Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Tenants (Three-year Leases) (25 Oct 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Having regard to the very great shortage of accommodation, is the right hon. Gentleman aware—I am sure he must be—of the very large number of new tenants forced to accept exorbitant terms because they cannot get a roof over their heads in any other way?

Navy Estimates, 1960–61: S. G. Brown Limited (Sale) (28 Jun 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Does the right hon. Gentleman think that the capital of a firm, resting as it does on Government security, is risk capital?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Distribution of Industry (17 May 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the President of the Board of Trade the arrangements between his Department and firms receiving assistance under the Distribution of Industry Acts; and whether it is his general policy that a contractual undertaking should be entered into.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Sherry and Port (17 May 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what information he has with regard to the extent to which brewers have reduced the price of sherry and port by the glass over the counter to their customers following his Budget reduction in the heavy wine duties; and how the procedure of the trade in this respect compares with that following the reduction of the Beer Duties in the Budget of 1959.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Sherry and Port (17 May 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: What evidence has the Chancellor of this? Is he aware that the evidence I have is that there has been no reduction at all in the price of port and sherry by the glass over the counter and that the brewers have decided not to pass on the relief given in his Budget?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Sherry and Port (17 May 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Having regard to what has happened generally with the price of beer, to which there is also a reference in the Question, and the fact that there is no question of licensees fixing the price of beer because that is fixed by the brewers, may I ask why there is a difficulty about the brewers determining what the price ought to be in this case?

Class IX: Nurses (Educational Qualification) (13 Apr 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I agree with the hon. Lady the Member for Tynemouth (Dame Irene Ward) that we want the nursing profession to be treated as a whole and treated with equal esteem. The hon. Lady welcomes the Nurses Rules. I cannot welcome them in the same context, because it seems to me that they will tend to do precisely the opposite to what we want. Whether or not these are the correct educational...

Class IX: Nurses (Educational Qualification) (13 Apr 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: My hon. Friend has misinterpreted what I am saying.

Class IX: Nurses (Educational Qualification) (13 Apr 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I am talking not of the qualification of the nurse, but the qualification for entry into the profession, which is entirely different to the qualification which she must have. Whether this is the right standard or not, my view would be that it is desirable that there should be a general idea that they will have sufficient educational knowledge and background to be able to absorb the material...

Orders of the Day — N.a.T.O. ( 4 Apr 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I support what my right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition said in congratulating the Chancellor on the clarity of his Budget. The clarity of what he meant may be indicated by the absence of the Chancellor's hon. Friends from the benches opposite. One can only assume that they have gone to commiserate with their friends who will be caught as the result of the new proposals the...

Orders of the Day — N.a.T.O. ( 4 Apr 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I am glad to have had that interruption. I wish that the electorate would remember how much the cost of living rose after the Tories came into power. The country had to struggle against rising prices at home, rising import prices, and so on, when the Labour Party was power. If the public realised the facts, they would demand another election very quickly indeed, because those are the facts....

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (30 Mar 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: My only excuse for intervening in a debate on Northern Ireland is that I happen to represent a trade union which is very concerned with the vast number of skilled workers in Northern Ireland, so many of whom are now unemployed. This has been a matter of continuing anxiety to my union. Representations have been made by the union to the Board of Trade and the Ministry of Supply over a long...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (30 Mar 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Northern Ireland increases its population, but it is decreased by emigration. Exactly the same is happening in Southern Ireland. There is considerable emigration from Northern Ireland, especially among skilled workers. I should have thought that Northern Ireland could ill afford to lose such workers, but inevitably they will be lost. Though a man may not wish to leave his home country, he...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (30 Mar 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I appreciate what has happened and I realise that there is an inability to provide proper employment for the workers. We know that shipbuilding will face difficulties in any case, and we know the problems concerning ship repairing. We know that there will be intensive competition between Northern Ireland, Scotland and Britain for ship repairing, quite apart...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (30 Mar 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I spoke of the Britannic, which I understood to be a commercial version of the Britannia.

Mr George Pargiter: rose—

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (30 Mar 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, if this contract is not signed before long, such is the present rate of obsolescence that we shall require to start upon a new design?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Rhodesia: Africans (Technical Training) (16 Feb 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what facilities exist in Northern Rhodesia for Africans to receive elementary training which will enable them to qualify for training as engineers or technical experts; what qualifications are required for such positions; and how many Africans receive training or qualify outside the territory.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Rhodesia: Africans (Technical Training) (16 Feb 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: While I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for promising to circulate an Answer in the OFFICIAL REPORT, may I say that I hope it will be rather more instructive than previous Answers have been and indicative of a very much greater effort in this direction than there has been in the past? After all, would not the right hon. Gentleman agree that it is not much good our complaining about...

Orders of the Day — Public Bodies (Admission of the Press to Meetings) Bill ( 5 Feb 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Further to that point of order. Is it not a well-established fact and in accordance with the precedents that once the Long Title to a Bill has been settled on Second Reading it cannot be altered? Any alteration of the Long Title must surely be made in the course of an Amendment to the Bill at this stage.
