Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: We are very glad to see the Financial Secretary to the Treasury with us. I understand that he will be winding up the debate tonight. We have missed him during the last day or two from the Standing Committee which is considering the Finance Bill. It is very good of him to come here. I know that he has been ill, and we appreciate very much that he has come here today, because he is and has been...

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman in a minute, but I would like to finish this point, because the Chancellor has said that on things of this sort he does not hear what one thinks should be done, and I would like to tell him. I would like to make two suggestions. First, I very much agree with the managing director of the International Monetary Fund and with my right hon. Friend the Member...

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I have just finished on what I have called the "main question", putting forward two points which I believe are the right policy. The hon. Gentleman has made that intervention many times to me and there are matters to which I will refer later. But for the moment we are debating the Letter of Intent. How serious is the position? The Chancellor was a bit "bullish" today and I hope that he is...

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Perhaps. I have made it clear, by my analysis of the unemployment figures and the figures of production of machine tools and investments, that I think that a number of danger lights are flashing. I do not think that there is any case for a more stringent squeeze which seems to be implied in the Letter of Intent. I am merely saying that I see no particular case for that. There is one last...

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: It has all right.

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Another mistake?

Orders of the Day — International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (25 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: This is a very important point. The right hon. Gentleman has just compared the amount of information which this Government give with the amount given by their Tory predecessors. He must be aware that a practice started in 1965 cancelled the previous system of publishing in full our indebtedness in the Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin. In the documents that his Government have produced has...

International Monetary Fund (Standby Facilities) (23 Jun 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The House will be grateful to the Chancellor for making available in advance of the debate both the statement today and, more particularly, the Letter of Intent. As he says, the debate will take place within a very short time. Is the Chancellor aware that both his statement and, more particularly, the Letter of Intent make quite clear his capitulation to the monetary policy doctrines of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Amendments to Part I of Schedule 1 to Purchase Tax Act 1963 (21 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I do not intend to invite debate, much less a Division, on this Schedule. We have made our position clear. I merely take 30 seconds, particularly with the Chancellor present, to record the end of what I think he will agree has been a most interesting experiment. By bad luck, we lost an hour today in injury time and 45 minutes yesterday. But taking that into account, the four subjects were...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Balance of Payments (20 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Has not the Chancellor made a pronouncement since the one to which his hon. Friend referred? Did he not last week, first of all, finally abandon the £500 million target, and, second, did he not slip, deliberately of course, from the calendar to the financial year, thereby obliterating three disastrous months of this year?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Selective Employment Tax (20 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: indicated dissent.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Selective Employment Tax (20 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I intend to be extremely brief. We have had an excellent debate, perhaps the best that we have had on this subject in the three years during which we have been discussing S.E.T. With the exception of half a speech, every speech has been devoted to tearing this tax to pieces. The exception in what the Committee regarded, I believe rightly, as a pathetic contribution came from the hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Selective Employment Tax (20 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Does not the hon. Gentleman realise that there is an Amendment dealing with hotels which has been selected and on which his observations would be precisely in order?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Selective Employment Payments (20 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: If I may intervene for a moment, and for the record, the hon. and learned Gentleman is comparing the value-added tax—on which I made clear earlier that we have not yet announced a final decision—with selective employment tax. The hon. and learned Gentleman is leaving out altogether the fact that if a value-added tax is introduced it will replace not only selective employment tax but...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Contributions (15 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The right hon. Gentleman said a moment ago that he was in effect assuming present trends. I do not ask for precision in his reply to this, but am I right in saying, therefore, that he is assuming something like, seasonally adjusted, the present level of unemployment, and that that is implicit in the figures he is giving to the House?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Contributions (15 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I simply want the Minister to answer the question about unemployment trends. We were promised an answer.

International Monetary Fund (Stand-by Credit) (14 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: (by Private Notice) asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement on the approach made by Her Majesty's Government to the International Monetary Fund concerning a new stand-by credit.

International Monetary Fund (Stand-by Credit) (14 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I have three points to put to the Chancellor. First, since we are to rise next week for the Whitsun Recess, will the right hon. Gentleman do everything he can to ensure that the statement and the Letter of Intent are released before we rise, and, in particular, will he make the Letter available in the Vote Office a few hours before he makes the statement so that there can be no...

International Monetary Fund (Stand-by Credit) (14 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Can the Chancellor clarify one point? The last two sets of trade figures have been very bad. One of them was available yesterday and the other only on the morning of Budget day. In the light of that deteriorating situation, how can the right hon. Gentleman still claim today that his Budget judgment and proposals are as valid today as he thought they were then?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: International Monetary Fund (Talks) (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The Financial Secretary referred to "excited newspaper headlines". Is he aware that a Treasury spokesman was quoted on the one o'clock news as having said that there had been discussions abcut "appropriate undertakings from the British Government"? In that event, why could not the House of Commons be informed of the position? Will he give the clearest undertaking that a full statement will be...
