Orders of the Day — Club, Capel Curig (Planning Appeal) (1 Dec 1959)

Mr James Jones: It is winter now.

Orders of the Day — Local Employment Bill (2 Dec 1959)

Mr James Jones: I will not detain the Committee for very long. Rural depopulation has been a problem since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and it will continue as long as we allow economic and geographical factors to control the location of industry. As the right hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) said, depopulation in Wales have been very marked. Paradoxical as it may seem,...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (10 Feb 1960)

Mr James Jones: It is a great privilege to congratulate the hon. Member for Clapham (Dr. Glyn) on his maiden speech. I can assure him that it is never easy to speak in this Chamber. After being a Member of Parliament for several years now, I still find it a very difficult thing to do, but after listening to him I assure him that we shall all look forward to hearing him speak on other topics in the future....

Orders of the Day — Supply: Local Employment Areas (23 Feb 1960)

Mr James Jones: I shall confine my observations entirely to the Wrexham division, a division which I have known from my childhood, in which I have lived all my life, which I know very well, which I have the honour to represent and which is one of the casualties of this legislation. I have to inform the House that there is a very bitter feeling in Wrexham which arises from a keen sense of disappointment....

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Mr James Jones: The Crowther Report is one of the outstanding education documents of the century. It brings to light in a concise form the nature of the educational structure provided for boys and girls between 15 and 18 years of age. It reveals in a striking manner the yawning gaps in the structure —indeed, so yawning are the gaps that there seems to be hardly any structure at all. It is to that aspect of...

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Mr James Jones: I want every boy and girl to have an equal opportunity, and the best opportunity that we can provide. That is the main purpose of my observations. There is at present a tendency for the secondary modern school to introduce the General Certificate of Education examination, and I very much regret it. It tends to gloss over a certain weakness in our educational system, and I would rather expose...

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Mr James Jones: Does the hon. Member expect more than about 5 per cent. of the children in the secondary modern schools to make a reasonable performance in the G.C.E. examination?

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (9 May 1960)

Mr James Jones: We had an interesting and valuable as well as a necessary debate on primary education. It is necessary because we have had so many discussions and read so much in the Press about secondary education. I am not suggesting for a moment that we have heard enough about secondary education, because there is much leeway to be made up. As has been pointed out so often in this debate, the basis of...

Economic Situation (11 Jul 1960)

Mr James Jones: I followed the speech of the hon. Member for Belfast, East (Mr. McMaster) with interest. Some of the points which he made might well have been made from this side of the Committee. I was interested in his theory of the localisation of industry. There is no doubt that a case can be made for hire purchase, and we can certainly make a case for Wales just as he made one for Northern Ireland. But...

Orders of the Day — Medical Appeals, Wrexham (24 Nov 1960)

Mr James Jones: On 7th November, in answer to a Question which I tabled to the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance with regard to the decisions of the Medical Appeal Tribunal, I was told that in Wales, of 1,518 appeals submitted, only 577, just over one-third, had decisions favourable to the claimants. I would have liked to know how many had less favourable decisions as the result of their appeals,...

Orders of the Day — Medical Appeals, Wrexham (24 Nov 1960)

Mr James Jones: This is an extraordinary record for two reasons. So far as I know, there is no record in the hospital report that the man had had a splash of concrete mixture in his eye, but there is a record of his having suffered from influenza. However, the fact is that he had not suffered from influenza, nor had he lost a day's work between the date of the accident and that of his admission to hospital....

Orders of the Day — Medical Appeals, Wrexham (24 Nov 1960)

Mr James Jones: My information from the gentleman himself is that he had the accident on a certain day and from that day on until the date of his admission to hospital he did not lose a single day from work. I suggest that anyone who had had influenza could not have carried on with his daily work in that way.

Orders of the Day — Licensing Bill (28 Nov 1960)

Mr James Jones: Would my hon. Friend tell the House how, from his part of the constituency, he can see people crossing the border of Monmouthshire?

Orders of the Day — Licensing Bill (28 Nov 1960)

Mr James Jones: True.

Orders of the Day — Licensing Bill (29 Nov 1960)

Mr James Jones: I am very pleased to see the Minister for Welsh Affairs in his place, because I want to make a very serious and, possibly, final appeal in this debate. I listened to his speech last night with very great attention and interest and I have read his speech today in HANSARD, but I still feel very unconvinced. He agreed that there was a deep feeling in Wales that our Sunday Closing Act should...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (19 Apr 1961)

Mr James Jones: I listened with interest to the speech of the hon. Lady the Member for Finchley (Mrs. Thatcher), which was very well informed, but I hope that she will pardon me if I do not follow her arguments. I want to describe to the Committee the impressions left on me when I listened to the Chancellor on Monday. There were moments in his speech when we all thought that we were being led up to a new and...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (19 Apr 1961)

Mr James Jones: That is the general impression. Although our economy is sick, it does occasionally rally to make a small balance, but as soon as it rallies a little it is subjected to a lethargic inoculation. We know what that is. It is high interest rates which stupefy, but, by some strange alchemy, that which stupefies the economy is tonic to the financiers of the world. It is true that the economy is...

Orders of the Day — Licensing Bill: Clause 6. — (Sunday Closing in Wales and Monmouthshire.) (6 Jun 1961)

Mr James Jones: I should like to point out to my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda, West (Mr. Iorwerth Thomas) that many Acts prior to 1884 were passed on minority votes, including the Reform Act, the Factories Acts, and the Education Act of 1870. There is therefore no validity in the argument that the Sunday Closing (Wales) Act, 1881, was passed on a minority vote. My hon. Friend challenged the motive...

Orders of the Day — Licensing Bill: Clause 6. — (Sunday Closing in Wales and Monmouthshire.) (6 Jun 1961)

Mr James Jones: Would a major, democratic, political party change its political policy on a small majority vote? I come from Wales, and I now speak from knowledge of Wales. The chapels of Wales are democratic in their constitution. The members would not consider calling a minister to a church on a mere majority of members; they would want a substantial vote, and a substantial majority. That is as much a...

Orders of the Day — Licensing Bill (21 Jun 1961)

Mr James Jones: What about Wales and Sunday opening?
