Contingencies Fund, 1977–78: Prisoners and Human Rights (29 Mar 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: Does the Under-Secretary of State accept that where prison conditions in other countries are less satisfactory than they should be, there is good ground for revising extradition treaties? Will the hon. Lady have regard to recent cases in that respect?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Authority Manual Workers ( 7 Mar 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: As the Secretary of State advocates a hierarchical system for wages and salaries, does one not arrive at the irrefutable conclusion that some people must be the lower paid? Who does he think they should be?

Portland (Flooding) (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: Mr. Evelyn King(by private notice) asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in the light of the Portland flood disaster and the damage sustained by residents on the nights of 13 December and 13 February, he will indicate the action likely to be taken to prevent further loss, either of life or property, and the size and nature of the compensation to be provided.

Portland (Flooding) (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: I thank the Minister for the sympathy that he has extended to my constituents. I add my gratitude, and I am sure his, to the Army, the Navy and local and other authorities which are at this moment dealing with the tragedy. Is the Minister aware that this is the second time that this has happened within two months? Does he realise that this disaster means not only waves 60 ft. high but 70...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Professional Association of Teachers ( 6 Feb 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, further to her reply to the honourable and gallant Member for Winchester (Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles), what is the estimated membership of the Professional Association of Teachers, whose application for membership of the Burnham committee she has rejected.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Professional Association of Teachers ( 6 Feb 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: Does it not remain a fact that, whether the membership is 10,000 or 12,000, this fast growing union, pledged as it is never to strike, is denied recognition by the Department whilst a teachers' union of 3,000 is granted recognition? In these difficult times, when one finds a union that is prepared to behave responsibly, as this union is, why on earth does not the Minister encourage it?

Local Authority Manual Workers (Pay) (31 Jan 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: Does the Minister agree that we would all prefer successful negotiation? Negotiation presupposes equality of strength between the two sides. Within the existing legislative framework and philosophy of the Government, and their actions over recent years, there is now no incentive for those who strike to settle at all, except upon the basis of total victory to them and total defeat for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: TUC (30 Jan 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: Does the Prime Minister accept that in relation to industrial unrest no one in this House wishes the Government to be guilty of provocation? Nor does anyone wish them to be guilty of political cowardice. But the line between the two is very thin. In so far as the Government hesitate to enforce the law, and do not enforce the right of citizens to go about their daily business without fear, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: TUC (25 Jan 1979)

Mr Evelyn King: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Might I ask you, with due respect, having regard to the enormous number of hon. Members who wish to be called from all districts and for a variety of reasons, whether it is entirely reasonable for you to call two members of the Liberal Party?

Bill Presented: Rate Support Grant (14 Dec 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: The hon. Gentleman has quoted almost every association, but he has totally omitted the Association of County Councils, of which Dorset and all the other shire counties are members. Those counties have the greatest grievance of all, and the most justifiable grievance.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Prime Minister (Engagements) ( 5 Dec 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: Reverting to the case of the dismissed trade unionist, Mr. Thompson, while I fully accept the Lord President's view that he ought not to make a statement until the facts are established, may I ask him to give a firm undertaking that, when he has established the facts, he will make a statement to the House in the context of possible revised legislation on the closed shop, having regard to the...

Petition: Lytchett Minster School (28 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: With your permission Mr. Deputy Speaker, I present a humble petition from the residents in Upton, Dorset, and others who live in that area. It is supported by 1,290 persons. Many of them are parents who are anxious about the educational future of that area. The petition sheweth: That a request by the Dorset county council in its capacity as a local education authority to the Secretary of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Coastguard Services (Dorset) (27 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: asked the Secretary of State for Trade what plans he has to run down the coastguard services at Swanage and St. Aldhelm's Head; and for what reasons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Coastguard Services (Dorset) (27 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: I thank the Minister for his sensible reply which will counteract local rumour.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Naval Pay and Records Office (21 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: Is it not the Royal Naval Pay and Records Office that is responsible for the handling of the case—I have sent the Minister the particulars —of the Dorset officer who, having been taken on for eight years on the understanding that at the end of that period he would receive a £6,000 gratuity, found his service dispensed with after 7¼ years with no adequate reason given? Will the hon....

Business of the House (16 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: Has the right hon. Gentleman seen early-day motion no. 58 seeking to negative the Southern Sea Fisheries District (Variation) Order 1978 in the interests of the fishermen of Weymouth? Will he provide time to debate that motion? If, as I suspect, he gives the answer "No", will he reflect upon the whole system under which Parliament supposedly has the right of a negative resolution but in fact...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia ( 8 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: The right hon. Gentleman appears to be suggesting, as indeed, did the Attorney-General and the Foreign Secretary, that the directors of these companies may be guilty of a criminal offence. If it were true that either Ministers or civil servants were aware of this, is it not also true that they would be accessories after the fact and would also be guilty of a criminal offence?

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia ( 8 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: The hon. Member's argument is that the Government of the day, or at least some members of it, and certainly civil servants, knew very well what was happpening. But the Foreign Secretary has told us that there is a possibility of criminal proceedings against officials of the oil companies involved. Would it not be a monstrous injustice if they were doing it with the Government as accessories...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Private Rented Accommodation ( 8 Nov 1978)

Mr Evelyn King: Apart from other rental legislation, does the Minister accept that when security of tenure was given to tenants of furnished accommodation large numbers of units of accommodation were withdrawn from the market? Has he any estimate of the number of persons who have been rendered homeless on that account?
