Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill (14 Dec 1970)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Like the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Mr. Coombs), I rise to make my maiden speech, but I should like to assure the hon. Gentleman that I am not one of the virgins to whom he referred during his remarks. Nor am I inexperienced in industrial relations, having been responsible for 25 years for negotiations at all levels, from plant to national level. I should first like to make some...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, 1970 (24 Feb 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent instructions he has given to local authorities with regard to the implementation of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, 1970.

Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (14 Jun 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: I realise that the Secretary of State faces serious hazards on this question in view of his "lame duck" speech some time ago. Would he clearly indicate to the House that the Government will work conscientiously to ensure the well-being of the people involved? It is not just a question of 7,500 or 30,000 people; there are something like 120,000 human beings affected by this disaster on...

Orders of the Day — Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (15 Jun 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Representing as I do a constituency in which is situated the Clydebank division of U.C.S., I wish first to say that I am not an economist and do not intend to follow the academic, economic dialogue which has been floating backwards and forwards and which has included a considerable amount of waffle intended to restrict the time available for more useful purposes. I represent an area which...

Orders of the Day — Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (15 Jun 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: It might be ridiculous to the hon. Gentleman, but that is the Government's frame of mind and, therefore, it is a distinct possibility. The Conservative benches do not seem to understand what is happening. I believe that we are entering a situation similar to that in the 1930s. Certainly no workers on Clydeside are complacent about what happened in those days. They remember the hunger...

Scotland (Unemployment): Case for Support (27 Jul 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: I shall not go over the many excellent points made by my hon. Friends and I will try to be as brief as possible in view of the time, but I must refer to the long history of industrial decline in Clydebank, Cumbernauld and other parts of East Dunbartonshire since the General Election last year. It is no accident that it has occurred in view of the declared economic and industrial policies of...

Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (29 Jul 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether, implied in his statement, there is the possibility, or perhaps the probability, of the whole of the shipbuilding unit on the Upper Clyde being disposed of? I understood the right hon. Gentleman to say that unless certain conditions were obtained in the immediate future in the negotiations that are taking place the possibility of a viable shipbuilding...

Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (29 Jul 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: I am trying to pose the questions and the reasons for them at the same time. Whey my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Scotstoun (Mr. Small) said that this was the biggest disaster for years in Scotland, he was right. It is a great disaster, but would not the Minister agree that he is the biggest disaster of all time?

Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Listening to the principal spokesman for the Government on this issue, I was filled with disgust. It is apparent that the right hon. Gentleman's sole concern is to engage in an exercise of self-justification. He has no interest in the people involved in this terrible tragedy on Clydeside, for which he and his Government are principally responsible. When the right hon. Gentleman was busy...

Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Hugh McCartney: The shame is on that side of the House. As I have said at least three times before in this House, the social and industrial policies of this Government are taking them down the road to violence. We cannot shut our eyes to the possibility. I turn now to the Report of the Advisory Group on Shipbuilding on the Upper Clyde. This document, for which the Government are responsible, although they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Special Development Areas (7 Feb 1972)

Mr Hugh McCartney: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. What is the difference between Question No. 82 and the two Questions which the right hon. Gentleman has just answered?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Special Development Areas (7 Feb 1972)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Thank you Mr. Speaker. Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I am deeply dissatisfied with the way in which he answered the other two Questions which are directly related to Question No. 82? Is he not aware that a town development scheme, into which was introduced several new industries, is collapsing because this special measure which is being asked for is not being agreed to by himself and...

Orders of the Day — Increase in Average Rent of Development Corporation and Scottish Special Housing Association Houses. (6 Jun 1972)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Will the Secretary of State agree that what he is saying now is contrary to what he said to the deputation led by my hon. Friend the Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Lambie) when we met to discuss new town corporation and housing authority rents? When the question was posed, the right hon. Gentleman said that the policy in the Bill was to equalise rents and to eliminate the deficits in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Rent Increases (New Towns) (2 Aug 1972)

Mr Hugh McCartney: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland in view of the hardship of low income group tenants in the new towns as a result of recent rent increases, if he will instruct the development corporations of the new towns to submit modified schemes of rent rebate to conform with the Government's policy that rent increases shall not be more than £39 in any one year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Rent Increases (New Towns) (2 Aug 1972)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Does the Under-Secretary realise that in practice new town tenants in the lower income group will be asked to pay higher figures than he has given?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill: New Local Government Areas (18 Jun 1973)

Mr Hugh McCartney: I expected far more from the Secretary of State than the statement he has just made to support putting back into the Glasgow district what we were proposing to call the Kilpatricks district. He has not made one point of any relevance to the proposed new district authority either under the Wheatley Report or under the Bill. He talked simply about the alleged association between these areas...

Local Government (Scotland) Bill: New Local Government Areas (22 Oct 1973)

Mr Hugh McCartney: rose—

Local Government (Scotland) Bill: New Local Government Areas (22 Oct 1973)

Mr Hugh McCartney: Why does the hon. Gentleman try to persuade us to support the Government's point of view on the basis of these specious arguments? I was born and brought up in Bridgeton. I supported Clyde, part of which was in Rutherglen and part in Bridgeton. The reason why I supported Clyde was that I did not think it would be worth while to support Celtic or Rangers. Are you suggesting that all the people...
