Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 100 (29 May 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: The Minister of State took a long time explaining this matter and Clause 100 and I cannot help noticing that there is still another Clause which was not discussed in Committee and is not likely to be now since the Guillotine falls at 11 o'clock. The Minister of State listened very carefully to our arguments in Committee on this point, as, indeed, we listened to what he said at the time, and...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 100 (29 May 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I had hoped that I had made this clear, that under the wording of the Clause, even as amended, the public have no rights. We discussed this in Committee in great detail, and I thought that the Minister accepted our point, and intended to find a way of solving the problem. That is how I read his speech, and I am sorry that he has not done this. I have quoted the one case, which is a limited...

Oral Answers to Questions — Telephone Service: Telephone Directories (13 Jun 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that the inclusion of the 5,000 popular names and businesses in each book will not lead to confusion and jealousy between those who are in and those who are out? Will he take care in deciding who should be in or out?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Local Radio Stations (13 Jun 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: As regards the six existing stations, can the Postmaster-General say how much of the charges for them fall on the local ratepayers concerned and tell the House how many ratepayers listen to the stations?

Hon. Anthony Berry: asked the Minister of Transport when work will start on the construction of the D ring road to the north of London; when he expects the work to be completed; and whether he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: D Ring Road (19 Jun 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is a welcome improvement on earlier answers about this very important matter? My constituents and others in the northern parts of London and the surrounding area will be pleased to hear the reply and would be even more pleased if the final date could be brought forward if possible.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Waterways (Transport Bill) (19 Jun 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that Schedule 12 of the Transport Bill, which lists the cruising waterways amongst other matters, was not discussed either in Committee or on the Report stage because of the Guillotine and that it omits large sections of our waterways which those concerned feel should be part of the Bill? Will he look again at this and see whether at a later stage these parts...

Hon. Anthony Berry: asked the Minister of Power how many letters he has received objecting to the salary of the Chairman of the British Steel Corporation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: British Steel Corporation (9 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Would the Minister agree that his reply confirms that the public expect the right salary to be paid to the right man in the right job? Would he not further agree that this applies equally to the public and to the private sector? Will he bear in mind that those who are paid so-called "large" salaries pay a large part of them back to the Treasury in taxation?

Motor Vehicles (Driving Test Fee) (11 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I approach the matter in much the same spirit as that adopted by the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Mr. Ogden), having in mind the need for motorists to drive without causing danger and with due consideration for others. I welcome this opportunity to discuss the tests and to consider whether the large increase, to which my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker) has...

Motor Vehicles (Driving Test Fee) (11 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I am arguing that if the fee is to be increased certain improvements should be made, and I am making suggestions for improvement which, perhaps, would justify the increase. If I may pursue the matter for a moment—and hope for the best, Mr. Speaker—the first point I make is that there is no reference in the pamphlet to indicate that there are cars on which the gears do not have to be...

Motor Vehicles (Driving Test Fee) (11 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I hope to leave at least 6d. at the end in order to support the Prayer against the increase. I am also concerned about the use of hand signals. I know that they are important, but since all cars today have indicators and brake lights, I believe that too much play is made of the use of the hand signal in driving tests.

Motor Vehicles (Driving Test Fee) (11 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Yes, Mr. Speaker. I think perhaps 6d. for hand signals, in order to leave myself something in hand in case I find some more points later on. Many times when following a learner driver I have very much wished that he or she had had both hands on the wheel and not one stretched out of the window. There is quite rightly mention in the pamphlet of crossings and what one should do at halt signs,...

Motor Vehicles (Driving Test Fee) (11 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I am grateful, Mr. Speaker. I think that I have emphasised strongly enough that there are grave omissions in the way in which drivers are prepared for their tests. If they are to pay more for them, they should be better prepared to pass them, as we hope they will. I hope that the Minister will take note of my suggestions. It is wrong that there should be no mention of the give way sign....

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Rail Go-slow (Controlled Parking Zones) (24 Jul 1968)

Hon. Anthony Berry: Was there not some ambiguity in that many people parked at residents' meters without realising that they were not in a free zone although other meter bays were? Will he ask the police to exercise their discretion with the utmost sympathy towards anyone who has been summoned because of this?
