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

Mr Derek Page: How can my right hon. Friend justify the spending of public money on an investigation concerned primarily with water when everyone knows that other factors such as port facilities and land reclamation are of the greatest importance? Does not he agree that the time has come to transfer the study to the Department of Economic Affairs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Minister of Labour (Speech) (23 May 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that that speech might have been a good occasion to make it clear that productivity and social justice might have been aided by allowing more free entry to the engineering industry by Government-trained persons and easier acceptance of them by the industry?

Agriculture (Select Committee's Report) (14 May 1968)

Mr Derek Page: It was suggested earlier that the right hon. Member for Grantham (Mr. Godber) would never be on the Government Front Bench again. I am not so sure. He has proved himself honourable and knowledgable, and his joining the Labour Party is, I think, only a matter of time. Be that as it may, I am glad to have been able to play a part in the pioneering work of the Select Committee. I congratulate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Heavy Good Vehicles (Quantity Licensing) (27 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Is my hon. Friend aware that transport to and from London to the outlying areas of East Anglia is of the greatest importance to developing industry, and that there have been some fears that firms might be tempted to move inside areas which appear to be less than 100 miles from London? Will he give an assurance that the radius from London which covers King's Lynn rather than road mileage will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: A47 Road (Traffic Flow) (27 Mar 1968)

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: A47 Road (Traffic Flow) (27 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Is my hon. Friend aware that the blockages at this junction already mean delays of 25 minutes or half an hour even in the winter months and that in the summer delays with holiday traffic are absolutely intolerable? Will he continue to keep a close eye on the need for improvements?

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.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment (21 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Does my right hon. Friend consider that it is socially just to take taxes and to divert industry from the abysmally low-earning areas of East Anglia in order to send help to the development areas? Is it not time that we rethought our priorities with regard to regional development?

Oral Answers to Questions — Overspill (21 Mar 1968)

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

Oral Answers to Questions — Overspill (21 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: Is my right hon Friend aware that there is constant difficulty in co-ordinating the industrial build-up with housing construction in our overspill towns? Will he take steps to see that the flow of industry to towns such as King's Lynn is adequate for the building programme?

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...

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 — 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.

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...
