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.

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,...

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?

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...

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?

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...

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—

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...

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...

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 — 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?

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...

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?
