Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: South-West (Economic Development) (3 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Will the right hon. Gentleman draw the attention of the South-West office at Bristol to the necessity for improving the carriage of freight by air in the South-West? Will he see whether it can give assistance in that respect?

Committee on Social Studies (Report) (2 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, whether he intended to or not, he gave the impression to the House that he did not think that there was much chance of getting the £150,000 out of the Treasury? We on this side know that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has his limitations, but will the right hon. Gentleman, when discussing with the Treasury the sum of money to which my right hon....

Orders of the Day — Schedule 9. — (Capital Gains: Administration.) (31 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: When one listens to the sort of speech to which we have just had to listen one is not surprised that the Bill is so difficult to understand. The hon. and learned Gentleman tried to ride our criticism off by saying that there were only about 2,000 cases a year of £1,000 or more where chattels were concerned. Does he not know what the First Secretary is doing? The First Secretary has so lost...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 9. — (Capital Gains: Administration.) (31 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: With great respect, Dr. King, the point that I am about to make about the valuation of chattels is entirely relevant. The First Secretary and the Chancellor have so lost control of the wages front that there will not be 2,000 cases a year; before long there will be millions, because the £ will be worthless and every one of the chattels will then have to be valued. I turn to paragraph 13,...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 9. — (Capital Gains: Administration.) (31 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Now I come to the second paragraph—and I hope that I shall have the attention of the Financial Secretary. Indeed, I thought that we might have had the First Secretary here to explain how all this will be related to his wages policy. The second paragraph of subsection 13 states that If any person wilfully delays or obstructs an inspector or other officer of the Board … he shall be guilty...

Orders of the Day — Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill: New Clause. — (Duration.) (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order. The point of my rising, Dr. King, is to ask whether you would be prepared to accept a Motion to report Progress and ask leave to sit again. My reason is that since 10.30 yesterday morning 200 Members—I believe a number in excess of that figure—have been in the House of Commons on Standing Committees upstairs and since 2.30 yesterday afternoon the whole House was here...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Enactments Repealed.) (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Dr. King. Are we not to talk about Clause 2?

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Enactments Repealed.) (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I am sorry Dr. King. I am so tired.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: House Building (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there is no likelihood of an increase in the number of privately-owned houses until the Government get down to running their financial policies properly so that people can get mortgages?

Sittings of the House (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I draw your attention to a subject that I raised this morning during discussion of the Committee stage of the Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill? I think that the point is relevant now, since the Leader of the House is here; indeed, we had the Prime Minister here as well—and I suppose that he carries some responsibility inasmuch as the Leader of...

Sittings of the House (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I accept your advice, Mr. Speaker, and will reserve my criticism for another time. As a result of hon. Members being so exhausted this morning, especially on the Government side, we did not at first have a quorum to proceed with our business. I suggest to the Leader of the House that, since he is grossly overworking the House—

Sittings of the House (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: What I would ask you, Mr. Speaker, is whether we on this side of the House have any redress against the strain that is being put upon the House—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: National Assistance (Immigrants) (24 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Does the hon. Gentleman realise that if he replied to the Question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Mr. Gurden) the people of this country would be gravely shocked to hear of the burden they are carrying regarding immigrants coming in and immediately seeking National Assistance?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (24 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Dr. King. There is some confusion on these benches as to whether the hon. and learned Gentleman is reading from HANSARD or is giving an account of what he thought was in HANSARD. From time to time he starts to quote—I have a copy of the relevant HANSARD with me—and then he interpolates various remarks of his own. If he wants to draw the attention of the House to a...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (24 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Not gallant.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (24 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: rose—

Orders of the Day — Clause 13. — (Withdrawal of Initial Allowances for Cars.) (20 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I hope that I shall not be interrupted too much, otherwise I may have to address the Committee for rather a long time. It is not my intention to intervene for more than a very short time, but I wish to refer to Amendment No. 38, which we are discussing with Amendment No. 302, because for some time I was the president of the commercial travellers' association of Exeter. Therefore, I have a...

Orders of the Day — Clause 13. — (Withdrawal of Initial Allowances for Cars.) (20 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I will come to the farmers later in my speech. I was intending to leave the Committee shortly, but I was not fortunate enough to persuade an hon. Member on the Government side to come with me. I wish to speak on behalf of this sorely pressed section of our society, the commercial travellers. It seems to me that without any doubt, anyone who uses a vehicle in the course of their ordinary...
