Railways Reorganisation Scheme (23 Nov 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The hon. Member is on a point of great importance. Would he tell the House what, in the opinion of hon. Members opposite, the scale of remuneration should be, if we are to attract the best men to these boards?

Railways Reorganisation Scheme (23 Nov 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: This is an important point. The hon. Member has been urging the appointment of railwaymen to these boards. In his opinion, what remuneration should they receive?

Highway Code (8 Nov 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: My night hon. Friend reminded the House in his introductory remarks today that for about two years I lived with this problem. During that time I had the honour of being the Chairman of the Departmental Committee on Road Safety. Hon. Members may be interested to know the method by which that body worked in order to achieve the results we have before us this afternoon. Anyone studying the...

Highway Code (8 Nov 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: If people would look, they would find the necessary exhortation on the back of their dog licences.

Road Finance (30 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: When you were good enough, Mr. Speaker, to allocate an hour of today's Sitting to the topic of road finance. I immediately got in touch with the Financial Secretary to the Treasury by letter, giving him an indication of the line which I propose to pursue and intimating that I should be grateful for his attendance. My right hon. Friend told me orally that he did not think it was a matter...

Road Finance (30 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I was just going to say that I am comforted by my recollection of the story of Cinderella, for it ended happily. I am hoping that this may be the case too, because British credit has vastly improved under the wise administration of my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer. It is no good making this improvement in British credit if we do not use it. It is there. Let us make use of...

Road Finance (30 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I have listened with very great care to the arguments which my hon. Friend has been deploying. Are we to understand that this Conservative Government, having surveyed the whole field of the savings of the people, have come to the conclusion that £900 million of them can be gobbled up in five years by the nationalised industries while the roads, which cater for all industries, are to be left...

Road Finance (30 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Then the nationalised industries are to get the lot.

Road Finance (30 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: In the meantime, £900 million goes to industry.

Road Finance (30 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: My hon. Friend has made a provocative remark. Is he really asking the House to envisage that over the 30-year period of this loan the armaments programme will continue at its present momentum? We are looking ahead over a 30-year period; he is arguing for a period of six or 12 months.

Orders of the Day — Gas and Electricity (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I beg to move, to leave out from "That" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: this House, while approving liberal provision of capital for the development of the country's industrial assets, declines to give a Second Reading to a Bill which gives further borrowing powers to electricity and gas undertakings while restrictions continue on the development of many other projects...

Orders of the Day — Gas and Electricity (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: As the right hon. Gentleman has told us that before, I hope he will not find himself in too serious disagreement with what I was going to say on the question of capital investment policy, which is the corollary of economic planning, and must be so. Hon. Members who have enjoyed Charles Dickens' masterpiece "David Copperfield" may remember a female character, a Miss Rosa Dartle, who was in...

Orders of the Day — Gas and Electricity (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Yes, indeed. I am obliged to the hon. Member, although that in itself might not be a reason for the attendance of a Treasury Minister. What, I believe, is important is that a representative of the Treasury should listen to this debate unfolding and to the concern, which exists on both sides of the House, for the development not only of gas and electricity, important as they are, but of the...

Orders of the Day — Gas and Electricity (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I had hoped that the hon. Member, with his temperate habits, would not have thrown an interjection into this pleasant atmosphere this morning. The effects of tea and cocoa are nearly always disruptive. We shall not be wasting our time if the representatives of Her Majesty's Government take this opportunity of enlightening us as to their intentions in this vital field of capital investment.

Orders of the Day — Gas and Electricity (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: It was, of course, because the Amendment on the Order Paper was bound to raise certain matters which are extraneous to his Departmental duties that we pleaded for the attendance of a representative of the Treasury. It is always better to hear the spoken word than to read HANSARD.

Orders of the Day — Gas and Electricity (Borrowing Powers) Bill (9 Jul 1954)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Exactly the same as the road loan.

Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: It is some years since I had the honour of addressing this House and I do so today with some feeling of trepidation. Our country is in the greatest possible danger. Our financial affairs are moving swiftly in the wrong direction and I can well understand the Chancellor making the statement which he did this afternoon. I am not sure that our affairs and our relations in industry with the...

Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I agree with what the hon. Member for Ince (Mr. T. Brown) says, but he will agree that under this island there is coal in abundance and that it is our greatest asset. Unless we get it out, sell it and use it as an exportable commodity this country has no chance of being successful in the world's industrial affairs. It has got to be done and it is not a question of whether we have enough men...

Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I have done it.

Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I know all about the hon. Member's constituency and about the coalfield in Lanark which is worked out. There are things that must be done. The first things have to be tackled first, and this is one of the prime things that we have to do to put this country right. Whether it is done under nationalisation or under some other method, it has to be done for the future security of Great Britain,...
