Clause 1. — (Establishment and Jurisdiction of Lands Tribunal.) (22 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to move in page 2, line 35, at the end, to insert: (c) and any jurisdiction conferred upon the county court under section forty-nine of the Local Government Act, 1948. I suggest that it would be convenient to discuss this Amendment together with the one in Schedule 2, page 15, line 60, at the end to insert "11 & 12 Geo. 6. c. 26. Local Government Act, 1948. Section 49." which is...

Clause 1. — (Establishment and Jurisdiction of Lands Tribunal.) (22 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: First, 1 wish to thank my hon. Friend the Member for Hertford (Mr. Walker-Smith) for his support and for the arguments he has adduced on behalf of this Amendment. When moving the Amendment I said that I was not seeking to be dogmatic about it, and, if I may say so, I think it extremely reasonable that the Attorney-General should want some time -to made the necessary inquiries into the matter....

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Does the right hon. Gentleman include Ellesmere Port in those figures?

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: A number of controversial points have been raised in this Debate, and it is extremely tempting to try to follow them all. I think, however, that I can obtain agreement from all sides of the House in two matters. The first is that we all pay tribute to the work that has been done by the people of Merseyside during the past 10 years, and that we have a common bond in our loyalty to Merseyside....

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If the right hon. Gentleman was stating a fact, I have just pointed out that he was not wholly accurate, because I also represent a large number of industrial workers who travel early in the day. I was not making my remark in an unpleasant way, but the right hon. Gentleman did rather suggest a slight sneer, as I thought, against the black-coated worker. The hon. Member for the Scotland...

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I have said all I wanted to say on that point, Sir, but I should have thought it was germane to this matter of unemployment on Merseyside. There is a hard core of unemployment—some 25,000 people. Its existence is significant. This Government, in a period of full employment, with all the benefits of the American Loan and Marshall Aid, would get shortages in supply, and demands for all sorts...

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If the hon. Gentleman does not accept that view, well, of course, the rest of his argument to some extent falls to the ground; I say that because he wanted extra factories to take up the unemployment. But we do not want Birkenhead to be a one-industry town; we want to have other forms of industry for Birkenhead, and Wallasey also. But I hope that the Minister will not, if he gets other...

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I was referring, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, to two major points of principle which I think should guide the board.

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: May I point out that there are included in the Order Birkenhead and Wallasey, and the municipal borough of Bebington, and I was urging upon the Minister that, when guiding industries to Birkenhead, Wallasey and Bebington, which, I presume, is the purpose of the order, he should have regard to the situation developing in the neighbouring district of Ellesmere Port.

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I will, then, conclude on this matter in about two sentences, and say that I do know of two instances of projects which have gone or are going to Ellesmere Port and which may accentuate the difficulties there; they could quite well have gone to Birkenhead or Wallasey. I am simply asking the Minister to say that these considerations will be borne in mind in order to deal with the situation...

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I was simply saying that I should have thought industrial qualifications would be necessary. With regard to the development council, there the situation is different. [An HON. MEMBER: "What newspaper was it?"] It was reported in one of the local newspapers, the "Liverpool Echo," I think it was. It was in a statement of an interview with some representative of the Government.

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: All I am asking is that the Minister should contradict it and make clear it is not so. I should like to have some information about the development council. I hope all the constituent elements will be represented on it. The board, I take it, will be a functional body but the development council advisory. All these things are vital to us on Merseyside, and I hope the hon. Gentleman will give...

New Development Areas (30 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Is this the Northwest Board, or a special and separate sub-board?

Iron and Steel Subsidies (Review) (31 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Will this have any effect on the wage structure of the industry?

Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I wish to offer my very sincere congratulations to the hon. Member for North St. Pancras (Mr. K. Robinson) on his maiden speech. I have been a Member of this House for such a short time myself that it is almost an impertinence for me to comment on it, but I think he made his speech with agreeable modesty, it was exceedingly well phrased, well thought out, and forceful. I did not agree with...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Inland Revenue Office, Llandudno (26 Apr 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the present position with regard to the move of the offices of the Charity and Foreign Section of the Chief Inspector's (Claims) Branch of the Inland Revenue from Llandudno to Liverpool.

New Clause. — (General Duty of the Corporation.) (27 Apr 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I wish to ask the Minister if he will throw a little light upon the various mental processes that have been gone through before this Clause reached its present form. The right hon. Gentleman will remember that we had no opportunity in Standing Committee of discussing Clause 3 owing to the falling of the Guillotine. At a later stage, when considering a new Clause put forward by the Opposition,...

New Clause. — (General Duty of the Corporation.) (27 Apr 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I want to address the Minister on a fairly narrow point. In Committee, we always found the right hon. Gentleman's answers both courteous and comprehensive. In the Debate on this Clause I asked the right hon. Gentleman why, in his first draft, he left out a proviso that its provisions should not be enforceable in a court of law. The right hon. Gentleman did not answer me—for good reasons, I...

New Clause. — (General Duty of the Corporation.) (27 Apr 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The right hon. Gentleman says "they might give."

New Clause. — (General Duty of the Corporation.) (27 Apr 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Suppose the Corporation exercises control, and has every intention of stopping the subsidiary company from taking certain action but the board of that company do enter into a discriminatory contract. Could it be said that the Corporation would then be liable in those circumstances?
