Orders of the Day — MARRIED WOMEN (RESTRAINT UPON ANTICIPATION) BILL [Lords] (29 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: The hon. and learned Gentleman is quite wrong in saying that the point was raised from this side. What actually happened was that it was raised from the other side, namely, in the contention that if this Bill were passed Surtax would be avoided. I merely said that would be wrong, and that, therefore, the objection which the Opposition had to the Bill had no foundation.

Orders of the Day — MARRIED WOMEN (RESTRAINT UPON ANTICIPATION) BILL [Lords] (29 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: If the hon. and learned Gentleman will read HANSARD tomorrow, he will find that I did not say a word about capital. How on earth can the lifting of a restraint upon anticipation allow the beneficiary to deal with the capital, other things being equal?

Orders of the Day — MARRIED WOMEN (RESTRAINT UPON ANTICIPATION) BILL [Lords] (29 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: On the Second Reading of this Bill it is quite true I did ask that this kind of proposal might be examined because I had in view the type of case, not where a creditor should be defeated, but where a married woman' might have a husband of this sort—and there are indeed husbands of this sort about only too anxious to get hold of the wife's money and spend it in a wasteful and unwise way. I...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (14 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: The right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) said earlier that there was nothing in this Bill to get worked up about, but I and my hon. Friends here have been delighted to hear the most vigorous indictment of the Conservative Party in this matter that we have heard in the course of these discussions. The right hon. and learned Gentleman also said that this...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (14 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: In instancing disagreement between my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock (Miss Lee) and myself, does the hon. Member realise that what he is saying now is directly contrary to what was said by his hon. Friend the Member for Devizes (Mr. Hollis) on the Second Reading?

Mr Terence Donovan: ; Except that it is looked at in every individual case.

Orders of the Day — MARRIED WOMEN (RESTRAINT UPON ANTICIPATION) BILL [Lords] (7 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: I confess that I have been sitting on the fence in this matter. I have read the very cogent speech of Lord Simon in another place against the Bill and was convinced by that, and then on reading the equally cogent speech of Lord Simonds I was in turn converted by that. And so I came to the House today in a neutral frame of mind. The arguments for and against the Bill are, I think, very nicely...

Orders of the Day — MARRIED WOMEN (RESTRAINT UPON ANTICIPATION) BILL [Lords] (7 Nov 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: If the hon. and learned Member is not careful he will lead me back to that state of uncertainty from which I thought I had escaped.

Orders of the Day — Restaurant Meals, Price Limit (21 Jul 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: Not Leicester?

Orders of the Day — Restaurant Meals, Price Limit (21 Jul 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: I very seldom find myself in agreement with the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling), but I must say that he has made out a formidable case for the revision of this order. I have no personal interest in this matter. I do not eat any lunch, and I find it quite possible to get along on 5s. for my dinner. I went out and back to South Africa last year on a British liner, and I was astonished...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Footballers' Benefits.) (27 Jun 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: I hope I shall be forgiven as a representative of a city whose football team performed such prodigies last season if I say a word or two on this matter. Before the Cup Final, the Football Association kindly wrote to me and said they would be according me as such a representative an official invitation, for which I thanked them very much. The official invitation never came along, and I found...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 19. — (Interest Payable Abroad to Be Deductible in Computing Profits in Certain Cases.) (23 Jun 1949)

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 21. — (Borrowings Against Life Policies to Be Treated as Income in Certain Cases.) (23 Jun 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: The incidence of tax on life annuities has long been recognised to contain a strong element of hardship. Money is saved out of taxed income; a life annuity is bought with the savings; when the annuity comes in, it is taxed in full although the bulk of it represents taxed savings coming back in the form of capital. Any attempt to remedy this is not immoral nor is it anti-social. Parliament...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 21. — (Borrowings Against Life Policies to Be Treated as Income in Certain Cases.) (23 Jun 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: My information is that there was no warning given by the Chancellor of the Exchequer that if further policies were issued legislation would follow, that there was nothing so specific as that. My information is that this company asked the Board of Inland Revenue some time after that, whether the Board would tell it precisely what its intentions were, and whether the company could, or could...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (18 May 1949)

Mr Terence Donovan: I always read these Finance Bills and the Acts which are subsequently born out of them with gloom and depression, and sometimes with complete incomprehension. If I were sitting on the other side of the House the customary gloom and depression would certainly not have been lessened by the long speech to which we have just listened. I am almost feeling in need of a small dose of that spirit...
