National Health Service Contributions Bill and National Health Service Bill (Allocation of Time) (6 Mar 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I can assure the hon. and learned Gentleman that they were mighty Bills. They changed the commercial face of the country substantially. I remember only too well sitting for very long hours and then the Bills being subjected to the Guillotine at the end. The Leader of the Opposition was not quite right in saying that the long hours we have been sitting in the past few weeks are welcomed in...

National Health Service Contributions Bill and National Health Service Bill (Allocation of Time) (6 Mar 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I want to continue, because I do not propose to go into the subject of points of order at great length. I want to refer to the point raised by the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Manuel) at 12.30 a.m. The hon. Member mentioned that some of the interview rooms were being used by recumbent sleepers. Points of order arising out of that initial point of order, which was a bogus one, carried...

National Health Service Contributions Bill and National Health Service Bill (Allocation of Time) (6 Mar 1961)

Sir John Barlow: No, I do not agree with the hon. Member. The point I am referring to was raised at 12.30 a.m. The Deputy-Chairman ruled it out of order, but in spite of that many other hon. Members raised further points of order on what was a bogus point of order to begin with. Both sides of the House must face that and deal with it. That sort of thing cannot go on indefinitely. Near the end of his speech...

National Health Service Contributions Bill and National Health Service Bill (Allocation of Time) (6 Mar 1961)

Sir John Barlow: Does the hon. Gentleman suggest that that point of order was not a bogus one and that there were not other ways of raising the matter?

Orders of the Day — Export Trade (22 Feb 1961)

Sir John Barlow: In view of the very short time available, I feel sure the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, South (Mr. Ellis Smith) will not wish me to follow him in any detail. We are all grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Louth (Mr. C. Osborne) for raising this important question tonight. We hear too little of it in this House of Commons. I should like to emphasise a most important point which he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Charollais Bulls (Terrington Report) (8 Dec 1960)

Sir John Barlow: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has now decided to allow the importation of Charollais bulls into this country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Charollais Bulls (Terrington Report) (8 Dec 1960)

Sir John Barlow: Is my right hon. Friend aware that that Answer will be received with great appreciation by progressive cattle breeders in this country? Knowing the care which my right hon. Friend's Ministry takes to prevent the importation of disease, may I ask whether he can indicate when he hopes to be able to implement his decision?

Orders of the Day — Motor Industry (6 Dec 1960)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Gentleman suggested that the Government ought to do a great deal more to help the sale of cars in the European market. He passed over that rather lightly. Would he be more explicit and suggest what the Government could usefully do?

Orders of the Day — Betting Levy Bill (5 Dec 1960)

Sir John Barlow: I am very glad to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Southend, East (Mr. McAdden) because I rather disagree with him. It seems to me that in a Bill of this kind it would be a great mistake to write in a maximum figure. There are so many unknown imponderable things in the Bill. We do not know in the very least how it will work out; we do not know whether perhaps greater amenities or lower...

Orders of the Day — Betting Levy Bill (5 Dec 1960)

Sir John Barlow: Yes, that is true, but I feel that the present proposals of the Home Secretary are likely to work pretty well. Perhaps it is not so well known that the Racecourse Totalisator Charity Trust contributes a good deal of money to other bodies than thoroughbred breeders directly to help horse breeding in this country. For example, last year it gave £4,000 to the Olympic Games and International...

Orders of the Day — Foot-and-Mouth Disease (29 Nov 1960)

Sir John Barlow: We are all most grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Sir A. Hurd) for bringing up this very important subject which is such a scourge to agriculture in this country at the moment. There are really only two things which occur to me tonight. In view of the importance of this matter to agriculture and to cattle breeders as a whole, I am somewhat disappointed, although we have the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Aviation: London Airport (21 Nov 1960)

Sir John Barlow: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that it would much more satisfactory to run it on the lines of Manchester Airport at Ringway, which, I understand, is both efficient and economic?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Non-Voting Ordinary Shares (10 Nov 1960)

Sir John Barlow: Is my right hon. Friend aware that in certain circumstances shares with non-voting rights perform a useful function and that it would be unfortunate if they were abolished? After all, no one needs to buy them unless he wishes to do so.

Oral Answers to Questions — Malaya: End of Emergency (28 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: asked the Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations whether he will make a statement on the military and other assistance given by the United Kingdom in bringing to an end the emergency in the Federation of Malaya.

Oral Answers to Questions — Malaya: End of Emergency (28 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: While thanking my right hon. Friend for the statement that he has made, may I ask him whether he would agree that the rubber planters and tin miners, together with their wives, made a very notable contribution during the whole of the emergency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Committee of Inquiry (Appointment) (13 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: asked the Postmaster-General if he is yet in a position to make a statement on the problems connected with television and sound broadcasting which will call for decisions before the expiry of the British Broadcasting Corporation licence and the Television Act.

Sound and Television Broadcasting (Committee of Inquiry) (13 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on acquiring the services of such a competent chairman in a difficult matter of this kind. At first sight, the terms of reference may appear a little complicated, but they are so important that I feel sure that they are likely to be satisfactory. Will my right hon. Friend accept that we all regard ourselves as very fortunate in having the services of such a...

Cotton Industry (Reorganisation) (12 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to speak for very long at this hour, but these are very important Orders for many people in Lancashire. I welcome the explanation which my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary has given of these very complicated documents. It was a thorough explanation, given very lucidly and in a very short time. Likewise, I welcome the questions put by the hon. Member for Farnworth IMr....

Cotton Industry (Reorganisation) (12 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: Earlier than that.

Cotton Industry (Reorganisation) (12 Jul 1960)

Sir John Barlow: I think I am right in saying that the offer was made some time before the redundancy terms were issued. I suggest that to the hon. Gentleman just to keep the matter clear.
