Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Cadet Officers (Uniforms) (20 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Will the Sea Cadet Corps be brought within the scope of the inquiry promised yesterday between the Treasury and the Service Departments relating to the whole question of uniform allowances?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Class Z Reserve (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Is waiting in the mess an administrative duty?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Gloucestershire Regiment (Recognition) (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: How soon will the right hon. Gentleman be able to announce the form that this recognition will take?

New Clause. — (Uniform Allowances for Officers of His Majesty's Forces.) (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am sure that the Committee is gratified by the terms of the Financial Secretary's reply and by his revealing remarks on the subject of Rule 9, which escaped most of us during the time when we were wearing uniform. I rise only to ask the hon. Gentleman whether such concessions can be made retrospective. There is one point in particular upon which the hon. Gentleman may be able to help. It...

New Clause. — (Increased Reduction of Duty on Publicans' Licences.) (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: In resisting this Clause I thought the Financial Secretary was on sound grounds this year when he pointed out that it was a year in which concessions could not be made, but that is no reason for the case not being deployed. If I may return to one of my favourite descriptions, I think the publicans should take their place in the annual parade so that their case should be kept under...

New Clause. — (Increased Reduction of Duty on Publicans' Licences.) (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I fear that the hon. Gentleman's interruption had a somewhat sinister implication. Knowing him as we do, I would suggest that what he had in mind was a raising rather than a lowering of the duty. I have never known the hon. Member advocate in this Committee that we should let anybody off any taxation. My hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge (Mr. G. Williams) talked about conditions in "pubs"...

Fifth Schedule. — (Purchase Tax (Amendments of Schedule of Chargeable Goods).) (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am sure we all have great respect for the hon. Member for the Scotland Division of Liverpool (Mr. Logan), but his criticism is hardly fair. After all, we are discussing what is on the Order Paper, and it would be difficult for us to discuss anything else. Moreover, we endeavoured some time ago to ensure that this discussion took place at an hour which the hon. Gentleman might think more...

Fifth Schedule. — (Purchase Tax (Amendments of Schedule of Chargeable Goods).) (19 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: By making speeches no doubt the hon. Gentleman can achieve that. But now that we have got back to a calmer atmosphere, I want to ask the Financial Secretary whether my understanding is correct, that all these discussions on which we are now embarking are to be laid in abeyance while the right hon. Gentleman reconsiders these proposals between now and Report stage? In other words, none of them...

New Clause. — (Off-Licences, Minimum Quantity of Spirits to Be Sold.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The Financial Secretary said a few minutes ago that the Government have no strong feeling on this matter. I think that we can fairly add that he produced no strong arguments against this new Clause. As I understood the hon. Gentleman, he leaned with comfort on the strong differences of opinion between those who hold on-licences and those who hold off-licences. But is that really the case? I...

New Clause. — (Amendment as to Allowance for Repairs.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: On a point of order. Do I understand, Sir Charles, that there is to be no opportunity of discussing season tickets or post-war credits?

New Clause. — (Allowance for Domestic Expenses.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The Committee would be wise to pin its hopes to the preamble of the right hon. Gentleman's recent utterance, which, in the language of the Book of Common Prayer, might be described as "comforting words." If we listened carefully to what he said, we realise that he has this matter at heart and will hand it over to his successor at an early date so that his pledge that the matter will be dealt...

New Clause. — (AMENDMENT OF FINANCE ACT, 1947, s. 33.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." This raises a matter which was discussed during the progress of the Finance Bill, 1949. Hon. Members who are interested will find at columns 1098 to 1112 of the OFFICIAL REPORT of 28th June of that year the debate which we had two years ago. On that occasion the right hon. and learned Gentleman, who was then Solicitor-General and has...

New Clause. — (AMENDMENT OF FINANCE ACT, 1947, s. 33.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Do not let the right hon. Gentleman shake his head until he hears the proposition. I do not think he will disagree with the proposition that Income Tax reliefs are difficult to claim and that the Profits Tax seems a far more practicable field in which to give assistance to this type of business. If the right hon. Gentleman disagrees—and I hope he does not I will call in aid another right...

New Clause. — (AMENDMENT OF FINANCE ACT, 1947, s. 33.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I was hoping that we should have heard one more word from the Economic Secretary, because I think it would be a pity if the debate on this Clause were concluded without one of his remarks being challenged. He said that the object of this Clause was to raise the limit of free income. With respect to the Economic Secretary, it does nothing of the kind.

New Clause. — (AMENDMENT OF FINANCE ACT, 1947, s. 33.) (18 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: With respect, the hon. Gentleman did not. That was the objection he gave. But, even if he did, he is still incorrect, because the new Clause also widens the rebate sphere from £3,000 to £18,000. What it is doing is to increase the rebate which, after all said and done, is really a different matter. When the hon. Gentleman says that this is a question of principle, we must remember that it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prisons: Labour (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Does the Home Secretary not agree that the hours of work which he imposes upon the occupants of His Majesty's prisons compare unfavourably with the hours of work which he imposes upon hon. Members of this House?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Time in Relation to Relief from Income Tax and the Profits Tax for Capital Expenditure on Rehabilitation.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am sure we are grateful for the Economic Secretary's extremely painstaking reply. In the year 1951 it is a little difficult to discuss a rather technical matter which received so much attention two years ago. I have before me the OFFICIAL REPORT of the discussion on Sir Stafford Cripps' first Budget, which was later embodied in the Finance Bill, 1948, when the Paymaster-General of the day,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Dried and Crystallized Figs.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am not certain whether the Minister is ready to go to press. I think this is an example of how often in the House of Commons an innocuous-looking Amendment or Clause leads to a discussion of great interest and of some complication.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Dried and Crystallized Figs.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I hope the hon. Gentleman will take his duties seriously. No reference to Ascot has been made on this side of the Committee during the discussion of this Clause. While I feel it would probably be wide of the Clause to embark upon a discussion of the merits of Imperial Preference or the ramifications of the Torquay Conference, I would endorse the remarks of my right hon. and gallant Friend the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Dried and Crystallized Figs.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I think we might be reminded of the meaning of the definition of "drained figs" which appeared in that Act, because it appears in the new Clause in specific terms. I wonder whether it means "dehydrated"—figs from which the water has been extracted. Can we know what reciprocal arrangements there have been with Turkey?
