White Fish and Herring Industries (14 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: I am sure that we are grateful to the Joint Under-Secretary for his very lucid exposition of the plans of the Government for loans and subsidies, but I must say that it was not a very convincing statement and that it will not satisfy many hon. Members on either side of the House. First, may I say that all hon. Members concerned with the interest of the fishing industry, certainly my right...

White Fish and Herring Industries (14 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: And Lowestoft.

White Fish and Herring Industries (14 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: I dealt with this point at some length in my speech. The request of the trawler owners who wish to buy new vessels is that they should negotiate a new loan, repaying the old one and getting the new loan at a lower rate of interest. I do not see anything immoral or difficult in that. It is a question of negotiation.

White Fish and Herring Industries (14 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: That is admitted, but will the right hon. Gentleman explain why he did not take the advice of the White Fish Authority, which was unanimous about it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Mentally Defective Children, West Midlands (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: Is the Minister aware that this need, particularly of young children, arises in nearly all the hospital areas? Will the Minister pay special attention to the problem, owing to the terrific stress imposed on parents, especially when a child is growing up into adolescence and into adult life?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Midwives, East Suffolk (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the shortage of midwives in East Suffolk, and in Lowestoft in particular; and whether he will strive to improve recruitment by improving salaries and conditions of work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Midwives, East Suffolk (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: Is the Minister aware that Lowestoft has the second highest ratio in the country of domiciliary confinements and that there is need not only for one midwife, as his letter to me indicated, but for two, owing to the reorganisation of the service? Will the hon. Gentleman realise that it is absolutely imperative, in order to secure that the service works, to add to the rewards and improve the...

Trawler "arctic Viking" (Shelling) ( 6 May 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: (by Private Notice) asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will make a statement about the shelling of the British trawler "Arctic Viking" by an Icelandic gunboat outside the 12-mile limit from Iceland.

Trawler "arctic Viking" (Shelling) ( 6 May 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that it is reported in the Press that the "Arctic Viking" was outside the 12-mile limit? Does he not agree that this is a most flagrant violation of international law which brings much discredit on the Icelandic Government? In view of the placatory attitude of the British trawling industry and of Her Majesty's Government in recent months, having offered every...

Trawler "arctic Viking" (Shelling) ( 6 May 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: Will the hon. Gentleman clear up the position with regard to the proposed 6-mile limit? Have negotiations been started, or are they in progress, on the compromise solution that has been suggested of a 6-mile limit, following the recommendation of the Americans last year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany: Anglo-Danish Agreement (Faroese Fishing Limits) ( 2 Mar 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when the new agreement reached in relation to the fishing limits in Faroese waters will become effective.

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany: Anglo-Danish Agreement (Faroese Fishing Limits) ( 2 Mar 1959)

Mr Edward Evans: Was the agreement signed on the basis of the conservation of the fishing waters there or was there a fear of the Danes that there might be undue competition if our vessels were allowed to fish there? Further, were any concessions made by the Danes in respect of our concession on over-fishing, of which they are one of the biggest operators in herring in the south North Sea?

Oral Answers to Questions — Shipbuilding: Lowestoft (10 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in view of the rising incidence in unemployment in the shipbuilding and ship-repairing yards at Lowestoft, he will reconsider his decision not to place contracts for light craft and repairing work in that port.

Oral Answers to Questions — Shipbuilding: Lowestoft (10 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: While thanking the hon. Gentleman for that very small ray of hope, may I call his attention to the fact that, every week, skilled shipwrights and technicians are being discharged because of lack of orders? In view of the long history that the port of Lowestoft has in relation to Admiralty contracts, will he see if anything can be done to ameliorate the deplorable position that is arising in...

Local Government (Grants) ( 8 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: The hon. Gentleman should not believe that.

Local Government (Grants) ( 8 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: I do not propose to make a constituency speech as such, but I wish to traverse a field in which I am intimately concerned and interested. I want to say a few words concerning grants affecting welfare services for the handicapped. The whole subject of the disabled gets little consideration in this House except at Question Time or by a point raised by a private Member. The grants in respect of...

Local Government (Grants) ( 8 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: I am sorry, but I cannot take the hon Gentleman's assurance on that point. I would not for a moment believe that recalcitrant authorities have submitted claims to be included in the general grant scheme. Indeed, some of them are satisfied with the lack of development and in leaving this work to the voluntary societies. It is a nice way out for some of them if they can get those services free....

Local Government (Grants) ( 8 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: They are not going to get grants for the work they are doing already. When we see the L.C.C. accounts we shall find that a very wonderful service will not attract grant, although what they develop in future may do so.

Local Government (Grants) ( 8 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: It is like saying that two clouts across the head are better than three. I could give a list of many of the services which are inadequately performed by the majority of local authorities, not because of a lack of desire on their part but because of lack of funds and encouragement by the Government. We want more sheltered workshops, more domiciliary employment and training schemes, more...

Local Government (Grants) ( 8 Dec 1958)

Mr Edward Evans: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his very kind reference, but I would point out that my speech was concerned with welfare services.
