BRITISH TRANSPORT DOCKS BILL (By Order) (28 Apr 1964)

Mr John Morrison: Will my hon. Friend read the next sentence?

Deer (England and Wales) Bill ( 8 Mar 1963)

Mr John Morrison: I do not wish to detain the House for more than a few moments. As my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Mr. Kimball) has explained, I have a connection with the society which originally sponsored this suggestion. I feel that I have no need to declare my interest as I am sure that my hon. Friends agree that it is a common interest and that on particular society wishes to claim the credit...

Orders of the Day — Army Reserve Bill: Clause 3. — (Reserve of Territorial Volunteers.) ( 1 Feb 1962)

Mr John Morrison: I had not intended to intervene in this debate, but, like my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Dorset, North (Sir Richard Glyn), I am still connected with the Territorial Army, and I want to support him in one thing he said. Purely from the administrative point of view, it may be a little more difficult to work, but where Territorials go from one unit to another, I think it will be very...

Orders of the Day — Army Reserve Bill: Clause 4. — (Provisions Supplemental to SS. 2 and 3.) ( 1 Feb 1962)

Mr John Morrison: Surely the right hon. and learned Gentleman has exaggerated his case, because one of the major canons of construction of a penal statute is that it should be construed restrictively.

Orders of the Day — Game Licences and Gun Licences (Miscellaneous Provisions), etc. Bill (10 Mar 1961)

Mr John Morrison: After the excellent way in which my hon. Friend the Member for Maldon (Mr. B. Harrison) moved the Second Reading of the Bill, and the blessings which it has received from all hon. Members who have spoken, there is not a great deal to be said. I must declare an interest. My hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Mr. Kimball) referred to the British Field Sports Society having had an...

Orders of the Day — Betting Levy Bill (20 Dec 1960)

Mr John Morrison: Briefly, I have an interest to declare. I have the same interest as my hon. Friend the Member for North Fylde (Mr. Stanley) as a breeder and owner of thoroughbreds and also as a member of the Jockey Club. Also, I have an interest in the breeding of horses of other kinds, including ponies, not thoroughbreds. I support my hon. and learned Friend the Under-Secretary in the way he has spoken of...

Orders of the Day — Second Schedule. — (Appeal Tribunals.) (20 Dec 1960)

Mr John Morrison: I hope that the misgivings of my hon. Friend the Member for Southend, East (Mr. McAdden) will prove to be unfounded. Having already declared my interest in the Bill, I wish merely to thank very sincerely the Home Secretary, the Minister of State and the Under-Secretary of State for all their very hard work in promoting and pushing through a Bill which I trust will be of lasting benefit to...

Orders of the Day — Betting Levy Bill: Clause 1. — (Establishment of Horserace Betting Levy Board.) (14 Dec 1960)

Mr John Morrison: The Animal Health Trust is not engaged entirely in dealing with horses.

CHARITIES BILL [Lords] (28 Apr 1960)

Mr John Morrison: Having served for a few years as Parliamentary spokesman for the Charity Commissioners, I am happy to have the chance to mention one or two things. Both my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary and the hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Leicester, North-East (Sir L. Ungoed-Thomas) have paid tribute to those who work on the Charity Commission, and I, too, should like to add my...

CHARITIES BILL [Lords] (28 Apr 1960)

Mr John Morrison: I am sorry. I misunderstood the hon. and learned Gentleman. That means, then, that in the debate so far there has been no criticism at all of the Charity Commission set-up. That is very gratifying, but, at the risk of being rather critical, if the Commission is going along very well as a concern, I cannot help asking my right hon. Friend, "Was your journey really necessary?" We have heard a...

CHARITIES BILL [Lords] (28 Apr 1960)

Mr John Morrison: If an hon. Member has a problem and has to take it to a Minister, it is bound to be more political than if he takes it to a back bencher, as at present.

Orders of the Day — Betting and Gaming Bill (16 Nov 1959)

Mr John Morrison: Before I turn to some of the remarks of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas), whose interventions we always so much enjoy, I think it would be right for me to declare my interest in the Bill. All my life I have been interested in horses, and I still continue to ride them whenever I can. However, as it is a good many years ago since I turned 12 st. 7 lb., on the...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 3 Feb 1959)

Mr John Morrison: I welcome the opportunity of saying a few words. I have not taken up a great deal of the time of the House during this Parliament. I must also say that it is the first time that I have ventured to say anything on a Bill which concerns Scotland only. It would be right that I should declare that I have interests as a farmer and proprietor in Scotland, and I am also, with the possible exception...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 3 Feb 1959)

Mr John Morrison: I was under the impression—the hon. and learned Member is a lawyer and I am not—that under the Access to the Mountains Act, people can, and do, walk anywhere.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Wessex Regional Hospital Board (16 Jun 1958)

Mr John Morrison: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that those on this side of the House are particularly grateful for his help in this matter, which has caused universal pleasure to all those concerned in the area?

Administrative Tribunals and Enquiries (Report) (31 Oct 1957)

Mr John Morrison: I am very glad that I have caught your eye, Mr. Speaker, I do not try to catch it very often and nobody can complain that I take up a great deal of the time of the Chamber. I speak as one of three hon. Members who sat on the Franks Committee, the only hon. Member from this side of the House. I speak, like the hon. Member for East Ham, North (Mr. Prentice), as a layman and not as a man of...

Orders of the Day — PESTS BILL [Lords]: Clause 12. — (Spreading of Myxomatosis.) (15 Nov 1954)

Mr John Morrison: I have not hitherto taken part in the debates on the Bill, and I do not intend to keep the House more than a brief moment. The Bill hinges on the question of myxomatosis and the provision of traps. I think the whole House agrees that we all thoroughly dislike myxomatosis, as do nearly all countrymen in the agricultural community. The future of the Bill depends upon the success of inventors of...

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr John Morrison: Before I say anything else, I want to say how deeply I regret the happenings of this afternoon, culminating in the Minister saying that he had tendered his resignation. Not only is he a personal friend of mine, but I believe that he is also a personal friend of many hon. and right hon. Members on both sides of the House and is acknowledged to be a good countryman in the best sense of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Allowance for Capital Expenditure on Farmhouse.) (29 Jun 1954)

Mr John Morrison: I should like to support the remarks made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Blackburn, West (Mr. Assheton). There is great importance in this comparatively small proposal. My hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Grinstead (Colonel Clarke) emphasised the position of the farming "ladder" and referred to the wives of the small farmers. As my right hon. Friend has said, this is a...

Home-Grown Timber (Marketing) (30 Apr 1954)

Mr John Morrison: I welcome the opportunity of supporting the Motion moved and seconded by my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Mr. Baldock) and my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Grinstead (Colonel Clarke) respectively. They have performed a very valuable service in raising the subject so soon after the Minister, in reply to a recent Question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East...
