Orders of the Day — Rent (Agriculture) Bill: Protected Occupiers in Their Own Right (17 Nov 1976)

Mr Geraint Howells: Amendment No. 78 is a Liberal amendment. It gives me great pleasure to support it. The Lords have been constructive in their approach to change the qualifying period. The amendment seeks to change the qualifying period from two years to four years, with the stipulation that the last year must be in the employment of the farmer who owns the house in respect of which the worker seeks security...

Orders of the Day — Rent (Agriculture) Bill: Duty of Housing Authority Concerned (17 Nov 1976)

Mr Geraint Howells: As one who has supported the Bill, I am a little worried about the local authorities' duty to rehouse. The Bill as it stands is totally inadequate in the crucial area of the local authorities' obligation to rehouse agricultural tenants who are no longer working on the land. In merely saying that the local authorities must use their best endeavours to provide alternative accommodation, it...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Marketing Structures) (2 Dec 1976)

Mr Geraint Howells: I declare my interest as a farmer and also as Vice-Chairman of the Wool Marketing Board, on which I have had the privilege to represent Wales for the last 10 years. This is one of the most important Adjournment debates for a long time. It is crucial for the agricultural industry that the marketing boards should retain their statutory powers. If one removes the statutory powers of the...

Clause 1: Effect of Act (18 Jan 1977)

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Pig Industry (20 Jan 1977)

Mr Geraint Howells: I am sure that Welsh pig producers will welcome the statement made by the right hon. Gentleman. I believe that it is a step in the right direction. Will the right hon. Gentleman give me an assurance that, as regards the long term, he will consider the situation again at this year's price review?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Regional Employment Premium (24 Jan 1977)

Orders of the Day — European Community (Skimmed Milk) (31 Jan 1977)

Mr Geraint Howells: The hon. Gentleman is making an interesting speech. Does he agree that during the past three years we have found it difficult in Britain to persuade ourselves that our method of marketing is years in front of that of our counterparts? Does he agree that we should try to sell to our counterparts in Europe our method of marketing—namely, the Milk Marketing Board, which has served the industry...

Orders of the Day — Self-Employed Persons (Tax Exemption Certificates) (9 Feb 1977)

Mr Geraint Howells: So far, it seems that Members on both sides of the House are in favour of safeguarding the interests of the self-employed. Having been a self-employed person all my life, I declare my interest. Further, I am a member of the National Federation of Self-employed. I feel proud to be a member of that organisation. It gives me great pleasure to follow the hon. Members for Cirencester and...

Orders of the Day — Self-Employed Persons (Tax Exemption Certificates) (9 Feb 1977)

Mr Geraint Howells: I have overlooked many matters, but the Government have overlooked even more. The question of appeals has been mentioned by hon. Members on both sides. The tribunal has no power to overrule the Inland Revenue and to direct that a certificate be issued. Apparently the Inland Revenue's decision on tax matters is final. Certificates are to come into effect in April, but the majority of builders...

Vaccine-Damaged Childhen: RENT (AGRICULTURE) (AMENDMENT) BILL [Lords] (9 Feb 1977)

Mr Geraint Howells: I believe that hon. Members will agree that the weight of legislation brought before this House over the past few years by Governments of both major parties has been so great that it is only to be expected that errors such as the one that we have discussed tonight are made. It is to the great credit of the much-overworked Clerks that mistakes occur so rarely. Rather than such mistakes being...

European Community (Council of Agriculture Ministers) (16 Feb 1977)

Mr Geraint Howells: I should like to congratulate the Minister on being able to persuade the other Council Ministers that there is a need to conserve our fishing industry and a need for measures to that end for this country. I am delighted that he was able to do that. Will he give an assurance to the pig producers in this country that the mcas will be changed in the near future? Does he honestly believe that...
