Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (29 Apr 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: I had not intended to intervene in the debate, because this has been a very simple Budget and we had a very simple Finance Bill, but some of the arguments I have heard are so misrepresentative and so fallacious that I feel provoked to make one or two comments, although perhaps not at such great length as did the hon. Member for Islington, East (Mr. E. Fletcher). In the first place, the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (29 Apr 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: That may be so, but it does not affect what I am saying. The abolition of the taxes on petrol and entertainments proposed by the Opposition would give greater relief to the rich than does this reduction in Income Tax. Many hon. Members opposite have delightfully luxurious motor cars, they know the consumption of petrol involved and they can work the figures out for themselves. They have also...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (29 Apr 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: The average holding—and this affects the tax position—is under £300, so that instead of trying to prejudice the issue by saying, "This company receives so much money and that company receives so much money." hon. Members opposite should say that in those companies the shareholder with the £300 holding—the average shareholder—will have 6d. less taken off his dividends and 6d. less...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (29 Apr 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: It is not a question of the total amount involved. The argument used by the Opposition was the effect on the individual. When the Opposition propose the reduction of the Entertainments Duty and the petrol tax, we therefore have to examine the effect on the individual to see whether that would make the Budget more of a rich man's Budget than does the reduction in the standard rate.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (29 Apr 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: If the dividend is not increased or decreased, then the shareholder will get the benefit of the deduction of 6d. less in tax from that part of the total profit which reaches him.

Orders of the Day — Navy Estimates, 1955–56: Vote 14. Merchant Shipbuilding and Repairs (15 Mar 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: Order. I do not like to interrupt the hon. Member but he is going a little wide of this Vote.

Orders of the Day — Navy Estimates, 1955–56: Vote 14. Merchant Shipbuilding and Repairs (15 Mar 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: No, that is the position only on this Vote. There are other opportunities for discussing the whole of that policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Indian Cloth (Imports) (22 Feb 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind, when considering this problem, the possible repercussions on our large and growing exports to America which are below the cost of production in America?

Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill (22 Feb 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: The right hon. Gentleman would vote against it if he had any guts.

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill: New Clause. — (Advisory Committee.) (7 Feb 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: I do hope my right hon. Friend will resist this new Clause. The speech we have just heard from the right hon. Member for Wakefield (Mr. Creech Jones) appeared to be conclusive against appointing the suggested committee. He said that many of these questions raised deep political considerations. I contend that deep political considerations should be discussed by the House of Commons and not by...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill: Purchase Tax (Pedal Cycle Motor Units) (7 Feb 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: There are one or two things which I should like to say about this Order, but, before I do so, I should declare that I am largely interested in the manufacture of bicycle accessories, although not this particular accessory. I have stated such interest as I have, and I would say that, so far as the Order is concerned, I think that there is a little more to be said than has been said about the...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill: Purchase Tax (Pedal Cycle Motor Units) (7 Feb 1955)

Mr Arthur Colegate: The fact that the size of a motor is defined by its cubic capacity is not affected by whether there are pedals or not. I do not mind whether there are pedals, or not. All I say is that 50 cubic centimetres and below is a reasonable line. The 75 cubic centimetre model has only just come on to the market and there are not many about. Now is the right time to fix the dividing line.

Representation of the People (Parliamentary Constituencies) (16 Dec 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: On a point of order. Are we discussing the Bosworth and Loughborough Order?

Representation of the People (Parliamentary Constituencies) (16 Dec 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: It is not a conversation; it is a monologue.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Staunton Harold Hall, Leicestershire (14 Dec 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will make a statement with regard to the future of Staunton Harold Hall, Leicestershire.

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: The Minister has announced the fate of four of these civil servants. He said there were five concerned. Can he say what has been done about the fifth?

Crichel Down (20 Jul 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: It depends on the price.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Glove Industry, Leicester (6 Jul 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: Would the Minister say whether he is of the opinion that, with the liberalisation of East-West trade, there will not be still stronger competition with this country?

Orders of the Day — Television Bill: Clause 2. — (Powers of Authority.) (19 May 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: But surely people abroad have no difficulty in distinguishing between "The Times," which is taken by every foreign Chancellory in the world, and the "Daily Mirror."

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (3 May 1954)

Mr Arthur Colegate: I will detain the House for only a few minutes, and I want to deal in particular with Clauses 15 and 25. I thought the right hon. and learned Member for Neepsend (Sir F. Soskice) gave us a most lucid speech which hid the most confused thinking on this subject which I have heard for some time. Several of his assumptions appear to be highly erroneous. Surely it is contrary to our historical...
