Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.): Clause 16. — (Suspension of Initial Allowances.) (7 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I think it would be best, Major Milner, if I were to take the blame for the whole incident, for it is obviously the soporific nature of my remarks which is responsible. I do not at all complain of hon. Members taking their rest so long as they do so in an orderly manner. When this interlude came upon us, I was about to remark that this Amendment—[Interruption]—hon. Members should permit...

Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.): Clause 16. — (Suspension of Initial Allowances.) (7 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: May I say that I propose to continue my remarks, Major Milner, and that they will reach their conclusion in due course? The hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, South (Mr. Ellis Smith) will wish to support this Amendment because the effect of it would be greatly to strengthen British industry in its forthcoming contest with Japanese competition, to which he so rightly called our attention...

Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.): Clause 16. — (Suspension of Initial Allowances.) (7 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Those of us who have shared the long vigil of the hon. Gentleman, as some of us have done all night, had some sympathy with his closing remark that he thought it was time we got down to it. Certainly we are all looking forward to the some what lengthy discussion on the Question that the Clause should stand part of the Bill, which we shall be coming to shortly. In the meantime, I want to say...

Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.): Clause 16. — (Suspension of Initial Allowances.) (7 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: That was the impression the right hon. Gentleman gave me and no shaking of his head will alter my impression. I want to submit to the right hon. Gentleman, now that he is back with us, that this matter is linked in every way with that of merchant shipping and shipbuilding. The dry dock facilities will form undoubtedly as important a part of our war-time organisation, if such a thing be...

Korea (Operations) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Can the right hon. Gentleman tell the House whether His Majesty's representative in Peking is being granted proper facilities for access to our men who are prisoners in Chinese hands, and whether we are likely to receive a list of names at an early date?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 3. — (Three-Year Extension of Key Industry Duty.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: As you have indicated, Sir Charles, it is not possible for us to discuss the Amendment of my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon, East (Sir H. Williams), but I understand that it will be in order to invert the matter by asking the Chancellor what particular magic there is in this period of three years. My hon. Friend recapitulated very ably the history of this matter, and I think it is not...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I wonder if we might have some elucidation of this Clause, which is drafted in the language so dear to the hearts of the Parliamentary draftsmen. Its intention would appear to be benevolent and to give facilities for mobile vans to sell tobacco.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am grateful to the hon. Member, but I was coming to snuff in 10 minutes' time when I had deployed the case regarding tobacco. He has anticipated some observations which I hope to make shortly. If the hon. Member has to leave the Committee, may I assure him that HANSARD tomorrow will be well worth study in regard to my remarks on that topic. In the meantime, he is in a position to obtain a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The hon. Member behind the Financial Secretary shakes his head, but I still believe myself to be right. Is it not a valid point that, as everybody knows, the hours worked by shop assistants are now controlled by Statute, and that if they are going far afield to serve these various areas, unless there is some complicated system by which one driver or salesman relieves another halfway through...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am grateful to the Financial Secretary, because that rather strengthens, not so much the argument, but the submission which I am making. As the Shops Act applies, now we know, to mobile vans, does not the point about the hours of work apply? The Financial Secretary, apparently, is still engaging in consultation, and I do not want to interrupt any addendum there may be to the information...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: How pleased we are to have an intervention during this Committee stage from one whom we used to hear so frequently. It is the second time that the right hon. Member has intervened in our proceedings since we began yesterday, and in each case his interruptions have been to some humble remarks of mine. But the right hon. Member's remarks are unnecessarily concise. We would like him to rise and...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: The right hon. Gentleman shakes his head in the luxurious comfort of the third bench behind the Government, but he is in a position of greater freedom and lesser responsibility and I am sure he would not look at this in quite so lighthearted a manner were he in charge of the Finance Bill. I do not wish to take up more than a few minutes, because we wish to hear the right hon. Member for Colne...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Tobacco Licences for Vehicles in Special Cases.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am grateful to the Financial Secretary for his explanation, but he is misrepresenting me. I did not say that these people will have to go far afield to get their tobacco. I said I thought there were facilities which would come from far afield to them. Surely on these growing housing estates, and in the new towns and so on, the inhabitants are served by grocery vans which could supply tobacco.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 13. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1951–52.) (6 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I think that I can help my hon. Friend. We are working now to a formula which. I understand, the Patronage Secretary was good enough to lay down just before Easter when the question of late Sittings was being discussed. He then said that if hon. Members opposite wanted all-night Sittings, let there be sittings until breakfast time. That is his point of view. The Patronage Secretary being a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, Petrol Substitutes and Power Methylated Spirits.) (5 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: May I very respectfully make a submission to you, Major Milner, with regard to the other Amendments which you have not selected? Where a Clause increases a tax, are there not ample precedents for Private Members seeking to move definitive Amendments excluding certain sections of the taxpayers? The precedent I would quote was in 1947, when the Tobacco Duty was raised and there was a Private...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, Petrol Substitutes and Power Methylated Spirits.) (5 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: When, a few minutes ago, the Committee was dealing with certain procedural difficulties, the right hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) pointed out that we are now confronted with what must be described as a bulldozer, and definitive objections cannot be taken through the Division Lobby. I think that all that remains is for those of us who object to this increased duty to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, Petrol Substitutes and Power Methylated Spirits.) (5 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: That was the result of the opportunity of debating the matter in detail a year ago in Committee, and the hon. Gentleman must know that these concessions, which really were of very small value, were the result of discussions on the increased duty which operated in the financial year 1950–51. We are now confronted with yet another increase for the year 1951–52, so that the case for a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Entertainments Duty.) (5 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: There is one administrative point on which I would like elucidation. The Financial Secretary has just told the Committee that 5th August was the first convenient date or the first possible date when this could come into operation.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Entertainments Duty.) (5 Jun 1951)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I am glad to be reinforced by the right hon. Gentleman the late Financial Secretary, whose absence from the Treasury Bench we deplore on this occasion. Why choose the Sunday which falls in the middle of Bank Holiday week-end as the moment for this to come into operation? Surely it will cause difficulty, not only in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Torquay (Mr. C. Williams)...
