Oral Answers to Questions — Transport Industries: National Freight Corporation (25 Nov 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply, but is he satisfied with the transfer of freight liner business from British Railways to the National Freight Corporation in view of the fact that this was one of British Railways most profitable businesses and an issue on which a former chairman of British Railways resigned? Further, will my right hon. Friend agree not to implement Section 48 of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government and Development: Gatwick Airport (River Mole Drainage System) (25 Nov 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: Is the Minister aware of the growing concern in my constituency about the recurrence of the disastrous floods of December, 1968? When such application comes before him, will he consult the Thames Conservancy on the question of this catchment area and the River Mole?

Essex University Students (Fire Brigade) (25 Nov 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: On a new point of order. The implications for fire brigades over the whole country are so serious, Mr. Speaker, that I ask you whether you would accept a submission—

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: East of Suez (26 Nov 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: In coming to a decision about the future of British Forces in the Persian Gulf, will my hon. Friend bear in mind the extra danger of abandoning these countries of the Gulf to their fate before they have come to an agreement on union? Will he also bear in mind the importance of the Sharjah training area to British Forces?

Airbuses (2 Dec 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I sympathise with my right hon. Friend on the dilemma in which he has been placed by the improvidence of the previous Government, but is he aware of the widespread dismay which will be caused in my constituency at Weybridge not only because the jobs of workers and of the design teams have been placed in jeopardy but because we firmly believe that Britain builds the best aircraft? Is my right...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (3 Dec 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I listened to the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Mr. Ogden) with great interest, especially when he was discussing the extension of nationalised industry. One big difference, surely, must be that in the case of a private company it is the investor's money that is at risk when firms diversify. In the case of public industry it is the taxpayer's money. The Report of the Select Committee...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation Supply: Concorde (9 Dec 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: Is my right hon. Friend aware that a viable British airframe industry is very much dependent on the Concorde project? Can he assure us that that will be borne in mind, as well as the commercial prospects and obligations to our partner?

Orders of the Day — Misuse of Drugs Bill: Controlled Drugs (9 Dec 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I wish briefly to raise two matters. The first concerns films. During a recent visit to the United States, I saw some horrifying films which encourage drug taking. They were pornographic, certainly. At the same time, they encourage drug taking in that they show, in Technicolor and in close-up, the act of intravenous injection, which prompts some people to experiment. Does Clause 1 empower the...

European Economic Community (16 Dec 1970)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that it is not only the financial commitment that is open-ended but also the political commitment, and that this is what causes many people a great deal of concern? Could he give the House any reassurance on this matter?

Orders of the Day — ARMED FORCES BILL [Lords] (13 Jan 1971)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: The hon. Gentleman the Member for Erith and Crayford (Mr. Wellbeloved) reminded us of the withdrawal of the rum ration by the last Government, and I agree with what he said. It was a somewhat mean and unnecessary act, and I regret that it was ever done. The hon. Gentleman spoke also about the availability of the Army Act and the other Acts to ordinary soldiers, sailors and airmen at the...

Orders of the Day — ARMED FORCES BILL [Lords] (13 Jan 1971)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I have noted that, but the opening words are "having been captured". The man I am referring to went over of his own volition, so I do not think that his case would be covered by that paragraph. However, I understand that he was eventually brought to book under the law prevailing at that time. I turn next to Clause 6, which specifically provides that looting is against the law. During the...

Defence (1 Mar 1971)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: rose—

Orders of the Day — Defence (2 Mar 1971)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I am glad to follow the hon. Gentleman in the many interesting and reasonable points he made and also my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford (Mr. Churchill) in what he said about the Persian Gulf and the fact that he believes options still to be largely open. I believe this to be so. The negotiations are not yet over; indeed my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary said he has the...

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: Will my hon. Friend give an assurance that the French aircraft industry has the capacity to deal with Concorde and the A300B without work on the Concorde project being held up?

Third London Airport (Roskill Commission Report) (4 Mar 1971)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I have the utmost sympathy for those people who are defending Foulness, and making a very brave show of it, because I live near London Airport and know exactly what this problem amounts to. I speak for the people who live round London Airport, and, in particular, for my constituents. The decision not to build a third London airport would be an absolute disaster for all those millions of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation Supply: Concorde (24 Mar 1971)

Lieut-Colonel David Mather: I thank my right hon. Friend for this reply. Is he aware of the increasing number of redundancies at the Weybridge division of B.A.C. in my constituency, amounting to an extra 500 last week, and the urgent need to get this project off the ground? Having flown across the Atlantic twice in a Jumbo jet, I am firmly convinced that this aircraft, the Concorde, has a great future.
