Agriculture Bill: Interpretation of Part Iii (7 Apr 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I also welcome the Amendment to the smallholdings part of the Bill. As has been said, there was a lengthy discussion in Committee on the whole policy of the Government's smallholding plan. Many hon. Members on both sides felt strongly that the matter of the organisation of the smallholdings was best left to the smallholdings committees. Indeed, I stressed this point. However, my right hon....

Agriculture Bill: Agricultural Tied Cottages (7 Apr 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for calling me now——

Agriculture Bill: Agricultural Tied Cottages (7 Apr 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: On a point of order. I was on my feet before the Minister rose.

Agriculture Bill: Agricultural Tied Cottages (7 Apr 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: My hon. Friend said that we were not against the tied cottage system. That is not true. My hon. Friend knows that we have said that we do not want to see the cottages pulled down or anything like that. Our policy—and it is the policy of the Labour Government and of the T.U.C.—is that suitable alternative accommodation should be provided before any farm worker is ejected from his farm....

Agriculture Bill: Agricultural Tied Cottages (7 Apr 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: May I first express my appreciation of the decision of my hon. Friend the Member for Epping (Mr. Newens) and his colleagues to put forward Amendments on this subject? I understand that only one Amendment is being taken, but it provides the opportunity to discuss the whole issue. I entirely dispute the view of the hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West (Mr. Hawkins) that the issue of the tied...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill: Farm Capital Grants (24 Mar 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I think that the House generally and agriculture will welcome the reintroduction of the Clause. I am not unmindful of the fact that when it first came up for discussion in the Committee members of the Committee received a "cyclo" from the National Farmers' Union. That is not unusual. I do not think that there is any body more ardent in the supplying of Members of Parliament with cyclos than...

New Clause 4: Eradication of Brucellosis (24 Mar 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on making funds available for the eradication of brucellosis. The financial inducements set out in the Price Review will be helpful. I agree with the hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West (Mr. Hawkins) that Norfolk is one of the best areas for experimentation in the eradication of this disease, for the reasons that he mentioned. The number of cow herds in the...

New Clause 4: Eradication of Brucellosis (24 Mar 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: No, I will not give way. I intend to make only a few brief remarks. I congratulate my right hon. Friend on making provision in the Price Review as the first step towards the eradication of a disease about which everyone engaged in agriculture is concerned and wants to see removed as soon as possible. I hope that the industry will take advantage of the opportunities now afforded by the...

New Clause 4: Eradication of Brucellosis (24 Mar 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: But that is not contained in the official policy of the Opposition, whereas my right hon. Friend is making definite allowances for the purpose of eradicating the disease.

Annual Farm Price Review (18 Mar 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on announcing what I regard as a fair Price Review. I am speaking for the industry, not the N.F.U. May I ask my right hon. Friend whether, in determining labour costs, which are set out in the White Paper on the guaranteed products being increased by £20 million, he has taken into account that this is based on the present labour force, not that which it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Food Prices (11 Mar 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: Can my hon. Friend tell me by how much food prices would rise if the policies of the Opposition were carried out?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Brucellosis (11 Feb 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: As the disease has become substantially a reducing factor in East Anglia, could not my hon. Friend press his right hon. Friend to start an earlier pilot scheme in East Anglia?

Orders of the Day — Mental Hospitals (11 Feb 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I am vice-chairman of a regional hospital board and I am aware of the advice my right hon. Friend has given to the boards about the movement of resources. Would not he agree that the boards have been placed in some difficulty in that, again on the advice of his Department, they have had to introduce new services and techniques which have been very costly in themselves and that it becomes...

Orders of the Day — Mental Hospitals (11 Feb 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: It is true that we cannot allocate State moneys for the purpose mentioned by the hon. Gentleman, but most mental hospitals have endowment funds, with certain moneys available for these purposes, and they try to assist patients who go out into society and need equipment of the kind referred to by the hon. Gentleman.

Orders of the Day — Mental Hospitals (11 Feb 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: Could my right hon. Friend add—

Orders of the Day — Mental Hospitals (11 Feb 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I have been associated with a regional hospital board and hospital management committees since the 1948 Act came into operation. I therefore have a fair amount of experience in the administration of hospitals; and I should not like the impression to go out from the House that until comparatively recently little was done about improving mental hospitals. When I became associated with...

Orders of the Day — ANIMALS BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: I have very much in mind the suggestion by Mr. Speaker that because of the late hour speeches should be brief. Before I entered this House I was a full-time trade union officer. One of my duties was not only to deal with accidents arising out of and in the course of employment, but accident cases under the common law. Because of the nature of the membership of my union throughout the rural...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (26 Jan 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: Does not the policy put forward by the Opposition about fallback prices set a substantially lower level than the present guaranteed prices about which they are shouting so much?

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (26 Jan 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: Like some other hon. Members who have spoken, I am somewhat surprised that we should be having a debate on agriculture at this time. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why?"] Give me a chance. It is because my right hon. Friend's hands are somewhat tied in view of the negotiations which are about to start. One would imagine from some of the arguments put forward in the debate that we never debated agriculture...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (26 Jan 1970)

Mr Bertie Hazell: That is another matter. We give more attention to discussing problems concerning agriculture than problems concerning any other industry. It is not correct to say that it is advisable to have this debate at this particular time to convince this Government of the necessity of maintaining a healthy and prosperous agricultural industry. The Government are fully conscious of the position of the...
