Debate on the Address: First Day (27 Oct 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I feel sure that the hon. Member for Glasgow, Govan (Mr. Rankin) will not expect me to comment on his speech in great detail. I agree with a great deal of what he said, and especially with his moderate remarks delivered with so much knowledge of the aircraft and shipping industries which today face great difficulties. Recently it was my experience to consider some of these problems. One of...

Debate on the Address: First Day (27 Oct 1959)

Sir John Barlow: If motorists were prevented from parking on roads they would very soon use those facilities. I leave my car on the road—not in London, but in my provincial town—but I feel that the practice should be stopped for the good of motorists as a whole, or the situation will become impossible. Another matter which was not mentioned directly in the Gracious Speech nevertheless undoubtedly arises...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Pharmaceutical Industry (Metric System) (28 Jul 1959)

Sir John Barlow: While thanking my hon. Friend for his Answer, may I ask whether he suggests that the metric system will now be introduced over a wider field in industry?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Industrial Property Conference, Lisbon (28 Jul 1959)

Cotton Industry (Reorganisation Schemes) (21 Jul 1959)

Sir John Barlow: All hon. Members on this side of the House who represent Lancashire constituencies welcome these Statutory Instruments and the speed with which they have been made. Many of us have pressed for a long time for some such measure as this to be taken for the cotton industry. Many of us foresaw two possibilities. One was an organised reduction such as the Scheme we have before us, and the other...

Cotton Industry (Reorganisation Schemes) (21 Jul 1959)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Member says "Not very hard", but perhaps he does not know how some of us have been pressing for it for a very long time. At last, we are achieving something substantial, and I congratulate my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade and the Government on doing it with such speed.

Cotton Industry (Reorganisation Schemes) (21 Jul 1959)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Gentleman referred to Mr. Winterbottom's important speech at Harrogate in which he suggested that the number of spindles should be reduced far more than is proposed as the minimum quantity here. Does the hon. Gentleman realise that at the present time Mr. Winterbottom is fully behind this Scheme and is satisfied that it has a reasonable chance of success?

Underdeveloped Areas (20 Jul 1959)

Sir John Barlow: Do those figures which the right hon. Gentleman gave include private investment as well as public investment?

Underdeveloped Areas (20 Jul 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to follow in great detail the speech of the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale). He traversed very wide fields, discussing canals, Chinese eggs, gold mines, juggernauts of industrial machines, the Aswan Dam and so on. It was such a wide canvas that I wondered when he was coming to the groundnut scheme, but he omitted that altogether. I am glad that I am speaking fairly...

Orders of the Day — Calf Subsidies (25 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I listened with very great interest to the speech of the hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey), with some of which I agreed. I should be much more convinced, however, if he had a greater farming following behind him on the Opposition benches. So far as I can see, there is a complete absence of farming following there, which is not very good in view of the comparatively crowded...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry Bill: Clause 1. — (Schemes in Connection with Elimination of Excess Capacity.) (23 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to keep the House for very long, but I should like to say a few words since this is a Bill of importance to the north-western part of England and to Lancashire in particular. The hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) laid great a stress on the fact that the Bill is a supreme challenge to the cotton industry. In that, I agree with him entirely. This is a method which has been...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry Bill: Clause 1. — (Schemes in Connection with Elimination of Excess Capacity.) (23 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I was coming to that. They have been pointed out by the hon. Member for Sowerby and they are most important. I am referring to the schemes to which the Board of Trade will subsequently agree. The different sections of the industry and the Board of Trade will have to agree on something which will eventually result in an efficient industry. Otherwise, the whole scheme will be a complete flop....

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Distribution of Industry (Middleton) (16 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether Middleton, Lancashire, is included in the list of places for which financial assistance is currently available under the 1958 Distribution of Industry (Industrial Finance) Act.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Distribution of Industry (Middleton) (16 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, in view of this omission to include the name of Middleton in the past, may I ask whether he will do all he can to bring it to the attention of suitable manufacturers in the future?

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry Bill (4 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I am very glad to follow the hon. Member for Rossendale (Mr. Anthony Greenwood), who has just made what I consider to be a not very helpful speech. To me, it was rather disappointing. In the middle of his speech, the hon. Gentleman asked—this was his one important point—whether the scheme will work. That is what we are all asking. The hon. Gentleman will not help the scheme to work if he...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry Bill (4 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I do not accept that. I did not say anything about blackmail. I said that the scheme required the co-operation of both sides, otherwise it could not work.

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry Bill (4 Jun 1959)

Sir John Barlow: I meant that it required the co-operation of both sides. I think there are good indications that it is receiving that co-operation. Either side could scuttle it, but I am very hopeful that both sides will have sufficient vision to see that it is a good scheme for the industry as a whole. I am very hopeful that something good may come out of it. It is perhaps unnecessary for me to tell the...
