International Eisteddfod (8 Mar 1967)

Mr James Jones: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make further provision for contributions by local authorities in Wales (including Monmouthshire) towards the expense of the International Eisteddfod. I should like to begin by explaining briefly the history of the International Eisteddfod. The International Eisteddfod is not a branch of the National Eisteddfod of Wales, nor are the two...

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod Bill (Changed from International Eisteddfod Bill). (16 Jun 1967)

Mr James Jones: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. The Bill has been explained in the House and in Committee. It gives local authorities permissive powers to help this unique institution, the International Musical Eisteddfod, which was born out of the adversities of the Second World War. I am very proud that, for a week, the Principality is the home of between 25 and 30 nations for...

Business of the House (20 Jul 1967)

Mr James Jones: It would not happen.

Welsh Affairs (30 Nov 1967)

Mr James Jones: I listened to the right hon. Member for Flint, West (Mr. Birch) with interest, but regretted that he is no nearer the conception of planning now than he was 13 or 14 years ago. He spoke of the spreading of margarine. Unfortunately, when his Administration ended, what we had was a little margarine on pinpoints, which did not mean a thing. Whatever may be the objection to the Government White...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Meat Imports) (13 Mar 1968)

Mr James Jones: There can be no doubt that there are hon. Members on both sides of the House and people outside who have misgivings about the lifting of the ban on Argentine beef. This is natural in view of the recent foot-and-mouth epidemic which swept over large areas of England and Wales, creating problems for farmers and involving the nation in heavy financial loss. Stocks have had to be destroyed, and...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Meat Imports) (13 Mar 1968)

Orders of the Day — Supply: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Meat Imports) (13 Mar 1968)

Mr James Jones: I will proceed with my argument in my own way. If by some process the hon. and learned Gentleman obtained information involving my division, why in the first instance, as other hon. Members would have done, did he not consult me about it?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Meat Imports) (13 Mar 1968)

Mr James Jones: The hon. and learned Gentleman may argue, as he has done, that this is a national and not a constituency matter. That is exactly the argument he used regarding the Aberavon Steelworks on 19th December, 1963.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Meat Imports) (13 Mar 1968)

Mr James Jones: And Brecon and Radnor, and the argument he used when he interfered with the Pentre Maelor Estate in my constituency a few years ago. It was only last Monday that the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) intervened at Question Time and said: Would not the Parliamentary Secretary confirm that it is contrary to the practice and custom of the House for hon. Members to put down Questions...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Meat Imports) (13 Mar 1968)

Mr James Jones: I never eat meat. I am a vegetarian. I have gone into this case in some detail, not only because I am anxious to restore the reputation of the borough authority of Wrexham which has been tarnished by this unfortunate publicity, but because our experience can suggest what might be done to mitigate the misgivings of those who are hesitant about lifting the ban on Argentine beef. To my mind...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Exercise of Functions of Commission in Wales and Monmouthshire. (9 Apr 1968)

Mr James Jones: No one will say that I am a separatist. I am certainly not a political nationalist, although I am a cultural nationalist because I want to preserve all the things that I regard as important for Wales. I must admit, therefore, that I am rather unhappy about new Clause 18. After all, there is an established tradition between Whitehall and Wales in certain functions. For example, we have the...

Orders of the Day — Sunday Entertainments Bill (26 Apr 1968)

Mr James Jones: My Amendment No. 30, in page 4, line 41, Clause 9, after 'to', insert 'Wales and Monmouthshire'—relates to Wales. Is there any reason why it is not to be called?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Public Appointments (2 May 1968)

Mr James Jones: Is my right hon. Friend aware that this matter has been thoroughly considered in the Welsh Grand Committee and on the Floor of the House in connection with the validity of the Welsh language? Is he also aware that highest posts in the academic sector in Wales are held at present by persons who are unable to speak Welsh?

Clause 2.: Sports and Games Where Payment is Made by Spectators. (3 May 1968)

Mr James Jones: I want to draw special attention to Amendment No. 18, which has particular reference to Wales and Monmouthshire. I raise this matter because of the differences which exist between Wales and England in respect of religious services. In England the most popular service is that which takes place in the morning; the Welsh tradition is quite the opposite. Most members of congregations try to...

Czechoslovakia (26 Aug 1968)

Mr James Jones: Will the hon. Gentleman explain in what way we are denied freedom in Wales?

Wales (15 Oct 1968)

Mr James Jones: I congratulate the hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Fred Evans) for his interesting maiden speech, which we all enjoyed, a speech which was typical of a secondary school headmaster. I look forward very much to hearing him in the future. I also thank my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for his speech, which covered the whole of Wales, exactly as such a speech should. Every area has its...

Wales (15 Oct 1968)

Mr James Jones: I share my hon. Friends' delight at having the Opposition represented on the benches opposite once more in the person of the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr.Hooson). [An HON. MEMBER: "The alternative Government."] No, that idea has gone for all time. I come now to two specific points regarding training. First, I mention the Ministry of Defence facilities which are now being used...

Clause 1: Voting Age (26 Nov 1968)

Mr James Jones: I was a member of Mr. Speaker's Conference from the beginning to the end and I attended every meeting. My right hon. and hon. Friends who were my colleagues will know that I had misgivings from the very beginning about reducing the age of voting to 18. I do not view this problem from a party political angle. It was not up to me to decide whether the voting age should be reduced for the sake...
