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 (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?

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.

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 — 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...
