Orders of the Day — Fishery Limits Bill (15 Jun 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I share the anxiety of the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) about whales, which are still being attacked by the Norwegians. The right hon. Gentleman spoke about basking sharks. We have a number in the waters adjacent to my constituency. I wonder whether the right hon. Gentleman knows exactly what the Norwegians do with the basking sharks once they have harpooned them.

Orders of the Day — Fishery Limits Bill (15 Jun 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I was interested in what the right hon Gentleman said because there may be some opportunity of developing this within the sharking industry, which is growing considerably in the areas around Cornwall. The one consistent theme of the speeches has been the conservation of fish. It appears to all of us that this is one of the most important matters confronting the fishing industry at present. I...

Orders of the Day — Horticulture (15 Jun 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Can my hon. Friend say whether estimates have been made of how many people will be likely to apply for the scheme?

Orders of the Day — Horticulture (15 Jun 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I shall not go into the long story about nationalisation. There is a great difference between someone giving excellent advice and something which has to make a profit or a loss. I have risen, literally for only a few moments, to speak about these two schemes. As the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Peart) quite rightly said, the amount going to the horticultural industry is being raised from...

British Guiana (Constitution) (27 Apr 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: All hon. Members will agree with the final words of the hon. Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. Chapman). I rise to speak for only a few minutes because the hon. Member for Stirling and Falkirk Burghs (Mr. Malcolm MacPherson) and myself and another Member of this House journeyed to British Guiana last September. While there we had the opportunity of hearing the leaders of all the...

Orders of the Day — Ammendment of the Law (15 Apr 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: By accident I very frequently follow in debates the right hon. Member for Clackmannan and East Stirlingshire (Mr. Woodburn), but I have never before heard such flattering words at the end of his speech. I am very glad to know that those who are foolish enough to smoke and those who are so unwise as occasionally to take some liquor are so generous with their cash. I art grateful for what he...

European Fisheries Conference (20 Jan 1964)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware how much the inshore fishing industry will welcome this statement and that for many years hon. Members have pressed for a great deal of what he has said? Is he aware that hon. Members realise what a great part the Foreign Office has played in this matter? Will my right hon. Friend have power to control factory fishing within the 12-mile limit?

Fisheries (International Conference) (9 Dec 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement upon the result of the European Fisheries Conference.

Fisheries (International Conference) (9 Dec 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Is my hon. Friend aware of the importance of fishery limits, particularly to the inshore fishing industry? May I ask him whether he will be able to make a statement on these limits and when he thinks that the conference is likely to end?

Economic Situation (14 Nov 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Originally, I had no intention of taking part in this debate, primarily because nowadays—I think rightly—we make certain days available on which we dis- cuss specific subjects. Consequently, there is not much time to apply one's mind and thinking to many other matters which are contained in the Gracious Speech. I hope that the hon. Member for Blyth (Mr. Milne) will forgive me if I do...

Economic Situation (14 Nov 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: That is splendid. We always feel that the English are first class at building and only too glad to register the fact. These are the major points with regard to the question of unemployment in Cornwall, but at the same time I should just like to mention one or two other things. In the Budget of this year the Chancellor of the Exchequer, for the first time in the nearly 19 years I have been...

Economic Situation (14 Nov 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Maybe I have misunderstood the point, but I rather understood from my right hon. Friend's speech that this was in fact his intention and that he had begun with these two regions.

Orders of the Day — WATER RESOURCES BILL [Lords]: Clause 24. — (Exceptions from General Restrictions.) (18 Jul 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I support the Amendment. I shall not try to emulate the eloquence of my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Devon-port (Miss Vickers). The china clay industry, which some of us have the honour to represent, is an important industry. I want my right hon. Friend to realise that the Amendment deals with a disused pit which has water. If that water should be taken from that disused pit and put...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Building Programme (Cornwall) (11 Jul 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware that we are grateful that he is going to Cornwall at all and for the fact that he is aware of the position at Callington and that this matter will be taken into consideration?

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (8 Apr 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: Right hon. and hon. Members always feel it an honour and a special privilege to follow an hon. Member who has just made his maiden speech, I am sure that I express the view of the whole House when I say that we have listened with great interest to what the hon. Member for Swansea, East (Mr. McBride) has said. He has obeyed to the full the tradition of this House by not being controversial. He...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (4 Apr 1963)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I wish to make certain about one thing. Where a firm goes to a development district, and it is a question of building a factory and providing machinery, is the land also included?

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I have great sympathy with what the hon. Member for Edinburgh, Leith (Mr. Hoy) said about the dilemma in which we are placed, in that we have to accept or reject the Scheme and there is no means by which we can amend it. Like the hon. Member, I was extremely anxious when we first heard of this new departure in the payment of subsidy to a vessel built in a foreign yard, but I was somewhat...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: My hon. Friend has not yet referred to the question of currency manipulation.

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I am most unhappy with what my hon. Friend said, which was that his right hon. Friend and my right hon. Friend will bear this interesting—as he was kind enough to say— point in mind. I put a specific question. If by currency manipulation one brings about a subsidy in a foreign yard, will this qualify as a subsidy? In the recollection of most right hon. and hon. Members, this was how Dr....

Orders of the Day — Sea Fisheries (16 Jul 1962)

Commander Sir Douglas Marshall: I hope that my noble Friend the Member for Aberdeen, South (Lady Tweedsmuir) will forgive me if I direct what I have to say more to the speech made by her colleague, my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen-shire, East (Mr. Wolrige-Gordon). The hon. Member for Grimsby (Mr. Crosland) spoke about the tax which the White Fish Authority has to bear. I hope that the Minister will bear this in mind...
