Orers of the Day: Clause 15. — (Penalty for Unauthorised Dumping.) (14 Apr 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: Still speaking from the point of view of a stupid, ignorant magistrate, I wonder what the devil one will do. I will not name a local authority, because that would be casting aspersions, but I can think of several local authorities in the area covered by the court in which I sit which would not be very forward in providing such dumps. I think that the barrister would find it very easy to tie...

Orers of the Day: Clause 16. — (Removal of Abandoned Vehicles.) (14 Apr 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I was disappointed by the Parliamentary Secretary's reply, because this group of Clauses are not only some of the most important in the Bill, but are epoch-making. I do not think that any Western nation which suffers from cars as we do has comparable legislation. It is a tremendous credit to the House, to the sponsors of the Bill and the Government, who have helped them, that we should have...

Orers of the Day: Clause 19. — (Removal and Disposal etc. of Other Refuse.) (14 Apr 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: There are two classes covered by this provision. One is on any land in the open air The objection that has been raised by the Amendment applies very much to this first part. The provision any land in the open air is very wide. We could not expect it to be mandatory on a local authority to remove rubbish on any land in the open air, but there is a different point in on any other land forming...

Orers of the Day: Clause 26. — (Short Title, Commence Ment and Extent.) (14 Apr 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I join in the congratulations to the sponsors which are now in order. I mention particularly my right hon. Friend the Member for Streatham (Mr. Sandys). Various people have been concerned with this matter for some time, but to my certain knowledge he has been concerned with it for more than 12 years. I am sure that it was with this in view that 12 years ago, when he was Minister of Housing...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: The hon. Member for Edmonton (Mr. Albu) gave us a fascinating excursion along the corridors of power. I was not at all surprised, when I heard his description of what was going on in the Department of Economic Affairs, that the casualties were numerous. We all value the hon. Member's "promotion" to the back benches if it leads to further speeches of the same stimulating nature as we have...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising that question. Frankly, I would rather fill in the forms and be free to act than fill in the forms and not be free to act. There is a technical point which is of interest to the Chief Secretary—the unification of sterling. This is a sensible step. There has been no justification in the last few years for having a separate rate for security...

Police ( 9 Feb 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I beg to move, That this House takes note of the First Report from the Estimates Committee and of the Fifth Special Report from the Estimates Committee relating to Police. It is appropriate that this debate should begin with thanks to you, Mr. Speaker, for allowing the debate on the Estimates Committee, and for your patience which I have enjoyed in the past. I would also pay tribute to the...

Police ( 9 Feb 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: The Police Federation is on record in the Report of the Working Party as being in favour of about 15 graduate entrants a year.

Police ( 9 Feb 1967)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: The hon. Member knows very well that there is no certainty whatever that those who go on a Bramshill scholarship to universities will return to the police service.

Committee of Public Accounts (Reports) (28 Nov 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: This is the first time that I have had the pleasure of joining in a debate on a Report from the Public Accounts Committee, and I do so with a due sense of the arduous work undertaken by the members of that Committee, its staff and its Chairman. My Committee work has been on a lighter scale, with the Estimates Committee, or with the Nationalised Industries Committee, neither of which is as...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 5 May 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: Or agriculture.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 4 May 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: It is always very agreeable to congratulate a maiden speaker, and it is particularly so in this case and to congratulate the hon. Member for Consett (Mr. David Watkins) because over the years we have appreciated the contribution which the mining community brings to us and the extremely well-informed speeches which Members from the mining community make when they do speak to us. I think we can...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 4 May 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: First, I should like to congratulate the Chancellor because we had a new style of Budget speech this year. We were spared a lot of history. He dived straight into what he proposed to do in future. I was slightly struck by the resemblance to the new form of company accounts one often sees, where instead of a rather plain profit and loss account one gets a large, elaborate brochure giving...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 4 May 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: My hon. Friend the Member for Worcestershire, South (Sir G. Nabarro) is an expert in these matters. It would be very much more honourable for the Chancellor to say, "I have decided to stop investment by companies in the sterling area". If he had said that I wonder what sort of crisis of confidence he would have had to face. The sterling area balances are up. The sterling area is free to take...

Grants to Universities and Colleges (Estimates Committee's Reports) (26 Jan 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I beg to move, to leave out from "That" to the end of the Question and to add instead thereof: this House takes note of the Fifth Report from the Estimates Committee in the last Session of Parliament and of the Third Special Report from the Estimates Committee, relating to Grants to Universities and Colleges. It is appropriate that I should begin by expressing my gratitude to you, Mr....

Grants to Universities and Colleges (Estimates Committee's Reports) (26 Jan 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I am not qualified to speak for anybody but myself. My own view is that no great damage would ensue, and that many benefits would be gained if universities were accountable to the Comptroller and Auditor General for the expenditure of the public funds which they enjoy.

Grants to Universities and Colleges (Estimates Committee's Reports) (26 Jan 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I would differentiate within the total in that universities may have to be bolder in the expenditure of their own funds than they would be in the expenditure of public money, but this I think would be an encouragement to collect some endowments. Secondly, we might also succeed in making them more in favour of higher fees. This is a personal view and I cannot take my Committee with me on this...

Grants to Universities and Colleges (Estimates Committee's Reports) (26 Jan 1966)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: My hon. Friend is making rather a false distinction. The facts are clear. The colleges of Oxford and Cambridge may pay a reduced rate but they pay something. They make a rating contribution. I am unable to trace any rating contribution by the local authorities of Oxford and Cambridge either to the universities or to the colleges.

Orders of the Day — Territorial Army (16 Dec 1965)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: The hon. Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling) referred to a naval officer hoisting his flag on a minesweeper. I felt that he had rather hoisted his flag on a drifter, and that that drifter was very much at the mercy of the tide. I was relieved when, at the end of his speech, he came back to the subject of this debate and got away from the Royal Navy, a Service which I greatly admire and...

Orders of the Day — Territorial Army (16 Dec 1965)

Major Sir Henry D'Avigdor-Goldsmid: I am disappointed with the hon. Gentleman. I would not have given way if I had thought that he was going to be so disappointing. As a very prominent member of the Estimates Committee who knows its duties I think that he has failed to do it justice. I want to talk about the White Paper, particularly as it affects two units, with which I am very closely associated, as I have the honour to be...
