Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (13 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I am sorry to add to the interruptions, but I wish to ask whether other companies in relation to Canada are observing the same conditions as B.O.A.C. observes. Are all the nations breaking the Chandler agreement so far as it relates to Canada?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (13 May 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: The subject of night testing of jet aircraft was also included in the Petition. That is an equal nuisance, and one which ought to have been overcome.

Orders of the Day — Schedule 2. — (Constitution and General Functions of Greater London Council.) ( 2 Apr 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: Is not the hon. Gentleman aware the London weight applies to the whole of the metropolitan area and not only to the London County Council?

Orders of the Day — Schedule 2. — (Constitution and General Functions of Greater London Council.) ( 2 Apr 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: The teachers will not be transferred to the Greater London Council, but to the education authority.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 68. — (Transitional Assistance to Certain Counties.) ( 1 Apr 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I cannot help feeling that the Minister has been less than generous in this matter, having regard to the representations that were made to him. I strongly support the view expressed by my hon. Friend the Member for Fulham (Mr. M. Stewart), because, obviously, the people who will bear this burden are not concerned with the matter—the ratepayers of Middlesex and of London. This is essentially...

Orders of the Day — Clause 30. — (Local Education Authori Ties.) ( 1 Apr 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: It is interesting to look back a little into history. It is no secret that the Ministry of Education itself was strongly opposed to breaking up the system of education in London. It made perfectly clear before the Royal Commission that it regarded the system of education in London as being a good one, offering criticism of the Middlesex system as opposed to the London system, criticism which...

Orders of the Day — Clause 30. — (Local Education Authori Ties.) ( 1 Apr 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his intervention. He has said, perhaps more cogently than I could have done, the sort of things that I have been trying to say. In any case, it creates for a period of five years uncertainty with regard to the future of education in central London. It will have done a good deal of harm in the outer London areas, but that apparently does not worry the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 30. — (Local Education Authori Ties.) ( 1 Apr 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: That is part of the inflexibility—having no mind at all.

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (22 Mar 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I have much pleasure in supporting the Second Reading of the Bill. I have no intention of going into the detail, which has been done so well by the hon. Member for the Isle of Ely (Sir H. Legge-Bourke) in his speech. The hon. Member has spoken forcefully and honestly in favour of something which he profoundly believes to be necessary in the interests of the public, a view which I strongly...

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (22 Mar 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I think that he has achieved a national reputation in drawing attention to defects and that is not usually applicable generally to other agents. I would accept that that generally is the position, but I am not really arguing that in a particular advertisement a person who is selling a house, and obviously has knowledge of it, should, when putting in the advertisement, draw attention to...

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (22 Mar 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: Obviously, it would be very difficult to insert in an advertisement the precise details of what some people might regard as a defect but others would not. It is not always a question of there being something structurally wrong. There may be something in the layout which to some people constitutes a defect, but to others would not. It is difficult to say in that sense that that is a defect....

London Government Bill (Allocation of Time) (29 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I am concerned not so much with the circumstances surrounding the introduction of the guillotine as with the overall position arising from the endeavours of the Government to curtail our discussions. These are vitally important matters. They concern the question of bringing people to live together in certain communities and the extent to which there may be a desire by people to live together....

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (24 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I wish to raise one or two matters from a rather different point of view. I have seen, and have been connected with, the problems of local government which have been related to centralisation rather than to decentralisation. I am sure that the Minister will agree that the problems of decentralisation are infinitely greater than those of centralisation. The new council will be concerned with...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (24 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: I appreciate that, Sir William. I am a party to an Amendment which proposes the date of 1967, but there is no particular merit in that date. The year 1964 is impossible for all sorts of reasons, but 1967 is equally impossible. As has been said, it is possible that the present Government will not be in office by 1964. There is a good deal to be said for not fixing a date when a General...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: In the Seventh Schedule to the 1958 Act, special provision was made for a borough included in a rural area to carry out the functions which it had under its charter. If it were necessary to include such special provision then, what is the difficulty now concerning these proposed new boroughs? If this Amendment is not accepted, the position of these new London boroughs will be as it would have...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: The point which arises here is perhaps rather wider than that put by my hon. Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington (Mr. Skeffington). He said that a councillor would represent about 4,000 inhabitants, but in fact the wards will consist of about 12,000 inhabitants—and that is the factor which matters. The ward will elect three councillors, so that any one of them may at any time be...

London Government Bill: Clause 1. — (London Boroughs.) (23 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: Would the hon. Gentleman say what local authority associations have agreed to this?

London Government Bill: London Government Bill (23 Jan 1963)

Mr George Pargiter: Uxbridge is supposed to marry Southall, not Southend.

Local Government (General Grant) (19 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Will the right hon. Gentleman explain the meaning of the words "as soon as possible", as that will obviously be considerably important to local authorities?

Local Government (General Grant) (19 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I am sure that my hon. Friend would not wish to be under a misapprehension. The local authority associations have not said anything of the kind. All that the local authority associations have said is that if the Government want to look at the rate deficiency grant they must look at it and that they cannot use the rate deficiency grant for that purpose. In fact, we are on record in precisely...

Find this exact word or phrase

You can also do this from the main search box by putting exact words in quotes: like "cycling" or "hutton report"

By default, we show words related to your search term, like “cycle” and “cycles” in a search for cycling. Putting the word in quotes, like "cycling", will stop this.

Excluding these words

You can also do this from the main search box by putting a minus sign before words you don’t want: like hunting -fox

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.

Date range

to

You can give a start date, an end date, or both to restrict results to a particular date range. A missing end date implies the current date, and a missing start date implies the oldest date we have in the system. Dates can be entered in any format you wish, e.g. 3rd March 2007 or 17/10/1989
