Orders of the Day — 5. Tax Rebates for Exports (11 Nov 1964)

Mr James Jones: —about this autumn Budget that it is not a new thing. In the story of post-war Governments we have had several autumn Budgets after a General Election. We had one after the 1955 election and after the 1959 election. There is nothing exceptional in the procedure. Had the election been won by the party opposite, no doubt there would have been a Budget introduced this afternoon by a Tory...

Orders of the Day — 5. Tax Rebates for Exports (11 Nov 1964)

Mr James Jones: No, I cannot give way. The hon. Member had his time and now I want mine. As the Bank Rate rose so did the financial burden of the Treasury and the burden of local government expenditure. So did the burden on the ordinary household. Each decision to raise the Bank Rate, to apply the credit squeeze and monetary techniques, distilled itself through the entire economy, and successive Chancellors...

Orders of the Day — 5. Tax Rebates for Exports (11 Nov 1964)

Mr James Jones: The Bank Rate was raised, which increased the cost of living. Prices were increased with nothing in return. Health charges were increased, which meant a charge of £63 million more on people who could not afford it because they were ill. It meant at the same time £82 million as a gift to Surtax payers. Those were the prices. The post-election Budgets were prices without a meal. They were...

Orders of the Day — 5. Tax Rebates for Exports (11 Nov 1964)

Mr James Jones: The economic situation would have been made use of by a Tory Administration to increase charges of some kind or another. [HON. MEMBERS: "How does the hon. Gentleman know?"] The present Chancellor has remembered these people in the days of drab inheritance. The drab inheritance is due to the Government who went out of office at the General Election. It is time to remember these people who have...

Orders of the Day — Education (Comprehensive System and Grammar Schools) (21 Jan 1965)

Mr James Jones: It is an almost unique experience to follow three maiden speakers, but it is my great pleasure to do so on this occasion. I listened with great interest to the speech of the hon. Member for Harrow, Central (Mr. Grant). Harrow, of course, is a very interesting place. It has a public school, but I was glad to hear that it has secondary modern schools as well and that the hon. Gentleman had...

Orders of the Day — Education (Comprehensive System and Grammar Schools) (21 Jan 1965)

Mr James Jones: There was no streaming. There may have been some streaming in the hon. Member's school but not in mine. What I am saying now is this—

Orders of the Day — Education (Comprehensive System and Grammar Schools) (21 Jan 1965)

Mr James Jones: When I was there as a boy there was no streaming in that school. I know that, after 1945, streaming became the universal practice in our primary schools. There was an undue concentration on the bright boy. Not only that, but there was a tendency to concentrate less on the less bright boy, and the unfortunate position was that that less bright boy had been labelled with a certain I.Q. and it...

Orders of the Day — Education (Comprehensive System and Grammar Schools) (21 Jan 1965)

Mr James Jones: The point is that the right hon. and learned Gentleman said that the tripartite system had broken down. I do not know whether he will go further and say that the bipartite system has been a success. This is the question. I know that 90 out of 140 local education authorities have been altering the system in the last year. This is taking place in the light of 20 years' experience. If that is...

Wales (4 Nov 1965)

Mr James Jones: I do not propose to deal with every suggestion made by the right hon. Member for Flint, West (Mr. Birch), but perhaps I might recall the first meeting of the Welsh Grand Committee at which I had the privilege to be called to speak. I was followed by the right hon. Gentleman who taught me that I should not make a constituency speech in the Welsh Grand Committee. The chickens have now come home...

Wales (4 Nov 1965)

Mr James Jones: Under the old coal owners.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (25 Nov 1965)

Mr James Jones: When Bills of this nature are introduced in the House one is justified and, indeed, honour bound to examine them from the point of view of their effect upon one's own division. In the short time at my disposal I shall seek to do that. As most hon. Members know, the industrial development of the Wrexham area has been based upon the coal industry. It is the basic industry round which the...
