Clause 12 (10 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: rose—

Clause 12 (10 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I will follow your ruling, Mr. Gurden. One reason why the attack has failed to materialise is that, as a result of the long consultation period, my right hon. Friend has managed to eliminate many of the possible objections to the VAT. Consequently, the Labour Party is less and less concentrating on the proposals as they stand and more and more expressing its fears as to what might happen in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Relief for Payment of Interest (17 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Will the hon. Gentleman deal with the situation in which shares depreciate in value?

Orders of the Day — THAMES BARRIER AND FLOOD PREVENTION BILL (By Order) (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: On the question of the 80 per cent. grant to downstream authorities, my hon. Friend will know that the downstream flood defences have to be raised for two reasons, namely, the reflected wave effect of the barrier and changing tidal conditions. Does the 80 per cent. grant apply only to that part of the raising of flood defences attributable to the Thames flood barrier or does it also apply to...

Orders of the Day — THAMES BARRIER AND FLOOD PREVENTION BILL (By Order) (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I would like to say a little more about the downstream flood defences to which my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary referred. I accept entirely the great risk to which London is exposed and the absolute necessity for getting on with the Thames flood barrier as quickly as possible. The Government and the Greater London Council are to be congratulated on the speed at which they are...

Orders of the Day — THAMES BARRIER AND FLOOD PREVENTION BILL (By Order) (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful for that information. The point which I made earlier when suggesting that the matter still has to be resolved and is one of great complexity which could involve protracted negotiations is still valid. This is one reason why there is still considerable concern in downstream areas on the question of whether the flood defences will be completed before the Thames flood barrier is in...

Orders of the Day — THAMES BARRIER AND FLOOD PREVENTION BILL (By Order) (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: If I have understood my hon. Friend correctly, along the length of the wall there will be attracted grant worth 80 per cent. or 100 per cent. This is bound to make negotiations complicated because of the need to decide which portion qualifies for which rate of grant.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Paper Industry (26 Jun 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Is my right hon. Friend aware that those of us who met our right hon. Friend the Minister for Industrial Development recently to discuss these problems were greatly encouraged to learn about the Government's positive line in the EEC negotiations on matters affecting the industry? On the domestic front, what consideration has my right hon. Friend been able to give to the industry's fuel oil costs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Land and House Prices (5 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Does my right hon. Friend agree that if the Labour Government had maintained the level of private housing starts which they inherited there would now be 300,000 more private homes and considerably less pressure on the housing market?

Clause 7: Time of Supply (11 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: As my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary was kind enough to refer to me, I should like to say that the Amendments meet substantially all the points I made in Standing Committee and that I am most grateful to him.

Schedule 4: 'group 14 — Fees in Connection with Housing. &C. (11 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I beg to move Amendment No. 49 in Page 110, line 6, leave out 'does not include any work of repair or maintenance and insert 'includes repair or maintenance to churches and listed buildings but does not include any other work of repair or maintenance'. This Amendment would have the effect of zero-rating repair or maintenance carried out on churches or listed buildings. Before referring...

Schedule 4: 'group 14 — Fees in Connection with Housing. &C. (11 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I am in no doubt that my hon. Friend was referring to the total tax revenue on repair and maintenance, but has he managed to estimate the revenue from VAT on churches and listed buildings?

Schedule 4: 'group 14 — Fees in Connection with Housing. &C. (11 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I, too, am disappointed that my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary has not accepted the Amendment. He has stressed that there are technical difficulties, and there is a certain amount of truth in that. He may be right in saying that the Amendment is premature. But we extracted from him, although I agree that it came slowly, a statement of his concern. We now have on record for the first time...

Clause 30: Accounting for and Payment of Tax (12 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: As one of those who in Committee referred to the question of hardship I am grateful to my hon. Friend for the lengths to which he has gone to meet the case. If in practice he finds that tribunals become overloaded, I hope that he will not relent on the hardships provisions but will increase the number of tribunals.

Clause 42: Adjustment of Contracts on Changes in Tax (12 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I beg to move Amendment No. 202, in page 31, line 3, after 'supplied' insert: 'or where a contract for the letting of goods on hire is entered into and during the period of hire,'. The intention of this technical Amendment is to extend that scope of the Clause to include contracts for hiring. As drafted, the Clause appears to include only contracts for the supply of goods or services. The...

Clause 42: Adjustment of Contracts on Changes in Tax (12 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Just so as to make the matter quite clear, I understand that the regulations to which my hon. Friend the Minister of State refers are covered by Clause 7(4). I see that my hon. Friend agrees, and in view of his explanation I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I wish to give notice in connection with Amendment No. 1177. In the event of this Amendment not being accepted by the Government, it will be my wish to ask for a separate vote.

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I agree with a great deal of the speech made by the hon. Member for Swindon (Mr. David Stoddart). He put the human side of the argument very well indeed, as distinct from the management consultant side of the argument which was put by my hon. Friend the Member for Aylesbury (Mr. Raison). I wish to speak principally about Amendment No. 1177, and if the Amendment is not accepted by the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: If my hon. Friend the Member for Hove (Mr. Maddan) reads those two columns of the speech, probably he will understand that the impression left in the minds of those hon. Members who served on the Committee was that, with reasonable qualifications, the Government would be tabling an Amendment along these lines on Report. The Government have tabled no Amendment. Therefore one wonders in what...

Orders of the Day — Clause 200 (20 Jul 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: That is perfectly true. As I was saying, I argued strongly in Committee that the agency provisions were not appropriate for the library function. In this country, there are a number of outstanding local libraries which have been built up over the years by the enthusiasm and initiative of local people. They have been very much integrated into the life of the community. Many of them have...
