Orders of the Day — Tourist Industries (21 Jun 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Not always.

Orders of the Day — Tourist Industries (21 Jun 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am sure the hon. Gentleman would not wish to misrepresent what I said. I said, not that it was a matter of consultation, but that the Government Departments concerned with the recommendations of these bodies appeared to do nothing about those recommendations.

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies (1 Jun 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The Parliamentary Secretary mentioned values; he mentioned the years 1935–36 and 1948–49, and he quoted £2,500,000 and £6 million. Are those correct values or true values at the dates given, and will the hon. Gentleman translate them into modern costs?

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies (1 Jun 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Could the hon. Gentleman say at which stage of the procedure, if he is blaming the procedure, delay occurs? As far as I have been able to discover, it is always at the Ministry of Health.

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies (1 Jun 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: It is only straight pipes that are being exported?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 2. — (Quashing of Certain Demolition Orders.) (30 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I beg to second the Amendment. I was not on the Committee upstairs, but I have read the Debate on this issue very carefully and I cannot help feeling that when the Minister said what he did say in Committee he was rather belittling the case. I do not wish to fall into the same fault in the opposite direction by exaggerating; I do not think that anyone on this side of the House who is...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 2. — (Quashing of Certain Demolition Orders.) (30 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Of course, they did. I am talking about houses which are subject to demolition orders, and if the hon. Gentleman has not heard that he has not been listening to what I have been saying. That is the whole object of this Clause.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 2. — (Quashing of Certain Demolition Orders.) (30 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Member knows the answer to that point perfectly well. At the time when those demolition orders were made, the local authority felt absolutely justified in saying that within a reasonable expense the houses could not be brought into a habitable condition. These were all pre-war demolition orders. Now when housing costs are so much higher and a greater expenditure is economically...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 2. — (Quashing of Certain Demolition Orders.) (30 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Is the right hon. Gentleman forgetting the case of which I have just told him, where the houses have been in the hands of the local authority throughout the war after demolition orders had been made against them and where just sufficient work of a temporary nature has been done on them to keep them habitable? He appears to be forgetting that case when he says that the houses have been...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 2. — (Quashing of Certain Demolition Orders.) (30 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Is the hon. Gentleman quite certain that he wishes to enforce people to live in only partially reconditioned houses which are subject to a demolition order longer than they need? That is what his policy means.

Licensing Bill (17 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I think that the whole House will regret that the hon. Member for West Ealing (Mr. J. Hudson) was unable to sit down happy. Whether we disagree with him or not, I am sure that we all like to see him happy, because he enjoys himself so much when he puts his case and we enjoy listening to him, even when we do not agree with his remarks. I do not wish to disturb him on the matter of night clubs....

Licensing Bill (17 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Is that why the hon. Member votes so frequently against the Government?

Licensing Bill (17 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Member's speech is completely at variance with the attitude of his own Front Bench who have assured us on more than one occasion, especially on Second Reading, that this is not a vindictive Bill and is not an attack on the brewers at all.

Licensing Bill (17 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: rose—

Licensing Bill (17 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I asked a question on Second Reading on exactly this issue. I asked whether members of the State Management Council were to be members of the local advisory committees. The right hon. Gentleman's answer at that time was that they would not be. The right hon. Gentleman now, I gather, has completely reversed that decision. I want to get the point clear, and that is why I ask this question.

New Clause. — (Provision of Alternative Accommodation Where Licensed Premises Acquired.) (10 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I agree with the remarks of my hon. Friend the Member for Westbury (Mr. Grimston). The Home Secretary has perpetrated two wrongs by his action and he has attempted to put one of those wrongs right while leaving the far more serious wrong of depriving a man of his livelihood at his whim or the whim of the Secretary of State for Scotland. I am not quite sure whose whim T should choose. I am in...

New Clause. — (Provision of Alternative Accommodation Where Licensed Premises Acquired.) (10 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I was sorry to hear the closing phrases of the speech of the hon. Member for Eccles (Mr. Proctor). I could not help thinking that he was looking rather suspiciously at the empty place at the end of the Front Bench, and that it was not so much the wording of the Amendment which deterred him as the fear of what might happen when the Patronage Secretary returned and had a word with him later....

New Clause. — (Special Hours Certificates for Certain Clubs.) (10 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The right hon. Gentleman gave an undertaking in Committee upstairs to look into the question of whether it was necessary or right to amend the general provisions so that no place should be forced to stay open if it were losing money. By what he said earlier this afternoon, it would appear that any place would run grave risk of losing its licence, or not obtaining a new licence, if it were not...

Clause 5. — (Acquisition of Land.) (10 May 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I do not want to intervene at any length but we must clear up certain points before we go into the Lobby which we cannot avoid doing. I see that the hon. Member for Mitcham (Mr. Braddock) is now in his place. He may have been told that my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Boyd-Carpenter) quoted from a letter of his as an example of the misunderstanding which existed on the...
