Canlyniadau 101–120 o 157 ar gyfer speaker:Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton

Oral Answers to Questions — Science: Government Chemist (Laboratory) (19 Maw 1963)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Does not my hon. Friend consider that this high official could carry out his duties far better in the clean air and open space of the North-East than on the South Bank?

Burnham Committee (Minister's Letter) (21 Chw 1963)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Would my right hon. Friend agree that the total proposed by the Burnham Committee is most unexpectedly large? Will he bear in mind that many of us will support him, despite the views of both sides of the Burnham Committee, in his endeavour to allocate the increases to those who remain in the profession and to try to improve the quality of recruitment?

British Transport Commission (29 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Is my hon. Friend aware that in the example quoted at the moment, both the railway locomotive shops at Darlington and the privately-owned firm of Stephenson & Hawthorne are full of work? Both have very good orders, which they are now fulfilling, because these locomotives are required in a hurry. It is in the future, in 1964 and 1965 that the redundancy will be felt, but, at the moment, both...

British Transport Commission (29 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Mr. Bourne-Arton rose—

British Transport Commission (29 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Would not the hon. Gentleman, in fairness, agree that the total number was known and had been discussed regarding the approximate numbers on two previous occasions, and that it was only the incidence of the break-up in various places which was announced?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Motor Cycle and Scooter Riders (Training) (28 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Is the Minister aware of the intolerable nuisance caused on the very well-known existing circuits on which these people are trained, not so much by the testing but by every Sunday being made hideous by competitors practising? This is a persistent and intolerable nuisance. Does not the existing practice of having well-known circuits on which to test reduce the value of the test?

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: The hon. Member for Loughborough (Mr. Cronin) has claimed that he is closer to these matters than hon. Members on this side of the House. However, he will agree, when he remembers my constituency, that I am not very far distant, and have not been ever since I have been in the House, from railway-matters. I will not pursue the question of this branch line, important though it no doubt is....

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: The hon. Member for Loughborough talked about the total failure of Government policy, and Government policy is modernisation.

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: That is the hon. Member's opinion and he is entitled to it, as I am entitled to mine. Let us be clear what this means. Modernisation means fewer men. That is the object of it. One builds locomotives which last longer and require less maintenance, for what purpose? In order that one may employ fewer men in the railway workshops.

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: I am suggesting that in manufacture and maintenance it requires fewer men and that one of the objects of its introduction is that there should be fewer men employed.

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: The right hon. Gentleman has had the privilege of representing a railway town for far longer than I have, and, of course, I would accept what he says and I am grateful for his instruction, but, with respect, it does not affect the main point. This is something which we must recognise. Are we or are we not, however much we may argue about trying to get the best transport policy for the...

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: No doubt in those countries somebody either uses the railways now or can be persuaded so to do in the future. I should like to quote to the House, and particularly for the benefit of the hon. Member for Loughborough, the case of a railway line which I know very well although it is not in my constituency. There has not been a passenger train on it since 1928. With the exception of the war...

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: I did not tell the right hon. Member concerned, my right hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton), that I would be mentioning this. It is the line that runs through the village in which I live. It is not in my constituency. It runs from Ripon to Masham. It has some stations on it, and one is in my village. There are miles and miles of fencing, culverts and ditches to be...

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: The hon. Gentleman for once astonishes me. I find that very hard to swallow. I can swallow a great deal, but I cannot swallow that the railways—and this is what we are talking about—were by themselves making a profit before 1953. I will grant the hon. Gentleman that there was a great wearing out in war-time, and great arrears of repairs, and so on, but if he or anyone else can really say,...

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: Of course not, but what was being done by way of modernisation? What was being put aside for that?

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: I hope my hon. Friend will forgive me if I do not go to Burton for the same reason as he does, but I have a warm feeling for that place. I am also grateful to hon. Members opposite for assisting in my education. After all these interruptions I have forgotten where I was before we went into a fascinating discussion of the profit and losses of the railways prior to 1953.

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: From my admittedly short experience, though of very close contact, with people working in this industry—much shorter experience than some hon. Members opposite —I would say that the best service which any Government can do is to raise the status of the industry so that the men working in it will have a greater pride in the service they are performing. I do not see any way of that coming...

Orders of the Day — Railways (Burton-Leicester Line) (12 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: I said that they did.

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation ( 5 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: I trust that the hon. Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson) will forgive me if I do not follow his general remarks or in his reference to textiles, much as I would like to have done, having the largest and most modern wool textile mill in the country in my constituency. In view of the lateness of the hour, I only want to make two or three quite constituency points. They will, I think, be...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation ( 5 Tach 1962)

Mr Anthony Bourne-Arton: I am begging him to do it. If the right hon. Member for Easington begs him to do so, I am sure that that will carry great weight. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government has had the good fortune not to be on my mailing list during this period of anxiety, but I give him fair warning that he will be if, in these circumstances, he starts "mucking about" with our water...
