Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: It is only fair to point out that many of the restrictive practices which have been referred to tonight either existed or could have been foreseen when the Act of 1948 was placed on the Statute Book. This problem was foreseen and very fully discussed by a Liberal committee under the chairmanship of Sir Arthur Comyns Carr, which made its report in June, 1945. The failure of the. Government to...

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: The "Huddersfield Examiner" has throughout taken a very strong and independent line upon the subject of monopolies. I invite the hon. Member to read the leading article to which I have referred.

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: There is no doubt that if the Monopolies Act of 1948 had been more forthright, or if the request to carry out a general inquiry had been made to the Monopolies Commission earlier than December, 1952, the House would have been in a better position today to decide what action should be taken upon the subject of price maintenance agreements and their enforcement.

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: The right hon. Gentleman has made two points. One was in favour of general legislative reference, and with that, if I may, I shall deal in a moment. I agree with his second point. As a result of that particular Section there was a delay. I regret that the request for a general inquiry was not made earlier, and I also regret the particular provision to which the right hon. Gentleman has...

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: It is from Van den Berghs Limited. The first paragraph contains the statement: A vast majority of retail and multiple grocers and provision merchants and wholesale distributors have made it abundantly clear that they strongly favour a price maintenance policy in support of the distribution of nationally advertised products. The next paragraph points out: Furthermore, evidence given at Public...

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Let us assume that that is accepted—and it may be that I am preaching to the converted. What should we do about it? With the exception of the 1948 Act, no serious attempt has been made in this country to deal with this problem by legislation. I do not want to burden the House with a lot of quotations, but perhaps I may be permitted to give one more. This was written by Professor Levy in his...

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: I am afraid that the right hon. Gentleman has misunderstood me.

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: May I answer his intervention in two parts? In the first place, I should feel hesitation about going into the Opposition Lobby with the right hon. Gentleman for this reason: having heard his views on such a vital report as the calico printing Report, which I regarded as a test case, I should find it difficult to go into the same Lobby with him, although on many occasions we differ from the...

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: I think the hon. Member will agree that prominent Liberals had a large part in the formation of co-operative societies in the first place.

Monopolies (24 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: That would be only an interim measure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Personal Case (28 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Health why, in view of the independent medical report from a leading specialist, the mental deficiency order under which Kathleen Bradley, St. Margaret's Hospital, Great Barr, Birmingham, has for many years been detained, though at present allowed out on full licence, has not been discharged.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Personal Case (28 Feb 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this unfortunate woman has been detained more than twenty-one years and there does appear to be evidence at least to suggest that she should never have been detained? Is that to be reviewed? At the same time, may I take the opportunity of asking if the Minister is quite satisfied that, pending the report of the Royal Commission, everything possible is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Films (3 Mar 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Education what steps he is taking to encourage the use of, and aid the production of, educational films and, in particular, films which will assist the teaching of science in schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Films (3 Mar 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the Minister aware that at present, owing to lack of funds, no educational films are being made and that in this respect this country compares unfavourably with a number of other countries? Is he aware that if a grant were made to the Educational Foundation for Visual Aids it would enable films to be produced which would be of considerable advantage to, and play an important part in,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Science Films (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the Minister aware that the four films to which he referred have been very highly praised by science teachers? Is he also aware that if a grant were made industry would be prepared to contribute and probably would double the value of the grant?

Oral Answers to Questions — Basutoland: Administrative Reforms (Report) (17 Mar 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the hon. Gentleman not aware that there is not only a strong but a very representative body of opinion in Basutoland in favour of the formation of a legislative council? As that is in accordance with the traditions of British policy, can he say whether it is still under consideration?

Oral Answers to Questions — Atlantic Assembly (5 Apr 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Is there not a risk of being over-cautious in this matter? Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that the European Assembly has achieved considerable success in bringing about better mutual understanding between the representatives of member States? Might not it be worth while to try to extend that experiment to include Parliamentarians from the United States and Canada?

The Prime Minister: Tributes to Sir Winston Churchill and Welcome to Sir Anthony Eden (6 Apr 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: In the absence of my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies), who has asked me to say how very greatly he regrets his inability to be here today, I should like to add a few words of tribute to one whom the Leader of the Opposition has rightly described as the outstanding figure of our parliamentary life, and, if I may say so, also one who is beloved by the...
