Orders of the Day — National Insurance Commissioners (Appeals) (22 Jul 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: The House of Commons has always been regarded as the guardian of the privileges of our people, and I make no apology for raising tonight the personal case of a constituent of mine in Solihull, Mr. Latham. Mr. Latham retired from in-industry last year, and three months later he took up temporary work. His claim for a retirement pension during the three months between the date on which he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Trustee Office (23 Mar 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that, meticulously as, no doubt, this inquiry has been carried out, the 80 people who have made allegations that their affairs have not been properly conducted will not be satisfied with an inquiry into allegations against the Public Trustee Office which have been investigated in the Public Trustee Office?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trials (Transcripts) (3 Feb 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that the anxiety about the way in which this case has been handled is not in the least confined to the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale) and that those who have read the correspondence find it extraordinarily hard to understand why transcripts are made available in some cases and not in others? Will my right hon. and learned Friend have a look...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Trustee Office (3 Feb 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: asked the Attorney-General if he will set up an inquiry into the Public Trustee Office.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Trustee Office (3 Feb 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: Would my right hon. and learned Friend bear in mind, first, that they are not my allegations but the allegations of over 80 deeply aggrieved people whose affairs were handled by the Public Trustee Office? Will he also bear bear in mind that these people will not have any confidence in internal investigations carried cut in the Public Trustee Office by the Public Trustee Department and that...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Reorganisation (Luton and Solihull) (22 Jan 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: I rise for a moment or two to thank my right hon. Friend on behalf of my constituents for having laid this Order. It is not the first time that we have had reason to be grateful to him. Only a little while ago there was a proposal to knock a projection off the constituency boundaries and put some 2,000 of my constituents into the City of Birmingham, a proposal to which they strongly objected....

Orders of the Day — Local Government Reorganisation (Luton and Solihull) (22 Jan 1964)

Sir Martin Lindsay: To get the matter in perspective, may I ask my right hon. Friend whether I am right in saying that this question under consideration is no more than a 2d. rate? The highest figure I have heard put is 2½d.—not really a very great amount.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Public Trustee (Annual Revenue) (1 Aug 1963)

Sir Martin Lindsay: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the annual revenue of the Public Trustee.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Public Trustee (Annual Revenue) (1 Aug 1963)

Sir Martin Lindsay: In view of the complaints against the Public Trustee, would my right hon. Friend be prepared to consider a memorandum after the holidays setting out a case for an inquiry into the Public Trustee?

Members' Salaries (9 Apr 1963)

Sir Martin Lindsay: While appreciating the reasons behind my right hon. Friend's statement, which I wish to support, would not it be possible for my right hon. Friend to get together with the leaders of the other two parties and agree on a substantial increase in Ministers' and Members' salaries, and make a joint statement that the parties would agree to these improvements at the beginning of the next Parliament?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Departmental Correspondence (4 Mar 1963)

Sir Martin Lindsay: asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that a firm of Birmingham solicitors, whose name has been sent to him, have written to his Department's legal adviser twice since 17th January, seeking advice in regard to a case of ill-health, but have received no reply other than an acknowledgment card after the second letter; and what disciplinary action he proposes to take against this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Departmental Correspondence (4 Mar 1963)

Sir Martin Lindsay: I am obliged to my right hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — United States and Cuba (11 Feb 1963)

Sir Martin Lindsay: If there were a fresh Cuban crisis, would it not be better to leave it to President Kennedy to deal with as he dealt with the last one?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: John Vassall (Committee of Inquiry) (8 Nov 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: Is the Prime Minister aware that nobody who knows Lord Carrington or the hon. Member for Glasgow, Hillhead (Mr. Galbraith) could possibly believe that they could conceivably have had any kind of improper relationship with Vassall? Is my right hon. Friend aware that right hon. and hon. Members opposite who have lent their weight to a Press campaign to this effect have not played a very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Employees (Clothing) (5 Nov 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: asked the Minister of Labour if he will introduce legislation to ensure that employees shall not be debarred by their terms of employment from wearing clothes which have religious significance for them.

Petition: Commonwealth Preference (3 Aug 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: I am sure that the House is grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Wembley, South (Mr. Russell) for raising this issue, because the Commonwealth Preference system has certainly been a great help to us in the past. It undoubtedly considerably assisted our recovery from the 1929 slump. But, in my judgment, this is much less valuable today and I do not think that we should exaggerate its...

Petition: Commonwealth Preference (3 Aug 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: I am sorry if I did not mention the country. This is the Australian tariff. Whether we like it not, we have to face the position as it is, and that is that Commonwealth countries have altered the pattern of preference, lowering it by negotiation to suit the interests of their own trade, just as from time to time they impose quotas and raise tariffs which hit British exports. I make no...

Petition: Commonwealth Preference (3 Aug 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: With respect, they are not wholly wrong. They are perfectly accurate statistics taken from the Board of Trade's figures. I have given the figures in terms of percentage, and they are accurate.

Petition: Commonwealth Preference (3 Aug 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: I cannot give way again. I have only a short time, and other Members wish to take part in the debate. It is foolish to suggest that the Board of Trade figures are wholly wrong. It is no good our trying to live in the past. We must look to the future. It is no secret that I desperately hope that our negotiations will be successful and that we shall join the Common Market. I want us to join...

Petition: Commonwealth Preference (3 Aug 1962)

Sir Martin Lindsay: This is outrageous. Does not the right hon. Gentleman realise that to quote figures of percentage of British imports and percentage of British total exports is the fairest possible guide?
