Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Sabah and Sarawak (Voluntary Workers) (30 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Will my right hon. Friend say exactly what is done by career officers, and other people like that, to create interest in the scheme in schools all over the country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Information Services: House of Commons (Television) (30 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Will my right hon. Friend give an undertaking that if and when television is introduced into this Chamber it will be kept going for all-night sittings so that those who are going to work in factories and elsewhere may see Conservative Members in their places, with not a single Opposition Member present?

Nuclear-Powered Ship (30 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Would not my right hon. Friend agree that this decision of the shipbuilders and the shipowners is courageous and enterprising and that if this sort of enterprise is to be continued, it depends upon encouragement from the Government in certain fields? Can my right hon. Friend say whether there will be any financial contribution by the Government to the project? Can he say what is the likely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry, Trade and Regional Development: Commonwealth Trade (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Would my right hon. Friend agree that the important thing is to increase our efforts to stimulate Commonwealth trade, first for the merits of that itself, and secondly to enable Commonwealth countries to explore the other markets about which he has just been talking? Would he further agree that one of the most important things which can be done for the developing members of the Commonwealth...

Business of the House (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Will my right hon. and learned Friend confirm his detailed answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Tynemouth (Dame Irene Ward) about the Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill, that, although it is nominally being taken formally, it will be an opportunity when any hon. Member can raise any subject he wants?

Orders of the Day — British Overseas Airways Corporation (Select Committee's Report) (22 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: The question of trooping is a serious and important one. Does the hon. Gentleman suggest that those independent companies which have received trooping contracts are either getting subsidies or are making large and wild profits? If he is, he does not know the difference between the base and the apex of aviation. Secondly, does he agree that if trooping contracts were open to the Corporations...

Orders of the Day — British Overseas Airways Corporation (Select Committee's Report) (22 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Surely in December, 1961, the contract was further amended to read 12 standard aircraft and 30 super aircraft. Surely this cannot have been within the area of political pressure.

Orders of the Day — British Overseas Airways Corporation (Select Committee's Report) (22 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: For the sake of accuracy—I suspect the hon. and learned Gentleman may not have told my hon. Friend that he was going to refer to him—when my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth, West (Sir J. Eden) referred to this issue he was referring to the aircraft industry and not to the operating industry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: North-East (20 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Is my right hon. Friend aware that we in the North-East welcome new firms coming in, whether they be parents or offshoots? But to encourage them to stay, might it not be worth while for a more positive policy to be adopted of selling trading estate factories to sitting tenants so that they may feel they own property that is worth while?

British National Export Council (20 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Will my right hon. Friend recognise that a slightly more forthcoming approach to Commonwealth trade would have been somewhat more gratifying? While we on this side of the House, and probably hon. Members on both sides, welcome the success of the Export Council for Europe, one would have thought that an approach similar to this could well have been made in the case of the Commonwealth. Is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry, Trade and Regional Development: President of Pakistan (Discussions) (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Is it not the case that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Industry and Trade had striking success at the Geneva Trade Conference recently which has paid off handsomely to the benefit of Commonwealth countries?

Business of the House (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Amidst the superfluity of Scottish business, is there any prospect of North-East business being debated today?

Cyprus (Major Macey and Driver Platt) (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: On a question of fact, can my right hon. Friend say what he means by "the authorities in Cyprus"? Does he mean the Cyprus Government, or the United Nations, or both?

Civil Estimates, 1964–65: Problems of the North-East (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: I am probably making the first speech that is in order. The hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey) was, I think, very reasonable in most of what he said. He might be unreasonable in some of the things that he said, but this we do not take exception to in the slightest. He was a little unreasonable in making com- Parisons between the Hailsham plan and the plan for the South-East, in...

Civil Estimates, 1964–65: Problems of the North-East (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: There is not much time and I think that I should get on.

Civil Estimates, 1964–65: Problems of the North-East (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: A few moments ago, I was talking about our three basic industries. Steel is at capacity or near capacity. Our shipbuilding industry is effecting a recovery which, one hopes, will be a launching pad to further success. The yards which are closed nearly always lose men to other yards which take them on. The hon. Member for Sunderland, North mentioned Shorts and Austins. Nearly all the men from...

Civil Estimates, 1964–65: Problems of the North-East (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: The point is to keep the recovery going in the right direction. The right hon. Member for Easington (Mr. Shinwell) must know this perfectly well. This was the object of my opening remarks. It seems to me that one of the things which the North-East Development Council needs to do is to cast its net a shade wider. We have convinced ourselves in the North-East that we are on the right road. We...

Orders of the Day — Shipping Contracts and Commercial Documents Bill (15 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: My right hon. Friend has said that the Americans are reasonable people and, in general, that is true. Certain pieces of information have, however, been given before the Congressional hearings on this matter which lead one to think that that is not true of all Americans. I am told, for example, that Senator Douglas used these words: I don't want to compare the European nations to a child or to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Television Reception, North-East Area (7 Jul 1964)

Mr Paul Williams: Is my right hon. Friend aware that most people in the North-East are extremely grateful for the advance he is making in putting a relay station in Weardale, and would like to express their appreciation to him for this? Also, would he in future when answering Questions about the North-East not include Lincolnshire?
