Bills Presented: Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland (Dissolution) (17 Dec 1963)

Sir John Barlow: Reference has been made in several quarters this evening to Sir Roy Welensky. Many of those in the House who know him would not wish this occasion to pass without saying that we have looked upon him as a great robust Commonwealth statesman. He has contributed much to that part of Africa in the past and we all hope that he will have a great contribution to make in the future, Men with such a...

Malaysia(Gut of a Speaker's Chair) (28 Nov 1963)

Friend the Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Turner) and myself to present on behalf of the House a Speaker's Chair to the House of Representatives of Malaysia....

Orders of the Day — Malaysia Bill (19 Jul 1963)

Sir John Barlow: There is one point that I want to deal with arising from the speech of the hon. Member for Eton and Slough (Mr. Brock way). I agree with him in deploring the speed with which the Bill has been brought to the House, and also the fact that it should be discussed on a Friday, when so few Members are present, and rushed through all its stages in one day. Nevertheless, things having gone as far as...

Orders of the Day — Malaysia Bill (19 Jul 1963)

Sir John Barlow: I am much obliged to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. I should like to make it quite clear that while I regard the Borneo territories as backward politically and in general development compared with Malaya and Singapore, I think that in the present circumstances it is undoubtedly the right thing for them to be part of Malaysia as perhaps they will need every help.

Textile Industry (1 Jul 1963)

Sir John Barlow: Many Members wish to speak on this important subject tonight, and, for that reason, I shall try to curtail my remarks. So many Members obviously wish to say very much the same thing, and therefore one should shorten one's speech. I am very glad to follow the hon. Member for Farnworth (Mr. Thornton). We in the industry have a great respect for his knowledge of the cotton industry and, while I...

Textile Industry (1 Jul 1963)

Sir John Barlow: So do I. The cotton industry, the oldest great industry in this country, has been the best organised and the most economic in its day and has provided relatively more exports than any other industry in this country at any other time. People nowadays so often fail to remember the size of the industry about 50 years ago, when it was producing something like 8,000 million yards of cloth a year...

Textile Industry (1 Jul 1963)

Sir John Barlow: Must we suppose, then, that every time my right hon. Friend comes to Manchester he will say very little and that no appreciable advance will be made towards doing something for the industry?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 43. — (Overseas Trade Corporations: Holding Companies.) (23 May 1963)

Sir John Barlow: In view of my hon. Friend's explanation—which is not entirely satisfactory, but I appreciate some of the difficulties—I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 43. — (Overseas Trade Corporations: Holding Companies.) (23 May 1963)

Sir John Barlow: I welcome this Clause and regard it as a long-lost friend—so long-lost that it has almost been forgotten. In June, 1957, the then Economic Secretary, turning down this proposal, said that it …raises extremely complex…points… my right hon. Friend… is studying this matter with full sympathy…we are giving this very complex and difficult problem sympathetic consideration."—[OFFICIAL...

Freedom from Hunger Campaign (20 Mar 1963)

Sir John Barlow: I confess that at the beginning of this debate I had not intended to speak, but as so many of the speeches are so near my heart I feel impelled to do so. I have told the House before of my interests in tropical agriculture in different parts of the world, and for that reason this debate particularly appeals to me, because we find that so much of the poverty of the world exists in the...

Freedom from Hunger Campaign (20 Mar 1963)

Sir John Barlow: I hope that my reference has been quite sufficient to prove my point. The hon. Member for East Ham, South referred to the difficulty about prices. Many of these tropical countries have developed two or three commodities, such as rubber, tin and cocoa, from which they have specially benefited and which they can produce very efficiently. This has meant that the whole of the economy of these...

Housing Land (Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester) (19 Feb 1963)

Sir John Barlow: On the question of the development of Manchester, is my right hon. Friend aware that all three suggestions relate to the south of the city?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance [Money]: Egypt (Compensation Payments) (5 Feb 1963)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to go into the matter at length tonight because my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley (Mr. Hirst) has dealt with the background so adequately. It is very late, but this is a very important matter, and the principle of it is of the utmost importance. In accordance with the usage of the House, I declare an interest. I am a director of the Calico Printers Association, which has...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance [Money]: Egypt (Compensation Payments) (5 Feb 1963)

Sir John Barlow: My hon. Friend talks about the same treatment for the individual claimant as for the large claimant. The individual claimant gets full payment up to £10,000. The British American Tobacco Company has more than 12,000 people who are shareholders holding less than £200 each. Is it equity to treat the whole of the B.A.T.C. as an individual?
