The West Indies (Gift of Mace) (17 Dec 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: Mr. Speaker, the House will recollect that, on 19th November, on a Motion by the Leader of the House, leave of absence was given to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for South Shields (Mr. Ede), my hon. Friend the Member for Tavistock (Sir H. Studholme) and myself to present, on behalf of the House, a Mace to the House of Representatives of The West Indies. I now have to report that the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: It is some time since I had the honour of intervening in an agricultural debate and it is a very great pleasure to do so following the hon. and learned Member for Cardigan (Mr. Bowen). I know, from some experience of our debates, the interesting contributions that the hon. and learned Member makes and which bring to our discussions the atmosphere of Welsh Wales. I agree with many of the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I shall deal with that point before I sit down. I want to refer now to the speech made yesterday by the right hon. Member for Don Valley. He let his imagination run riot. He conjured up every kind of bogy which would devour the poor unsuspecting farmer. That would not be so bad were it not for the possibility that some farmers might think that what the right hon. Gentleman said was right. It...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I shall deal with that point later in my speech. The point is that hon. and right hon. Gentlemen opposite seem to use as a yardstick the amount of Government help which the industry receives. That seems to me to be a completely wrong way to look at the problem. In another field, during the last three years, the Government have passed through this House the Agriculture Act, 1957, which marked...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I am going to try to answer that very point. The hon. Member said, in effect, that although from the political point of view, the party opposite is opposed to the provisions contained in the Bill, why was it that organised farmers in the country were particularly opposed to Part I of the Measure? In regard to what the hon. and learned Member for Cardigan said, I agree that if anything...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: That always was a very difficult point under the 1947 Act. In this regard, I heard the right hon. Member for Don Valley yesterday use what I thought was a false argument when he referred to under-recoupment during the last nine years, and to possible under-recoupment under the 1957 Act. The right hon. Gentleman gave examples to the effect that the average under-recoupment during the last nine...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: Whatever we may see before the end of the week, the 1957 Act gives a certain guarantee as opposed to the uncertain provisions of Part I of the 1947 Act. In the long run, that, I think, is worth more to the farming community than any of the provisions of the 1947 Act. If any further assurances are required by the country or the House as to the intention of the present Government in regard to...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: It is by far the longest guarantee the farming community ever had. It will come up for review in 1960. At that stage it will be for the Government to determine whether to leave the percentages as they are or whether to reduce or increase them. Whatever they do, under the 1957 Act no alterations can become effective until the year 1962–63. I am certain I am correct in my assertion that this...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (19 Mar 1958)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: Yes, I can. I use the word not in a political sense. They are very conservative and have not yet realised the force and the wisdom of the 1957 Act, which has replaced Part I of the 1947 Act. Of that I think there is no doubt. I wish to say a word or two about the county committees, which have been referred to in the debate. It has been said that as a result of the repeal of Part II of the...

Orders of the Day — COPYRIGHT BILL [Lords]: Clause 48. — (Interpretation.) (25 Oct 1956)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I beg to move, in page 61, line 26, to leave out "or". I think, Mr. Speaker, that it might be for the convenience of the House to take this and the next Amendment, in line 26, at the end to insert : "or programme" together. These two Amendments do not in any way go into the difficulties of the application of copyright law, about which I am an amateur. They deal purely with the question of...

Orders of the Day — COPYRIGHT BILL [Lords]: Clause 48. — (Interpretation.) (25 Oct 1956)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I am grateful to the Parliamentary Secretary, who has made the position absolutely clear, and I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: Today the House will discuss the issues arising out of Sir Andrew Clark's Report on the public inquiry into the disposal of land at Crichel Down. I am thankful that this day has come. First, I think that it might be helpful if I gave the House my own review of the course of events affecting this land. I will then turn to certain general issues of policy that arise out of this particular case....

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I would ask my hon. Friend to await the Report. [HON. MEMBERS: "No."] I am only saying that the Report will be available, and that it will be written out in very great detail.

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I said that the Report will be in the Vote Office when I sit down, and all these details are contained in the Report. When the new Permanent Commissioner is appointed, one of his first tasks will be to study all that has happened in the Crichel Down case. It will then be for him to consider whether Sanctuary and Son should continue as the Crown Receivers for the remaining Crown properties...

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: It will be at the current market price as assessed by the district valuer. If the hon. and learned Gentleman will look at this in print, he will see how it is proposed to work.

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: No, it will be at the current market price as assessed by the district valuer. The Government have given further consideration to the future of the land at Crichel Down. I have already explained to the House how I reached the decision in 1952 that, on agricultural grounds and with proper regard for financial considerations, the right course was to equip the land as one farm. I have already...

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: No, it does not mean that; we should not have to amend the 1948 Act. I have nearly finished. I have tried to accomplish my duty to the House, which was to give an accurate account of the history of the Crichel Down case. I have told the House of the action which has been taken, and which will be taken, in the design to make a recurrence of the present case impossible. I have announced...

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: indicated assent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Rabbit Traps (Committee) (1 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: My Department is already bringing this and other humane methods of catching rabbits to the notice of farmers. As regards the second part of the Question, the work of the proposed committee will largely depend on trials of new and improved traps in the field, which cannot begin until the autumn. An early report cannot therefore be expected.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Rabbit Traps (Committee) (1 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Dugdale: I do not accept the view that there are delays.
