Orders of the Day — Low Income Families (15 Feb 1971)

Mr Paul Bryan: .... The Child Poverty Action Group calculations start from a statement by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services during the Second Reading on the Family Income Supplements Bill that it would help between one-half and one-third of working families below the supplementary benefit level. However, as was made clear by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State to the...

Orders of the Day — Employed Persons (Safety) Bill (12 Feb 1971)

Mr Ernle Money: ...that that is too many accidents, and I say that acknowledging the considerable care taken by both sectors of industry in Ipswich. For that reason, unlike some of my hon. Friends, I welcome the Bill wholeheartedly. I also welcome it because I feel that any provisions that cut into the formalism of so much of our present legislation on factory accidents must be good if it has the effect of...

Clause 57: Trade Unions and Other Organisations of Workers (10 Feb 1971)

Mr Charles Pannell: The Clause to which the hon. Gentleman referred is rendered completely nugatory by the register. It does not matter how it is achieved. We have only to look at what is lost through the Bill. The Trade Union Act, 1871 states: The advantages which a registered trade union has over an unregistered one are as follows. I am reading here from a real authority, Citrine, who, after all, proved that...

Orders of the Day — Rating Bill (8 Feb 1971)

Mr Alick Buchanan-Smith: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The Bill can be said to have its origins just over 40 years ago when Parliament enacted the Rating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act, 1928. In that Act, an agricultural building was defined as one which is occupied together with agricultural land and used solely in connection with agricultural operations on the land. This definition...

STANDING ORDER No. 80 (ESTIMATES COMMITTEE): Road Transport (Industrial Training Levy) (21 Jan 1971)

...industry towards training is demonstrated by the way in which it has put under the carpet the proposals of the last Government for a transport manager's licence. Even the Secretary of State for the Environment in Committee on the Transport Bill supported quality licensing, which involves better training facilities for management. The attitude of the road haulage industry has been...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill (19 Jan 1971)

Mr John Fraser: .... There is the view of the Government, on the one hand, that the undoubted problems of industrial strife can be dealt with by regulation, penalty and damages and by some of the provisions of the Bill which go back to before 1906. Alternatively, there is the view, expressed in the Amendment, that it is possible to harness constructively the vigour and the involvement of workers'...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: General Principles (18 Jan 1971)

Mr Kevin McNamara: Neither I nor anybody in the trade union movement has ever argued in favour of irresponsible negotiation. Our argument is that the word "responsibly" in the context of the Bill is an insult to both sides of industry—the trade unions and the responsible employers. If it were suggested that they were behaving irresponsibly, both sides would be quick to deny it. Hon. Members opposite made a...

Orders of the Day — Schedule: WATER RESOURCES BILL [Lords] (15 Jan 1971)

Mr Graham Page: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. This is a Bill which seeks to do something that I am sure Parliament intended to do and thought it had done in 1963. By the Water Resources Act, 1963, Parliament created, in Section 3(1), the river authorities and it transferred to those authorities the functions relating to land drainage, fisheries, river pollution and similar...

Orders of the Day — COURTS BILL [Lords] (14 Jan 1971)

Mr Peter Rawlinson: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. Nine months ago, in May last year, at the urging of my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Huntingdonshire (Sir D. Renton), the previous Parliament debated the Report of the Royal Commission on Assizes and Quarter Sessions which had sat under the chairmanship of Lord Beeching. The Royal Commission had been set up in 1966, and...

Orders of the Day — ARMED FORCES BILL [Lords] (13 Jan 1971)

Lord Balniel: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The House will know that the Bill was first introduced and taken through its various stages in another place. Members will probably recall that some doubts were expressed as to whether this course of action was constitutionally correct. I think that the very full explanation given by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House allayed...

