Orders of the Day — Class Iii: Scotland (Trade and Industry) (21 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: What the hon. Member said is not true. Last night we were listening to the same nonsense.

Orders of the Day — Class Iii: Scotland (Trade and Industry) (21 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: I have followed the hon. Member for Greenock (Dr. Dickson Mabon) in debate on previous occasions. Today, I am inclined to be sympathetic to him. I know something of his problem. It was my privilege and duty to serve in Greenock for a year or so during the war. But I hope that the Committee will excuse me if I do not follow his speech in detail. I want to refer to some of the problems in my...

Orders of the Day — Class Iii: Scotland (Trade and Industry) (21 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: I do not dissent from that. I have been urging urgency—if I may put it that way. I do not take it well when the hon. Member laughs about it. I have not sat back and done nothing. I have been trying to get something like this done for years. The hon. Member is in agreement with me on this. I am merely expressing my delight that this is happening now, and I hope that, if anything, I can...

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: The Prime Minister may not be the great drinker of whisky that the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) suggests, but if he has a little of the water of Perth, then that is at all events good peaty water.

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: I believe that on both sides of the House there is already full and general agreement that this is a Measure well worth while for Scotland. I agree with the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Manuel) that this is, however small, an important Measure. I am inclined in that respect to disagree with my hon. Friend the Member for South Angus (Sir J. Duncan), who has temporarily left the...

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: That is not what I have said. I had in mind something, but I must watch the occupant of the Chair when I say that if water is to be abstracted that might be done apart from the provisions of the Bill. If there were a financial aspect related to abstraction which could apply to those who build catchments for water to be used at times of scarcity that would be an advantage. My hon. Friend the...

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: I understood that the hon. Member did.

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: It has certainly been mentioned, but I will not pursue the matter further. I welcome the Bill from the point of view of the interests not only of my constituents but of those in the surrounding areas. When the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire talks about farmers, he gives the impression that they are all men of substance, but in my three counties there are many who will not be encouraged one...

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: The hon. Member has referred to Talla, which is in my constituency. I agree that that was the situation. I understand that there is a stream contiguous to my constituency to which the Edinburgh Corporation is now looking for further supplies, probably in Selkirkshire. By taking feed water, Edinburgh would be helped as well as the Tweed Valley.

SPRAY IRRIGATION (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: And all under a Tory Government.

World Health Research Centre ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: Normally one would expect that the final subject before the House would be that which was last printed on the Order Paper—and that today it would be the one in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Wimbledon (Sir C. Black) concerning the practice of the Metropolitan Police in supplying information and fingerprints regarding convicted persons. I am well acquainted with the proceedings of...

World Health Research Centre ( 9 Jul 1964)

Commander Charles Donaldson: The fact is that this subject was not placed on the Order Paper. I am one of those hon. Members representing Scottish constituencies who tries always to be alert. I hope that when my hon. Friend replies to this debate we shall be told whether the Government agree that an organisation should be set up in this country, and whether we are to contribute to it financially. I am not certain...
