Dissolution of Parliament (26 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: If we were able under the Labour Government to get away to a flying start, why have the Tories not followed it up? They have failed, and that is because of their fundamental belief in free enterprise. They are now being forced to plan because their policy of free enterprise has consistently failed and they are in trouble. When the Labour Government tried to plan, it was constantly under...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Rates (29 May 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is not really a year in which Ministers will take notice of what takes place at the Conservative Women's Annual Conference but that there soon will be a year when more notice will probably be taken?

Cambridge Waterworks Order, 1962 ( 8 May 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Further to that point of order. Is the position not this, Mr. Deputy-Speaker? What we have before us at the moment is the Cambridge Waterworks Order, 1962, against which a Prayer is moved that it be annulled, to which an Amendment is to be moved that a Petition be considered by a Committee of both Houses, and that this House is not being asked to consider the merits of the Petition? It is...

Cambridge Waterworks Order, 1962 ( 8 May 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I think it rather unfortunate that the Parliamentary Secretary should have chosen to reject this very reasonable request out of hand. We do not at this stage wish to argue the merits of the particular organisation. The Minister will be aware that on this side of the House there is a good deal of objection to public undertakings of this kind being taken over. One has only to recollect the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Motorways (11 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the Minister of Transport if he will give particulars of his proposals for a supplementary motorway network, in addition to that already announced.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Motorways (11 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Is the Minister aware that the earliest possible intimation should be given about future projects, particularly to local authorities, in order that their own road programmes can be fitted to suit the schemes the right hon. Gentleman might have in mind?

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I am sure that the hon. Member will be aware that a smoke meter is in use on the Continent quite regularly and it is regarded as being sufficiently satisfactory for the purposes describe in the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I am glad to have the opportunity in a few words to welcome this Bill. I will come first to the point mentioned earlier, namely, that there is a Road Traffic Bill already before the House. I would have thought it desirable for the Minister to have a look at this Bill and then to include those things which are practical and possible in the Government's own Bill. This question of diesel fumes...

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Yes. They are used on the side of the road. There is no special difficulty or problem about that.

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I will arrange for it to be transmitted. I took it from a technical engineer, who satisfied me that this was the practice and that they had roadside meters which can be easily used for the purpose. I will confirm it with him.

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Confirmation is coming from the two sides to enforce my case for the meter as a practical proposition, and I ask the Minister and the hon. Gentleman to look carefully at the question of 48 hours, because to give 48 hours' notice to somebody who is responsible for smoke emission is quite useless. There is another aspect which is not included in the Bill, perhaps because it is a technical one,...

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I would hesitate to put into a bill of this kind anything about power weight ratio factors, because I am sure that the Minister would find himself in very deep water in consequence.

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: It may be, but the power weight ratios can be corrected, of course. I would hope that the Minister would put a provision into his Road Traffic Bill saying that a vehicle should carry a plate indicating the gross load which the vehicle is supposed to carry. I may have something to say to the Minister about that on another occasion. It would get over the question, because the weight on the...

Orders of the Day — Diesel Fumes Bill ( 6 Apr 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: It is accepted that carbon monoxide emission from diesel engines is very slight and to nothing like the lethal extent of the emission from motor cars. Therefore, carbon monoxide is not a material factor either way.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Aviation: Avro 748 and Dart Herald Aircraft ( 5 Mar 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the Minister of Aviation why the Avro 748 is preferred to the Handley Page Dart Herald as a replacement transport aircraft.

Preventive Justice (Abolition of Powers) (20 Feb 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: On a point of order. Is this a Ten Minutes Rule Bill?

Orders of the Day — London Government (20 Feb 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Would the hon. Gentleman say that any authority other than the L.C.C. ought to have regard for the same sort of factors? Assuming that there was a large private estate in Hendon, would the right hon. Gentleman say that it must give houses to Hendon people?

Orders of the Day — London Government (20 Feb 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I hope that what I shall say will not be regarded as being partisan, because I am a member of an authority which is to be completely abolished under these proposals. I have been a member of the Middlesex County Council now for twenty-eight years. For a long time I have been in some position of authority, either in a minority or in a majority, and, therefore, to some extent responsible for...

Orders of the Day — London Government (20 Feb 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Some of the houses were built inside and some outside the boundaries, but the point is that the houses were built because the powers were available. There has been a proposal that town clerks should be invited to hear the objections and observations of the boroughs in the Greater London area and then refer their recommendations to the Minister. Peripheral areas where two-tier authorities...

Orders of the Day — London Government (20 Feb 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: The hon. Member speaks of a division of opinion, but will he not agree that Middlesex County Council is unanimously opposed to the White Paper, and that, presumably, he is a party to that decision?
