Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (13 Apr 1959)

Mr Hugh Dalton: This is a question of arithmetic, is it not'? The Treasury is clever enough, if so instructed by Treasury Ministers, to work out a plan for reducing the standard rate, but not creating anything like the tremendous disparity shown in the White Paper. What I did in the Budget that has been referred to was to put up Surtax on the larger incomes, which counteracted, to a large extent, what they...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation ( 8 Apr 1959)

Mr Hugh Dalton: The Paymaster-General, as we always expect, showed great intellectual ingenuity in defending proposals which had been subject to severe criticism by my right hon. Friend the Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson), to some points of which the right hon. Gentleman turned a blind eye. It was amusing, and I enjoyed the deviation towards the end of the right hon. Gentleman's speech in discussing not...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation ( 8 Apr 1959)

Mr Hugh Dalton: That is an interesting general answer, and I should be very grateful if later on the Chancellor could give us an exact figure, because I should find it very interesting. I do not think the Chancellor must expect that people will go on drinking his health wherever beer is consumed for very long. I think he should be warned, in the light of history, that popularity evaporates very quickly if...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation ( 8 Apr 1959)

Mr Hugh Dalton: I did not call it an electioneering Budget. I was merely presenting a general reflection. It may well be that at the end of six months time, when we have had thorough debates and discussions about all this, the Opposition will be getting the credit for nearly all the real improvements which the Budget has made, because recollection is a very queer thing. However, I will not develop that...

Anglo-Egyptian Financial Agreement (16 Mar 1959)

Mr Hugh Dalton: As a matter of history, was it not Mr. Disraeli who nationalised the Canal?

Mr Hugh Dalton: Long term.

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: We have all understood the questions which have been raised, but let me put a specific question. Supposing that in the new town of Peterlee—which several of us know very well—there were grave failure to provide amenities for the population, would it be possible to question the Minister himself in the House on that failure? Yes, or no?

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: Answer the question.

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: In what Clause is that stated?

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: The hon. Member is misleading the House. He has just said that, quite apart from the provisions of the Schedule, the Commission must appoint these bodies. I ask him in what Clause that provision is to be found and he refers me to the Schedule. He has not read the Bill himself.

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: In 1950 and 1951 it so happened that I was the Minister responsible for the new towns then being built under the Labour Government, 1946 Act. I have, therefore, taken a continuous interest in this matter. I think that what my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) said and illustrated with particular examples of the visiting list of the new town of Harlow, should be...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: The hon. Member represents Hexham, and I am not so sure that it would not be a good idea to have a new town somewhere in the great State forests there.

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)

Mr Hugh Dalton: All that can be looked at, and it is the duty of the Minister to look at it, but as the hon. Member for Hexham (Mr. Speir) has interjected, I venture to say that it might be good to contemplate a new town in the Kielder Forest. Since the hon. Member has mentioned it, I do not think that it at all follows that the North of England should not have towns additional to those already created, to...

Mr Hugh Dalton: Aycliffe is fairly good.

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill ( 1 Dec 1958)
