Economic Situation (26 Jul 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: If Mr. John Cotton were to make several million dollars for this country by his deal in New York, which he will probably do, does not that raise the whole standard of Britain? Is it in any way to be deplored? Is it not pure double talk to deny it?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Surtax: Reliefs for Earned Income.) (7 Jun 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I should like to take up one point—and it is not an unreasonable playing with words. The hon. Member for Gloucester (Mr. Diamond) spoke a great deal about "reasonable" expenses, and said that in terms of motor cars, as dealt with in a later Clause, it was the Government who were deciding what was reasonable. But what the Government are really doing is to decide what is legal. At no stage...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Surtax: Reliefs for Earned Income.) (7 Jun 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I wish to support my noble Friend the Member for Dorset, South (Viscount Hinchingbrooke) and my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, Langstone (Mr. Stevens). I join with them in thinking that the general principle of equity is absolutely valid for the concession to Surtax which has been granted in this year's Budget. Equally I claim that there is great expediency on the earned income side...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Television Advertisement Duty.) (15 May 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I beg to move, in page 1, line 17, after "Britain", to insert: for a period of one year".

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Television Advertisement Duty.) (15 May 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I have absolutely no interest in the matter to which my Amendment refers. I have not a television share of any kind, and from the point of view of being an advertiser or taking advertisements in any business with which I am connected, it is too small really to matter. I thought it well to make that point to begin with. I think that there are three aspects to this matter: first, the question...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Television Advertisement Duty.) (15 May 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I am very grateful to my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor for saying that he will have a good look at this matter when the Pilkington Committee has reported, but before I ask the leave of the Committee to withdraw the Amendment I should like to take up two points. One was made by the hon. Member for Woolwich (Mr. Mayhew), and it was one on which either I did not understand him or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Census Enumerators (6 Mar 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the Minister of Health (1) whether, in the coming census enumeration priority will be given in the appointment of enumerators to those in retirement, particularly to retired civil servants whose unestablished service prior to 1949 does not count in full for superannuation; (2) whether he will issue guidance to local education authorities supplementary to Administrative Memorandum No....

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Census Enumerators (6 Mar 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Is my hon. Friend aware that, for instance, the First Lord of the Admiralty in Bath has circulated to all members of his staff a notice about the employment of enumerators and offering leave on full pay to those people who care to apply? Will it be at all possible to ensure that these posts are notified at the local employment exchange so that people may hear about them? My information is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Census Enumerators (6 Mar 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: The question is how does an employment exchange find out the names and addresses of people who would apply, because those people would not normally be registered at the employment exchange for the purpose of getting jobs?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (15 Feb 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Poll tax.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Admiralty Headquarters Organisation (14 Feb 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: We are all very grateful to the Committee for this wonderful Report. If members of the public would spend more time reading the fascinating question-and-answer technique with which our Select Committees conduct their inquiries they would have a very healthy respect for this House and for the Civil Service for the way in which they handle these very important investigations. The hon. Member...

Newspaper and Magazine Industry (Royal Commission) (9 Feb 1961)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I hope that my right hon. Friend will be able to assure the House that within the terms of reference it will be possible to deal with the question of the closed shop and the highly restrictive practices on entry into the printing profession.

United Nations and Congo (21 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I shall not follow the hon. Member for Wednesbury (Mr. Stonehouse), not because there is not a certain amount with which I agree in what he said but because time is limited and possibly we may develop a fresh approach. My approach starts with the conception that not all questions have a solution. There are certain problems which are insoluble and there are a lot of problems in which the...

United Nations and Congo (21 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: The right hon. Member said in effect that a great deal of action should be taken in the Congo. My hon. Friend the Member for Lancaster (Mr. Berkeley) said that Mr. Lumumba should be released. Which is the exact authority, which is in effect the Government, which would take those actions in the Congo about which the right hon. Gentleman has spoken? I do not understand that.

United Nations and Congo (21 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Who is Parliament and is it ever a Government?

United Nations and Congo (21 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Is it not really out of order to suggest that a request should be made to the Belgian Government about something that is clearly the responsibility of the Congo Government—[Interruption.] It is the responsibility of the Congo Government if anybody resident in that area is doing anything that is illegal or improper. The frustration of this debate comes from...

Orders of the Day — Printer's Imprint Bill (9 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: We all ought to congratulate both North and South on coming together in this way—my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham, North (Mr. Chataway) upon introducing the Bill and upon the very clear way in which he has dealt with it, and the hon. Member for Bristol, South (Mr. Wilkins) for the welcome which he gave to it; because, if I may say so, I think that it was not so much that he was...

Orders of the Day — Printer's Imprint Bill (9 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I am sure that I am speaking on behalf of both sides of the printing industry. For once I may be allowed to speak as someone interested in a printing concern. We have here a situation in which from both the craftsmen's point of view and the master craftsmen's point of view everybody is anxious to be proud of their work and to put their imprint upon it. The extent to which imprints are put in...

Orders of the Day — Printer's Imprint Bill (9 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Would not my hon. Friend agree that paragraphs (a) and (b) in subsection (1) of Clause 1 deal with what is reproduced and that it is Clause 1 (3) which deals with how it is reproduced? Would not he also agree that the only effect of Clause 1 (3) is to bring all printing processes into the position where there is no longer doubt as to whether the offset is an impression or by letterpress?

Orders of the Day — Printer's Imprint Bill (9 Dec 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: If it were a sentence which was not of a conventional kind in general, it would come under paragraph (a) as well as under paragraph (b).
