Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords] (30 Jan 1974)

Mr Roger White: The right hon. Member for Anglesey (Mr. Cledwyn Hughes), in his usual courteous fashion, referred to the Bill as being both useful and important. He paid tribute indirectly, as have other hon. Members, to my right hon. Friend the Minister for Transport Industries, who has achieved almost the unachievable, not for the first time, in that he has apparently attracted almost the entire Liberal...

Food Prices (10 Dec 1973)

Mr Roger White: Oh, come!

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Prison Officers (8 Nov 1973)

Mr Roger White: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are anomalies between the prison service and the police and that it is a matter of contention? Will he look into that, too, as a matter of urgency?

Metrication (24 Jul 1973)

Mr Roger White: I congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend for the way in which he opened the debate. He said it was a non-party issue. The last debate on metrication, on 27th October 1970, was also on a nonparty issue. My right hon. and learned Friend has given lists of imposing supporters for metrication. He has now included in the list some of our friends across the Atlantic in the United States. But...

Metrication (24 Jul 1973)

Mr Roger White: I certainly acknowledge my hon. Friend's intervention. Indeed, the Kent County Council Education Authority, in its publication "Metrication No. 1", which deals with the teachers' digest of decimal currency, and "Metrication No. 2", which introduced SI units, went as far back as October 1969. So there is no doubt that metrication in schools was to be made very clear to the country in future....

Metrication (24 Jul 1973)

Mr Roger White: I do not question the activities of the Metrication Board, and of course I acknowledge the words of my hon. Friend. I quoted the example of education, where I believe that metrication has overtaken the country by stealth. It may be a play on words. It is one of the fears that I expressed in October 1970 and again this afternoon.

Metrication (24 Jul 1973)

Mr Roger White: That is one of the reasons why I welcome today's debate. This is only the second time since 1970 that the House has had an opportunity to discuss metrication. While it is true that the Metrication Board produces excellent documents—I suggest at some considerable cost—which we hope industry and others will read, I welcome my right hon. and learned Friend's desire to strengthen the report...

Orders of the Day — Police (Manpower) (12 Jul 1973)

Mr Roger White: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that police widows' pensions should be subject to the same kind of review?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Pensioners (Heating Installations) (8 May 1973)

Mr Roger White: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will ask the Supplementary Benefits Commission to consider making grants for the installation of all-night heaters for pensioners.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Pensioners (Heating Installations) (8 May 1973)

Mr Roger White: I acknowledge my hon. Friend's reply and the Government's concern for pensioners, particularly during inclement weather, but will he give the House further information about the availability of electric blankets for elderly people who suffer from low temperatures?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Mental Hospitals (3 Apr 1973)

Mr Roger White: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what effect the hospital building programme will have on alleviating the conditions in mental hospitals.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Mental Hospitals (3 Apr 1973)

Mr Roger White: I am sure my right hon. Friend is aware that the renovated workhouse-type hospital is totally inadequate in terms of modern mental medical techniques. Will he therefore ensure that, within the hospital building programme, purpose-built hospitals are erected for patients who are in so much need?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Bus Licensing Regulations (7 Mar 1973)

Mr Roger White: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he is proposing to introduce legislation to revise the bus licensing regulations; and broadly what form such revision will take.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Bus Licensing Regulations (7 Mar 1973)

Mr Roger White: As my right hon. Friend knows, this is a very important matter. I wonder whether the industries concerned will be satisfied with his reply. Has he any further statement to make?

Non-Metropolitan Districts (21 Dec 1972)

Mr Roger White: I congratulate the Government on allowing us this time tonight—

Non-Metropolitan Districts (21 Dec 1972)

Mr Roger White: It will be the only thing on which I shall congratulate them, so the right hon. Gentleman need have no fear. I express my regret at what my right hon. Friend had to say in the short debate we had on 6th December last, on the Consolidated Fund Bill, when he spoke of my jumping the gun somewhat in raising the question of Districts 2 and 3 following Report No. 1 of the Local Government Boundary...

Kent (Local Government) (6 Dec 1972)

Mr Roger White: I am glad to have the opportunity to initiate this debate, albeit at this late hour, and I am both grateful and pleased to see my right hon. Friend the Minister for Local Government and Development in his place on the Front Bench. He has already earned for himself a considerable reputation in the local government world. I wish to draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the English...

Kent (Local Government) (6 Dec 1972)

Mr Roger White: That part of Rochester known as Strood is on the other side of a river, and separated from Rochester by that river, so it is a separate town.

Orders of the Day — Lorries (Size) (29 Nov 1972)

Mr Roger White: The opening speeches of the debate were overwhelmed by the excellent contribution by my hon. Friend the Member for Stratford-on-Avon (Mr. Maude). He expressed the tone and feeling of the House in the way in which he advanced his argument. The problem of the heavy vehicle is by no means a new one. It has been with us since the end of the last war and, like Topsey, it has grown. Much has been...

Southern Rhodesia (9 Nov 1972)

Mr Roger White: It is sad that we should be having this debate. I believe that in the fullness of time men will look back to this generation and say what a tragedy it was that educated people in London and in Salisbury could not have reached a sensible solution to one of the most serious incidents in modern times. I say at once that I have always been a very stern opponent of sanctions against Rhodesia, not...
