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

Mr Donald Wade: On this subject there was a very interesting comment in the "Financial Times" on 14th November, 1951. If hon. Members will bear with me I will read part of the leading article. It referred to the subject of electric lamps. It said: General service electric lamps provide one of the few examples of goods whose price has been substantially reduced since before the war. The index of retail...

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

Mr Donald Wade: I think it only fair that I should examine the remedies proposed. If I were to find that they were along the lines that I have been advocating for many years, I should most certainly support them.

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

Mr Donald Wade: The hon. Gentleman will appreciate that I was reading from the "Financial Times," and the view that I am putting forward—which I still think is true—is that publicity has its value.

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

Mr Donald Wade: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will take up the matter with the editor of the "Financial Times." The filing of certain essential information, thus making available facts which at present are not generally known, would be of value both to Parliament and to the general public. In the speech of the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for St. Helens, to which I have already referred, the...

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

Mr Donald Wade: —but I do not propose to pursue that, as I believe other hon. Members will be dealing with it in this debate. Let me make two general observations in conclusion. This is a matter of grave importance in the first place because it inevitably affects the cost of living, and there was no time when the subject of the cost of living was of greater urgency and importance than it is today. But...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Housing (Repairs and Maintenance) (14 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps he proposes to take to check the serious wastage of housing accommodation resulting from the inability of many owners of rent-restricted properties to-afford the expense of carrying out necessary repairs.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Housing (Repairs and Maintenance) (14 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that this is a matter for great urgency? Does he agree that the deterioration of property resulting from disrepair is most serious during winter months, and another winter will be shortly upon us? In view of that, can he give some assurance that some action will be taken?

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I should have been happier if we had been discussing a Bill rather than a White Paper. It is 12 months since the announcement was made that legislation would be introduced, and those 12 months have added to the suspense from which the industry has been suffering. I hope that when the proposed Bill is introduced, there will not be very much further delay. If this is to be done it is better...

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I have here the statement made in January. I shall not trouble the House by reading out the statement. [HON. MEMBERS: "Read it."] The statement made in January of this year?

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I remember the occasion to which the hon. Gentleman refers. I appreciate the point he is making. It was in the last Parliament. A statement was made, and I had something to do with drawing up that statement. So far as that Parliament was concerned, we felt that there had been enough time spent on debating this subject. The statement only applied to the duration of that Parliament.

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I have not got that statement here, but I recollect it. I should be only too pleased to get the statement in due course. I did take some part in drawing it up and I am certain that it related to the duration of that particular Parliament. We felt there had been a sufficient number of debates during that Parliament. It is well within my recollection.

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I do not want to take up a long time debating this point. The subject had been raised on a number of occasions by the Opposition and we felt, rightly or wrongly, that on that occasion, having debated it again, we had debated it enough during that Parliament. That was the point and the whole point. Then in January of this year a statement was issued putting forward our views, which we hold...

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I appreciate that the attitude to the White Paper depends to a large extent on hon. Members' views on the whole issue of nationalisation. When the right hon. Member for Lewisham, South (Mr. H. Morrison) opened for the Opposition, he made the statement that he and his colleagues would vote against this Motion. I think it would have been better if that statement had been made at the end of the...

Iron and Steel Industry (Government Policy) (23 Oct 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I have already expressed my own views in debates on previous occasions about the need for reform in the case of the Monopolies Commission, and I hope that there soon will be some reform. To sum up, surely it is most important that the Bill should define as clearly as possible the powers of the Board and the powers of the Minister, for two reasons. One is because, as a nation, we should know...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (1 Dec 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: And ideologically.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (1 Dec 1952)

Mr Donald Wade: I can assure the hon. Member for Pembroke (Mr. Donnelly) that I do not claim to be a skeleton in the Labour Party's cupboard, although some of the views that I may express will, perhaps, not be so unacceptable to him as he appeared to anticipate. Before proceeding, I should like to refer to another remark of the hon. Member for Pembroke, who cast some doubts on the attempts to make known the...

Oral Answers to Questions: Repairs and Maintenance (20 Jan 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Would the hon. Gentleman agree that it is not only in the London area that many houses are falling into disrepair and becoming uninhabitable? Do I understand from his previous reply that he has no precise proposals in mind at all?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Anglo-Brazilian Trade (5 Feb 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the President of the Board of Trade what progress has been made in the encouragement of trade with Brazil; what steps have been taken to facilitate payment of British exporters for goods sold to purchasers in Brazil; and, in particular, what arrangements have been made to liquidate payments outstanding to British publishers and book exporters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Anglo-Brazilian Trade (5 Feb 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Can the right hon. Gentle-can give any indication of the extent to which outstanding balances are being reduced in favour of British exporters, and what are the prospects for the immediate future?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Small Companies (Death Duties) (5 Feb 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has now considered the representations made to him on the effect which liability to Estate Duty has on small and medium sized companies; and whether, having regard to the fact that forced sales of shareholdings encourage amalgamations and ultimate monopoly, he will institute a public inquiry into the effect of death duties on the structure of...
