Orders of the Day — Western Europe (18 Nov 1954)

Mr Donald Wade: I have listened with great interest to every speaker who has taken part in this debate, and by that I mean since yesterday and not since 3.30 p.m. today. In speaking in approval of the ratification of these Agreements on behalf of my Liberal colleagues and myself—in due course we shall vote for them—I do not wish to take up a lot of time repeating arguments already put forward both...

Orders of the Day — Western Europe (18 Nov 1954)

Mr Donald Wade: That would be a difficult question to answer. The forces are not there to overthrow a Government. This is a purely hypothetical question, and I hope it will always remain so, but since we are dealing with a period of 44 years—which is a long period—this is a possibility which we should at least consider, and after having considered it, we should try to ensure that the event does not...

Gentleman is not prepared to encourage the introduction of profit-sharing schemes by fiscal policy, can he give an assurance that firms willing and anxious to introduce either profit-sharing or ownership-sharing involving the transfer of shares to employees will not be deterred from doing so by the policy pursued by the Inland Revenue or by decisions of the Capital Issues...

Oral Answers to Questions — Commonwealth Relations: Bechuanaland, Basutoland, and Swaziland (27 Jan 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the Minister not agree that the development policy for the Protectorates and further north only really helps to counteract the very serious consequences which may follow from more illiberal policies elsewhere?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (27 Jan 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: On the subject of tyres, is the Minister aware that the case which received considerable publicity recently is not an exceptional one, and that I can give him details of a number of similar cases if he wishes? In view of the extreme form of restraint and interference with retail trading in the cases which are brought to light, can he do anything to speed up the report so that the House may be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (27 Jan 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Would the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to clarify his view on this point? Without wishing to belittle the conscientious work done by the Commission, may I ask whether he is satisfied that the procedure under the Act of 1948 is adequate? If not, has the right hon. Gentleman any alternative at all to propose to waiting for reports from the Commission?

Orders of the Day — Estimates (Select Committee) (31 Jan 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: On many issues that come before the House—indeed, I think on the majority—I find myself in disagreement with the hon. Members for Nelson and Colne (Mr. S. Silverman) and for Lady-wood (Mr. Yates), but that is no reason for my opposing this Amendment. I regard it as all the more important that I should try to consider this Amendment as fairly and as impartially as I can. I feel that...

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: I welcome the opportunity this debate has given for discussing a subject which has caused very great uneasiness in the public mind. It is a serious debate, and I do not wish to appear to spoil it by making any cheap remarks. After hearing the speech of the right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson), however, I am tempted to add that the House has had the experience of listening to Satan...

Mr Donald Wade: —and we have condemned both the last Administration and the present one. I have no doubt that we shall continue to do so.

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: It was the intention of my Liberal colleagues and myself—unless certain assurances were given at the close of the debate—to vote with the devil against sin, but after hearing the hesitations of the right hon. Member for Huyton upon the subject of the Report upon the calico printers, I think that my colleagues and I would find it very difficult to go into the same Lobby as the Opposition.
