Gentleman whether there is any system of priorities in dealing with the subjects referred to the Monopolies Commission, as in the case of tea, which has a direct and important bearing on the household budget?

Oral Answers to Questions — Parliamentary Debates (Broadcast Discussions) (8 Nov 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the Prime Minister aware that there is here an issue of some constitutional importance? Is it right that political parties in Parliament should attempt to dictate to individuals who are not Members of Parliament what they should or should not discuss? Furthermore, is it right that such a principle should become established before it has been debated or voted on by the elected...

Gentleman aware that when housewives complain, as they do, about the high cost of bacon, it is difficult to satisfy them with the statement that they must await the report of the Reorganisation Commission for Pigs and Bacon?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Potato Crop (24 Nov 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the right hon. Gentleman approve of the artificial restriction of acreage by the Potato Marketing Board?

Orders of the Day — First Schedule. — (Amendments of Purchase Tax Rates.) (8 Dec 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: I welcome and support the Amendment. It is true that at first sight it seems to me a little puzzling. There is a double negative, or a double-double negative in it, but I think that the House understands the purpose of the Amendment. There is little doubt that the inclusion of household brushes, brooms and mops in the category of goods subject to Purchase Tax would have led to a number of...

Orders of the Day — First Schedule. — (Amendments of Purchase Tax Rates.) (8 Dec 1955)

Mr Donald Wade: I will endeavour to follow your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. The firm engaged in this trade, to which the Amendment applies, pointed out that the proposal to impose Purchase Tax had caused very considerable confusion in the trade, and it is clear, from an examination of that case—although I hope their problem has now been resolved—that it has been resolved only after many hours of...

Can he say how soon the...
