Rate Support Grant (27 Jan 1970)

I should like to occupy the House for a very short time with that section of the Gracious Speech which reads: My Government will continue...

Fishing Industry (15 May 1968)

Mr George Currie: I do not want to detain the House very long. Naturally when one rises at this stage in a debate of this nature most of the matters one intended to cover have already been dealt with by earlier speakers. It has been an interesting debate, far-ranging and to me most interesting, covering as it did the deep sea fleet, the middle water fleet and touching on the inshore fleet. In the part of the...

Fishing Industry (15 May 1968)

Mr George Currie: I accept that. I have no great experience of television on this side of the Irish Sea. The industry is not totally lacking in public relations.

Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker) referred to Orange bands. Because I was very interested in the speech of the hon. Member for...

New Clause 7.: Saving for Places of Worship. (26 Apr 1968)

Mr George Currie: I acknowledge that, and am grateful for your intervention, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

I had the very good fortune to serve there with someone whom we referred to affectionately as "Stuffy" Dowding during the latter stages of the Battle of Britain. It is a...

Orders of the Day — Administration of Justice Bill (23 Nov 1967)

Mr George Currie: I make a very brief intervention on this most important matter, following on one or two points which have been made in the course of the debate.
