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 — 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...

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...

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?

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?

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...

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?

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.

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...

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?
