Orders of the Day — Central African Federation (24 Mar 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Four main arguments have been put forward for the policy of adopting this federal scheme. One is the economic argument. It is very difficult for us to say with certainty to what extent the economic policy will succeed. Secondly, is the argument that Southern Rhodesia may wish to join up with the Union if the federal scheme is not adopted? I am not at all sure that the white settlers of...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Insurance: Old Age and Widows' Pensions (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the Minister not aware that among those in receipt of the 10s. a week pension there is a widespread feeling of injustice? The fact that increases in other pensions have been justified by the increased cost of living makes it difficult for these pensioners receiving 10s. a week to understand why they receive no increase.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Derating (19 May 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government to make a statement on the increasing burden of rates and the inequitable distribution of this burden; and how soon he expects to be in a position to take steps to amend the Derating Act, 1929.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Derating (19 May 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the Minister agree that the serious and increasing burden of rates falls particularly heavily on householders and shopkeepers, and would he agree that the conditions which applied to 1929 when the Derating Act was produced are very different from those that exist today?

Orders of the Day — Valuation for Rating Bill (21 May 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I was glad to hear the Parliamentary Secretary, in opening the debate, state that he anticipated that wider issues would be raised during the debate and that they would be dealt with by the Minister in replying. It is very difficult to discuss this Bill without entering into the larger problems of rating. Before making one or two observations on the Bill, I feel that I should declare an...

Orders of the Day — Valuation for Rating Bill (21 May 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I am dealing with that point. I do not want to deal at length with the Exchequer equalisation grant, but I think it fair to point out that the borough of Huddersfield, together with 27 other boroughs, receive no grant from the Exchequer Equalisation Fund. I do not propose to go into the reasons for that, but I would point out that one of the reasons for the injustice which is felt is the fact...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia and Nyasaland Federation Bill: Clause 1. — (Power by Order in Council to Establish Federation, etc.) (9 Jun 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Very much earlier in the debate the hon. Member for Leominster (Mr. Baldwin) referred to the Rev. Michael Scott. I think his remarks were rather unfortunate. I believe there is a very effective reply, but if I were to attempt to reply it would involve reference to actions and statements by the District Commissioner at Blantyre, which were ruled out of order in the debate on these Amendments;...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia and Nyasaland Federation Bill: Clause 1. — (Power by Order in Council to Establish Federation, etc.) (9 Jun 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I am raising this point on this Amendment because it affects very seriously my point about the advisability of this Amendment. As I understand the scheme there is no really effective assurance that there will be a democratic decision of all the people of these Territories. The words in the Preamble are "when the inhabitants of the Territories so desire," but the Preamble may have no legal...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia and Nyasaland Federation Bill: Clause 1. — (Power by Order in Council to Establish Federation, etc.) (9 Jun 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I will pass to another topic, upon which I think I should be in order, or at least I hope so. It affects the question as to whether there should be a referendum now. I appreciate the difficulties in taking a referendum. The advisability depends very largely, not on the Constitution but on statements of Government policy and statements of intention which have been made by the Colonial...

Orders of the Day — Valuation for Rating Bill: Title (9 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I wish to express my regret that the Minister is unable to be here. I sincerely hope that he will soon recover his full health. We appreciated the good humour and charm with which he piloted the Bill through the Committee. I should like to repeat a comment I made on Second Reading, which was also made during the Committee stage. It is true that the difficulties of the valuer are great—they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Korea (Truce Talks) (15 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: While I appreciate the practical difficulties, does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that recent events in South Korea have shown the need for a truly international police force to deal with acts of aggression, and the dangers inherent in a policy of building up the military strength of one particular nation which happens to be the victim of aggression?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Trade Unions (Recognition) (22 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Assistant Postmaster-General (1) whether he is now in a position to announce the result of his consideration of outstanding claims for recognition by Post Office associations; (2) whether he is now in a position to give his decision on the claim for recognition made by the Engineering Officers' (Telecommunications) Association.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Trade Unions (Recognition) (22 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Having regard to the proximity of the Recess, can the hon. Gentleman indicate when a statement will be made? Secondly, in the case of an association such as that mentioned in my Question, which would appear to have had a very strong claim for recognition for a number of years, and whose claim has been supported so outspokenly by Members of Her Majesty's Government, does it not seem hard that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Technical Officers (22 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the number of employees of the Technical Officer grade employed by his Department at the latest date in 1953 for which this information is available.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Piped Water Supply (Fluoridation) (23 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Would the hon. Lady agree that in most cases the users of a private water supply have no other source of supply, and that if they object to chlorination their only alternative is to do without? Would she agree that a heavy responsibility rests on the authority supplying the water to be satisfied that this process is not in any way harmful and that the objections are not justified?

Conscientious Objectors (23 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I am not a conscientious objector, and I have no particular qualifications for speaking either for or about conscientious objectors, although I respect those who sincerely and conscientiously believe that it is wrong to take part in war or to perform military service. I have some knowledge of the tribunals which hear these cases, although I have not attended in recent years. I think there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Trade Union (29 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he is now in a position to announce the result of his consideration of outstanding claims for recognition by Post Office associations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Trade Union (29 Jul 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: May I ask the hon. Gentleman whether, and, if so, when, there will be an opportunity for asking Questions on this subject in this House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Television (White Paper) (21 Oct 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: Will the Assistant Postmaster-General ask the Leader of the House to give an assurance to the House that when the proposals in this White Paper are debated in the House there will be, so far as he and his party can ensure it, a free vote?

Council of Europe (23 Oct 1953)

Mr Donald Wade: I have recently been reading a journal which I found among the papers of my late father which is entitled "The Review of Reviews Annual, 1889", and it has the rather imposing title "The United States of Europe on the eve of the Parliament of Peace." It was written by the late W. T. Stead and consists of a series of articles written by him while visiting the capitals of Europe shortly after...
