Orders of the Day — Clause 4. — (Written Particulars of Terms of Employment.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I will be very pleased to follow the suggestion of the hon. Member for East Ham, North (Mr. Prentice). That was my intention. We want to ensure that as much lay language as possible is used.

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Power to Vary Number of Weekly Hours of Employment Necessary to Qualify for Rights.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. The Bill at present applies only to employees who normally work for their employers 21 hours or more a week. In our earlier discussions, I said that that was so that the Bill should benefit those who depend on that employment for at least a substantial part of their livelihood, and and that inconsiderable and...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Power to Vary Number of Weekly Hours of Employment Necessary to Qualify for Rights.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: With the leave of the House, I can tell the hon. Member for East Ham, North (Mr. Prentice) that this Amendment goes some way to please him, and provides the flexibility which he felt was lacking before. My hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page) will appreciate that Schedule 1 already works retrospectively, because employment engaged in before the Bill comes into force will...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 2. — (Rights of Employee in Period of Notice.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. It would be convenient also to take the Lords Amendments: In line 8, after first "hours" insert: (in this paragraph referred to as 'the number of hours without overtime') and in line 8, at end insert: (2) If in such a case— (a) the contract of employment fixes the number, or the minimum number, of hours of...

Clause 1. — (Premises to Which This Act Applies.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. Perhaps it would be convenient if, with this Amendment, we discussed the subsequent Amendments in line 37, to leave out "and", and in line 40, at end insert: (d) 'dock storage premises' means fuel storage premises which constitute or are comprised in premises to which certain provisions of the Factories Act 1961...

Clause 5. — (Overcrowding.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. During the Committee stage there was considerable discussion on an Amendment moved by the hon. Member for Sheffield, Park (Mr. Mulley) which would have required inspectors to take into account space occupied by furniture, furnishings, fittings and machines in determining whether the standard of 40 sq. ft. per...

Clause 13. — (Sitting Facilities.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. The provision of seats in shops for shop assistants was debated at some length when I introduced a new Clause about sitting facilities on the Report stage. As the hon. Member for Ogmore (Mr. Padley) forecast, the Opposition returned to this subject in another place. It was argued that some employers might locate...

Clause 18. — (Avoidance of Exposure of Young Persons to Danger in Cleaning Machinery.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This Amendment anticipates the two following Amendments which delete the references to young persons in Clause 19. Since the term "young person" will then appear only in. Clause 18, it is desirable for drafting reasons to transfer the definition from Clause 88 to Clause 18. This Amendment therefore puts the...

Clause 29. — (Certification of Premises by Appropriate Authority.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. I think that it would be for the convenience of the House also to discuss the consequential Amendments in page 22, line 23, and in line 24. These Amendments are designed to improve the procedure relating to fire certificates. Under Clause 29(5,a) as it left this House, a fire authority was required to specify in...

Clause 45. — (Power of the Minister to Grant Exemptions from Certain Requirements of Act.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. The purpose of this Amendment is to enable the Minister to exempt classes of rooms from the requirements of Clauses 5(2) and 6, which deal with space and temperature, by orders under Clause 45. The effect of the Amendment is to make the power of exemption more selective, since we think that there may well be...

Clause 45. — (Power of the Minister to Grant Exemptions from Certain Requirements of Act.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: If I might have the leave of the House to reply, the hon. Gentleman said that this would be interpreted in one of two ways, one favourable to his way of thinking, and one unfavourable. I give the assurance that it will be interpreted favourably to his way of thinking. The power of exemption will become more selective.

Clause 52. — (Authorities Who are to Enforce Act.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. On further consideration the Government came to the conclusion that the arrangements for enforcement in Clause 52 would result in a confusing division of responsibility for enforcement in office and shop premises, in schools maintained under the Education Act. Subsection (3) provided that the Factory Inspectorate...

Clause 52. — (Authorities Who are to Enforce Act.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This Amendment was made in order to provide that enforcement of the Bill in fuel storage premises on land owned by the railways should be carried out by the Factory Inspectorate. We think that this is a good arrangement, which should make for economy in administration, because factory inspectors will be enforcing...

New Clause. — (Protection for Local Authorities' Inspectors.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I think that the hon. Member for East Ham, North (Mr. Prentice) recognises that his last expression of hope was rather optimistic. I listened with the greatest possible care, as I always do, to the hon. and learned Member for Derby, South (Mr. MacDermot). He pointed out that this Amendment was moved by a noble Lord in another place who, I think, moved the Amendment with the perfectly honest...

Clause 58. — (Restriction of Disclosure of Information.) (26 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. When this House discussed this Clause, both in Committee and on Report, it was argued on both sides that the restriction imposed by Clause 58 on inspectors concerning the disclosure of information in civil proceedings not pursuant to the Bill, might work unfairly; for example, it would not have allowed an...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Young Persons) (24 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I certainly do not object in any way to the sentiment with which the hon. Member for East Ham, North (Mr. Prentice) ended up, that we should take the offensive with change. Where I probably have some quarrel with him is that he has painted a graver picture of the prospects of unemployment for young people than I would perhaps agree with. That is why I thought it right to intervene at an early...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Young Persons) (24 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I am not being dishonest. The hon. Member may make his own speech in any way he likes. I intend to make my speech on the basis of figures which are entirely accurate. Even at that difficult period—mid-January—the absorption of school leavers into employment was still easier than might have been expected. Even in Scotland, in spite of the general unemployment situation there, which was a...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Young Persons) (24 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I can give the hon. Gentleman details of that if he will give me notice; I am talking now of industry as a whole. But even in the worsening unemployment situation of last Autumn, about nine out of every ten of those available for employment had found jobs by the end of the summer holiday in September, and about 99 out of every 100 by December. This year, in contrast to last year, the trend of...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Young Persons) (24 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: If the hon. Member will allow me to continue with my speech I will answer his query. I agree that we want to make the Service better. The hon. Member for East Ham, North and I disagree rather on whether, at this stage, it should be expanded to deal with boys and girls over the age of 18. I want to improve the facilities it has for those under 18. I think that now that the peak of the bulge is...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Young Persons) (24 Jul 1963)

Mr John Hare: I have said that I do not ignore the problems of Wales but that, due to the structural nature of unemployment in Scotland and the North-East, they present particular problems in the long-term. This, then, is the present situation. The Government are tackling it with two broad sets of measures. The first are those designed to increase training opportunities for young people and the second ...
