Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Unfit Houses (Replacement) (17 Jun 1964)

Mr Francis Lilley: While thanking my right hon. Friend for that information, which I think is very helpful indeed, may I ask whether he will bear in mind that the people of Glasgow are becoming a little tired of so much being pulled down and not enough going up? Not enough houses are being built in Glasgow to meet the demands of redevelopment. Will my right hon. Friend bear that in mind when future...

Orders of the Day — Succession (Scotland) Bill: Clause 2. — (Rights of Succession to Intestate Estate.) (19 Feb 1964)

Mr Francis Lilley: Is my hon. Friend aware that the original law in this instance is not quite Greek? I am advised by a very well-known man of law in Scotland that this is so. This law, in fact, states that whether it be a step-child or an adopted child—my friend said that it did not matter a damn one way or the other—they should both be interested.

Bills Presented: Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland (Dissolution) (17 Dec 1963)

Bills Presented: Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland (Dissolution) (17 Dec 1963)

Mr Francis Lilley: I was in Rhodesia at the time of its sixtieth anniversary. I was satisfied when I was told by the white people in Southern Rhodesia—and I was in that part of the world from 1947 to 1959—that the white people came to Southern Rhodesia led by a Scots gentleman by the name of Andrew Mickle. He led them there from Johannesburg. It took them six weeks to get there by cart, and, even then,...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Housing) ( 4 Jul 1963)

Mr Francis Lilley: The hon. Gentleman is interested in the people who are living in slum houses, but is he also interested in the fact that the City of Glasgow is paying £3½ million insubsidies? There are in my constituency the same living conditions that he is talking about, and the council pays subsidies for corporation houses. Do they do the same in Coatbridge?

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Housing) ( 4 Jul 1963)

Mr Francis Lilley: How does my hon. Friend reconcile the idea of industry leaving Glasgow with the fact that for many years we have tried to induce light industry to come to Glasgow? We want to keep what we have.

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Housing) ( 4 Jul 1963)

Mr Francis Lilley: I have listened to the debate with much interest. There has been a good deal of reference to statistics but, being no great believer in statistics, I will not touch them with a barge pole. Despite what has been said today in denigration of Scotland, I hope that anyone who comes to Scotland as a tourist does not think of the country as a large slum. Scotland has its beauty, and I wish that...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Housing) ( 4 Jul 1963)

Mr Francis Lilley: I am not talking of single ends or a room-and-kitchen. Some years ago there was a councillor in Glasgow known as But-and-Ben Jock, for even then he was complaining bitterly about Glasgow Corporation building so many large houses and refusing to build room-and-kitchen accommodation which is badly needed. In Kelvingrove I could not care less what size the house is as long as it is a new house...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Glasgow's Overspill) (29 May 1963)

Mr Francis Lilley: But that is not so. The Government do offer industrialists inducements.

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Alternative Permitted Hours in Certain Athletic Clubs During Winter.) (11 Jul 1962)

Mr Francis Lilley: The hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) will appreciate that there will be members of the club, who, possibly through infirmity, are no longer fit to use the privileges of the club, but who still keep their membership going. Are they not entitled to the same benefits?

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Alternative Permitted Hours in Certain Athletic Clubs During Winter.) (11 Jul 1962)

Mr Francis Lilley: I am quite sure that my hon. Friend gave the hon. Gentleman an instance. His constituency has a main street, one side of which is dry and the other wet. Does that not prove that we are trying to clear up the whole position?

Orders of the Day — LICENSING (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (16 Apr 1962)

Mr Francis Lilley: When the public usually think of legislation in Parliament they consider it to be a dry subject. That certainly cannot be said about today's debate. It is important to remember that this Measure is designed to recognise that the public's approach to the whole question of drinking has improved considerably since earlier licensing enactments were conceived. With the exception of one or two...

Orders of the Day — LICENSING (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (16 Apr 1962)

Mr Francis Lilley: The hon. Member has been referring to the City of Glasgow, and I get rather worried when I hear how much drinking is done in Glasgow. Is the hon. Gentleman aware that Glasgow is probably one of the most sober cities in Britain, as stated by the chief constable recently?

Orders of the Day — LICENSING (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (16 Apr 1962)

Mr Francis Lilley: What sort of clubs is the hon. Member talking about? As a Scotsman he must know about golf. Surely he has heard of the man who has holed in one? It would be sacrilege not to allow that man to have a drink at the club.

Orders of the Day — LICENSING (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (16 Apr 1962)
