Transport (6 Nov 1967)

Mr Peter Walker: ...policies are hindering progress. In aviation one finds that B.E.A.'s future is in jeopardy as a result of the constant delay and indecision of the Government on replacing the present B.E.A. fleet. If one considers future developments in aviation, internal air services, the development of freight air services, and the indecision, and probably wrong decision, on matters such as Stansted, one...

Bus Operators, Road Hauliers and Ports and Docks Industries (Nationalisation) (18 Jul 1967)

Sir Robert Cary: ...I think the right hon. Lady once described it as the primitive method—and she is seeking other means by which she can come to the same end, which is the outright public ownership of the transport fleets of the country. My hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker), in the clear analysis he made when opening the debate, put his finger on many aspects of the right hon. Lady's...

Orders of the Day — Oceanographic Programme (31 May 1967)

Mr Hugh Fraser: ...jobs. I myself believe that it should be undertaken by someone who has had a major connection with the naval forces of this country. I can think of many names. I can think of Admiral of the Fleet Earl Mountbatten. I can think of other names, too. I can think of other names, like Admiral Sir Peter Gretton, both a brilliant sailor, and now Bursar of University College. I can think of Admiral...

Fishing Vessel Grants Bill (3 May 1967)

Mr Peter Mills: ...the South-West, in the Torbay area and in Brixham which is probably one of the most successful schemes ever put forward and developed in the South-West. From a rather broken and run-down fishing fleet manned by dispirited men, there has been a change to one of the most flourishing fleets in the South-West and great credit is due to all who promoted that transformation. I hope that this...

"torrey Canyon" (10 Apr 1967)

Mr Peter Bessell: Registered fleet.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Polaris Submarines (1 Mar 1967)

Mr Peter Blaker: asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made in the construction of the Polaris submarine fleet for the Royal Navy.

Orders of the Day — Transport Policy (22 Feb 1967)

Mr Richard Buchanan: The hon. Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker) had some fun with the White Paper. He praised the right hon. Member for Wallasey (Mr. Marples) for the modernisation programme. I speak as a practical railwayman. Many of us cast some doubts on the sense behind the rush into dieselisation which must have cost the country many millions of £s, though many diesels are lying about awaiting...

Prayers: B.E.a. (Aircraft Purchases) (16 Dec 1966)

Mr Peter Hordern: ...grounds to buy American aircraft. The Government, however, have informed B.E.A. that they will take steps to ensure that B.E.A. is able to operate as a fully commercial undertaking with the fleet it acquires."—[OFFICIAL REPORT, 2nd August, 1966; Vol. 733, c. 261.] We regard that as the pledge that the Minister made. When is the right hon. Gentleman going to make an announcement about the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 33. — (Abolition of Investment Allowances and Amendments as to Initial Allowances.) (22 Jun 1966)

Sir Robert Cary: I intervene to reinforce what has just been said so eloquently and vigorously by my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker). As will be well known, I am the chairman of a very large transport operating company in the north of England, with 500 or 600 buses and coaches. The replacement of the fleet is almost a monthly preoccupation with me. A considerable capital investment has...

Orders of the Day — Transport Finances Bill: Clause 1. — (FINANCES OF RAILWAYS BOARD, WATERWAYS BOARD AND LONDON BOARD, 1962 c. 46.) (20 May 1966)

Mr David Webster: .... We are interested in the movement towards decimal currency because it is a germane fact if we are to protect the revenue which London Transport is earning but not getting. There is also the Fleet line and the other new one. When are we likely to get a decision on these? We are told that it is urgent to have decisions on finance, but we get no decisions on other things. There has been no...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1965)

Sir Peter Kirk: ...way of life by the use of the nuclear deterrent—and I am sure that that is right—extending over the European area a nuclear guarantee based on the American Strategic Air Force and the Polaris fleet. What we have not overlooked but done absolutely nothing about in alliance terms is the fact that the threat with which we are faced now seems to lie outside Europe and while we have three...

Orders of the Day — Roads (3 Aug 1965)

Mr Peter Doig: ..., buses must travel through cities at between 9 m.p.h. and 10 m.p.h. when they could easily travel at twice that speed. We can see why higher fares are constantly being sought. Companies running fleets of vans find that they need twice the number of vans to do their deliveries because their vehicles can travel at only about 10 m.p.h. through cities. I have some experience of this. I was...

Fishing Industry (Subsidies and Grants) (30 Jul 1965)

Mr James Scott-Hopkins: ...from the markets to the consumers. This is all tied up with the new policies and outlooks which are so important if the industry is to make progress. My hon. Friend the Member for Torrington (Mr. Peter Mills) spoke about the setting up of co-operatives to market fish. I wrote to the right hon. Gentleman about this recently, and had a very courteous reply—he seems better on paper than...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1965–66: Foreign Affairs (20 Jul 1965)

Mr Peter Blaker: ...not the point. The point is that, if the Americans withdrew, or if they were defeated, the rest of South-East Asia would say to themselves something like this, "We thought that the American Seventh Fleet and their tremendous resources were going to prevent South Vietnam going Communist. It has not worked, America is revealed as a paper tiger." Therefore, they would start reinsuring, as...

Railways (Meldon Quarry) (25 May 1965)

Mr Ernest Popplewell: .... I hope that the Joint Parliamentary Secretary will initiate a thorough investigation into all these matters, particularly this point. The Board informed the hon. Member for Torrington (Mr. Peter Mills)—who hopes to speak in this debate if he gets an opportunity to do so—that the railway unions had completely surrendered their claim in view of the financial figures which had been put...

Orders of the Day — Roads (Ombersley by-Pass) (4 Mar 1965)

Mr Peter Walker: ...the appalling traffic conditions that will result in the village. Added to this, in the middle of the village there is a roundabout at the crossroads between the road coming from Droitwich to Holt Fleet and the A.449 itself. The road from Droitwich to Holt Fleet is carrying an increasing density of traffic, primarily due to the fact that this is the first bridge across the river above the...

Bill Presented: White Fish Subsidy (3 Mar 1965)

Mr James Hoy: ...representatives of the industry, to discourage some of the older and obsolete vessels from continuing to fish beyond their economic capacity. As a result, there are now no coal burners left in the fleet and only a few oil burners outside the distant water fleet. That is why these changes have taken place. The special subsidies for the period to 31st January last covered a few oil burners...

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (17 Dec 1964)

Mr Denis Healey: ...because it meant missing four excellent maiden speeches from the hon. Members for Westbury (Mr. Walters), Brighouse and Spenborough (Mr. Jackson), Dorking (Sir G. Sinclair) and Preston, South (Mr. Peter Mahon). I think that the concrete and pragmatic tone of their speeches contrasted favourably with the theological approach of the Leader of the Opposition. It was very primitive theology at...

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (17 Dec 1964)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: ...to everything that every post-war German Government has striven for. What we are entitled, however, to ask the Prime Minister is this: what is his proposal on the M.L.F., the mixed-manned surface fleet? He is the Prime Minister of this country. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] It is right to cheer a Prime Minister, but it is also right to ask him to stand at that Box and give a straight...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Mixed-Manned Multilateral Force (15 Jul 1964)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: No such estimate is at present possible. It has not yet been decided whether or not a mixed-manned nuclear fleet should be created or, if sc, what size it might be. In any case, Britain remains wholly uncommitted to joining a multilateral force. The estimated capital and recurrent cost would, of course, be important factors of which full account would be taken by the Government in deciding...
