Orders of the Day — Chile (28 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: I agree with my right hon. Friend the Minister of State and with the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer) that this is an exceedingly serious debate. I shall endeavour to give what I regard as the true facts of the situation and I shall also meet the constitutional arguments put forward by the Opposition. I hope my arguments will carry conviction. I have had the good fortune of...

Orders of the Day — Chile (28 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: The Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of what should or should not happen under the constitution. I had the opportunity of studying the Allende régime to a small extent. I went to a farm near Valparaiso which was in a perfectly shocking state. There was no doubt that agricultural production was dropping on almost every farm throughout Chile because the whole agricultural reform...

Orders of the Day — Chile (28 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: I knew that it was a mistake to give way to the hon. Gentleman, purely because that was exactly my next point. The situation was escalating towards civil war. I do not rely for my information on the Press. In those circumstances, it became known to those in the armed forces, and generally known afterwards, that there was something called the Z plan. That was referred to by my right hon....

Orders of the Day — Chile (28 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: No, I have given way several times already. I have spoken to a number of gentlemen who were mentioned in this plan. They and their families were listed for execution under the plan. Many high and other ranking officers would have been shot under the plan. The date for it to be pulled off was 16th September.

Orders of the Day — Chile (28 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: Some six days in advance of that plan the military, who have always been strictly non-political, took very swift, decisive and fairly violent action. But there was no doubt that their action was fully justified. I claim support and justification of that statement from the Right Rev. David Pytches, the Bishop of Chile, who gave a very sensible and balanced interview on our radio on 28th...

Orders of the Day — Chile (28 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: Up to 23rd November, 1,078 people were killed, including 60 military personnel. Returning to my friend who was caught in the crossfire, naturally, any sensible person in such a position when a military coup is occurring lies on the ground. My friend did so, with many others. When the shooting finished at the end of the day, they walked away. That is exactly what happened to an enormous...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Chile (7 Nov 1973)

Mr John Temple: Is it not a fact that the whole House will deplore the temporary suspension of parliamentary government in Chile? Is the present Government of Chile not pledged to restore parliamentary democracy just as soon as the present situation has been stabilised? Second, is my right hon. Friend aware that, when elected by Congress, the late President Allende gave certain specific constitutional...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill: New Clause 3 (1 May 1973)

Mr John Temple: Before my right hon. Friend leaves the part of his speech which refers to the grants of local authorities which have been taking place hitherto and which would be in respect of sewerage functions, can he say whether the Government have yet decided as to the scope and size of the grants which will be made to the regional water authorities to take the place of those grants which would have come...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill: New Clause 3 (1 May 1973)

Mr John Temple: My right hon. Friend said that the grants will be nil. I do not think that he meant to imply that there will be nil grants to regional water authorities to take the place of the money which would have come to those persons who would have received the functions indirectly under the present system. I know that it is a complicated point but the gravamen of the point should be clear to my right...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill: Clause 2 (1 May 1973)

Mr John Temple: Representing the constituency that I do I am forced to admit that on Second Reading I said that I was perfectly happy that the City of Chester should have its water administered by an all-Welsh water authority. However, my anxiety is growing because I had not realised the extreme nationalist views which would be expressed in the debate, and I must ask the Opposition to make it perfectly clear...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill: Clause 3 (1 May 1973)

Mr John Temple: Is it not a fact that those appointed members of the regional water authority other than the chairman will be appointed because of their special knowledge of a certain aspect of work and therefore will be expected to be specialists?

Orders of the Day — Water Bill: Clause 3 (1 May 1973)

Mr John Temple: I realise that the House must come to a decision on this matter relatively quickly, but I should like to contribute two small points. The first is on the composition of the regional water authority. The Government, I think wrongly, have put in local authority majorities. I am vice-president of two local authority associations, and I have regularly spoken to three local authority...

Rating System (12 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: My hon. Friend is clearly advocating a shift back to the situation where a greater burden is placed on commercial and industrial premises. Is he satisfied that the nationalised industries are contributing sufficiently to local government finance through the rating system?

Rating System (12 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: I know that the hon. Gentleman is always extremely fair, and I have no disagreement with anything he has said so far, but he must admit that the decision on revaluation was taken by the previous Labour Government.

Rating System (12 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: I cannot claim to be exactly a new boy in rating debates. I recall the remarks of the very much respected former Member for Widnes, the late Mr. James MacColl, when he said that he welcomed me to the "old boys' reunion." I think that we could do with an accretion of support for this club. We seem to have been a little thin on the benches on both sides of the House on this important subject. I...

Salmon and Migratory Trout (7 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: It is rather presumptuous of me, as President of the National Council of Salmon Netsmen of England and Wales, to speak on the orders, because they mainly concern Scotland. But I should like to give them a warm welcome and to explain to my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeenshire, East (Mr. Wolrige-Gordon) that in England and Wales we have rather different controls over drift netting and all...

Salmon and Migratory Trout (7 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: My hon. Friend is liable to fall into a slight error. In fact, the major catching of salmon by netsmen in England and Wales is by bag nets and fixed nets and only a minor proportion is by anything that might be construed as drift netting.

Orders of the Day — Water Bill (5 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: It is always a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Anglesey (Mr. Cledwyn Hughes) and I shall pick up one point in relation to Wales as I move through what I hope will be a short speech on this important Bill. As hon. Members' interests are so much in the limelight it is right that I should declare certain interests which I have. I am Vice-President of the Association of River...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill (5 Feb 1973)

Mr John Temple: My hon. Friend has dealt with the position of English areas which come under Wales. Will he deal with the Cheshire area which is an English area which will come under Wales. Will our Secretary of State or the Secretary of State for Wales be responsible for the English area?

Orders of the Day — Steel Industry (25 Jan 1973)

Mr John Temple: My hon. Friend has so far been dealing with steel production. Can he say something about the capacity which he envisages for the rolling side and the finishing side? It is those aspects of the steel industry which are so important in Shotton and various other parts where steelmaking will be closed down.
