Orders of the Day — Electricity Bill (17 Dec 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: I quite agree with the hon. Gentleman, but I am sure he would recognise that men good enough to be offered these top jobs might well be seduced away by private enterprise for higher salaries.

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (21 Nov 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: Even if one can assume the fantasy on which the hon. Gentleman bases his calculations, surely he realises that anybody who buys a house reduces his own resources as a result. This is not in the least inflationary; this is an exchange.

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (21 Nov 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: I should first explain that although I am director of a company owning housing accommodation, and of a building company, I have no interest to declare, as the first company ranks as an housing association and the building company builds no houses for itself. I should like to refer to something about which the hon. Member for Aston (Mr. J. Silverman) spoke at the beginning of his speech. No...

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (21 Nov 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am grateful to the hon. Lady, and of course I know the property to which she refers. Surely she is not trying to describe as bad landlordism a case where it has not been possible, because of war and licensing, to do decent repairs. But I am trying to direct the attention of the House to the problem of under-occupation and, without making any party point, I say that both sides recognise this...

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (21 Nov 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: It seems to me that this Bill will create a free market in housing accommodation which will give such a person ample alternatives at cheaper rents, though possibly not so much accommodation and possibly accommodation not in such good condition. This Bill will achieve that. That is its purpose. By this Measure, people who have under-occupied housing space at a controlled rent will have to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Former Hungarian and Roumanian Property (Distribution) (31 Jul 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will direct the Administration of Enemy Property Department to delay the distribution of former Hungarian and Roumanian assets, in order to avoid the injustice of irretrievably depriving of their own property those victims of Nazi persecution who have complied with every condition prescribed by the said Department for the release of their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Former Hungarian and Roumanian Property (Distribution) (31 Jul 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: While thanking my right hon. Friend for his obvious awareness of the human tragedies behind this situation, may I ask whether he thinks that the creditors, many of whom, although perfectly legitimately, are several stages removed from the original transactions with Hungary and Rou-mania, would not press their claim so hard if they realised that a large part of their hoped-for dividend would...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No.2) BILL (9 May 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: May I ask for the indulgence of the House on this, the first time that I have had the honour to speak in this Chamber? I am fortunate enough to represent the constituency of Leeds, North-East, where so many of those who work in other parts of that great and famous "city of a hundred industries" have their homes. All my constituents are, of course, concerned with the health of the economy and...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No.2) BILL (9 May 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: rose—

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No.2) BILL (9 May 1956)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Reading (Mr. Mikardo) for letting me in. In making his claim, would he not admit that a recent publication by the Government shows that there were two periods during which wages and prices kept parallel, one being during the time of Sir Stafford Cripps and the other being immediately after the Conservative Government came into power, which seems to make...
