Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Balance of Payments (21 Jan 1969)

Mr Iain Macleod: The Finance Secretary referred to the Chancellor's earlier forecast. Does he mean the White Paper forecast issued at the time of the Budget or any later observations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Draft Planning Document (19 Dec 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: Would the right hon. Gentleman undertake to put personally to the Prime Minister the very strong feeling that clearly there is on both sides of the House about the question of publication? Does he realise that the danger is of creating an entirely new category? If this is to be a private paper for the N.E.D.C, we can understand that, but in that case there should have been no Press conference...

New Clause 2: Description of Candidate in Nomination Paper and on Ballot Paper (18 Dec 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: I apologise to the right hon. Gentleman for intervening on this Bill, but it interests us all. He has been considering the question of misleading descriptions. Would he also consider the possibility of a description which is not misleading in that sense? As he will know, six words to a good journalist can be a mini-manifesto. Surely it would be extremely undesirable if, for example, John...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Money Supply (26 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us, for information, what definition he is taking of money supply for the purpose of this Answer? Is it cash in circulation plus bank deposits?

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (25 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: And the most money.

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (25 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: I start with two notes of congratulation, first to the hon. Member for Manchester, Wythenshawe (Mr. Alfred Morris) on the blinding revelation that, rather more than three years after it was published, he has discovered the Conservative Party's agricultural policy. We fought every by-election in this Parliament on it, but he treated today's speech made by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (25 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: That is not worth going into. The hon. Member's real point was that he thought that a new discovery had been made this afternoon. Secondly, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for the New Forest (Mr. McNair-Wilson). We welcome him back. I cannot congratulate him on a maiden speech and it would be wrong to call it a half-maiden. At any rate, he is very welcome back in our midst. In...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (25 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: I have all the quotations here and I am covering the point which the hon. Member is about to make. I have said that I believe that if there is to be a move in this field, then this is the best of various schemes. I have always said that and I hold to that point now. But that is all. I do not like it, and I do not suppose the Chancellor likes it either—and the President of the Board of...

Chancellor of the Exchequer (Visit to Bonn) (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: Although this is a holding statement, the House will be grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for making it and for submitting himself to questions. While we are waiting for a fuller statement from the Chancellor, I would like to put just two points. First, it is, of course, a serious step to close the London foreign exchange market. When does he expect it to reopen? I hope that it will be...

Orders of the Day — House of Lords Reform (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: When my right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition invited me to take part in this debate, I welcomed it as I thought of it as a sort of calm oasis in the acrimony of economic discussions. It has not turned out like that. The truth is that in five days' debate, three days in another place and two here, no one will even secure the full support of his own side of the House. Normally, if one...

Orders of the Day — House of Lords Reform (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: Yes, of course I do. I am coming to that point. I do not know whether I will carry the hon. Gentleman with me—it is most unlikely—but I will do my best. Yesterday, the first three speeches after the Front Bench speeches were made by the right hon. and learned Member for Ipswich (Sir Dingle Foot), my right hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Powell) and the hon....

Orders of the Day — House of Lords Reform (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: The White Paper was agreed. What was not agreed was a different proposal which comes under the heading of "delay". It is all explained in the White Paper. These principles were agreed and were part of an agreed White Paper no less than 20 years ago. It is unquestionably a fact that there is a very strong feeling for reform among the Members of another place, and not least among the...

Orders of the Day — House of Lords Reform (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: I will deal with that when I discuss timing, although that is not my major objection in relation to timing. I wish to speak in detail on two points only, but they are the most difficult: first, the question of the cross-benchers and, secondly, the question of timing—and I will not forget the point made by my hon. Friend. Let us look at the question of the cross-benchers, remembering, if...

Orders of the Day — House of Lords Reform (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: One can use that argument about other parties as well, and it is an argument which can be used in relation to this House. I turn to the only other point I wish to put, which is on the question of timing. With great respect, I would say to the Attorney-General that he answered points with which I am not deeply concerned. My hon. Friend the Member for the Isle of Ely (Sir H. Legge-Bourke) also...

Orders of the Day — House of Lords Reform (20 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: I think it is almost certain that I shall be making the same prediction again. I am an extremely consistent man. It may be, of course, that, as the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) has suggested, his party will do better than the by-elections show, even than the 1966 election showed. Anything is possible, even that. What I do say is that that party of all parties ought to wait to see,...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Credit Restrictions (19 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in exactly the same way as before with the hire-purchase restrictions announcement, the whole of the Press is filled with stories which in the previous case turned out to be true? May I therefore ask the Basset-law question: would he answer "Yes" or "No", is an economic freeze on the way?

House of Lords Reform (19 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: On a point of some importance—the right hon. Gentleman said "the Liberals 15". Surely he means, "other Opposition parties 15".

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (5 Nov 1968)

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

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (5 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: I beg to move, at the end of the Question, to add: but humbly regret that few of the proposals in the Gracious Speech have any relevance to the declared intention of strengthening the economy. The Amendment is a statement of fact which, I should have thought, would claim general assent. It is deliberately drawn wide enough to include as many as possible of the points of view that have been...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (5 Nov 1968)

Mr Iain Macleod: Indeed, I am. I am also aware that the latest figures I have given show in that area, in which the hon. Gentleman lives and with which he is concerned, a continuing and deteriorating trend. I would have thought that he would support me in the case I am putting in this part of my speech. One of the levers of regulating demand that the Government are supposed to operate is the prices and...
