Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The House might show considerable interest in the manner, approach and vigour of the hon. Member for Bury St. Edmunds (Sir E. Griffiths), who, in view of his constituency responsibilities in Bury St. Edmunds, does not appear to me to have any particular interest in ports. I have an interest in ports as a constituency Member, and I have had some experience of such legislation, so I believe...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: Another hon. Gentleman is rising. I understand that some of the land is owned by Trinity college, Cambridge. The hon. Gentleman is anxious to intervene, but I want to test the veracity of the words spoken by the Secretary of State. I want to put things in such a manner as to test the House, by asking a simple question. Where does truth really lie'? Who is shifting whose feet'? On the...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The hon. Member for Hartlepool who, for the hon. Gentleman's information, happens to be the person holding the Floor at the moment, never suggested that he represented the communities in Suffolk. I said that I had a port interest. It so happens to be the third largest port in the United Kingdom—the Tees and Hartlepool port authority. I was saying that I had had some experience of such...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: I apologise. The hon. Member for Bury St. Edmunds said in his intervention that Suffolk county council was not an objector. It so happens that Suffolk county council, not unlike some other county councils, changed its mind when pressure was put on it. Originally, it objected, as far as I am aware. The proposals are in direct conflict with the county council's structure plan, which was...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: I understand, Mr. Deputy Speaker, the difficulty in which the Chair finds itself. The first two lines of the new clause read: The Company shall not exercise the powers conferred by section 6"— I must refer, therefore, to section 6— of this Act without first obtaining the consent in writing of the Secretary of State in any case". The difference between section 6 and the wording of new...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The hon. Gentleman has a remarkable record in the House of Commons of which, I am happy to say, he ought to be proud, and the House should not in any way impugn his character by words of the kind that he has used. That is not the intention. It was not he, but the Secretary of State, in the name of his party, who gave certain undertakings only a short while ago; and those undertakings have...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: I shall try to make the same point and keep in order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. In the example that I have described to the House, the use of this land in a further incursion into the environment would have devastating effects on an area that has been agreed by the Government to be an area of natural beauty. It is a pity that we have not been able to defend the Secretary of State's first assertion...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I seek your advice on a matter of importance to the House and of relevance to the new clause. It has been raised with you previously, but having thought about the issue, I realise that we are placed in a special difficulty. It is on record in the minutes of the Committee that the Secretary of State for the Environment said that there were certain...

Felixstowe Dock and Railway Bill (By Order): Consent of Secretary of State Required for Certain Works (15 Jul 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The Minister is correct insofar as he has gone. It is not unusual for a Minister to monitor for another, but it is an unusual practice for the House of Commons to be deprived, not of monitoring, which is a matter between Ministers, but of the opportunity of challenging the Secretary of State for the Environment or the appropriate Minister on the firm undertakings given in 1982, as we have...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (26 Jun 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The Chair recognises the traditions of the House of Commons. Plainly, if the hon. Lady or any right hon. or hon. Member indicates that there is no wish to give way, it gives other hon. Members the right to come back when the hon. Lady or other right hon. or hon. Members sit down. In Committee, the traditions of the House are upheld, and the right hon. Gentleman will rise when the hon. Lady...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (26 Jun 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: There is no change of mind. It is traditional in Committee that if a right hon. or hon. Member wishes to rise on the subject matter of the amendment, he is free to do so.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (26 Jun 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The hon. Member has made an assumption. I understand why he has made it. There is some anxiety to deal with the business before the Committee in a manner approved and accepted by it. I give the assurance that this Chariman will comply wholly and strictly with the Standing Orders that control the Committee. No one will influence my rulings.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Extended Meaning of "the Treaties" and "the Community Treaties" (26 Jun 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following amendments: No. 6, in page 1, line 13, after 'Communities)', insert 'but not paragraph 1 of Article 16 thereof. No. 8, in page 1, line 13, after 'Communities)', insert 'but not Article 19 thereof. No. 15, in page 1, line 13, after 'Communities)', insert 'but not Article 13 thereof'. No. 18, in page 1, line 13, after 'Communities)',...

Oral Answers to Questions: South Africa (19 May 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: The Secretary of State has said several times that he has condemned the action. The interesting question to put to him now is simply this: if that is all that he is to do, what impact will that condemnation have on President Botha, and what impression will that condemnation, without any other action, have upon the Commonwealth countries affected?

Oral Answers to Questions: Freight (Grants) (19 May 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: asked the Secretary of State for Transport what was the cash limit for grants under section 8 of the Railways Act 1974 for the years 1979 to 1986, inclusive; and what was the total sum authorised for section 8 expenditure in those years.

Oral Answers to Questions: Freight (Grants) (19 May 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: Will the Minister give some precise information about this year? It is suggested that the authorisation limits have now been reached and that any further applications under section 8 will not be accepted. Is that the position? Will the Minister clarify what the position is this year so that the industry may know what response to expect from its applications?

Clause 7: Authorisation of Public Gas Suppliers (17 Mar 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: I hope that, before the guillotine falls and we all leave this place, harmed and hurt, the Minister will resolve not to create an international crisis, as his colleague the Under-Secretary of State tried to do with the last group of amendments. I thought, on listening to the hon. Gentleman, that the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries was going to call my emergency meeting and that...

Clause 7: Authorisation of Public Gas Suppliers (17 Mar 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: One of the outstanding features of the work of the Select Committee on Energy has been the recognition of the Secretary of State's enthusiasm for energy efficiency. We have accorded to the present Secretary of State not only our fullest support, but, out of step with the normal practice of criticism, we have underlined our enthusiasm for his influence in this area through the work of the...

Clause 7: Authorisation of Public Gas Suppliers (17 Mar 1986)

Mr Edward Leadbitter: My hon. Friend referred to columns 471–2 and others of the Official Report of the Standing Committee, and also said that a similar amendment was considered by the Committee. Am I correct in thinking that some Conservative Members, who have appended their names to this amendment, did not vote for that similar amendment in Committee?
