Clause 10. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1963–64.) (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I am not going to enter into this auction between the hon. Member for Grimsby (Mr. Crosland) and the hon. Lady the Member for East Grinstead (Mrs. Emmet) as to what is a large amount of capital. I should like to refer to another subject which is relevant to this Clause. Under this Clause the standard rate of Income Tax will be retained at 7s. 9d. in the £. I think that this is an...

Clause 10. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1963–64.) (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I did not use the word "panacea". The hon. Gentleman must be fair. I said that it was a very valuable document well worth studying. At least, I said words to that effect, and I did not use any exaggerated phraseology. It is a very useful document.

Clause 12. — (Amendments to Part Viii of Act of 1952 (Personal etc. Reliefs).) (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move in page 9, line 37, to leave out "£320" and to insert "£390".

Clause 12. — (Amendments to Part Viii of Act of 1952 (Personal etc. Reliefs).) (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Thank you, Sir William. In moving my Amendment, I shall refer also to the Amendments in lines 39 and 42, because the three fit together. Their effect is to increase personal reliefs. In the case of the married couple, the increase would be from £320 to £390, an increase of £70. In the case of the single person, it would be from £200 to £235, an increase of £35, and in the case of a...

Clause 12. — (Amendments to Part Viii of Act of 1952 (Personal etc. Reliefs).) (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I will not argue about that. In the case of the children's allowance, which I mention in passing, for a child under 11 years of age the increase is from £100 to £115, an increase of £15 or 15 per cent. In the case of a child aged between 11 and 16, it is an increase of 12 per cent., and for a child over 16 an increase of 10 per cent. The result of the changes seems to be to improve...

Clause 12. — (Amendments to Part Viii of Act of 1952 (Personal etc. Reliefs).) (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I have made my own estimate of what the cost would be, but I have no doubt we shall be given the figure later on. I have made my own estimate, but I think that probably the Government could give an accurate figure. [HON. MEMBERS: "What is the hon. Member's?"] My own estimate is about £200 million, but the Treasury is in a very much better position to give a precise figure, and I think it...

Finance Bill (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Last week I tabled a Question for a Written Answer in which I asked for figures. When I was speaking earlier this afternoon I did not know that the Answer had been sent to me. It has not reached me. But I think it fair to acknowledge the fact that the Answer has been sent. As I said in my speech, one has to consider the overall picture and one cannot consider a proposal such as this by...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Information as to Gaming.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: On a point of order. As I have been here throughout the debate—[Interruption.]

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Information as to Gaming.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I may not have heard exactly what the Economic Secretary said. But if I may be permitted to clear up any misunderstanding, I would say that I have been in the Chamber since three o'clock, except when I went out to answer a telephone call and to sign some letters.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Information as to Gaming.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Will the hon. Member allow me—

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: We should consider this matter very carefully indeed before approving this Clause. When the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that the Excise Duty on tobacco dealers' licences was to be abolished it sounded reasonable enough, but I believe that there is more in this than merely the abolition of a duty which yields a small return to the Treasury. I understand the return is worth about...

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I listen to what other hon. Members have to say and, if I wish to intervene, I get to my feet to do so.

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I will not argue with the hon. Member on this subject. I think that I have a complete answer, although it would not be relevant to the Clause. I was saying that one must recognise the harmful effects of smoking, especially on young people. We cannot ignore the Report of the Royal College of Physicians of London, published in March, 1962, which pointed out that there is a strong statistical...

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: That is the point. Unless he has fixed premises—

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: That is one of the points which the police make. Anybody selling from fixed premises—say, a tobacconist's shop—exercises caution in selling to children, but there is always the risk that the licence may be taken away from somebody who breaks the law.

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Yes, I am obliged to my hon. Friend. That is the burden of the article which I have quoted from the Police Review. I must express concern and raise this query about the effect of the repeal of the Sections of the Customs and Excise Act, 1952. This will mean that cigarettes can be sold anywhere without control and without the necessity of obtaining any kind of licence.

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I entirely agree. I start with the basic principle—

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I am greatly provoked, Mr. Blackburn, and I would very much like to deliver a lecture on the philosophy of both Liberalism and liberty, but I respect your ruling and will return to the subject. It is only recently that the system of collection of the duty has been changed. I recognise that if this small duty is to be collected annually, the cost of collection is probably considerable in...

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Does the hon. Gentleman appreciate that the retail tobacconists assist in raising a very large sum of revenue and that they are unpaid tax collectors? Surely this is a reasonable amount when compared with the total amount of revenue raised from the sale of tobacco and cigarettes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Disabled Police Officers (Awards) (9 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to enable police officers who are permanently injured in the course of duty to receive benefits not less favourable than would be received if the injury came within the provisions of the Industrial Injuries Act.
