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

Mr Peter Mills: I turn from thinking about the large trawlers and fishing fleets in the North and the Hull area to the South-West where I regret to say we have a decreasing number of small fishing boats. It is important in this debate that we should not forget the smaller men. After all, they make up a large proportion of those who fish around our coasts. We must not forget that these men contribute to the...

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...

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 — Transport Finances Bill (18 May 1966)

Mr Peter Walker: ...service against the private service and, when the private service has ceased to make profits and finds it difficult to continue, along will come the Transport Holding Company to buy up the fleets. This is a process which has already been allowed for in the legislation. It is at this point that the unions will agree to accept business from the private haulier provided that the nationalised...

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 Peter Walker: Are we today being asked to vote money which will be used for what the Prime Minister described as "taking the lid off" these transport services by enabling them to buy substantial fleets of lorries at the expense of the private sector of road haulage? We must have a categorical assurance from the Joint Parliamentary Secretary that during the period for which he is asking for...

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

Mr Peter Walker: ...being used today do not meet the required standards of maintenance and road safety. There should, therefore, be every encouragement to ensure that road hauliers maintain modern and up-to-date fleets, not holding on to out-dated vehicles which have been on the road too long. Yet this move by the Government, of course, is a direct discouragement to that. I come now to a very serious...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (13 Jul 1966)

Sir Robert Cary: I would reinforce what has been said so vigorously and eloquently by my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker). He has raised many questions in my mind. I could speak a long time on the relationship which I have known for many years between the industry and the Treasury. It is only in recent years that I have begun to see any relaxation or any gesture to the industry at all....

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 — 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...

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.

"torrey Canyon" (10 Apr 1967)

Mr Peter Bessell: Registered fleet.

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...

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

Mr Hugh Fraser: 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...

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

Mr Peter Walker: ...under-cut by the N.F.O. The N.F.O. will be given powers by the Minister, who has clearly stated that she will encourage the organisation to use these powers to the full, to acquire private haulage fleets. First we shall see under-cutting of private haulage fleets. When they are under-cut and making losses, there will be acquisition on the basis of loss-making companies. This is the most...

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...

Transport Bell (20 Dec 1967)

Mr David Webster: .... I shall probably be accused of being disloyal by pointing out the defects of the Government in trying to put the country right. The point which my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr. Peter Walker) made about the chairmanship of British Railways being hawked around, it is rumoured, seven people, the Parliamentary Secretary's visit to Canada to ask a prominent railwayman there to...

Transport Holding Company Bill (16 Jan 1968)

Mr Peter Walker: ...because of their number, wide range of size and the largely urban nature of their territories. There then follows a table that shows the average working expenses per car mile. It shows that with a fleet of up to 30 buses the expenses are 37d., and for a fleet of between 31 and 60 buses the figure is 39·4d. So the table continues to rise until for 1,000 buses we have a figure of over 46d....

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (24 Jan 1968)

Sir Peter Kirk: the soft area of Europe, the Mediterranean? Again, I hoped to hear more from the Foreign Secretary about what our plans are for the Mediterranean area. Are we to put back troops in Malta and a fleet in the Mediterranean, and are we to react to the presence of the Soviet fleet in the Mediterranean, or will we leave it to the Americans, as we have in other areas? That is what I wanted...

Gibraltar (7 May 1968)

Mr John Tilney: ...workers were prevented by the Spanish Government from taking out any goods. In October, 1966 the cars of tourists were stopped and, although the expenditure of the Russian cargo, tanker and whaling fleets has to some extent helped Gibraltar's economy, it has, of course, suffered more from the action of Spain. Indeed, the Spanish economy itself would have benefited had Spain not taken that...

Clause 2: General Powers of Freight Corporation (27 May 1968)

Mr Peter Bessell: ...would prove a very expensive business indeed. I gather, however, from the right hon. Gentleman's remarks that it is not intended that the Corporation should, under existing conditions, purchase a fleet of hovercraft and commence operating them for freight transportation within the foreseeable future. He believes that the Corporation should have this reserve power so that if an economic...
