Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I will endeavour to assist your observation on the matter by respectfully pointing out that my hon. Friend the Member for Caithness and Sutherland (Sir D. Robertson) was allowed to discuss an Amendment and was enabled to put a case for the cinemas in the rural areas. I am merely endeavouring to point out one anomaly which has arisen, and I hope that I shall be able to satisfy you completely...

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

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: With the greatest respect, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I am endeavouring to point out, in connection with a question of relief, that Mr. Speaker did kindly allow not only this new Clause but a new Clause in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Caithness and Sutherland to be taken at the same time. The new Clause to which I refer is entitled: Duty on cinema entertainments

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief Forentertainments.) (3 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am sure the House is indebted to my hon. Friends for proposing this Clause. The Financial Secretary made what I thought were one or two quite legitimate points. He also made the sort of response one gets from Financial Secretaries of all calibres at all times. He stressed previous concessions, but skated rather lightly over some of the anomalies that have arisen. After all, the House of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief Forentertainments.) (3 Jul 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am obliged to my hon. Friend whose statistical mind remains unimpaired. It is, as I said, 640 persons to a square mile. But some astonishing anomalies exist as a consequence. There are two seaside resorts in the West Country—and here, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, if you feel in cinema language that this is where you come in, I apologise; but they do throw a very revealing light on this topic. I am...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Northern Rhodesia (Loan) (29 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Is the right hon. Gentleman also aware that acceptance credits have been encouraged, both by the Bank of England and the Treasury, to finance imports into the Iron Curtain countries, notably Poland and Yugoslavia? Why not our own Empire?

Business of the House (29 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Seeing that the Debate is to be on the activities of the Kitchen Committee, would it not be an occasion for my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Perth and East Perthshire (Colonel Gomme-Duncan) to raise the question of salmon poaching?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Interest on Tax in Arrear by Reason of Exchange Restrictions.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The spectacle on the Treasury Bench of the right hon. and learned Solicitor-General leads us to hope that this new Clause may find favour with His Majesty's Government. It has been our experience so far, in previous stages of the Bill, that when the right hon. and learned Gentleman is in charge an amenable atmosphere immediately prevails, and he generally meets our modest requests. Quite...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Rate of Excise Duty on Private Motor Cars.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am not sure how the observations of the hon. Member for Bolton (Mr. J. Lewis) will be received by the Treasury Bench, but I should like to remind the Financial Secretary what his hon. Friend said in the course of the Debate a year ago: There is the further point, the older the car the more petrol and oil it uses, and it costs more in repairs to maintain and run than does a new one. The...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Rate of Excise Duty on Private Motor Cars.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The hon. Gentleman strengthens the case for this new Clause every time he rises. But we do not wish to rely entirely on his observations made a year ago, relevant as they were then. Although 12 months have passed, the moving finger has written, and hon. Gentlemen can end the quotation. We, who have put our names to this new Clause, have grounds for cautious optimism as to the outcome of our...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Rate of Excise Duty on Private Motor Cars.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: And, of course, progressively that is likely to be the case. Without wishing to be guilty of repetition, I would press the Financial Secretary on this, because there is the strong reason in the form of the windfall which has descended on the Treasury since the introduction of the Budget—a windfall of the order of £20 million or £25 million. We have referred to this matter more than once...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Rate of Excise Duty on Private Motor Cars.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I do not want to interrupt the flow of the hon. Gentleman's argument, but is it not the case that the increased National Assistance scales were announced a full fortnight before the derationing of petrol? They were not budgeted for, therefore, because of the windfall.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Tenth Schedule to the Finance Act, 1948.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: May I ask for your guidance, Sir Charles? Without reflecting on the Chair's power to select admendments, I would respectfully call your attention to the fact that, of five Clauses dealing with post-war credits none has been called. Is there no method by which we can have an opportunity of discussing this question?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Tenth Schedule to the Finance Act, 1948.) (22 Jun 1950)

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Further Provisions as to Profits Tax.) (22 Jun 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." I move this Motion in the absence of the hon. and learned Member for Leicester. North-East (Mr. Donovan), who has. I understand, adequate if not excellent reasons for not being able to be with us at the moment. The Clause is worthy of some discussion, if only for the reason that it is the first new Clause we have reached in the name of...
