Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: I appreciate that, but it is only in very extreme cases. As to permanent legislation, I feel that it would be outside the scope of the discussion on this Bill to give at any length my views as to what should be done.

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: If I may put my view briefly, our aim should, be first, to remove the injustices which undoubtedly exist and, second, to encourage the ownership of property by occupiers, and, particularly in the case of dwelling houses, I would favour the tenant having the right, with due safeguards, to apply for the transfer of the freehold. I am only speaking in very general terms, but those are my views....

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: I appreciate that. The real remedy, in the long run, is the overhaul of the Rent Restriction Acts.

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: I support Part II of the Bill, which gives the retailer greater security of tenure. I have already mentioned that I should like to see this extended to other business tenants. I have always been a critic of the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1927. I can recollect the outcry about the leasehold system which led to the introduction of that Act. I can remember being very critical of the Act, I admit...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: The Landlord and Tenant Act, 1927, was intended to give greater security of tenure, but so many conditions were inserted for the benefit of the landlord that it has not been of very great value to the business tenant, particularly as regard security of tenure. As hon. Members will appreciate, the tenant has to prove a great deal before he gets a renewal of a lease. He has to prove that he is...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: Yes, but I thought it only right to mention it. On the general position, taking the leasehold system throughout the country as a whole, I do not find myself able to accept the argument about sanctity of contract in this respect because, while we do not know a great deal about the circumstances when the leases were originally created, it seems probable that there was not equality between the...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Property (Temporary Provisions) Bill (6 Dec 1950)

Mr Donald Wade: I hesitate to speak for the whole of the Liberal Party. [Laughter.] I made that remark well knowing that it would probably cause laughter at my expense. I believe that a distinction has to be made between dwelling-houses and business premises, but I think I am right in saying that that is still the long-term aim of the Liberal Party.

Clause 1. — (Continuation of Expiring Long Tenancy Where Tenant in Occupation.) (30 Jan 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: My "preliminary observations" will be very brief and I hope relevant. I think it is clear that Part I of the Bill is intended primarily to deal with ground leases, but the point which we have to keep in mind is that this is a "standstill Measure," to use the expression used by the Attorney-General. It is an attempt to maintain the status quo between the landlord and the tenant until...

Clause 1. — (Continuation of Expiring Long Tenancy Where Tenant in Occupation.) (30 Jan 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: When discussing an earlier Amendment I suggested that all these Amendments must be considered in the light of the fact that the Bill is a standstill Measure. We are waiting for legislation of a more permanent nature and we do not wish those who are to benefit from that legislation to be put at a disadvantage by the delay. That, I think, we must accept; but there is a limit to which one should...

Clause 1. — (Continuation of Expiring Long Tenancy Where Tenant in Occupation.) (30 Jan 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: It is a matter of degree of hardship. I said that I did not think that there would be great hardship in the case of a man who buys the tail end of a lease.

Orders of the Day — Overseas Resources Development Bill: clause 2. — (Functions and Constitution of Overseas Food Corpora- Tion.) (7 Mar 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: I hope that the Minister will either accept the Amendment or give effect to the spirit of it by making some arrangement such as the hon. Member for Fife, East (Mr. Henderson Stewart) has suggested. This is not a wrecking Amendment. I understood from the Minister that if an investigation is carried out by a working party it will not interfere with the carrying on of the Scheme, but if there is...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Resources Development Bill: clause 2. — (Functions and Constitution of Overseas Food Corpora- Tion.) (7 Mar 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: But everything did not stop because a working party was making an investigation. Presumably, further investigation is contemplated. The Bill charges the Corporation with a duty. It is not merely an option, but a duty to secure an investigation. The suggestion is that independent persons should take part in the initial investigation. That is the essence of the proposal which is a reasonable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Industry (Consultations) (8 Mar 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many occasions have industrial and commercial organisations met the Civil Defence Joint Planning Staff since July, 1950, to consult on matters relating to Civil Defence in industry; and who their representatives were.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Industry (Consultations) (8 Mar 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: I am obliged for that information. Is the Minister aware that there is still considerable uncertainty as to whether firms should organise Civil Defence units in their own factories and among their own staff and that this uncertainty partially accounts for the delay in recruiting? Further, is he aware that there is a certain amount of feeling among Z and G reservists that they are being called...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prisons: Postal Voting (8 Mar 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: When the right hon. Gentleman is considering this matter, will he also consider introducing a Bill to rectify anomalies in the electoral system as well as anomalies of the electoral law?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill (26 Apr 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: I feel sure that there is the deepest concern for the old age pensioners on both sides of the House. So far as it goes, this Bill will be heartily welcomed as some contribution towards the relief of the old age pensioners. The background problem is, of course, the growing proportion of elderly people and the growing cost of pensions to the community. The question we have to consider,...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill (26 Apr 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: Yes, it is loosely called the means test.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill (26 Apr 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: I am referring to the needs test.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill (26 Apr 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: No. I am proposing that instead of the limit of £2 which a pensioner may earn without forfeiting his pension, we should endeavour to simplify the system and allow the pension to be paid whatever the earnings, save for the fact that the pensioner would be subject to Income Tax. Furthermore I deplore, as some hon. Members have already done, the differentiation in ages. That, again, I think...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill (26 Apr 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: How would the hon. Member apply that in cases where the husband is unable to continue work through sickness?