Orders of the Day — Oil in Navigable Waters Bill: Provision of Security as Condition of Registration (13 Jan 1971)

Mr Albert Booth: ...any fine or damages awarded in civil proceedings arising from a discharge of oil in navigable waters which constitutes an offence under the 1955 Act, the 1963 Act or this Measure. As, under the Bill, Britain is to be responsible for all offences committed by U.K. registered ships outside our territorial waters as well as for offences committed by the discharge of oil within them, I trust...

Orders of the Day — Oil in Navigable Waters Bill (13 Jan 1971)

Mr Laurance Reed: ...by a desire to proclaim a vested interest in this matter. This interest is not peculiar to me, nor to those I represent here because it is the vested interest we all have in the well-being of the environment which sustains us. The oceans, after all, cover 70 per cent. of the earth's surface and they are critical to maintaining the world's environment, contributing to the oxygen-carbon...

Mersey Docks and Harbour Board (18 Dec 1970)

Mr Edmund Dell: ...of order. I know that I must not refer in an Adjournment debate to matters which entail legislation. Specifically, I must not refer to the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board (Capital Reconstruction) Bill, which is currently before the House. Nevertheless, I am sure that I cannot be blamed if the existence of that Bill is in the minds of hon. Members—it is not something I can prevent—and...

Severn Estuary (Pollution) (18 Dec 1970)

Mr Eldon Griffiths: ...on the subject of aircraft noise and the activities of the British Steel Corporation. I am answering the debate on behalf of two of my right hon. Friends, namely, the Secretary of State for the Environment and the Secretary of State for Wales. Our two Departments work closely together in guarding against all forms of pollution. This policy cannot be pursued on a regional or national basis...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission (Dissolution) Bill (16 Dec 1970)

Mr Graham Page: ...of unacceptable tax which was imposed by the Land Commission Act 1967. On 22nd July of this year, only five weeks after the General Election, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment informed the House of the Government's intention to bring in the Bill and to make all property transactions after 22nd July of this year free from betterment levy. My right hon. Friend...

LOCAL AUTHORITIES (QUALIFI- CATION OF MEMBERS) BILL (changed from LOCAL GOVERN- MENT (QUALIFICATION OF COUNCILLORS) BILL): Alternative Qualifications for Nomination and Election to, and Membership of, Local Authorities (15 Dec 1970)

Mr Mark Carlisle: ...detail in Committee on their merits. I said then, and I must repeat now, that it is the Government's view that, important and wide-ranging as these questions of disqualification are, the present Bill is not the right vehicle for that broader debate or for the proposed change. We cannot attempt to make amendments piecemeal in relation to the difficult problems of disqualification for...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill (14 Dec 1970)

Mr Robert Carr: I want to draw to a conclusion. It really is impossible to expound shortly a Bill of this nature. I know that, despite the length of my speech, there are many points with which I have not been able to deal, though I think I have tackled the most important ones, and in a two-day debate I trust there will be time for those I have not dealt with to be raised, and replied to by my hon. and right...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Accidents and Disease (11 Dec 1970)

Mr Dudley Smith: ...of effective statutory regulations for those meeting particular problems in industry is of great value in the vital—I use that word advisedly—task of creating a safe and healthy working environment. The second main way in which my Department is continuing to tackle this problem is through the work of the Factory Inspectorate. This skilled body of men and women, through the detailed...

Hare Coursing (Abolition) (8 Dec 1970)

Mr Kevin McNamara: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make hare coursing matches illegal. I very much regret having to bring in this Bill because I had hoped that it would be a Government Measure, but following the curt and peremptory reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Ardwick (Mr. Kaufman) on 29th October to the effect that the Government would not be introducing...

Orders of the Day — Highways Bill (8 Dec 1970)

Mr Angus Maude: ...of happy unanimity which prevailed between the two Front Benches at the opening of these proceedings, because I should have felt brusquer at having to do it myself. I recognise that some of the Bill contains much useful tidying up and modernising procedure. For that reason, I shall restrain myself from seeking to divide the House against the Bill tonight, though I regard much of the Bill...
