Orders of the Day — Industrial and Provident Societies Bill (16 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The Bill refers to a change which is being proposed for legislation applying to all co-operatives, but the provisions will, in practice, apply solely to agricultural and horticultural co-operatives because it is here that a certain difficulty has arisen with regard to the raising of capital. Therefore, my remarks will he confined to...

Orders of the Day — Industrial and Provident Societies Bill (16 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I should require notice of that question. If the hon. Gentleman will bear with me, I will make sure that he is acquainted with that information. We can get a fairly accurate idea of what the practical effect of the Bill will be. There is no doubt that capital investment is by far the biggest single factor in the increase of production and productivity in any industry, and agriculture is no...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Warble Fly (14 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what proposals he has for instituting a compulsory warble fly eradication scheme, bearing in mind the effectiveness of modern treatments and the success of the eradication schemes in Ireland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Warble Fly (14 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Bearing in mind that our population and facilities are also much greater as well as the number of cattle; and the very great success of the Irish measures, and the great effectiveness of the new systemic insecticides, is it not unfair to the farmers who use these insecticides that their cattle stand to be re-infested by the cattle of people who do not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Warble Fly (14 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what information he has regarding the extent of warble fly infestation of cattle imported from the Republic of Ireland in each of the last four years; and what is the present level of such infestation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Warble Fly (14 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Do not these spectacular reductions in infestation indicate that if a similar scheme were adopted here this country would avoid the importation of £2 million worth of hides a year from abroad?

Mr Derek Page: asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what surveys of future population distribution and of likely industrial development have been completed by the Eastern Regional Economic Planning Council.

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: East Anglia Planning Council (1 Dec 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Would my hon. Friend explain how in the absence of the conclusions of these reports it is possible to place any reliance on recommendations by the council regarding railway closures? Will he have a word with the Minister of Transport?

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Historic Towns (Pilot Survey) (1 Nov 1966)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what will be the cost of the pilot survey of historic towns; and how this cost is to be apportioned.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Historic Towns (Pilot Survey) (1 Nov 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Does not the Joint Parliamentary Secretary agree that it is very unfair that King's Lynn should already have spent £2,000 on a survey for the preservation of this ancient centre? Does he not agree that since the benefits of this new survey will be available to the whole nation there is no reason in the world why the local authority should bear any of this cost?

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Would my hon. Friend agree that often it is very much easier for a family to move from London to an overspill area or new town than it is to move from just a few miles away, even though members of the family are working in the area? Would he not agree that, as well as the point which he is making, there is a need for greater co-operation between overspill areas or new towns and the...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I want to add my welcome to the Bill, which is thoroughly admirable as far as it goes. It is a very brave and proper move in expanding investment in the infrastructure of the country on a large scale, and will result not only in better living conditions for many people but in a much greater industrial efficiency, which is what we need. I express a particular word of appreciation for the long...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: The hon. Gentleman is simply repeating the argument which I was putting. During that period, we were consolidating the new towns which had been founded and we then started on the second generation of new towns. I was coming to the £800 million. This is £250 million more than the present limit, and I refer to the Sections of the 1965 Act whereby this money is to be made available. It is...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Nothing said by the Joint Parliamentary Secretary today will do anything to resolve that. The hon. Gentleman has left many points unresolved. Is there any intermediate stage in the transfer between the Commission and the local authorities? Is there a take-over directly from the corporations by the local authorities? Will the Minister wait for the Report of the Royal Commission on Local...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I assure the hon. Gentleman that we will have some battles when this Clause comes up for debate in Committee. I do not know whether we will have any battles over Clause 3 because, frankly, I cannot see the purpose of it. It is a silly little provision which tells the corporations not to send copies of their accounts to the Comptroller and Auditor General. Is it a great trouble to send the...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Will my hon. Friend comment on the point I made about King's Lynn's costs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Machine-franked Mail (26 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: asked the Postmaster-General what steps he proposes to allow reception of machine-franked mail after normal Post Office hours.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Machine-franked Mail (26 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: While I am delighted to hear that head postmasters have been given instructions to help where possible, may I ask whether my hon. Friend can say precisely what form this help takes? Will he give an assurance that he will look into the position at King's Lynn and make sure that all possible help is being given to firms there?
