Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign Currency (Speculation) (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Referring to the Prime Minister's answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Horsham (Mr. Hordern), will the right hon. Gentleman recognise that the anxieties expressed earlier from both sides of the House centre round the fact that if we are to wait until a letter of intent is published it will be too late for the collective wisdom of the House to impress itself on the Government? That is the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1969–70 (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I rise because it is frequently convenient for the Committee that the Shadow Chancellor should follow the Chancellor, and sometimes vice versa, and in no way, as the right hon. Gentleman made clear, to close the debate. There are many points that hon. Members still wish to make. Some people might say that in one sense today's appalling trade figures make the Amendment less persuasive. We...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1969–70 (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Only if the Chancellor takes the specific point which he has made. On the marginal rate—the Chief Secretary made this point a year ago and gave precisely these figures upstairs on 13th May, 1968—it is perfectly true that New Zealand is 60 per cent. at that point. What matters, however, is the total paid, and that I have already dealt with.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1969–70 (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The Chancellor is picking again the countries—Australia and New Zealand—which seem to suit his argument at precisely that point. It is exactly this of which I am complaining. The main point is the amount of disposable income which is left in the countries to which I have referred. We have heard from both the hon. Member for Heywood and Royton (Mr. Barnett) and the hon. Member for...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1969–70 (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman in one moment; I wish first, to add this footnote. The key words in what is said there refer to envy. The politics and the policies of envy are now completely out-of-date, and I believe, as the hon. Member for Bosworth says, that there is a new attitude towards wealth in this country.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1969–70 (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: It is something a little more than that. I will not take up all the hon. Gentleman's points. Unlike the Daily Mirror, I am in fierce opposition to the Government and to the Government's policies. The only point on which I agree with the hon. Gentleman is that we must have a wider base of taxation. I wish that I could take this point further without going out of order. He goes on to say that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Surtax Rates for 1968–69 (13 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Too little.

H.M.S.O. Publications Warehouse (Industrial Dispute) (8 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: On the industrial dispute side of that statement, is the right hon. Gentleman aware that as discussions are proceeding the only comment that I wish to make is to invite the right hon. Gentleman to keep the House closely informed, either through himself, or through the Department of Employment and Productivity, whichever is appropriate? Can the right hon. Gentleman go a little further on the...

H.M.S.O. Publications Warehouse (Industrial Dispute) (8 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Will the Chief Secretary return to the very important point which was made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Boyd-Carpenter) and which has been taken up by others of my hon. Friends? Are there copies available in the warehouse? Have the Government sent for those, and, if so, have they been refused?

Finance Bill (Copies) (6 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Mr. Speaker, you have given a Ruling about today's business. I wonder whether, on a point of order, I might ask you to consider a matter which arises on the question of Amendments to which one or two hon. Members have referred. As you know, Amendments to the Finance Bill are printed in the order in which they are received. It is, therefore, of some importance to hon. Members, particularly...

Finance Bill (6 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: My hon. Friend the Member for Louth (Sir C. Osborne) was, on the whole, gloomy in his economic analysis. Although I do not necessarily agree with him in detail, I am afraid that I, too, am gloomy about our economic position. I am sure that he hopes, as I do, that we will both be proved wrong. Second Reading of a Finance Bill is often a dull occasion sandwiched between the two major events...

Finance Bill (6 May 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The hon. and learned Gentleman must know from his postbag, as I know from mine, that there are a host of questions on the disallowance to which people are anxious to have answers. He has been asked whether he will consider producing a White Paper. Will he deal with that now?

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (21 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Mr. Iain Macleod (Enfield, West) rose—

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (21 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Would the right hon. Gentleman deal with two points? First, the Leader of the House, under strong pressure last Thursday, undertook that a statement would be made before the end of the Budget debate. Is the Chief Secretary now saying that that undertaking is to be fulfilled? Would he comment on that? Secondly, does the right hon. Gentleman realise that he is saying that the Chancellor, in...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I assume that the Chancellor is delayed by the I.M.F. and will presently take his place on the Front Bench—[Interruption.] I would have thought that it was a matter of the gravest discourtesy to the House, and one that all hon. Members of Parliament would appreciate. Yesterday the Chancellor was congratulated on his opening speech of two hours twenty minutes, and I willingly add my...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: So I should hope. I do not think that the Chancellor would welcome that intervention very much. A twelve-month average is obviously completely misleading in view of the situation immediately pre- and post-devaluation. I am, after all, taking—and deliberately taking—precisely the standard that Treasury Ministers are asking us to take. I propose to deal with the Budget in two...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: That is very different. On the question of subsidies, the point surely is whether one spreads the amount of money available in subsidies on the general system, which I understand to be acceptable on the other side of the House, or whether one isolates special cases of need, with all the arguments that I know that means about going back into the 1930s. In my view, it is right not only on...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: No. Third, we have made it quite clear that there are a number of parts of the paraphernalia of Socialism—the D.E.A., the Land Commission, the Industrial Expansion Act and much more—that we would sweep away. We hold the view that there is far too much Government in this country, and that there are too many people minding other people's business for them. The year 1968, apart from being...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Seven per cent. for a period, but Bank Rate has been at 7 per cent. and higher now for longer than at any period since the Bank of England was founded in 1694. The standards have disappeared. The second point is that the Chancellor last year took no less than £1,200 million in taxation from the people, and the objects with which he set out were not achieved because of the people's...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I shall refer to the hon. Gentleman in a minute and will then give way to him if he wants. My noble Friend, Lord Butler, used the money available, first, to reduce taxation, and second, to help through the social services where there was special need. It is a similar plan that we intend this time, although on a vastly greater scale. I said a moment ago that I would refer to the hon. Member...
