Oral Answers to Questions — Nyasaland: Building Industry (23 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: Does the Under-Secretary consider this to be at all adequate, having regard to the fact that this is one of the industries in which artisans are being trained in the building industry, technical colleges and elsewhere? How unfortunate it would be if there were not adequate avenues of employment for them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Rhodesia: Secondary Industries (23 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: While I am very glad to receive that assurance that some attention is being given to this problem, the Under-Secretary will be aware that a good deal of the prosperity of Southern Rhodesia in secondary industries at present has been based on the copper revenues which have been derived from Northern Rhodesia. Is it not time that some of those revenues were diverted so that they may enjoy the...

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: We have listened, first, to forty-five minutes of defence by an hon. Member of a company in which he has an interest. We have now been listening further to matters which are hardly germane to this debate.

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: We have wasted enough time—

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: Whilst the subject was relevant, the remarks were highly irrelevant.

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: My concern is about the aircraft crash at Southall, in my constituency. I was on the scene of the crash shortly afterwards. If the hon. Member for Bournemouth, East and Christchurch (Mr. N. Nicolson) had been there, he might not have been so concerned as he has been in the defence of the people who have been so scathingly condemned in this Report. I want to come to certain of the facts...

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: It is equally true that the ground upon which the coroner was asked to adjourn the inquest was that it was pending the inquiry—in other words, that the inquiry would proceed. The inquiry did not proceed. At the end of October or, possibly, the beginning of November, although there had been no inquiry or request in the meantime, the coroner received a request through the local superintendent...

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: I did not expect it.

Mr George Pargiter: By not a very large majority.

Orders of the Day — Messrs. S. G. Brown LTD. (25 Jun 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: Under the circumstances, I am sorry for the hon. Member for Watford (Mr. Farey-Jones). He has done his best in the difficult situation in which the Admiralty has put him. One can appreciate and accept his declaration that he does not believe in the nationalisation of any industry and that he believes that the workers of the firm would do just as well under private enterprise ownership as...

Orders of the Day — Messrs. S. G. Brown LTD. (25 Jun 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: If that is the best argument we are going to hear, that cheap kind of jibe, it is a very good illustration of the weakness of the case from the Government Front Bench for the disposal of this firm.

Orders of the Day — Messrs. S. G. Brown LTD. (25 Jun 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: Let us look at this matter as an experiment in Socialism.

Orders of the Day — Messrs. S. G. Brown LTD. (25 Jun 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: Apart from loans, the Government have invested, approximately, £300,000 in the company. Over a period of years they have taken approximately £154,000 in dividends, which is not too bad. I admit that it is not on the scale that private investors demand, but it is not too bad. They now hold £500,000 share capital and have assets worth £1,250,000. That is not a bad experiment in Socialism, is it?

Orders of the Day — Messrs. S. G. Brown LTD. (25 Jun 1959)

Mr George Pargiter: It is so successful that the company has to be disposed of before we on this side of the House come into power because we might be inclined to continue an experiment of this kind. Such things as this must be got rid of. It is necessary, in the view of the Government, to dispose of anything which could possibly be regarded as a success in case there is a tendency on the part of a future...
