Orders of the Day — Counter-Inflation Bill: Duration and Reactivation of Part Ii (28 Feb 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Will my right hon. Friend tell us what form the debate on the code will take? Will it be on a motion to take note of the code? If the House voted against the motion, would the result be that the Government's prices and incomes policy would be in suspense until such time as the code was again submitted to the House and approved?

Price and Pay Code (5 Mar 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I listened with great interest to my hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mr. David Mitchell). I shall be echoing a great deal of what he said. The Counter-Inflation Bill, to which we gave a Third Reading last week, provides the machinery for the Government's counter-inflationary policy; but it is purely machinery and it requires a policy to implement it. That policy is contained in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Dams and Reservoirs (Design) (7 Mar 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has had about the adequacy of the regulations concerning the design of dams and reservoirs; and what action his Department is taking as a result.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Dams and Reservoirs (Design) (7 Mar 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that reply. Is he satisfied with the general level of third party insurance against dam disasters? If not, will he bring forward legislation to provide for this?

Orders of the Day — Building Societies (Interest Rates) (9 Apr 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I listened with interest to the remarks of the hon. Member for Cornwall, North (Mr. Pardoe) about a housing allowance. No doubt the Select Committee on tax credits of which we are both members will be considering that. I hope that he will forgive me if I do not follow him on that point. I must begin by declaring an interest in housing development. The £15 million bridging grant flows,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 4 (10 Apr 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I should like to take up what was said by the hon. Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalyell) about the haste with which VAT was introduced. It was first announced in the 1971 Budget. There followed a full year of discussion on a Green Paper, and then the matter was debated at great length in a Standing Committee on which the hon. Gentleman was a member, as were many who are present in the Chamber...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 4 (10 Apr 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: The hon. Gentleman said that purchase tax and SET do not affect the ordinary shopper. The total purchase tax and SET charged on food alone was £100 million. If he thinks that sum is insignificant, I am certain that the British public do not.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 4 (10 Apr 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: The hon. Gentleman is misquoting me if he is suggesting that I said VAT would be imposed on food. If he reads HANSARD carefully he will find that I suggested there would be no increase in coverage or rate. I said specifically that without any increase in rate the revenue would increase year by year.

Clause 10: Surtax Rates for 1972–73 (11 Apr 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Would my hon. and learned Friend not agree that, with the widely publicised plans of the Labour Party for the public ownership of land, property enjoys even less security than capital?

Orders of the Day — Water Bill: Clause 3 (1 May 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Cirencester and Tewkesbury (Mr. Ridley), I want to raise the question of representation on the Thames Water Authority. A large part of North-West Kent, most of which lies in my constituency, has been included in the London-based Thames Water Authority with the result that the 150,000 people living in that area will have no elected representation on the...

Clause 1: Labour-Only Sub-Contracting Bill (18 May 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I have listened with interest to the hon. Member for Eccles (Mr. Carter-Jones) and I shall touch on one or two points which he raised. First, I declare my interest in the construction industry as a director of a building company. While I cannot compete with the 40 years that my hon. Friend the Member for Stockport, North (Mr. Idris Owen) has spent in the industry, I have nevertheless spent...

New Schedule: Government Trading Funds Bill (19 Jun 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Cirencester and Tewkesbury (Mr. Ridley) I welcome the placing of some of these State activities on a commercial basis. I certainly think that there might be scope for extending the practice. I listened with great interest to what my hon. Friend said about financial incentives. He mentioned the Royal Dockyards. If I have read my naval history correctly, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Prices (28 Jun 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Will my right hon. Friend say what proportion of the retirement pension is now spent on food compared with the situation three years ago?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministerial Broadcast (3 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: If in his next ministerial broadcast my right hon. Friend touches on exports, he may care to point out that in 1970 nearly one-quarter of our visible exports were contributed by the 25 leading manufacturing companies. Ought we not to congratulate the Leader of the Opposition on continuing to disown his party's proposals for nationalising such companies?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Income Tax (5 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: Surely what matters is not the amount of tax collected but the rate of taxation? Is it not a remarkable coincidence that under Labour Governments tax rates rise and under Conservative Government they fall?

New Clause 9: Sub-Contractors in Construction Industry (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: We debated the "lump" at length on the Second Reading of the Labour-Only Sub-Contracting Bill introduced by the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heller). However, I do not wish to rehearse the arguments that were employed on that occasion. I begin by declaring an interest in the construction industry. The term "the lump" is applied to two different types of activity—labour-only...

New Clause 9: Sub-Contractors in Construction Industry (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: My hon. Friend the Minister of State did not refer to the—

New Clause 9: Sub-Contractors in Construction Industry (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: By leave of the House, may I—

New Clause 20: Share Option and Share Incentive Schemes (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The object of the clause is to make it possible to base share incentive schemes on the shares of unquoted subsidiary companies. The matter was discussed at length in the Committee consideration of last year's Finance Act and was touched on again this year. In the present situation, in which it is not possible to base incentive schemes on...

New Clause 20: Share Option and Share Incentive Schemes (10 Jul 1973)

Mr Peter Trew: I listened with interest to the argument put forward by my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary. I am sorry that he does not feel able to accept the clause, but I am at least pleased that he accepts the need for something to be done. He has given a fairly firm undertaking that he will try to do something next year. I endorse what was said by my hon. Friend the Member for Cirencester and...
