Procedure (Report of Select Committee) (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I hope that the hon. Member for Bebington (Sir H. Oakshott) will forgive me if I do not follow immediately what he has just said in his interesting speech, but I hope to touch on some of the points that he made in the course of my remarks. I cannot take the pessimistic view which some hon. Members on both sides of the House have taken about the procedure of this House and the way in which it...

Procedure (Report of Select Committee) (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I quite recognise that. I know that there are great difficulties, but I believe that it could be done. In the Finance Bill with which we have just dealt there were a number of Clauses about which only taxation experts or lawyers could speak with any degree of knowledge. While those Clauses were being discussed there were hardly any Members present. For instance, nobody but the experts...

Procedure (Report of Select Committee) (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries we had this delicate balance that other countries had not. France's great revolution and the constitution that has followed has tended to tilt the balance in favour of the legislature against the Executive, and the result has been the dreadful situation in which France has found herself till the last twelve months. To some extent, the same is...

Procedure (Report of Select Committee) (13 Jul 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: The machine.

Agriculture (Ploughing Grants) (6 May 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I, too, am inclined to wonder whether we have not reached a point at which not very much more is being done as a result of this Scheme than has been done hitherto. I have no interest to declare no this occasion. A little while ago I should have declared an interest, but since then I have handed over to my son. I suppose that I have an indirect interest in that I sit and watch! This grant has...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]: Clause 8. — (Contents of Control Schemes.) (29 Apr 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I am in favour of the Bill. I did not vote against it on Second Reading and I want to see it on the Statute Book. I have not supported the Amendments moved by my hon. Friends up to now, but I think that this Amendment is absolutely right, and unless I hear from the Secretary of State something which seems to be different from the position up to date, I shall support it. It seems to me that it...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]: Clause 8. — (Contents of Control Schemes.) (29 Apr 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: May I ask you, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, whether you will allow my hon. Friend to say what he wants to say?

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]: Clause 8. — (Contents of Control Schemes.) (29 Apr 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I am sorry, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I bow to your Ruling. I would like to have heard what my hon. Friend had to say, but now I must speak to him afterwards privately. I will conclude by saying that if the Secretary of State cannot accept the wording of this Amendment, I hope that he will at least produce another one which will embody its main principle, namely, that owners of land on which there...

Colonial Development and Welfare Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Provisions as to Schemes for Colonial Development and Welfare.) (25 Mar 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I do not want to prolong the debate for more than a few minutes, or to repeat the arguments which have been put forward so well by my hon. Friends, explaining why the Government should accept the Amendment, which will have the effect of compressing the period of investment by two years. I rise to speak only because I want to add one thought which I do not think has been mentioned. It...

New Industries, Forest of Dean (23 Mar 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I want to raise the matter of industrial prospects and employment in that part of my constituency known as the Forest of Dean. People there are disappointed because the Board of Trade seems by its recent action to have forgotten the problem which exists there. The prospect of Government help in that place seems to be less than it was a short while ago. I refer, of course, to the application...

Anglo-Egyptian Financial Agreement (16 Mar 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: This financial and commercial Agreement which we are discussing today will put an end, one hopes, to a very sorry chapter in the history of our relations with Egypt and with the Middle East in general. When it is through we cannot expect cordiality to be established immediately between this country and Egypt, or a better relationship to develop very quickly. Too much has happened. The whole...

Anglo-Egyptian Financial Agreement (16 Mar 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I agree. The ultimate solution to the problem will no doubt be international, but I suggest that as a preliminary to that we might have a conference of all the States interested in the Nile irrigation scheme. I entirely agree that this is a problem which might ultimately be solved by the United Nations. The difficulty has been the form which Arab nationalism has taken in Egypt. It has been...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (3 Feb 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I am sorry to have to disagree with my hon. Friends who have moved the reasoned Amendment. I hope that they will give me the satisfaction of thinking that I am sincere in my views, as I know they are sincere in theirs, but I cannot see my way to vote against the Second Reading, although, as hon. Members on both sides of the House have said, this is a Bill which could well be altered in...

Orders of the Day — DEER (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (3 Feb 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: As he was my cousin, I know something about that. The old landlord system is breaking down. I myself was brought up with the view that any land I might hold was held in trust for the people. That is the old Liberal idea. The old system is going, and public authorities are now getting power to control abuses. Agricultural executive committees and other authorities now have power to control...

Orders of the Day — European Monetary Agreement Bill (28 Jan 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: The hon. Member for Walsall, South (Sir H. d'Avigdor-Goldsmid) has referred in an interesting way to what happened in 1947, and we can agree that things have improved very much since that time. The difference between the two sides of the House is on the question whether this is the right time to take this step. We can all agree that some such step will be necessary sooner or later; the...

Orders of the Day — European Monetary Agreement Bill (28 Jan 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: Was it not because we went off the Gold Standard?

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill: Clause 1. — (Schemes for Grants for Increasing Efficiency of Small Farm Businesses.) (21 Jan 1959)

Mr Morgan Price: I hope that the Minister will reconsider this matter, various aspects of which we discussed in Committee, when the Government and the Minister did not show any sign of approaching our point of view. Two points can be stressed legitimately. One is that it is undesirable to leave small farmers who would benefit under the Bill, but who, possibly, would like to take loans rather than grants, to...

Thermal Insulation (Industrial Buildings) (1 Dec 1958)

Mr Morgan Price: I beg to second the Motion. The Motion has been ably moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Cleveland (Mr. Palmer). This is a very technical question and I do not claim to have the technical knowledge which appears in published documents dealing with the matter. I am not an engineer, but I think I can apply a little common sense to this subject, and it seems to me that there is a case for...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (13 Nov 1958)

Mr Morgan Price: The hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mr. D. Price) has dealt with general questions of first principle and has not gone much into detail, which I do not criticise. He said, however, that he regarded the Bill as providing justice and fairness to owners, and he dealt with the whole question of compensation. He referred to the question of the unreasonable price which might be taken by owners under...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill (10 Nov 1958)

Mr Morgan Price: And the supplementary scheme?
