Orders of the Day — Remuneration of Teachers Bill (20 Nov 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: It is the senior surgeon, the one who puts on the final patches, who really matters, and he is the one to whom I am referring in this case. Reference has been made to suspicion of what the Minister intended to do and questions have been asked about our change of attitude, but one is ready to trust a friend with power which one would not entrust to a person whom one would expect to have very...

Orders of the Day — Remuneration of Teachers Bill (20 Nov 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: Would the hon. Member carry his argument to its logical conclusion, that in every sphere in which Government money is paid and is obviously recognised as being paid partly for salaries, the Government should be represented in the negotiating machinery and play an increasing part regarding the amount they pay in?

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Clause 2. — (Short Title and Application to Northern Ireland.) (17 Nov 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: Sir Harry, would it be appropriate here for me to refer to the Commonwealth Immigration Act?

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill (17 Nov 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: I hope not to detain the Committee too long tonight, but as my constituency was the only one during the election which was dishonoured by having a Fascist candidate I can speak with some feeling on the problem. When one considers that in these enlightened days a person of that kind can seek election to Parliament, whose only election programme was "Keep Britain White" and who collected some...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill (17 Nov 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: The hon. Gentleman should learn the facts of life and about how long it takes P.A.Y.E. to catch up with a man. A stranger coming to the House of Commons today and hearing the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. Wise) moving his Amendment and knowing nothing of our politics might have wondered what the Labour Government has been doing for the last 10 years. We now have to deal with factors which are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Petrol (Octane Rating) (26 Mar 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the Minister of Power whether he will take the necessary steps to oblige petrol distributors to display clearly the octane rating of the various brands of petroleum as well as the respective retail price.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Petrol (Octane Rating) (26 Mar 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: Surely octane rating is the valid test of every petrol. Is not the hon. Gentleman aware that petrol can be sold with any sort of claim but that unless there is some standard by which the public can judge, in this as in many other things covered by the Merchandise Marks Act, it will not have the sort of protection it should have? Should not this be considered?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Petrol (Octane Rating) (26 Mar 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: It is octane rating that is used in the testing of engines by the manufacturers and if it were established generally as a test, would not the public be in a better position to know what it was buying?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Pecuniary Interests) Bill (13 Mar 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: I support this modest Bill, which is designed to clarify what is recognised to be a difficult legal position—though we have to admit at once that the matter is incapable of precise interpretation because no one can decide the particular point at which an interest begins, whether it be large or small. To a large extent the decision must always be a matter of the common sense of the...

Rating (Interim Relief) Bill: Clause 8. — (Interpretation.) (19 Feb 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: When my hon. Friend replies will he also deal with the point that an authority which, by virtue of the nature of the new rating regulations, has no increase in rates at all, if it has the proportion of old people prescribed in the Bill, will receive the benefit which the Bill provides, without having any increase at all for those it is supposed to be relieving?

Rating (Interim Relief) Bill: Clause 8. — (Interpretation.) (19 Feb 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: This is probably one of the most slipshod Bills that has been presented to the House during the time that I have been a Member. Hardly any Member is really in favour of it, but we are being virtually blackmailed into passing it because of the desperate need of authorities to receive some form of assistance from the central Government to deal with the ever-increasing problem of rising rates....

Rating (Interim Relief) Bill: Clause 8. — (Interpretation.) (19 Feb 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: This is specifically designed to be given in general relief of rates. Therefore, there can be no question of it being used specifically.

Orders of the Day — Overseas Affairs (15 Nov 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: While we are discussing the Commonwealth, there is one matter connected with persons who come into this country from the Commonwealth to which I should like to refer. I have tabled an Amendment to the Address which indicates the importance with which I regard this problem, but I take it that it will have the same fate as most of the unofficial Amendments and therefore the only opportunity I...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I beg to move, in page 2, line 44, to leave out Clause 3. It is a pity that Clause 3 has been inserted in a Bill which is otherwise generally acceptable as a very beneficial Bill indeed, and which is welcomed by all persons and authorities concerned. It is significant that all the provisions of the Bill, apart from the Clause, are enabling powers for local authorities. The Clause is...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I did not say that it was sufficiently repugnant to the County Councils Association. I was expressing my view that I would object to the Clause and would carry that objection to its logical conclusion, in the same way presumably as my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Mr. Reynolds) is prepared to carry the Clause, even though it is not important, and thus jeopardise the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I am sorry that this matter has been introduced. It has nothing to do with the matter which is under discussion. Since, however, it has been introduced with a one-sided implication concerning the associations, I might say that the opposition of the associations to this matter was that the people who there purported to represent British local government were individually chosen and were not...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: Would not my hon. Friend put it the other way? Rather than insist on something going into the Bill which is controversial, would it not be far better to withdraw it at this stage and let the matter be properly discussed elsewhere?

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I would not wish to imply some sort of invidious position for members. My case is that there are existing powers and organisations to do this job, and our job is to see that they do it. Like every other hon. Member, I want to see as much education as possible, but there are channels through which it should be done.

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I am not speaking of Members of Parliament in this sense but of members of local authorities.

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Extension of Powers of Local Authorities to Pay Subscriptions.) (17 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I congratulate the hon. Member for Hexham (Mr. Speir) upon the remarkable success which he has achieved with his Bills. He has created something of a record in the number of useful Bills that he has brought forward. I welcome the Bill—apart from the point to which I have expressed my objection—and the so-called backward looking local authority associations to which reference has been...
