Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (24 Jun 1952)

Mr William Cove: I do not intend to delay the House for long, but, quite frankly, I have given some amount of thought and study to these proposals and I can find neither rhyme nor reason in them. The proposals are irrational, and, so far as they attempt to be rational, they are derisory. There is no doubt about that. I take rooted objection to the approach to this problem which was adumbrated by the Financial...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (24 Jun 1952)

Mr William Cove: That is exactly what I was saying. It is no good hon. Members excusing themselves for what they are now doing by saying that it was done by the Labour Government. Even if the Labour Government did it, that does not necessarily make it right. Now is the day of salvation for the Tory Party in relation to this. The proposal is irrational, there is no rhyme or reason in it and the amounts are...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (24 Jun 1952)

Mr William Cove: Financial Resolutions are very tricky things, but if I had a chance I would put down an Amendment to raise the amount. I cannot guarantee that because it depends on whether or not it would be in order. If I had my own way I would reject the Bill. I fundamentally disagree that the problem should be approached from the point of view of hardship. I profoundly disagree that the Bill should tinker...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) [Money] (24 Jun 1952)

Mr William Cove: I support the protest. I am not quite sure that what my hon. Friend the Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) has said in relation to this Resolution is not too generous. This is a very tightly drawn Financial Resolution, and if it goes through as it is now it will make a farce of the Committee proceedings. I should have thought the wise thing for the Government to do would be to respond to what...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) [Money] (24 Jun 1952)

Mr William Cove: My hon. Friend had better look it up; I do not want to go into detail at this time of the night. I ask hon. Gentlemen opposite to join with us in seeing that the Committee stage will be a real one, in which we can deal with the points made by both sides of the House. If not, I hope my hon. Friends on this side of the Committee will vote against this Financial Resolution.

Education, Wales (11 Mar 1952)

Mr William Cove: On a point of order. Could the Minister tell us how the Welsh authorities have responded to Circular 242?

Welsh Affairs ( 4 Feb 1952)

Mr William Cove: The right hon. and learned Gentleman spoke in Welsh?

Welsh Affairs ( 4 Feb 1952)

Mr William Cove: Before we leave the subject of education, will the right hon. and learned Gentleman tell me where the Ministerial responsibility lies? As I have known the position over many years, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education has been the Minister responsible. Personally, I see no great advantages in going to Cardiff. I am concerned to find where Ministerial responsibility lies...

Welsh Affairs ( 4 Feb 1952)

Mr William Cove: It is merely a change of residence. I may be wrong, but there seems to be no further devolution whatever of powers in the educational field as a result of this step.

Mr William Cove: Do I understand the right hon. and learned Gentleman to say that the functions would be limited to a study and an investigation of conditions in Wales?
