Mr Fred Blackburn: As one who has seen the Australian system in operation, may I ask my right hon. Friend to resist this suggestion?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons (10 Aug 1966)

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (Committee Stage) (3 Aug 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: It may be some measure of relief to hon. Members when I say that I have no intention of going into the details of the economic situation or into the history of the Prices and Incomes Bill. Nor do I intend to discuss in detail the provisions of the Bill. Instead, I will restrict my remarks to the Motion and the procedural matters which emerge from it. I must, first, correct a statement made...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (Committee Stage) (3 Aug 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Nevertheless, the Motion asks for the Standing Committee to be discharged and for the Committee stage of the Bill to be taken on the Floor of the House. It does not say that Part IV should be discussed in principle on the Floor of the House; just that the whole Committee stage should take place here. In any case, I pointed out at the beginning of my remarks that I would concentrate on the...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (Committee Stage) (3 Aug 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I am not discussing that point but, since the hon. and learned Gentleman has raised it, it is worth considering Motion No. 183 on the Notice Paper standing in the names of the Leader of the Liberal Party and a number of his hon. Friends. That appears to be a criticism of the Leader of the House in that it states that the House … deplores his refusal either to arrange for a second reading...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (Committee Stage) (3 Aug 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I intervene because this is something that should be cleared up at once. Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman suggesting that what has been done by the Government is outside the rules of order?

Chairman of Ways and Means (Conduct) (6 Jul 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: As one who was present on the occasion in question, I am able, in the words of the right hon. Member for Enfield, West (Mr. kin Macleod), to resurrect the scene. It seems to me that the task which the Israelites had of making bricks without straw was not more difficult than the task of the Opposition of making this so-called censure Motion credible to the House. It is a very mild censure...

Mr Fred Blackburn: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when the next school building programme will be announced.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: School Building Programme (19 May 1966)

Oral Answers to Questions — Works Meetings (Impositionof Monetary Penalties) (18 May 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that works meetings are not the only places where monetary penalties are imposed? Does he recall that last week I sent him evidence that a branch of the Showmen's Guild had fined one of its members £200, for a breach of one of the rules? Has he any evidence of the number of organisations which claim the right to impose such penalties?

Oral Answers to Questions — Witnesses (Payments by Newspapers) (11 May 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Is the Attorney-General aware that, whether the newspaper promised more or less, there is a great deal of resentment in my constituency, where these witnesses live?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Pigs and Milk (Profitability) (2 Mar 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: With regard to the price of pigs, is it correct, as farmers claim, that only 40 per cent. goes to farmers, and 60 per cent. to dealers?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) (7 Feb 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Am I right in my interpretation of the scheme in thinking that a person suffering from byssinosis or pneumoconiosis is entitled to benefit and not limited by having to be engaged in a scheduled occupation? Is it not obvious that anyone suffering from byssinosis or pneumoconiosis has contracted the illness through his occupation? I recently had an unfortunate case of a constituent who had...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) (7 Feb 1966)

Mr Fred Blackburn: My knowledge of the procedure of the House was responsible for the form in which I put my question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Television Programmes (Content) (15 Dec 1965)

Mr Fred Blackburn: My right hon. Friend said that there was a responsibility for seeing that there was nothing offensive to public taste. Does he not agree that the use of a crucifix as a pipe rack was offensive to public taste?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Textiles (Imports from Hong Kong) (2 Dec 1965)

Mr Fred Blackburn: Will my right hon. Friend also bear in mind that the home industry has its case, too?

Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (Committee Stage) (18 Mar 1965)

Mr Fred Blackburn: We have had the very interesting spectacle this afternoon of two former gamekeepers opposing each other. The right hon. Member for Rushcliffe (Sir M. Redmayne) used some strange arguments in his speech. During the years that I have been here I have never known this Chamber not to be ready for action by half-past ten in the morning. If we have these Wednesday morning sittings there will be no...

Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (Committee Stage) (18 Mar 1965)

Mr Fred Blackburn: The hon. Gentleman is always wanting to interrupt. Perhaps if he will let me make my speech—

Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (Committee Stage) (18 Mar 1965)

Mr Fred Blackburn: —I can possibly answer the things he wants to say. He is such a regular interrupter—[An HON. MEMBER: "Particularly on a Friday."]—that I am not disposed to give way to him at the moment. There is no telling what might happen before I have reached the end of my speech. I cannot believe that there is anyone in the House so naïve as to think that a Government would not retain control...

Personal Statement (24 Feb 1965)

Mr Fred Blackburn: I am very grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, for the opportunity to correct a misunderstanding which arose on Monday evening in the debate on the Third Reading of the Welsh Shipping Agency Bill, a misunderstanding which could reflect on me as the Chairman of the Committee stage of the Bill and upon the Clerks, which could cause doubts in the minds of hon. Members of this House and which could have...
