Canlyniadau 161–180 o 221 ar gyfer speaker:Mr George Porter

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: Clause 3. — (Abolition of power to pass a sentence of whipping.) (15 Gor 1948)

Mr George Porter: I thought the hon. and gallant Member was talking about the Scottish prisons.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: First Schedule. — (Parliamentary Constituencies.) (15 Meh 1948)

Mr George Porter: I beg to second the Amendment to the proposed Amendment. I wish to emphasise that East-Central is a contradiction in terms. I do not know how one arrives at East Central. It must be either east of the centre or it is the centre. In view of the fact that the people I represent are definite in their desire for their constituency still to be called Leeds Central and object to anyone else using...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: New Clause. — (Superannuation rights of contributory employees in England and Wales.) (14 Meh 1948)

Mr George Porter: I beg to move as an Amendment to the proposed Clause, in line 2, after "parliamentary," to insert "or local government." In moving this Amendment I am sanguine and very hopeful that it is one that will meet with complete agreement on both sides of the House. We have had a long discussion on the pros and cons of the new Clause, but the Amendment has the same reference and the same intention...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: New Clause. — (Superannuation rights of contributory employees in England and Wales.) (14 Meh 1948)

Mr George Porter: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment, purely on the grounds that the Home Secretary has given an assurance that he has made every investigation into the possibility of this proposal, and that it would be ridiculous in those circumstances to force it upon him.

New Clause. — (Acceptance of property by the trustees.) (10 Mai 1948)

Mr George Porter: I hope this Clause will be accepted. The Fund is the responsibility of all Members of this House. The purpose is to give certain payments to ex-Members who happen to fall on hard times. Surely if we are shouldering that responsibility in an equitable manner and paying the same contribution while we are Members, and the Member who finds himself at the other end of scale when he retires wants...

Consumer Goods (Coupon Value Changes) ( 6 Mai 1948)

Mr George Porter: Would the right hon. Gentleman consider, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the possibility of taking mattresses out of the category of bedding and putting them either into the category of furniture or into a separate category, so that they would have better consideration from the point of view of Purchase Tax?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Clothing Stocks (29 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the reference made in the Question to other goods includes waterproofed and rubberised goods, and that because of the accumulation in the shops of these goods there is considerable unemployment in the industry?

Colonial Furniture (Importation) (27 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: I have taken advantage of the kindness of the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling) in passing round these photographs, and have looked at them. As one who has some knowledge of the subject, I say that I see very little difference in the construction or appearance of the West African furniture photographed and the utility furniture we are now producing in this country.

Colonial Furniture (Importation) (27 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: That is obvious, because they are made of solid wood—African mahogany. I am talking of the appearance of the furniture and the methods of construction, which seem to be entirely the same as those of utility furniture. The hon. Member, in handing around these photographs, handed out another photograph which shows the type of person concerned in making this African furniture. My hon. Friend...

Colonial Furniture (Importation) (27 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: There is no possibility of developing the argument to prove I am wrong. Would the hon. Member ask why we have to import groundnuts if it were possible immediately to make margarine there and bring it to this country instead of the nuts?

Business of the House (22 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: On a point of Order, may I put a question to you, Mr. Speaker? In view of the fact that you have ruled that this is not a question for the Committee of Privileges, will you explain to what purpose a Resolution in regard to it could be discussed in this House?

Business of the House (22 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: Further to that point of Order. In view of the refusal to appoint a Select Committee, can a Motion with regard to it be put down? What type of Motion could be discussed, and to what purpose?

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 44. — (Penalty for illegal canvassing by police officers.) (21 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: The Clause says: No member of a police force… That surely presumes more than one police force, or the words would be "the police force"?

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 21. — (Electors.) (20 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: I want to compliment the Home Secretary on his agreement to introduce an Amendment to the Clause which will make it impossible for what has happened even this month in the area in which I reside to happen again. Not only has an individual been entitled to a vote, but he has stood as a candidate for local government, and his only connection with the area is that he pays 7s. 6d. per year for an...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 40. — (Prohibition of expenses not authorised by election agent.) (20 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: Before the Home Secretary leaves that point might I say that he mentioned 10s. Surely if it costs only one shilling it could be regarded as concerted action.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause. — (Payment of costs of defence on acquittal, etc.) (15 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: Can the right hon. Gentleman say that this Clause will in no way alter the rights of the person who is charged to take action in a civil court?

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause. — (Suspension of death penalty.) (14 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: In entering into this discussion for a few moments, I feel like the man who, at an Evangelical meeting, has been given an opportunity of speaking from the body of the hall; because, while I am not for one moment desirous of giving the same expression of opinion as that coming from the platform, I am still very proud at being allowed to make my contribution. I, like the man at that Evangelical...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Ebr 1948)

Mr George Porter: Before the hon. and gallant Gentleman leaves the quality question may I ask a question. A moment ago he said that private enterprise was responsible for our exports. Now he is telling us that the quality is in question. Is private enterprise also responsible for the quality?

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill (24 Maw 1948)

Mr George Porter: I would like to ask a question whilst the hon. Gentleman is dealing with the Speaker's Conference. Is it not a fact that any recommendations of that Conference would be agreed recommendations, and that the only things binding would be those recommendations which were supported by the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: War Cemeteries, Germany (Relatives' Visits) (16 Maw 1948)

Mr George Porter: Is it not a fact that graves cannot be visited until they are handed over to the War Graves Commission?
