Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Restriction of Right to Vote in the Lords (19 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: I am not happy with the suggestion in the Amendment, because it would backfire in a way that would surprise its supporters. Far from introducing technicians and technologists into politics, it would introduce politics into the realms of the technologists and technicians. Why is it suggested that we want a House of Lords? It is, surely, that we require normative decisions. Where clarification...

Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Restriction of Right to Vote in the Lords (19 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: I am interested to hear that the hon. Gentleman welcomes consultation between Ministers and outside bodies and that the entry to another place of specialists from these bodies might be of even greater advantage. Is not he aware that some of us feel that certain hon. Members have been at a disadvantage as compared with outside bodies in getting at Ministers?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Industrial Development Certificates (12 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: asked the President of the Board of Trade what consideration he is giving to revising the system of allocation of industrial development certificates.

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Industrial Development Certificates (12 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: Is my hon. Friend aware that the Report of the East Anglian Regional Council confirmed up to the hilt the miserably low earnings in Norfolk and, therefore, the vital need to get more industry there? Will my hon. Friend use her good offices to ensure that inquiries at an early stage, before I.D.C. applications, are channelled towards that area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Exports (12 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: asked the President of the Board of Trade what estimate he has made of the increased opportunities for British exporters in the light of the effect of the recent increase in world sugar prices on the purchasing power of sugar producing countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Exports (12 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: Does not the fact that Britain has signed the new agreement, whereas the Common Market countries have not, give us a moral right to expect a large slice of the extra trade which will accrue from this agreement? Will my hon. Friend do everything she can to draw the attention of British exporters to the fact that these sales will not fall into their lap and that they will have to go out and...

Nationalised Industries (Select Committee) (11 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: Nonsense.

East Anglia Planning Council (Report) (29 Jan 1969)

Mr Derek Page: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Hazell) for giving me a few of his precious minutes in the debate. There are one or two points which I am anxious to make about the Report. On the whole, I welcome the Report, which gives substance to a point which Labour Members for Norfolk have been making for the last four years—that this is a tragically...

Schedule 1: Exempted Goods (4 Dec 1968)

Mr Derek Page: In general, I should like to support what has been said by the hon. Member for Honiton (Mr. Emery) about Amendment No. 92. These chemicals are unquestionably raw materials to the industry, particularly those chemicals which are not made in this country and which are, therefore, in general, exempt from duty. They cannot be considered as anything but raw materials. I understand that about £180...

Schedule 1: Exempted Goods (4 Dec 1968)

Mr Derek Page: That is what I was trying to point out. The concession which was made with the import surcharge is simply not possible on this occasion. However, as the concession was made for chemical exports on that occasion, we have every right to expect the Government to make an adequate concession in this case, and the only concession possible is exempting those chemicals now free from import duty. A...

Schedule 1: Exempted Goods (4 Dec 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Helium, for instance, simply cannot be produced in this country. The other things like oxygen and hydrogen can.

Orders of the Day — Import Deposits (25 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: In general, I welcome the conversion of my right hon. and hon. Friends to the concept of some import control, although many on this side would prefer physical controls to this measure, for sound reasons. The 50 per cent. deposit for six months means that firms making these imports will have to pay about 8 per cent. for the money, and that, in turn, will mean an overall increase of about 2...

Orders of the Day — Import Deposits (25 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Of course it could and should, be made here. The point is that, to the best of my knowledge, it is not. The plants cannot be brought into operation overnight by waving a wand. This raw material is vital for making weed killers, which are exported on an enormous scale. These two examples are sufficient to illustrate the point without boring the House further. The list simply must be...

Orders of the Day — Aluminium Reduction Plant (Anglesey) (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: The question of the future use of our power resources is involved with the Scheme. Reference has been made to the subsidisation of the Anglesey project. The North Sea gas now coming into production will, within a few years, be available in a quantity far more than adequate for domestic supplies and will then be looking for industrial outlets. The biggest aluminium plant in the world, on the...

Orders of the Day — Aluminium Reduction Plant (Anglesey) (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: If my hon. Friend the Minister hopes to see hon. Members, particularly East Anglian Members, in favour of this Scheme, I trust that we shall have assurances that our hopes for North Sea gas will not be frustrated.

Orders of the Day — Aluminium Reduction Plant (Anglesey) (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: On the point I raised with the Minister—

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: East Anglia (Economic Planning Study) (14 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs did Britain. If we take the average over the last five years for manufacturing industry we find that the proportion of G.N.P. devoted to investment was 3·7 per cent. and in two of those years under hon. Members opposite it was below the average.

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: East Anglia (Economic Planning Study) (14 Nov 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Does not my hon. Friend recognise that the information given in the Report proves up to the hilt that the problems, particularly of the northern part of East Anglia, are problems of low earnings which give East Anglia every bit as much of a claim to Government help as areas of high unemployment and that it is time we rethought the whole system of priorities in our regional policy?

Clause 58: Meat and Livestock Commission (Levy) (17 Jul 1968)

Mr Derek Page: I was very pleased to hear the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Grantham (Mr. Godber) welcome the scheme, as I do. Indeed, I think that many hon. Members of this side will regret that the Commission will not have more powers than these. Certainly, the scheme has to be paid for, but the point I want to protest about—it has already been mentioned, but it needs covering a little more...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Wash Barrage (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Prime Minister what steps he proposes to take to ensure the co-ordination of activities of the Department of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and the Ministry of Housing and Local Government concerned with the desk study of the Wash barrage.
