Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (11 Apr 1967)

Mr Derek Page: A year ago, in introducing his 1966 Budget, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer spoke of three targets—the need to maintain the value of the £, the need to promot production and the need to ensure full employment. No one would question that he has succeeded in his first target and that he deserves to be congratulated on that. It is important for the whole country. He has...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (11 Apr 1967)

Mr Derek Page: I would agree with that. What I was saying about the Selective Employment Tax and the need to reshape it and to encourage automation and efficiency in service industries would probably fit in with what the hon. Gentleman has in mind. We should take into account average earnings in designating development areas. In Norfolk, unemployment has not been as persistent as it has been in other...

Industrial and Provident Societies Bill (16 Jun 1967)

Mr Derek Page: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. It was in 1882 that the Bills of Sale (Amendment) Act was passed. Debentures issued by incorporated companies were exempted from the provisions of that Act, but no similar exemption was provided in the case of co-operatives. At the time that did not seem to matter, but with the growth of co-operatives, especially since the last war,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Natural Gas (4 Jul 1967)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Minister of Power what steps he is taking to evaluate the possible uses of natural gas for non-fuel purposes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Natural Gas (4 Jul 1967)

Mr Derek Page: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind the tremendous import savings and the job generation which can be brought about by chemical and metallurgical firms if the gas is made available for feedstock and on-site total enegry generation? Will he make sure that no obstacle is placed in the way of such development?

Sonic Bang Tests (4 Jul 1967)

Mr Derek Page: Will my hon. Friend not agree that in the interests of objectivity, as well as social equity, it is essential to have any tests conducted away from areas where tests of sonic bangs have been conducted for some time? Bearing in mind that the Wash area is one such locality, it will be essential in trying to get reliable information to keep Concord tests away from this area.

Control of Liquid Fuel Bill (6 Jul 1967)

Mr Derek Page: While I appreciate the need for the Bill, there are a few points which need clearing up. For example, what effect will rationing have on rural areas? The steady rundown of public transport in areas such as Norfolk has already placed a great burden on many people. There is now increasing reliance on private motor cars and the rundown of public transport, coupled with this fact, makes the...

Wash Barrage (25 Jul 1967)

Mr Derek Page: I have great pleasure in supporting the case put forward by the right hon. and learned Member for Huntingdonshire (Sir D. Renton). Understandably and rightly, he has paid a great deal of attention to the water conservation aspects of this great and imaginative scheme, but I have a strong feeling that the reason why our pleas for a feasibility study have been cold shouldered is that other...

Wash Barrage (25 Jul 1967)

Mr Derek Page: We would be interested to know how my hon. Friend can justify the figures which he has picked out of the air. I have never seen any justification for saying that possibly one-third of the cost would fall on those other facilities. What work has been done to prove this? Does my hon. Friend's Department have the facilities to do such work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Hunt Committee (16 Nov 1967)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs whether he will make arrangements for the Hunt Committee to visit the areas of the country having below average incomes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Hunt Committee (16 Nov 1967)

Mr Derek Page: Bearing in mind that low earnings must be the main factor to be considered by the Hunt Committee, does the Minister not agree that a visit to areas such as Norfolk to see the difficulties encountered by many thousands of people is essential if the problem is to be understood fully.

Minimum Income (24 Nov 1967)

Mr Derek Page: May I add my voice to those who have congratulated my hon. Friend the Member for Bedfordshire, South (Mr. Gwilym Roberts) for having raised this topic today. I wish to express my appreciation of the attitude shown by the right hon. Lady the Minister of Social Security and the Joint Parliamentary Secretary, who has been present most of the morning, on the way in which they handle the great...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Wash Barrage Scheme (28 Nov 1967)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what recommendation he has received from the Water Resources Board regarding a desk study of the Wash Barrage project.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Wash Barrage Scheme (28 Nov 1967)

Mr Derek Page: Does not my right hon. Friend appreciate that the whole scheme for a Wash Barrage involves consideration of enormous potential port development and the possibility of draining tremendous tracts of land for gas-based industry? The whole question is of such a scale that it can be considered only by the Department of Economic Affairs and not purely from the point of view of water conservation.

Orders of the Day — Education and Science (Select Committee) (22 Feb 1968)

Mr Derek Page: To help hon. Members to make up their minds on this Amendment, will my right hon. Friend bearing in mind the experience of the Agriculture Committee, say whether the Select Committee is to have a chance to have its report debated if and when it makes one?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Advance Factories (13 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: asked the President of the Board of Trade how many advance factories have been completed in the three months ended 1st March, 1968; and what proportion of these were in development areas.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Grey Areas (18 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: I listened with great interest to the speech by the right hon. Member for Leeds, North-East (Sir K. Joseph). I should have found it a little more compelling if I had not seen some of the rather desultory results of that planning in my part of East Anglia. When I was elected in 1964 I found that a large estate to accommodate overspill from London under an agreement with the Greater London...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Grey Areas (18 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: One of the difficulties is that statistics for employment and earnings are not drawn up by counties. A map was published in the Observer about 12 months ago showing income per head county by county, and Norfolk and Cornwall were the lowest in the country. But there are major differences between different parts of Norfolk. Migration should also be considered. Our unemployment is a little...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Grey Areas (18 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: We are negotiating about that, and I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his help in putting on this pressure, for which I, too, have had some responsibility. Does the 100-mile limit make sense in these areas? Firms might tend to stay within 100 miles of London rather than risk a refusal of licences. One hon. Member after another has spoken about the employment problems of North-East...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment (21 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Prime Minister if he is satisfied with the coordination of the Ministerial Departments concerned in dealing with the problem of unemployment; and if he will make a statement.
