Clause 1: National Ports Authority (28 Apr 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: I support the Amendment. As I understand it, it is only if the Amendment is accepted that constituents of mine who have shares in the Manchester Ship Canal can have any prospect of being adequately compensated for their shares. As I understand the situation, shares in the Manchester Ship Canal Company have a true value of more than £6. It is proposed to compensate shareholders at a price of...

Clause 1: National Ports Authority (28 Apr 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: In that event I will say no more, except that I do not accept the hon. Member's comments. He knows very well that there are valid reasons for the low Stock Exchange price. These shares do have a true value of over £6. This does come within the terms of the Amendment because it refers to the prosperity of the area. If these shares are taken from these poor shareholders at this deflated price...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (23 Apr 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: In what I promise will be but a brief intervention, I want to make only two points. No one criticises—I certainly do not—the expansion in the National Health Service. No one says that there should not be further expansion. I have in my constituency a hospital 100 years old. I had a look at it a few weeks ago and was appalled by the conditions in which the staff have to work and in which...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (23 Apr 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: I hear what the hon. Gentleman says, and I listened to his speech, in which the figures he gave related more to current than to capital expenditure. If I am wrong, then I accept that I am wrong. Secondly, I criticise the Government for repeatedly increasing the flat-rate contribution by the employer. I can agree that it is in the employer's interest to keep his work people in good health and...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (23 Apr 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: Of course I agree that the employee must have these benefits, but let us be realistic. Do not let us sit in an ivory tower. Employers are in business to earn their living, not as philanthropists. They are not going to employ many people of this kind when other able-bodied men are available, and it would not be honest to their shareholders for them to do so. The employers who employ a certain...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (23 Apr 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: I am obliged to my hon. Friend the Member for Hertford (Lord Balniel) for assisting me. I confirm that in my constituency this problem is frequently brought to me. It may well be that in 1972 the problem will disappear, but we are still in 1970 with the Government making yet another increase in the flat-rate contribution, and I suggest that that is a mistake.

Greater London Area (Citizens' Well-Being) (13 Mar 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: While my hon. Friend is looking at the number of fish and chip shops, will he also remember the number of bankruptcies and the number of small firms that have gone into liquidation in the last year or so?

Clause 53: Inquiry into Fitness or Conduct of Officer (11 Mar 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: Because my hon. Friend says that he intends to divide the House on this matter, and because I shall have to vote with the Government for the first time in my life if he does so, I feel that I must explain my action. It seems that the objections raised by the Minister to this Amendment are quite conclusive. If we are to allow compensation to be paid in such circumstances, there can be no...

Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: I want to say how much I welcome the proposal to create a Family Division. It is something which many of us have advocated for many years. The extraordinary situation which has existed for so long, where family matters have been dealt with in almost every court, is an unsatisfactory system, and a satisfactory solution to the problem is now proposed in Clause 1. Today, proceedings under...

Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: Surely the test is the number of cases in which a debt is paid after a suspended committal order is made. A judge frequently says, "You will go to prison for six weeks unless you pay within seven days". The test must be the number of cheques that come in within the seven days, and, clearly, very many do.

MATRIMONIAL PROCEEDINGS AND PROPERTY BILL [Lords] (28 Jan 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: She can also obtain her remedy by securing a judicial separation. She does not have to seek a divorce.

MATRIMONIAL PROCEEDINGS AND PROPERTY BILL [Lords] (28 Jan 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: Like hon. and right hon. Members who have spoken before me, I generally welcome this Bill, which seeks to bring about some very necessary improvements in our matrimonial law. My complaint is that it does not go nearly far enough and that it falls far short of what we were led to expect at the time when the Divorce Reform Bill was passing through this House. A great many people will be very...

MATRIMONIAL PROCEEDINGS AND PROPERTY BILL [Lords] (28 Jan 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: I am grateful to the hon. Member for making those points, but none of them is really relevant to the point I am making. I am not very much concerned with those young people who obtain divorces. I am concerned with old people, particularly elderly ladies who will be divorced against their will as from 1st January next year. Most of them are not young. It is with these people that we are...

MATRIMONIAL PROCEEDINGS AND PROPERTY BILL [Lords] (28 Jan 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: I am aware of that provision, but the hon. Gentleman will recall that it ends by referring to the best arrangements that can be devised in the circumstances. So if an ordinary working man wants to have a divorce and remarry, his earnings have to be divided between the two families. When he dies the widow's pension by law will be paid to his widow, who will be his new wife, and maybe she has...

MATRIMONIAL PROCEEDINGS AND PROPERTY BILL [Lords] (28 Jan 1970)

Mr Keith Campbell: Unless an order of the court was made it would go into his estate and then pass according to his will. If he had left his entire estate to his second wife—which he probably would do—she would receive it. It is right to point out that the court has a power to order what is called secured maintenance and if the court knew about the policy it could order that the husband continue the...

Common Market Referendum (10 Dec 1969)

Mr Keith Campbell: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to allow the electors of Great Britain and Northern Ireland the right to decide by way of referendum whether Great Britain should enter the European Economic Community. I submit that legislation of this kind is necessary because without it the people of Britain, who have never been consulted on this important issue, will never be...

Common Market Referendum (10 Dec 1969)

Mr Keith Campbell: Although all three political parties are in agreement—perhaps because they are all in agreement—nobody has ever taken the trouble to explain to the people in detail why it is to their advantage to join the Common Market. Nobody has ever explained to them what the consequences would be and nobody has ever told them what would be the cost. If, however, it should become the law, as I wish...

Common Market Referendum (10 Dec 1969)

Mr Keith Campbell: When the question was whether the sovereignty of Gibraltar should be with Britain or with Spain, we thought it right to let the people of Gibraltar express their views in a referendum. When discussing the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, the Government have repeatedly assured us that nothing will be done which is contrary to the wishes of the people of those islands. Surely, therefore,...

Common Market Referendum (10 Dec 1969)

Mr Keith Campbell: The people are discussing it up and down the land every day. They want the opportunity to express their views. If they are to be deprived of that opportunity, they will resent the fact. For Parliament to tell those people that while they may have their views, they will not have any chance of expressing them and that this momentous decision will be taken by Members of Parliament alone,...

Common Market Referendum (10 Dec 1969)

Mr Keith Campbell: I will be less than one more Minute, Mr. Speaker. I only want to remind the House that by the Licensing Act, 1964, we gave the people of Wales the right to decide by referendum whether their public houses should be open on Sundays. On this vastly more important issue, cannot we give the people of Britain the ordinary democratic right to decide upon their future, a right which will certainly...
