Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Council of Ireland (13 Dec 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: I also join in the congratulations to my right hon. Friend. I hope that the recent talks will introduce a new era in the relationship between North and South. Will the Secretary of State say something about the method of working of the expert working parties? Presumably they will be at Civil Service level. When are they to meet? Will my right hon. Friend confirm that Northern Ireland civil...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Council of Ireland (13 Dec 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: Would not the groups to which the hon. Member for Antrim, North (Rev. Ian Paisley) referred have been entitled to attend the original Stormont talks? If they had attended these talks, would not the hon. Gentleman now be in a better position to argue as he does?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Owner-occupied Houses (Purchase) (13 Dec 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: Is the Minister aware that we welcome the fact that there has been an increase in activity in the scheme in the last two months, and that we also welcome the promise of a continuing review? Will he say a little more about the new basis of valuation in terms of valuation of property before it was vandalised rather than at current market values? Will he also say a little more about the position...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Constitution (Amendment) Bill (13 Dec 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: There is one matter which I should like to mention at the beginning of my speech, on which I think I shall carry all my friends from the Northern Ireland constituencies, and that is in the context of the statement by the Prime Minister today and of the mini-Budget which is expected from the Chancellor on Monday. It seems to me that the Executive will be judged, at least partly, by the...

Northern Ireland (22 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: The House has listened to an attack on the SDLP from the hon. Lady the Member for Mid-Ulster (Mrs. McAliskey). It was a bitter, uncompromising attack which I think will bring home to Members in this House the sort of problems and pressures which have been faced by all the parties taking part in the discussions. I do not intend to enter into controversy with the hon. Lady except to say that it...

Northern Ireland (22 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: The hon. Lady has made her point and the House will note the pressures, from the two extremes on either side, upon the parties in the middle who are trying to create these new institutions. I want to move to other matters and say that, for many of us who have lived through the last four or five years, this is a very important occasion. One recognises it as a very major step forward though,...

Northern Ireland (22 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: I am deeply touched by, and appreciative of, the concern of the hon. Gentleman. What has been put together is a package of compromises, and I do not think it serves any useful purpose to start unwrapping each layer and examining every little piece. I acknowledge that this is a set of compromise proposals. What I was saying before I was diverted by the hon. Gentleman was that there are...

Northern Ireland (22 Nov 1973)

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Executive (15 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend's personal rôle in the talks. That is widely appreciated. I hope that the talks will come to a successful conclusion. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that there will not be a debate on Northern Ireland until the talks reach a conclusion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Executive (15 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: Is it not curious—I exclude my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Down, South (Captain Orr)—that those who have threatened to destroy the Assembly and the Executive are now taking a slightly more constructive interest in these matters?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Housing (15 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the monthly average of home starts in Northern Ireland for 1973, and how this compares with 1972, 1971 and 1970; what are the reasons for the drop; and what steps are being taken to stop the decline.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Housing (15 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: Are not these figures of great concern since the housing starts programme seems to be running into considerable difficulties? In underlining the great need which exists for additional housing in Northern Ireland, particularly for those coming from areas of tension, and also recognising the great difficulties which exist in this whole subject, may I ask my hon. Friend to intervene and try to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Housing (15 Nov 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: On a point of order. I apologise for intervening, Mr. Speaker, but as my name has been mentioned I think the House should know that shortly after that article appeared The Times on 9th October published a full apology saying that there was no connection between either myself or any company with which I was associated and the items to which the article referred.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Royal Ulster Constabulary (Pay) (19 Jul 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: Is my hon. Friend aware that the conditions under which the RUC operates and the dangers which its members face are in no way comparable with those of any other police force in the United Kingdom? It is grossly unfair that this has not been given some form of special recognition. Will my hon. Friend give more encouragement, therefore, than the words in the latter part of his answer which, if...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Royal Military Police (19 Jul 1973)

Mr Stratton Mills: Will my right hon. Friend inform the House of the present size of the RUC detective branch, which under the present conditions is clearly operating under considerable pressure?
