Orders of the Day — ANGLESEY MARINE TERMINAL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (28 Feb 1972)

Mr Cledwyn Hughes: ...cost will be about £50 million. It has been suggested that the present planning procedures are unsuitable for this kind of project and that the fact that the seaward project needs a Private Bill while the landward works are subject to a planning procedure creates an unevenness of treatment and places a financial burden on objectors. My experience on the Bill and the planning inquiry, and...

Orders of the Day — MILFORD DOCKS BILL [Lords] (By Order) (28 Feb 1972)

Mr Michael English: ...proposal to nationalise the docks as part of their policy. It may be pure coincidence. I sincerely hope it is. But one thing the hon. Gentleman cannot say is that it is not a coincidence that this Bill is before us, since the Mersey Docks and Harbour Act came before us because of two things: first, the election of 1970, after which it was unlikely that any docks would be nationalised, and,...

Inland Waterways (Improvement of Navigation) (22 Feb 1972)

Mr John Parker: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to establish a central authority with powers to control navigation on all inland waterways in England and Wales. The Department of the Environment has stated that it will adopt a policy based on a recent report to create regional group water authorities. It will replace 1,400 water supply and sewerage organisations with 10 by 1974. These...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Housing Revenue Accounts (21 Feb 1972)

Mr Caerwyn Roderick: Is the Minister aware that the Housing Finance Bill anticipates such a surplus in that it makes provision about what is to happen to such a surplus? How does he justify handing over the use of this surplus to the Department of the Environment? Will he explain why it is that the better-off tenants of local authorities will be expected to help the poorer tenants in private houses and local...

Coal Industry (Wilberforce Report) (21 Feb 1972)

Mr Roy Jenkins: ...that the only enemy of the Government and the British people is inflation—which, in itself, will command widespread support—will he explain how valuable an auxiliary is the Housing Finance Bill under the direction of his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons (21 Feb 1972)

Mr David Weitzman: ...something which had never been done by a previous Conservative Government. The years passed from 1948 until my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Wythenshawe (Mr. Alfred Morris) introduced his Bill. Up till then not a single piece of legislation had been introduced by any Conservative Government to assist the chronically sick. When my hon. Friend the Member for Wythenshawe introduced...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Holiday Extension and Early Retirement) Bill (18 Feb 1972)

Mr Robert Edwards: I apologise for not being present when my good friend the Member for Birmingham, Small Heath (Mr. Denis Howell) presented his Bill. I was reading letters down below. I realise that it is unforgivable to seek to participate in a debate without having listened to the earlier speeches, but I am sure that on some occasion or other all hon. Members have been placed in this situation. I hope that...

Orders of the Day — European Communities Bill (17 Feb 1972)

Mr John Pardoe: In the debate there have been four major themes; the principle of our entry into Europe; the terms; the matter in the Bill; and who will win tonight and by how much. On the first two of those, I have always supported the principle ever since I can remember being politically conscious; and the terms, though not ideal, seem to be as good as could have been obtained by any Government in the last...

Owner Occupation (Help for Private Landlords' Tenants to Purchase) (15 Feb 1972)

Mr Frank Allaun: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to give tenants of private property owners the right to purchase their dwellings at a reasonable price before the properties are taken out of their present rent control; to encourage local authorities to offer low-deposit or no-deposit mortgages at low interest rates to sitting tenants wishing to buy their homes from their landlords; and...

Orders of the Day — Seaham (14 Feb 1972)

Mr Eldon Griffiths: ...show that the operating surplus was very small indeed. The House will know that the Dock Company, which I understand is now under new and vigorous management, has recently deposited a Private Bill seeking powers to borrow and to develop land. The hon. Gentleman may think that this is an indication of an intention on the company's part to pursue as best it can policies that will benefit...

Orders of the Day — Regional Development Corporation Bill (11 Feb 1972)

Mr William Rodgers: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The impelling motive behind the Bill is simple—that regional policy has failed. Despite the best endeavours of two generations of politicians, of administrators, of publicists, of all of those who have been involved in some place and in some way with regional policy, the problem is still with us very much unchanged. We are running to...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Bill: Statements of Account to Be Related to Actual Consumption of Electricity (10 Feb 1972)

Alan Williams: ...equally deplore this practice. We are talking of deliberately over-estimating. Like him, I am probably difficult to get at for meter reading, and I recognize that I have to put up with estimated bills. I am willing to recognise that if I am over-estimated I am in a better position to meet the over-estimated bills than many of my constituents. But if one board with a populous area, like...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Investment and Export Guarantees Bill (9 Feb 1972)

Mr John Nott: ...investor-oriented; it is not an insurance on behalf of the host country. I do not think that the right hon. Lady is so totally against private investment as she makes out. I welcome this excellent Bill. Practically the first Amendment that I tabled when I became a Member of the House were Amendments to an E.C.G.D. Bill in 1967. Those Amendments, on 13th February, 1967, had the objective...

Scotland (Economic Situation) (7 Feb 1972)

Mr Teddy Taylor: ...the recent example of the tubes division of the British Steel Corporation moving from Glasgow. That decision was taken by the Steel Corporation. We have recently discussed in the House a new Gas Bill to set up a British Gas Authority. The old Scottish Gas Board and the regional gas boards will be replaced. Will this mean a centralisation of jobs? Will the authorities say that there will be...

Orders of the Day — Transport (Grants) Bill (7 Feb 1972)

Mr David Steel: The Bill provides for the Government to make grants to two public transport undertakings in consequence of the restraint that they will exercise on price and fare increases during 1972. The question which I ask basically in my short speech is: why, among the bodies receiving money, is there no mention of the Scottish Transport Group which has undertaken to abide by the C.B.I.'s request until...

Orders of the Day — Employed Persons (Safety) Bill (4 Feb 1972)

Mr John Page: ...an interest in it. My hon. Friend has raised another point which must be considered. Indeed, it is obvious that the whole question of sea-going vessels must be closely examined in relation to the Bill. If they were excluded from its provisions, it would be a much simpler document. My final objection is that the Bill is being presented before we receive the Robens Report. The hon. Member...

ROAD TRAFFIC (FOREIGN VEHICLES) BILL [Lords] (2 Feb 1972)

Mr Eldon Griffiths: I beg to move, That the Chairman do now report to the House that the Committee recommend that the Road Traffic (Foreign Vehicles) Bill [Lords] ought to be read a second time. The Bill deals with the enforcement of our law on foreign goods and passenger vehicles. Over 30,000 journeys a year are now made in this country by foreign goods vehicles, and more will assuredly come as our trade with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Population (1 Feb 1972)

Mr William Molloy: To avoid an excessive burden on his Department, would the right hon. Gentleman be prepared to consider persuading his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment to drop his ridiculous Housing Finance Bill so that the housing position can be tackled in readiness for the increased population?

Ground Rents (Collection) (1 Feb 1972)

Mr Arthur Davidson: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to provide for the compulsory apportionment of existing ground rent charges, and to make new provision for the collection and payment of such charges. This will not be a Ten-Minute Rule Bill; it will be a two-minute rule Bill. The purpose of the proposed Bill is to put an end to an antiquated and complicated system of land tenure,...

Toxic Materials (Disposal) (27 Jan 1972)

Mr John Farr: ...on the Statute Book which enabled him to control tipping on the tip. He has brought into use a number of byelaws. He even tried to introduce another selection of byelaws by means of a Private Bill, some of which were eliminated by the Department of the Environment because it was thought that they went too far in the controlling of tipping. The clerk was kind enough to send me a sample of...
