Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Chw 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am not suggesting that at all. I am talking about services which are of vital interest to my constituents—the Shetland service to Aberdeen, and the Orkney one to Inverness and to the West.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Chw 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Private enterprise did not fade out. The services in that part of the country were being run at a profit up to the time the war broke out, and during the war they were run by those companies for the Government. They were running profitably the whole of the time, and certainly through the war. There is not the slightest doubt about that, and I am not prepared to give in about it. Here is an...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Chw 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am not talking about the Western Isles at the moment. So far as the air services to Orkney and Shetland were concerned, no subsidy was given whatever. The mails have always been carried on what was considered to be a commercial basis, and I always thought the Post Office made a very hard bargain. I tried to get higher prices and to get them to pay a decent rate over the air routes. That...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Chw 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I have not said one word about that. My point is that the service was running perfectly successfully in the North and West of Scotland before the war, and now there is some danger of its being withdrawn altogether. I have been interrupted so much that I did not finish answering the hon. Member for North Edinburgh. We had this thrice-weekly service round the islands in Orkney running quite...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Films Bill: Clause 5. — (Circuit theatres, etc.) ( 3 Chw 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: The next Amendment in the name of the right hon. Member for Aldershot (Mr. Lyttelton) is not selected, that is to say, in page 4, line 42, at end, insert: Provided that any percentage prescribed under Section two of this Act shall be deemed to include the exhibition of any films required to be exhibited under the provisions of the Subsection. The next Amendment in the name of the hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Animals Bill ( 2 Chw 1948)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am not so much concerned about the wording of the Bill, as about what is in the Bill, and I should like to say a word or two in its favour. As hon. Members know, tuberculosis is the greatest scourge from which the human race suffers, and in so far as this Bill attempts to deal with that disease along one particular line, it is bound to have the support of myself and of every hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (Fisheries) (22 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for having made a gesture in this matter by withdrawing the previous Motion. It is a pity we have such a short time in which to discuss the fishing industry, in view of its great economic importance to Scotland, and the contribution it can make to our food supplies at the present time. On 30th June the Chancellor of the Exchequer made, in this House, a...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (Fisheries) (22 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: The hon. Member is perfectly right, and I am sure I could leave the case of the East Anglian fisheries in his hands.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (Fisheries) (22 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Great as may be the prospect of developing the processing of herring and kippers by quick freezing, we are still faced, for the time being, with the necessity of saltcuring a very large part of the catch. For that purpose, barrels are needed, and, if we are to have barrels, we must have the hoops with which to hold them together. I think that the Government deserve to be roundly condemned for...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (Fisheries) (22 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: The trouble is that when the men shoot their nets at night they do not know there is going to be a glut. It is only in the morning when the nets are laden with herring, and when tens and perhaps hundreds of thousands of pounds are lost by the men, that they know anything about it. They have to deal with it after nature has provided the glut. The two chief reasons why the herring are dumped...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (Fisheries) (22 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: It the hon. Gentleman will wait a moment, I will come to that point. There is, in fact, only one practicable way of dealing with surplus herring, and that is to convert them into herring meal and oil, for which they are worth 16s. a cran at current prices. That is a process which has been woefully neglected in this country up to date. Norway has got 79 factories for making herring meal and...

Orders of the Day — Post Office ( 2 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I am glad that the hon. Member for Hitchin (Mr. Asterley Jones) introduced the topic of rural telephones. I will come back to that subject later. I had not intended to refer to the telegram service, but the remarks of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Petersfield (Sir G. Jeffreys) on that subject reminded me of what I think is a classic example of delay. It happened on a fine summer...

Orders of the Day — Post Office ( 2 Gor 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: What I was trying to say was that in 1936 the air service started, and it was not until 1938 that the Post Office made use of it. It took another 10 years to get the Post Office to distribute this daily air mail throughout the mainland of Shetland every day. That was only undertaken this summer. I think that is an example of how appallingly slow the Post Office is in giving benefits to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Palace of Westminster (Home Guard and Firewatchers' Equipment) (23 Meh 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: asked the Minister of Works whether the equipment provided for use of the Home Guard and firewatchers during the war in the Palace of Westminster has been disposed of, or how much has been retained; and for what purpose.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Apprentices (Maintenance Grants) ( 6 Mai 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that school leavers in rural areas are seriously prejudiced by the fact that no provision has yet been made for maintenance grants to apprentices living away from home and that, as a result, the value of pre-apprenticeship training courses provided by education authorities in rural areas has been seriously detracted from; and whether ho...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land Court Members (Salaries) ( 6 Mai 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will review the salaries paid to the agricultural members of the Scottish Land Court.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land Court Members (Salaries) ( 6 Mai 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that these salaries have not altered since 1911 when they were first fixed, and that they were supposed to correspond roughly with the salaries of top grade Sheriff Substitutes whose salaries have been put up?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Herring Marketing ( 6 Mai 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the last part of this Question is the really urgent one at present, and that unless there are contracts with the Control Commission the herring industry will be knocked endways this summer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fair Isle (Sea Service) ( 6 Mai 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the dates on which goods and mails have been landed at Fair Isle since the s.s. "Good Shepherd" was wrecked.

Orders of the Day — Supply: British Civil Aircraft (24 Ebr 1947)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I Share with the hon. Member for the Western Isles (Mr. M. MacMillan) a certain diffidence in intervening in this Debate when so many hon. Members have spoken with far greater knowledge and experience than either he or I can claim,. but we share this in common, that we have watched the development of air services in our respective Divisions very keenly from the start, and have been constant...
