Procedure (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I shall refer later to the question of length of speeches, but begin by congratulating the Procedure Committee on getting some recognition of its labours with some minor Amendments on the Paper. As a member of all Procedure Committees in the 1955 and 1959 Parliaments, I have some experience of the innate conservatism of this House, particularly of the two Front Benches. As a member of the...

Procedure (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I agree with the idea of Mr. Speaker not having to give his reasons, but I still maintain that there is not sufficient difference between the recommendation and the present Standing Order No. 9. I had hoped that a suggestion would be made to regularise the position regarding counts. Consider the fiasco during the Consolidated Fund Bill. Instead of having one set of rules following the...

Cotton Textile Industry (20 Mar 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I am glad to have this opportunity to voice the views of Cheshire, although I assure hon. Members that my remarks will not be as boring or as long as those of the hon. and learned Member for Southport (Mr. Percival). My hon. Friends will have been amazed at the arrogance of the hon. and learned Gentleman in coming here tonight when we have no recollection of his having taken part in a debate...

Cotton Textile Industry (20 Mar 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: No. Sit down. I am not giving way. I find it difficult to speak with moderation about the repeated crises which have occurred in the textile industry and the way in which the industry has been treated by successive Governments. Today, the industry is really angry, because it expected so much more from a Labour Government. The textile industry is still of great importance in my constituency,...

Textile Council Imports Commission (14 Mar 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, while we are always grateful for small mercies, a Commission without any power at all will not satisfy the industry?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Television Annunciators (13 Mar 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Is my right hon. Friend aware that I support my hon. Friend the Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling)? Since the closed circuit television system is not proving very popular, does not my right hon. Friend think that this is an opportune time to allow hon. Members to see the new telex annunciators?

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Dependent Relatives (27 Feb 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: On behalf of my hon. Friend the Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling), I beg to give notice that on Monday 13th March he will draw attention to the needs of single women with dependent relatives, and move a Resolution.

Humberside Road Network (25 Jan 1967)

Mr Fred Blackburn: On a point or order. May I ask for your help, Mr. Speaker? May we have the Tannoy system overhauled in this Chamber? Much of what is said is quite inaudible at this end of the Chamber. The only alternative seems to be for hon. Members at that end to take elocution lessons. We cannot hear much of what takes place in the Chamber.

Bill Presented: Clause 7. — (Vesting in the Corpora- Tion of Securities of Scheduled Companies.) (23 Jan 1967)

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (13 Dec 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: The hon. Member for Gillingham (Mr. Burden), who breezed in late into the debate and has now breezed out, felt that he should apologise for intervening. Having been born in a Lancashire textile constituency and having represented for many years a famous Cheshire textile constituency, I do not feel that I need to make any apology for entering into this debate. There has been a note of...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (13 Dec 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Surely dumping is when a country is selling abroad at lower prices than at home—which is what has happened with regard to sheeting from Portugal.

House of Commons Proceedings (Broadcasting) (24 Nov 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: According to the hon. Member for Abingdon (Mr. Neave), I must be very unreasonable, because in the year 1966 I do object to the experiment. Things are very serious when the two Front Benches agree and both of them are wrong. We expected the hon. Member for Howden (Mr. Bryan) to adopt the attitude he did, because he is a member of the Committee and we therefore expected him to have a vested...

House of Commons Proceedings (Broadcasting) (24 Nov 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I am sorry that I omitted that. I have a note of that sentence, and I should have said that Sir Ronald does not think that it is detrimental to Parliament. I want to use another quotation from the evidence of the Speaker of the New Zealand Parliament. What he refers to would not arise here, because the conditions are quite different, but it indicates that when our proceedings are televised...
