Industrial Development, Seaham Harbour (28 Jan 1955)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Member for Houghton-le-Spring (Mr. Blyton) referred in his speech to a deputation from the local authority which he brought to see me in September, 1954. I then tried to explain to him some of the matters which puzzled him and the deputation. My difficulty in answering him further today will be appreciated by him and by the House. The dealings between the Board of Trade and an...

Trading Estate Factories, Sunderland (9 Dec 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I certainly make no complaint of the friendly attitude of the hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey). Whatever words have passed between us on any other occasion, our personal relations have remained friendly and he has always given me some indication in advance of the topics he would raise. I have little time, and if I do not deal with everything raised by the hon. Member and my...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development Plan, Dagenham (7 Dec 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I can say at the outset that the hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker) and the hon. and learned Member for Horn-church (Mr. Bing) have raised an important and difficult subject. I would say at once that on this point I agree with them; any large extension of industry within the Greater London area clearly raises many problems such as those which have been described and which are also in the...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development Plan, Dagenham (7 Dec 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: If I did not deal so fully with Hornchurch it was 'because that was not mentioned as the subject of this Adjournment debate. I ought, however, to say to the hon. and learned Member straight away that the Board of Trade's task is solely to consider the question of whether a particular development is consistent with the proper distribution of industry. Further questions of housing, and so on,...

Orders of the Day — Spinning Mill, Oldham (Closure) (19 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale) has often showed his concern with matters that have excited interest in his constituency. The matter he has raised today arises directly from the Question that he put to my right hon. Friend on 28th October, 1954. I know that the hon. Member will join me in regretting the inevitable absence of my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham, East (Mr. Horobin)...

Orders of the Day — Spinning Mill, Oldham (Closure) (19 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I was only giving the statistical facts, but I should be distressed indeed if I did not think that these men and women had not only good prospects of employment but also good prospects of work in their own industry. That is the point with which I wish to deal. Although I have the actual figures of total unemployment in Oldham, in view of what the hon. Gentleman said at the beginning of his...

Orders of the Day — Spinning Mill, Oldham (Closure) (19 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: On the question of those previously employed in Granville Mill, I have been in communication with the department of the Ministry of Labour concerned, and I am informed that no employee of this mill is signing the unemployment register. Passing for the moment from the question of employment to other possible effects—and this was quite rightly mentioned by the hon. Member—we must also...

Orders of the Day — Clause 28. — (Miscellaneous Provisions Relating to Board of Trade and Their Regulations.) (11 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I beg to move, in page 26, line 41, after "entry," to insert: and section twenty-one of this Act. This is really a drafting Amendment, and rectifies an accidental omission.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: First-Feature Films (Selection Committee) (9 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I assume that the hon. Member refers to the Selection Committee which is appointed by the Board of Trade to advise them whether a film, in respect of which an application has been made to the Board to make a direction under Section 5 (2) of the Cinematograph Films Act, 1948, is suitable for exhibition as a first-feature film by reason of its entertainment value. I will, with permission,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Film Studios (9 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: My right hon. Friend understands that some studios have been bought or leased by companies interested in the production of films for television, but he is not aware of any present shortage of studio space or of any need for Government action.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Film Studios (9 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I am sorry that the hon. Member should give currency to these rumours. There is no reason to think that the transaction concerning the Nettlefold Studios will lead to any contraction of the facilities available there for the production of films for the cinema. I understand that there are no current negotiations for the sale of Shepperton. If the hon. Member has information to the contrary, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (9 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: Dealing, first, with the last supplementary question, the White Fish Authority referred to this question in its last annual report. Hon. Members may like to know that the trawler owners, at the request of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, are drafting proposals to replace their voluntary scheme of controls by a statutory scheme with proper safeguards. Any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (9 Nov 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Member may recall that the Board of Trade has asked the Monopolies Commission to investigate and report on certain widely prevalent practices, including exclusive dealing and collective boycott. It would clearly be absurd to legislate on those matters in ignorance of what the Commission will report.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (9 Nov 1954)
