Orders of the Day — Opera and Ballet (19 Mar 1973)

Mr Edward Griffiths: The Under-Secretary of State should appreciate that the heart and soul of the country are to be found not in the West End of London but in the dales of Yorkshire, in the hills and valleys of Wales and in the Highlands of Scotland. That is where our musical heart is to be found, and I wholeheartedly support the plea that we outside London should get a fair share of the good things in the...

Orders of the Day — Steel Industry (25 Jan 1973)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Would the hon. Gentleman accept that the £3,000 million has been spent in traditional steel areas where there is a tradition of steelmaking? Would he also accept that most of the money is going into development areas and intermediate areas?

Orders of the Day — Steel Industry (25 Jan 1973)

Mr Edward Griffiths: You are biased.

Orders of the Day — Steel Industry (25 Jan 1973)

Mr Edward Griffiths: I shall not fall into the trap of trying to make cheap political points. We are discussing the state of the British steel industry in 10 years' time. If we were to waste precious time in taking the political rise out of one another and blaming each other, we would let down the 250,000 workers in the industry. However, to make just one small political point, I have noticed a distinct change...

Orders of the Day — Steel Industry (25 Jan 1973)

Mr Edward Griffiths: No. I have not much time. The question of money has been raised. I repeat what I said earlier, that every farthing is going to the traditional steel industry areas, so if there is not enough money to go round all the existing steel areas it is not because some brand new area is getting the money at their expense. From Port Talbot to Ravenscraig, to Sheffield, Rotherham, and the North-East...

Orders of the Day — Steel Industry (25 Jan 1973)

Mr Edward Griffiths: I am not giving way. My hon. Friend has just come in and I have waited six hours to speak in the debate. Again, all the money is going to development areas and intermediate areas. The question of mini-mills has been mentioned a great deal. I think there is a great danger of certain areas building too much hope on mini-mills. I believe that there will be a scrap crisis in the country when...

Orders of the Day — UNITED REFORMED CHURCH BILL [Lords] (By Order) (21 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Rubbish.

Orders of the Day — UNITED REFORMED CHURCH BILL [Lords] (By Order) (21 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Does not my hon. Friend agree that if Christian men and women of whatever denomination wish to join together the last thing they want is to be told by law what is right and what is wrong? If they wish to join together, according to Christian philosophy, they will find a Christian solution to their problems and not a legal solution as my hon. Friend suggests.

Orders of the Day — UNITED REFORMED CHURCH BILL [Lords] (By Order) (21 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Will my right hon. Friend make up his mind whether he wants the union of the Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, or whether he is making an argument for the minority which wants to opt out? My right hon. Friend is making a pseudo-political argument—I do not mean "political" in the true sense of the word—in favour of opting out rather than giving full hearted blessing to the union...

Orders of the Day — UNITED REFORMED CHURCH BILL [Lords] (By Order) (21 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: I wonder whether my right hon. Friend would like to comment on the debit and credit sides of union. How many Congregationalists—and I include myself—would feel that they had given up a certain amount of Christian philosophy by the union? My right hon. Friend speaks of 300 or 400 years of heritage. Would he talk, not in materials terms, but in Christian terms?

Orders of the Day — UNITED REFORMED CHURCH BILL [Lords] (By Order) (21 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Will the hon. Gentleman indicate his interest in this matter? I have followed the hon. Gentleman's career in the House. This is the first time in his career here that we have heard him talk about a subject which has nothing to do with Northern Ireland.

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside Region (19 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Speak to Yorkshire.

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside Region (19 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: What about Sheffield and Rotherham?

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside Region (19 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Will the right hon. Gentleman allow me?

Orders of the Day — Yorkshire and Humberside Region (19 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: I am surprised that the right hon. Gentleman is dismissing the contribution made by Sheffield. We all know about Anchor. Will he tell us how much is spent in Sheffield and Rotherham and how much will be spent in that area and on the Special Steels Division?

Orders of the Day — Members' Foreign Language Courses (13 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Would my hon. Friend not agree that the reason why foreign car manufacturers—

Orders of the Day — Members' Foreign Language Courses (13 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Griffiths: Would my hon. Friend not agree that the reason why foreign manufacturers do so well in this country is because their representatives have been educated to speak English? Similarly, if we as Members of Parliament were more acquainted with European languages we would be far more effective.
