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?

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.

Clause 12 (10 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: In the Budget debate the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition committed his party to an all-out attack on value added tax. The empty benches opposite are an eloquent testimony to the extent to which that attack has failed to materialise.

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 (9 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: If the hon. Gentleman looks at Schedule 4, Group 7, he will see that zero-rating relates to items of builder's hardware… of a kind ordinarily installed by builders as fixtures". Fitted carpets are not ordinarily installed by builders as fixtures.

Clause 9: Rate of Tax (9 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Any Amendment proposed by the party opposite which has the effect of reducing taxation is one which we ought to welcome—and examine. The hon. Member for Birmingham, All Saints (Mr. Brian Walden) gave an innocuous reason for introducing the Amendment. He said that it was to reduce the freedom of action of the Government to increase the rate of VAT in the future. In effect, the hon....

Clause 9: Rate of Tax (9 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: But the Amendment reduces the band within which my right hon. Friend can act in a way equivalent to reducing revenue by £360 million. However, the hon. Gentleman gave a clue about the way in which he would like to see the additional revenue made up. He disapproved of the fact that we on this side wanted to shift the burden of taxation from earning to spending. In that, of course, he...

Orders of the Day — Housing Finance Bill [Third Allotted Day] (8 May 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the cost to the owner-occupier of maintaining, repairing and insuring his house increases yearly, whereas the council tenant has no responsibility for these elements? [An HON. MEMBER: "He has."] If an owner-occupier falls ill or loses his job, he has no recourse to a rebate as the council tenant has.

Land and Houses (Prices) (27 Apr 1972)

Mr Peter Trew: I agree entirely with the hon. Member for Gloucestershire, West (Mr. Loughlin)when he says that we want to create conditions in which more people can buy their homes, but I disagree with his methods. To introduce more controls would defeat his very object. To my mind what we want to do is restore a normal market and bring supply and demand back into equilibrium. At this moment it is no secret...
