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

Mr Iain Macleod: It may be a question of clarification, but I understood the right hon. Gentleman to say that the Liberal Party had advocated in place of S.E.T. a payroll tax at the level of 7s. 6d. However, a payroll tax, as normally understood, is a percentage. If it is to be 7s. 6d., I take it to be a poll tax. Which does he mean?

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

Mr Iain Macleod: If the Financial Secretary is right—and there is substance in what he says—that there is a link between interest rates in Britain and those in other countries, particularly the American prime rate, why was it that the most convincing promises were given by almost every hon. Member opposite in their election addresses in 1964, particularly by the Prime Minister, that they would bring the...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Taxation (Married Couples) (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: With respect to the Minister of State, what he is saying is that an injustice does not matter if comparatively few people are affected by it, and we find that an intolerable reflection.

Oral Answers to Questions — Parliamentary Questions (2 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Would the right hon. Gentleman consider another point, namely, that frequently, owing to the phasing, Questions to the Treasury and the Department of Economic Affairs come top in the same week? Would he try to arrange a different phasing, even if the day is not altered?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Short-term Capital Gains Tax (1 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: May I raise a point of order, Mr. Speaker, which I have postponed until the end of Question Time? This arises out of an answer by the Chief Secretary to my hon. Friend the Member for Acton (Mr. Kenneth Baker) on Question No. 25, which was a purely routine Question about the yield of a tax. At the end of the supplementaries the Chief Secretary said words to the effect that my hon. Friend was...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Import Deposits Scheme (1 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Will the Financial Secretary recognise that much has happened since last November and firm up his Answer by simply saying "Yes, Sir"?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Import Deposits Scheme (1 Apr 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Does not the Financial Secretary realise that by giving that last answer he has injected precisely the note of doubt which he could so easily clear up and which will be disastrous if it is left?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Private and Public Consumption (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Is the Secretary of State aware that the Question on the Order Paper has nothing at all to do with that point? If he cannot answer the supplementary questions so far put to him, may I put a more simple question to him? Is it or is it not true that the Chancellor of the Exchequer set out a year ago in his Budget to reduce consumption, and did he or did he not succeed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Unemployment and the Balance of Payments (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The right hon. Gentleman knows the anxiety in the House about the unemployment figures. Does he recall the statement of the Prime Minister on 20th July, 1966, that the upper limit might be of the order of 2 per cent.? Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that for about 21 months the figure has been above 2 per cent.? Does he see any prospect of it dropping below that?

Business of the House (6 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Now that the Budget day has been announced, could the right hon. Gentleman arrange for a statement next week, or, better still, could he tell us now, what the Government's plans are for taking the subsequent stages of the Finance Bill, and the key debates linked with them?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Short-term International Borrowing (4 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Would the hon. Gentleman agree that prior to 1965 this information was given as quickly as possible in the succeeding Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin? Does not he realise that it is not possible to judge the exact extent of our obligations to other countries unless this practice is reviewed, as the Question requests?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Foreign Loans (Capital and Interest Payments) (4 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: As the figures which the Chancellor has given to the House of just under £500 million are clearly in excess of any likely balance of payments surplus this year, will he answer the last part of my hon. Friend's question: how does he plan to finance these payments?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Capital and Interest (Average Net Flow) (4 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: To which appropriate Government publication is the Financial Secretary referring?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Selective Employment Tax and Purchase Tax (4 Mar 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: On a point of order. Mr. Speaker, would you instruct Treasury Ministers at 3.30 to answer some of the Questions that, owing to their incompetence, have been passed over in the last few minutes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Chancellor of the Exchequer (Speech) (27 Feb 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Does the right hon. Gentleman recall that only yesterday the First Secretary of State, at that Box, was painting the clouds with sunshine and giving us an account of how things were going so well in the economy? Does he not realise that for about the fiftieth time this has been followed by a disastrous announcement on behalf of the Government? Would he please try to coordinate, to get some...

Economic Assessment to 1972 (26 Feb 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that we are glad to see him in better health? Although we have fierce views on the future of his Ministry, I would regard it as indelicate to take them up today when we are discussing what, with luck, will prove to be the epitaph of his Department. The right hon. Gentleman has put a range of three different targets of growth before the House: the basic case...

PUBLIC EXPENDITURE 1968–69 to 1970–71 (20 Feb 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware, particularly in view of the confusion that arose a year ago about the Vote on Account, that his statement, although lengthy, is very welcome? Secondly, is he also aware, if I take him aright on a point he made earlier, when he seemed to be suggesting that the collective wisdom of the House or that part of it which takes a close interest in these matters,...

PUBLIC EXPENDITURE 1968–69 to 1970–71 (20 Feb 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I understand that, and I am sure that the House does, but the right hon. Gentleman did not answer the specific point I put to him. The figures today, which I concede are in line with a year ago, are also in line with the National Plan. When the plan came out, and I have the quotation here, it was said that the level of public expenditure must depend, in turn, upon the level of growth. Does...

Orders of the Day — Compulsory Control of Incomes (13 Feb 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: I am sorry to disappoint the right hon. Lady. Perhaps she will take it from me, as a personal assurance, that I did not draft the Motion, but that my right hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham (Mr. R. Carr) did.

Earnings-Related Social Security (White Paper) (28 Jan 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I raise a point of order on which perhaps the Leader of the House can help us? I have in my hand, and there is available in the Vote Office, the Government White Paper, "Proposals for earnings related social security". Clearly, this is a document of the highest importance in which all hon. Members are interested. My point of order is that it has been...
