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

Mr Peter Trew: My right hon. Friend is right to say that this matter could be raised until 1st April, 1974, and that he could exercise his discretion in the case of an appeal. I was about to come to that. Under my Amendment, there is the same provision to settle the matter by 1st April, 1974. But the big difference is that under the Amendment, once the Secretary of State had decided to grant library powers,...

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

Mr Peter Trew: What my right hon. Friend is saying is that the Secretary of State would exercise the power if he were convinced that the library service was being improved. If that is so, what has he got to lose by accepting the Amendment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Construction Industry (1 Aug 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to extend the Employment Transfer Scheme, with particular reference to the construction industry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Construction Industry (1 Aug 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I appreciate the great value of retraining particularly in conjunction with the announcement made this afternoon. Is my hon. Friend satisfied that enough is being done to halt the serious decline of recruitment of apprentices into the industry?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Local Government Act (Guidance Circulars) (18 Oct 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Will my right hon. Friend make sure that there are adequate safeguards to ensure that county councils honour their agreements under agency arrangements in future years?

Industry (North-West Kent) (6 Nov 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I welcome this opportunity of raising the question of industrial decline in north-west Kent. The north-west Kent area comprises the parliamentary constituencies of Dartford, which I have the honour to represent, and Gravesend. I am pleased to see my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesend (Mr. Roger White) in his place tonight. He will, no doubt, be seeking to catch your eye later in the...

Orders of the Day — Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Bill: Duration of Section 2 (14 Nov 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I disagree with the hon. Member for Bradford, South (Mr. Torney) when he says that the Government's present measures do not have the overwhelming support of the British public. On 15th August, last year, a Republican President of the United States of America, dedicated to private enterprise and to the principles of the free market, introduced a similar measure. He did so with the overwhelming...

Orders of the Day — Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Bill: Power to Obtain Information (16 Nov 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I should like to speak in support of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Dover (Mr. Peter Rees) who, in raising this matter, has done a service to the Committee. Clause 4(1), which would be affected by the amendments, is reminiscent of the enforcement provisions of the VAT legislation, which caused great concern throughout the whole of the legal profession, and which the Government...

Orders of the Day — Land Compensation Bill (27 Nov 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: It is not clear from the Bill whether it is intended that the sound insulation provision should apply to future or existing roads. Can my right hon. and learned Friend help?

Orders of the Day — Value Added Tax (5 Dec 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I was in Brussels on the day of that strike, and it is important to make the point that the strike was not only concerned with value added tax but also the social security system. The aspect of VAT which upset them was that the Government should ask for one month's VAT in advance. The British system will allow VAT three months in arrears.

Orders of the Day — Value Added Tax (5 Dec 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I want to comment on one point raised by the hon. Member for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. Duffy). While I appreciate that he voiced his genuine concern for the problems of the small shopkeeper, if any shopkeepers known to him are thinking that they may go out of business because of VAT I can only suggest that it is because they cannot have grasped fully what is required. The object of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Pensioners (12 Dec 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Can my right hon. Friend recall whether any bonus was paid to pensioners by the previous Labour Government on the introduction of SET, which, unlike VAT, entered into the cost of all foods?

Non-Metropolitan Districts (21 Dec 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: The points that I want to mention briefly are procedural and arise from the fact that the Boundary Commission in its final recommendations affecting my constituency has departed from its draft proposals of April this year. The original proposals provided that the whole of the Dartford rural district should be included in Kent District No. 1 based on Dartford, but the final recommendations...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Foreign Lorries (Regulation) (24 Jan 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why he will not take steps to require the carrying of reflector plates by foreign lorries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Foreign Lorries (Regulation) (24 Jan 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Is my right hon. Friend aware that in many cases such reflectors as are carried by foreign lorries in accordance with their own national regulations are derisory in size compared with the excellent and conspicuous reflector plates carried by British lorries? If it is unacceptable for people to crash into the backs of British lorries, it must be equally unacceptable for people to crash into...

Orders of the Day — Housing (6 Feb 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: The hon. Member for Manchester, Ardwick (Mr. Kaufman) is right to draw attention to the problem of housing in Manchester and the other conurbations, but he is wrong to say that his party has a monopoly of concern for human problems. What he dismisses as a book-keeping or a ledger approach to housing—by which I presume he means the Housing Finance Act—is an attempt to channel resources to...

Orders of the Day — Housing (6 Feb 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I will not say such schemes could not be introduced but sometimes they have altogether unexpected side-effects. On the question of reducing demand generally, there are certainly ways in which we can tone down the demand for housing which would have an effect of stabilising or lowering prices. But as a consequence of any such measure builders would be led to cut back their building plans which...

Orders of the Day — Value Added Tax (Children's Clothing) (14 Feb 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: That figure does not include shoes. It is purely in respect of children's clothing.

Orders of the Day — Value Added Tax (Children's Clothing) (14 Feb 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Mr. Trew rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Value Added Tax (22 Feb 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: In view of the fact that even the right hon. Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey) has admitted that a 10 per cent. VAT will do little to the cost of living when it replaces purchase tax and selective employment tax, will my hon. Friend resist blandishments to lower the rate, bearing in mind that because of the relief on the necessities of life a reduction will be of greater relative advantage...
