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

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am not clear whether the phrase, "shut up" is a Parliamentary term, but I think that what the hon. Member for Bermondsey (Mr. Mellish) means is that if I would draw my remarks to a conclusion and resume my seat, the Minister might be prepared to utter an explanation. One would like to know a great deal more about what happened about Turkey at Torquay. I will not go so far as my hon....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Reduction of Entertainments Duty in Case of Racing of Motor Cycles with Standard Power Units.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Will the hon. Gentleman allow me? Without disagreeing with his main argument at all, may I ask him, when he says that the speedway public may be driven into the cinemas, whether it is not the case that the cinemas are also complaining of falling attendances, and whether the real trouble before the Committee is the height of Entertainments Duty as a whole?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Exemption from Income Tax of Fire-Call Attendance and Turn-Out Fees of Part-Time Retained Voluntary Firemen.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The speech of the hon. Member for Rotherham (Mr. Jack Jones), apart from one provocative remark to which I shall not attempt to reply, has emphasised that there is emerging from this debate a general desire in the Committee for something to be done for these firemen. There is, however, a difference of method. The hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) and the hon. Member for Rotherham have...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Exemption from Income Tax of Fire-Call Attendance and Turn-Out Fees of Part-Time Retained Voluntary Firemen.) (14 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: If what the Financial Secretary says is true, then I am sorry to say that my argument is destroyed, because I was going to suggest that if the first £50 of remuneration to lifeboat crews is exempt, the same might apply to firemen, although I think it might be more expensive to the Treasury than the new Clause proposes. However, if the Financial Secretary assures us that we are wrong about...

Business of the House (13 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Will the right hon. Gentleman do his best, in what are admittedly difficult circumstances, to safeguard the Question hour which is of such importance to Private Members on both sides, and also see what he can do in his capicity as Leader of the House to ensure that important Adjournments debates, such as that mentioned by Mr. Speaker this afternoon in connection with the lady at Stevenage,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 32. — (Restriction of Certain Transactions Leading to Avoid Ance of Income Tax or Profits Tax.) (13 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: May I preface my remarks by expressing what I am sure are the hopes of all of us that the learned Attorney-General has had a refreshing sleep since we parted? I note with great satisfaction that he has regained that fresh complexion which we all admire, presumably without recourse to devices with which the fairer sex sometimes fortify themselves. [HON. MEMBERS: "Order."] I think there is...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 32. — (Restriction of Certain Transactions Leading to Avoid Ance of Income Tax or Profits Tax.) (13 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I think that the Committee will agree that the hon. Member for Edinburgh, South (Sir W. Darling) did himself a grievous injustice when he described himself as an ordinary, common man. Neither of these descriptions apply to my hon. Friend, who has so enlivened the debate. We were proceeding on pleasant, placid and constructive lines and on an extremely high level of debate prior to the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 32. — (Restriction of Certain Transactions Leading to Avoid Ance of Income Tax or Profits Tax.) (13 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: If the hon. Gentleman wishes to go to Ascot we are not stopping him. He will have to have a few serious words with the Patronage Secretary before he so indulges himself. I would respectfully suggest that he will find the proceedings of this Committee more congenial, less expensive and far more calculable than he will find things there. I think that it would be difficult to find anything more...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 32. — (Restriction of Certain Transactions Leading to Avoid Ance of Income Tax or Profits Tax.) (13 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I was merely answering the hon. Gentleman's desire to go to the races. The right hon. Member for Colne Valley stated that there were precedents for this course of action which the Government are taking. He did not give to the Committee the Statutes which he had in mind. It is quite true that there are precedents. I want to submit to the Attorney-General that they are not precedents which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Japan (Peace Treaty) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Would it not be to the advantage of the House if an opportunity were given to the House to express an opinion on the possible repercussions on our trade of such a treaty?

Clause 24. — (Rates of Profits Tax, etc.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Can we have some assurance that the Closure will not be applied?

Clause 24. — (Rates of Profits Tax, etc.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: You were good enough, Major Milner, to advise the Committee that the debate on this particular Amendment might now come to an end. You went on to say that the arguments would be better deployed on the Motion, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill." I am sure it would affect the decision of hon. Members who are trying to catch your eye now if they had some assurance that they will not be gagged.

Clause 24. — (Rates of Profits Tax, etc.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The whole Committee must feel indebted to my hon. Friend the Member for Henley (Mr. Hay), in initiating so instructive a discussion. What so often happens in the House of Commons is that when the Committee stage is conducted in a dilatory manner, as it is today, a number of points emerge which might have gone entirely undiscussed. I hope that before the Committee is asked to come to a...

Clause 26. — (Increase, in Certain Cases, of Deductions Allowable for Directors' Remuneration.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Although there are no Amendments down on the Order Paper on this Clause, I had intended at this stage, when we are discussing the Motion, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill," to ask, purely as a layman, one or two questions as to the meanings of this provision, which the Financial Secretary himself confessed to be complicated. When I found that my hon. and learned Friend the Member for...

Clause 26. — (Increase, in Certain Cases, of Deductions Allowable for Directors' Remuneration.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I thought the hon. Member for Jarrow (Mr. Fernyhough) would show his sympathies with the legal profession. He will agree with me, I am sure, that his constituents would prefer—

Clause 26. — (Increase, in Certain Cases, of Deductions Allowable for Directors' Remuneration.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I hope the hon. Member will not take too constricted a view of his duties. Here he sits, and we are very pleased to see him, at one o'clock in the morning, taking part in the Committee stage of the Finance Bill, which we are now shaping. As he is with us. I think he should try to see that the Clause is made as workable as possible. Now that he has come in, however temporarily, I hope he will...

Clause 27. — (Effect of Capitalisation of Profits on Rate of Profits Tax.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Before the Committee parts with this Clause, may I raise one matter arising out of the debate on the last Amendment, when the Attorney-General, despite considerable pressure, insisted that the nationalised industries profits rank for the purpose of this machinery. I feel, in view of that, that between now and the Report stage, the Government ought to insert a new definition of "a...

Clause 27. — (Effect of Capitalisation of Profits on Rate of Profits Tax.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Eloquent words, certainly, but on the record. I remember the emphasis with which they were delivered. They were the right hon. Gentleman's opinion at the time, and he was speaking as Chancellor of the Exchequer of the day on behalf of the Government of that time. That is the only point I want to establish. It is rather soon for us to have that definition upset by the Attorney-General. I would...

Clause 28. — (Transactions Designed to Avoid Liability to the Profits Tax.) (11 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: We are pleased to have had the two contributions from the benches opposite. But at the conclusion of what I am sure hon. Members opposite will agree has been a very good tempered all-night Sitting, I am sorry that the hon. Member for Bilston (Mr. Nally), who has now apparently assumed very much more responsibility in the party opposite, should have been the first to strike a jarring note. But...
