Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (10 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: To me falls the honour of offering the concluding remarks from the Opposition Benches at the end of these long financial debates which have mapped the course of our fortunes from now until April, 1951. It is not unnatural that although today the atmosphere has been amiable throughout, hon. Members should have touched upon a very large number of topics. After all, much can happen between now...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (10 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The hon. Gentleman, with his past experience, always seems to me to be putting the case of the tax gatherer rather than that of those who have to find the fruits of the labours of those in the Inland Revenue Department. Later, I shall be returning to the hon. Member on one point in which he joined issue with those of us on these Benches. In view of the fact that nearly three months have...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (10 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Of course, anything I can do to soothe the conscience of the hon. Member for Chesterfield I am only too glad to do, but perhaps he will convey his views about foolishness to the two noble Lords in person. I shall certainly not do so. Surely if there was a case for that statement in 1939—

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (10 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: If there was a case for that statement in 1939 how much more is there a case today, when the National Debt has risen to this huge figure and when Income Tax, which is a very good yardstick, stands not at 5s.—which was the complaint at that time—but at 9s. in the £. I do not wish to detain the House much longer and I shall, therefore, pass from that point. Our complaint is that His...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Hydrocarbon Oils (Excise).) (4 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I wish to add my plea to those that have been made to the Financial Secretary. When we reach the last lap of the Report stage of a Finance Bill we find that the Government are increasingly reluctant to make these minor alterations. We were told only a few moments ago that the reason the Government could not take a certain course was because a certain committee had not reported, but when a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Duty Free Importations for Industrial Research.) (4 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: There is one point in connection with this about which I should be grateful to have an explanation. The Financial Secretary can speak again only by leave of the House. However, I think it is a point that can be referred to the Solicitor-General. The Financial Secretary has explained in the most painstaking fashion the discretion which the Customs hold in this matter. The point I want to ask...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 17. — (Extension of Purchase Tax Exemption for War Memorials.) (4 Jul 1950)

It was obvious that hon. Members...

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Upon the Report stage of a Finance Bill we generally find ourselves in a situation in which a number of half loaves pass across the table as being preferable to no bread. As the right hon. and learned Gentleman said, quite properly, a few minutes ago, he came part of the way to meet us and as far as practicable. I hope this matter will be considered again before another Budget is presented,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Reduction of Full Rates of Entertainments Duty) (3 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: My right hon. Friend the noble Lord, the Member for Horsham (Earl Winterton) and other hon. Members have covered a very wide area in their plea for a more generous concession in this matter. I only rise to put a very narrow point, and to submit to the President of the Board of Trade an anomaly to which I think he may well have had his attention called. It is somewhat ironical that this...
