Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: That is not practical. We must get the machines and the men to work, and we must get the railways to take the coal away. That is what really matters.

Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: To get them to the mining industry I would make mining wages as high as in any industry in the country. Mining is a skilled job. It is becoming more and more mechanised. People talk of it as a dirty job, but it is not. It is as highly skilled as that of any operative working at a bench if it is properly run. We have to encourage the young people to go into the pits more than we have done in...

Financial and Economic Situation (26 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: About a month but every minute's delay in the re-armament programme is of importance. We have to get this job done and, if there is any diplomatic obstacle in the way, let it be cleared at the top level. There may be other things that are being affected in the same way. The Chancellor can do a great deal on his trip to Washington by keeping this country in the closest possible accord with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Staggered Holidays (5 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Is it not the case that no real progress is likely to be made in this matter until the apparently insoluble problem of staggering school holidays is settled?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Meals (5 Jul 1951)

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (3 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: On a point of order. Will subsequent speakers be allowed to pursue this line of thought? There is nothing about it in the Bill.

Finance Bill. (3 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: It is a signal privilege for a back bencher to utter the final words on behalf of his party at the conclusion of the financial discussions of the year, and particularly at the end of the long pilgrimage upon which hon. Members have been occupied both by day and night since 10th April. I may be old-fashioned, but I have always regarded the Finance Bill as the most important Measure of any...

Finance Bill. (3 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: That, if I may say so, makes the hon. Gentleman's offence even greater than I though. How frustrated would have been the common man referred to by the hon. Member for Sowerby who, when he reads it, will be offended by being so described, because none of us regard ourselves as being common men. How frustrated will the common man feel when he reads what the Financial Secretary said this...

Finance Bill. (3 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I hear an echo of a voice which has been too long silent, the financial adviser to His Majesty's Government. I was going on to say that when 8s. in the £ in every wage and salary is confiscated there is a harsh master and that the cost of living continues to rise with the printing press in hot pursuit. After all, the paper £ is no more expensive to produce than the American dollar, but...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 16. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.) (2 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The Financial Secretary was good enough to refer to me, so may I say a few words? I do not think that the House can complain if we spend a little time on this very human problem, coming, as it does, after a concession to the cinema industry and other Amendments dealing with industrial matters and involving large amounts. The hon. Gentleman rested his case on the fact that wider concessions...

Orders of the Day — Sixth Schedule. — (Transitional Provisions in Connection with Increase in Rate of Profits Tax.) (2 Jul 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I beg to second the Amendment so admirably moved by my hon. Friend.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Relief for Wives Drawing Retirement Pensions.) (28 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: It is a truism that life is full of surprises, some pleasant and some otherwise, and the appearance of this new Clause on the Order Paper today has given satisfaction to all of us. I am not quite sure what is the procedural position if the Clause is read a Second time in the form in which it now appears. The Financial Secretary told us that there has been something in the nature of a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Allowance for Removal Expenses.) (28 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am afraid it is becoming apparent that the Economic Secretary is today appearing in the role of the refuser of all requests. Of course, it is always diverting to see a Socialist resting himself confidently upon precedents of the bad old days, but I suggest to the Economic Secretary that, quite apart from any ideological arguments, there has been a considerable change in the circumstances in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Allowance for Removal Expenses.) (28 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: That is not an unfair interruption, but when, in the Finance Bill, one is discussing Income Tax allowances—then one is discussing Income Tax allowances. That is where we are at the moment, and Mr. Deputy-Speaker would rule me out of order if I went on to deal with other matters. There are other ways of compensating people who do not come within the Income Tax provisions.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Allowance for Removal Expenses.) (28 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The new Clause deals with Income Tax allowances, and we are trying to deal with that subject. The decision as to the rightness of the claim must rest with the officials at the Economic Secretary's disposal, and I am sure that if this House laid down the principle, it could be worked out in detail. The Economic Secretary said he did not think the time had come to make this alteration of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Tax Due on Profits Unremittable by Reason of Exchange Restrictions.) (28 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I thought that the Chancellor's reply was somewhat parochial or insular because, after all, this problem arose out of what is surely a typical post-war development all over the world. These exchange restrictions are an irritating form of economic nationalism of which this country itself has not been guiltless. I should like to hear the right hon. Gentleman say that, although he has...

Finance Bill Amendments (Chairman's Selection) (21 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: As the right hon. Gentleman is quoting this as a precedent, can he tell us whether in that year the Supertax had been raised?

Oral Answers to Questions — Gold Coast: Deposed Chiefs (20 Jun 1951)
