Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Government Policy (Prime Minister's Speech) (25 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: Will the Leader of the House answer the question which I put to the Prime Minister last week? Is not the Common Market the best hope we have, in the light of the failure of Sunningdale, to get the North and the South of Ireland together and to enable them to work together?

Clause 4: Provision of Dwellings or Hostels and Clearance, Management and Development of Land (25 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: Thank you for calling me, Mr. Deputy Speaker—and the thanks are due to you entirely, not to Mr. Speaker. I was alerted to the problem so well stated by my hon. Friend the Member for Derbyshire, South-East (Mr. Rost) by the Bolton Chamber of Trade, which was acting on behalf of the local coal merchants. My name should be on the Amendment Paper as one of the supporters of the amendment. I...

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Prime Minister if he will seek to pay an official visit to Dublin.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Prime Minister (Official Visits) (20 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: As the Prime Minister apparently is not moving around very much, will he send someone else to Dublin, in view of the serious situation that could arise if, by any accident, this country left the Common Market, while the Irish Republic will, as we know, stay in? Would not that be an absolute death blow to the long-term chances of peace in the island of Ireland? Should we not have contingency...

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown Bill (20 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: I think that the Minister is putting words into our mouths. He is saying the exact opposite to the intervention that I wish to make. The argument that he is making is strong, but the argument that my hon. Friend the Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook) has made is that there are not enough back benchers in proportion to the number of Ministers so as to give back benchers an adequate control...

Pakistan Bill (20 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: I apologise for raising this matter at this time of night in another Pakistan Bill, but this debate reminds me of the debates in Standing Committee on the 1973 Bill when the hon. and learned Member for Bradford, West (Mr. Lyons), the Minister, and I joined to defeat the Conservative Government on that Bill. I particularly remember in that Standing Committee suggesting that a measure such as...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Trade Unions (19 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: First, am I not right in thinking that there are 25 million people employed in this country but that only 10 million are members of affiliated unions? Second, how can someone like me represent a constituency like mine without a large number of solid working-class votes behind me?

Oral Answers to Questions — Energy: Coal Merchants Federation (17 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: May I press the hon. Gentleman a little further on the matter raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Derbyshire, South-East (Mr. Rost)? Is not there a complete lack of consumer choice in the forms of heating which can be put into buildings of all types where there are no flues and where, as a result. people are forced to use oil-fired central heating simply because they can instal no other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Company Law (10 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: What special provision in company legislation will the right hon. Gentleman make for small firms?

Northern Ireland (4 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: It is fascinating that somebody with my name should be called to speak following the hon. Member for Sheffield, Hillsborough (Mr. Flannery). In view of what the hon. Gentleman said about the length of time his family has been in this country it might be said that we are both the product of past liberal immigration policies. I leave the House to judge whether they were good policies. I have...

Northern Ireland (4 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: That was an entirely helpful intervention. It underlines what I was trying to say in my attempt to be brief. There are some Catholics in the RUC, but not enough. There seems to be antipathy towards joining the RUC because of the sectarian feeling. If we could have a wholly Catholic section of the constabulary, it might work. I put that forward as a suggestion. I do not think that it is the...

Northern Ireland (3 Jun 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. In view of the great length of speeches from the Government benches and the brevity of speeches from this side, would it be possible for you to call two hon. Members from this side for every one from the Government side?

Clause 10: Payments in Addition to Advance Corporation Tax Due in Financial Year 1974 (21 May 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: I am grateful for the opportunity to take part in this debate. The welfare of small firms has been my interest since being elected to the House. I was glad to hear my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow, Central (Mr. Grant) draw attention to the source of the speeches. I well remember that when I had some Private Members' time and opened a debate on small businesses my hon. Friend had the job,...

Clause 10: Payments in Addition to Advance Corporation Tax Due in Financial Year 1974 (21 May 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: His seat is in the wrong place.

Clause 10: Payments in Addition to Advance Corporation Tax Due in Financial Year 1974 (21 May 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: I was not talking of the people I advise, I was talking about my own family business. If he expects me as a director to finance that business, I assure the hon. Gentleman that the business had to finance me; it was all I had to live on. Some of the shareholders were the descendants or widows of people who contributed to the founding of the business. They were dependent on the business. They...

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will make a statement of Government policy regarding metrication.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices and Consumer Protection: Metrication (20 May 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: Will the Minister assure the House that the Government have absolutely no intention of going beyond the terms of the White Paper on metrication published in 1972? While he is at it, will he draw the attention of the Metrication Board to the fact that one of its principal arguments has been shot from under it by the almost unanimous vote of the United States Congress that America will not go...

Orders of the Day — Education (1 May 1974)

Mr Robert Redmond: I am extremely grateful to be called immediately after the hon. Member for Bolton, East (Mr. Young). I congratulate him on his maiden speech and I wish him every success in the short time that he is in this House. We all hope that we shall hear from him again. In view of the pleas from the Chair for brief speeches, I shall not deal with all the aspects of education in Bolton which give rise...
