Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 12. — (Income Tax for 1925–26.) (15 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: In two sentences more I shall have finished. In Czechoslovakia, Poland and Italy they have got rid of their burden of debt, partly by means of the capital levy. We have done none of these things. On the contrary, we have deflated our currency, and the burden of debt and interest is not only as great as, but greater than when the War came to an end. In consequence of that we have got this...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: CLAUSE 16. (Claims for exemption in respect of income of charities and for repayment of tax in respect of interest paid to banks, and right of appeal in connection therewith. (15 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: There is just one point on this Clause that I am not quite certain about, and that is as to the significance of Sub-section (1, b) of the Clause. I put a question to the Chancellor a few days ago relating to a form of evasion of tax practised by certain people through single premium insurance. The method of procedure of these people is as follows:—They effect an insurance by means of a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 19. — (Amended rates of estate duty.) (15 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I must really express my amazement at the suggestion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer that he will accept this Amendment. The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr. Lloyd George) has put the case very strongly from the point of general equity as between owners of different classes of property, but I would venture to suggest to the Chancellor of the Exchequer that he...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, in page 18, line 18, column 2, to leave out "1s. 0d.," and to insert instead thereof "3d." This is the first of a series of Amendments from this side of the Committee put forward with the object of reducing the Customs duties on silk. At this stage of the Bill it is not possible for us to ask for the abolition of these duties, but it is possible, as this Amendment proposes to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Do I understand from the Chancellor of the Exchequer that it applies in both columns or only applies in the first column.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I understand that the Chancellor does not propose to change the word value of the article in the second column of this Schedule. I suggest that if he is going to change it in the first column he should change it in the second, otherwise he will get a very considerable duty, and a very improper duty.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The Chancellor gave us £4 as the value of the component parts and £40 as the value of the finished article. The silk may be, say, £2. Therefore if you are going to charge 33⅓ per cent. on the finished article you would be charging £13. Surely he does not propose on a £2 article to put a tax of £13?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: On a previous paragraph the Chancellor challenged my accuracy as to a statement I was making. We are now on the second paragraph. Let me put a small point on this occasion. The Chancellor said that the effect of his changes was slightly to reduce the duty. Is that the case of an article the component parts of which are worth £5 and the value of the whole article is worth—I will put the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The question is a very simple one, but after all it is a very serious matter. It really ought to be faced. [Interruption.] I will start again. Take a certain article, the component parts of which are worth £5 and the finished article worth £10. The value of the silk in that article is anything from 5s. to 10s. If we leave the paragraph as it stands here the amount of silk in that article...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (17 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I will not argue the question of the lucidity of the statement. It is perfectly clear that the actual tax would double in each individual case. The change the Chancellor is making will increase and in no case reduce the amount of the tax.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Provisions as to abatement of Income Tax on company's profits.) (22 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Is that for a full year, or for the current year?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Second Schedule. (23 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, in page 22, line 8, column 2, to leave out the word "value," and to insert instead thereof the words "aggregate of the values of all the components." This proposal arises out of the Amendment which was carried during the Committee stage and was proposed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. This is my first and probably my only attempt to endeavour to obtain a scientific tariff....

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Sikar (Land Tax). (29 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 5. asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can now state whether there has recently been an increase of 25 per cent. in the land tax levied on the peasants in the sub-State of Sikar; whether a number of them on protesting were arrested and punished, and what was the nature of the punishment inflicted on them; whether 18 peasants who had assembled on 5th March for the purposes...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I venture to think the Minister of Health does not fully realise the very serious character of his opposition to this Amendment, or the large amount of feeling there will be in the country if he persists in resisting the claims of a woman to any benefit except the old age pension as a return for her contribution. Three distinct benefits are conferred by this Bill. First of all, there is the...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I think we are entitled to ask the hon. Gentleman what is the value of the old age pension for the woman who enters at the age of 16. If she enters at 16, how much is it worth a week?

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: What the Bill does is this: If the woman is insured, and goes on being insured during her marriage, and her husband dies first, it is quite true when she subsequently dies her orphan children will get benefit, but the point to which I referred was, where a woman is insured and her husband is not insured, and she dies first. Then if subsequently her husband dies, the orphans will not get any...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Yes. it was.

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I should like to ask the Minister how he reconciles the speech he made at the beginning with the speech he made at the end? In his speech at the beginning, he said that the woman's contribution was solely for the old age pension that she would get, and that the benefit for widows and orphans depended on the man's contribution. In the later speech he took exactly the opposite line. On which...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am very glad that the Minister has seen his way to meet us in this matter and that he has recognised—as some of us have felt very keenly—the very regrettable form in which this proposal appeared in the Bill. The fact that he has not gone all the way that I proposed in my Amendment, I take to be only a matter of time. I hope that this is an instalment, and, if not this year, I hope in a...
