Elderly and Disabled Persons, Wales (Employment) (12 Jul 1961)

Mr James Jones: I imagine that it is very rare that an hon. Member on either side of the House is followed in the debate by a Member on the same side. I am sure that it is even rarer that a brother in the flesh follows his hon. Friend. That is the only way to put it in Parliamentary language. I know Blaenau Ffestiniog very well. I know it almost as well as my hon. Friend the Member for Merioneth (Mr. T. W....

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Economic Situation (7 Nov 1961)

Mr James Jones: Debates on the economic situation take place at such frequent intervals that they usually follow the same pattern. The pattern has already shown itself this afternoon. There is generally a complacent attitude towards the economy as it is but at the same time a certain measure of concern to justify the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Government applying certain restraints. We have seen...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Economic Situation (7 Nov 1961)

Mr James Jones: The hon. Gentleman ought to read the speeches made by Ministers in the last fortnight. He will find that what I am saying is justified. The hon. Gentleman should read the speeches of Ministers. If he does that I shall be satisfied. If it is a sober thought to the Minister of Labour, it should be a sober thought to hon. Members opposite. Coming to shipping, this was at one time a most...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (29 Nov 1961)

Mr James Jones: Do they get the coal?

Orders of the Day — EDUCATION (Recommitted) BILL: Clause 1. — (Local Education Authority Awards for First Degree Univer Sity Courses and Comparable Courses in United Kingdom.) (21 Feb 1962)

Mr James Jones: I should like to ask a question concerning the University of Wales and the degree a bachelor of divinity. It is normally a first degree course, but in Wales a person cannot take a B.D. course or sit for a B.D. degree unless he has his B.A. degree. I think I am right in saying that the B.D. course is in some respects a first degree course, although it follows another first degree. I know that...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (19 Mar 1962)

Mr James Jones: I enjoyed the speech delivered by the hon. Member for Antrim, North (Mr. H. Clark), especially his argument for exporting more to the under-developed nations. It would be much more healthy if we tapped the potential of a market of 660 million people within our Commonwealth. If we acted wisely in this matter there is no doubt that our future markets would be assured. Hon. Members opposite...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1962)

Mr James Jones: The founder of Yale University actually lived within about 600 yards of my home.

Orders of the Day — Education (17 May 1962)

Mr James Jones: We have listened to a very interesting speech by the hon. Member for Hertfordshire, South-West (Mr. Longden), especially from the point of view of the situation at the universities and the future for the universities, and I may refer to that later on in my observations. I recall that when I was a pupil at a grammar school—I am sorry to say that it is over fifty years ago—the master told...

Orders of the Day — Education (17 May 1962)

Mr James Jones: I said that the secondary modern schools had lost prestige from the start because they were not given the right opportunity.

Wales and Monmouthshire (Report) (2 Aug 1962)

Mr James Jones: The hon. Gentleman has referred to technical education in South Wales and the regional college at Treforest, and so on, but he has made no reference to North Wales. Is it part of the policy of the Government to have a regional college for North Wales? That was recommended some years ago and it also recommended by the Advisory Committee last year.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (21 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: They are Welsh sheep, though.

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: The hon. Member for the City of Chester (Mr. Temple) will forgive me if I do not follow him in his arguments. The White Paper is a valuable and informative document, but one is bound to suggest that the proposition concerning factories does not measure up to the needs of the change in the industrial pattern of the country. One of the most striking phenomena of recent years has been the...

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: I cannot hope to enlighten the hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro) on this point. In the figures of investment in coal, there is a reduction from £94 million in 1960–61 to £83 million in 1963–64—a reduction of £11 million. There is also a reduction in the estimated costs of new major schemes, from £67½ million in 1957 to £5 million in 1961–62, which is a very...

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: Hon. Members opposite nearly lost all five by-elections. We have nothing to thank the Government for. Public investment has been denied to us. New industries have not arrived. On the contrary, what little public investment we have had since 1947 has been placed under the auctioneer's hammer to he sold against the Inland Revenue for a handful of silver. Just for a handful of silver, we have...

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: I was talking about Wrexham.

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: Mr. Idwal Jones rose—

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: Is the hon. Gentleman prepared to give way?

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: I said that in February, 1960, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade told me that there were 400 jobs on the way to Wrexham. I then said that these 400 jobs had not come to Wrexham, and that as far as I know they are still travelling hopefully on the way. They have not arrived. That is the statement I made, and I stick to it.

Public Investment (27 Nov 1962)

Mr James Jones: Mr. Idwal Jones rose—

School Building and Teacher Shortage (26 Mar 1963)

Mr James Jones: In replying to the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey), the Parliamentary Secretary complained that my hon. Friend had used too dark colours in his painting, that he had used black rather too often. Perhaps I may be allowed to point out to the Parliamentary that every true artist builds up his picture from the shadows. A true artist always starts with the...
