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

Mr Charles Grey: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the very serious conditions in Which the people are working in the Dryburn Hospital, and will he give an assurance that the work will be speeded up and completed within the next year or so?

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: I agree with the hon. Member for Sunderland. South (Mr. P. Williams) when he talks about the success story of the North-East. We on this side of the House say that its success is comparable with that of any other part of the country. But that is not what the debate is about. The debate is about the closure of coal mines and the general unemployment position in the area. It is to that that we...

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: It is a matter of mere reduction. One is "going west" and the other is "going east" at the next election, anyway.

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: I am sorry. I got the two constituencies wrong. I was referring to the two hon. Members. The North-East is often at a disadvantage compared with the rest of the country and that is especially so with unemployment figures, which are always higher than those of any other part of the country. That is why we have seized this opportunity to put our grievances before the House. But it would be...

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: No, but we must always bring pressure on the Government and that would be a better way than this. Four Ministers ought to be sitting on the Government Front Bench tonight— the President of the Board of Trade, who is not there, but whose Parliamentary Secretary is, the Minister of Labour, who is present, the Minister of Power, who is present and the Minister of Transport, who is not...

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: It means that the roads are deserted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Power Station (Durham) (16 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Minister of Power what estimate has been made by the Central Electricity Generating Board, and put to him, of when further consideration will be given to the building of a new power station in the county of Durham.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Power Station (Durham) (16 Jul 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: There is not much consolation in that. Why has Durham County been selected for such shabby treatment by the Central Electricity Generating Board? May we have the right hon. Gentleman's assurance that he will have further talks with the Chairman of the Central Electricity Generating Board and instruct him that there should be a power station built in Durham irrespective of what he thinks? If...

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: I entirely agree with the sentiments expressed in the latter part of the speech of the hon. Member for Hexham (Mr. Speir). Few, if any, hon. Members would disagree that the North-East, as an area, has to be projected properly. But I object to the first part of his speech. The hon. Member might even regret that he changed his mind and decided to fight the Hexham seat because, if he continues...

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: The Distribution of Industry Act. I said that I would deal with the Local Employment Act later. I intended to say that the distribution of industry policy being operated now is more unfairly balanced than at any time, compared even with pre-war days. I have no doubt that there have been one or two puny efforts made by the Government to put the situation right. One effort was the Local...

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: Perhaps the hon. Member will allow me to make my speech without interruption, since I allowed him to do so. Hon. Members opposite support the Government Front Bench in claiming that the Local Employment Act is a huge success.

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: If the Government and back bench Members opposite think that, I can show that there are thousands of people who think differently. At the moment, there are 45,000 people on the dole in the Northern Region. Will any one of them say that the Local Employment Act is a huge success? We all remember the great hullabaloo that there was when it was decided to introduce this Measure. It was said...

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: That is true, and I will prove it. I hope that when the Minister replies he will not try to prove how good the Local Employment Act has been in the North-East. It is deader than dead. The Parliamentary Secretary talked about the jobs in prospect. I believe he said that there were 35,000 jobs in prospect for England. Two or three weeks ago he was in Newcastle, where he said that there were...

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: That proves my point. If the President of the Board of Trade does not do something about this matter now, there may well be a good deal of unnecessary hardship and poverty. I know that we have not the massive unemployment which we had in the 1930s. But do the Government really believe that they make a success of things if they prevent them from getting as bad as they were in the 1930s? I do...

Distribution of Industry (26 Jun 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: What my hon. Friend says emphasises my point. If conditions in some parts are worse than they were in the 1930s, they must be bad. However, I do not believe that the North-East will ever get back to the conditions of the 1930s. The Government cannot pretend that this is a success story by claiming that conditions are better than they were in the 1930s, because we shall not return to those...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Medical Schools (Expansion) (24 May 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to receive the report of the University Grants Committee and the universities with medical schools concerning the expansion of medical schools during the next five years.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Medical Schools (Expansion) (24 May 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is greater urgency? May I ask whether he has given further consideration to the request which I made some time ago that as soon as Durham University is separated from Newcastle it should have its own medical faculty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: School Leavers (21 May 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the Minister of Labour how many children who left school at Christmas, in the employment exchange areas covered by the Durham constituency, are unemployed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: School Leavers (21 May 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that even though those figures may seem small they are still pretty important and are the largest we have had for some time? Does the hon. Gentleman not think it is shocking that young people should still be without a job five months after leaving school? What consultation has the hon. Gentleman had with the President of the Board of Trade to try to ensure that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Spennymoor (15 May 1962)

Mr Charles Grey: asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the continued rise in the number of persons unemployed in the Spennymoor exchange area; and what steps he is taking to improve the position.
