is responsible for the mere 168 recruits which the centre has so far obtained? In view of the fact that the rent of this accommodation is £12,750 a year, does not it appear that there is a great deal of extravagance? Might not the Navy consider doing its recruiting rather more cheaply?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief from Duty on Heavy Oils Used as Fuel for Certain Hackney Carriages.) (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Arthur Holt: I am very glad to support what has been said by the hon. Member for Willesden, East (Mr. Skeet) and the hon. Member for Bradford, East (Mr. McLeavy). The new Clause No. 38 put down by my right hon. and hon. Friends and myself goes further than new Clause No. 19 to which the hon. Member for Willesden, East was speaking, but this whole series of new Clauses deals, in one way or another, with a...
