Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Major Guy Lloyd: I think I am right in saying that, in Committee upstairs, we had the benefit of, at any rate, the gist of the arguments to which we have just listened. They are not new to those of us who have been interested in this question. If I remember aright, the Secretary of State or the Joint Under-Secretary, after listening to those arguments powerfully presented, as they have been again now, said...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Major Guy Lloyd: I was sure that you would not think that that was a point of order, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, and I should have thought that it was a rather specious and unworthy suggestion. I am entitled to a view. We have listened to the views of hon. Members opposite, and I am now saying that, in my view, it is obvious that the Secretary of State has made inquiries into the matter. He told us that he would do...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Major Guy Lloyd: On the other hand, there are some who have not. There have been those who, all the time—at any rate, since 1832 when the Reform Act was passed and democracy reared its head—have tried to do just what hon. Members opposite are now trying to do. They have repeatedly tried to have this practice changed in order to achieve practically the same end as that which hon. Members opposite are now...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Major Guy Lloyd: I take the hon. Gentleman's point, but it is not a publicly elected authority. That is the whole argument. I know that he wants it to be, but it is not. It is a judicial appointment, a judicial body carrying out judicial functions. I see no necessity for election in this case whatever. We have managed for 300 years without it. The dean of guild court in Glasgow is widely respected. Its...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Major Guy Lloyd: I never said anything of the kind.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Major Guy Lloyd: I hope that I am wrong, but what the right hon. Gentleman is now saying gives me the impression that the whole of this business is a vendetta.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: I was very interested in the right hon. Gentleman's simile of a Trojan horse. I can see the point he is trying to make, but I cannot see how it has anything to do with a Trojan horse.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: I differ very much from the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Clackmannan and East Stirlingshire (Mr. Woodburn) in so far as I welcome this Bill, and my only criticism of the Government is that it has not been produced before. There are many hundreds of thousands of people in Scotland who welcome the Bill, and I believe that the Opposition have been mistakenly flogging themselves into a...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: Ultimately, of course, subsidies come out of production and, therefore, they come out of the fruits of industry. If production is not the fruits of industry, what is production? [Laughter.] Nobody who understands economics would laugh at that statement. [An HON. MEMBER: "Who produces the fruits?"] If it is true that subsidies come out of the fruits of industry, we do not want to put too heavy...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: No, I do not think so, because I will not give all the quotations. I will not distress hon. Gentlemen opposite by quoting at least fifteen Socialist speakers, including an ex-Secretary of State for Scotland, the late Joseph Westwood, who, during the passage of various subsidies, said in the House that they thought subsidies ought not to be high and that, when a subsidy was fixed, the first...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: Now I come to the Bill itself. The suggestion which the right hon. Gentleman the Member for East Stirlingshire made in his speech was that Scotland has been badly treated and that Scotland has a grievance because of this Bill; but I have studied the Bill, too, and I contend that, by and large, Scotland has been favoured and that England may well have a grievance that we in Scotland have been...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: I understand that they are calculated on the basis of earnings—

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: —by the Department of Health. Is it denied that average earnings have gone up over these years? Of course they have, and in many cases there is more than one wage-earner in the house. Earnings have increased a great deal and rents have increased very little.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: It still represents only about 3 per cent. of the tenant's earnings.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: If I am wrong I will stand corrected, but I do not think that anybody can deny that present rents represent a very substantially lower percentage of earnings than they did hitherto. In other words, the tenant can afford his rent better than he could hitherto, because his rent represents a lower proportion of his earnings. The right hon. Member for East Sterlingshire seemed at one time to...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: If rents had been put up over the years we should now have nothing like the existing high rates. There is no denying that that is true. Is it fair to the remainder of the ratepayers and the rest of the community that they should have to pay high rates simply because certain authorities refuse to raise rents, especially when it is shrewdly suspected that the main reason for that refusal is...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: The Bill should help to provide new building, because if the differentials are properly allocated and if, as the Secretary of State suggested, the pool of subsidies is properly used by the local authorities, there should be a proper balance on the housing account, which would mean in many cases a margin available for the cost of building new houses. The case against the Bill is either...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: Since the hon. Member has asked me, I think he will remember —as my hon. Friend will and I remember —that I said subsidised houses should not be provided for those who did not need them.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill (18 Feb 1957)

Major Guy Lloyd: The argument is illogical.

Education Scotland ( 1 Nov 1955)

Major Guy Lloyd: We have listened with rapt attention to an admirable and informative speech by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for East Stirlingshire (Mr. Woodburn), delivered in his very best vein, and with which none of us on this side of the House could, in my judgment, possibly disagree. I am happy to find myself in such general agreement with the right hon. Gentleman, and I hope that the rest of the...
