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

Sir Isaac Pitman: My hon. and learned Friend referred to the caption underneath the design.

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (4 Nov 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I am very glad to follow the hon. Member for Woolwich East (Mr. Mayhew), because I agree with him on two points—first of all, on his attitude towards the Polaris. It seems to me that any sensible person must agree with him that, until we have organised a better form of security for our people and the people of the world, we cannot possibly surrender or do without any of the weapons which...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (4 Nov 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Of course we can do it, but the point is that we would pay so much less in taxation if we were paying it to a world organisation. Let us not forget that the cost of the police giving us security is very much less, and the security provided is very much more than in the days either of the heptarchy, when we had seven kingdoms, or in the days when we had a whole lot of barons with their own...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (4 Nov 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Is it not possible that Mr. Khrushchev's objection is really to the constitution of the United Nations itself and to the fact that the Secretary-General has to do what he is told by a number of nations who are hostile to the East? It is not so much personal as constitutional.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Resale Price Maintenance (19 Jul 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the President of the Board of Trade why the covering letter accompanying the questionnaire issued by him in connection with the fact-finding inquiry into resale price maintenance states that the Board is already fully aware of the general arguments for and against resale price maintenance, when specific questions contained in the questionnaire ask manufacturers, wholesalers, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Resale Price Maintenance (19 Jul 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Is my hon. Friend aware that in respect of particular items the retail trade is left in great doubt, because his columnar treatment allows of four possibilities whereas, in fact, there is a fifth possibility—that the prices are neither fixed nor suggested? Therefore, leaving it blank gives room for doubt, because either the goods are not supplied or, if they are supplied, their price is...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 26. — (Cancellation of Tax Advantages from Certain Trans- Actions in Securities.) (25 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I fully support the hon. Member for Gloucester (Mr. Diamond) when he says that a reserve is a liability and that one cannot get away from that. I think that he is a good deal better than the hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton), who I should like to see adopt a bit more of the "Lot" attitude. His attitude is that there is not one just man in the City and therefore the whole of this...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 26. — (Cancellation of Tax Advantages from Certain Trans- Actions in Securities.) (25 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I am sorry if I misjudged the hon. Member, but that is the way in which I interpreted the early part of his speech. I agree with the Attorney-General that paragraphs (a) and (b) are narrow. What I should like to know is how broad is paragraph (c). However, before I leave paragraphs (a) and (b), I want to point out that there are, even within the class of person exempt from tax, quite normal...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 26. — (Cancellation of Tax Advantages from Certain Trans- Actions in Securities.) (25 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I was asking my right hon. and learned Friend quite how that would happen. I admit that I am not a lawyer and cannot easily understand these matters. It seems clear to me, however, that any law which allows the Inland Revenue to act in effect as a kind of Star Chamber—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."] The Solicitor-General recently mentioned the case of the 1951 Act in respect of Profits Tax. How does...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 26. — (Cancellation of Tax Advantages from Certain Trans- Actions in Securities.) (25 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Perhaps my right hon. and learned Friend would allow me to interrupt him at this point, because I do not think he has appreciated the point. In both his explanation and the subsection where the word "realisation "is mentioned as a "distribution" it is implicit—and it is expressed in the subsection—that if a private company has considerable reserves—in other words, if it is big with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 26. — (Cancellation of Tax Advantages from Certain Trans- Actions in Securities.) (25 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: The hon. Member for Gloucester (Mr. Diamond) raised a point which my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General said was a technical one which he would take up—namely, in Subsection (2) as amended, which refers to … the reserves, or other assets My right hon. and learned Friend said he would have a look at the word "other". He should also have a look at whether we should perhaps...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Future (18 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the Postmaster-General when he expects to announce the formation and terms of reference of the committee on the future of broadcasting.

Foreign Affairs (12 May 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I will not greatly follow the remarks of the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond), the Leader of the Liberal Party, because I agreed with so much of what he said. But there is a point about the timing of the control mechanism in relation to disarmament which I think important and which I should like to tie up with what the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Labour Party said...

Burnham Committee (National Association of Schoolmasters) (14 Apr 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: It has publicly said that it has not dropped its opposition to equal pay.

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas), particularly when he has declared himself to be, as I think he ought to be, in complete agreement with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education. I have listened and have found no reason for any suggestion of there being a party division or party strife on this matter. If I may highlight what the hon....

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I say that the whole emphasis or onus changes with the advent of puberty from compulsion upon the parent to the persuasion of the child. Whatever one may say, the schools must make themselves so attractive and so worth while to adolescents at that age that the student will really wish to stay on at school. Let hon. Members really confess that the time which they really enjoyed during their...

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: No doubt there is a good deal of stage army about it, but as far as I know those are the figures after "the shakedown" has taken place. Anyone, like the hon. Member, who knows what happens in evening classes on enrolment night and the number of people who are enrolled realises that it would be ridiculous to quote figures in respect of merely the enrolment night. A certain time is allowed to...

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: In those circumstances, I would certainly support it, but until we have gone through the intermediate stage my belief is that it has not yet been proved that that is the right course for the people of whom I was speaking.

Education (Report of the Central Advisory Council) (21 Mar 1960)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I do not rule it out.
