Strangers Gallery (Admission Tickets) (21 Apr 1983)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jan 1983)

Mr Michael Hamilton: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Out of 36 questions tabled to the Prime Minister today we have reached only No. 3. We are all interested in what the Leader of the Opposition has to say, hut I think that he rose six times today. It would help Back Benchers on both sides of the House if you, Mr. Speaker, imposed some restraint on the number of times that he asked questions.

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (30 Apr 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: I sincerely thank my hon. Friend for his remarks. I understand his anxiety. To my knowledge, there has never been a single case to date in which a planning inquiry has gone into closed session to protect individual private circumstances such as those that he has in mind. I do not know whether my hon. Friend knows of any such case, but I hope that he will be comforted by the fact that it seems...

Mr Michael Hamilton: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. This measure reaches its final hurdle this morning before it leaves the House on its journey down the Corridor to another place, from where I hope it will reach the statute book.

Satellite Broadcasting: Foreign Nuclear Chemical and Biological Bases (Prohibition) (4 Mar 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The House recognises that the Bill that has been presented stands no prospect of reaching the statute book. Moreover, the House agrees that it stands not the slightest prospect of ever being debated. Therefore, I wonder whether the Select Committee on Procedure might by invited to consider, with the other points that were raised earlier today, whether this...

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (5 Feb 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: I did not want the hon. Member for Edmonton (Mr. Graham) to finish his speech without having an opportunity to say how much I appreciate the attitude he takes to this small Bill. I was interested when he referred to the "only case" of a planning inquiry where evidence had been heard in camera. I think he said that Windscale was the only case since 1971. I suggested that there could be an...

Mr Michael Hamilton: We are intensely lucky to have with us this morning my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Hertfordshire, East (Sir D. Walker-Smith) with his specialised knowledge in this field. There are no Scottish Members present. It has been put to me that, whereas in England the conduct of the planning inquiry rests on the discretion of the inspector, in Scotland it is specifically stated in...

Mr Michael Hamilton: My right hon. and learned Friend is right in discussing the inquiry on the third London airport, in which he took part.

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (5 Feb 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: I beg to move, that the Bill be now read a Second time. Such are the whims of the ballot box that the majority of hon. Members cease to be Members of the House never having had an opportunity to introduce a Private Member's Bill. I am grateful this morning, for the first time in 22 years, to have that chance. I have chosen a topic which springs from personal experience but which is of...

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (5 Feb 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: I take my hon. and learned Friend's point. I am always happy to give way to any intervention, from whatever quarter it comes. The civil servant that morning did none of those things. Instead he gave the principle his blessing. He told the company's representatives that an inspector at a planning inquiry had the discretion and the right to hold proceedings in camera. He told them, therefore,...

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (5 Feb 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: I can only confirm that no fressh safeguards exist today to prevent recurrence of what happened at Salisbury. By the time that that written answer appeared in Hansard, it was too late. The damage had been done. Policy can change from week to week, but by then, the company had gained access to Wiltshire behind the screen of secrecy. By then the company had paid the highest price ever for...

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (5 Feb 1982)

Mr Michael Hamilton: The Minister is very courteous. He is correct in assuming that I shall be referring to the Ombudsman's inquiry. I shall not weary the House with the detail of what followed. Mistakes can happen anywhere, and I have no hard feelings towards the civil servant, the company or the inspector. But it is difficult to forgive the calculated refusal to put matters right by those in this House who...

Orders of the Day — Planning Inquiries (Attendance of Public) Bill (5 Feb 1982)
