Oral Answers to Questions — North-East: Lord President of the Council (Visits) (13 May 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: This is a complete avoidance of answering the Question. Is not the hon. Gentleman aware that I am asking what plans there are for the North-East? I am sure that on reflection he must agree that this Answer is disgraceful. We want more information. Is the hon.

Mr Charles Grey: But it is now more than three months since the Minister visited the North-East, and his visit added to the list of many visits which other Ministers have made.

Prisons, England and Wales (20 Mar 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: I hope that the hon. and learned Member for Billericay (Mr. Gardner) will forgive me if I do not follow him into that subject.

Prisons, England and Wales (20 Mar 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: My hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, South-East (Miss Bacon) has already widened the scope of the debate. We are here concerned with the recruitment of prison officers. If this kind of thing is to be said about prison officers, how are we to recruit them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: State House, Holborn (5 Mar 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: Is it not outrageous that this amount of money should be paid out in rent? Is it not a fact that, after 28 years, when the lease expires, the taxpayer will have coughed up more than £8½ million and not bought a brick? Does the Minister realise that, if he were to make inquiries in the North-East, he would find that a building could have been erected for less than half that amount? Why...
