Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Government Servants (Pensions and Seniority) (30 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: The right hon. Gentleman said "can be preserved". Does he mean that in fact they are preserved?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National and Local Expenditure (Review) (28 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now make a statement on Her Majesty's Government's review of the relationship between national and local expenditure.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National and Local Expenditure (Review) (28 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that it is over seven months since the decision to carry out this reform was announced by the Minister of Housing and Local Government, and that if no conclusion is to be reached until the Allen Committee has reported—and since this Committee does not report until the autumn—it means that there will be no major changes before the new rate demands go out...

Oral Answers to Questions — Southern Rhodesia: Emergency Regulations (Flogging) (21 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies what instructions he has given to the Governor of British Guiana regarding the reintroduction of flogging as a punishment in the Colony.

Oral Answers to Questions — Southern Rhodesia: Emergency Regulations (Flogging) (21 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the Minister really think that the use of flogging can in any way help to resolve the conflict? Does it not play into the hands of these who are trying to blame Britain and who are suggesting that Britain is adopting reactionary measures? Surely, the introduction of flogging is about the worst thing to do.

Business of the House (16 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Will there be a statement tomorrow, or early next week, on the subject of the Post Office workers' dispute? Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman consult his right hon. Friend the Postmaster-General on a problem which is causing some concern? A number of pensioners, including public service pensioners, receive their pensions by post. Could a statement be made as soon as possible about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Telephone Service: Amplified Telephone Handsets (Charges) (7 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: As there are great variations in the cost of providing subscribers with a telephone service according to the distance from the exchange, is there any objection in principle to providing these amplified telephone handsets in a comparatively small number of cases for the benefit of the physically handicapped and deaf to enable them to be linked to the telephone? Surely it would be in the...

Federation of South Arabia (New Constitution) (7 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: May I ask for a little further clarification about the transfer of the sovereignty of Aden in part to the Federation? Will this be subject to confirmation at elections to be held in Aden? Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that the electorate is sufficiently wide and representative to ensure that the wishes of the people of Aden are clearly known?

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: In paragraph 3 of their White Paper the Government say that They are satisfied that legislation on monopolies and restrictive practices on the present lines effectively meets the particular requirements of this country. It seems to me, however, that publication of the White Paper in itself is evidence that existing legislation has not yet effectively met the country's needs in the matter of...

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Yes, but it is not made illegal, that is, it is not an offence.

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Yes, but I would take it a little further. I am suggesting that it should be made illegal in the criminal sense, that certain well known restrictive practices—I am using that as a general term—should actually be made an offence, along the lines of legislation in the United States. I do not say that because something is done in the United States it is necessarily best for other countries...

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am inclined to think that it is too weak. I was going on to say that it is most important that the position should be abundantly clear. I have no wish to create a lot of new offences, but I think it better that the business community should know exactly where it stands, there being a risk, as in America, of directors being found guilty of an offence if they ignore the law.

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Yes, but that comes at the end of a rather lengthy procedure. That is the point I am trying to make. If I may give an example, when we were considering the Resale Prices Bill, I endeavoured to advance the proposal—the new Clauses were not actually called—that certain actions on the part of the manufacturers or suppliers in forcing shopkeepers out of business, to put it in the simplest...

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: A fine. Obviously, if there were contempt of court and one persisted in disobeying the court, the ultimate sanction under the procedure of any court would be imprisonment. But, in talking about penalties, I had a fine in mind. Once the position became known it would be most unlikely that offences would be committed.

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I take that point, but I am at issue on the question whether it is operating satisfactorily, and I am very much concerned, also, about the delays which may result from adding a further burden to the procedure already in operation. As regards the existing procedure—this is my second point—I agree that we must try to stop up the loopholes by adding information agreements and we must try to...

Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices (6 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I summarise my six points. First, in certain cases there should be a banning of some restrictive practices. Secondly, there should be a speeding up of the work of the Restrictive Practices Court. Thirdly, there should be a determined attempt to tackle mergers and monopolies and to ensure a more expeditious working of the Monopolies Commission. Fourthly, there should be the setting up of a new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teachers, West Riding (2 Jul 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Can the right hon. and learned Gentleman give the breakdown in the figures he gave between men and women?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause No. 1. — (Preservation of Pension Rights.) (30 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move, That the Clause be read a Second time. The purpose is to encourage superannuation schemes under which the employees are not deprived of the benefits under the fund when they move to other employment. It is also intended to facilitate the transferability of pension rights. There is a distinction between preservation and transferability. I do not propose to go into all the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause No. 1. — (Preservation of Pension Rights.) (30 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I can assure the hon. Member that in this case it was not so much the influence of Beveridge that resulted in the wording of the Clause; it was rather the difficulty of devising a Clause that would be called at all.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause No. 1. — (Preservation of Pension Rights.) (30 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman will agree that in terms of money values that is only a very limited proportion of the total money provided by superannuation schemes.
