Orders of the Day — Economic Affairs (30 Nov 1976)

Mr Richard Page: I rise to speak in this debate conscious of the fact that not only is it the first time that I have addressed the House as parliamentary representative for Workington, but that I do so following the elevation to another place of Workington's former Member. My predecessor served that constituency for31 loyal and hard years, and I wish to place on record my appreciation of the work he did for...

Meriden Motor Cycles LTD. (22 Mar 1977)

Mr Richard Page: In view of the time, I shall be very brief. I should like to make one point and to put one question. Before doing so I should declare a degree of personal interest. Apart from my training as an apprentice on the shop floor of a vehicle manufacturer, I was, before my recent incarnation as Member of Parliament for Workington last year, slightly involved through my company in the retail aspect...

Meriden Motor Cycles LTD. (22 Mar 1977)

Mr Richard Page: My hon. Friend makes the point very well. I hope that we shall be having some explanation. That has been asked for in the past. I come to the point about future design and model production, apart from the ECGD question. I hope that the results will be encouraging. I do not want to see this brave experiment fail, particularly after the tremendous individual efforts and sacrifices of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Benefits of Employment (Motor Car Mileage Option) (12 May 1977)

Mr Richard Page: I want to speak very briefly, and, not surprisingly, in favour of the new clause—and not only from the straight taxation point of view. I am sorry that the Labour Benches are depleted, because I should have loved to declare my interest, which comes from a background of many years in the motor industry. The clause goes part of the way towards alleviating the problems that will be created by...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Benefits of Employment (Motor Car Mileage Option) (12 May 1977)

Mr Richard Page: Most commercial travellers do not go to an office first but go straight to work from home. That is what make it possible for them to cover these phenomenal mileages in a year. At weekends they are only too glad to put the car in the garage, and they are most unlikely to do even 25 miles a week if they have any sense.

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: British Leyland (13 Jun 1977)

Mr Richard Page: As the Minister and the NEB have chosen the most expensive new model in cash flow terms but the most profitable in the long term, does he anticipate having to provide more funds in the short term to Leyland, or will he find other ways, with the components industry, of getting the NEB to help?

Clause 5: Proposals to Investigate Prices or Margins (21 Jun 1977)

Mr Richard Page: The operation of Clause 5 and its effects have been more than fully demonstrated by my hon. Friends. Its effects will be disastrous unless we can remedy them to a degree through Amendment No. 34. The amendment provides that no investigation would take place into the margins of a distributor of goods under this clause because of the way in which margins now will exceed margins later. That...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: British Leyland (18 Jul 1977)

Mr Richard Page: Is the Minister satisfied that the purchases of components and machine tools by British Leyland are on the open market and are at arm's length, or are any other purchases being promoted by the NEB?

Orders of the Day — European Community (Regional Development Fund) (18 Jul 1977)

Mr Richard Page: In the couple of minutes at my disposal I should like to make two points. Whatever hon. Members' feelings are towards the Common Market, I think that there must be agreement that the European Regional Development Fund operates and gives tremendous opportunity to overcome a lot of longstanding regional problems. If it can provide aid for our regions and overcome the traditional areas of...

Clause 1: Membership of the Post Office (27 Jul 1977)

Mr Richard Page: One of the advantages of speaking at this time is that many of the arguments have been made. I do not intend to canter over them again. One of my original concerns was that we were obviously starting at the top and working through to the bottom. It reminded me of someone building a house by starting at the roof and filling in the foundations later. I was reassured by the Secretary of State...

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: British Leyland (28 Nov 1977)

Mr Richard Page: asked the Secretary of State for Industry when he next will meet the Chairman of British Leyland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: British Leyland (28 Nov 1977)

Mr Richard Page: I acknowledge my own interest. Will the right hon. Gentleman ensure that the new chairman is fully aware of the vital necessity of having a planned range of models throughout the Leyland range, and, in particular, to work on progress towards a new fleet and a medium-size family saloon? To that end, will the right hon. Gentleman ensure that, if extra finance is needed, adequate parliamentary...

Orders of the Day — Thames Board Mills Limited (29 Nov 1977)

Mr Richard Page: I am pleased that we have this further opportunity to discuss future industrial expansion in Workington. I am delighted that industry in the area is expanding, and coming away from its original twin foundations of coal and steel. It may help the House if I explain why such a vast investment is necessary for what appears to be just a piece of paper. Duplex folding board is a superior-quality...

Orders of the Day — Thames Board Mills Limited (29 Nov 1977)

Mr Richard Page: The hon. Gentleman should try to get his facts right. The workers from Miller's have already contacted me, particularly about closed uppers coming in from Third world countries, and we are discussing with Ministers ways of monitoring these so that they do not get by the agreed levels. Let that be under-stood. I mentioned earlier the increase of 100,000 tons. If this level is maintained,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Non-Milk Fats Products (1 Dec 1977)

Mr Richard Page: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on what grounds he withdrew his opposition to the proposed new Community regulations enabling the manufacture and marketing of products containing non-milk fats to be restricted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Non-Milk Fats Products (1 Dec 1977)

Mr Richard Page: I thank the Minister for his reply. It seemed likely that the Council of Ministers would approve this regulation, and I am pleased to hear the Minister's denial of it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Price Commission (5 Dec 1977)

Mr Richard Page: asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection when he will next meet the Chairman of the Price Commission.

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Price Commission (5 Dec 1977)

Mr Richard Page: In view of the implication in the Department's recent release, will the right hon. Gentleman, when he next meets the chairman, suggest to him the merging of the Price Commission and the Office of Fair Trading? If the right hon. Gentleman has that in mind, can he give us some form of time scale for it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices and Consumer Protection: Prices (International Comparisons) (30 Jan 1978)

Mr Richard Page: asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what was the cumulative increase in prices between February 1974 and the latest date in West Germany, the United States of America, Japan, France and the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prices and Consumer Protection: Prices (International Comparisons) (30 Jan 1978)

Mr Richard Page: Although we welcome the recent drop in price increases, the increases given by the Minister show that the United Kingdom has suffered two to three times the rate of increase of our major competitors, and that is particularly affecting small businesses. Is the hon. Gentleman aware that simply to catch up we must secure half the inflation rate of our major competitors over the next four years?...
