Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 3. — (Three-Year Extension of Key Industry Duty.) (6 Jun 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: I shall resist the temptation to enter into a debate upon the fundamental errors of the Protectionist philosophy, despite the new display of unity between the Conservative and Socialist parties, but I think it would be unfortunate if we left the discussion of this subject without some reference to the harmful effects which these import duties may have, particularly upon our defence programme....

Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.): Clause 16. — (Suspension of Initial Allowances.) (7 Jun 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: There is a danger, and the Economic Secretary will agree with me, in regarding the re-armament drive as contained within a short-term programme. It will succeed only if we are able to finance it, and the nation will not be able to finance it unless industry is modernised and becomes more efficient with everything possible being done to encourage new processes. Something should be done; it is...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: It would be helpful if the Minister, when he winds up the debate, could clear up one point on the subject of the comprehensive school. I understood the Parliamentary Secretary to say that he favoured variety but that if a local education authority adopted the policy of building comprehensive schools as an experiment he would welcome it. What was not quite clear to me was whether, if a...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: I hope that the overriding view is that which has been expressed, namely, that the Government are in favour of variety of schools in our educational system. The right hon. Lady the Member for Moss Side (Miss Horsbrugh) referred in her opening remarks to the Report. I agree with her comments. It would have been better if we had had a survey of the first half of the century, and a separate...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: Perhaps the Parliamentary Secretary will inform the Committee on the matter. I understand that that does not apply to decisions as to the amount of a grant to be made by local education authorities.

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: There is a good deal of feeling amongst students on this subject, and I am only passing forward to the hon. Gentleman the information given to me, when I say that a number of potential teachers are deterred from going to the universities because of this inequality and inadequacy of the grants in the case of those who do not receive State scholarships. In conclusion, I am only too well aware...

Oral Answers to Questions — African Territories: U.N. Trusteeship Committee (Herero People) (29 Nov 1951)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations why the British representative at the Trusteeship Committee of the United Nations was instructed to oppose the motion that the leaders of the Herero people should be invited to appear before the Committee.

Orders of the Day — Education (25 Mar 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: Before referring to the more controversial subject of the circulars, I wish to refer to the disparity in grants for students going to universities, which has already been mentioned in the debate. I raised this matter in the education debate last summer. I understand that, not only is there a great disparity according to the different districts from which students come, but also among students...

Orders of the Day — Education (25 Mar 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: Many of them are unsatisfactory, I know, but I should like to know whether surveys are being made of such buildings with a view to temporary use. Another suggestion, which, I agree, is unorthodox is that, without lowering the standard of our teachers, it might be practicable to make use, for the teaching of children under seven, of some girls who have passed through the secondary modern...

Orders of the Day — Education (25 Mar 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I quite agree that harm can be done by unskilled people, but the point I am making is that it is not merely academic training that is required. I remember my first day at school very well—[Interruption.] An hon. Member asks me what weapon the master used. He boxed my ears for not paying attention. He was excellent at getting boys through examinations, but I do not think that he was a...

Orders of the Day — European Situation (14 May 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I welcome the remarks of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Aston (Mr. Wyatt), and if I do not follow his exact theme and do not repeat his arguments it is because I feel that he has already put them very ably. In listening to the opening speeches of the debate I gathered the impression that there was a large measure of agreement between the Foreign Secretary and the Leader of the Opposition,...

Orders of the Day — European Situation (14 May 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: If the hon. Gentleman wishes it—tri-partisan. Be that as it may, it is clear that there are some hon. Members who do not accept the view of the Foreign Secretary, and I gather that they wish to see a postponement of the signing and ratification of the agreements which will follow the contractual negotiations and the agreements for E.D.C.—a postponement not merely until elections have...

Germany: Contractual Agreements and E.D.C. (10 Jun 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: If it should so happen that the Contractual Agreements are ratified by all the Governments concerned but not the E.D.C. Treaty, will the terms of the Contractual Agreements be put into effect, or am I right in understanding from the right hon. Gentleman's statement that the one is dependent on the other?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Union Recognition (Terrington Report) (11 Jun 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he is now able to announce a decision on the Terrington Report and on the claim for recognition made by the Engineering Officers' (Telecommunications) Association.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Union Recognition (Terrington Report) (11 Jun 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: May we have an assurance that in consideration of the Terrington Report due regard is being paid to the declaration of human rights and the principles of freedom of association?

Post Office Staff Associations (Government Decision) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: Am I right in understanding from the hon. Gentleman's statement that for the time being, at any rate, his noble Friend has not discarded the principle underlying the Listowel formula?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 3. — (Disposal of Houses by Local Authorities.) (8 Jul 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I rise only to raise a point of interpretation. In the Amendment, we read that no general consent is to be given under this subsection. The words are "no general consent," and not "no consent." Under subsection (2), we read that the consent of the Minister may be given generally either to all local authorities or to any authority, and either in relation to all houses or to any house or...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 3. — (Disposal of Houses by Local Authorities.) (8 Jul 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I welcome the proposal to increase the period from four to five years, but I doubt whether that is adequate, and I hope that the Minister will consider favourably extending it to seven years. May I very briefly give my reasons for expressing this view? Neither I nor my party are opposed to the main object of this Bill. It is a Bill which we support. My Liberal colleagues and I are...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 3. — (Disposal of Houses by Local Authorities.) (8 Jul 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: Would the hon. Gentleman clear up this point? Does he take the view that a right of pre-emption would deter a tenant who wishes to be an owner-occupier from buying? Why would the period of pre-emption—the right of the local authority to buy back if and when the man wishes to sell—deter him from buying the house at all?

Orders of the Day — Monopolies Commission (23 Jul 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: We have had a very interesting dissertation—and I hope that word will not be taken as disrespectful—on the subject of the word "monopoly." The actual words in the Title, I notice, are: any conditions of monopoly or restriction or other analogous conditions. think it would be splitting hairs to suggest that the use of the word "monopoly" was inappropriate when we really mean monopolistic...
