Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Welsh Book Grant (9 Dec 1965)

Mr James Jones: Is my hon. Friend aware that his statement will be very welcome indeed in publishing circles in Wales, particularly since the former Government had decided to discontinue the grant in March of this year?

Mr James Jones: asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has received the Council for Wales' Report on the Arts in Wales; and when he will publish it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Arts in Wales (Report) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr James Jones: I thank my hon. Friend for the decision to publish the Report, which we look forward to reading. Can he say whether it includes recommendations to encourage local drama and music societies in the Principality?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Housing (Completed Dwellings) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr James Jones: asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many dwellings are likely to be built this year in Wales; and what the housing programme is likely to be in the next five years.

Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Mr James Jones: By a strange coincidence, I have the privilege once again of following the hon. Member for Southgate (Mr. Berry). It is nearly 40 years since the publication of the Hadow Report on the Education of the Adolescent, and we are still waiting for a sound system of universal secondary education. Twenty years have gone since the 1944 Act and it is time that the country made up its mind on this...

Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Mr James Jones: I am sorry, but the hon. Gentleman does not know the facts. The position in Wales is better than that in England. When I am championing the cause of secondary schools, I am championing the cause of these schools in England much more than in Wales. We have also laboured under a mistaken educational theory in the same period. We have sought to divide children into two types, academic and...

Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Mr James Jones: As one who has been in the schools, I think that I know what I am talking about.

Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Mr James Jones: But I do. Today, the grammar schools prepare their pupils for the G.C.E. The pupils who do not make the grade will in the future prepare for the Certificate of Secondary Education. The secondary modern schools are also preparing their pupils for the G.C.E. and the C.S.E. The result is that the middle wall of partition between these two types of school is being eroded. There is only one...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development Bill (16 May 1966)

Mr James Jones: I welcome the Bill most sincerely, because it is a Measure to organise the resources of the country and to bring some hope to the older industrial areas. When I listened to the right hon. Member for Altrincham and Sale (Mr. Barber) I was sorry that I did not hear very much about development areas. We heard the usual clich├ęs about profitability and that sort of thing. We on these benches are...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development Bill (16 May 1966)

Mr James Jones: We shall see whether it is nonsense. There were movements of people into the Midlands. That meant the finding of new social capital for new offices, schools, houses, market places, and petrol stations. Social capital had to be built, but social capital which was in the older areas was not allowed to be used to the full capacity. Our resources were used to build new social capital at a time...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development Bill (16 May 1966)

Mr James Jones: Yes, at pinpoints in the country, provided that there was a small deep pocket of unemployment. That was why Wrexham could not get the grants. It is now a development area. Because it is a development area, it will be able to get a grant under this Measure. Small factories will be able to come to the villages. We shall have large factories as well. As a result, there will be diversification...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Forms and Documents (Welsh Language) (21 Jul 1966)

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Forms and Documents (Welsh Language) (21 Jul 1966)

Mr James Jones: I appreciate the complexity of this matter, involving as it does the mass of legislation passed since the Act of Union of 1542, but can my right hon. Friend give us any information about when this legislation is likely to be introduced?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales (Independent Parliament) (4 Aug 1966)

Mr James Jones: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the people of Wales have not yet expressed their desire for a Parliament for Wales? Is he aware that, when the last petition in favour of a Parliament for Wales was submitted to Parliament, less than 10 per cent. of the people of Wales had signed it, and that, of the Welsh electorate, less than 13 per cent. had signed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Coaltips and Disused Collieries (3 Nov 1966)

Mr James Jones: asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied that he has sufficient legal powers to compel the owners of coaltips to have these tips periodically examined with a view to maintaining them in a safe condition; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Coaltips and Disused Collieries (3 Nov 1966)

Wales (Trade and Industry) (14 Nov 1966)

Mr James Jones: I listened with interest to the hon. Member for Ludlow (Mr. More), because he represents a constituency which might very well have been the capital of Wales. In that case, he would have been a Member for Wales. Many striking statements have been made this afternoon. The hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson) asked what about Wales of the future. That is what we are talking...

Wales (Trade and Industry) (14 Nov 1966)

Mr James Jones: My attitude is very simple. It may appear paradoxical. In the first place I regard Wales as a nation. I regard the people living within the geographical boundaries of Wales as forming the Welsh nation. Whether they speak Welsh or not, they belong to the Welsh nation. So when such people cross the Border it is a serious loss to the Welsh nation. My second point is that people will live where...
