Orders of the Day — New Town, Basildon (Freeholders) (15 May 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I was amazed at the speech of the hon. Member for Bristol, Central (Mr. Awbery). He appeared to me to be abusing the very system that has been adopted as the basis of the development in the new towns. Those of us who took an interest in the New Towns Bill and also in the Licensing Bill, when under discussion upstairs, recognised fully the evil of a closed shop of leasehold tenure into which...

Orders of the Day — Joint Consultation in Industry (5 Apr 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The whole House has been extremely interested in the speech of the hon. Member for Rotherham (Mr. Jack Jones). He speaks with the advantage of many years' practical experience of the difficulties which are to be met in achieving what we all want to bring about, namely, an extension of joint consultation. I was specially interested in what he said about the policy of the party to which I...

Orders of the Day — Joint Consultation in Industry (5 Apr 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I see the point. Surely, the answer is that there must be something wrong with the wage structure, or something else, if in fact added efficiency does not get the additional reward which it deserves. I think that side of the matter is outside the normal scope of joint consultation as we are discussing it today. It is far better left in the hands of the recognised authorities, such as the...

Orders of the Day — Political Parties (Accounts) (15 Dec 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Does the hon. Member also say that the Liberal Party are publishing, or propose to publish, any record of help given to their candidates by way of election expenses from large trade bodies or federations?

Orders of the Day — Parliament Square (Improvements) Bill (14 Dec 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I should like to give my support in general to the Government's proposal. I know it is a rare occasion. I do not like the way they are doing this, but I think this is the right Government to do what is proposed. It has been suggested that this is not the moment to remove a monument—nobody is quite sure what it is a monument to—which may stand for something, but which is in doubtful style....

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces (Housing Loans) Bill (29 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I rise only in the hope that I can remove any fears from the minds of His Majesty's Government that the attitude taken or the questions put by the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Carmichael) will be taken too seriously. I feel quite sure that he was alone, and is permanently alone, in this House in putting fears into our minds that we should be filching labour from a declining labour force in...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces (Housing Loans) Bill (29 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Member has disclosed the fallacy under which his mind is working. I look upon the Army, the Navy and the Royal Air Force as part of the population of this country. If they are not housed in houses which will be built for them under this Bill, their families will have to be housed elsewhere. It is the basic fallacy of those who follow the line of thought of the hon. Member for...

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Does the hon. Gentleman really mean that if in the opinion of the Government a factory is only working at 30 par cent. of its efficiency or its production rate, the Government should step in and say, "We are taking over this place in order to give it to somebody else "?

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am sure the hon. Member does not want to mislead the House, and I do not want to misunderstand him. I am very interested in the prosperity of Wales because the prosperity of the part of the country which I represent depends on the prosperity of South Wales. Does the hon. Gentleman really mean that the whole place has got to be vacant, or does he mean, what in fact he implied, that if some...

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Do I understand that the Government have—

Foreign Affairs (17 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: rose—

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Devolution) (16 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am alarmed at my temerity in intervening in this Debate. I do so entirely as an individual private Member, and although I am entirely a Scotsman without a drop of English blood in my veins, I should like to put the possible reactions, as I see them, which might result in the minds of some English people amongst whom I live, to some of the things which have been said or suggested here this...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Devolution) (16 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I can think of many words, Parliamentary and unparliamentary, to describe it, but I think most hon. Members will realise what "frustration" means. It means that one wishes to do a job of work but feels one cannot do it. That, putting it shortly, is the sense in which I used the word. Having, as most Scotsmen have, many friends and an abundance of relatives north of the Border, although I...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Devolution) (16 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Indeed, yes. I can assure hon. Members who have not had experience of trying to set up enterprises in countries overseas—even where they are British Dominions—that sometimes it can be extremely embarrassing. One has to make it perfectly clear that one is not robbing those already there of something which they could do equally well themselves. To take an example of an extreme nature, it is...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Devolution) (16 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: If I had time, I would turn to the question of docks, and I could tell the hon. Member quite a lot about that subject, too. If he looks at his atlas, however, and sees things in relation to geography, he will find the answer. But let us keep to the point about manufacturing, which is the point with which I want to deal. I am not saying for one moment that those of us who are Scotsmen and...

Orders of the Day — Dulcote Hill, Wells (Quarrying) (9 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Surely the hon. Gentleman is not suggesting that in the course of the last 70 years any suggestion was even made, or in fact any work ever done, to remove the top of the hill. This is an entirely new project.

Orders of the Day — Profits Tax Bill (3 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: When the hon. Member speaks of "return on capital" does he really mean the return on the total amount of capital employed in any one business?

Orders of the Day — Profits Tax Bill (3 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Can the hon. Member give any indication of the effect of the limitation on capital issues as regards the picture he has just drawn? Is it not a fact had there not been a rigid control of capital issues, particularly on the total amount, the capital involved would have been very different from what he has indicated.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Boundary Commission (Dissolution) Bill (2 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I suppose that the hon. Member does not recognise anything abnormal about the times between 1933 and 1939?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Boundary Commission (Dissolution) Bill (2 Nov 1949)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I was thinking much more in terms of the international situation, which a great many of us were working very hard to meet.
