Dumping of German Wheat. (30 Oct 1929)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I beg to move, That immediate steps should be taken by the Government to counteract the injurious effect upon British agriculture of the dumping of German wheat and other cereals upon the markets of this country. I wish to direct the attention of the House this afternoon to the unfair competition to which British farmers are subjected at the present time on account of the dumping in this...

Dumping of German Wheat. (30 Oct 1929)

Sir Edward Iliffe: The imports of German bounty-fed wheat into this country last year were 25 times what they were in the previous year. I refer to the year which ended in July, 1929, compared with the year ended in July, 1928.

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry (Statistics). (6 May 1929)

Sir Edward Iliffe: 28. asked the Secretary for Mines the pit-head profit or loss per ton of coal disposable commercially during each quarter of 1928, and such figures as are available for 1929?

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: New Clause. — (Deduction for Income Tax purposes in respect of obsolete machinery.) (3 Jul 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." I would point out to the House and the Chancellor of the Exchequer that this Clause has nothing to do with the more complicated question of wasting assets. It is a proposal which if conceded might be well regarded as a self-contained act of justice. Its acceptance will not in any way prejudice the broader question of wasting assets. This...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: New Clause. — (Deduction for Income Tax purposes in respect of obsolete machinery.) (3 Jul 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: The particular paragraph which I quoted deals with obsolescence. The Commissioners were dealing with the broader question of wasting assets, but this particular paragraph only deals with the question of obsolescence.

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: New Clause. — (Deduction for Income Tax purposes in respect of obsolete machinery.) (3 Jul 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: In view of the statement made by the Financial Secretary I do not propose to press this Clause. I hope he will read my speech very carefully and I hope the Government will give it consideration. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Clause.

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: New Clause. — (Amendment of s. 21 of Finance Act, 1922, 12 and 13, Geo. V., c. 17.) (3 Jul 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." When the Finance Act of 1927 was being debated in this House, the Chancellor of the Exchequer pointed out that this particular section of the Finance Act would not become operative until this year, and he said that meantime he was prepared to consider any better methods which industry might devise to circumvent the Super-tax evader...

Orders of the Day — Postpone Clause 13. — (Income Tax and Super-tax for 1928–29.) (27 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: The taxpayer is in a better position than that, because, in assessing the tax for that year, the quarter is taken as a whole year's income, and, therefore, he would pay at a lower rate.

Orders of the Day — Postpone Clause 13. — (Income Tax and Super-tax for 1928–29.) (27 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I desire to make one or two observations on the question of co-operative societies and Income Tax. I do not propose to dwell on the broad question; I dealt with the matter fully last year, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer has explained to the Committee that the estimate of £100,000 as the loss in revenue which I challenged last year is to be investigated and that in due course we shall be...

Orders of the Day — Postpone Clause 13. — (Income Tax and Super-tax for 1928–29.) (27 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: That shows they have the utmost confidence in leaving the matter to me. There is, in fact, a considerable lack of interest on the part of members of the societies, and their interest is in buying in the cheapest possible market, which is only natural. We had the other day the President of the Co-operative Congress using these words: The apathy of the great majority of our 5,000,000 members,...

Orders of the Day — Postpone Clause 13. — (Income Tax and Super-tax for 1928–29.) (27 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I do not think it matters very much what the difference is. I do not think there should be any difference. Co-operative societies should be treated in the same way as ordinary private traders, and there would then be much more rest amongst the shop- keepers of the country. It would be a very desirable step for the Government to take.

Orders of the Day — Postpone Clause 13. — (Income Tax and Super-tax for 1928–29.) (27 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: How much do people have to pay to become members?

Orders of the Day — Postpone Clause 13. — (Income Tax and Super-tax for 1928–29.) (27 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: If they pay 1s. they get the rebates?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 11. — (Alteration of duties on licences for certain classes of mechanically-propelled vehicles.) (26 Jun 1928)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I put my name down to this Amendment to enable an alteration to be made subsequently to the Schedule. The effective words are: In the case of any vehicle the engine of which was constructed not less than five years before the date of licence, the duty shall be fifty per cent. of the duty otherwise charged under this paragraph. I would appeal to the Chancellor of the Exchequer to grant this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Road Construction. (22 Nov 1927)

Sir Edward Iliffe: 60. asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the completion of so many of the principal roads in the arterial road programme is throwing an increasing number of workpeople out of work; and whether he will expedite other works of new construction necessary to relieve the congestion on the approach roads to the great centres of population and provide the necessary road space for...

Office of Works and Public Buildings.: Clause 41. — (Provisions as to date of payment, assessment, etc., of Sur tax.) (19 Jul 1927)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I beg to move, to leave out the Clause. I move to leave out this Clause because I feel that the House even now does not fully realise what it really means, and that it would involve an extra year's surtax. That is due to the fact that the Chancellor of the Exchequer in making his Budget speech made it quite clear that this alteration was merely made in the interests of simplicity. The hon....

Office of Works and Public Buildings.: Clause 41. — (Provisions as to date of payment, assessment, etc., of Sur tax.) (19 Jul 1927)

Sir Edward Iliffe: In view of the fact that we shall have a further opportunity to consider the matter before the Clause comes into operation, I beg leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Clause 10 (Time for payment of beer duty) ordered to stand part of the Bill.: Clause 17. — (Income Tax and Super- tax for 1927–28.) (30 Jun 1927)

Sir Edward Iliffe: This Amendment was placed on the Order Paper by the hon. Member for Barnstaple (Sir B. Peto) in order to raise the question of the co-operative societies and the Income Tax.

Clause 10 (Time for payment of beer duty) ordered to stand part of the Bill.: Clause 17. — (Income Tax and Super- tax for 1927–28.) (30 Jun 1927)

Sir Edward Iliffe: I desire to raise the question of the co-operative societies and income Tax. There is a large body of opinion in this House and in the country which thinks it is unfair that a large body of traders should have any special privileges in regard to Income Tax. There is a great deal of difference of opinion as to the amount of revenue which is lost to the Treasury by this privilege to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Overseas Trade Department. (4 May 1927)

Sir Edward Iliffe: 46. asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the Balfour Committee on industry and trade has taken evidence in regard to the working of the Department of Overseas Trade, he will arrange for the Committee's Report to be placed at the disposal of Members of the House; or, if the Report is not ready, whether he will arrange for a special Report to be obtained from the Committee...
