Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: Tower of London (Son et Lumière) (5 Mar 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this announcement was made in the Press last week? Does he think it fair that we as Members of the House of Commons should get a statement after a Press announcement? Is it fair that a firm which has done 95 per cent. of the work should be replaced by a Dutch firm?

Oral Answers to Questions — North-East: Lord President of the Council (Tour) (25 Feb 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science, as representing the Lord President of the Council (1) what conclusions the Lord President has reached as a result of his recent tour of the North-East; and what action he contemplates both in the short- and long-term; and (2) whether, following the further visit of the Lord President to the North-East, he has made a re-assessment of the needs of...

Oral Answers to Questions — North-East: Lord President of the Council (Tour) (25 Feb 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: Is that not a shallow answer which in actual fact means nothing at all? Is the hon. Gentleman aware that at the moment in the North-East the unemployment figure is more than 7 per cent., which is more than the figure for any other part of the country? Does this not demand immediate action? Will he ask the Lord President of the Council to demand that the President of the Board of Trade, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Durham (19 Feb 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the President of the Board of Trade, having regard to the fact that unemployment in the Durham Employment Exchange area is now 4·7 per cent., he will add this area to the list under the Local Employment Act, 1960.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Durham (19 Feb 1963)

Mr Charles Grey: That is a completely ridiculous answer to the sincere request contained in my Question. Will the Minister look at it again? The figure of unemployment is 4·7 per cent. Is he aware that under the Local Employment Act the average is 4 per cent. and that, therefore, the figure is 7 points above the percentage which qualifies under the Act? Will he give consideration instead of making complete...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: Contracts, North-East (18 Dec 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what contracts his Department has placed with North-East firms during 1961 and 1962 up to the latest available date.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: Contracts, North-East (18 Dec 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: Is the Minister aware that the orders which have been placed in the North-East have been far from adequate? Is he aware that the more orders his Department and any other Department place in the North-East, the better will be the opportunities for employment in those industries? Will he take note of the fact that we want more orders from his Department and other Departments?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: B.B.C. Wavelength, North-East (18 Dec 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Postmaster-General when the British Broadcasting Corporation expects to make the necessary change so that a wavelength can be made available exclusively for the North-East.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: B.B.C. Wavelength, North-East (18 Dec 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him if he is aware that this has been a long campaign, and that the decision to have our own wavelength makes complete nonsense of the 14 years we have been told time and again that it was impossible to have our own wavelength? May I assure the right hon. Gentleman that the decision to have our own wavelength has been widely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Disabled Trainees, Durham (Allowances) (12 Dec 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Minister of Labour why the increased allowances which have been granted to trainees at Government training centres have been refused for disabled trainees at the Finchall Abbey Training Centre for the Disabled, Durham.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Disabled Trainees, Durham (Allowances) (12 Dec 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him whether he does not think it outrageous that these people should not have been considered in the first place? We are dealing here with disabled persons who cannot have the facilities enjoyed by fit people. Will he bring their allowances up to the same level as those given to others who enjoy ordinary training facilities?

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: May I ask for some figures? A few weeks ago the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that an extra £70 million would be available for public works in the North-East. How much of that £70 million is for road works?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (20 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: I hope that the hon. Member for Cardiff, North (Mr. Box) will forgive me if I do not follow him. I will only comment on his presumption in suggesting that, because he visited one coal mine on one day, we, too, should visit one and get all the knowledge he gained. Many of us have worked in the coal mines for nearly thirty years, and know nearly all there is to know about the work. If the hon....

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (20 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: The hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro) has had his fun and we do not want any more laughter when we are discussing a serious subject. It is not my intention to go into all the ramifications of the activities of the Coal Board, but there are one or two specific items which I should like to mention. I wish to pay tribute to the National Coal Board for all it has done. Tracing the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (20 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: It is for that reason that I am asking the Government to prepare a plan to show our needs, which they are not doing. Oil is coming in wholesale on a free-for-all basis. The hon. Member should ask his Government to produce a plan to show where oil fits in. To rely solely upon oil and to fasten our economy to it is dangerous in view of events in the Yemen and what may happen in the Middle...

Industrial Development, Sunderland (6 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: I am sure the House is grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey) for raising the important matter about putting Sunderland back on the list of those available for grants. We understand that we must wait until Thursday before we have a definite answer, but I must point out that the Parliamentary Secretary's reply to my hon. Friend will not be received with any...

Industrial Development, Sunderland (6 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: On that point, Mr. Speaker, I had a word with the Parliamentary Secretary about the points I was going to raise. I had that behind your Chair and I assumed from that that we were "O.K." to go on.

Industrial Development, Sunderland (6 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. I mentioned Scotland because obviously it is linked with the £70 million. I shall not labour that further. We have had a number of visits recently. The President of the Board of Trade has been to the North-East and more recently the Parliamentary Secretary. We had the Minister of Labour and also the predecessor of the Parliamentary Secretary. I think he...

Industrial Development, Sunderland (6 Nov 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: The Parliamentary Secretary shakes his head. But I have visited a furniture factory and I know that it is impossible for these factories to exist merely by making domestic furniture. They rely on Government contracts, and if more of such contracts could be placed in the North-East they would stimulate this industry. The workers in furnishing industry are highly skilled and if they leave the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Dryburn Hospital, Durham (30 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement on the progress made in the building of the new operating theatre at Dryburn Hospital, Durham.
