Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Shopbreaking (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: If the hon. Member is thinking of cases where someone openly drives up to a shop, breaks the window, steals and drives away, there were three such cases known to the Metropolitan police in 1954, one in 1955 and two in the first six months of 1956. The property stolen was valued at £4,000. All but £5 worth is as yet unrecovered. No corresponding figures are available for other forces. If...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees from Egypt (Visas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: The Swiss authorities, acting as protecting Power, have issued 51 visas to foreigners in Egypt to come to the United Kingdom. No precise figures are available of the number of British subjects who have arrived from Egypt, but such records as it has been possible to make show that nearly 2,000 British refugees from Egypt are now in the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees from Egypt (Visas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: Very sympathetic consideration is given in the case of those who have relatives here, and of others who have not. About 40 have been allowed to come in without visas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees from Egypt (Visas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I am not quite clear what the hon. Member means by Egyptians insisting upon them leaving other countries. About 2,000 British refugees have come in from Egypt and about 1,400 of them are accommodated in hostels.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees from Egypt (Visas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: Yes. I now follow what the hon. Gentleman means. I shall certainly give sympatheic consideration to that point.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Electoral Register (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: The hon. Member is under a misapprehension. In 1949 the autumn register, the qualifying date for which was 15th June, was abolished on grounds of economy. In response to strong representations from both sides of the House the Government of the day introduced the present provision to give persons reaching the age of 21 by 15th June the same voting rights as they would have had if the autumn...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Electoral Register (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I think that the hon. Member is under a misapprehension. Under the old scheme they had to wait for sixteen months before they were entitled to vote.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Electoral Register (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: That is what Parliament decided, and there is nothing we can do about it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: State Management Licensed Premises (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: There are other places in Carlisle where one can get milk. If my hon. Friend is hoping to get rid of surplus milk by offering it for sale in public houses he is more optimistic than I am. There are milk bars in Carlisle, and in all the hotels and restaurants run by State management people can get milk.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: State Management Licensed Premises (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I do not dispute that with the hon. Member for a moment that is perfectly true. But I regret to have to inform him that there is no demand for milk in licensed premises in Carlisle.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: State Management Licensed Premises (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I am glad to take this opportunity of repudiating the suggestion that any public house manager in the Carlisle State Management Scheme has ever been instructed to increase profits by giving short measure. On the contrary the Home Office has assured the Civil Service Union, which represents the managers of State Management Public Houses, that such practices would not be tolerated.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: State Management Licensed Premises (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I have already said that I repudiate wholly what has been said, and I have done so on information. Before I took over the office of Home Secretary, in September, 1954, the Civil Service Union was asked to supply evidence in regard to this, and up to now we have not received any such evidence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Drunkenness (Young Persons) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: The figure of 669 represents an increase over previous years, the corresponding figures for 1954 and 1953 being 511 and 368 respectively. Figures for 1952 are not available. Last year I asked chief constables for whatever information was available about each offence of drunkenness by persons under 18 in their police districts during 1954 and 1955. In 55 per cent. of the cases reported on, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Drunkenness (Young Persons) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I made some inquiries last year on this subject, when the question was raised of the danger of occasional licences. The granting of these licences is in the hands of the justices. I asked the chief constables of England and Wales to look into this, and they then said that they could not find any evidence to that effect. I have asked them again, and if I thought that this was becoming a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Attempted Suicide (Law) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: As long ago as 1916 the Metropolitan Police adopted, with the approval of the then Secretary of State, the practice of preferring a charge of attempted suicide only where there is no responsible person able or willing to take charge of the individual concerned, or where special circumstances, such as threats of renewed attempts of suicide or positive indications of insanity suggest that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Attempted Suicide (Law) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I should not like to get into a discussion about what is better in Scotland or in England. There are one or two things which we have accepted from Scotland as being better, but I am not at all sure that this would be one of those cases. So far as the Metropolitan Police are concerned, this circular was issued in 1921, the idea being—and I think that it is a sound one—that where a person...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Attempted Suicide (Law) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: I am not likely to forget the North, because I happen to sit for a seat in the North. The fact of the matter is that it is through the courts that it is possible to get the use of these voluntary organisations, and all that the Metropolitan Police have done since 1921 has been to tell the provincial forces of their experience, and they are prepared to do so again.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Fee-Charging Employment Agencies (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: The legislation to which I referred in my Answer to the hon. Member on 13th December would regulate the conduct of fee-charging employment agencies, and would not in any way affect the notification of vacancies by employers to employment exchanges. If the hon. Member is suggesting that all vacancies should be notified to the employment exchanges, I can only refer her to the reply given by my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Fee-Charging Employment Agencies (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Gwilym Lloyd George: As I think I told the hon. Lady before, it will need legislation which I will bring in as soon as Parliamentary time permits. As to the other part of the Question, I can only refer her to what my right hon. Friend said in answer to her Question on 23rd October with regard to the Notification of Vacancies Order.
