Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (10 Feb 1966)

Mr George Pargiter: What will be the position of a person who refuses to take a breathalyser test, but elects to go straight away to the police station? Will he be allowed to do so?

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (10 Feb 1966)

Mr George Pargiter: It is probably true that all laws are restrictive. To some extent, all laws interfere with the liberty of the subject, and the more complicated society becomes, the more and more laws are passed which become more and more restrictive of the liberty of the individual. We must accept that as something that is bound to happen in modern society. Our concern in Parliament is to see that what is...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Unit Trusts for Exempt Unit Holders.) ( 5 Jul 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: Before my hon. and learned Friend sits down, will he say whether this applies equally to long and short-term gains?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Unit Trusts for Exempt Unit Holders.) ( 5 Jul 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: While this new Clause goes some way to meeting the case which was put in Committee and subsequently discussed at official level it does not really go as far as one might have hoped it would. As I see it now, in regard to the Local Authorities Mutual Investment Trust, which is the body with which we were particularly concerned in Committee, the position, prior to local authorities themselves...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Unit Trusts for Exempt Unit Holders.) ( 5 Jul 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: Will my right hon. Friend say a few words on the question of the short-term aspects of the matter? He referred to the fact that in 1962 L.A.M.I.T. had been paying it and that the position had not altered. But local authorities paid it from 1962, and the position has altered for them. Logically, therefore, it should also alter for the Local Authorities' Mutual Investment Trust. Will my right...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 34. — (Unit Trusts and Investment Trusts.) (31 May 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: I beg to move Amendment No. 370, in page 40, line 28, at the end to add: (3) Any chargeable gains whether short or long-term arising from the sale of investments out of funds established under a scheme for the collective investment of local authority moneys (including superannuation fund moneys) approved by the Treasury under section 11 of the Trustees Investments Act, 1961, shall be...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 34. — (Unit Trusts and Investment Trusts.) (31 May 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: The Amendment does not ask for total exemption. It asks for exemption to the same extent that local authorities would be exempt in respect of superannuation funds—in which case about 95 per cent. are regarded as being approved for the purpose of exemption and about 5 per cent., which deal largely with lump sum payments, are not. I am not claiming that the trust should be in any more...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 34. — (Unit Trusts and Investment Trusts.) (31 May 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: I think that my hon. Friend's explanation, to say the least, went a long way round to get to the kernel of the matter, which is that where a local authority is exempt from taxation on the investment of its own funds individually, collectively local authorities should be exempt in precisely the same way, no more and no less. I have not asked that the 5 per cent. which is not approved for...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 34. — (Unit Trusts and Investment Trusts.) (31 May 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: With the exception of approximately 5 per cent., to which I have referred, which we recognise is subject to tax. I am not asking that that should be exempted from tax.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 34. — (Unit Trusts and Investment Trusts.) (31 May 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: Having listened carefully to the reply of my hon. Friend the Chief Secretary I am bound to tell him that

Orders of the Day — Rates ( 5 May 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: I am glad to have the opportunity to comment on the speech of the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock), particularly on the subject of the increased rate at Yiewsley and West Drayton, the 47 per cent. increase which was also mentioned by the right hon. Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Boyd-Carpenter), presumably allegedly due to its coming into Socialist control. Yiewsley and West ...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 8 Apr 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: It is a long time since I had the pleasure of immediately following a maiden speech and having the opportunity to congratulate an hon. Member, as I now congratulate the hon. Member for Leyton (Mr. Buxton) on his speech. When he rose, I wondered what sort of non-controversial speech one could make on a Budget. I admired the subject he chose, medieval Leyton, leading up to old people, and so...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 8 Apr 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: I think that it will be found that the total numbers will be no greater than on previous occasions. I commend to the hon. Gentleman the final figures of emigration compared with those for when his party was in power. The challenge we make is to ask hon. Members opposite what they would do if there were not an alteration of taxation. What would they do without as an alternative to what the...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation ( 8 Apr 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: The right hon. Gentleman said that they would be doing this rather than attending to the efficiency of their industries. He used those words and the hon. Member can read them. If half the brains and intelligence employed in the City and elsewhere in looking for loopholes in the taxation system were applied to securing a more efficient economy, we would be in a far better position. This is...

Bill Presented: New Clause. — (Commencement.) ( 2 Mar 1965)

Mr George Pargiter: On a point of order. May I ask your Ruling, Mr. Speaker, on whether the hon. Member's remarks should be addressed to the Clause which we are discussing or to the principles of the Bill?

Local Authorities, England and Wales (General Grant) (15 Dec 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: I approach these matters with rather mixed feelings. I will deal, first, with the Increase Order and in doing so I hope that it will be realised that the local authority associations are disappointed that the 1963–64 figure has not been further adjusted by the inclusion of about £900,000 of additional expenditure which would undoubtedly have ranked for increased grant. It is suggested...

Local Authorities, England and Wales (General Grant) (15 Dec 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: I find when I look at my internal money and my external money that there is not much difference between them when it comes to paying. I have either got it or not got it, and whether I can play about with it by means of credits or debits at some stage makes no difference to the fact that I have to produce the cash when it is required. I cannot see any material difference between the two. We...

Local Authorities, England and Wales (General Grant) (15 Dec 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that the White Paper which was published at the time when the general grant was instituted said that the Treasury was already bearing too much of a burden vis-à-vis the local authorities, and the intention was to shift the burden in such a way that it bore less heavily on the Treasury. The fact that they were paying more than half the total at that time was...

Orders of the Day — Remuneration of Teachers Bill (20 Nov 1964)

Mr George Pargiter: I also would like to give a general welcome to the Bill, but first I should like to add my congratulations to my hon. Friend the Member for Cleveland (Mr. Tinn) on his maiden speech. I appreciate the strain which he was under in not being controversial on matters raised from the Front Bench opposite which were very controversial and were open to a good deal of comment. I thought that the hon....
