New Clause C: Transitional Arrangements for Discharge of Functions (24 Oct 1972)

Mr Graham Page: ...as to the functions to be carried out by their employing authority, and that the employing authority should work out its management structure at the earliest possible stage. The provisions of the Bill will mean that the statutory responsibility for certain functions will be moved from one level of authority to another. There will be that movement of functions from the position as we know...

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Hon. John Silkin: ..., there are these limits: not inflexible; broad; but, nevertheless, between 250,000 and 1 million. How are we to construe this? The hon. Gentleman the then Under-Secretary at the Department of the Environment, now the Minister for Aerospace, said in Committee—and here is yet another authority for us— If one were to seek authorities in the 100,000, 120,000 or 140,000 range, the local...

Northern Ireland (Planning) (19 Oct 1972)

Mr Merlyn Rees: ...restricted in time it would be worth making at much greater length. The fact is that one and a half hours is just not good enough for an important document such as this. It is the equivalent of a Bill which would take a great deal of time in this House and in Committee. One makes every effort in study and research but I for one do not feel adequate to raise in five or ten minutes all the...

Clause 1: Liberty to Charge for Admission (18 Oct 1972)

Mr John Fraser: I regard this Bill as one of the meanest and most petty of the Session. Some of the other Measures have been expropriation, but this Bill is just mean and petty. I want to restrict my remarks to the question of the access to museums and art galleries by the young on an individual basis. It is no use saying that school parties can go in free, for what really matters is that a child who has...

Forestry (18 Oct 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: ...balance of payments. The import of timber puts a considerable strain on it, to the extent of something like £740 million a year. Indeed, it is among the four biggest items in the nation's import bill. Despite what "Forestry Policy" says, and despite our own efforts, we would still have to import about 80 per cent. of our timber requirements by the end of the century. Despite the call...

European Economic Community (Summit Meeting) (17 Oct 1972)

Mr Roy Jenkins: .... I have no intention of taking back the vote I gave on 28th October last year. There are strong reasons under our party system for voting with one party whenever that is possible. I did so on the Bill. The Bill was Government business and there were legitimate objections to its form. But I regarded Third Reading as the end of that road. I draw a distinction between the Opposition's...

ANGLESEY MARINE TERMINAL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (17 Oct 1972)

Gerald Kaufman: ...I do so he must not then accuse me of making a speech which is perhaps a six-day bore. Let us see what is said about the use of the revenue. A report of the Countryside Commission to do with the environmental problems of the Bill says: On the assumption that revenue from the terminal would be devoted primarily to the environment on work such as restoring areas of dereliction, landscaping...

Ship Repairing (Southampton) (17 Oct 1972)

Mr James Hill: ...is before the 400 employees who are kept on waiting time have been added. Waiting time is a curious form of payment called fall-back pay in the ship-repairing industry which adds to the wages bill each year both of Vosper-Thornycroft and Harland and Wolff approximately £500,000 with no associated productivity. So, to look at it logically, the numbers on waiting time should be added to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing Finance Act (9 Aug 1972)

Mr Geoffrey Finsberg: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many, and which, local authorities in England and Wales have notified him since the Royal Assent was given to the Housing Finance Bill of their intention not to implement the legislation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Closing Orders (Contravention) (9 Aug 1972)

Mr George Cunningham: Is the Minister aware that an Amendment to bring these fines into line with the demands of present-day money values was introduced to the Criminal Justice Bill in the House of Lords by Lord Stow Hill but was rejected purely on the ground that that Bill was a Home Office Bill and not a Department of the Environment Bill? Particularly bearing in mind that the Government accepted an Amendment to...

Roads (North Somerset) (7 Aug 1972)

Mr Jerry Wiggin: ...morning before debating a legal matter, has perhaps been able to get a little of his own back tonight. It does not seem many hours since my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for the Environment came to debate on Second Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill the problems of Bristol's traffic. My hon. Friends the Members for Bridgwater (Mr. Tom King), Wells (Mr. Boscawen) and Bristol,...

Water and Sewage Services (2 Aug 1972)

Mr Nigel Spearing: ...many of the Acts about it have been non-party measures. The first Standing Committee on which I served had a wide measure of agreement on this subject. There is a great national feeling for the environment and about pollution. Water supplies, the inspection of water, ownership and navigation rights and so on are mainly in the hands of public authorities, many of them local authorities....

Traffic Congestion, Bristol (2 Aug 1972)

Mr Michael Cocks: ...Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann) stressed the importance of the tourist and holiday industry for the West Country, and I made much the same points on the Committee and Report stages of the Industry Bill. Everybody in the West Country is anxious to see that industry thriving. But there is a heavy price to be paid. As the Government are quite specific in their pledges of more help for...

Ancient Monuments and Historic Buildings (2 Aug 1972)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...warning of some rather recondite questions which I should like to raise and we have gone through a great deal of the ground, perhaps marginally within the order of business on the Field Monuments Bill. First, Durrington Walls, and I quote from a letter of 12th July: I can only express my chagrin that Paul Channon and the Department were misled into thinking—and he and they genuinely...

Industrial Situation (1 Aug 1972)

Mr Gwynoro Jones: ...that I will ever see such loyalty anywhere else in the world. People who were elected on one platform in 1970, pledged to abolish grants, are now eager to implement them through the Industry Bill. If hon. Members can take that sort of thing I am sure that they can take the repeal or amendment of the Industrial Relations Act with equanimity. They need not worry a bit about that. The...

Orders of the Day — Industry Bill: Assistance to Improve Tourist Amenities and Facilities (28 Jul 1972)

Dr David Owen: ...improvement. On the next aspect, at long last the Government are converts to the need for regional incentives and very substantial fiscal help. We have seen a quite remarkable conversion. The Bill is rather too closely aligned to industry. I should prefer to see it much more regional in context. It is regional aid we are discussing. Substantial sums of money are involved in the Bill. We...

Orders of the Day — Industry Bill: Restriction of Grants (28 Jul 1972)

Mr Jo Grimond: I was encouraged by some of the Minister's remarks. I was glad to hear that he attaches importance to the provision of employment and that this will be taken into account in administering the Bill when enacted. I was also glad to hear that he will consider the possibility of so administering the Act as to safeguard the public purse from having to disburse large sums of money to large firms to...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (27 Jul 1972)

Mr Patrick Wolrige-Gordon: ...should like to take issue. I and many people, particularly in Aberdeenshire, were appreciative of the consideration and the length of time given by the House to the Harbours Development (Scotland) Bill. It enable many facts to be clarified and discussed which would not necessarily have been so easy to put forward otherwise. It is undeniable that that Bill is on its way and will be in time...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Bill: Default by Local Authority (26 Jul 1972)

Gavin Strang: ...of the vast majority of the Scottish local authorities, to think again and at least discuss the matter with them. We have got nothing. Yet during that same period the Secretary of State for the Environment made concessions on the Housing Finance Bill dealing with England and Wales, although he could at least claim that the Conservatives are in an elected majority in England. In Scotland,...

Orders of the Day — Harbours Development (Scotland) Bill: Development of Certain Harbours (26 Jul 1972)

Mr Alick Buchanan-Smith: ...regard it as one which it would hope to realise. The question of ownership is important. Occasionally, because of the big issues behind it, one tends to lose sight of the limited nature of the Bill. But of course the limited nature of the Bill does not mean that one can afford to be careless in its drafting and in the powers which we take. My hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeenshire,...
