Orders of the Day — Fraud Investigation (12 Apr 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: Large-scale fraud may be said to be today's fastest growing industry. It is perpetrated increasingly on a national scale with national organisation, through subsidiaries of main companies, through national advertising and, in the case of some types of fraud, through branch establishments in the country. It is interesting to note that the Fraud Squad was created after the last war because...

Orders of the Day — Fraud Investigation (12 Apr 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: I am much obliged, Mr. Speaker. I would advocate for the commission occasional broadcasts on radio and television telling the public about the latest type of fraud so that people would be forewarned. I submit that such broadcasts, if made in good faith, should be exempted from normal actions for defamation; in other words, they should be privileged. The members or officers of the commission...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Electricity and Gas Supplies (Unpaid Bills) (21 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: asked the Minister of Power whether he will give a general direction to area electricity boards that where a medical opinion or certificate is provided stating that a sick child or old person living in an all-electric home is in need of warmth the electricity supply should be resumed or maintained notwithstanding that the householder is in arrears with payments to an area board.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: Electricity and Gas Supplies (Unpaid Bills) (21 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: Would my hon. Friend also direct the electricity boards throughout the country that no one wants profits made at the expense of the aged or of sick children and that they should treat all future cases with the greatest sympathy?

Orders of the Day — Clients' Money (Accounts) Bill (17 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: I appreciate the aims of the Bill, and I would applaud them if I thought that the Bill would do the job for which it is intended, but I could not support a Bill which excluded solicitors while including all other professions. It is wrong to provide for the exclusion of one profession from the rules of accounting because it is suggested that it has its own house in order, while making other...

Orders of the Day — Clients' Money (Accounts) Bill (17 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: I do not dispute that, but when someone complains of a solicitor he does not go to an independent tribunal like the Board of Trade but to other solicitors. This is a matter of principle. If a complaint against an architect has to go to the Board of Trade, which has nothing to do with architects, why should solicitors be exempt? If the hon. Member is saying that the machinery in the Bill is...

Orders of the Day — Clients' Money (Accounts) Bill (17 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: A further astonishing provision in this Clause is that, where a prosecution is instigated apparently by the Board of Trade having investigated the position, it shall not have to pay, because the client may still not get moneys back which he has paid to the Board of Trade for conducting the investigation in the first place if costs are awarded against the prosecution——

Orders of the Day — Clients' Money (Accounts) Bill (17 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: Once the Board of Trade has decided to prosecute, that prosecution means that the Board of Trade has investigated and decided that there is a prima facie case. It is wrong that, at the end of the day, after possibly a lengthy prosecution, costs are awarded against the Board of Trade which may result in forfeiture of money by the person who has complained. This procedure——

Prison Escapes and Security (16 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: The kernal of the problem that we have been debating today is that of achieving swiftly a large number of modern prisons. It is quite clear from the Mountbatten Report that it is impossible to have a proper liberal regime in an old-fashioned prison and, at the same time, to have security. My hon. Friend the Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. Sydney Silverman) demanded civilised prisons, and...

Police ( 9 Feb 1967)

Mr Edward Lyons: Perhaps the most striking thing one notices on first arriving at the House is the courtesy of the police officers on duty in it. They should be mentioned as models of what police officers should be in that respect. My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary seeks to restore the morale of the police, not only in the urgent way we have heard today, by more walkie-talkie sets and so on, but also...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill (12 Dec 1966)

Mr Edward Lyons: Would it not be rather the case that he could say that ten people were satisfied absolutely that he was guilty and not that two thought he was innocent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Consolidation of Enactments (Procedure) Act, 1949 (23 Nov 1966)

Mr Edward Lyons: Would not my right hon. and learned Friend agree that it is a woeful failing in the procedures of this House that one cannot revise or consolidate a particular aspect of the law in one Bill? Would it not be comparatively simple to devise a procedure whereby the present Consolidation Committee of the House simply approved certain passages of a combined Bill and said that they did not involve...

Orders of the Day — Medical Termination of Pregnancy Bill (22 Jul 1966)

Mr Edward Lyons: To make a maiden speech on pregnancy is perhaps a trifle forward, but I have refrained, at times with difficulty, from making earlier speeches in the House the better to ensure my participation in this debate. Mr. Frank McLeavy was my predecessor as Member for Bradford, East. He was a respected Member of the House for 21 years and served the people of Bradford, East conscientiously and well....
